According God’s Word in Proverbs 14:34 it states “Righteousness makes a nation great, but sin diminishes any people.”
On November 6th 2012 we as a Nation are about to make a decision that can either help turn this Nation back toward or away from Righteousness. This Nation was made Great because of its stance for Righteousness from its founding.
What is Righteousness you may ask, well Webster Dictionary defines it like this, “1: acting in accord with divine or moral law : free from guilt or sin 2a: morally right or justifiable <a righteous decision> b: arising from an outraged sense of justice or morality <righteous indignation>
Our forefathers believed that a Righteous stance was needed as we left the tyranny of the rule of the English Empire in such that they penned such ideas in what became our Constitution. But today we have blood on our hands as a Nation, the sins of this Nation has made us vulnerable to not being great. It is true that God is Love and our Father in Heaven is a loving, caring God. But sin indeed has a diminishing effect on any Nation, large or small.
What sins you may ask, there are two very big sins that come to mind that cause our Nations greatness to diminish.
Our forefathers knew the importance to establish laws that protected people in pursuit of wellbeing and happiness.
The first big sin is we kill unwanted babies yearly in this Nation since the passage of Roe vs. Wade. See the actual statistics at the following link: http://www.numberofabortions.com/ and yet God still Loves but His desire is that we turn back to what is right so we can be Great. The Word of God says that you should not kill (ie – premeditatively murder) but we do this every day by killing unwanted children. But God says in Psalm 127:4-6 of children this: “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”
The second is the sin of homosexuality, God says in his Word the following in regards to this issue. In Leviticus 18:22 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 20:13 – If a man also lies with mankind, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. In Deuteronomy 22:5 – The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. And finally in Romans 1:18 through 1:32 – “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Now please my friends do not hear what I am not saying, I too am a sinner saved by Grace. I am not saying I have arrived to perfection. I too stumble from time to time. The Father still loves all mankind despite their actions, but there will be a consequence to their actions. All I am saying is Only God can judge people. But we can know his Word and Will. But we cannot continue to be habitual sinners and ignore the very decisions our forefathers made that made us a Great Nation and expect to continue to be Great, because the sin will cause us to diminish as a Nation. We must turn back to Righteousness or I dare think were we will head in the not to distance future.
There are two main candidates that are in the forefront to be the President for the next four years. You my friends must decide who of these two can turn us back toward Righteousness. I believe that if we turn back to Righteousness that we will be a Great and Prosperous Nation as we were before the economic collapse. We cannot continue to live off the past prosperity it will diminish if we do not turn back to Righteousness.
Please Vote according to Righteousness this November 6, 2012. And remember God loves you despite any short comings you may have, he merely hates the sins because they bring separation from Him. He is a Holy God.
