I Apologize to You God
By David J. Stewart
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." —Psalm 9:17
I apologize on behalf of my nation. The United States of America has become a large Sodom and Gomorrah. I am so sorry Lord, you deserve far much better. You have blessed us with freedom, and yet we taunt your holiness by living in unrepentant sin. You gave us your precious Word, and yet we have banned It from our public school's curriculum since 1963.
Your Word teaches us to pray; yet since 1962 teachers have been legally forbidden to lead children in prayer. You teach us in your Holy Word that you lovingly formed mankind out of the dust of the earth, and breathed into us the breath of life; yet, our schools are legally required to teach children that they evolved from apes.
We are so filled with sinful pride and stubbornness in America that we have even renamed one of our most popular cities SIN CITY! Some people believe that You judged New Orleans with hurricane Katrina, which makes me wonder what's going to happen to Sin City Las Vegas? Americans, including professed Christians, can't seem to get enough of Sin City. The overall themes of Sin City are gambling and fornication. In fact, Nevada boasts of legalized prostitution. And let me tell you, What Happens in Vegas is RECORDED in Heaven! I apologize to you Lord Jesus, that we are such big hypocrites in this country.
You told us in 1st John 3:8... "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." We not only commit sin in America, we parade it up and down our streets in the form of homosexual parades and public nudity. This is what God is talking about in 1st John 3:8. Gay pride is sinful pride. In Brattleboro, Vermont, citizens are legally allowed to walk around completely naked, and they do!
There is nothing as filthy in America today as County Music Television (CMT). CMT is nothing but a bunch of whores and whoremongers who don't care about morals or decency! I'm so sorry that we treat you like garbage Lord.
Unbelievably, most of these country-music-singing-hypocrites call themselves Christians, who help produce lascivious videos to make a buck, and cause more sexual sins. We are so wicked Lord, that we even taunt your command not to commit idolatry by hosting a show called AMERICAN IDOL. Carrie Underwood sings, Jesus Take the Wheel; but her personal life is an entirely different story, having been featured in SELF-magazine.
I apologize on her behalf Lord, that she has mocked your name. Faith Hill, who has unrepentantly posed twice in Playboy, sang the Gospel hymn I Surrender All on the Oprah Winfrey show. I'm sorry for her wickedness Lord. We are a rotten bunch in America. We claim to trust in you; but we DON'T.
Woe unto America, we deserve the judgment we are bringing upon ourselves. Where is repentance? Where is sorrow over sin? Where is the guilt that we should have as a nation over our wickedness? We are a stiffnecked people, many of whom are working relentlessly to pass anti-hate speech laws to shun the truth of God's Word concerning sin. No one is trying to shun the Atheists, homosexuals, Communists or feminists. No one is trying to shun Black Muslims who spew absolutely contempt and hatred for Caucasian people. No, but they want to shun Christians who Biblically speak out against the sin of homosexuality. This nation is headed for the dust! I apologize to you Lord, for we are a woefully sinful people.
I apologize to you God for the blasphemous ads ran on Washington D.C. buses throughout the Thanksgiving holidays in 2008. We are so ungrateful for your blessings in America. I'm sorry that we spit in your face in the United States. I'm sorry that Sarah Palin and many professed Christians like her call you a liar and a war criminal. I'm sorry that most of our churches are blinded by apostasy and support tyranny. I apologize that we are stealing Iraq's oil. Sadly, we arrogantly think we can do as we please in America and don't take responsibility for our actions as a nation. We are woefully guilty.
I am sorry Lord, that we are a nation of quitters and liars. Our divorce rate is higher than any nation on earth, bar none. We Americans all exchange the same wedding vows... “For better, for worse; 'til death do us part”; BUT, then we look for excuses and reasons to justify a divorce when we want out. People do what they want to do, and then look for reasons to justify their actions, with no honest regard for the truth of your Word Lord. Evil people all across America are running around spouting, “Some marriages just weren't meant to be,” with absolutely no regard for their marriage vows, or Your Holy Word.
We have deteriorated into a nation of liars, cheaters, and promise-breakers. We have sinned as a nation! Sadly, because of the evils of feminism, women file for divorce TWICE as much as men. We have spit on you God. It is utter evil. Our lawyers, judges, and politicians are world renowned LAIRS! Our kids are taught that it's ok to lie if they cross their fingers. We are a spiritually sick people.
