Yes, it is important to thank God, even during bad times, and even when you receive punishment from God for your sins. You know that God punishes for every sin, even for those that God forgives you. God is a fair God, so if you commit premarital sex, then you will suffer for it, even if God forgives you after you repent. Otherwise, it would not be fair for your friend who marries as a virgin, would it? God is fair. God is just. God may allow you into Heaven, but you will suffer on earth for every little sin that you commit. God is fair. God is just.
This explains why there is so much failure in the USA right now.
Alzheimer drugs are failing.
Only God can give success to drug research that will save lives. God will not give drug success, if God intends to punish people who have a lot of adultery or commit other sins by sending Alzheimer’s Disease as a punishment that will cause tremendous suffering and slow painful and emotionally draining death for self and family.
Cancer drugs are failing.
If God wants to punish Americans (Non-Christians and Christians!) for their sins (even after forgiving them and allowing them into Heaven) on this earth, then, obviously, God’s not going to give success to drugs that will cure cancer. God is the Giver of Life. God can develop a cancer drug, tomorrow, through one of tens of thousands of researchers, worldwide, to cure cancer, once for all. But God refuses to do this, because God is using cancer to punish sinners (even repentant sinners!). God is just. God is fair.
Sins of the fathers shall visit the children….the Holy Book states.
If you sleep around and go to Heaven without suffering, when your neighbor Ned does not sleep around, then God would not be fair, would He?
You may laugh at Ned on Simpsons, but God is fair and God is just, and God will do right by “Ned’s” of America, who want to follow God’s Word. When you have cancer and suffer miserably, reflect on this. God is fair. God is just.
God is the source of all blessing. It is important to go back to the Bible and RESPECT God by illegalizing homosexuality and arresting homosexuals in the United States, following the moral principles of the Word of God.
What if your daughter becomes a lesbian because of permissive pro-gay laws of the United States of America?
Current pro-gay laws of the United States of America makes it legal to persecute Christians and Christian colleges. It is important to illegalize homosexuality and arrest homosexuals.
It is a zero sum game. Either homosexuals win or Bible-believing Christians win. Both cannot win. Bible is directly opposed to homosexuality.
