God Has Forsaken America*

  • At least for the moment.

A brief news bulletin from above.

HEAVEN, January 26, 2020 — Jesus wept (John, Chapter 11, Verse 35 — King James version) when God informed him that America was no longer on his “watch” list.

“Why have you forsaken that land whose people built their country based on trusting in you,” the Son of God asked.

The short answer, God replied, “is that the work of the good men and women who displayed their trust in me centuries ago has been cast aside by citizens of this country who have turned their backs on lessons provided in messages from our Good Book.

“Some have even anointed Donald J. Trump as your ‘brother,’ my spirit returned to their planet, the ‘second coming’ of a Son of mine walking amongst the people of America.”

Surely, Jesus said, they realize Donald is a false prophet, that his spirit is filled with anger, hate. That he speaks for himself, not for others. That he believes in and worships a doctrine of doing unto others before they do it to him.

God shook his head. “No, my Son. Donald has converted many of our once proud followers to his way of life: lying, cheating, looking out for themselves instead of loving and supporting those who walk alongside them who need a helping hand or two.”

So, God continued, “stop hovering over the U.S. Senate chamber wasting time watching that impeachment ‘trial.’ Stop whispering in the ears of those who are blindly following Donald down his path of destruction of our once great experiment of a government for the people who put their trust in us.”

Jesus pushed back. “Are you certain there is no hope for those Americans who still do our work every day?”

God responded. “When Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked Me for diverting attention away from his corrupt acts that resulted in Donald ending up in control of our worldly experiment, I knew it was time to walk away from America.

“Men and women who care only about themselves, not their fellow world travelers who need Our help, do not deserve divine intervention. However, we need to keep watch over this country, be prepared to provide forgiveness if those walking alongside Donald on the darkside see the light before it’s too late.”

Jesus smiled at his Father. “Maybe, just maybe, a few more celestial whispers from Me will help these souls being tempted by the devil understand the errors of their ways. Can I give it one more try, Father?”

“Just be careful, my Son. Donald and Vladimir are devious souls. Don’t let them catch You trying to work your miracle.”

“Bless you, Father. They have sinned once too often. They need to be taught a lesson. We can’t give up just yet.”

  1. As a former minister, now an atheist, may I please interject these bible passages that backs up everything you say in this piece?

    Jeremiah 22:3-5: Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place. For if you will indeed obey this word, then there shall enter the gates of this house kings who sit on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their servants and their people. But if you will not obey these words, I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation.

    Malachi 3:5: “Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.

    Leviticus 19:33,34 : ‘When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.’The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.

    1 Kings 8:41-43: “Likewise, when a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, comes from a far country for your name’s sake (for they shall hear of your great name and your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm), when he comes and prays toward this house, hear in heaven your dwelling place and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to you, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house that I have built is called by your name.

    Matthew 5:25-30 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

    Matthew 25: 35-40: 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    Matthew 22:36-40: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    Matthew 19: 16-30: 16 A man came to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to have eternal life?” 17 Jesus answered, “Why do you ask me about what is good? Only God is good. But if you want to have eternal life, obey the law’s commands.” 18 The man asked, “Which ones?” Jesus answered, “‘You must not murder anyone, you must not commit adultery, you must not steal, you must not tell lies about others, 19 you must respect your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.’ 20 The young man said, “I have obeyed all these commands. What else do I need?” 21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, then go and sell all that you own. Give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven. Then come and follow me!” 22 But when the young man heard Jesus tell him to give away his money, he was sad. He didn’t want to do this, because he was very rich. So he left. 23 Then Jesus said to his followers, “The truth is, it will be very hard for a rich person to enter God’s kingdom. 24 Yes, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter God’s kingdom.”

  2. Having just finished “A Stable Genius” this morning makes the point of this missive all the more unsettling. Trump is a soulless dilettante who not only brags about his evil genius, he revels in it. Whether God has anything to do with him is one for the Fates to decide. On a secular level however, Trump and his enablers in the Senate seem intent had displacing ordinary decency with extraordinary evil and love of our great country with hate for the people who keep it that way. Why they want to destroy the greatest political experiment on Earth may become a question of the ages.
