A Christian Nation

 Back in June of 2007, a U.S. senator from Illinois said, “Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation—at least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation and a nation of nonbelievers.”  This is the man who, just two years later, would become the President of the United States of America, and serve for two terms, leading our republic even further into spiritual darkness.  He is a man who mocks truth as found in non-revisionist, honest history.  He mocks the Bible and its distinctly Christian foundational principles and precepts that were chosen by our founding fathers to be used as building blocks for our constitutional republic.  But he was right, we are no longer a Christian nation. 

  And why? It is because we carnal American Christians have, for decades, shirked our responsibilities to pass our Christian heritage on to our families, friends and neighbors; it is because we have stood by silently as evil has blinded the minds of the masses.  These are the reasons we now stand on the threshold of total apostasy as a nation.  We have spurned the grace of God, and have provoked the Almighty to judgment.

  Is it possible to reverse this moral, social and political carnage?  Is there still time?  Truth is, it is not a matter of time, but of the will.  God once said to a nation of repeat offenders, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)”  It is up to us fourth and fifth generation, lazy, lukewarm, ignorant children of God, to shape up.  The unsaved will continue to act unsaved, and no political party or philosophy that they can muster will be able to deliver us.  What our nation, and the world, needs is Jesus Christ, and everything He taught and preserved for us in the Bible.  Mockers will mock because they are blind to the spiritual truth that could set them free, so it is up to you and me to win them to our Savior, one at a time.  He is our ONLY hope.  “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD! (Psalm 33:12)”
