"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people."

- Proverbs 14:34

In this generation we have witnessed the decline of Christianity. Only twenty percent of Americans now attend church and only fifteen percent cling to the bible as absolute truth. It should not surprise us that during this same time period, our nation has experienced a similar steep decline in morality, especially in these last few years. Our first president said, “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. “ James Madison wrote, “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not on the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all… to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” We read in the Scripture, “Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.” America has changed, but God has not. For those who come to Christ for salvation, He still forgives their sin, changes their lives and establishes in each one a biblical moral base. Praise the Lord, and be encouraged!
