History has shown us (although no one wants to look) that great nations have fallen throughout the ages as they become evil and lose all sense of morality. Aside from giving us His Son who then gave Himself that we might gain eternal life, perhaps the greatest gift God has given man is this great nation that we are now so fortunate to live in. But, as in times past, we have bungled it.
The Puritan Pilgrims set up their first colony here in 1620 I believe (or there about). Although the Lord's church had virtually disappeared from the earth, or at least from public view, biblical morality remained quite strong in many religious groups. And now, in less than 400 years, the Lord's church has been restored and is swiftly slipping back into obscurity along with religion in general and morality in general.
I know that I become very pessimistic at times and people will say, "Don't worry, the Lord's church will survive and his people will be victorious!" It bugs me when they tell me that. I know that the statement is true, but that has no reference whatsoever to the masses. It has only reference to the tiny minority who remain faithful unto death. And that minority is growing smaller and smaller and smaller.
When election time comes around, we will vote for ANYONE so long as he is a member of our party preference, or if he is handsome, or anything else we may like about him, but we will pay no attention whatsoever to how he stands on murdering unborn babies. Or if he is opposed to our freedom of religion, or if he thinks homosexuals should have preferential treatment, or if our borders ought to be wide open to illegal aliens, ignores states who refuse to enforce our immigration laws, and on and on. Morality has no influence upon our choice of politicians. Our courts are run amok, our lawmakers are turned into lawbreakers.
Faithful congregations of the Lord's people are disappearing daily into liberalism, modernism, unconcernedism, entertainmentism...anything but truth and accepting the authority of God. Brethren, we need to stop saying, everything is going to be alright! It is not alright now and it is getting worse! I pray daily that God will grant me the wisdom to know what to say and when and where to say it, to help stem this avalanche of apostasy. And I thank Him daily that he allowed me to be born in 1930. My tour is drawing to a close and perhaps I will not have to witness the things which are coming to this nation and the Lord's Kingdom.
