A Godless Nation: Doomed To Fail

The truth is a hard thing to hear and even a more bitter pill to swallow. But until we face the truth, we are doomed to sink lower into the abyss as a society. The truth is that a godless nation is a nation doomed to fall.

We as a nation have slowly accepted and pompously come to believe that wisdom begins and stems from us. Secularism is the view that all things religious should be excluded from daily public living, specifically pertaining to political and social concerns.

We blame Obama’s reelection on fraud and people who want something for nothing – but we overlook and reject the truth that we are responsible for creating the environment, going back perhaps a century or more, that would allow for his kind to achieve positive notoriety.

Thanks to secularism, the mindset today is that God and religious opinion should be relegated to a church on Sunday morning. Courts have ruled with increasing frequency that, depending on the circumstances, religion has no place in the home.

The created have determined they are above the Creator. Dennis Fisher writes: “Every age has its own thoughts, ideas, and values that influence the culture, ‘the spirit of the age.’ It is the kind of growing consensus that morally lulls us to sleep, gradually causing us to accept society’s latest values. This is the world’s peer pressure – a satanically inspired system of values and ideas that cultivates a lifestyle that is independent of God.” (The Spirit Of The Age; ODB.org; 12/3/12)

In my article “No Foundations, No Future” I quoted I wrote “I defer to Thomas Jefferson, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” WND.com; 7/22/03)

An expanded understanding of Jefferson’s words is that government reflects the mores of society. We have become a humanist society and our government reflects same.

We blame Obama’s reelection on fraud and people who want something for nothing – but we overlook and reject the truth that we are responsible for creating the environment, going back perhaps a century or more, that would allow for his kind to achieve positive notoriety.

We have become tolerant of every form of debauchery and corruption because humanism and secularism have replaced righteousness and accountability.

The meaning of religion has been changed. It no longer has to do with a believer’s good works – today people claim themselves religious based on their idea of same and equate it with Salvation. This is a tragic and personally damning form of reasoning that views church as a reliquary for those foolish enough to believe God created all, is over all, and that salvation is through Jesus Christ alone.

We are filled with pride, and we believe ourselves to be wise and able to govern without God. Which I argue is what brought us to where we are today. We learned nothing from Rome and Greece of the past.

History is replete with examples of societies placing their wisdom above the wisdom of God and the embracing of immoral and Erebusic behavior. But America has been led to believe we can succeed by embracing the decadent lifestyles and failed government models of Europe of the past.

The government today has become a poisonous filaria, and we are the mammals from which it is deriving its sustenance.

Many are ashamed to stand up publicly for the truth of scripture. Venerable Christian groups that for decades stood rooted and grounded on the Word of God are today preaching a message of capitulation to sin and debauchery. Church leaders are preaching damnable messages that are leading people astray.

We witness people nodding their heads in approval while godless vagabonds misquote the scriptures. Our hope is no longer based on the hand of God but on the handouts and promises of man.

Now we are confronted with Christmas, and I do mean confronted with Christmas. Whether or not December 25th is the actual date of the birth of Jesus Christ is immaterial. What is not immaterial is that He was, in fact, born, he lived, was crucified, and was raised on the third day. Because of His birth, salvation has been made available to all who believe.

But secularism and humanism are not belief systems synonymous with the acceptance of God’s free gift.

Perhaps this Christmas we will accept God’s free Gift vis-à-vis Jesus Christ and in so doing we can pass to our children the mores that they will use to transform society and, by extension, our government into that which reflects the “values and ideals that cultivate a lifestyle that is ‘dependent on’ God” – juxtaposed to “independent of God.”

    “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness ‑these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. …And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that National morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle". George Washington

    We are dealing with a incredibly clever enemy. One that is much smarter then almost everyone in Washington DC. Seriously this enemy is so clever I sometimes think it's exactly what people refer to as Satan himself. What is Satan? Well… like God I think its incomprehensible.

