Amoral Leadership for Amoral America

(Here is an excerpt from Dave Daubenmire's article posted on the News With Views website which sadly speaks the truth about the lack of leadership of today's political "statesmen" as well as the spiritual climate of the American people, especially "Christians." Click on the title link above to read the entire article if you are interested.)

Amoral - having no moral standards, restraints, or principles; unaware of or indifferent to questions of right or wrong:

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. 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 double-speak. 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 Guilani waffle-on 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.

James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Psalm 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 cigarette.
* 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.

The pre-selected 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 Miny, 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 double-speak. 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 positions?
  • 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 justice.
  • I am personally opposed to incest, but I am for father’s rights.
  • 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 eyes.

We have reached a water-shed moment in American history. Double-mindedness will be our undoing. Compartmentalized morality will no longer work. Amorality is no morality.

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?

Exodus 18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

"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

The salt has lost his savor and A-moral A-merica is rotting at the core.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Would Jesus tell us to vote for Eeny, Meeny, or Miney? Go ahead. Follow their lead. A vote for them is a vote for WOE!
