Make America Great Again – One Christian at a Time

Why is America’s greatness the task of Christians and why one at a time? It is their task because God gave it to them:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:  and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  (Matt. 28:18-20)

The greatness of America that was lost and is now in need of renewal was due entirely to its faith in God and its obedience to God. It’s not that Christians are anything special in themselves but that they, however imperfectly, teach obedience to God’s commandments. The greatness of America was a product of this obedience. When they obeyed God and did what was right from their hearts, there was no need for the strict government regulations and enforcement agencies we see growing year by year today. The people were free and the nation was great because they believed and obeyed God.

The problem with America today is that its Christians are on vacation. They have been on vacation for over a century and, instead of championing their faith, have surrendered the land to the opposition. The battle we’re involved in is not political; it is religious. It is not the conservatives versus the liberals; it is God’s law versus man’s law. Obedience to God’s law, though, the only law that can possibly bring freedom to the land, requires faith in God. Unbelievers do not obey the law of a God they don’t believe in. So, to the extent the Christian faith has declined, to that extent freedom and America’s greatness with it have become things of the past.

Hopefully, as this decline progresses, and progress it will, America’s Christians will begin to realize how much this decline is on their hands. Hopefully they will respond in faith, do the work God has given them, and lead the nation back to its former greatness. This is only possible one Christian at a time because Christianity is not, and cannot succeed, as a mass movement. The nation can only come to the faith, one person at a time and it is the task of each believer to convince, through word and example, the people around them, why it is God’s truth.
