It was because of this gradual decline in the obedience of the people of Israel, forgetting the Lord’s “precepts and judgments”, that God allowed Nebuchadnezzar to siege their city and take captive their people.
If we believe that the United States of America was called by God to be a special nation above all other nations, for the purpose of displaying His great power, love, and grace, can we as a nation avoid a similar fate if we turn away from God?

It is no secret that America is not the same country that it was in former days. We have become a social welfare nation. A dwelling place for the execution of the unborn for convenience. We have seen over the course of the past 40 years, the degradation of the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, and the allowance of sexual sin; men with men, and women with women. Our government spends vastly more than it takes in with a current massive increase in the national debt of well over 16 Trillion dollars.
