Thank you, Pastor Woolsey

Thank you Pastor Woolsey for being a minister who is not afraid to speak the truth and not afraid to speak out for what is right in God's sight. We as Christians need to get over our apathy, contentment, complacency, and acceptance of what is going on in our country and stand up for what is right. If we as Christians don't return to God for direction, we become part of the problem.

Clergy who speak only what people want to hear are guilty of misleading their people and will be held accountable to God. We all need to get back into the basics of the Bible. The way we should live is clearly spelled out in the Bible. Wisdom will be given to us if we ask. Still, God gives us the choice to obey Him or not.

It saddens me to see the spiraling decline of America, and to know we are destroying ourselves from within. Evil is rampant in America, killing of the innocent, school shootings, bombings, children bullying children to the point of suicide, greed, stealing, selling our job market overseas, drugs, immorality (which wears many faces), child abuse. We have gone from the land of opportunity to the land of opportunism. We have gone from the working class to the 'wanting' class. Judgment is falling upon America! Can't we feel it, can't we see it? There is none so blind as those who will not see. Just like the rain, judgment will fall upon the believers and non-believers alike. There is something we can do as individuals and as a nation. Return to God!

As it states in 2 Chronicles Chapter 7:14, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land."

It is up to us whether America is saved or not. If we choose not to return to God, then judgment will continue to fall upon America until we wake up and return to God or until the nation is destroyed. What is your choice for America?

Rita Campbell, Sunbury
