An organization called Citizens Against Government Waste once aired a thought-provoking television commercial with a futuristic theme. The year is 2030 A.D. The setting is a seminar in Beijing, China, with a speaker and a large crowd. The speaker begins, 


Why do great nations fall? The Ancient Greeks, the Roman Empire, the British Empire, and the United States of America. They all make the same mistakes, turning their back on the principles that made them great. 


Whatever the reasons for the precipitous fall of powerful regimes in human history, one thing is true: No nation or empire lasts forever. Galatians 6:7 warns, “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.”
