commentary: Do Americans Really Care? (Part One)
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 11-Jun-16; Sermon #1326c; 11 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, comparing two social movements for which we did not volunteer, namely (1) our calling into the Kingdom of God and (2) our birth into our socio-cultural milieu, asks us if we really want to continue with the one we were born into. Former President Jimmy Carter and Former Undersecretary of the Treasury under the Reagan Administration, Paul Craig Roberts, adamantly warn that we are no longer a representative democracy, but an oligarchy taken over by thugs, whose evil economic policies have put us into serfdom in our own country. Very few politicians have maintained their integrity under the vile corruption which has eroded and all but destroyed our Constitution, leaving in its place the pathetic conditions, described by Isaiah, in which children are our oppressors and women rule over us. This deplorable situation apparently cannot be corrected by the voting booth, but only through revolution. The President and the Supreme Court know they can roll roughshod over the Constitution because they have gotten away with it before. What neither one of them knows is that God has the ultimate word about everything, always sovereign over time, and will allow the consequences to befall our people for breaking His Holy Law. God is taking away our liberties because of immorality.
