Due to some incredible events, currently in the news here in the States, I take a short  detour from our  series leading up to Father's Day to call your attention to this. It is a microcosm of what we, who are called prophets of doom by those who hate Biblical Christianity, have been warning about for years now.  In this short essay, which I humbly submit for your consideration,  may I ask you to compare the next several things in light of the Meaning of Life, which we have been discussing in the past 3 or 4 days? Thank you!

Let it be known, that this once great country of America is sinking in the quicksand of filth, degradation and depravity not seen in such a potent mixture since the slow burn of the Roman Empire 2000 years ago! What is happening to the very fabric of the United States make King Solomon's corrupt life appear like a walk in the park. We know better. We have been handed the Scriptures and the Oracles of God by those who founded this incredible experiment - and we let the devil take the wheel from Jesus.

Exhibit A- CANNIBALISM: Who would have thought this would be front and center on the pages of a so-called civilized society like ours? Yet it is! It is not just the more publicized case of the Haitian immigrant in Florida, who was shot to death on a highway by police (this past Memorial Day), after literally eating the face off another man, but incidents in Louisiana and Maryland with more reports coming in! Some have been voodoo influenced, others have involved just plain perversion, chemically enhanced illicit drugs and more.  All of them have been the result of no moral compass and no God.

EXHIBIT B - CELEBRITIES & GAY AGENDA - In the past 48 hours, beloved (by many millions of Americans) and what they assumed was a good Christian woman -  Carrie Underwood, shocked everyone in the pro-family arena, by announcing her full support for "gay marriage"! Even worse was the revelation that what authentic Christians thought was a wholesome (and former Baptist) young woman, has been been attending a "gay friendly" church in Nashville with her NHL hockey-playing husband! Her reasoning is just as biblically illiterate as all those leading politicians who say the same thing...."it's about equality" or "Jesus told us to love one another"....or "it's the (nowhere to be found in the Bible) Golden Rule!' 

Dallas preacher Haynes on Sunday
EXHIBIT C- CORRUPTION IN THE CHURCH - Then in further examples of the apostasy and falling away by false prophets in the christian church, some preacher in an African-American baptist mega-church - Frederick Haynes III, ripped his OWN church for supporting the Biblical definition of Marriage found in Genesis 2:24 and not the stance of the current president in support of some such union! A preacher! Then comes news last week that a US Navy chaplain, from the liberal Disciples of Christ denomination, performed a same-sex union INSIDE of a chapel, desecrating a house of God! If that were not enough, prosperity gospel preacher Creflo Dollar, was arrested in Georgia in an unfortunate domestic disturbance problem involving his 15 year old disobedient daughter.

EXHIBIT D - CENSORSHIP IN THE CLASSROOM - Against all tenets of the US Constitution and just plain common sense, the principal of NY Public School #90 - the Edna Cohen School - just banned the singing of "God bless the USA" from the kindergarten graduation ceremony, which the children had spent months practicing!  To make it worse, the school principal Greta Hawkins, replaced the song with a teenage romance song by Justin Bieber, after changing her story. She said that the words of the Lee Greenwood patriotic classic would offend other cultures, then said that the words of God Bless the USA were too adult for five year olds! What is obvious with these people and liberals is not just their dislike of American traditions and the Constitution, but their complete disrespect and foul hatred of Almighty God in Heaven! The incident has led parents and the few remaining patriotic politicians in New York State to speak out against cultural brain washing. This also follows quickly on the heels of a similar ban, on the same song, by another public school in Massachusetts earlier this year!

EXHIBIT E - CHAOS IN THE COUNTRY - Up is down. Right is wrong. Good is bad. Evil is good. Every man is doing what seems right in his own eyes (Judges 21:25b). We see the trend towards hedonism more and more. We see no spiritual leadership from well-known American pastors who should be calling the nation to a prophetic declaration of the need for prayer and repentance. Instead we see Dr. Charles Stanley's son, Andy, depart from the faith of his father and seemingly promote alternate family lifestyles in his multi-campus wealthy megachurches, so as not to offend anybody. He sees no problem offending God. We see another best selling pastor saying that we get to hear the Gospel too many times, while many people have not even heard it once. We see America's biggest celebrity pastor Joel Osteen proclaiming everybody is a Christian no matter what their belief system or conduct....and on and on.

America has gone wild. America has not only lost its collective mind, the country is in danger, real danger of losing its collective soul. It used to be that the prayers of the saints would uphold the country....and in some sense, this is happening in some parts of the country where the faithful still live in concentrated pockets. But in the major populated areas and in even some areas of the once solid Bible Belt,  America has gone wild for the god of this perishing world in their blind stupidity and abandoned the One True God in Heaven. As a result of all of this and more, one day, those of us who worship Holy God and know the fierce anger beating in His Chest, are afraid we are getting close to the point of no return.

The only solution - 
       “Come, let us return to the LORD;
for he has torn us, that he may heal us;
he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will raise us up,
that we may live before him.
Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.” (Hosea 6:1-3 ESV)
