In 1821, Daniel Webster defined the rules of longevity with "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."

There is no reverence to God in todays society as many do not believe the authority of God and therefore sadly God has no honor. When you say God has no authority then it is substituted with mans authority, humanism. The result is mans opinions and we see the pro-abortion, pro-gay, taking the 10 commandments out of public places, sexual immorality, violence, disobedience and all in all the decline of a nation.
The nation abandoned God. We have abandoned the absolute truth of the Bible. When you abandon God and the truth of the Bible, then man makes the rules. Every man decides what is right and what is wrong in his own perspective. This is called moral relativism.

Nearly three out of four Americans believe the Bible teaches that "God helps those who help themselves. There is no scripture like that. Many say they are Christians but deny the existence of the Holy Spirit, Satan and the physical resurrection of Jesus.
Repent of your sins, turn away from your sins and turn to the true living God of the Bible. Realize when you sin you have offended God directly. God requires satisfaction. How can you satisfy God? Not by the traditions of religion taught by men not by God.
Jesus said, These people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Mark 7:6-7)
Jesus satisfied God by being obedient to the cross, he fulfilled all the commands where we have violated, he was obedient where we were disobedient and took the punishment of sin. Gods wrath will fall upon all those who are unsaved and living in sin. Salvation is found only in Jesus and he is the only way to heaven. Salvation is only by the grace of God for undeserved sinners and not of works which anyone can boast.
