America Has Walked Away From The Old Paths

images (1) Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken. (Jeremiah:6:16-17)

As a Christian  I cannot understand why ;

The American people do not want to walk in the "good way" and find that "rest for their souls"? Why wouldn't they listen and why don’t they want to hear what God has to say? It is because they are so far from doing things God's way and they are so blind by their doings that they cannot relate to the "old paths." Those true and tried ways. That is because, their idea of "good" is not God's idea of good, and the "rest" they seek after is  not the God’s rest. People in this country has been doing their own thing, not what God wants. For years and years they have pushed God's way beyond their interests or what they want to do and how they want to live. This condition can even be seen in our churches. And it is not just something that has happen in our time and in our churches. Just read about Israel in the scriptures and you will see that it is not unique to the United States. Israel was the same way in Bible days.

 When I was growing up people walked in the true and tried ways. They found rest for their souls. People obeyed God’s law, They went to church, as a family, on Sundays (morning and night), The preacher who pastured the flock keep them on that narrow road. He preached Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The soul of  his  sheep were far more important than anything else. He made house calls to their home, anointed the sick and prayed for them, preached what says the Lord, He called sin just what it is “Sin”.  It was sin if you murdered an unborn baby (there was laws against it), if a person was a homosexual  they hid in the closet because it was an abomination. To join most  churches back then a person confessed Christ and come clean with the sin problem and followed Christ. You lived by the teachings that were found in the word of God. Now we find in some church denominations homosexuals are members, some churches have homosexual preachers behind the pulpit and are allowing anybody to join just for the numbers and the money. Homosexuals, now, want their own Bible as well as their own life style inside the churches of our Lord Jesus Christ. Church denominations that were once on fire for the Lord and followed the old paths are now lowering their standards and are leading people on that broad road of destruction. Some churches are taking the cross down and are now calling their churches campuses.

What really shocked me (but I guess it Didn’t) was the democrats left God out of their platform. First time since there was a Democrat convention. When they were called on about this it was put back on their platform for a vote and half the people voted “NO” they did not want God on the platform and did not want to recognize Him. Anything that reflects Christ in our school, our court rooms, and government buildings is being removed. Our president has the pictures of Christ covered up when ever he speaks. This is a sad day for our country. We have a leader that jokes about the scriptures found in God’s Holy Word, but quotes the Koran as if means something to him. The family unit, most of our churches and preachers, as well as the government are all on that broad road to destruction. What ever happen to “In God We Trust”. It is a time for all true born again believers to stay close to God and seek Him.
