A WICKED AND ADULTEROUS GENERATION LACKS GODLY LEADERS


A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. And he left them, and went away. Matt 16:4

The choices for American president are lamentable and our lack of leadership is a direct result of our wicked and adulterous culture. A culture that accepts and even promotes adultery, fornication, abortion and homosexuality as the norm cannot produce godly leaders. Instead we are left with those who disregard God's commands.

On the Democratic Ticket-- it is beyond me why a major percentage of the American electorate would be willing to re-admit the Clinton team back into the White House. And a team it would be--since Bill cannot seem to contain himself even during the primaries for the sake of getting his wife elected. So many seem willing to elect Billary even after the egregiousness of his meanderings with the opposite sex caused the Office of President of the United States to reach a new low of moral ignominy and turpitude that prompted the Senate to accuse him of ultimate corruption in public office with a decision of impeachment. The Clinton regime vetoed an attempt to halt the brutal deaths of partially born babies, hastened the destruction of morality and the family, and scandalized the Nation and the office of the President. Their thirst for power knows no bounds or limitations--especially with respect to God's commands.

Another major percentage of the electorate are literally falling over backwards to vote for rock-star Barack Obama who despite his desire to appear as a facilitator of unity and harmony is as divisive as they come for those who seek to uphold life and the traditional family. He admittedly has a natural born talent to induce praise, adulation and even stupification in that portion of the populace that seeks a new and trailblazing messiah. It seems the less this crowd knows about him though the better so that their fantasies are not challenged or dispelled.

Obama portrays himself as a uniter but he has earned 100% ratings from the following anti-life and anti-family organizations: Americans for Democratic Action, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the National Organization of Women, the NAACP and the NEA. I certainly do not feel united with the divisive promoters of feminism, abortion, racism and and anti-social public education.

In his recent book he had this to say,
"I consider decisions about sex, marriage, divorce, and childbearing to be highly personal. I don't believe we strengthen the family by bullying or coercing people into the relationships we think are best for them." (p. 223, 334-6)

If elected though he would have no problem bullying those who differ with his deviant views of marriage under threat of civil rights violations if one should fail to perform a homosexual marriage ceremony, or refuse to adopt to homosexuals, etc,. Further, we
do strengthen the family by reserving it for procreating heterosexuals and not going down the slippery slope of redefining marriage in order to assuage the feelings of those who prefer promiscuity to commitment anyway. The call for same-sex marriage is after all only an instrument to normalize sodomy and destroy traditional marriage.

And from Human Events:
To drum up support for his Senate bid in 2004, Obama wrote a letter to the Windy City Times, a publication targeted to Chicago’s gay community. “I opposed DOMA [the Defense of Marriage Act] in 1996. It should be repealed, and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor,” he vowed. “I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying” (see page 3).

Obama told the paper that constitutional marriage amendment proposals were merely “an effort to demonize people for political advantage.” At the same time, he pledged to work to “expand adoption rights” for same-sex couples.

In 2006, he followed through by voting against the Federal Marriage Amendment. “Personally, I do believe that marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said, as he voted against defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Obama has similarly hedged his pro-choice rhetoric, while consistently supporting the pro-choice cause. As a state senator in Illinois he twice voted “present” on an Illinois ban on partial-birth abortion and was “absent” on a third vote. In 2001, he voted “present” on a parental notification bill for minors and in 2002 he voted against a bill to protect babies that survived failed abortions.

In his 2004 race Senate, Obama accepted $41,750 in campaign contributions from pro-choice interest groups.


That sums up the Democratic choice that Americans have for the President of the United States.

On the Republican side, the party reached a new low of moral depravity by offering not one, but two adulterers, to the electorate for president of the United States: one of which Rudy Giuliani, has already withdrawn from the race. The other so-called conservative John McCain who has all but formally been declared the Republican candidate.

According to the U.S. Veteran Dispatch:
"When McCain returned to the United States in 1973 after more than five years as a prisoner of war, he found his first wife Carol, was a different person. Carol McCain, once a model, had been badly injured in a car wreck in 1969. The accident "left her 4 inches shorter and on crutches, and she gained a good deal of weight." Despite her injures, she had refused to allow her POW husband to be notified about her condition, fearing that such news would not be good for him while he was being held prisoner.

