Commentary by: Gordon King
America is on a downfall, a downward spiral in terms of morals and values. The once cherished beliefs and patriotism which built this nation are now thought of as evil and demoralizing. “Political Correctness” is the term of the day. Acceptance and tolerance of everything imaginable is now being accepted as the new moral standard in America.
Rejection of this view-point labels you as an outsider, a trouble maker, and Un-American. We shall see in the near future, as we are now beginning to see, the intolerant views and attitudes towards such people. For example Christian Americans. If you are a Christian American and hold to your beliefs, then you shall be persecuted for your faith. You are labeled as a trouble maker, a rebel, and a danger to the government and society at large.
There is a danger in this other than the obvious, that Christians will be persecuted. The other danger is the judgment of America. America is quickly heading into the abyss. The depths of which we have never known. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? They did not escape God’s punishment upon them, neither shall we.
As a country founded on the principles of God Almighty, with God leading the pack, America has been a truly blessed nation. But, as time has gone by, as sin has increased, as our government has not only pushed God aside, but has pushed Him out of political and public life, we are setting ourselves up for disaster. It would have been better for us not to have placed our trust and faith in Him in the first place, then to have pushed Him away as we have done.
My question is: “Have we passed the point of no return?” Is God so angered with us that his judgment upon us is inevitable? My opinion is that we have not reached that point yet. There is still time to change. To accept God back into our government, and our society. To repent of our sins and beg God for His mercy and forgiveness upon us. This is the only way. We must accept our creator and trust in Him and Him alone. But our time is short. We are falling quickly with no end in sight.
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
We must all ask our Father in heaven to forgive us, repent of our sins and the sins of our nation, and accept Him as the one and only God of our lives and country. We must pray for our political leaders and countrymen and women who have pushed God out of their lives. We must pray for the softening of their hearts, for their enlightenment of the truth, and for their salvation through Jesus Christ. It is the only way my friends, the only way!
