God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever." --- Thomas Jefferson

What is happening in the US? Are we turning away from God, as many claim, or are we witnessing just the opposite? Are we seeing the error of our ways and turning towards Him?

Are we, as a nation, witnessing a Christian restoration or an atheist transformation?

I think the answer is that both forces are engaged in a great struggle. The progressive nature of our courts combined with the misinterpretation of our Bill of Rights, as well as the Fourteenth Amendment, and combined with the enormous power of the liberal media have allowed the atheist movement to have greater force than it deserves. To counter that movement, Christians and Christian organizations must fight against incredible odds, most notably the courts, the "wall of separation," and the liberally-biased media. It comes as no surprise that our government and the "establishment" is harboring an increasing hostility towards faith. Yet the Christian resistance is growing.

We've taken God out of our schools and out of our seats of government. We've removed crosses and other Christian symbols from public squares and from national cemeteries. We've perverted the meaning of the First Amendment with a phrase that appears nowhere in the Constitution - the "Wall of Separation" - so that we can systematically remove important and traditional human values from society and avoid expensive lawsuits. The First Amendment was not written to protect people and their laws from religious values but rather it was written to protect those values from government and government tyranny. We've watched as a Culture of Immorality has enveloped the country starting with the counter-culture revolution of the 1960s and are suffering from its natural consequences. Yet churches are growing larger. In 1973, the Supreme Court announced that women can kill their unborn under the constitutional protection of "privacy," but 39 years later, the pro-life voice grows louder and stronger.

We have a huge segment of society benefitting from the hard work, property, and taxation of others. About 50% of Americans are being used to support the other 50% in a lifestyle that the government continues to redefine and upgrade. This is institutionalized sloth and envy -- two of the Christian mortal sins. Some say it is the new form of slavery. Indeed, every person who benefits from the effort and property of another is himself a petty tyrant and a slave master. Yet as the entitlement ranks increase, the outrage against such human decay builds and people are urging a return to the policies of ethics, morality, and personal responsibility. As long as people can embrace these values, there is the hope of earned success and human dignity.

    I wouldn't know how to assign percentages. We certainly are not the Christian nation we were in the 1950's. Today 'salt and light' continues but has muted itself by inches to the mantra of tolerence. (Go along to get along.) Christianity needs to reclaim its voice and its place. mantra of the 60 s

    Yes, I think in some respects we have turned our backs on God and are seeing we are witnessing his wrath. Christian resistance is growing in the America.They have taken God out of schools. You don't see the cross like we used to. Know they say Happy Holidays at Christmas what's up with That we used to say, "Merry Christmas!" America is trying to hard to be to Politico correct and and not offend the foreigners who now invest our country. Such as the Arabs, India, Taliban and all those others who do not believe in Christiananity. My view we need to go back to being good Christians and if these FOREIGNERS. Have you heard about all these CHARTER SCHOOLS IN AMERICA THAT ARE OWNED AND RAN BY FOREIGN MUSLIM. THEY ARE TEACHING AMERICAN CHILDREN!!! THEY DON'T HIRE AMERICAN TEACHER THEY BRING THEIR OWN OVER BECAUSE THEY ARE BETTER TEACHER!!!!!

    Maybe we need to stop acting like America is God's favorite country (found nowhere in the bible).

    People are now trying to "remove" him. This is one reason God has stepped back. He said if we turned to him he would heal our land and us. But more and more people are backing away from God and now look at what has happened. The Book of Revelation has it all laid out. I believe we're in the End Times, but where on the calendar I don't know. But, we must keep praying, because eventually all evil will cease and God will create a new Heaven and Earth.
