Has God Abandoned America?
The president and the Democratic Party won yesterday’s [Nov. 6, 2012] election by more than 2.5 MILLION [popular] votes.
Here’s what had to be ignored:
23 MILLION unemployed or Underemployed
14 MILLION added to the National Welfare Role
One out of EVERY Six Americans now living below the “Poverty Line”
5.5 MILLION Homes STILL on the verge of foreclosure
A $4,500.00 drop in Household Income
$5.5 TRILLION IN NEW debt [and more planed and PROMISED!]
$716 Billion dollars cut from Medicare and given to Obomacare.
$1.9 TRILLION in NEW TAXES already in Oboma’s Budget
100% [+] increase in Gas Prices
Gutting our Military
Continued restrictions on America Energy reserves; more dependence on the Middle East
PLUS avid support for:
Abortion; even partial-birth murder at ANY stage of pregnancy
Usurpation by the Oboma Government of what were [are] Constituently granted “FREEDOM of Religious practice” rights, … Rights given in the First Amendment
Two men or two women can legally get “married,” with full “married” benefits
And no articulated plan to change any of it. Indeed; we ought to expect it to get far worse, based on his previous term in Office.
It is now indisputable that America is no longer a Christian [or Catholic] Nation. This IS a certifiable FACT! So the answer to the title question is NO! God has NOT abandoned America; AMERICA HAS ABANDONED GOD! ALL of This
is what has been set aside for “Meism” and self-indulgent interest. Every Democrat vote was [is] a Mortal sin.
Matthew 22:36-40 “
Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.”
Matthew 7:13 “Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. .. Luke 13:24 “Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able.
Matthew 7:14 “How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!”
This then leads to another question. WHY?
It is my opinion that asking “WHY” at this juncture is the wrong thing for us to be doing at this time of crisis. …. “What is: …IS!”
Far more relevant to the “new-minority“ Catholic and Christian Community is to discern:
WHY ME; WHY NOW; WHY HERE?
God remains in charge so we can know our existence in this present time and in our circumstances was pre-ordained by God for some precise and desired by God, reason.
Because Jesus choose to suffer; all of us ought to expect to have to do the same.
Take for yourselves the examples of Mary, His Mother, and ALL of the Martyred Apostles and the many who followed them in the Early Catholic Church in like manner.
Suffering for Christ ought to be expected by each of us.
Ecclesiasticus 51:31 “Draw near to me, ye unlearned, and gather yourselves together into the house of discipline” … Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, (as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but much more now in my absence,) with fear and trembling work out your salvation.”
“Take Up your Cross and Follow Me”
Phil.2: 8 “And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross Luke.9 :23 And he said to all, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Mark.8: 34 And he called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Luke.9: 23 And he said to all, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Luke.14: 7 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple.”
1Pet.4: 13 ” But rejoice in so far as you share Christ’ssufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. … 1Pet.5: 1, 9 “So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ as well as a partaker in the glory that is to be revealed. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world.” … Phil.1: 29 “For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but alsosuffer for his sake, “
2Thes.1: 5 “This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be made worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you aresuffering “
I fully expect further attacks on our religious liberties, because God and Christianity in ALL forms are their nemesis; their cross, their identified enemy! I have no idea of what form these will be; but have no doubt that they are heading our way. We can expect HUGE changes in the network of Catholic Charity and Social Services. Our Bishops cannot allow “Catholic” Hospitals, Nursing care facilities, or Social Services, Food Banks and Shelters for the Poor and Homeless to fund abortions and contraceptives. To do so would be Gravely Immoral.
First: We MUST support in every possible manner; our Bishops actions and changes wrought by “Obomacare” mandates that cannot be permitted to alter our Christian Morality, our Truth, and God‘s LAWS; No matter the personal cost to us.
The Second Godly expectation deals with our personal charity. We MUST be even more giving; more willing to share what God has permitted us to have with our “neighbor”; and remember “our neighbor” include EVRYONE in need.
The Third and final expectation by God for EACH of us is to:
1. Know well our Faith. What we believe and Why we can believe it. Towards this end, I suggest that you may wish to change the frequency of your BBL Lessons being mailed to you? If so, just let me know. There now exist a FAR greater sense of urgency.
2. Live that Faith Fully and Publicly; which will no doubt become more of a challenge as time progresses and these heathens become more willing to impose their personal beliefs on ALL of us in the Public Forum.
3. Then we MUST share this information at every opportunity, and aggressively SPREAD God’s Truth. Be aggressive, charitable and factual. Seek opportunities; as we no longer have the luxury of waiting for them to appear to us.
God has placed us; you and me here at this time, and in these circumstances for the possibility of our own salvation. Like the option to choose good over evil; this looms as a test of our Fortitude and Love of and For Our God. This is thee answer to: Why Me, Why Now; Why Here. AMEN!
We are living in a Godless; God despised, God denied society, where only “ME” comes first.
What we must do will only be possible IF we make the necessary effort to stay close to God, through increase prayer, sacrifices, the Mass and the Sacraments; most especially the Eucharist and Confession, so that God WILL stay close to us.
Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you and your efforts. Each of you remain in my daily prayers,
May God strengthen all of us and provide ALL of the Spiritual gifts we need to meet this challenge.
