As America spirals down into a cultural sewer, we are comforted by knowing that we’ve read the end of the Book. We know how it ultimately ends. Meanwhile, we are told to live the life precisely as instructed by Scripture, visible standing for all that is good and actively opposing all that is evil.
Consider God’s ancient warning to a modern America:
“The wicked will go down to the grave. This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God.” Proverbs 9:17
“When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the las is joyful.” Proverbs 29:18
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice But when the wicked are in power, they groan.” Proverbs 29:2
And finally, the familiar verse,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.” Proverbs 14:23
It’s up to us as believers to be the “light of the world,” “the salt of the earth,” and positive, loving, ambassadors for God!
