The “me” culture.. the destroyer of nations

There are several cultures at work within the world, as there are several cultures at work within the church. Now I say “church” as a whole of all that say they are believers in God. In fact, in Revelation there are seven churches a.k.a. cultures listed.

The most dominate culture for all the cultures within the world and the church is the one that says, “Everything revolves around ‘me”.”

Yes, the “me” culture is everywhere. It reminds me of the age of Galileo Galilei, in which the culture of the time was also self-centered to the point of stating that the earth was the center of the universe and everything revolved about it.

It is also in this time that written material was available, but mainly to those of great wealth. My point in mentioning this is what I have been witnessing more and more in today’s schools in the United States. That being to teach the basics and to do that poorly and not teach knowledge. The “histories” being taught today are not complete or changed to no longer teach of freedom, but on reliance upon the state; simply socialism, which is a step below communism. Communism, which has been shown to be corrupt, self-serving to those in power and ultimately destructive to the very nation that practices it.

I have seen the news broadcast (when news was worth watching) of long lines for the ordinary citizens of the former U.S.S.R. just to get the basic foods to survive till the next week at which time they would have to stand in line once again. While those in powers or of import to the nation lived in luxury. This is what the citizens of the United States are now be led to do, by those that are in power at this time. Daily we hear of corruption in various departments of the government. All by those that have been in office for their entire live. That is not how this nation was designed to work. Those that go to the government were meant to stay a few years then leave. That is what it needs to be returned to.

The “me” culture is not what is taught within the Bible. Self-sacrifice is what is taught. Jesus completed the ultimate self-sacrifice, upon the cross. Another example is that of Job. A man who was rich and was reduced to a sick beggar in the streets homeless. He kept his faith in God and all was restored to him. Job always placed God first. Yes, he lamented about his suffering, but once he placed God first things improved.

Right now, the U.S. is suffering and many are lamenting, but recently there are some signs that people are starting to place God first again. Once most do this and return God to the core of this nation you will see this nation rebound.

We need to strive to remove those in powers that are so blinded by their “me” mentality that they do not see that they are doing anything wrong. When in reality they are. They feel they have broken no laws. What is worse the corruption has spread so far that is affecting those that in the past exposed this corruption to the world. Now they sing hand in hand that the world is better to have corruption rule the land rather than God rule the land.

This nation was founded upon religious freedom. People moved here to get away from a government that was the church. Now you have those that say there is too much God in the government and are forcing the true God out only to replace Him with the god of “me”

Which, to me is the ultimate form of corruption. As the statement says, “ultimate power corrupts ultimately.”

This is one of the key elements that those that preach Socialism throw out to those willing to hear and listen. It has been this way since the beginning of the 20th century. This was one of the selling points by Lenin and Marx during the revolution that overthrew the Russian Empire.
Another key element in Socialism is the rejection of religions or more accurately God.
Now here is something that has been done throughout the centuries. Not just the open rejection of God, but the belief that humans can govern and control other humans. This is what Socialism boils down to. A government of select people dictating through rules and regulations who can have what and how much. This is a key element of most democracies as well as monarchies throughout all time. This however is not a key element of a republic which was the original governmental makeup of the United States when it was first founded.
Those that belief that Socialism has never been done in the “right state of mind,” is a fallacy from the very beginning. It always starts in honorable ideals and actions, but always ends very badly.
But for now we will leave this alone and bring in another aspect. That being Christianity. Most of you will not believe this, but the Bible actually does describe how a community of Christians are to interact with each other. Christian’s are instructed to care for the widows and orphans of their fellows. It clearly states that if God has blessed them with worldly wealth not to horde it but to share it with their fellows that have not been given wealth.
Since I have never seen this done in the correct manner in my entire lifetime then I can understand why so many Millennials seek after Socialism.
Here is the problem. It is not, nor has ever been, the responsibility of the government to provide for the wellbeing of those within their respective communities. It is the responsibility without taxation of those within the communities to address the issues themselves. Whenever a third party known as a government gets involved in the situation it opens the door to corruption, greed and mismanagement. This is one reason why this nation was founded as a republic and why the federal government had limited powers. This is why the majority of power was left in the hands of the states. For those closest to the problems could handle them better. The further you get away from the problems the odds of solving them becomes impossible to achieve.
Now to return to allowing the government to be your caregiver, which is the basic tenants of Socialism. Two countries in the world went to full socialism, which then took the next logical step of becoming communism which is that the government controls every aspect of your life. I lived in the time when these two nations were coming to an end. One the U.S.S.R. which refused to let go of the socialist ideals, even though corruption had been prevalent within ten years of its forming. I watched the news has they showed lines of people waiting to get into their local markets just to pick up what they could to eat. Usually bread and butter. On the other end of the spectrum you had those in the upper levels of their government living wealthy lives and eating caviar as well as any other food they wished to have. They surrounded themselves with beautiful women who were their mainly just to survive and to steal want little food they could get the hands on to give to their families.
The same was happening in China, but as they saw the soon downfall of the U.S.S.R. they realized they must adapt and change. So in 1978 they allowed the return of capitalism into their nation once again. However still the majority of it citizen must struggle to survive while those in power live in luxury.
I also suggest you listen to how things are for North Korea a small communist country and you will hear the same horror stories and of political purging time and again. This is where Socialism always leads.
A prime example in history of the first true Socialist endeavor was the French Revolution, even though they were not strictly following a known socialist doctrine. The ideals and reasons behind it were nearly the same as the removal of the Russian Emperor at the beginning of the twentieth century. The result was the guillotine and then a power hungry dictator named Napoleon.
Socialism always ends up worse for the common human being and only a select few live in wealth and luxury while the rest live in poverty and starvation. It is simply a modified dictatorship or monarchy.
You can never get something for nothing. That is why capitalism is the best way to succeed and allows everyone the opportunity to do so.
It is here that many of you reading will scoff and curse at what I just said. Examples of those living in poverty now within many of the inner cities within the United States will spring to your mind. Yet what you are actually seeing is Socialism already in practice within the inner cities. Most within these areas already rely upon the government to survive and they are governed by strict regulations not allowing them to gain money without destroying their families in the process.
What is needed is the removal of government not the increase and more dependents upon those few in power that feel they are better than anyone else. These are things that are taught within the Bible to look for, and I challenge you to pick one up and read it, just make sure it is not a NIV version for that one has been modified by those that wish to control and govern you.

People need to watch “The Dark Knight Rises” and really look at it

Within this movies terrorist say they have come to save Gotham for the people. That the rich are to surrender what is theirs and give it to the masses.
They accomplish this goal and they show a city in chaos. They show people living in mass a commune. The last time the people rose up to take from the rich was in Russia and ended in a new elitist rich and all else poor to the point of that nation ending in disarray and collapse.
This is what the socialist, Black Lives Matter and other groups that have their core from the left which to do to the United States. This is the road the current president has accelerated.
But what is the core of this problem? The fact that God is being removed from society and places of import. Done through court actions which go against the First Amendment. For the amendment clearly states that the government cannot impede upon the practice of their faith. Yet every court action that removes God from the public is an action against this very amendment.
God is required for this nation to survive. This was even emphasized by the founding fathers of this nation.
Thomas Jefferson
3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event.”
Acts 10:34 – Then Peter replied, “I see very clearly that God shows no favoritism. 35 In every nation he accepts those who fear him and do what is right.
