America – the new Rome

It pains me greatly to see how far America has strayed from biblical morality. The popular culture is no longer Christian. One has to only tune in to the TV talk shows to see how they mock and ridicule and attack Christian faith at every turn. The seeds of this Antichrist culture were in the seminaries and universities of America approximately 55 years ago.

After the so-called sexual revolution of the 1960s, came the homosexual movement which is now known as LGBT. While pastors were no longer being trained to preach the whole undiluted Word of God, this soon spread to their churches, and from the churches to individual families.

In 1973 with the Supreme Court decision of Roe v Wade the so-called right and freedom to have abortion on demand became enshrined into law. Like Rome, America is now just about as thoroughly full of sexual immorality as you can get. The statistics are shocking, 7-10% of Americans now identify as LGBT, a full 95-98% of Americans are no longer virgins before they are married for the first time, millions of couples now live together, in unrepentant sin, satisfying the lusts of the flesh.

LGBT couples adopt children, raising them to believe that homosexuality and transgenderism are not a sin. The vast majority of those who espouse Christ in America are fornicating and committing adultery at virtually the same rates as those who don’t espouse faith in Christ! God will not be mocked.

It is now considered a great shame if a man or woman is in their early 20s and is still a virgin. Movies are made mocking virgins, popular comedians ridicule virgins as being abnormal freaks.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Isaiah 5:20

We’ve seen this Scripture play out in America. The social values are now inverted. What was universally condemned as bad for 2,000 years is now seen as good, and what was upheld as good is now seen by the majority of Americans as bad. Just look at the polling which shows that the vast majority of “Christians” in America see LGBT as good and proper, and see sex before marriage as normal and healthy.

Satan launched an all-out assault on America in the past 50-60 years. With each new generation, there’s more tolerance for sin, and wickedness becomes enshrined in law. We, the Church, must shoulder the majority of the blame. If our parents and grandparents had lived holy lives, raised their children to fear and love the Lord, refused to compromise in our biblical convictions, maintained orthodoxy in our seminaries, boldly preached the full Word of God in our churches, tenaciously fought any laws which enshrined wickedness, we’d have a very different society.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

I believe it’s not too late for America to repent and turn back to Christ. But time is quickly running out. Over 63 million babies have been murdered through abortion since 1973, homosexual “marriage” is enshrined into law, sexual immorality is pervasive, pornography on demand is pervasive, and many Christians are addicted to it, profanity is widespread even among those professing Christ, all sorts of lies and deceit is commonplace in schools and businesses, Christ and biblical theology is mocked and ridiculed in social media, entertainment industry, books, etc.

My parents raised my 2 sisters and me to fear and love the Lord. We are all in our mid-40s and are all virgins. I don’t take any credit for that. I was faced with temptation many times, but God always provided a way out. It’s all His grace! Glory to God. I feel parents need to teach biblical purity and instill sexually moral values at a young age. We also need pastors to preach forcefully against the sins of fornication, adultery. Sadly, many pastors are worried if they preach that the majority of the teens and 20 and 30 somethings in their church are guilty of fornication or adultery that they would lose their financial contributions! We must stand boldly on the full Word of God, no matter what the cost!

Here is a very edifying and convicting sermon by evangelist Paul Washer on the lusts of the flesh.

By the way, here is a paper that makes a compelling case that America is Babylon the Great of the book of Revelation. This is the key nation to be used to support the Beast system of the coming Antichrist. I’m not sold on the idea, yet though, but it’s good to think about.

  1. This is very well thought out and I have to agree with everything you said. i will have to revisit the Paul Washer sermon because a lack of time but i enjoy your writing and this article. I have had similar thoughts about this and very much see Rome in our country right now. We may not change America back to what “we thought she was” but we can repent of our sin and keep our eyes on the world to come! Thanks, Zach
