Do you share my view that America was founded on Judea-Christian Principles? It’s my perception that most of our Nation’s original laws are based on Biblical truth and many of them on the Ten Commandments – which are still engraved on the walls of the Supreme Court and the Capital.
How many times have you read an e-mail or a blog or simply thought to yourself something like – the world in general is going to hell in a hand-basket. Closer to home do you share my perception that America has lost its moral base and has strayed far from the principles of the Founding Fathers? Are we on a secular, politically correct yet morally bankrupt slippery slope from which there is no return?
Our friend John Maxwell often says that a company or an organization rises and falls on the ability and lid of its leadership. Personally I don’t think you have to look any further than our National “leaders” to see the problem.
Some mornings as Marty and I read the Bible and go through our Prayer List I remember God’s Promise in II Chronicles 7:14 “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” I’ll begin to pray and I think realistically what are the chances that the greater population of America will ever do this? Are we too far gone as a Nation to ever turn from our current ways? It is simply too late for America and the World we live in?
Then I remember God’s Promise that He will not forsake His Children and that He is coming soon.
