...I can't help but wonder if the leadership we now have in place in this nation is part of God's reminder that what we, as people, live for, we get? Many times in the OT, God sent evil Kings to lead the nation of Israel, and it sure seems that Obama is a spiritual reminder to the church that if we don't move from our seats to our knees, we can expect more of what we have today? Do you think that God could be sending a strong warning to the people across this nation that greatness [employment, productivity, wealth, etc.] only comes to the faithful? With the growing move to be tolerant and politically correct, is America and our society/culture reaping what we've sown? I tend to believe we are standing near the brink of some real spiritual chastisement, and a Godly whooping! What do you think about the spiritual climate in this nation???
