Definitely not a P.C. message, this video is from a message that John MacArthur gave two years ago during the National Day of Prayer service at Woodmen Valley Chapel in Colorado Springs, CO.

  1. I read the transcript of this some months ago. I thought it was really well said. The question that it raised in my mind was this: If we have been abandoned (seemingly since the sixties), what happened before that led to the abandonment? The two answers I came up with were these: 1. Godless evolution came to our children and we did nothing to stand against it. 2. Parenting became about making children happy instead of raising children willing to sacrifice for the cause of Christ.
    Reguardless of the reasons, I think Mr. Macathur is right in saying that the only way to turn this around is to preach the truth and not shrink from it.

  2. The slide's been happening even before then. It has been a long time in coming… Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, with the Scopes-Monkey Trial… to now. A long process of elevating man.

  3. Heard a very similar message at our Church in Corona CA several years ago from MacArthur.

    It goes deeper that whether God has really abandoned America. Does God really bless a nation, now that Christians are His people? Was it His general or specific grace to begin with?

    Most importantly though, regardless of how God deals with America, we know from His word about how he loves us as his people. Maybe the depravity in America will wake up the Church. What we need is a Great Awakening, or a reformation. Let us unite, let us pray for that!!!

  4. This actually woke me up in the middle of the night. I don't think that as Christians that god has abandoned us. However, the nation which has become more and more secular has abandoned God.

    We are promised that God never leaves or forgets us.

    It's a matter of trust, faith and listening to God without question. If we pray “God, use me”, he does. He puts people into situations and places that they'd never imagine they'd be. He provides the perfect solution and the perfect place for everyone to be a perfect example.
