The United States NEEDS to Repent or Die.
 
Is the above statement true or false?

True. Without repentance sin is not forgiven. No repentance, no restoration.

And repentance is more than just feeling bad and weeping about how bad it is. It includes actually correcting the bad behaviour.

A thief who cries at the altar, but still shoplifts, has not repented.

What do you mean by “die”?
Just the U.S.?
Die of what cause?

There’s still a lot of God fearing Christians in this country.

What’s a lot?
Were there no God fearing Christians in Germany in 1939?
Right now I’m just focused on the US. You can start a thread on another country and I’ll comment :thumbsup

What is the United States dying of? Plain stupidity, like using a circular saw without a guard. You know you shouldn’t do it, but you do it anyway. Sooner or later the inevitable happens. You receive a life changing injury. Was there any God fearing Christians in 14th century Europe? When the Babylonians attacked Jerusalem were there anyone there who feared God? Do you believe the United States is eternal and can never fall? 476 A.D. Europe, were there any God fearing Christians leading up to that date?

More than we might know, but less than we might think.

Yes. Will it happen, NO.

We have a hard enough time getting "our" people to repent.

We are consumed with entertainment.

God help us.

That can be said of any nation on the planet. Why is the USA singled out for this kind of statement?

Because apparently with some in the church realm, America is the only nation founded on biblical principles. So, seeing the way America has become it really only has 2 options, repent or die.

Even though concerning Sodom and Gomorrah, the Lord would’ve spared the city for 10 souls. Maybe some of us need a relationship like Abraham had.

Or....

It’s Gods intention to judge this nation, and will raise another nation. Either way, the church will be shadowed by the wings of the almighty.

Because this is where I live.

This is where I was born.

So, while I'm praying for Africa, I might want the land of my children to be on the go as well.

Make sense?
