AFFLUENCE, SIN, OBAMA: U.S. ALWAYS UNDER ATTACK
J. Grant Swank, Jr.
America has always been under attack.
Communists said they’d bury us.
Remember those days when we were instructed as school children to duck under the desks if we heard the alarms? Civil Defense quarters were broadcast so we could find shelter. Some built underground bunkers in their front yards.
Then came along our own opulence. As a Christian given to frugal lifestyle, I became alarmed as America became more and more enamored with its toys. We were beleaguered by our own materialistic lusts.
Things were gods. Money was the Promised Land. And boasting of tangibles was the all-in-all creed. I pondered if we would implode because of our money success—monster homes, for example.
Add to this the “increase of sin,” as Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24. He said it would be one of the prime signs of the close of the Church Age.
Now sin abounds as that which is right. People opt for living together rather than marriage. It is posh to have that significant other. Same-sex ‘marriage’ is the legitimate right.
Sanctuaries empty. Churches close. Clergy trespass. Denominations go left with immoral doctrines.
In the Church of the Nazarene, the holiness denomination in which I was raised, website NazNet, for instance, has Moderator Hans Deventer champion a Bible that is fraught with errors. This is totally against the reliable divine revelation that was preached since the church’s start.
Deventer is joined by Moderator Scott Cundiff who believes in the same errant Scripture. Site Founder and Moderator Dave McClung does nothing to bring these two persons in line with holiness beliefs, though he states repeatedly that the site is Nazarene-friendly. It is not. It is just the opposite.

So we have had threats all along as a biblically originated nation. The thirteen colonies were composed of believers who taught Scripture to school children. Some preachers were renegades; but by and large village pastors delivered sermons regarding biblical truth as God’s Word—without question.
This is the only country on the planet that had such an origin. No other nation had settlers who carried their Bibles, kept the Lord’s Day holy, held to scriptural morality and taught judgment day accountability.
Heaven and hell were real. Jesus was Redeemer. Salvation was through conversion to Jesus. And the God of the Book was the Mighty God.
Of course there were theological liberals who opposed that biblical base; but by and large believers seeking religious freedom in the New World held to the Word’s eternal verities.
In this present age, we have as a citizenry created our own enemies in opulence, outright sinful lifestyles and a steady disregard for the Bible.
But we are still here. Why?
God has continued to show mercy because of the righteous remnant. Their prayers, added to the early colonies’ intercessory prayers, keep divine grace upon America.
It is God’s holy nature to honor is own persona. He cannot go against His caring personhood; consequently, the Republic still stands.
The newest threat to the United States is the Oval Office’s Marxist Muslim and his shadow government/czars impregnating evil government. He is out to destroy our democracy, in that sense beheading the infidels. He has long publicly witnessed that he is Muslim, though too many have never recognized that as fact.
In his left of left policies now set forth with the majority of Democrats in Congress, he is fully intent in obliterating the nation.
Nevertheless, God is still on His throne. God tops Satan.
Therefore, since Allah is Satan, the Koran was scribed by demons, and Islam is a hellish cult, God continues to defend His righteous remnant. His grace children, by simple faith, believe in that with their entire beings.
Consequently, this latest threat from a cult and its devotee, Barack Hussein Obama, will not do away with this Republic. God will level His wrath against those who would obliterate the only country planted in biblical truth.
