America... the formerly beautiful

Howdy y'all!
I think it's time for a shorter post on a sadder note. I am first a follower of Jesus Christ and second a patriotic American. It grieves me deeply to see the route our nation has chosen. The cause of all our problems lies in the fact that America, as a nation, has turned her back on God and the Biblical principles that she was founded on. Hard work, love of country, love of life, and faith in Christ are principles that are quickly becoming uncommon. Respect for the elderly, love for unborn children, and a Biblical sense of marriage are things of the past. Drugs, sodomy, abortion, and generally polluting sins run rampant. Guys, I love this country and I don't want to see her die because of traitorous, ungodly leaders and unpatriotic, God-hating citizens - but unless this nation is reclaimed by the power of God and his people spreading the truth, it's only downhill from here. If you read nothing else today, read this.


AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

America the Beautiful, or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride; I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters, Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty, your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly poisoned by cocaine,
Choosing to indulge their lusts, when God has said abstain.

From sea to shining sea, our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love and a need to always pray.

So many worldly preachers tell lies about our Rock,
Saying God is going broke so they can fleece the flock.

We've kept God in our temples, how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool, and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges who throw reason out the door,

Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry, that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God, from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do, but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children, will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful, if you don't then you will see,
A sad but Holy God withdraw His hand from Thee.

Judge Roy Moore

  1. You are right. If the political leaders of America continue on with the mindset that they are what made this country great, America will completely lose the beauty that she once had because of her trust in Almighty God.
