Hope For The Future

Bobby Jindal, the bright star of the Republican party, brought a wonderful rebuttal to Obama's extremely optimistic state of the Union address. (You can watch it here)

Both messages were very clear. Obama, besides stating some erroneous facts, believes that the government is the solution to the problem. Jindal, on the other hand, says that government is the problem. His emphasis on personal responsibility was very refreshing. Jindal's personal experience during Hurricane Katrina, which he shares in the rebuttal, backs this up.
This is a very important concept and it's fragile because governm
ent without God, becomes god, demanding complete control over everything.

After
taking a look at Obama's speech, I asked a question I've asked myself many times before: how did it get so complicated? Why did our nation fall from following the Word of God? I mean, it seems so simple:Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

Yet, as humans do, we have fallen.

But God has always preserved a remnant...
Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal...

Let us look with hope to the future, anticipating the mighty works that God will accomplish to His honor and glory!

BTW, I'm seriously thinking Bobby Jindal for president next election

It is a matter of the unfaithfulness of the church. Liberal theology has focused on being "relevant", to the point where it has become indistinguishable from the secular culture. The mega-church movement, with its "seeker-centered" methodology, again offers no counter to the secular culture. Too many evangelical churches have turned to the prosperity gospel, or simply to feel-good cheerleading. Secularism faces no threat from them. Historically, only confessional, law-honoring, sin-exposing, and man-debasing theology and preaching has changed cultures. To change MEN, we must focus on GOD. That is how we got Calvin's Geneva or Knox's Scotland. We can hardly blame secular culture for disintegrating if WE haven't given a better answer.
