This was so thought provoking and is a must read for us during these times.

This is so good!
Ehart just wrote it and put it on Twitter. I hope they don’t remove it..
So much truths it!
Something has bothered me for years and this past year especially but no one wants to talk about it much less preach about it.
We have had massive fires in the western and southern United States. Last summer saw a record number of hurricanes in the Atlantic. And now we have record number of counties with record cold.
Has anyone bothered to ask God why? I see christians asking for protection and relief but have any of us asked why? Why is the west burning? Why are hurricanes making landfall over and over? Why are tornadoes sweeping through our towns? Why are we so cold the power grid can’t keep up?
Some will say it’s man-made global climate change. Some will say it’s poor planning. Some will say it’s just one of those things. And all of those may have a factor in it.
But I’m going to suggest there’s more to it. I’m going to suggest this is because of the sin of this nation.
Like ancient Israel we founded this country on God. The pilgrims came here for religious freedom and landed at the one site where no native tribe lived. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution make mention of the Creator. We were founded on biblical principles and laws.
And in my lifetime, we have left those principles and made new laws. They passed their children through the fires. We abort ours. They worshipped idols. We worship money, houses, cars, careers, vacations, etc.
We have no respect for the unborn, or the elderly and no equality of justice. Especially this past year, our elderly are locked away and in some places abandoned as though left on an ice flow for the polar bears. And no one cares. And worse yet, those responsible justify their actions. Businesses are shut down but abortion clinics are open. And justice depends on how much you can pay for a lawyer or how sympathetic your cause.
When are Christians going to own this?
God is speaking but instead of repentance, we just ask for healing.
This is our fault, America! Jesus loves us but we have to do our part. We have to stand up for our neighbors and take care of them. It starts in the heart. And it starts next door.
God’s not healing or protecting anything until we humble ourselves and pray and preachers start preaching the true Word and not a social gospel. Stop condemning your neighbor for his lifestyle show him the Jesus of the Bible. The one who wouldn’t condemn but admonished “leave your life of sin before something worse happens.”
Repentance and healing start in the heart and on our faces before God.
