Ronald Reagan warned you about this

The Bible is shunned from classrooms, prayer is banned at graduations and atheists have worked to remove any mention of God from public life.
Meanwhile, the nation is rocked with ongoing wars and horrific violence, and the innocent blood of children is shed in our schools.
The out-of-control federal government, oblivious to the nation’s real problem, believes the solution is to disarm law-abiding citizens and further limit their freedom.
What is happening to our beloved nation? Why aren’t Christians winning the battle for hearts, souls and freedom in America?
In 1982, then-President Ronald Reagan warned, “We can’t expect God to protect us in a crisis and just leave Him over there on the shelf in our day-to-day living. I wonder if sometimes He isn’t waiting for us to wake up, He isn’t maybe running out of patience.”
America has turned from God and has forgotten right from wrong.
In an effort to help awaken believers and non-believers alike to “the wickedness and evil that abound in our country,” WND founder Joseph Farah has launched a dramatic new national billboard campaign featuring the Ten Commandments.
The campaign kicked off with 11 major billboards – all in the heart of what some call “sin city,” Las Vegas. Farah is asking for contributions from those who recognize the Ten Commandments represent the glue that holds civilization together to take the campaign nationwide.
“The problem is America is not limited to atheists, agnostics, cults and non-believers,” says Farah. “In fact, the biggest problem America has is with those who call themselves believers but who act no differently than the worldliest individuals on the planet. You can call these people backslidden. You can call them false converts. Or you can call them undisciplined, nominal believers. What they all have in common is they are not in obedience to God. They are not even trying to follow the most basic moral law, as Jesus and the prophets all instructed.”
With that in mind, Farah is planning to erect hundreds of Ten Commandments billboards around the country in a move that is sure to annoy the American Civil Liberties Union and the organized atheists with the help of like-minded and like-spirited partners.
“The goal is two-fold,” Farah says. “I want to prick the consciences of believers and non-believers alike, and I want Americans to see the basis of all our laws as handed down by God at Mount Sinai in hopes they will repent of their sins and turn back to their Creator.”
America has never needed a campaign like this so badly, he says.
“The Ten Commandments have been banished from our schools,” says Farah. “They’ve been banished from our courtrooms and law schools. They’ve even been banished from some of our churches and synagogues. Look what has become of America since. Maybe it’s time to roll them out on highways and byways, in big cities and small towns so no one is without excuse as to the moral code the One True God gave us to govern ourselves.”
Farah and WND are providing seed money to the effort for the launch and publicity and hopes that Jews and Christians alike, all worshipers of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, will donate money to the campaign to erect the messages on public billboards from coast to coast.
“I don’t know what the result will be,” says Farah. “But I know our country and our people badly need a reminder of who guides the universe and the affairs of men and what He requires of us all. Americans need awareness of their sins before they can repent of them. And until we repent of our sins, America’s fate has been cast to the wind. America needs the Ten Commandments.”
You can make a donation to this campaign online in the WND Superstore or write checks to WND with a notation “Ten Commandments campaign” and send them to WorldNetDaily.com, Inc., 2020 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Suite 351, Washington, D.C. 20006.

“If you’re concerned about the future of America, heed God’s word in II Chronicles 7:14,” says Farah: “It says, ‘If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.’ But if we don’t understand our sin, which is defined by the Ten Commandments, how can we turn from our wicked ways? And how will God hear us? And how will He heal our land?”
Farah says, “America needs the Ten Commandments.”
