Sanity Has Left The Building

I want you to turn in your bibles to Romans chapter 1 starting at verse 20.

You know for the last 20 years or so I've seen a steady pattern of mass insanity take hold of this once great & proud nation. I suppose it might even have started before that, all the way back to the 60's, when The Ten Commandments and prayer was taken out of our public schools. Madelyn Murray O'hare unleashed an ungodly attack upon this nation's youth and the dominoes began to fall. Where was the church the "so called body of Christ" in all of this?? Deadly silent. Why?? God only knows, but the resulting chaos of that decade as it came to a close, bulldozed morality, responsibilty and common sense nearly into oblivion. Satan was having a field day, and no one seemed to care.

This was my generation when morality was tossed in the proverbial toilet. Sex, drugs and rock and roll were the mainstays of my generation's future. We lived soley for "today." This was MY generation, called to fight a war that started out as a noble fight against the spread of communism, but ended up a cash cow to line the pockets of Washington Bureaucrats and various mega-corporations. Yes, greedy politicians & CEOS got rich while America's youth was wasted in the jungles of Vietnam. That's when I became a conservative. I discovered very early that it wasn't America's youth that was responsible for what was happening to the country, it was self interest groups actively seeking to bring the country down. That fight continues to this day, and has only intensified.

Let's pray:

Have you found the book of Roman's yet?? Here's what it says. Vs. 20 "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead(divine nature)., so that they are without excuse." vs. 21 "because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were they thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." vs. 22 "Profesing to be wise, they became fools." NKJV

There used to be an old United Negro College Fund commercial that told us, that "the mind is a terrible thing to waste." Well I'm here to tell you Losing one’s mind is even worse. As we sit here to today it is clear to me that America has lost her mind. Sanity has left the building !!!

What is the mind? It is "the element, part, substance, or process that reasons, thinks, feels, wills, perceives, judges, etc." In most Americans this part of the brain no longer functions. For many the loss of our mind is a result of the "mind blowing" experiences of the drug filled sixties, or from sitting at the feet of the radical Humanists who continue to permeate our nation’s universities, to this day or perhaps from a life filled with Oprah, Dr. Phil, Jerry Springer and the Cable News outlets. The result of these influences ?? The average American no longer thinks on his or her own. Ridiculous you say, let me continue.

Years in the public-fool system has sucked all ability to use logic and reason out of our populace. Americans have been systematically dumbed-down. "No Tax Dollar Left Behind" had as its goal a slick transformation in educational method. Measure, measure, measure, test, test, test. This is the only way, we were told, to determine whether or not our children are learning.

Testing measures rote memory. In other words, for those of you who never learned that word, it means a measurement of WHAT YOU HAVE MEMORIZED?? "Jack Spratt could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean." Today’s "testing" measures whether you can recite the poem, not your ability to analyze the dietary principles enunciated therein. (I used those fancy words so that you would know I still have my mind.)

Logic is the ability to frame an argument based on knowledge. Knowledge is "acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation" and reason requires the application of logic in order to determine the validity of a particular theory. Ultimately, wisdom is the goal. Wisdom is "the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting." Proverbs 4:7 says "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting, get understanding." NKJV

"What is true, right, or lasting...." hmmm, sort of puts you in mind of the knowledge we are pumping into America’s young "skulls full of mush," doesn’t it? "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." Rom. 1:22 KJV

What is a fool? Why, a fool is "a person who lacks judgment or sense." Americans and our schools are producing "trained-fools". Not just fools, as in "a stupid person," but trained fools, fools who have been "coached in or accustomed to a mode of behavior or performance." Is it any wonder that our standard of living, our morality and the hopes of a bright and prosperous future are sinking like a boulder tossed into a lake.

All wrong thinking leads to wrong action. The thief thought he would get away with it. The rapist never thought he would get caught. The teenager never thought she would get pregnant. The addict never thought they would get hooked. Can you see where this is going ??

Just because you believe something, anything, does not make it true. We no longer teach our children HOW to think. Instead, we "coach" them on WHAT to think and then test to measure if the indoctrination has worked. Ooops, "indoctrination," that is probably another word many are not familiar with. Indoctrination is "teaching someone to accept doctrines without proof." Eliminating the process of "how to think" or reason and use of logic, produces a society incapable of grasping the concept of "ultimate responsibility." "It's not my fault."

Everywhere you look we are being "indoctrinated". Our news is almost all indoctrination. "They decide, and then report." "We have to stop Sarah Palin." "Who are you to judge?" "Global warming is destroying the planet." "Top- tier candidates." "This is what the majority of Americans think." etc. etc. American-adults have bought into the program and have lost their minds.

