Christians must wake up to state of U.S.

The soul of America appears to be drifting into an abyss from which it may never recover. Holy scripture (I Peter 4:17) warns that “judgment must begin at the house of God.” We who claim to be believers in God the father and Jesus Christ, his son, must arise from our weakened state and wake up to the spiritual warfare that we face. Old-fashioned hellfire and brimstone preaching could well serve to shake us up and embolden the church populace to its responsibility to God.

If we are to survive as a nation and secure a heavenly eternal destiny, there must be a response to God’s call upon our lives to serve him first and foremost as Lord of our lives and not as an afterthought. We have been duly advised in Psalm 33:12, “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” And George Washington wisely declared, “it is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”

Have we now arrived at that “impossible” point?
