As I have looked at the situation America is in, it bothers me because I believe this is a sin issue, a greed issue that America is facing. America is the greatest country on earth, but we’re burying our children in debt they cannot bear, all because we are a greedy people. It’s a sin that will soon catch up with us all. At the beginning of this month when the “Debt Ceiling” was raised I strongly stated to some friends that this won’t stop the crisis, it just postpones it unless we do something. This is not a Democrat/Republican issue; it’s a spiritual issue that as the people of God we must speak against.
I LOVE HOW BEAUTIFULLY DAVE RAMSEY PUT IT WHEN HE SAID… “The federal government will take in $2.173 trillion in 2011, and spend $3.818 trillion, overspending by $1.645 trillion. The U.S. is already $14.2 trillion in debt. Here’s what that would look like if we ran our homes like politicians run our government…if our household income was $55,000/yr, we’d be spending $96,500/yr. So, in 2011 we’d add $41,500 of debt to our current debt of $366,000!”
Friends, I’m not telling you how to vote, but bottom line we must tell our government, cuts are not enough, it is sin to spend more than we make, and we will not vote for you if you continue to overspend. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
