God Bless America?
My 4th of July was about as low key as you can get.
No celebration, no fireworks show, no…anything.
Quick…name five great American politicians alive today.
How about two great American statesman?
I spent a lot of my time off reading…reading about things that have troubled me for some time.
What America was and what America is today are very different things.
In a land where faith and country have always gone together I feel a great need to separate the two because the values represented are so very different.
My government lies to me about the wars we fight, the economy I’m struggling to live in, and the global situations that affect us all.
Major banks were given huge bailout as they were laundering billions in drug money that threatens to disembowel our neighbor to the south…and while foreclosures were at historic levels.
The land that was of the people, by the people and for the people now seems to be the government of multi national corporations and power brokers.
Still, the cry of many conservatives is to take back this country…as if we can disband and disengage from economic and political forces that are now the fabric of our society.
How do we deal today with issues of faith and country?
Do we continue to try political measures or do we simply beg God for revival?
Who are the men and women that can provide godly, Christian leadership in that arena?
Do you care?
We are accountable for what we’ve been given…and in the providence of God we were given this great land.
