2nd Chronicles 7:14 – Abuse and Misuse

NASB  2 Chronicles 7:14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

NKJ  2 Chronicles 7:14 “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

NLT  2 Chronicles 7:14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.

NRS  2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

All of them say the same thing and not one of them mention the United States of America.

While at a Gospel Sing a while ago, I was enjoying the Inspirations until they started preaching that the USA is a Christian nation because, you know, Christians are still here. Now, by that logic, the entire world is Christian, or everyone in all the other countries are hellbound sinners with not a Christian among them.

I mean, have they looked at this country yet?

And then, as a cure-all, the singer/preacher/pontificator brought up the above verse.

Tell me, where does it say that Americans are the People of God? Did we have a fit with this in the 19th century with British-Israelism? Or is God’s name ‘The United States of America?’

A note should have been sent to the man on the platform, and everyone else who uses this verse – read the restrictions about whom God hears and to whom those promises are delivered.
