When unemployment was high and a civil war was about to break what did the President of the US recommend in 1860?
Maybe instead of looking to Government we and our government need to be looking to God. In March of '09 was posted America come back to the Savior of your forefathers.... with similar charts as one's below but for March. Now we are in July and it's only getting worse. In that post were made these comments:
"America put the Iraq war and the economy above the lives of the unborn, traditional biblical family values and the faith of our forefathers as the most important issues in the last two elections of 2006 and 2008. As a result in 2007 we got our first democrat lead congress in awhile because of the war and in 2008 we got our first democrat President in awhile because of the economy."
"Notice that most of these individuals were not elected because of their known support for the lives of the unborn or for their support of biblical family values nor their support of the faith of our forefathers except maybe the last one in speech alone. (See Party Platform comparison and many more voter guides for Presidential race, Congressional races and Ballot Initiatives!! for evidence of the two party's positions on these issues.) Rather they were elected at the expense of those issues as they made big campaign promises thru our own bad media choices which did not encourage one thought toward Godly wisdom on any of these issues when we should have been seeking His wisdom the most and a majority of us bought it."
"As Thomas Jefferson said, "can the liberties of a nation be thought secured..." and "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just". And Frederick Douglass concurs "I have one great political idea....I feel it my duty to do all in my power to infuse this idea into the public mind....It is in substance, "Righteousness exalteth a nation; sin is a reproach to any people"
Also, see When unemployment was high and a civil war was about to break what did the President of the US recommend in 1860? for the real answer to our problems and may we vote and act like it.
For more Godly wisdom from our forefathers see American Remembrance and for God's way of repentance, faith and salvation may he grant America The Best New Year's Gift (a sermon preached by George Whitefield who was one of the most widely recognized American public figures before George Washington and whom Benjamin Franklin wrote of saying, "I knew him intimately upwards of thirty years. His integrity, disinterestedness and indefatigable zeal in prosecuting every good work I have never seen equaled and shall never see excelled")
May God grant America The Best New Year's Gift she can offer her Creator before we continue to find out more of what a godless society has to offer mankind. We need Divine wisdom like we needed it in the historical past and time and time again in that past He pulled America thru when we called on Him for wisdom.
