The Enemy

The enemy is always gathering to come against us.  The enemy is doing exactly what the enemy is supposed to do.  The enemy is sizing us up and will seize any opportunity to attack.  Dont be surprised or even alarmed when you see the enemy poised to raid your life.  As a matter of fact the enemy will even set up camp in your backyard.  If there were no enemy there would never be a victory!  So yes there is even a reason to be thankful for enemies. 

1 Samuel 17:1
Now the Philistines gathered their armies for battle. And they were gathered...., and encamped...

Tomorrow the rest of the story!

20/20 Vision

Gods Perspective vs. My Perspective

What a remarkable thought that brings great encouragement.  "...God sees not as man sees..."  I Sam. 16:7.  His view is eternal, His view internal, His view is beginning and ending.  My view is temporal, my view is external and my view is only immediate.  Who has the better perspective?  All too often I think I do.  Real 20/20 vision is when we see as God sees.  Lord grant us today to see as you see!

When You Think You Have It Bad...

Have you ever looked at you life and you circumstances and bemoaned how horrible it is?  When you think you have it bad just look around.  The reality is, there is always someone, somewhere in situations that make ours look miniscule.   Thats not to say that our battle is not significant it just helps with keeping the perspective.  Listen to what Paul endured:

2 Corinthians 11:23-27
"...more imprisonments, with countless beatings, and often near death. Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I was adrift at sea; on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers; in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure."

So I guess my life is coasting along pretty smoothly.  I also know that when the proverbial wheel runs off in my life; and I know it will; God is able to carry me through!

Rely on God

Day 20 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation? 
Psalm 20:7
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
That is has all to often been our fallback.  As Americans we trust in our abilities, our might, our power and authority.  My son Caleb serves in the US Airforce and I could not be any prouder of his accomplishments early in his career.  He has excelled and has been honored several times for his outstanding efforts.  In an interview with the base newspaper listen to his responses.

"Since arriving at McConnell and the fuels flight," said Master Sgt. Joseph Dudley, 22nd Logistic Readiness Squadron fuels management flight operations section chief, "Hubbard has continued to lead the way and do great things, standing out among his peers."
Who is the most positive influence in your life and why? My father is the most positive influence on my life. He has and always will be my hero. He is not only the ultimate example of an excellent dad, but a spiritual leader and wise guide. He has given me guidance and direction physically, mentally and spiritually through wisdom, advice and his own life. 
If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?I would like to meet the biblical Joshua and Caleb because they stood up for what they believed in with an unshakable faith and fortitude, even when their peers were willing to give up."

Now certainly the answer about my influence puffed me up, however his response to the last question made me the proudest. 
We are on this day praying for our militaries protection as they serve around the globe and praying that a spiritual awakening would change the perception of America in the world.  Instead of pushing filth and garbage via Hollywood, instead of being a mass producer of porn, instead of being a drug dependent culture, instead of relying on our might and strength may we once again rely on the Power of God!

Awaken US!

Day 19 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  America needs a Spiritual Awakening.  The Great Awakening of the early 1700's led by the influence of men like Jonathan Edwards and the Second Great Awakening led by the influence of men like Charles Finney are nothing but history that we can read about.  We need a fresh heaven sent Holy Ghost awakening for this generation one that will turn us upside down and inside out.   An awakening that is produced by God with far reaching and long lasting effects.   We dont need an emotional frenzy stirred up by another false teacher who is interested in padding his pockects.  We need a awakening that sets both the pulpits and pews of America on fire!  Revive Us Oh God!  Awaken us by your Spirit!  Reveal sin and may we be willing to repent running to you seeking forgiveness, mercy and grace.  Strip away all the junk in our lives that gets in the way.  Dear God shake us, move us from our complacency and apathy.  Restore righteousness in us, our communities and our nation! 

Psalm 85:1-13
Lord , you were favorable to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.  You forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin. Selah  You withdrew all your wrath; you turned from your hot anger.   Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!   Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger to all generations?  Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?  Show us your steadfast love, O Lord , and grant us your salvation.   Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.  Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.   Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.  Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.  Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.   Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.

Day 18 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation? There is little unity in America today and quite honestly we are divided because there is little to be unified over.  The familes are falling apart, churches are splitting wide open, neighbors are at odds, communities are crumbling, states are succumbing to ungodly pressures and Washington has imploded.   There is only one unifying factor that will ever bring about real hope and change...that is the person of Jesus Christ.  As Christ pleaded in His prayer in John 17.

