Amoral Leadership for Amoral America
Amoral - having no moral standards, restraints, or
principles; unaware of or indifferent to questions of right or
Shallow. That is the best way to describe those who are being
paraded before us as legitimate contenders for election to the
highest office in the land. "Men without chests" is
what C. S. Lewis coined them. Has that ever been more apparent
than what the two major parties present to us today? Oh, how I
long for a man who will "call them as he sees them."
But, unfortunately, the modern political philosophy of the day is
that the safest position to take in politics is "no
position," or as we have seen in the latest
"debates," both positions!
Today’s candidates have become masters of fence riding
and doublespeak. Sadly, most of the electorate, dumbed-down by
government education and indoctrinated with moral relativism, is
unable to fight through the fog.
As I listened to Rudy Giuliani waffleon about how he is
"personally" against abortion but for a woman’s
"right" to make the "difficult" choice, it
became obvious to me that Truth has fallen in the streets. Murder
is now called choice. A-merica is becoming a-moral. Too bad Rudy
is not worried about terrorism in the womb. There will be
terrorism in the world as long as we permit terrorism in the
James 1:8 "A double minded man is unstable in all his
Psalms 94:16-17 "Who will rise up for Me against the
evildoers? or who will stand up for Me against the workers of
iniquity" "Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul
had almost dwelt in silence."
No wonder America is wavering. Our leaders no longer believe
in right and wrong. Consider where this moral double-mindedness
has taken us.
Pornography is protected speech, but prayer is not.
A 16 year can have an abortion but she can’t smoke a
Seat belts are mandatory, citizenship is not.
Homosexuality is love, opposition to it is hate.
We worship Mother Earth and deny Father God.
Hip-hop vulgarity floods the school’s hallway while
Gospel expression is censored.
Public school students told to have sex and to do drugs, but
Bible preaching is forbidden.
But the fix is in. After Ron Paul raised a few eyebrows in the
"debates," the forces were marshalled against him to
make sure that no "outof- the-mainstream" positions
were permitted on the stage. The preselected 1st tier of
candidates were the only ones to be taken seriously. Congressman
Paul and his ilk were not welcome in the "big tent"
Republican debates. Make your choice, Rudy, McCain, or Romney.
Any other candidate is a distraction because no one else is
capable of winning. And Christians are eating it up. We have been
told to ignore the Republican Party’s amoral positions in
an attempt to be more "inclusive." Eeny, Meeny, and
Miney, are your choices. Forget Mo, because he just can’t
win. So, I listened closely to what Eeny, Meeny, and Miney said
last week. They’re great at doublespeak. No matter which
position you hold, they share it. What a deal! Finally a
candidate that thinks like me!
But Rudy is the master. As I said before, he is
"personally" against abortion, but for a woman’s
right to "choose." He would like to see all abortions
"end" but doesn’t think the government should
intervene in a woman’s right to "reproductive
choice." He likes Judges Scalia and Alito, but agrees with
Judge Ginsburg. So the candidates are able to get away with a
position that supports the killing of innocent children in the
safety of a mother’s womb, even though he/she is
"personally" against abortion. What a crock. Allow me
to extrapolate how vacuous this position is.
Since a candidate "supports" a position that he/she
is "personally" opposed to, wouldn’t it be safe
to assume that he/she applies the same rationale to other issues?
Would you seriously consider a candidate who took the following
I am personally opposed to slavery, but I am for a
slave-owners right to choose.
I personally oppose rape, but I am for a rapist’s right
to personal choice.
I personally oppose murder, but I am for a murderer’s
right to do it.
I personally oppose lynching, but I am for a white man’s
I am personally opposed to incest, but I am for father’s
I personally oppose suicide bombings, but who am I to tell
another how he can express his faith?
I personally oppose border jumping, but I am for a man’s
right to choose what is best for his family.
I am personally opposed to…………you
fill in the blank. Both positions is no position.
Judges 21:25 "In those days there was no king in
Israel: every man did that which was right in his own
We have reached a water-shed moment in American history.
Doublemindedness will be our undoing. Compartmentalized morality
will no longer work. Amorality is no morality.
I Kings 18:21 "And Elijah came unto all the people,
and said, ‘How long halt ye between two opinions? if the
LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him." And
the people answered him not a word."
Obviously, Almighty God is Pro- Choice. But He instructs us on
what to choose.
Deuteronomy 30:20 " . . . I have set before you life
and death, blessing and cursing: therefore, choose life, that
both you and your children shall live. . ."
How have we reached the point where amoral men are chosen as
leaders? Where personal morality can be separated from public
morality? Where sin has become a government- protected right? And
those who speak the truth are called radicals or negative?
Our Christian leadership encourages their flock to support the
"lesser of two evils?" What Scripture verse is that,
the supporting of any evil?
"Let it be impressed on your mind that God commands
you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of
God." Exodus 18:21.
If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men
in office, they will soon be corrupted . . . If our government
fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be
because the citizens neglect the Divine commands, and elect bad
men to make and administer the laws." [Noah Webster, The
History of the United States (New Haven: Durrie and Peck, 1832),
pp. 336-337, 49]
Stop pointing your finger at the lost and start pointing your
fingers at the found.
"If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is
responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment,
the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and
worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its
interest in Christianity, the pulpit is responsible for it. If
Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is
responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the
very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the
pulpit is responsible for it." —Charles Finney
If you have the courage, read what Finney said about our
Christian duty. The salt has lost its’ savor and Amoral
A-merica is rotting at the core.
Would Jesus tell us to vote for Eeny, Meeny, or Miney? Go
ahead. Follow their lead.
Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good
evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put
bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter."
