I think what I like so much about this article is Pastor Timothy Barr is not just giving us his opinion, he gives many biblical examples of why we should not be guilty of this particular sin.

As a nation we have committed sins of commission and omission; God has blessed America more than any other nation in the world and yet we have turned our backs to Him. Continue reading →
