You don’t have to be a historian to recognize the United States of America aren’t so united. Sure, negative news overshadows any decent, encouraging or trace of optimism out there. Nonetheless, even if a positive news network did exist, remaining realistic in this time of hate crimes, moral decay and political hypocrisy would be difficult. In my mind, there’s only one thing left to ask, “has God left America?”
Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD and served the Baals, Judges 2:11.
If the Supreme Court is a foreshadowing of the future, its only a matter of time before the Lord removes his blessing. In recent days, Oklahoma courts have ruled the 10 Commandments monument outside the state capitol must be removed. While atheists, progressives and revisionist historians will say, “what’s the big deal,” the founding fathers are shaking in their graves at the removal of one of the last beacons of truth in America. Though history goes in cycles, when you eliminate concrete absolutes, leaders of this country are opening the doors to a chaotic society.
They forsook the LORD, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the LORD‘s anger, Judges 2:12.
No one likes to be told what to do, except for the government who is regulating what you eat, say and so on. In the past, God allowed Israel to be taken captive, living in exile for hundreds of years. Despite these tangible lessons, individuals still strayed from the Lord, only turning back during the tough times. The events of 9/11 did the trick for a little while, but now the hearts of many have turned cold. Has God left America completely, probably not. Yet, if the cultural trends continue, there won’t be any room left for freedom of speech, religion or worship.
