Assault on Values in America
politics is no longer about Democrats, Republicans, or Independents ...
It's a war of competing ideas and worldviews. It's a conflict over beliefs and values, over the ideas that will rule society. It's about whether certain individuals are above the law or are all Americans equal under the law. It's about truth... or is truth even important? It's about the direction we want this country to go in the future. It's about the world we leave for our children. It's about what god we acknowledge or whether we acknowledge any god at all. It's about the same struggle man has gone through since the beginning of time, the struggle between good and evil.
President Bill Clinton suggested in 1997, "We are redefining in practical terms the immutable ideals that have guided us from the beginning." What Bill Clinton promoted in 1997, Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have advanced even further. In fact, nearly every President in the past century has chipped away, piece by piece, of the values held by our forefathers and have left us today with something totally warped of all that made America great.
It is a sad commentary on the American electorate that what once
would have been corporately rejected is now accepted. Americans have learned to
tolerate what is evil and have redefined that evil to appear good in order to
appease their consciences. It's what Senator Moynihan called, "defining
deviancy down." When some form of deviant behavior gets out of hand, we
simply redefine it as normal and learn to live with it and it becomes the new
Rejecting a holy God in favor of a more tolerant supreme force,
mankind lost all connection to something greater than himself resulting in a
form of nihilism that enables him to form a god in his own image. Everything
the human heart can imagine and desire becomes the ambition of life regardless
of the consequences to themselves or others.
Crime will become so out of control that governments will enforce
"crime-free" zones where politically correct communities will be pandered to
with their every desire. Outside those PC communities existence will be
"every-man-for-himself". Survival will be uppermost in most people's minds and
they will rely on their baser instincts to overcome the challenges they are
faced with. Murder, cheating and stealing will be commonplace as ruthless
individuals compete for power and authority in this choatic and tyranical
Sound like a bunch of science fiction hooey? Much of what I just
described is history. With the exception of some of the technological
stuff, much of the description would describe Nazi Germany, 18th century
France, or the Roman Empire prior to its fall. Unless humankind stands up in
defiance of the growing tyranny, America and the rest of the world is doomed to
repeat that history.
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14.
