Are You An Ungrateful American?

by David J. Stewart | September 2022

Luke 17:17, “And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?”

       Sadly, most Americans are ungrateful to God for His abundant blessings. Billions of people in this world try to survive on less than $1 per day. Think about that. Hundreds of millions of poor people don't even have clean and safe water to drink...

We are so blessed in America, yet look at how we mistreat God with our love for wickedness and rejection of truth. I was born in 1967 in Chicago. When I was a boy, you never saw women all covered in tattoos. You never saw two homosexual men holding hands or kissing in stores. You never heard about children who were confused about the gender. The United States has gone to the Devil, and is dragging our U.S. territories down with us. Guam once upon a time was a nice place to live, but today is a cesspool of homosexuals, transvestites, Korean prostitutes and confused youth about their gender. What happened to their island? I'll tell you what happened, the filth of the ungodly United States corrupted their island!

Don't you dare get upset at Arab nations for calling the United States, “The Great Satan!” We have earned that despicable title by our ungodly love for the ungodly evils of murderous abortion, feminist rebellion, perverse homosexuality, greedy covetousness, deadly counterfeit Bible versions and damnable false religions galore. Go to the average Bible college today, like Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, and you will hear the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation (i.e., Calvinism) being preached to their woefully deceived students. It breaks God's heart!

One of the reasons why most Americans are so ungrateful to God for our liberties, provisions and freedoms is because today's generations have never truly suffered without them! Folks who suffered through The Great Depression of the 1930's, have a different way of thinking than today's spoiled brat generation thinks.

Deuteronomy 6:10-12, “And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.”

The Jews had been blessed mightily by God, but over time they took it all for granted. The Lord heard their cry in Egypt, as the Hebrew children suffered in hard bondage for 400 years of oppression. God raised up His servant and friend, Moses, to deliver the Hebrews for Egypt. God led them into the Wilderness. But instead of praising and thanking God for their freedom, they complained again and again, because they had forgotten what the Lord did for them.

This evidences the woeful danger of permitting a negative thought life to brew in your mind. I receive emails from so many miserable believers, simply because they choose to dwell upon the negative. Not me brother! I suffer 24/7 from spinal cord stenosis and radiculitis in my neck. I got rear-ended by a church bus in 1992. My seat was broken off its hinges! Consequently, I incurred a permanent misalignment of my neck (i.e., Reverse Cervical Curse). Over time, this led to a deteriorating condition known medically as Cervical Degenerative Disk Disease. Basically, that means that my neck is slowly falling apart. Then in 2005 I fell down a mail-slide at work at the U.S. Postal Service, which worsened my existing condition. I started feeling sharp razorblade-like pain radiating down both arms and legs.

Then I underwent two major neck surgeries in 2009 and 2010, the second of which made me much worse, leaving both arms feeling puffed up with air 24/7, the right side of my body feeling half asleep all the time, a limp in my right leg when I walk from a resting position, and constant neuropathic burning throughout my body. I will suffer in chronic pain and burning nerves for the rest of my miserable life. But do you know what, GOD IS SO GOOD!!! I look at that little boy drinking muddy water, the same water that people and animals urinate and defecate in, and I thank God for the clean water that I have to drink. I thank God for the blessings that I have! I could complain, but God deserves better than that. Besides, complaining doesn't change or make anything better. We ALL have so much to be thankful for!!! Psalms 145:9, “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”

I chose for our text Bible verse Luke 17:17, “And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?” Can you imagine having such a horrible incurable disease as leprosy, and then Jesus came along and healed you, but you were so ungrateful that you wouldn't even thank Him. Those nine lepers were selfish! Sadly, that is the way that so many people are, taking and taking and taking, but never showing any gratitude. Luke 6:35, “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” As we just read, God is good to evil and unthankful people. Wow, what an awesome God!!!

As God's children we should be just like our dear God and Savior. If God is good to evil people, then so should we be. One of the reasons why there is such a high rate of recidivism (criminals repapering their crimes) in the United States, is because our prison system abuses, mistreats and ignores inmates. If you just lock a criminal in a 6' by 8' cage for 20 years, letting him or her rot, and then release that broken person, what do you think is going to happen? Love is hard to find in this wicked world. The heathen world sings an awful lot about love, love, love, but in reality there is no love. Our government gives away our hard-earned money to everyone in the world, while millions of U.S. citizens are homeless on the streets of our nation, and millions more one paycheck away from joining the homeless.

