God Damn America?


Absolutely Not!!  God inspired, established, and has protected America for over 200 years!  BUT . . . WE have damned ourselves!

The man we have elected to run our country, is a man whose agenda is to run America into the ground, to totally destroy her, and hand her over to her enemies.  And God has willed it so–unless we repent!! We can fight Obama all we like, and cry out to God for help and deliverance, but unless we repent, it ain’t gonna happen!!

Repent of what? In no particular order, and definitely not all-inclusive, the practice, protection and/or promotion of:

  • denial and rejection of God
  • abortion
  • homosexuality
  • cheating (financially, academically, in marriage, etc.)
  • abandonment of family
  • rejection of marriage
  • basing decisions on economics (rather than morality)
  • greed
  • exploitation
  • self-exaltation
  • disrespect
  • dishonesty
  • arrogance
  • pornography
  • pedophilia
  • incest
  • vengeance
  • violence
  • murder
  • sexual perversion
  • profanity and vulgarity
  • abdication of personal responsibility
  • abuse of drugs and alcohol
  • abdication of parental responsibility


If you say we are a Christian nation, you are deceiving yourself!  Our sin and greed have risen to such gigantic proportions that they are the face of America that the rest of the world knows us by!  Yes, there are many Christians in America–and many kind and generous people.  Yes, the motives of the majority of the American people, towards the rest of the world, have been honorable.  BUT–we have let the actions of a minority represent how we relate to the rest of the world, and they have not treated the rest of the world with Christian love.

Our big businesses, multinational corporations, and government are in bed together.  Together, they have misused their power, by plundering the earth and exploiting the poor around the world.  They have meddled in the affairs of other nations, even to the extent of determining who the leaders of other nations should be, arming and funding resistance movements,  assassinations, etc.!  All this in the name of ‘defending American interests’.  Nonsense!  It was never our right to do such things!  It was motivated by greed!

But this is only one facet of our nation’s sinfulness.  The stench of our depravity here at home is appalling!!  Unfortunately, this is all exported too! In the form of Hollywood movies, television, and slick advertising campaigns, we market our vile, depraved culture, along with our products, to people all over the world.

I am talking to the churches in America, because God’s covenant is with us, not with the unbelievers. He placed us here to be ‘salt’ and ‘light’ to the world.  Yet, is our influence holding back decay or illuminating the sin around us?  Are we using our God-given authority to wage war on evil, when it sprouts up in our nation?  I don’t think so . . .

Make no mistake, we are the ones God holds accountable.  He has given us freedom and a system of government that allows us to determine our course and to choose our leaders.  Therefore, we are completely responsible.  Rather than take part in our government, most of us have abdicated the responsibility and gone about our lives, looking to our own interests.  It is said, that we get the leaders we deserve.

How many of you can still discern evil?  Our senses have become so dull, our consciences so seared, that we don’t even recognize vile sinfulness when it is standing right in front of us!!

After 9/11 ‘God Bless America’ signs were everywhere.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t make that prayer my own.  How can we expect God to bless, for even one day, a nation that offers its children as sacrifices to the god of personal convenience?  Yes women have the right to choose–whether to be celibate or promiscuous, whether to use contraception or not!  Once a sperm and an egg fuse, a person exists!  From the moment of conception, that person has GOD GIVEN rights!  Your rights do not extend to taking the life of another–regardless of who you are!!

Another vile and grievous sin that America practices, protects, and promotes is homosexuality.  People used to be wise enough to know that God did not create a man’s body to be penetrated by another man.  The very idea of such a thing used to disgust people, but not these days.  Perhaps if we didn’t have the modern conveniences of toilet paper, antibiotics, soap, and sexual lubricants, that would be more readily apparent.  Regardless, we do still have the Word of God that tells us this behavior is an abomination in the eyes of God.

Pornography has played a HUGE role in the collapse of the family, the exponential increase in every type of sexual perversion, and violence against women, children and young men.  It has gone from being a closet sin to being mainstream among young adults.  Today, many young women aspire to be porn stars, while others are lining up to be ‘exotic dancers’ and prostitutes.  We have lost all shame and personal modesty.  Women have become brazen and vulgar, young children are promiscuous and sexually violent, and even straight men talk about having ‘man crushes’ on other men.

