George Gallop asserts, “The churches of America face no greater challenge in this century
than overcoming Biblical illiteracy.”
Judges 17:6 “In those days…every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”
Only three days after taking office, President Barack Obama struck down the Bush administration’s ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions. According to an AP report, the President did this, “…without coverage by the media…” and AP referred to it as “the quiet signing…”
In February, an AP story reported, “President Barack Obama plans to repeal a Bush administration rule that has become a flash point in the debate over a doctor’s right not to participate in abortions.”
The First Commandment says, “I am the LORD your God…You shall have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:2-3
We’re in trouble, beloved. Because we do not know the Bible, we do not understand God’s precepts. With only our personal opinions to guide us, we “did what was right” in our own eyes and elected leaders who are now doing what is right “in their own eyes.”
Today in a ceremony at 11 a.m., the President of the United States plans to reverse the former President’s executive order limiting federal funding resulting in the destruction of human embryos. “The reversal would permit the government to fund embryonic stem cell research, a practice that recent discoveries in the area of adult stem cell research has made less necessary…”
The tragedy is that, as they have throughout history, innocents will suffer when leaders defy God. I cringe to think of what is coming our way after today’s ceremony.
Pray. Pray for our President. Pray for our leaders. Pray for our country. Pray for your children.
