I'm not the most moral person on earth, nor am I the most religious, but even I can see how much we've been tempting God to abandon us.
If God leaves this country, our technology means nothing. Our riches, our innovations, our heritage, and even our determination would mean nothing without God's blessing. Ashes. Destruction. Humiliation. That is our future if we do not make it clear that we want God to rule over our land, to be welcome in every public building. God looks to the King to decide the kingdom's fate. The voter is the King. And the voter has treated God like a whipped dog. The voter once had the excuse of ignorance. But that excuse no longer cuts it. The Truth is clear now. Knowing right from wrong is not as difficult as it was in years past. This is one of God's greatest blessings, the internet. God has blessed us beyond imagining. If all of His blessings are to be misused, if the voter allows the spitting upon God to continue, we as a nation are in for some terrible shocks.
Some on this forum will never comprehend until it's too late. God no longer feels welcome here. As a friend recently told me, 'God is a gentleman. He will not stay in a house He is not welcome in.' He has one foot out the door, and once He leaves, we will lose the great blessings He has lavished upon us. His blessings have been slowly fading already, His blessed light upon our land dimming, a spiritual coldness setting in that no blankets can cure, and a blindness to future dangers. Once we had half of the world's GNP, just after WWII. As usual, we were spared from having our major cities burned and bombed, unlike many other nations throughout the world. Pearl Harbor, while painful, was nothing like what England, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, and a host of other nations suffered. We turned to God in WWII. We prayed fervently. We united. Under God, we prevailed. A short time later, President Eisenhower added 'under God' to the Pledge of Allegience. Most Americans agreed with Ike that we should acknowledge the source of our nation's blessings.
But other people within this nation were determined to rid us of God. With some, it was semi-conscious, a yearning to see a world more accepting of hedonism. With others, it was part of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto, replacing worship of God with worship of government to achieve 'utopia'. Others piled on to look 'sophisticated' in the eyes of their 'enlightened' and 'uninhibited' colleagues. And yet others believed that the 'fairy tales' of religion were getting in the way of science. These people united to form an anti-Christian force. The Anti-Christians dominated the think tanks. They dominated the universities. They bought up the television stations. They did their best to control Hollywood [largely successful with a few exceptions]. And they dominated most of the major newspapers. And they still do. At first, they had a pretty 'big tent', attracting creative thought and individuality. But as their power grew, they became more restrictive and controlling. When Ted Turner brought cable television to the world, they snatched him right up, welcoming him into their circle, and poisoning his mind against Christians. A bit naive, Ted Turner spoke his mind publicly, saying that all the fun people would 'be in hell', and that is where he wanted to go. He made jokes about the Pope, and he was alarmed to see a beach on his private island shrinking in size.
The Democratic Party fell under their control, largely due to FDR's fascination with socialist intellectuals and ideas. Thus arose the Triangle of Anti-Christian Power: the DNC, the Colleges, and the Media. Through the colleges, the Legal Branch was corrupted. Through the Media, the DNC had tremendous power, constantly pressing Christian Conservatism into the defensive. They enjoyed watching the internet in its infancy, a harmless toy, they thought, which tempted people with pornography, driving them further from God. [That was probably their worst mistake.] Even so, their power grew to the point that 40 million unborn infants were legally murdered, and tax money was used to pay for art that mocked Christianity in the most vile ways imaginable. Those are the subjects I will start with tomorrow-- Infanticide and the NEA [National Endowment of the Arts].
Some on this forum will never comprehend until it's too late. God no longer feels welcome here. As a friend recently told me, 'God is a gentleman. He will not stay in a house He is not welcome in.' He has one foot out the door, and once He leaves, we will lose the great blessings He has lavished upon us.
This could be said even more strongly. God is sovereign, in control over everything. He provides the very laws of logic by which we (and His enemies) can even engage in rational discourse. I posit the departure of our nation from its Christian and Puritan roots is, in fact, a judgment of God against us, not merely our pushing him out of the public sphere (which is not possible for man to do).
Does this "naïve" verse from St. Paul's epistle to the Romans not describe our situation in striking detail? Read it carefully:
1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Only the blind, the so-called "enlightened ones", would be foolish enough not to see how everything described here is become manifest in our own day.
Thus the entire reason for the Gospel...When we choose to seperate ourselves from God we seperate ourselves from all that He has for us individually and even as a nation... It is the same way in death...WE choose where we are going to spend eternity. In the presence of All things God has created for us or total seperation from even the light of day that was created by Him...Imagine the worst dark, cold, lonely place. Or Imagine if you can...
Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations.
Rev 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
Rev 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name [shall be] in their foreheads.
Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
Yep. Seeds fell on good ground, bad ground and some in the weeds. Right now we seem to be the weeds and the good gets choked out.
AW!M...You've hit on a very important point here.
If people reject the rules of our Creator, He isn't one to stick around to beg 'n plea for their acceptance. And He certainly will not mollify, amend, or change His ways.
Yet, (some) humans will always be arrogant enough to think they know better than their Creator.
"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it." (2 Timothy 3: 1-5)
