When a culture forgets God the just suffer with the unjust. Ask Jeremiah.
Remember the Christians in ancient times and look to our heavenly home.
Remind me that if i'm having one of those rare good days and everything seems right in the world to put off reading Mr. Snyders article.
About the only thing that will stop this ongoing decline of the US is a full-blown nuclear war. It is already too far gone for anyone or anything to turn it around. All nations which have gone this route, and just about everyone in recorded history, have been destroyed in the end and replaced by some other nation. It's our turn.
Remember Jesus said no one is good but my father in heaven. As true Christians our new goodness is not ours, it's God's gift of grace via the Holy Spirit. Whatever Christianity we had at the beginning was quickly taken over by humanistic enlightenment thinking, that man is basically good and Sci. Logic and reason not the Bible is the way to go forward. It took about 250 years but here we are, I'm not surprised and it's about to get much worse.
What a perfect time for an imitation messiah to come and rescue us and because of the signs and wonders false promises even raising from the dead the world and false Christians will flee to him as he rescues us from all this mess. From the frying pan into the fire, most will have no idea what they have done until it's too late.
After reading that article, I think I'll just go back to bed. If they won't leave Amish farmers alone, what chance do the rest of us have?
Mr. Snyder, I might add that you are about 153 years off on that assessment of the culture. You can’t change the culture till you persecute the truth out of existence, bring in the philistines to fill the gap, then defile the seed. It’s not complicated but the adversary must make it that way so the truth is hard to find and that the target of such animosity is none the wiser salivating over their religious fairytales.
