  (ARCHIVES)Back to Current
True Patriotism (07/03/2011)
From: Chap. Col. T.M. Schoewe, USAF (ret.)

Some historian has figured the average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been around 200 years. Nations have always progressed through this sequence:

From Bondage to Spiritual Faith

From Spiritual Faith to Great Courage

From Courage to Liberty

From Liberty to Abundance

From Abundance to Selfishness

From Selfishness to Complacency

From Complacency to Apathy

From Apathy to Dependency

From Dependency to Bondage

The United States will be officially 235 years old on the 4th of July. The Psalms which you find in the middle of your Bible again and again sound the refrain that God notes the nations which will not serve Him and they shall perish. Again and again the Psalms promise “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

This blessing of course can only come to a nation to the extent that its individual citizens possess and worship the God who is the Lord. The individuals, who fear, love and trust in the Lord God above all things, are the real American Patriots and call down His continued Blessings on their Country.

Are you helping in the rise or fall of your nation? Are you helping or hurting yourself, your family, your country, the world? ARE YOU REALLY PATRIOTIC?
