The State of Our Nation
Uncertainty over the implementation of Obamacare, the faltering economy, burdensome taxes and regulations, and self-serving politicians are all a recipe for disaster. We’ve demanded government provide for us what we could do better ourselves. We’ve demanded “fairness,” “safety,” “acceptance,” and “equal outcomes”… and never felt the chains tightening around us, never felt the noose slip over our necks.
Economic stagnation is a reality. As a country, we’ve also been willing to give our freedoms away… one law, one Supreme Court ruling, one agency, and one “czar” at a time… Now we bemoan, if someone will just make everything right again.
Now in this economy, when municipalities face cutbacks or even bankruptcy, when services we’ve demanded are falling by the wayside; we’re beginning to find out just how shackled we are, just how dependent we’ve made ourselves on a government that neither cares nor is interested in what we want, need, or are guaranteed in our Constitution.
It doesn’t matter how we got to this point. The issue is where do we go from here? Freedom and independence are precious commodities, but with them come enormous responsibilities. We have bankrupted ourselves – financially, morally, physically, and spiritually – and freedom and independence are but a heartbeat away from a lingering death.
If “Tevangelicals” will exercise their first amendment rights and show up at the voting booths like they did at Chick-Fil-A on August 1st, then we can certainly expect change in the nation! This is not the time to be a “conscientious objector”. Your silence is dissent!
Pray for our spiritual bankruptcy!We need God’s mercy! Pray for America to experience a Christ-Awakening revival, and a returning to our roots: “In God We Trust”.
