I have some things on my heart that I want to say to you as your pastor with regard to the nation in which we live. And as I think about Memorial Day and all that’s been sacrificed through the years to give us our freedom, and as we watch those things that we love and those freedoms that have been purchased for us at the price of blood beginning to disappear, and things changing dramatically, it’s important for us to have a perspective that is biblical and God-honoring. And it is this: the Bible presents the truth that the human heart is deeply embedded with wickedness and corruption.
All are sinners. All fall short of the glory of God, we know that. Man is evil, not only in his behavior; he’s evil in his thinking, he’s evil in his intension. Every part of him is infected with evil. He is evil to the core. He is desperately wicked – to borrow the language of Jeremiah. He is characterized by sin, iniquity, and transgression; and nothing he does pleases God. This is the biblical definition of the human condition…
What to do about a floundering AMERICA? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
A recent sermon by a well-known pastor was paradoxically entitled, Hope for a Doomed Nation, with 12 marks being given that a society has been abandoned by God to its sin, based on the Romans 1 descent from heterosexual immorality to homosexuality to a depraved mind.
So where is the hope? The hope is found in Christians following Jesus’ example to love our enemies, sharing the good news of salvation in Christ, thus being used by God to save some from destruction.
