I think it’s been obvious for quite some time that America is in serious trouble. The election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 betrayed a woeful lack of judgment on the part of our nation’s electorate. For many years Obama lived and served the state of Illinois as an extreme left-wing ideologue. His associations with far left socialists, and indeed communists, would have gotten him completely shunned by any clear thinking group of free citizens. But indeed Obama’s toothy grin and smooth rhetoric won over the masses and he was inexplicably elected to the Presidency.
Perhaps his election could be attributed, at least partially, to the fact that he is black (or at least half-black). Many in the nation felt a certain guilt over past racism and maybe felt good about electing a man of color. I must admit, I too would have felt good….if the black man elected had only been named Clarence Thomas, or Walter Williams, or Thomas Sowell, or Allen West, or even Alan Keyes. Men with a modicum of common sense and the ability to see what is best for America. But instead, America elected Obama.
Fast forward to 2012 and we saw a country in utter turmoil. Obama’s policies had destroyed the economy. The national debt skyrocketed and unemployment continued to increase. Taxes ticked ever higher, and the government seized more control over the nation and the economy. Obama praised organizations like Planned Parenthood, the perpetrators of infanticide; and he publicly came out in support of “gay” marriage. Even prior to the election, Obama began to peel the mask off even further on who he was and what he stood for. The most radically liberal, anti-family, anti-baby, anti-decency, pro-perversion lunatic to ever grace the oval office. He has attacked Christians. He has attacked businesses. He has attacked America and praised our enemies. To be quite blunt, I believe him to be Satanic…….And America elected him again. Unbelievable. Or it would have been unbelievable if we didn’t have the Bible to warn us of such depraved minds.
The Bible says: "Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper." (Romans 1:24-28 NASB)
Today, Jason Collins, a professional basketball player announced that he was a homosexual. And in so doing he received a congratulatory call of support from the President of the United States. Be sure of this, that a nation this obsessed with “all things gay” is a nation destined to crumble and perish. Rare is the day in which you can turn on the news and not hear some story from the media singing the praises of perversion. We constantly hear about how support for gay marriage is increasing with each new poll; as if polls determine what is right or wrong. America is doomed because America is currently residing under the judgment of God; and this nation’s support for and obsession with homosexuality is both a cause and a proof of this judgment.
The book of Romans speaks of this type of society saying that “God gave them over to degrading passions” and a “depraved mind.” While all people are sinners by nature, the sin is manifested in numerous different ways. Sane societies reject homosexuality as being a perverse and bizarre inclination that goes against nature. Indeed if homosexuality were the norm, society would cease to exist because homosexual behavior does not have the biological ability to produce offspring. That fact alone should cause even the non-religious to admit the absurdity of homosexuality. But, our nation has a “depraved mind.”
It’s also a fact that men are more naturally inclined toward sexual perversions of all kinds, than are women. The vast majority of child molesters are men. There are far more male rapists than female. The multi-billion dollar pornography industry is aimed predominantly at men, because men are naturally more sexually deviant than women. But according to Romans 1, one of the marks of a society under God’s wrath is that even the women are perverted. Lesbianism is rampant in the United States of America. What else needs to be said in arguing that our nation has lost its collective mind?
It’s not surprising that Collins, of NBA fame, has “come out of the closet.” Sadly, it’s not even surprising that the demented President of the United States called to “congratulate” him. I would expect such behavior from the demonic. Obama simply speaks for many in our country when he embraces what God calls evil. Obama applauds what God despises. And what response would we expect from God? Would we expect His Divine blessings upon our land? Far from it. What we should expect is to see this nation “handed over” still more and more. As a nation we have rejected God; we have embraced depravity; and rest assured we will suffer the consequences thereof.
I would call on America to repent and submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. I would call America to seek the Lord’s forgiveness before it is too late. I would call Christians to lovingly, yet boldly stand up and speak the truth. Though the depraved might ignore and malign us; perhaps still yet, by a glorious act of God’s grace, opinions could change. Political views could change. Indeed hearts could change. And change they must……and quickly. Or America as we have historically known it, will cease to exist.
