I set before you today life and blessing, death and cursing. Choose life that you and you children may live in the land and prosper.
On Nov. 6, 2012, America chose death and cursing. Of course, death called itself “Choice” and cursing was named “Planned Parenthood,” but there was no effort at disguise. The Democratic party openly proclaimed itself the party of abortion and the defender of Planned Parenthood. The Democrats no longer tried to dissemble and pretend that they were just tolerating an evil; they embraced it. They ran ads which proclaimed their commitment to abortion and the funding of Planned Parenthood. They stood foursquare against religious liberty and traditional marriage and for sexual sin.
And the American people voted them back into office. Before we could have argued that abortion was forced upon us by the Supreme Court, but we didn’t choose it. Now we must accept the fact that we live in a pagan country — a country that has freely chosen death and cursing — and we must act accordingly.
We can pray for God to have mercy on our country, but we can no longer expect God to bless America, not when we have thrown his gifts in his face and ridiculed his prophets. We must recognize that we live in a toxic culture, one that is alien to virtue and the promoter of vice. We must protect ourselves and our families by strengthening our own institutions. We must create an alternative culture one which will resist the culture of death.
Christianity began as a persecuted religion, and if it is God’s will that it become that again, so be it. The early Christians won by refusing to compromise, no matter the cost and we can follow their example. This is a time for saints. May God give us the strength to face whatever comes.
