Faith, relationships, and patriotism are in such a rapid decline in the United States that it is nearly impossible to keep up. Once the national motto was “God, Family, Country.” That trilogy has morphed into, “I, Me, Mine.”
Redefining God, Family, Country
God used to be a universal concept. One could safely assume that a reference to God was to the God of the Bible. Today’s god is the individual, the idolization of humans, and the worship of the created, not the Creator.
Family used to mean Mom, Dad, and their biological or adopted children. The further back you go the more extensive the definition of family. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins all fell within the scope of the ‘family.’ A family today is defined by each little god since each one is free to define what ‘family’ means for them regardless of legal or genetic ties. Many marriage licenses are replacing the identifiers Bride and Groom with Person A and Person B.
America in Decline
As the emphasis changes from God to god, and traditional family to ‘roommates of the moment’ there is a similar transition in the concept of ‘country.’ Soldiers and elected officials used to pledge themselves to protect and defend the Constitution. Our President and at least one of our Supreme Court Justices believe the Constitution is a hindrance rather than a foundation.
Now ‘country’ has no secure border, no unification in the definition of citizen, and is losing what little unity remains as the three branches of government operate like they do at Burger King, “Have it your way.”
“I, Me, Mine” – A powerless trinity
The Trinity of God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit is unchanged. Regardless of what any little god chooses to believe, the truth that was is the truth that remains. The emphasis and worship of “I, Me, and Mine” has no power except to separate each little god from the God of the Bible, the only God.
The only name with power is the name of Jesus Christ, not the label of “christian.” That same Power is returning soon. The King is coming and the time is near.
Persevere to the end and escape the tribulation that will come to all the little gods of this world.
But concerning the time and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-2
