We need to wake up

Published 6:31pm Monday, October 21, 2013

Dear Editor,
We, the Senior Adult Bible Study Class of New Beginning Baptist Church, are disturbed and concerned about the direction President Obama, his administration, and many state level governing bodies are carrying this country.
On the federal level, we have heard the President state that the USA is no longer a Christian nation, and it is obvious that many of this country’s leaders do not depend on the same Christian principles, the same guidance from God, and the same blessings from God that our founding fathers embraced in setting the foundation for our country to become in 237 years the greatest country this world has ever known.
For nearly five years, this administration’s liberal agenda has supported abortion, homosexual union, failed economic policies with our country’s debt growing at an uncontrollable rate, a lack of accountability that includes responsibility for the loss of American lives within our country’s boundaries and abroad in Benghazi, and federal agencies that have stepped well beyond their limits to infringe on our Constitutional rights.
At the state level, we are seeing legalization of homosexual union and the legalization of narcotic substances. Our country is on a path to destruction. We have many Biblical lessons that show God’s blessings for His people when they are obedient and many Biblical lessons that show His wrath when His people are not obedient.
We believe in God. We believe the Holy Bible is God’s Word. We believe God’s Son Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. We believe Jesus willingly yielded to crucifixion on the cross and willingly shed His blood as the sacrifice for the sins of this world. We believe Jesus was resurrected on the third day after His death. We believe He walked the earth for an additional 40 days and then ascended to Heaven and sits at the right hand of God at this very moment, and we believe that Jesus will return again when God decides it is time.
WAKE UP, CHRISTIAN AMERICA – this country is still salvageable, but it will only happen if it is God’s will.
The Christian people of this nation make up a tremendous voting block, and we can make a difference at the polls if we bond together in the name of Jesus to vote our Christian principles and beliefs, if we bond together in intercessory prayer asking God’s forgiveness for this country, and if we bond together to serve God by telling a lost world about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
May God have mercy on the United States of America,

Buddy Baird
