America Has Fallen

Today, I want you to take a moment to pray for America. America has fallen, ladies and gentlemen. We have lost a war against evil in America. That’s why gay marriage is allowed for the entire U.S., an act which goes against our Constitution, by the way. Us Christians stood by the sidelines and let this entire takeover occur. What do I mean? Just look at what has happened to our country! We used to proudly salute our flag and say the Pledge of Allegiance without question. Now, we have political candidates pressing to take the “under God” part out. And what has happened to our Constitution anyway? Deciding something for the entire country is not allowed on that small of a scale; it is left up to the individual states. It says so in the tenth amendment.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” ~ Amendment 10.
“Any power not listed, says the Tenth Amendment, is left to the states or the people. Although the Tenth Amendment does not specify what these “powers” may be, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that laws affecting family relations (such as marriage, divorce, and adoption), commerce that occurs within a state’s own borders, and local law enforcement activities, are among those specifically reserved to the states or the people.” (Quote taken from Constitution Center.
The US government has no authority to decide relations between a man and a man or a woman and a woman, just as they cannot say in the future that a man may not marry a woman, and vice-versa. They have no authority over those kinds of decisions; it is left up to the States.
Some states have decreed that you cannot say “he” or “she” or anything relating to the separation of genders within a government-run facility because it might offend the “others”. What others? God didn’t design anyone to be an “other”. It is male or female, just like He said in Genesis 2. He did not design any other gender. And now, sadly, it is acceptable and even applaudable that young children influenced by liberal propoganda are allowed to make a permanent, life altering decision as to what gender they prefer to be. Is this world dead or is this sickening to read in the news? Only Christians seem to care about the Oregon college shooting. Check out these quotes:
“As to Obama’s comments calling for stricter gun-control measures?
‘This is about good and evil and has nothing to do with gun control,’ McFarland adds in a press release. ‘This killer would have chosen any means to carry out his motive. The point is, without the God of the Bible, there is no hope.'”*
“Persecution and targeting of Christians isn’t just in Iran or the Middle East, it’s right here in America. The bold souls at Umpqua Community College who stood up to say they were followers of Jesus Christ were heinously gunned down with no mercy. Jesus said, ‘If they hate you, remember they hated me before they hated you.’ (John 15:18)”**
This brings me to my next topic. Persecution is being exercised in America now. The attacks started 9/11/01, but they grew so that our own country and congressmen are back-stabbing traitors. Take Kim Davis for example. She was asked to do something that Christians should be proud to resist, and thankfully, she did. But she was ostracized for it. She was sent to serve a jail sentence that was an undefined length, except that the judge promised she would be released upon her agreement to abide by his ruling. She refused. The media, public, and surprisingly, fellow Christians viciously spoke out against her, but she boldly stood strong in the faith and deflected their rebukes. By picking on Kim Davis, she showed the strength of God to the world in America.
“What law did Kim Davis break? When asked to cite the law that would justify her being handcuffed and locked up in a jail cell, opponents mumble and stumble and look at the floor. They have no answer because there is no answer. What Mrs. Davis did was uphold the law. The Constitution itself is silent about marriage, which means the issue, according to the 10th Amendment, is left to the states.”***
“The one violating the Constitution and the law here is the federal judge, David Bunning, who sent her to the slammer for keeping her oath of office. “***
What Mrs. Davis did was uphold the law. The Constitution itself is silent about marriage, which means the issue, according to the 10th Amendment, is left to the states.
That should not be happening! We should not be threatened with imprisonment for refusing to sign something that violates our faith in America! What happened to America being the “home of the free”? And what happened to the Eighth Amendment that states: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel or unusual punishments inflicted.” This is communist behavior in action! Only in the Communist East have I seen this kind of behavior. I must say that I am ashamed to have this kind of face for America. These stories are/were on mainstream news, being broadcasted world-wide to all different countries. What will they think about America’s behavior? But most importantly, what is God thinking right now? He detests this kind of behavior! Sure, people who endure persecution are blessed in His Kingdom, but that doesn’t mean He wants it for His people at all. This is sickening behavior for a country founded by Christian authors. Now think about this next step – it’s not too late to change some of the damage done to our country. That’s why this election will be so important. Who we elect determines the course of our country. I cannot imagine the detestable actions that would come upon America if Hillary Clinton were to be elected. She could make Obama’s work look like child’s play. Our government has failed before our eyes.
But we have strayed further than that, sadly. While praying for America, we cannot forget the apathetic attitude regarding the unborn. Abortion is a horrific thing; a way to legally excuse murdering a baby before he/she is born. But it is culturally accepted as a kind option for mothers. If a mother can’t support a child, we should murder it, right? If the baby will be born “different”, eliminate it, yes? And what if we really wanted a boy instead of a girl? China says that’s a great reason to abort! There are thousands of people who cannot be blessed with a baby and would love to adopt one. But people who do not care about God’s perfect plan for their child just take the child’s life before it can even say “mama”.
If you have not heard what’s up with Planned Parenthood, it’s kind of a big deal for us Christians to know about.  Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, is an established and obvious liar. Planned Parenthood has been suspected for years of many unethical and illegal wrongdoings, and when finally confronted with the truth, she denies (under oath) irrefutable evidence exposing their treachery. If you have not heard, there was a string of videos collected by people posing as potential clients who have captured illegal actions on video in the Planned Parenthood facilities. Huge crimes include the willingness to give an abortion to someone who was not of the age to receive one, selling organs at a non-profit organization, and other awful and unspeakable actions or willingness to undertake those actions. The thing that has caused debate is the fact that Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization, meaning, it is funded by the government. The illegal actions should not be supported by the government, and the funding should stop immediately. Also, Cecile Richards has stated that abortions are only 3% of the services they offer, when in actuality, that number is 86%. She also purports that they are in the business of providing general women’s health care, for example, offering mammograms, despite the actuality that not one of their 600+ facilities world-wide are equipped to provide this service.
“Big news happened today,” said Matt Walsh last week. “Planned Parenthood testified on Capitol Hill. Fittingly for an organization that murders 300 thousand children a year, it was a bloodbath. Planned Parenthood lies about literally everything, nothing they say about anything can ever be believed or taken seriously, and every point and every statement they make is either an obvious untruth or a really obvious untruth.” 300 thousand children every year never get to see their parents. Never get the chance to honor God. Never get the chance to fulfill their mission in life. How they got that number I do not know, but it is a stunning amount of beautiful children that never get to see the light of day. But do they? The undercover people sent in to get the videos discovered that there were some cases where babies did, in fact, survive the abortion. When asked how Planned Parenthood handles such situations, Cecile Richards said she’d never heard of that circumstance happening. “It was a fascinating statement considering abortion survivors just testified in front of this very same committee.” (Matt Walsh also.) She asserts that should that ever happen at one of their facilities, then, of course, the baby should receive proper medical care.
But do we really believe that a company who views each live child as lost revenue would have the decency to do that? And what exactly are they doing with their government funding and 127 million dollars in “excess revenue”? For a non-profit organization, they are literally raking it in. We, the taxpayers, are funding their penchant for elaborate parties and extravagant fluff. Here is an excellent article that gives details regarding the flagrant misuse of funds, if you want to read more.
This isn’t like accidentally killing an animal on the side of the road one night. This is killing an average of 300 thousand innocent children each and every year for who knows how long. And if each and every 300,000 of those children survived, do you think they would ask to have been murdered prematurely? No one in their right mind would say that! Why is this not disturbing everybody like 9/11 did? About 3,000 lives were lost in the World Trade Centers, and 184 in the Pentagon. Besides it being a frontal assault on America, how is this really different from the staggering amounts of children who are killed through abortion every year? It is not. It is still murder, it is still a crime, and it should be illegal. How can you not love a young life? The blissful innocence that they have? It is lovely. I have a 2 year-old brother here, and I know the blessings of seeing a young, beautiful, and amazing life.

