America: At a Moral Crossroad
We have a major moral issue brewing in America today. The issue is that the vast majority of people considered ‘leaders’ (i.e. political, social, educational and even religious leaders) in America have strayed a long way from the moral, personal responsibility teachings of the One true God of the Bible and have replaced the wisdom of God with the foolishness of man’s wisdom. The Founding Fathers who established this amazing country did not rely on their secular wisdom to establish America’s initial rules and laws. They were on their knees daily seeking the very face of their Creator God asking Him for His wisdom as they tried to establish this country.
Psalm 113:4 —-For the Lord is high above the nations;
His glory is far greater than the heavens.
Now this once great country has never been perfect. The wise people who worked night and day for years to initially establish this country’s rules and guidelines were imperfect sinners. And it was this personal understanding of their lack of inner imperfection and partial darkness that drove the Founding Fathers to understand that this nation could not be properly established (and maintained) if it was not grounded with biblically based moral laws. I am not going to list the hundreds of moral quotes and biblical convictions that these people had. However, I will list a few in order to help the ignorant. (I know a lot of you government educated people were deceived by anti-God, anti-American teachers who never taught you the truth about the biblical founding of this country.) I would encourage any of the rest of you anti-God, anti-American liberals who have more brains than a French fry to do a little research and see that our Founding Fathers clearly saw the absolute necessity of running their newly established government on biblical principles.
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 of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time 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 nonbiblical ‘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 the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”
—The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.
As I write this America is at a moral crossroad. Even though there is a group of genuine 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 publicly put the Divine One (who initially helped the Founding Fathers establish this country) back on His throne in America. Many in positions of leadership in America have kicked God out of the house. We have kicked Him out of the amoral and immoral, failing government school system. We have kicked the Lord out the same hallowed halls of our government’s political system where He was once publicly revered and honored.
Proverbs 12:2 —–The Lord approves of those who are good,
but He condemns those who plan wickedness.
If the fiscally conservative political leaders of this nation do not recognize that the All-Knowing, All-Powerful Creator God of this universe needs to have eminence in all we do in this nation even the plans of these political patriots will fail. Without the Lord being the head of this nation we will never be able to re-establish this once great country’s place of political and social superiority. So simply trying to re-establish economic responsibility in this country will not save America from falling! A balanced 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.
Proverbs 16:25 —-There is a path before each person that seems right,
but it ends in death.
We the people must stop listening to the promiscuous cries of a sinful people who desire nothing more than to live in their wanton pleasures when we try to establish biblically based moral laws and rules in this nation. 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” every time biblically moral people try to establish moral accountability in our government. (P.S. There is nothing in our constitution which demands that our government keep religion out of its everyday practices. From day one our country’s governmental buildings were adorned with Bible verses and moral quotes. From day one the political leaders of this land constantly quoted the Bible as they talked to their people. It is only in recent times that human secularists (people who deem themselves smarter and wiser than our Founding Fathers) 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 not belong in any aspects of our government.)
I would love to run these secular miscreants out of the country. I would love to silence their arrogant, deceiving amoral or immoral mouths. Unfortunately I cannot. This is the problem we run into when freedom and liberty have no moral basis. If these miscreants are American citizens they have to right to live 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 allow amoral, immoral and unprincipled people to live and rule in a country (that is supposed to be 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.
(Remember, the Lord told us that people who live only to satisfy their own desires love the darkness rather than the Light. Simply being religious does not make one right in God’s eyes!)
The God of the Bible does not play a part in the decision making process of an amoral or immoral secularists. Amoral or immoral people see no problem with murdering a baby that is still in its mother’s womb so they will push for legalization of just that. Amoral or immoral people have no sense of biblical morality so they will want to legalize self-satisfying things like: drugs, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, gay marriage, underage sex, polygamy, pornography etc. etc. And it will only be a matter of time before it these immoral behaviors become legal. After all, if God’s Word 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 humans are left to decide what feels right or wrong we will never have moral absolutes. (P.S. Again, Jesus said that people who reject God (i.e. God’s ways) and instead live for themselves seek the darkness rather than the Light.)
