God's way is to care for all his children

I find it interesting that my fellow Christians are sure that this nation is going to fall because of all the sexual sins being committed.

But as I read the Bible, I see God caused the nation of Israel to be conquered because they "oppress the foreigners, oppress the fatherless and the widow" Jeremiah 7:6.

As we rail against children who are fleeing evil in their own countries, we want every fetus to come to term but refuse to take care of the resulting child and as we make laws against single mothers and call them "takers," this, I believe, will be God's indictment against us.

Christ followers tend to remove themselves from overt sexual sins, but they next stand up and evoke God as they persecute the very people God says we are to help.

I believe God started America and people here tend to take care of people, but then, when our pocketbooks get touched, scream about responsibility and fiscal balance.

This is not God's way!
