The year 2020 has been one for the record books. Pre-Covid, the divide between the “haves and have-nots” reached it’s greatest disparity in fifty years. A few months into a world-wide pandemic and that gap has already increased. Billionaire’s wealth has ballooned over 20% in just three months. Meanwhile, the impact of record unemployment and isolation is just beginning to manifest. There has been an increase in ‘deaths of despair’ such as suicides and overdoses. An increase in evictions and poverty are predicted to reach unprecedented levels.

Consider that among the “G-7” nations, the US has the greatest economic inequality, yet it is one of the richest countries in the world. What is going on?! How did the few in power come to control all the wealth? Incredibly, we were warned that this division would happen! The pandemic has become a means to accelerate this economic inequality and iniquity exponentially. Let’s look to God’s Word to learn more.

Is God Blessing America?

This past week was the traditional “State of the Union” speech given by the US president. The purpose of the speech is to give an overview of exactly how the US is fairing these days and lay out an agenda for the future. Trump matched past presidents by touting a great economy, the “military might” of the US and sighted his personally perceived achievements. His facts on these issues are clearly from one perspective, his. He mostly ignored what is really going on in the world and issues that affect the majority of Americans. Trump was sure to end the speech with “God Bless America!” So the question is, “Is God blessing America?”
