We Live in the Same Country

Yesterday I was at a life chain praying along Route 17 in front of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church in N. Myrtle Beach , SC when a lady pulled into the parking lot and got out screaming at us that we had no right. Sorry, lady but we have the right in the Constitution; the First Amendment has not been overthrown by the courts yet. Not only do we have the right but we are morally obligated by the Bible. In the book of Ezekiel God promises that we would be punished if we fail to warn sinners.

More importantly we live in the same country. God is not going to just stand back and let us continue to slaughter His children. Read the Old Testament. When the people of Israel and Judah departed from God He stopped protecting them and they were conquered.

America did not become the greatest country in history because of our genius or military prowess. Ask any soldier who served in World War II, Korea or Vietnam what snafu means. We became great because God has blessed this nation.

We are a country desperately in need of God’s blessing. Look at all that has happened in this country. We are vulnerable to terrorism as NY, Seaside Heights, Boston and Fort Hood has proven. We are vulnerable to national disasters. Remember Sandy, Katrina, the flooding that seems to take place everywhere, the fires in the West that seem to come every summer, the rash of tornadoes that occur every year. Right now the East Coast is nervously watching Hurricane Matthew and Southern California has an earthquake warning.

I know the president and other politicians will blame all of this on global warning but isn’t it just as likely that God is calling for our attention. The world has never been so sinful. We make the ancient Israelites look virtuous compared to us. We are lucky that God has not destroyed us yet. Maybe if you remember the story of Sodom and Gomorrah God has withheld His wrath because of those who stand for morality, who stand against the sinfulness of modern Americans.

We live in the same country. All of us are threatened by terrorism and natural disasters. All of us need God’s blessing and protection. We do have a right to stand against Abortion .
