What On Earth Is Happening?

With recent hurricanes Katrina and now Rita bringing widespread devastation to our countries landscape do you think these are signs of the last days before the return of Jesus Christ or just the effects of nature on whatever is in her path? It seems that there are as many thoughts as there are people as to "What On Earth Is happening?". Is this God's wrath on America or the effects of global warming or something else all together?

If you have read the paper this past week you could not help but notice the Supreme Court took up the issue once again regarding the 10 Commandments. Suffice it to say the debate continues to rage on. A friend of mine just returned from Washington D.C. after his first visit to our nations Capitol. He was amazed at all the debate over the so called "separation of church and state" when it is clear to all who visit any of the original monuments that our country was not just founded on a religious belief system but on biblical Christianity and specifically, the 10 Commandments.

My friend said he saw a shirt with an American Flag on it and the caption that read "Freedom Of Religion... Not Freedom From religion. I loved it...It's been said many times that faith in God is what made America great and when America ceases to place her faith and trust in God then America will cease to be great. I agree. What are your thoughts?
