Terrible Midwest Floods, California Fires, High Food Prices, Soaring Gasoline Costs, Falling Home Values & Endless Wars - Just WHAT Is Happening?

Another day and another set of bad news.

Today war broke out between Russia and Georgia.

Another war.

Just what we need.

Earlier this summer we had unprecedented wildfires in California:

What was it before that? There has been so much bad news this year.

Terrible Midwest floods?

A record setting tornado outburst?

Food prices absolutely exploding?

Gasoline hitting ridiculous price levels that we have never seen?

Food riots igniting in various areas all around the world?

The stunning crash of the housing market?

Endless wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that are claiming lives on both sides and sucking the finances of the United States totally dry?

What in the world is going on here?

An ABC News-Washington Post survey recently found that only fourteen percent of Americans believe that the United States is headed in the right direction, tying the all-time record low.

So what is the right direction for America?

Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans have no idea what the right direction is anymore.

Over the next few months we will hear endless opinions from various politicians about what we should do.

But what we will not hear from any of these talking heads on the television is the real answer.

The real answer is that we need to repent and turn back to the Lord God Almighty.

America should take advice from the wisdom found in the Scriptures.....

II Chronicles 7:14 -

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

As long as the United States continues to pile up mountains of sin and refuses to turn to God, then America will continue to experience an increasing level of judgment from the Lord.

What do you think about all of this? Feel free to leave your opinion in our comments section below.
