Faith in God deteriorating; hurting the universe
8 Jan 2021
I propose that many of the problems in today's society may have more to do with the deteriorating Faith in God at the individual level than due to any other factor.
I’m saying that our individual Faith can affect the environment (global warming, massive storms, fires, plagues), the pandemic, and…politics.
There are so many people to blame when it comes to politics. It’s the Presidents fault. It’s the Republicans fault. It’s the Senate. It’s the House. No, it’s the Democrats. It’s the white supremacist. It’s the biased media. It’s the protestors. It’s Communist intrusion. It’s the big money companies. It’s the top one percent in the world making all the decisions. It’s somebody’s fault. It is.
But it isn’t my fault.
But what if it is?
It’s easy to blame larger problems and issues on poor decisions made at some higher or unilateral level. But those issues filter down to our level, and then we all suffer. But, what if those larger problems are amplified by our individual lack of Faith in God? What if every little immoral thought or decision we make in a day or in a week add up, then join together with your neighbors, and it snowballs until it gets bigger and bigger. Hmmm.
I’m not talking about the problem itself. I am talking about the energy created by hundreds of thousands of millions of small sins that accumulate into one big ball of evil energy. Am I going nuts? Stay with me here…
In a 2019 Global attitudes survey of 34 countries, only 45 percent of those surveyed believed that God was a necessary part of morality; only 44% in the US. That is a 14% drop in Faith in God since 2002, 9% drop just since 2016. Of those, only 24% from the liberal left thought God was necessary, while 63% of conservatives believed God was necessary.
YIKES! How do you measure morality without God at the top of the measuring stick?
There were several reasons identified in the articles I read as to why Faith in God has and continues to deteriorate around the world. But not a one of them was allocated to the presence of evil, or the fact that having a strong Faith 'in God' keeps evil out of your life.
It's a hard pill to swallow to think that we cannot make good decisions for ourselves, without God in our lives, and Jesus Christ as our Savior. But I am saying it is true. Evil sneaks its way into many decisions that we make without us knowing it. Then, this evil energy spreads like a pandemic, and not only through physical electronic media like Face book, Twitter and the news, but the energy travels through the air like floating spores with tiny antennas emitting the bad energy in waves to all the minds (atoms) in the universe.
This lack of Faith in God has reduced the seriousness of sin. It has diluted our moral compass concerning good vs. evil. Many believe good morals means only one thing: Be nice to others, and they (should) be nice to you. And that is their compass for making it through life. Honorable? Absolutely! Love your neighbor as yourself. It's a commandment. As a matter of Biblical fact, it was very important to Jesus; that commandment coming in only second to: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength (Mark 12:28-31).
What I am saying is: Being nice is not enough. It is not resolute enough to guide yourself through this life based on that principle alone.
Fallacy: If I'm being nice, and my other actions and behaviors are not hurting anyone, it should be no big deal. Examples: If I watch porn...If I steal something small...If I eye up my neighbor's wife with lust but don't act on it...If I use the Lord's name in vain...If I judge others...If I lie...If I get really angry at the long stoplight…
Yes it is. Because they are sins, and where sin lives, so does the evil one, and if the evil one has a cord attached to you, he is blinding you with his darkness and he has an effect on every thought and action you have.
God is the Light. He rids of that darkness, and clears your mind. He makes righteous your decisions and actions when you seek Him out.
And when that darkness is gone, only then do your thoughts and decisions originate out of the LIGHT. And that Light energy will be emitted into the world!
They grope in darkness with no light; he makes them stagger like drunkards (Job 12:25); Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you (James 1:21)
To conclude: With Christ as our Savior, we can provide a more positive light energy to those around us and potentially to the entire universe.
We are either with Christ or we are with satan. Keeping in mind that it is God's will that we all go to Heaven.
You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demon's, too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord's Table and the table of demons (1 Corinthians 10:21).
God bless and have mercy on us all!
Note 1: Every sin mentioned is a sin, I, myself, have committed and have since confessed to God and repented.
Note 2: This is an opinion piece and by no means am I pointing the finger at anyone. This topic has been broached by other authors, and I really wanted to try my hand at understanding it myself.
Note 3: The date published, 8 Jan 2021 has special meaning to me: (8+1 (for Jan) + 2 + 2 + 1 = 14! My meditation number for the Heavens.
