I heard “Psalm 36” this morning. Since pastors have systematically removed any idea of the fear of God before evangelicals’ eyes through the false doctrines of once-saved-always-saved, “we don’t have to be led by the Holy Spirit, being right with God and all people,” etc., this seems applicable to many in the ‘church’ — and therefore America. Because when the ‘church’ is no longer salt and light, purifying the nation, we have this:
An oracle is within my heart about the disobedience of the wicked: “There is no fear of God before his eyes.”
For he flatters himself in his own eyes, too much to detect and hate his sin.
The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit. He has ceased to be wise and to do good.
He plots iniquity on his bed. He sets himself in a way that is not good. He doesn’t abhor evil.
