So...it's been almost a week since the sad report of our president receiving a 2nd term and given the opportunity to continue his downward spiral plan for America. As I've said before, I wasn't happy about either candidate, but at least Romney had the experience and the passion to start the process of setting American right financially and desired to pass laws that would help us on a moral level.
I can't count the people with whom I've spoken who said they voted for Obama solely because they couldn't bring themselves to vote for a non-Christian. What?!? So, instead, they voted for a man who "claims" Christianity, yet who is proud to say the Muslim prayers touch his soul and are the most beautiful thing on earth? Nevermind the reports that he's actually a foreign national and not an American citizen. But that's a whole other issue.
It saddened me last week when a man with morals, principles, and character lost to a man who supports gay marriage, abortion (even up to the point of birth), and a welfare mentality. But it saddens me more when people (and even bonafide Christians!) voted for Obama because is "said" he's a Christian, yet there isn't a single shred of evidence in his life that shows this.
Call me crazy, but I've always believed the proof is in the pudding, or the fruit will showcase the type of tree. Sorry, but Obama is NOT a Christian. I'll even go so far as to say he's a Muslim in secret with the desire to eliminate the one true God from America. He has an agenda to discredit America while doing everything he can to bring as many American citizens under government control/dependency as he can, thereby shifting us into a socialist instead of a capitalist country.
Our freedoms are being stripped away one by one, and far too many are sitting back, letting it happen.
Now, more than ever, those of us who truly ARE Christians (in our lives, our faith, and our beliefs, not just our words) need to bathe our country in prayer. We can't simply sit idly by and allow evil to take control. We've sat back long enough and allowed immoral behavior to become commonplace in our families, our children, and our neighbors. Families are falling apart, marriage is being redefined, babies are being murdered, the sacred sexual relationship--designed for husbands and wives--is being celebrated as a "try-it-before-you-buy-it" buffet smorgasbord, and immorality is favored over taking a moral stance.
It's OUR turn to take a stand for what's right and not let the "politically correct" sway us or cause us to sacrifice our values simply because our culture has decided to embrace the "well it's ok for them even if it's not ok for me" mentality. Right and wrong has been pushed aside for fifty shades of gray when it comes to morality. If we truly love our country and the one true God who blessed it from the start, we need to stop being doormats and start pushing back. If we don't stand up for something, we'll fall for anything, and that's sadly where this once-blessed nation has gone.
2 Chronicles 7:14 should be our daily guide. "...and if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land..."
