What the heck is going on? This country has surely changed in just a few decades. I sense we have become sin sick because for too long Christians have been the “silent” majority. It is time we become re-engaged in our society. Let us be diligent to bring the light of the Lord to every conversation, every family and community endeavor, every behavior, thought, word and deed.
While we have been asleep at the wheel, divorce has become as common in Christian marriages as in marriages in general; abortion clinics proliferate; sexual activities expressly forbidden by our wise God are not only being accepted but are being incorporated into entertainment and communication venues; pornography has become a 1st Amendment right (what??). Filthy, coarse language has infiltrated our schools and families; nudity is almost unrestrained; drug and alcohol abuse has entered into our elementary schools; teenage pregnancies and teen suicides inundate the youth population. Oh yeah, that’s real progress America!
Hmm-let me ponder a moment…all of that is happening while the 10 Commandments are being removed from public display, prayer and Bible are not allowed at the beginning of the school day anymore, and petitions to remove any mention of God from the Pledge of Allegiance, our money or in our public statements are gaining momentum. I don’t think you have to be a scientist or a theologian to see the connection!
Continue to pray, people. But faith without works is dead. Live the right life of the Lord in all you do. Call, email and write your local, state and federal congressional members and voice your opinion…Lord knows the secular humanists, et al, have been busy doing so with theirs! Those who have the fortitude should run for public office; others can support those with higher moral principles…not just those with the programs that are going to give you more freebies. Our lives are full and busy to the max right now, I know, but seek God with all your heart as to what you may do to stem the tide that is overtaking our country little by little. God has a plan…let’s make sure we are right smack in the middle of it. Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
