American Pastors Network President Sam Rohrer Encourages ‘God’s Plan for a Blessed Nation’

The theme of returning America to God’s favor was central throughout the election, leading up to the inauguration and in the first month of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Many Christians felt the country had been given a reprieve with the surprising turn of events in 2016, and now, are vigilant in how they move forward within that small window.

This is a topic that has been explored by the American Pastors Network and through its “Stand in the Gap” radio ministry, which has the goal to provide pastors, Christians leaders and engaged believers the tools to analyze news and events from a biblical and constitutional worldview.

APN president Sam Rohrer has been speaking to listeners about “God’s Plan for a Blessed Nation” and a roadmap to build a government of integrity.

“The process for renewal of our country won’t be easy, but it does begin with an understanding of who we are as a nation and who God is,” Rohrer said. “And this process must be led on our knees in prayer, as we humble ourselves before God and seek His blessing. It also involves a commitment by the pastors in the pulpits of America to once again preach the whole counsel of God and reteach our people that the biblical principles that made America great are the same principles that can restore and heal our nation—one nation under God.”

Rohrer added that the following steps are necessary to submit to the wisdom of God’s plan for the nation:

  1. Understand the Nature and Role of God: That God is sovereign, He is the Creator and Sustainer of life, the Supreme Authority, and God delegated men as His Creation overseer.
  2. Understand the Nature of Man: That man is born a sinner, depraved and doesn’t naturally do right.
  3. Understand the Purpose for Government: To enact justice, to punish evil and praise good.
  4. Understand the Purpose for Law: To establish the framework for right actions and to enact justice, as the law was made for the lawbreaker.
  5. Understand the Natural Tendency of Government: That government tends to consolidate control and take the place of “God.”
  6. Understand the Components of Biblical Justice: 1) Truth is the absolute standard; 2) Mercy’s goal is restoration; and 3) Equity is judgment imparted without partiality.
  7. Understand the Need for Maintaining a Republic: It requires responsible citizens and responsible government leaders.
  8. Understand the Need to Build Safeguards: Man is naturally selfish, and God initiated separation of powers.
  9. Understand the Need to Biblically Educate: Parents must train their children in God’s ways and teach the history of God’s blessings.
  10. Understand the Need for Prayer for God’s Help in Building a Nation: As Psalm 127:1 says, “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain” (NIV).
