This is just a note or reflection of what has been happening in the aftermath of the terrorists attacks on America. It seems like everything is being blamed but we have ignored a very important reality. This nation was founded on Godly principles but very early we turned to be a nation of self seekers and sin entered in. Yes we need to pray for this nation. We need to pray that as a nation we would  repent of 46 million aborted babies. We need  to repent for exporting 95% of the pornography to the world. We need to repent  for calling homosexuality an alternate lifestyle and realize that a soul for eternity is at stake. We need to repent for preaching a soft (no commitment Gospel) to a sin hardened and sick world. We need to repent for ignoring  the cries of the needy  and  making merchandise of the poor while heaping treasures to self. God has spoken through His word and  through the signs that are all  around us.

Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. Folks these things are coming and are already at the door. Let me share with you a psalm with such a promise for us.  Psalms 24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

We as a nation need to repent and turn from our ways and turn to God with clean hands.

 When did it begin to happen?

Florida the land of sunshine and sandy beaches. You and the bank have a nice home on a solid foundation with a pool in the back yard. This is going to be a great Saturday to just rest and relax and then your wife says *let*s take the kid*s and go to the mall*. You back the car out of the garage and load the family into the car and take a proud look at your house as you drive down the street. You return three hours later to find that the top of your house is below street level and you say How did this happen. What you should ask is When did it begin to happen? You have just been introduced to a feature of the Florida landscape called the SINKHOLE syndrome. Your whole house is now in the basement. Tiny streamlets of acid water have slowly eroded the area under your safe and secure home and then one-day it falls. When did it begin to happen?

The foundation of this nation was established with God as the very brick and mortar that put it together we are a blessed people because of that foundation.

The message is today screaming out from God’s word that the foundations for this nation are severally under attack not from without our borders but from inside right where we live. The threat is much greater then weapons of mass destruction. It is much greater Osama bin Ladin and Saddam Hussein and the North Korean nuclear threat. It is a cancer that has been eating away for many many years. Psalm 11: 2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. 3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
So what is the problem? What can be worse then Communism, Atheism , Nazism, and all the rest of the isms? What is this thing that has made us a nation that has murdered forty-six million babies and called it legal? What is this thing that allowed us to export 95% of the pornography to the rest of the world under the mislabel of free speech and yet will not allow prayer in school.?

          The foundation that has been superimposed on this nation of people is HUMANISM. It*s not such a big word but when we break it down it says a whole lot. The definition for Humanism is very simple MILLIONS OF YEARS= MAN IS AUTHORITY. Man is god is what the text books say. The bible says in six days GOD IS AUTHORITY.  

          To destroy Christianity you have to destroy the foundation of God*s word. When The authority of the word is removed then we have the following. Family breakups, Abortion, Racism, Euthanasia, Pornography, and then Homosexual behavior. Tolerance is a word that has been used recently to justify any type of behavior and if you question any of these things you are labeled an Intolerant Christian. We need to be intolerant and disturbing Christians where sin is concerned. We also need to be full of the love of God and reaching out to the lost. We are in a battlefield not a recreation room in our Christian walk.

          Folks, the problems above and the social ills of this nation cannot be solved without going back to the foundation stone of  Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  This sounds too simple to work but my friend it does.

          Just answer the following questions and it may give you an idea of where you stand.

#1 Is abortion  OK if the mother is in danger?

#2 Is Homosexuality a genetic problem?

#3 Are Love and tolerance the best responses to a problem?

#4 Is Genetic engineering a way to solve birth defects?

#5 Should the bible be the only guide for determining the rule of
     law in America?

#6 Is Pornography OK as long as it is limited to adults only?

#7 Is Euthanasia a humane way to end suffering?

          Your answers to these questions will determine if your position is secular or bible based.
