Has God Abandoned America?

Over the past three days, I’ve heard two different preachers teach similar messages from Romans 1:18 through 2:9. The conclusion suggested is, has God abandoned America? Since God doesn’t let individuals, or nations know that He has abandoned them (Judges 16:20-last sentence), how can we know if he’s abandoned us? Romans 1:28 states that God gave “them” (sinners – but could it apply to an entire nation) over to a depraved mind. A depraved mind is not useful. It does not think, reason, or, comprehend. It cannot discern the difference between right and wrong because it suppresses the truth of God’s word and thus it does not have a moral basis for determining right from wrong.

This is very sobering, and descriptive of our nation’s condition. Our country and future generations are in deep trouble.

I recently returned from Washington, DC. The meeting was filled with government officials. They argued, debated, and articulated lofty plans. No decisions were made, thousands of taxpayer dollars wasted, and no one seemed to care. Washington has become more and more irrelevant. We pay our representatives large salaries and they do nothing. Have our Congressional leaders been abandoned and given over to a depraved mind?

President Bush seems bent on turning his back on Israel by trading land for peace including dividing Jerusalem. Nothing could be more misguided. He opposes the revealed word and will of our Creator, and places Israel’s and American’s safety in jeopardy. Apparently, he has lost the ability to discern the difference between right and wrong.

Further, not a single Presidential candidate has broached this issue. Maybe they think this is something the President can do under his foreign affairs authority and they should not raise an objection. Do they not realize that whoever becomes our next President will have to deal with the consequences of President Bush’s foolish appeasement of our Islamic enemies?

Next Tuesday will be the 35th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. Since then approximately 50 Million American citizens have been murdered in their mother’s wombs. Immorality runs rampant, homosexuality encouraged and moral clarity seems lost for all time. I will be discussing these matters on Tuesday with the KPOF AM 910 “Breakfast Table Show” from 7 – 8 AM MST.

I think the answer to the question is, yes, God has abandoned America. Unless we repent, cry out to God for his forgiveness (which He would grant), turn from our wicked ways, and obey His ways, America is doomed to self destruction. The second question, is it too late? Who will save us from the inevitable calamity to come?
