This week Bro. Leo continues us in our study of TRUTH by looking at how the truth of God is being changed into a lie in our Country.
Last week we learned in Romans 1 Paul describes a society’s actions prior to God’s judgement falling upon that society. In vs.25 and 23 they changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served corruptible self instead of God. In vs.28 they removed God from their knowledge. In vs.32 they deny there will be a judgement of God by taking pride in their sins. If we are honest with ourselves we can see that our society, here in the USA, has been doing what Paul describes in Romans 1 for 100+ years.
Bro. Leo reads several Founding Fathers quotes from the Founders Bible (https://shop.wallbuilders.com/product/the-founders-bible-digital-edition/) which proves the Founders devotion to the Christian faith. As well as the founding Mission statement of Harvard University.
In Psa.2:1 the word “rage” is translated from the Hebrew word “râgash” which means to be in an uproar or commotion, to be a tumultuous assembly of people. This is how the people who are rejecting God’s truth and spewing lies are acting in our society today.
In Isa.30:15 the word “quietness” is translated by the Hebrew word “shâqaṭ” which means to be at rest, settled and undisturbed, a state of tranquility, to possess a sense of safety and security. This is how Christians are acting during these times.
This synopsis does not come close to covering all the points in this study, so please take some time and listen to this audio file for all the details.
