Give The People Bread And Circuses

Have you noticed how our "representative" leaders are accomplishing their goals? It has nothing to do with solving the problem or even reality. They are using the same technique the mafia uses. Through threads of harm or by paying off the opposition. Threats of harm mean threats of lawsuits or destruction of someone's reputation - essentially taking away they life they had. For example, this has been used a lot to get pharmaceutical companies to give support to health care reform. It is also being used against the CIA and justice department attorneys from the Bush administration. The payoffs are easier to see. The latest is the Senator from Nebraska holding out on supporting the Reid health care bill until Nebraska is given extra money (a pay off). Or President Obama promising future payments of $100,000,000,000 per year to other countries, if they support reduction of carbon emissions. Nothing but another payoff. And since others now recognize this is the way Obama works, they won't agree to what Obama wants until they get their share of YOUR money. That's where the money comes from. Your pocket.

I read something interesting a while ago. A survey showed that when asked where the government gets their money, about 45% said, "They have their own money." What's especially interesting is that about the same percentage of people pay very, very low levels of taxes. Let's get in touch with reality!! The government doesn't have any money. All of it comes out of YOUR pocket.

This is why the way the Bible sets up government and taxation everyone pays taxes.

This is also why in the Bible representation of the people is set up on a household basis, not an individual basis. Only those who have a stake in the outcome have the right to decide on the laws that control the outcome.

You will be paying more for health care. You will be paying BIG TIME for reducing carbon emissions. But don't worry, you will still have TV.

Roman poet Juvenal wrote in the first century: give the people bread and circuses and they will never revolt. What was true then is still true today... unless we turn to God.

Beautiful Day For God's Judgment

What does it look like when you are living in a country that is under God's judgment instead of blessing?

I look out the window and see blue sky, green grass and beautiful flowers. The Mama's and Papa's Anthology is on the CD player. The air is warm, just perfectly right. I had a pleasant meeting with some Christian clients this afternoon. It a beautiful day... nothing is going wrong. Is this what it looks like to be in God's wrath?


God's wrath takes several forms, one of which is the withdrawal of His blessing. I'd guess this has been happening in America for at least the past 40 or 50 years, maybe longer. What does the withdrawal of God's blessing look like? Roman 1:24-32 describes what happens.

"Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another." [Gay marriage and homosexuality being recognized as not on acceptable, but right and good.]

"They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, andworshipped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen" .." [Evolution, although not based on fact or scientific proof, becoming the only accepted explaination for life.]

"The have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice." [Corporate executives' greed. Politicians' adultery. The murder of millions through abortion. A socialistic government that thinks nothing of lying if it furthers their cause.]

Verse 32 ends the list of evil and wickedness with a perfect description of America: "Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them."

Look at the countries America is trying become friends with. It's a list of evil dictators. Who are we turning away from? Israel.

Look out your window. The America you see is what a country under God's wrath looks like.

What's Satan's Next Target?

The true battle is a spiritual battle with many fronts. In the past few years we've seen America take many big hits, both physical and spiritual. The physical affects the spiritual because it can lead us away from from God.

America took a big financial hit during the past year. Who did we turn to? Was it God? No it was government. Actually in many cases our government stepped in in the name of "saving us" without being asked to save us.

America has been hit from several directions, and what has been the physical world cause? In most cases government. They always point fingers at others, but it was government lending policies that led to the real estate meltdown.

Remember, the more crisis there are, the more government can convince people to turn to them for salvation. But, the truth is that each time this happens people will get less and less "salvation" and more entrapped in a system that leads them away from God.

So what's next? Think about some area's in which America is strong and you've found the next targets. An obvious one is energy. Everything takes energy to run. Without energy we return to the stone age. America has more energy reserves than any other country. Enough energy to last us for over 500 years. That energy is coal. And what is now under attack? Coal as an energy source. The tool is called "global warming."

Saudi Arabia as 25% of the world's oil resources and the Middle East in general has 40% of the world's natural gas. On the other hand America has 27% of the world's coal resources.

If you were Satan what would you do?

America is called an energy glutton because we use more energy than other countries. The argument is that our energy use must decrease. Those that make that argument should spend some time in countries that use less energy. I was in southern India earlier this year. I didn't need an alarm clock because the city power went off every morning at 7:00 AM and a few minutes later the noisy diesel generator for the hotel kicked in. It was a nice hotel, but there was no hot water... which wasn't too bad because the weather was so hot that the cold water wasn't very cold. In some sections of the city at night shop owners lit their shops with candles and lanterns, because there was no electricity. Women washed clothes in the river, pounding them on rocks. Overall I loved India and look forward to returning. But shouldn't we be working to raise their standard of living instead of lowering ours.

