September 2009 Outcry

Romans 1:28-32 (KJV) says,

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (KJV)

This passage describes the attitude and character of today’s culture for those who reject Christ or who adopt antichrist attitudes. One of the saddest things on this list is covenant-breaking, especially when it comes to allies or other freedom-loving people. America has always been willing to stand up for what is right, but it is especially grievous when our leaders sacrifice strength and future peace through treasonous appeasement!

Neville Chamberlain, the prime minister of Great Britain in the 1930’s, practiced appeasement with Hitler until war nearly wiped out the nation. According to a report by Jeanette Calville, history is repeating itself with President Obama, choosing the Chamberlain route. Calville reports,

We knew and feared this was coming. Obama kissed Putin’s behind on his European campaign extravaganza and threw our Eastern Allies under the bus (back when that business with Georgia was blowing up) and now it’s all but official. From IBD:

The U.S. has abandoned plans to install a missile defense system in Europe, according to a report. If true, this is a major strategic error that will have serious consequences for our allies in Europe and for us.

Quoting a U.S. source, the Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza says the Obama administration has decided against building a missile shield to protect Poland and the Czech Republic. The reason? Russian opposition.

Now, if we want to build a defense system for friends in Europe, we’ll have to place it in the Balkans, Israel or somewhere else. That is, if Russia approves.

This is a stark reversal of past policy and reneges on promises made by the current administration. Worse, it shows weakness. We got into a staredown with the Russian bear and we blinked.

This is the treaty that Condi Rice and President Bush worked out. This is what our wonderful allies Poland, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Czech, Slovenia all wanted so desperately… NOW they again fear that they are looking down the guns and tanks of Russia storming back and crushing them… it is so tragic. The spirit of economic and social and political recovery in those countries was so powerful when I was there winter before last…  now this… America has turned its back on them (via Obama). [1]

How do we pray when we see history repeat itself to the point that a defensive shield envisioned by freedom-loving previous presidents is abandoned for temporary convenience, giving the Russians great advantage, along with Iran and North Korea. When I was in the military, a decision like that was tantamount to betrayal. King David prayed in Psalms 55:12-15 about betrayal. Because he was experiencing it, we have every right to follow David’s lead because we are experiencing what is encouraging our enemies to attack at some future date! Pray like David!
