(Can) God Bless America (?)

american flagAs our nation celebrates its 238th birthday, I am intrigue by the number of church marquees I’ve seen with the message: “God Bless America!” But, at the time of this writing, 19 states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage. In response to that, my question is: Can God bless America? The Bible says in Psalm 33:12; “Blessed in the nation whose God is the LORD.” The same Bible also has a passage in Psalm 9:17 that say: “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”

The Bible is clear: God will not bless sin! Look at where we are as a country! We have legalized the killing of the innocent unborn! The combination of drugs and guns contribute to America being one of the most violent nations on the planet! We have the highest incarceration rate and inmate percentage in the whole world! And now we are in the process of legally redefining the Divine institution of marriage! Can God really bless America?

There was a time in this country when everyone did not profess to be Christian, but at least they respected Christian values. All sinners didn’t repent, but at least they didn’t try to make themselves not sinners by redefining sin!

I know this is the land where everyone has a right to express their own opinion, but God’s Word IS NOT an opinion; it’s God’s Word and God’s Word is God’s Law! Can God bless America? Yes God can and God will; but only when and if America repents and truly becomes one nation under God!
