Will Silent Majority Remain Silent?
This is a question resonating throughout and within the Evangelical Christian community. Is it possible, they ask, that God is sitting on the sidelines as a result of America’s practice of complacency, apathy and immorality? One thing is for certain, America is starting to resemble the great civilizations past that fell not as a result of war but from rotting within because they elected to eat, drink and be merry and rebel against God.
Without exception, every time man has been disobedient to the Almighty, the outcome has been catastrophic. History clearly documents the aftermath of disobedience and to see this one only has to look at the great Roman and Babylonian Empires to confirm the penalty of opposition to God. What the Creator told Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Hosea, the great prophets of the Torah and Old Testament, is just as valid today as yesterday. If God punished the Apple of His eye, the Jews, for their disobedience, surely every people and nation refusing His instructions can expect nothing less than His wrath.
Today America stands at the threshold of decisions balancing on a thin plank in a turbulent storm. Will America choose to continue playing the fiddle while the house is burning down or will she alter her course and return to the principles upon which she was founded? Will she continue to accept and even embrace practices and behaviors contrary to the Holy Word of God? The acceptance of same sex marriages, removing God’s Ten Commandments from her courts and prayer from her school classrooms, rampant disrespect for law and order, drug abuse, child abuse, fiscal irresponsibility, corruption in government and corporate greediness all serve to paint a clear picture of self destruction.
Will America be expedient in addressing these violations to God’s Word? Will the silent majority, if they still exist, speak out? If not then we must be willing to accept the wrath of a just God. Every nation in the world which values democracy and freedom keeps their eyes on America. Will the super power of the world become another victim of God’s judgment and wrath or will America wake up before the last die is cast. We cannot ponder our decision for long.
