U.S. to reap what it sows

President Obama won, but America lost.
What was supposed to be an election based on our opinion of the economy, surprisingly became an ideology of what can the government do for me.
The voters’ message was the cradle to the grave mentality, abortion with no regret, two states passing same sex marriages and two legalizing marijuana use. Also reckless government spending and massive debt and throwing Israel under the bus.
All these combined will be the death of the United States, but this is what the majority wants.
There is a price to pay for turning our back on God. America is going to reap what it has sowed.
It’s perplexing to think these people do not want pastors telling them through God’s word how to live, but these same people have no problem with the government controlling every aspect of their lives.