How many of you are grieved by the disrespect that is so rampant today?  Even nice Disney films have been remade, and updated, with characters that have a disrespectful, belligerent attitude.  Children don’t respect adults, women don’t respect men, and a good many of us don’t respect authority!  But, then again, adults don’t respect children, men don’t respect women, and those in authority don’t respect the people they oversee.  Our culture is in shambles.

Not only is each of us ‘out for himself’, but many have come to regard themselves as gods, goddesses, and divas!  If we acknowledge God at all, most of us don’t submit to His authority!  Our personal, and national, arrogance is unbelievable!

Do you realize that lying is listed alongside murder as a sin that will exclude you from the Kingdom of Heaven?  Yet, we take it so lightly.  Take the time, next time you watch TV, to analyze the programs and the commercials in terms of what values and sins they promote.  If you watch it objectively, and don’t get caught up in the drama, I think you’ll quickly be amazed at what a powerful tool television is in molding social values.  I think it will be eye-opening for you to see what a strong cultural pressure there is for people to be deceitful.

I may be wrong, but I propose that when people continually practice dishonesty, they lose the ability to discern the truth from a lie.  (Can you see how this will further the acceptance of the man of lies–The Antichrist–when he comes on the scene?  What I understand from Scripture is that Israel, America, and many European nations will be among those that embrace him–his kingdom may even take root here first.)


Why do churches back away from speaking out against sin?  From being involved in politics?  My theory is that it was primarily because churches were allowed tax exempt status, but could lose it if they got involved politically.  To me, that is a clear choice between serving God or serving money.  It may not have been readily apparent at the time, nevertheless, here we are now.

And indeed, here we are now–and we still have a choice! Every church has the option of giving up their tax exempt status and being unfettered in what they say!  But how many have the courage to do so?


Shame on those who have sold out!  What will it profit you to have the most grandiose church, the longest list of members, the most offerings in your coffers, if the truth and the presence of God are absent from your midst? The day is coming that the blood of martyrs will be upon your altars.  For it will be you that betrays your brothers to death, you that delivers up the ones that hold to the truth,  because it pierces your heart and you can’t bear it, it puts you in danger with the authorities and you can’t abide that.  Therefore upon your altars, as a witness against you, those who hold to the truth will be slain.  Their blood will soak your carpets and splatter your walls, and the stain of it will never be removed.



America has rejected God.  Yes, the churches too.  We have repeatedly allowed our religious expression to be limited.  We have retreated from the conflict time and again.  (No wonder the jihadists believe our God is weak–our resolve and faith in Him certainly is!)

You can justify it by saying that we’ve lost battles and the laws have changed, and that we are just following the new laws (unfortunate as they may be).  That certainly illustrates a lack of zeal and commitment to God.  Would you yield so readily if someone told you that you couldn’t claim your spouse and kids on your tax return?  Or if they limited how may miles a week you could drive your car?  We don’t easily surrender what really matters to us!

Our sin and apathy are creating a perfect environment for the kingdom of the Antichrist.  Do we really want to create a place where he can feel welcome to set up shop?

Stop trying to blend in with our Godless culture!  Repent!!  Live right!  Stop trying to appease the ungodly!  Speak the truth!  Pray at meals and meetings when you feel led.  Decorate for Christmas if you want!  Go to jail if you must, but stand up for your God!  Don’t you know He’ll stand with you?

We have allowed unbelievers to remove God from America.  So, as requested, He has withdrawn from us somewhat.  He allows things to befall us that He would have protected us from in the past.  He is giving us small glimpses of what it will be like if He withdraws from us completely.  Yet, when disasters befall us, rather than consider our relationship to God, we summon our pride.  ‘We’re tough’, we say, ‘what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.’  And we become even more hardened and entrenched in our sinfulness!!  How much will we have to suffer, before we truly repent?

Our  nation is standing on the verge of collapse.  Many forces are gathering against us.  Our economy is deliberately being destroyed.  Our leaders are betraying us. Our international enemies are expanding their militaries and forging coalitions.  Like a pack of wolves silently surrounding us, stealthily creeping forwards, great calamities are approaching.

Our enemies, used to encountering God’s wall of protection around us, are cautiously probing and testing.  If we go from the status of a nation that was so blessed and protected, to one that is left wide open to its enemies–expect the attacks to be horrific!  Not only have our actions provoked hatred towards us from among the nations, but so has our position of being blessed and favored by God!  What a terrible, terrible thing it will be, to fall into the hands of our enemies–but even that pales in comparison to the judgements that God will pour out upon us Himself, when He returns.


