Has America Substituted the Constit

Has America Substituted Constitution for God?


As America seeks it’s Constitution for a “moral guide…”

Many Americans are filled with

arrogance and pride.

Many say they don’t believe in God or the Bible.

And millions each day are turning to “false idols.”


Idols of power, greed, and lust just to name a few…

It’s any wonder people know “the right thing to do.”


Many don’t read the Bible, and say it was written by men.

As America drifts deeper into

 a lot of bondage and sin!


As God looks at this country, he sees the wicked deeds.

Meanwhile, the heart of this country daily bleeds!


Sin, not the Constitution, creates a God

and man separation.

The Bible provides the answers for

 this confused generation.


America…  Wake up!  It’s time to answer God’s holy call!

It’s time we confess our sins!  Come one and all!


It’s time to repent for our lost and sinful way of living!

Christ’ shed blood, for our life,

is what he’s freely giving!


It’s time that we stand on Christ! 

A true and solid foundation!

And time to seek God’s grace and healing

 for this hurting nation!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
