Believing the government can force specific people to be moral is disgusting

June 15, 2012
The Marietta Times

In a recent letter, the writer worries about the apparent desire to "totally abandon the biblical moorings of our great nation." Most of the letter doesn't deserve a response, as a response would give the ideas undeserved dignity. I will, however, address his statement that "When citizens choose to follow a way that is contrary to scriptural righteousness[,] the whole nation suffers because of it." I find it hard to believe that God finds it necessary to send hurricanes to kill individuals in an attempt to convert them to righteousness. The Bible taught me that I should come to Christ of my free will and comprehension of his teachings and God's love, not because I'm frightened of punishment.
