No God, No Wisdom

Dennis Prager said that when he was going to the university during his younger years, he would listen to these highly intelligent professors.  He felt they were teaching very stupid things.  Many had no wisdom.

Our society was founded upon godly principles.  Yes, our country made a lot of mistakes along the way, but at least people knew pretty much right from wrong.  Most people believed in God.  Our laws were based upon His Word.

Our society has kicked God out of everything and look at the mess we are in.  It seems everything is falling apart.  No God. No wisdom.  He is where wisdom comes from, so if you don't know Him, you will not be wise. 

His ways are good ~

He tells us not to have any debt except to love others.  Look at what debt has done to this country:  People with mountains of debt, because they wanted things they could not afford.  Our nation is like the Titanic...The iceberg is the debt we owe...It is sinking us. 
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another.  
Romans 13:8

He tells us to not murder.  Look at what the murdering of millions of unborn babies has done.  Life is no longer valuable.  One's own convenience and comfort is much more important that giving life to another human being.  
You shall not murder.  
Exodus 20:13

He tells us to worship the Creator, not the creation.  Look at what worshiping the creation has given us instead:  the valuing of eagle's eggs over human beings, the valuing of not overpopulating the earth by killing innocent human beings.  
Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water. 
Revelation 14:6

He tells us to work hard and those that don't work, won't eat.  Look at what neglecting that has done for us:  built a welfare state that is unsustainable and is destroying our economy.  When people know they can get money for free, why work?  
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”  
II Thessalonians 3:10

He tells mothers to be keepers at home.  Look at what children being left at home alone or being raised by strangers has done for our nation.  Children growing up insecure, undisciplined, and lonely. No one loves the children like their own mothers do.  
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good...  
Titus 2:5

He tells men to flee sexual immorality.  Now our nation pursues it and thinks it is great.  Pornography has led to abuse of women and children.  Men are in bondage to that addiction. 
Flee from sexual immorality.  
I Corinthians 6:18

Return to God and His ways.  His ways are so good.  They are wisdom.  Wisdom is a good and healthy thing for a nation and families.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  
Psalm 111:10
