Discoveries in Faith

Short, uplifting Bible lessons designed to build faith and inspire obedience. 

Understanding Our Times

Current news reports contain numerous examples of man's foolishness. I will not try to list the many preposterous activities now commonplace, because this blog is not about culture but about God. Yet our relationship (or lack of relationship) with God always has ripple effects that spill over into everyday life. Suffice to say, as a nation we are acting stupid and this is affecting our economy, morals, government, military, fashion, and entertainment.  

So why has America gone bonkers? Have we suddenly lost our mind?

The current illogical behaviour in America is nothing less than the judgment of God upon our nation.

In Deuteronomy 28 when discussing the curses of sin, Moses said that when God judges a people for their sin He will turn them over to foolishness. 

  • "The Lord will send on you cursing [and] confusion" verse 20.
  • "The Lord will strike you with madness and blindness and confusion of heart" verse 28.
  • "So shall you be driven mad" verse 34.

This makes sense because when one turns away from the Light, they turn to darkness. And when one turns away from the Truth, they turn to error. 

America's problem is not a political or economic problem, it is a spiritual one. Only Jesus can pull us out of this self-destructive craziness. Spiritual awakening is our only hope. We must turn away from sin and turn back to God. Anything less will ensure more foolishness.
