AMERICA THE GREAT
By A.M. Snead
Once upon a time...
There was a nation Great and strong
It knew the difference between right and wrong
It put its trust in God up high
And favored truth against a lie
But something happened as the years went by
You can hear its children plead and cry
For truth and justice they once knew
For the honor of the red, white and blue
So this nation once great and strong
Now frames mischief by a law
Puffed up with pride it stands tall
Thinking it is ruler over all
It's forgotten that Pride comes before destruction
It's cast off the bible and all God's instruction
It is wise in it's own conceit it does not recall
That a haughty spirit comes before a fall
And now this nation once great and wise
Allows our unborn children to suffer and die
And then redeem their honor by proclaiming great and small
"We've done nothing wrong- They weren't babies at all"
It's perverted God's word with all its abominations
Turning truth into lie, wallowing in deprivation
Women with women, Men with men
It's an alternate lifestyle, It isn't a sin
It hands out birth control like candy and pop
"Just protect yourself- And Don't get caught"
It's teaching our youth that sin isn't sin
Have a good time, there's no Hell at the end
This nation stands up before one and all
And condemns our adversaries for their immoral laws
It calls them killers, cowards and thieves
When all along it's doing the same things
We are called traitors if we speak the truth
Criminal and abusive if we correct our youth
Accused of hate crimes if we speak reality
That God is against Homosexuality
This nation was founded on God's commandments
Where did it go wrong? What could have happened?
One thing is for certain, listen close one and all
If it doesn't get back to God this nation will fall
It saddens my heart to make this call
But perhaps America the Great...Isn't so great after all.
Perhaps I will be thought of as traitorous to my country because of the words I've written here, but I would rather be considered traitorous than live a hypocritical existence. And anyone who blinds their eyes to the atrocities committed by our own government and in turn condemns other nations for their abominations and terrors, are the very example of hypocrosy. Because our leaders wear a suit and tie while they cheat and murder for their own gain, because they commit their crimes under the guise of a law...does this redeem them? Not in God's eyes, I guarantee it.

|Do defenders of th flag ever burn it first? Is it shameful to be an American today? In
your own personal comfort and surroundings
with computer, desk, home, TV, furnishings, and the whole ball of wax; how can you throw the first stone? Please divest yourself of earthly possessions, dress in sack cloth, pour ashes over your head and follow Jesus into the streets, crying out like a poor, defensless lamb in the nght. Abandon your wolf's perch and I will glady follow you through hell. Bill
