The United States is coming apart and I don’t know how we save it.
We have reached a point where our overreaching Government has become so big that it is out of the control of even those who support it.
IRS, DoJ, NSA, looming Obamacare, Debt greater than our GDP, unsustainable entitlement programs….the list goes on and on.
Even today, the architect of Obamacare realized that he must scale back the employer mandate until after the mid-term elections. Of course he’s doing this because businesses have been expressing their displeasure to the Administration and the last thing Obama needs is another repeat of the 2010 mid-terms.
We are also seeing massive protests by the Pro-Abortion crowd because the Texas Legislature is trying to pass a bill to outlaw Abortions after 20 weeks. The vile tweets in the #StandWithWendy and #StandWithTXWomen are enough to make you sick to your stomach and it makes me wonder how we became a nation where many choose to defend the right to kill viable babies just for the sake of birth control. It’s not enough that we had to read about the evil inside Gosnell’s abortion clinic but there appears to be a large segment of the population that are totally cool with killing babies right up to birth.
It’s enough to make me throw up my hands and wonder how we take this country back. There is a great PowerPoint presentation showing how Conservatives can be a force multiplier and get involved in precinct activism and it is worth a read by everyone. While that is good work that we should definitely be involved with, I was left thinking that there was a bigger issue that we have to attack in order to rescue the US from the path we are on which is eerily similar to the Roman Empire.
Then I saw this video of #StandWithTXWomen people chanting “Hail Satan” and I realized what we need.
We aren’t just fighting a political war. If that were the case, the only thing that would save us would be a revolution. But a revolution is only successful when the vast majority of the citizens are in opposition to the ruling government and this isn’t the case now. There are too many people that are opposed to Conservative principles to solve this with a revolution. Do I have to remind you that Obama just won re-election by a decent margin? This is not a problem that can be solved by a revolution or a civil war.
We can’t combat the “Hail Satan” crowd, the #STandWithTXWomen crowd or the “Free Government Handout” crowd with blog posts and cute tweets. Let’s face it; we can’t do it by ourselves. I just can’t do it. I have failed. The chasm is too vast. America is more polarized now than ever before. We need help. I need help.
And when we reach the end of our rope and realize that we can’t do it on our own that is when we turn to a higher power. And then we find that Jesus has been waiting for us patiently all along.
We are fighting a Spiritual war in America and we just can’t win without help from the Holy Spirit. Only when we fall to our knees and admit we are powerless against the Prince of Darkness do we get help. The past few decades may have served the purpose to humble the Church and make us realize that we have neglected the One who could help us. It’s time to turn to Him. He’s the only hope we have.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Eph 6:12
