To the editor:
Once again, our government is trying to deal with the debt ceiling crisis. Parties on both sides have their agendas to resolve this problem. To complicate matters, we are also dealing with foreign wars, international indebtedness, moral decadence and, worst of all, the polarization of the American people over what is best for the country.
Unfortunately, many Americans have forgotten the faith of our founding fathers which was based on the recognition of the Sovereign God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. If one isn’t concerned about the future of this country, you would have to think they have their heads in the sand, they have a false confidence in themselves or that our government leaders will work things out.
The only solution is to return to the concept of “One nation under God.” This must begin with a “fear of God” since the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom as contrasted to the worldly wisdom which continues to lead us to the wrong solutions. I challenge you to examine your lives to see if you can honestly say that you are pleased with your relationships without the wisdom of God. Proverbs 2:9-12 says to the one who receives the Lord’s wisdom: “Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you, delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech.”
