Did Jesus have a Facebook Page?

Christianity 0ut of the Box

Dire Straits


Reading the news makes me want to throw up. Watching the mass lies, mudslinging and vile hate spewed at Christians brings me to my knees.

Folks, we are in dire straits in America.

The blame game, false advertising and accusations run rampant.

Slander is prominent and people disappearing. When will it stop?

Strong gay marriage support now exceeds strong opposition

Author says GOP broke Washington

State may vote on licenses for illegal immigrants

SC Gov Haley using piñata video to raise money

Dad says son beaten at bus stop as others watched

Secret Service boss: ‘I apologize’

$100 Billion Tax Question

Polls show US presidential battle tightening

Witnesses change stories in Trayvon case

I was hard pressed to find any good news. At least this one is;

Pro-Choice’ Americans At Record Low, Poll Finds

This is just America, not the world. The evidence is clear the media is more interested in promoting civil unrest, murder and anything disgusting.

The tone is negative rhetoric. Big talkers acting. Feuds are fought with demeaning gabfest. It is embarrassing.

What is worse is people fall for the lies….because they don’t know the truth. If they did the news would be opposite.

In the last 30 years I have witnessed this country decline in roller coaster fashion.

Issues we never discussed have become mainstream. Issues we never heard of are FrontPage news. Issues once thought to be ill-advised, hush-hush or deviant are accepted as normal by those who wish to promote such shameful aversions.

Explaining that to a 23-year-old is deafening. They can’t relate. Sadly, the younger generation has no idea what Ozzie and Harriet represented.

God is speaking and speaking loudly. Actually he is yelling. If you are blinded or don’t know the word, you won’t hear him. But this is what he is saying.

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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Who does this sound like? Weren’t the Israelites a difficult bunch?

Unfortunately the Israelites don’t have anything on America. We are the most grumbling, complaining, and selfish, backbiting people on earth.

But God put us here for a reason. America was founded on Godly principles. America is God’s alternative to freedom for others. He has used our people to give generously, back Israel and seek peace in other areas of the world. He built this nation on Capitalism; free market and enterprise and a constitution based on his word.

America is a blessed nation or was.

We have to get back on our knees. Now.

  1. You said a mouthful. I just completed a book called “Blood in the Street”. Due the the many acts of violence with the youth who are killing each other off by the droves. What’s so mindboggling to me is that the church seems to have taken a silent approach to this devastation and the world is rapidly spiraling out of control. Backbiting, envy, hatred, mud slinging seems to be the norm for more brownie points. I just am wondering when will it cease. When can America become the lady she was supposed to be. When will greed tturn into charity?

    Thanks so much for your spiritual eye. God is looking for a few good people who will humble themselves and pray for a healing in the land.

    • Thank you. Yes, I agree. I wonder where the church is. Many preach what people want to hear instead of what the Holy Spirit is leading them to preach.

      I have been reading and listening to many prophecies. I saw a book called the “Harbinger” by a Rabbi. He was speaking about the 9 Harbinger’s that have happened in just the last 15 years. History repeats itself; the Bible has laid it out and America was another chosen and of God.

      Once I heard this Rabbi speaking it revealed how much God really is in control.

  2. I will certainly be praying for this wonderful country, and the world. I still hope God will change His mind and give our world another chance. I loved this post of yours, Cathy. You tell it, gal!

    In Christ’s love,


  3. Amen! I can’t stand dirty news. People in today’s world have no idea what sin and being held accountable even is. Great Post!
    God Bless You!

  4. The sickness became visible in the early 60s. I walked off the podium a high school graduate steeped in ethics and old-fashioned honesty, only to realize I had stepped into a world bursting with promiscuity, greed, and treachery. In 1985 I was overcome with the need for America to seek revival, turn from its sinful ways, and weep at its fallen state. Now I weep at the singing of God Bless America and our national anthem. I cannot but sense the death of a great nation, UNDER GOD, dying in its own self-inflicted wounds. What’s worse is we exported this filth to most every nation on this globe. And I think it’s past time to even believe that God is going to forgive us. He won’t. We are too far off the course and have lost the way. GOD BLESS AMERICA??? HE ALREADY DID AND WE BURIED THOSE BLESSINGS IN THE SMUT AND FILTH WE TROD UPON EVERY DAY. GOD BLESS AMERICA??? YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Throughout history, when America has reached the bottom of the pit, God has raised up men like John Wesley, Charles Finney, D.J. Moody, and countless others to point us in the right direction. We are in the waiting stage right now.

    Come quickly Lord Jesus.

  6. All I can say is AMEN to all you have said. We truly are in dire striats and apart from Christ’s intervention there appears to be no way out of our dilemma. Great posting

  7. Hi Cathy, we are still a blessed nation. We’re just in need of revitalization. Jesus, values and morals are the first things that will start it up (again).

    Great post!
