Americans Are Preparing To Elect A President, Will America Win Or Loose?

Updated on January 28, 2012

America Is In Dire Need

A New President Or The Current President To Lead Our Country Out Of Distress?
This is what some in the news media have outlined as the number 1 reason for the public interest in the upcoming presidential election.
To the idealist this might seem true, but to the realist they can see how the differing groups are gathering support for their individual needs and wants.
And to those special interest groups who are only concerned about 1 or 2 issues, they will selfishly sacrifice the welfare of America to get their own way.
History has shown this, time and time again.
And looking back at this kind of political maneuvering we can see America has been going down the road towards self destruction, and even today America is suffering from the consequences

The Spiritually Blind Never Have Victory

As a Christian who has been taught by the principles of 1st John 2:27 and John 14:26. I can see the answer to America's woes, and it is right before the eyes of the American people.
However, As history shows the American people will not listen to the knowledge that comes from the one who created all things and knows all things.
So they suffer needlessly in anguish.

The Current Christian State Of Affairs Is Not Good

Christianity In The U.S.A.
As of July 21 2011 The U.S.A. population was over 311 million.
At 311,800,000
How Many Christians Are There In The USA?
From Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia
The majority of Americans (60% to 76%) identify themselves as Christians
i.e. 60% = 187,080,000 or 76% = 236,968,000

According to the Gallop Poll on July 8, 2011
In the U.S.A. 3 out of 10 people say they interpret the Bible literally, saying it is the actual word of God.
This is similar to what Gallup has measured over the last two decades, but down from the 1970s and 1980s.
A 49% plurality of Americans say the Bible is the inspired word of God but that it should not be taken literally, consistently the most common view in Gallup's nearly 40-year history of this question.

The Answer For America's Victory

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, And Will Heal Their Land.

Christian's, We Have The Ball In Our Court

With the majority of Americans identifying themselves as Christians
What Are We Christians Going To Do?
Do We Christians Want America Healed?


Christians have to see that God's word did not say that Americans have to humble themselves, and pray, and seek God's face, and turn from their wicked ways.
God's Word said, If my people, which are called by my name, etc.
The title Christian comes from the name of Christ. i.e. Jesus Christ
Christians are called by the name of Christ.

So I ask again
What Are We Christians Going To Do?
Do We Christians Want America Healed?

Jesus Christ Our Lord and Our God is watching and waiting, and is more than willing to forgive our sins, and to heal our land.
But we Christians have to make the first move.

      Thank you for the clarification. Good advice. Are you suggesting anyone in particular that has these qualities for the office of President?

      Hello gifalcone

      It's not prayer that I was suggesting. If you read

      2 Chronicles 7:14 God is requiring action,

      1st To become humble, humility is a act of our will thru the knowledge that God Is Holy and mankind is not. also knowing that without Christ we cannot approach God thru prayer.

      2nd To seek the face of God. God said Jeremiah 29:13

      And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

      3rd To repent i.e. turn from our wicked ways = sin

      These are all actions. Hope this helps

      I enjoyed reading your Hub. I voted it ^ & interesting. I have yet to conclude the direction of "Will America win or Lose." Now, I believe in God, and I pray to my creator, but if you're suggesting that 200 million Americans can heal the land through Prayer alone, I feel compelled to offer some input. Prayer is fine, provided one moves their feet thereafter. Please correct me if I went astray in your message. God Bless you and yours and God Bless America.
