    Why is America Turning From God

    Is our culture turning from God? Satan is deadly serious about getting the children, and he gets most from the secular public schools. An excellent example of how can seen in the fascinating film God’s Not Dead starring Kevin Sorbo (played Hercules) as the atheist professor who demands his students write down God is dead! Cuts from the film include; the universe created itself; belief in God is a primitive superstition…

    My words feel empty here & God is telling me to move on in what He has lined up for me. That only happens if I listen & move forward, not backwards.

    So, that being said, I don’t see the point in posting here any more. I’ll still visit to see what is being talked about…but God has a BIGGER PICTURE He has shared with me, through His Word…and actually others that have tested/confronted & made me look even deeper into God’s Word, and I thank them for that (God will use those of Him & against Him for His purposes).

    Time to downsize and get back on track.

    God Bless

    The problem is, in who surrounds them, what surrounds them, what they watch, read, see…& many churches water down their calling to NOT be of this world.

    The sad truth is, we hurt them by NOT preparing them for a real world value that surrounds them, day in & day out.

    It’s why an institution of MURDER can be celebrated as a source for good…& yet, their actions are now even linked to cancers (cells that are produced in our bodies that may have one purpose, but through abortions send those cells of life, in to cells to deliver death).

    One of the biggest awakenings, as of the past 50 years, was the HIPPIE GENERATION. The generation that produced ‘free love’, drugs & psychedelic music…also produced some of the most God given & driven ministers, that sat down with ‘potheads’, ‘prostitutes’, etc. remember, the Bible shares, “And such WERE some of you.”

    My goal now is the next generation. The one looking for guidance & answers, not ‘perfection’…TRUTH. And quite frankly, we are so far away from that, chances are there is 50/50 you go to a church that aids ignorance, immoralities & division, let alone deception from the pulpit.

    But a REVIVAL takes a HEART ATTACK, in order to see how dead we are in Christ. And it’s in individuals, not a collective.

    As INDIVIDUALS we have to look at what surrounds us, who surrounds us & what we do with the God given talents to share Him in ACTIONS & words. They have to match.

    (Cont with questions)
    If I lead a life that wants murderers,rapists,molesters,pedophiles,kidnappers & terrorists, convicted, put to death…as well as those in the value a rapist would be put to death, but was innocent, & the women, by lying. called for the EQUAL JUSTICE for her actions & lies, to be put to death instead. How do I profit in a world that caters to those values?

    I know that Jesus sat down with those that wanted nothing to do with Him…yet He did. I know that those that follow Christ are far from perfect & I know that all will be given the opportunity to come to Christ…but many will have voices that push them from Christ, through the words yelled back at them, the actions of hate or worse, & associate those of ‘Christ’…If I have done that to you, let me apologize. I hope you know I hold no hate nor want no harm to you or anyone…but many here really are NOT sharing that. And when I started off, years ago, that was me. I have learned, by those around me,testing me,listening,watching & asking quietly, “Is there more?”

    I am only in control of one soul, mine…& I can either ‘conform’ or be ‘transformed’ (Romans 12). I choose transformed, and that many many things in my life I have to get rid of. And its a path were slowly many things are shown, in my life, holding me back or wrong in my life, even that I don’t need (downsizing).

    I think, if we were neighbors, we’d be playing chess…& I think we are, in some ways. I wish you well.
    God Bless

    @roscoe569,
    Well you did a pretty good job fooling me you actually were reading the Bible, understanding the timeline, how all lived during those days, but by you past comments, your either very ignorant in what I clearly have talked about what a ‘slave’ was back then…& you compare it the the value of the movie ‘Roots’.

