(Proverbs 16:10 KJV) A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
Is America a Christian nation? In one sense we have been and still kind of are. We are Christian because we are not Muslim or Hindu. That does not mean a lot. Of greater importance are two other key elements. The one we are not looking at today is the character and belief of the people. In order to be a Christian nation America would need to have enough spiritual salt to deserve that label. If we look at the way the general culture is going and how the so-called church has been discarding basic Biblical truth, the label is getting questionable.
The other element is the leadership. That is what this verse addresses. Does America have leaders who acknowledge and live by the word of God? That is even more doubtful. I believe there are a fair number of mayors, city counsel members, state officers and federal officials who are genuine in their faith and practice. The problem is that they are few and far between. It is a blessing of God to have leaders who walk the path of righteousness. In a republic it is the job of the rank and file to elect those who can serve well.
So? We have no elections on the near horizon but we do have the process of politics and living going on daily. We need to stay awake, observe and when the next election comes, be ready to vote as if we wanted a Christian nation.
