Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Too Busy to Stop...

Human beings like to watch each other. One of the keys to the success of our television program has been the inclusion of interviews on the street. It’s fascinating to see how people react, and hear their perspectives, especially when it comes to God and the afterlife.

There is another interesting aspect of human beings. It is that we keep repeating history. Every four or so years, we become disgruntled with our leaders and vote in some new and exciting selected few with their new concepts. Four or so years later, we become disgruntled, and repeat the same process.

We are like a man who insists on trying to chop down a tree, with a blunt axe. All he is doing is bruising the bark but he refuses to stop his futile efforts and sharpen the axe, because he’s too busy chopping down the tree.

Think about our national problems. We are astronomically in debt, plagued with floods, droughts, fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Cancer is killing millions. Mass shootings are commonplace. Our prisons are full to overflowing. Millions have lost their homes and are unemployed. Disease is in our soil and food. We are fighting wars we cannot win, have sleeper-cell terrorists, illegal aliens, bugs in our beds , bugs in baby food, and wood-eating bugs destroying our homes. Bees are getting in short supply. Wild animals attack people, and national TV has become one big advertisement for drug companies, revealing how sick this nation has become. The churches are filled with adulterers, pedophiles and hypocrites, and businesses are filled with corruption.

All these things are the result of a blasphemous nation that has turned its back on God. We have lost His blessing. Calls for political change are nothing but a blunt axe. We need to stop as a nation, and sharpen the axe by turning to God--through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
