I was reading an article from the Israeli News Service Arutz Sheva about the dilemma that our traditional allies are having trying to figure out the real direction of America and President Obama’s seeming obsession with loyalty to Islam. I highly recommend taking the time to read it as I think it addresses certain questions that many of us here in America are asking as well. Who’s side is the current Administration on?
Today most of us are so busy with life that it tends to put all other things on the back burner if they are hard for us to handle or calling us to deal with things we don’t like to think about. The truth is though that we must think about these things in the light of our current crisis of confidence and the realities of the danger represented by those who follow the real teachings and practices of Islam as set forth in the Qur’an and the Hadith. One of the most frightening yet eye opening things I have seen lately comes from a media interview with an Islamic Mullah living in Norway who tells the truth about the goals of true Islam in the world today.
Psalm 33:12 reminds us that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. . .” But with the pace that America is moving to erase the God of the Bible from our national conscience and replace Him with one who resembles a powerless and confused deity from some mythical Land of Oz, the question comes to mind: ‘Are we as a nation under the Judgment of God?’ Is all the confusion and double mindedness that we see operating in the Halls of Power and Government in America actaully the result of forsaking the One who guided the hearts and minds of our Founding Fathers? Are we, like the Jews who came out of Egypt in the Exodus story – blinded by disobedience and our failure to ‘Walk in the Law of the Lord’?
One of the great realities of our Democratic style of Gevernment is that the people we put in power act as a barometer of the moral and social thinking of the voters. This can be good if we recognize areas in need of change or correction and we act on them properly. But it seems that todays political parties are so focused on establishing a safety net for holding onto the reigns of power that most legislation is clearly intended for that purpose by both parties. A blind man can see what needs to be done in most cases, but self serving politicians seem unable or unwilling to do what is needed for fear of being ostracized or losing the benefits their office affords them. We are hamstrung by bureocracy and many Americans are swooning in the stupor that this has created and giving up their hopes in the process.
We are tired of war and our enemies are taking advantage of that. The wars of the last 13 plus years have drained our strength and our economy. This puts us in a position of vulnerability like we have not seen in over fifty years. But facing the reality of radical Islam cannot be something we ignore. This enemy sees all efforts for restraint and civility as weakness. The more we ignore this the more endangered we become as a nation and a civilzation.
So what is the answer? For believers it is the same as it has always been: call upon the Name of the Lord and ask for forgiveness and mercies. Our enemies are His enemies. He knows what to do and He can make swift work of them if we will humble ourselves, pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways’, (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Before our allies in the world can believe in America again we must first do so ourselves. I for one realize that I am in the last quarter, but I am still moved to speak out with what voice I have for Righteousness and Truth. My children and grandchildren’s future depends upon it and so I must. Hopefully our own Government will wake up soon and we can be a nation united once again around the Truths and Principles that made America the greatest nation in the history of the world. ∞
