ATHEISM · Sin · The Great Apostasy

REMEMBER WHEN….

People are forever trying to make things “better” aren’t they?  They think of “progress” like it’s a good thing.  Well I’m here writing to you, to ask a few questions.  Let’s take a stroll back in time shall we?

Remember when there were shows on TV that actually still taught MORALS?

Back then we had The Walton’s, Little House on the Prairie, and Leave it to Beaver where bad was bad, and good was good.

Today we have reality TV, shows with sex, drugs, violence, vampires, demons, zombies, even one portraying and glorifying Satan himself.  Today evil is good and being respectful, having class, and having morals is bad.
****
Back in the day, movies showed married couples sleeping in separate beds, and the most sexual thing that was shown in most movies was a long extended kiss on the lips.  They talked about faith and extended faith in movies because most people had it.

Today the movies blaspheme God, show a gratuitous sex scene in just about every movie, we have fictitious super heroes and people practicing sorcery and satanism that have become children’s role models.   Violence, drugs, alcohol abuse and more are commonplace.  What would have been considered pornography back then is considered the norm today.
****
Back in the day, most families wore their “Sunday best” to church on Sunday mornings.  There were no cafe’s in churches, or book stores or coffee shops like today.  Today, people sometimes will wear their pajamas to church.
****
Back in the day, people sang in church, usually many hymns from a hymnal.  Today people get entertained by a full fledged band with electric guitars, drums and more.
****
Back in the day, atheists didn’t try to shut down every Christian themed public display.  Today they will take you to court to have your nativity scene permanently hidden.
****
Back in the day, we didn’t have to worry about terrorism in this nation, yet today, terrorists are our neighbors, waiting for their shining moment.
****
Back in the day, kids could share their faith with others and not be silenced through intimidation.  Today, you can’t even wear a shirt of faith in school, or pray over their lunch.
****
Back in the day, we were patriots, united, happy and proud to be in this nation.  Today people shun the American flag, patriotism, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, our founding fathers, and we have never been more divided as a country.
****
Back in the day, we didn’t hear about school and mass shootings.  Today they are happening more and more.
****
Back in the day, we didn’t have to worry about teachers telling our kids about Islam, while shunning Judaism and Christianity.  Today they are teaching the kids the Islamic prayers and the pillars of Islam while firing teachers who display any sort of Christianity in front of students.
****
Back in the day, we all treated each other with decency and respect.  Today, we sneer at each other and bite each other in the back.
****
Back in the day, we helped others.  Today most people are more concerned about a good YouTube video than helping a victim.
****
Back in the day, we had decent healthcare.  Today, many of the middle class have no insurance, and can’t even have their diseases treated because they all have become too un-affordable.
****
Back in the day, we were a sovereign nation, and a nation of (far less) laws.  Today laws are viewed as worthless, bendable, breakable and only worthy if they fit a socialist point of view.
****
Back in the day, a Christian didn’t have to worry about serving gays in their business, let alone getting sued by them and losing the case.
****
Back in the day, weekly groceries cost under 100.00 per week.  Today, they approach 200.00 or more for families.  A steak used to cost 5.00, today it’s 30.00.
****
Back in the day, we respected our police officers.  Today, they are kicked in the guts by the ungrateful.

Back in the day……..oh how I long for back in the day.  How I long for the day of leaders instead of dividers.

Do you feel safer today?  Do you feel more secure in this nation today?  Do you feel more prosperous today?  Do you feel more loved today by your family and neighbor?  Do you feel happier today?

I suppose if you’re a socialist, a Muslim, a homosexual, a young person who never experienced the “back in the day” – or you’re just plain ignorant to the radical changes that have taken place in this country over the past 20 years, you would answer yes to the above questions.  The rest of us however, those of us who know, we see the progress alright….backwards progress.  Progress towards a Utopian idea that has never succeeded before and won’t succeed now.

Chaos is always created by those in power, just so they can create a so called “fix” – and gradually take more and more of our freedoms away.

This isn’t progress people….it’s regress.  The last hope of the world’s light is growing dim and because we have turned our backs on God, He has in turn done the same to us.

My life hasn’t gotten better other than knowing Christ over the past 20 years.  How has yours gotten better?

Fallible man…..we screw it up every time but yet call it “progress”.  Sooo blind.

Father, forgive them, they know not what they do….Amen.

    Ms. Brandy,

    AMEN!

    Great article! Happy New Year!

    Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to respond to your article today entitled ” REMEMBER WHEN. ”

    To better understand the condition of our society today is to read the words of Paul contained in the book of Ephesians. Paul writes:
    ” Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:10-12

    The seat of Satan is located in Washington, DC. This Nation belongs to lucifer, the devil, that old serpent ” Satan.” How else can we explain the rulings coming out of Washington, DC. Pure unadulterated EVIL!

    Just look @ the response Mr. Donald Trump is garnering right now, & rightfully so. The people are fed up with “ALL” of the corruption that currently exist in both the Democratic & Republican parties(Snakes & Vipers). For this reason, people are hoping that Mr. Trump can heal all of the Nations problems. I personally like Mr. Trump & hope that he can help to repair the breach, that is broken. But the only way any of this can be fixed is to read the words of 2 Chronicles 7:14. America’s answer can only be found there in the scriptures. Absent of repenting, America will only continued to slide into the cesspool of filth.

    We already know what’s to come. For the answer, regarding America, is found in the words of Revelation 18: 1-24. (KJV) According to the scriptures, that great city, Babylon, will be destroyed in 1 hour. There are 3 major earthquake fault lines in America.

    People are afraid, afraid to stand up for anything until it effects them personally, then they want everyone to know. Greedy, lazy, self – centered, lacking any knowledge of Truth. It’s not a pretty picture of our once great country. America is no longer “that shining city set upon a hill. ” I personally believe American is gone, as a country.

    As Mr. Morgan Freeman stated in the Shawshank redemption movie – ” we need to get busy living or we need to get busy dying. ”
    America, I’m afraid, is busy dying.

    Listen to this song by Rachel Platten – ” Fight Song ” to get a perspective of the world’s passion in standing up for what they believe. Over 120 million hits on youtube! Meanwhile, all of the so called christians are sitting on the sidelines, afraid to engage in the fight, because of fear.

    Again, I thank you Ms. Brandy for giving me this opportunity to respond to your article. Hopefully, peoples hearts will start to open to the words of Truth spoken by our Lord & Saviour Jesus the Christ of Nazereth.

    My Prayer
    ” Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus the Christ of Nazereth: may the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the prince of peace: may the Lord bless thee, and keep thee: may the Lord make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: may the Lord lift up his Countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. ” -Amen

    Sincerely,
    4TRUTH,
    Buddy Dawson
    Thank you
