America, in Danger of Hell Fire
Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Even with a godly heritage, our once great nation is in imminent danger of damnation.
On the positive side of the ledger, I see the following:
A foundation that was rich in Christian values. Wallbuilders.org will supply any inquiring mind all the information required to ascertain whether the founders of our country were Christians, deists, agnostics or atheists. Fact: America was established as a Christian nation.
A heart for the less fortunate. What other nation, with the ability to annihilate its foes, instead rebuilds their nations and supports them after the battles are done? What other nation pours tens of billions of dollars into struggling nations, even those that hate their benefactor? Which nation always leads the way in outpouring of relief dollars and resources for areas stricken by disaster? America has been, and still is to some extent, a big-hearted nation made up of good-hearted people.
A church-going nation. On any given Sunday, the largest proportion of church attendees anywhere in the world is right here in the good old US of A. There may not be enough gospel in some of those churches to fill a thimble, but those folks are trying to find a way to connect with their Creator.
A missions-hearted, missionary-sending country. From the Mayflower Pact, drawn up, ratified and signed while still in the bay before its unlading, to the missions boards of today, there is no greater missions-minded, missions-supporting people in the world than the Americans. We sacrifice to ensure that the gospel reaches the farthest corner of the globe.
But, there is also the negative side of the ledger.
Abortion, our legalized genocide of 1.5 million innocents per annum, no doubt, continues to draw the ire and wrath of Heaven.
Sodomy. The strutting sissies have bashed the nation over its head with their purses until our brains have gone soft. Now, "gay" marriage, civil unions, special rights for homos, anti-hate ordinances, ad nausea, are the rule of the times.
Allow me to quickly enumerate the some of the others: greed, crime, corruption, deceit, gang-banging, hatred, hypocrisy, heresy, satanism, epicureanism, back-biting, libel, hatred, blasphemy, sexual deviance of all kinds... well the list goes on.
We have Satan and his emissaries to thank for their propagation and proliferation of these dark vices which will eventually drag our nation to hell. We have, in large part, forgotten God.
We stand in need of revival and renewal and it will not start with the guy down the street. It starts with you, dear reader, right here and right now. Humbly come before God, turning from your wickedness to embrace holiness. Fall back on your knees for regular and prolonged sessions with the Lord. Consume ample amounts of the Bible and appropriate and assimilate God's message into your life and actions. Seek the Lord's face with all your heart, soul, mind and body.
If your nation goes to hell, so be it. But don't allow it to happen because you haven't been revived and haven’t done your dead level best to win those in your sphere of influence, that they would not forget God and be turned into hell.
