My fear for our nation:

Ezekiel 16:
49  "Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy."

We know of course about the homosexuality and rape committed in Sodom.

But God says these were symptoms. The truly serious sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness. Plus they didn't help the poor.

Oh, God never commanded Israel to force the rich to give handouts to the poor. But He did tell them to "strengthen the hand;" insure justice for those who couldn't pay for it, make sure they could afford good education for their children, loan them money to start their own business, feed them from your own pantry until they get back on their feet.

Any nation that commits these sins will eventually degenerate into homosexuality and rape.

50 "And they were haughty, and committed abomination before Me: therefore I took them away as I saw good."

Sodom thought she was too good to follow God. That is why God destroyed her.

Are Americans Prideful? (think about all our "self esteem" attitudes)

Are Americans Gluttonous ? (need I ask? and not just of food, but entertainment, clothes, etc.)

Are  Americans lazy? (yep)

Do Americans keep the poor down by taxing their jobs away and giving them a biddling to live on instead, and THEN complaining about lazy people who "won't" work?

Do Americans insist that poor children must attend the lowest quality education available in our nation? (Does ANYONE still believe PS is a quality education? How much better if we would give the poor food and homeschool materials so their children have a chance out?)

We're in trouble people.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
