A Nation Under God?

"Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people." Proverbs 14:34

We say, "One nation under God"--but are we? I look at what we have accepted as a nation. We have denied God. We have taken His name off our money, out of our schools and holidays. We have accepted sexual immorality, addictions, self propagation, injustice, murder of babies, theft, and the list goes on--as standard operating procedure. We vote on issues that the Bible forbids as sin. We put ourself in God's place. We are reaping what we have and continue to sow--a life that excludes Jesus.

But the challenge is not only with our nation, but in the Church. We have accepted godlessness. We determine which scriptures we accept and those we don't, so we can support our own theology. We have taken Christ off the center of the throne, and placed our desires, our sinful desires, on the throne. We reject the word of God for the teachings and lifestyles of fallen man. The Church that Jesus bought with His blood, has compromised itself.

I think it's time that we wake up and follow Christ.
