Weakened Foundation
by Ramblin’ Rose

Are we still “One nation, under God?” Could we become one again?

Abraham Lincoln showed great foresight when he stated “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will because we destroyed ourselves.”

I fear that many people stop at the end of the first sentence and breathe a sigh of relief and ignore his dire warning.

God will not be mocked…regardless of what the secularists decree and the leftists scream.

Ten years before the infamous decision of Roe v. Wade in 1973, the Supreme Court established an official government-run religion in this country by a vote of 8-1. Justice Potter Stewart was the lone dissenter. The Supreme Court took the Bible out of the public schools and out of the hands of our children. So began the State-run religion of secularism…and the fall of this great nation.

Yet, even today, the cry is to keep Church and State at their proper distance. However, it is only moral-based faith that is forbidden. By removing God from the classroom, our society effectively rewrote our USA history. In 1620, the first settlers called upon God multiple times in the Mayflower Compact before settling in Plymouth. Our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence in 1776 referred to the Creator who bestowed “unalienable rights.” Our currency declares that “In God We Trust.” There are numerous and frequent attempts to remove that “offensive” line from our money. Others strive to remove “…one nation, under God…” from our Pledge of Allegiance while millions of others have just removed it from our children’s classrooms while instituting Muslim prayers in the name of “diversity.”

It certainly appears that since 1963, we have moved much closer to becoming a pagan nation. Progressives prefer to use “equality” to label what God labeled “abominations” (same-sex marriage). Since 1973, they call murder “reproductive choice” (abortion). Leftists call theft from the working members of society “fairness” to the underprivileged as they redistribute economic resources (socialism). They call “ evil good and good evil,” as warned by God. [Editor’s note: Pelosi once said that unemployment checks “creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”]

Sadly, yes, ours is a divided nation. Millions have embraced the rebellious principles of Roman 1. Hopefully, millions more are ready to fight for Right and remain faithful to the message of Romans 8. While we cannot predict the future of our country, it behooves us to continue in fervent prayer for it and all its citizens. We must fall to our knees in fear (respect and honor) of God. For at the end, each will be held to an accounting and face eternal judgment.

In the meantime, we must cling to God’s promise: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked way, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their lang.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

God bless America, I pray.
