“And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.
It’s been said that America lost its innocence on 9/11 – never before being attacked on our own soil. I beg to differ. I believe we have been under a three prong attack from within for generations; our faith, our family, our finances – and it’s felt at every level.
Our faith, most critical of the three because it makes the other two an easier target – is being stripped away by stealth. We are being fed revised history to hide the providence of God in the founding of this country. Our children are taught evolution as if it were fact, when in fact it’s a theory – and Creation is said to be a fairytale while science is still trying to catch up.
What defines a family is becoming more obscure by the day. We have even created laws (as if that miraculously changes DNA) that tell us that the unnatural is natural – and we are bigots if we question it. By the way, saying a child needs a mother and father is God ordained, natural, and about as scientifically factual as you can get. What happened to common sense?
Financially speaking, there is nothing wrong with wanting the American dream – as long as it doesn’t become an idol. Unless the Lord builds it you labor in vain (Psalm 127:1). I speak particularly to my brothers on this point – our country became a nation of consumers rather than producers. Men who don’t know who they are in Christ, whose faith was stripped away or is weak – can’t lead the way God intended. Feminism of today is a symptom of how far men have been removed from our purpose. The gap created a vacuum that the enemy was happy to fill.
