America is the greatest nation in the world and no one doubts that, but the Christianity in America is in its vegetative state and that is what I intend to call your attention to today. The Christians must be real. I am a prophet and not a politician and a prophet’s duties are to foretell and forthtell the conditions of a continent, a society, country and not to molly cuddle it to perdition. If the prophet does not point out the ills of a nation who will and who should? Does rebuking or correcting a nation mean debasing its status? Where do we keep this scripture: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim 3:16-17).Perhaps you need to be aware that in the 20s to the 80s the name US was a household name and epitome of greatnesses. Perhaps you should know that in the days of Bill Clinton the world looked at the US with shock and awe but now it is merely derision to mention the name US among other countries. If the US is only great in the eyes of Americans then that greatness is arguable and may be xenophobia rather than greatness for every xenophobe considers his or her country great. You and I know that some countries are not worth being called countries for they are more or less living hells. In the earlier years of the 21st Century, the US was held in high esteem for its spirituality and in the days of Clinton for its economy. But now it is spiritually kaput and economically on life support. By implication something has been lost and must be regained. Like Samson in great delusion we awake from our sleep and say: “we will go out as at other times before, and shake ourselves”. But we do not know that the LORD has departed from us as a nation. Wake up Christians of America. I say wake up!
Do you see how difficult it is to convince some Americans that we may be heading for a recession? Many had faith in Enron and WorldCom until their demise and it would seem we will prefer to see everyone a pagan in the US before we realize that Christianity has lost grounds and is ceding way to Islam and New Age. Before the advent of New Age, Islam was the fasted growing religion in the US. The Dark Skinned Americans were the new converts of Islam because of what they see in racism because when a people have suffered for too long they will drink with insatiable gullibility fairytales on fairylands
The conclusion of the matter is that American Christianity is not good enough for foreign exportation and consumption. It should be left back in the US because any Christianity that does not preach love your neighbor as yourself is just not good enough. And as you know, racism and prejudice are not good examples of loving one's neighbor.
Look the Christians are busy pretending all is well and people like Oprah are taking the New Age Religion into their homes (http://youtube.com/watch?v=JW4LLwkgmqA). Oprah says that there are many ways to God and now peddles humanistic theology through your women into your homes in the name of the Oprah Winfrey Show. Another one is Ellen DeGeneres. America is degenerating into a heathen nation through a simple method of Hunting by Mother Proxy.
When I was a kid we reared some goats and sheep. When it was time to mark them we will first catch the mother and the kids will come hovering around their mother. One by one we will catch them all and mark them then finally the hegoat will come to liberate his wife and he too will be caught. By the time Oprah and Ellen are done with our women, our kids and men will follow. Though the man pretends to be the head of the house the woman serves as the neck that turns it to where it wants to see.
Greatness is relative anyway. There are countries in the world whose subjects and citizens do not desire going out of their country talk less of coming to America. It is a shame that we always take criticisms about the spiritual decadence of the US to mean a general rebuke of the entire country. While other religions are doing all it takes to permeate their fallacies the Christians are busy sleeping on their laurels. Christianity in America is no more what it used to be that does not mean America is not a great country. Christians like to make it look like each time someone criticizes the spiritual degradation it means they mean the country America is not good.
Christians must refrain from this type of behavior. We are hurting and hindering the call for a change of lifestyle that can trigger revival that could lead to real Christianity. A Christianity that truly preaches: “love your neighbor as yourself”. When we will acknowledge that every human being was born free and equal and should be treated equally and left freely.
This is not an attempt to be a moral compass and as always: Africans have enough immorality of theirs to stay back home and preach in their countries and United States citizens have a lot of putrefaction to stay back in their country than take vacations to other countries that they want to preach. If you find yourself anywhere then preach the gospel but it is preposterous for an African to say they are coming to America to preach the gospel. There are many sinners in Africa that by the time they are done the Lord must have called every preacher to heaven. The same thing goes with the US, Europe and other continents.
Unconsciously, tacitly and acquiescently this country is selling her progeny to a doctrine that challenges the Deity of Christ and the main tenet of the Christendom that unequivocally states: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (I Tim 2:5-6). Jesus himself affirmed it by saying: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (Jn 14:6).
Until then I urge Christians worldwide to pray for America and for the American Christians to rise up and take back their country.
