"From bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to complacency;
from complacency to apathy;
from apathy to dependency;
from dependence back again into bondage."

- Alexander Tyler, 1750



Do you think this has accurately described the United States since 1750 when the statement was given? Accurate? No? Discuss.

This cycle is driven by human nature. As Richard Kelly Hoskins said, "History does not change because the human heart does not change." The cycle can only be broken by total obedience to God's Law.

Basically the law of love. Seems easy enough.

It would appear that the US is in the last phase.

Sad, the great experiment had such promise.

I believe you're correct, we're in the last phase.

ABSOLUTELY INDEED.

And I think that

is a great explanation.

I have long felt that any church that was older than about a year and a half was well on the way to being DEAD, DRY HUSK PSEUDO-CHRISTIANITY or even cultish or outright apostate.

We have to TAKE UP OUR CROSS and DIE TO SELF

DAILY--and truly . . . not just in some white-washed pretend way.

That RELATIONSHIP business is what Christ died for and what The Father is serious about.

And without that intimate DANCE with HIM . . . it goes to blazes alarmingly quickly.

We CANNOT pull ourselves up by our bootstraps.

I think that's one of the great lessons America was designed of God to be to all Creation--that even the greatest form of Government in history turns evil when the citizens of the country foresake an intimate dance, relationship, walk, with God . . . submitted wholly in obedience, contrition, brokenness, humility TO HIM . . . in all their priorities and affairs.

ONLY THEN

Does He grant HIS ABUNDANT LIFE; FREEDOM, FULFILLMENT, PROVISION, SAFETY, AND JOY BEYOND MEASURE.
