HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA
Yesterday I listened to an interview with Lee Greenwood, songwriter and
recorder of “God Bless The USA”. A very good interview about why he
wrote the song and how it has affected people over the years. It pulls at the
heart stings of most Americans. This interview brought a tear to my eye, not
because of patriotic fervor, but because of sadness. For many of us we are
seeing our country slowly slip away from it’s founding principles. We are
no longer a God fearing nation, even though this country was founded by
men who worshipped God and based a lot of their choices in there belief of
God. God did, and has blessed the USA. Today however, as a nation we
have slowly turned our back on God. We have taken God out of the public
square and restricted his presence to church buildings, and now with the
most recent court ruling even churches may be in jeopardy. This is what
brought a tear to my eye. Why would God bless this country when this
country has turned it’s back on Him?
I personally think this is still the greatest nation the world has ever seen and
can continue to be if we will turn to God instead of from Him.
We are just starting a study of the book of Revelation in on Wednesday
evenings at the Ola community church. Anyone interested in what is the
future of this world are invited to join in this study.
Happy 4th of July
