Our Country - William W. Quinn


This month our country celebrates it's 224th Birthday. With the exhilarated interest in the coming new millennium let's take a look at a comment from William W. Quinn.

The Worlds Great Civilizations averaged a cycle of 200 years. Those Societies progressed thru this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith. From spiritual faith to great courage. From great courage to liberty. From liberty to abundance. From abundance to selfishness. From selfishness to complacency. From complacency to apathy. From apathy to dependency. From dependency back again into bondage.

As the United States has passed its 200th birthday, and in view of the recent epidemic of immorality , I wonder how your readers would assess America's current position in this cycle. William W. Quinn, Ret. Lt. Gen., U.S. Army

Peace of heart can be difficult to find in these days of constant stress. The problems in our society seem in- surmountable. Every day our News Commentators bring more questions that aren't solved. But we are thankful that the Bible has the answer for every troubled emergency when we understand the IF and THEN in II Chron. 7:13-15, ...and follow the options for the solution..

"When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, IF my people who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, THEN will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. My eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place." NIV
