Btw you need to get out and meet people and stop watching the news so much. There are huge numbers of good people in this nation..... you just won't hear of them in the media... we've met hundreds upon hundreds of them on our travels across the Nation from sea to see and Mexico to and including Canada. The only place we ddidn't find a lot of good folks was in Washington DC. I would agree that that place is basically evil.... but it has been from the very start.
Go out and meet people......and you will learn they usually fall into one or two major groups;
- those who are fully aware of the insinuation of a corrupt bureaucracy into the core of their lives...
- and those who are unaware of anything in the world outside their reflection in the bathroom mirror.
The rest of the population are being carried along by the winds of fortune and are either not aware of it or helpless to even define what is happening to them.
"The American people have no idea what is happening to them."
The first group are those who use their heads and hearts for something other than self-absorbed philosophy. They know what is, in fact, going on, who is causing the dilemma and what the ends of the situation lead to. It's not a good end, by the way.
* Teachers and parents of K - 12 are deep into heart rending dialogue about governmental influence in the systematic training of their kids. It's not a happy situation.
* Local citizens are alarmed at the rise in police brutality - or the lack of police protection at all depending on where you live. Americans are arming themselves at a prodigious rate, and for good reason. There's no longer any faith in justice or in the ability of police to do their duty for the community.(1)
* Farmers and those who work in factories (there are still a few left in America) are constantly having to deal with new, more restrictive, Federal regulations.
* Persons in the health care industry are being deluged by a landslide of new, and may I say idiotic, rules for remittances (the life blood of any office or hospital)(2)
I could go on and on - waste management companies (garbage & sewer) who are struggling with ways to be compliant with regulations that only make things more difficult and expensive, the fishing industry (I personally know professional scrimp fisherman who are having trouble - not with netting the tasty little critters but with the jack boot of Uncle Sam on their necks)
The issue here isn't about 'good people' in America. It's about the petty tyrants and dictators our present system encourages. Everyone with a brain is suffering under it's heel and knows it.
It's about an entire population yielding to the immorality of abortion, the outlawing of prayer and public celebration of God, of the adoption of the sodomite agenda and the continuation of American military aggression (and intelligence gathering) throughout the globe.
And it's going to get worse because America has rejected God. That's the base reason for our troubles......but no one wants to admit it or do anything about it.
IF GOD DOES NOT JUDGE AMERICA HE WILL HAVE TO APOLOGIZE TO SODOM AND GOMORRAH.
and that's just me, hollering from the choir loft...
(1)The Law Enforcement Officer is under no obligation to protect a citizen.In Warren v. District of Columbia (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981),the federal court stated that a LEO has no duty to protect a citizen.In most cases of crime today, police officers show up to document what has already happened, not to prevent or stop crime.(2)I'm not referring to Obamacare here.(3)There are a whole new series of regulations coming down the pipe, which threaten to overwhelm doctor's offices, clinics and hospitals with their petty requirements. It's all in the name of Medicare remittance. Don't believe me? Talk to your doctor. You'll get an earful I guarantee it.(3) The Affordable Health Care Act - is neither affordable nor adequate for those of low income. Talk to those who need it. I mean real people, not media pundits.
In the past three years we have traveled by car and boat from New York to California and Mexico to Canada and every state inbetween.... and even Hawaii and Alaska...... and from the thousands of people we've met I would disagree with your views of the general public of the US conpared to Sodom and Gomorrah.
We had to move the Bible studies meeting some days on our last cruise because the room wasn't big enough for all the people.
The general public will suffer the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah whether they be Christian or no. Take a look at history. A looooong look. There were Christians in every fallen evil empire from the Confederate States in America to the NAZIfied empire of Europe in the 1930s and 1940s.
No one can pursue an honest and forthright study of scripture and deny that God defines and judges wickedness. The problem with many Americans is that they think they are somehow excused from judgment, that wickedness is somehow waived by God - THAT AMERICA HAS A LICENSE TO SIN.
We do not, sir. We never will. All nations, including America are held accountable for their deeds be they good or evil. And America today is evil - more and more so each day.
Enjoy your Bible studies, by the way. How long will it be before they are declared illegal by our own government? Go to the Barnabus Fund web site and look at the news section. The persecution of Christians is growing at an alarming rate. All that must be done for evil to grow is for good men to do nothing. You can continue to stick your head in the sand. The darkness there will not hide the truth much longer. The truth is .....
the good men of America have done nothing. Therefore......
IF GOD DOES NOT JUDGE AMERICA, HE WILL HAVE TO APOLOGIZE TO SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

Where in our society are men being encouraged to be good? Good fathers? Good husbands? Good neighbors? Good role models? Good leaders? You won't any find encouragement anywhere.
The same questions can be asked of our women as well.
What are we being taught? Who is teaching us?
