“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.”
Americans have been taught from an early age that submission and obedience are NOT good words or behaviors.
Americans have been taught from an early age that REBELLION and REVOLT is exactly what is called for AT TIMES.
Therefore, Americans have been taught from an early age that America’s ‘founding fathers’ were brave and true–instead of run-of-the-mill rich politicians who had money on their minds.
ANY disinterested reading of the private letters and writings of the American ‘founding fathers’ CLEARLY demonstrate that they were, not only antichristians, but self-serving, rebellious ones as well.
AFTER 200+ YEARS of non-stop ‘American history’ propaganda, Americans have come to believe that those who disobeyed God’s Word and REBELLED against the civil authorities were all God-fearing Christians?!?
“let not the rebellious exalt themselves.”
God’s Word is CLEAR about how God feels about revolt and revolution and the REBELLIOUS.
“That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.”
“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin”
“For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.”
“And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day. For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.”
REBELLION is one of the behaviors the sinful practice.
HOMOSEXUALITY is another sinful behavior. Homosexuality is NOT the root problem, however: homosexuality is what one gets if one persists in sinful behavior.
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient”
To be perfectly clear, ALL Sin Is Rebellion Against God.
The rebellious demonstrate their contempt of God the Creator and the Creator’s natural order by their UNREPENTANT, sinful behaviors.
This contempt is expressed through a NUMBER of sinful behaviors.
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
God’s Word is CLEAR: the rebellious ARE sinful: the rebellious demonstrate their contempt for God, God’s Word and ALL THINGS GOD by their UNREPENTANT continuance in their sinful behaviors–particularly REBELLION.
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”
DOES the reader believe that America’s founding rebels were ‘good, Christian men’?
HAS the reader ever tried reconciling the obviously-sinful behavior of those ‘founding fathers’ with what is written in God’s Word?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 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:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