We are a nation of idolaters, who worship rock stars and entertainers. We ought to fall on our faces before you Lord, and repent of our idolatry. We ought to burn every rock-n-roll recording in existence (and thankfully one day they will be, as you have promised). We are a rock-n-roll nation of fornicators, who have irresponsibly flaunted Your moral laws, and as a result have caused tens-of-millions of unwanted pregnancies. In our wickedness, we have stooped lower-than-low by murdering those same children through abortion.
Isn't it convenient for us, to be able to just wash our hands of sin, and selfishly move on in our self-righteousness? We have declared it legal to disobey Exodus 20:13... “Thou shalt not kill.” We don't obey You Lord, and I apologize for the sins of my fellow countrymen. We are a nation of blood-thirsty murderers. Abortuaries exist all across America. Our political leaders have the audacity to make pompous speeches, bragging about how America is a nation that values life, when nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it be the terminated life of Terri Schiavo or the lives of the 48,000,000 aborted children—we are a nation of MURDERERS!!! We have defied Your authority God.
Ezra 9:6-7, “And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.”
I apologize to you God for the rebellion of the American people, from the United States to the island of Guam (America's furthest east territory), we have embraced sin. Our society is saturated with demonism—from hellish rock music to witchcraft, from rebellious wives to fornication, from feminism to lesbianism, from drunkenness to strip joints, from night clubs to gambling casinos, from immodestly dressed women to pornography—we have sinned against You oh Lord! The television (Hellivision) has become our god.
We are not a stupid people Lord, for we have some of the most brilliant minds in the world in our nation; BUT, rather, we are a sinful people, who are willfully ignorant of Your Truths. We are a very foolish people, and a stubborn nation. We deserve judgment, and no blessing whatsoever. How dare any American today ask God to bless America—when we LEGALLY allow pornography, prostitution, rebellious wives, divorce, gambling, drunkenness, abortion, homosexuality, gay-marriages, lesbianism, adultery, fornication, witchcraft, nudity, psychics, Girls Gone Wild, and every other form of SINFUL vile filth imaginable.
I apologize to you God on behalf of my nation, for we are a sinful people filled with stubborn pride. We are spoiled in America, having an overabundance of food and consumer goods, enjoying your wondrous blessings; YET, we thanklessly call Christmas "X-Mas," and teach our children about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny instead of Jesus. We are a rotten bunch of ingrates in America.
Jesus healed ten lepers, and only one came back to thank Him (Luke 17:12-18). Americans are amongst the nine lepers, who refuse to thank God for their blessings. We have become a gluttonous people oh Lord, eating like pigs and then searching for a drug to help us lose weight. We spend irresponsibly, and then gamble in an attempt to pay our bills. Instead of living for You Lord, Americans patronize night clubs, bars, and dance halls. We American's are infatuated with Dirty Dancing, Desperate Housewives, and Cheaters. Our TV shows curse You Lord, they make a joke of holiness, and mock the Bible.
Americans use Your Holy name in vain more than any other nation on earth. Cursing in God's name has become the insignia of Hollywood movies, and we are guilty as a nation for supporting such blasphemy (Deuteronomy 5:11). We have treated you like our enemy oh Lord, and we deserve to be punished. Please judge us Lord, for we are a stubborn people blinded by our own sinful pride. Woe unto us Americans!
Many of our top leaders are members of the demonic Bohemian Grove occult that worships Satan. This includes Presidents Ronald Reagan and both Bushs. I'm sorry Lord, you deserve better. I apologize that the average believer in America is ignorant of these things, because they are too indifferent to care about the truth. While America's churches are filled Sunday after Sunday with with professed Christians, very few are taking a Biblical stand against evil in this nation. In fact, many of our churches are part of the problem.
I apologize Lord for these disgraceful churches that are pro-abortion, and proudly march in pro-death rallies. I am so sorry that this church hired an ordained lesbian to be their associate pastor. Evidently insanity has crept into our churches, and is causing professed Christian to act crazy. Here's a pastor who thinks the murdering of 48,000,000 children is a MINOR CONCERN. Repent America!
We have sinned against you God, and I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Shame on us! I don't dare ask or expect You to bless my nation Lord, for we have abandoned You. God bless America? I think not. We have brought a curse upon ourselves Lord, by our own complacency and love for sin. Woe unto America! Even so come Lord Jesus.
