Today there are strong malevolent forces in leadership positions in America, who appear intent on destroying the America that our wise and God-fearing Founding Fathers created in response to God’s leading in our Constitutional Convention in 1786. What can we, the citizens of America, especially Christians, do to prevent that oncoming destruction of our way of life? The solution is not to count on humans. Human beings, devoid of the guidance of God Himself, created this onrushing calamity. Therefore, the solution is not to be found among humans. It is to be found only in God.
So let’s do three things:
- Pray humbly but fervently to our nation-founding God to confess, repent and ask forgiveness for our many sins personally and nationally. Then ask Him to revive His churches in America from coast to coast, so all preachers will once again be faithful teachers of His Bible, and will again “Thunder from their Pulpits” against the evil in our land, as did the vaunted “Black Robe Regiment” of the 1700s. Ask Him to provide a strong, Christ-following national figure who will be stirred by God’s Holy Spirit to lead another “Great Awakening” from border to border. Ask Him to restore our government to righteousness, so that we are led to become a God-fearing, God-following government once again. Ask Him to intervene and bring down the immoral, the profane, and the evil in our land. Ask Him to cause us all to lower the temperature of our speech against one another and to help us to show the love of God toward each other and not the prevalent hostile attitudes. The Lord’s Prayer asks God to “deliver us from evil.” Ask Him to do just that!
- Speak winsomely but forcefully in public against political immorality and attempts to change our US Constitution. A book entitled Politics According to the Bible by Dr. Wayne Grudem supports and explains Jesus’ own call for us all to be salt & light in a decaying and dark world. As part of this, we must find, encourage, and support candidates for office who believe in America as founded and want to see her return to that greatness – for God’s glory, not ours. We must also speak against and vote against immoral laws, and all policies counter to our US Constitution that abridge our faith and freedom.
- Share the grace of the good news of Jesus Christ in a winsome way with more and more people. Especially with our elected and appointed government officials, as well as judges. Let us double and redouble our best efforts. Even those who are not yet Christ-followers can see there is a need for change, but many are unaware of how to make it happen. Let us show them. And we must hurry – the time is perhaps short.
