The Problem With America…

The problem, or problems we are having in this country start getting very complex when we lose sight of the main problem that spawns all of the other problems.  We argue over, economics, politics, our rights, and many other ideas.  I just watched a video about a proposed mosque in Sterling Heights, Mich.  The city council was voting on whether or not to allow its construction.  There was a crowd outside that was overjoyed when it was voted down.  Here’s the rub, we are acting hypocritically.  We want to not allow a muslim mosque, but claim to be a country that protects all religions equally under the law.

So many of us, for so long, have been told that separation of Church and State is part of our foundation.   They have believed that it is the bedrock of our liberty.  I’m here to tell you it is time to choose a side.  We can’t continue to live this liberal lie.  It will NOT work.  So let’s choose Christ and not islam, mormonism, buddhism, or any other religion our founders would have called pagan, or savage, or false.  I know the left persists in their claims that our founding fathers were not Christian, but this is a flat out lie and we all know it.  They tell us that they never intended for this to be a Christian nation, but we know the truth.  Read some of the things they wrote and it becomes evident.  They called the natives, “savages.”  They called muslims, hindus, and buddists “pagans.”  They never intended for us to be a nation of pagans.  When they talked of freedom of religion, they meant we wouldn’t have a king telling us to be Catholics, Anglicans, or Protestants.

I for one, am sure of what this nation was intended to be, and so should you.  It was intended to be a Christian nation.  One under God.  If we would agree and come together under the banner of Christ we could collectively renounce all other religions and make no provisions for them in our laws or culture.  We could repent and turn back to God.  Remember what happened in the Old Testament over and over again?  Read 1st and 2nd Kings, 1st and 2nd Chronicles, well just read the entire Bible.  Over and over again, people, and nations would turn away from the worship of God in favor of the idols of foreigners.  They would stop worshiping the one true God and worship false gods.  God did not remain silent over these sins.  He judged them.  He judged them justly.  They suffered being enslaved, starved by famine so much so, that they ate their children, they suffered slaughter from pagan nations, and sometimes they would repent.  They would get a king that had a heart for God and he would lead them in repentance.

We as a nation are at the brink.  We are under judgment right now.  That is why things are the way they are.  What we need to do is be decisive.  We need to collectively repent and declare that we ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION!  Let’s abandon this foreign satanic liberal lie that Christianity is not our foundation!  It is the basis for our laws and our morals.  Even if the left won’t recognize it.  God is our source.  He sustains all creation by the power of His sovereign word.  So preach the gospel to your coworkers, neighbors, family, and friends.  Make disciples of all men.  Do it all for the glory of God.

If Politics And Government Are Not The Answer, What Is? (Part Two)

So to continue from the last article, I concluded that politics and government were not the answer to our problems as a nation. Some of the things that led me to conclude that were the scenarios I ran, presupposing that I would be in government. I thought, what could I do when the nameless representatives of some super-powerful, world-wide consortium, comes to me and says, “Vote this way, or your family will die in a house fire, or we will release these doctored pictures of you to the press, showing you with a prostitute in a hotel room with five pounds of cocaine, or you have a lot of money in your account right now, do what we say or people will find out, and ask questions.” These people are so powerful they answer to nobody. They are above the law. They have people killed, and direct the courses of the nations. They don’t do it for God. They do it for their real masters. I believe these are the powers and principalities of the Bible. Men who are so powerfully, influential who receive their marching orders from the devil, and his legions. As the Bible says, these men are not my enemies, they are controlled by them. If you kill these people, more people will fill their roles. It is pointless. I grew up in an America that no longer exists. We have to wake up to the real problem, it is sin. Mankind is totally depraved, and the only hope for us is Christ. We wonder to ourselves, why anyone would want socialism, acceptance of gay marriage, legalized gambling, legalized drugs, socialized medicine, minimum wages, labor unions, big government, no prayer in school, over-sexualized kids, gratuitous sex and violence on television, blasphemy of God and the Bible in the media, and on and on and on it goes. Total depravity, kidos! Our sinful natures drive us to all kinds of evil. What should we do? Preach the gospel to everyone we meet. Think about it, what would be more beautiful than a country full of devoted Christians who love Christ above all else? God says in His word that if we love Him we will obey His commands. If we all preached the gospel and made disciples of all men, if we obeyed this command, “…’YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND…” or this one, “…YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF…” or if we prayed for our enemies, What if we stayed married and worked it out, or Fathers were more than a paycheck and fix-it-man, or Mothers were more than a cook and shuttle service, what if we took responsibility for ourselves and families instead of insisting on some governmental fix? Think about how it would look compared to the secular Europe or the islamic middle east. Even if the world-wide government continues to work it’s evil will, we still have to focus on Christ and His goodness. We might not be able to ever change the course of the nation, but we are all responsible for our own sins and will be judged. We will be found in Christ or in the world. Personally, I like the famous hymn from Rhea F. Miller,

“I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
I’d rather be His than have riches untold;
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands;
I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Refrain:
Than to be the king of a vast domain
And be held in sin’s dread sway;
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause;
I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
I’d rather be true to His holy name
He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
He’s sweeter than honey from out the comb;
He’s all that my hungering spirit needs;
I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead “

So while we can, we need to repent and put our faith in Christ, the true hope of man.
