Biden to UN: US Freedom "Connected" and "Dependent" to Rest of World

Speaking to the United Nations yesterday President Biden claimed the freedom of Americans is connected to and dependent upon the global community.

Our Founding Fathers would be shocked. So should we.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said, "With Joe Biden asleep at the switch, our friends don't trust us, and our enemies are rejoicing."

The globalists are also rejoicing.

A closer look at Biden's America.

Be informed, not misled.

President Biden told the world yesterday, as he spoke to the United Nations for the first time, "To deliver for our own people, we must engage deeply into the rest of the world."

He then defined what it means to "engage deeply."

He pledged to double US financial aid to poorer countries to help them switch to cleaner energy and cope with the "merciless" effects of climate change.

"Doubling" the aid means increasing assistance to about $11.4 billion a year. This after five months ago doubling the amount to $5.7 billion a year.

He said, "We're opening a new era of relentless diplomacy, using the power of our development aid to invest in new ways of lifting people up around the world."

Our Founders saw a city on a hill--Biden sees a village.

Biden claimed the freedom of Americans is connected to and dependent upon the global community---as Hillary is so fond of saying, "It takes a village."

The president told the world: 

"There's a fundamental truth in the 21st century. Within each of our countries and as a global community, our own success is bound up in others succeeding as well. To deliver for our own people, we must engage deeply with the resat of the world. Our security, our prosperity and our very freedoms are interconnected." 

House Foreign Affairs Committee ranking member Michael McCaul highlighted the discrepancies between Biden's words and his actions.

He said, 

"President Biden's speech today does not match his actions. His failed leadership led to the chaotic and deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan that abandoned our partners, angered our NATO allies, and emboldened our adversaries....All the while, China is ratcheting up its aggression in the region and its malign influence around the world. Tough talk is useless if it's followed by weak actions."

Former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said: "President Biden's speech ignored the reality and seriousness of America's threats and enemies. China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Afghanistan, and terrorism to name a few."

"Under Trump," she said, the world knew where we stood. At the UN we took the names of our enemies and had the backs of our allies."

Biden did not mention Russia or China by name in his speech but emphasized his administration's "investments in climate change" and that his agenda aims to create jobs. And he noted that he will "work with Congress" to "double public international financing to help developing nations tackle climate change."

Globalism and the Sirens of  Homer's Odyssey.

President Biden is giving a clarion call for globalism. His call reminds me of the Sirens of Homer's Odyssey which enticed sailors to their destruction with their seductive singing.

Globalism has the same appeal--ultimately destructive.

That's why the Bible teaches nationalism but warns against globalism.

This issue divides our nation because it involves two very different ideologies---two different worldviews.

Nationalism was birthed following the first fall of Babylon.

In Genesis 11:1 we read the whole world shared a common language: "And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech."

Verse 2 says: "Then they said, 'Come let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for our selves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth."

Globalism didn't last. Genesis 11:7-8 tells us what happened next: "Come let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.' So the Lord scattered them from there all over the earth, and they stopped building the city."

The dawn of nationalism upon the destruction of Babylon was a direct effect of the depravity of humanity. When left to our own devices, united together under the global "village" of the left, the culture declines because the people decline spiritually---and ultimately try to usurp the role of God Himself.

The biblical case for national identity is strong. Throughout the Old Testament national borders are recognized and honored. In the New Testament, Acts 17: 26,27 explains why.

"And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation. That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us."

The topic of globalism is introduced in the first book of the Bible and finished in the last book of the Bible.

The Revelation warns of another coming of globalism. A review of Revelation 13:7 reveals that the Antichrist will have "authority over all the world: And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

Clearly, the end times will accommodate a globalist authority.

Further, it's revealed that an occult-like religion will be formed under the Antichrist: (8) "and all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the lamb slain from the foundation of the world."

From Nimrod to current leaders there has been a push toward globalism. Don't buy it.

In Homer's Odyssey, the Greek hero Odysseus escaped the danger of the siren's song by stopping up the ears of the crew with wax so they were deaf to the Siren's seductive songs.

Today God wants us to have ears to hear and eyes to see what He is saying to his people. 

And He speaks through His Word.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