  1. Okay, so I already said most of this messaging you this morning. But I’ll outline my thoughts here as well. I agree with what you said, about abortion particularly. I can understand how homosexuality could be debated, but abortion to me is just such an infuriating topic. To someone who loves children, it is unthinkable to me that we as a nation consider that okay.

    My caution is this: Don’t let the Republican party or conservative politics become the savior. I’m not saying you did; you didn’t. But the answer to the world’s moral problems is not the election booth. Sadly, evil will almost always outnumber good. The answer to fixing the heart problem behind the moral behavior is the gospel.

    It’s a rather common problem that we see a lot in Christian conservative circles to feel that our problems would be solved if this new candidate would just win. But even if this candidate won and began to emphasize outward moral behavior (which is good; it’s a huge part of the government’s job), we as Christian’s can’t be satisfied with that. In fact, many times it’s harder to spread the gospel in a purely moral culture than it is in an admittedly evil one.

    As Christians, we have a very different goal than politicians. A politician has the clearer goal of protecting the citizen’s in his care. But as Christian’s, we’re called to go deeper than just forcing moral behavior. We aim for the heart. Apart from that heart change, man remains just as evil, no matter what policies may be in effect.

    I agree with your thoughts. I’m disappointed in so much of the political atmosphere today in my country. It’s disheartening, and as someone who has represented the USA before, I spent a long time thinking about what exactly it was I was representing. I don’t believe change would be impossible; I simply think we, as believers, need to emphasize a heart change, not just a behavior change.

  2. I can’t speak to why the government doesn’t feel bound by the 10th amendment, but I know they don’t exactly honor several of the others either!

    If you deny the authority of the Bible, you deny the basis of right or wrong. ‘Right’ or ‘wrong’ becomes what’s popular or unpopular. Without a standard, ‘right’ is determined by the loudest voices. When we took official prayer out of the schools in the 1970’s, we raised a generation with no moral standard, and this is the result.

    If you agree with the above paragraph, the handling of the Kim Davis situation makes sense. This lady was refusing to do her ‘job’, and refusing to step down and let a different person do it. If you reject the Bible as an authority, you have no basis for right and wrong. She stood in the way of the new ‘right’, and did so publicly. It’s unfortunate, but not surprising that it turned out this way.

    I think 9/11 bothered us so much in that we felt vulnerable. Abortion is something we feel we can ignore. It poses no danger to us, so we focus on the things affecting our life, like the air conditioner is making a strange sound, or the oil needs changing. We are given clear commands to take care of the orphans and widows. The idea is to care for those who can’t care for themselves, and no one fits this description more accurately than a baby.

    Thanks for the article!

    • Thanks, Tye! I didn’t expect anyone to answer any questions posed in my article, so thanks for doing that! Maybe you can come out here sometime and discuss some of the other amendments and primary components of the Constitution that have been ignored. 🙂 By the way, Kim Davis was returned to her job, and whenever she is asked to sign a marriage license to a gay couple, she passes the job along to another employee. I totally agree with what you said about abortion, too. Thanks for contributing!

  3. Very good article… it’s amazing how much of this coincides with our debate case… the Supreme Court is at fault for so much of it. Abortion, the Commerce Clause, even stripping the Tenth amendment of its original meaning.
    Overall, great job.
