Posted on 06/30/2012 9:15:59 AM PDT by vpintheak
I don't do vanities, but I guess I do now. My wife and I were talking last night, I was complaining and she said no nation that has embraced homosexuality has stood long. This got me to thinking and meditating on His word.
Over the years, we all must admit, socialism of all stripes has taken hold of our Country. Things are getting worse. Why? We have taken God out of our daily lives. This homosexual in the military is simply one of the last strikes against God and He is removing His favor from us. All the natural disasters, the inane court rulings, the crime and blatant evil around us is a result of turning away from God.
We must Repent and pray for this nation. If we do not do that, this nation will not stand long. Possibly it will end in our lifetime, but for sure our children's. Repent and pray! That is the only way this nation will get turned around. Certainly not through politicians. God bless thru Christ Jesus, FReepers!
I was just thinking about the horrendous storms pounding DC now, in light of the week we just witnessed there.
God doesn’t save the collective. God saves the individual souls.
I agree completely. I have known this for quite some time and it all boils down to idolatry. We raise up idols in the form of objects, celebrities, sports teams and they all take precedence over God. How many people skip church because they need to be at the game by 1 pm? Or they have a conflicting tee time? How many know that homosexuality is bad, but are swayed by a celebrity? We have so many golden idols that we’re blinded by them. We even fill our churches with them. We make a large donation to buy a piano and we expect to have a plaque placed in a prominent place dedicating it our dead grandma, but everyone know where the money came from, right?
Israel worshipped idols and God punished them for it over and over again. We certainly aren’t any better than they were, and we don’t deserve any more second chances than they deserved.
>>God doesnt save the collective. God saves the individual souls.
But He does punish the collective. Your soul is saved individually, but He can make your time on Earth very bad by just removing His protection over the nation. Remember who rules this world and who protects you from him. Obama is obeying his master, but too mamy of us only obey ours for a hour a week.
Try over a million babies a year. About 50 million since Roe was invented.
The drought of good, sound Biblical preaching in our churches is one of the signs of a nation under God’s judgement...and that has been true for a long time.
When the church of God is strong the nation is strong.
When the church of God is weak and compromising the nation suffers.
I disagree. God was instrumental and front and center before we became a nation. The Constitution was not ratified until Ben Franklin stood up a reminded people of His role in this Country. God saved America fromEnglish rule. Even those who fought for the crown.
When the people of a nation draw near to God there is freedom, when the people of a nation fall away from God there is Tyrany.
God is punishing the good because some are bad?
What a load of crap.
Maybe I’ve missed something along the way - Could you show me one example of the people voting for homosexuality? I’ve seen fiat decisions by representatives and plenty by the courts, as well as executive declarations, but the people, when asked, have uniformly rejected homosexuality time and time again.
Why do people who write things like this always use the word "we"? We have taken God out of our daily lives? Oh really?
What you really mean is "they," so use that word. Don't ask me to take on the guilt of others. And don't you dare you suggest that God is going to punish the faithful for the sins of a minority.
By the way, if you think this country is faithless, you haven't traveled much. We're one of the last bastions of faith in the world, and God isn't through with us yet. To suggest otherwise is truly being faithless.
I couldn't help but think the same thing. Since our founding, God has watched over this nation with special care and attention. And I know that this week, we were a bitter disappointment to Him. I pray that we can be restored to His favor.
There’s nothing I can do to change how he feels about America. I know that I’ll be OK no matter what suffering is imposed on America or myself personally.
You must be very proud.
Red Herring. Not the issue. We are talking about graces to the living.
First, there is no good except from God. Second, these trials, as much as I hate them, are required to increase our reliance on Him. I urge you to dust off your Bible if you have one and begin to read.
Your title is about God “removing His favor”. I suppose another way of saying it is that He has given up the country to depravity (homo). Regardless of the votes of the people, the homo-promo agenda is advancing full steam due to courts, etc.
