When a nation falls
When a nation fears
Will you hear our cries and our calls
Will you wipe away our tears.

When a nation is hideing
All of it's sin
Your all abiding
You see us from with in.

Im not finished writing this but would love to get some feed back and maybe ideas or something.

Hello LiLJesusFreak,

I think that I might know where you are going with this. I just want to make a couple of comments. I honestly believe that most Christians in this part of the world are not interested in hiding the sin being committed.  It's a matter of shame and prayer, but it's also a matter of speaking out for many Christians.

We know that GOD hates sin, but HE sent HIS Son to die on the Cross for our sins. JESUS loved all of us enough to die in our place, so that obviously means that HE loved us when we were wallowing in darkness. GOD does not want any of us to perish in our sins without JESUS, but many will reject JESUS as Lord and Saviour and do just that.

There are many things in this part of the world that should be national shames, and they are for Christians. Christians are not proud to live in a part of the world where it appears that large numbers of people are turning their backs on GOD. Let's just talk about two isolated examples of many:  abortion and pornography. These make most Christians sick, and many have been fighting against the devil to remove these and many other evils from our society. Christians do live here, but that does not hint that we approve of all the things being done here.

I wanted to mention these things to you because I know they represent an abomination to GOD. We can't completely divorce ourselves from this evil garbage and filth, mainly because there might have been more legal things that we should have done and could have done to stop them. SO, I'm not hinting that Christians are completely innocent. On the other side of the coin, I will tell you that many Christians did stand up for the things of the LORD and they still are, but many Christians remained silent and did nothing. Most of us could make a pretty long list of things that are evil, and those evil things result in mass destruction and misery for millions. I would also say that many Christians were partakers of some of that evil, and that made their testimonies for Christ either worthless or one of hypocrisy. PLEASE - don't think that I'm hinting at any self-righteousness. I've had many things to pray for forgiveness, and I give thanks that the Blood of JESUS on the Cross is more than sufficient for my forgiveness.

So, please take my thoughts as simply ideas. Christians certainly won't defeat the devil during this short life, but JESUS will at HIS appointed time.

Love In Christ,
Tom

I'm not offended or anything, its just that when I started writing this (this is actually going to be a song) at the time I had this feeling as in why we get hit by so many disasters. I just recently got back from New Orleans and my experiance has sprouted a whole bunch of thoughts and comparasins w/ that city to Seattle where I live now. All that I see going on in our nation is making more and more ask the question why are we officially titled a Christian country but yet are so corrupt in so many ways, why do we pretty much have this thinking (now im not lumping christians in this one) that we should dwell in Heaven w/ out accepting to be saved first through Jesus Christ. Its just all of these questions concerning EVERY evil in this country, abortion, gay rights, and all of that stuff. So w/ this one I actually want to title it "America Cries Out" or something like that because in all honesty that is what I'm seeing right now is God's people really crying out to God concerning the evil surrounding us. My experiance in New Orleans has not just change my life but really did change the way I see things in our nation through spiritual eyes. I know that this song is going to be a little too "out there" for most people but its more of what I see and what God is showing me to get down on my knees and really pray for when it comes to this nation. So I have no negative thoughts of what you said because what you said is very much true and its really sad at the same time.

One Nation Under God

We are known as a Christian nation because this nation was founded on Christian principles. Unfortunately after enjoying our Christian liberty for so many years many Christians have gotten to expect that it will always be like that, free. Too many have forgotten what it is really like to be persecuted for our faith. Christianity has been taken out of our schools and their is a minority that is trying to take it out of our public eyes altogether. In order for this nation to stay a Christian nation Christians must realise those freedoms do not come easy and that we all must stand up against the evil that wants to overcome us.
