Being the “avoider of confrontation and debate” that I am, I generally steer clear of politics on my blog. However, to me this goes beyond politics. In my not-so-humble opinion, it is the complacency of the Christians who have gone before us that has led to the moral decay in this country. I think we are on the verge of being judged by God and that scares me.
I don’t think it’s too late, though.
“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
We have to turn, though. We have to pray. We have to seek God’s face. And, we have to act.
“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4:17
So, what is it that I feel that I ought to do? I ought to be praying fervently, staying informed, keeping my head out of the sand, and contacting my state representatives to let them know how I, one of their constituents, feel on issues of importance. The following are two issues that I feel are of critical importance:
Obama and Global Education
This is scary stuff. It’s beyond frightening to me to think of our children being raised by the government, rather than their parents. I think we’ve given our government far too much power and have expected it to do far too much for us. When we expect the government to pay for each of its citizens to have a cell phone and digital TV reception, we’ve crossed the line between asking for a hand up and asking for a hand out.
But maybe that’s just me.