As the people in a nation become more and more immoral, it is plain to even see today in America, that our country’s laws will also become more and more immoral. Today in America, there are biblically immoral things being done that are now legal. These same immoral behaviors would have put a person in prison a hundred years ago! If we are not going to use the absolute moral truths of God’s Word as our gauge, then it will be soon be anything goes because people will soon say, “Who are we to judge the morals of another?” If we as a nation are not going to use the perfectly designed, engineered and authored Word of God to determine right from wrong then who or what will decide what is right from wrong? Again, without the hindsight and knowledge of God’s Word there is nothing to stop amoral and immoral people from passing laws which make the most wicked and vile things imaginable ‘legal.’
John Adams in a speech to the military in 1798 warned his fellow countrymen stating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Those of us who are truly concerned about this nation must see and agree to repair not only America’s economic issues but also her moral issues. America the nation needs to repent of her tolerance of sin. The God of the Bible tells us that not only are things like: lying, cheating, stealing and greed wrong, but so are socially acceptable things like: adultery, casual and flippant divorces, fornication, witchcraft, mind altering drug abuse and drunkenness, etc. If those who are trying to re-establish this nation politically are not willing to publically and privately re-establish this nation biblically, they will fail—no matter 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 not happen by accident. All true fundamental Christians believe that the hand of God played an incredible part in establishing America the Nation. And what was the reason God supernaturally intervened? The people trying to establish America were continually going 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!)
Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution
“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
—The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia, p. iii.
“The Bible … is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.”
—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 leads hedonism! If sinful people are given absolute freedom and liberty without moral absolutes anarchy and moral depravity will eventually lead to not only the individual destruction of people but also to national destruction of that country. We once again need to have people in America see that acts like adultery, fornicators, casual divorce and unwed pregnancies are shameful things. I am afraid that a large percentage of conservative, God-fearing Americans really do not want to go back to using the Bible as America’s moral compass. (I hope I am wrong!) I know many fiscally conservative patriotic people and politicians want to ‘right the economic ship’ in America. My concern (as a constitutional Christian), is do these same people also want to ‘right’ America’s moral ship using the absolute morals of God’s Word? Or are they going to continue to tolerate the foolish secular psycho-babble doctrines and philosophies of sinful humanists?
This country needs to stop ‘encouraging’ and/or promoting pornography as a freedom of speech. It is destroying the moral fiber of our children! How spiritually stupid and spiritually blind have ‘we the people’ become when we ‘see’ pornography as an American freedom or as a right to free speech? True patriotic Americans needs to shout from the streets that liberty and freedom are demoralizing and destructive in a society where the moral absolutes of God’s Word are not only ignored but ‘legally’ stifled! Patriotic Americans need to re-establish the idea that it is no longer going to be socially acceptable to use illegal or mind-altering drugs (which would include casually using illegal drugs for ‘medical’ reasons) and prescription drugs as tools of pleasure. In the Bible the Lord uses words like witchcraft, sorcery and drug usage synonymously. America has become a society of dope-heads. There are very few families in America these days that have not seen the devastating effects of mind altering illegal or legal drugs.
More Americans need to understand the absolute absurdity in pushing God out of our country. Who would have ever thought that there would be a day in America when God would be pushed out of our country’s government arena? Do these anti-religious idiots really comprehend how stupid they look in the eyes of God? These anti-Bible Americans think that things like the Bible and God are a joke or fairy-tale. These secular fools actually believe they are smarter than the One who created them!
Jesus Himself asked, “Why do you call Me Lord and not do as I say?”
We have a lot of people in America who go to some type of church/religious service without any desire to worship the God of the Bible. We have church/religious people ‘worshiping’ (in one form or another) everything animals, trees and even angels. The Mythical ‘Mother Nature’ or ‘Mother Earth’ has replaced the one True Creator God of the universe. And yet we wonder why America is failing. The God of the Bible will not help those who chose to worship (false) pagan gods or secular ways. Our God is a jealous God. And He has the right to be. After all, He is the One who created all this. God demands that we serve Him or else there is a consequence! God will never bless a nation (or a people) when they reject Him for the ways of mythical or secular philosophies.
