Since Americans kicked God out of the classroom and started letting 1% of the offended population dictate to the other 99%, principled living has taken a backseat to feeling good. The problem is that feeling good, when facilitated by substances or circumstances, is both fleeting and temporary. That's because endorphins and adrenalin only last so long. We can look back at America's past 40 years and see what "If it feels good, do it" has accomplished in our society. Selfishness beyond belief, millions of dead babies by abortions, trillions of dollars of taxpayer money stolen by our own usurper government that WE (make that YOU, not me) elected.

We cannot leave our homes unlocked anymore, because "if it feels good" then someone will steal our stuff. We cannot leave the keys in our cars parked in front of our homes like we could in the 60s because "if it feels good" then someone will steal our car. We cannot let our children go play in the neighborhood because "if it feels good" then someone will molest, rape, steal and/or murder our children. We're the most obese nation in the history of the planet because "if it feels good" then we're going to eat it. We've become the laziest nation on Earth because "if it feels good" we're going to do nothing but sit there watching TV getting fatter and fatter by the minute. We lie on our taxes because "it feels good" not to pay them. Because we habitually lie on our taxes, unfortunately, habits tend to bleed over into other areas of our lives, and now we lie to our children and to each other because the philosophy of "my truth" and "your truth" establishes that if you can't prove I'm lying, then I'm not lying. If "it feels good" to get our way, then we will lie to whomever about whatever, and our society CONDONES lying now, because "if it feels good, do it."

Again, just for some clarity and perspective, the slogan "If it feels good, do it" did not come from some clever marketing campaign. No, there isn't a marketing professional on the planet who could come up with a slogan that could so impact, so devastate, so destroy the moral and ethical fabric of a once-great nation as "If it feels good, do it" has done to America. So where did the slogan come from, this mantra that has led America into the pit of personal and collective Hell, where our children are at risk every day, where we no longer trust each other, and where we're literally eating ourselves to death and committing suicide with drugs and alcohol?

I said it before, and I'm reminding you now: "Do what thou wilt." Google it for yourself. This is the philosophy reworded into "If it feels good, do it." It is not a healthy philosophy. It is not a Godly philosophy. It is not a loving philosophy. It is the philosophy of Selfishness, and it is the philosophy of Satanists. Now does it make more sense, what's going on in America today? Wrong is right, and right is wrong. Homosexuality is good, and Christianity is bad. Black people have replaced White people as the racists in our country. America is completely upside down now. That is because too many of us bought into the lie from Hell that promises personal pleasure: "If it feels good, do it." Unfortunately, when you buy into Satanic philosophy, you invite all that comes with Satanism and it comes in like a flood.

Faith in God is out the door. Trust in anyone but yourself is gone. Fear reigns in America today, both in and out of our own homes. Socialists have taken over America and those who have bought into the Satanic mantra are responsible for electing them to office, simply because their campaign chanted "Change! Change! Change!" and useful idiots flocked to their side like mindless lemmings.

America is trapped right now in a headlock it sees no way out of. Fortunately, there is a way out of this dilemma. One day, our children CAN roam our neighborhoods without risk, and our children entrusted to us by our Creator WON'T be ripped from their mother's womb because "if it feels good, do it." One day we WILL be able to trust one another, and America will be right-side up rather than upside down, evil will be considered bad and honesty won't be considered weak and God and Christianity and Judaism will be considered good again. Right will be right and wrong will be wrong, and America will get back on her feet morally and ethically, Spiritually and financially. Right now, America is laying down, allowing Evil to take advantage of this once great nation. Americans, in fact, invited this Evil to have its way with us, and continues that open invitation today.

Leaning on our own understanding rather than seeking the greater wisdom held by our Creator has led us into the enemy's bedroom, and there is nothing pretty going on in there right now. We are officially the victims of our own selfishness, and there is only one way out of this nightmare: Principled living must resume in America.

Acceptance of this fact is paramount to any change for the better. Acknowledgement of our Creator is, as every person whose life was torn asunder by this same Enemy has learned in their personal trek back to sanity, vital, crucial, critical, and necessary. As long as we continue to rely on our own limited wisdom, we are easy prey for powers and principalities which are far more powerful than we are individually and collectively. Again, for those who might be completely Spiritually undeveloped or asleep, too many Americans have chosen to run with the Devil. That is why we're not safe in our own homes any longer. That is why our children are not safe at school or in our own neighborhoods, or even in their own beds. That is why our divorce rate is more than 50% today, despite our commitment to "for better or for worse, in sickness and in health." One cannot live a principled life without God's help. One cannot live a principled life and continue to embrace the philosophy "if it feels good, do it." One cannot serve two masters, and unfortunately, embracing Satanic philosophy invites one master in. That is what America has done. That is what America is still doing.

Now you know what to do to change this nightmare America has become. Seek your Creator with all your heart. It's not complicated: pray. Ask Him to reveal Himself then pay attention. He will show you that He is there. Then continue to pray. Talk to one another about what you're thinking. It's called "confession" in some social circles, and it works to help keep the Enemy at bay. It matters not who you think God is or isn't when it comes to drawing closer to Him. Nothing you can say or do or believe will change anything about who God actually is. God isn't a matter of opinion. God simply is. Seek Him and you will find Him. If you want America to become healthy again, the good news is it starts with you. The bad news is that you cannot continue to subscribe to the selfishness of "If it feels good, do it."

It feels good to do the right thing. It feels good to be a man of integrity. It feels good to be submitted to my Creator, asking for and receiving His protection, direction, correction and blessings every day. It feels good to do the right thing, no matter what. The rewards are great. Our children benefit when we live this way, rather than "if it feels good, do it."

I'll talk more about Faith and Trust next...
