As I was standing in front of the U. S. Capital Building, it suddenly hit me: The Body of Christ is to have a mighty influence on America. From the get-go, our founding fathers realized that morality and love of truth would breathe life into the Constitution. They believed in liberty, not license. They believed in freedom, not anarchy. They understood that the system of government they had created must work in concert with God fearing, hardworking, freedom loving citizens.
The church refuses to face the truth today, which is why we are powerless in the face of our ongoing national destruction. We must face the facts. We must see that the Loony Left is a weapon of Socialist tyranny that is about to kill America. We already see their death in the disastrous programs meant to help the poor.
Ben Franklin said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
Right now, 49.2 percent of all Americans are receiving benefits from at least one government program, and the U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.
The leftists believe they are the only ones who care about poverty, racism and injustice. Secular progressives will say they love the poor. If so, then they have loved Detroit to death. After 61 years, and after receiving nearly a trillion dollars in Federal aid, Detroit has been reduced to a pile of rubble by liberal policies. The city is a horror show of abandoned factories, illiteracy, prostitution, gangs, and homeless camps. The same damage can be seen in any urban area where these programs dominate. It is an agenda of evil.
Michael Snyder said, “In 1960, the city of Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city that the world had ever seen. Nearly two million people lived there, and it had the highest per capita income in the United States. That may be hard to believe, because today it actually has one of the lowest per capita incomes of all of our major cities. Over the decades more than a million people have left the city, and thousands of abandoned homes have been torn down.
It has become known as a mecca of violent crime and poverty, and now a viral video is giving an unpleasant view of Detroit after dark.
The clip, called Driving through Detroit at night, was filmed by a woman who was a passenger in a car going around the Motor City and was posted to Twitter at the weekend.
It shows terrifying scenes of gangs gathered on the sidewalk, prostitutes lifting up their skirts and dancing, and even a man being run over by a car on purpose.
Many people openly wonder what happened to Detroit, but it really isn’t much of a mystery at all.”
We poured untold billions into Detroit, but corrupt Democrat Leaders gutted this city. Now they will gut America.
The Democrat agenda for America is the Spirit of Antichrist pure and simple. It is the instrument by which virtue, freedom, and justice will be removed and our cities turned into institutional hell holes.
I challenge you: name a single city that has been run by Democrats for decades that is not a city corrupt to the walls, leading the nation in rampant crime, awash in drugs and perversion, and looking like a third world country. Having learned nothing, they have made the Squad with their extremist policies, the face of the Democrat Party.
Leftist ideology appeals to three kinds of people:
1. Those who do not want to work.
2. Those who want to gain power by posing as champions for the poor.
3. Those who feel self-loathing and guilt for the sins of their ancestors.
Social progressives will accuse me of blaming the victim. I am not blaming the victim—I am naming the villain.
The church should be a great force for saving America, but we have been neutralized. The media changed the rules about how Christians and government relate. On the one hand, they made it fashionable to bash the church, the Bible, and Israel. On the other hand, they made it wrong for the church to speak out, and have directly attacked our freedom to preach the Gospel.
The Left’s tactics are trying to make the church look hateful just for having an opposing view. Many famous pastors have let this slide because they did not want to appear racist. Still others feared the IRS would remove their tax-free status. Now we know we were wrong to be silent.
Another example is the Chicago area which has a larger number of shooting victims every week than were killed at Parkland. And people are fleeing in record numbers. Chicago, the county seat of Cook County, has had a huge population loss—the largest of any county in the country. Between 2015 and 2016 Cook County experienced a domestic migration loss of more than 66,000 people, “a staggering number of people to lose in a single year.” (Michael Snyder, Economist)
I believe that evil politicians should fear us. Paul did not believe that his gospel integrity would be ruined by speaking out against evil leadership. Nor do I believe that my outspoken opposition to the pro-death Democrat Party is in any way inconsistent with love or truth. For that matter, Christ did not worry that turning over tables and evicting the money changers would ruin His image of love and compassion.
Our silence has stemmed from another root: our decreased faith in the Gospel. We have forgotten its surpassing power. We do not remember the history of how the church has stemmed corruption in America in the past. We have forgotten the record of how men and women in the Bible have turned the tide of evil government. We have forgotten how effective the Gospel is in situations just like this.
We have forgotten that the Gospel is supernatural.
We must embrace the simple truth that government is a crippling counterfeit of the Gospel. And we must allow God to explode a fresh passion for the Gospel, the greatest of all messages. Then we will proclaim its truth with a powerful roar, and without apology! Should we not have a bold and fiery national declaration of Christ, I shudder to think what will happen!
Please, ponder the words of John Adams written in 1798:
“While (America) remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world: while she continues to be sincere and incapable of insidious and impious policy (practices): we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep (hypocrisy) towards one another and towards foreign nations which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practicing iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming picture of…sincerity while it is rioting in (greed) and insolence—this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world: because we have no Government armed with power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or (bravado) would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate (for the governing) of any other.”
Heed my warning: unless there is a Great Awakening in America, unless there is a new baptism of the Holy Spirit, and unless fresh fire falls upon the church, neither our Constitution nor any of the thousands of laws currently on the books will prevent the chaos that will surely bring about the collapse of the United States.
As God’s people we must quit showing tolerance for policies that are destroying America. We must shake off any and all embarrassment of the Gospel. Yes, there have been abuses, but as Woodrow Wilson said, “The proof that the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.” Even a small determined group of spirit-filled warriors preaching with unbridled boldness and total obedience is enough to stop this Democrat agenda of evil.
