Sin, Corruption and the Fall of America, by Armstrong Williams

Because the flames of judgment touched on the edges of Sodom and Gomorrah, two cities steeped in corruption and depravity, the almighty God regarded upon them with disdain. Their wickedness had reached some extent of no return, and so he determined to unleash his fiery wrath upon them, lowering them to ash straight away. These cities have lengthy been used as a cautionary story, a warning of the hazards of sin and the implications that include it. And now, as we replicate on the troubled instances we discover ourselves in, it appears that evidently our personal nation, America, is teetering getting ready to an analogous destiny. Our personal sins and shortcomings are threatening to tear us other than inside, bringing us nearer and nearer to our personal day of reckoning.

As our nation stands on the precipice of smash, it turns into more and more obvious that our downfall has been caused by our personal excesses. Not will we face the struggles of illness, starvation or poverty — fairly, we’ve got develop into so comfy and safe that we’ve got turned inward, tearing each other aside over petty squabbles and trivial issues. In a world the place we’ve got all the pieces we may presumably need, we’ve got overpassed what actually issues, and consequently, we’re tearing ourselves aside. It’s a tragic irony that in our quest for perfection, we’ve got doomed ourselves to destruction.

It appears that evidently in America, a lot of the strife and battle that we see at this time stems from a choose few teams and people who’re pushing their very own agendas, typically on the expense of others. With out the affect of those radicals, such because the transgender motion, radical feminists, corruptible politicians and criminals, it appears that almost all of People would have the ability to stay peaceable, comfy lives, surrounded by the fruits of our nation’s ingenuity and abundance. We have now entry to the newest applied sciences, a wide range of low cost and sustainable sources of meals and water, and a strong labor market that permits us to construct, restore and stay wholesome lives.

In fact, not each American is so blessed with comforts, however each American is blessed with alternative. So, why then would the Biden administration secretly enlist a transgender particular person with a historical past of theft to develop insurance policies that might doubtlessly brainwash youngsters? Why would faculty officers, who make exorbitant salaries, push our kids towards the brink of criminality? And why would Massive Tech corporations, who have already got billions of {dollars} in income and an immense quantity of energy, proceed to steal our information and share it with the Chinese language authorities, or censor the views of harmless People? It is easy to state that this conduct is merely indicative of a want for energy and wealth, however maybe it goes deeper than that. Maybe it is a determined must form the world in accordance with one’s personal design, not because of a wanting for energy however a results of necessity that fashioned from the shortage of plights these depraved folks endure.

The foundation of the issue shouldn’t be essentially that individuals on totally different sides of the ideological spectrum basically disagree on points. Most individuals in america, no matter their political opinions, care concerning the well-being and security of their households and their nation. The problem is that we’ve got develop into a society that solely permits for black and white pondering, the place people are judged primarily based on one motion or assertion and labeled as excessive or bigoted. As a consequence, nobody can safely have a productive dialog or publicly state their views with out being labeled as excessive by one group of individuals. This is the reason we’re divided; we’re fast to label somebody primarily based on a single motion or assertion, with out contemplating the context or the individual’s general character. We have now misplaced religion within the skill to evaluate others pretty and to see the nuances and complexities of any state of affairs.

Think about there are two doorways in entrance of you, one labeled “tolerance” and the opposite labeled “intolerance.” You might be requested to decide on which door to undergo, primarily based on which one you imagine you embody. How many individuals may actually undergo the door of “tolerance”? No one; it’s probably that nobody may actually select the door of tolerance, as everybody has a point of prejudice. So, why is it then that after we see an occasion of illiberal conduct we’re so fast to evaluate an individual after we aren’t any higher? If we will separate our views from the labels we place on others and have respectful conversations with those that disagree with us, we will work towards a extra united and fewer divided society.

I implore you to assemble with these you maintain expensive. Could the love you share along with your family and friends be rooted in mutual respect and appreciation, fairly than shared ideologies. These moments of togetherness will quickly be few and much between. You might huddle by the hearth, provide up prayers and cling to hope, however in the end, America will meet its demise — not by divine fireplace however by the unrest of its personal residents, determined to guard all that we maintain expensive in a misguided, pointless and futile effort to save lots of the nation.

If we hope to save lots of our nation, we do not want a pacesetter to guard us. We merely want folks in energy to remain quiet about what America actually wants. Leaping from one ideological chief to the subsequent won’t save us. What we want is for people to have the ability to stay their lives freely, with out interference from these in energy. Solely then can America be born anew and thrive.
