PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN: A PROCLAMATION OF SIN
Throughout its short 230+ years existence, the country known as the United States of America has specialized in turning vice into virtue. Exhibit A?
Americans teaching that pride is a much-desired quality.
“American Pride”: it’s on the airwaves; it’s taught in the schools; it’s preached from the pulpits.
In fact, this writer once heard a woman stand up in a church and declare, not that she was proud of her church group, but that she was “so stinkin’ proud!”
It was a very appropriate message for an end times apostate church.
The Bible condemns pride. “American pride” DOES NOT get a special pass from God.
What does one suppose will happen to the nation who has taught “pride” as a virtue (instead of a sin)?
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
What does one suppose will happen to the people of that nation who have been taught that pride is a virtue instead of a sin?
“Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.”
(Incidentally, Proverbs 16:5 is the only comment the Bible makes about the pagan tradition much beloved by the modern American churches of joining hands in a circle and praying.)
Proud to be an American!
“God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”
But what about the many who inhabit the churches in the World’s Most Christian Nation™?
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,”
—2 Timothy 3:1-2
Sound like anyone the reader knows?<
Speaking of last days:
“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,”
—2 Peter 3:3
Who is a scoffer?
“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man who acts with arrogant pride.”
Again, sound like anyone the reader might know?
America has become the expert at turning sin into desirable quality. Nowhere is this more evident in American attitudes toward pride. Particularly the attitude of those who sit in the pews of American churches.
“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.”
Does any of this sound familiar?
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
