The Federal Government’s Cardinal Sin: Turning Its Back on the Lord God Jehovah

The United States has been a God-fearing and God-trusting nation for over four centuries. In fact, the federal government has had a strong Christian and Biblical foundation since it began in the late eighteenth century. As a result, prayer and trust in God have been the two major components used in the day to day operation of America’s faith-based government. Therefore, America has become the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world as a result of God’s blessings. However, at the beginning of the 21st century, America turned its back against the Lord God Jehovah and His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ. Ultimately, since America’s federal government rebelled against God, He has removed His Hand of Blessings from America. Of course, as a result, God’s Blessings have inevitably been replaced with God’s Curses, much like the ten plagues of ancient Egypt. Sadly, these curses have been seen in every aspect of Americanism.

Needless to say, America’s national government has been cursed from the halls of Congress to the White House. As a result, America’s elected leaders cannot make the proper decisions to solve the problems that America encounters on a regular basis. Of course, the reason for the disastrous decisions made by America’s leaders is the fact that they attempt to use political solutions for spiritual problems. For example, they base their decisions on secular humanism and its satanic solutions to man’s problems instead of bowing on their knees to a Holy and All-Powerful God, a God that has the solution to all man’s problems. Ultimately, this leads to confusion which in turn leads to their inability to make wise decisions that would benefit America. Instead, America’s governmental leaders have made decisions that have made America follow a course of action that is leading the greatest nation in the world down a road of destruction.

Four of these disastrous decisions made by America’s leaders have been the politically-correct support of homosexuality, abortion, and Islam. Homosexuality, a sexual relationship between two men and or two women, is clearly classified as a sin in the Bible, God’s Holy Word. In fact, God goes as far as to label it as an abomination to Him (Leviticus 18:22-25). But, yet, the United States government supports the homosexual agenda. Of course, this became evident when President Obama signed the Federal Hate Crime Bill into law on October 28, 2009. Basically, the Federal Hate Crime Law gives homosexuals and lesbians a protected status, which means that if a person violates their civil rights they will get more punishment than if they violated the rights of a Christian. As a result, it is obvious that some of the leaders of America have been turned over to a reprobate mind and have placed immorality above morality (Romans 1: 24-28). Therefore, God has and will continue to stay His blessings on America until the once godly nation returns to Him and quits supporting an immoral sexual alternative.

Abortion, the murder of innocent new born babies while in their mother’s womb, is blight on the legacy of the United States. It is amazing that the leaders of a nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian tenets could sell out to the demands of those who would assign death sentences to new born babies just for the convenience of their mothers and or their fathers. However, the supporters of abortion do not see a fetus as a human life. But, the Bible has a totally different viewpoint. In fact, it states that God knows the new born baby while in the mother’s womb (Psalms 139: 13-16). As a result, since God knows the fetus as a baby, He would consider the abortion of a fetus to be murder, just like anyone killed outside the womb. Therefore, God has and will continue to stay His blessings on America until the once godly nation returns to Him and quits murdering new born babies.

Islam, the anti-Christian religion whose god Allah demands retribution for the first time a person sins, is rapidly gaining support from America’s elected leaders, including President Obama who professes to be a Christian. In fact, the Islamic legalistic system of Sharia Law is gradually infiltrating America’s judicial court system. As a result, Islamic violators of constitutional law in the United States would find themselves being tried under Sharia Law. However, all people who live in America, regardless of their religion, should be tried and, if found guilty, punished by the American justice system. But, in an effort to be politically-correct at a time when those who are attempting to kill us worldwide are Islamic extremists, America’s leaders are attempting to promote Islam as a religion of peace, including President Obama who was under the influence of Islam for more years than Christianity. Unfortunately, he spends more time glorifying the anti-Christian religion of Islam than his current religion of Christianity. There is definitely something strange about this scenario. Therefore, God has and will continue to stay His blessings on America until the once godly nation returns to Him and stops worshipping idol gods (Exodus 20: 1-5).

The failure of the United States to support Israel, God’s chosen nation, as it has since it became a nation in 1948, is one of the greatest detrimental decisions made by America’s leaders. The Bible clearly states that any nation that blesses Israel will be blessed and any nation that turns its back on Israel will not be blessed (Genesis 12: 1-3). Therefore, the manner in which President Obama and some members of Congress treat Israel is definitely not a good sign that they support Israel. In fact, there is talk that the United Nations, without the veto of the United States, plans to divide Jerusalem up between Israel and the Palestinians within a few weeks. Needless to say, this action by America may bring even more curses on America. It also proves that America’s leaders have lost the ability to make sound political judgments, especially since they would not have a prayer to accomplish their objective if God was not in agreement with it. But, there is a distinct possibility that Israel would go to war over this travesty, if the United Nations and the United States do not reconsider their proposed plans. Of course, any nation or groups that would attack Israel should “Remember the Six-Day War,” which was a war where everyone knows God intervened on the side of Israel. Therefore, the United States should never give up its support for Israel, especially if it wants God’s blessings.

Ultimately, there are several situations that could be considered curses from God. First, the United States military is fighting in two major battle areas, Iraq and Afghanistan. As a result, thousands of military personnel have lost their lives and billions of dollars have been spent to maintain these two warring sites. Inevitably, these two war zones are causing a serious drain on the economy of the United States. Also, despite America’s technological expertise and military “know how,” the United States is still fighting the longest wars of its military history. But, unfortunately, a military victory is still not on the horizon. In fact, the United States has not won a war since World War II, since the United States was blessed by God with a victory.