Greedy lawyers, corrupt politicians, the lying newsmedia, the ungodly entertainment industry, apostate churches, the fraudulent Federal Reserve banking system, spiritually compromised Bible colleges, false religion, police brutality, the Satanic powers lurking behind Washington D.C. and complacent Americans are all to blame for our broken country. But most of all, our country remains broken because God's children in our churches won't STAND FOR GOD AGAINST EVIL. Psalms 94:16, “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” If today's Bible colleges and the church pastors they train, shameful won't take a stand against evil, falsehoods, corruption in government and doctrinal error, then who will?

I am presently banned from attending the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, and banned from attending Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC). I'm not kidding. Do you know why they have banned me from attending their religious cults (and that is what they are)? It is because I TOLD THE TRUTH. Pastor Jeff Redlin contacted me on August 2, 2022 to let me know that I am not permitted to attend Campus Church. Where dwelling the love of God? I can walk into any tavern, nightclub or house of ill repute in Pensacola, but I am not allowed to walk into Campus Church at PCC. It is because I called the PCC camp out for sinfully bidding Godspeed to the ungodly Bob Jones University (BJU) cult and their damnable Lordship Salvation, Devil's Bibles and false understanding of Bible repentance for salvation. THE TRUTH hurts and Jeff Redlin is holding a wicked grudge against me, because I told him THE TRUTH. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”

Tragically, these ungodly pastors are not thankful to God for their ministries, for if they truly were they would embrace a courageous truth-teller like me, not criticize and shun me away for it. Really. Something is very wrong at PCC, and I've heard so many people say the same thing. They have uncaring pastors at Campus Church who are getting overpaid to merely play church. They get paid to go through the motions for their PCC students, providing religious entertainment and dry boring sermonettes to appease the lukewarm crowd. That is why America is going to Hell.

Those nine lepers failed to give God the glory when Jesus healed them. Today we have a cure for leprosy, but back then they didn't. If you had leprosy you were put outside the city gate, and that is where you lived for the rest of your life until you died. When I lived on Guam, I used to enjoy playing my Hawaiian steel guitar down at Ypao Beach in lower Tumon. There are signs displayed at Ypao Beach, letting visitors know that a century ago Ypao was a leper colony! We are so blessed in these modern times. As recently as 1900 there was no cure for leprosy! The modern medical discovery of penicillin didn't come along until about 1939. Thank God for penicillin!

Dear reader, I could mention so many other things in this article about how blessed we are in America. I THANK GOD for His goodness and love. It is sad to see America committing suicide. I listened to a needful sermon today by Pastor Jeff Owens called: “Suicidal America.” In case you don't know, there has been an ongoing Satanic plot to undermine, corrupt and destroy our nation ever since it's inception in 1776. Satan is the evil god of this ungodly world (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4). The Devil has no will for your life, except to hinder you from doing God's will. Satan wants only to kill, steal and destroy your life, your family and everything that you hold near and dear. John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

All this intentional confusion being caused by the government, entertainment industry and the ungodly mainstream media is an intentional plot to destroy America's families. The strength of any nation is its individual families! The open U.S. borders for the past half century is intentional, to destroy our nation. If you doubt what I say, read what the first insane head of the World Health Organization (WHO) said in 1954...

“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.”
—George Brock Chisholm, in a Speech given at the, Conference on Education, Asilomar, California, September 11, 1954

Who wants world government? Not any freedom-loving Americans! Do you remember Genesis 11:1-11 about the Tower of Babel? I'll tell you who wants world government, the Devil! It is called the, “New World Order” (and it is here dear reader, forcing its way into every facet of our lives). But don't fret dear friend. Our precious Savior and Lord told us in John 16:33 that we would suffer tribulation in this crazy world of sin, but Jesus said to: “BE OF GOOD CHEER,” because we know that Christ overcame sin and death when He resurrected triumphant from the dead on the third day. We serve a risen Savior!!!

So be grateful dear reader at all times to your wonderful God. 1st Thessalonians 5:18, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” The Bible doesn't tell us to be thankful “for” everything; but rather, “in” everything. Amen and amen! No matter what you may be going through dear friend, never stop being appreciative, full of praise and thankful toward our good, merciful and faithful God. Jesus is precious!!!

The Gift Of Eternal Life Is Wrapped In The Wonderful Package Of Jesus
