More than 70 years after the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the question of whether the decision was the right one is still being asked. Subscribe to The Washington Post on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2qiJ4dy from video introduction.
Should we drop a tactical nuclear bomb somewhere in or near Russia? - Andy
Americans Are Coddled & Cowardly?
"An attack on the U.S. homeland would bring out the fight in most Americans. according to a new poll, but a surprisingly large percentage say they’d flee.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday asked Americans what they would do “if they were in the same position as Ukrainians are now: stay and fight or leave the country?”
A majority 55% say they would “stay and fight,” while 38% say they would leave the country, according to the poll.
Among those who say they would stand and fight, Republicans lead the charge.
The poll revealed that 68% of Republicans would stay and fight, compared to 57% of independents and 40% of Democrats..." from the article: Poll: If U.S. were attacked, 38% say they would flee country
What would you do?
The all out effort of the Greatest Generation during World War Two would not be repeated by Americans today.
Human government is always in rebellion against God. The largest empires of the world are an affront to God. Look at America, abortions, pornography, greed, adultery etc. and tell me we are not an affront to God.
All Nations are Worthless
1 Samuel 8:6-7
6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king.
Isaiah 40:17, 23
Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing. He brings princes to nothing, and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
the center of Christ’s message and calling for our lives is to love everyone, including our enemies, we have to understand that the devil gives rulers and authorities their power. Therefore, we love them as people, we pray for these people, but we recognize that Satanic spiritual forces fundamentally animate their power.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
While our war isn’t against people, as Paul explains, it is against rulers, authorities, powers, and against the spiritual forces of evil. The Greek words used for ‘rulers’ and ‘authorities’ are ‘archas’ and ‘exousias.’ Paul uses these same words when describing how God will overcome the world.
When God Allows Humanity to Destroy Themselves
Video from DTBM
"When God Removes His Restraint Humanity Destroys Itself Revelation 6:1-11 One of God’s attributes is His wrath. Last time we saw His future, ultimate, smoldering wrath as He returns to judge the world. That is His cataclysmic wrath as He pours out His fiery indignation. There is another element of God’s wrath and that is what operates all the time. It is called His consequential wrath. Cataclysmic & Consequential, both are forms of God’s wrath against sin, and sinners who do not repent. God’s consequential wrath was built into His creation of the universe. Please turn with me to Hebrews 11. Our Creator-God who is the All-Mighty Maker of the Heavens & the Earth, spoke so much into existence at Creation, that scientists have never stopped discovering, for thousands of years, more and more of what He did. Underlying all the vast parts of the Universe, are laws that seem to govern everything. Have you ever thought that human scientists only discover and name laws that are already there? Humans didn’t make the laws of physics or biology, they just discovered and try to use them. We know them as the: Immutable Laws of Nature We all know that there are laws in science. The well used laws of science lead to constant technological advances. The more we know, understand, and harness those laws the faster, smaller, and more powerful & efficient our technology becomes. But for just a moment, think about where those laws came from. Immediately we as believers know that they came from the Almighty God who spoke into existence this Universe, overflowing with the laws of thermodynamics and electromagnetism that frame everything. God invented, instituted, and maintains those very laws of science that every scientist lives by and works with. The laws of electromagnetism have led humans to understand the spectrum of light, sound, and all other known waveforms. So much so that we can study, measure, and eventually use the various lengths & speeds of these waves, which include the tiny realm of visible and hearable waves of sound and light. Waves of electromagnetism go in both directions on the spectrum so far studied, from the super large and slow waves (like radio waves) to super small and fast waves (gamma rays) . Someone Made Those Laws of Nature." from video introduction.
