Swept Under The Rug

 “Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
Psalm 82:4

In 1880, James Garfield he was elected president of the United States, but served only six months in office.

A lawyer named Charles Guiteau became angry when his application to be the U. S. ambassador to France was denied. After that he stalked the President for several days. On July 2, 1881, Guiteau fired two shots at President Garfield, and for the next 80 days, 16 doctors tended to the President.

The first doctor to treat the President was Willard Bliss, he stuck non-sterile fingers into the wound. He followed this by inserting a non-sterile probing instrument to find the bullet. And he never found the bullet. As a result, they concluded that the bullet had penetrated the liver and the President would die quickly.

Then the army surgeon general stuck his unwashed fingers into the wound and dug as deep. This was followed by the navy surgeon general searching with his fingers so deeply that this time he really did puncture the liver. All the doctors came to the conclusion that the President would die within 24 hours. But, Garfield didn’t die.

Then the famous Alexander Graham Bell rigged up a metal detector to help find the bullet. After several passes, Bell said he found the bullet, so the doctors cut him open to remove the slug, but it still was not found. All Bell located was a metal spring under the mattress.

In the end, they managed to take a 3-inch wound and turn it into a 20-inch canal of oozing black pus. Several days later President Garfield died of a heart attack.

At the autopsy, it was determined that the bullet had lodged itself some four inches from the spine in a protective cavity and the doctors said that the president would have survived if the doctors had left him alone.

America has a large wound with a massive sin infection and every day we have secularists sticking their dirty philosophy into her wound, we have liberal politicians wiping their demonic peroxide into her wound, and we have sinister social media pouring their deadly potion into her wound and America is getting sicker every day because America lacks the right godly wisdom applied to her wound!

America’s sickness is very complicated because of the growing tumor of sin spreading everywhere. Lying and cheating politicians, the breakdown of the family, the abandonment of faith, and the crippling addictions that include video games, gambling, food, prescription drugs, and drugs and alcohol. But there’s one addiction that’s been swept under the rug in so many lives – a massive sex addiction spreading throughout the broken hearts in millions of Americans.

This addiction is a silent killer! This addiction is behind the empty smiles of young and old. This addiction is spreading a dangerous infection deep into the consciousness of men and women. This addiction is creating satanic strongholds that are extremely hard to break – but not impossible!

Did you know that currently, Americans are the #1 consumers of pornography in the world? Did you know that Americans are the #1 consumers of the sex traffic industry that includes over 1.5 million enslaved children? And did you know that between 15,000 to 50,000 women and children are forced into sexual slavery in the United States every year?

Churches need to address these massive addiction issues that are strangling the life out of countless men, women, and children. No church can afford to look the other way and pretend that everything is good!

Today's American church is behaving like the captain of the Titanic. Capt. Edward John Smith did not take seriously the huge underwater iceberg that eventually sunk that massive modern ship. But even worst was the arrogant attitude the captain had. He boasted that the ship was invincible. In fact, Smith said, "Even God himself couldn't sink this ship."

America is not too big to fail! Sin will take this country down just as it did the mighty Roman Empire. History is full of examples where nations arrogantly ignored God and kept sailing an eventual sinking ship. Never forget that God always warns a nation before He wounds a nation!

The Church in America has always been a light house of hope because of the help and healing it has brought to the wounded and weary. My prayer is that our church will continue to be the brightest light in the darkest places here in Quartzsite!

We want to apply Christ's compassion to healing a sin sick patient called "America" with the truth found in the gospel of grace! Jesus said, “the truth will set you free!” And it was John Newton who said near the end of his life, "Although my memory is fading, I remember two things; I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Savior.”

God Bless His Church,

Pastor Dave
