What we need as a nation is a national coming back to God!
What we rationalize and call sin is pure folly. Man’s wisdom for a cure for our nation is useless. Describing sin by our determination is nothing more than spitting into the wind.
There has already been a rulebook that is a measuring guide. It is the standard. It is plain and simple for all to understand. You don’t have to try and figure out what God says about sin. One size fits all.
What we are speaks so loudly most people can’t hear a word we say. Our lifestyles are lying and lax living. God himself describes us in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “There is not a just man upon earth that doeth good and sinneth not.” Romans 3:10 tells us, “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one.”
We are without excuse and without remedy in our own merit. God’s comprehension portrait of or life is thusly: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great upon the earth, and that the imagination of their hearts was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5-6)
Left to your directing, you are sure to do and act wrong. You are born with a nature to sin, and sin you surely will.
Glorious rays of hope are on the horizon. Hopeless and helpless, God has provided for our eternal salvation. II Corinthians 5:21 so clearly reads, “For God has made Jesus, His son, to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God is Jesus.”
Marvel to marvels that a Holy God makes wholly people holy again. That is you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved, for with the heart man believeth until righteous, but with the mouth confession is made with salvation.
