Moral citizens are needed

John Adams, the second president of the United States, said:

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

With this in mind, we should view any attempt to get us to depart from the moral laws given to us by God as an attack on our government. Every social degradation erodes the government. Thus, a culture that promotes promiscuity is not just offending a just God, but is destroying its own government. Everyone seems so concerned about terrorists' attacks, but who is concerned about breaking God's laws? As a society gets more and more permissive of behaviors that are contrary to the law of heaven, the society becomes less and less stable until it falls, like Rome. Make no mistake, the real threat to our safety is that we won't obey God. Our government is headed for disaster in the direct proportion that it treats God's laws as optional or obsolete.
