Morality in America

Morality in America

When studying the founding of the United States, you can’t help but encounter the faith of the nation’s forefathers. Time and again they recognized God’s hand in the shaping of America. You will find Him repeatedly mentioned in their words and documents. And you will find Him having an active, vibrant role in the country’s early history.

Today, God continues His work in America – but it’s in a nation that has clearly lost its moral compass. Every week, “Morality in America” will address the myriad of moral concerns facing the United States and undermining its Godly heritage.  After you read, remember to intercede in prayer for America – that this nation will return to the Christian standards that once defined it.

Americans Need Better Water, Roads

Morality in America

Jesus is the "LIving Water" and the "Way"

By Nikolas Grosfield

President Trump has once again called on Congress to upgrade America’s roads, airports and rail lines by $1 trillion. He called for both public and private investments in a national infrastructure program.

"Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways gleaming across our beautiful land," Trump said of the initiative. "TO launch our national rebuilding, I will be asking the Congress to approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in infrastructure of the United States—financed through both public and private capital—creating millions of new jobs."

After President Trump addressed Congress on February 28, Fox News host Sean Hannity interviewed Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao on the nation’s infrastructure. She began by reciting popular political buzzwords like rebuilding, innovative ideas, and making America great again. Hannity pressed for details, and Chao gave one example of government and private dollars working together to improve roads, energy needs, and other aspects of American infrastructure.

If and how this will work is yet to be seen. But the Constitution empowers government to "insure domestic tranquility" and "promote the general welfare" of the people of the United States. This seemingly would include national infrastructure, though to what extent may be a debate for every generation.

"Infrastructure" is not a very old word. Its origin dates from the late nineteenth or early twentieth centuries. The concept would have made little sense in a pre-industrialized culture. But networks of modern transportation, communication, energy, health, and education services across America (and around the clock), practically forced infrastructure upon the country. Once in place, systems of water and plumbing, heating and cooling, roads and bridges, sewage and waste, television and telephones, internet and electricity, and schools and hospitals require a lot of maintenance, which can pose any of the following challenges:

As Americans, all these issues are fair game for intelligent debate and concern. But as Christians, worry and bitterness are permanently out-of-bounds. Ponder how these scriptures may be helpful in responding to government activities:

Finally, consider Jesus’ words to the Samaritan woman at the well. She had staggering problems in a worldly sense: multiple divorces and adultery. Her understanding of her issues mattered, yet Jesus’ response was entirely spiritual, offering to meet her deepest needs with the "living water" of Himself (John 4). Likewise, as Jesus’ disciples wondered about His and their worldly future at the Last Supper, Jesus tells them He is "the way" to the Father (John 14). And in Matthew 6, you can almost simultaneously hear some of Jesus’ other words: "Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things (earthly needs) will be added to you."
