If our forefathers could see us now, they'd surely think they'd served and died in vain. The shame that has been brought upon America is heard and seen in news and is coming into our neighborhood and homes.
For every occasion we remain silent, indifferent, or divided due to religious differences ... we have nobody to blame but ourselves. It's a myth to expect God's continued blessings when our Christianity is a joke to Him.
Instead of asking God to Bless America, maybe we should be asking why He would. If Christians don't care enough to stand, then why should He? Mt.12:25-30, I Sa. 12:16.
It makes no difference whether in our home, school, church, job, community, state, or country ... wherever God is excluded, Satan has free reign (I Ki. 18:18b). In our land of free, we have set Satan free.
