Over the years people,
From their countries flee,
To be in America –
Of religion and speech today
Are being quickly –
Did God leave America
Or America God?
No matter which way it went,
We need to repent.
Wake up American Christians!
To help save our freedoms.
There’s no place left to go
For the freedom we know.

Are we becoming more like some other countries and them like us? As we lose our freedoms, are others gaining more and more? We can see the pattern, throughout history, when a country leaves God.
Our prayer must be that freedom increases in our country and in all others as we do a complete turn around in our own lives.
True individual freedom comes only when we trust Jesus Christ for salvation from being a slave to wrongdoing (sin) against God. “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”. [Holy Bible – John 8: 36 – NIV]
