Total National Impact
by Pete Ketcham
When America began to abandon it’s original Christian underpinnings, it progressively impacted every facet of our nation. The departure of our nation from God’s guidance and protection left no social or political arena untouched. It is similar to removing all the supporting columns of a building and seeing not just random areas of the building come down, but the entire building collapse. Today there is no facet of our government or social arena that has not been corrupted to some extent by godless lies, deception, and gross stupidity. Simply put, our departure from God created a total national impact.
What I am seeing today was completely unimaginable in the late 1950’s. We all have “benchmark events” that stop and cause us to realize that something significant has changed. My benchmark event here in Oregon was in 2015 when the state imposed a $135,000 fine on a mom & pop bake shop (Sweet Cakes, owners Aaron and Melissa Klein) for not baking a cake. This outrageous fine was based on a grossly unconstitutional Oregon discrimination law that benefitted the LGBT community then, and still does today.
Thus, the most impacting and powerful agenda in our nation today is the perverted influence of the LGBT community. It surpasses any Christian, or for that matter any secular special interest group’s influence in the political, social, and educational arenas. No politician (R or D), professor/teacher, or entertainer dare say anything critical about the LGBT, or else they will suffer public condemnation from all sides, and perhaps even lose their job or political position. I use the example of the LGBT issue to show how far this nation has moved from it’s foundational belief in God and the bible. (which totally condemns the LGBT activity, see Rom 1, 18-32).
The liberal godless left now openly scoffs at the Christians who “cling to their guns and bibles”, (as per Obama) as stupid uneducated buffoons who believe in some mythical God who doesn’t exist, yet our nation (and it’s leaders) throughout the last two centuries became the greatest nation in world history. This was all accomplished as a nation that based it’s moral standards on the Christian religion. This is not to imply that all citizens were bible believing Christians, many were not, but all recognized and accepted the basic code of conduct stemming from the bible, even though some knowingly violated this code through the years.
Our history has shown that God had placed the right leaders in charge of our nation at critical points in our history, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln being the two most prominent. Based on this history one could speculate that Donald Trump ( who is currently being unmerciful hammered on a daily basis), who should never have won the primary let alone the general election, but may have been placed in power to deal with another critical point of crisis coming to our nation. I do not mean to imply that Trump’s character or demeanor is in the class of Washington and Lincoln, but like General Patton ( rough but effective), he could be the one to deal effectively with what possibly could be “coming down the pike.”
As I have said before, this nation is now “sailing in uncharted waters” where it has never been before, and it is beyond the vision of most of us to discern what the future holds for us as a nation, but from what is taking place in our nation today, I am convinced there is no longer any conventional political or social means to reverse this national trend of abandoning the protection and guidance of God.
Satan has a death grip on this nation, and it is possible that only a major nationwide catastrophic event impacting the economy or security of this nation will wake the citizens up to the fact of how far down we have come, in a sense It may take a complete and very painful “Hard Reset” as the only means of returning us to our national Christian roots and underpinnings, yet I still hope and pray that somehow, someway, it may be possible to return to our national Christian roots without a catastrophic event.
