Dr. Couch, I agree with you as to what is happening today in our world. It is indeed growing more evil and deceitful. Can you give some additional verses of Scripture?
ANSWER: Isaiah 26:10 is a great verse of Scripture. God
"shows favor to the wicked" but His grace and patience rarely changes
things. The wicked "does not learn righteousness. He deals unjustly in
the land of uprightness." In other words, he destroys what is good. That
is what is happening in America, though the righteous cannot simply
blame the evil person. We are responsible for our lethargy and our own
sins of omission and commission! There are national corporate sins and
individual sins. And there are cultural sins. By importing in a
wholesale manner other cultures into America, we are weakening our
Reformed, European heritage. But again, we are not innocent. We have
allowed what is now going on. All individuals are equal before God, but
not all cultures are equal.
I should know. I have been in
every Central American country and most of Europe, the Middle East, and
North Africa. All nations and cultures are not the same!
believer in Christ, and many, many people who are not Christians, all
see the same things happening. And they are agreeing that we now have a
nation divided between those who are conservative and want to hold on to
strong principles, and those who are leaning to socialism. One European
who came to the States recently said, "I'm from Europe and America has
now moved into European socialism."
Isaiah 26:10 closes with:
"The wicked does not perceive the majesty of the Lord." He just does not
get it! The wicked does not understand God and will destroy the nation
in which he resides, and that is attempting to honor Him!
Psalm 7:11 points out that God is a righteous Judge, "and a God who has
indignation every day" against evil. But His grace is held back for a
time. And then His wrath falls upon that evil nation. Even though we are
in the dispensation of grace, God still brings judgment upon the world.
This is why there are wars and judgments that fall upon the evil
countries of the world. It is now building up on America. We are
starting to get ours! It will finally tumble in upon us in a rush. It
has already begun! One can hear the rumbling as we get closer to the
Thanks for asking.
