Because the gospel is not being preached as it ought to be our country is in a state of economic and moral collapse (See THE ECONOMIC CRISIS on www.preach-the-gospel.org.). We have substituted another gospel (a 'plan of salvation') for the true gospel (See A LITTLE LEAVEN on www.preach-the-gospel.org). To rescue our nation we need to preach the gospel according to the scriptures (1 Cor 15.1-4) to others in person with our mouths (Eph 6.19 & Col 4.3) and teach them that believe how to preach it.
The 'plan of salvation can only be preached from behind a pulpit (See PLAN OF SALVATION on www.preach-the-gospel.org.). This takes bible school or seminary and has created professional clergy that are preaching this false gospel and hindering the furtherance of the the true gospel. But Christ has ordained us to preach the gospel in the world (Mk 16.15 & Jn 15.16) not present a 'plan of salvation' in a building. The gospel according to the scriptures (1 Cor 15.1-4) is simple to preach to another. After asking them if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.) tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)."
Preaching the gospel means to tell others the good news in person with our mouth (Eph 6.19 & Col 4.3) not present a 'plan of salvation' from behind a pulpit week after week to the same group of people. Today's mega-churches try to justify preaching the gospel in the world as Christ commands (Mk 16.15) by sending out their 'plan of salvation' over the air waves via satellite, radio, tv and internet but it falls on deaf ears. They send missionaries over sea and land and they make one proselyte, because their gospel can't be duplicated, two fold the child of the devil as themselves (Mt 23.15 & Gal 1.8-9). We have swallowed the lie that only people who finish seminary qualify to preach the gospel (See THE BIG LIE and SEMINARY OR CEMETARY? on www.preach-the-gospel.org.). Meanwhile the faithful are silent after they depart the church doors (See TIGHT-LIPPED CHRISTIANS on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).
Christ's command to every believer is - "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." The gospel is supposed to be preached in the world, not a 'plan of salvation' from inside a building to the same crowd each week. We are not saved through a prayer as their 'plan of salvation' teaches (See PRAYER OF SALVATION on www.preach-the-gospel.org). We were saved when we believed on Christ after somebody preached the gospel to us in person with their mouth (Jn 6.47, Acts 16.31, Rom 1.16 & 10.14, 1 Cor 1.21 & 4.15, 2 Cor 11.3, Eph 6.19 and Col 4.3).
To bring our nation out of the moral and economic crisis in which it lies we must preach the gospel as we go (Mk 16.15) and teach them that believe how to preach it (See TEACH THEM and TURN THE WORLD RIGHT SIDE UP on www.preach-the-gospel.org). Let's not be fooled by another gospel.
Please read a one-page paper on www.preach-the-gospel.org each day. They will feed you with knowledge and understanding that will encourage and inspire you to preach the gospel and to teach them that believe to do the same (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20).
