HAS SCRIPTURE BEEN TWISTED?

Friday's News Updates below this post.

I don't know if President Trump's love of America got the best of him, so to speak, but it's never a good idea to change the context of a Bible verse, and I would think particularly one about the salvation that Jesus Christ offers us into a verse about the goodness of America. At least that is what my take is of this article.

America is a great nation, but she is a morally rotten nation. She has come to the place where she not only embraces sins but ardently defends those sins as 'lifestyle choices,' and takes pride in those sins. The very sins that God's Holy Word says will prevent people from entering the kingdom of Heaven (1 Cor 6:9)  are the very sins that many Americans demand as freedoms to do without condemnation. They brook no words of caution from Christians to the contrary. Many of those wicked demands are being enshrined into law as sacrosanct. What has been heretofore called evil is now called good. And we are warned that that is a woe to those who do so (Is 5:20).

Salvation through Jesus Christ is a precious gift from our Heavenly Father (Ephesians 2:8). Jesus came and preached the good news of the Gospel (Luke 7:22).  He came to deliver us from the wrath to come (1 Thess 1:10), from being held captive in Satan's snares (Is 61:1) and from the holds of demons and to heal us of our sicknesses (Mark 1:34).  God sent Jesus to bring us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, which is the kingdom of the Son He loves (Colossians 1:13). He is more than willing to bring us out of a horrible pit and place us on the Rock, Jesus Christ (Ps 40:2). To embrace Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son, as our Savior (John 3:16) is to deliver us from the wretchedness of sin, and sin is those things, behaviors and thoughts and beliefs, that are contrary to the Word and will of God (Mark 7:20-23). I am sad to say, but America is wretched. That is not me casting 'judgment' upon America. That is me taking those things that America demands to have, lining them up with the Word of God, and finding they don't match. And when they don't match . . . that is the Word of God exposing darkness and wickedness. When America demands darkness and wickedness (John 3:19) then she also demands the curses which are the consequences of such demands (Deut 28).

Americans who demand such wickedness as freedoms, so far, show no inclination to repentance. When there is no desire for repentance, then hardening sets in, and people become hardened in their sins. Pharaoh hardened his heart. He hardened his heart against God. His nation, his country, his kingdom was laid waste, dismantled by destructive judgment after destructive judgment. Is America so different? I would say, 'Yes.' I say 'yes' because we knew better. We used to do better. This nation used to honor God. There was a time when our children were instructed in school in prayer and the Bible. There was a time when pastors preached the truth from the pulpits. There was a time when the head of the family was a father. And I mean a male father. There was a time when an unborn baby had nothing to fear in its mother's womb. There was a time when certain sins were not paraded in the streets. There was a time in America when a Christian did not have to fear attack or persecution for believing or preaching or sharing the Bible. In fact now, the sharing of the Gospel is considered 'hate speech'! There was a time in America when wickedness was a scandal.

However, no more.

President Obama encouraged wickedness to flourish and come to the surface as none other before him. He encouraged those Americans who wanted to be wicked to not only be wicked, but to be proud of their wickedness (Ezekiel 16:49). President Obama cast wide and far seeds of rebellion against God during his 8 years. Those seeds are growing rapidly, as tares, as noxious weeds do, bearing chaos and confusion(Hosea 7:3). If the swamp resists being drained, so do the weeds being pulled.

I am thankful that President Trump is pro-life and pro-Israel. It is a welcome, refreshing change after eight years of the most anti-life, anti-Israel President in my life time. Franklin Graham has noted that Trump is the most pro-Christian President in his lifetime, and I am grateful for that as well. But I cannot help but feel he should not change a Bible verse about the awesome gift of salvation into some kind of ode to America.

Perhaps some of you will think I am being too defensive. I get that. But read the article for yourself, and see if you do not, as you are reading it, feel a sense of discomfort at what appears to be a twisting of the scripture.

Dutchsinse: YouTube Earthquake Forecaster Predicting With Shocking Accuracy
(gg: Unfortunately the site mentioning this is Gaia, but I thought the information might be worthwhile. I kept this bookmarked because in the article dated Jan 27, it reports the Dutchsinse was saying he believed an earthquake would strike in New York within the week. Mary Greeley noted that a 2.2 eq was reported in New York but felt it must have been of greater magnitude than what was reported because quite a few people reported feeling it, nearly 300 in fact. And that's just the number who reported it. Many don't. I certainly haven't filled out the USGS report every time I've felt a quake here, only some of them. So felt it but didn't report it. I am not a 'follower' of Dutchsinse though I have heard of him, and I have linked to him a couple of times in the past. His videos are so long I just don't have time to spend an hour or so each day on them, so I generally pass. I am linking to this article, in spite of its source, in case it is of interest to some of my readers. I might check out his site more often as he just might be on to something.)
