Author, Richard Capriola, suggests that God has judged straying nations in the past and certainly has the power, authority and ability to repeat this practice. Does anyone care? Does anyone fear a national punishment from God?
This captivating book walks us through various topics such as hunger, homelessness, marriage, child abuse and several other categories. It provides God’s point of view as stated in the Bible and presents facts, statistics and narrative on where our country currently stands on these issues.
Capriola raises the very important question of wondering how long God will stand by as our moral standards crumble to unprecedented levels. He quotes Thomas Jefferson as stating, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and His justice will not sleep forever.” Can you just imagine what Thomas Jefferson might say today?
Is the United States of America truly a nation that follows God's principles? This is the question that this books seeks to answer. Filled with scripture and statistics, the overall message of the book was very meaningful and the topics were interesting. This book has an incredible amount of potential but I believe that it fell short in a few areas.
Throughout the book, I felt like there where too many statistics and quotes and not many original ideas. There were too many facts and not many conclusions. I sometimes got lost in the statistics and forgot what point the author was trying to make.
I really enjoyed the Biblical messages throughout the book. The message of not being gluttonous, greedy, lustful, ect. was a meaningful message. The parts of the book that included original ideas was very thought provoking. Although I do agree with much of what this book states, many problems of why the United States is not a God following nation were presented but a solution to this problem was not discussed in this book. If there were more unique ideas and solutions to the problems presented throughout this book, I would have enjoyed it much more.
Overall, the message was wonderful but the statistics bogged down much of the book. Even though this book was not the perfect book for me, it may be for you. I encourage you to give this book a try.
Some would argue that we are not, nor have we never been, "One Nation Under God", but there is clear evidence that the majority of our founding fathers did seek wisdom from God and studied Scripture. "The ability to see things from God's point of view" is the definition of wisdom used in the book and Capriola makes his point that our current lawmakers are further away from seeking wisdom when crafting current laws and decisions that affect the social policies that affect us all.
While I did differ slightly in the author's conclusion in some of the chapters, this is a book that is free from political party views and does give Scripture to back his argument. I do agree with his statement that "One Nation Under God" should be a call to action for our leaders and not merely a slogan. If we continue our current defiance against the wisdom of God, and continue to move away from Him, we will have to face the consequences. Capriola makes a valid argument that "the future of our nation may rest on our commitment to create policies and financial priorities that return us to living out the words---one nation under God".Read more ›
America was founded on the fundamentals of Christianity, derived from God’s Holy Word by our forefathers. Recently, and more so in past decades, we have become a nation that procreates and tolerates lust, greed and all manner of unrighteousness at all levels – politically and socially - to include the neglect of the poor, the hungry and needy, legal abortion, the decline of marriage. America has become a society that has an unquenched love for money and self, not to mention a decaying moral attitude with divorce, the neglect and abuse of children and the porn industry all on the rise.
To all degrees, Richard Capriola, points out that God’s Word and point of view indicate that there should be a shift in America’s national and social polices that branch and begin from the heart of God’s Word. He encourages our politicians, including individuals to create and align their polices under the mighty decree of God, lest we (America) become a “nation under judgment (Deuteronomy 8:20).
There is mercy, hope and light to found in living a righteous life, under obedience to the wisdom of God.Read more ›
