I find myself disagreeing with both camps. My Bible says that "the devil goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour". But, it also says that if we resist the devil, he will flee from us. Further,it says that if we think and do the things that are true, honest, just, lovely, pure, and of good report, then the God of peace shall be with us. So the solution to our woes is obvious. This nation needs a behavior change. That's what repentance really is.
