| "God Bless America" is a well-known phrase throughout the land. The Bible tells us how to receive His blessings. Yet, America is running in the opposite direction.|
By their example, our forefathers taught how to make America great. Our nation was founded "Under God" for the purpose of freedom in worship; a privilege that brings God's blessings every time. Our coins are a reminder of their heart, "In God We Trust"; where God always looks first. The Ten Commandments were their moral guideline; the system set up by God for a better way of life. Men believed so strongly that they fought and died for the cause of America and Pilgrims risked their lives to be a part of it.
Yet, today, we see a new breed of ‘would be’ forefathers who; vote their wallet instead of their conscience, dictate what we should believe to justify their lifestyle, look the other way rather than stand for Godly values, wear as many faces as it takes to reach prominent positions, and attend church to make further business contacts.
If our forefathers could see us now, they'd surely think they'd served and died in vain. The shame that has been brought upon America is heard and seen in the news and is coming into our neighborhood and homes.
For every occasion we remain silent, indifferent, or divided (due to religious differences), we have nobody to blame but ourselves. It is a myth to expect God's continued blessings when our faith is a joke to Him.
Instead of asking God to Bless America, perhaps we should be asking why He would. If we don't care enough to stand, then why should He? Mt.12:25-30, I Sa. 12:16.
It makes no difference whether in our home, school, church, job, community, state, or country ... wherever God is excluded, Satan has free reign (I Ki. 18:18b). In our land of the free, we have set Satan free.
