Where has all the faith gone?

Sunday, October 14, 2012

To the Editor:

What has gone wrong with we the patriots of this wonderful country?

A country that was founded on principles and Christianity?

What has gone wrong with the land of the free and the home of the brave?

We have forsaken and turned our hearts away from our only hope for survival in this land, our hope is Christ Jesus.

We say as Christian Americans we love the 10 Commandments, but we have stood idly by and have allowed one individual to scoff at the name of Jesus, and this has therefore brought chaos into our public schools.

The laws that God had laid down for man was to honor His word. Instead of his laws being allowed in public schools, the 10 Commandments have been replaced wit tins of condoms.

We are now teaching our little ones the abnormality of sex; the sacred union God had put between one man and one woman.

We say we have freedom of speech. Yes, as long as we leave the most sacred God given gift out of the scenario, which is Christ Jesus, the light of the world, who without Him, would be total darkness.

We as Christians must lift up the blood-stained banner of the Holy one and pray, "Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed by they name." There has never been a time in American history where we need to cry out, "My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing."

God tells us in II Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins, and heal their land."

We say where is our security in America? It is not based on man's philosophy but the firm foundation of our eternal Father, whom without Him, there would never have been a civilized nation, for this country was founded on God.

Research into history tells us our founding fathers (pilgrims) when stepping onto the American soil, fell on their knees and began giving thanks to the great creator for His protection and almighty power.

Yes, America, we have had a wake-up call, for we have let down the blood-stained banner of the Holy Crucified one who was our sacrificial gift from God for mankind, who He had created to replenish the earth.

We must look to God who has the sustaining power, the author and finisher of our faith.

To God be the glory that we as American citizens are uniting together in love, that we can help bring peace and morality into our world.

As Revelation 18:10 tells us, "Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come."
