Thank you for your article “Pressing On” (“Avoiding the ‘spiritual cliff,’” ABN Jan. 10, 2013). You couldn’t have been more correct about the results of the removal of the use of God’s name from the public arena. Back a hundred years ago (well almost) I was teaching in a rural two-room grade school in southwest Missouri. We had a “Bible lady” who came to our school on a regular schedule to present the gospel and teach Bible stories through the use of flannel graph. She was a “circuit rider” who went to the rural schools in our county. We even celebrated “Christmas” instead of the “holidays” and had a Christmas pageant with Baby Jesus. Those days are long gone. It seems like we still don’t get it! God meant what He said in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 – He meant it then and He means it now. We may look, but we will not find any other deliverance from any of the “cliffs” looming before our nation.
Thanks for your leadership with ABN.
