What is Wrong in America
There is a Battle Raging All Over the World
Are We More Concerned With the Spiritual Matters than With Material Matters?
Many things continue to be right in America. Many, people are inspired by love and still care for those who are in need of food, shelter, and spiritual attention. Some donate money to the same organizations who take care of those above who are less fortunate.
American churches should be more involved in the process of helping those less fortunate. I do realize that many of the body of Christ already have. The spiritual warfare rages on in America and the world.
The examples above are merely examples of a much greater problem which is common in the digression of a nation like America and the ones that preceded her. The stages of national progression are:
1) From bondage to spiritual faith,
2) from spiritual faith to great courage,
3) from great courage to liberty,
4) from liberty to abundance,
5) from abundance to selfishness,
6) from selfishness to complacency,
7) from complacency -> apathy,
8) from apathy to moral decay,
9) from moral decay to dependence,
10) and finally from dependence back to bondage.
Can you see America in this sequence of progression?
Let us examine what I believe to be one of America’s biggest problems. To state in plain language; our biggest problems are America and the systems have snubbed their collective nose at the founding Fathers God.
It is easy to lose your heart and soul with God. An attitude of “We don’t need You!” has invaded court decisions of the 50s-70s, entertainment and books became loosed from any restraint, the education system of higher education began a program of teaching the Humanist Manifesto philosophy of Godlessness. These are just a few of the examples of what brought on the "We don't need You" attitude"..
Is it possible that God is permitting the U.S. to die a slow extremely painful death? Can America be saved as a nation? Of course it can. There are still great people here who love the country and want to see it great again.
Spiritual food for thought: "A person should be more concerned with spiritual than with material matters, but another person's material welfare is his own spiritual concern." Rabbi Yisrael Salanter, (lived 1810-1883)
What is wrong in America is a very complex issue. I know that America has lost its heart and soul to materialism. One only has to watch cable TV to discern this. There is nothing wrong with material items. It is when we elevate anything to an idol status above our allegiance of the Founding Father's God that we falter and fail. Read on.
The Lone Cross
How The Spiritual World Affects our Material World
While many Christians live in a lethargic state of inactivity today we are in the midst of an unseen spiritual war more real than our reality. This spiritual war rages between the dark forces of evil and the Godly forces of light (see Ephesians 6.12).
This war has been going on forever. It has been heating up for tor the last 80 years or so. The battle I believe to be occurring in the season of the end of God’s grace towards sinners. What a frightening thought for sinners of the world.
What are our biggest problems that emanate from the Spiritual world into our reality:
1. Racism - This is bad no matter how you dress it up. God made all the beautiful colors and furthermore He will take from all kindred and tribes to be set apart as His own. Racism extends both ways between races and is evil no matter how it occurs.
2. Violence - Assaults, murders, rapes, and drugs are topics which any Godly country should not be facing. But our nation is fed by a media system that glorifies all things evil and makes it look like in the end that no one gets hurt. They do.
3. Taxation - Do you realize we pay taxes at the gas pump, the grocery store, the pharmacy, on our car and tag, for our homes and land, and for every dollar you make working and when you buy anything else. We are taxed every way come Sunday. And taxes hit hardest on the poor, especially when it comes to income tax.
4. Our Economy - This is hard for everyone. Prices are High, Wages are not. The gap between the haves and have-nots is wider today than ever before. The Economy is not going to get better. It is fueled by profit at all costs including those they sell to and their own employees.
Globalist and the so-called some secular humanists have an arch enemy in many mobile born again Christians doing the will of God. The dark forces are at work in the background and have an ally in every globalist and secular humanist who is marshaling liberal (sic) forces trying all they can to rid the United States of our Judeo-Christian roots.
Liberal defined includes words like open-mindedness, open-handed, and lacking no restraint in doing the right thing. What you find with some of the liberals in America today they are neither open-minded or generous towards those that oppose them.
As a group, they are in fact closed minded and downright disagreeable towards those who oppose their views. The ills of our country are many. It seems we have killed our financial security by the use of abortion as birth control with over 56,000,000 of future taxpayers. Think about it. If one takes as few as 70 percent of these aborted contributing to the Social Security System since 1972 our nation would have a massive surplus instead of a massive deficit.
Coincidentally Planned Parenthood has named Hillary Clinton as the abortion queen of the century. We have in place an education systems that deny God and teach evolution as the beginning of the species while the evidences overwhelmingly suggests this could not have occurred by mere chance as the Darwinists story goes.
If evolution were the beginning of the species and the earth were millions of years old were true we would have new species popping up in the marshes of America and the world every day. American moral relativity acceptance of man’s ways over of God’s Way is at an all-time high.
While the divorce rate has dipped slightly in the last ten years the acceptance rate of divorce being morally right is at an all-time high. For a practicing Christian, man’s moral acceptability which clashes with God’s ways has an obligation to recognize and reject outright man's ways. (Judges 21.25, 17.6, Proverbs 21.2)
The Hall of Shame
The Hall of Shame
There are denominations and churches within America which teach everything and anything except the real Gospel that Jesus Christ died on a wooden cross He created. He then was buried for three full days in the ground to rise very early on a Sunday morning nearly two thousand years past.
(He was buried Wednesday on one of three Sabbaths that holiday week.) Jesus resurrected for the sins of the world, and the Christians hope for the future without which Paul states all is for naught. (re. 1 Corinthians 15)
The lack of preaching the truth of the Gospel above more often is one part of the puzzle in the lack of immediacy of the average believer.The denial of many countries, including the United States and the United Nations, that God granted Israel the land “forever” is another problem in governments and even churches around the world.
The land grant was restated numerous times and expanded by God the Father. It is evident America has denied and disobeyed God at every turn by calling evil good and good evil. (Isaiah 5.20)
The Bible says “woe to those” who practice doing evil. The media regularly glorifies the unholy. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is thankfully still preached and people still are saved as we probably near the end of the season of God's Grace. This is probably delayed as God is still showing mercy for those still coming to Him.
It's not too late if our nation repents. After repentance, God will help the U.S. begin the reversal of the massive rift in the America fabric caused by unseen dark spiritual forces using willing and unsuspecting peoples. The Spiritual world is more real than the virtual reality we live within.
The Word of God attacked from all sides in America’s age of skepticism, moral revisionism, and deceit at all levels of government, education, and religion. The doubt of the Bible exists even within the walls of the church. God is still in control, and a real Christian may be called on to sacrifice as other believers in the Hall of Faith have done in the past. (re. Hebrews 11)
However, strengthen your resolve and your faith for whatever the future holds. I believe we can all agree we are nothing but dust without the Creator. The Lord Jesus Christ used the Apostle Paul to write the doctrine of Christ and His body of believers, the Church in the Romans letter. I leave you with this - study it. God's blessings, Gary.
What do I think?
The world is more complex than ever before and data is worth more than the individual persons depicted within the data. But the Gospel of Jesus Christ is one-on-one like it always has been. The woman who touched his hem, the beggar by the Sheep Gate and the pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, the woman at the well, etc. He loves each individual and wants to save them from their sin so they can spend eternity in paradise. He will come if you call Him. He will save if you ask Him. Break down the barrier between you and He by simply asking. Eternity awaits either way.
Let me ask you a favor. Please leave me and others who write feedback on their writing. It is the least you can do. Thank you and God's blessings to you and your family.