    So, taking me out of content or context may work on someone that hasn’t had ‘testing’ over the years by those that want nothing to do with God, but it doesn’t effect me, one way or the other.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t your son a Christian? I though you said something about him asking you to go to his church or read the Bible, but either way, let me ask you a few questions, & please answer honestly. Do you think, in any way I want harm to come to you? Do I have anything to gain by trying to explain the time line, the reality of life back in those days, you seem to want to compare with to today’s average day. Tell me, if I believe there is more after this world, & you don’t, the value I hold to wants no harm, murder, rape, molestation, pedophilia, kidnappers or terrorists…but the value of atheism you value believes there is nothing more, & wrapped in that are those values. If all there is, is ‘worm food’ after death, & I led a life of helping, wanting generations safer from sexual diseases that only happen in those who have sex before marriage, homosexuality or perversion even worse with animals. Why are you so concerned?

    Sadly, this ‘card’ works, because we don’t allow legal citizenship to come here in just ONE way. ASSIMILATION NOT IMMIGRATION.
    The difference is like NIGHT & DAY. The difference between the foundation value of America & Europe, referred to as the difference of HEAVEN & HELL.

    This gets us away from EQUAL JUSTICE…& replaces that equality with PC, which really isn’t ‘Political Correctness’, but PICK & CHOOSE justice, under the banner of ‘Social Justice’.

    This leads to ‘leadership’ the value of ‘Honorary De-greed’ Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson (for what he is, all you have to do is look at his son, a thief, liar & politician in jail collecting disability & pension from us, because he hid in order for time to pass to get his pension, then go to jail)

    I feel for this man, but he lied…& in doing so he put his ‘bride’ & family in harms way, over ethics, morality & just plain commonsense?…And now, this is racist? This is the tipping point getting IMMIGRATION out, & ASSIMILATION in.

    The easiest, yet hardest way to get America back on a track to commonsense, is to institute, state to state, full enforcement of CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. Until we stop negotiating with crimes & criminals, perversion & worse will increase, as well as ignorance & those coming here of that same value & stand.

    Murderers, rapists, molesters, pedophiles, kidnappers & terrorists should be put to death, the day of conviction…but those that lie, bear false witness or aid them, should also.

    Remember, I’m addressing CHRISTIANS, that it! WE have to wake up, stand and those who get in our path, to deceive, misrepresent or try and confuse us, praise God for that! Satan aint happy!

    “By His stripes we are healed”…The Apostles finally got it, and it lead to being beaten, stoned, hated, reported on, tested, taunted, mocked and their deaths. Right now, MILLIONS of Muslims that have come to know Christ, have been beheaded, raped, beaten, stoned, buried alive, crucified…and still they are growing daily through the power of Christ & His forgiveness.

    I’ve said it before, a revival is coming…and God lets us know everyone will be given the opportunity to come to Him, confess their sins, repent (turn away from those sins) and be forgiven. Some have been given that just here…others will have no way of any Christian to come to them…but Christ will find a way to give them that sliver of hope.

    Honestly, most won’t, and I wish them well, no harm & a long life…but that is all I have to offer them.

    If you find you go to an apostate church, It’s time to move on.

    God Bless

    I keep hearing this in my heart, “What one generation tolerates, the next embraces”….& that is where we are at, in most churches embracing and coexisting.

    Hard truth…IF we, Christians, were true to God, not many brides could wear white, but the ceremony is want the covenant has now become.

    IF we, as Christians, confronted pornography, the BIGGEST silent sin that puts us on the path to so many formats of sexual sins, we would take a good look in the mirror, & get rid of the sources that make that process so easy to get to (We are told to RUN from sexual sins…yet the commercials on television alone, share with the next generation we embrace that value & knowledge)

    IF we, as Christians, confronted the educational system, even to the point of demanding the Bible back in the tax paid buildings & those that work in them, then maybe the self estimated ‘Christians’, said to be 85% of those living in America alone, might come closer than the reality that that number is really more in the 20′s than 80′s.

    What we read, watch, listen to, where we go, all play a part on the next generation…& we are so far back in a timeline of that of ‘Noah’ to the point even a movie about Noah is almost 100% wrong…I mean, who can get a boat wrong.

