“The fool hath said in his heart, “There is no God.”

You will find this phrase in in your Bible. It is very sad that God has endowed so many with so much and seemingly we still act the fool. Our nation and our churches were founded by men who were no less than geniuses. It is so sad to see where we have come to in today’s world.

Plastic bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned. You can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but be rewarded for entering our country illegally. Children have to get permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin, but can get an abortion without consent. If you board an airplane, cash a check, by liquor, get a library book or rent a video you have to have a picture ID, but you need nothing to vote for who runs our country. Gun control is at the top of the list of agenda in this country, but giving twenty F-16 fighter jets to a rogue nation is acceptable. An 80-year-old woman in a wheelchair can be strip searched or a three-year-old girl, but if you wear a burka or a hijab only the neck and head are required. Our government believes the way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend more money. A seven-year-old boy is thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute” but a sexual exploration class is acceptable. Hard work and success is met with higher taxes, government regulation and intrusion while not working is rewarded with food stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing and free cell phones.

Our nation was founded by geniuses but apparently now is being run by idiots. Now we know why God said the man that does not believe there is a God is a fool.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
