by Gary Kelly Many preach John 3:16 but not Jesus said in the same breath through verse 21. Many are â€œpreachingâ€ 1 Timothy 2 since Election 2008, but not 2 Timothy 4. Has â€œpolitical correctnessâ€ deceived and seduced the majority of even Godâ€™s elect into not judging right from wrong, Godâ€™s righteousness from sin? (Matthew 24:24, Mark 13:22, Romans 8:33, Titus 1:1, Proverbs 14:12)
The Greatest Nation on earth wonâ€™t be turned around until the Holy Spirit is allowed to convince, convict, and reprove the world of sin (John 16:7-8, Titus 1). Citizens of the Kingdom of God must come to realize that the only way the Holy Spirit can do that is through the vessels led by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8). Not by politicians, not by government, not by public schools or â€œhigherâ€ education, not by preachers who do not preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, but by the citizens of the Kingdom of God. Americaâ€™s Founders realized and consistently warned that without Biblical moral virtue, America would cease to be that Nation based upon â€œthe Laws of Nature and of Natureâ€™s God.â€
Americaâ€™s Founders confronted EVERY issue, social, economic, and primarily personal, with the Biblical moral virtue that formed the basis for the boundaries they established in creating and designing the Republic. American â€œleadersâ€ today confront EVERY issue with secular â€œpolitical correctness.â€ Until â€œWe the peopleâ€ correct this, America will continue its moral, social decline and will result in relinquishing its standing as the leader of the free world. Then who will the oppressed turn to?
"Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house." Ezekiel 12:2
America is continuing to witness the breakdown of the family, the redefinition of marriage, and the promotion of abortion, all which violate "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." There is corruption at all corporate and government levels, indicating obvious moves away from personal and corporate responsibility, accountability, respect, commitment, self-discipline, self-motivation, and independence, into a reliance on a government that has proven it is incapable of meeting the needs of any current government-run program, including, and especially education.
Public schools and "higher" education institutions have purposely neglected to teach the American Christian Heritage in favor of a secular "politically correct" dogma of humanism and globalization over sovereignty.
James Madison: "The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities impressed with it."
President John Adams: â€œFrom the day of the Declaration . . .they [the American people] were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the laws of the Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledge as the rules of their conduct."
Conservatives stop at the fact that America's Founders established our Republican form of limited government upon laws and boundaries while they forget that the underlying reason was derived from the Biblical moral virtue of America's Founders.
Christians and conservatives must begin to confront any and all violations of God's Law by demanding by what other foundation, if not God's Law, do secular liberals employ to justify sin. It is imperative that we ask those who are politically correct to justify, clarify, and provide an answer as to exactly what basis, what foundation do they employ for establishing boundaries, if any, when â€œRightsâ€ are to be â€œentitledâ€ or taken away?
That "time" is here. Until the foundation of Biblical moral value once again permeates the land, the decline into liberal secularism where government replaces God will continue to erode America's very existence. Election 2008 will determine much, however, American citizens who are also citizens of the Kingdom of God will determine much more.
â€œWe the peopleâ€ of this One Nation Under God must repent of our complacency which has resulted in a Godless decline of cultural and moral decadence, where the Americaâ€™s foundation of â€œthe Laws of Nature and of Natureâ€™s Godâ€ has been shunned and replaced by secular political correctness. Citizens of the Kingdom of God must return to both preaching the Kingdom of God, as well as "reproving the world of sin."
