We are Broken

Have you ever heard that saying: “if it is not broke, don’t fix it” Well America is broken. What do you mean, America is great, we have an awesome economy, unemployment at historic lows.

No it’s not!  Just look at the evidence. 1) The political realm. We have a divided Gov’t. ll the Democrats and the Republicans have always been at odds with each other. Yes, but the anger that is in Washington now is of great concern. Treason and impeachment instead of the immigration troubles. Some in Washington are stating that we are in the midst of a political civil war. What about the social temperature of our country? Have you noticed that since the year 2,000 the suicide rate has jumped by 30%? In 2017 47,173 Americans died by suicide. Do we hear a word about this in Washington? Here are 4 statistics from the Addiction center website: “Almost 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment. Drug overdose deaths have more than tripled since 1990. From 1999 to 2017, more than 700,000 Americans died from overdosing on a drug. Alcohol and drug addiction cost the U.S. economy over $600 billion every year.”

Why does America look like this? After all are we not the land of the free and the home of the brave? You know what is quite telling? Look at the statistics on the dying church attendance and then take the correlation of crime in our country. This is not coincidence they are related factors. The more society degenerates the more lawlessness is evident. The lack of respect for police. The Church seen as irrelevant. The lack of moral aptitude tells us that instead of getting better we are traveling on a new road, and I do not mind telling you I do not like the destination!

If America wants to be great again, America needs to recognize the need for moral law and the recognition of a Savior to help us get out of the problems we are in. There is no Peace without the Prince of Peace some once stated. America does not need new and improved ways to do things wrong. We just need honest and conscientious people to stand up and do what is right!
