"CDD - Character Deficit Disorder
“Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people” Proverbs 14:34 (ESV)
Character Deficit Disorder or CDD for short is the illness that America suffers from. “America’s current moral decline is directly linked to the fact that we have elected, appointed and hired too many leaders who have no character.” John Mac Arthur, “Twelve Ordinary Men”
This hits the nail on the head and with our nation entering the season of electing a person who will be leading our nation, we must start doing some deep soul searching. We need to drop to our knees and ask God for His divine intervention.
We have seen our nation slip into a deep moral decline, one of which I have never seen in all my years on this earth.
Finger pointing to one person or group is not the solution, as I believe both political parties, the media, political correctness and sad to say, the churches in America must share the blame.
We the people have turned a blind eye to all the evils that have crept into our society and have allowed ourselves to be led astray because as a nation we have become lazy and complacent! We have become distracted by the tons of social media outlets that have taken our focus away from the real problem. The problem being us.
However now the time has come to take our country back and we can do so by electing the right people to lead us out of this downward spiral!
My challenge for us all is to investigate for ourselves the person’s history, their moral character and what it is that they truly believe and not what they say they have done or will do. Do not let the masters of spin dictate to you who is best, find out for yourself. We have at our finger tips technology that will give us the truth about those running for public office.
William Penn wisely stated, “If we are not governed by God, then we will be ruled by tyrants.”
Our nation must return to God!
I close with this beautiful Jewish prayer taken from their Daily Prayer Book
“May it be thy will, Lord our God and God of our fathers that we keep thy laws in this world and thus be worthy to live to see and share the happiness and blessings in the Messianic days and in the life of the world to come.”
May God have mercy on our nation!
