Christian America Has Hope!

Christian America Has Hope!

Another July fourth; oh how I do thank God that I was raised free, with prosperity and opportunity.

But my country today sits idle and silent when our president says “America is not a Christian nation”. Residents today are silent while unelected judges tell us we must accept the redefinition of marriage and the redefining of the family; breaking the bedrock of our nation...and we are threatened with loss of freedom and opportunity and prosperity if we do not submit.

But there is hope!

The nation sits on its collective hands while churches and individuals are told they cannot live by what they preach, and they must not offend anyone in the preaching. Truth, Gender, Morals; everything today is emotional and personal and founded on nothing but desire. “Everyone doing what is right in his own eyes...” because they do not worship God.

But there is hope!

The nation of the best and the brightest thinks without reason; allowing even small children to decide their gender based on their feelings instead of their physical make up. Gender is not a matter of decision it’s a matter of DNA! “But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female.” - Jesus Christ.

Where do we turn for truth as a nation when our media spreads lies and the gullible populace eats it up and perpetuates the deception?

Here is an excerpt from an article by W.J. Hennigan, quoting Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, concerning Gays in the military; printed in the Seattle Times dated June 10th, 2015:
“Recognizing that our openness to diversity is one of the things that allowed us to be the best in the world, we must insure that everyone who’s able and willing to serve has the full and equal opportunity to do so....and we must start from a position of inclusivity not exclusivity.”

The first problem with this – the first lie – is that the military is strong because it is diverse. Our military has always epitomized the melting pot society – of many, one. There is no room for individuality in a fighting body. This is the group that operated best under the policy “Don’t ask, don’t tell.” We were our best when the military enforced a moral code based on biblical principles.
The second lie is that inclusiveness will make us strong. This has inherent problems and a quick look at the world will expose the lie. When we forget our own tastes and morals and doctrines for the sake of others we cease to be us. These groups we are suppose to “coexist” with are diametrically opposed to each other. One group must lose it’s identity for the sake of the other and that is not inclusiveness and does not make us strong.

But there is hope!

There was a time when immigrants to this country came to assimilate. We were strong when it was the immigrants who came to be a part of what we had not to bring diversity and multiculturalism. There was a time when people who didn’t believe the same as we did still recognized it was that majority Christian belief and the morals affixed to it that held us together. It was the bonding agent and the answer to diversity.

A melting pot means we might go in looking different but we come out the same metal. It’s a cleansing and purification process where by the desires of the few are forsaken for the good of the many. Today we forsake the good of the many for the desires of the few and it’s destroying us. Today we wave banners of “Pride” to the shame of our nation...but there is hope!

We were “One nation, under God”, but we are no longer under God and no longer one.
“I tremble for our nation when I reflect that God is just and that His justice cannot sleep forever” - Thomas Jefferson.

I tremble too Mr. Jefferson, but not as one without hope. (1Thessalonians 4:13)

This may not be a Christian nation but Christianity will survive so long as God ordains it...and then we will go home. We as Christians may not live free but we have freedom in Christ.

These are frightening times, and so confusing, but we can find comfort in knowing that like Queen Esther (Esther 4:13-14) we were born for such a time as this. God will do great things in these dark hours and we are privileged to be a part of it if we do not faint and we persevere.

It saddens me that my children do not live with the freedoms I grew up with, but they have hope.

God may yet do a miracle in America but if He doesn’t He is still God and we still have hope!
