Christian Handbook (Paperback)
Have we as a country fallen away from God?
If you ask an American who is his master, he will tell you he has none, nor any governor but Jesus Christ. (Britain's appointed governor of Conn, Jonathan Trumbull, 1773)
123 of the first 126 colleges formed in America were formed on Christian principles. (History of American Schools by Vaughn Schatzer, pg. 4)
If thou wouldst rule well, thou must rule for God, and to do that, thou must be ruled by God. Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants. (William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania)
There is no doubt that our Christian values aren't esteemed as highly today as they once were. Today parallels very closely to prophesy mentioned in (2 Timothy 3:1-7).
Is it possible that we have bought into a worldly mindset and are missing out on what God intended for us (1 John 4:4 and Romans 8:37-39)? The more we allow ourselves to be aligned with the world, the more we remove ourselves from the source.
(1 John 5:19)
We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
God is the reason for our very existence. We are all created in His image (Genesis 1:26-27). He is a God of love (Ephesians 2:4-10, Romans 5:8, Galatians 2:20, and John 3:16). Imagine what the world would be like if we treated each other per the guidelines that Jesus taught (Matthew 22:35-40, Mark 12:28-31, and Luke 10:25-28).
Seeking God apart from Jesus is missing the reality of God's love for us and our eternal salvation. The most important question in all of life is: Are you ready to meet Jesus?
