Time to choose quality of lifefor one’s eternal destiny

People sing the song “God Bless America,” but how can God bless an America that is prevalent with all manner of sin and corruption? Some of our elected officials have no self-respect or dignity. The name-calling and use of very unpleasant words used when on television show the lack of respect for self or the office they hold.

The sad thing is, that once resentment and anger has taken over the mind, there is no room for common sense or moral behavior.

The course of human history and the lives of individuals are, in part, decided by the elected officials of our country. Their thinking should be focused on human freedom and responsibility, as well as the divine sovereignty of God.

Biblical knowledge is an essential principle in our relationships with God and each other. The Bible tells us that: In the beginning God created the heavens and earth, and he planned our whole universe. Our supreme God is all powerful. No human can change God’s plans of his earth, by climate change, a new green deal or government orders.

Our country is at a crucial point. People are dealing with extremely high prices on everything we need to survive. With all the turmoil in our lives, the time is now to choose the quality of life that will determine our eternal destiny. Once death takes place, that destiny is forever.

The Bible tells us what Jesus Christ says to all people in the following verses:

Matthew 11:28 — Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

John 3:16 — For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