"When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you,  since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him.  And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.  I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.  And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.    “I have manifested your name to the people   whom you gave me out of the world.   Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.  Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you.  For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.  I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.  All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.  And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.  While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.  But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.  I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.  Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.  As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.  And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.    “I do not   ask for these only, but also for those   who will believe in me through their word,  that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one,  I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.  Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.  O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me.  I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

Join us as we participate in a Nationwide event of Hope that is our only hope of unity in Christ alone.

Day 17 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Sometimes we look for a complex answer for a complex problem when in reality the answer is simple.  My wife always gives me a big KISS before I speak.  Keep It Simple Stupid! :)  You get the idea.  Americas problems are certainly complex!  Oh what a tangled web we have woven.  Yet the solution is quit simple.  The gospel provides the solution and spiritual growth/discipleship keeps us focused and on the right path. 
Take the gospel and share it.  If you have never heard the gospel consider it today.  If you have embrassed the gospel keep growing or your growth will be stunted and your effectiveness stifled.  
Here is the gospel:
Your dead in tresspasses and sin (Eph 2:1)

You are not a good person (Rom 3:10)

You are sinful (Rom 3:23)

The penalty of all the above is physical and spiritual death (Rom 6:23, 5:8)

The solution is for you to repent turn from your sin and self and receive what Christ did for you (Rom 5:12, John 3:16)

Cry out to God in prayer, repent of your wickedness and sin and receive the gift of salvation made possible by Jesus Christ only (John 14:6)

Simple solution to complex problems.  Costly solution to your eternal problem!

Brokeness Epedimic

Brokeness Epedimic
Day 16 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?   Families are broken by divorce, abuse, death and addictions;  the unemployment line is growing; cancer is an everyday word.  When will the maddess end?  Is there a solution for the epedimic of brokeness?   It is sweeping America, what can we do?

Psalm 119:114
You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.

There is hope for you and there is hope for America!

Self Destruct or Spirit Walk?

Self Destruct or Spirit Walk?
Day 15 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  What are you full of?  Self or the Spirit?  We are called to walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
It sure is easy to walk for self because then I can do what self wants.  The result is self destruction.  Reminds me of this for you old time Mission Impossible fans:

Unfortunately America is on a path of self destruction but that doesnt mean that we as individuals have to follow suit!

Day 14 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  On day 14 we are simply thanking God.  We dont have to wait until Thanksgiving Day to thank the Lord.  Why are you thankful today?
Psalm 100:1-5
Make a joyful noise to the Lord , all the earth!   Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!  Know that the Lord , he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.   Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!   For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Workers Needed!

Day 12 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation? Our prayer today is for an increase in missions.   There were an estimated 400,000 international missionaries sent by Christians in 2010.  The US still lead the way with 127,000 or the 400,000.  Yet the work is still unfinished.  The 100 largest unreached people groups totals nearly 1.7 billion people.  That is just those who have never been reached with the gospel.  With a world population of 7 billion that are several million more who are without hope.  You can be involved in missions where you are or across the globe.  There is a shortage of workers!
Luke 10:2
Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

Praying for Americas Leaders

Day 11 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Regardless of our political persuasion or our view of any related political position we are admonished to pray for those in positions of authority.  There are two glaring benefits to our earnest prayers over all in authority.             (I Timothy 2:1-4) The first benefit is ours...we get to lead a peaceable life potentially unharassed and or controlled by the government.  Again we would all have to agree the less government the better, then it would be a Theocracy-God in complete control.  The second and greater benefit is the salvation of leadership.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  Pray that God would bring to salvation all who are in authority over us. 

I Timothy 2:1-4
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Poverty and Laziness

Day 11 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  We are praying today that God will bring many out of poverty, bless our communities with honest business opportunities and break the wicked spirit of laziness that has a choke hold on many!  There may be nothing more crippling or humiliating than losing your job, your financial security and wondering where you will get the resources to feed, cloth and care for your family and yourself.  Thousands upon thousands across America are facing that today.   There are those who have been mired in destitution and poverty for a lifetime and for some even generations in their family.  The recent economic downturn has stripped some of their lifetime investments.  Financial blessings and prosperity are like a two edged sword.  On the one hand we can enjoy all that comes with those blessings, yet on the other hand we often forget God even abandoning Him because we become self sufficient.  Laziness is another side of the coin that many dont want to talk about.  There are thousands over and over again who are living off assistance because they are genuinely lazy.  Thats not to say that assiatance in one form or another isnt needed but becoming addicted to assistance because of laziness is a sin!  Listen to what scripture says. 

