America has been a great nation as one of the “Super powers” and due to its wealth and influence. However, what is really virtuous in America’s History? America was started from a desire for freedom, religious freedom, freedom to practice Christianity. There were other reasons behind the actual rebellion from the English King and the English state religion, but these had their roots in both freedom and independent Christian practice. America assisted Europe…in World War 1 and 2; stopping Hitler and Nazi Germany was certainly a noble and virtous self-sacrifice. America has been a generous nation financially to many needy nations and populations, whether due to natural disasters, war, or disease, and generosity is virtous. “Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.” (Psalm 112:5). America historically has been the best friend Israel has had, and the virtue of this is found in scripture. “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Gen 12:3). America was instrumental in bringing about the end of communist USSR and the removal of the Berlin wall unleashing freedom to hundreds of thousands in Russia and East Germany. As a Christian nation American churches have sent countless missionaries all over the world with the Good News of Yeshua. “He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16:15-16).
In years to come should America cease to exist will it be remembered as a Christian nation of freedom? Powerful forces are seeking to transform America and take away individual freedoms; to make America weak morally and militarily; to install multiculturalism and hostility toward Christianity; to welcome Sharia law rather than our existing judeo-christian law as the law of the land. Will America give up its freedom and go into captivity to the state? Will America reject the God of the Bible and turn to worthless idols? America has been one nation united under God, with “In God We Trust” on our money. It has been the “Melting Pot”, as people from many other countries came here and became Americans, adopting American language, culture, laws, and receiving freedom, opportunity and citizenship in exchange. Yeshua said, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. (Mark 3:24-25). Will Americans remain united or let the lies of the enemy bring division, hatred, slavery to the State, moral decay, and the loss of free speech and truth to a once free and virtuous nation.
