Points of Comparison
For some reason lately, when I read the Bible, I see America’s situation in the annals of ancient Israel. How am I like other America haters both in this country and in the world. One way I can think I am different is that rather than proclaim “Death to America” I pray for our countries repentance.
Are there good people in this country? According to Jesus, only God is good so the answer to that one is no. However, relatively speaking there are many people who try to do the right thing. One of the problems is that there are so many people of authority that are misguided and will not listen to the truth. People like the teachers. How did we get so many tenured professors that are socialists/progressives? The once great Christian institutions like Harvard and Yale, established to educate their students in the way of the truth of the Gospel, are now the leading proponents of atheism.
The courts that are supposed to guarantee our rights are perverting the constitution to mean something that it doesn’t say and are thereby denying Americans their freedoms.
The self serving politicians are doing nothing to stop the erosion of our freedoms. The rule of the day in Washington is compromise. There is no such thing in Washington as standing on your principles!
The media is barraging us constantly with progressive ideas and calling us haters of whatever when we stand up for what is right.
We have seen the major denominations of the Christian church cave in the these progressive pressures.
Then there is the Word of God. People misinterpret it, conveniently ignore parts of it and sometimes even try to change it; however the Word of God stands. The truth! A beacon of hope in a fallen world. To realize the hope that Scripture provides, read it, memorize it, and meditate on it. The Word of God will change your life. Then encourage your family and friends to do the same. We can, as a country, return to God; one person at a time.
