Voices are silent
Voices are silent. Fearing repercussions; market place, academia, athletics, voices remain quiet. Free speech has died a slow death in America. It took time, it took a society of compromised, indifferent, apathetic spoiled citizens demanding to be heard at the expense of God and country to sell the nation into bondage. It took time for the church to crumble, for the government to pass legislation legalizing sin, for men to embrace and adapt to ‘that’s the way it is.’ It took time for men to drift further away from God; but time passed, the church faltered, the government garnered more power and control and the citizenschoose to accept laws directly opposed to God’ Word rather than draw a line in the sand and take a stand. The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are “There is no God.” The church acquiesced to the world system, becoming a harlot rather than a haven, the government became more amoral and deceitful. American patriots took a stand often sacrificing home and health only to be met with ridicule and false accusations, soon became silent. To the pure, all things are pure but to those who are defined and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed.
John the Baptist spoke up against evil. John refused to remain silent, refusing to accept the corruption, the sin he took a stand and it cost him his life. American’ have refused to take a stand; accepting the laws, the lies, the fraud they plow furrows of resentment and hostility deeper and wider. America now stands condemned before a Righteous and Holy God; Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return. The one who sows to please his flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; but the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will receive eternal life. With hearts filled with shame and regret we must see what is before us; The star-spangled banner no longer waves o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave, repent and take a stand for truth.
