What Made America Great!


What is it that made America great? What made it the one country people all over the world wanted to go to in order to start a new life? If you listen to the progressives of today, they will say it was our secular dictated form of government. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Let us explore the history of the United States and from where its greatness comes.

It is a noted fact that is not taught in most schools today, that people from Europe immigrated here to practice their religion free from the restrictions of the Old World. After all, there was the Inquisition and other forms of religious correction going on in Europe which caused the death of thousands and thousands of people. People like the Pilgrims and Puritans wanted somewhere else to go that would free them from the religious persecution they were leaving behind. America, the New World, was very inviting.

From these roots a new nation began to form. You can see it in the Declaration of Independence where it makes references to God (and definitely not a god) and says:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

You can see it on the building housing the Supreme Court where the Ten Commandments are there for everyone to see. You can see it in Congress everyday where each session is led off by a prayer, and you can see it in the First Amendment of the Constitution that guarantees religious freedom, although progressives have twisted it to be interpreted today as freedom from religion. Anyone who studies our history before and just after this nation was born cannot escape the religious roots from which our society came. So what is it that made us great?

Let us read Deuteronomy 28: 1-13 to see if we can answer the question from where our greatness came. “And it shall come to pass if you should hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command you this day, that the Lord your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth: and all these blessings shall come on you and overtake you, if you shall hearken to the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your kine, and the flocks of your sheep. Blessed shall be your basket and your store. Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

“The Lord shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you set your hand to, and he shall bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

“The Lord shall establish you a holy people to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and walk in his ways. And all the people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of you. And the Lord shall make you plenteous in goods, in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. The Lord shall open to you his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain to your land in his season, and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend to many nations, and you shall not borrow. And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath; if that you hearken to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day, to observe and to do them.”

God made us great, because we began this nation as a people searching for God and putting our trust in him. We received his blessings because he was the true head of our society. Our Founding Fathers knew this and put the frameworks of our religious freedom into our Constitution and every layer of our society. Our freedoms sprang from God. Look at other societies and what freedoms they had without God. Did it exist in that ideal society of equality for all in the Soviet Union? Does it exist in those other Marxist utopias of North Korea and China? Are people fleeing to or from Cuba? Are the people happy in Venezuela and Iran? Wherever God is left out of a society, oppression reigns and any freedoms are lost. That is what we are seeing in the United States, today.

We have passed the tipping point. We are no longer under God’s blessing. We no longer are the lender: we are the borrower. We will soon not be the head. We have abandoned God and our greatness is vanishing right before our eyes. Oppression from our government grows every day and will continue to grow as long as sins like homosexuality make more inroads into our society every day. We are going in the opposite direction from which God commands us to go.

If we want to save this nation, we have to repent. There is no other way. Political changes will not work. God told the Jews after the fall of Jerusalem to the Chaldeans to not go back into Egypt. They did not listen. They thought their way of changing things was better than what God was telling them, but they were wrong. What they were trying to run from followed them into Egypt. We are trying to do things our way by hoping political change will do it, but it is a false hope. God says, “Repent! There is no other way but my way.”

    1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; BUT WHY? James 5:6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.


    • Thank you for you comment. Your scriptures are something we need to follow. However, prayer can change things in ways we do not want or expect. Read my next post to see what I mean.
