    Now This Haiku Is Deep

    Now ain't dat the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts and it takes courage to face it. We all have dirty souls. Thus, we must come to Jesus for cleansing. That's one thing that we as a nation, must do. Without Christ, though we be great, we are yet small.
    It is not enuff as a nation to throw cliches around in the air, such as "God Bless America". We must go deeper than that and humbly say "Jesus, forgive us...for we have sinned." America must look at her moral decay as a warning sign and get back on track or else we will continue to fall from here.

    This hard-hitting haiku totally sums up the spiritual condition of a great nation, but I believe America will turn her face towards God and live.

    You BETTA

    TELL THE GOSPEL TRUTH!!!!!!

    Have Mercy! This is it exactly!

    And to Joyce....not "America", the country, but certainly, "Americans", the individuals, will turn their faces toward God, and live. It is written.


    Thank you for this
