I came across a statement by Alexis de Tocqueville, a Frenchmen, on what he discovered about the reason that America is great after a three year visit to the states.
In his words:” I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there; in her fertile fields aand boundless prairies, and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
Tocqueville visited the states from 1831 to 1834 and his statement is coming true today. How does this affective Terrorism, well a good nation is a strong nation who protects its people where ever they are and if they cease to be great and lose the respect of the world then terrorist feel we are a weak target without the will to stop them. God help this nation.
I recommend for your consideration to read ‘Hope for our Nation” a short book which gives in 44 pages the talking points for how our nation was founded and the background of the men who founded America. You can get a copy from www.ibethel.org or www.praydc.com
We each have a part to do in fighting terrorism and for some of us it is just to be informed so we can put pressure on our elected officials, and help get the right ones elected.
Until next time Be Safe. Phil
