John MacArthur: USA Under Divine Judgement

John MacArthur said America is under divine judgement. What has this judgement got to do with Malaysia? But it appears that what he said also applies to Malaysia.

He said “Materialism, drunkard pleasure seeking, arrogant conceit, defiant sinfulness, moral perversion, and corrupt leadership… Do you not see [them] in America?”

Replace "America" with "Malaysia",and these seem to apply equally in Malaysia. If you know what the political, social, economic and religious climate of Malaysia you will see the similarities. Like politics, the Malaysian government is way off mark,leaders are less than truthful, many are in there for their own gains. People are ready to march in the streets to seek reforms in the election processes to be more transparent.

In terms of religion, the Christians are speaking out to protect their rights under the federal constitution. E.g the government prohibits Christians to use the word "Allah" in the Malay Bible and other restrictions on Christians.

Like MacArthur said, God called us to be holy that is "being separated from sinners". But people worship other gods rather the True God of the Bible. No doubt that God will judge our nation for the many sins it is doing.

One positive observation is that Christians of various denominations are coming together to pray for our nation as well as up holding godly members of the government when prayers rallies are held or in their respective churches.

As Christians we are called to be holy and this is what we should do on a personal level. If we have not been holy or close to God, this is the time to begin.
