Letter: Turn from our wicked ways
Do we voting citizens realize that our vote is in some ways a petition we are signing to encourage our leaders how to govern us? Is the following the message we want to send them?
Our government, that is in Washington, Tower of Babel is your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, in America as it is in Gomorrah. Give us this day our daily entitlements; and forgive us our debts, as we neglect our responsibilities. And lead us not into righteousness, but deliver us into the hands of our enemies. For yours is the wisdom, and the power and the glory forever.
The government that can do this will be of our own making. For our government is of the people, and by the people, and for the people; and the people is us. The condition we the people find ourselves in is the condition God has declared for all who reject his ways and turn to their own ways.
We, the most blessed nation that has ever existed on the earth, are choosing the path that led all of the great nations before us to their graves in history. And that is our destination too, unless we repent like Nineveh did when Jonah warned them.
So there is still hope and a future, if we turn from our wicked ways, back to the God who has blessed us in the past, and choose leaders who in spite of much ridicule, stand pro-life for the little ones still in the womb, and for the sanity of marriage between one male and one female, as it was in the beginning and still should be now.
