John MacArthur says that America’s sins are akin to that of Israel’s and the nation was under divine judgment.
â€œAs somebody said a few years ago, if God doesnâ€™t destroy America pretty soon, Heâ€™s gonna have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.â€
According to the Christian Post:
The head pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, Calif., MacArthur identified Israelâ€™s six sins leading to six curses on that nation from Isaiah 5, saying those misdeeds were not isolated to Israel.
â€œI look at Americaâ€¦ people say what is wrong with this country. That is whatâ€™s wrong with this country. Right there. They have rejected the Word, the law of the Lord, the Holy One Himself.â€
Talking about the sin of arrogant conceit, he said America was guilty, too. It is â€œwhen a society does not want to hear from God, but wants to be its own authority where every man does that which is right in his own eyes and feels that he is the ultimate authority, he is the ultimate source of truth,â€ he explained.
MacArthur added that America had corrupt leaders, too. The Hebrew words for â€œheroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks,â€ as mentioned in Isaiah 5:22, referred to leaders, he said. â€œWhat do we have here? We have here, folks, Anthony Weiner type peopleâ€¦corrupt leaders. Is there ever any end to this corruptionâ€¦who literally prostitute their position and justify wicked people for a bribe and take away the rights of the innocent peopleâ€¦politicians and leaders who can be bought.â€