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 great Christian nations which went secular—into moral and economic decay! The Bible says that the nation which fears God will prosper in all that it does. God promises to honor those societies or nations that honor His moral code. On the other hand, the same Bible says that the Lord laughs at those societies and/or nations which fall to ruin because they devised ways that were not God’s ways. The Bible says that God is not mocked. Whatever a person/society/nation sows it what it will reap.
Look at the moral mess we have in America today! The sacred God-given act of marriage between one man and one woman is no longer considered sacred but an option. America has become a society where a large percentage of Americans see nothing wrong with ripping a living baby out of its mother’s womb and throwing it in the garbage like a piece of rotten meat. This one, vile, disgusting legalized baby killing practice gives God enough reason to wipe America off the map! It used to be in this nation that any woman who was willing to have sex with whatever came along was called a whore or prostitute. Today, ‘sleeping around’ is not only acceptable is it promoted, pushed and glorified! We have over fifty types of sexually transmitted diseases being passed around these days. Immoral behaviors that were for many years hidden in the dark closets (by those who practiced them) are now not only tolerated they are publically encouraged in the name of freedom and liberty! These behaviors are a result of amoral and immoral freedoms and liberties in a country that once used God’s Word as its moral compass!
Thomas Jefferson 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 for chaplains in Congress and in the armed services, but he also signed the Articles of War, April 10, 1806, in which he:
“Earnestly recommended to all officers and soldiers, diligently to attend divine services.”
The bottom line is that if America the Nation continues to push the absolute morals of the one true God of the Bible out of its everyday governmental and everyday personal life practices, the Lord will leave us to our own demise.
Psalm 33:12 — Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…..
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 wise and intelligent human beings worked night and day for years to establish these amazing documents. However, these wonderfully crafted humanistic documents do not come close to the unfathomable depth of the writings of the Bible. And from what our Founding Fathers have clearly said, neither of these documents will survive if they are not controlled by the laws of God’s Word. Man, even at the highest secular levels of intelligence do not come close to the wisdom of God.
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence said
“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! 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 Paradise would this region be.”
—Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.
So again, freedom and liberty are wonderful blessings in any nation–when they are used in morally righteous ways. When people begin to use their freedoms and liberties to do whatever feels good or seems right in their own eyes (like same sex marriage) we will fall as a nation. And when ‘we the people’ begin to use our freedoms and liberties to sell, make or do whatever helps us to prosper financially (like legalized pornography) it will not be long before wickedness, corruption and debauchery will prevail in every part of that nation. Darkness and light cannot exist together. The Lord of the Bible tells us in Scriptures that because all humans are born sinful, with need the Lord’s guidance and wisdom in all that we do. When ‘we the people’ chose to walk away from the guidance and wisdom of the one who Created us–no matter how sincere we are and no matter how strong our convictions are about what we believe to be right and wrong we will walk in darkness. Americans, we need to walk back towards the Light! The ways of the All-Knowing, All-powerful Creator God of the universe are our only hope of survival.
Brilliant article here. Hopefully liberals will read this and reconsider their secular ways.
1) America is not a Christian nation. Fact. For it to be a Christian nation, Christianity would be a State Religion, and it would be illegal to have other faiths. You know, like in most dictatorial nations. It is irrelevant what the faith of the founding fathers was (as if there was a chance of them having been anything but Christian, being Puritans from Britain who thought it was getting “too wild” over there, what with women beginning to show ankle skin! *gasp*
2) There is not one set list of morals. Each person has their own morality. You find homosexuality offensive as a Conservative. You think it should be stopped. I have a problem with denying love between any two people. I think anyone getting in the way of people’s live should be stopped. Neither of us has the authority to usurpthe others’ morals. This is why on some matters, we will never agree under any circumstances. Telling me homosexuality is immoral (I am heterosexual, for the record) is like telling me a blonde woman and man getting married is immoral. Same exact logic, based on my view of the world. You see how you’d have a problem if your wife/husband and yourself were blondes, and me and a few million friends were decrying blonde marriage as an affront to a higher power and repulsive, and pushing to end it.
