America needs a revival

I was just a small boy when World War II broke out and my oldest brother joined the army and was sent to war. He was about to land in Japan when the war ended.

It was a happy day here in Newnan. I remember the car horns blowing and people being so excited, and R.D. Cole blowing their horn full blast.

There is something else I remember about World War II, and that was our churches were filled up because many had sons and husbands that were called to fight in that war.

I read just the other day a sermon in the Sword of the Lord newspaper by Shelton Smith, who said that most of today's churches are a haven of cobwebs.

America is in need of a revival like never before, because we can see that people have become caught up with fame and fortune rather than seeking to be a moral nation.

In today's world we are hearing about school shootings and young hoodlums breaking into homes and driving stolen cars and trucks into store fronts and looting all they can get away with.

That should tell all of us that we need a revival once again. We have so many children being born out of wedlock nowadays. When I was growing up here in Newnan, the decent girls would not date you unless their parents knew something about your background.

My concern is, will America have to endure a terrible disaster before we see a change in our society? God help us if we don't soon see America change from its present ways. Randall Harrison
