We have lost so much in America, but certainly we have lost honor, manners, kindness, compassion, and respect in our culture.
Humanity should respect humanity, but we have witnessed less and less of it in our Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
Concerning those persons who help us, they protect us, they save us, and most are willing to put their lives on the line for us - we continue to sadly witness many of these people not respected in our culture.
At the very same time, though, the disrespectful people still want to be protected from evil against themselves, they still want their own homes to be saved from fire, their own lives saved by medical staff, their own homes protected from invasion...
We are losing the America in which we all grew up.
We who have been saved by Jesus know and look forward to His return as we see the signs of the times. As our country and our lives fall into disarray from the fall of decent culture, we can find great comfort and strength knowing the Lord wins.
"For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
"And you were dead in your trespasses and sins...
...But God, being rich in mercy,
because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in our transgressions,
made us alive together with Christ
(by grace you have been saved),
and raised us up with Him, and seated us
with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
so that in the ages to come
He might show the surpassing riches of His grace
in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God;
not as a result of works,
so that no one may boast..."
