Every now and then, you read something profound that answers pondered questions, only to discover the answer is beyond belief. A quick rewind takes us back in time to Moses and the children of Israel. They are in the wilderness and God is giving them what will become known as “The Law.” The very first thing God told them was that he was a jealous God, and they should have no other God before him ( Exodus 20:2, Deuteronomy 5:6). We are firmly aware of this warning from God as we struggle in 2019 to refrain from allowing “things” in our lives to become gods to us, and ultimately take the place of God. However, what I read brought this entire thought to life on a different dimension. Allow me to explain. It an effort to understand the religious climate in America, Bruce Willis (yes Mr. Die Hard himself) stated “What America is witnessing is not the death of God, just the birth of many gods.” Did you catch it? America the land of the free and the home of the brave whose constitution was framed by men who were believers in God (for those who did not practice the Christian faith, they still accepted the principles of God) as they structured America as we know it. That America is leaving, and now the trend is a new America. Former President Barack Obama lit the fuse in 2006 in his keynote speech entitled “Building A Covenant For America.” In this speech the President stated “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation. At least now just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of non-believers. Today the movement is away from a knowledge and respect for God, and as a result we have fallen into trap of Judges 21:25 “In those days, there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes. Continued next week. Blessings.
