We can't afford to leave God out of America

Psalms 9:17 - "The wicked shall be turned into hell and all nations that forget God." Downfall comes when we leave God out.
Genesis 12:3 - "God said, I will bless those that bless Abraham (Hebrews) and curse those that curse thee." Downfall comes when you forsake Israel.
Psalm 106:38 - "Shed innocent blood, even the blood of sons and daughters." Many Scriptures show downfall comes from shedding of innocent blood, the legal killing by abortion, more than 50 million now.
Genesis 2:24 - "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh." Downfall comes when a nation destroys God's definition of marriage and family.
Check world history books and you will see what caused the downfall of nations. God's Word is the final authority; do not forget this.
Deuteronomy 28:43-45 - "When a nation spends more money than it has, other nations will control its wealth." This downfall is a curse, caused by disobedience to God's commandments. God says return to Him.
