With a president who opposes Israel, forces citizens to fund abortions, and supports anti-family legislation, is there any hope for America?
Nashville, Tenn., January 22, 2014—Ralph Reed, founder and chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, believes that in spite of America’s recent turn toward becoming a second-rate power, the nation could be on the edge of a great moral reversal.
In his latest book, Awakening (Worthy Publishing, March 2014), Reed says: “America is rife with the warning signs of a country in decline. Human trafficking, legalized gambling, divorce, drug use, and abortion are rampant. President Obama’s domestic policy is outright hostile to religion.” According to Reed, “Obama’s international policies do little to protect Christians from terror around the world. In addition, he is the first U.S. president to openly support gay marriage while in office. How can anyone be hopeful that America’s best days are still to come?” His answer: It is not too late—as long as faithful Americans act now.
Drawing on powerful instances from history when nations recovered from serious moral and economic decline, Reed urges readers to take action, standing firm for the values that have made the United States the envy of the world for two centuries. In fact, Reed believes America could be on the cusp of a great awakening spiritually, morally, and politically if the faithful will pray, repent, be civic-minded, and refuse to give up.
Reed states, “We need leaders who say what they mean, do what they say, and whose rhetoric provides a road map for how they will lead.” He also urges that Americans need to band together and live with integrity, upholding the founding principles of the United States.
