Pastors: America's future and moral foundation clearly at risk

reading the Bible (man's hands)One of the country's leading evangelists is sounding a warning that America is under attack from within – and a respected Christian apologist couldn't agree with him more.

In a Facebook post on Veterans Day, Dr. Franklin Graham wrote: "It seems our nation is under attack – attack from within, from socialists who want to bring anarchy to our streets. The hard-won freedoms we have enjoyed in America are very much at stake."

Graham called for prayer for America's president and commander-in-chief as he leads the nation during these turbulent times: "[Pray] that God would give him wisdom, grace, and understanding for times such as these." He hash-tagged the post with the name of Donald Trump.

Apologist Dr. Alex McFarland has visited and spoken on thousands of high school and college campuses across the U.S. He agrees that America is under attack – and argues that it started decades ago in the classrooms of the nation's public schools.

"For decades, students have been told that there are no moral boundaries – we make our own rules, premarital sex is okay, if unintended pregnancies occur they are solved by abortion," he lists. "So, for decades there's been a militant, secular message being pumped into the minds of people."

He contends students have been taught that America is evil, that it was not founded on Christian values and that her founders were villains.

But McFarland says there's another institution that bears some responsibility for the rise of socialism and anarchy. "Another evidence of attack from within has been the deafening silence of America's pulpits," he accuses.

"If ever there were a time for the 600,000 ordained clergy to be thundering forth with truth about God's Word, righteousness, repentance, and revival, this is the moment."

McFarland is calling on America's pastors to gain courage to speak out against the spirit of the age that is attacking the country's moral foundation. The demise of the country, he warns, "is in the realm of spiritual battle right now" – and the only people who are appropriately poised to make a positive difference, he concludes, are "those who know the true and living God."
