Psalm 11:3 “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
Another Islamic Jihadist terror attack in Nice France murdering 84 including 10 children injuring 100 others. It was carried out by a known Muslim career criminal from Tunisia who emigrated to France named Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel. May God give comfort and strength to those who lost loved ones and may God help France at this hour.
Some political ideologues and Progressives believe that America is the problem in the world today and if we’d get out of the affairs in our world it would be a better place. Actually just the opposite is true. We see what happens when our influence is removed or the threat of us taking righteous actions is taken off the table. The vacuum is filled with bad players. A murderous ideology grows exporting it’s evil around the globe, the Russian Bear invades countries and clamps down on religious rights, China threatens our military, Iran continues its run to nuclear armament, ISIS sets up an Islamic caliphate, Al Qaeda grows, Hamas continues to attack our greatest partner for peace in the Middle East and …. Since 9/11, we have had 28,135 terrorist attacks committed by Islamic jihadists that have occurred around the world. Only God can really keep us safe but He has also ordained government to protect us as well. Our American government, founded on many Godly principles, exists for one purpose only and that is to secure the equal natural rights of its citizens (i.e. life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness). Our Founding Fathers realized that would require a government to defend and protect those rights from domestic threats and foreign threats. We must have a leader who recognizes evil and who is not afraid to call it out.
Our President goes out of his way to protect the image of Islam, has training materials in our military and intelligence community scrubbed and purged of offensive material to Muslims, and is hell bent on bringing insufficiently screened immigrants from countries where an Islamic Caliphate is attempting to rise up (The US accepts less than 3 % Christian refugees, 96 % Muslims). I am praying that our President has a mind altering change to his worldview. This is the hope and change that needs to happen and “Yes he can.” A spiritual worldview of mankind would see:
A cursed creation (fallen world) Romans 8:19, 20.
Man is a sinner, and, apart from God, is not in himself good (fallen man) Ephesians 2:1-3.
There is a devil (fallen angel) lose in the Earth Revelation 12:7-12.
After man’s sin in Genesis 3:1-7, God posted an armed guard even in the Garden of Eden Genesis 3:24. Even God recognized a need for secure borders along with a strong and armed defense.
Man left to himself would destroy the entire human race Genesis 6:5, 11, 13 (only 8 righteous people left).
