It used to be this country was predicated on values that were centered on God, hard work, and common sense. Church attendance was common and the people attending likely to believe in God and uphold the values instilled through association with God and godly people. The culture was drastically different as well – family meant something and there was more accountability amongst family members. This tighter knit family was a source of love and acceptance as well as knowing that you were accountable for your actions with your family. People had a desire to not let their family down, to do what was right. There was another reason as well – shame, no one wanted to be shamed in front of their family for their actions. Shame has walked out the door – locked and bolted it; replaced by “if it feels good do it”.
Our country has changed immensely and not for the better. The very fabric of our country, our culture, and our values – what we believe in has done a complete 360-degree turn-around. The Christian values this country was founded on have been literally tossed out the proverbial window. God has no place in this country as a whole; even the churches themselves are contributing to our countries decadent slide into hell by throwing out sections of the Bible they choose not to adhere to – or desire to ignore or reinterpret to say what the church desires those words to say. God did warn us this was going to happen: 1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils
I (we) cannot blame all America’s woes on Obama, American culture and values have been changing for a long time. That being said president Obama has spearheaded huge changes in this country during his presidency. It was Obama who said his administration would no longer support and defend marriage. I would say that Obama is playing the fool – except that he is not playing and it’s most definitely not funny what he is doing.
Obama has done more to damage this country than any preceding president, and unfortunately Congress has been asleep at the wheel and allowed him to carry out his agenda to appease Islam and destroy America.
It seems at times that president Obama almost delights in bowing and scraping to other countries assessing blame to the Great Satan (Iran’s name for the U.S.) for what ails the world. But there is a plan to fix everything that ails the U.S. – the people need only see the light shown on them by gracious and wise all-seeing Obama – starting with seeing the wisdom behind converting to Islam. Add to that the people simply must listen to father-Obama, as he knows what is best for us.
In Obama-world his word is the only one that matters; Congress must do as he tells them too along with all other branches of government. Even if Congress does not incline an ear to Obama’s wishes, well the pen is mightier than the sword – he will simply issue executive orders.
Obama’s declaration of non-support for the Defense of Marriage Act opened the door wide for the advancement of the homosexual agenda. Homosexual (same-sex) marriage is now the legal law of the land despite the Word of God, which does indeed prohibit this. Leviticus 18:22 Romans 1:24-27 1 Corinthians 6:9
President Obama has constantly and consistently placed himself above the Word of God and therefore above God Himself in his acts and declarations as president.
Obama supports abortion, after all everyone should have the right to decide on whether or not to kill his or her child right? Are not children a blessing and a gift from God? – yes they are.
Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward
Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God
As war rages on in Iraq and Syria with unspeakable atrocities committed by ISIS, and mass killings of American citizens are carried out by Muslims in America – Obama still refuses to speak the truth. The truth is ISIS and these killers in America, Paris, and elsewhere are the face of Radical Islam. Actually what these people are doing IS the true face of Islam. Read the Koran and see for yourself what Islam’s holy book commands of its adherents.
It is the hope of this writer that the American people are beginning to wake up to the reality of what is happening in this country, hence the popularity of Donald Trump. Obama and others like him are leading the charge to destroy this country but we the people originally gave Obama the power to effect these ungodly changes and we the people have stood idly by watching it happen.
Set your hope in Christ and not man – change we can believe in will only come about by God – not man.
1 Peter 1:3-9 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
