Time to Change

Over the weekend I watched a historical account of the horrors of communism and unchecked government power on the Glenn Beck Program.  I was sick to my stomach as I saw how many millions of people were murdered by power hungry men.  Such acts scream out loud “This is man without God!”  Without a moral restraint, we are capable of unthinkable evil.  Yet as I watched and thanked the Lord for our country, my conscience grew even more troubled as I thought about what we have been doing for the last 37 years.

The estimates are that Communism killed 100 million people in the 20th century alone.  A staggering number, none of us can really comprehend it.  100,000,000 people murdered: it is nothing short of pure evil.

And yet, in the United States, the land of the free and the home of the brave, we have murdered 50 million of our own.  Half of that unthinkable number of unborn people in less than four decades, dead.  50,000,000 people that never had the chance to live life, fall in love, help someone else, serve God here on the earth.  50 million murdered on our soil, yet kept quiet, protected as a “right” for someone else, even celebrated by part of our society.

Can we really expect God to withhold judgment much longer? 

America, we must repent, if we want to survive.  It may not be too late.  If we turn from sin and humbly ask God for forgiveness, He is merciful and loving, and will forgive.  But if we harden our hearts and continue down this path, we will be destroyed.  How can we expect to escape judgment for our wickedness?  America, turn!  America, it is time to change.
