This is one of those articles it was hard to pick a quote from because there’s so much worth repeating. The author approaches from another angle what I’ve said here before. Our problems did not begin when Obama was elected, else we would not have elected him. Our problems began in our own hearts when we turned as a nation from Yahweh and His principles. Nothing short of repentance will redeem us now.
Barack Obama is only one man. A bad man, yes, but he is a symptom more than a cause. Without millions of fawning Americans, he would just be a community agitator, vainly preaching Alinsky principles from a soapbox. Of course, he is a symptom that exacerbates the underlying problem, and symptomatic treatment — to ease immediate pain and hardship — is certainly in order. But it is only the worst of physicians who focuses only on symptoms while ignoring the cancer eating away at the patient’s midst.
I like to post interesting or currently relevant links I find while browsing. I want people to be aware of what’s going on around us. I almost skipped over this one because it wasn’t news. Why would I say that? I say that because it is exactly the kind of thing we should expect of a Democrat controlled government. What made me go back was thinking about the TEA parties.
This has been in the back of my mind since they began. Though there has always been a small vocal minority, the American people have not come out in force against the evil coming out of Washington. It was not until we began to realize that we would be personally harmed economically that we rallied. For all the rhetoric about controlling government and returning it to its constitutional boundaries the primary motivation for our sudden revolt appears to be protecting our wallets. One might say “whatever it takes,” and we certainly need to be getting upset, but it should have started a long time ago. It may well be too late now, and if our effort continues to be self-serving, it is doomed to fail.
If government were operating as it was designed by the framers of the Constitution, neither DOMA nor this sham “Respect for Marriage” act would be necessary because both would be considered outside the authority of the federal government. There is a desperate need to change the direction we are going. Stopping socialism and all that comes with it is a worthy goal, but there is a much more serious problem at the heart of these issues.
I wish we would show the same outrage over government sanctioned perversion as we do when it picks our pockets, but it’s all part of the same problem. We’re selfish, and we tend to act primarily to protect our own interests. When we come to see that socialized medicine and a skyrocketing national debt may affect us in our lifetime, suddenly government freebies don’t look so good. We get riled up. But where is the same passion when pre-born children are murdered? Where is the passion when the God given family structure that makes for a strong and healthy society is under attack? Where is the revulsion when evil is glorified and good is condemned? It doesn’t affect us directly, or maybe it would even take something away from us that we want, so we do nothing.
So while conservatives and pragmatists rage against Obama’s economic agenda, evil marches forward unheeded. Yes, we need to stop the socialist agenda, but we need to do something else much more urgently. We need to repent. we need to turn our hearts back toward the God who gave us this great nation so that true reform may be possible. If we remain a selfish and apathetic people who can only be stirred when poked with a big stick, evil will triumph and the country we know will cease to exist.
Nearly 100 members of the U.S. House are working in lockstep with the Obama administration to try to eliminate protections for traditional marriage in the United States with the “Respect for Marriage Act” that has just been introduced in Congress.
“What do Obama and God have in common? Neither has a birth certificate. How do they differ? God does not think he’s Obama. And there’s another difference between God and Obama, and that is that liberals love Obama. We have some more differences for you here between President Obama and God. God asks for only 10 percent of your money. God gives you freedom to live your life as you choose. God’s plan to save us is actually written down for people to read.” –radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh
