"America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law!
Don't dig out your bibles, friends-the words above are from America The Beautiful, which some of us sang
at the county court house just a few minutes ago.
God mend America's every flaw...may take a while. But it will happen, and that is why I'm such a cheerful charlie to this day.
Just like compound interest, compounded sins upon sins upon-you get the idea-mark this country along with the rest of the world for Judgement.
The greatest sin that God will judge? Idolatry. Sounds kind of old fashioned, right?
Idolatry. Worship of anything instead of God. It made number one on God's list:
" 1Then God spoke all these words, saying,
2“I am the LORD your God, who
brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
3“You shall have no other
gods before Me." Exodus 20:1-3
This doesn't apply merely to Jews and Christians, as God is the God of all Creation, everyone and all that you know. He is your God, too.
And He will mend the every flaw of His Creation as He sees fit: Returning to rule the nations with an iron rod, putting an end to all troubles, sin and flaws.
Until that day, we stand our ground, live as peaceably as we can in the middle of a corrupt idolatrous world,
praying for our nations, that they will be humbled and will seek God and His guidance, His Grace, His Salvation. And what is good for a country is also good for a person. That is my prayer today.
