I have always thought there was a strange convergence of ideas in America. We are a nation whose founding fathers established us under God’s Laws and principles, yet we cherish and support religious freedom for all. And while that strange combination worked pretty well for 200 years, we are not reaping the effects of “religious freedom” in our nation. 58,000,000 million children murdered; homosexual marriage now the law of the land; and the growing reality of the brutality of radical Islam.
Yet our leaders continue to end every important speech with “God bless America!” I guess the question is this: “Why would He bless us?” Scott Alan Buss joins us this morning at 9am central for an interesting discussion.
Scott writes, “Want to see America in Scripture? Try Psalm 2”
Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”
4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then He will speak to them in His anger
And terrify them in His fury, saying,
6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”
7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance,
And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.
9 ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron,
You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”
10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment;
Take warning, O judges of the earth.
11 Worship the Lord with reverence
And rejoice with trembling.
12 Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!
