Greetings My Friends;
If you look around, it is very easy to feel less than positive about the whole
World. If you are like most people the news is downright depressing. It
seems that as things get worse, so do people.
You hear about killings on the street, and people say "how could God allow
that"? Terrorists blow up a bus, and people ask about where is God?
As all of this is going on, did you ever hear someone say "how does the
devil, come up with such carnage, or why did satan do that? No matter how
disgusting something gets, no one blames satan. If people get sick, get
cancer, have an accident, they blame God not satan.
People complain that with God, there is no freedom of choice. It seems to
me, the very people that are doing all of these dreadful things, are in fact
exercising their freedom of choice. God would not be God if he didn't allow
you to make a choice.
Some people eventually come to realize they need God, and they make that
choice. God is waiting for them, but He forces no one. Back to the question,
where is God? Let's take an honest look at that.
This country was founded on biblical principles. Our government
recognized the need for God in running the country and making laws. For
100 years or so we followed that idea. This country was blessed.
I am picking the year 1950 as a starting point of a real slide in America.
People started slipping away from God and the Bible. A little at first but it
just kept growing. Whether we were getting too sophisticated for God, or
started replacing Him with stuff, or a combination of things, it started.
We somehow followed a new God. That God was called political correctness. Along came abortion, homosexual marriage, God taken out of
government and its buildings, out of schools, and the list goes on. People
that say they don't believe in God go out of their way to remove Him from
sight. If they don't believe, why do they care?
It seems people spend plenty of time reading the Bible to see whatever
angers God the most, and then passing a law to violate the Bible. Add to
this the fact that God is absent from most homes, because traditional
values are no longer there.
Where is God? Our laws, political correctness and people under the
influence of satan, took Him entirely out of their lives. Since God allows
free will and does not impose Himself on anyone He must stay out of it.
Praise the Lord for his grace and mercy for those who love Him,
God BlessYou And Remember
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised
from the dead. I receive your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past.
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new
birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus.
