The family is the glue that binds society together. Every society in history which has been strong and prosperous has been so because the family was strong and prosperous. I am not necessarily talking about prosperous in money but prosperous where it counts: character, integrity, love, commitment.
What caused the fall of the Roman Empire? The Roman Empire fell after the family had already fallen. The Roman society began to falter morally. They began to do disgusting, sinful things. These sins probably included adultery, murder, homosexuality, etc. When sin begins to overtake a society it then puts tremendous stress on the family unit. Divorce runs rampant in the society creating a chasm within the family. New laws are put in action which support this severing of the family. Before long, the society is gone. When the family unit is pulled apart then the society will crumble every time.
So, where does America stand? What is her future? Well, if we modeled history, then it doesn't look good. Immorality has began to consume our society. We have couples living together out of wedlock. Adultery has become the pastime of many. We have young boys getting young girls pregnant and then leaving that girl and the child inside her to fend for themselves. Even worse, we have children being murdered for the sake of convenience all in the name of a euphemism - ABORTION! This is just to mention a few of our problems.
So, what is America's future? It depends on the people. If America will turn away from her sinful ways and come back to "one nation under God" then she will be saved. It all begins with the individual human heart. Who controls your life? Whom do you serve? Americans must address these fundamental questions. These are the questions of life. For me, I know the answers to these questions. I speak as Joshua in the Bible when he said, "But if you don't want to serve the Lord, you must choose for yourselves today whom you will serve.... As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15 NCV).