    Excellent article! I, for the record, am 30 (lumped into that embarrassing "youth" category) and I believe fully that we should get back to our Godly, Christian roots. The fact that we have moved so far away from them accounts for the vast, vast majority of the problems we have today. Yet if you believe in Christianity and the Constitution, you are called names. But don't be intimidated. Remember, the Bible says that blessed are they who are ridiculed for their beliefs. I look around our country and worry that our values are being wiped away by freakish and immoral people–who are proud of being immoral. But, I am hopeful that in these next four difficult years the people will be shaken into reality and return to the Constitution and those moral truths it is based upon. Only when we fix ourselves morally can we fix our country. I am hopeful that the sad reelection of Obama will–in the long run–be the best thing that has happened to our country in a long time, in that the people will flock back to morality and the Constitution when they see up close and dramatically the failure of liberalism and secularism.

    Reading your email comment on this article, Mychal, regarding the atheist who went ballistic, I have to wonder just what is WRONG with these so-called atheists.

    I was raised and confirmed Missouri Synod Lutheran, even attending one of their tiny California schools from the 2nd half of the 6th through the 8th grade.

    Lutheranism turned me into an atheist, though I didn't declare my position until after I'd begun reading Ayn Rand and relating to her hatred for all things that attacked the individual as well as her strong belief in absolute truth.

    However, I never felt any need to attack the beliefs of Christians – or anyone else.

    I've commented more than once that hostility from any who claim not to believe in God only makes sense if they have no real confidence in their position. Unless they are threatened by the possibility (more likely by the very fact that they KNOW there is a GOD), why would they do anything but just IGNORE we "loonies"?

    I'm also reminded of Jesus words to the church at Laodicea in Revelation chapter 3:

    [15] “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! [16] So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
    (Revelation 3:15-16 ESV).

    Anger is a far better sign than apathy.

    The angry are far closer to salvation than those who are simply uninterested!

  9. Paul Hubert December 8, 2012 at 5:30 am #

    :-)

    One other small point, Mychal: more and more lately I've been stating clearly that DISbelief in God is irrational just as belief in the chance development of life is irrational.

    I've seen the numbers run in different ways, but for me, at least, it really requires no more analysis that a GLANCE at the structure of a single protein to realize it would NEVER have come about by any chance process – let alone the infinitely complex interdependencies between proteins in a living cell!

    The more we advance technologically the more we are able to discover additional LAYERS of complexity we hadn't dreamed of before. And anyone familiar with any serious design process understands the MARK of a designer – especially that of the master craftsman!

    I have especially appreciated those who have formulated simple, clear, compelling LOGICAL arguments against abortion. No "religion" or "faith" required.

    “Thanks to secularism, the mindset today is that God and religious opinion should be relegated to a church on Sunday morning. Courts have ruled with increasing frequency that, depending on the circumstances, religion has no place in the home.”

    You really need a cite for this. I can’t think of a single instance, let alone “with increasing frequency,” where courts have ruled that religion has no place in the home. I would be very interested in seeing that.

    And no one is telling you can’t celebrate Christmas any way you please. What secularists are saying is that you can’t use the power of government to force others to celebrate Christmas the way you please, or indeed to celebrate it at all. No one is telling you not to talk about your religion in public, or even on public property. We are saying you can’t use the machinery of government to impose your religious beliefs on others. The flip side of this is that others can’t use the machinery of government to impose their beliefs on you.

    Every religious group is in a minority somewhere, and hence vulnerable to coercion and oppression. By insisting that government remain neutral with respect to religion, you protect your own rights as much as anyone else’s. Why this is such a hard concept for so many people, I will never understand.

    And with regard to the title of your essay, why is it that the godless states in the world are generally doing better than the religious ones? The best standards of living and the highest rates of personal satisfaction are, for the most part, in the countries with the highest percentages of non-believers. I’ll take Finland over the Philippines, or Denmark over the Dominican Republic, any day.

      Tony is probably overlooking the role of blacks in Africa who captured their own people from rival tribes and sold them (the leader of Benin (formerly the Kingdom of Dahomey) went on his own apology tour in the US, but that did not get a lot of media coverage) to Europeans. Muslims today still participate in slavery and they are being welcomed by the current administration. None of this was taught in school, had to find it on my own.

