Perhaps you’ve heard that Ruth Graham once said, “If God doesn’t judge America soon He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Early Wednesday morning it appears that God has removed His hand of blessing from our nation and the light of freedom dimmed for the human race. Americans embraced gay marriage, public funding for unrestricted abortion, death panels, the power of the government to dictate to the religious conscience of believers, a depleted and demoralized military, a projected national debt of $20 T and the destruction of the national safety net. A defiant people shook their fist at God and insisted on getting their own way, I can guarantee they will not like the results. There’s a glimmer of hope…House Republicans, 30 Governors and the Tea Party…but who will lead? But, even worse, the election is a damning indictment of the American church. If Sodom and Gomorrah fell for lack of 10 righteous men…what do these election results say about the state of the American church?Compromised and complicit in the state of the American culture, the church is no longer salt and light.
