America Needs Its Christian Foundation Restored

“Oh sinful nation, people weighed down with iniquity, brood of evildoers, depraved children! They have abandoned the Lord; they have despised the Holy One of Israel; they have turned their backs on him. Why do you want more beatings? Why do you keep on rebelling? The whole head is hurt, and the whole heart is sick. From the sole of the foot even to the head, no spot is uninjured  — wounds, welts, and festering sores not cleansed, bandaged, or soothed with oil. Your land is desolate, your cities burned down; foreigners devour your fields right in front of you — a desolation, like a place demolished by foreigners. “What are all your sacrifices to me?” asks the Lord. “I have had enough of burnt offerings and rams and the fat of well-fed cattle; I have no desire for the blood of bulls, lambs, or male goats. Stop bringing useless offerings. Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons and Sabbaths, and the calling of solemn assemblies  — I cannot stand iniquity with a festival. “Wash yourselves. Cleanse yourselves. Remove your evil deeds from my sight. Stop doing evil. Learn to do what is good. Pursue justice. Correct the oppressor. Defend the rights of the fatherless. Plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:4-7, 11, 13, 16-17 CSB


The liberal attempt to downplay the role Christianity played in the inception of this country is pervasive and aggressive. It refutes those who believe the pilgrims came for religious freedom to establish Christian communities. It shames those who believe the signers of our Declaration of Independence held Christian standards and believed without our nation following Biblical truths, we would become like all the other nations whose despot living results in the loss of freedom among the masses so that poverty and terror prevail among the majority of people. The church was the majority opinion in America at its inception. Now, it has lost its voice and influence for the most part, resulting in our nation increasingly looking like all other nations whose leaders are corrupt, whose media lies to protect those leaders, and whose people suffer greater and greater economic loss while losing more and more freedom to speak and live as they believe God leads. The solution? The church must return to its mandate to make disciples teaching obedience to everything Jesus commands. Fathers must own the spiritual leadership mandate in the home to instruct their children in God’s ways morning, noon, and night. In the marketplace, leaders in government, business, education, and media must insist upon conduct that reflects the ways of the One True God recorded in the Bible before whom all people will give account to determine their eternal destiny. Let the work begin if we would again experience the blessing of being a nation whose God is the Lord.
