A New Low!

Most of you know I don’t do much politicking. In fact, I abhor politics like some abhor root canals, prostate exams, or five o’clock traffic.

Even though I am currently in Romania, I do keep abreast of what is happening in the grand ole’ US of A, and this past weekend I read that the executive branch is actively working toward coercing the judicial branch of government, calling upon it to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act.

As I read this the only image to come to my mind was that of a man in the middle of the ocean clinging to a giant boulder even though it was gradually dragging him to the bottom of the deep. Somewhere in his mind the man must have known he ought to have let go of the boulder, but his need for self-preservation was overridden by his absolute desire to cling to the boulder at any cost.

We are a nation adrift in the middle of the ocean, clinging to a boulder and refusing to let go of it, even though we’re so far down beneath the surface of the waters the sun is barely a pinprick anymore.

Whether it is God hardening the hearts of men, or men becoming hardened in and of themselves, history teaches us that once a nation, a people, or an empire began the downward descent into the deep it never did let go of what was dragging it down.

It is a diabolical thing to behold what is currently happening in this nation. Upon realizing they could not turn enough towards evil and perversion, they chose to legislate evil and perversion and call it normal. Now, anyone daring to stand for truth, anyone daring to point out the utter disconnect between the will of the people and what our elected officials are doing, is berated and marginalized by a complicit media complex in thrall to the ruling system.

Throughout all these machinations, legislations, amendments and newly enacted laws, the church has been silent, as though distracted by some shiny thing out in the desert, or by the promise of a hundred fold return for their generous offering to the grinning face on television.

As far as the grinning faces are concerned, it is against their self-interest to sound the alarm or point out the reality of what is happening, because they like to have a pacified and placated audience who does not stir but for to write a check.

Evidently, the only way to get a rise out of a preacher today is by threatening to take away their tax exempt status, or to have congressional hearings forcing them to disclose their yearly income. It’s all about them, their selfish needs, and their selfish desires. Just a bunch of pimps offering services at reasonable rates, and as long as they get theirs they are indifferent toward anything else that might be going on.

The handful whose voices are becoming shrill from yelling ‘wake up’ realize that left unchecked, sooner than anyone realizes, it will be a crime punishable by law to stand for righteousness, and call sin, sin.

The enemy we face is playing for keeps, and he is not interested in a truce or an armistice. Especially when he feels as though he has gained ground, has the momentum, and has enough men and women in high office willing to do his bidding.

We are but fools if we think the enemy will let us be if we let him be. We are but fools if we think keeping silent will keep the enemy from getting around to us. It is not the silencing of righteousness, nor is it the crippling of righteousness the enemy is interested in. It is the extermination of righteousness. This is what we must understand in order to rightly contextualize what is presently occurring in America.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

It is better to stand on the boulder than to let it drag you to the bottom. Who cares what the dopes who go down with the ship say when your head is still above the water?

All you have to do is speak up and the devil fleas. Resist evil and it will depart from you. People are too interested in getting along at any cost and seeming popular though they have no mind of their own. That is why the ocuntry is a mess, not cause fools get their way.

Lot would sacrifice his own daughters to keep the homos from raping his guests. How many people care that much? People say that the men just wanted to get to know the angels and not really rape them. I don't think you do that by pounding in the door.

Homos are very violent and out of control. It is the sin that leads fastest to depravity and moral decline. These are the times we live in. Yet God sent protection for the righteous for Lot also.

Amen Brother Mike. Keep preaching it. The U.S. is becoming more like Sodom and Gomorrah.

I know I am not asleep but I cannot get over the sensation that I'm in the middle of a nightmare and I cannot wake up. Every day the news is worse and worse. The headlines scream out unspeakable evil. There is no relief, except in fervent prayer, drawing closer and closer to Him.

What has been set in motion cannot be stopped. Let us put on the full armor of Christ and having done all, stand. I’d rather lose my life speaking out for Christ than save my life by remaining silent. Eternity is a very long time.

Might I ask your thoughts on a question that has plagued me for years? Wheat and tares. Those that belong to God and those that don't. Those referred to by Jesus as having satan as their father. Sociopaths. Tares were planted in the field by the owner's enemy. Sociopaths supposedly are born without a conscience.... not that they have repeatedly ignored their conscience until it is seared and silent, but who never had one to begin with. At least that is what psychology says. Is such a thing possible, that some people simply have no conscience, that are NOT just normal human beings created by God who have refused Him - but some other kind of being that was planted here by the enemy, like the tares???

Amen and Hallelujah! As Pastor Duduman said, God is punishing and judging America for sin in the church. Wicked churches have produced wicked Christians who refuse to stand against or speak against evil. If we will not repent and stand up and call upon our Lord Jesus Christ, and do what He would have us do to oppose evil, we deserve to be rolled over. Thank you Michael for continuing to sound the alarm. It is indeed time to wake up.

Anon, I don't think that anyone is born without a concience. I think all babies have a poor sense of right and wrong and develop it as they get older. Environment and parenting play a role. This is how whole societies become sociopathic, when the group decides on the wrong set of values, as in Nazi Germany or in Sharia law.

Some people are more sensitive than others and go out of their way more to be moral, while others get so hurt that they rebel against the world. Some people just go with the flow. It is by the grace of God that anyone knows right from wrong. The more you practice one or the other, the further in that direction you go.
