We are living in a time of spiritual decline, with a decay of biblical belief and practice. Our second president, John Adams, said “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
From “sea to shining sea,” we have allowed faith and family to be trashed and denigrated at every turn and enabled an encroaching government that is increasingly hostile to religious freedoms and families. This undermines our “moral and religious people.”
The Good News of Jesus Christ is that we can have right standing with God now and the “hope” of eternal life ahead. The Bible says, “everyone who has this hope in him, purifies himself” (1 Jn.3:3). True biblical believers seek to live in purity and not in unworthy pursuits or purposes.
Let us all return to the God of our forefathers and again follow the beliefs and practices of a “moral and religious people.”
