Expecting that “God bless America,” and asking Him for mercy – but without… (videos included)
This post is for those that profess to be Christian (as I do not expect this from the unsaved world).
Though well intended, a well-known ‘evangelical leader’ (Michael Brown) put this graphic on his Facebook page, along with his own preface which read, “The real way to make America great again!”
But what is this graphic missing? Is this graphic a portrait of today’s unbiblical Christendom?
The first sentence in this graphic is a good start, to individually recognize and confess our sins thru Christ. But this prayer on an individual and/or national level is missing an important Biblical response – which is REPENTANCE (which God grants to those whom He saves). As there is no individual salvation without repentance. Repentance is not ‘the cause’ of salvation, repentance is ‘because’ of salvation. Though an individual Christian must repent, but has our nation at-large repented for her national sins? The answer is of course not.
Therefore perhaps the second sentence in this graphic is an unreasonable request.
Our ungodly nation at-large has defiantly waved their fists at God. All the way to the highest levels of legislative jurisprudence, our nation has approved, committed, and legislated the following crimes and transgressions against God (including but not limited to).
We have legalized drugs (sorcery), and call it ‘medicinal,’ or ‘recreational.’
We have legalized unbiblical divorce, and call it an ‘irreconcilable difference.’
We have legalized heterosexual sex ‘sex before, or outside of marriage’ (fornication), and call it ‘shacking up,’ or ‘making love.’
We have legalized adultery, and call it ‘cheating,’ or ‘fooling around.’
We have legalized sodomy (anal sex), and call it ‘being gay.’
We have legalized homosexuality, and call it an ‘alternative lifestyle.’
We have legalized homosexual marriage, and call it ‘love.’
We have legalized abortion (murder), and call it ‘a choice.’
We have legalized taking the name of the Lord in vein (blasphemy), and call it a ‘freedom of speech.’
And the list goes on, and on, and on.
Therefore as a born-again Christian (a bond-slave to Christ), in faith, we must understand that America does not deserve Gods grace (getting what we don’t deserve), nor His mercy (not getting what we do deserve).
On the contrary, what America does deserve, is Gods Divine judgement, and Holy wrath, and nothing less (and yes it is coming).
As Bible scholar Paul Washer said, “With one hand God is motioning man to come to Him. With the other hand He is holding back His wrath. Soon He is going to drop both hands.”
Let not our patriotism become a form of idolatry. Let us not hypocritically, selfishly, nor sinfully demand that “God bless America!”
Moreover, let us never accept, congratulate, celebrate, nor acquiesce to the sins of those whom do commit the aforementioned sins.
And all the CHRISTians said? Amen!
As always – Ye must be born again. Christians love ‘biblically’ – repent – be salt and light – be holy – be sanctified – fear God – pray without ceasing – keep His commandments – walk circumspectly – believe in and trust Jesus – obey the Gospel – share the Gospel – preach the Gospel – contend for the faith, – hate the things that God hates, and love the things that God loves – fight the good fight – convince, rebuke, exhort – keep the faith, work-out your salvation, rejoice, and endure to the end!
