America’s escalating sin

To the Editor:

Third segment: Where is the Church? America will continue to falter as long as her citizens keep their hearts rebellious to the Bible, the Savior Jesus Christ, and a church continuing to teach nothing of real substances or preaching watered-down gibberish.

Families are learning nothing of the real God, salvation in Christ and the wickedness of America’s escalating sins.

Where godly obedience is wanting, there are no morals, nor can good government be found. If in families godly obedience is not maintained, it is vain to look for good government in city, state or country. Family is the primary government, to where all other governments and dominion on earth take their origin.

If the root of the tree be unsound, then neither the tree (parents) nor fruit (children) will be good. Corruption embeds dominion in the workplace, schools and our communities. The power of the Christian church lies in the young.

Neglect in teaching the true Word of God, children become like a garden that is neglected in the spring.

Those who knowingly neglect their children and let them grow up without the nurture and fear of the Lord are the destroyers of their children.
