If you want to know why America is so corrupt, look to the fathers, husbands, and men of the nation. Their leadership (or lack thereof) is what drives forth the spiritual character of a nation. When they become corrupt, it shows in the family, in the congregation, in the schools, in the government, in general society, and in the nation. When they wink at sin instead of running it out of town, sin begins to gain a foothold in a town. When they participate in the sins, the town becomes corrupt. When they allow wickedness to take place in their families, their congregations, their schools, their government, and in general society such as the theaters, concerts, and other aspects of life, then the byproduct (some might say ‘punishment’) is a corrupt government, crime, economic turmoil, and hardships.
That’s when the “blame game” starts. Men love to blame the rich, a certain political party, their local minister, the school principal, or their own wife for all the failures, but they should be looking in the mirror and pointing that finger right at themselves. The divorce and adultery rate is astounding for this nation and the people claiming to be religious are just as bad. In fact, the Baptists are some of the worse, and their doctrine is one of the most pure. What does this tell us? It’s about having more than the proper creed. We must live what we believe, and we must show love to all those around us, starting with GOD.
In a nutshell, we need men across this nation to turn to Jesus Christ in repentance and allow the Spirit of GOD to possess and fill them, so they can be the fathers and husbands and men that GOD desires them to be. GOD established men to be responsible leaders who watch out for all those around them.
“But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 11:3
Men, we must stop pointing our fingers at those above and around us. We must start looking in the mirror each morning and pointing the finger at ourselves, and let revival start with us.