An Attack On America Is Imminent!
Abortion, Are You SURE You Have The Right?
Homosexuality: Why Is It Such A Big Deal?

It’s too much to expect people, who haven’t yielded themselves to the authority of Christ, to accept ‘because God says so’ as a reason.  But, ultimately that IS the reason.  I’ll try to shed a bit of light on why God says that homosexuality is wrong.

God made the world, and all that is in it, and it belongs to Him.  He gets to make the rules and set the boundaries.  Some of you aren’t going to read any farther than this–and THAT is your problem.  You don’t accept the authority of God.

Unlike the culture that we live in, that defines people’s worth by their position, wealth and accomplishments, the kingdom of God is open to all.  God does not seek to hide His truth, revealing it to only a few chosen individuals with a title and capital letters following their name.  He has made it simple enough that a child, or a mentally challenged person can understand.  He has written His story all over creation.

When God speaks, there are layers of meaning in His words.  Beyond that, He speaks to us through the natural world, and through patterns and foreshadowings.  This universe is His creation, His work of art, and all of it is imbued with a message.  Over and over again, in harmony, His creation speaks of Him and His nature, so that everyone will have an awareness and an understanding of His presence, His character, and the unspoken rules of how to live in harmony with Him.

Satan was not pleased with the nature of God and thought himself better than his creator.  So, he set himself in rebellion against God, to try to remake God’s creation in his image.  Wherever Satan has been, the wondrous masterpiece of God has been blurred, smeared, marred and painted over, in his attempt to silence God’s communication with man, and make his own message preemminent.

Satan, unlike man, has no power of creation within him.  All he is able to do is pervert what God has created.  Everywhere he has influence, the creation and purposes of God have been perverted.

God’s plan for our sexuality must be very sacred, and powerful, because it is an area that Satan targets most often, and that seems to yield him the most power through its perversion. So, we probably have to look beyond the message Satan has painted over the surface, and beneath the smudges and smears where he has tried to obliterate God’s plan, to get a glimpse of what may lie beneath.  I believe his plan has been two-pronged: to downplay the power and sanctity of sexuality as God created it, and to play up the ‘merits’ of his version of perverted sexuality.

God’s design was for sex to be between a man and his wife–only.  If that’s all it is, for a lifetime, then we must not be experiencing the depth of what He intended for us.

Having grown up promiscuous, I can only guess at what the love life of a deeply committed, monogamous, married couple, who were virgins on their wedding night must be like.

Marriage is a symbol of Jesus’ relationship to Christians.  The relationship between a believer and Jesus is one of deep caring, sacrificial love, lifelong loyalty and fidelity, honesty, tenderhearted devotion, patience, protection, forgiveness, kindness, humility, respect, trust and complete acceptance. This kind of a relationship gives birth to a depth of intimacy that heals the soul, provides health, security, peace and joy.  Outside of this kind of love, no one will ever reach their full potential.

Besides a person’s relationship to Jesus, marriage is the only other environment where a relationship of such depth could exist.  This environment, with such a depth of love and commitment, is necessary for people to bring forth children and raise them in such a way that they can reach their full potential, and go on to create the same kind of relationship upon which they build their own family.  A community, built of families such as this, is what God had planned for mankind.

Into this framework, God wove his design for human sexuality.  I believe that sex between a man and wife was to be a kind of superglue that could permeate every space between them and bond them firmly together in unity–a means of complete connection, a deep form of communication, a continuous affirmation.  I think it was meant to provide a level of satisfaction that we can no longer come close to understanding.  We are so far from what God created for us, because of sin–in ourselves, our culture, and our world–that it must seem like a fairy tale to imagine it.

When two wounded people come together, especially if there has been promiscuity on the part of one or the other, it is nearly impossible to attain the level of loyalty, fidelity, honesty, devotion, patience, forgiveness, kindness, humiliy, respect, trust and complete acceptance that form the sturdy structure in which such a profound intimacy can thrive.  I believe, without this depth of intimacy, that sex cannot completely
fulfill the purpose God intended.

You’d have to understand my history to know that I am in no way judging.  I am a broken, wounded person myself.  I was never able to sustain a successful marriage and my own children grew up in a ‘broken home’.

I also am not intending to add to anyone’s despair, because when the intimacy and sexuality of a couple are not filling the spaces between them, as God intended, it can be DEVASTATINGLY painful.

