Confusing God and Government

Abagond

Jesus wept. They say it is the shortest verse in the Bible. Anyone who has memorized Bible verses knows it and knows what it is about – the death of Lazarus.

But there is another time Jesus wept: when he entered Jerusalem on the Sunday before he died on the cross. His followers were shouting with joy – but he was crying!

They said he was the King that comes in the name of the Lord. They thought he would soon overthrow the Roman oppressors.

They misunderstood him – because their hatred for Rome blinded them, blinding them to the things that make for peace. He saw that violence would beget violence, round and round till Rome destroyed Jerusalem. So Jesus wept.

They were confusing God and government.

Al Qaedadoes that too. We see it clearly when they kill people in the name of God.

Yet we Americans cannot see…

  1. I saw this post on Abagond. I was feeling some kind of way about this post. I know America is guilty of alot of things. It is complicit in stealing and slaughtering the Native Americans. It is gulity of kidnapping black people from the Motherland Africa, Bringing us here in chains. The so called founding fathers who wrote theConstitution and Declaration of Independence did’nt have black people figured into the equation. Because we were not considered to be but a fraction a human being. They classified us as animals. With all of that being said. I felt some kind of way about the part of the post that said something about God damning America. I’ve got a problem with that. Abagond has a right to his opinion. I even understand where he was coming from. But as a believer in Jesus Christ I don’t want God damning our country.2 Chronicles 7:14 sums it up well.”If my people,who are called by my name,will humble rhemselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their ways, then I will hear from heaven, andI will forgive their sin and will heal their land. If we collectively did this as a body of believers we could usher God’s healing of our country. I don’t want God damning us. That’s just how I feel about this.

  2. *America is gulity in stealing from the Native Americans and slaughtering them And on our currency. “In God We Trust”. American was founded by so callled God fearing hypocrits, And yet we still sing God Bless America. I want God to bless our nation. And we need to pray for our President. But our nation is guilty of many transgressions.

    • I see where he is coming from and where you are coming from. I don’t want God to damn America but unfortunately we cannot deny that the country is either babylon or the love child of sodom and gomorrah. America has moved away from God while singing for his praises. Even though God loved Judah and Israel, he did punish them for their ways.
