A godless nation: Doomed to fail (Mychal Massie says U.S. trusts handouts of man over hand of God)

The truth is a hard thing to hear and even a more bitter pill to swallow. But until we face the truth, we are doomed to sink lower into the abyss as a society. The truth is that a godless nation is a nation doomed to fall.

We as a nation have slowly accepted and pompously come to believe that wisdom begins and stems from us. Secularism is the view that all things religious should be excluded from daily public living, specifically pertaining to political and social concerns.

Thanks to secularism, the mindset today is that God and religious opinion should be relegated to a church on Sunday morning. Courts have ruled with increasing frequency that, depending on the circumstances, religion has no place in the home.

The created have determined they are above the Creator. Dennis Fisher writes: “Every age has its own thoughts, ideas, and values that influence the culture, ‘the spirit of the age.’ It is the kind of growing consensus that morally lulls us to sleep, gradually causing us to accept society’s latest values. This is the world’s peer pressure – a satanically inspired system of values and ideas that cultivates a lifestyle that is independent of God.” (“The Spirit of the Age,”, Dec. 3, 2012)

In my column “No foundations, no future,” I wrote, “I defer to Thomas Jefferson – governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” (, July 22, 2003)

An expanded understanding of Jefferson’s words is that government reflects the mores of society. We have become a humanist society, and our government reflects same.

We blame Obama’s re-election on fraud and people who want something for nothing – but we overlook and reject the truth that we are responsible for creating the

From the article: We blame Obama’s re-election on fraud and people who want something for nothing – but we overlook and reject the truth that we are responsible for creating the environment, going back perhaps a century or more, that would allow for his kind to achieve positive notoriety. We have become tolerant of every form of debauchery and corruption because humanism and secularism have replaced righteousness and accountability...The government today has become a poisonous filaria, and we are the mammals from which it is deriving its sustenance. Many are ashamed to stand up publicly for the truth of Scripture. Venerable Christian groups that for decades stood rooted and grounded on the Word of God are today preaching a message of capitulation to sin and debauchery. Church leaders are preaching damnable messages that are leading people astray. We witness people nodding their heads in approval while godless vagabonds misquote the Scriptures. Our hope is no longer based on the hand of God but on the handouts and promises of man.

Pegged it.

Just a convenient excuse to blame God and the world. Read near the bottom, his Father committed suicide last year. He was clinically depressed and that was going to deny him a position as a second lieutenant. The young man has lost his way and most likely long before he went to the academy, it however was deep below the surface. More insightful revelations could probably be found if we can learn about his family history and why his father took his own life. No doubt others face similar problems, otherwise we wouldn’t have such a sorry state in every institution that we hold dear.
