Since 1962 - It’s Been Exponential!

Many Americans today look out the windows of their self-centered, narcissistic lives and say, “How did we get to this point in our country?” To ask the question is to answer it. Because of our day’s stormy and dreary moral and social climate, people begin to look for scapegoats for all their ills. They rarely start by looking in the mirror.

Americans today - more so than at any other time - are mostly oblivious and ignorant of history and the changing philosophies of what brought us to this point. They are stuck in the mire of today’s social climate and cannot see past it. It is difficult to see when immersed in a rapidly decaying cultural environment.

Many events have set the stage for the decadent social conditions that now confront us. A step backward is needed to “put all the pieces” on the table for objectively analyzing and observing such trends and influences on American culture and society.

When America began to abandon its Judeo-Christian values by forsaking Holy Scripture truth and the Person of Almighty God, our nation’s foundation began to fracture while the poisonous waters of godless influences subtly leaked into and permeated our culture.

When America began to abandon its Judeo-Christian values by forsaking Holy Scripture truth and the Person of Almighty God, our nation’s foundation began to fracture while the poisonous waters of godless influences subtly leaked into and permeated our culture. This slow and steady tide began to turn into a steady intensifying river, which opened wide the doors to the secular liberal and progressive ideologies and trends of the 1870’s, the promotion of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, Marxist Ideals, the “Roaring 20’s”, Eugenics, Freudian psychology, The Scopes trials, Secular Rationalism, etc.

The new technologies of those days - radio, picture shows/ movies, television, press publications, etc. - were used to promote secular ideologies as never before possible. The underlying current of secularism quickly flooded our Judeo-Christian based culture. It was left for the Baby Boomer generation - the most pampered, spoiled and narcissistic generation of Americans - to open wide the door for the societal chaos and anarchy of the 1960’s to follow.

The new technologies of those days - radio, picture shows/ movies, television, press publications, etc. - were used to promote secular ideologies as never before possible.

By 1962, the time and day was ripe for Lucifer, i.e., Satan (Luke 4:5-6; Eph.2:1-3) to bring about the greatest coup in the brief 350 year history of America: the removal of Prayer and Almighty God from our public schools. This single act has unleashed such a catastrophic tsunami of immorality, vice, disease, poverty, and many other societal ills, that our nation has never recovered from it - nor will it ever. We have reaped the whirlwind from the 60’s and are now living in the wake of its horrific aftermath.

On June 25, 1962, the Supreme Court first struck down school prayer by prohibiting students from using this simple invocation:” Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee and beg Thy blessing upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our Country.” Following this case, the Court began methodically expelling other religious (Judeo-Christian) principles; the effects have been evident (quoted from David Barton, Wallbuilder Ministries)

With the removal of prayer, healthy moral boundaries and laws, personal accountability, and the healthy fear (reverence) of Almighty God, our nation’s foundations have been disintegrating right before our eyes. Look at the demographics (graphs) of the vices and their consequences since 1962. It has been exponential!

Since this pivotal year of 1962, we have seen in American culture an exponential increase in godlessness: abortions, unwed teen and adult pregnancies, STD’s, adultery, rape, lewdness, divorce, crime, violence/ domestic violence, theft, murder, gang violence, the disintegrating family unit, the increase and acceptance of sodomy (homosexuality), heterosexual immorality, rape, acceptance and promotion of all vices, total decadence in music and fashion, alcoholism, drug use and addiction, sex addiction, Anti-Semitism, anti-Bible bias, anti-Christian bias, acultic spiritualism, demonic activity, apathy, callousness, promotion of pornography, narcissism, a decline in education on all levels, promotion of leftist ideals, social programs, growth of government and increase in bureaucratic laws (socialism), technological advances for promoting all kinds of vices and immorality, and I can go on and on!

When moral boundaries and the natural laws of Nature’s Creator are cast aside and scoffed at, demonized as intrusive and intolerant, what can hold back the tsunami of the unbridled passions of man that must follow? (Isaiah 5:20)

God’s Word speaks about the conditions of humanity just before Christ would come to earth and establish His Kingdom reign for a thousand years.

