This is a mail-merge letter to our friends –

Disturbing thoughts

We often hear, “These are the last days.” and “Things are going to keep getting worse, until the ‘end times events’ begin.”

That disturbs my soul. Many may decide, “There is no point in trying to save and restore America. It is like polishing the brass, as the Titanic sinks!” Why not focus upon evangelism and let everything else drift away?

My thought – If America is on the edge of failure, and the church does not care to get involved, she has tacitly consented to the consequence. After America fails, what is likely to happen to our liberty to evangelize?

Further – Where is the respect (or even memory) for what God has invested in the idea of a “Christian Constitutional Republic”? America is not “Christian” because it was formed by Christians. America is “Christian” because it has a Christian form!

The world (even today!) looks toward the horizon, expecting America to gallop over the hill and save the day. That is NOT because of our virtue! It is because of what we represent – Godly principles. [Faith & steadfastness, brotherly love & Christian care, diligence and industry, liberty of conscience].

Our betters bled and died in defense of these principles so that we may enjoy what we have. Are we to exchange it for a “mess of pottage”?
