President Obama
President Lincoln believed the Civil War was God’s judgment on the United States of America. In calling for a National Day of Prayer and Fasting in 1863, he said, “Nations, like individuals, are subjected to punishments and divine chastisements,” as he called Americans to turn back to God. After the war ended, leaders inaugurated a Memorial Day event. The threefold purpose was to honor the deceased servicemen, reflect on their sacrifice and look forward to rebirth as a nation. Abraham Lincoln expressed his genuine conversion after he himself pondered the carnage and realized the tremendous toll Americans experienced because of our nation’s sins. On the observance of this Memorial Day, which we celebrated yesterday and which traditionally marks the start of our summer season, I’d like to humbly ask a question of our president as we see his woeful leadership contributing to this nation’s decline. May President Obama’s hero speak to him from the grave to repent and begin exercising the courageous Christian leadership America needs before it’s too late. More
