Skip to comments.Fox News: Can God bless a Godless America?
Posted on 05/07/2014 2:53:03 PM PDT by xzins
The White House is waging an all-out assault on religious liberty. Public schools are indoctrinating our children with the gospel of secularism. Hollywood is spewing toxins into our homes. The soundtrack of our lives is a pulsating mix of sex and violence and filth. The American family is in ruins. What was once wrong is now right and what was once right is now wrong.
Our nation stands on a precipice. Freedom hangs in the balance. We live in a postmodern and post-God nation. The perfect storm is brewing. Do not be deceived. There may be a war on religious liberty, but the true target is Christianity.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Kelly Shackelford, president of Liberty Institute, penned an open letter to the American people last year. Hostility against religious liberty has reached an all-time high, they warned. The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.
The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.
Our Founding Fathers considered religious liberty our first freedom, and the bedrock upon which all other freedoms rest, the men wrote. They understood that ones right to worship God and follow his conscience according to the principles of his religious faith was foundational to civic tranquility. A man whose religious faith was repressed could never be a loyal citizen since the state was usurping his first allegiance and costing him his primary freedom. This is one of the most important distinctions that makes America an exceptional nation -- if not the most important.
Both groups document more than 600 recent examples of religious hostility. Six hundred. American stories. Our stories. Their documentation included many stories I have covered during my career at Fox News Channel.

This is an excellent article. Too bad I had to excerpt it. It is well worth going to the link and reading.
yes , He can
Just as in Sodom , He spared a few .
It sure would be cool to see His wrath fall upon the others again ;^)
Then they might believe ( the survivors , if any )
He did bless America.. before America crapped all over that blessing. I have no doubt He CAN bless it again.. my question is, would He want to?
2 Chronicles 7:14
New King James Version (NKJV)
14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
From the article:
“A while back Rev. Billy Graham penned a letter expressing his dismay over the moral decline of the nation, declaring that his heart aches for America and its deceived people.
The farther we get from God, the more the world spirals out of control, Graham wrote, noting that the nation seems to be going out of its way to remove God from the public arena. Just a few weeks ago in a prominent city in the South, Christian chaplains who serve the police department were ordered to no longer mention the Name of Jesus in prayer, he wrote, noting that officers were only allowed to pray to the being in the room.
Ping to the above and the link. This is very well written.
Meanwhile, on the ad sidebars for foxnews.com, we find:
* Best (and worst) beach bods
* More ‘Thrones’ raunch on TV?
* Lovato’s revealing selfie
* Willow Smith, Moises Arias Raise Eyebrows With Bed Pics
The bible says: “Where iniquity doth abound, grace doth much more abound.”
IOW, it is great that they have this shining light article from one of their own writers in the midst of all that confusion.
The light shined in the darkness and the darkness could not overcome it.
Also, aren't you glad that Free Republic doesn't have ads, UYM?

Just quoting the Unrevised God Version.
No, God does not bless a Godless country. Any more than he blesses an individual who rejects Him, and lives evil.
You might think again. Read Matthew 25 from verse 31. Both the sheep and the goats are surprised.
καὶ τὸ φῶς ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ φαίνει, καὶ ἡ σκοτία αὐτὸ οὐ κατέλαβεν.
It's our own fault. We got fat, lazy and stupid. IMO it's too far gone to save.
We're like children who have autonomy, and we've gone FUBAR.
Can God bless a godless nation? Of course He can. He can do anything He chooses that is not against His nature. Will He? Again, yes. He's blessing us everyday that He doesn't allow us to be destroyed, raped and pillaged by infidels. But at some point, unless we repent, he's likely to turn His face against us. And it doesn't look like we're anywhere near repenting.
Faithful Christians are on an out-of-control bus and all that can be done is to pray and hold tight.
God is not sinking America.
Socialism is sinking America.
Same as it did in every country where socialism was/is tried.
“and light shineth in the darkness
and the darkness did not comprehend it”
OK, I cheated and looked it up...
I'm one of those self employed people that obama decided shouldn't have the health insurance I liked. My policy was canceled and initially I thought my only choice was to go through one of the exchanges. If I did that I would end up paying for other peoples abortions, have the govt deciding what's good for me, and be limited to doctors and hospitals I don't want to go to.
I was told about a Christian Healthcare Co-Op (Medi-Share) by another Christian. My wife and I joined the Co-Op and found a Concierge Doctor. Having done this has opened my eyes. We don't have to just take it and complain.
We should be finding every way possible to separate ourselves from being connected to this secular world. I don't see things turning around. Eventually Christians will have to find a State, or group of States, that peacefully separate from the current USA. There will be no place for us here if we stay truthful to teachings we've been given by God in Scripture. In the meantime we should be segregating our financial dealings and most social activities from the anti-Christian institutions and people.