3) I am not an atheist, but I do not believe in the evil and spiteful God of the Christian bible. Still, the zealousness within this post makes me feel the need to counter with this intellectual information site. It’s not perfect, but it is overall an excellent exposure to undo brainwashing and enlighten oneself.
Wisdom… ever consider going by the name “Idiot” ? Because that is what your gobbledegook is. Idiotic.
America is overwhelmingly Christian. Making us a christian nation. If we weren’t, then explain to me, idiot, why the senate and house both have chaplains. Tell me why ‘In God We Trust” is on our currency. Tell me why “One nation, under God” in in the pledge of allegiance. Tell me why the majority of our founding fathers were indeed practicing religious men. Tell me why moses and the 10 commandments are chiseled in stone on the supreme court? Tell me why our federal lands, (national cemetery’s you idiot) are lined with an overwhelming majority of white crosses marking the graves of brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice, so that idiotslike you could spit on their sacrifice.
It seems you hate christians who oppose homosexuality. Yet idiots like you embrace an entire muslim culture that executes them. IDIOT.
I don’t appreciate the email you sent. In fact, why does CDN post my email address? (CDN?????????)
If you want to discuss YOUR article… do it here, not in a personal email. So I’m copying your email here so we can discuss it here:
R Kilps wrote: “It isn’t just the liberals who need to realize this–it is all Americans! The Lord Jesus Christ died for ALL humans because ALL humans are born with the ability to do tremendously wicked things. From my conservative viewpoint I say that conservatives are more accountable for their morality than liberals because most conservatives already have serious moral (Bible based) convictions–where as liberals have a hard time understanding the obvious differences between WHAT REALLY is right and and what really is wrong in almost any scenario.
JUST being a die-hard politically conservative in all that you do will not ‘save’ this country from financial ruin. Economic morals and spiritual morals go hand in glove. One without the other will NOT work. Just look at the economic and spiritual mess in Europe! And all their anti-God (of the Bible) socialistic economic philosophies are being reincarnated in America’s way of live through the person of Barack Obama.
Kilps, Personally, I don’t care for religions. None are symbols of human purity. While you might think highly of yours, its not. How many millions of native americans were exterminated under our forefathers misguided notion of manifest destiny? All religions have their dark little closets of perpetrating untold evils on mankind. In many cases, entire causes are hidden behind religion in order to advance an agenda.
Religion made conquering America “feel good” and “righteous.” One example of many…. Manifest destiny awarded 23 recipients the medal of honor for massacring 300 unarmed native americans at Wounded Knee. Ethnic cleansing at its finest hour. Can you explain that glorious little piece of history?
Look at religion today. It’s muslims against christians. And both sides are marching toward ultimate nuclear conflict. Because both sides are idiots. They both follow ancient scripts they believe are “holy” and God’s instruction manual on how to kill your enemies. So, with their brainwashed masses (humans can be very weak minded and so gullible… just ask the 900 who drank the koolaid at Jonestown… wait… they all committed suicide) they march the world to the mother of all battles. And for what?
You might be wondering why my original comment was so nice, urging liberals to abandon their secular ways. That is because morals are by-and-large a religious thing, which happen to serve large societies well. Societies need morals, just as we need laws.
One more observation before I hand it back to you. The Bible, the Koran, Book of Mormon, (Insert ALL religious text) are man-made scripts. It is the nut jobs following their own little scripts, to satisfy their religious masters, that is the cause of our involvement in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and possibly Iran. 9/11 was a religious attack… carried out by muslims who hate Jews and Americans. As a Diest, I look at all of this foolishness and am left to decide who I would rather be with in a foxhole. You see, I have no power to change a script that has brainwashed billions of people. But I have the power to pick allies. And that is why I support Christianity, Israel, and Conservatives, and I label them as “Good” in my perception of muslims being “Evil.”
Just because a person is not a Christian, it doesn’t make them a liberal. I am a Fiscal Conservative who believes in small government, low taxes, and less government intrusion. I believe in your right to practice your religion. I do not, however, think that you have the right to bash others who don’t have your religious or moral views. Some of you need to discover a little bit of tolerance for others. Jesus didn’t look down on people who were different, or try to bully them, so why do his followers do so?