It's just a guess, but look for America to be further beat up as a result of government energy programs and policies... and then of course to save us from those results we'll get more government programs that further steal our work, treasure and lives.

So why aren't you out sharing the gospel?

How Does God Treat Nations?

I have a question for you... Does God's interaction with the nation of Israel in the Old Testament reflect how He interacts with nation's today?

How does God use nations? God blessed Israel when they turned to Him and he withdrew His blessing when they turned away. Actually He did more than withdraw His blessing, He punished Israel. He brought drought, insects, enemies and exile to punish the nation of Israel. National punishment hurt both those who still lived in obedience to God and those who had turned away.

What does God do with nations today? The Bible tells us that all governments are from God. Does that mean that governments are tools He uses to teach us? Tools He uses to drive us to Him?

In America we have replaced God with government. It is now government we turn to for salvation. Not salvation from sin, but salvation from anything and everything else. But the more we turn to government to save us, the greater our problems. Don't we know history? For each problem government "solves" they create the foundation for three or four new problems that will become the next big crisis... which of course the government is then called on to solve.

Turning to the government for salvation brings nothing but increased misery. Maybe this is what God is teaching us. It's the same thing He was teaching Israel in the Old Testament. Trust God. Turn to God. Obey God. He is our creator. He made us. He knows us. He loves us. Trust Him.

Where Is God?

I just canceled my subscription to our local paper. I'd browse through its pages and feel like there was nothing to read... not one mention of God. The few times Christianity was mentioned in an article, it was invariable misrepresented. Yes, there was the religion section in the paper every Saturday. But that was about religion, not about God.

The question kept coming to mind, how can there be daily news without once mentioning the creator of the universe, and the one who continues to hold it all together. Without mentioning the one from whom all good things come, every day of our lives. The one who provides the food we eat and the very air we breath. And every day He is ignored.

Although the paper was filled with Obama worship, there was never any worship of the true God. There was no point in paying for something that was not worth reading.

But this led me to the question, what has happened to us? How is it that we have removed God from our lives and put Him so far away from us? How is it that we, as a nation, ignore God every day... and expect to get away with it?

Where is God? He is not first in the thoughts and deeds of most Americans. God is here. He has not left us, but we have left God.

What's Happening In America?

If they know of him at all, many folks think Ben Stein is just a quirky actor/comedian who talks in a monotone. He's also a very intelligent attorney who knows how to put ideas and words together in such a way as to sway juries and make people think clearly.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.
I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, "Merry Christmas" to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution, and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship Nick and Jessica and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him?

I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too.

But there are a lot of us who are wondering where Nick and Jessica came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show. Regarding Katrina Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this Happen?"

Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.

She said, "I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?" (She said the same thing when interviewed after 9-11)

In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how you can send "jokes" through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it.. no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards. Honestly and respectfully,
Ben Stein

The intensity/excitement concerning the year 2012 is increasing. There are more books, more talk shows and more articles being devoted to 2012.

What is happening in 2012?

Many think it will be the year that Armageddon happens. (Ezekiel 38 & 39) That is when a huge army from the north will attack Israel. No one will stand with Israel and the total eradication of Israel is certain... then God will defeat the attacking army in a way the shows His glory to the world. Many think this will be the beginning of the end times and the return of Jesus Christ.

Why 2012? Because many current events are falling into place to make such a thing happen. The invasion is supposed to happen after Israel gets great wealth... and huge oil deposits have recently been found in Israel. The invasion appears to be an alliance of Muslims (lead by Iran), Russia and Turkey... and that alliance is growing now. Plus a lot of events outside of Bible prophecies also seem to be coming together in 2012. For example, the most accurate calender ever created, the Mayan calendar, ends with December 21, 2012.

I'll talk about this more in a future post.

What is interesting is that in the Bible prophecies Israel stands alone. The question that immediately comes to mind is, what about America? We have stood by Israel in the past. But, according to Bible prophecy America is nowhere to be seen when Armageddon happens. Israel stands alone.

