People say “Why is God turning His back on us?”

He didn’t.  We turned our backs on Him and this is what a world without Him looks like.

I received that in an email the other day and had to post it here because I so believe this is what’s happening.   Yet, I was at a Bible Study retreat yesterday, amid gorgeous trees, a very old mansion, a lovely chapel, sun shining, azaleas blooming, wonderful food, amazing friends, fabulous talk, other fun events, and we knew God was there with us.  No doubt about it.

And God is mocked so much in America….who would have thought we could survive without that which made our people and our country honest and good?

faithfulness

“Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;”  Deuteronomy 7:9

Not much more I could add to that.  But you are more than welcome to.  There are many verses about our faithfulness to God, please tell us one you like.

Happy Sunday!

    To “mock” God is to “mock” our very human existence; a dangerous and degenerating practice. Sadly, such is on display under the misnomer known as “Progressive”.

    Ahhh…the media wants us to know what a very faithful woman Hillary Clinton is. And I would never doubt anybody’s heart, but I believe we show our faith through our fruits. Not from cheating, lying, conniving, hurting people…. Maybe it’s just me. (but it isn’t)
    Sadly, I put on TV today and it was on CNN, where Bill Maher was telling (far left) Zakarias how horrible Trump supporters are “They just don’t have the facts….there are all the terrible things about Trump compared to Hillary’s one thing…email….all the rest of Hillary stories aren’t true, they just aren’t” mhmm
    Obama called Trump supporters “in the swamp” and worse, Bill Clinton said “they’re like me, good ol’ boys” (i.e. dumber than stumps), and we’re deplorable, according to Hillary. amazing.

    JMB; Very well put…and very sad, indeed!

    The troubling thought is when judgment is cast upon those who reject Him, it may also affect those
    who are around the sinners. Sodom and Gomorrah apparently had no believers, according to my recollection, because God was asked “what if we find 100 believers (then 50, etc), kind of bargaining with God, and God said if any were found he would spare the cities. He didn’t, so apparently there weren’t any worthy souls there. Hmmm. Are we what God considers TRUE BELIEVERS? That’s the troubling question.

    Great reminder. I was watching Stephan Molineux’s video on Cultural Marxism today and, even though he is an atheist, I think this is in line with the conversation b/c it talks a lot about moral relativism, deconstruction of everything to the point of not making sense anymore, etc… To me God is the foundation to avoid all of this. To avoid the arrogance of humanity in this great universe, which leads to our downfall.

    FB, then according to Molineux’s thoughts, he really can’t be an atheist, can he? Maybe he doesn’t even realize it yet himself!

    Faithful:
    From our study last year: Is. 25:1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things,plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

    and a future hope: Rev. 19:11 ¶ Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.

    God is indeed faithful. Even before there was an Adam and man sinned, He wrote the story of redemption in the stars, and He has been keeping his promise. He is faithful to to be our stronghold, to BE forever, to be holy, just and righteous, our refuge, our chosen portion, our rock and fortress, our shield and horn of salvation, strength, light, upright, all that is good and can make us so we do not want. Now WHO ELSE can accomplish that last item, hmm?

    AND Israel is going back to lamb sacrifices…prophesy, anyone!??

    FB and Mal, I absolutely adore the idea of an atheist understanding moral relativism and deconstruction of everything to the point of not making sense anymore, We need more like Molineux because many people are more inclined to listen to an atheist than a Christian on some of these points……

    My faith ebbs and wanes, but I will NEVER believe God doesn’t have His hand on this country, didn’t found it, and doesn’t want us to stay near Him…and “Just and righteous” ourselves, as Baysider so beautifully suggests.

    In church today, the amazing young pastor talked about how it’s not under our own strength we can bless others, only through Him……..
    I read an article recently about how MANY women are talking about how much they regret having had their children…more and more and more women. I had the feeling that it’s when we don’t feel or don’t accept that love of God that we have very little affection to pass on…….even to our children. A horrifying state, but one we’ve found ourselves in since America did turn her back on Him.

    WONDERFUL comments, all…thanks so much.

    Basically the point of Molineux, which is highly logical, is that moral relativism is moot because using its own principles, it can also be de(con)structed through the same relativism. The progressives are trying to establish an absolute dogma when they themselves fight against all absolute truths. Principle of recursiveness! 🙂

    Z, I too believe God had a hand in creating America. However, in the direction we have been going, eliminating God, the Bible, and even prayers in schools, he can also destroy it, too. Its our choice ’cause I don’t believe He really wants to, but if we keep this s- – – up………?

    Mal, exactly right…………how long will He hold out?

    Even if you’re an atheist, you’ve got to see the difference of when most people went to church OR synagogue and what’s happening now,right? People were decent, they knew better….kids would lower the volume if you asked them to turn the radio down, now they’ll give you the finger!
    Do I blame that all on not being religious? HECK NO, but there is something to CONSCIENCE and I think it IS a spark of God in us, and I believe when the Left started with the “If it feels good, DO it” and other BS, we started going down a really slippery slope.

    I used to sing that wonderful old tune ANYTHING GOES and I remember thinking “When anything goes, EVERYTHING goes” and I think that’s right, don’t you?

    As i pointed out in an earlier blog, the “roaring twenties” was that way, John. In fact, ANYTHING GOES was a popular song during that time (1920’s) but we returned to being prim and proper by the early ’30’s. I guess what goes around really does come around after all, huh?
