A new America is About to Debut; A Nation Devoid of any Moral, Spiritual or Ethical Restraints
In this day and age America has forgotten its Spiritual Foundation. Now more than ever this Nation needs to take a deep Moral and Spiritual look from the Individual Level to the highest Leaders of our Government
Langston says, "We are a nation that has lost its moral compass". Last Oct. 1, after a gunman with no serious criminal history unloaded more than 1,100 rounds of bullets into a crowd of thousands during the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, the public was stunned.
The shooting, in an era when violence has become a risk factor anywhere crowds gather, followed a summer of exceptional tragedy from hurricanes and wildfires.
He continues with this gruesome story: On Oct. 31, a 29-year-old Muslim extremist, Sayfullo Saipov, rammed a rented pickup truck into a crowded bicycling and jogging path along Hudson River Park in New York City, killing eight people and injuring 12.
Afterward, he reportedly ran from the truck yelling "Allahu akbar"!
Our politicians have lost touch with reality writes Langston. While politicians decry gun violence, the culture seems blind to the demise of morality that feeds it. Abortion has long been an American tragedy, with our nation approaching 60 million since the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision legalized it nationwide in 1973.
Closely related, the global "right to die" movement is making euthanasia palatable for the masses, six U.S. states and the District of Columbia now allow so-called assisted suicide.
Arguably, Langston says, the stain of human sin covers every sphere of our world, and its shadow seems wider each day.
Our once mighty nation now staggers and stumbles, almost in a drunken stupor.
Crowds watch in awe and shock as America indiscriminately extends her hands to the world begging, "Brother can you spare a dime."
As a nation, and a people, writes Langston, we have neglected-and even rejected-the Word of God and His commands. Yet the Scriptures are mighty, able to penetrate even the most hardened and darkened hearts with convicting, life-giving power.
They are God-breathed, and any new season of repentance and revival in America can only come through a renewed focus on the great truths of God's Word.
The intent of this book is to reassure even the most hard-hearted that just as the Lord used an 18-year-old king to begin revival in a corrupt nation more than 1,500 years ago, He can use us as we earnestly seek Him, stand for His truths, and pray for America.
This is the only cure for a sin-sickened country that is about to slip into a moral abyss, and it is why we must proclaim the Good News.
Langston concludes with these words, "You may grow angry at what you read, however, if you desire truth, a truth that can and will set you free, don't slam the book down; keep reading and persevere!
Your victory lap could be as close as the next page"!
