The Delightful Way

Spiritual Awakening or National Disaster?

“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

–Douglas MacArthur

America has been on this track for 50+ years. At this point, we must be reaching critical mass. Ultimately, each of us individually is responsible to make a collective difference. What will you choose?

Our responsibility, as I see it, is two-fold:

A) Pursue a spiritual awakening aggressively, starting with our own hearts and minds. We need to be in fellowship with God and immersed in His Scriptures. I would also suggest getting acquainted with the writings of great men of the faith from past spiritual awakenings—starting with Jonathan Edwards, who I believe to be very relevant for this generation.

B) Prepare for a national disaster. Should one occur during our lifetimes, it will provide a wonderful opportunity to minister to the needs of others. Obviously, organizations like the Red Cross and the Salvation Army are wonderful tools for this, but you should also consider getting advanced training in survival, emergency medicine, self-defense, disaster counseling, and so forth. I would consider this a priority for every young man.
