Solid (and prophetic quote):
These provocative thoughts were set down by Professor Alexander Tyler around 1770 – seven years before the birth of the United States.
May we, as a nation, be careful not to repeat this pattern of history:
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,…” (Psalm 33:12)
Regardless of one’s political leanings, we must pray for our nation.
