America has been blessed for the last 200 years simply because America’s original settlers, the Pilgrim fathers, came for the sake of God. They wanted to create God’s Kingdom.
However, America is selfish in wanting to protect only the white people’s interests. Americans think, “We don’t want the people of all those different colours of skin coming to this country. They are taking away our jobs, our fortunes, and our future.” This is wrong thinking because this nation does not belong to the white people. Who were the original landlords of this country? The First Nation People. So white people are actually the guests of this country. The guests came into the country and kicked the hosts out. But still God blessed the white people and allowed them to prosper in this country, while the Indians were sacrificed. Why? Because when God looked at the Pilgrims and the early settlers, He saw that these white people were a different kind of white people. They were here sacrificially trying to build a nation under God and trying to offer hope and inspiration to the rest of the world. God allowed the white people to prosper for 200 years because He knew they had the capacity to help the rest of the world. However, unless white people serve the greater purpose of God, they no longer have any justification to claim ownership of this country. God always expected this nation to be a God-centred nation. America should become the ideal society, expounding true love and going out to help the entire world.
But today, as American people do business with the rest of the world, are they doing the will of God? Are they committing themselves completely for the sake of other countries? American people should be saying, “Even if we lose all of America, we’d rather give to benefit the entire world.” If America did that, it would never perish. But America has alienated the rest of the world. Why? Because this country lives selfishly and tries to win benefit for itself, while at the same time it is spreading immorality throughout the world. If Americans truly worked unselfishly and committed every ounce of their energy and every drop of their blood and sweat for the sake of the world, then the entire world would line up right behind America. There would never be such a slogan as “Yankee Go Home!”
America has been known as the melting pot, a land where the oppressed people of all nations can live together peaceably. But today in this country, there is more division among races and nationalities than ever before. More and more, individualism prevails. How can true love survive in such an environment? This country cannot prosper with this attitude.
