    "Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth..." To all heaven and earth is the cry of the Prophet, to look at what happens with God and His people. People think that they don't matter enough, and that their little lives aren't going to affect the "vast scheme of things." But God said, "You are my witnesses;" and for better or worse, thus it must be. If you do well, men will see; and so too if you sin!

    America is not more wicked than any other nation on earth. America does strive to allow people to self rule. There is separation of church and state. People are not stoned to death for adultery, or their heads cut off because they do not have freedom of speech or freedom of religion. In America one is not killed for being a Christian unless it is by a terrorist with doctrine from a foreign nation.
