As we in America approach the day that marks the birth of our nation, may we reflect soberly on these truths that sadly now are undeniable.
We are systematically dishonoring the spiritual foundation upon which this nation was built, no longer recognizing what was self-evident to George Washington, our first president and “Father of our Country,” who declared, “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
Many, if not most, of our political representatives show little regard for honor, integrity, decency, and collaboration, whether they wear the label Democrat or Republican, including those who have been elected to state and national office.
We are as a nation failing to cherish and care for our children, subjecting millions of them every year to either death before birth, neglect and abuse after birth, and/or raising them in broken families after they suffer abandonment by their fathers or the damage of divorce.
We are depreciating our sovereignty, showing blatant disrespect for those who shed blood for our nation by diminishing the worth of citizenship, and ignoring both the rule of law and the plight of children at our borders, while promoting a falsely skewed version of our history by erasing essential elements of our heritage, one small step at a time.
We are being deeply infected by a cancerous media, in all its forms, that sensationalizes the negative, promotes immorality as respectable, and portrays fiction as truth.
We have now reached a level of decay such that intelligent discourse and debate no longer takes place, to the point that certain types of dissent are actually being punished, in clear violation of our Bill of Rights.
And many of the above transgressions are being advanced by use of indoctrination inside our educational institutions.
We are all guilty, whether we have promoted these offenses or stood by and allowed them to take root. No nation can survive, let alone prosper, under these conditions. As Abraham Lincoln once reasserted from Scripture, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”
