God Help Us All!

Do not remove the ancient landmark which your fathers have set. Prov 22:28
Sunday is the birthday of America; 234 years old!
Lot’s has changed over the past 2 centuries and much of it isn’t good.
I can live with the change in technology.
I love computers, TV, radio, iPhones, XM, GPSr’s, electricity, satellite, digital cameras and air conditioning!
But America is getting old and suffering from Alzheimer’s.
We have forgotten where we have come from and what it took to get us where we are.
We have removed the ancient landmark which our fathers have set.
From the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Our Creator is the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the Landmark that many of our founding fathers put their faith, trust, and hope in.
The Declaration ends with this: And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,
Divine Providence is the direct will of God in the campaign of mankind.
The Continental Congress appointed chaplains for itself and the armed forces, sponsored the publication of a Bible, imposed Christian morality on the armed forces, and granted public lands to promote Christianity among the Indians. National days of thanksgiving and of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” were proclaimed by Congress at least twice a year throughout the war. Congress was guided by “covenant theology,” a Reformation doctrine especially dear to New England Puritans, which held that God bound himself in an agreement with a nation and its people. This agreement stipulated that they “should be prosperous or afflicted, according as their general Obedience or Disobedience thereto appears.” Wars and revolutions were, accordingly, considered afflictions, as divine punishments for sin, from which a nation could rescue itself by repentance and reformation.
We have forgotten all that and now we have become a sick nation!
God help us all!
