WHO WILL CONTROL THE FUTURE OF AMERICA? Declining moral values, increasing violence, corrupt influences at work in society, lack of moral leadership, disregarding God in personal conduct, and failure to establish a sound, just social order, were the continuing conditions taking place in the days before the flood. We (the people of America, and in every nation) are in danger of following the same depraved spirit of disobedience as the people living before the flood! Their way of living brought mankind into a violent and corrupt manner of living shortly after creation, which was the cause of their destruction. Does this sound familiar? Look around! We observe similar happenings in the social order of today! The lack of ethics being taught is quite obvious, moral standards of conduct are declining, violence is increasing, and efforts to remove God from all segments of society are growing daily. Doubt about the true account of the origin of life, as taught in the Bible, are continually instilled in the minds of young people, as the “theory of evolution” is continuously taught as fact in the educational systems of America, and made a part of science literature and text books. The “big bang” theory, accompanied by the necessary dependence on immense lengths of time for evolution to have taken place, is repeatedly shown on “scientific programs”, developed for television audiences. It appears that Scientific, Academic, and Political authorities are in a collaboration of efforts to remove GOD from society in America. Their reasoning: elimination of moral standards of conduct, allowing individuals to decide for themselves what they accept as rules of conduct, thereby weakening the fabric of society, eventually setting the stage for a “take over” by a secular régime. Also to establish the “theory of evolution” as an alternative philosophy that excludes GOD and the right to participate in teaching moral, and principles of spiritual living, allowing ungodly persons to implement control over people. Those persons who embrace this system of belief will have no feelings of guilt for their corrupt and self-serving actions, and will find no reason to change. Earth’s Scientists, Paleontologists, and others, advocate a hypothesis or theory to be true, politicians then call for such false theories and contentions to be taught in schools, from elementary, through High school, and into institutions of higher learning. Academic circles then enter these false theories, and conjectures into the curriculum textbooks without determining their truthfulness, teaching these unproven theories and concepts as fact. The High Court of the Land upholds such actions, making it illegal to speak of GOD in public schools and other places. These misguided efforts result in the loss of freedoms and rights of thousands and thousands of people who believe and trust in the living GOD. Such erroneous actions will be the reason generations of agnostic, and disbelieving individuals to develop, bringing about a corrupt and immoral society. Even now there are cults, social groups and advocates of atheism, who openly campaign against the practice and teaching of religion, or spiritual values, and the reality of GOD, in any form, publicly or privately. Is society willing to disregard God, and with a clear conscience, accept whatever false theories and contentions academics, politicians and advocacy groups propose, without demanding proof of their truth beyond a shadow of doubt? Why are those who sincerely believe in the reality of God not allowed equal opportunities to provide a refutation of these false, deceptive, and erroneous concepts, with the truth? Why must those who have unalterable faith in God be forced into a secondary or lower position, because of dissenters’ lack of belief in God? Future historians will look back on this age with the view, “It was all about power and control by deception”. LASTING EFFECTS OF FORGETTING GOD 5 The LORD descended in the cloud and stood there with him as he called upon the name of the LORD. 6 Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness’ and truth; 7 who keeps loving-kindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations." (Exodus 34:5-7 (NASB). Will we deprive children of future generation’s access to teachings concerning religious precepts and words of truth given to us by God because of our own lack of faith and trust in the living God? Now is the time to return to God given spiritual values and an upright way of life!
