Last week, I spoke about choices; how having a choice in any matter is a special gift from God, and it is our duty to make sure we use that gift properly.

In just nine days, we Americans are going to be faced with one of the most important, and one of the most spiritual, choices we have ever been faced with. And for the future of our very nation, it is imperative that we get it right, for if we don’t, the damage will be forever cast.

Of course, I am talking about the presidential election. Let me put it another way: We are going to elect a man who will, by vestige of his office alone, become the most powerful man in the world. And we had better be very careful in whom we elect, because this is the most dangerous time in America’s history.

The outcome of this particular election will either bring more chaos into our nation or it will correct the downward spiral we are on. It will be fodder for critics or it will be a bright horizon for our future.

Our nation is truly at a crossroads in its history. And the choices we make in the next few months will surely determine our destiny for many years to come. If America ends up in the graveyard of civilizations, it will be because of her own doing. There will be nobody to blame it on but us; her citizens.

What is the bottom line? The bottom line is that we give lip service to the truth in God’s word, but we too often do not follow that up with any real belief or action. Do we, or do we not, fully and truly believe in God’s word?

PSALM 33:12 informs us,

‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.’

That is a very short and extremely easy verse to understand. If God is the Lord of a nation, that nation will be blessed beyond comprehension. Look at our nation as an example. We put God over this nation from its very inception, and look how we have been blessed!

But now, we are trying our best to kick God out of our existence. We are making it harder and harder for Christians to hear the unabated word of God, and we are doing even more to take the mention of God’s name out of our language.

‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.’

Of course the opposite would be, ‘Cursed is the nation whose God is not the Lord.’

Today, I want to take a look at where our nation is and compare it with where the Bible says we should be. Now, before I start, let me say that I do not represent either party. I only represent the Word of God. And God’s Word will lead us in every area of our society – if we will let it.

The Word of God will guide us through the abortion quagmire our nation has subjected ourselves to; it will guide us through the issues of war that is splitting our nation apart; and it will steer us through the economic hardships we are faced with today.

Let me start by examining what is happening in America’s school in regards to God’s Word.

1. IS GOD ALLOWED IN OUR SCHOOLS?

Despite what you hear today, our Founding Fathers did base this nation upon Jesus Christ as the Savior and Son of God. All I will say in defense of that is: If you doubt my statement, read any of the many charters and documents they wrote as they formed this nation.

George Washington is quoted as saying that it would be impossible to govern America without the Bible as a guide, or God as a leader.

The textbook of choice for America in its schools was the Bible. As a matter of fact, up until the early 1950’s the Bible was still being taught in some schools in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and some other states.

Isn’t it a coincidence that discipline in school, and in society overall, has spiraled downward just since the Bible was yanked out of our schools? When you refuse to teach children right from wrong, they have no moral compass to base their lives upon. And the end result will always be bad. Don’t take my word for it; look around you!

Spitballs and truancy used to be our schools biggest problems. Today, our kids are being raped on school campuses, dope is found in abundance, and all kinds of weapons are found every day of the week.

Let’s take a good objective look at most of our colleges in America. They actually teach that America is wrong in its socio-economic beliefs. They teach their students that the problems America is facing with other nations have all been brought on by ourselves and our refusal to accept other people’s beliefs as valid as our own.
