This is exactly how I reacted. As a country, we deserve judgment. I've been so struck by the first several chapters of Isaiah and how the US seems to be in the very same predicament. Can't say we haven't been warned. And though it seems we have been "exiled" into the slavery of godlessness, God does comfort the righteous and promise to protect them. If we know the good to do and do not do it, we sin. Now is the time to be salt and light and seek to do the right things. I want to follow the Lord and see how He will eventually restore the nation. But we have to turn from this blatant path to destruction.
