Tony Evans — When a Nation Forgets God
We started out with the statement, One Nation under God. I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, you know, liberty and justice for all. You know, we started out with that. Now we are one nation away from God. Yes, his name gets thrown up. His rule is rejected.
What happens when a nation forgets God? This is Dr. Tony Evans with "The Urban Alternative," and this is somewhat of a somber series, but these are somber days because we're a nation in crisis, precisely because God has been forgotten.
Yeah, we use him for invocations and benedictions, but his meaningful presence is no longer here in our nation. And as part of this series, Turning a Nation to God, we wanna give hope, but we've gotta understand the problem in how the world works when God is no longer an intricate part of our decision making.
So let's go to the Word of God, and let's discover clearly what it means and why it matters when a nation forgets God.
