A Godless Nation: Doomed To Fail

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.

      'And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.' 1 John 5:11-12 KJV. You see friend, God wants you to know Him. In this life and forever in the life to come.

    True words that are desperately needed to be heard and understood by a dying nation!

    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!

    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.

      tbplayer: you’re right you can’t but I can…courts have told parents in divorce custody battles what faiths they can practice in their home including no faith…chk the records…and certain homes have been refused permission to adopt based on faith…and your argument pursuant to separation of church and state you argument is specious…