Proverbs 21:13
Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.
Proverbs 19:15
Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep, and an idle person will suffer hunger.
Proverbs 10:4
A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.
1 Timothy 5:8
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Unity not Coexist

Day 10 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Everyone is keenly aware of the lack of unity in Washington these days but I wonder how keenly aware we are of the lack of unity in many churches.  The church for the first few decades of our American culture was the backbone and center of community action.  Then false teaching and bickering amounst the church members began to split churches, communities and families.  It is time unity returned.  Let me make it very clear there is a huge difference between biblical unity and the absolute godless fade coexist that is sweeping the religious community.  Listen to the words of scripture. 
Ephesians 4:1-6
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Don't miss the fact that in order for unity to abound we must all adhere to one way.
John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
We must be Christocentric in all we do for unity to bind us together.  Are you for your way or Gods way.  The national spiritual crisis we are currently entangled in would easily be defused with a good dose of unity.  It would certainly solve the Washington crisis!

Hell is real...The Gospel saves!

Day 9 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  We not only have a national spiritual crisis but there is a deep seeded personal spiritual crisis in the lives of many individuals.  The greatest crisis is the rejection of the gospel and complete daily surrender to Christ being Lord of our lives.  No doubt you have family members, friends, coworkers, neighbors and school mates that you know are in this condition.  They are  blinded to the truth of the gospel by the god(satan) of this world. 
2 Corinthians 4:4
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. Are you burdened over the fact that someone you know and love may spend eternity separated from God in hell?  If you know Christ you pocess the answer.  Not only should you pray for them but you should with great love, compassion and gentleness tell them the truth of the gospel message...their eternity is at stake!  There is no one good no not one (Rom 3:10).  All have sinned (Rom. 3:23). The penalty of breaking Gods law, which we all have done,  is death; physically and spiritually which is separation from God forever (Rom. 6:23).  There is no hope apart from crying out to God, repenting of your wicked ways, turning from sin and self and giving Him control.  All made possible because of the death, burial and ressurection of Jesus Christ.  If you hope is in this world alone you are of all men most miserable (I Cor. 15).  Go tell somebody before its too late!

Monday, October 14, 2013


Day 8 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Conflicts abound in our lives, our communities, our nation and world largely due to the fact we are unwilling to forgive.  Who has done you wrong that you just cannot forgive and quite honestly you dont want to?  Family member, friend, coworker, neighbor...who is it.  No doubt they were wrong but who is bearing the albatross of unforgiveness and maybe even the seed of bitterness that is eating you up?  With God's help you can forgive, don't delay forgive today and walk free.  Remember the words of Jesus.

Matthew 6:14-15
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,  but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Sunday, October 13, 2013


Day 7 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  One of our greatest personal and national downfalls is our greed for more.  We seemingly are never satisfied with what we have.  We have to have the latest this or that, then we are satisfied mometarily until the fashion changes or the latest home decor or electronic gadet comes to the local thing store.  Today lets just stop and be thankful; not just for what we have but who we are in Christ.  

Psalm 118:21
I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation.

Deplorable Activity

Day 6 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Spiritual brokeness accentuates the absolute depravity of the human heart and mind.  The result of mans depravity are deeds of wickedness against the innocent.  One such deed is the deplorable activity of human trafficking.   Pray that God will protect innocent girls and boys from such a life.  Also pray that those caught up in trafficing activity would be convicted of thier sin and gloriously changed.  By the way this is not a far away problem.  Its in our backyard.  May God have mercy on our depravity.

Leviticus 19:29
“Do not profane your daughter by making her a prostitute, lest the land fall into prostitution and the land become full of depravity.

Fasting for Our Nation

Today begins 21 days of Prayer and Fasting.  A Solemn Assembly will conclude these 21 days on October 26 and 27.  Everyone can participate in prayer and fasting.

What is Spiritual Fasting?
In most cases, a spiritual fast involves abstaining from food while focusing on prayer. This can mean refraining from snacks between meals, skipping one or two meals a day, abstaining only from certain foods, or a total fast from all food for an entire day or longer.For medical reasons, some people may not be able to fast from food altogether. They may choose to abstain only from certain foods, like sugar or chocolate, or from something other than food. In truth, believers can fast from anything. Doing without something temporarily, such as television or soda, as a way of redirecting our focus from earthly things toward God, can also be considered a spiritual fast.

We are burdened over the spiritual condition of our nation, state and communities.  We are asking God to send a spiritual awakening. 