    The Bible tells us that it was the hand of God that closed the door…& then the rain, which never had been. No one ever saw, at that time, water fall from the sky…& it got heavier, & heavier, till it swallowed evil.

    I’m not sure where this path leads me, but I have realized most here are not interested in truth, respectfully, because just like when I was apostate, I compromised with sin & those, from that pulpit, that embraced it for everyone in that church to see.

    It was a church that my mom & dad met in, when they moved here from the states they came from. The church they grew in Christ…the church they were married in…the church I grew up in as a second home…& as it got more Liberal & Liberal, the Holy Spirit left, as men & women replaced God with their own values, own wants & needs…& the only person I could talk to what I saw, was the children’s ministers.

    I got into arguments & questions with those I knew all my life…& God opened my eyes to the point I decided I had to leave, but the deal I prayed to God about, was first the church I would go to would be closer to where I lived.

    I kept praying & searching, as I now was in no church. I went to cable, the computer & other sources…& very few stood & all that did were hours away.

    I finally got mad with God. Reminded Him of the deal I made & He wasn’t holding up His end…& then I got an email from my 90 year old school teacher I had contacted a couple of years earlier when I was on Facebook, & she invited me to her church.

    I gotta say, I was humbled. The last thing I expected, the last source I thought could help me, got me to one of the few pastors who stands, who gives more Bible study than sermon.

    Something BIG is going on, & most folks have no idea what it is. They are oblivious to the fact that what happens in the natural world is often a result of what is happening in the spiritual world. Hannity & Limbaugh tell us that it’s a battle between political ideologies…but it is really a battle between two seeds; the seed of the serpent & the seed of the woman. It’s the DNA. They’re, pastors, preachers, ministers, reverends, etc, are messing with the seed, & you’ll never see it if you remain safely tucked away in your box.

    As it was in the days of Noah…

    My Truth pursuit has led to me to discover that there is another world of believers that I never knew existed. Literally millions of Christians have begun to awaken to the fact that they have been receiving only a small sliver of Truth from their churches. Most pastors either don’t know, or don’t want to talk about the powerful evil forces working to overthrow God.

    When I listen to my new pastor, I take notes. I want to take home what he tells me from the Bible, get to my Biblical Thesaurus for words & terms I don’t understand, & get to what God is feeding my head & heart…and sometimes the FEELINGS are so much more easier to swallow than the FACTS God is trying to give me.

    I have found how incomplete ALL of the Apostles really were when they gave everything to Jesus to lead them. What they wanted Him to lead them to, wasn’t the truth that all.

    So much of what I’ve learned in my Christian walk has seemed so shallow. Not that it wasn’t empowering or life-changing, but it still seemed superficial & incomplete. There’s so much more to learn & so little we have been exposed to.

    That’s the journey I’m on. And where I started the realization took me out of an apostate church, where you could easily get lost in the arguments that ‘compromised’ immoralities, & left me questioning everything. This is what I had to do…

    If it is true, then I want to know it. If it isn’t true, well, I wanna know that too. Truth does not scare me, even if it does shake me out of my comfort zone.

    So I began by asking myself a few very simple questions: How do I know if what my pastor is teaching me is the Truth? Who taught him? Has he put all the pieces of the puzzle together? If the Truth is the Truth, why are there so many variations on it?

    I think these are some questions that serious Christians need to ask, but most of us cling to our doctrine rather than the Truth. Baptists believe one way, Methodists another. The Pentecostals focus on “the gifts”, while other denominations don’t even believe in them. I’ll bet, if you’re like me, that you were shocked when you found out that not everyone believes in the rapture.

    I hope you’re getting a bit nervous right now. It would be good for you if you are. It would prove that you are a seeker of Truth. When we think we know it all, Truth is a dangerous place to live.

    “Like James, you are a systematic and incisive thinker. You voraciously ingest information and apply sharp logical analysis to produce sound insights and strategies. You are focused and determined, and you let little stand in the way of achieving your goals. You never back down from an argument once you are sure you have thought things through.”

