Consider this: if a tree was rotting from within, would it make sense to try to save the tree by attacking the symptoms? Does it make sense to treat the tree by attacking parasites, the weather, or the soil because they are harmful to trees? What hurts our nation is not from outside our borders; its from within. It's our unwillingness to follow the Bible and acknowledge the God of the Bible as our only hope of healing our land. It's our insistence on secularism and our resistance to Christianity.
The problem is not Islam. The fact that we are being attacked by Islamists reveals our policies as a nation have left the Scriptures - where government's role is given.
The problem is not moral relativism. The fact that our culture is changing morally reveals our nation's departure from the Bible where universal moral teaching is found along with the warnings of the consequences of departure.
The problem is not politicians. The fact that our political system is so corrupt reveals our unwillingness to vote honest Christian men into office.
The problem is not guns. The fact that Americans need to defend themselves personally at all times reveals that we have forgotten how to love one another because we have put our Bibles away and no longer accept Christian practices as binding on public or private interpersonal morays.
The problem is not welfare. The fact that Americans need welfare more and more reveals that we have left the Biblical standard for work ethics and basic parental responsibilities.
The problem is not abortion. The fact that abortion exists in our country reveals that we have forgotten the sanctity of life which God has given to all of humanity in the Bible.
The problem is not our Constitution. The fact that so many are undermining our Constitution reveals that the principles that founded this nation and were based in the Bible have been exchanged for principles of immediate gratification and foolishness.
The problem is not (... - you fill in the blank) The fact that (...) continues to plague our nation is because we have left the Bible and the God of the Bible in order to pursue more selfish pleasures than honest ones.
Our nation is in trouble because we are rotting from within. And we are rotting from within because the Author of Life has been expunged from our hearts (while not always our heads). We have to stop attacking the symptoms and start attacking the enemy - our sin! We may play at our Christian religion, but we don't practice it. We follow OUR pleasures rather than God's. We have decided that freedom of religion must be freedom FROM Christianity. We need to repent of our sins and return to the Bible as our antibiotic against the decay of sin - first in our hearts, and then in our nation. "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34)
