We’ve come a long way since 1954 when President Eisenhower signed legislation inserting
after the words,
“millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty”.
But today we have become more concerned about offending atheists and false religions than we have about offending God.
How can we expect the blessings of God if we go from being a God-fearing nation to a God forsaking nation? What started out as gradual departure has turned into a great falling away! There is a blatant disregard for God in our nation.
All of a sudden God has become unconstitutional and the foundation that this great nation was built upon is crumbling. We’ve become more concerned about pleasing:
- Atheists than the Almighty!
- Muslims than the Master!
- Infidels than the Infinite!
- Sinners than the Savior!
- Legalists than the Lord!
America was established as
“One Nation Under God”
but we have compromised our beliefs! There is a conscious effort on the part of many that call themselves
to throw God out of our nation.
When we, as a nation, turn our backs on God we turn our backs on freedom.
Instead of being the land of the free and the home of the brave we will become a nation bound by sin and wickedness. Instead of crying,
“God bless America”
we should be crying,
“So help us God!”
God has honored America because America honored God. But how much longer will He put up with our shame and disgrace?
It is righteousness that has made us a nation of purple mountain majesties and amber waves of grain. It is righteousness that has made us the land of the free and the home of the brave!
We must pray for our nation! We must pray for a return to biblical values! We must pray for our nation to repent of its sins and return to God.
Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
