Are We Really on the Verge of a Second Civil War?

And ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. – Matthew 24:6

Victor Davis Hanson, in National Review, writes of the “Origins of Our Second Civil War.” In his explanation of how the stage has been set, he cites the following: Globalization, High Tech, The Campus, Illegal Immigration, and of course places as much blame as possible on Barack Obama.

Everything that he points out is mostly true and certainly the cause of a point in our history when anger and hatred are at a fever pitch.

I was shocked to read one of Hanson’s remedies to this civil war generating hatred and anger: “Religious and spiritual reawakening is crucial.”

Most often such suggestions for a cure to the evils and sinful lives that Americans lead and live is taboo from the written words of the press. In this case, the reference is quite generic and a bit less toxic to those who find Yahweh as the curse and not the cure.

What we are seeing in our society is the fruit of our labors of the man-god’s building with a definite denial, blindness, and determination to find the right answers from the corrupt government that crafts the “Bread and Circuses” that attempt to keep us all in line. So, are the Bread and Circus owners deliberately working to set the stage of “our second civil war?” Or have they, like so many other Americans, lost their focus on the moral compass of which our Creator provides to those wanting to take advantage of it? You’ll have to decide the answer to that.

Mr. Hanson refers to the Sermon on the Mount as an example of these modern-day troubles as a warning of what our future might look like. It should be pointed out that reading the Sermon on the Mount might provide some historical perspective, fully understanding cannot be achieved unless one is filled with the Spirit of Truth that guides and convicts.

Which brings us to the root cause of a belief that the U.S. is on the verge of a second civil war. There are just too many people looking to government and man-gods for answers. Those answers can never come from there because the foundation of their existence is full of sin and corruption and not on God their Creator.

As with the Sermon on the Mount, the words are incomplete unless Yahweh’s Spirit is leading the way (Hebrews 4:12). That leadership, unlike that of man’s, is voluntary. It requires us as individuals to reach out and take it. It’s a free gift and the only gift that can stop a second civil war.
