We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” So begins the second paragraph of our Declaration of Independence. I would like to point your attention to the truth taught by the words “created” and “Creator.” The founders of our great nation may not all have been Bible-believing Christians as I understand the term, but they all acknowledged the existence of God and that they were the creation of His Almighty hand.
Indeed, I contend that this is what made our nation great and why it was blessed beyond any in history (other than OT Israel) for over two centuries. But for the past 60 plus years we have done our best to forget and forsake that Creator. Our school system has been taken over by humanists and evolutionists. The majority of those who now hold public office would not and could not have written such words as above, because they do not believe them. This is why our nation is in decline. We have forsaken God, the only true God, Jehovah, the God of the Bible.
Because we no longer, as a nation, believe in nor honor the Lord God, immorality is rampant. Our homes are in shambles. We condone the murder of the innocent unborn. We have promoted such wickedness as gambling, pornography, and sodomy. Children are no longer taught absolute right and wrong. Instead we have adopted the wickedness of “Political Correctness.” PC is nothing more than a Satanic attempt to destroy truth.
I hope on this 4th of July all of us will pray for our nation. We need to pray for God’s mercy upon us. We need to pray that He would grant us repentance and send revival to our land. For this is the only real hope to save our decaying nation. Let me leave you with these two verses of Holy Scripture “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;” Ps. 33:12 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chron. 7:14
