--I check this box, indicating that after reading the gospel tract, The State of Michigan's Stimulus Package for the Great Depression, I have just repented of my sins, and have asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me. I desire now to get baptized, and to faithfully serve the Lord. Please pray for me, and send me a free Bible Study Booklet to help me grow as a Christian.

         The word stimulus means, “something that rouses or incites to activity” (Merriam-Webster’s 11th Collegiate Dictionary).  Is it a big package of money that America needs to be stimulated, and thus prosper once again?  If that is what you think, then consider this:  “But they that will be RICH fall into TEMPTATION and a snare, and into many foolish and HURTFUL LUSTS, which drown men in DESTRUCTION and perdition.  For the LOVE of MONEY is the ROOT of all EVIL: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and PIERCED themselves through with many SORROWS” (Holy Bible, 1 Timothy 6:9-10, KJV).

America has abounded — not only with opportunities to make a lot of money; but also with sorrow, because of broken lives and homes from sin.


The Great Depression ended

the Roaring Twenties — which

was a time of much sin.


During the 1920’s, when making and selling liquor was outlawed, gangsters like Al Capone, and Bonnie & Clyde, roamed the cities and country sides committing crimes.  Making and selling alcohol became big business for gangsters, and some people secretly admired them — but the judgment of God finally fell upon America.  On October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed in the United States, and financial collapse followed around the world.  The very next summer (1930), the Dust Bowl days began.


The State of Michigan’s Stimulus Package for the Great Depression


With such devastating things happen-ing, the Legislature of the State of Michigan did not offer its residents extra money to spend, but humbly pointed them back toward God’s Laws.  The next year, on September 18, 1931, the following laws went into effect:


ABORTION Any person who causes the death of a quick child from the use of MEDICINE or INSTRUMENT shall be guilty of manslaughter. (750.323)


Notice how they were honest enough to admit that a baby in the womb is a quick child (a living child) — not a fetus.  Was abortion a problem way back then?  Yes, it was.  In 1916, Margaret Sanger (known as the mother of Planned Parenthood), wrote in Family Limitation, “No one can doubt that there are TIMES when an ABORTION is JUSTIFIABLE but they will become unnecessary when care is taken to prevent conception” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger).  Well, she was wrong, because when conception was hindered — lust and immorality only increased.  And because birth control does not always work, abortions increased — not decreased.  Abortion has always been used as the ultimate birth control method of the immoral.  It is their god.

September 18, 1931, was also the effective date of another law enacted by the Michigan State Legislature:


ADULTERY Any person who shall commit adultery shall be guilty of a FELONY. (750.30)


Samuel Schmalhausen, in October of 1928, wrote about conventional marriage being purged from its limitations (meaning having affection and children only with your spouse) (http://ehistory.osu.edu/osu/mmh/clash/NewWoman/Documents/sexamongmoderns.htm).  As a result, adultery increased; but God said, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Holy Bible, Exodus 20:14, KJV).

There was another horrible sin increasing in the 1920’s.  Actor William Haines, who was openly living in sodomy, was regularly named in the media as the #1 Male Box-Office Draw.  Actress Mae West, was an early advocate for sodomite rights.  God says that sodomy is not a right, but an abominable sin against nature.  “For this cause God gave them up unto VILE AFFECTIONS: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is AGAINST NATURE:  And likewise also the men, leaving the NATURAL USE of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is UNSEEMLY” (Holy Bible, Romans 1:26-27, KJV).  So September 18, 1931, was also the effective date of another law enacted by the Michigan State Legislature:


SODOMY Any person who shall commit the ABOMINABLE and DESTESTABLE crime against nature either with mankind or with any animal shall be guilty of a FELONY.(750.158)


When foolish people try to put the Creator out of their minds, they often still use His name daily — in swearing and cursing.  “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain” (Holy Bible, Exodus 20:7, KJV).  So September 18, 1931, was also the effective date of another law enacted by the Michigan State Legislature:


SWEARING Any person who has arrived at the age of discretion, who shall profanely CURSE or DAMN or SWEAR by the name of God, Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.  (750.103)


Follow the lead of the 1931 Michigan Legislators, and let the present financial and spiritual crisis move you to humility and repentance.  “...humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (Holy Bible, 2 Chronicles 7:14, KJV). 

Bow your head and repent right now:  “Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God, God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and I repent of my sin and turn to you right now.  I do believe that you died on the cross for me, and shed your precious blood to pay my sin debt, and I do believe that you arose from the grave the third day.  I do ask you to save me and to use my life now for your glory.  I am trusting in you alone to save me and take me to heaven.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

 Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to

            save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
