Some time back, in an article called The WHY of the Christian States of America, I explained the reason why we- our country, that is- needed...

“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh” (Matt. 25:13).
A lot of Christians have the idea that prophecy is like a treasure hunt: If you figure out the magic date, you’ll know when to expect the final day. In reality, prophecy is more like a dance marathon: As there are fewer people on the floor, the closer we are to the end. With apathy having become so rampant, we have a clear signal that the music is about to stop.
In the book of Matthew, Jesus told His disciples again and again that the hour of His return would be highlighted by a lack of awareness on the part of His followers. The Lord was so insistent about getting this point across, He repeated himself four times in the space of a few verses. He also included a story about the 10 virgins to illustrate the point of the surprise Rapture. We are the think not generation.
So, to now ask where is the outrage--either from embarrassment or from righteous anger--is likely far too late as the end approaches. When men kiss and do whatsoever they please in public, as gay pride brings society and culture to the point of being like it was in Sodom and Gomorrah--the day of prophetic fulfillment is upon us. Where is the rage against those of Planned Parenthood who flippantly speak of killing babies and selling their body parts--against those who are supposed to be trained to save lives but murder the innocent? Where is the resistance to those in government and in the pulpits who condone the sacrifice of children upon the altars of abortion--who are plunging America into the same abyss that the ancients went, burning infants in the red-hot hands of the idol Moloch?
Not only has America forgotten how to blush, it is a nation that has forgotten the God of Heaven who gave mankind the good sensibility to know when and when not to blush. Jeremiah the prophet, again, has something to present about God's reaction to such complete rejection by any people: "I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them" (Jeremiah 8:13).
The only hope for America--and for the world for that matter--is for God's people to follow His spiritual prescription for healing this land.
