    I believe America is just as wicked today ... as it was back then in that time and I do believe we have the same God. and America had better change or suffer the same conquences as Sodom and gomorrah... That's what I think.

    To Frank L. - the Bible doesn't say because - it's not germaine to Jesus' plan of salvation. He gave us what we need to know to be with Him eternally.

    I know the prophet is speaking of Israel but it makes me think of the way America is headed also..... America is standing for evil and we (the church) must repent as the kingdom of God is At hand...
