the sources of which you are thinking all are symptoms.
- Government school turning us into a nation of ignoramuses with no morals
- Government employees engaging in ________(fill in the blank) scandalous behavior
- Black culture broken
- Dependency culture
- 1/2 them kids is bastards anymore
- The President is a Democrat*
All these are symptoms, and if you were in my church this Sunday you may have caught a passing reference to the root of the degredation of our nation:
the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people … have removed their heart far from me…: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid -Isaiah 29:13-14
So there you go. If a nation starts off with God in the right place in their individual hearts and society as a whole, then abandon Him – this is what you can expect. This is largely what we have done . . . so what do you expect? It is only as good as it still is because God is slow to wrath.
Yes, there are people out there, Republicans mostly and some Independents and Libertarians, who have good ideas. Ideas which, if implemented would turn the country around and set us back on the track to prosperity and full employment with transparency and goodness in our government from top to bottom. The prudent men are there. The solutions are there. But they are, as the Bible told us they would be, hidden. Not from those who are paying attention, but from the Low-Information crowd that elects people who set up governments like the one we have now.
It gets worse. It does not get fixed. The nation falls. Currently, we are only waiting for the fizzle.
*it’s a reference to an old Simpsons cartoon – which is another symptom in itself!
