Has God Forsaken America?

I was listening to Focus on the Family tonight. They were playing back a tape from the National Prayer Breakfast a couple weeks ago. John McArthur preached that day about God forsaking America because it is embracing immorality.

At the end of the program they also played a brief clip from an assembly at Boulder High School in Boulder, Colorado. The school had called in psychologists from UCLA and the like to talk to the students about sex and drugs. But it wasn’t your typical “don’t do drugs” kind of talk. Absurdly, these so-called professionals actually encouraged the teens to do drugs and have sex. They told them it’s okay to do these things as long as they do them “responsibly.” They encouraged them to have a good time because these things “aren’t wrong” and “they’re going to do it anyways.” They even encouraged them to experiment with same-sex relations, as if it were part of a normal person’s sexual journey. During a Q and A time, a girl got up and asked if it was okay to have sex with someone you know doesn’t love you, and the expert said “Yes.” The crowd was hooting and hollering and cheering through this whole thing.

“For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:24-32).

This is the evidence, John McArthur says, that God has forsaken America.

  3. There is so much crime, not only on our streets but in our corporate offices,financial institutions. The financial crises were not experience wasn’t caused by a marxist! America is still filled with racial hatred! Compare that to Marxist idelology! Our current president did not create the financial and social mess we are experiencing at this time in our history. We must come together as a nation. If we continue to divide ourselves by political parties, racial identity– how can we not fail? We are one country and one people! In God we must trust!
