Shane Idleman on A Biblical Perspective on the Destabilization of America

It seems that everyone is sensing the destabilization of America. Even billionaire Elon Musk recently commented, “We must get to Mars. Civilization isn’t looking all that stable here.”


Books could be written on how we got to this point, but let me offer just a few thoughts from a biblical perspective. You can also hear the sermon, “The Destabilization of America,” here.

Destabilization by false information. Unless you have beaten Musk to the punch and have been on Mars for the last decade, you have clearly seen how many in the secular media purposely create false narratives and use lies and carefully edited half-truths to push their agenda. They withhold information, such as all the black police officers who have been killed recently, and deliberately fail to highlight the positives alongside the negatives, creating the illusion of an imbalance where one does not exist.

For example, two years ago, a deputy sheriff who attends our church had to pull over on the 101 freeway and resuscitate a black female suffering from a drug overdose. I tried to contact several news outlets, but no one wanted to run the story. The lesson here is to be very careful about where we get our information.

Much of the media is owned by large corporations who would love to see America fail. One recent headline read, “CNN sticks to liberal script, ignores black police officers killed in riots.” This is appalling and should not be tolerated.

Destabilization by the enemy within. Many are coming to believe that what we are witnessing is an orchestrated attempt to destroy our economy and disrupt the November elections. Peaceful protests are infiltrated by hate groups paid by individuals with deep pockets to create confusion and chaos.

Why is there such a huge upheaval? It’s simple. The current administration is working to minimize the murdering of babies. They are also very concerned about race issues and trying to do the right thing the right way. They are being a terror to terrorists and are bringing the Bible and God back to Washington and the nation’s schools. They want to remove the pulpit-silencing Johnson Amendment.

Christians with godly values are being promoted to some of the highest offices in America. The president is surrounding himself with godly counsel. There is a love for Israel. They are honoring hard work and minimizing free handouts. The list of biblical accomplishments is impressive. Now you see what the real battle is: A battle for the soul of our nation.

God doesn’t judge a nation based on the character of one man; He judges it based on the spiritual health of its people. Never forget that.

Destabilization by intolerability: Those waving banners of tolerance are often the most intolerant of those who oppose them, as one Birmingham pastor recently discovered. Tony Perkins writes, “A handful of likes were all it took to make the biggest church in Alabama homeless.”

Believe it or not, “a local English teacher decided to catalogue” the pastor’s likes on Facebook and then share them with the press. This motivated the local high schools to revoke the lease of the church. Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy of school district “leaders” and teachers who behave in this manner while crying out for tolerance and justice?

Destabilization with class warfare: Even though Rasmussen recently reported that there is a 40% approval rate for our president among black voters, if you listen to the secular media, you would think that it’s closer to 4%. Yes, racism runs deep in America, but only a changed heart can solve that.

And keep in mind that revisionists began to rewrite history many years ago, portraying all white people as racists. The actual numbers are very small; the vast majority are not racists, and there are black racists too. We realize that we are all Americans and must unite against our common enemy. It’s a sin problem, not a skin problem.

White people feel the dynamic too. There are certain places in my community such as parks where I can no longer go for fear of being profiled because the media created a false narrative. You won’t find it in many of the modern history books, but the truth is that many of the Founding Fathers in America abhorred slavery and fought against it.
