America is engulfed in an age of self inflicted tragedy. Police officers and Sheriff deputies are being killed in the streets, businesses and personal properties are being looted and burned to the ground, seniors are being sucker punched on busy sidewalks, and all in the name of peaceful protest. We are a nation that boasts of the rule of law while some politicians and news media argue that the cause of this anarchy is just.
As a nation, we exacerbate and perpetuate our problems by desensitizing our children to the awfulness of plunder, arson, rape, murder, etc. through media, music and video games. Our education system, from preschool to graduate school, has long been becoming a social engineering movement for the advancement of Socialism, Marxism, Communism, Neo-Nazi, and more.
Our nation, for the first time in its history, is being governed largely by a ruling class that is without moral restraint. We pride ourselves for doing anything we want, anytime we want and anywhere we want—all under the guise of “human rights.” Relativism has become the dominant moral philosophy of our time. Right and wrong are determined by the individual on the fly, and what is wrong for him today, he may deem right tomorrow.
How did we get here as a country? Some blame slack gun control laws, chemical imbalance, psychosis, problematic childhood or racism. Others simply point the finger of blame across the aisle of the capital building or across the street to the nearest counter protest group. God has a different idea about who is to blame. He says,“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9)”
The solution is quite simple; if you are willing to participate, here is where you need to start, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”(Acts 16:31) And then, follow the example of a king of old, “And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,” (2 Chronicles 33:12)
