Christian Bible as its primary source of guidance and
As such, the USA became the richest, most powerful
(most blessed) country in the entire world. Sadly, all
of this is a part of a distant past. The United States
of America has become a "post-Christian"
have become morally bankrupt to an extent that has
provoked resentment and outrage throughout much of the
rest of the world. We have relegated absolute truth
to the confines of the "unenlightened" days
of our ancient ancestors. This new age of
"enlightenment" has all but erased the
concept of "sin" and as a result, the United

Christianity entirely - there absolutely remains a
magnificent remnant of biblical Christians all around
the country, including some marvelous churches, and
some wonderful pastors and church leaders. What I do
mean by "post-Christian" however, is this:
Generally, the biblical beliefs of our Founding
Fathers have been widely and practically, if not
Generally, biblical Christianity has been, at best,
badly compromised, and at worst, completely
obliterated in the "American Church."