Of course, what could be the rationale for the lack of military success for the greatest military in the world? Possibly, it is the failure of the U.S. government to recognize its source as the Lord God Jehovah. Also, it could be the U.S. government’s promotion and support of open homosexuality in the military. With the repeal of the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military, gays and lesbians will be given the opportunity to display their so-called sexual alternative lifestyle on military bases without any fear of reprisals. In fact, Clifford Stanley, undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, stated, “There will be zero tolerance for harassment, violence or discrimination of any kind.” (1) Needless to say, God will not bless a military that promotes homosexuality but, at the same time, prevented Rev. Franklin Graham from speaking at the Pentagon because he might mention the name of Jesus Christ in his speech.

Therefore, America may never win another war because of the sins of its leaders and their anti-Christian agendas. In fact, time will tell if the morale and readiness of America’s all-volunteer force can withstand the onslaught of homosexuals openly serving in the military. As stated by Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, an independent group that opposes homosexuals serving openly in the military, “History will hold accountable President Obama, members of the previous lame-duck Congress, and gay activists who misused the federal courts in order to impose policies that will undermine morale and readiness in the all-volunteer force.” (1) Believe me; God will hold them accountable, too. Of course, it might have benefited the United States military and the nation as a whole much more if America’s leaders had been working on a budget instead of waiting to the midnight hour. The support for homosexuals in the military over the needs of 98 percent of Americans is despicable.

Speaking of the economy, America’s economy is at low tide and the government could possibly default on its own debts soon. As is heard on a regular basis, America must raise the debt ceiling by the first of August or Americans who live off of government entitlement checks will not receive them. As a result, millions of senior citizens and military retirees will have to default on their debt, too. Of course, millions of Americans have already lost their homes and their jobs. Ultimately, this could definitely be a curse from God, since people get concerned over their finances much quicker that any other personal attack. In other words, it gets their attention. Also, it will get them back on their knees praying to the Lord God Jehovah for help in a serious time of financial need. Therefore, since America is on the verge of becoming a second-rate country economically, it is extremely urgent that all Americans and their leaders give up all their religious idols, return to their Christian roots, and serve the one and only true and living God. If not, America could become captive economically and otherwise to the very people that it defeated in World War II and are still attempting to defeat in wars around the world and possibly within the borders of the United States.

Finally, America’s public schools are barely surviving. They have booted Jesus Christ out while, at the same time, they have opened the door for confusion and chaos to replace Him. As a result, America’s public schools have lost their prominence in the world. Seemingly, too many students have lost the ability to learn, since too much time is spent trying to stay alive in an academic environment of fear and violence. Every imaginable sin that occurs regularly in the real world can regularly be seen in halls of America’s public schools, too. America’s student population no longer can feel sheltered from real world until they graduate. Now, students enter a war zone every day that they walk the halls of academia. They are likely to encounter rape, murder, bullying, robbery, drugs, homosexuality, Christian persecution, and any other sin or vice that their parents might face every day in the real world. In fact, many schools are permitting gays and lesbians to promote homosexuality in public-funded classrooms, but prevent Christians from talking about Jesus Christ. Therefore, when the government removed Jesus Christ with His love and protection from America’s public schools, God replaced it with hatred and danger which would automatically prevent many students from achieving their best academics when they are concerned about getting back home from school each day safely. Needless to say, since God has obviously cursed America’s public schools, they will probably never return to number one status unless the government and its leaders return to God as their source.

In conclusion, the United States has been blessed by God since the first settlers arrived in the early 1600s. Ultimately, when its government was established in the late 1780s, the Bible and Jesus Christ were the focal points used by the Founding Fathers. As a result, God put His stamp of approval on the United States. However, during the late 20th century and the early 21st century, America has begun to crumble from within. The problem has been the mindset of America’s leaders. They have rebelled against the godly heritage of the United States. In its place, they have accepted anti-Christian, secular humanistic ideology. They have replaced God’s guidance with man’s self-will. Of course, the end result of this new mindset of America’s leaders has been the passage of new laws that give the federal government more control over the lives of its citizens, while, at the same time, taking more money out of their pockets. In fact, socialism is on the verge of replacing capitalism in America. Also, economic decisions by America’s leaders have caused America as a nation and Americans in general to almost go bankrupt. Finally, when a government and its leaders turn their back on God, expect a worst case scenario.

Unfortunately, this is where America is today. America is a nation of many elected leaders who do not even believe and or accept the Constitution written by America’s Founding Fathers. In fact, it is obvious that many of America’s political leaders have never read the U.S. Constitution, just like they have not read the bills that they vote on to become laws that Americans must obey. Also, many of them would like to call a Constitutional Convention and rewrite the U.S. Constitution. It would be unimaginable to think what would be included in a new constitution written by men and women who do not fear God and who want more political power. Most likely, it would create a government that would be more tyrannical than most Americans could conceive. Therefore, as is obvious, godless leaders would create a godless nation; godly leaders would create a godly nation. Prayerfully, America will choose the latter before it is too late. But, in reality, America’s leaders have been pressured to condemn anything that is contained in the Bible as evidenced by their actions. Possibly, George Washington and the other Founding Fathers would be “rolling over in their graves” if they knew how America’s postmodern leaders were violating the godly principles that they inserted into the U.S. Constitution.

P.S. There are two scriptures that best depict why America is in the mess that it is in. They are Psalm 9: 17 and Proverbs 14: 34. Psalms 9: 17 reads, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Proverbs 14: 34 reads, “Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.” Therefore, the federal government must turn back to God and stop bowing down to the idol gods of man, such as immorality, greed, and tyranny, or expect America’s tailspin to continue.
