Daniel 2:31-45: Our form of government is not the best.
Nebuchadnezzar received a vision. In it, he saw that every government here that is after his is called inferior to that before it. It ended with God destroying it all and being the only government– or the creation of His Kingdom which would eventually conquer the Earth.
Many believe the American ideals and that these should be worldwide because this is the best way to have freedom; however, what we see is reality is that our form of government allows for all sorts of sin to gain social acceptance. As long as you can get enough people to vote for it or can get a court to deem it part of the freedoms we have been granted, it becomes the law.
As legislation leaves the area of government and moves into the realm of moral choices, what is legal replaces our moral code because the two parties begin to diverge.
Ezekiel 16:49-50: Sodom’s biggest sin sound very familiar.
When you hear of Sodom and Gomorrah you mostly think of the sin of sodomy, but Ezekiel states that they also had another and even bigger problem. Sodom had pride, was rich, but did not care for the poor and needy. An abomination pushed God over the edge and He removed them.
1 Corinthians 1:20-25: God says that the world views the Gospel as foolishness.
The evaluation of the world is that God is a fairy tale. Why should we base what we think about what the Bible tells us or what God expects of us based on what the world thinks of it?
God works in ways that bring Him glory—the exact opposite of what modern man believes and antithetical to the American “Puritan work ethic”. God used walking around a city to bring down the walls of Jericho, and He used one small child to take down a giant.
In 2 Corinthians 12:10 we see that God used Paul, who had a thorn in his side specifically there so that he would not boast in himself, but would give the glory to God.
