2009 Sucked! How’s 2010 Look?

The day after 911 occurred, several ministry leaders announced, “This is a judgment from the Lord…because of America’s sins of abortion and homosexuality.”

Only hours later, every ministry leader recanted of his statements.

Why did they withdraw their words? Was 911 not a judgment of the Lord? Or was it not a judgment on abortion and homosexuality? Which was it?

Last year, a ministry head prophesied that 2009 would be a disastrous year for the American economy and employment. Then he added, “The economy and employment picture will turn around at the end of the year.”

Why did he add that the economy and employment picture would straighten out at the end of 2009?

The answer for all of the above questions can be expressed in one word: money.

The leaders’ views concerning 911 stopped the phones from ringing. No more kaChing at the cash registers. So, in order to keep fighting the good fight (with money in hand), they stuck their tails between their legs and recanted.

And how much money would you donate if you believed the economy was sliding into a depression without any hope in sight? Not much, right? Thus, the leader added some light at the end of the tunnel. “Keep those checks coming folks! Because everything will turn out well toward the latter part of 2009!”

Hey, all of the secularists and pagans have labeled us church-going Christians as money-hungry whores for years, haven’t they? And guess what? For the most part, they’re right!

2009 sucked, right? And the biggest reason was that finances were sucked out of the economy for not only the present time period, but also for our futures. Trillions of dollars gone!

So what about 2010? How’s the year look?

2010 will make 2009 look like the good old days. You remember the good old days, don’t you? That’s back when everything was much, much better than now!

America’s economic slide will continue in 2010. Many trillions more will be sucked out of the economy. Churches and ministries by the thousands will close their doors – not enough kaChing to keep their engines running.

You see, 911 was a judgment of the Lord, but not on the sins of homosexuality and abortions. It was a judgment on the American Church.

And sadly, the Church has not repented of our money-hungry ways as yet.

For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17)

    I think you are probably right! Your scripture certainly applies.

  2. Marilyn,

    Thanks for you comment.

    But actually, I’d like to be wrong on this one.

  3. Marilyn

    Somehow, I believe that if our churches were doing the job of proclaiming the real gospel, then abortion and homosexuality would not be as prominent as they are.

  4. Marilyn,

    Proverbs 11: 10 “When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices…”

  5. I have to agree with you on this, Larry. Churches (of all kinds –traditional, online, or home-based) need to be preparing their members for a financially difficult and potentially dangerous future.
    Thank God that in whatever circumstance, He is our strong tower, our help in times of trouble.

  6. annadavis,

    Thanks. Good points. It’s one thing to talk about trusting the Lord, but the proof is in the walking not in the talking.
