America’s Moral Collapse And Descent Into Darkness

And it shall come to pass, if thou shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.  Deuteronomy 28:1-2

Now all these things happened to them as examples and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the age have come.  1 Corinthians 10: 11

The Apostle Paul here cautions the Corinthians against claiming a false security on past blessings on account of their gifts, knowledge and profession received through the grace of God, this also pertains to a nation, even if your motto be, “In God We Trust” feel that your high attainments and blessings of the past remove you from the judgment of God.

The Hebrews of old received rich blessings, God’s grace was showered down upon them time after time, yet in the end many fell in the wilderness to rise no more.

In the day in which we live it has become “politically incorrect” to invoke Biblical moral standards on others, political correctness is nothing less then a new form of brain washing and indoctrination of the masses.

Sadly but true we have the majority today as the Bible says, “every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes.” Deut. 12:8.  Today most simply follow the path of self-determination.  The same method Adam and Eve chose in the Garden of Eden and we all know only to well how that ended.

Biblical morality is based on God’s standards, not human experience and human reason.  God’s standards never move, they always remain the same.  We still have the North Star in the heavens to guide us, always there, fixed in one place and we also have been given God’s word which is to guide us in our lives here on earth.  The Bible is the instruction book for our lives, unfortunately most fail to read it.

The Bible never becomes outdated because human nature never changes, but for the grace of God.  Godly morality identifies righteous people, the greater the morality of its citizens the greater the morality and stature of a nation.

Today in America morality is in chaos, to many feel they may have a relationship with God on their own terms, a god created in a depraved mind who overlooks a sinful lifestyle, the word family is used to denote almost any kind of living arrangement. America if it is to stand needs the nuclear family.  Families are the building blocks of a nation and society.  If the family is destroyed the nation is doomed.

When God’s judgment falls on a nation, poor leadership comes into being.  For the leaders of this people cause them to error and those who are led by them are destroyed.  Isa. 9:16  I will give children to be their princes.  And babes shall rule over them.  Isa.3:4 Those who place their faith only in human leadership are doomed to experience the fate of past nations who fell under the judgment of God.

The child will be insolent toward the elder Isa. 3:5, When a society is in open revolt against God, anarchy rules, divisions occur, the mob reigns and society crumbles.

Those who stand for the truth of God’s word are labeled as hypocrites and backward righteous bigots, “clinging to Bibles and Guns”.  Where have you heard that before?

Yet we are told Christians are not to judge others, but to remain silent in the face of evil.  Those who live lives of wickedness seem to have grasped the Scripture, “judge not” and use it as a club to defend their sin.

The words judge not given in Matt. 7:1 refer to hypocritical judgments, it does not mean we are to close our eyes to wrong character when we see it.  The aforementioned scripture refers to a critical fault finding and unrighteous attitude in condemning others of the same things you are doing yourself.

There is such a thing as proper judgment.  Do you not know that the saints will judge the world?  And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters.  Do you not know that we shall judge angels?  (How much more things that pertain to this life?)

America is drenched in the blood of millions of the unborn.  Homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of God and homosexual marriage flies in the face of all God’s creation an abomination from Hell itself.

Most seem totally blind to all of this, just as it was inIsrael’s day before judgment fell on that nation:  They do not know nor understand; For he has shut their eyes, so that they cannot see, and their hearts, so that they cannot understand.  Grace refused is Grace withdrawn.

The Lord will give a rebellious people just what they want, they reject the truth and turn deaf ear, so God gives them silence.  When people choose to make a lie their refuge we see the results in Isa. 28:15 …for we have made lies our refuge, and under a falsehood we have hidden ourselves.

Judicial blindness always comes before judgment; theUnited Statesis not so big nor so great that it can escape the punishment of Almighty God.  God shows no partiality in judgment.

For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.  Deut. 10:17

While many in this nation claim to believe in the Bible as God’s Word yet for the most part religion today is truly a part time project patterned and adjusted to suit our convenience and desires, a bandaid to silence the conscience.

Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear would do well to heed the warnings of Zephaniah, “Seek righteousness, seek humility.  It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.  Zephaniah 2:3.

The military, terror and economic threats on the horizon will overcome America if there is no national repentance and a return to God and his standard of morality defined in the Scriptures.

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.  2 Chronicles 7:14
