I recently watched, one more time, the movie, Ten Commandments. There is one scene in the movie that has repeatedly come to my mind over the last year. When Moses parts the Red Sea and all the Jews cross safely to the other side, and the Sea falls back into place the Jews finally feel free and safe. Moses goes up into the Mountain at which time he sees the Burning bush and God gives him the Tablets with the Ten Commandments engraved on them. While Moses is up in the Mountains the saved Jews below, in their over joyous mood, because they escaped from the land of the Pharaoh’s, work themselves up into a frenzy. The mood among the Jews goes from happiness to joyous to sinful erotica. They build pagan Gods to pray to. They dance in a very uninhibited manner, partake in orgies, drink themselves into a stupor, start praying to false Gods, lose all inhibitions, forget who led them to the promised land (God) and turn away from God.
In the movie version of the Ten Commandments, which is a story taken from the Bible, the Jews, man, lost his way and God was not pleased. Those who did not repent were banished to hell, those who repented were saved. And life went on.
Now, Two thousand years later, in America we are seeing a replay, so to speak, much like the movie version, and very much like the story in the Bible, but in some respects it is playing out in many different ways, our country is in total chaos, but the underlying theme of Godlessness, is still there.
Society has changed. Many no longer value themselves, have no self respect, have no morals, have lost compassion for their fellow man, and have become selfish, and self-serving.
It is apparent in our leaders, like Congress, who have an uncontrollable appetite for more money and power. They have no qualms about walking over one another to climb the ladder of success. The President had no reservations about throwing his party’s members under the bus, for not voting his way on the Health Care Bill. Our leaders believe they are above the law and openly break them. If they have money and power they do not suffer the consequences of breaking the law. Did Charlie Rangel ever relinquish those HUD apartments in New York or lose his seat in Congress?
These same ugly excuses for human beings spew hatred against law-abiding citizens. They call Patriotic Americans “Astro-turf”. Look whose calling whom “artificial.”
Many of these Congressional leaders call Tea Party people Racists. They make deals under the table and get rich on our time and buck. These bloodsuckers have no ethics, no honor and no humility. They are truly un-American.
Our Congressional gold-diggers are like the people in the movie, Ten Commandments; they have lost their way and it doesn’t look like they are about to change for the better, anytime soon. They have taken American history out of school books. they have taken the Ten Commandments off the walls of our court houses. They have taken over almost every sector of our society and turned it into a government entity. They have promised the poor a better life, so that they will vote to keep them in office. This will change, once they get what they want, which is a weak America, where the citizens do what they are told.
They have decided the elderly are of no use any longer, and it’s not because they are old, but because they are smart and know what the leaders are up to and would stand in their way. Those seniors, Congress wants to get rid of, with their “Death Panels” are the only people holding this country together. Once they are gone, so is America.
Americans have lost the one thing that made America great; “In God We Trust”. They have lost their faith, they have turned their backs on God. ss
