Naked and No Shame

January 31, 2020

Most non-whites in the United States of America has always known, and even now know that justice within its borders are unjust.  “Liberty and justice for all” has rang hollow throughout America’s history, yet she still willfully offers a check with insufficient funds to all who might have hope.  Every level of morality has been and is being violated, every level of political and civil law has been and is being violated, and every level of religious standard has been and is being violated.  It should be of no surprise, especially when the Word of God, the Bible, declares:

“The Lord looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
 All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.” – Psalm 14:2-3 (NIV)

Our only hope is true repentance, but how will that ever occur if you declare, “I am perfect, I did nothing wrong, I have no need of repentance.” Sadly, this perspective isn’t singular but rather it’s the majority of those living within the borders of America, it is AMERICA.  Blinded by greed and godlessness, America trudges down the pathway to her doom. The only question that remains is, “will you too continue to hold fast to her skirt and be delivered into destruction?”  God declares,

 “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.  I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.   Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.” – Revelation 3:17-19 (NIV)
