It’s heartbreaking to witness our nation and its government that was formed on the truths, values and guidelines of God’s word, the Bible, turn from it to the flawed, misguided wisdom of mankind.
“Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1: 28-32
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from the wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2nd Chronicles 7-14
Forgiveness comes by confessing our sins to Jesus Christ and trusting in him.
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” Romans 10: 9-10
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say no to ungodliness and worldly passion, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.” Titus 2: 11-12
God help us.
