Unbelievers are not responsible for the ruin of this once Christian nation. We – God’s covenant people – are.
America is about to learn something that can be learned in no other way: there is no safety in distance from God. The notion that one can abandon God and yet still enjoy prosperity and protection is as much a lie today as it was in the Garden of Eden.
Remember God’s outrage to the killing of Abel by his older brother Cain? “What have you done? Your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10). If this is true, then you can bet that the cries of 55 million babies murdered in their mother’s womb in America is deafening.
American leaders turn a blind eye to Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts from aborted babies. Can we expect that Jehovah God will ignore this and refuse to respond? A nation that allows this savagery and cruelty is a monster created by secularists, a picture of disgrace, and that disgrace is a result of abandoning God for Secularism, the trust in man.
America can likely weather one of the most lawless presidential administrations in U.S. history. Whether the land of liberty can survive a people who would elect, and then reelect, President Barack Hussein Obama, that is the larger question.
Secularism’s eradication of a Biblically based culture has consequences. As Bible scholar John Oswalt writes:
The result of their [Christians] misplaced dependence will be to be ruled by those who are, figuratively speaking, children. To make great men the source of a nation’s greatness is always to end up with a dearth of great men. Unless the greatness comes from within the community itself, a condition which is ultimately the result of trust in God, no great leaders will rise from it. Instead, the leaders will merely reflect the spiritual poverty of the community.
Impotent Democrat leadership, followed by wimpy Republican leadership, has placed our freedoms at risk.
