Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
Gayle…I am very glad to hear the article helped you. And also glad to hear of the reconciliation with your son. That is encouraging. Thank you for your comment.
On balance there has never been a more benevolent imperium than America. American scientists have developed vaccines that have saved millions lives throughout the world. American genetic planet research created the Green Revolution that saved millions of lives. When earthquakes and tsunamis devastate remote Pacific lands American Naval ships are first on the scene to offer humanitarian aid. Twice in the twentieth century America troops entered Europe to turn back tyrannies that sought to enslave and deny basic human freedoms. After World War II American aid rebuilt Europe into a bulwark against Soviet expansion. In Japan America imposed changes that have helped create an ally and kept the peace in that region. I could go on.
History also records the warts of the English speaking nations–and there plenty of them from the past and the present. But when the summing up of history comes it will be found to have been the most productive combine of power to have been wielded in the history of the world. The world will lament the day these twin nations no longer hold the same influence in the world they do today.
