Day after day after day – the constant lies, the never ending corruption of the highest offices in the country has taken a toll on me. And I blame my fellow citizens for it. Therefore I must also blame myself.
We have allowed this to happen. Our sense of outrage is muted, civilized. What would have had us raging in the streets with torches and lengths of rope now only produces emails and texts. Why are there no marches on Washington?
So many Americans have allowed their moral compass to become rusty from lack of use. America’s condition brings to mind Isaiah 53:6 -
“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
But God in His wisdom is allowing this to happen. It has happened throughout history to every civilization and we are no different. Just a bit more short-lived than the Romans or the British Empire.
We were warned by John Adams that, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
A limited government will only be successful when the people it governs limits their own actions. When we fail to internalize moral laws, these laws must be imposed from without. Since man is the source of these imposed laws, they are imposed by imperfect men; therefore they can and must reflect the hearts of men. And scripture warns us that the hearts of mankind are desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9). We are seeing this in action as we have for so many years. It’s just more out in the open. As attacks on Christ-based belief systems increase, so evil increases. This is what we are experiencing with sexual perversion, Satanism, etc.
Nothing to see here people. It’s just business as usual for mankind.
Let’s move on.
