This is the new battle cry for the crowd that preaches “political correctness” even if their views offend everyone else in our society. Our Constitution was built on the concept of immutable rights, and most Americans have bought into this idea, believing that rights are the path to freedom.
Because the framers of our Constitution failed to expressly establish the Constitution on Biblical ethics, the 9th Amendment has been interpreted to include rights to abortion, contraception, homosexual behavior, transgender, and similar sexual privacy rights imposed by judges which are Biblical infractions.
America was sold down the river when the framers replaced God-expected responsibilities and duties to obey God with optional rights. The Bible gives no evidence of God-given (unalienable) rights but rather responsibilities to follow God’s laws and ethics or reap the consequences (Prov. 13:15).
Constitutional rights are now being interpreted to include natural rights, human rights, civil rights, political rights, educational rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, health care rights, welfare rights, homosexual rights and animal rights. Had the framers provided for a government established upon God’s moral laws, the Constitution rights claimed by so many people in our society would be recognized as sin and punished as moral aberrations, and in some sins as homosexuality the death penalty.
Why is so much given in the Bible about God’s dealings with nations of the world? What concern is all this historical data to us today? When we read of God’s threats and warnings to nations of the past, do you think of our own situation? We are told that, “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Prov. 14:34). That which turned God’s blessings from ancient Israel could also turn His blessings from America. “Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue” (Hosea 8:3).
Aren’t we becoming completely immoral and casting off that which is good? If these things turned God’s blessings from Israel then, why would not the same thing turn God’s blessings from America today?
Are we as a Sodom and Gomorrah, ripening for the kill? Are we testing the patience of God? Have we become insensitive to the wrongs of our land in the murder of 57 million human beings since 1973? Just how far can we go, and where is the turning point? There is no way to judge the future but by the past.
What will make a nation strong? If political correctness would do it, Rome would not have fallen. If military might would do it, Germany would never have fallen. If religious liberalism (idolatry) would do it, Israel would not have fallen. External things alone do not make a nation strong.
America’s hope lies in her God. If America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways: then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chronicles 7:14).
