This is the state of our country

He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: But when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. Proverbs 29:1‭-‬2 KJV

Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, our country is not doing very well regardless of what the media or those talking heads in Washington, DC are saying. We, as a country, NEED to get back to our Christian roots. Will we do this? Not likely. There are too many who either don’t agree with Christian values or just don’t care.

Why has our country wandered down this road at this time? Mainly because we have kicked God out of our education system and out of most homes as well. In the past twenty-five years or so, our country has moved away from religion in almost all forms but especially away from Christianity. I know that in the past Christianity was used in ways that didn’t line up with the values that were taught in the Bible, but it has done much more good than harm in the past couple of thousand years.

Granted, there have been some very dark times in its history but most of that was caused by the so-called “leaders” in the church and their quest for power and money or riches. Kinda sounds like our country today, doesn’t it?

We, as a country and a culture, need to get back to the values that America had when it began. Look up the history of our “Ivy League” colleges. They all started as schools for clergy and missionaries. Although, some of that history was misused when they tried to “Christianize” and civilize the Native Americans. Yes, the church has had some bad times in the past mostly caused by people using its message in the wrong way. For-profit or to “tame” some culture that didn’t need taming but needed understanding. It was also used to enslave people by using the Word of God to justify actions that never should’ve happened in the first place.

All of the bad things that have been done by the “church” or even “Christianity” was done by the people in charge or people using the Bible to justify their actions by claiming that it was OK because God’s Word said so. Slavery, hatred, and other things like racism and bigotry are not in the teachings of the Bible. God loves us and He provided the way for us to have salvation through belief in Jesus as our Savior. Seek Him through a church that teaches from the Bible.

You have worth in God’s eyes. He values each of you so don’t turn away from Him.
