A Godless GOP?!?

"He set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal that he built in Samaria.  Ahab...did more to provoke the LORD, the God of Israel, to anger than all the Kings of Israel before him." 1 Kings 16:32-33

Since the election, the usual suspects have issued the predictable bromides about how the Republican party lost because it's 'too Christian.'  Unfortunately, this idea might be gaining traction.

Purging God is never described as such.  It's usually called "setting aside 'social issues' " to "focus on the economy."  But make no mistake, "setting aside social issues" is a euphemism for purging God.

The root cause of America's current crisis is that, after our founding as a God-fearing nation, we turned our back on God in the 1960's.  It's why we're broke.  It's why our families are falling apart.  Heck, it explains why we can't go six weeks without some nut shooting a bunch of people.  This blog post isn't a step-by-step history lesson (two examples: here and here), but a warning of peril ahead.

I've written recently about why conservatives need to seek God on a personal level.  That's step one, but we also need to honor Him in our social institutions.  America needs God in more social institutions, not fewer.

Bad things happen to nations that turn their back on God; choose carefully Republicans.


  1. 2 Chronicles 7:14

    "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
