What has Made America Great in the Past

Alexis de Tocqueville on why America is great.

“I sought for the key to the greatness and genius of America in her fertile fields and boundless forests; in her rich mines and vast world commerce; in her public school system and institutions of higher learning.  I sought for it in her democratic Congress and in her matchless Constitution.  Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.  America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Our religious liberties are being eroded.  Our conscience informed by Scripture is being told to accept as right things that are wrong.  What is our future?  What will become of America?  Maybe in the grand scheme of history, we are not that important.

Nevertheless, while we have breath, let’s pray that the gospel shines brighter.  Let’s pray that holiness fills God’s people.  Let’s pray!

Happy Independence Day!
