I just recently returned from 1 week in Italy and Switzerland. My sister planned a trip to Europe and twisted my arm to go. Ok, it didn’t take a lot of arm twisting. My trip began in Rome. They say when your in Rome, to do as the Romans. Well it turned out that there was a big football/soccer game between intracity rivals Roma and Lazio. The game was held at the great Olympic Stadium. The staium is ringed by giant statues of ancient Roman athletes. The game was quite the spectacle with it ruckus fans, with their flags, banners, song, cheers. smoke and even fire.

False doctrine carries grave consequences. Glenn Beck recently discussed the 4 Pillars of American Exceptionalism. There is much about American history that is not at all exceptional and downright deplorable. But apart from our terrible mistakes, the 4 things that made America special came from our: 1. Families/Marriages, 2. Religiosity, 3. Industry/Innovation, 4. Honesty. As family, faith, and virtue erode away, so will this nation. A return to virtue is the only thing that will make America great again.
The failure of America comes down to the failure of America’s religions. Pure religion according to James is about welfare and virtue (James 1:27). Today, religion has turned more into Sunday Morning entertainment. Government has ursurped the Church’s business/duty of providing individual welfare and many religion’s grace-focused doctrine doesn’t speak enough about repentance, or obedience. But Paul had no problem preaching repentance and obedience.
1 Cor 5:11-13 if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
2 Tim 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these (iniquity), he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
