To the Editor:
Do you believe this country is headed in the wrong direction? The moral standards of our government are “evolving,” taking us down a pathway toward a secular world culture that is bankrupt.
Bonnie Erbe, a syndicated writer, featured weekly in the KDH, points out that less religious influence in our government (and by extension, in our lives) “will be a blessing for all of us.” Will we never learn that our society, our government, culture, moral and religious beliefs are all undeniably intertwined?
Even in our local community in the last six months, writers have asserted that somehow the Old Testament has no bearing on our modern society. They espouse their philosophy illustrating their biblical ignorance and thus reinforcing this move toward the darkness sweeping across our nation.
Unfortunately, when we try to compartmentalize our moral and religious views, as some in our society advocate, we begin to embrace darkness rather than the light. Just look at the floor vote of one of our political parties at their national convention in September over reinserting God into its political platform. Our Founding Fathers would stand aghast at this loss of our moral compass.
It is time to make a decision; will you allow the darkness to continue its advance? 2 Chronicles 7:14 needs to be a guiding light for both this nation and each of us.
