See, this alone I found, that God made man upright, but they have sought out many schemes. —Proverbs 7:29

Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, the heart of the children of man is fully set to do evil. —Proverbs 8:11

Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good. —Proverbs 9:18

But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough. —II Corinthians 11:3:4

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. —II Corinthians 11:13-15

            God did not make man to be a wicked sinner that would turn against Him.  But since mankind turned their back on our Lord God Almighty, they have sought out many schemes against Him.  Yes, mankind even will “invent ways of doing evil.”  This is not what God intended, but this is what mankind has chosen.

            When justice is not carried out quickly the “the heart of the children of man is fully set to do evil.”  Thus, lawlessness and evil begin to encompass a people and a country as we see happening in the United States and other places.  Demonic activity increases.  One sinful lifestyle “destroys much good” —much more and better than any weapons of war can.  Like rottenness on the inside of an apple is the wickedness of the nation.  The decay and sinful destruction come from within the nation and not from without.

            For the United States the sinful, inward, national rottenness is spreading like gangrene.  Are we surprised?  We should not be.  The United States has never been a Christian nation— a theocracy— but followers of Jesus have surely had an impact on the founding of this nation.  The early historical documents, the early colleges and lives of many of the founders bear this out.  There cannot be any refutation of this, only denial and historical reinventing. 

            Don’t want prayer in schools then what we have is a result of that.  Don’t want Bible reading in schools then what we have today is a large result of that.  Don’t want God involved in our government then only decadent, sinful decay takes over.  This is what we have today and it is caused by national decisions to deny, disobey and turn our back on God.

            The cunning, deceiving Satan has given the nation a different supposedly enlightened direction.  It is only evil disguised and a deception— smooth talkers with evil intentions in their hearts— demonically manipulated.  Fellow follower of Jesus let us be discerning and faithful to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Beware of the deception and manipulation of evil mankind.  May it be so!  Yes, Dear Father, may we stick to Your Word and ways by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.
