It is no secret that American Society today has become the complete opposite of what it was in the 1950’s, and a much different Country than that of my childhood in the Eighties. As I’ve written before, I believe it has been a purposeful transformation by Godless men and women in positions of power over the decades, and vastly accelerated by the sitting president. Like sheep, Americans have been programmed through the mainstream media and through a liberal education system to embrace cultural change and new societal norms. Sadly, many Christians have fallen prey to the constant brainwashing, or because of becoming targets of hateful persecution, they have simply surrendered. What God called SIN in the 1950’s, He STILL calls sin in 2016. God hasn’t changed from the beginning. His Word hasn’t changed. Christianity hasn’t changed. CHRISTIANS have changed WITH society, as opposed to changing the society, which is what we should be doing. I’m writing this article, not as a “How-To” guide to change the culture back to what it once was, but rather to inspire and encourage Holy Bible believers to KEEP our culture alive in the midst of a perverted, unGodly, and Biblically-hostile society.
If we as Christians and Jews stay faithful to our Biblical beliefs and Values, while the rest of the Nation seeks to eliminate them from our society, then maybe someday we will spur Revival. Right now, more than anything, we need to focus on a Revival amongst believers before we can ever expect a national return to God. A majority of Americans say that they believe in the God of the Holy Bible, but the direction this Country has been heading does not mirror that fact. Christian and Jewish leaders need to first stop watering down what the Word of God says in order to appeal more to unbelievers. What good is making a new convert if they do not believe core doctrines of the Faith? There are many “unconverted converts” in Christianity today, and that is why the Christian influence on America as a whole does not jive with a majority of the nation being professing believers.
Right now, it looks as if liberal Democrat, Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States, but I desperately pray that I’m wrong. She will continue Barack Hussein Obama’s radical transformation of America, increase muslim immigration by over 500%, pass laws that encourage and increase abortions, further the radical LGBT agenda, and appoint Supreme Court justices (activists) who would threaten the rights of Christians and Jews to live our beliefs. That is why I’m saying we should not be focused on saving America anymore, but instead focus on saving souls. Even if Donald Trump were to win this November, the Country would most likely not change for the better. Yes, it would be much worse under Hillary, but until the SOULS of Americans are saved, no one man can save America or make it “great again”. We believers must make GOD GREAT in America AGAIN! That begins with us, and carries on through the souls we reach.
The hearts of the American people need to change, not a President. It’s the PEOPLE who elected Barack Obama, and it’s the PEOPLE who are currently favoring a Godless Democrat Platform through Hillary Clinton. Until the people themselves return to God, the nation will remain a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah. America is truly a latter day BABYLON. It is heartbreaking to see how truly far this nation has strayed from God over the last half century alone. I’ve referenced the 1950’s because I believe that was the last true God-fearing decade in American history. Most likely, barring the Revival of “the people” NOW, the USA of old will be completely unrecognizable in the very near future. In the next 20-25 years, the Baby Boomer generation, which is predominantly Christian, traditional and conservative will be completely replaced by a younger liberal population. So, if you think America is abominable now, just wait…
A 1996 Gallup poll on Gay Marriage found only 27% in favor and 68% opposed. 10 years later, we see Gay Marriage legalized with the poll numbers nearly flipped. On same-sex couples raising children, a 2007 Pew survey found that 50% of Americans said Gay and Lesbian couples raising children was bad for society. By 2010, that number dropped to 43%. I haven’t seen the most recent polls, but I’m guessing that in the past 6 years the percentage has gone down and not up. The moralistic Holy Bible believing Baby Boomers are disappearing.
A 2013 Pew Research Center survey found 52% supported legalization of marijuana and 45% opposed. A 1969 Gallup survey found just 12% favored legalization and 84% opposed. Also, less than 20% of Americans over age 55 consider pornography to be “morally acceptable”, while over 50% of 18-34 year-olds do. That explains why nearly 20% of all women in the United States say that they have been raped at some point in their lives, and why 1 out of every 4 girls will be sexually abused before they become adults. Things were far better and very much different back in the 50’s. Here’s a comparison:
The 1950s were known as the “Golden Age” of America. The Country was abundantly blessed in every aspect, and I believe faithfulness and reverence toward God and HIS Laws was the reason. A series of three decisions in the 1960’s, by the U.S. Supreme Court, began America’s downward spiral. It was in those landmark decisions that the Holy Bible and prayer were removed from public schools.
