I had forgotten why I discontinued watching television about 2 years ago until yesterday when I glanced at some news while I was out running errands. It is so discouraging and depressing not to mention embarrassing to see what we as a society have come to tolerate to accept and sacrifice ethically morally and spiritually. It’s clear that as a whole this country is so confused about its own identity and yet the numbers of people seeking the truth or seeking out the manual for a living (the Holy Bible) decreases all the time according to statistics.
I don’t know how you operate but in my world if something isn’t working and I can’t fix it I usually as a last resort at least go to the manual. Sure I should have done it at first but I’m not like that so I don’t. So occasionally I’ll spend a lot of wasted effort on things I could have save time on by going directly to the manual. So we have clearly failed in what we have tried to accomplish in this world in this United States of America yet we refuse to go to the manual. The only reason I can think of is selfishness not wanting accountability and a spiritual battle that has taking this country by the throat and threatened with a sword of our enemy to back off from goodness and righteousness.
So no matter what you have subscribed to in the past and no matter what you grew up with if your life is not going well and you see around you what I see- maybe its time we look at the manual and see what it says. To my knowledge to this day not one single word has ever been found to return void.
And by the way I didn’t write it so please don’t shoot the messenger! The bottom line is that nobody’s ever disproved the bible and every single word in that is a promise that it will never come back void- yet so many are afraid to touch or open it. I think that is evidence of itself that we all know the truth deep down inside. If my neighbor hung Superman signs all over his house and in his yard put up Superman posts it wouldn’t bother me a bit I realize who Superman is and what Superman is not. If my neighbor put up crosses and pictures of Christ all over his house and yard and it irritated me that would raise some questions because if I really knew it was no existing being or no God of the universe or no Jesus Christ of Nazareth exists, it wouldn’t affect me just like Superman wouldn’t. Give that some thought for a minute. Why do some get that irritated feeling in their gut at the name of JESUS? Does this make you angry- JESUS! JESUS! JESUS!
If so, why?
People spending millions of dollars to take down a cross or hide bibles in school classes just so they don’t have to hear or see about Jesus Christ? They have become more tolerant of cults that support things like raping children, sharia law and chopping off arms and vaginal mutilation for young girls. Makes no sense does it?
I mean how would you look at me if I made the news for spending millions and protesting in the streets how offended I am by my neighbors Superman gear? You would think I should be locked up somewhere, right? LOL!
Its like a 3rd grader plugging his ears when he doesn’t want to hear the answer the way he wanted the adult to say it. Its very sad and sometimes I’m ashamed and embarrassed for our own kind. Its sad as we should be leading the way in sharing good news and hope with people.
We act like the stubborn husband who refuses to ask directions, all the while his wife is holding a road map in one hand and a GPS in another. In this case God is holding out His Word, in His hands to us..
No matter what the reason we have gotten off track-God made us a blessed country by surrendering and submitting to His name. Now we have withdrawn from doing this corporately, and we see the handiwork of our own decisions.
My question is why is everyone refusing to test it out? Maybe its time we ” rebelled ” against the world system we now are stuck in of hatred, violence, and the removal ( in our hearts) of surrendering as one nation under GOD?
I think its worth a shot!
