Is God Finished With America Yet?

Last week Senator Ted Cruz announced he is running for President of the United States.

Among other things, he told the tens of thousands gathered at Liberty University he believes "God is not finished with America yet."

Not everyone agrees. What do you think?

For the past several years a chorus of world voices have been predicting the demise of America---some probably hoping for our demise. Some in our own country agree.

George Packer, who is widely read in Europe and elsewhere, wrote an in depth article on the subject for the British paper The Guardian titled, "Decline and Fall: How American Society Unravelled."

He writes, "In about 1978, America's character changed."

What follows is the chronicle of a long list of what America has done wrong over the past several decades. Interestingly, Packer writes that our institutions are so strong that in spite of all the mistakes America has made, we have still had within us to power to "self correct."

He now questions whether our society is too unraveled to "self correct."

More important than what he thinks is what do you and I think?

Most important: What Does God think?


I chose to reference Packer because he is a well known global voice and covered the issues in America pretty thoroughly and carefully.

His, and others, conclusions seem to coalesce around America's most pressing current issues.

He concludes with this:

"It is no wonder that more and more Americans believe the game is rigged. It is no wonder that they buy houses they cannot afford and then walk away from the mortgage when they can no longer pay. Once the social contract is shredded, once the deal is off, only suckers still play by the rules."

There is no question the fabric of our society has been torn---ripped. And there is a good number of people who no longer play by the rules, including some of the highest elected offices in our country.

Packer, as many others, is looking at the issues only through the lens of "self correction."

America is unique in that we were founded on principles, not merely ideas. Judeo-Christian values, not merely an ancient set of rules.

Is our social contract and Constitution so shredded that only suckers are playing by the rules?

Is God finished with America? I don't believe He is.

I'm talking about what I believe is the most important issues in our culture today on the radio.

I'm talking about the cycle of nations and how divine intervention has changed the course of human events in the past. We are also talking about the decline of values in our culture---and more importantly, how God can reverse the decline and continue to use America as the light in the darkness, the city on the hill, and salt and light in a decaying world.

Cultural decline is inevitable---unless we return to God's principles and Truth. A spiritual restoration must precede a political restoration.

Join me live on the radio from any where in the world this morning and every morning at 9:AM PDT, and rebroadcast at 7:30 PM PDT. Here's how.

Be Informed. Be Encouraged. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

  1. Evidently Sen. Ted Cruz has the same problem of not being Constitutionally qualified to be President as Barack Obama has. According to Attorney, Professor of Law, and Constitutional scholar Dr. Herb Titus, Sen. Cruz has only one parent that is a US citizen and he was not born in the U.S. The Constitution requires that the President be a natural born citizen which means both parents must be US citizens. This came directly out of the Bible and the Old Testament Law . The Question is will we hold Sen. Cruz accountable to the rule of Law, the Constitution, or will we not. Spokane

    1. If what you are saying is correct about the law then yes, I believe we should hold to the constitution. I certainly like the things Ted Cruz was saying that I heard, but we must return to the constitution.
      If not, what have we really won?

    2. No, we need to make an exception for him. He would lead is back to Chrstianity. It's not his fault he was born in Canada.

  2. I am afraid we now have the brand of Christianity you want to get back too. God gave us the law and the rules but we have added to them with our exceptions and redefining. Jesus spend his entire ministry at odds with the sadducees and the Pharisees who had so added to the word with their exceptions and changes that the law had been totally perverted. Remember Jesus the sinless one who was trying to restore the Law, by a democratic voice vote of the people took the place of a law breaker and was put to death on the cross. The same has been done by Congress to the Constitution. God's law and Constitutional law have been replaced by exception after exception . Steve Spokane
