Slumber of indifference
To those who value life and liberty -- has the recent eruption of vicious acts of violence in our nation shaken your soul yet? Or what will it take to awaken us from our slumber of indifference? Why this continual shift towards evil in our society?! (Are the causes of this national plummet really that difficult to perceive?) Even the man in the White House has been shown stating that "our nation needs to do some soul searching"!
Could it possibly be that when a nation legitimizes brutality and destruction of life against some of its members, that those actions open a path for ever more immoral behavior by its population at large? Of course it does - if a referee openly allows roughness in a sport, it will increase - in number and degree from a broad spectrum of the players on both teams! (To put it simply, it will propagate more and greater acts of unacceptable behavior.)
We presently have "leaders" - at all levels of government (most importantly "at the top") - who not only allow, but aggressively promote and protect the greatest act of violence on our planet today - the brutal destruction of babies in their mother's womb (which should be the safest place on earth!). And they act not only nationally, but on a global scale - massively! (While at the same time, the majority of our nation's populace abhors such action!) Then these "leaders" turn to society and question: "Why all of the increased violence?" What hypocrisy!! If laws condone and legitimize the death of the weakest members of society, what direction do those who construct such licentiousness think society will take?
Obviously, we desperately need change - and NOT the change that some have bought into - we need to totally displace those immoral "social engineers" in the political ranks, with reputable people who at the very least recognize and embrace the God-given dignity and right to life of every human being! We NEED people in governance who hold Christian values and beliefs to genuinely uphold and foster our national motto: In God we trust! Our founders even stated that our constitution was written for a people who were God-fearing, and that it would not function without that very stipulation.
And here lies the crux of our problem, we have distanced ourselves from our Creator - Who blessed this nation to start with, because of its original desire and purpose to actually form "One nation under God." As we have abandoned Him, we have pushed His wisdom and protection away also - and guess who has shown up to fill the void - he who Jesus called a "murderer from the beginning." Jn. 8:44
Is this really the future that you want to bequeath to your children and grand children - or even yourselves?! I DO NOT! The damage already done is considerable -to say the least -our government, schools, media and society itself have been deeply infected. However, our merciful God will hear our prayers for divine assistance - if our cry is genuine and proven with our own conversion of life. With the arms of prayer and sacrifice (This kind can go out by nothing, but prayer AND fasting. MK. 9:28), let us begin the renewal of America!
Almighty Father, in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, banish every evil spirit from our midst, and heal us. Restore us as individuals, families and society itself; renew and strengthen our faith, that our country will turn to You in faith and totally commit our lives and nation to You! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
