"The Conscience of America"

I am so grateful to have been given he blessing of being born in the United States of America. I have no doubt that this blessing was by God's grace, but it coincides with a purpose in God's plan for the salvation of the lost.  Not that I'm so special...I am no different than you if you are a believer who was born or lives in America.

Can there be any doubt that the ungodly are making philosophical and social changes that are causing the decay of the moral fabric of the USA?

For example...People (even formerly-faithful, turned apostate denominations) are redefining God's intent that marriage lived to his glory and according to his purpose is a covenant between a Man and a Woman - not "two people."  Or...another example...the majority of children (if they are allowed to be born) are born into "families" where mommy and daddy are not married even though they may live together (but usually not even that).

If we truly care about this country, then it is time for Believers to stand and speak for the Lord. Though the world tells us to sit down and shut up, calling us intolerant, bigoted hate-mongers, does this country have any hope apart from Believers being the voice of God today?

I hope this message will encourage you to see God's bigger purpose for America and how you, if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, are called to be the Conscience of America.  Let me know what you think after listening.

May God bless you!  And as the politicians love to say and we truly pray, may God Bless America! - Kirk McCormick

Inspiration from our Founding Fathers

It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.
– John Adams

The law given from Sinai was a civil and municipal as well as a moral and religious code; it contained many statutes . . . of universal application - laws essential to the existence of men in society, and most of which have been enacted by every nation which ever professed any code of laws. 
- John Quincy Adams

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters. 
– Benjamin Franklin

While just government protects all in their religious rights, true religion affords to government its surest support. 
 – George Washington
