Our congregation in Pigeon Forge, TN is on a 21 day “Daniel” fast praying for the nation. We trust you are also praying for our nation to have a true turning to God so that we may experience his forgiveness and restoration. May we know the blessings that come from the fear of the Lord!
The early founders of the the nation took seriously the responsibility of electing competent leaders of character. We should do the same. Here is a word from 1932 from Noah Webster that I wish every sober American would appreciate.
“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of [our] government depends on the faithful discharge of this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded. If [our] government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the Laws.” -History of United States by Noah Webster.
