Pray and remember sacrifices

In the book "Take Back America" by John Fahn, it states:"We've become immoral, fat, lazy and stupid." This is the truth, I'm afraid. Our Constitution has been shredded. Spending is outrageous. Individual rights and group rights are stolen. Trust in government -- its people -- has dissipated. Defense of our country is decimated. Tolerance of anything and everything is accepted, and crimes and distortion are problematic. Family values are being eroded/destroyed. Our Christian faith is being polluted. Our Holy God's Sovereignty is being questioned and squashed.

Some of my words have been added to his message, but we know we are on a crash course of destruction of our faith and freedom. Unless God intervenes and rescues us this great country we have known will never be known to our children, grandchildren and prodigy. But our Lord promises to do this.

So concerned citizens, there's no time to waste in our fight to take America back. May God bless us again as we ask for His forgiveness and guidance. As 2 Chronicles 7:14 states: "If my people who are called by my name 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."

An important American quote: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." -- Benjamin Franklin.

Our great Founding Fathers sacrificed their families' future and lives to protect our liberty and freedom. We must remember those sacrifices.
