Ben Carson Delivers the Ezekiel Warning

Ben Carson delivered at least part of the Ezekiel warning to the United States in his speech at the Republican convention last night. You be the judge. Here is what he said:

"The secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation, and if we continue to allow them to take God out of our lives, God will remove Himself from us, we will not be blessed, and our nation will go down the tubes, and we will be responsible for that. We don't want that to happen."

Though his message about God letting our nation go down the tubes was short and lacking in detail, probably more Americans heard it than heard any of the messages of the Church of God in recent years. In that sense, he has reached more people, in 26 seconds, than we have with the core of God's warning message.

That should be a prod to us. If we in the Church of God do not do the job God has given us of warning the people, to our shame, God may reject us and find someone else to do it. And we will bear our guilt.

Here is a link to a site with a video of Ben Carson's speech. The statement I quoted above starts at the 5 minute, 10 second point:

Hello author,
It is a sad thing that a few like Ben Carson, who can see what ignoring God "might bring on" this USA, and yet not see that it is already happening and has been for a few years now. (Matt. 24:7-8 is prophecy) The "beginning of sorrows" has already long since begun, (all these "natural disasters")and is now increasing because of the sinful ways of the people in the nation--but especially the leaders. I have an article at with the title of "Increasing Sorrows" for anyone who may be interested.
Thanks for your article,
