Why is there so much turmoil and chaos in America?

 

The answer to the above question is quite simple in one respect, and quite complex in another.

The baseline answer to America’s present condition is  that the Constitution of the United State is “wholly inadequate” for the governance of a people who are not Christian.  In a much larger world, where peoples were divided by time and space and the availability of philosophical, historical,  social and cultural knowledge was primitive compared to today, our Founders did not realize that the term religion could mean a wide array of desperate philosophies which were not compatible.  Nor could they have contemplated and understood the present state of man in terms of “closeness” and congestion.

Christianity and the Bible provided a broadly based common view of the world and life.  There were differences within Christianity, and those differences had helped cause continued war among the Christian nations of Europe.  But America offered sufficient land – space and lack of established special interests at the time of its settlement and colonization and creation of this nation, that those conflicts did not carry over to America in a defining way.   Instead, our founders being sensitive to the differences between the Christian denominations, built in a tolerance within the broader Christianity.  A review of the religious toleration clauses of the colonial and early state Charters and Constitutions clearly indicate it was tolerance for the different Christian denominations which were central in their minds.

In my life time, and probably before, intellectuals have sought to expand or re-write the meanings of the Founders.  The concept of a “living” Constitution embraces the idea of historiography (meaning the change – ability of the meaning of words depending upon fashion) as a less cumbersome way of modifying the practical aspects of the Constitution in daily life.  This is not what the Founders intended.  They were very clear about the limited role of the Courts, and the means to change the Constitution.  But today’s intellectuals, the ruling elite, and those in political governance, prefer to govern through the Courts rather than the ballot box and legislature.  Progressives prefer court-dictated changes because it is easier to make happen, and can be micro managed in terms of intent.

The common foundation of Christianity was not just one of morality in terms of the Ten Commandments, but was also an understanding of the spirit as the essential breath within the law.  Christ’s teachings are filled with this approach.  It is not just the words of the law which are important but their spirit, and without the spirit, the words whither and die.

America is in chaos because the people have moved away from the Christianity, which God used to create the United States of America. The people moved away, in part, because the ruling elite erased the history of America (1492 – 1789). and mostly because, as in the Old Testament of the Bible, we are no better than the people of Israel in our constant desire to do as we please, rather than please God.  The spirit of the Constitution, spoken of above, should be the spirit of God, through the American people and applied to life.  That is precisely what the Founders intended.  (This point will be fought tooth and nail by the intellectuals, and most may believe them because most are completely unaware of the history of this nation, combined with a desire to live and let live.)

Christianity is under attack by Satan through a wide variety of means, and the Pulpit has been less than vigilant or energetic in its defense of the Christian foundation of the Constitution and our nation.  Between the electronic devices which run a 24  – 7 river of sin at the hearts and minds of the people,  the rising challenge of Islam around the world, and the spiritual corruption of both the American people and its ruling elite. only the power of God has prevented collapse before now.  But, it appears, it is coming.

America’s lurch towards Donald Trump appears to be the same as the Jewish people calling for a King.  God attempted to dissuade his chosen people of that choice, but reluctantly allowed the people to choose that course, choice being the optimum operational theme throughout the Bible.  Americans have no idea how to look to God for the answer to our problems and challenges; instead we have become addicted to government as the answer.  Modern liberal thought has become the idol, and America is living that idolatry now.

I have written before and will continue to do so, that what America needs is a national revival, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 .  and for those who agree, I can only commend to you, pray for such an event.

  1. atimetoshare.me says:

    I agree that our country is no longer a Christian nation – as President Obama once stated. The coming together of many religions and theologies has put us in the same category as the children of Israel as they were exposed to many other gods. I have a friend who believes there is only one god, so we all must believe in the same one. Buddha and Mohammed are not gods. Riches and fame are not gods, yet they are worshiped as such. Corruption easily takes over the world, because the true foundation has been ignored. The only true God is the One who created the world and redeemed it with the blood of his only Son. Thanks for putting this out there.

  2. Revival, NOT government is the only thing that CAN save America. Whether it is God’s will at this time is anyone’s guess, because God Almighty, through our Redeemer, Jesus Christ is in the process of saving souls, not countries. However, as a lover of the land I was born in and thankful to God Almighty for the blessings I do have, I pray for her everyday. BUT — I pray for revival that men will have their hearts and spirits reawakened to a relationship with our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit!
    We need a call to arms, to confess our own sins, to seek the power of the Holy Spirit to stand up for the Name of Christ Jesus and to pray for others. It is true that the only prayer that God CAN hear because of the wall of sin, is a prayer of repentance. WE NEED REVIVAL or very, very soon this country will be lost forever!
    Great post as usual Brother Bruce!!
