This is the kind of post some folks love to hate.
For eight years, liberals screamed that Bush had destroyed America. For the last four years, conservatives have blamed Obama and the democrats. The sad fact is that we have all had a hand in the self-destruction of our country.
Who’s in Charge?
The Bible is no longer studied; its passages no longer memorized. Even if one doesn't believe it, the Bible is, indeed, the Word of God. It is our sword, our protection in the fight for our lives. Without its truths internalized in our hearts, is it any wonder that Americans are deceived into electing ungodly men to run our country? America largely doesn’t want to include God. Period.
Years ago, it was Atari that commanded the attention of America’s children. Now, it’s a multitude of handheld devices, the internet – often uncensored and unsupervised – where our children spend countless hours; cell phones, and brutal, bloody, desensitizing violent “shoot ‘em up” video games that not only have the children addicted, but the parents as well. No wonder we have children who shoot and kill.
It is not the guns…it’s the lack of interaction with God-fearing, Bible-believing, parents who commit to raising children in a Godly manner. It’s the lack of fathers and mothers working together (whether in the same home or not)…there is no excuse! If you do not have contact with your little children: Straighten up, act right, get help if you need it, and be a parent! But I digress. Sort of.
These days, it seems the only thing that gets undivided attention is a text message or a video game. Watch young parents in public…their children don’t have their attention. A cell phone does! And why do we feel that if a phone rings, it MUST be answered?!
We’ve got a nation too full of people dependent upon the government for their livelihood. Too many children know only one parent. Churches are divided, deceived, and confused, teaching a watching world that they don’t really have any standard by which to live. Why? Because the Bible has lost its authority in America, in the church, in the hearts of people.
- When is the last time you complained about our nation, our president, your spouse, the high costs of gas?
- When is the last time you wasted an hour (or two or three) in front of the computer?
- When is the last time you spent an hour on your cell phone gossiping?
- When is the last time you spent an hour in prayer praying God’s will?
- When is the last time you spent an hour in prayer seeking His direction over your own plans?
- When is the last time you spent an hour in prayer?
When is the last time you memorized a Bible Passage? Spent half an hour reading the Word? Spent half an hour in quiet (or loud) prayer?
The upcoming election is more important than any of us realize.
PRAY GOD’S WILL.
It’s our responsibility.
