    This is true. That's why I believe America will not recover from this steep decline that's happening in all respects. We would love for it to turn around with the next president, but I see us as the band on the Titanic that continued to play while the ship upended to an impossible angle and then sank rapidly. The forces were so great against the ship, that nothing could stop it from going down. I can't sugarcoat how I see it. While this is a terrible thing, we know Jesus is coming. That's the beauty we can look forward to on the horizon, beyond all the evil and chaos in the here and now. This is not our home, my friends.

    Very well stated. If we as watchers believe the time is near, then that would mean our country has passed the Spirtual tipping point. I pray for those who are sitting on the fence, make a choice today, to believe in Him that the Father sent.
    Galatians 2: 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.

    Personally, I believe the spiritual tipping point and the beginning of the end of the United States started in 1963 when the Supreme Court banned school prayer. What we're seeing now, with the same court most likely supporting homosexual "marriage" or kicking it back to the States, which most have already overridden the will of the voters who rejected it, is the death knell of this country. Truthfully, this nation deserves Barack Obama as its leader because as a whole it has been shaking its fist at God for the last 52 years. I believe God has reached His breaking point and the acceptance of homosexuality as "normal" in this country, instead of it being seen as what the bible says it is - perversion - is going to be the last nail in this once great country's coffin. Turn off the lights, it's time to go home, the fat lady has sung. It happened to the Greeks and Romans and now it's happening to this country.

    It is sad, but I think you are correct.

    Exactly right.

    Having lived through that era I remember that in a very short time frame -- @10 years -- our country began a swift downward slide, suffering one evil on top of the other from which we never recovered.

    Almost overnight after God was banned from schools we saw the assassination of a President with other high-profile assassinations a few years later,

    Gay rights groups sprung up while the Womens Liberation Movement bashed femininity, men, and marriage,

    A movement Time magazine named "the new morality" celebrated promiscuity and drugs among young people,

    Our soldiers were no longer honored but spit upon,

    Racist Jim Crowe "Dixiecrats" took over the Democrat party under the alias "progressives", pretending to be champions of civil rights to harness the black vote,

    Abortion became the law of the land.


    Yep, I remember it all so well. Knowing that God does not stay where He's not wanted it's not difficult to see how our society became what it is today.

    Default Supreme Court extends same-sex marriage nationwide

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...06-26-10-02-52

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court declared Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States.Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court's 5-4 ruling means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.

    The SCOTUS has decided that our Constitution gives homosexuals the right to marry. It is no longer up to the individual state to decide the matter.

    full article here: https://www.yahoo.com/politics/supre...495807066.html

    The Supreme Court has found a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, striking down bans in 14 states and handing a historic victory to the gay rights movement that would have been unthinkable just 10 years ago.

    We are Sodom and Gomorrah! We will face the Hand of Almighty God. We have turned a corner and are now a wicked nation.

    I fear this won't be enough of a "victory" for the LGBT community. I fear that it will only embolden them to go after churches/Christians that don't support it. This time, the law will be on their side. Things are starting to get really scary around here. Now, more than ever, I am so grateful to know that God is in control and I belong to Him!!!

    The stupid reasoning is that people should be able to marry whomever they love. Incest here we come.

    They don't care that they just spit in God's face.

    and the war on us christians has started

    next the churches and prayer ministries will be targeted for believing in the bible


    this isn't about tolerance for the LGBT movement, it is about censoring Christians

    So much for the concept of states' rights. And as a nation we continue to tell God that we know better than He does. Next up, attacking Bible believing churches and groups under the guise of protecting equality and fighting 'discrimination'.
