Americans are Passionate about Values

August 06, 2014

“In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” – Judges 21:25

People are always saying Americans don’t have any values. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. Americans are passionate about their values. Republicans and Democrats battle it out in congress over values of the budget and spending and debt.

There is a passion throughout America about values concerning what is right when it comes to the use of money in our government. We see pro-life groups and pro-choice groups – very opposite in their view about abortion. But one thing that is absolutely true, both groups are passionate about their values. So, you see, it is absurd to say that America no longer has values.

But here is the concern. Which values are right? Values given to us by our Creator make the most sense. We can learn those values from God’s Word, and we can see His Word lived out perfectly in one man, Jesus. Trust and follow Him, and He’ll empower you to live out Godly values.
