Some of the Republican candidates running for president this year are more conservative or left of middle than others. They would each attempt to right a sinking ship called America and actually fix many problems our nation faces today–instead of making things worse. However, I don’t believe America deserves any of these fine individuals to be our leader. Americans, through our choice to elect Obama not once, but twice, have proven our unworthiness to have such valuable person in the White House. We don’t deserve a person who will actually fix problems rather than create them and most assuredly not a person who will place God’s laws above all else.
When we choose a person who deliberately wants to destroy us through negotiations with a terrorist country (Iran) while failing to secure the release of innocent lives being tortured in that country we deserve to suffer the consequences of such recklessness. If we elect a person who repeatedly champions immorality as is seen with his view on abortion or gay marriage while defending the actions of some to murder police officers but at the same time ignores the mass murdering of blacks (in Chicago, Baltimore and elsewhere)–we cannot expect peace. And when we support a person who makes unlawful executive actions and campaigns for the implementation of illegal legislation such as Obama Healthcare to control the people it becomes pretty clear to some why America is falling apart. These actions are only a breadcrumb of the damage that has been done and is being done by our current president.
For some of us who read the Bible, we know why this is going on. And we also know the One who will right the ship and have final say. While in the meantime, we also know “the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving.” (2Cor4:4a)
Admittedly, there isn’t much peace to be found–if any. But is there hope? Can any of this damage we have incurred at our nation’s expense be undone? Can there really be true individual or collective peace at all? Yes and the only way is if we repent. We each must each repent of our sins against God. God’s standard for what is perfect and good is different from ours. God is perfect and holy and cannot have sin (see good person test) in His presence. Have any of us been perfect? Are any of us without sin? If we are honest, the answer is clearly no. We have all broken His perfect, holy commands and deserve judgment.
But do you know where you are going after you die? If God’s coming judgment upon human kind is real, does this concern you? None of us are promised tomorrow. Why not take the complete good person test linked at my website, AreYouGood.us today?
