We Are Blind.

21 Mar

We are a country that is blind.

We are blind to our transgressions against God and our fellow men.

We are a country that denies God.  We deny God, who is, in fact, Our Creator.

Those who wish to deny God have made unsuccessful (thank God!) attempts to change our national motto “In God we trust.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/02/us/house-of-representatives-affirms-in-god-we-trust-motto.html.

We deny the fact that actions have consequences, and that ultimately, we are accountable to God for our actions.  We live by the motto “ignorance is bliss.”

We are a country that is blind to our most valuable possessions – the people themselves.  Where has the Golden Rule gone? 

We are a country that speaks of “care of the poor” yet we destroy our most vulnerable members.  (The Unborn through abortion.)  

We are a country that “don the robes of kings” yet “waller in the mire of pigs.”  (We go out of our way to be up-to-date with vehicles, clothing and technology (cell phones, ipads, flatscreens, video games, etc.) yet sell our souls to impurity and lust with sexually promiscuous lifestyles and pornography.)

We are a country that feeds ourselves our own lies.  We want happy families, yet we promote homosexuality and infidelity (which actually set the children in these situations up for emotional scarring and dysfunctional lives)  Is it any wonder that divorces and cheating are the most common headlines of magazines and news websites and commonplace premises for movies and books?

We are a country that desires wealth, fineries, and business success in the free market, yet punish those who dare to attain that goal.  We are a country build upon the industry and genius of entrepreneurs, yet our current government administration is working their hardest to limit (via over-taxation and the HHS Mandate) those who would dare to attempt to gain their own success.

We are a country that wants to be impermeable against any who would do it harm, yet “crack down” on ourselves for weapon ownership, whether it be guns, knives or the like.  (Do you realize how much gun sales have gone up in the last ten years?)  Check it out here: http://www.sacbee.com/2012/12/27/5079151/california-gun-sales-increase.html  and here: http://www.wjla.com/articles/2013/01/virginia-gun-sales-rose-to-record-highs-in-2012-83695.html

We are a country that wants everything for nothing.  We want nice homes, healthy kids, financial security, trustworthy and reliable healthcare, but we aren’t willing to do an honest days’ work for anything.  Government handouts anyone???  Where has the principal of “do an honest days’ work for an honest days’ pay” gone?

We are a country that has lost its sense of dignity.  We deny that we are truly sons and daughters of the Most High King.  We are severely blind.

 

It is true that our Country, America the Beautiful, is blind.  

While this is the case, we do know that Truth prevails.

 God is in charge.  

We must do our part to open the eyes of the blind.

  

We know that we are  in a culture war that is unprecedented in our country.  

We have been blinded by our own foolishness, and we have much repair to do.

 

 

We can attain success in this culture war by living and speaking TRUTH.

Research history – history repeats itself! 

  Know your facts.  Speak up and speak loud.  This is akin to the adage “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.”

The better informed you are, the better prepared you will be helping America overcome its blindness.

 

Encourage friends and family to frequent reception of the Sacraments.  

Time spent with Jesus never hurt anyone.  

 

We are blind, but our blindness can be remedied.

“Be not afraid.  I go before you always.  Come follow Me.”  – Jesus Christ, our Sovereign King
