Who Will Save America?

Will The Political Parties Save America?

In an election year, many people get caught up in the political rhetoric that is splashed all across the media.

In this article I hope to be a voice of reason in the midst of all that rhetoric.

You see, both political parties want to motivate their constituents to come out and vote and in doing so will say and do almost anything to accomplish that goal.

They have one objective and that is to win at all costs.

Because of that, they have, are, and will lead people to believe that if they are elected that they will “save America” from whatever ills their constituents believe are troubling this nation.

However, is this really true?

Will the political parties and their candidates save America?

What Does God Say About Saving America?

Is there anything in the Bible that talks about having the right political party in office will save a nation?

The answer is no.

The Bible is very clear about what types of things will make a nation great, bring on the blessings of God, and what things will bring a nation to shame, and bring about it’s destruction and nowhere is there the notion that it is done by which political party is in power.

What it says is that the actions and behavior of it’s people will cause it to either prosper or self-destruct.

The idea that if we vote for the right political party will bring the blessings of God is a construct of those same political parties trying to manipulate their faith voters.

They are trying to say to us that if we vote for them we are voting for “God’s side”.

That whole premise is false.

God does not have a side. You are either for Him or against Him. He does not have a favorite team.

It is plain out hubris to think that God endorses a political party.

Both political parties are really not interested in doing what God wants, they just want power. They just clothe themselves in trappings of whatever type of spirituality their constituents want to see.

Because of this, I am encouraging you to take a step back from all the rhetoric and all the promises being made by either political party and ask yourself one question.

Who will really save America?

Who will bring us back to the God of our forefathers?

Who will make the deep changes that we need made in our country?

Is it really up to politicians whether this country sinks or floats?

Is Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton the person who will lead us into a new age of liberalism?

Is Ted Cruz or Donald Trump the savior of traditional America?

That answer my friends depends on who you look to for leadership.

You see, if you believe either of those statements, or even if you believe both of them and you love one and despise the other, the fact remains, nobody is forcing you to follow them.

We have bought into a lie that says we must do what they tell us to do.

That is horsepucky!

As believers in Jesus we answer to one master and pay the consequences of that choice in this current world.

Democrats are not making you marry someone of the opposite sex. If you do that, you make that choice and that choice has spiritual and physical consequences.

Democrats are not forcing you to murder your unborn child. If you make that choice, it is you that will be held responsible and it will have spiritual, emotional, and physical consequences.

Republicans are not forcing you to ignore the poor. If you see your fellow American in need, it is your responsibility to help them. If you choose not to, you also will have the consequences to pay for your hard heart.

Republicans are not going to make the rich richer. You are. You are the ones that are spending the money. If you don’t want the rich to be richer stop buying their products and services and spend it locally in your community. Give opportunity for average people to do business with you.

The way to deal with the ills of America is to stop looking to politicians to be our saviors.

We all, in some way, shape, or form have fallen for the lie that government is the solution to our problems.

It is not the solution, it is part of the problem.

What Does The Bible Say About The Fate Of A Nation?

The Bible is very clear about the fate of a nation. If it is on His side, then it will prosper, if it is not, then it will not.

Psalm 33:12

New King James Version (NKJV)

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,

The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

Now there will be many of you that read that and say well most Americans are Christians so we should be blessed.

It is not our label that matters but our heart.

The term “Lord” means ruler, master, and sovereign.

I am going to ask you a very hard question.

If God is our ruler individually, then why is there a need to repeal Roe vs. Wade?

If there were not over 1 million adult women a day making the choice to murder their babies, would there be a need to repeal the law?

Would it not be one of those stupid laws on the books like the ones that make it illegal to tie your horse to the rail on Main Street?

You see, politicians have promised us for the 30 years I have been a voter that Roe vs. Wade would be repealed if we voted for them and they failed to keep their promises.

The fate of our nation does not depend on the political parties, it depends on who our Lord is. The problem cannot be solved politically. It must be solved through us.

The problems facing America are in fact spiritual in nature.

If Americans were allowing God to be their Lord, then these issues would be moot.

Abortion would not be an issue.

Gay marriage would not be an issue.

The poor would not be an issue.

Opportunity for the average person to make a living would not be an issue.

The problems that face America are going to take American citizens making a choice, not politicians enforcing a policy.

Proverbs 14:34

King James Version (NKJV)

34 Righteousness exalts a nation,

But sin is a reproach to any people.

You need to understand, that our nation is not our government. Our nation is the people who live within it’s borders.

If we are to be a nation that is exalted, then we need to be a righteous people. It has nothing to do with government.

Government will reflect who we are. We have the government we have because of the lack of righteousness we have become. What we see in the political discourse today is a reflection of the discourse we have in our nation.

I ask you this. If George Washington had endorsed gay marriage, what would have happened to him? He would have been tarred and feathered by the nation.

If Abe Lincoln had endorsed murdering babies what would have happened to honest Abe? He would never have been elected as a dog catcher!

You see, politicians are held accountable by the people.

The reason America is in the shape it is in today is because it’s people have backslidden. Their God is their pocketbook and their belly.

They no longer are the people that was described by Alexis de Toqueville

“America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

How To Save America?

It comes right down to this.

Every American must take responsibility for their actions. They must start realizing and responding to the fact that they are not doing what they are supposed to be doing.

When is the last time you took responsibility for the spiritual training of your children?

When is the last time you learned enough about your Bible to be able to pass that along to another generation?

When is the last time you prayed for your family, co-workers, or even a stranger on the street?

When is the last time you shared the gospel message to someone else?

When is the last time you were asked to engage in something that was not a godly behavior and you politely said no?

When was the last time you told your local political party you vote cannot be bought anymore?

When is the last time you made a decision that would cost your financially because serving God was more important to you?

When is the last time you chose to attend your local church instead of sleeping in, going to the beach, mountains, or the drag races?

Joshua 24:14-16

New King James Version (NKJV)

14 “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

16 So the people answered and said: “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods;

Who Will Save America?

There is only 1 answer. Jesus will save America if American citizens will turn back to Him.

2 Chronicles 7:14

New King James Version (NKJV)/p>

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

The Republican party will not save America.

The Democratic party will not save America.

If America is to be saved, it will be saved because her people once again make God their “Lord”
