Good Grief, Charlie Brown


Really? Already?

Are we going to make this an issue again? Do we really want to put our ignorance on display for everyone to see? Is this the greatest problem that this nation is facing?

First of all, this nation is not the largest Christian nation in the world. It is not and has never been a Christian nation. There is no such animal. This may be a nation with the largest Christian population. It may be a nation that in its foundation relied upon Biblical principles. It is certainly a nation that has professed to be "Christian" in both doctrine and character. But it is not and never will be a Christian nation. 

Second, with the decadence and decay of this nation running downhill at break-neck speed I wonder if this is really a great problem? Our nation is in desperate trouble. She has turned her back on God and has rejected His truth. Now, that does not come as a surprise to me since every man, woman, and child born in this nation is born dead in trespasses and sin, born into absolute darkness, born hating the light, and born with a sin nature. 

My friend, having sin-soaked, God-rejecting heathens tell me I can't or shouldn't say "Merry Christmas" is not our greatest problem. Our greatest problem is not abortion. Our greatest problem is not homosexuality.This nations greatest problem is PRIDE. Pride continues to lead men and women to reject God and His Word. Pride causes men to say, "We won't have God rule over us." Pride causes men to become their own gods. Every man wants to do what he wants to do.

Rather than lament the lack of "Christmas Spirit" and the loss of holiday greetings, let's fall on our face and begin to weep as we ask God to have mercy upon us. Let's seek God and in fasting and fear hoping for a moving of God through His people before this nation plunges any further into the abyss in which she is headed.
