As of today’s date (March 18, 2020) over 100 Americans have died because of the Coronavirus. In 2009 over 1,000 Americans died as a result of the Swine Flu. Both times the government became very excited and interested in what to do to control the death toll. And, rightfully so. We sorrow with all who have lost loved ones in this time of national crisis.
According to the “National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse” we find this statement: “An estimated 88,005 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.” This has been going on for multiplied years in our country. The government has done absolutely nothing in an effort to control the number of lost lives each year due to alcoholism. Why not? The truth be known, because most leaders in our nation are addicted to alcohol. We are warned that “wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging” (Prov. 20:1). Alcohol continues to mock Americans and take American lives by the thousands every year. Yet, the majority of politicians in our land couldn’t care less. What a shame.
Since the Roe vs. Wade decision of the Supreme Court in 1973, we have killed almost 62,000,000 innocent babies in our nation. The Bible reveals that life begins at the moment of conception in the mother’s womb (Jer. 1:5; Luke 1:41; 2:21). One politician stated that it “would be un-Christian to attempt to put an end to abortion on demand.” This woman has no idea what Christianity is. Willful murder in the sight of a holy God has never been right, nor had His approval. Most politicians in our land today are “pro-death” when it comes to innocent babes. When a woman enters an abortion clinic today the mother’s womb becomes the baby’s tomb. May God forgive us for our stupidity as a nation.
You may make the sin of alcoholism legal in our nation, which we have most assuredly done, but you can never, ever make it right! You may make the murder of little babes in our land legal, which we have most assuredly done, but you can never, ever make it right!
Where is the political leader who will take a stand against alcoholism? Where is the politician who will defend the right of innocent babes to have a chance for life? May God raise up such men and women while there is still time.
