‘We have turnedour backs on God’
In light of the Fort Hood shooting this past week, why are we surprised when Spc. Lopez goes on a shooting rampage? We are quick to blame it all on guns and mental illness, but in reality, there is a deeper cause that most Americans deny.
A few years ago, President Obama made the statement that America is no longer a Christian nation. This administration has gone all out to bring this statement true. We have politicians and liberal judges all around our country who, along with the ACLU, are on an all out campaign to destroy God in our daily lives. It began in schools, then government places, and now in the military.
When I was in the Army, God was an important part of our lives. We had chapel services in basic training and in our final assignments. In the battlefield we had chaplains who were free to speak the name of Jesus and God and now these rights have been taken away from them. It is no wonder soldiers who are on deployment time after time develop mental problems. The deployments are bad enough, but when they do not have God to turn to they have no means of mental healing and support.
Our liberal judges, with the help of the ACLU and legislators, are working hard to take God out of our society altogether. We have politicians who lie to us (including the president) and we just call it “politics.” We no longer have a moral yardstick to measure good and bad.
I am reminded about what God told Jeremiah, the prophet in Judah, before the Babylonian captivity: do not pray for the nation because he will not hear their prayers. The nation was sacrificing babies to idols. We are sacrificing the unborn babies to the idol of abortion and pro-choice. We have killed millions of babies since Roe v. Wade and we call it women’s rights. What used to be good is now evil in our country and vice versa.
