In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship." "The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage."
I do not think my country (Canada) is in any better shape. I never thought I would live to see the fall of the west. I think our redemption draweth nigh...
Wise words!! The govaments have proved not to work down the history.The world... ned a new system in harmony with God and his creation. We need to create a system who are in harmony with, God, human needs and nature.

Yup....It feels like our time is almost up. I suspect He's waiting for the 5 unwise virgin's lamps to go out. When the money dries up, so will their faith be shaken and they will abandon God.I pray for all true sons and daughters everywhere that our faith will remain. It is His right to be able to TEST US.
