“If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” President Ronald Reagan
Every patriotic, pro-moral American has reason to be deeply concerned and saddened by the outcome. The America we knew has changed because the values on which America was founded were set aside because of selfishness, unbalanced by biblical truth and commitment to the values of Jesus Christ.
Those of us who intensely prayed and worked for a different result are entitled to a time of grief for our beloved nation and what we have become.
The event we have just witnessed was far more than a general election – it was a referendum on the soul of America.
For the first time in our history, a plurality of Americans voted for a party platform that intentionally omitted God and advanced many positions that the Bible specifically condemns.
Millions of Americans looked evil in the eye and adopted it.
Abortion, same-sex marriage, and immorality carried the day.
Race and ethnicity overrode values.
I tremble for our country because I fear the blessings of God that made America great are being withdrawn.
Some Christian observers called the Democratic Party platform for 2012 a “Romans Chapter 1 Platform,” and they were right.
The America we love is sick and in need of a spiritual renewal (a revival) and healing by the one and only Creator, GOD Himself.
The charge for the day is “Forward – to Repent America”. Unless we turn to Christ and his values, we truly will suffer the complete loss of our freedoms as it was intended to be. As Benjamin Franklin said, “ We give you a republic, if you can keep it”. The Lord has said, “Keep my commandments and ye shall prosper”. It’s truly evident…. the handwriting is on the wall”.
I also add from the NKJV of the Holy Bible from Romans (written by Paul) in Chapter one:
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisibleattributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c]wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful;32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
