Drug use is on the increase, and our jails and prisons are overcrowded with offenders who have been guilty of drug-induced crimes. Is it no wonder when a nation turns from God it unravels with crime and distrust?
When a nation turns to military power instead of relying on God, its unraveling will only increase. Previous governments that were once world powers have been brought down because of strife within. These nations also relied on their military prowess, but they were overcome. America is witnessing this same kind of strife today, with a government that has no regard for God and the principles of Judaism and Christianity.
Can we go to prayer and ask God to forgive us? The Old Testament indicated a nation can become so evil that God told its prophets not to even pray for their country. Consequently, God rendered his vengeance upon the nation.
Is America at that crossroads now? Only time will tell for sure.
