I agree 100% with this article, Thomas Sowell, and Jan Markell. But her note at the end of this fine article says exactly what I have been saying in my own posts lately! I realize that there are different 'schools of thought' and I also respect the ideas of my dear friends and other Blogs. But this is where I stand now-- and have gained some much hoped for COMFORT and peace of mind.
God has a covenant [contract/ promise] with ISRAEL, NOT AMERICA ! IMHO, MOST Americans are missing this important point! We, collectively, have no one but ourselves to blame for allowing such corruption to sneak into our once great society-- allowing abortion, the Gay agenda, special corrupt interest groups, greed, etc, letting the Administration to steal out basic Freedoms. Real biblical Christians would not have allowed bad laws to pass, or a greedy, God hating monkey to get elected. We reap what we sow. And that's the way Old Soldier Tom sees things.
(Note from Jan: Never lose hope or the heart grows sick. Continue to pray without ceasing for our great nation and that evil-doers would be brought down. But God has a covenant with Israel, not America.)
