Why Do the Heathen Rage Against God?

America is in Danger of a Moral and Ethical Freefall.
America and the world are changing fast, like never before. Estimations show we double our secular knowledge every eight months. Is our vast amount of worldly wisdom bringing about a safer world? No.
Prove me wrong. Signs of the times in the world are everywhere. (Luke 17:26-30) Are these the last warning signs from a benevolent and loving God? Israel is in the land, and Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish nation.
Israel now surrounded by her enemies and opposed by almost every nation in the world. The Bible said it would. The Church, the body of Christ, the believers worldwide, is in the world with an estimated 2 billion followers.
There is a number when reached will cause swift action by God. (Romans 11.25) The problem with a majority of those that call themselves Christians there is not any discernible difference between themselves and the person who is not a Christian.
Why is this? Many have taken the step of accepting Jesus Christ as Savior. But have never grown beyond this point and accepted Jesus as Lord with Him on the seat of their heart.
2 Corinthians 3.17 and 18 states a Christian should be about the business of being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. You will recall what Martin Luther did with Habakkuk 2.4 in his 95' theses?
It started the Biblical Renaissance that has changed our world.
I used another Old Testament verse, Psalm 2.1-3, in my undergraduate thesis. Relativism misapplied is as evil today as then. When you read this article, perhaps you will do some additional study on your own and come to your conclusion.
Dr. Chuck Colson has said, "We are in an ethical mess today because we as a society have embraced relativism and abandoned truth and moral certitude. We have bought the modern myth that life is all about us and our desires. We’ve lost the restraints of conscience and have abandoned the understanding of right and wrong that has been the foundation of Western ethics."
America and the Middle East have much in common in this regard. The majority of populations in both have perhaps unknowingly turned their back on the knowledge of the true God. That is quite a claim about regions that have so much religion.
Religion misapplied is man's attempt to reach God Jesus detested the hypocrisy of religion in His short time here. So should we—the Word of God pleas for one to believe by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Then make Him Lord of their lives.
Creation and the much of the sciences in the world today scream for a Creator. I believe we are blind to the truth. Not all of the sciences are. Several leading scientists in many fields practice as Christians.
Our body created by God is a masterpiece of complexity. We w by spontaneous evolution. Our cells loaded with information about each cell nearby, which is the final nail in evolution?
With this in mind, let us explore turning one's life back to God. Bible University, now under construction after another hacking by evil, nurtures tomorrow's preachers, evangelists, educators, and missionaries.
I challenge you to investigate and have fun exploring the infinite Word of God. A lifetime is too short to scratch even the surface of this incredible document called the Bible.

The Messiah Reigns
Psalm 2.1-3, America in a Nutshell
David asked, "Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us." Psalm 2:1-3
Our society has done just that. The so-called humanist who are the gods of relativity rage against everything that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob stands for. God laughs at their audacity. Soon He will be their Judge.
He creates out of nothing; by merely speaking things into existence. What can they do? Take millions of those who like sheep led over a cliff straight on their uninvestigated blindness to hell.
Even a casual reading of this verse will bring one to the point of stating it could depict America amid a moral and ethical free fall where everyone without Christ is "doing what is right in their own eyes." (Judges 21.25)
The Humanist Manifesto has accomplished much of what it set out to achieve. Never has there been more blatant immorality than today. Our breaking of the bonds of morality has led to the acceptance of sin as usual. It is not in the eyes of God. We are inviting judgment from the Almighty.
The U.S. Supreme Court has consistently ruled against the commonsense Bible since 1965 in original rulings, legislation by adjudication, designed not to offend those who do not believe.
The Supreme Court decisions removed the Word of God from secular education and the public forum, which has had a powerful downturn influence on moral behavior.
God takes these rulings personally. (Romans 1.15-32) One estimate says we have sacrificed 57 million souls by infanticide through abortion since the 1973 legalization in the United States. It is immoral to stand by when you know something is wrong and do nothing. Are We?
In many cases, it is also against the civil law to do so. Why were people not using birth control? Abortion is America's birth control. Why are the Christians of America not screaming for the overturning of Roe vs. Wade?
We have aborted our future in America to the God of convenience. A New York Times story lists the percentage of abortions due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother as less than 1 percent of total abortions.
It is also important to note that abortions due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother were never illegal before the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion on demand.
A note of good news: the number of abortions has dropped in America. The abortion rate is at the lowest point since 1973. Perhaps God has open the eyes of many to the atrocity this is? I sincerely hope so.
PC is the SWAT of Free Speech
Political Correctness Mocks the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Political correctness (PC), a significant objective of the Humanist Manifesto, is in place in all facets of our society, including in many churches worldwide. Accepted as standard; it is not. The Humanist Manifesto envisions a world without God.
Those that embrace their relativity detest the Word of God. Secular Humanism thumbs its nose at God and is well established in all facets of governmental, educational, industrialism, and, sadly, even many church branches in the United States.
FACT: There is a vast difference between Secular Humanism and a Real Humanist.
Jesus Christ is the example of authentic Godly Humanism. God takes the relativist skepticism personally.
God removed by the liberal courts of America from the classroom and the public forum and replaced by relativity for which we are paying dearly almost daily. Look around. COVID 19 is a warning.
Are you afraid to display your love and allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ? The Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Bible can never become mixed with any other religion. Jesus said,
“I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life; No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Jesus told this to Thomas who was not a doubter, any more than you and I.
The arts mock God and Jesus Christ as ancient myths and are funded by our tax dollars through the U.S. government.
Another primary goal of the Humanist Manifesto, our youth are taught under the guise of academic freedom to loose the bonds of their parent's religion and the error-filled Bible and embrace bad science instead.
Then we wonder why the youth of today have abandoned the Word of God and salvation through Jesus Christ. You mean you can believe in vain?
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hears my voice and open the door, I will come to him and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20)
I have a question about this verse that goes against how often used in churches. Why is Jesus Christ standing at the door and knocking to get into His Church? I have asked this same question online for the last ten years.
After all, He is the Chief Cornerstone. (see Ephesians 2.20)
The letter written to the Laodicean Churches also prophetically forward to the apostate Church of our day is why He is standing outside. Jesus should already be inside through the available Holy Spirit enlivening our dying hearts, souls, minds, and churches.
Both Paul and Peter preached the Gospel every time they spoke on behalf of the Word of God,
“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the Gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you were saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you – unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
That is the Gospel that Paul and Peter preached, and the Holy Ghost won thousands to Jesus Christ!
My Final Thoughts
Caution - Be ready to get ready!
Immanency as I am using it, or being ready for anything, is missing from the average Christian today. Be ready to get ready.
Do not wait. Study the Word of God. Do not say I do not know how, or even worse I do not care. If you need real help, contact me at the link above the article in my picture.
I have offered many times and not ONE person has ever emailed for help. I am here if you do. I am willing to help. I am currently almost 72 years old and not getting any younger. But I'm going to use what time I have let to write for the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is a small thing to do. I hope you enjoy the articles and I would enjoy hearing from you. Thank you and God's blessings, Gary

Our country and each individual need to pray and ask for forgiveness.