But, just a couple years later, McCain, while pondering a future in politics, met Cindy Hensley, an attractive 25-year-old woman from a very wealthy politically-connected Arizona family. While still married to Carol, McCain began an adulterous relationship with Cindy. He married Cindy in May 1980 -- just a month after leaving his crippled wife and securing a divorce."


Further, it was reported in another article from the Arizona Republic, dated Aug. 24, 1994, that Cindy McCain (John McCain's second wife) escaped prosecution for stealing/using drugs. "Cindy McCain, the wife of U.S. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, admitted in a series of media interviews Monday that she became addicted to the painkillers Percocet and Vicodin.

"She said that she used the drugs from 1989 to 1992 and acknowledged that she had stolen some pills from the American Voluntary Medical Team, a charitable organization of which she is president . . . at one point, McCain, 40, was ingesting 15 to 20 pills a day . . . the normal dosage for seriously ill patients is 6 to 10 a day for a short period."

McCain is the choice the American people have for the highest office supposedly from a party of conservative politics, family values, Christian orientation, and defenders of life against abortion.

The hypocrisy in both political parties has reached new levels of naked arrogance, but no less degenerate is the populace at large who see no reason why such so called luminaries of political aspiration should not be voted into the highest office of the land. The spiritual blindness of America has become as incalculable in its perversity as the candidates themselves of both parties. All of this stems from a rather casual view of purity which sees nothing wrong with bowing down before the wickedness of lust. Such moral equivalency is causing this nation to rot to its very core, and one needs only to consult the words of Holy Scripture to verify this malaise.

Purity is a divine law, based on the will of God and on the dignity of the human body. "Thou shalt not commit adultery" (Exodus 20: 14) "do not err, neither fornicators, nor adulterers, nor sodomites, nor liars with mankind...shall possess the Kingdom of God" (1Cor. 6:9)

Chastity is likewise founded on the dignity of the human body. St. Paul writes: "Know you not that you are the temple of God, and the spirit of God dwells in you? But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy, for the temple of God is holy, which you are" (1 Cor. 3: 16-17)

When Solomon spoke to God in humble prayer he obtained wisdom to rule the kingdom, and chastity to govern himself. Forgetting God, and neglecting prayer and seeking after forbidden fruit, he fell as no man before or since. The bible tells of his hundreds of concubines. Unless God builds and maintains the interior castle of purity in our souls, the exterior walls and the surrounding moat must yield to the enemy. Solomon lived peaceful, wise and happy as long as he maintained the humble spirit of dependence upon God, not only as a magnificent ideal, but also as an all-absorbing passion. Solomon could not be neutral or indifferent. He stood between two fires: supernatural possession or natural diabolical possession.

Purity is also part of the natural law--controlling and directing the sex impulse towards societal preservation and progress, as well as individual health and morality. This impulse is almost as urgent as the craving for food and drink and the instinct of self-preservation. If so strong an urge were not held in reasonable check, untold disaster and ruin would result to the individual and eventually to society. Yet isn't that where we are as a civilization?--on the brink of self destruction due to the inordinate desire to fulfill this unrestrained sexual impulse which always must remain fruitless by the use of contraceptives. The US has the world's highest divorce rate, bar none--twice as high as the next highest country (Sweden) and 50 times higher than some countries. If one removes the salutary restraint of continence, then chastity and eventually every other virtue is doomed.

This unrestrained sexual impulse has brought a plethora of lesser plagues from which no sacred social justice program contrived by the government or the churches can save us. These lesser plagues include: child pregnancy, drugs, abortion, contraception, fornication, pornography, sodomy, teenage suicide, sex-education, and dropout rates from school in epic numbers. All of this is the result of a "wicked and adulterous generation!"

America doesn't even have a fighting chance with these kinds of leaders who are unable to keep their homes intact and/or defy brazenly defy the commands of God--and call themselves "Christians". They instead bring the entire Nation down into the cesspool of moral debauchery. It was impurity in its unnatural forms that caused the flood (Gen. 6:7), the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrha (Gen. 19: 24), and the sudden slaying of 24,000 Israelites (Num. 25: 9). The preservation of civilization is dependent upon man’s purity and self-control. "O Wicked and adulterous generation!" Only a return to holy purity, repentance, and the chaste wedlock of monogamy shall save America.