There are several theories. One is that Iran will attack the U.S. with EMP weapons launched from merchant ships. This is based on missile tests Iran has been observed conducting. An EMP weapon is a nuclear weapon that destroys electronics. This means that transportation and communication would stop working. Cars would not start. The internet would be gone. Phones would not work. Computers would no longer function (no banking, no Social Security checks). And there would be no electricity. This means the U.S. would revert to a cash/barter commerce system and paper-based communication for a minimum of a year.

But, it would not even take an EMP attack. Power magazine reports in this month's issue that a new sunspot cycle has started that will peak in 2012. The article states that solar storms can know out electric power and disrupt communications. It says, "Storms can also knock out commercial communications satellites, swamp GPS signals. Routine activities such as talking on a cell phone or getting money from an ATM machine could suddenly halt over a large part of the globe."

The year 2012 could be very interesting... or maybe not. What do you think?

God Let's You Do What You Want To Do, BUT...

We've been using the book of Jeremiah to uncover part of God's character and learn how God deals with nations. When does He bless nations and when does he curse (withdraw blessings) nations.

Does God force people to behave in a certain way? Is Christianity a religion of compulsion, that forces people to live and behave a certain way? About 2,500 years ago Babylon had conquered Israel, leaving just a remnant of the Jewish population behind. Those Jews started worshipping the Queen of Heaven, a pagan god. They refused to stop disobeying the LORD God and continued to worship the Queen of Heaven. So this is what God said:

"You and your wives have said that you will never give up your devotion and sacrifices to the Queen of Heaven, and you have proved it by your actions. Then go ahead and carry our your promises and vows to her!" - Jeremiah 44:25

If you choose to turn your back on God... if you refuse to obey God... he let's you do that. It's your choice to make and you may do as you wish. BUT, there are consequences both to you as an individual and to a nation that turns its back on God. The consequence for a nation is that God withdraws His blessing, and that brings disaster. In the case of the Jews God spoke to in Jeremiah 44:25 the consequences included "war and famine until all of you are dead." (Jeremiah 44:27)

In America today we are turning our backs on God both individually and as a nation. Individually, after our death, we all will stand before God to be judged. If you have disobeyed God in any way, the penalty is death (hell). As a nation the consequences don't come after the death of that nation, they are more immediate and may result in the death of the nation.

The Potter Does Whatever He Wants With His Pottery

In Jeremiah 18 the LORD sends Jeremiah to a shop where a potter is making pots. But the jar the potter was making did not turn out right, so the potter squashed the jar into a lump of clay and started over again. Then God said:

"...can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter's hands, so are you in my hand. If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed, but then that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned. And if I announce that that I will build up and plant a certain nation or kingdom, making it strong and great, but then that nation turns to evil and refuses to obey me, I will not bless that nation as I had said I would." - Jeremiah 18:5-10

The Cursed and The Blessed

"Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans and turn their hearts away from the LORD. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. The will live in the barren wilderness, on the salty flats where no one lives."

"But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing good fruit." - Jeremiah 17:5-8

The Fate Of Nations

God has said:

"But any nation who refuses to obey me will be uprooted and destroyed. I, the LORD, have spoken!"

Read These Words

Think about what is happening in America today and read these words from Jeremiah chapter 8. Liberal (progressive) "Christian" churches twist the meaning of scripture calling good what God says is evil. Everyone thinks they are Christian even though they ignore God, because they have listened to the teachers in America--the media, "intellectuals", science and liberal church leaders. Here is what God says:

"Why do these people keep going along their self-destructive path, refusing to turn back, even though I have warned them? I listen to their conversations, and what do I hear? Is anyone sorry for sin? Does anyone say, 'What terrible thing have I done'? No! All are running down the path of sin as swiftly as a horse rushing into battle!" - Jeremiah 8:5-7

"How can you say, 'We are wise because we have the law of the LORD,' when your teachers have twisted it so badly? These wise teachers will be shamed by exile for their sin, for they have rejected the word of the LORD." - Jeremiah 8:8,9

America turn back to the Lord! That is a cry for you individually. Listen to the word of God. Turn away from homosexual marriage and acceptance of homosexual behavior as right and good. Turn away from abortion... the sacrifice of children on the alter of the god of convenience. Turn away from divorce... the relationship between a husband and wife is the image of Jesus' relationship with the body of all believers. Turn away from fornication (sex outside of marriage). Turn away from inclusiveness that excludes God. There are many that call inclusiveness, with no limits, to be the desire of God... but they are the teachers who are twisting God's word and leading you away God. Inclusiveness is evil if it includes acceptance of sin as not being evil in God's eyes.

