Abandoning Our National Faith
by Pete Ketcham
Many countries morals and customs are predicated on their national accepted religion. The following are some examples:
India follows the diverse religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. China had practiced Confucianism, Taoism (Daoism), and Buddhism. Japan primarily practices Shinto and Buddhism. The middle east primarily follows the commands of Islam.
As we know, the religion which guided this nation from it’s very beginning in the early 1600’s has been Christianity as set out in the bible. With the national biblical belief in God the father and his son Jesus, this nation became the greatest nation in the history of the world, far exceeding the accomplishments of the prior named nations and all others.
WE HAVE CHANGED
Bur now, we as a nation have abandoned the foundation of our morals and laws (as set forth in the bible), and are now in an accelerating moral decline that will destroy this nation if it continues.
Many good people have risen up. They are running for (and winning) political office, forming conservative organizations, producing conservative talk shows and news outlets. There are many other efforts to save our nation by good people, yet despite all their efforts we continue to decline as we drift further and further from God’s guidance and protection.
Many conservatives work hard within the political arena to correct this national decline, and that is as it should be, yet the foundational issues remain, evil verses good, Satan verses God, and knowledge verses wisdom.
It seems evident that the only correction to the nation’s decline is a moral revival, but there appears to be very little chance of that happening in the present national moral climate.
At this point there is no option but for the conservatives to continue the fight, and have faith that God who enabled this nation to be born, will enable His people in this nation to save it from the impending destruction it is facing.
