The late, great Ronald Reagan once said “that if we ever stop being one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under!” Take a good look around you at American society, not as Democrats or Republicans, but as the citizens of a nation blessed above all others in history. Why have we suddenly found ourselves, with the mightiest military in world history, mired in little wars that we can’t seem to outright win? Why do we see so much corruption in government, business, and our public and private lives? Why do we insist on “tolerating” out-and-out SIN while trying to make excuses for it as some kind of disease or syndrome? We think nothing of watching our God-given sacraments perverted beyond all reason? Gay marriage, anyone? We are celebrating the homosexual lifestyle that God, Himself, calls an abomination…why? We have allowed atheists, people who do not even believe in God, to remove Him from our schools and from our public discourse. We have allowed these people, through social activist courts, to try and eradicate our Creator from our view. This very Creator was paid homage to by our founding fathers in the documents and buildings that helped found this country and sustain her through all her trials and challenges to become the wealthiest and most generous place on earth……until now.
We, as rational, reasonable citizens have allowed the blatant murder of 50 MILLION plus of our unborn children just because there are some women who don’t want the responsibility of bringing another life into this world? This core argument is “well, we don’t really know when life begins.” Really? I can show you people in their 60′s whose life hasn’t begun yet, so should we terminate them? Seriously, ask a farmer when he thinks a seed begins to germinate…..the moment it is placed in the ground. We have allowed the destruction of one of the greatest ongoing gifts that God has given us……our children. Our children make us immortal in the sense that they carry on our seed to eternity. We even have stooped to the point that our government wants those of us who don’t believe in abortion to pay for it, all in the name of “social justice”.
The biggest culprits of our cultural decline are our churches. All claim to be the “bearers of Christ’s name”; yet they ordain unbelievers and those who preach exactly the opposite of what Christ Himself preaches. There should be a loud and constant cry by the preachers of this country against abortion, homosexuallity, sexual permissiveness, and the falling away of the supposed believers in this great country. The preachers of today seem to be more concerned about how big they can build their churches instead of how many souls they can reach. Most megachurches are nothing more than monuments to the men and women who built them. Quantity does NOT outweigh quality in God’s kingdom. The church is supposed to be a LIVING body, not a cold stone-and-steel building.
