There are so many articles in our papers, radios and television covering the myriad of problems and woes that we, as a nation, are facing daily with no solutions to be found.

I would like to, for a moment, offer my thoughts from a Christian perspective. All of our troubles, as a nation, are tremendously vital to our survival, but we as a people, have missed the one underlying cause. America has rejected our creator and all the beliefs and traditions that he gave us.

We have taken his name out of our schools and all public places. We've banned prayer at public functions, even in our Pledge of Allegiance where the phrase "under God" has been deleted. We have lowered our morals to the nonexistent level. The list of transgressions against God goes on.

There is a scripture in the Bible that tells of a time when men will say; "Let's throw off the shackles of God; we will not have this God to rule over us." It goes on to say that almighty God will laugh and will put man into derision. We can not expect our creator to bless a nation that refuses to honor him. Things we face in this life are temporal at best.

If America does not reaffirm our faith and allegiance to the only one who can truly "Heal our Land" America is lost. May Almighty God have mercy on us all.
