How Low Can You Go?


 

The question, “How Low Can You Go?” is a question I pose to America.

One only has to look at the headlines of any reputable newspaper or log on to the many different news sources online and we can see the very sad and pathetic situation our country is in.

Consider the following:

In this year alone, the Supreme Court ruled marriage was not only between a man and a woman but redefined it to include those of the same sex. Many churches from different denominational persuasions have gone along with this ruling and have begun to accept this as the norm. This was done so as not to offend.

Planned Parenthood is now embroiled in quite a scandal! The selling of baby body parts.  Those involved such as Stem Express jokes about shipping heads of babies to the research labs who purchase different body parts.   Ben Van Handel, Executive Director of Novogenix labs who works with Planned Parenthood regarding the harvesting of baby body parts said, “So you know there are times when the procedure is done that the heart is still beating.”  Yet, it is claimed by our government and others that a fetus is not a living being! Many of our politicians are actually praising the efforts of this organization!

Recent headlines described how babies’ faces were cut open in order to be able to remove the brain intact.

Then there is the scandal involving the cheating website, Ashley Madison, which encourages extra marital affairs. Many influential people in and out of our government were discovered to have been customers of this sight. Even those espousing faith and family values were caught up in the filth of this sight.

You have a spokesman for the popular fast food restaurant chain, Subway caught in a web of deceit, soliciting underage girls for sex as well as having a cache of child porn.

We have a presidential candidate who claims that the evil deeds of mankind can only be changed through legislation.  It seems she forgets that you cannot pass laws to enforce morality!

There are bans on school prayer, Bible clubs, the singing of Christian hymns and in some instances a ban on pledging allegiance to our flag.

The media praises a person like Bruce Jenner for wanting to become a woman, proclaiming him a hero with courage. I call it despicable!  Yet, are quick to demonize someone like a Tim Tebow for living out his faith in God openly.

America has become a cesspool of filth and perversion. A society without any moral compass and has lost its way! America is living in the same manner that the Romans were back in the day of Paul when he wrote.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[g] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. Romans 1:18-32 (ESV)

My heart aches for this country! I see a great mission field in this land, far greater than that which exists outside of our borders!

As Christians, we need to step out from our comfort zone and proclaim our only saving hope and return to our Bridegroom, Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! For if we don’t, surely God’s wrath will fall on this nation and we will become nothing but a byword!

How low are you willing to allow our country to go?

In Christ and to Him Belongs all honor glory!
