A Christian writer over at News In Faith asks, and then answers the question, "why did God allow Obama to be re-elected?"
Read it all HEREMost conservatives have been scratching their heads over this question since the November elections. Christians have wondered why God would allow such a traitorous and tyrannical administration to continue. I, myself, have put a lot of thought into this and asked “why” so many times. Here are some of the answers I have come up with.
When one looks at history we can see how God has turned rebellious nations and people over to the enemy to chastise. In the Old Testament we see how after Israel rebelled against God and began worshipping false gods they were captured by the Babylonians. There are many examples like this in the Bible.
Now in America we see Christians being persecuted through various means. Christian businesses are forced to either go against their consciences to buy insurance that pays for abortificants or be fined. So they face either complying with evil or risk their businesses. Recently we have discovered the IRS has targeted Christian, Jewish, and conservative groups and businesses to either audit them or make it extremely difficult for them to apply for or receive 501C tax exempt forms. It has resulted in many of them being unable to raise enough money to help Conservative candidates run effective campaigns. Many believe this may have been the reason for our losses in the 2012 elections. Whether this is the case or not, it isn’t difficult to see that we have been in a huge battle for our nation. So what am I saying here?
Sometimes God allows things to get so bad that people start to seek the truth. Would they have discovered it had Romney been elected and the Republicans taken over the Senate? I sincerely doubt it and this is why I say that. If you put a frog in cold water and gradually turn up the heat it will cook to death. I believe this is what has been happening all along even when the Republicans controlled the White House and Congress. Did they solve the problems we faced back then? I have to say a resounding “NO” to that question. The only difference is that things didn’t digress as rapidly then. This is why I believe God is working in a way that will cause people to wake up and see that the government isn’t the answer to their problems. He wants them to see that He is the only solution to everything.
Because of people’s blindness, God did the only thing He could to wake people up. He allowed Obama to get re-elected. He knew that this administration’s radical attempts to change the nation would begin to shock people. You see, people’s basic desires, whether conservative or liberal, is to maintain their liberties. The way it was before nobody even noticed that they were losing their freedoms because it was so gradual. Then suddenly things began to happen. People began to see huge hikes in their health insurance because of Obamacare. The Catholic Church and Christian businesses were being threatened with massive fines if they didn’t buy health insurance that paid for abortificants. They saw people being harassed and threatened by the IRS. Even liberals hate threats to liberty even when it is happening to conservatives. There is an intrinsic built-in mechanism in every person’s nature that causes them to feel intimidated when they see people’s freedoms being taken away. They begin to fear that they will be next. This is why we are seeing these three things starting to take place today.
I found this article via the TEA Party Community.
Just think about all of the places (public schools, most colleges and universities, public buildings, media, government, military etc.) where progressive/socialist/communist radicals achieved kicking God out of the culture. Next, add in the liberal apostate churches that kicked Jesus (and Him crucified as the Gospel truth) out of their messages and replaced it with moral relativism that advocates abortion and homosexuality as "normal, natural and desirable"; and we shall realize just how easy it was for them to eliminate Him and His absolute truth, wisdom, knowledge, morals, and values; thus taking out the grace and mercy for salvation through Jesus Christ from the public square.
Of course, that is what they THINK they have done. God is still in control! However in this life, we reap what we sow.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.
Jesus wins in the end!
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will[fn] have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
And so do the faithful!
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our[fn] faith.
