There is no political solution to America’s problem because it is a sin problem. Americans are choosing evil. A nation would not go down the path that America is going down if moral people were in control. In a democratic republic evil leaders can only rule if the majority of voters want them in office. There is evil taking place all over this land because the majority of people in America are either partaking in those evils, tolerating those evils, accommodating those evils, or they are doing nothing about those evils that prevail.
Some have said that the only way to turn America around is to convert unbelievers to Christianity. However, converting people to the American version of Christendumb is not going to bring change in America because Christendumb enables these evils and it’s part of the problem.
Sure, there would be a real change if the majority in America were actually converted to true Christianity, but since most Christian leaders in America promote Christendumb, the true Christian message of salvation will not even be heard in most churches.
Contrary to the thinking of some, a nation cannot be converted to Christianity anyway. There are wheat and tares in all nations and tares planted by the Devil cannot be converted. The Devil has obviously planted a whole lot of tares on the American coasts and in some cities of America. The evil political leaders of this country would not be in place if the majority of Americans opposed them. However, American Christiandumb has done nothing to stop evil and has even enabled the sons of the Devil to take control in many ways.
Converting people to Christ will make better nations but nations as a whole cannot be converted to Christ in this age. Some nations still have very limited knowledge of Christ at all. So, obviously God still deals with Gentile nations through universal or natural law during this age. A nation can repent of its evils and the path that a nation chooses can be altered even apart from people converting to Christ.
The people of Nineveh through Jonah understood that breaking natural moral laws (like they were quite aware that they were doing) was about to bring swift destruction on their head and they repented and made some effort to change their ways.
Ever since Adam and Eve ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, humans have had the capacity to know the difference. That is why God told Cain to choose to do what is right, because if humans choose evil, sin will possess them and overcome them. The reason for all the evil we see in the world today is because people are choosing to do evil rather than doing good. Humans are without excuse, they naturally know what is evil. There are certain things that the Lord requires of all people and nations to receive his blessings on earth no matter if they are aware that YHWH gives eternal salvation or not.
Mic 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
I think if people and nations try to do this with the understanding that they have, they will receive natural blessings in this world. This universal law of choosing what is just or good is why some nations that do not have any knowledge of God’s Christ still prosper.
Yes, history tells us that nations and people without any relationship with the true God of the Bible can prosper, while those that claim to know God but kill their young, oppress the innocent, embrace unnatural evils and act like brute beasts receive swift judgment from God. There are natural universal laws that fall on all mortal beings and nations alike without favor. If anyone thinks otherwise, foolishly burn your crop field and see if your Christianity gets you a bounty from God at time of harvest, or go jump off a cliff and see if your Christian salvation keeps your natural body alive.
Therefore, the best we can hope for in America, is that Americans will somehow hear from God and change directions. Americans must stop choosing evil and must choose to do what is just and right. People doing evil generally know it and they can stop doing evil unless they love their sins more than doing what is right. If people or nations chose to do evil they will reap the natural consequences. The battle for America’s survival hinges around Americans doing what is right. It is not about making America into a Christian nation. There is no such thing as a Christian nation on earth in this age.
Nations of the world are judged on natural morality not on the spiritual rebirth of chosen people within that nation. The redeemed of the Lord of this age are an elect assembly of people who by God’s grace and our acceptance of His Christ are called out through the Spirit to occupy and be salt and light to the world until the Lord returns. The faithful are given the promise of ruling and reigning on earth with the Lord during the Kingdom age.
Most that receive salvation of their souls in eternity will never be part of the elect Bride of Christ. One place many in the Christian Church have it wrong, is in thinking that all people will either go to Heaven or Hell. There will be a New Earth where most people will dwell. Heaven is where God is. During the eternal age to come we are told that God and the Lamb will dwell in the Holy City. Not all will attain the privilege of dwelling in the Holy City with God and His Son.
In any great kingdom not all are married to the King nor are all blood relatives. Humankind that are not married to the King or blood relatives of the King or members of the King’s court, in the eternal age either dwell on the New Earth or they are in the Lake of Fire. Apart from the Bride of Christ being taken to be with the Lord, there is still wheat and tares that will be harvested by angels at the end of the age.
For evil to flourish in any nation, all that is required under natural law is that good men do nothing to resist it. This has always been the natural cycle on earth and this conflict between good and evil will remain until the end of the age. The wisest man ever created told us about these natural cycles when he said:
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Solomon tells us in this passage there are good times and bad times on earth. Evil choices in this nation will soon bring upon America the bad times that Solomon mentioned, unless moral men do something causing a change of direction.
Therefore, the question is not how we convert this nation. We cannot. America has become a lot like Nineveh and American Christian preachers that are supposed to be preaching the word of God to America have become a lot like Jonah. The next event for them is the storm.
The Jonah’s can and must warn the nation but who in the Church will even speak the truth from God’s word to America? Most preachers “representing God” to America now occupy cabins on the USS Jakesosteenbell that is being purpose driven toward Tarshish by the American mega blowhards of Christiandumb.
I suppose that God will deal with those leaders of Christiandumb that are traveling to Tarshish to acquire all kinds of worldly riches for themselves. They will be thrown overboard during the coming storm. America might even come to repent through the preaching of some of these latter-day Jonah’s, but it is not likely to happen until some great personal tribulation convinces them to actually speak God’s word to America.
