Years ago, Ronald Reagan said, “If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” We are watching America fall apart at the seams because the nation’s people have foolishly and arrogantly rejected the one true God/Jesus Christ/Holy Spirit. God proclaims what happens to a society that forgets God. The bottom line: The society literally becomes hell on earth. “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased/reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32 (NKJV) Nuggets of Truth: How does a society become hell on earth? The people overall resist the truth by living a selfish and corrupt life with sin being justifiable and acceptable to them. Reread the Biblical reference again and note: People who are living likewise do the same ungodly things and also approve of the godless actions of others! Wow, the people do the same ungodly things and approve of godless actions! Beloved, do you knowingly do ungodly things and approve of the godless actions in other people? Good news: “‘Return to me, and I will return to you,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Malachi 3:7b (NIV) God’s invitation is open to individuals and a nation … but it is not open forever. “Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55:6 (NIV) Salvation’s countdown is ticking down to zero time left to accept Jesus Christ! Only God knows the time. . “Who will rise up for me against the wicked?” Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?” Psalm 94:16 (NIV) Beloved, daily choose to rise/stand-up against evil through God’s grace! Take a Stand!
