Though I still feel fortunate to live in the United States of America, I cannot say that I am proud, as I grow more and more disappointed in the deterioration of morals and principles that it was founded upon. I believe that God is even more disappointed and will not put up with it much longer. I cannot even imagine how our founding fathers would react to this sad state of affairs.
“The Patriot’s Dream”
“When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.” Psalm 126:1
In the famous song, “O Beautiful for Spacious Skies,” the fourth stanza reads:
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
The chorus proclaims: America! America! God shed His grace on thee…
The Psalmist said when the deliverance came it was like a dream. People had to pinch themselves to see if they were awake or still asleep. Laughter and singing returned to their regimen and they recognized the Redeemer’s hand again in their lives.
I wonder if the patriots of America’s storied past ever dreamed that marriage would be desecrated by same-gender couples being united in unholy matrimony? I wonder if they dreamed “Ding-Dongs” and “Ho-Hos” would be banned and marijuana would legalized? I wonder if their dreams included the sacrilege of sacrificing upwards of 55 million babies aborted to appease the gods of a society gone mad? I wonder if they dreamt about the trampling under of the Constitution by crazed Socialists, proud politicians, leftist leaders and a nation of immoral, devil-possessed actors, musicians, media types and citizens weaned on cable television, prurient literature and rock music? I don’t think that was the founding fathers’ dream at all–far from it! It has become a nightmare!
May God forgive us, heal us, help us and cleanse us and “Turn again our captivity,…” (vs. 4)
