Could it be any plainer why we need God in America again? Just take one look at the condition of our nation. There’s a good reason why our founders included in their state charters and constitutions, the requirement that one must profess belief in God, the Scriptures and in a system of eternal rewards and punishments before they would be trusted with public office. Just look at the corruption reported in the Durham Report, and you get a picture of the mindset of people who have no fear of God, people who will justify whatever actions they deem to be “righteous” given their current circumstances. It’s clear they had no fear of divine justice. In their arrogance and pride they believed they would define justice, and that meant defeating Trump by whatever means is necessary. Truth is expendable.
That’s why John Adams told us that
”…Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the governing of any other.” –Oct. 11, 1798
Fortunately for us, the whale got caught in the net. Our Constitutional republic withstood another pernicious attack from people who had no allegiance to truth or to our Constitutional system of law and justice. They saw themselves as the ultimate judge to achieve a desired outcome. It’s important for us to understand the invisible forces behind the visible things we see. There are only two powers at work in the world: The power of God and truth, and the power of Satan and lies; there is no middle ground.
That’s why if there is ever to be any restoration to the integrity of our Republic it must derive from a return to first principles, and above all a return to the acknowledgement of God. As Lincoln told us,
“it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God,”
and more recently President Eisenhower told us that,
“Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first –the most basic- expression of Americanism.”
So, I say, where are the pastors and religious leaders who will help lead us back to the God in whom we say we place our trust?
We must not be complacent with a false assurance that we will always have a nation. If God didn’t protect Israel when judgment was due, there’s no reason to think we might fare any better. For the sake of our grandchildren and coming generations, we must openly, and publicly, turn back to God. Christian pastors and leaders must lead the way.
