(The heart cry of a mother and grandmother) What has happened to America? Where is the church and its influence?
The following headline blared the other day on the front page of Pravda: "American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper. It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people."
Tragic--the communists spot socialism rooted and out of control in our country quicker than many Americans--including dedicated pew warmers. One Christian Educator & Leader said, "I don't watch the news. It's too depressing."
Well that's one way to escalate the crazy-making decisions in Washington. We all sit by like "helpless sheeple" and allow our country to slide into a socialistic abyss.
For months Neil Cavuto (Fox Business & Your World with Neil Cavuto) has compared the decisions coming out of Washington to zombies drinking poisoned Kool-Aid in the movie Night Of The Living Dead. Glenn Beck & Lou Dobbs are also trying to awaken us. Neil Cavuto sadly commented, "I miss America!"
This breaks my heart--for my Treasures & Heartbeats and yes-- for your Children & Grandchildren too!
Recently our precious friend, Kirstin,a Business Major at CO State University & a voice for Christ on campus and over America said, "Many church choruses are so vague. They're dumbing- down our faith."
Resuscitation is defined as "being restored to life or consciousness." Does the church need resuscitating?
Yes, churches are dying and members are lulled and unaware. We need to return to the living faith of our forefathers.
Francois Fenelon (France - 1600's), a dedicated Christian worked amidst the wicked court of Louis XIV. Fenelon reflected his living faith in God so strongly, it was said that Louis XIV commented, "I cannot remain an unbeliever in his presence."
Please pray for the Church to awaken--and allow the Lord to resuscitate and renew us--so that we can save America for our Children & Grandchildren!
And on July 4th--let's join the Tea Parties!
