Above His Pay Grade?

It appears that Barak Obama is moving full speed ahead to destroy the economy. Why? Perhaps Obama wants us to be like the poor nations of the world to soothe a liberal anti-American guilt complex, or perhaps as one report claims, he knows exactly what he’s doing and is purposely throwing our economy into chaos to put Americans in a position where they will be clamoring for a savior, paving the way for government takeover of a once-free people. Then again, perhaps this is an overestimation of his abilities. He may simply be in over his head, or as he stated, above his pay grade.

Whatever the reason, Americans will have to revisit the foundational principles that have made us the greatest nation on the face of the earth if we are to recover -the principles of liberty under God. These Biblical principles have provided restraints on American capitalism, and they will need to be reaffirmed and publicly acknowledged. The word “virtue” must once again become part of the American lexicon.

Even as the Obama crowd would waste no crisis in advancing their agenda, so should the people of God see this as an opportunity to rise up, exercise leadership and see America once again enjoy God’s favor as we publicly acknowledge that we are still “One Nation Under God.” The Church must lead the way.
