So Much Hatred In The World

Published:

It's so sad that we cannot turn on the tv anymore without hearing all the bad news of mass killings, most of the people who are killed never saw it coming. They had so much to live for and a young, angry, man trying to draw attention to the ways he felt mistreated by society. Once again, a man, angry at the world, has ended his life in a hail of gunfire, taking with him innocent victims. Which is why we have to live our lives as if everyday on earth may be our last.

When a Nation Turns Its Back on God

2 Chronicles 33

Hezekiah was a god-fearing king who brought about reformation among the Israelites. His son Manasseh, however, was an evil ruler. He had watched his father walk with God and live according to Scripture. Yet he chose to ignore the Lord.

Manasseh worshipped false gods, even to the point of sacrificing his sons by fire in order to praise Molech. He practiced much evil—including witchcraft and sorcery— and led Israel astray, thereby provoking God to anger. The king, along with the people, paid a high price for his rebellion.

This story illustrates the Lord’s intolerance of a nation’s disregard toward Him. Now consider our country. We, too, are a nation that pushes God aside—one that has turned away from the only true God and embraced idols. Perhaps these aren’t statues of stone, but we worship money, sports ability, fame, and reputation, to name a few.

The United States of America was founded on biblical principles with the intent to guarantee freedom of worship. But over time, we have removed the Lord from many aspects of public life. Prayer in schools, for instance, was deemed unconstitutional. What was once a “nation under God” has turned into a country that tolerates a growing number of sins and yet belittles absolute truth.

If a nation turns its back on the Lord, His judgment is inevitable unless the people repent and make Him Lord once again. As believers, our responsibility is to pray that God would draw the heart of our country back to Himself—and to help the gospel and truth spread through our land.

We as a nation have turned our backs on religion an I believe it can be totally contributed to GREED. The government has turned away from what is right and what is wrong to: How much can I give you for your vote>
When diversity started to fill the USA, the government started looking the other way. Now, look at the USA.. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for diversity, but this is the USA and we live by OUR laws. When they came to our Country they should have been told this and if they weren't going to abide by them, then don't let the door hit you in the rear on the way out.
Don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in, because our elected officials can't, they've already sold their souls........
