This review is from: Be the People: A Call to Reclaim America’s Faith and Promise (Kindle Edition)
“The cold winds of change sweeping through Washington, D.C., and our nation are damning evidence that even though we say we believe in God, we live like atheists. We consider God to be either nonexistent or irrelevant–and certainly not in the business of distributing rewards and punishments. The solemn vows of faith that once impelled our leaders to bravery and provided the solid principles upon which our country was founded have been broken and abandoned to the winds. The virtues produced by faith in God have been banished from our borders.”
Although in general I agree that the author’s intent is summed up in her quote here, my only hang up is this: We cannot expect non Christians to act like Christians. It is theologically impossible if we are using the Holy Bible as our source for this expectation of America.
She is calling on the historically Christian nation to revert to its Christian roots in government, of which I agree is glaring at us as the obvious solution to the nation’s problems. She goes on to illuminate several of the social and economical issues that plague our nation and how our solution is found in scripture and the outcome historically is failure and destruction if avoided as seen in Scripture.
Again we need Jesus, we have millions that do not know Christ within the borders and influencing our very culture to its core, so I agree Jesus is the solution, but it won’t be a reality unless we see that Christian culture and Christian faith must go hand in hand, because ultimately the country is not who we owe our allegiance to, it is to Christ alone.
