It is 4:00 in the morning and I cannot sleep because my heart is very heavy due to the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. Perhaps I may get a lot of heat from some of my subscribers, but I am willing to step out and pronounce my faith in God as well as my faith in humanity.
What really concerns me is what I am referring to as a “high-jacking” of the Christian values that many Americans hold dear to their heart. To begin I will stand on the side of our Beautiful Savior that died for us sinners. It breaks my heart to imagine how Jesus and His Father, God, must feel about His nation that we once stood for the value of ” In God We Trust “, and also other terms such as “The City on a Hill” “The Light Unto The World” and now in today’s culture it seems that Christianity has been taking a devastating blow to stabilizing the world for peace and unity.
I will not apologize if I offend anyone by my writings, nor will I debase someone for their sexual preference even though I am no different than many other Americans whose hearts have been broken because of the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. The problem I have is the actual sexual transgressions that have had a devaluing effect as we the people as a nation and we have held our Christian values dear to our heart for all of these years. Our Christian values have made us love our country even more.
The problem I have is the actual sexual transgressions and the promiscuity that must make God pause when many people are praying for America as well as the solemn request for God to heal our land. Unfortunately, our prayers are in vain because there is not the change in lifestyle through people being accountable for their actions.
In my opinion, and I really do not mean to tick anyone off by saying this, but Liberalism to me pretty much deletes God and righteousness out of their lifestyles. I mean how many true Liberals do you know that have a strong faith in God and follow His word? Liberals are too busy demanding that we need to accept them into society, which I believe we have all along. It is just this last couple of years that things have gotten out of control. It has been push, push, push by forcing their lifestyles on us, the majority of us who believe in “live and let live until it affects me and my children”. Speaking of which how should a child understand adult matters when it comes to gay people holding hands and kissing their lover in public? We need to pray for people to be awakened to how their lifestyles and how they are affecting others.
God wants to heal our land and for us to have a sincere relationship with Him the way He would like for us to have with Him, especially when it seems like God is separating the wheat from the tares. It just makes me horrified to think of what is in store for us if we as a nation does not repent, individually as well as collectively. We are ripe in iniquity, probably worse than the days that Sodom and Gomorrah ended up being destroyed because of their iniquity.
I like many other Americans are heart broken because of how passive and accepting people have become when it comes to sin. We see our nation going down the tube because of people that want to destroy our Christian values of which has defined America the hope of the world to keep the world from falling apart. Liberalism is the challenge we face as a nation that is on the brink of destruction because of our inability to stop political correctness and the life of sin that all of us have contributed to the declination of America.
Do you know what the difference is between a non-practicing believer and a practicing believer is? A practicing believer knows we are sinners and we know that we have to repent often and even if it takes repenting every day we do not want to have that sin keep us in spiritual as well as emotional bondage.
This piece is probably one of the hardest posts that I have ever written because I am sad, I am bewildered, I am afraid for mankind being so ripe in iniquity. I am having a difficult time being faithful to our future as a nation and what God will do to us if we do not repent and turn our hearts to Him so that He can heal our nation. Evil is so ramped right now that most of us can feel the effects. Perhaps that could be why radical Muslims feel like they have the right to wipe us off the face of the Earth because they see our sin and they see our false pride. We have not been good examples of a nation with religious liberty or of good report, we have become selfish and prideful in the way we do our business around the world. Our foreign policy is probably the worst illustration of this than any other thing. We should have never gone into the Middle East and ravage those nations by tearing apart their
Perhaps that could be why radical Muslims feel like they have the right to wipe us off the face of the Earth because they see our sin and they see our false pride. We have not been good examples of a nation with religious liberty or of good report, we have become selfish and prideful in the way we do our business around the world. Our foreign policy is probably the worst illustration of this than any other thing. Times have changed in the twentieth century and we have to roll with a better foreign policy to reflect the times that have changed.
2 Chronicles 7:14King James Version (KJV)
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
