Did you ever have a thought roll through your mind that you knew was not self-generated? It happened to me about 2 weeks ago when I was teetering on the brink of sleep.
‘The foundation is gone.’
When I woke up the next morning I remembered it, which was also rather odd. Then I started thinking about George Washington’s warning during his inaugural address in New York City –
‘…the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained; and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.
In various writings and speeches, Washington referred to the foundation and pillars of the United States – namely morality and virtue. Sadly, I believe the ‘word’ I received indicated that this foundation has now been lost. Sure, there are beacons of Christs light….His TRUE light….not the false light of permissive immorality and ego-stroking narcissism.
The foundation has been jackhammered, folks. It’s gone. Now it’s up to everyone to get their spiritual houses in order. As a Catholic, I’m going to be going to confession soon. The Church teaches that the priest acts ‘in persona Christi’ or ‘in the person of Christ’ when one confesses sin. The below video also mentions being ‘born again.’ Catholic doctrine teaches that being ‘born again’ happens at the time of Baptism through water and the Holy Spirit. Just wanted to mention that, but there is far more to unite us than divide us in 2015…
On a day to day basis, no Christian should be publicly APPLAUDING immorality in any way. That being said, in the case of homosexuality, for example, such people should not be condemned by Christians. We have no idea what scars brought an individual to that behavior. HOWEVER, the current societal dictatorship of homosexuality must be personally rejected. We are ordained to seek the approval of God, not man.
Here’s the latest video from Cahn…and he does mention a ‘foundation’ –
