God's Judging America: Hes Giving Us Gutless Leaders and Effeminate Men
Townhall.com ^ | October 27, 2013 | Doug Giles

Posted on 10/27/2013 5:54:11 AM PDT by Kaslin

Hey, reader: have you ever noticed the lack of men in our culture nowadays?

You haven’t?

Well, then allow me to be the first to tell you that you’re either…

a. Blind, undoubtedly deaf and you probably live in a van down by the river.

b. You’re simply not paying attention.

c. You are too young to have a historical reference point to when men were actually men and not giddy and roughed X-Factor hopefuls, or turkey-necked, unprincipled politicians, or earring sporting “ministers” of the “gospel”.

d. All of the above.

Now … please note that I didn’t say males but men; mature and responsible, demon-threatening machines who love leadership, the struggle and aren’t afraid to face head on internal or external obstacles and rank rubbish without crying like a chick about it.

This type of man is symbolized biblically in the prophet, patriarch, warrior and wild man; this is whom I am talking about as being more absent from our milieu than Miley Virus would be during an Os Guinness discussion about the leadership merits of Washington, Wilberforce and Solzhenitsyn.

I think this en masse societal distancing from masculinity and the systematic wussification of the male imago in a puerile environment of political correctness is more than just a flighty phenomenon. I think it’s a divine judgment.

I’m beginning to think old Yahweh is allowing this nation’s emasculation and letting American men morph into one big mangina. It’s not as dramatic as his previous plagues, but its effective, none-the-less, once the Peter Pans begin to rule the roost.

Yep, I still believe there is a God, and yes, I believe he’s still in the business of kicking a nation’s ass if it gets out of line; and by the looks of things, we’re out of line. Like, way out. Like, way, way, way out of line.

Like it or not, in biblical times God, if you take the Scripture straight, as I do my whisky, waylaid his wayward people when they became contumacious.

Typically, God usually did it via his normal tool bag of plagues, enemy attacks, pestilence, famine, festering butt itches, or through the means of a natural disaster like Barack Obama. Y’know … just a little “sumthin-sumthin” to wake up his people in an attempt to bring them back to their senses where they cease and desist their imitation of the various vacuous and idolatrous nations that surrounded them.

However, there is one holy butt whuppin’ that I find rather interesting and disturbing, which I’ve never heard pointed out by the increasingly scarce prophetic voices filling pulpits nowadays. It is the negative sanction Jehovah levied on Israel in Isaiah chapter three wherein he removed masculine leadership and the warrior from their midst, and egotistical chicks and Peter Pans ran the show.

Here’s a brief synopsis of Israel’s situation and God’s unique judgment of their rebelliousness drawn from Isaiah 3: 1- 26.

1. The Problem: Isa.3: 8,9,16-24 -- Israel and Judah’s speech and actions were rebellious, arrogant, and seductive. Sound familiar?

2. The Lord Arises to Contend: Isa.3: 13,14 -- The sin of God’s people brings on the holy “two-by-four” from heaven. Please note: God didn’t let their crap slide.

3. The Judgment: Isa.3: 1-5 -- God didn’t send a plague but instead he simply allowed for the systematic removal of masculine men from their nation; mighty men and warriors became a rare bird. Not only that but there was an eradication of judges, prophets, elders, captains of fifty, and honorable men. Does this ring a bell?

4. The Replacement Killers: Isa.3: 4-12 – The tools that filled the now vacant void of manly leadership roles were “lads” together with “capricious children and women (who) rule[d] them.” In other words, they said buh-bye to men of character, strength and integrity and said hello to flighty, whimsical narcissistic women and childish punks to govern their land.

5. The Resultant Affects: Isa.3: 5,12,25,26 -- The people were oppressed, youths stormed against the elders, the nobody was exalted over the somebody, spiritual deception ensued, the young men who would be men got squashed, the mighty ones died in battle, and eventually the nation regretted their chosen pusillanimous path and the land ultimately turned to crap.

Let’s recap shall we?

In Isaiah three, when God wanted to get the attention of his people who were in the process of blowing him off, in this instance, he simply removed masculine men from their midst and allowed selfish women and capricious males to run the place into the ground.

When the strong male presence was gone, then these three things became manifest in ancient Israel.

1. Israel’s prosperity got kicked to the curb.

2. Israel’s defenses against their enemy’s onslaughts weakened dramatically. Duh.

3. Israel’s captivity by enemy nations became not an “if” but a “when” venture. Indeed, minus testosterone in the house, it was just a matter of time before they became one of the surrounding nation’s prison chicks.

And that concludes our little lesson from Isaiah chapter three.

