There were good times, now bad times

This is a little excerpt from Coach Dave Daubenmire on April 13, 2006 with NewsWithViews.com.  It talks about the good times three years back and how wrong things were actually going.

Nothing seemed beyond the reach of American ingenuity. By all appearances God’s blessings were abundantly visible. The Greatest Generation lived in a nation where Christ was honored. He was at the center of schools, the foundation in our homes, and the pillar of our government. But in their desire to do bigger things, they forgot to do better things. They traded their spiritual inheritance for a pot of stew.  They didn’t mind the store.

Somewhere, in the desire to conquer outer-space, the Greatest Generation lost control of America’s inner-space. Working to increase their wealth, they lost their values. They cleaned up the environment but polluted America’s soul. They transferred their prosperity to their children, but not their Faith. They stood silently by as Christ was removed from this nation.  Yes, my friends, they spent the inheritance.

Let’s be gut honest here, folks. There is no liberty in America anymore. Government has become the over-reaching tyrant that our Founders warned us about.  Christ, the only firm foundation, was strip-mined from America. Outwardly the ground looked the same, but underneath, out of sight, a new support system was in place, and America was slowly sinking into the swamp. The spirit of the world replaced the Spirit of the Lord. When the authority of government overthrew the authority of Christ, America lost her way.

I guess no one listened to him and took to heart what was needed to get done, cause now we are where we placed ourselves, in a hole and what looks like a pretty long way out. Read all of what he has to say, cause it’s worth it.
