Nation of wickedness

1/22/2014

My heart is in continual grieving and mourning over what America has become: full of sexual immorality of all kinds, which the Bible in Romans 1 clearly teaches is the result of godlessness. We have a culture with no fear or respect for God.

Surely it’s time for those who profess Christ to change their ways to seek God’s remedy for wickedness, which is to go into grieving and mourning over sin. “Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom” (James 4:9).

Look at the following statistics to see how fast we are going down the road of Sodom and Gomorrah — totally consumed by sexual immorality, which is just the evidence of how godless we now are in America.

The number of searches for the terms “Porn,” “XXX,” and “sex,” according to Google Analytics:

• (2008) — 70 million hits per month

• (2011) — 68 million hits per day

• (2013) — 84 million hits per hour  

Porn is the sin of lust. Jesus said clearly those who lust will go to an eternal hell. Read Mathew 5:28/29. (Experts in porn say many in the pews use porn.)

In 2008, the percent of all births to unmarried women was 40.8 percent. (Sex outside = marriage is the sin of fornication. Note the following is just the pregnancies of fornication; one can only imagine how much fornication is committed that does not result in pregnancy.)

Births to single mothers in 1950 were at 142,000. In 2008, it had risen to 1,727,000 — a 1,216-percent increase    

We now live in a culture where Christians literally are being forced by law to be servants of sodomite weddings. If they refuse, they will be severely punished. Our Sodomite rulers now are telling Christians when and where they can pray and use the name of Jesus. Middle schools have replaced posters of the 10 commandments with posters that teach them how to do homosexual sex. Children and youth are using phones for sex.    

The only hope is a great spiritual awakening in America. For that to have any possibility means that Christians and the Church need to change their laughter and joy that all is well, and fall on their knees in deep grief, mourning and repentance for our sins and our refusal to purify our hearts of its double-mindedness, which accommodates and participates in the values and ways of this wicked world. The participating and wanting ways of this world is why professing Christians remain silent and have become numb to sin.

Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded (James 4:8b).

The Lord laid this on my heart to make this challenge to professing Christians. Instead of Super Bowl parties and watching the big game, have prayer meetings, read the scriptures to remind us of God’s unchanging truth about sexual immorality while grieving, mourning, repenting for the sexual immorality and godlessness of America. If you have no one to pray with and study with, do it on your own. What kind of a world have we allowed for our children and grandchildren to grow up in? Our sodomite rulers have no respect for Christians and will not be kind to Christians in the future.  

For anyone stuck in the sin of sexual immorality of any kind, Jesus died on a cross to offer forgiveness and grace for anyone who will seriously repent and commit with all their heart to love God and defeat sexual sin and all other sins. God loves you and understands the battle will not be easy as sexual addictions are extremely powerful, but with God’s help and one’s determination to not give up, it can be done and is being done by many.