God's gift of salvation includes everyone. No one is excluded from this gift. If anyone accepts God's gift, it is theirs. That is the ultimate inclusiveness. But leading someone to believe they are saved and will enter heaven, when they do not desire to reject sin, is teaching a twisted gospel that leads to destruction.

400 Year Cycle - And The Time Is Now

In studying history Dr. Ralph D. Winter, the founder of the U.S. Center for World Mission, noticed what appears to be a 400 year cycle. It is a cycle in which a people group are first obedient to God; then over time they drift away from God and serve other gods; then God does something major to move His purposes forward. Dr. Winter ties this cycle into evangelism. When Christians are not sharing the good news about Jesus Christ with others, God does something that results in a dramatic spread of the gospel.

Dr. Winter has noticed that the gospel can be spread in a number of ways. For examples, believers can go out and bring the gospel to on-believers. Or, non-believers can be brought into a Christian group. An example of the latter are the Vikings. The Vikings were brutal, pagans. They invaded what we now call the British Isles and targeted monasteries and churches... because that was were the gold was. They killed the men and took the woman captive, taking them back to their homes as slaves who cared for and taught their children. What happened? The woman shared the gospel with the children of the Vikings. God's purpose was accomplished. The gospel was spread. The Vikings eventually became Christians... and became civilized.

So how does this apply to America? We are at the cusp of the 400 year cycle. God has greatly blessed America with riches beyond what any other nation has every had. What do we do with those riches? We spend more money on cosmetics than we do on missions. While missionaries give-up and remain at home because they can not raise the funds they need, we buy $100 tickets to sports events.

Which does God care about more? Who wins the next Superbowl, or the salvation of a 12 year-old girl in Russia. Which does God care about more? Whether your wife has the right shade of lipstick and matching shoes, or whether that same 12 year old girl has food today?

Where are are priorities? God knows and the time when He will act against America has already come. If we will not do His will, then He will see that it is done without us.

I Haven't Done Anything Wrong!

The nation of Israel had turned away from God and was worshiping other gods. In condemning Israel in Jeremiah 2:31 God said:

Why do my people say, "At last we are free from God! We won't have anything to do with him anymore!"

America has turned away from God and is worshiping other gods. Worshiping gods created by man, to serve man. America doesn't want anything to do with God anymore. A new god has been created who allows everyone to do whatever they want to do.

In Jeremiah 2:34 God says, "Your clothing is stained with the blood of the innocent and poor."

There are none more innocent than a new-born baby... and 1,000,000 babies are slaughtered in America every year. It's called abortion... and the ocean of blood from these innocent babies has soaked deep into our soil. This horror is ignored because a new god has been created. A god who does not consider an unborn baby to be a baby. The God of the Bible says "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb." (Jeremiah 1:5) The God of the Bible says he creates the life that grows in a woman's body... yet we allow 1,000,000 of God's creations in America to be slaughtered every year.

I spoke with a pastor recently who saw nothing wrong with abortion. After all, unwanted babies interfere with the lives of people. They are not convenient. Dear pastor, YOUR clothing is stained with the blood of the innocent.

Who do you worship? Do you worship the God of the Bible? Or do you say you worship the god of the Bible, but the reality is that you have made a god in your own image? A god (an idol) who allows sin such as abortion, homosexuality, adultery and fornication? Who do you worship?

The God Shaped Hole In Your Soul and Worshipping Idols

I don't like talking about people having a God shaped hole in their soul, although it is true. The problem is that it is not the gospel message that brings knowledge of sin and salvation through Jesus Christ. However, the hole people have in their soul drives everyone to a spiritual search... and the problem is that in America the result of that search is not a good result. Instead of finding God, Americans are finding idols and worshiping idols.

An idol does not have to be a statue made from stone or wood. An idol does not have to be a physical thing. Any time we worship something or someone other than God we are worshiping an idol. For example, Mormons have created a Jesus they like. He is nothing like the real Jesus. And even though they call him Jesus Christ and use his name in the name of their church, the Jesus they have is idol they have created. It is the same with Jehovah's Witnesses, evolutionists, and progressive Christianity. They have all created a Jesus they prefer. Instead of making themselves into the image of Jesus, they have created a Jesus in their own image... and they worship that idol.

