Ephesians 4:14 “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”
Without a firm foundation, one will naturally be tossed to and fro. As Americans have abandoned the principles of sound doctrine from God’s Word, the nation has lost its steadiness and its direction. Without an anchor to truth through grounded Christians, America has drifted aimlessly. The result has been a nation that now lacks fundamental coherence in its core characteristics.
A crumbling foundation has created a nation with policy choices that act at cross-purposes with one another. We rightfully try to solve an epidemic of sexual assault, while the government promotes limitless lifestyles. We rightfully try to eliminate school shootings to prevent the loss of innocent life, while the government promotes individual ‘choice’ to slaughter society’s most vulnerable. We rightfully uplift basic human freedoms around the world, while the government tramples on First Amendment freedoms at home. We rightfully promote sound stewardship of personal resources, while the government recklessly squanders public resources. With such natural contradictions, it is no surprise that progress on any front is rare, fleeting, and lacking direction.
Without a Biblical basis to inform our direction, we have lost our way. PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICA WOULD RETURN TO A BIBLE-BASED FOUNDATION. Otherwise, we will continue to be tossed to and fro.
