Was sent a couple of interesting items in the news related to the Obama Administration:
Obama Administration: We Can and Will Force Christians to Act Against Their FaithCNS - excerpts…
The first argument the administration makes against the owners of Hobby Lobby is that Americans lose their First Amendment right to freely exercise their religion when they form a corporation and engage in commerce. A person’s Christianity, the administration argues, cannot be carried out through activities he engages in through an incorporated business.
The second argument the administration makes to justify forcing Christians to act against their faith is more sweeping. Here the administration argues it can force a person to act against his religion so long as the coercion is done under the authority of a law that is neutral and generally applicable—in other words, as long as the law was not written specifically to persecute Christians as Christians, the government can use that law to persecute Christians….http://cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-administration-we-can-and-will-force-christians-act-against-their-faithObama urging state lawmakers to legalize gay marriage in Illinois: Sun-Times exclusive
There certainly has been a change in the moral direction in the USA in the past several decades, which seems to have accelerated.
While many act like there is no economic or other cost to this, they are mistaken.
It may be of interest to note that since movement in the USA towards the Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973, not only have 50,000,000 or so babies been aborted/murdered, the USA has gone from being the world’s largest creditor nation to the world’s largest debtor nation.
According to the Bible, debt is a curse of disobeying God:
43 “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. 45 “Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. (Deuteronomy 28:43-46)
The destruction of the USA is coming and abortion in one of the many reasons (see also Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).
Also notice what has happened to the economy of the United States:
In real terms, as mentioned above, US growth in the 21st century seems to have fallen back to medieval levels. Why?…Because the economy failed to produce real growth. After 1973, wages, for example, adjusted for inflation, went nowhere. (Bonner B. Economic Growth in the Internet Age. Daily Reckoning, June 23, 2011)
The typical working stiff earns less real money today than he did 40 years ago. (Bonner B. Economic Long Live the 1%. Daily Reckoning, November 25, 2011)
Coincidence or curse?
While Roe vs. Wade happened before the Obama Administration, it has taken steps to expand abortion availability, which is really part of what the first article from CNS above is about.
And the debt: Notice something two items that were posted just hours ago:
No matter what Washington does at the 11th hour tonight, we end the year with one, absolutely indisputable, conclusion:
The mammoth U.S. debt monster is not going away. It’s continuing to grow. And in early 2013, it will return to haunt the White House, Congress and the Fed in a great, new debt ceiling debate!…When will the debt crisis cease to be just a political battle? In other words, when will it turn into a flesh-and-blood disaster with a direct impact on our daily lives?Will we ultimately wind up with hyperinflation and an ugly dictatorship much as Germany did after World War I?.
Destruction is coming and it will be even worse than most portray it according to biblical prophecy (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8). No matter how the current fiscal cliff debate ends (and it really is not over today), the result is that the total debt of the USA will rise. And then notice what ultimately will really happen:
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry…5 Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man… 6 “Will not all these take up a proverb against him, And a taunting riddle against him, and say, ‘Woe to him who increases What is not his–how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges’? 7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly? Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty. 8 Because you have plundered many nations, All the remnant of the people shall plunder you. Because of men’s blood And the violence of the land and the city, And of all who dwell in it. (Habakkuk 2:3,5,6-8).
The USA will really go over its prophesied fiscal cliff and be no more. But the end is not yet, and will not be in 2013.
Some items of possibly related concerns may include:
Abortion, the Bible, and a Woman’s Right to Choose Do you know what the Bible teaches on this? Has the Roman Catholic Church allowed abortions? What about the real Church of God?
God Created Marriage Some falsely claim that God did not create marriage and that fornication is fine. What does the Bible really teach?
Why Marriage? Soon Obsolete? This is a booklet from Herbert Armstrong on this important topic.
Here’s the Plain Truth About OLD TESTAMENT POLYGAMY by Herbert Armstrong.
Love, Marriage, and Sex It is important to get them in the right order.
The Bible Condemns Homosexuality “Same-sex marriage” for “gays” and lesbians is becoming more acceptable to many. What does the Bible teach about homosexuality? Can homosexuals change?
