How Much More Insanity Must We Endure as Americans

You have no further to look for the answer to why evil is exalted than the paralysis that grips the American pulpit and the indifference of the church.

University classes, where people wear shoe lifts to make everyone the same height to enforce equality, is total bananas.

Amazon banning books is tyranny.

More lunacy: The Supreme Court refusing act on voter fraud is, well, I’ll let Clarence Thomas say it: “The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence.” 

Congress bullying media outlets not to carry Fox News, OAN and Newsmax is Nazism.

Coca-Cola teaching a racist class against white people is vile.

Ending deportations of killers and rapists―absolutely insane.

You see it all around you. Wokeness on steroids. Democrats encircling the earth with witch hunts. City after city endangered by wacko laws—a growing pseudo-outrage ripping the very fabric of American life to shreds.

How much more do we have to take? Believe it or not—that is up to us. Yes, we must take it, but only until we are fed up enough to really do something about it.

So, you ask: What does, ‘really doing something about it,’ look like?

Is the answer armed revolution? No! No violence or rioting is needed or justified. The answer is right under our nose. Tonight, I was on Flashpoint on the Victory Channel with Pastor Gene Bailey, Senator Jason Rapert, Abby Johnson, and Dutch Sheets. The issue we confronted during this broadcast was abortion. Throughout the program, something kept coming up as a cause of our crisis. It also answered the question: Why have abortions continued to take place for decade after decade?

At first, the usual suspects were addressed. Immorality drives abortion. Money drives abortions. But what permits it to survive? The answer echoed, at one point or another, from every one of us: the cowardice of Christian leaders.

That cowardice explains the deafening silence in our pulpits. That cowardice explains why American Christians cannot act as a single force to bring change: Because of the need for prominence. The need for acceptance. The need for a massive congregation. Those needs are the sorry substitutes for moral outrage that Satan has sold to pastors and Christian leaders.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says “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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.” But what is lost in our constant quoting of this promise is one glaring sin: OUR WICKED WAYS!

That tens of millions of Christians can go online and listen to their favorite preacher, preach on sub-topics, New Age pep talks, false imperatives, and fantasies about the supernatural, is wicked. These are our wicked ways!

The American church is still asleep. And their managers are enjoying the slumber of the masses way too much to wake them up. We are still so steeped in ‘Church incorporated’ that none of the disasters America is experiencing are enough to wake us up. Think about it! Why is not the pandemic, the stolen election, the mass censorship, legalized drugs, legalized gay marriage, the fact that our cities are now open sewers of immorality, that abortion is not just accepted, but enshrined in the American psyche, still not enough to make us turn from our wicked ways?

We torture the rare voices that are contending for revival. They are trying to wake up the church, but they find themselves in a living nightmare. They discover that the majority of believers in America are fast asleep.

You have no further to look for the answer to why evil is exalted than the paralysis that grips the American pulpit and the indifference of the church. Christians need to drop ‘business as usual’ and unify under the banner of decency.  Yes, I am being stern! But the stakes are too high to spare anyone’s feelings.

And the most frustrating part of all this is the fact that we can so easily prevent impending disaster if we will just come together and unify. Not oneness of doctrine or tradition—but unity for the sake of decency!

If everyone from Mark Zuckerberg to Chuck Schumer to John Roberts could feel the fire of an awakened American Church—a church willing to say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” — this madness would fold like a house of cards!
