Lesson: Wisdom-politics!! Pt. 3

Main Scriptures

Prv 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Today, there is a crisis in this country, due to the direction its leaders are taking it. These leaders, are the politicians that all of us that vote, have installed to guide us down the path to the future. Hopefully, that future, is one where every citizen, no matter what race, color or creed, male or female, young or old, will have the type of life, that is one of achieving the 'American dream.' And what is that dream?? Life, liberty and Happiness. To be all that they can be.

However, if we take a serious look at that goal, we see it is slipping farther, and farther away.

People are losing sight of that goal, as they have lost jobs, houses, cars, money and many other things that, a few decades ago, were luxuries, that only those that were successful enjoyed.

Having more than one TV, was a sign of success, let alone having more than one car. Owning a house, was a pipe dream, at best, and if you did, it was in some run down part of the city. If you wanted to live outside of the slums, you usually had to rent.

Then, things got better. Success, became defined as the amout of 'things' a person owned, the size of their bank account[s], and such. As time went on, we seemed to be rolling right along, heading toward that promise.

Now, it is a totally different story. Bank accounts have been depleted, things, have been repossessed, sold off, or have been used to get a loan.

Is there an explanation as to why this is happining?? Of course there is. In fact, there are a plethora of explanations out there to choose from, but, only ONE, is the right one, and that is, the One, we will examine, in this lesson.

It is the last place any person, outside of the Spirit filled Christian would look, but is the first place, the carnal minded person needs to look, and that is the Word of God. For it is the Word of God, that not only sets the stage for our success, or our failures. And the word of God lets us know, that leaders play an important part, as to which of the two[success or failure] we will experience. And since, in this country, we choose those leaders, our success, or failure, is of our own making.

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Straight path, and the crooked path, to the American dream, is relative. It is based on, just what the person's view of the American dream is, and how to go about achieving it. If you have a negative view of that dream, like some countries who hate seeing people free to enjoy life, liberty, and happiness, the quickest way to attain that goal, is, a straight line. By the same token, if you have a positive view of that dream, then, the quickest way to it, is the straight line.

Going any other way, than a straight line, means it will take longer to get there, if you get there at all.

When we, as a nation, face problems, we look to those that are in control, for direction in solving the problem, and getting us back on the path to the 'American Dream.' After all, that is what we put them there for. They are the ones we gave the power to, to do what is necessary, to solve the problems that all of us face on a local, state, or national level.

Usually when we choose someone for this position, whether it is a position on the local, state, or national level, we do it because they tell us, how they want to solve the problem, and we agree with them and the solution they put forth, so we elect them. This means, we put our stamp of approval on their plan. We are saying, 'If I had that position, I would do the exact same thing.' That is 'two walking together, that are agreed.'

It is absolute foolishness, to select someone for that position, if, the solution they say they intend to implement, is something you don't agree with, because what you have done, is go against your principles.

If you vote for someone, you are telling everyone, where your principles lie. More importantly, you are telling God, where your principles lie!!'

By this last statement, I have just done something that most Christians never have given thought to, and that is, What does God think about this person, and the plan they propose to use to get us out of this mess?

John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
