Letter: Nation on destructive course

Published:

 

May 1 is the 63rd National Day of Prayer. The theme is One Voice United in Prayer. The Bible, tells us in 2 Chronicles 7:14, that if we, his people, will humble ourselves, pray, and turn from our wicked ways, he will hear us, forgive us, and heal our land. Our country was founded by godly men who believed and respected God and his word.

Now we are getting more and more ungodly. We have had legalized abortion (murder) for 41 years. We are promoting homosexuality and legalizing marijuana, while at the same time removing prayer, Bible reading, and the Ten Commandments from our schools and other public places.

The Declaration of Independence says we are endowed by our creator (God) with certain unalienable rights. God would not give us a right, same-sex marriage, that he would forbid to us in the user’s manual that he gave us, the Bible: 1 Corinthians, 6:9-10, (New American Standard Bible), tells us that no homosexuals will inherit the kingdom of God.

Because of our ungodliness, we are headed for destruction. It could be the United States will go bankrupt, and/or be destroyed militarily, or face famine and starvation. Galations 6:7 tells us we will reap what we sow. We have been sowing evil and sin, and soon we could face destruction.
