The tide is changing! We can feel it and now we can read it. As America runs from God, her new found pride over rejecting God is getting bolder and louder as she seems no longer embarrassed by her arrogance or interested in hiding it from God’s people… or from God!
America, Rejecting God Showing Godless Mindset
A recent article in the Los Angeles Times and Yahoo News is headlined, “Why America’s Record Godlessness is Good News for the Nation.”
In part it reads, “The secularization of U.S. society—the waning of religious faith, practice and affiliation—is continuing at a dramatic and historically unprecedented pace. While many may consider such a development as a cause for concern, such a worry is not warranted. This increasing godlessness in America is actually a good thing, to be welcomed and embraced.”
Are you serious?
As recently as 1976, nearly 40% of Americans said they believed that the Bible was the actual word of God—to be taken literally. Today, only about 20% of Americans believe that. More believe the Bible is a collection of fables, history and tales written by men.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) recently proclaimed that God’s will was of no concern to this Congress. First, the liberals kicked God out of the Pledge of Allegiance and then out of their Democrat National Conventions since 2012. Until recently, they did not make an effort to force the rest of the nation to also abandon God.
Secularization has consequences. Check out nations that have experimented with it: Japan, Scandinavia, Australia, the U.K. and Eastern Europe. How is society functioning in Godless Cuba, Venezuela, China and Russia?
Once God is gone, repression follows.
The article heralding America’s new Godlessness said that now society can embrace abortion, socialized medicine, euthanasia, and gun control.
It reads, “The organic secularization we are experiencing in the United States is a progressive force for good, one that is associated with improved human rights, more protections for planet Earth, and an increased socio-cultural propensity to make this life as fair and just as we can—in the here and now—rather than in a heavenly reward that fewer and fewer of us believe in.”
Does this not foreshadow the words of Luke 18:8: When Christ returns, will He find any of faith?
Government Becomes God
For one hundred years, there has been an effort to make the government god. Starting in 2020, a new and unforeseen element was added that furthered that agenda—fear. Fear of a pandemic.
It became the perfect storm.
Author and blogger Jonathan Brentner writes, “The combination of fear and the great deception of our time, have made vast numbers of people willing to submit to the government, which they now regard as the protector of their health. As a result, they have willingly given up many of their rights and freedoms for the sake of remaining healthy, a trend sure to continue.
“And very few pastors stand up against the restriction regarding the freedom of religion imposed on them by socialist governors.”
Given Over To A Reprobate Mind
Four of the most terrifying words in the Bible are “God gave them over.” (Romans 1:24-28) Because man rejected God, He gave them over to a reprobate mind. We find the same principle in 2 Thessalonians 2, but this time in terms of end-time man’s delusional beliefs. To those who reject God’s truth, He will send them a powerful spirit of delusion allowing them to misjudge what’s actually occurring in the last days. They will believe that what is false is actually true. We are seeing this more and more in our generation!
The Stage is Being Set
Just 50-100 years ago, our churches were filled on Sundays. Even though the Mainline Protestants were in decline, still faithful Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Methodists joyfully sang hymns. The evangelical church was exploding in reaction to the liberalism that had invaded the church.
The thought of a prominent U.S. Congressman stating that our government was not concerned with God’s will was unthinkable!
But 50-100 years ago we were not so late in the game! The shadow of the Tribulation hadn’t yet arrived. Few were even thinking about Antichrist and his looming empire, much less knowingly or unknowingly heralding his coming. Now he is on the horizon. So are the Four Horsemen.
Evil is on its way but so is the Rapture of the Church.
That’s the good news in the midst of this sad story about America.
Jesus is coming soon whether the church today talks about it or not. Jesus is coming whether the godless culture believes it or not. They didn’t believe God would judge the world in Noah’s day either!
Nothing can stop the spiraling events leading the world into God’s great Day of Wrath just as nothing can stop the soon return of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. It is imminent. Any minute.
