You may have noticed that America has had a few problems regarding recent elections, and you’re probably a bit confused. Well, your confusion is about to end, because the whole situation has been explained for you by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
It’s at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry: Our Nation Is a Mess — What Does the Bible Say? It’s a long post, with numerous bible quotes, so we’ll have to be selective in what we give you. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
America is in a mess spiritually, morally, and politically. How should we understand what is happening? Should our emphasis be one of trying to save America? First, how does God view America or any nation?
Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales. (Isaiah 40:15)
Informative, huh? Then he says:
Should we look to man to solve the problems in this nation?
[One of many bible quotes:] It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. (Psalm 118:8)
Good advice! After that he asks (and answers) another question:
Should we look to politicians to solve the problems?
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. (Psalm 146:3–4)
What is wrong with the nation? To quote my good friend Ray Comfort [Hee hee!], this nation could be summed up this way:
The nation forgot the Lord their God who had blessed them abundantly, and had instead given itself to lawlessness and slaughtering their own offspring in the womb. Therefore, the judgment of God fell upon them.
Ah yes, it’s all about abortions. Let’s read on:
How then should we deal with these problems? [Tell us, Hambo!] America or any nation is not going to last forever, but the souls of people will live forever. Surely our emphasis should be on seeing souls saved for eternity through salvation in Christ.
That makes sense! Here’s another excerpt:
Yes, so many people in this nation, including many rulers (politicians, judges, etc.), have turned their backs on God. They have rejected God and his Word in the education systems. [Yeah, there’s no religion in school!] … They have rejected God in many ways through rejecting prayer, rejecting nativity scenes and crosses, and replacing the truth of God as Creator for the lie of evolution. (Even many church leaders and Christian academics have compromised God’s Word with evolutionary ideas).
Yes, that’s the cause of our problems. Here’s more:
What can we do? We need to tell the nations about the one true God and about the message of salvation that only he provides: [Big bible quote omitted]… And we should “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) for the souls of those who have rejected him.
Now we come to the end:
And remember — there’s a raging spiritual war, but we know this:
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4)
Now you understand the cause of America’s problems and how to solve them. What would we do without ol’ Hambo?
