The Righteous Can Spare the Nation

Last week we came across a blog by someone who's blog name is Madame Prezident. She's an African American woman who was expressing her views about the Supreme Court's decision regarding gay marriage and the response of many Black Christians and church leaders. We don't know anything about her political, social or religious views, but she made some very serious points regarding the state of the Church in America.

Here's a condensed version of what she wrote:

Genesis: 18:22
The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the Lord. 23 Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24 What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 

Genesis: 18:26
The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.” -

Genesis: 18:32
Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?” He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”

God is no liar, so God destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah because it’s evident that he couldn’t find at least ten righteous men to spare the life of the wicked...... what most Christians have failed at is “being the righteous to spare the city.”

America is not Sodom and Gomorrah because “gay marriage” has been legalized in all fifty states; it’s Sodom & Gomorrah because “Straight men” sleep with multiple women and sometimes men, all while spreading the HIV virus amongst the black community.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because a pastor wants a 65 million dollar plane instead of a school, shelter, or hospital.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because pastors sleep with the congregation.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because Christians don’t believe in abortions until it’s their underage daughter who is pregnant.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because women sleep with both men and women to satisfy their own filthy desires.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because “straight” women are killing their children.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because men like Bishop (she stated the name) dominate the Black church – pedophiles in the pulpit.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because you have the Black church, White church, Methodist, Pentecostal, and COGIC; instead of the Christian Church.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because straight women sleep with other women's husbands without conviction.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because nine Black people were gunned down during a Bible study.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because rich people refuse to help the poor.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because there are more Black men in prison than inside the home.

America is Sodom & Gomorrah because you’ve been going to church your entire life & you know the Bible like the back of your hand, but you still don’t know God.

A great percentage of Americans identifies with Christianity as their chosen religion, so if you’re reading this and you’re a Christian – please ask yourself, am I one of the fifty righteous that God can count on, to spare the destruction of America?

We read this blog in last Sunday's gathering to open our session. Then we sang a couple of songs of dedication and worship, crying out to God that we would be considered and counted as part of the righteous who can spare our nation.

How about you today? Will you take your fear focus off the gay community, the racism, and the corruption in our government, to simply bow before the Lord? 

Will you become part of the solution and healing of our nation? T

hat's what we're doing. That's the direction we have taken.
