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.
