Nation needs spiritual revival

By James Lee Elliott | Jul 31, 2014

To the editor:

Godless governmental authority and the mean-spirited attempts to silence the critics of such leave no room for common-ground compromise.

We must stop sitting back, remaining silent and expecting someone else to take action to stand up for truth.

Political correctness, special interests, United Nations-world view, socialistic mandates and compromise are breaking our Founding Fathers’ covenant with God. We must return this nation to a higher ground by returning this nation to again be the “one nation under God.”

Today, there are two segments of elected authority in the heart of this nation (Washington, D.C.). One segment believes in the founding principles of this nation and base its actions and ethic on the Constitution of the United States of America, as many in this group have a personal faith and relationship with God and the scriptures.

However, there is a segment that is totally opposite and does not hesitate to implement a liberal, socialistic, dictatorial style that desires to control all life from the womb to the tomb. They push their agenda through the use of special interest groups, youth, national news media, Hollywood, Internet professionals, professors and those seeking immigration reform as they move human lives around for purposes of future political gain and momentum.

Hope does not depend on promises of change from false Messiahs. We must remain vigilant and not allow compromises and attacks on truth in an effort to strengthen our worldly sense of immediate security.

Our Founding Fathers warned that our republic could take a wrong turn from the path of our founding principles. Today, we are experiencing that which our Founding Fathers warned us about. It should also come as no surprise that our Father which art in Heaven also issued a warning and wake up call for all truth-loving citizens:

“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 heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

This nation is in need of a spiritual awakening and understanding that true freedom, hope and salvation can only be found when we build our lives on the truth of God’s word and that we will not be shaken for the one they really war against is the only one who can show them true liberty, freedom, healing of all wounds and the answering of all questions.

As the whole world is watching to see what becomes of America, it is time we stand up, speak up and take responsibility for the direction and path that this nation is to follow. It is past time that we become totally involved in all areas of this nation’s governmental authority as we turn up the heat to return to the founding principles of this nation.

Silence is not always golden as it could be a shade of yellow if we allow fear to intimidate our emotions and our faith.
