We Need to Buy a Clue!
America is embroiled in many public scandals today! The expose is growing. The Washington Post has consolidated some of these in "Mr. Obama and his scandals." It lists among other things how that the "Justice Department" leaks documents to attack a whistle blower who expose the "Fast and Furious" debacle, the IRS targeting conservative political and religious groups, the Justice Department violating the First Amendment snooping into Associated Press and Fox News reporters seeking to intimidate, the Benghazi atrocity which is worse than Watergate, and.... the list goes on.
I submit that this is the fruit of more than 50 years of a growing rejection of the Lord and His moral commands. In 1963 prayer was banned by our Supreme Court and one year later the court banned bible reading which was followed as school after school removed the 10 commandments.
President Harry S Truman popularized the saying "the buck stops here." This administration acts like the "buck stops there, and there and there..." anywhere but here. Blame shifting and avoiding responsibility seem to be the protocol of the day.
Here is a dollar for those who need to buy a clue! The rejection and erosion of our relationship with The Lord has undermined our moral fabric. No system, I repeat, NO SYSTEM can survive and function without character. The family unit can not survive. Capitalism will not work. A Justice Department run by people with no morals will not uphold laws. The IRS will not stay within the confines of the law when it is run by people with no internal moral boundaries. Here is another secret for those who believe socialism or communism is a better system. They won't work without moral boundaries either. What do you think led to the downfall of the Soviets?
Judgment began in the household of God as scandal after scandal has been revealed and I have not doubt it will continue as our Lord cleans house. But now this trend has spilled over into other spheres of society.
