Dr. James White, of Alpha & Omega Ministries, comments, from a sound, conservative, biblical perspective, on some of the recent happenings in the US of A.

Personally, we deserve a whole lot worse than what we have now, and I pretty much believe we'll get it. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 "1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power..."

2nd Timothy 3

    In response to FrankieCrabs


A couple of points:

-Paul was speaking about the Roman Empire, which believe it or not was far worse than America by any objective standard

-Why is the country as a whole a concern when the focus is on what Christians should not be doing? Is that the curious mix of Christianity and the State?

-Wouldn't it be better if Christians modeled the behavior we wish to see in others? Things such as bankruptcy and divorce, and homoesexual behavior from those in the pulpit, even outside of the Roman Church, is not exactly unheard of.

And we can trade Bible quotes all day if one would like to, the real question is more what should be done, by me, you, everyone who reads this thread?

Quoting the Scripture in and of itself is all fine, the real test is finding the proper Scriptural Principal to apply.
