Long have we felt that the United States has the best form of government in the world. Oh it is not perfect but it has always been leaps and bounds ahead of the rest..... in our opinion. Now in our form of democracy, we elect those who represent us but the people are supposed to have the final say...boy has that changed. The majority of the people in several states have voted in laws only to have the high court trump them.
Democracy really was doomed from the beginning. We the people have always gone astray even from the very beginning. When the Founding Fathers created the constitution and other documents that this country was supposed to be governed by, most if not all had one thing in common, their moral standard and guideline was the bible. So long as most of the people used the same standard to live their lives, then democracy worked pretty well. When that changes (changed) democracy begins to become worse and worse.
For the believer the times will get harder as the government begins to redefine more and more issues that God has already defined. This will put the true believer more and more often on opposing sides of our government. Will the church's presence shrink even more or will we fight?
In scripture the people always got off the right track and never returned on their own. Will God raise up someone to lead the people back one more time or is this it?
