While America teeters on the brink of financial disaster, Gallup has found that 35% of Americans have "no opinion" about it.
As of yesterday, July 18, there were 311,792,749 people living in this country. See population clock here.
So, 109,127,462 Americans are not interested enough to have an opinion one way of the other.
Francis Schaeffer said in his book, How Then Should We Live?, "Culture and freedom is fragile."
History teaches us what not to do if we want to remain free.
Judeo- Christian principles teach us what we must do to remain free.
Yesterday, I came across a short video of Francis Schaeffer explaining how apathy destroyed Rome and the implication to our own culture.
Schaeffer says Romans tried to build upon the state---they turned away from the Christian answers and principles that were before them and there culture collapsed.
It collapsed from internal, not external weaknesses.
"Apathy," says Schaeffer, "was the chief mark of the period."
I have linked his video here. Please take a moment and watch it. So you can----
Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Free.
