What America Needs

Everyone seems to agree that America is in its best days and its worst days all rolled in to one. We are living like kings in this country yet morally and philosophically we are drifting in a sea of sharks. Billy Graham once said, "If God doesn't punish America than he is going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah." I agree with him. We are moving towards total dependence on self as God. "I believe I can fly", "I'm the greatest love of all."
If there is something higher than us than putting ourselves first before that higher being might equal disaster. I believe that as America we don't need government institutionalized morality, we don't need communism or socialism, we don't need forced religion or a state run church, we need neighbor helping neighbor again. We need churches to be able to give to causes, pass out blankets and coats, and feed the homeless. We need people held up by individuals not by government. We are drifting because we are relying on our government and our self-love to fix our nations ills. Things won't change until that stranger sitting next to us on the bus means more to us than ourselves. Jesus Christ permanently in our lives as individuals would bring about that desire to serve others. Others first, our needs last....That's what America needs.
