Degradation of Civilizations When Almighty God is Asked to Butt Out in Futility

Why indeed: what are the implications of what we see and how are they to be dealt with? But one must be ready to accept the answer, however unpleasant it is.

In matter of fact, what we see is the circumstances of a world gone after its own delusion that mankind can govern itself, when the evidence is that not only are they not capable, they are suffering from an innate unwillingness for many to try.

It 'seems' Islam is getting the upper hand; and for a season, it is becoming apparent they will gain certain leverage in the face of secularistic mentalities woven into former 'christianesque' societies that have forgotten a basic universal truth: there is an Almighty God and He does have the universe in His hand.

Now, it has been asked: how does an omniscient loving God allow for a world to get so out of hand? First, He gave mankind free choice, which was quickly spent on choosing the wrong thing, condemning humanity to receive all the consequences of rebelling from Almighty God.

Governments cannot solve all the problems of humanity; indeed government cannot control men in general beyond death. So death becomes a defining factor: is it not death that is required payment for all humanity; only the reason and manner is left to be determined?

Muslims are not alone in requiring death for acts against their way of belief, yet they are becoming the reigning agents of such actions by their own admission. If they gain governmental control, as they have in Iran, then it becomes apparent that death for being non-Muslim will become the rule.

By our government, it is assumed what is meant is the current American Administration's idea of a government for the United States is at question. But the executive branch is not alone, having partners in collusion in the legislative and judicial branches as well, all having lost the way to govern in truth.

When, one may ask, will the government of the United States start being American again? There is an answer, but that was kicked out the door about fifty years ago. That is why the current government is not giving the Muslims a run for the money; they're handing it to them on thousand ton pallets as tribute under penalty of death.

But while the government seemingly cannot control these events, the individual does have an out. Do not trust in the government that will not deliver from death, but trust in Him who does deliver from death. When one trusts in Almighty God through Jesus Christ, then one will understand why there is no need to fear the Muslims of the world, for they do not trust in Jesus Christ and that's the difference the United States and United Nations cannot redefine even as they cannot redefine 'Palestine' into Israel.
