We in this country wonder if God has turned his back on America. The answer for this is America has turned its back on God. In 1962 the Supreme Court stopped Bible reading and prayer in American schools. If families in America raise their kids in character and moral values they have a chance to excel in their life. Millions of kids today do not have this chance because of broken homes and the indifference of mothers and fathers.
Another big problem is our government. It is out of control in most ways. Because our government is selfish, lazy, overpaid and throws money to millions of people for little or no work, the spirit and drive that America has today is dismal and going down and we are hopelessly deadlocked. This is not Republicans against Democrats, it is the people versus Washington and its lobbyists.
The sooner the liberals and conservatives see this. the better the chance our nation can get out of this mess. If not, the checks to Social Security, government workers, the disabled and all the rest will stop. The people need to wake up to how serious this thing is now. You better get a job just in case.
Another government office is the Supreme Court, which approved abortion in the U.S. Since they rendered this decision over 55 million babies have been killed in America. We grieve for murders in America and we should, but how about those 1 million babies killed in America last year?
America needs to get on its knees and sincerely ask God back in our lives and help our nation to get back on its feet.
The scriptures say: “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.”
And George Washington wrote: “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits and humbly to implore his protection and favor.”
