The Nations of the Earth have Come and Gone, largely based on the personality and power of the Individual or Government at the helm. Dictators, Military Generals and Political Movements have propelled a number of people, groups and artificial assemblies into power….for a time.
They have achieved great things, but only as long as the Dictator or Powerful Entities lived and were able to control events.
Of course, there have been exceptions. None more obvious or significant than Israel and The United States of America. Israel rose to power on the heels of King David. A Warrior-King admitting his power and office being the direct result of The One True God of Heaven’s Appointment and Blessing.
A Warrior-King who set out to fulfill God’s Command that Israel rid the Land of those people-groups which rejected Him. Divine Justice…And Peace For The People of God. His son, Solomon took that nation to New Heights, both in the building of The Temple, in Jerusalem, and the expansion of wealth and power in the Region.
But in his worldly success, he forgot His God! Subsequent kings a) divided the kingdom, and b) destroyed it, due to their rejection of The One True God of Heaven!
The United States of America follows the same path, establishing her authority and purpose upon the principles found in The Holy Bible and granting both autonomy and responsibility to her people.
After a Great World Victory (WWII) she purposed to enjoy the ‘Fruits of Success,’ The enemies of Right and Good were vanquished. The world was at peace. The forces of Right and Good would keep it that way.
In the grips of this False Evaluation, The United States became morally weak and began a descent into chaos.
1. Forgetting from whence she came
2. Abandoning The True Source of her Greatness
3. Resorting to Personal Gratification and Riches
The U.S. has abandoned her Founding Principles, replacing them with humanistic and politically progressive policies. The word ‘progressive’ is derived from the idea of Progress. True progress, we judged, could only be achieved if-and-when we shed our religious belief in absolute moral principles and guidance by the unseen ‘Hand’ of God.
And Abandon It We Have!
– Darwinian Evolution replaced the Biblical Concept of Creation
– Truth was abandoned in favor of Relativism.
– Ethics was no longer viewed an objective reality
– Morality became what we wanted it to be
– ‘Family’ was replaced by Revolving Roommates
– Children were abandoned to Government Schools
– Churches no longer preached The Word of God
– Legal Decisions are now Opinions, based upon a Judge’s interpretation or precedent.
What we did not realize [although those who deliberately crafted our New Society DID] was that Without Religious Freedom, There Is No Political Freedom!
Politics Addresses Policy — Religion Addresses Morality. Policies are built upon Morality. A relative moral code results in policies which are ‘Fair’ to the individual or party in view….. but not always to the larger community.
Fairness Is Always The Enemy of Justice!
When ‘Right’ no longer means anything objectively correct, it doesn’t matter what decision is made. The only thing that matters is the narrow issue at hand. And what’s at stake is what’s “Fair” …In This Case.
These concepts are not as Clear-Cut as this evaluation implies. Partly due to the fact that we cannot see the larger picture. In this Larger Picture, they are EXACTLY Correct! Our progress has been hit-and-miss, with movement toward moral destruction, interspersed by moments of relief [Read ‘sanity’].
LOOK AT IT!
No Nation Survives High Taxes & Social Benefits Too!
No Nation Survives The Rule of Opinion!
No Nation Survives The Deliberate Devaluation of Her Currency!
No Nation Survives Financial Support of Her Enemies! [re: U.N.; Foreign Aid]
No Nation Abandons God And Survives!
No Nation Survives Giving Money To People Who Don’t Work! [In 2011 49.2.% received Gov’t aid] This is not helping people who cannot work. This is supporting people who will not work….either because they refuse or because they did not prepare themselves to work. At Issue is Faith, Morality, Family, Responsibility!
Our Social Security Program [for example] is based on what was viewed as legitimate insurance. It was created, however, to eliminate the vast majority of folks who paid into it. In 1935, the average age of a working male was 58 yrs. Benefits began at 65 yrs. Is this Moral or merely Expedient?
Today, Soc. Sec. benefits begin at age 62 and the average male [who reaches age 65] lives to be 84! In terms of Actuarials….This is Insanity! HOWEVER…In terms of The Policy of Social / Moral Destruction…. It makes perfect sense!
It is doubtful we will be able to identify any lawmaker or public servant who is deliberately seeking to destroy this country. However, by embracing a godless and immoral view of life and government, that is exactly what’s happening!!
