Living in a Romans 1 World

What happens when we choose to let go of Yehoveh? I believe He chooses to let go of us. We are entering the world He warned us about in Romans 1.

My heart is still broken over the election results in our little corner of the world. Barely a Christian conservative won a seat (congrats to Ross Spano who did). Amendments stopping Obamacare and taxpayer-funded abortions were defeated. 

Our solid red county is now a deep shade of socialistic, socially-liberal blue. We don’t want responsibility, we expect handouts. We don’t want to live by the biblical laws of our Creator, we want grey and compromise and fit within today’s declining culture. 

And on a national level, traditional marriage went down in a blazing inferno in Maine, Maryland, Washington as those states now welcome, embrace, and celebrate the abnormality called “homosexual marriage.” If my heart is broken, I can only imagine how our Father must be feeling. 

I can only think of two reasons America is now at this tragic place of demise ...

1) We are now suffering the consequences of disobedience and unbelief

Romans 1:28-32 “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”

2) The prince of the air is running out of time

We are living in the age of deception and confusion, both orchestrated by the Enemy. We need look no further than the past election to see how very deceived and confused professing “evangelical Christians” were and are.

False teaching (heresy) is the new norm from far-too-many pulpits ... trading truth for the lie that “grace covers all sin,” allowing people to live carnal lives and supporting those things Yehoveh Himself calls an abomination. Satan is alive and well and wreaking great havoc in America’s churches. And the masses are buying his lies hook, line, and sinker.

My guess is ... both reasons are true. I believe He’s spoken. You’ve made your bed, now lie in it.  

Do not expect things to go well in this country. In fact, I would say the looming “fiscal cliff” will be mild in comparison to what awaits us ... but it will set off the unstoppable domino effect. Those who choose to keep their heads in the sand; give in to compromise; embrace political correctness; and pervert the Word of Yehoveh will pay a horrible, eternal price. 

Lest you think I exaggerate, read the book of Revelation (there is a promised blessing when we do) and then, turn to 2 Kings 6 beginning in verse 24 and read what resulted from one great famine, which will be mild in comparison to the famine -and depravity- which is coming.

One of the great things about America is the freedom to see history through the lens of our respective biblical or world view ... and differ. Agreeing to disagree, in a civil manner, seems to be a thing of the past with folks who share different viewpoints. Shalom.

Good posting Justin. Please keep G-d out of OUR Constitution.

Congratulations Justin ... you just won the argument. When a fundamentalist comes to the realization that they just might be mistaken but are unable come to terms with what that might mean ... they curl up like a armadillo just before it gets hit by a truck and say they will "pray" for you. I can only imagine what they are REALLY saying under their breath.

You are only 'second class citizens" in your own minds. The problem with so many "christians" is that you seem to believe you are being persecuted for your beliefs. No ... you are not. What you are being persecuted for is your inability to SHUT UP about your beliefs and the seeming fact that you think everyone should believe the exact same as you.

Regarding the line, "Agreeing to disagree, in a civil manner, seems to be a thing of the past with folks who share different viewpoints." This line strikes me as a general, unclear implication. Please respond to clarify explicitly and specifically so I may respond explicitly and specifically.
