Letter to the editor: Jesus the Answer

There is an answer. The morals of America are going to the pits and prison populations are growing like a monster cancer. Anyone with common sense knows if you destroy the foundation of something it will not last very long.

This country was founded by the people who believed in God and the Ten Commandments but too many people in places of authority today think we have gotten so smart that we don’t need God anymore. They keep Him out of the schools and now we need police in schools to keep our kids from killing each other.

The answer is Jesus Christ, who loved us sinners so much that he was willing to die on a cruel cross so if we would admit we are sinners, ask for forgiveness and ask for Jesus to take control of our lives, our lives will change. Jesus is the only One  who can change a sinner’s heart.  Any farmer or gardener knows that you have to sow the seeds if you want to see a harvest. We have to get out of the four walls of our churches and sow the seed and pray.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, but the nation that forgets God will be utterly destroyed.

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.“ (II Chronicles 7:14)
