America the beautiful?

America the beautiful?

Any non-bias man who knows anything about the heritage of our country knows that no matter if they like it or not this country was founded on Biblical principles by devout Christians who knew that when a country keeps God 1st it will prosper and when a country removes the teachings of the bible from society it will fail.

I am not going to rant about our national debt, our alcoholism, our drug abuse, or the fact that we as a nation murder over one and a half million babies every year, I do not believe that we as Christians cannot blame the lawmakers, or the public schools, or the other denominations.

We as Christians were commanded by Christ Himself to be a light to the world (Matthew 5:14-16) It is not the worlds job to be a shining beacon of Gods righteousness, its ours, the the prince of this earth is set on destruction and we are shocked and amazed when his children do not act right?
Christians have failed America, we have paid back those Godly men who died before us to give us freedom by sitting by idle while the devil destroys this nation. Great men of God in the past gave their lives for our freedom and we repay them with cowardice. We fear unpopularity, we fear job loss, we fear the faces of those who we are sent to be a witness to, yet God said
Jeremiah 1:17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.
Jer 1:18 For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.
Jer 1:19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.

We have become a religion of cowards in America, we are constantly on the defensive in society today, we act as if because we believe that it is the end times, that that means we dont have to work as hard for God? Shameful Jesus Christ said

Luk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Luk 6:23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. 
This is the ONLY, ONLY place in the bible where we are commanded to "Leap for joy". Yet we fear a persecution here in America that isn't worthy to be called persecution, here no one is killed for their faith, no one is tortured, no one of us in America have been stoned or boiled for our faith and yet we fear the faces of those we are meant to lead to Christ. Those who have gone before us deserve better from us, Christ deserves far better than this, we must wake up and unite in America under the banner of Christ and refuse to compromise and back down, we must have personal revival in our churches before we can expect national revival to happen.
