Memorial Day

This Memorial Day, we honor all those who have served in the military to preserve our way of life and the freedom that we all enjoy. We are blessed to live in a country where we are truly free and I want to take this moment to personally thank each and every person who has served and is serving in our military. When I think about how young our country really is and look at all it has accomplished, it makes me wonder just how long we will remain as free and successful as we are today. History tells us that countries don’t last forever. I wonder what’s next for the United States. We have so many conflicts around the world and even among ourselves. I also wonder what impact the absence of God in our Government and schools is having. Does the moral decline of our nation and the decline of Christian principles within our families mean that the men and women who have died for our country have died in vain? General MacArthur put it this way:
“We have had our last chance. If we do not devise some greater and more equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door. The problem basically is theological and involves a spiritual recrudescence and improvement of human character that will synchronize with our almost matchless advance in science, art, literature, and all material and cultural developments of the past 2,000 years. It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh.” General MacArthur said that 75 years ago and it still holds great meaning today.
