It’s Not Because of President Trump: it’s Because of The Church
At the end of the day America is going in the wrong direction and she has been for a very long time. However, it is of paramount importance to understand that wrong direction has nothing to do with President Trump.
That said, every person with “eyes to see” has watched Democrats, many Republicans and the media do everything possible to destroy President Trump and his family. Members of his own administration have betrayed him and plotted against his noble efforts to guide America.
President Trump is leading America back to her halcyon days of as a robust economic, military and industrial juggernaut. The economic policies of President Trump are providing a season of prosperity across the board not witnessed in decades. But more even importantly, I categorically believe that through President Trump, God is proving us time to repent of our wickedness and turn back to Christ.
The proof of what I am saying is clearly visible for those who are willing to admit it.
As I was reading in the scriptures this morning, Psalm 33:12 jumped out at me. The Psalmist wrote, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” (KJV) Therein you have it, I thought.
There was a time that ours was a blessed nation and that God was indeed our Lord. Non- essential stores and businesses were closed on Sundays. Ergo, people had time for church and family. There was a time that television westerns to sit-coms to family programming had as their central theme a standard of morality based on Judeo- Christian principles. There was a time that families provided for themselves; euthanasia of the elderly was unheard of; crime rates outside of Chicago, New York, and New Jersey were low, and, despite what Planned Parenthood would have us believe, women weren’t lining up in back alleys to impale their unborn children on coat-hangers.
The United States of America meant something; we were proud to be Americans. “Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness” – truth, justice, and freedom – were key components to our way of life. For the most part, government understood its role and stayed out of matters that concerned the state. But, there is a reason man was expelled from the Garden of Eden, and that same willing disobedience has haunted man ever since.
So it has been with America. The greatest nation in the world, perhaps even in history, has reached a point that we’ve come to trust in men to the near complete abandonment of trusting in God. We have become a nation that celebrates the coarsest form of debauchery – and pagan ritualisms such as the government sanctioned murder of 55 million children. Schools are cesspools for the breeding of diseased minds; respect for personal property and property rights has been trumped by out-of-control government intrusion, and God is acceptable in the public square only if He is the prefix for profanity.
Pastors have stopped preaching Jesus Christ and embraced those things that God has called an abomination that would have been unthinkable on any level not that long ago. And even more egregious, these things have become so pervasive that current generations have lost all understanding of from whence America has come. And now we stand on the precipice of moral collapse.
I believe God has stayed His hand for the moment from the path that Clinton, Bush and Obama set us upon that was leading to the collapse of not only our historic traditions but also of our financial institutions, the public educational system, our military, and every institution we can point to. Our healthcare system was the finest in the history of the world – but thanks to the corrupt and baneful logic of the Communist-inspired, complicit with those who embrace the idea of something for nothing (or at the very least something which someone else pays for), we faced the collapse of medicine, in this country, as we have known it.
But, have we learned? I argue we have not. We hear people every day claiming to be praying for God to take back the country but not realizing we are doing everything in our power to ensure that doesn’t happen. We cannot continue to re-elect those who brought us to this level of destruction just as we cannot continue to elect those like them. Religion in this country has come to mean anything but Christ, and individual responsibility has been exchanged for that which is convenient.
The Psalmist was right, and the fact that the further we remove ourselves from God, the further we remove America from God. The end result of these actions assures us a place on the ash heap of history and we won’t be the first great nation to end up there for the same reasons. We’ll simply be the greatest to end up there.
President Trump is not the fault, he is the reprieve. And that is exactly why he is met with such visceral hatred. If President Trump were the evil that he is accused of being, Satan would not be leading his minions against him. If President Trump was an evil liar, Elijah Cummings, the do-nothing Democrat from Maryland, would not be feigning insult because President Trump spoke the unflattering truth about the den of iniquity Cummings represents.
