Mr. Barber...Thanks for the 2 Chr 7.14 reference. How true. One observation, though...that cry from God is directed at His people. For us, that mean's professing Christians. God's message today, I think, is that the Church needs to "...humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways..." The Godless can't be expected to be otherwise than lost, confused, and living in darkness. Those who call upon the Name of the Lord are the ones who need to remember Who bought them and turn from wickedness, if we want God's blessing once more. OUR repentance is what is needed...when that happens, the rest will fall into place (i.e., revival and an outpouring of God's Grace and Holy Spirit). [More]

Our land is in such dismal condition today because Christians have walked in the ways of Godlessness and we're reaping the reward. We're expected to be salt, and have chosen to lose our "saltiness." The Bible says salt without savor is fit only to thrown out and trodden underfoot.

Only OUR repentance can turn things around...prayer, fasting, and weeping over our cowardice and unfaithfulness. That's what God wants.

Clearly, what our nation needs is more “separation of church and state.” If those obnoxious, right-wing Bible thumpers would simply quit bellowing about the need for revival – a return to the deeply held Judeo-Christian principles embraced by our Founding Fathers – America would be a much better place.

Secular-humanism – that’s the ticket! We need more reliance on man and less on God.
