Abraham Lincoln said, "At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."
It is important that we remember the words of Lincoln as we look at the path that America is on. He is surely correct that if America is to die it will be by suicide. This can be said of any nation that has been great: They have not been, nor will they be destroyed from without, but will be killed from within by means of a decayed society.
5 Steps to Kill a Nation will examine the Ten Commandments and identify five Biblically-based principles that a nation cannot ignore if it has any desire to survive, let alone thrive. Each chapter will uphold the designated principle and see how America is doing in light of that particular tenet.
Proverbs 14:34 lays the groundwork for what we will be exploring when it says, "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Any nation that engages in these five steps will, in short order, become a reproach to all people.
We must remember that God is the ultimate Judge of the nations. Psalm 9:17-20 tells us,
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.
Arise, O Lord, do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your sight. Put them in fear, O Lord, that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
Nations that do not heed God's word will surely die! The passage above specifically states that it is the "nations that forget God" that face this catastrophic end. This is the place where we will begin in Chapter One. This list gives us a "roadmap" of the various themes we will be exploring in 5 Steps to Kill a Nation and How the Stop the Bleeding.
Destroy the Family
Take What Isn't Yours
Hate Your Neighbor
These are the steps an unraveling society takes to kill a nation. These are the errors we must correct if we are going to stop the bleeding and save America!
