What’s Going On In America…

 What’s going on in America is actually the result of what has GONE on in America! Stay with me and I think you’ll understand what I mean. More and more the question is being asked, “what’s going on in America?” “Why does America seem to be spinning out of control?” The answer is not as simple as blaming it on the extremist groups like the alt-right, neo-Nazis’ or the radical left Antifa. Both groups represent tragic expressions of extremism that is sinful, unbiblical, unacceptable and destructive to culture, morality and national civility. And neither group or their actions can be rationalized away, or not held accountable.

The seeds of the current tensions in our nation are not simply the results of the recent Presidential election, as some have tried to suggest… in fact it could be argued that both sides, the radical left and the atl-right have merely seized upon a season of discontent that has been largely hyped, perhaps even created on some level by much of the main stream media, which now appears to have more of a socially progressive cultural agenda it wants to advance, than it does a desire to report news as news, and further promoted in course after course in many of today’s academic institutions. In the public world, it is reflected through “politically correct” speech designed to create fear that we might offend someone with improper titles, gender issues or just about anything anyone declares off-limits.

Be that as it may, no one in their right mind, or who understands our nation’s founding principles (a large and steadily declining segment of Americans have no real knowledge of America’s founding principle or documents), or who has even a rudimentary understanding of scripture could ever condone the kinds of violence, destruction and even deaths that are resulting from these groups. Yet, the fact is, what’s going on in America is the natural by-product of a nation in decay and a culture that has lost its moral foundation.

What you are watching before you very eyes is more of a modern moral meltdown than a “mid-course” cultural correction. It is the “bill” that has finally come due after almost 4 decades of Americans being taught, and subsequently swallowing, the post-modern ideas that everything is subjective, that there are no absolutes, and that every person’s opinion represents a valid code for living. But, perhaps even more frightening, is the fact that this is tragically the norm, historically and biblically speaking. When a society loses a transcendent source of values that determine what is right and wrong, which for America is the Holy Scripture/Bible, the historical basis and foundation of American rights, freedoms and law, it is only a matter of time before chaos, in-fighting, and national division occur. When that happens, a nation becomes like Israel in the age of the Judges, ”…Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” It is a prescription for cultural disaster, national ruin and eventual judgement from God.

America has given up its moral foundation and as the scriptures say, “if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3) So do you see, the real answer to the question, “What’s going on in America?” Is found in understanding what has gone on in America for the past 40 years.

What can you do? Pray, urgent prayers for this nation. Pray for spiritual Awakening and church revival. I believe it is our last and only hope for change. As you pray, keep living for God, obeying Him and worshipping every chance you have. And remember, God is always trying to take you someplace new.
