Dear Glenn: I was listening to your program this morning, and you spoke of "The Righteousness of the Nations." Nice phrase, Glenn. Almost sounds like it might be right out of the Bible.
Righteousness is a good aspiration for anyone to have. And God wanted ancient Israel to have it.
You are probably a religious man, or you wouldn't be so much in favor of righteousness. But Glenn, you don't get people to join you in fervor for righteousness, unless they have a foundation for righteousness.
But you might say that Americans have a sense of what is right. Yes, many of them do, and where did it come from? From Judeo-Christian teachings that we have had. The founding fathers were God-fearing men, to a large extent.
But you've probably heard about "the corruption that is in the world through lust."
2 Pet 1:4 says “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
Most people have some desire to do what is right. But people often do what is wrong. What's your solution to the problem, Glenn? Just tell people to do right?
But God has a solution to the problem, and it's really the only solution. God’s solution is Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, who said, “You must be born again.” (John chapt. 3)