No doubt, the caterwaulers will dog pile on me and call me nutty for even believing in God, believing he still doles out blessings and curses and that America could be in the crosshairs for committing similar infractions as ancient Israel. Which is cool. I get it. Being a Christian ain’t en vogue nowadays. To which I offer this challenge to the naysayers:

Go ahead, ridicule God, mock his standards and do the opposite of what his word says. Go for it. I dare you. Also, continue to morph boys into sensitive little girls. Mandate that the Marines wear girly covers. Make the rest of our military kinder and gentler. Exalt metrosexuality, skinny jeans and weepy men who wear long scarfs and women’s deep V T-shirts. Knock yourself out.

In addition, continue to elect spineless and vapid narcissists to office. The more the merrier. Blow off traditional values and elevate the freakiest stuff known to mankind. Let’s see what happens. Let’s see what happens when EBT cards and an entitlement culture take root in this formally can-do nation. Go for it, no nuts. Go ahead and say character doesn’t matter and ridicule masculine traits. I’m sure China, Islam, Russia, and our neighbors down south and Communists worldwide will cheer you on and support your push for Emasculation Nation.

I’m also equally sure that as the anti-masculine crowd sees the obliteration of strong, principled dudes within our nation they’ll be giddy and, no doubt, it’ll feel like an emancipation; but I’ve got a feeling that this “freedom” will be short lived and our new path will lead to a brick wall, as it did in Isaiah chapter three.

But who knows? Maybe, the Bible could be full of fairy tales and Obama could really be on to something. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see, eh?

I’ll take it one step further. It is the gutless voter electing the gutless. Let’s not use leader in any sentence where gutless appears.

When state after state falls under the spell of same sex “marriage” and since 1973 abortion achieving “legal” status, at least in the eyes of the legal system, Marriage between a man and a woman being the last resort after living together, fatherless children, conceived by sperm donors, and a host of ten commandment issues, one has to ask what we can expect from a jealous God.

Unless you are talking about leaders in our homes, leaders in our churches, and most importantly, leaders in our hearts, I can only conclude that it is you, sir, who have it backwards.

In the Bible, God often judged His unbelieving people by giving them bad leaders, or by raising up destroyers in nearby nations.

It is up to us, as individuals, as groups, and as churches, from the bottom up (starting at the bottom of our own hearts, one by one) to return to Him with all our heart, might, soul, and strength. God gives us the leaders we deserve.

Don’t blame others. And don’t blame God. We should each start with our own heart, and work from there.

Bottom line is we do have gutless leaders and effeminate men. The war is really on real men, not women.

God gave Israel what they wanted. A king. He warned them what would happen when they got those kings. But, they wanted them any way. Those kings were mostly bad rulers, but for David and Solomon, both who had their spots also. But kings on earth are here to fail. There is ONLY ONE KING, and HE IS JESUS CHRIST. He is coming back soon, and all the world’s kings will hit their knees and confess by their mouths that HE IS KING! Get ready, cause it is coming. Nothing else in Bible prophesy has to happen before He returns. Only the filing out of the Church. When that last person is saved, HE RETURNS!!!

NONSENSE...God did not give us these things.

They come from satan, the god of this world...

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ro 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

God’s “giving us gutless wonders and effeminate men”?

No, but God does say something about reaching a point where he GIVES MEN OVER to degrading passions (Romans 1:26ff)
and
depraved minds to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossips,slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; knowing the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death,they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them (Romans 1:28-32).

Sounds just like our nation and all the nations of the world...

The cure:

The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Gentile). For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”
(Romans 1:16-17)

Yes, God is giving us these things. He gives man what he wants. God also causes these kings of earth to do the things that bring judgment upon a land. Obama is America’s judgment. For what America is and what it has become. Apostate to the max. Our #1 export is PORN!! We have murdered over 55 million unborn babies. Homosexuals and homo marriage is an accepted way of life here now! Yup, God IS bringing His judgment to America and America ain’t gonna like it!

They're not "accepted", they're "celebrated".

Rudyard Kipling told us a century ago this day would come:

...

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Why should God save this nation?

1) Abortion: Millions can show up to buy a chicken sandwich but can't figure out how to end abortion legally and peacefully? Really?

2) Our nation's godless K-12 socialist/collectivist/entitlement schools are stuffed full to the brim with the children of Christians and conservatives. Shame on them! These kids **will** learn to think and reason godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the godless classroom. Just by being in a socialist school the child risks learning to be comfortable with accepting socialism. Yet...Christians and conservatives seem OBLIVIOUS to the danger of exposing their young to godlessness and socialist indoctrination and absolutely are doing very little to rescue their children or to shut these ABOMINATIONS down.

3) Nearly every teacher in this nation, in both private and government schools, was trained by godless Marxists in Marxist-run colleges of education. They are hard at work in turning our nation's boys into emasculated girlie boys.

Some may have noticed that i am not as active on the schooling threads. Why?

Answer: I believe it is now too late.
