No matter the push back, we have to keep it simple and stick to truth. There is so much mess, so much corruption that muddies the water. When we break it all down, get rid of all the extraneous issues, the result is this: our leaders reflect the American people, and the American people as a whole are corrupt. We have abandoned our Creator, spit in His face, rebelled against His commandments, and have lost our way, unable to tell right from wrong. There are a minority of Americans whose eyes have not been blinded, but it can easily happen to any of us. Isaiah 5:20: "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" The word "woe" means things that cause sorrow or distress; troubles. There is much sorrow, distress and trouble in our nation from calling evil good and good evil.
Isaiah 59:14: "And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." We need to get back to absolute truths and stick to them. We have become so wishy washy in our morality. Our Creator outlined truth in His Word. If we all do what is right in our own eyes, then we have chaos and disorder. We need revival in this nation, getting back to the basics of life, common courtesy, respect, honor, integrity, decency, value for human life and the livelihood of others. True character is doing right even when no one is looking or we could get away with doing wrong.
Proverbs 6:16-19 says, "These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Look how many have to do with the livelihood of others? God HATES that! And pride is at the top of the list. We need to fall on our faces and repent if there is any hope for America. Our politicians cannot save this nation. We need to turn to God.
By the way, a great documentary on the values that our nation was founded upon is by Kirk Cameron and called, "Monumental." There is a monument in Massachusetts that has the "Reset to Default Settings" for our nation. Check it out - it's a great documentary, from one father who wanted to get answers for his children. It will open your eyes, as it did mine, to where we came from, with the instructions on how to get back there. Our founding fathers knew this could potentially happen, which is why they made this huge monument to show us the way back to our roots. http://kirkcameron.com/monumental/
This is a song I wrote about hating what God hates:
