The latest liberal meme claims that since God has not judged the United States for the way our nation has treated Native Americans, kidnapped men and women from Africa and turned them into slaves, and for the way we treat the poor, why should we believe that God is going to judge our nation because of abortion and same-sex marriage?
It’s obvious that these numbskulls don’t get it. God’s judgments don’t often come as fireballs from the heavens.
Abortion and homosexuality are the judgments. God has been judging us by letting us kill off our future with abortion and promoting homosexuality which counters the biblical command to be “fruitful and multiply” (Gen. 1:22).
They are self-maledictions – self-curses (Deut. 27:15-26; Job 31). Who in their right mind would kill-off their future or glorify sexual relationships that bear no children or award people who self-mutilate themselves in an attempt to be what they are not?
The Bible makes it clear that children are a blessing. The purposeful killing of children is a self-curse.
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate (Ps. 127:3-5).
There is no “fruit” if you pick the fruit before it has time to ripen (abortion), and there is no “fruit” if you plant your seed in toxic soil (homosexuality) or constantly spill it on the sheets.
The practice and acceptance of homosexuality are evidence of the end-point of a culture (Rom. 1:24-27).
Let’s not forget the 600,000 dead in the Civil War and the long-term consequences that slavery has brought to the United States, some of which we are still having to deal with. These are consequential judgments.
God has also judged us with our choice of a socialistic economic system that is creating more poor people and an ever-increasing debt and deficit.
Do not be among those who give pledges,
Among those who become guarantors for debts (Prov. 22:26).
God’s judgment is all around us in the choices we have made and codified into law and by raising a high hand to God in defiance to His will.
