Two reasons why the United States 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.”

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…”

There are reasons administratively that make USA great in my opinion— the Constitution, the capitalistic economy, justice based on Bible principles, the work ethic, public education, helping others—but all of these are flawed except to the extent that they are operated “under God.”

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. One of my students didn’t say the Pledge of Allegiance. His mother told me it was because their allegiance was to God alone. I told her that I could understand that, and if we ever stopped being “one nation under God,” I’d stop saying it, too.

      I’m very thankful that at this point it does not have to be one or the other. Thanks for your comment. I have never had any conflict over the pledge because it just seemed obvious to me that we are talking about countries. I pledge allegiance to my country as opposed to other countries. I wouldn’t even pledge my allegiance to my country over my allegiance to my husband and children. Some thinks I just assumed. So many things seemed to be non-issues in the past.

    America is ONE GREAT NATION. (Who’s opinion?) In God’s eyes or else it is not true. There are many other nations who even in 2018,where God is FIRST in all their decisions and 1st before anything else. These small nations are relatively unknown but small pacific Principalities where Christ is supreme. One day indeed ONE Kingdom, one God. One Day. .

    Bam, Oneta. I consider this one of your best posts ever. That’s not solely because I agree, but he truths you present are also self evident.
