The Spiritual Division of America
Mark Twain said, “It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” I will tie this in later or when I end with prayer.
Why this country is so politically divided? The answer is easy, Jesus! America is Politically Divided because she is Spiritually Divided. There are the Culture Values and the Christian Values. As a Christian I cannot support a man or a party who goes against Christian Values. I don't care if they are Democrat, Republican or some other party, they will not get my vote if they support same sex marriage, homosexuality, abortion and other blatant sins against the Lord.
A wise old pastor told his congregation, "I can't tell you who to vote for but I can tell you that God will hold you accountable for voting against Him." The crowd who cried CRUCIFY HIM is alive and well in this generation! The nominal Christian (in name only) is as finicky as the crowd that crucified Jesus. They want to love the culture and Christ too. That's impossible! The Bible is clear, "if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
The Pope called for all the religions in the world to promote peace. That sounds real spiritual and good but he needs to read the Bible. Jesus didn't come to bring peace but division. Only those who accept Him as their personal Savior can know real peace. No Jesus, No Peace, Know Jesus, Know Peace!
It looks like the culture is winning this war but I have good news, I've read the end of the Book and we win!
The nominal Christian will be the most surprised people on Judgement Day, they are the ones who have been fooled. Matthew 7:22-23:
"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity".
These are people who claim to be Christian but Jesus said their works were a sin!
Who are you following, Christ or the Culture?
Father I pray that someone reading this message will come to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord. Father I realize those who have been fooled will be the hardest to convince. Many are religious but lost. They worship the culture rather than the creator. Lord if there is someone like that reading this, please convict them. I pray they will confess they are a sinner, repent and ask you to save them. I pray this in Jesus Name, Amen!
If you need any help, please let me know. I love you no matter what your spiritual condition might be. I'm only a sinner saved by grace preaching truth! God Bless!
