What America Is Not?

  • She is not a communists nation- Usurping power and control over men’s bodies and minds.
  • She is not a socialists nation seeking to increase the power of government and their own power and to make people ever more dependent on government.
  • She is not an indolent nation using any crisis to get more handouts.
  • She is not a lawless nation where injustice is tolerated.
  • She is not a gullible nation where they think a crisis is simply about caring.  When in reality, it's about correcting a wrong with an understanding of knowing between right and wrong in meaning and methods.
  • She is not a hopeless nation where life of the unborn and the vulnerable are extinguishable.
  • America is not a nation of racism.  Sure, there will always be racist and race-baiting.  But most Americans of all colors do not presume the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. 
  • Most importantly, America is a nation of an immensely powerful influence of the redeemed of the Lord where there is vigilance to stay focused on God’s will and the business the LORD has given us, yielded to the solemn command of the eternal Son of God under the influence of the indwelling Holy Spirit will be in force until “the end of the world,” and that is: acknowledging that "Jesus Christ came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:18-20).

From its conception, the United States has been grounded in ideals that originate within the Word of God. Our very Declaration of Independence eloquently set “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness” as aspirations that a country would be built around by the grace of God.

America is a perpetual miracle by the goodness of the LORD. With wise and compassionate leadership, America has expressed without shame the set of ideas that make for a great nation.  Some of them ever so explicitly, as in the Constitution. That document talks about freedom of speech, freedom of religion and other rights, and gives them legal protections. But it also set them as core values that animate our society.

We should not mistake God's involvement and influence over America.  As the constitution provides protections that reflects the very image of God – like due process and equal protection – implicitly introduced other ideals such as a strong belief in justice and a belief in fairness. These have permeated far beyond the realm of government. So our human sensibilities are offended by unfairness in every context of contemporary life – from the schoolyard to college admissions to the athletic fields and religious circles.
