Reviewing 2015–The Best Article Summarizing It I’ve Seen!

It has been a wild year. Not to sound totally gloomy, but I cannot point to a year in our history that has spiraled downward anywhere near this one. Yes, we have had crises many times, including war and deaths, but 2015 has been the year we have literally run from God and away from who we are as Americans. A little more of this kind of decline and the American Dream will be over. The Christian foundation of our national heritage will be crumbled and paved over too.

I want to share an article that shows how much we have lost our way. It doesn’t even mention the biggest blows like the Supreme Court legalizing homosexual marriage, or the most polarizing political correctness of the year. It is smaller PC messes that is nothing short of insanity that are given.

George Will, a brilliant columnist, writes as only he can in this National Review piece. See if you agree that it summarizes well what has transpired in 2015.

2015 Foolish Finish by George Will

In any event The Lord has been good to me and has blessed me immeasurably in 2015. I pray you have a blessed, and Christ-filled New Year.

God bless!

  1. Happy New Year!

    2015 was the best year so far. I saw more people turning to the Scriptures and turning away from tradition, training and teaching. My heart was filled with joy to see Christians have a desire to stay on the path that Jesus walked. Believers actually had a desire to “STUDY” to show themselves approved unto God as opposed to seeking approval from men.

    Just as we are seeing in the political realm, people are tired of professionals that have always governed with the mindset of, “Business as usual;” hence, believers are also looking to unshackle themselves from professionals that only follow a rote of worship. Jesus Christ was amazing and awesome; His ministry was not mechanical.

    The ills that have plagued every society since Genesis (read sin here) still remain. The Scriptures are crystal clear on this point. “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Over 200 years ago preachers thought that their culture was so wicked surely the Lord would return at any moment. Are you still here?

    I find great solace in knowing that God is still on the throne, He has not fallen asleep and nothing takes Him by surprise. There has, and always will exist those who are: filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful….until the Lord returns.

    Just because someone deems an action or behavior as being “Legal” does not indicate that it never existed before legalization. Moreover, what men make legal in their economy does not make it acceptable in the eyes of God. A review of history gives us the opportunity to know that earlier societies and cultures permitted worse than what governments have allowed today.

    If anything, we have lost our focus by wasting the time given to us by debating, discussing and deliberating on those things that deter the fulfillment of our commission.

    And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:18-20)

    • I praise the Lord that you have had such a wonderful year serving Him! I have no loss of faith in what our mighty God can do either. Still, I am sad about the direction of my country. She is leaving God completely and that cannot be without consequence.
