What has happened? Well, it's true that our political system has become corrupt to the point where many of our leaders don't even try to hide it any longer and crony-capitalism has replaced real capitalism. But something much bigger has led to most of these things and in this humble blogger's opinion it's our loss of dependence on the Almighty God who saw this country through from its beginning until only recently. It's as if things changed overnight and what is right is now deemed wrong and what is wrong is celebrated as being right. Oh, it's not all Americans, but it is a significant number and the resulting change in our national outlook is stark. The nation is no longer happy, lacks defined goals and in so many ways appears to have lost it's soul.
On this week's Sunday Morning Coming Down devotional we're going to talk about this. We will approach it from a traditional Christian approach, looking at our foundation under God and what we need to do to return it to His Way. God has always blessed us, but could it be that so many of our problems are coming about because God is displeased with our lack of commitment and faith? After all, similar circumstances happened repeatedly in Israel in Old Testament days including the sack of Jerusalem, the destruction of the Temple and the imprisonment of thousands.
The show will air early Saturday morning and then be available on demand 24/7. We hope you'll join us for the message, a brief scriptural passage, good Christian music and a prayer. Start the weekend off right with a moment for God. It's also a good preparation for the Lord's Day on Sunday. Here's the link:
