Why does the wicked renounce God and say in his heart, “You will not call to account”? (Psalm 10:13 ESV)
if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3 ESV)
The attitude of many in our nation has been to renounce God and the authority of his Word. This new sense of “enlightenment” mocks God and seeks to eradicate his name from our national life. We have allowed great spiritual darkness into our land. The present course that we are on will prove to be disastrous, if we don’t turn back to God.
The church in America must be awakened to turn from our own sins and to pray. We are responsible for much of the moral chaos that we see in our culture. The lack of teaching on discipleship in many of our churches has resulted in many false conversions. Following Jesus as our Lord and walking away from our sinful, rebellious and self – centered lives is not optional.
The darkness that was sown into our culture during the sexual revolution of the 60’s and 70’s has resulted in a harvest of lawlessness, and we are presently reaping what we have sown. Sexual sin (both heterosexual and homosexual) has gone unopposed in many American churches. Truth and compassion must be expressed as we all take inventory of our own lives and repent of our sins. Greed and excessive materialism has infiltrated the Church, and with some, it has become its main message.
We are called to be in the world, but not of it. God is full of mercy and it’s time for his people to return to him. Do you hear Him calling?
