In May 2006—nearly 17 years ago—this is what I wrote in The Daily Jot: “Our nation is in trouble. Now that seems like an obvious statement, but even in its blatancy Americans seem more than willing to allow somebody else to deal with the situation. People point to the gas prices at the pumps and complain that it’s a good thing they have credit cards otherwise they would not be able to buy gas. They talk about immigration. On one hand, America needs to control her borders. On the other hand, the Mexicans that come across the border are hard workers, doing jobs nobody else likes, so shouldn’t they deserve some consideration?
“The homosexual political juggernaut is moving rapidly to teach their abomination as normal to our public school children and is trying so desperately to destroy the institution of marriage. Yet, I have hardly seen any massive demonstration to put an end to this assault on our children. Likewise, the political left has been allowed to establish a total lie as fact and teach it as a new religion to our children. Evolution replaces God as the Creator and even though the father of evolution himself, Charles Darwin, said that there was no scientific evidence to prove his theory, it is being taught in our public schools as fact with absolutely no disclaimer. Local people, like you and me, control school boards, yet this is allowed
“These are just a few of the domestic problems Americans face. And we as Americans, yes you and me, are letting the anarchists, the communists, the socialists, the leftist have their way with this nation. We are standing by and doing little if nothing to save our own country. Our forefathers took up arms against the most powerful nation in the world at the time and defeated it decisively that they might guarantee our freedom. And this generation is standing by and allowing a small, but vocal minority a coup de tat hardly without raising a voice. Now here is the problem: This nation was founded in covenant with God.” Back to today. Maybe that was a little harsh, but 17 years later, can we say much has changed for the better?
America is a nation where 94% of all the founding-era documents of our country were based on the Bible, and of that, 34% of the content were direct quotes from the Bible. America is by Divine design the beacon of hope in Christ to the world. Satan apparently knows it better than we do. The communists, socialists, anarchists and leftists know it, too. In Ezekiel 22:30, the Lord said, “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it.” Then God continued, “But I found none.” After 17 years, some of us are standing in the gap, but so many more are unaware of the consequences of what has been allowed to grow and fester. We need to pray and act. Time is 17 years shorter.
