AMERICA: AT A MORAL CROSSROADS
We have a major moral issue brewing in America today. The issue is thatthe vast majority of people considered ‘leaders’ (i.e. political, social,educational and even religious leaders) in America have strayed a longway from the moral teachings of the One true God of the Bible and havereplaced the wisdom of God with the foolishness of man’s wisdom. TheFounding Fathers who established this amazing country did not relysolely on their wisdom to establish America’s rules and laws. They wereon their knees daily seeking the very face of God as they sought His wisdom as they triedto establish this country.
Now this once great country has never been perfect. The people who worked night and dayfor years to establish this country’s rules and guidelines were imperfect sinners. However,these people did not establish this country without biblically based moral convictions.I am not going to list the hundreds of moral quotes and biblical convictions that thesepeople had. However, I will list a few in order to help the ignorant. (I know a lot of yougovernment educated people were deceived by anti-God, anti-American teachers whonever taught you the truth about the biblical founding of this country.) I would encourageany of the rest of you anti-God, anti-American liberals who have more brains than aFrench fry to do a little research and see that our Founding Fathers clearly saw the absolutenecessity of running their newly established government on biblical principles.
John Adams 2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history ofAmerica. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generationsas the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Dayof Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to besolemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells,bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from thistime forward forever.”
–Adams wrote this in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776.
The brilliant men who founded this nation clearly saw that if this Christian nation (i.e. her people) strayed from the absolute moral truths of the Bible (has it has today) and instead tries to establish its own unbiblical ‘do whatever feels good or whatever the people want’morals, it would not be long before the entire American governmental system would fail!
1st U.S. President George Washington
“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers,we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To thedistinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the moredistinguished character of Christian.”
–The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.
America is at a moral crossroads. Even though there is a group of genuinely political patriots trying to resolve this nation’s economic problems it will not last without also re-establishing America’s moral compass. The leaders in this nation must once again publically put the Divine One (who initially helped establish this country) back on His throne in America.
Without the Lord being the Head of this nation we will never beable to re-establish this once great country’s place of political and social superiority. Simply trying to re-establish economic morals in this country will not accomplish that! Abalanced and fiscally responsible budget is great, but it will never succeed if we do not also re-establish this nation’s social and spiritual heritage.
As a nation, we must stoplistening to the promiscuous cries of a sinful people (who desire nothing more than to livein their wanton pleasures) when we try to establish biblically moral laws and rules in thisnation. If this nation is going to survive, American loving patriots needs to publicly rebuke the historically ignorant idiots who cry out, “Separation of church and state” everytime moral people try to establish moral accountability in our government. (P.S. There isnothing in our constitution which demands that our government keep religion out of itseveryday practices.
From day one our country’s governmental buildings were adornedwith Bible verses and moral quotes. The political leaders of this land constantly quoted the Bible as they talked to their people. It is only in recent times thathuman secularists (people who deem themselves smarter and wiser than our FoundingFathers) have tried to push God out of our government. It is only in recent times that anti-God atheists have tried to mislead people into believing that the Lord of the Bible does notbelong in any aspects of our government. I would love to run these secular miscreants outof the country. I would love to silence their arrogant, deceiving mouths. Unfortunately I cannot.
This is the problem: If these miscreants are American citizens they have to right tolive here; they have the right to freedom of speech; have the right to their own opinions;they even have the right to thrust their views on others. And as a result when we allowamoral, immoral and unprincipled people to live and rule in a country (that is supposed tobe running on God’s moral absolutes) they will always end up doing what is right (i.e. self-
pleasing and self-satisfying) in their own eyes. The God of the Bible does not play a partin the decision making process for amoral or immoral secularists. If a majority of them want to kill a baby in a mother’s womb they will push for legalization of it. If a majority ofthese types of people want to legalize drugs, homosexuality, gay marriage, underage sex,polygamy, etc. etc. it will only be a matter of time before it happens. After all, if God’sWord is not going to be used as the litmus test for what is moral what will be used? There is nothing else to use but the feelings and opinions of a sinful people. And if we human sare left to decide what feels right or wrong we will never have moral absolutes. (P.S. Jesus said that people (left to themselves) like the darkness rather than the Light.) As the peoplein a nation become more and more immoral, it will not be long before that country’s lawsbecome more and more immoral. If we are not going to use the absolute moral truths ofGod’s Word as our gauge, then it will be soon be anything goes because who are wehumans to judge the morals of another? If we as a nation are not going to use perfectly thedesigned and authored Word of God to determine right from wrong then who or what willdecide what is right from wrong? Again, without the hindsight and knowledge of God’sWord there is nothing to stop amoral and immoral people from passing laws which makethe most wicked and vile things imaginable ‘legal.’
John Adams in a speech to the military in 1798 warned his fellow countrymenstating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending withhuman passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was madeonly for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government ofany other.”
Those of us who are truly concerned about this nation must see and agree to repair notonly America’s economic issues but also her moral issues. America the nation needsto repent of her tolerance of sin. The God of the Bible tells us that not only are thingslike: lying, cheating, stealing and greed wrong, but so are socially acceptable things like:adultery, casual and flippant divorces, fornication, witchcraft, mind altering drug abuseand drunkenness, etc. If those who are trying to re-establish this nation politically are notwilling to publically and privately re-establish this nation biblically, they will fail—nomatter how good or sincere their intentions.
