America is in big trouble. In our nation, we have political programs on radio and television that tip-toe around religious issues for fear of losing market-share. And worse, on Christian radio and television programs, most pastors refuse to provide biblical application to political issues and campaign races.
As a people, we have no problem discussing any kind of sexual depravity in detail, but to speak of politics in the context of religious faith that we dare not do. This cowardly aversion to examining the important matters of the day under the bright light of biblical truth may well be the reason we stand at the precipice of national disaster.
In 2008 and 2012, 95% of black Protestants and nearly half of all self-defined Christians voted for a presidential candidate whose eligibility for office is still unproven, who described a pregnancy resulting from a willing act of sex as being “punished with a baby,” who destroyed the best health care system in the world, who has given the world’s top terrorist state the Islamic State of Iran the financial resources to produce nuclear weapons, and who habitually violates the U.S. Constitution through executive orders and circumvents the properly-enacted laws of the people. Meanwhile, the people are ominously silent.
We cannot rely on our national media to tell us the truth about events of the day. The networks intentionally bury stories like the rape of a 15-year-old boy by Obama fundraiser and homosexual activist, Terry Bean, and the rapes of two women by former Democrat Congressional aide, Donnie Rae Williams. They refuse to report the long list of criminal convictions by cop-killers like Tyrone Howard in New York City, or the deaths of our citizens like Kathryn Steinle, by illegal immigrants who have been deported multiple times only to be released by sanctuary cities like San Francisco.

Nearly every new network television drama contains a perfunctory lesbian or homosexual encounter. Local stations have begun to omit the immigration status of child sex offenders and drunk drivers who kill our people. Our Supreme Court justices and federal court judges do not respect the U.S. Constitution that they swore an oath to protect and uphold. If government officials won’t enforce our laws, how can we expect our fellow citizens to obey them?
We currently have a presidential candidate who is known to have violated U.S. espionage laws and whose negligence may have caused the death of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya during her term. Nevertheless, the network media continues to report on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign as if none of these things matters. Meanwhile, most pastors refuse to point out the glaring fact that one of our national political parties has devoted itself to promoting and defending every kind of evil imaginable.
How can people who claim to be Christians and attend churches each Sunday deny their confessions of faith on the first Tuesday in November? How does someone who calls himself a Christian, cast a vote for a politician who supports Planned Parenthood with it’s harvesting of fetal organs for sale and the ACLU in its crusade to erase every hint of religious practice from public view?
How does a Christian vote for a candidate who offers credibility to the Palestinian Authority which is run by the terrorist group, Hezbollah, and who seeks to punish Israel to whom every Christian owes a debt? How does a Christian vote for people who defend a failing and ungodly public education system which lies to their children teaching them evolution as factual in the absence of any real scientific evidence, indoctrinates them into all forms of sexual perversity and denies the unmistakable influence of Christianity in the formation of this country? How does a Christian vote for a candidate who supports the right kill the unborn up to the moment of natural birth as well as the aged who are considered inconvenient?
Some say ignorance is to blame while others point to arrogance or laziness, but none of these is a defense. For the past several decades, America has been on the wrong side of history rushing headlong toward the abyss. The events of our time portend a sordid and depressing tragedy that, without radical repentance occurring now, will certainly end in the triumph of evil over righteousness and result in our own destruction as a nation. Woe to us, Americans, hypocrites!
