Nations play an important role in God’s redemptive purposes as He uses them to draw people to Himself. When embraced by the culture, some sins make it nearly impossible to fulfill God’s national purposes. Left unaddressed, these sins will eventually provoke God to judgment. Corruption is one of these sins, making it something we must be capable of identifying and rejecting if we want our nation to experience God’s blessing and protection.

“I listened in stunned silence as Nikole Hannah-Jones, a reporter for the New York Times, repeated an idea that I had vigorously argued against with her fact-checker” … What does it mean for our country when our national paper of record is repeatedly rewarded with our nation’s highest journalism prize for deliberately distorted, misleading, and false reporting?

What Is God Trying to Accomplish Through Impeachment?
Before we become overly cynical regarding the drama unfolding in Washington D.C., perhaps we should ask the Lord whether there is a reason for our leadership’s apparent lack of wisdom and failure to provide justice and meaningful solutions to the mistakes uncovered.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Story Reminds Us That True Justice Cannot Be Averted
Mystery shrouds both the life and death of Jeffrey Epstein. In life “he lied about the identities of his clients, his wealth, his financial prowess, his personal achievements.” In death, questions and conspiracy theories abound. Did Epstein commit suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell, or was he murdered by strangulation to keep him from talking to the authorities about the elicit behavior of some of the world’s most powerful and influential personalities?

Proof Our Nation Is Desperately Sick
Pedophiles, infanticide, real and fake hate-crimes, voter fraud, corruption, violence, sexual abuse within the church, promiscuity, mass shootings, anti-Semitism, government gridlock, incentivizing criminality, and more dominated our nation’s news cycle over the course of little more than one week.

Are Border Walls Immoral?
Congress is not a place known for its moral convictions, yet in this new year, our new Speaker of the House has taken upon herself the mantle of preaching morality. According to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and some of her colleagues, we cannot end what has become nearly the longest government shutdown in history by providing partial funding for a national border wall because our nation’s values and morality are at stake….
What Did We Learn from Kavanaugh vs. Ford?
Far too often we find ourselves whipped into a national frenzy because of some narrative dominating the news cycle, only to set it aside weeks later and nearly forget about it. Whether it be the separation of families at the border, the opioid epidemic, net neutrality, tensions with North Korea, voter fraud, or any number of other examples, it seems as if there is always some new “national crisis” that demands our full attention, prompting us to forget about the previous emergency. And since one crisis is immediately followed by another, we never seem to stop and process what we should have learned through these nationally shared experiences…

Is Trump Protecting Us from National Judgment? (Part 1)
Sometimes, as Christians, it is easy to become cynical and to become so focused upon our national faults that we fail to recognize what may be the Lord’s hand at work. In the days leading up to the 2016 election, Lance Wallnau argued in his book God’s Chaos Candidate that a President Donald Trump may surprise Christians. Despite his prior moral failings and his arrogant persona, God may use President Trump to protect and empower Christians through a time of great difficulty as they guide our nation back to its Christian heritage.
