Nation needs to turn back to God
We, as supposedly Christian people, have stood by for the last 30 years or longer and watched this great nation deteriorate to a point of no return. Multitudes of Americans have given their lives in an effort to keep this nation "under God," but the battle appears to have been in vain.
This nation, abundantly blessed by Almighty God, has come to the place where the mere mention of God has become an offense to many. To appease them, we have taken prayer out of schools, and look what has happened. Our children are killing each other! When God is excluded, judgment is not a consideration in choosing to commit a violent act because the fear of disobeying God's words is absent.
We should try to envision the severity of trying to exist in a nation without God. Our Supreme Court, the same court that took prayer out of our schools, is now in the process of removing "under God" from our Pledge of Allegiance. If not "under God," then under whom? There is only one other power, and that is Satan.
The Ten Commandments are being banned from government buildings. Does our Supreme Court believe the act of removing them from mankind's eyes will also remove the consequences of ignoring "thou shalt not?" The people in the days of Noah did not think that God could flood the earth with dew, the people of Sodom and Gomorrah had never heard of fire and brimstone. We, in this generation, have yet to see the true wrath of god, but the Bible tells us it is coming. Our eyes and mind could barely withstand the tragedies that befell us on 9-11, but the events of that sad day will not compare when God grows tired of our foolishness.
America, wake up!
