Why America is Being Cursed

I have just returned from visiting the USA after being in Europe over the last month. What I find in visiting the USA both shocked and alarmed me. I found a nation continuing to sleep-walk towards its own destruction.

The American people have increasingly become “dumbed down” through their media – they are becoming polarized with extremists on both the left and right proclaiming messages of hate and intolerance. Yet the media fails to inform Americans the peril their country is now in – there is a total lack of awareness of the dangers that lie ahead. People fail to grasp on the realities of the economic, political and environmental world which the USA must now co-exist in. There appears to a total lack of leadership or understanding in solving America’s or the world’s problems.

One of the tragedies resulting from the “brain-washing” of the American people is in deceiving them that they are the greatest nation of earth that their way of life is the model all nations should follow. The leadership claims that democracy is the form of governments all nations should adopt. America is the “land of freedom”, yet the majority of American’s are under bondage to an economic system that has enslaved them.

Yet many America’s continue to deceive themselves into believing that God is blessing America. While they continue to sing “God Bless America” it is becoming increasingly clear that God is no longer blessing America. Rather, America is now being cursed because of its sins.

Why would God curse America when it still proclaims to be a Christian nation? Clearly God has blessed America in the past – why should these blessing now withdrawn and the nation be cursed. The reason why America is being cursed is because of the rejection of the legal code given to us by God through the Bible on how we are to live our lives, and be governed. Let’s look at some of the reasons how and why America is being cursed today, which will shortly lead to its destruction.

1. War – the mess America has got itself into in Iraq us a direct result of the nation relying on its own military might and trying to resolve international problems though force, rather than having the faith to trust God to defend them, as He promised if we keep His commandments. It will eventually result in the defeat of the USA, followed by its economic collapse.

2. Economics – why has what once was the world’s richest nation now the world’s greatest debtor nation. America is now totally dependent on being able to attract capital from its former enemies to prevent its economy collapsing. When America’s former enemies are no longer prepared to lend the money to sustain the American economy will be the time its economy will collapse.

3. Environmental – clearly the USA is now suffering the direct consequences of the break-down of the global environment. No other nation has squandered its non-renewable resources as America has done. The rejection of environmental laws God has given mankind has directly resulted in the ecological disaster how planet now faces. Yet America’s leaders continue to live in denial that these problems exist, because the changes needed to be made would not be acceptable economically or politically. Yet unless these changes are made, natural disasters such as the recent hurricanes will continue to increase.

4. Law and Order – continued break-down of moral standards and growth in the influence of drugs has resulted in an exploding prison population and growth is most types of crime. I was shocked to experience people being physically attacked and beaten while in the center of San Francisco in broad daylight when visiting this city.

5. Care for the needy – I was amazed to see the numbers of homeless living on the streets in the USA. For a nation that has so much wealth, it is a shock to see so many poor people begging in the streets. This one does not see in Europe or New Zealand. There is something wrong with a society that does not provide care for those less fortunate.

6. Divisions within American society – the opposition to the Iraqi War is now gaining moment, with public demonstrations against the occupation of Iraq throughout the USA. Unfortunately, the American people were lied to by their leaders, supported by the populist media (such as Fox News) and the Christian-right into supporting the invasion of Iraq in 2003. They have now are coming to realize how they were deceived. To withdraw the American forces from Iraq now would be an even worse disaster for the country than the illegal invasion was in the first place.

7. Cost of living – as inflation increases, and real incomes declined, many people are now struggling to exist. Increasing interest rates placing additional burdens of the American consumer and industry. The standard of living will steadily decline as the national and consumer debts grow – a greater percentage of income is being required to service these debts, reducing disposable income. Taxation will continue to increase as the governments struggle with increasing domestic and military expenditure.

8. America’s ability to defend itself – the War against Terrorism has placed a considerable burden on the domestic economy, with little to show for it. For a visitor to the USA today one feels like one is entering the Soviet Union in the days of the Cold War. While Homeland Security is costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars, the military is being starved of resources for the equipment required to defend America.

9. The destruction of America’s production base. America became great through exporting its goods, technology and services to the world. This ability of America to produce and export competitively is being under-mined, as more resources are being diverted into defense and the military. While Japan and Germany (both high-cost producing countries) continue to competitively increase their exports, American industry is no longer able compete internationally.

10. The health of Americans – anyone visiting the USA is amazed with the number of over-weight people. Clearly something is wrong with the American diet. Maybe it is the hormones used in producing meat that is partly responsible. Where you have a society driven by greed, producing food for maximum profit, regardless of the consequences to the consumer, the result are a people often eating themselves to death, always lusting for more, and never satisfied.

The decline and coming collapse of the American Empire will be sudden and dramatic. It will reduce the USA to a land of poverty – its people will face horrendous tribulation. There will be total economic collapse. Money will become worthless. There will be a complete break-down in law and order – anarchy will reign. There will be wide-spread famine and disaster. Millions will die. What was once the richest country in the world will soon become the poorest nation in the world?
