As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:
“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”
I remember looking at a book once that was titled “What Men Have Learned from History.” As I opened the 100-page book, I found that the pages were all blank. The point was well made. Men do not learn from history. Unfortunately, society has proven this to be the case over and over again. In America today you can see the clear digression of society. What was once evil in our eyes some now call good. The high standards of virtue and morality that were once considered to be the foundation of our families are now laughed at and called “old fashioned” and “outdated.”
We now live in a nation where “tolerance” has become some sort of virtue, and “intolerance” for the things that go against God’s Word is called “hate.” The truth is God is love (1 John 4:8), and God gave His Law because He loves. Yet, America has now become so wise in her own eyes that its people have become fools (Romans 1:22).
Those who fought, bled, and died for our country to establish our Constitution, those who sacrificed to make us free were looked upon as heroes. Now, those who stick to the Constitution and fight to make sure it is adhered to are demonized, criticized by the state-run media and labeled “intolerant haters.”
We now live in a country where “evangelical Christians” are labeled by our own military as No. 1 on the list of terrorists; when if it were not for the “evangelical Christians” found in the “Black-Robed Regiment” who fought to give us this country, we would not have a nation to label anyone anything.
Then there are the do-nothings who give way to apathy. They say, “This is America, it will never happen here!” – as they look at the blank pages in the book of history once again and ignore all the signs of the times that clearly point out tyranny in our government, lawlessness and an attack against all that is good.
What has happened, America? Why have we given over to this change from the founding values of our great nation to the lawlessness we see today? The Bible clearly says in Proverbs 24:21, “… meddle not with them that are given to change.” So why are we changing?
America for the most part has cowered shamefully and refused to lawfully fight against evils.
It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Are we allowing our nation to be destroyed? Yes. Are we seeing judgment turned backwards? Yes. But the real question is, are YOU willing to stand up and do something about it? ________ (Your answer here). That remains to be seen.
It’s time for Americans to rise up, learn from the past, and say enough is enough.
