The Blessings Of God For America

God Has Great Blessings For America On Condition of Righteousness
The Things Of My Soul: My Book of Mormon Study
Alma 9: 23-24
23 And now behold I say unto you, that if this people, who have received so many blessings from the hand of the Lord, should transgress contrary to the light and knowledge which they do have, I say unto you that if this be the case, that if they should fall into transgression, it would be far more tolerable for the Lamanites than for them.
24 For behold, the promises of the Lord are extended to the Lamanites, but they are not unto you if ye transgress; for has not the Lord expressly promised and firmly decreed, that if ye will rebel against him that ye shall utterly be destroyed from off the face of the earth?
The Lord has blessed America tremendously; therefore, where much is given much is expected. Here is a list of some of the great blessings Christ has offered America on conditions of righteousness.
These glorious gifts are conditional on establishing Jesus Christ and His teachings as America’s priorities. As a result, these incredible blessings will be taken away if we as a nation reject Jesus Christ.
Therefore, freedom of religion and speech must remain one of our core freedoms, and defend it against anyone or anything that threatens it. For instance, the Constitution of the United States does not say “separation of church and state.”
Thus, the Founding Fathers never intended to separate God from government and public life. That is why they felt strongly that a devoted religious life was the best way to perpetuate freedom.
Unfortunately, many groups in America and in the world seek to destroy religion and religious freedom. Those people that fight against Christ and what He stands for are the anti-Christ’s.
God stands for marriage between a man and woman, which is the only acceptable definition of marriage to Him. Children hold a special place in His heart, and I can’t imagine the pain God feels about how we have desecrated life through abortions.
I invite you to join me at church on Sunday's. We meet from 9:00 A.M to noon. Sacrament is our first meeting that lasts about an hour, and this meeting we are all together, and then we split up to Sunday School. The Sacrament Meeting is the most important meeting of all the church meetings. When you arrive grab anyone and tell them about this website and explain that you are visiting. Also, ask to meet our branch mission leader and the full time missionaries before Sacrament Meeting starts. My chapel address is 1928 E. South Campus Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah. It is at the University of Utah campus, in the institute area. My branch is a singles branch, but if you are married with children don't let that stop you from visiting our Sacrament Meeting and chatting with our branch mission leader and full time missionaries.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a worldwide church. Most likely there is a chapel near you.
There is nothing more important in this life or in this world than the gospel of Jesus Christ, as revealed by the Apostles and Prophets because it finds evil and wicked men and transforms them into good men, and good men into righteous men. Ultimately, the gospel of Jesus Christ is the world’s only hope for salvation, peace and safety.
