Introduction-

What is the greatest threat to American security

today?

-Is it ElChida? or

-Is it Osoma Ben Laden? or

-Is it Iran, or North Korea, or some other

country?

I don’t believe that it is any of the above. I be-

lieve that the greatest threat that we face as a

nation today is our forgetfulness of God.

First, this morning, let’s consider some EVIDENC-

ES of our country forgetting God:

-the removal of the ten commandments, and all

other references from governmental buildings, court

rulings, and the mass media.

-the thousands of internet child abductions for

sexual gradification by scores of men in this nation.

-the end of saying "One Nation Under God" in the

pledge of allegiance, and the removal of prayer from

many of our school and social functions.

-the decisions of the Supreme Court against the

protection of the rights of the unborn.

-the removal and outright disregard of the re-

ligious lives of our ancestors, and the founders of

this country who established this nation as a

Christian nation.

-the loss of our freedoms, along with the taking

away of many programs that helped the poor and needy,

with unlawful and unjust political power.

-the support of gay rights, and other activist

groups, who are in direct opposition to God and all

that is holy.

-the rise in immorality, including living togeth-

er outside of marriage, as now being socially accept-

able, along with the promotion of sexual immorality

in all forms of medai and entertainment, with the

mockery of Christian values and standards.

So, it is clear. Many in America have forsaken

God. It used to be an uncommon thing to have a fun-

eral for someone who did not profess any faith in

God, but now it is becoming more and more prevelant.

As Hosea the Old Testament prophet told the people

of Israel-"...there is no truth, nor mercy, nor

knowledge of God in the land. My people are destroy-

ed for lack of knowledge:"(Hosea, chp. 4) Many in

our generation today are growing up without being

taught any moral values, or ever hearing the Bible

read, or bowing the knee in prayer to God. We have

forgotten God!

Not only can a nation forget God. A church can

also forget God, and substitute ritual and "religion"

for true spiriutal worship. It’s so sad to see a

church that is puffed up in pride, caring only for

itself, and showing no real concern or compassion

for a lost world. A church can be filled with acti-

vities, and void of the Spirit of God. Judgment must

first begin with the house of God. What will be the

end of those who make no claim of knowing God?

An individual can also forget God. It is a

disturbing and agonizing thought for the true Christ-

ian to realize that in some areas of his life he has

forgotten God.

Israel did just that in the text that I read

to you at the beginning of this message. They forgot

God’s power, and blessing, and faithfulness, and

love, and righteousness. Down, Down, Down the nation

plunged, further and further into a cesspool of ini-
