It Begins With Evangelicalism

The choices offered to voters is a reflection of our nation both spiritually and morally. Evangelicals, take a look at the churches before you point fingers at either politician. I'll put it another way: Mark Driscoll, John Piper, Beth Moore, Rick Warren, Tim Keller, the Presbyterian churches, the SBC, the UMC, the "Christian" magazines, the "Christian" "artists"; adultery, fornication, pedophilia, homosexuality,plagiarism, coarse talking from the leaders down to the church-goers, divorce, mysticism, feminism, evolution, rejecting all biblical doctrine as all important (starting with Genesis 1-3), church gluttony (spending millions of dollars on church buildings, leaders double-dipping) are the reasons God is judging this nation. He begins with the household of God. That's where we should start too.

1Pe 4:17  For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 


Mal 1:8 "But when you present the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And when you present the lame and sick, is it not evil? Why not offer it to your governor? Would he be pleased with you? Or would he receive you kindly?" says the LORD of hosts.

Mal 1:13 "You also say, 'My, how tiresome it is!' And you disdainfully sniff at it," says the LORD of hosts, "and you bring what was taken by robbery and what is lame or sick; so you bring the offering! Should I receive that from your hand?" says the LORD.
Mal 1:14 "But cursed be the swindler who has a male in his flock and vows it, but sacrifices a blemished animal to the Lord, for I am a great King," says the LORD of hosts, "and My name is feared among the nations."

"Good enough" mentality. Even the pagans would be offended but Evangelicals think God should be pleased. They have more respect for their political and spiritual leaders than they do for the Holy One of Israel.

Jer 23:14 "Also among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: The committing of adultery and walking in falsehood; And they strengthen the hands of evildoers, So that no one has turned back from his wickedness. All of them have become to Me like Sodom, And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.

Jer 23:17 "They keep saying to those who despise Me, 'The LORD has said, "You will have peace"'; And as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, They say, 'Calamity will not come upon you.' Jer 23:18 "But who has stood in the council of the LORD, That he should see and hear His word? Who has given heed to His word and listened?

Eze 34:1  Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, 

Eze 34:2  "Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy and say to those shepherds, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Woe, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flock? 
Eze 34:3  "You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat sheep without feeding the flock. 
Eze 34:4  "Those who are sickly you have not strengthened, the diseased you have not healed, the broken you have not bound up, the scattered you have not brought back, nor have you sought for the lost; but with force and with severity you have dominated them. 
Eze 34:5  "They were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and they became food for every beast of the field and were scattered.
