Letters to the Editor

As an 81-year-old senior, I can’t remember the World War II years when America became united and strong overnight, and it can happen again.

We became the most powerful nation in the face of the earth. Everyone was in sync from children to seniors. The war effort was great. I remember prayer in the classroom and the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. The attitude and character toward life and people was amazing. We had purpose, priorities and we supported our armed forces and veterans.

Perseverance in the word of God was everywhere. In Proverbs 15:33, God says, “The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility.“ We adopted God’s laws as our own. The laws of our nation are predicated upon the word of God. We don’t have sharia law here because our book is the Bible. We don’t have kings here because our forefathers said there would be no king but Jesus.

We incorporated God‘s word into our nation's fabric. He blessed and protected us, and we prospered as no other nation has. We have a risen higher and faster than any other nation before us.

Compared to the other nations of the world, we are but a child nation, a youngster nation. I have been in churches in Europe that are older than our nation. Yet we have risen to the top of the heap at the guiding hand of God.

As a nation, we have failed to honor that covenant and we are beginning to reap the sour rewards of neglect in turning away from God. Christians are the ones who need to step up their game. We are the ones upon whom God calls to repent and return to be righteous. We cannot expect our nation to be more than its churches. We cannot look to the man and methods of earth; we need to look to the God of heaven. We are the ones to blame and we are the ones that need to be revised so this country can be turn back to God.

If America is going to see the blessing and power of God, it will require an in bracing of righteousness, and returning to the God of the Christians, and a revival among the people of God. It has happened in the past and it can happen again.

The dumb-bunnies in the Democratic Party — and they are hopping around, not knowing what will come out of their mouth’s next — have said they want socialism. Several of the candidates have never visited a socialist country in their lifetime. I have personally visited socialist countries and communist countries and I don’t care if I ever go back to either one of them again.

The founders of our country knew what they were doing!