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." (2 Tim. 3:1-7)

"Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness) doth already work: only he (The Holy Spirit) who now letteth will let (restrain), until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked (Anti-Christ) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (2 Thess. 2:5-12)

The abandonment of sound morals and natural laws and disowning a right relationship to one’s Creator Almighty God, has created the very social environment we find ourselves living in today. Right here in America we are reaping the very consequences which God’s Word and our Founding Fathers had warned us about (Gal 6:7-8). Almighty God said it would be!

Oh, that the scoffers of today would just believe God and His Word and turn to their Creator with a contrite and humble heart (Isaiah 48:18), but they will not, nor will they in the future (Rev. 16:9)! That is why there is coming an Anti-Christ and an all-out global war against God that climaxes at the battle of Armageddon! (Psalm 2, Rev. 19:11-21)

1962 was the year in America’s history when our nation - just like the Titanic - hit the iceberg of godlessness, and we’ve been taking in the “lifeless” waters of godless secularism ever since. We are at the verge of the collapse of a Judeo-Christian America. When this event comes to pass, the vacuum will be filled with a godless, secular, fascist government. The death of a democratic/ republican form of capitalist government is always ends with fascism! Always!

The death of a democratic/ republican form of capitalist government is always ends with fascism! Always!

At Christ’s second coming when He returns and destroys the global armies at Armageddon (Is. 24, Zechariah 14:1-4,12; Matt 25:31-32, Rev. 16:16, 19:19-21), He will also set up His Kingdom in righteousness (Dan 2:44-45, 7:13-14, Zech. 14:16-21). Those saved of the nations - after Armageddon judgement - will have the privilege of worshiping and honoring Him on His throne in Jerusalem for a thousand years (Is. 19:16-25, Zech. 14:16-21, Matt 25:31-46, Rev 7:9-14). His coming will set in motion the beginning of the exponential blessing of Almighty God on this earth (Isaiah 11:1-10, 14:7, 35:1-10, 65:16,25, Hab 2:14). These present evil days sound off as a mighty trumpet (shofar) blast warning all that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon to judge the wickedness of fallen man (2 Thess. 2:10-12, Rev 14:14-20)! Oh, the justice and righteousness of Almighty God in which all of God’s people can rejoice!

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? He alone is the only sure “Life Raft” to deliver you from this sinking, godless world and God’s coming wrath (judgment) upon it (1 Thess. 1:9-10). My friend, stop putting off the reality of your desperate need for Christ's saving grace in your life and receive Him today (John 1:12)! You will never be the same (2 Cor. 5:17-21)!

In these days of godless exponentialism, may Almighty God give comfort to your hearts and strengthen you!

The Kingdom of heaven is at hand!

In a day when we are saying, "to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits", (Isa 30:10) such a word is needed.

Having much the same thoughts myself, i began collecting stats a few years ago, quantifying America's War with GOD

Thank God for your commitment to Christ. I like your line, "Servants of Christ First, Conservatives Second".

You can be a conservative and not be Christian, but you cannot be a faithful Christian in America and not be a conservative.

The parallel with Israel, which was also given much light and blessed, is too apparent:

(Deu 4:7-8) "For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? {8} And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?"

(Hosea 8:12) "I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing."

(Hosea 8:3-4) "Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.

{4} They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off."

(Deu 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. {30} When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;

(Hosea 13:9) "O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help."

Puts me in mind of a old song:

We Shall See The King Lyrics – J.B. Vaughan


VERSE 1:
There’s a blessed time that’s com-ing, coming soon
It may be evening, morning or at noon
There’ll be a wedding of the Bride, united with the groom
We shall see the King when He comes

CHORUS:
We shall see the King, we shall see the King
We shall see the King when He comes
He is coming in pow’r, we’ll hail the blessed hour
We shall see the King when He comes

VERSE 2:
Are you ready should the Savior call today?
Would Jesus say, “Well done,” or “Go away”?
He’s building a home for the pure
The vile can never stay
We shall see the King when He comes

VERSE 3:
O, my brother, are you ready for the call?
We’ll crown our Savior King and Lord of all
All the kingdoms of this world
Shall soon before Him fall
We shall see the King when He comes

God bless you Brothers,

The Cold Texan
