If you believe everything is okay in America, maybe it’s time you removed your rose-colored glasses. It’s time to see things as they really are! America is about to be swallowed up by a gigantic sinkhole!
As we are all well aware, America was founded by people who were looking for personal freedom and the ability to live their lives free from the tyranny that seems to eventually characterize all civil governments.
There are two opposing forces in our world: one is a force for good, the other a force for evil. Strangely, people often confuse the two! The prophet Isaiah said, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
We have two major political systems in America today. It often seems they are just as diametrically opposed as the light and darkness of which the prophet spoke. Upon closer examination, however, we may find they are both blinded to certain elements of the truth.
There seems to be a darkness making it impossible for men in government to see what’s happening in the world. This seems to be due, at least in part, to the fact they are ignoring the spiritual side of things.
In the last few decades, America seems to have turned her back on God. That turned off the spiritual illumination that was such an important part of America’s successes. We were never defeated in battle as long as we trusted in God. We wonder if America will ever win another battle!
The Psalmist said: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” (Psalm 33:12) He said again, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” (Ps. 9:17)
Science is a wonderful thing! It peers into the smallest elements, making judgments based upon scientific fact. Is science afraid to examine the claims of the Bible? If so, it will never arrive at the whole truth. Behind every atom, quark, or molecule, they should see God! Scientific minds should understand that everything exists because of something which caused it to exist. There would have been no “Big Bang” without a power that “lit the fuse!”
If we look far enough into the past, we’ll discover God.
Let’s look at our original question: What Has America Done Wrong? The list should alarm us! Let it suffice to say “America has forgotten God!”
Letters to those in Washington seem to have the same effect as waving a handkerchief at a speeding locomotive. As Woodrow Wilson said, “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
Will America recover from the quagmire into which she has fallen? Regrettably, I must say it isn’t likely. We know global governance is coming! The Bible makes that clear. In addition, Jesus Christ will soon remove the “salt of the earth” that has helped to preserve us as a nation.
Those in high places who have been deceived will continue to believe that America’s strength has derived from her industry. But as Alexis de Tocqueville discovered, it was the pulpits of America, ablaze with the Word of God, that accounted for her successes. He concluded that if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.
America has sought to live apart from the Word of God. That’s what America has done wrong!
