Yes, a great Sermon! Sadly, as I listened to John faithfully present the truth regarding the sins of America in 2001, I thought of how the wickedness of his nation and mine has increased since that year and how the weakness of the opposition of the professing church has also increased.
In my land, professing separatist Christians are active in a government which has unrepentant former terrorists as fellow government ministers and which has financed sodomite organisations involved in promoting their abominations.
All too many believers shut their eyes to these facts which indicate yet further sad decline.

SHE ACCEPTS NO CORRECTION !! I returned today (Sept. 11, 2010) to listen again to this sermon. America turned a deaf ear to God's warning to her through the tragic events that HE ALLOWED to happen on Sept. 11, 2001. America has turned from "the light" of The Scriptures...having become a people that now have stooped so low that they are musing and entertaining themselves in public forums with the question, "Who made God?" and declaring that there is no creator, that the universe and all that is in it came from "nothingness." God's Word says, "...they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." There is such a thing as God lifting His hand of protection from off a people who "change the truth of God into a lie, and worship and serve the creature more than the Creator." Out of righteous judgment, God does give nations over to Satan to work their destruction. Seeing before my eyes the rapid spiriling downward of America on every front, I believe that she no longer has the favor of God upon her. She has so much turned to the "worshipping of self (the creature)" that God has given her over to the devil ("a reprobate mind") for the working of her demise (Romans 1:18-32).

Great warning. Great lessons for every day! Every calamity is from God's hands; God has a purpose in sending them; God warns the world and the church through them.

Great Sermon! America is great, all right! Great in materialism! Great in military might! Great in the gods of Manna, comfort and ease! Great for her sports idolatry! Baseball cancelled because of September 11? NOT FOR LONG!! Great in acceptance and promotion of lust and pornography, and great in dens of iniquity! Great in promiscuity! Great American Hollywood! Great Disneyland! Reader: Great judgments are yet to come upon America!
The terrorists have nukes, have chemical and biological weapons, and WILL use them as Almighty God allows!! America: your days are numbered. DO NOT LISTEN to the phony Americans who paint these days in pastels! The SWORD and PESTILENCE are at the doors! Prepare to meet thy God! Lost sinner, careless about your state: consider ETERNITY. Death will come when you do NOT expect it. Did the WTC victims prepare that day? You say, "Oh my god!" But is YOUR god the true and living God, the Father of The Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ? And you, child of God: wake up! where is your concern about spiritual matters?
WHY has God done this? Judgment must begin at the house of God. Christian: WAKE UP!!!! Open your eyes and LOOK IN: what are YOU pursuing? Where are your priorities? Have YOU TOO forgotten God?
Look o the fields: white unto harvest!
Did WTC victims get a witness?

Great Sermon! Some things are hard for us to see and some are even harder for us to understand.
I truly pray that we as a country will return to God, please let us remember that we are to get the Word out to the sinners in the streets, in the schools and even in the barrooms.
May God have mercy on us for ever shying away from that responsibility.

Excellent! This sermon answers the Who and Why. All government officials need to be reminded that God governs all His creatures and their actions.

Great Sermon! This is a sermon that would not be preached by many preachers. People may not like to hear it, but this country is no more righteous in God's sight than any other. Pr 8:36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. God's judgement and wrath is on this nation because we truly do not love Him or serve him.
