In the words of Harry Truman, 33rd president of the United States: "The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and Saint Matthew, from Isaiah and Saint Paul. If we don't have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government, which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state."
The late President Harry Truman is right. Our need in America is to return to God's government, and the Bible spells out God's rule over His creation. America's future depends on her accepting and demonstrating God's government. It is Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. America's future is in God's almighty hands. Read Luke 21:12-36.
