In a democratic society the majority decides who will rule over them. That works great for a righteous nation, but it is a disaster for the nation that is unrighteous. Ungodly people elect ungodly people to positions of leadership. I mention this because it is gut wrenching and heart- breaking to see what has happened to our nation.
Here is one recent example. “Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) told CNS News.com—-if it were up to him, Americans would be completely free to smoke marijuana and gamble on the internet—but they shouldn’t be allowed ‘ total freedom’ in their financial decisions because those risky decisions might adversely affect others.” I guess he forgot that he played a major role in getting us in this present mess-but that’s another story.
Now, if you know anything about Rep. Frank, you know there are some other serious issues that I could mention. At one time I was shocked when such people were elected to office, but now I expect it. The spiritual condition of our nation is such that this is what you get. And, from all indications things are going to get worse. Hang on America,—it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
Meanwhile, this should serve as motivation for Christians to reach others for Christ. The only hope for a better society is better people. The only hope for America is for Christians to win enough souls to tip the vote in their favor. We have neglected our duty and now we are paying the price. We need to give up on the idea of “saving America” and focus on fulfilling our God-given mission—that is America’s only hope. We are to be building up the kingdom of God through winning souls. If we do that everything else will take care of itself. Don’t blame Barney and those like him for the demise of America. This is the product of our failure to do what we should. The blame should be laid on our doorstep! So what are we going to do about it?
