America has problems. At the root of all that is coming apart is a rejection of spiritual values. I lay the blame mainly on the church. The church has refused to be the church. They have been busy being accepted by the pagan world and looking for ways to water down the message.
If America faces the kind of oppression and violence that I see coming it will not be because we did not get involved in politics. It will because we have rejected the demands of a holy God. It will be because of millions of abortions. It will be because pornography has gone mainstream. It will be because we now accept all the different versions of homosexual behavior and will soon be accepting even more. It will be because pedophilia is coming close to being accepted.
These are spiritual issues and there are spiritual solutions. We could have revival. In the Bible you have the example of Nineveh responding to Jonah. God would have spared Sodom if only a few righteous could be found. The preaching of John Wesley kept England from disintegrating like the French did. Societies can be changed but they won’t be changed until individuals are changed.
Get involved politically. Vote. Speak up. But most important humble yourself before the God of the universe and repent. The principle was presented to Israel,
(2Ch 7:14 KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.We are not Israel. We are not the chosen people, but God has blessed us and used us to be a blessing. The principle still applies if you are one of those who follows Jesus and lives a life of obedience.
It is not too late.
