Gabriel Daigle: Forgetting God

To the editor:

Truly, the American people have been blessed "with blessings from Heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath" (Genesis 49:25).

However, in spite of being showered with all these blessings, we have turned away from God. We have certainly not honored the creator, who gave us all these blessings.

As President Abraham Lincoln even stated in his day: We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown.

But we have forgotten God.

We have forgotten the gracious hand that preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us. And we have vainly imagined in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God who made us.

So, what does the future hold for us Americans? Do we honestly believe that He will continue to bless us? I don't think so.

These are my thoughts.

I am not sure where that comes from;it seems that you can't go anywhere nowadays without hearing about god.Watch a sporting event,the victor always praises his/her god. A child is killed,and the parents claim that god took it home.I go on facebook,and all I read is one old friend or another praising their god for rain,or snow or a dry spell or a good shot at an elk. There is more god talk than i've ever heard. I understand that as folks grow older they tend to feel their mortality creeping up on them,and in many cases 'learn to pray', just in case... more power to them I say.But on the other hand,calling yourself a christian and being christian are often miles apart.

Everyone I know goes to one church or another. Do I know any christians? (Christ Like)....very rare to meet one. Road and gate is narrow and "few" will find it. Why do you think it references the gnashing of teeth...because everyone thinks they are saved.

It's going to be a horrible awakening.

Hi Eddy, I think both you and Ms. Daigle are correct, and not even contradictory that we have both forgotten God and also hear more people talk about God. The more rapidly we worship status, fame and fortune, the faster we fall towards total corruption and immorality and, therefore, the more we need a savior. Makes sense right?
