More Symbolism over Substance

I realize I am in the absolute minority here, but first of all Christ is not on the cross, He is seated at the right hand of the Father.

Second, God (at least from Scripture) seems to have no desire nor purpose in "saving this nation."

Third, God only has a covenant and unique relationship with one nation, Israel, not America.

Fourth, prior to His return to earth, evil men are going to wax or grow worse and worse.

 Fifth, God has given mankind and this nation over to a reprobate mind, this reprobate or depraved mind has ascended into the White House and the Supreme Court.

Sixth, even in God's providence and sovereignty there is no going back for this nation. We need to grieve for the sin of man in this nation, work while it is yet light in preaching the gospel. There is coming a time when no man can work.

Seventh, in regards to the original caption, "What A Powerful Picture," I do not find it powerful but repugnant.

Excellent points Gregg, I agree. This picture is pointless; what this nation needs is men to stand up and proclaim the Gospel as well as warn sinners to flee from the wrath that is coming.
There is no power in a picture or any image, the word of God clearly states where the power lies, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Romans 1:16
This nation has suppressed God's truth, this nation loves sin and wallows in it. God has turned America over to what it loves .... sin. The days will grow even darker, deception will continue to take hold in sinners hearts because they reject truth and because Satan's minions are occupying pulpits all across this land, but Christ has His little flock that He loves and will protect. The spirit of Anti-Christ is rampant in America.

The coming of Christ is at hand, may all God's elect be watchful and use what little time is left wisely.

Thank you Lyn! Your points are right on also. By the way, I had responded in the comment section to the original posting on FaceBook. I was critized for having a "lecturing tone that was uncalled for." (And that was by a pastor)

Sadly, many pastors of our day are void of the Spirit's unction in their preaching, their messages center on man and pleasing the sinful appetite. They will soon have to answer for their folly. Praise the Lord for your strong stance on truth, there is a remnant and we will face backlash from professing 'Christians'.