In 1950, while the Holy Bible was still allowed in schools, the major disciplinary problems were gum chewing and talking in class. In 2016, many of the nation’s public schools are equipped with metal detectors because violence has become so bad. Today’s youth, while not allowed to pray to our God or mention Jesus in schools anymore, are instead being taught to recite Islamic prayers and Muslim declarations of faith, make Islamic prayer rugs, and practice Islamic rituals. While, as the ACLJ points out in their many cases fighting Islamic indoctrination in Public Schools, Christian children are being harassed, flunked, suspended or even expelled for bringing Holy Bibles to school, for praying, or for simply mentioning God, Jesus or CHRISTmas.
This is all so diametrically opposed to what our forefathers had envisioned for this Nation, as America’s very FIRST Schoolbook was the HOLY BIBLE. We are undoubtedly living in an age where MOST major colleges are infested with Atheistic, Agnostic, far-Left Liberal “thinker” Professors who don’t just question God, but ATTACK Him, MOCK the Holy Bible, and alienate or publicly disgrace ANY students who disagree and hold strong belief in our God.
In the 1950s, most U.S. States criminalized same sex relations. In 2016, under Barack Hussein Obama, we Christians are criminalized for speaking out against same sex relationships. After Gay Marriage was legalized last year, Christians have been branded bigots, crazies, haters and many unmentionable vile names simply for standing firm in our Faith and on the Word of God. We have been under constant attack by this current AntiChrist government. Christian churches, charities, businesses and even STATES have been taken to COURT by the Obama Administration for refusing to violate their beliefs in order to comply with his unGodly laws. Christians or Jews who have opposed Gay Marriage and Abortion mandates have lost their jobs, lost businesses, been fined, and some like Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis have been thrown into PRISON. Jesus prophesied that this would befall us Christians in the Last Days. He said we would be HATED by society, and Obama has done all that he possibly can to aid this prophecy fulfillment.
In the 1950’s female virginity was prized, and about 70 percent of all American adults were married. Today, virginity among young women is shunned, and under 50 percent of adults are married. In 1950, the median age at marriage was 22 for men and 20 for women. Today, the median age at marriage is around 30 for men and over 25 for women. It’s also important to note along with these statistics, that in the ’50s pornography was ILLEGAL. In 2016, all you need is a smartphone and you have access to any and all pornographic material under the sun. Keep that in mind PARENTS!
In the 1950’s, young men had role models like John Wayne, who dominated movie screens. He was Godly, tough, courageous, and always fought for what was morally right. In 2016, the most popular movies are filled with gory violence, crime, sex, and vulgarity. The line between right and wrong is not drawn in today’s films, unlike the white and black hat, good guy vs. bad guy distinctions in the movies of old. On television, in the ’50s, every show presented ethical or moral challenges to one of the main characters. There was always a valuable lesson to be learned, and “right and wrong” was clearly defined.
Today’s TV shows blatantly promote adultery, premarital sex, drug and alcohol use, extreme violence, rebellion, disobedience, disrespect of the law, blasphemy toward God, and many other detrimental concepts. So-called “Family friendly” networks have promoted what our Holy Bibles call “abominable sin”. The Disney Channel incorporated openly gay characters and couples into their popular teenage shows, and ABC Family aired the first ever televised kiss between two underage boys. America’s youth are being subjected to more sex, violence and profane language during the traditional early-evening “family hour” of broadcast television viewing than EVER before, a U.S. watchdog group found. Recent studies have also found that between the years of 2001 and 2007 alone sexual content rose 25%, meaning between 2008 and today, it most likely rose much more. To no surprise, 20% of Americans say that television has directly contributed to their increasing support for Gay Marriage.
While the 1950’s birthed American Rock ‘n’ Roll music, the genre was not what we think of it as today. Elvis and Johnny Cash pushed the envelope for their time, but gyrating of the hips was the biggest complaint amongst their critics. Today, musicians have given a whole new meaning to the term “pushing the envelope”. There is no envelope anymore. Music videos today border on pornographic and demonic, while the lyrics are beyond vulgar and openly anti-GOD.
