Confirmation that America is Doomed, and Why

I was an eye-witness to a discussion that pretty much confirms what a lot of us already knew about the cultural/spiritual tides sweeping the nation known as the United States of America.

An individual in church leadership was given opportunity for political commentary. He began by mentioning that the last five occupants of the White House all received criticism. Reagan was deserving of it, of course, though he wasn’t quite the Antichrist he was portrayed to be among leftists and their useful idiots.

(What was conveniently and predictably ignored was the cross-spectrum improvement of black living standards/financial status during Reagan’s peacetime economic boom; and the decline of same for blacks during Obama’s Emporer-Has-No-Clothes economic train wreck.)

After this attempt at a magnanimous non-partisan monologue, the church leader went on to tell us that the criticism of Obama is so intense that even if he “walked on water” or healed a dying girl covered with tumors, his mean-spirited detractors would still “demonize” him.

I was tempted to ask for evidence to back this up. What great, legal, ethical act has Obama performed that he was criticised for?

If Obama obeyed the law (as he swore to do twice with all the nation as witnesses) and secured the border, I would praise him for that. But he not only refuses to do his job, but he brings suit against a besieged state that tries to protect its own borders in the absence of integrity from Washington.

If Obama kept his promise to cut the national debt in half during his first term, I would have praised him. Instead, he nearly doubled it.

If Obama had demonstrated leadership while the Americans he sent to BenGhazi were under attack, and used the assets at his disposal to rescue them, I would have praised him. Instead he refused to act, skipped all the intelligence briefings, flew off to Vegas, and lied about the whole debacle multiple times. Then lied about the lie he told.

There’s Obamacare and the lies he told to foist that on us (and the lies about the lies after he was proven to be lying). There’s the little matter of getting caught committing treason with the Russians. There’s his utter contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers that is part of the fundamentals of our government he swore to uphold.

I could go on, but what’s the point? Either your eyes are open, or you’re blinded. As Mark Twain said, it’s a lot easier to deceive someone than convince them they’ve been deceived. The deception is already so powerful, it has all the earmarks of a spiritual “powerful delusion, that they should believe the lie.” (2 Thess. 2:11)

We have become so racially polarized as a nation, that for about 95% of African-Americans, the most important factor is how they believe their own demographic will fare under a particular decision-maker. (Not how they will actually fare, but what they believe.)

With the exception of myself, everyone in the discussion was an echo chamber for the church leader’s assertions. I could have debated against the groupthink. Maybe I could have given the argument of my life. It wouldn’t have mattered.

These were intelligent men. They likely have all the soundbites and talking points memorized. In fact, I know they do–I’ve heard it from them. And it’s not like they lack the ability to reason on every topic. Just certain ones.

It comes down to the simple core issue that almost everyone on both sides overlooks, ignores or denies.

Obama hates America. The evidence is everywhere you look. You don’t try to “fundamentally transform” something you love. Or even like. Or are willing to tolerate. You only fundamentally transform something that is utterly antithetical to what you believe is correct.

And the church leader, and other guys I observed, hate America, too. They’ve been taught by the government schools, Hollywood and the establishment media all their lives: America is evil, racist, etc. and needs to be fundamentally transformed. When Obama (or Clinton or any other politician) strikes another blow that injures America, they see it as a good thing. Just a step or two down from healing a little girl covered with tumors or “walking on water,” I guess.

This struck home during another point of the discussion when the church leader opined that censorship of the Internet is a good thing (yet another illegal dictate Obama happens to be pushing, in the form of “Net Neutrality”).

Here is the operating assumption in microcosm. Freedom is bad. Consolidation of power into the hands of an oligarchy is good. This is what Obama believes. This is what his supporters believe (at least they believe it when Democrats are in power). This is what Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mao believed. It is what the devil himself believes.

The reason given for the advantage of a state-controlled Internet was that teenage boys can watch porn. Clever way to sell it, because who would want to take a position that could be portrayed as supporting pornography for teens?

But again, the ability to reason has been disabled, here. Utterly crucial questions have obviously not been asked: Who is going to decide what gets censored and what doesn’t? Who will the individuals who decide be accountable to? Do you really imagine that this censorship will occur in a fashion that is in any way related to a Biblical worldview?

Once freedom of speech and thought are subject to regulation by the state, the Internet will be as uniformly hostile to Christianity as every other matter controlled by government is becoming. But porn will continue thriving like always. The enemy doesn’t mind sexual sin, at all. It’s quite useful to him, in fact. But independent thought–that is a threat slowing down the march back to Babel.

America is the lynchpin. Global government can’t be achieved with a strong, prosperous, sovereign and free republic here as evidence against the great deception.

The liberty ship is sinking. And a whole lot of people in the Church see it as a victory. I hear them cheering and fiddling all around me.

I never doubted the existence of God. I thank my parents for that. Even so, most of my life could be summed up as a shameful rebellion against Him. Still, even when living like a reprobate heathen, I still occasionally studied the Bible. I found it just as confusing and seemingly contradictory as most people, yet I could also discern there was power in it, and truth beyond my finite reckoning. After finally admitting to my Creator, "You are God and I am not," my study of the Bible became a bit more intensive. I have learned much, and will learn much more. I plan on sharing some of that here.
