When we as a nation, strive in vain to preserve the beauty of national life, forgetting our biblical roots, we are doomed.

From Colossians 2:6-7:  “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”