Now one huge difference between 1950’s America and today, is the presence of Islam. It was rightfully non-existent in a Judeo-Christian culture. Yet due to his immense love for Islam, president Obama has done everything that he can to islamize America. (For more detailed information, read my article entitled “America’s FIRST Islamic President”). 99% of the middle east refugees admitted thus far have been MUSLIM, while only 1% have been our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters. While Islam dominates the Middle East, with the exception of the tiny Jewish State of Israel, the Christians have been exiled and murdered through a genocide by ISIS and other Muslim terrorist groups. Yet, Obama somehow believes that the Muslims need refuge in America moreso than our outnumbered and persecuted Christian brothers and sisters do.
There is no other race or people in the history of the world, besides the Nazis, that hate Jews and Israel more than the muslims. Obama is bringing them to America in record numbers. He has truly been, by far, the MOST hostile president toward Israel EVER. For all of the reasons why, and there are 8 years worth of reasons, read my article “The MOST Anti-Israel President of ALL-TIME”. Obama is a far cry from our Presidents of old, especially those in the ’50s, regarding treatment of Israel. President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “Our forces saved the remnant of the Jewish people of Europe for a new life and a new hope in the Reborn Land of Israel. Along with all men of good will, I salute the young state and wish it well.”
In the 1950’s, our Holy Book was embraced and placed in the highest esteem amongst virtually all Americans. In 2016, the Holy Bible has being dubbed by many as “outdated”, and as a Book that needs to be “revised”. Many Americans say that God needs to “evolve” into the 21st Century. Yet God is the SAME yesterday, today and FOREVER, and sadly most Christians today have forgotten that vital Truth. They are believing Satan’s lie, which says: If a majority of this generation believes GOD is “wrong” on any issue, then He must CHANGE His Way of thinking to adapt to US, rather than us having to adapt to HIM. That attitude is the reason why this generation of America is so cursed, while the ’50s era was so blessed.
I really wish that America would return to the ways, morals and values of the 1950’s, but sadly I don’t foresee that happening. So, what are we Christians and God-fearing Jews to do in a society laden with sin? Which grows worse and more abominable by the day?? The answer is simple… DON’T CHANGE. We must never let an ever-changing society change US. We must instead become the true catalysts for change. We must stand firm on our Biblical beliefs, proudly display and show our values to all, keep conservative tradition alive, and live our lives how GOD tells us to, NOT how the government compels us to. While we may not have the power to stop or reverse all of the unGodly actions by Obama, Hillary or the masses, we CAN keep that garbage out of OUR lives. This is my message to all of my brothers and sisters who are feeling so distraught, helpless, and disgusted with the direction of this society and nation ~
Concentrate all of your time and effort on making YOUR life, YOUR family, YOUR home, YOUR habits, YOUR hobbies, YOUR children’s education, YOUR work, YOUR speech, and YOUR worldview as Biblically inspired as you possibly can! If our American society wants to turn from God, test Him, and welcome His judgment through their constant rebellion, we must let them know that WE aren’t going along for the ride! God has given a command to us, for when we find ourselves entrenched in a Godless society, and it’s my advice for every God-fearing American today: “COME OUT from among them, and be you SEPARATE, saith The LORD”. (2nd Corinthians 6:17)
“BLESSED is the Nation whose God is THE LORD…” ~ Psalm 33:12
“Righteousness exalts a Nation: but SIN is a reproach to any PEOPLE.” ~ Proverbs 14:34
“.. ALL the nations that FORGET God shall be turned into HELL.” ~ Psalm 9:17
“They MOCKED the messengers OF GOD, and despised HIS Words, and misused HIS prophets, until the WRATH of The LORD arose against them, till there was NO REMEDY.” ~ 2nd Chronicles 36:16
“Babylon the great (America) is fallen, IS FALLEN, and is become the habitation of DEMONS, and the hold of every FOUL spirit, and a cage of every unclean and HATEFUL bird.” ~ Revelation 18:2
“FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH, lay hold on Eternal Life, whereunto you are also CALLED, and have professed a GOOD profession before MANY WITNESSES.” ~ 1st Timothy 6:12
“And be NOT CONFORMED to this world: but be you transformed by the RENEWING of your mind, that you may prove what is that GOOD, and acceptable, and perfect, will of GOD.” ~ Romans 12:2
Agree with your commentary here Michael; we truly ARE modern day Babylon! Come QUICKLY LORD JESUS CHRIST our SAVIOR and LORD!
