With the changes taking place in our country, should we not be concerned about our destination?

Will these changes cover the entire country: acceptance of gay marriage, legalized marijuana, less or no prayer at government meetings, refusal to display nativity scenes at certain public locations?

My dollar bills still say, "The United States of America" and "In God We Trust." Really? Our pledge to the flag says, "One Nation Under God." Are we telling the truth?

God's word is in the Bible. Is America going down the right road? Are we true to our confessions?

Our country was founded upon religious principles. The Pilgrims came to America for religious freedom -- not to turn away from God. Which way are we going now?
