You might say, what do you mean in saying that America may be heading toward tyranny? Don’t you know that this is the freest country in the world? There’s no way tyranny could happen in America. Well, if you think tyranny can’t happen in America, think again.
Some people like to think they are, or can be, autonomous. In their minds it means to arrive at a place where they don’t need anything or anyone to make it in life. At least that is the goal many people think is possible to arrive at. The truth of the matter is, there has never been, neither will there ever be anyone who is autonomous except God. Because being autonomous also means that you are the author of your life. No human being can give himself life or give anyone life. There is only one author of life, and that is our Creator.
God has given us Ten Commandments to live by. These are not suggestions or options, they are Commandments “set in stone” if you will. These Ten Commandments hold the key to peaceful and right living for all of mankind, not just believers in Christ or Christianity as a whole. These are meant for the entire human race and, I repeat, they are not optional. We will be held accountable by them whether we believe in God or not. Everyone knows exactly when they are violating every one of these Commandments because their conscious, that “God compass” inside all of us tells us and keeps us in check so we can live rightly.
The nature of humankind is to conquer and take dominion, hence there is always a quest for control. We were created by God to do some pretty creative things with all that he gave us. Sadly, when sin entered the human chain, this changed everything. Sin triggered a whole different objective and focus when it came to acquiring power and having the upper hand in all things. This was clearly demonstrated in the very first homicide when Cain killed his innocent brother Abel in a jealous rage.
Going soft on sin is like shooting yourself in the foot because of its inevitable destruction. We can’t be soft on sin and still be free. Sin is enslavement. “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin…. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (John 8:34-36). We either choose to be a slave to sin or accept God’s freedom through Christ. No one is allowed to be on both sides at the same time.
In this editorial I want to touch on a very outrageously sensitive subject that is breaking my heart. It is the exploitation of innocent children for money, prostitution and all kinds of perverted sexual activities of deviants among us. What does it say about a society where these practices are on the rise by leaps and bounds?
Every generation has its difficult challenges. Right now, in America it is the General/Presidential election of November 3rd. Everything that has made America the most powerful and prosperous country in human history is on the balance. That is not hyperbole, it is fact.
The socialist agenda is in full force out in the open and isn’t even trying to hide what their aim is any longer, which is to destroy this country and remake it into their own image. They have believed the Marxist lie of creating a so-called “paradise”.
News around the country is beginning to report that Christians are waking up and mobilizing to fight for the soul of America. That is music to my ears!
Pastors, churches and para-church organizations are awakening to the reality of the precarious times we are living, and they are doing something about it.
In the riots in Portland, Oregon antifa rioters set a bonfire in front of the federal courthouse but they stepped to a new low. They decided to burn Bibles. I kid you not! They threw copies of the Bible in the fire. Does this surprise me? No, because I know they are not God-fearing people. Otherwise, they would not be hurting innocent people, destroying public and private property and carrying on in so many lawless ways. They have become emboldened because not even the laws of the land are being applied to them at the moment. They are not being held responsible for their disastrous and shameful behavior so they feel that they have arrived at a new level in their power grab and will be allowed to continue. They seriously think they are in control of the entire country.
Our world is definitely changing at a neck-break pace and we must stay very alert to not get sucked into this whirlwind that is taking our culture in the wrong direction. More and more, the perverted ideas that were clearly not socially acceptable in our country are rapidly and openly receiving abundant social acceptance. Make no mistake, we are definitely living life upside down and we were warned about these trends a long time ago. Isaiah 5:20-21 says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!”
Since I was a young girl, I have heard a mantra that the world is becoming more and more overpopulated, and that everyone should not plan on having a large family. We have been told to use contraceptives to avoid getting pregnant because the planet cannot withstand a growth in population. Then to top it off, in 1973, abortion was legalized in America and since then to now 62.1 million unborn children have been murdered in the mother’s womb. A mother’s womb is supposed to be the safest place for a baby; however, it has become the most dangerous place of execution for millions of them.
In 2019, Pew Research did a global survey asking if people could be moral without God. It is interesting that the answers vary according to the economic development, education and age of the individuals being surveyed.
