A judgement is falling on former Christian nations.
It has come in the form of loss of freedoms and serves as a warning of worse to come if those nations don’t return to their Christian roots. A nation’s level of freedom reflects that nation’s godliness. Considering the current state of the world, it’s no wonder there are now few if any nations that we can honestly call free.
Canada, for example, is in the grips of near civil war for the first time in its history, but also for the first time in its history, only a minority of Canadians identify as Christian, while the majority voice their support for the mass murder of their fellow Canadians through abortion and euthanasia. Abortion has been legal in Canada for some time, and euthanasia was legalized in 2016. What’s changed over the past few years is the majority’s vocal support for these abominations. Murder-on-demand (i.e., abortion and euthanasia) has also become progressively easier to access as a free “healthcare service”.
Do you think a nation in which the vast majority of the population supports the mass murder of its most vulnerable deserves the same degree of freedom as a nation that deplores the mass murder of its people? Because I don’t in any way believe that an ungodly nation – which is what Canada has become in more ways than can be mentioned here – I don’t believe that an ungodly nation deserves the same degree of freedom as a godly one.
Like all formerly Christian nations, Canada has become a stronghold of the ungodly and is now reaping the rewards of that ungodliness through loss of freedoms, as well as through a crumbling economy, out-of-control immigration, appalling political leadership, and a state of near civil war. All formerly Christian nations are more or less in the same broken condition.
A nation where the majority has outright rejected God and his Messiah deserves very little freedom, and that appears to be what Canada has brought on itself. A nation’s leadership isn’t imposed on a people; a nation’s leadership is earned. So if the people of Canada are unhappy with their leaders, they have only themselves to blame.
I believe that scripture backs me up when I say that such a judgement has been seen before by those who strayed too far from God’s laws. The children of Israel also suffered the same warning judgments a few times in their history before God permanently cut them off. Christians are not yet at the point of being permanently cut off, but they’re definitely nearing it. They’re more at the stage where they’re about to be marched off to spiritual Babylon while their nation is plundered and destroyed.
I am not against a people’s cry for freedom – that cry rings loud and clear in my own heart – but freedom can’t reign where sin runs rampant, and sin is running rampant in former Christian nations. The only way out of this devolving situation is for the majority of the population to turn back to God, but I don’t see that happening any time soon, if ever. This is a dismal prognosis and an honest one.
The sole remedy is for the few remaining Christians to separate themselves, if not physically then at least spiritually, from those nations so that they don’t share in the judgement that is coming on all Christendom.
