The Greatness of America! The Christian’s Declaration of Independence

My Dear Friend Jim McAtee sent the following to me and I wanted to share with you.  America,  Bless GOD, and live!

THE GEATNESS OF AMERICA   Early in the nineteenth century the French statesman, Alexander de Tocqueville, made a study of democracy in our country and wrote as follows:

“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there.

” I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her fertile fields and boundless forests, and it was not there.

 “I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there.

     “I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her public school system and her institutions of learning, and it was not there.

     “I sought for the greatness and genius of America  in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution, and it was not there.

     “Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.

     “America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Just for Me and for You to

Remember It’s To Be

All About Him & when It’s Not

We cease to be blessed & are

On our way out as a Nation.