“I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”
–The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.
As I said before, this nation was not established out of a vacuum. This nation did nothappen by accident. All true fundamental Christians believe the hand of God playedan incredible part in establishing America the Nation. And what was the reason God supernaturally intervened? The people trying to establish America were continuallygoing to God in prayer as they sought His wisdom in establishing America’s rules and
regulations. (Again, I am not going to debate the idea of how biblical and God-searching America’s Founding Fathers were. It is a no-brainer historical fact. Research it yourself or keep your mouth shut!)
Patrick Henry Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution
“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation wasfounded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospelof Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been affordedasylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
“The Bible … is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.”
–The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia, p. iii.
–Sketches of the Life and Character of Patrick Henry, p. 402.
A Bible based godly peer pressure needs to be re-established once again in America.People need to understand the freedom and liberty without biblical morality leadshedonism! If sinful people are given absolute freedom and liberty without moral absolutesanarchy and moral depravity will eventually lead to not only the individual destruction ofpeople but also to national destruction of that country. We once again need to have peoplein America see that acts like adultery, fornicators, casual divorce and unwed pregnanciesare shameful things. I am afraid that a large percentage of conservative, God-fearingAmericans really do not want to go back to using the Bible as America’s moral compass.(I hope I am wrong!) I know conservative patriotic people and politicians who wantto ‘right the economic ship’ in America. My concern (as a constitutional Christian), is dothese same people also want to ‘right’ America’s moral ship using the absolute morals ofGod’s Word or are they going to continue to tolerate the foolish psycho-babble doctrinesand philosophies of sinful humanists?
This country needs to stop ‘encouraging’ and/or promoting pornography as a freedomof speech. It is destroying the moral fiber of our children! How stupid have a peoplebecome when they ‘see’ pornography as an American freedom or right to free speech?True patriotic Americans needs to shout from the streets that liberty and freedom aredemoralizing and destructive in a society where the moral absolutes of God’s Word arenot only ignored but ‘legally’ stifled! Patriotic Americans need to re-establish the idea thatit is no longer going to be socially acceptable to use illegal or mind-altering drugs (whichwould include casually using illegal drugs for ‘medical’ reasons) and prescription drugs astools of pleasure. In the Bible the Lord uses words like witchcraft, sorcery and drug usagesynonymously. America has become a society of dope-heads. There are very few familiesin America these days that have not seen the devastating effects of mind altering illegal orlegal drugs.
More Americans need to understand the absolute absurdity in pushing God out of ourcountry. Who would have ever thought that there would be a day in America when Godwould be pushed out of our country’s government arena? Do these anti-religious idiotsreally comprehend how stupid they look in the eyes of God? These anti-Bible Americansthink that things like the Bible and God are a joke or fairy-tale. These secular foolsactually believe they are smarter than the One who created them!
Why do you call Me Lord and not do as I say?
American loving citizens need to see that America is in a fight for her very survival!This once God-loving, Bible-preaching country is going the way of other once greatChristian nations which went secular—into moral and economic decay! The Bible saysthat the nation which fears God will prosper in all that it does. God promises to honorthose societies or nations that honor His moral code. On the other hand, the same Biblesays that the Lord laughs at those societies and/or nations which fall to ruin because theydevised ways that were not God’s ways. The Bible says that God is not mocked. Whatevera person/society/nation sows it what it will reap. Well look at the moral mess we havein America today! The sacred God-given sacrament of marriage is no longer consideredsacred but an option. We have over fifty types of sexually transmitted diseases beingpassed around these days. These are a result of immoral freedoms and liberties! Americahas become a society where a large percentage of Americans see nothing wrong withripping a living baby out of its mother’s womb and throwing it in the garbage like a pieceof rotten meat. This one, vile, disgusting legalized baby killing practice gives God enoughreason to wipe America off the map!
The bottom line is that if America the Nation continues to push the One true God ofthe Bible out of its everyday governmental practices God will leave us to our owndemise. And it will not be long before this country becomes as decadent as Sodom andGomorrah—just as Jesus said.
“The only foundation for useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion.”
As President, Thomas Jefferson not only signed bills which appropriated financial support forchaplains in Congress and in the armed services, but he also signed the Articles of War, April10, 1806, in which he:
“Earnestly recommended to all officers and soldiers, diligently to attend divineservices.”
Our American constitution and our Bill of Rights are amazing documents. However,they do not even come close to the incredibly perfect Word of God! A lot of very wiseand intelligent human beings worked night and day for years to establish these amazingdocuments. However, these wonderfully crafted humanistic documents do not come closeto the unfathomable depth of the writings of the Bible. Man, even at the highest secularlevels of intelligence do not come close to the wisdom of God.
John Adams2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their onlylaw Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts thereexhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality,and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety,love, and reverence toward Almighty God … What a Utopia, what a Paradisewould this region be.”
–Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.
So again, freedom and liberty are wonderful gifts from God—when we are not using thosefreedoms and liberties to do whatever we like instead of what God wants.
