I started this blog, sort of as a way to make sense of my life following my divorce, but I think it has now become my place to write commentary on what is happening in the world, the United States in particular and how it relates to my Christian walk.
Writing about current events has never been my plan, but it seems it’s pretty much the only way I can express how utterly disappointed, I am in how easily and eagerly, the American people have begun to bow down to Baal.
Let’s be clear, this downward spiral, didn’t begin four years ago. It began much earlier. It began when the country decided to replace God with whatever idol suited them. Sure, I know we have freedom of religion in our country, but there used to be a set morals and values that we were all united under. We knew right from wrong. In 2021, righteousness is frowned upon. Clinging to identity and socio-economic status are everything.
Even Christians have fallen victim to being Social Justice Warriors.
I don’t know about you, but these past nine to ten months have weighed so heavily on me, not so much because of the virus itself, but because of the lack of discernment about it. No one questions the narrative put out by our government or the media. It is just expected that every American will accept the dogma without question. The average American still believes that this virus is killing people in unprecedented numbers. All you have to do is look at the data to know that in fact is not true. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/09/25/cdc-data-shows-high-virus-survival-rate-99-plus-for-ages-69-and-younger-94-6-for-older/
Alas, fear has taken hold and time marches on. Small businesses have to alter how they do business or close, churches are afraid to resume services, friends are afraid to spend time together and god forbid that family’s should gather to celebrate the holiday season or just to visit. And for what, to slow the spread of a virus? Where is the science to prove that is even possible? We are only just beginning to see the long term implications of such draconian measures.
There is so much more that I could cover here, but that really isn’t the point of this post. At the core of this, it’s about finding peace in the midst of this terrible. This is about doing justly, loving kindness and walking humbly with God.
When we turn away from evil, and return to the will of God, our nation can be restored. It is possible! Remember, God is patient, not wanting anyone to perish but requires us to all come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9.
God is waiting on us to become His nation once more. Are you ready, are you willing to cast aside the idols that have pulled us to this place? It’s not too late.
