For a generation our academics, social activist, liberal politicians and Tinsel Town tramps have been engaged in pushing God out of the national consciousness. They have made great strides and have only a few big hurdles left. One is same sex marriage, the other, no one has any clue about is – judgment.
Extreme you say? Just look at these headlines ripped from the news cycle on just one single day. If these headlines don’t clinch it for you wait a few days and look again, they are coming faster now than a tsunami.

These headlines are not meant to make us feel sick – they are the evidence that we are sick.
We have decided that the empty space or the omissions in the constitution are a good place to put in every sleazy idea we can come up with. The founders could not have seen this generation coming when they penned the greatest civil document in world history – the constitution.
We have called the Bible a book full of contradictions and spurious authenticity while ignoring the flaming contradictions known as - our own lives.
The church has wimped into apostasy and backtracking, and doesn’t seem to notice that Jesus long ago warned that doing so would make us unfit for the kingdom, the calling and the coming rewards. We are quickly becoming the salt that has lost its savor and is only good for the trash. (Mt 5: 13)
While the world is having a fit, the Christians have decided to have their own fit. “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Lk 9: 62)
Good theologians and expositors shy away from using much metaphor when explaining the most essential meaning of scripture. There are some cases in which the meaning would be lost without some simile and metaphor.
Metaphorically speaking the lions, wolves and leopards in the following verse are the headlines you have just read in one day’s news. This is what our backsliding nation is producing for itself.
“Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.” (Jer 5: 6)
Social dysfunction, moral depravity and perversion is a seething cesspool of excretory waste that even after being re-branded as ‘political correctness’ is wafting its odorous stench across the nation like a wave of slow death.
It is not just the pot calling the kettle black, but is now the pot denying that the luminous Holy Creator God who provided the iron ore, or the clay, to make the pot - doesn’t even exist!
Funny thing about pots, whether iron or clay they really ought not to strive with their maker.
“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?” (Isa 45: 9)
But alas, that is exactly what we are doing on a national scale. How will that end? According to Revelation, that book of warning about man’s last gasps at self-rule, it does not end well.
If you don’t like this answer you can always resort to a liberal politician, a gay person or a God hating atheist for a more pleasing answer. Even this writer has to admit that lies do work pretty well – for a time. Sadly – time is running out.
“But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.” (Re 2: 25-27)