Nor am I saying that it is a lost cause, if this describes your relationship, because God can redeem all things.  Perhaps this will give you an understanding of how to pray, and help you to understand that it is not outside your marriage where you will find satisfaction.  Rather, it is through a supernatural work of God to renovate the structure of the relationship between you and your spouse, that the environment can be created where this kind of intimacy and sex can be birthed and grow to maturity.

Another aspect that is important to understand, is that God didn’t intended it to be about the sex itself.  Not about the sex act, the orgasm, or the measure of ‘sexual satisfaction’ achieved.  It IS about the depth of feeling, love, vulnerability and connection between you and your spouse.  It is like the difference between

  • listening to the words someone is saying, taking into account their volume and tone, to understand the message they are trying to convey or
  • only listening to the volume and tone, thereby completely missing the message

Please forgive me for being explicit, but it’s not about focusing on the technique or position, but rather holding each other, looking into each others eyes and talking to each other about things that are deeply personal, as you make love.

So much has blurred what God created our sexuality to be, and the context in which He intended it, that few of us find it.  Then it becomes easy to be dissatisfied with what we have and look elsewhere.

Here is something I observed, as homosexuality made its way into the mainstream.  It seemed to start first with the wounded souls who had been living a secret life of homosexuality.  Then, as time went on, a number of older men joined up.  I could be wrong, but I sense that these men were heterosexuals who had not been satisfied in their marriage, had sex outside of marriage and didn’t find fulfillment there, and were seeking something new.

This is the problem inherent with focusing on the sex act, outside of the full context that God intended–it doesn’t fulfill us, and we grow bored.  First we try to spice things up with our spouse–new positions, toys, pornography.  Then we’re tempted to look outside the marriage, then on to the next thing . . .  and we come to the conclusion that what we had is all that God intended, and that it just isn’t enough.  (But we haven’t really had what He intended!!)

Not surprisingly, it’s easy for Satan to paint his version over top of God’s original design, and we’re ready to try it–whatever the ‘flavor of the day’ is*–believing it will bring the satisfaction we crave.

Perhaps now you can see why homosexuality, or sex outside of marriage, isn’t what God intended.  And you may be of the impression now that homosexuality isn’t God’s best, but is still acceptable as a consolation prize for those who are not blessed enough to have found the ‘real thing’. To be honest, I probably haven’t said enough to actually convince you that there is anything wrong with homosexuality.

Here’s the thing, I’ll lay it out for you, but it may very well not convince you.  Our culture is so perverse and depraved now, that purity seems ridiculous and old fashioned.  I’m not going to contrast homosexuality with heterosexuality, or even with a monogamous marriage.  I believe American heterosexuality is now so far from what God intended, that it is a mere ‘skip and a jump’ from there to homosexuality.  Instead, I will contrast homosexuality with what God created for mankind in the first place.

First of all, physically, homosexuality is a filthy practice.  The amount of disease causing organisms you are exposed to during the act, and the manner in which those organisms are transported around, leaves you vulnerable to every sort of disease and infection, throughout your entire body.

While we don’t adhere to the laws in the Biblical book of Leviticus, at the very least they should serve as good guidelines for sanitary living.   (To get an idea of what I’m talking about, you can read Leviticus 15.)  Leviticus was written in a period of time before modern medicine.  Good hygiene and sanitation were vital to keeping sickness at bay. What may now seem like extreme measures, were in fact necessary to ensure that a community of people, living in close contact, could remain healthy.

  • So, one of the reasons God declared it to be sin is that it affects your health, and that of your family and your community.

Leviticus also reveals to us that certain acts or events rendered a person unclean in a way that an atonement had to be made.  Because God actually lived among them, a person could literally drop dead when near Him, if they were unclean.

  • Thus, another reason is for your own protection–that the physical presence of God wouldn’t literally knock you dead.  Also, for your family and community, so that God wouldn’t have to withdraw His presence from them because of your sin.

Beyond that were actions so displeasing to God, so dishonorable and/or perverse, that the person committing them was to be cut off from their community, by capital punishment.  Homosexuality is listed among those actions.  (If it doesn’t seem like that big a deal, it’s because we are already very corrupt sexually, and can no longer discern it.)

  • This was to protect the community/society.  It is based on the understanding that corruption spreads, and that all things reproduce in their own image.  Left unchecked, sinful behaviors will be accepted and adopted by an entire community.

From a purely logical point of view, and given the description above (of the kind of communities and families God intends), it is easy to see that homosexuality would displace male-female marriages and eat into the very foundation upon which society is based.

