Righteousness, God’s right and wrong concerning the moral issues of today, must always take precedence over economics. In 1909, the Reverend Francis Grimke gave a sermon warning what America’s future would look like if we ever departed from righteousness, he said:
“If the time ever comes when we shall go to pieces, it will . . . be . . . from inward corruption – from the disregard of right principles . . . in the Declaration of Independence, in the Golden Rule, in the Ten Commandments, in the Sermon on the Mount. Unless we hold, and hold firmly to these great fundamental principles of righteousness. . . . our Union . . . will be “only a covenant with death and an agreement with hell.”
Today, people of faith need to take up the sword of the spirit (The Bible) and make a stand for righteousness so that we may see the hand of God move in our nation once again.
