So as always, I was listening to Moody Radio on the way to work the other morning, and I heard a guest say something along the lines of "….I’m proud to be an American, but I’m a Christian first.” The guy was doing a back and forth with Dinesh D’Souza and I have to say, except for that one line, I didn’t agree with much of anything he had to say. But the theme of that comment made a lot of sense to me, and got me to thinking.
As my readers know, I am a Christian; a follower of Christ, or whatever other term one might care to use to define that faith. That is and always will be first and foremost in my life. I am also a very proud American; I believe in what this nation stands for, the vision of the founders, what they modeled it on, and why it has lasted as long as it has.
Sadly, I also believe that we as a nation are on the way out for a lot of reasons, the most important of which is that we have lost sight of our heritage, and have completely changed direction and lost our moral compass. I might add, we in America have by no means cornered the market on this.
In case you haven’t noticed lately:
•Whether one looks to the constant and mounting crisis in the mid-east.
•The impending crash of the US Dollar and global economy.
•The moral decay and increased sexual depravity on every level of society.
•The savagery of the MB and their spawn ISIS beheading, raping, and otherwise destroying Christians and Jews.
•The threat of nuclear proliferation and massive military build-up by the likes of No. Korea, China, and Russia.
•The situation in Ferguson, MO, and so much more, the world is a massive, chaotic, man-made mess.
Those last three words, "man-made mess” are the most important so far to my main point which I’ll discuss below. Mankind excels at only one thing really, and that is making a colossal mess of things. Mankind is also very, very bad at fixing things. We suck at it in fact.
Look at the history of mankind for a minute to see what we’ve done with creation. Sure, there have been some good moments, some positive achievements, and advances in science and culture. However the over-all legacy of mankind is one of destruction and corruption.
In America, against all evidence to the contrary, a lot of people have come believe that all we have to do is get the ‘right’ people in office and everything will somehow be all honky dory. This is especially so of the upcoming elections. With few exceptions, all I’m hearing from my fellow conservatives is that the Republicans must take back the Senate in November, and of course maintain the House. My questions lately are and have been….why? What difference will it make?Add a comment