When Jews in the Kingdom of Judah were was accused by God of worshiping idols, this is what God said in Jeremiah chapter 2. It is an accurate description of America today. Americans are seeking after every god but God:

"You say, 'That's not true! We haven't worshiped the images of Baal!' But how can you say that? Go and look in any valley in the land! Face the awful sins you have done. You are like a restless female camel desperate for a male! You are like a wild donkey, sniffing the wind at mating time? Who can restrain your lust. Those who desire you do not even need to search, for you come running them them! Why do you refuse to turn from all this running after other gods? But you say, 'Don't waste your breath, I have fallen inn love with these foreign gods, and I can't stop loving them now!'"

What can be done? The answer is the same. Repent and turn to Jesus. Not the Jesus created by you or by a church, but the Jesus of the Bible. Humble yourself. Admit you are wrong. Read your Bible and accept Jesus, just as he is.

What's Happening To America - Part 2

"so the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes." - Judges 21:25

This describes America perfectly. What is right in our own eyes is what we want. We've turned our backs on God.

Today I heard on the radio that the Oregon legislature has passed a law making homosexual "marriage" legal... although they don't call it marriage, that's what it actually is. And they passed another law creating a special category of homosexual rights. The governor has said he'll quickly sign both laws.

When we turn our backs on God, and do what is right in our own eyes, as Oregon is doing, we can expect God to withdraw part of His blessing. And that's not good.

The April-June 2007 issue of Answers Magazine (Answers in Genesis) makes an insightful observation about violence in American schools. They wrote:

"People have rejected the truth and authority of the Bible and have instead accepted evolutionary ideas like survival of the fittest, as taught in most schools. These ideas have contributed significantly to a growing sense of meaninglessness and purposelessness in society. And with this mindset in society, such senseless violence should only be expected to increase."

Abortion. Living together outside of marriage. Divorce. Adultery. Corporate greed. The growing popularity of cults and the gathering of strength in Islam.

AMERICA WAKE UP!!! REPENT!! Turn from sinning and put your trust in the Lord.

What Will It Mean For The West If Radical Islam Triumphs?

This is the title of an excellent article in the March-April 2007 issue of Good News magazine.

Although most Americans at completely ignorant, Islam makes no secret that its goal is the complete imposition of Islam on America or the complete destruction of America. They are being aided by three problems that have been identified by Dr. Daniel Pipes... pacifism, self-hatred and complacency. The article states:

"In discussing pacifism, Dr. Pipes writes of those in the west who believe that a military solution is not possible. Yet he points out, 'What were the defeats of the Axis, the United States in Vietnam, or the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, it not military solutions?"

The article continues...

"His paragraph on self-hatred illustrates a phenomenon peculiar to the West. 'Significant elements in several Western countries--especially the United States, Great Britain and Israel--believe their own governments to be repositories of evil...Self-hating Westerners have an outsized importance due to their prominent role as shapers of opinion in universities, the media, religious institutions, and the arts. They serve as the Islamists' auxiliary mujahideen.'"

That's right. We are working to defeat ourselves and turn ourselves over to a tyranny that is beyond our imagination.

There is a lot more information in this article. I highly recommend reading it. It is available online at:

Does God Bless America?

When does God bless a nation and when does God withdraw His blessings from a nation?

A nation that lives in obedience to God, will be blessed. A nation that blesses Israel, will be blessed.

Is America living in obedience to God?

No, America is up to its eyeballs in the blood of innocent children who have been murdered. In ancient times some cultures sacrificed children to their pagan gods. We read about that and are horrified. How could someone kill their children to please a god that is not real? Yet we sacrifice millions more babies than were ever sacrificed to pagan gods... killing then in honor of the god of person convenience. We apply the death penalty to an innocent child because we had a moments pleasure and it would be inconvenient to let that child live.

Yes, some babies are conceived as a result of rape. (Very, very few abortions happen as a result of rape.) So what do we do? We give the death penalty to an innocent child instead of to the rapist. One person commits rape and we kill another person who had nothing to do with that rape. Does that make sense? NO!!!

The ongoing murder of innocent children is just one reason why America no longer has God's blessing as we did in the past. People are looking to the rest of the world and saying, "The world does not approve of what we are doing. We must change what we are doing." What we should be doing is looking to God and saying, "God does not approve of what we are doing. We must change what we are doing!"
