As we celebrate the 4th of July this year it is a good time to reflect on our roots. There is a saying in Christian circles that history broken down spells his-story. How God reveals His means and methods in time, as to how He wants to bring all things back to the original plan before the fall.
America was never a “perfect” nation but a light and testimony to the world that she honors God and His people (Israel).
A slow, but sure, erosion over time has been eating away at her values and roots. As she has prospered her people have changed their character and choices in how they want to live and be governed. Now many educators are changing how history is being re-written and remembered. Many of today’s citizens have never been to war, except maybe in riots on our own streets and campuses . They have never had to go through loss and a valley of tears or had a spirit of strength to fight for what they really believe is best for the nation based on our original values. We are a nation that has gone selfish and soft.
Let’s travel with Peter Marshall back in time as he traces the decline of the American Dream and see what happens when a nation compromises its beginnings and blessings.
