How easy it is to cast blame.

Our nation appears to be in free fall, we see little hope of recovery so we look for someone to blame. The Democrats blame the Republicans the Republicans blame the Democrats. We have our hopes on the next election, vote this one in, vote that one out.

We see abortions topping sixty million and look to the government for help. Homosexuals are accepted in the military we shake our heads in disbelief. In state after state same sex marriages are legalized. What can we do? We sit by and watch in horror as our freedoms are slowly eroding and wonder: How could this have happened?

Turn on ‘christian’television and learn how Jesus and His disciples were rich, how God wants you to be rich and happy. Visit your local bookstore and read how you can have your best life ever, or how to help yourself be more successful in your everyday life. Want to relax and be invigorated - try ‘christian’yoga.

The problems we are facing in America are not the result of the wrong administration. They are not the result of voting Democratic and not Republican or Republican and not Democratic. The problems we face will not be solved with new legislation or a different president.

Time and time again, throughout history God warned us yet we continued to be disobedient, to reject His truth.

And now:

“.. God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the degrading of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator…” Romans 1

“Now is the time for us to humble ourselves; to stop putting our faith in government, in education, in democracy, in capitalism, in the economy, in our retirement plans, and turn to the one who is LORD of all… The LORD Jesus Christ. Let us earnestly, sincerely, and humbly get on our knees, repent and turn, and beg for God’s mercy – to give us the leaders that we need and not the ones we deserve.”
