The national headlines of late are troubling. Have you paused to consider: Why do we open our borders without vetting the immigrants, knowing that among the masses of innocent hopefuls is a subset of every evil movement of those around the world who harbor pure hatred for our Constitutional Republic? Why do those who argue for open borders also propose eliminating law enforcement and every institution that has been commissioned to protect our citizens from those who infiltrate with evil intent? Why are our elected officials unconcerned about the national debt that is approaching a level at which it will be impossible to pay even the accrued interest? Why is our government paying people who refuse to work, more than they have ever earned through gainful employment? Why are our leaders maneuvering us, as a nation, into a position of dependence upon those whose only expressed interest is to destroy our economy and our way of life?
Perhaps, like me, in your contemplations, you adopt words like unreasonable, irrational or illogical to describe the present state of our union, and the philosophies of those who boast of their ability to legislate. America is following in the footsteps of other nations who are no more—or whose high water marks are behind them. These observations have discouraged the patriot and rallied the ranks of the enemy. Those who love our country are heartbroken over what is lost in a generation of those who have failed to learn from history, and are therefore destined to repeat it.
It is hard for those of us who have spoken so proudly of “God and Country” to accept the fact that country can make no boast of its own greatness, and never could, apart from its great God. Our dependence cannot, and never should have been, upon a nation—not even in part. The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. (Psalm 33:10–12).
