Why America is in the Shape It's In

You probably won't like my answer to the question, "WHY IS AMERICA IN THE SHAPE IT'S IN?". There are a lot of answers to this question, but most of them are only partially correct. I want to examine a few of them and then point the finger of truth toward the real culprit.
Politicians. We don't hold them accountable anymore. They're out of touch and out of control.
Illegal Immigrants They're criminals, many are milking the system, they're taking jobs away from Americans, and they're in our face proudly claiming rights that haven't been given to them.
Criminals - Law Enforcement isn't respected anymore. Anarchy rules. Do what you want, just don't get caught.
Homosexual Activists - They don't just WANT to be accepted - they DEMAND to be accepted and will do everything in their power to MAKE the world treat them with the respect they think they deserve.
Hollywood - Keeps turning out trash that appeals to the lowest common denominator. Hollywood has an agenda and is using film to shape public opinion and behavior.
Pornographers - Sex is the number one national passtime and has been lowered to nothing more than a physically self-gratifying quest for the ultimate sexual high.
Public Education System- We've allowed public schools to shape our children's lives and indoctrinate them with anti-God, anti-Christian, pro-evolution, pro-homosexual value systems and beliefs.

All of these things are contributors to why America is in the shape it's in, but the number one reason is this:
Christians That's right. Christians are why the country is in the shape it is in. If you are a Christian, then you are the main reason. Why are we Christians at fault for what ails America? Because we have allowed God to be taken out of the public domain and locked inside of the church. We have allowed the taking of his name in vain so often by saying nothing - that now hearing it doesn't even shock us anymore. We have allowed abortion and euthanasia to become commonplace with hardly a whimper. We've separated ourselves from the world and given up. We've stopped witnessing. We've become afraid to speak out boldly about our faith. And we wonder why God stands by and allows this country to continue to self-destruct!
We have sinned against our Creator by our apathy and timidity. How can we reverse the trend? Have we been silent too long? Without God's help, we are defeated. This country could still be turned around, back toward the Christian values that it was founded on, but it will take real revival by real Christians who are on their knees begging forgiveness and seeking His power. We need to heed His words: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Christian, are you going to continue to be part of the problem?

Ms Green you are right on about it being the Christians fault for the state America is in today. We want to blame the lost reprobates for all this but God will hold us accountable for it. Many Christians would disagree because they say it is set in the Bible that the world will grow worse and worse any way! Man what a cop out that is! Yes the Bible does state that, but it does not state that God has taken any power away from Christians through prayer to see people saved from thier reprobate state before the end. What we must understand is that predestination is a God thing and we as Christions it is "whosoever will". To sit back and say God doesn't care what we do or can do while his plan unfolds, is an abomination! By the way , pray for me as Im not doing enough and have in the past fell for Satan's idea of "you can't change anything, so why try.
