Does God wink at the sins of a nation?
America could learn a lot from the Scriptures. We know He is no respecter of persons. Why should we think he is a respecter of nations? Do we really think he will treat America differently than he treated the nations in history?
2 Chronicles 28
Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: but he did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord, like David his father:
2 For he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and made also molten images for Baalim.
3 Moreover he burnt incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.
4 He sacrificed also and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.
5 Wherefore the Lord his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria; and they smote him, and carried away a great multitude of them captives, and brought them to Damascus.
Some people say God will not judge America for her sin. If Ahaz and his people were delivered into the hands of an enemy for killing their children and serving gods of wickedness, why would he deal with America differently?
It might be good for America to turn away from wickedness and ask God for forgiveness.
