The Church That Cares For Your Soul

Acts 17:26-27 – And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

Genesis 11:9 – Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

All men came from one seed, Adam.  At the Tower of Babel, God confused the languages and hence created the races.  Prior to that all men and women shared a common language.  When God created different languages he also created borders or bounds for men’s habitations.  Each nation, after the Tower of Babel, shared a common culture also.  Culture can often be bad but it can also be good.  Good culture holds a country together when we share a language, common goals and patriotism to a cause that is godly.

America was founded on a common language and culture.  That language was English.  The culture was a Judeo-Christian culture.  The common book was the King James Bible.  A nation that is going to survive must maintain both a common language and culture.  God was the one who put bounds or restrictions the countries.  He had a purpose in mind when he did that.  It is so we would seek him, feel after him, then find him and get saved.  It is necessary to have bounds on people so they can get saved.

The Bible makes it clear that the destruction of borders, the introduction of multi-culturalism, and the introduction of mutilple languages will destroy a nation.  You wonder why people are not getting saved in America.  It is partly because the borders are being destroyed.  It is more than just immigrants coming in illegally across our borders.  It is the fact that they no longer assimilate into our culture.  America will be destroyed the same way as Rome, it will be destroyed from within.  When you lose your language and culture, you have no basis for support and values.  At that point, any culture is fine and any value is fine.  Any sin goes, any ill goes.  People are no longer able to seek God happily because they have no bounds of right and wrong.

We will need a Holy Ghost revival to fix this.  God scattered us for a reason.  He put bounds up for a reason.  It’s always easier if we follow God’s plan, the problem is no one wants to listen to him and people do not learn from history.  Bounds in a Christian’s life are important too.  We need to have common language and common culture in our churches and families so that we might seek God.  That culture needs to be a Biblical culture and the language needs to be the language of the Bible also.  It is the glue that holds the church together.
