In June 2013, the Russian State Duma passed a federal law banning the distribution of “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” to under aged children. The vote was passed overwhelmingly 436-0. President Vladimir Putin signed it into law, because it promoted traditional Russian values contrary to governments from the Western World, it protected children, and would help to increase the declining birthrate in Russia. President Obama openly protested the Russian law by not attending the opening ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, or even sending the vice-President, First Lady or a former president to the opening ceremony. Instead, Obama put an openly homosexual tennis star named Billie Jean King into the U.S. delegation.
Did you get that? Russia and Putin are more Godly in this than the USA and President Obama! This is a shocking development. The USA in the past has demonstrated a type of moral authority world-wide in many matters, but not any more. I am embarrassed to admit, that the USA no longer stands for Christian righteousness. Sadly, the USA now stands for unrighteousness and does not have the right to preach against other nation’s faults. I am ashamed and appalled. The rest of the world needs to be on-guard, when it comes to dealing with the USA. It has gotten to the point, that much lawlessness reigns in the not-so-good USA, in the place of the Holy Bible & Christianity of times past. The USA has become a secular nation increasingly destitute of what made it great. It will not take too many more years for America to plunge into steep decline as a result. Sin is a reproach to any people. (Proverbs 14:34)
I don’t want you to think, that I believe Putin is a Godly man. I am just making a point, and I hope you will think about. It is not where you are from that impresses Almighty God. It does not matter if your nation used to be the most Godly in the world. It does not matter if your grandparents were oh so holy. What matters is, what you are doing now. The past is not good enough for today. Vladimir Putin would be a better man for president of the United States, than Barack Obama. At least Putin loves his country.
My prayer is, that I learn to think like the Almighty thinks. I want to think about people, the way YHVH thinks about people. I want to respect what YHVH respects and have contempt for what the Almighty has contempt for. Think about it: the Almighty will not bless the USA as long as they flaunt Him with their wickedness. YHVH gave His people ancient Israel into the hands of their enemies when they forsook Him and He will not think twice about doing the same with the United States. Almighty God honors those who honor Him and despises those that despise Him. (I Samuel 2:30)
