Have We Gone Past the Point of No Return?

Gen. 15:16 | … the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.

 Cindy (my fiery-sidekick) and I were talking the other day about all that seems to be going on with our country. As our conversation progressed both of us wondered aloud if we as a nation have reached a point of no return. We looked at this nation’s great financial problems, our political lack of morals concerning right and wrong, perversions which are so prevalent in our society now, and how our government – both local & national seemingly goes out of their way to show public disdain concerning God. We agreed that our beloved United States is becoming more and more in appearance as a nation which is falling apart.

 Folks in the know, the poll takers, often will state that anywhere from approximately 70% to 85% of this nation claims to be Christians. I truly hope that is true, however, it seems that often many of them cannot be found – (Perhaps it is because they only consider themselves as “closet-Christians”). Many Christians and probably some non-Christians feel that this country desperately needs another Great Awakening or at least something similar to those to bring the people of this nation back to their senses. We agree with that somewhat, but, to be honest (as opposed to what, I wonder?), Christianity really needs a revival first before we can ever expect an awakening of others (2 Chron. 7:14). Thursday is the official appointed and set aside day for “National Prayer.” May I suggest that we Christians pray that God will move among us to live our lives before others so that they may see Christ, our savior, in all of our actions?

 Has the United States gone past the point of no return? I hope not! But if the depiction of those who have turned from God as described in the book of Romans 1:18-32 is any indication of a nation that has – then we too as a people may find that God has given us up because our iniquity as a nation is just about complete.
