Neglect of the Bible Has Lead America to Spiritual Weakness

What would happen if every preacher who believes the Bible got back to preaching the Bible in their Sunday sermons? Forget the politics. Forget the condemnation of politicians they don't like or lifestyles they don't lead. What if they just preached and taught and lived what the Bible says. What effect do you think that would have?

I believe we are weak spiritually and that is what has lead to our national weakness. Oh, we have military power, but we have lost moral power. Moral power is restored, not through the ballot box or lobbying Washington, but through the word of God and the example of Christ.

Revivals of the church began in the past when God's people came to their senses and prayed -- effectually ... fervently.

This is a unique opportunity for our generation to learn the real lesson of this attack on America. Is the greater danger without, or is it - as I believe - within?
