What a contrast we have… from then to now!

What a contrast…

and how many of you will remember these words:

The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities.

We need men who can dream of things that never were and ask “why not?”.

– John F. Kennedy

The problems of our world are certainly a little more complex today; but certainly the wisdom of these words, which were spoken by our former President, John F. Kennedy, has never rung truer.

May God help deliver us from this malaise that has fallen upon our society and our culture today, which has so blinded our people?

Here we are today, after having had over two generations now, who have been programmed by a secularized and godless education system; where our children have, and are being taught that faith and belief in God is absolutely irrelevant to anything that is of any importance or significance to their life or future?

The children of that first generation, are the very people who are today ruling in Washington DC; and this is the reason why the dividing lines between right and wrong, and good and evil, have been so blurred.

It is also the reason why we could have a Presidential candidate, as happened at Saddleback Church, with Barack Obama,  who announced to the world, on worldwide TV, that he cannot see anything wrong with the extermination of over 50 million unborn babies; and says for him to call that wrong is above his pay grade.

May God help us, and is it any wonder why our nation is in trouble today, with leaders like this; who also can’t see why the institution of marriage should be only defined, as being between one man and one woman; but who would allow same sex marriages to happen?

This is a world gone mad; and certainly the Bible warns us against this practice; and of our having rulers over us who cannot tell the difference between what is good, and what is evil… what is right, and what is wrong.

Isaiah 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

The only hope for America, and I cannot say this enough, is that we have a Spiritual Awakening; as most of our citizens today, having been so secularized and programmed by our education system, our culture, and our media, until we have been virtually turned into a hedonistic society, where there are no absolute values; or right or wrong; and every man and woman does what seems right in their mind, and according to their way of thinking.

Folks, our nation’s laws were not founded upon individual feelings; and nor were they founded upon any transitory politically correct nonsense either; but they were founded upon God’s Word, folks… end of story! And unless we get back to that point, as a society, then we cannot have a future that you and I, as Christians, would ever want for our children.

It’s up to us, and the ball is in our court. So let’s pray folks… as if our future depended upon it!

Pray that God’s wisdom and God’s Word would once again be valued and honored in our land, among all our people; and that our nation repents; and that Christians would humble themselves; and turn from their wicked ways; and begin to seek after God’s face (meaning intimacy of relationship); and that God would hear from heaven, and then heal our land. Amen
