I have noticed in the past couple of years that there seems to be more near death experiences that have been reported on, you know, people who were clinically dead then came back to life to tell their story. Some people reported meeting relatives that have passed years before, others said that they had met Jesus, one woman who said she met Jesus after she was crushed by rocks during her ride on the rapids somewhere out in the mid-west. Jesus told her he was going to send her back so she can comfort her family when her son dies at the age of nineteen, years later when her son died at the age of nineteen; she was there to comfort her family.
There was another story about a five year old who was having dreams and started painting pictures of Jesus, the thing is, her parents were atheists and never exposed their daughter to any religious pictures at all, they soon after became Christians. While another woman who left and came back said that the picture the little girl had painted was exactly the Jesus she had met when she had her experience of near death.
There are many more stories on record of people that left and came back to spread the word that Heaven and Jesus do exist. I started thinking, is this part of Gods plan? Is he trying to send us a warning, that he sees what is going on and we had better start turning back towards him?
There is no doubt that our society is on a downward spiral, a society that dismisses God but celebrates homosexuality, is a society on the way down, you cannot even mention God in schools, but you can teach homosexuality. A society that allows abortion in the name of women’s health and a woman’s right to choose. A woman has the right to choose to have her appendix taken out or her tonsils taken out, but she does not have the right to take a human life, just because that life is inside her.
A fourteen year old girl at school is not allowed to be given an aspirin, but if she wants a birth control pill she is given them freely, without even having to notify her parents. We have a society that encourages promiscuity, instead of teaching our children the benefit of abstinence, society tells them it is O.K. by giving out free birth control at school or teaching them how to put a condom on a cucumber.
Parental control over their kids is being eroded in this country, we have to be careful what we teach them and God forbid we should discipline them, society does not allow that. However, as soon as a kid does something wrong, society is the first to come out and say, “What kind of parents do they have?”
All you have to do is pick up the newspaper on a daily basis, it is plain to see the erosion of values and morality in this country, this country was founded on Judeo-Christian principals. Dwight Eisenhower said, “all men are endowed by their Creator.” In other words, our form of government has no sense unless it is founded in a deeply felt religious faith, and I don’t care what it is. With us of course it is the Judeo-Christian concept, but it must be a religion with all men created equal.
“ Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams is a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our second President.
Church attendance has gone down over the years, people seem to be moving away from God as time goes by, it seems to me that the more we move away from God, the more screwed up our society seems to get. I was born and raised a Roman-Catholic, but believe me, I am by no means a holy roller, I believe in keeping my religion to myself. But I will say this, the more we move away from God, the more he will move away from us, and I would hate to see God abandon us, especially now when he is so desperately needed, because our society is in free fall.
