Warning to "Christian" Nations
In a single generation, Israel had slipped into apostasy (idol worship).
Today (Mar 31, 2013) in America we see this same thing playing out now. There is a huge cultural shift going on that rivals what happened in 1960's. Biblical values, once held in high regard, are considered by more and more people to be hateful, backward, ignorant and even dangerous to the nation.
Although sexual immorality has always occurred, previously at least the people agreed that it shouldn't be done. Now sexual mores have been removed. It's not only OK but expected that we should violate God's commands regarding sex. I know someone who had sex at age 21 not because they were in love but because this person worried there was something wrong with them. Currently same-sex marriage is permitted in 10 states and may be permitted in the entire nation, depending on how the Supreme Court rules. 48% of American children are born to unwed parents where previously this was frowned upon.
Although we don't worship idols of wood or metal, we worship work, prestige, money, being the center of attention, etc. Instead we ought to be worshipping the One who created us and sustains our lives. But in our society, that kind of thinking is at the same level as the Flat Earth Society.
Read the last verse (15) and heed God's warning: Whenever they marched out, the hand of the Lord was against them for harm, as the Lord had warned, and as the Lord had sworn to them. And they were in terrible distress.
Fortunately we still have Jesus Christ to pull this nation from its current path. Pray that the Lord will send a revival to America!
