The 3-minute video shown below shows members of the United States Congress standing together yesterday for a moment of silence as a memorial for the victims of 9/11. Their ceremony was a great illustration of the current spiritual condition of America, honoring an unknown god with silence because we’re too ashamed of the true God to speak even a single word honoring Him.
Some bowed their heads and closed their eyes while others just stood there. They concluded the ceremony by singing a chorus from “God Bless America,” which is politically correct because we all like the idea of being blessed by Him, but unfortunately, we don’t qualify for His blessings because we detest the idea of doing what He requires, which reveals the hypocrisy of the ceremony. Yes God, come and bless us while we disregard Your words when You said, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” (Mark 8:38 NKJV)
Unfortunately for America, it doesn’t work that way. Our only hope is doing what God requires, walking uprightly before Him in obedience to His commandments, just as He said, “You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” (John 15:14 NKJV)
