A Dumb Nation

Our nation, according to media, is on a fast track to chaos. We are making choices that not only affect the immediate population but for generations to come. Deciding when and how to fight with other countries, when to step in and make decisions for other countries; laws to change about our own government system; who and when to celebrate; how and when to be “politically correct” in order to not offend someone. More and more, the news portrays people who want to fight for this or that at the expense of making everyone agree with their decision. News flash, we are all different and are not going to agree on many topics. Why not just live the way you want to and leave everyone out of it? It makes logical sense that a church in Kansas, claiming to be Baptist, make loud professions against things other people’s business, while claiming to be “biblical”. This group gives the world a stereotype of “crazy Christians”. For the record, I may be a crazy Christian and I think these people are demonic and falling into the typical definition of “fools”. Here’s the evidence that we are living among fools: “fools despise wisdom and discipline”; “how long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?”; “The way of a fool seems right to him”; “a fool exposes his folly”; “fools mock at making amends for sin” (Proverbs 1:7,22; 12:15; 13:16; 14:9). There are many proverb warnings about “fools”. We are among them so we need to know how to handle and think on them. God says, “The wicked (fool) plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked for He knows their day is coming” (Psalm 37:12-13). True followers of Christ must follow the example, without letting the name of Christ be associated with idiots claiming to be Christians. How can one tell? Take the Kansas church for example: they protest military funerals and the latest ACBC Conference where Christian counselors were being trained how to effectively counsel with those with transgender issues. What biblical stance was being violated at either of these functions for the need of folks to rise in protest? Christ would honor fallen soldiers and be there to carry the casket. He would also be at an ACBC Conference to give wisdom and understanding for those counseling others. Use the old cliché “What would Jesus do” anytime you hear or see Christians in the news or around the office before you make assumptions about Christianity in general. Nobody is perfect and no one can represent Christ as well as Himself. Churches are full of sinners! Jesus says, “I have come not to call the righteous, but sinners” (Matthew 9:13).
