And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem. (II Samuel 11:1 KJV)
II Samuel 11 is about how King David started to involve with adultery and crime. Even though King David had a solid relationship with God, it doesn’t mean that godly people hardly to fall into the temptation of sins. Romans 3:23 tells us that we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We cannot say that we sinned because of Adam and Eve. We all have freedom to choose which life we want to live for.
Let me ask this hard question: Will the America return to homeland? I’m not talking about the generation of President George Washington. Most America people believe that this country was founded by the principle of the Holy Bible. This means, before today’s generation, there was less crime, violence, and murder in streets; pornography was not allowed in the entertainment industries; every student had the right to pray and read the Bible in their public schools. But, nowadays, we go to opposite direction of American’s life.
We started to sin like King David sinned. But, unlike David, our nation is kept thirsty for sins. Our nation started to open door for other nations to come and live among us. Then, other nations started to bring their cultures and belief systems into America. As we can see, we have brought Catholicism, Hinduism, Muslim, Taoism, Satanism, Witchcraft, Bone and Skull, and other world religions and rituals into our nation.
Our public education system is now corrupted with witchcraft, sexism, hate, and crime. The entertainment contains with violence, sex, and weapons. Our churches began to develop as Las Vegas places. We have gone from God so far that we have forgotten our engagement vows with Him. The national leaders cannot lead us to right direction because people have forced them into wrong paths. Our president is doing nothing to bring the nation into God. Christian marriages are fallen apart as the secular world. Many teenagers are suffered from drugs, strangers, violence, crime, secular education system, and parents’ marriage issues.
As Carman, Christian artist, stated, “America needs God again.” We need God in our nation. King David finally came into realization what he did was crime for his relationship with God and with his nation (see II Samuel 12). Our nation could not have another great spiritual revival until our nation would return to God.
