How to make sense of what’s happening today

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Rational minds naturally attempt to determine a logical understanding of the events that are occurring all around them.


You know the concerns.

Why is masking kindergarten kids more of a priority than rescuing American citizens from the Taliban?

Why are nonvaccinated New Yorkers denied access to restaurants and grocery stores when hordes of Covid positive foreign aliens are transported at government expense all over America?

And, why is our military worried about pregnancy flight suits when China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and now Afganistan are developing war scenarios against the U.S.?


There is a rational answer. Actually, it’s very simple. It’s never discussed in the media, but, it is nonetheless valid.


As a nation, we are suffering the wrath of God.


Romans 1:18 and 22 details it succinctly.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them: for God made it evident to them. Professing to be wise, they become fools,”

Has not the U.S. denied God?  Engel v. Vitale 1962 – banning prayer in schools. Roe v. Wade 1973 – approving abortion at will.  Obergefell v. Hodges 2015 – recognizing same-sex marriages.


And how has God responded? “God gave them over.” He let them freely pursue the desires of their sinful hearts.

In Romans 1:24, “God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity…”

And thus we had the sexual revolution of the ’60s.


In Romans 1:26, “God gave them over to dishonorable passions; for their females exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way, also the males abandoned the natural function of the female and burned in their desire toward one another, males with males committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.”

And thus the LGBT movement with multiple genders and personal pronouns on everything from birth certificates to driver licenses.


Finally, In Romans 1:28 “God gave them over to an unfit mind, to do those things which are not proper…”

And that’s where we are now, “minds that do not work.”


This is manifest in the decisions, policies, determinations, goals, and movements that we see all around us.


God’s wrath and His judgment are evident in the multitude of men’s minds that are unfit and are making the type of decisions that rational men struggle to make sense of.


We are undergoing the wrath of God, and men with unfit minds are now callings the shots.

Thad, how I wish you would not only offer these blogs in print, but as podcasts! Those who haven’t had the good fortune I’ve enjoyed, for several years, of hearing you speak in person are really missing out. Your writings reflect how you speak…with conviction, passion, concisely, articulately, unwavering, and quick to back up what you say with Biblical verses.

You are right on with this post… I’d also add the California drought and fires.
