America’s Blessings

Many American Christians believe the United States has been blessed because we have been a “Christian nation.”
 
Many also believe that the United States has become less Christian, and that we have begun to lose God’s blessings as a result.
 
How do most American Christians respond? By fighting to keep the blessings, rather than fighting to make America more Christian again.
 
We spend far too much time and effort fighting politically to keep the blessings. We spend far too little time and effort fighting spiritually to turn Americans’ hearts and minds back to Jesus.
 
This is idolatry.
 
And, I believe the idolatry of believers, not unbelievers, is why God is withdrawing His blessings.

My Faith

My faith isn’t about being a good person; it’s about being loved and forgiven despite not being a good person.

My faith isn’t about telling others how bad they are. It’s about telling them about the One who loves them and offers them a relationship and forgiveness.

My faith isn’t about making myself a better person; it’s about the Holy Spirit making me into the person I could never make of myself .

My faith isn’t about following a list of dos and don’ts. It’s about following the One who loves me unconditionally, and gives me the desire to be like Him.
