To the Adirondack Journal:
I have read several editorials lately by Adirondack Journal Publisher Dan Alexander that state he would like to see more cooperation between the nation’s political leaders. I am sure there are many who would applaud the same actions.
However, I pause to reflect on both history and God’s Word.
A century ago, President Garfield said, “Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt it is because people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislator — It will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not find us a great nation — it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”
In other words, the people are apathetic or lazy or do not hold any higher values than those we elect.
Daniel Wester said, “I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe — our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter — from the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government; from their carelessness and negligence.”
America is immoral because America has rejected God just as his chosen people did. We have thrown God out of our education system and now anything other than God is promised.
His Word tells of the results of our choices. It warns of our demise and his judgement. We are seeing the beginnings of it now world wide in floods, fires, famine, drought and wars, but we don’t recognize them because of lack of knowledge of his Word. Study the Bible and look to the sky for Christ’s return!