There are two more reasons I’ll cover, and they are the most important ones.  But, I’ve listed the reasons in reverse order, because most people who are held captive by sin are going to see their importance in reverse order.  When we are in bondage to sin, our first concern is ourself–and our last concern is the authority of God.

As I explained at the beginning of the post, God speaks to us through the natural world and through patterns and foreshadowings.  This universe is His creation, His work of art, and all of it is imbued with a message. In harmony, His creation speaks of Him and His nature, so that everyone will have an awareness and an understanding of His presence, His character, and the unspoken rules of how to live in harmony with Him.

Homosexuality is one of the things that perverts the picture.  It erases the message of how Jesus is related to the believer (husband and wife), and it replaces the message of cleanliness & holiness with one of filth & depravity.  It obscures the pattern God has laid out for the family and society.

That God is concerned with the picture, the pattern and the unspoken message, is reflected in his condemnation of other behaviors too.  In and of itself, it does not seem like a big deal for a woman to dress as a man, or a man as a woman, but ‘cross dressing’ is forbidden.  So is planting a field with two kinds of seed, or wearing clothing woven of two kinds of material. (If someone can show me a logical reason for this, please do!)  These things reflect a pattern that God wants to convey, and wants to have repeated.  His desire is for everything in His creation to be cohesive and give forth a harmonious, consistent message.

And that sums up the most important reason–HE is the creator, and HE gets to make the rules!  That’s the way He wants it, so that’s the way it shall be!

What great artist, upon finding his masterpiece painting vandalized and corrupted, would go ahead and exhibit it anyway?  Wouldn’t he instead be furious that his message had been lost?  Would he honor the one who erased his message by displaying their message instead?

Satan is the author of all perversion.  God will not shrug and walk away, and let Satan obliterate His message and replace it with an unholy one that flows from his heart full of hatred and rebellion.  Not as long as there is still one living soul left on earth whose heart is open to knowing God and knowing the truth.

It isn’t homosexuality, per se, that separates a person from God.  We were all born into sin and are destined to be separated from God, unless we accept the atoning death of Jesus Christ on our behalf.

But, although I can understand WHY homosexuals indulge in this sin, I can’t have an attitude of tolerance to it, and here’s why:  When a person sins, it is like a rock being dropped into a still lake–ripples move outwards from the impact, in all directions, eventually  impacting distant shores.  Although it is the person who practices the sin that faces judgment for it, countless other people are affected, to varying degrees, by their actions.

To those of you who say ‘that’s not fair, God made me this way’–I have to disagree.  Very few of you are hermaphrodites.  God would not establish homosexuality as a sin, then create you to be homosexual.

It is apparent to me that there are some sins that have a definite spiritual dimension to them.  When one engages in these sins they open the door to demonic oppression and/or possession.  Until one is ‘delivered’ from the demonic influences that accompany these sins, they will be continuously tempted and tormented.  Among these sins, I believe, are serial murder, homosexuality, pedophilia, incest, and bestiality, among others.

BUT, even if I am mistaken about demonic involvement, and mistaken about someone being ‘born that way’, consider this:  It is not unfair for God to require that a homosexual not engage in homosexuality anymore!

Adulterers are required not to commit adultery anymore!  We are all forbidden to have sex outside of marriage!  Thieves are required to stop stealing!  Murderers are required to stop murdering!  We are all commanded to stop lying!  The whole sum of the matter is that we are to yield ourselves to the authority of God and live by His rules.

When we accept Jesus’ death on our behalf, we must REPENT of our sins (all of us, every form of sin).  We must renounce our sins and turn away from them, living as images of Him.  By His grace and mercy He did not crush us while we were in our sins, but instead He provided a way that we could be forgiven and made righteous.  But, we must die to our former way of life.

There is a particular hardness of heart towards God, and an unwillingness to repent of the sin, among homosexuals.  This is because:

‘ . . . they neither glorified Him as God, nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.’

‘They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator . . .

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.  Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.  Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.’

* On the heels of homosexuality going mainstream, acceptance of pedophilia is in the works.  Then we have bestiality and incest trailing not far behind.  Hollywood is now in the process of beginning to desensitize us to both, as it did with homosexuality before it fully emerged.  I’m not yet ready to lay odds on which one will be accepted first.

This may sound extreme, but watch.  It is the natural progression when a culture turns its back on God and walks the other way.

If This Is True, We’d Better Not Yield To The Temptation
