    Haven’t done a “Life in Fayetteville” in a long while. Sorry if you’ve felt deprived.

    Becoming secular has led to U.S.’s downfall

    I read the Sept. 6 letter “Voters will get what they deserve” by Russell Lewis. Well, I have listened to promises of politicians now for 60 years, and they all sound like a broken record, mostly lies. There are changes coming, but all are bad for the working man.

    What jobs are they going to create? God, at present, has removed his protection from the working man, because the working class have turned their backs on God and have become secular.

    The Roman Empire was secular; it fell. Lewis is correct: God decides who will rule and who will not, to serve his purpose for America.

    America today is following Galatians 5:19 (KJV): “Works of the flesh.” A Christian follows “fruits of the Spirit,” Galatians 5:22 (KJV).

    Church leaders are blind trying to lead the blind. If Christ came today and spoke in any church that calls itself Christian and the people didn’t know, they would throw him out because he would teach the Bible for what it really says and not what Christians would like to think it says. I am not “holier than thou,” judging myself from “fruits of the Spirit,” I am in trouble myself.

    The United States will fall like the Roman Empire because we are on the same course. We have thrown God and the Bible in the trash, and by doing so brought on our own destruction. No man can save us.

    Eh? But… huh… Okay, let me just summarize: Roman Empire, at it’s height, thoroughly pagan and religiously tolerant.

    Became Christian, bought into the idea of one state religion outlawing all others, and also fell as an empire, though the Roman Catholic church (clue is in the title) seemed to weather it.

    Meanwhile, apparently in the 80’s and 90’s we was all god fearing folks and that’s why we didn’t get our houses re-possessed and could afford to buy VHS then replace them with DVD’s. ‘Cos that’s how the big JC rolls.

    “‘Cos that’s how the big JC rolls.”

    Thank you, Pete, for supplying my first snort of the day!

    Well put, Mr. Darby.

    I’m so glad I’ll be leaving the stupids here… and going back to the ones in the reddest little county in Texas. *sigh*

    Wow, two references to the Roman Empire and two OT cites in the same letter. That must be some kind of record.

    I did enjoy Mr. Lewis’s work in The Nutty Professor, though.

    Hmm yes I much as I have loved living in the South.. I don’t miss the bible belt extremes. It’s been a long long time since I was asked by a 6 year old in the Walmart parking lot if I have been saved & then having to explain to my own child the awkward interaction that just took place & why I didn’t want to have a conversation w/ that little boy.
    We had a few years of J Witnesses making the door to door rounds here in DE but they stopped coming when one Saturday morning they rang & rang the bell before 9am after I had bad night w/ a collicky new baby & we were all finally sleeping in. I am sure they thought I was the devil incarnate for all the not so nice words that I spewed at the family of 4 that came that day.
    In fact it still blows me away that as I ranted like a madwoman- the father & mother actually got “behind” their small children and pushed them towards me. Some brave christian souls huh… sacrifice the kids to the crazed woman first.
