A NATION WITHOUT A SOUL
"The nation which drives out God drives out its soul, and without a soul, a nation cannot survive. We have a Republic, but the Republic is declining. The evil heads of plotting men are already outlined against the sunset of our life and their swords are visible.”
—Marcus Tullius Cicero
Cicero said the above relative to the Roman Republic. The same observation is true concerning our country. And at least the same apprehension behooves those of us who cherish our Republic, our liberty and our traditional American way of life.
God and the soul of our nation is being driven out of America. There are “evil heads of plotting men” (and women) in the highest echelons of political power and in the mainstream media. Their “swords are drawn” in a ruthless, relentless effort to make “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” as much an oddity for Americans as it currently is for those living under tyrannies in other parts of the world. These “evil heads,” have been brought into focus this week with the televising of the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
The Bible says that in the last days, “Evil men shall wax worse” (2 Tim. 3:13). These are men and women who seem to be committed to waxing worse and worse. This is seen basically in (1) their inevitable and tireless promotion of those things that God hates most, and (2) their obsession with the preservation and increase of their own power. There’s no personal hypocrisy glaring enough, no lie big enough, or injustice great enough to prevent them from opposing and trying to destroy anyone or anything that stands in the way of their selfish intentions.
