No one has to argue the fact that the policies of the Obama administration have taken us down the road toward destruction. What is arguable is if he is solely responsible for the reprehensible state that this country is in today. According to many blogs, websites and Christian commentary, the blame is placed on the current President and administration. But is he really the problem or is he the result of the moral decay in our society? And, if it’s due to moral decay, how did we get here in the first place? I find it utterly amazing at how many folks (especially Christians) are placing all of their hope in 2016 when the new guy or gal will come riding into town. It’s really disheartening to read many commentaries in the last several days in which many are singing the praises of Donald Trump and how he’s going to save us. Isn’t this the same song (insert different name) that the masses were singing back in 2008? Is our collective memory that short? It’s exactly this type of attitude that has gotten us to where we are today.
Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:13,” Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men,” (KJV). Prayer taken out of schools in 1962 was championed by one woman Madalyn Murray O’Hair. So the church allowed one woman to single handedly take prayer and bible reading out of schools. Because of this, instead of prayer in schools we now have pregnancy, abortions, sexually transmitted diseases, alternative lifestyles, witchcraft, satan worship, common core, school shootings and the list goes on. Not only has the church sat back and not taken a stand against sin in this nation, the church has rolled over, fallen asleep and allowed the legislation of sin. Some examples of this are:
There’s something fundamentally wrong when a church holds a chicken dinner, the people are coming out of the woodwork, but when a prayer meeting is called only 5 people show up. You know that the salt of the earth has lost its savor when you have churches opening its door as a nightclub hangout during spring break (click here), and instead of focusing on soul winning, we have pastors focused on getting new luxury private aircraft. If you attend at church like this you need to run as fast as you can and don’t look back, because the Holy Spirit has left a long time ago.
There has also been the rise of organized atheism with atheist churches and pastors establishing themselves in many communities.
The solution will never be a political one. A spiritual problem requires a spiritual solution. Instead of (in addition to) running to the ballot box we need to fall on our knees in repentance before the throne of God. “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up,” James 4:8-10 (KJV).
