A Moral Dilemma



          The problem with our Christian nation is that it’s not very Christian anymore.  You are not a Christian simply because you say that you are. Our government says that 78.5% of our population professes to be some form of Christian[1].  If you have not declared that Jesus is Lord and established a personal relationship with Him, you are not a Christian. Many of our founding fathers thought that a relationship with the Christ should be a prerequisite to holding office in this country.  Today, in order to be elected, you have to be in fear of the church and state separators.   If you also don’t believe in the devil and hell, you need to get your head around the basis of your unbelief.  The reason that the devil is one step ahead of you is because he can operate in the shadows.  “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”[2] “If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, you don’t stand a chance against the devil.”[3] There are only two forces at work in the world.  They are the forces of good and evil.  They each acknowledge the existence of the other.  How do you expect to survive if you deny the existence of that which surrounds you?  The devil is a liar, he comes to steal, kill and destroy.  “Any good that you do will not get you into Heaven, and any bad that you do won’t keep you out of Heaven.  The only thing that will get you into Heaven is the Grace of God, and the only thing that will keep you out of Heaven is your refusal to put your faith in Jesus Christ.”[4]  “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”[5] 

          One of the problems with Christian families is that we teach our kids to believe in Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and Jesus.  Then they have a hard time believing that anything we tell them is true.  It doesn’t help that our education system has taken Christianity out of the picture.  In Acts 19:15, the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?"  Isn’t it about time you checked out Romans 10:9? That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  The absolute truth is that this country was founded as a Christian nation under the inspiration of Providence.  They were spiritually led men, establishing that our rights are from God and not the government. 

          Our President, in the days before the election, made a pretense of being Christian, apparently for political advantage.  His pastor said that he was a politician who would say anything to get elected.  “There is a remarkable consistency in what Barack Obama has done over the years, despite inconsistencies in what he says”.[6]   “Of the twenty-two civilizations that have appeared in history, nineteen of them collapsed when they reached the moral state the United States is in now.”[7]  “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”[8]

 

          I have been watching the History Channel series “America, The Story of Us”.  I was not surprised to see that they told only part of the story.  This series, combined with the American Heritage series by Wallbuilders[9] succeed in telling the whole story.  As I expected, the History channel series almost completely left out the spiritual aspects of our founding.  The series was very good at showing what happened, but left out a lot of the underlying aspects which were of course spiritual.  In the same reasoning, the progressives must get rid of the spirituality of our nation in order to establish their control. 

 

          Progressives are socialists.  The Nazi’s (National Socialist Party) were, and are Socialists.  Some progressives have been hiding under in the cloak of Liberalism. I am sick and tired of those who are conservative being called Nazi’s, since the conservative movement is espousing smaller government and more individual freedom, which is far from socialism.  The Bible does not teach socialism.  Jesus was not a socialist.  Sharing, or giving unto others voluntarily, by personal choice, is a lot different from having it taken from you and redistributed.  The eighth commandment establishes the right to ownership of private property. Giving the coat off your back is a self generated charity.  If the government takes from one and gives to another, it is in violation of all that is Holy, and wholly American.
