Is America headed toward ultimate national disaster?

America is in the middle of a crisis that threatens to bring her to anarchy. It serves no purpose to bicker and argue the differences of political parties.

Perhaps we should consider history’s lesson. There are three causes of the downfall of nations. The first and second have already occurred in America. One, spiritual apostasy; second, moral awfulness, and the third is on it’s way, political anarchy.

I believe Gen. Douglas MacArthur was right when he said, “In this day of gathering storms, as moral deterioration of political power spreads its growing infection, it is essential that every spiritual force be mobilized to defend and preserve the religious base upon which this nation is founded; for it has been the base which has been the motivating impulse to our moral and national growth.

“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual reawakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

May God have mercy on America!