    “However, like James, your unbending logic may be a bit too biting. Like a true “Son of Thunder” your ambition and temper may be perceived by others as callous and stinging. Your rough edge may alienate your audience, even if your insights are correct. And your persistent focus on accuracy and improvement may make you a target of those wishing to preserve the status quo.”

    “Your role as a disciple of Christ is that of a reliable expert and truth-teller. You don’t mince words, and you bring clarity and consistency to the more ambiguous matters of religion and spirituality. Other people look to you for sound teaching as you fight for truth until the end.”

    …Have to say I agree with a lot of this, but I am on a different path.

    We’ve only been given a small piece of the Truth. We Christians, that is. We’ve been put in a box by the men standing in the pulpits & it’s time to expose the Truth that they’ve been hiding from us.

    Truth is liberating, but it can also be very scary. My goal is not to scare, but to liberate. Jesus told us that “you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.”

    5 Things I Would Say to President Obama If I Were His Pastor

    @skylight7,
    Sorry about not replying quickly. One band was ‘Gungor’.
    http://christiannews.net/2014/08/09/baptist-church-cancels-gungor-concert-for-rejecting-genesis-as-literal/

    But, over the years, many Christian bands have been exposed to the reason they did this, wasn’t because they believed…but because it was a growing market. Just look at Hollywood starting to produce ‘Bible’ stories (though not accurate, made for entertainment value like ‘Noah’ for example).

    This is the most clearest values of covet, and why it is the baseline for almost all acts of criminal actions.

    We covet what others have, objects and people. We covet lifestyles, relationships, love we see others share…and instead of earning those things, through words, deeds and hearts, our society feeds theft, murder, rape, molestation, pedophilia, homosexual behavior, sex before marriage, lust, adultery, kidnapping.

    It is so simple (yet hard). God is so NOT a part of this world, even half that claim ‘Christian’ really aren’t, and Jesus even warns us of ‘wolves’ and ‘dogs’ (neither were pets back then. They were both scavengers, but one was INSIDE the ‘flock’ the others were OUTSIDE, non-Christians that want to convince Christians to compromise & coexist.

    In this world, that is easy to do…and God even warns, “It would be better if you had never known” to the value of spitting the ‘lukewarm’, those that did know God, yet chose not to stand, not to try and help others find Christ…But that value didn’t come through words. It came through actions…and COVET was the last thing you would teach, preach or stand in.

    Real simple The value of Covet: “A thought reaps an action, an action reaps a habit, a habit reaps a character, and a character reaps an eternal destiny.”

    This is why Capital Punishment, upon conviction ONLY DEATH to murderers, rapists, molesters, pedophiles, kidnappers & terrorists are the ONLY answer to taking out that value & foundation.

    @roscoe569,
    It’s obvious we don’t agree on this, & as far as ignorance, well it’s bliss when facts are eliminated.
    The fact that voters decided they didn’t want this in their states…& those votes, democracy, means nothing.
    As far as ‘my friends’, I had those that were around me, but they were not friends. My second roommate was a ‘Christian’ & really a ‘wolf’, moving in with me for a month (he slept on my sleeper sofa, ate my food & I would drive him to college, all the while telling me he would reimburse me at the end of the month…& then he left.
    I have a cousin, whom I love, & he rejects anything to do with God, even tested me when he moved in for a while…& when I told him he violated the conditions staying in my house, I am now the bad person because of my actions. I could go on & on…but my real family isn’t even by blood in many. Their choice.
    Your welcome to your own opinion, but you never address the fact, in this action, judges & government superseding the voters authority in this issue, when the majority living in those states gave a clear & concise answer…NO…the actions of judges turned their backs to law, pick & choose mentality, & this is nothing new.
    Amazingly enough, the two homosexuals on my street that I have talked to about the only format of democracy in this nation, voting, was bypassed…but once again, the the the normality of ‘law’ by the perversions aided by those that are not God’s people, even if they say they are.
    God Bless

