I grew up with the idea of having fidelity to both God and country, but at this stage in my life and becoming aware of the decline of Christianity and with that the increase in reductionist tendencies in the United States, I am beginning to think that the phrase; "God and Country" will at some time in the future become inoperative. It will become a matter of "God or Country." Human nature abhors a vacuum just like nature abhors a vacuum and with the decline of our allegiance to God as an object of devotion, it would be replaced by something else. That is what happened in Nazi Germany; the German people were impoverished by their circumstances and instead of reaching up to god as a higher power, they became obsessed with "blood and soil." It would not happen in the same way here, but it could happen with some similar of form of demonic structuring.
I continue to pray for this country, but I am concerned that things are beginning to get out of control.
God bless all of you.
