THE TRUTH ABOUT COLUMBUS
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
Introduction: This verse refers to ancient Israel, but is also a truism for all nations which serve the Lord. America’s blessings have been the result of God’s favor on a nation which acknowledged Him. As reverence for God wanes, blessings do, also. America needs to take a fresh look at herself and be reminded who she really is.
This message will be an attempt to pinpoint the obvious and indisputable dealings of God in the discovery of our land. My intention is not to exonerate Columbus. Nor is my purpose to evoke pride or egotistical nationalism among us. My desire is to exalt God, to convince us He made America possible. Did God have a special plan for America? If so, we should be able to find evidence of His workings at every turn of our history, including the beginning. And for us, the beginning is Columbus.
