Two reasons why the United States has been/is a great nation:
One: Psalm 33:18-20 “Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.” Those who fear the Lord are those who respect him, honor him, and obey him.
Two: Genesis 18:18 “…Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him…” Notice the nations of the earth shall be blessed because of Abraham/because of Israel. Nations who pray for, befriend, and support Israel will be blessed.
These are reasons that make USA great in my opinion— the Constitution, the capitalistic economy, justice based on Bible principles, humanitarian fervor, the work ethic, public education—but all of these are flawed except to the extent that they are operated “under God.”
Yes, I do think America is great. But she is drawing further and further from the two scriptures above. Do we continue our downhill slope? I hope not. Who knows when we pass the point of no return? Or, have we already done so? What appears to be the focus of the nation? Check the Supreme Court and see where the nation’s focus is? Stuff like making somebody bake cookies for someone, or being sure a man can use a girl’s rest room, or being sure a woman can kill her baby if she doesn’t want to take care of it (must be done before it leaves the birth table).
America – 20 trillion in the red. And that is what can be seen on paper. Morally, how deep in the red? As I said, have we passed the point of no return?
America Bless God equals God Bless America!
