Is America failing?

  • Follow Letters

How did we get to this place? Are we seeing the fall of America? When someone stands for Christian teachings and values do we threaten and condemn them?

Our country used to know the mind of God despite the country’s shortcomings. Whom can we serve if it not be God Himself? Our countrymen have forgotten why we have been a light to the rest of the world. It is not by sexual degradation, socialistic anarchy or financial enslavement. Our government is of the people, by the people and for the people – not of the Senate, by the House and for the White House.

Do we stand for justice, the American way of life and a future of hope? Or do we continue on to despair, poverty and no hope? We have become a nation of freeloaders and haters of freedom.

We must stand for something and not let the rest of the world think we stand for nothing. We send out missionaries who do great things, yet in our own back yard we build crosses to crucify our own.
