Will History Repeat Itself?

Does History have To Repeat Itself?
Or Can We Change It?

The collapse of nations and empires has held an interest for me all the way back to my teenage years. I remember talking to dad about the civilizations that have disappeared from the earth. Like the Egyptians, the Romans, the Greeks, Babylonians, to name a few. My question at that time was how long could we expect the US to last when other nations have failed to survive.

Over the years I have read different opinions why the different civilizations failed. Some of these writers were right with at least part of their reasons. I was looking for a simple condensed three point statement why the powerful nations failed.

Little did I think when talking to my dad all those years ago that I would live to see the day when America (Canada Included) would meet all the requirements for failure, as shown to us by past civilizations.

Two words describe the reason for the downfall of once powerful nations.

>>>>>>>>>>"MORAL CORRUPTION<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Moral corruption is a monster with many heads and any nations that allow this monster to mature will become its victim.

History does not have to show that North America followed the same road as the other nations in the past did.

Abraham asked the Lord (Gen. 18:16-33) if He would spare Sodom if there were ten righteous people. God said He would spare the city even for ten righteous people. "God does hear the prayers of a righteous man". "Our destiny can be chosen".

The moral life of any people rises or falls with the vitality or decay of its religious life. John Sutherland Bonnell
