Have you ever noticed how the former Soviet Union, China, Iran and North Korea have very little innovation of their own? They steal technology from the Western World!
It is obvious, that these countries are less enlightened. Is it because they are less intelligent? The answer is an emphatic no! So then, why is there such a wide glaring gap in accomplishment? The answer is spiritual in nature and has to do with inspiration.
Genesis 2:7, “And the LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.”
The breath, or spirit of man, is his very existence. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, their spirit and soul were thrust into darkness. The brightness of their understanding was taken captive by sin if you will.
First John 1:5, “This then is the message we have heard of Him and declare to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
Second Corinthians 4:4, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to the light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness for sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith, that is in Me.”
The nations of people that embraced Christianity in the not too distant past are still thriving off of the light, that came to them. Consider South Korea. A large percentage of South Koreans turned to Christianity, and their small country has an economy as large as Russia, and their GDP is about 8th in the world. But it is not so with North Korea, which nation still sits in much darkness unto this day.
Europe and the USA used to be predominantly Christian and thrived off of the light of Christ both spiritually and economically. Any nation that does not have Christ, does not have the light of life, and the collateral benefit of innovation in the same way as the Christian nations. Any Christian nation that turns its back on Christ, will have less and less light, and thus become less and less blessed and protected. The collateral damage of this decline is less and less innovation.
Don’t get me wrong here. Even secular men are created in the image of Almighty God, and are therefore smart and creative, but those who have received the light of Christ unto themselves are by their new nature brighter, and no longer blind.
This brings me to the essence of the title of this post. The reason the Democrat Party is so devoid of wisdom and understanding; is because, they are spiritually blind. They have turned their backs on Almighty God and have sold the soul of their party to Satan. They now walk in darkness. Their morality is twisted and tainted.
The Republican Party is in grave danger of joining the democrats in their blindness, because they are slowly compromising truth and light.
Almighty God and His Son YaHshua Jesus are the source of truth, light, innovation and creativity. It is madness, that people would turn their backs on Almighty God, but spiritually blind people walk in darkness and are very blind to common sense and wisdom. It is an astonishing, and headshaking sight, that takes your breath away. To stand and watch them make one absurd move after another almost defies explanation. They are pushing America over the cliff, thinking that they are moral and doing a good thing.