  • [2] October 8, 2014 at 12:35pm

    This is, once again, a double standard of the America we all now live in.
    Now, I am torn. I don’t believe judges have the right to force businesses to do business, in the private sector, with those that violate their beliefs…& then leave it to those still wanting to do business with that company, or per the value of individuals, it will go out of business….BUT JUDGES HAVE RULED OVER EVEN VOTED ON STATE VALUES, over what the voters either voted for or against. And in doing that violate their CONSTITUTIONAL duty…but then they just call the Constitution ‘floating’, & we let them get away with it. Then we have Congress that stands for something, & if the majority in Congress do something the President doesn’t like, he violates the CONSTITUTION of law, by bypassing that process…& once again, we let him get away with it, & he justifies it by calling the Constitution ‘floating’.

    So, in essence, we have ‘floaters’ that are now judges, attorneys, Congressmen/Congresswomen & Presidents who all bypass us, kick the can, blame each other…& always increase taxes, regulations, restrictions to increase their invisible ‘widget’ we pay for (they don’t produce ANY PRODUCT, but they do PRODUCE DEBT).

    If anyone wants to work for an openly non-Christian company, per the rules judges have bypassed their authority, they have to allow this also, or be fined, as they have other businesses.

    Personally, I’d move on, let their values be known, & see how long they stayed open.
    God Bless

    Capitalist business have expense accounts that CANNOT be overdrawn. They are LIMITED month to month, & we should be LIMITING the abilities that government no has, not strengthen it.

    Talking to others, they seem to think that until we LIMIT THE PURSE-STRINGS of those within government, nothing will change except a D/R after their names. Looking at what we have in judges, attorneys, lawyers, lobbyists, Congress & government position appointed, as well as many government employees up the food-chain, all we have is representative of covet, theft, bearing false witness, doing drugs, inviting prostitutes, celebrities, terrorists & watching porn…all from taxpayers wallets, purses…& we’re finding out now, illegally taken from bank accounts without our knowledge.

    Anyone who reads what I have to say, knows what is coming next. The answer is God.

    Not the sugarcoated, cartoon value many churches ‘preach’ & ‘teach’, but the tough love, personal responsibility, shame, restitution & discipline for all value of theft, immorality, ignorance, arrogance & that which divides just plain commonsense from those we elect & those that steal power to force their values over laws & our termite eaten Constitution ransacked with destroying it just from within this nation alone.

    1.TERM LIMITS ON JUDGES, ON ALL CONGRESS, ON LOBBYISTS.
    2.ASSIMILATION NOT IMMIGRATION, WITH NOTHING OUTSIDE THAT PROCESS (no visa’s, refugee status, diplomatic immunity)
    3.ENGLISH OFFICIAL LANGUAGE

  • [1] October 8, 2014 at 11:54am

    It would be easy to break the back of this now, institution of ignorance, arrogance & waste of tax dollars. All that would have to pass in the status our representatives of both the House & Senate forced to reside the the residence they claimed while running for office, not Washington.

    Right now, all Lobbyists have to do is walk from door to door. If the process of having to fly, on their own dime, across the nation, they wouldn’t have the power they have now. Of course many Capitalist businesses have conference calls per phone or video, & just think of the tactics Congress could get away with if we took them back to the part-time job they sue to be. Not tax paid positions, but positions that wanted to make the next generation freer/safer, not a part of the problem.

    If we FORCED TERM LIMITS PER DEMOCRACY (voting per state), we could, state by state, force our representatives in the value we would hold them to. Not empty words, or ‘kicking the can’, but actually holding them accountable with shame, restitution & discipline in what we DON’T DO, but should.

    I’m not sure how this works, but when a BILL is introduced, NOTHING that is not related to it, should be allowed to be added to it…PERIOD! That is the process that deceptions, agendas, ignorance, arrogance & immoralities get a free pass, & we’re left with representatives that say, “Well, you have to sign it into law before you actually know what we are trying to get past voters & legal citizens.”
