Psalm 119:89

This week America is celebrating her 240th birthday and there will be plenty of singing, praying, preaching, and along with that, wild parties and drunken orgies, without a thought about God or His commandments.

And therein lies a problem-a big problem, and unless it is addressed, it is going to be the end of all of us.  George Washington, our first president, declared to the young nation just beginning, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”  WOW!  That’s a shocker, but true as the day is long.  If we abandon God and God’s word, the Bible, we will cease to be a democracy, a free nation; and our liberties and freedoms will be gone.

So what to do?  Christians need to get back to God, bring back the Bible, and fear of Almighty God.  It is not too late.  It can be done.   It must be done.  Reverence to God and obedience to the Ten Commandments.  This could be a wonderful Fourth of July if we used it as a turning point back to God!  As each of us get back to God, back to the Bible, back to prayer, we could start the way back to a nation truly, “under God.”

God bless America!
