U.S. was founded on Christian principles

Whatever happened to the United States of America, that nation that was founded squarely on biblical truth? While the U.S. is not a “Christian nation” per se (our constitution provides for freedom of religion), it was undeniably founded on biblical principles. And because of this, we enjoyed God’s abundant blessings — freedom, protection, opportunity, decency, plenty and justice.

America also led the world in basic goodness, decency, morality and benevolence. While we are far from perfect, we were, on the whole, a good nation. However, with the passing of time things began to change. We forgot that God was the source of our incredible blessings and embarked on a dangerous journey of self reliance that had no room for God.

Prayer in schools vanished, evolution became the science of choice, living together replaced marriage, casual sex became the norm, rampant divorce led to the demise of the family — which in turn left millions of kids confused and angry — the filth of pornography was protected as free speech, the mother’s womb became a death chamber for over 50 million babies, God’s moral absolutes were considered archaic for our modern society and were replaced by relativism, God’s name and His Ten Commandments were considered threatening to many and have been ousted from public places, and now homosexuality and gay marriage is applauded and championed in every aspect of our society.

Additionally, our elected officials from the White House to the governor’s office betray their oath of office by refusing to uphold the laws of the land and the vote of the people.

If the Founding Fathers could see the condition of the United States today, they would think they were looking at a foreign country, not the one they so bravely established over 200 years ago.

It has been reported that Josef Stalin once said: “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

Unfortunately, he was right. America, our only hope is to come back to God.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
