Re Jeff Pittard's July 11 letter "Blames parents for youth violence":
His quote: "Keeping God out of school is good because it allows people who don't believe in God to be free of Him." His question is, "What is causing these problems?"
The song America Again by Carmen is the answer to all his questions. It is our society and the way of life a person chooses to live (that causes these problems). To live like there's no God makes you a fool. If you want to see kids live right, start handing out the word of God in our homes and schools. The only hope for America and its people is Jesus.
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God -- the reason this nation first began -- has been eliminated from the American life. Of the 55 men who founded the Constitution, 52 were active members of their church. They had the ability to follow the Ten Commandments.
You can't have national morality apart from religious principle. When this happens, you have kids carrying guns to the war zones we call schools. There's rape, murder, teen pregnancy, abortion, drug use, violent crime and divorce. Satan lives in the hearts of people producing the devil-like qualities as God lives in the hearts of Christians producing God-like qualities.
It's time to sound the alarm from the church to the White House and say, "We want God in America again," to stand up and proclaim that one nation under God is our demand and send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from.
Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory. Every eye shall see Him on that day. That's why a new anointing of God's power is coming -- so we can boldly tell the world, "You must be saved."
