Politics Cannot Save Us!!!

Whether you are in rapturous joy or the doldrums of despair today after the signing of the government takeover of healthcare, you've got to's pretty big news.

There are those who are very excited that the promise of free healthcare will now provide everything they need, and I have to admit I have been in opposition to this particular plan for healthcare reform. But after some reflection and a little overexposure to the issue, I've changed my tune a bit.

This is exactly what one would expect from our representatives with where our country is right now.

My blog and facebook pages are filled with references to how far our country has strayed from the principles of the Constitution. Well, no longer.

As John Adams said:

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

We are no longer a moral and religious people as a country. Therefore, the Constitution is no longer adequate for us.

To be able to use history's greatest political document for governing our country once again, there must be a spiritual awakening to the truth of the Biblical gospel. We must individually confess our sins and cry out to God for His Mercy (I Chronicles 7:14).

Only Jesus can save us. He's revealed his will and the instructions for life in his trustworthy and enduring Word. When was the last time you spent some serious time studying God's Word and praying for those around you? Well, brother, that's too long!
