For a long time I have felt that we have allowed government to fill the spot God once did. We look to government for our rules, our morality, our protection, and our salvation. The only thing that was missing was a messiah figurehead. With Obama coming in and filling that position, I now wonder if people have left any room for God in their lives. Just think, 233 years ago, our government was founded. What did our federal government really do. The answer is not much. The document hasn't changed, yet a few decades later, we have established a statutory negation of the need of God. I doubt God will allow us to prosper as a nation without him, and I think we see that all around us.
