In response to Michael Imhof’s letter to the editor, “U.S. lost its spirit” on Saturday, our nation has been gradually turning away from the Lord for years and years. It was when abortion was legalized that the spirit of death, where life has no meaning, had begun to control our national mentality.

The people of our nation have probably “fallen” too far away from the Lord to expect any turn-about at this time. Matthew, chapter 24 in the Bible pretty much describes our present day situation; even many churches are embracing sinful lifestyles, but our hope is in Matthew: 24:22, King James inspired version “these days shall be shortened.”

Life does have meaning, but only in and through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