Just look at the garbage we are teaching our kids today:

-A child doesn’t need a mother and a father. Two moms or two dads are fine, because "we've learned" men and women are really no different. Gen. 2:24
-Homosexualty between men or women is "normal", but those who speakout against it are not. Lev. 18:22 & Lev. 20:13 & Rom. 1:26-27
-Killing a wanted unborn child is murder; killing an unwanted unborn child is choice. Isaiah 49:1 & Jer. 1:5
-Global warming kills more people than abortion.
-"Choice" is good for unborn children, but bad for born school children.

Sanity has left the building!

-A child must say no to cigarettes, but it is ok to say yes to sex. I Thess. 4:3
-Abortion is good and the death penalty is bad. Gen. 9:6 & Lev. 24:17

Sanity has left the building!

-The war against "terrorism" in Afghanistan is a waste of money.
-Islam is a "peaceful" religion, hijacked by radicals.
-We can negotiate "peaceful solutions" through diplomacy.
-Dependency on "foreign oil" costing us BILLIONS is necessary.
-Drilling for oil in the ANWR would destroy it's environment.
-Supplying aid and arms to our enemies in the Middle East is sound foreign policy.

Sanity has left the building!

-Jesus has forgiven our sins so stop talking about sin. Matt. 28:19,20
- God is not to be included in any government or public ceremonies, or education. (seperation of church and state). Psalm 34:1-3 & Psalm 150:1-6
-But as a matter of "tolerance" other religons must be taught in school. Exodus 20:3 & Jer. 25:6
-Remove the teachings of Christianity and people will naturally become good. Rom. 3:23 & I John 1:8-10
-The US Supreme Court over-rides the law of God and our Constitution. Rom. 13:1-7 & Acts 5:29
-Jesus is most concerned with making us happy nothing more. John 10:25-28 & I John 3:8
-Those who believe the Bible are not very well educated. I Cor. 1:18-20 & I Cor. 1:27,28

We spend billions of dollars anually, importing foreign oil from countries who HATE us, while racking up trillions in debt to finance programs that don't work. We have enough crude and shale oil reserves in America to make us independent of foreign sources for hundreds of years, which would allow us to apply massive amounts of the billions saved to bringing down our National Debt. But Congress & the President will not allow the oil companies to drill. Why??

Our economy is almost bankrupt and the answer to this problem is "create more programs" to further burden our deficits. Sanity has left the building. I could go on, but you get the point, don't you?? The world is fallling apart right before our eyes. The closer we come to the end of the age the more insanity we see. The more insanity I see the more I am convinced that Almighty God is STILL in control. Why you ask?? Simply because the events of today are playing out just as predicted in God's word written over 2,000 yrs. ago. Shout hallelujah somebody !!!

Yes, church the antichrist is coming, the end of the age is coming, eternity is at the door, are you ready to meet your destiny in eternity?? Are you living your life for Jesus or are you living your life for "self"?? Is your destiny Heaven or Hell?? If you don't know Jesus as your Lord and Savior you can meet Him and do it today. TODAY is the day of your salvation. Perhaps you think you found this web site by pure accident. Well my friend let me say to you that there are NO accidents with Almighty God. If you're reading one of these messages today and something touches your heart, that's the Holy Spirit giving you an open invitation to come and join the family of God.

You see, we as Christians are saved by God's grace and Jesus' willingness to die on the cross for your and my sins. He took our place and paid the price so that we can have salvation and eternal life. You won't find any other "religion" where the promise of salvation is totally based on a mere decision rooted in faith. But, God knows we are not perfect people, He knew that there was nothing WE could do to "earn" a place in heaven. So He sent His son Jesus to die on Calvary's cross. He died for you and me. But, the best part of this Gospel message is that yes, Jesus died for us, but after three days God raised Him from the dead, and He sits in Heaven right now interceding for you and me. You see, you don't go to hell for your sins, you go there because you CHOSE to reject Jesus. The choice is entirely yours. Will you choose Jesus today ?? Rom. 10:9 & 10 says: "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." vs.10 "For with the heart one believes to righteousness and with the mouth confession is made to salvation." Can you believe this today ??

Let's pray: Jesus, thank you for dying for my sins. I believe that you died for me and that you were raised from the dead, to give me eternal life in heaven. I give my life to you Lord and from this day forward I will live that life for you and my Heavenly Father. Thank you, in Jesus' name I pray......AMEN
