A problem I see was recently called to my attention in a book about the missionary Livingston. He said that evangelism must precede civilization. I thought this was profound due to the time and place he was living and how it relates to our nation.

We have become a pagan country. I cannot believe the progressives that seem to believe in a socialistic solution to the problems we face. Our problem is evil. And the only true solution is to return to the God of our Fathers.

A more powerful government is just another attempt by man to play God. What is needed is for the Christian churches to return to a preaching of the pure gospel, that calls sin what it is and the only remedy is a return to God’s solution. We must accept that we have offended a Holy God and the further from His book we wander the worse the calamity will be for us.

Great letter Harold. Of course, the folks at EMU won't like it, but that's to be expected.
