Like you, I am burdened for my country, the United States of America.
In the history of the entire world, ours is the only nation founded on the God-given natural rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (the latter equating to the joy of one’s own property, both physical and intellectual), and ruled “by the people.”
However, for decades our freedoms, our Biblical underpinnings, and our spirit of patriotism have been continually chipped away. We are swiftly drifting into dangerous waters.
Below, I note a handful of events that have brought significant damage to our nation. While there were many who spoke out against these acts of treason, sadly there were just not enough of us to make a difference. We are on an extremely slippery slope that could well be nearing an end:
In 1943, when a Jehovah’s Witness challenged the daily salutation of the U.S. flag in America’s schools and won the decision in the Supreme Court, patriots should have taken note.
In 1962, when the Supreme Court banned school-sponsored prayer, God’s people should have seen the writing on the wall. The slip was well under way.
In 1973, when abortion was legalized, the church at-large rolled over in a slumber. Sure, many saints protested and prayed for decades, and then, miraculously Roe v Wade was overturned in 2022—but only after the lives of millions were taken.
Tragically, states are now free to make their own decisions on the matter of abortion, thus leading to horrid abortion sanctuaries. Too many in those pro-abortion states remain silent on the matter.
In 2014, 54-percent of all children were being raised in a household without both of their biological parents. In 1960 this family dynamic was radically different: 73-percent of all kids lived with both of their biological parents in a traditional marriage situation (Pew Research).
As of 2018, the percentage of births to unmarried women rose from 5-percent in 1960, to 40-percent in 2018. The percentage is certainly even higher today.
These statistics represent a clear sign of moral decay and the lack of Christian influence on the culture.
In 2022, when the sacred institution of marriage was legally redefined, many churches and individual Christians submitted themselves into silence for fear of retribution, censorship, and persecution.
Currently, a gross delusion is covering America. Children are growing up on tablets and I-pads, watching content that is better fit for a dunghill. It is twisting their minds, while simultaneously stunting their physical stature and abilities. Children as young as grade school have phones: boys are watching porn and girls are sharing nude photos of themselves—this is the norm, parents
.Is it any wonder that in the western world even toddlers are “transitioning” to another supposed gender?
Ask the average high-schooler to define “monogamy” or “celibacy.” Likely, they have never heard the words before.
“Oh, but my child’s school is wonderful.”
Don’t judge your kid’s school by the new buildings and turf football field—that’s all a taxpayer-funded façade. Examine the individual teachers and the curriculum. Are they teaching about inalienable rights or Critical Race Theory? Is Biblical morality being positively addressed? Are phones allowed in the classroom?
The very end of the slippery slope is in sight–and it does not look pretty. History is a brutal mirror. The end of a nation too often corresponds with a lack of patriotism, the breakdown of the family, and gross immorality.
This is a battle for the soul of the United States of America. As God’s people we need to fight this battle on our knees in prayer, strategically sharing our faith with a culture that is thirsting for truth and desperately desiring to be set free.
