In the Book of Hebrews, Chapter 11, are the names of some of the heroes of the Bible: Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Rahab, and Joshua, as well as many more throughout the Scriptures such as the apostles who died for the Lord, John the Baptist, and Jesus Himself. All of these great leaders were willing to put their lives in harm's way because of their faith in the living God. They made decisions, spoke against injustice, and preached against sins classified as immorality and abominations in front of their peers, their culture, and political and religious leaders.
"(31) By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. (32) And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: (33)Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. (34)Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. (35)Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: (36)And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: (37)They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (38)(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
(39) And these all, having obtained a good report through faith..." Hebrews 11:31-39 (KJV)
In the political and church arenas today in contemporary America, as well as in other nations, most leaders are failing miserably to be men and women of faith. They cave in to the pressures of today’s immoral culture. In attempting to be politically correct, they fail to classify such behaviors as abortion, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, and same-sex marriage as sin.
In the various political parties, whether it be liberal or conservative Democrats, central or conservative Republicans, moderate or conservative Independents, the different church denominations from those who reject a biblical world view to churches that are doctrinally sound, America is not hearing a strong, clear denunciation of lifestyles classified in the Bible as abominations.
Truly, the church in America, as well as America itself, which was once proud to be a Christian nation, is in a Great Falling Away from Truth, creating an immoral society which attacks the people who are living according to the values and behaviors Jesus taught.
The immoral liberal left, which hates the values recorded in the Bible and taught by Jesus, have so intimidated political and Christian church leaders, as well as believers themselves. Therefore, the fact that abortion, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, and same-sex marriage are sin is never stated as an argument against the passing of ungodly legislation.
America is in a spiritual battle which will either result in this nation identifying as a Christian nation again or following the leader of the New World Order!
"And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom; but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries."
Unless Christians live by faith once again, this nation is damned!
