America has turned its back on God

— — Why is America suffering? In God’s word (the Bible) it says in II Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

We have lost the right to Bible in schools, prayer in schools and public places. Now they want to take God’s name from our currency, Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag, the Ten Commandments in public places, and the words “Christmas” and “Easter.” But, the idiots of our so-called Supreme Court want to make same-sex marriages legal. Members of our political government are following suit. Take a few minutes, open the Bible and read Genesis 1:27, 2:22, Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, Romans 1:26-28 and tell a Christian man or woman they are stupid. The New England states, state of Washington and Iowa have made this practice legal.

Just think, hurricanes doing severe damage in and around New England, extremely large landslides in Washington. Iowa is next? What will it be? People need to heed God’s warning.

They are trying to take away our rights to keep and bear arms (guns) to protect ourselves, hunt and recreational purposes.

The cost of groceries, gasoline, health care, medications, etc., are putting financial burdens on a lot of people. We are standing idle while Iran, North Korea and China are proposing threats against us.

Television programs, movies and even commercials have become so filthy it is a shame our children are exposed to this type of trash. One could go on with other issues but time and space are needed.

America, turn back to God! Some say we have pushed God out of America. No we have not! God has always been here. The true fact is, we have turned our back on God and forsaken his word. America, Christians, get on your knees and pray for this nation. He will keep his promise.
