What is the message from Tuesday's election results? Americans seem unconcerned with the $16 trillion debt, the effects of nationalized health care on businesses and individuals, the continued operation of abortion mills, and same-sex marriage, which won in liberal Maine and Maryland.
We are witnessing the unraveling of our culture. The greatest generation is no more. The values by which they mostly lived have been replaced by envy, greed and entitlement, the unholy trinity of narcissism.
Perhaps never has the verse from Romans, "And God gave them over," seemed more relevant than today. We are being given over to our lower nature.
Have we abandoned all sense of economic discipline? Do we think a $16 trillion debt is sustainable? Is government supreme? Are we happy with our standing in the world?
Keep one thing in mind. Nothing happens outside the will or knowledge of God. The prophets and Jesus predicted what would happen when we forget God. We have replaced Him with government and God is giving us over.
