The United States of America, without God’s moral standards, cannot stand.


I think the “whale is breaking through the strongest cords of our Constitution” (see quote below) while we sit and watch. Just like prophets of Israel and Judah, in the divided kingdom of the Old Testament, we have had those who warned us. Just like those living in Israel and Judah, between 900 and 596 BC, we have not listened to them. Will we continue to follow their path to destruction, or will we rise up, acknowledge our negligence and defiance of God?

“[W]ithout morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure … are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”    (Charles Carroll of Carrollton, United States Founding Father, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Bernard C. Steiner, “The Life and Correspondence of James McHenry”, (Cleveland: The Burrows Brothers, 1907), p. 475, to James McHenry on November 4, 1800.)

“…this country will be the most miserable habitation in the [world]; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”     (Message from John Adams to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts, John Adams, October 11, 1798)

I do not think we would measure up as a moral nation in the eyes of God, nor in the eyes of Charles Carrol or John Adams.

Are we allowing the great, blessed country of the United States of America to be torn apart from within? Can we even stop it? Can we?
