While we are wrestling with the issues of the day, there is a God who is watching it all. More and more we are choosing to exclude or delete the Creator from our everyday lives and decision making. Is it any wonder that we make the choices that we do? We make choices based on what our friends or relatives are doing, what our political party is currently pushing and what seems to benefit us at the time. Morals and values are relative, political correctness is the order of the day and "what's in it for me ?" is a common question to ourselves before we do the right thing. Do we dare to buck the trends and just do what is right?
I do not know where this country is going, maybe to hell in a hand basket, but if we want to keep being a free land we better put the brakes on a lot of things we are doing right now. The cult of celebrity, the shallowness of our culture, the vulgarity of some of our conduct and the forsaking of decency, honor and integrity for fame or attention and not to mention corruption in every form of government, these things will surely bring us to the brink of disaster. Do we dare to stand on principles?
We have chosen a president like we choose our favorite movie star: "He's handsome, he's eloquent, he's cool, he's an African American". What about what he truly believes?
We are messing up the great experiment that is the United States of America for shallow reasons. Do we dare to go beyond the surface and find the truth?
What does "change" really mean. Does it mean obliterating the thought of God from every public view and forum so that we may not offend. Does it mean giving up our freedoms so we can have the government as our daddy? Does it mean true diversity or suppression of one group so others will not complain? Does it mean taking from some to give to others by force? Does it mean squashing free speech when we do not agree with it. Do we dare to stand up in the marketplace of ideas and say I believe in righteousness, freedom of religion, the dignity of the individual and the protection of the same no matter born or unborn ?
The government has now asked the citizens to rat on each other for speaking out. What? How did we get here ? Is there a right and a wrong? What does America truly stand for and why are we losing it? Where does God really fit in here? Do we dare ask him? The framers of our constitution did.Though the founders were not perfect they were wise enough to know that they should seek divine guidance to form this country into a free republic.
He's watching. He truly is and I don't think that he is amused.
