Greg Laurie on Why Bible Prophecy Makes No Mention of America
y Moody Adams “Bible prophecy related to the end times mentions many nations, including Libya, Iran, Iraq Ethiopia, and possibly even China and Russia, but not the United States of America” writes Pastor Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Church in Riverside, Calif.
One reason he gives is that the U.S. could be destroyed by a nuclear war.
Another possible reason could be that the U.S. might decline as a world power, Laurie says, quoting Proverbs 14:34, which reads, "Righteousness exalts, a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people."
"As our country becomes more and more secular, systematically eliminating God and the Bible from our education system, courts, and the arts, we will begin to reap the inevitable results of sin. We will begin to rot from the inside," Laurie warns. "I think to some degree, we already have [seen that happen] as we have seen the breakdown of the family, rampant crime and so many other problems that have come from disobeying God."