    Obama was reelected because this country has turned from God, turned away from Israel and turned toward worshipping at the Altar of Obama. Until almost one half of this country wakes up and realizes that without God we are doomed we will continue to live in the depravity and selfishness that those who voted for him love so much.

    You Sir truly are one of my hero’s thank you for the work you do! Overheard another one of my hero’s when asked if GOD answered prayer’s, he replied “If you have the audacity to ask GOD to move a mountain, you had best be willing to show up in the morning with your shovel”. Mychal, I fear this mountain we need to move will not be made to budge with the use of the implements we have elected. A complete rebuild of the Republican party or a new conservative party, and term limits needs to happen the sooner the better. Stay safe my friend, may GOD bless.

    I want my pastor to read this. So many members need to hear these things and they never do. As I have shopped for Christmas, I have seen a lack of Christmas spirit and an almost unresponsive feeling about what this holiday truly means. No, we don’t know exactly when Christ was born, but we know he was as you say and he is our only hope of salvation. It breaks my heart to see what is happening to the people of this country. They seem so apathetic to how blessed they are and how fragile those blessings are and that they come only from God. We go to all the Texas A&M University football games in College Station and one of the reasons besides being Aggie parents and fans is because there is a spirit in that town that hearkens back to the kind of patriotism and love of family values that makes you realize those values are not dead in America. I’m sure that many of you reading this can tell me the same thing about the place you live or a place you visit. I’m determined to keep those beliefs before me and fight relentlessly to keep others from destroying them. I talk to my granddaughter, who is seven, about America whenever I get a chance and I tell her don’t let anyone tell you you don’t matter or you don’t have a voice. I hope she understands and that I am somehow instilling respect for this country and how lucky she is to live here. The bad guys only win if we stop talking and let them inspire fear of the government in us. They should fear us.

Whether you call it evil, Satan or just a bunch of con artist thugs, we need to use our faith to unite and come forward to slay this out of control government.
    Images of a serpent rise up whenever the constant barrage of lies emerge from this government. The serpent never rests, we must also never rest and defeat him. We must develop a REAL plan of action to defeat this monster.
    I don’t have the answers, but we will never get them if we stay as a multitude of separate splinter groups. We need to pray, join hands and come together as responsible adults. God will stand with us.

    As always, your article speaks to the heart of the problem!

    Have you read “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn?
    This book also addresses the issue very profoundly.
    The comparison to the calamity that befell Israel for it’s rejecting
    of God, and what has been happening in our beloved country
    is shockingly similar. I could not put it down.
    I have absolutely no connection to this book in any way, it just

    God will hold us accountable for what we have allowed to happen and will also out of his boundless mercy and grace forgive us and restore what we have so unthinkingly turned our backs on. God willing those people who are called by his name will truly repent and turn back to him he will hear us and will restore us Amen.
    We blame Obama’s reelection on fraud and people who want something for nothing – but we overlook and reject the truth that we are responsible for creating the environment, going back perhaps a century or more, that would allow for his kind to achieve positive notoriety.

    We have become tolerant of every form of debauchery and corruption because humanism and secularism have replaced righteousness and accountability. It is time to stand up for God because when we stand for him he will stand with us. God Bless Israel and America.

    Facebook, youtube, social media in general, and a 24hr news cycle needing to conjure up stories to fill their time slots are creating “reality TV” wannabes by the thousands. It is very easy for immoral, indecent, stupid behavior to encourage even more dysfunctional behavior to be the competitive norm. Political correctness in the name of “sophistication” is dumbing us down to new levels.

    Also, an education system catering to those who are incapable of critical thinking, provides an ever ending supply of cretins. If we cannot get back the true social fabric for society, return the word shame to the dictionary, as well as morality and humility, we will continue to devolve until the evil master planners have sent us to a place of no return.

    I love the "poisonous filaria" reference to our present government.
    Mychal's understanding of the spirit of man createing the inner and subsequent outer environment called man's lifestyle is really worth our paying attention. Jesus Himself taught that love is obedience to the moral and civil codes of His Law, and He further said "The words that I speak are spirit and they are life," (John 6:63). I wonder what life would be like if everyone listened to Jesus' words.

