What We Like About America

Providence has given to our people the choice of our rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their leaders.John Jay, First Supreme Court Justice

Perhaps the most distressing aspect of our leadership in America is their lack of vision. I’m convinced that the liberal segment of government really feels that they make things better when they dismantle the Constitution, just as I’m convinced that the conservative segment of government feels powerless to enforce that same Constitution when they see it being violated.

But they are wrong, and their erroneous thinking is robbing us of the very things we enjoy about America. Honesty, safety, purity, a strong work ethic, integrity and the like used to be the rule of our great country, not the exception. And things worked the way they were designed to because we were unashamedly a Christian nation - and true Christianity always works.

For example, our welfare system was set up to take care of those who are in genuine need. Do you know anyone (be honest with yourself now) that really wants our widows, the handicapped and those who truly cannot take care of themselves, to starve… or to go without clothing… or to live on the streets?

No decent person stands by and lets the innocent suffer, but by minimizing the Christian ethic and focusing on an “enlightened” secular humanism, we have corrupted the welfare system into a game of plunder instead of a handup.

Does anyone really believe that the Ten Commandments posted in a school orcourthouse will do any harm? Or that praying at a ball game will corrupt our children? Or that teaching these same children abstinence (instead of how many ways they can pervert themselves) will somehow be dangerous? Or that a Bible on the bed stand in a motel will cause atheists to suffer?

Our courts have voted that killing babies in the womb is noble, but that not keeping our 4’7” ten year olds in a booster seat is a crime that must be punished. Our grandmothers, wives and daughters are groped at every airport, while our government releases convicted terrorists who have sworn to kill as many Americans as possible. And, what we liked about America is rapidly disappearing.

You see, the truth is that wisdom comes only from God. So, when an enlightened society prefers worldly leaders and worldly ways over Christian leaders and Christian ways, is it any wonder that this same enlightened society loses everything that made it valuable in the firstplace? We must turn back to God, and soon, or we will risk losing everything that we love about this great nation. The reality is that the things we like about America can only come about through Christian living.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and knowledge. Proverbs 1:7, NIV
