President Obama’s remarks last summer that
is not a Christian nation, brought outrage to many Americans. I too could not believe he would appear on a worldwide platform and say something like this about the country that has afforded him such a place in our country’s history. However, if President Obama would have said instead, that “ America is no longer a God-fearing nation, I would have had to agree with him. As I step back from the drama of the day and really look at how we behave as Americans I would have to say that there is an aspect of our character that was once present in America and has been lost. In the last 50 years, America has gone through a very dramatic transition from being a nation whose God was the LORD, and who lived in the knowledge that God was a powerful and righteous overseer over their lives, to citizens who now believe they can live in any manner they desire.

This is why we are now witnessing the worst corruption in our government that has ever been witnessed by any other generation. The policies of Franklin Roosevelt actually signaled a parting of ways from God and to the Constitution of the
. Our founding fathers were adamant about the government staying in its place and not becoming a power within itself, being respectfully in submission to the Creator. However, Franklin Roosevelt began the expansion of government and it has been expanding ever since; undermining our Constitution at each stroke of the pen in the creation of expansion policies. Many decisions that would come afterward further signaled that we were heading in a wrong direction. United States
I have thought for a long time that the removal of prayer from school was the start of this departure from being a nation of God-fearing people, but the process began many years before. Still having this decision come to past showed that the leaders of our nation had become arrogant and desired to rule themselves rather than remain God-fearing men who would seek God’s direction. There was a time in our country’s history when Americans showed their dissatisfaction with policies by rising up in revolt. However, something about
was gone and it would lead us into the place we are witnessing today. Our judicial system was already taken over by men who desired their rule and not that of our God or the Constitution He inspired. What was not obvious was that the citizens of America had also abandoned the principles of our founding fathers. The legalization of abortion should have been the great red flag that would signal the end of America as was once known. I can not even imagine the heart break God experienced as He watched America begin such a vicious attack against innocent life. The cries of the many precious little souls that have been murdered goes all the way up to heaven. America
Only a rebellious and defiant people could create such a horror in the presence of an Almighty God and have no remorse. No one stood up in defense of this tragedy, not the church, not other parents, not anyone. Surely if the fear of God existed even then Americans would have taken to the streets in protest, but instead everyone kept on with life as usual. Then came the sexual revolution more evidence that the fear of God was absent from the center of American life. The liberal Left who were the culprits of these acts of rebellion continued behind the scenes taking advantage of the new American attitude that no longer feared God.
Next was the coming out of homosexuals, where men and women paraded their sexual defiance in the face of God. Not feeling that God had been radically moved at this point, the radicals begin to change what Americans believed, by creating the concept of political correctness. Political correctness replaced Americans dependence on God’s Word to instruct and lead their lives. Everything about this concept is an attack against Biblical teachings. It impacted how we thought, what we thought was right and wrong and how we viewed others. It is what caused our public school system to become an institute of indoctrination and anti-God teaching. It is what brought about the post modern thinking of moral relativism and the corruption and immorality that has destroyed our ability to be God-fearing people.
So how do we become God fearing people again? By believing that God is the absolute authority over our lives and by replacing the garbage and polluted thinking of political correctness with the Biblical teachings found in the Word of God and returning to live under God’s rule, we can experience America again. Without returning to dependence on God and abiding in His Word we will not ever experience the
our founding fathers established. Without re-educating ourselves in regards to our founding documents and electing leaders who understand these documents as well, we will not experience the America our founding fathers established. As I have been pushed into the center of the battle for America , I see a spiritual problem that continues to be neglected and over looked. So many new groups are focusing on the politics as the center of our issues, but it is not the central problem. America
The work which I believe God called me into and I have began through the Conservative Moms for
group will continue to battle the spiritual issues that have derailed our nation. Fearing God means that we respect His authority over life and His right to reign over us. It also means that we fear the consequence of His discipline and power to chastise us. We understand that there is a final judgment that has an eternal effect over our lives and we fear the consequences of His judgment. America has become a nation that no longer fears God and it is evident in many ways within American life. Remember Psalms 14:1, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good.” America
