The Psalmist writes "Blessed is the man [or woman] who fears the Lord, Who delights greatly in His commandments." (Psalm 112:1)
Do these politicians who repeat the worn out phrase "God bless America" fear God and delight in His commandments? Sadly, most of them do not.
America wants God’s blessing but not God. Our nation has systematically pushed Him out of the national consciousness—rejecting biblical morality, ignoring His Word, and relying on the political and entertainment arenas for moral guidance. As a result abortion, homosexuality, drug abuse, divorce, and pornography runs rampant.
Given the depth of moral bankruptcy, can God bless America? Is God angry with America? Are we on the brink of judgment rather than blessing?
In Can God Bless America? John MacArthur argues that God can bless America, but only when the clear biblical conditions are met. Includes a critical look at one approach to turning America around that’s extremely popular among Christians and political conservatives—moral reform through political action.
John MacArthur gave a powerful message at Believers Chapel in Dallas one week after five policemen were ambushed and murdered in our city. His message God and the Government is a warning to America. We are a nation that can expect the most terrible of God's judgments because we have sinned against the greatest spiritual light any nation, outside of Israel, has ever received.
Mike Gendron's Comment: Our nation needs to hear this message because we have encouraged the worship of false gods under the banner of religious freedom. God commands all nations to worship the one true God. He is the one who gave the nations their inheritance when he divided mankind and fixed the borders (Deut. 32:8). America needs to be warned that the presence of strange gods are provoking God to anger (Deut. 32:16). As a nation we have turned our backs on Him and should not longer say, "God bless America." Instead we should recognize that "God blessED America" and now we must repent! It must begin with the household of God (1 Pet. 4:17).