Joel 1:14 ESV
Consecrate a fast; call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord .

Broken Families

Day 2 of the 21 days of prayer and fasting.  Todays prayer focus is the family pray that marriages and brokeness in family relationships with be restored.  Our culture is in a family crisis and the breakdown of the family unit has a tremendous impact on the spiritual breakdown of our nation.  We are calling for a Solemn Assembly on October 26 and 27.  We will be gathering for public prayer and praise crying out to God pleading for forgiveness of the sins of our nation.  We have forsaken Him.  Join us October 26 at 6pm at the Ebenezer Baptist Church.  We are also asking every church to conduct a Solemn Assembly on Sunday morning the 27th.  We need the mercy of God not the judgment we deserve. 

Joel 2:13b

...Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;...

Crumbling Church

Day 3 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Today we are praying for our churches.  The church has historically been the place where truth has been spoken and the gospel proclaimed.  Unfortunately ungodly, unbiblical liberal theology has crept into many pulpits and the church is no longer a spiritual influence.  Churches need to be filled with people, but numerical growth is worthless if there is no real spiritual food and spiritual growth.  We need a spiritual awakening in the churches across America. 

1 Peter 4:17 ESV
For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?


Day 4 of 21 Days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  Our nation is in a spiritual crisis and one of effects of this spiritual vaccum  is addictions.  We are praying today specifically for those who are caught up in addictions.  The bondage of addiction is crippling individuals, families, communities and our culture.  There is relational, financial, spiritual and physical costs to adddictions.  Drug, alcohol and pornography addictions are choking out life.  Dependency on any harmful subtance or activity is detrimental and devastating.  If you are caught up in an addiction or you have a family member or friend that is caught up in an addictive lifestyle know that you are being prayed for today.  But there is even better news, in Christ and by the Spirit of God living in you, you can be free!  There is hope! 

John 8:34-36 ESV
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin.  The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever.  So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Have Mercy

Have Mercy On Us God!
Day 5 of 21 days of prayer and fasting.  What will you commit to fast today so as to focus on crying out to God for the spiritual broken condition of our nation?  There are a number of moral and spiritual crisis that are afflicting our nation, unfortunantely the list grows daily.  The 1973 landmark case of Roe v Wade ussered in a new era of open acceptance of genocide on innocent unborn children.  As a nation we mock the creator who knits a child in the womb of a mother. (Psa. 139:13).  The recent striking down of Defense of Marriage Act likewise mocks God because it was God himself who ordained marriage in the very beginning as the foundation for all humanity.  Romans 1 certainly gives a clear picture of where we have come. The Supreme Court's DOMA decision, Liberty Councils lead attorney said, "was not reflective of "natural law, biblical law or common sense; it is contrary to the natural created order of God almighty."  By the way that is just the tip of the iceburg.
May God have mercy on us!  Cry out to God for His mercy endureth forever!

A Balancing Act

A Balancing Act

We are called to be salt and light in the world (Matt. 5) and we are to be in the world but not of the world, falling in love with it (I John 2) and we are also admonished in (II Cor. 6) to be separate.  We are called by Christ to be an influence but not be influenced.  Walk the balance beam holding you candle and letting your light shine, you have a hope and a peace to offer the world they are clamouring to find.  Beware of ungodly influences that can tarnish your thinking, reputation and testimony.

James 1:27
"...  keep oneself unspotted and uncontaminated from the world."

Thursday, October 3, 2013



That is the heart of Americas problem.  That is the heart of our problem in life.  We have simply rejected God and His way of doing things.  How often do we find ourselves living out Frank Sinatras infamous song...I did it my way! 

1 Samuel 8:7 ESV
And the Lord said to Samuel, “Obey the voice of the people in all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them.

Oh No We Are Doomed

Oh No What Are We Going To Do?

Long before government existed the eternal God of the universe was.  He is the great I Am!  Without Him nothing exists. That means the universe is still running in an ordely fashion while human government that desires to mock God and His very existance runs amuck!  Oh no what should we do?  Run for the hills?  NO....RUN INTO THE ARMS OF THE EVERLASTING, ALMIGHTY, ETERNAL CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.  Let the government fail, believe it or not Washington won't be governing the universe in eternity.  It is in Jesus Christ we have hope becuase He Is!

Colossians 1:15-18
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

God warned that human government would be disasterous in I Samuel 8.  We wanted a human king to rule over us and take care of us from cradle to grave.  Well...that is exactly what godless leaders will do for a people...put them under.  Turn to God America and quit looking for another government bailout!
