Something to think about.
“Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord.”
Jeremiah 17:5 ESV
We as a nation have become this man, we have replaced “in God we trust” with our own rights of self-determination. We have said in our hearts I am the master of my domain. We have turned our hearts away from God and substituted Him with an image of ourselves. We glory in out strength and intellect; we have gloried in our accomplishments. We have placed ourselves before God, and we are cursed.