    Mychal,
    This is one of the many posts which I have and continue to use among my fellow Catholics and the website common to us. We can no longer sit on the sidelines waiting simply for common sense to suddenly strike our political leadership or for the Holy Spirit to awaken the sleeping disciples within the laity and the hierarchy.

    It is far too late in these social justice debates with outright disobedience and political correctness approaches to today’s perversions of human behavior and betrayal of biblical truth for our hierarchy to simply urge the Laity into action. Our actions are of little consequence within the media and for the most part futile if we do not have the weight of authoritative clerical discipline and/or pronouncements supporting our voices.
    Unless we witness prominent church officials and bishops condemning, defrocking and excommunicating these self styled ruling class individuals who present themselves as equally prominent laymen and/or politicians who openly challenge church law while imposing pain and suffering on the people with ill fated self endowed elitist rhetoric and socially lethal legislation the laity will continue to be recognized and labeled just as our president assumes us to be, uneducated uninformed homophobes clinging to our guns and Bibles.
    It is spiritually inhumane for hierarchy and church leadership to not display promptly and publicly their condemnation of obvious Evil policies and practices by groups and individuals calling them by name defining the consequence of their actions for the discernment of the faithful as we would expect from truly devout shepherds.

    Thank you, Mychal. Well written article/rant. This brings to mind the Judge who was disbarred because he refused to remove the Ten Commandments from his building. Meanwhile, What is located in the Supreme Court of our Nation? The Ten Commandments. It just doesn’t make sense. Not only do we need to pray for our sins but the sins of others. This is a lifelong process and those who have just begun, hoorah! The Awakening. People don’t work alone. It takes God to guide and we need to know when He has led us to the answers of our prayers. God helps those who help themselves!

      Too bad the judges on the Supreme Court don’t look over their shoulders once in awhile and read those Ten Commandments…

    Indeed we, as a nation, have kicked God out of the town square. We cannot publically display nativity scenes without legal action. Business models have taken Christ out of the holiday season, so as not to offend the unbelievers. Why is it that those that are anti-religion and demand tolerance of sinful and alternative lifestyles, are so intolerant of Christianity? Perhaps because they see the Peace we derive from a relationship with our Lord and Savior, and they know it’s something they do not and cannot possess in their current belief system.
    So be at Peace this Christmas season believers. The Lord of the universe is in control, and God is good all the time, and to Him the glory. Amen.

    Your article is spot-on. Atheists, who are a small, but vocal, minority of people, have been systematically robbing us of our Christian rights. They file lawsuits and the defendants involved cave in because they do not have the money for a legal fight.

    Politicians also cave to atheists because the squeaky wheel gets the grease and the atheists are forever squeaky.

    We look at all the horrible things taking place in America and ask why. These things are happening as a direct result of a Godless nation. We cannot remove every thought and every evidence of God in America and then expect God to continue to protect us and our nation as he has done for years.

    I serve as a Christian Church minister and view current events not in light of politics, but in light of spiritual matters. It all boils down to giving reign to Satan, rather than to God. There are many who will dispute this statement, but it really doesn’t matter to me. It is what it is.

    We Christians, supposedly a majority in America, need to get up off our duffs and stand up to those who have been stripping us of our Christian rights. Much of what is happening today is a direct result of a Christian just sitting back and saying, “Oh, ain’t it awful?”

    I love you Mychal Massie for posting this truth. I believe it with all my heart. Our problem is not republicans or democrats or government or the administration, our problem is that the Church has not been bold enough to stand up for God's truths, no matter the cost. Yes, the government reflects the mores of society as you said, and until we change ourselves, the government won't be changed.

    This attitude of capitulation to the mounting odds we face today to do Gods work when the forces of Evil have been multiplying and life has become easier and our spirits are weakened by the sheer multitude of pleasures which modern technology offers us along with the benefits being granted by ill-fated government instituted social justice rights and privileges which dilute our moral conscience is certainly not the course designed to lead us to paradise.
    We don’t surrender our franchise as god fearing Christians simply because we are outnumbered or overwhelmed by the enemy. David didn’t. Why pray for God’s intervention if we are reluctant to enter the fight or at least plead for sanity among the confusion which evil has gleefully developed in our society? Peace to you.
