Pray for America

Adolph Hitler is history’s whipping boy. The horrible genocide of Hitler is always used as an example of evil. I do not know if the reported 6,000,000 lives taken are accurate or not. I know that it was not only Jews, but some Christians were included in Hitler’s “Final Solution.” It does not matter whether it was 6,000,000, or 4,000,000, or even 2,000,000 people killed, it was an evil, malignant program.

But Adolph Hitler was not the only genocidal maniac. It is reported that when Hitler was discussing this genocide, some of his officers pointed out the obvious negative image it would give to Germany. Hitler is said to have replied, “Who remembers the Armenians?” Indeed, beginning in 1915 the Ottoman Turks systematically killed well over 1,000,000 Armenians. To this day, the Turkish government denies the events of that period of time.

Of course, Stalin makes Hitler look like an amateur. Stalin was responsible for the deaths of 40,000,000 Ukrainians in the 1930s. Mao, the over-achiever, surpassed Stalin by causing the deaths of an estimated 50,000,000 Chinese citizens.

The Twentieth Century was a time of great evil. The lives of millions upon millions of people were taken, frequently by their own government.

But we in America can be proud, because the United States is seeking to break the record.

It is estimated that there have been over 50,000,000 abortions in American since Roe vs. Wade. That number is increasing by about 1,500,000 abortions each year. If the United States has not surpassed Chairman Mao, we will do so shortly.

When Cain killed Abel, the Lord said to Cain, “Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” (Genesis 4:10) If the blood of one man cries out to the Lord, how much more the blood of 50,000,000 innocents? The Lord cannot continue to bless America. His righteousness will not allow Him to do so.

Pray for America. Although President Obama said we are not a Christian nation, there will be a Christian Day of Prayer in Washington, D.C., on May 6th.

If you cannot be there in person, be there in the Spirit. Pray for America. God is gracious. May America repent of this atrocity. May God forgive us.
