    Not that I know of. Are there similarities?

    I'm sure someone has. I haven't heard a message like that.

    I have heard many based upon warnings such as Ezekial 16:49,50

    "Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good."

    Also Jeremiah etc..

    "Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? Jer 9:9

    DaniH You're probably fine.

    The above are just samples, of course, and more or less well researched, but yes, certain churches and ministries very much teach those parallels, based upon a supposed covenant the Puritans made when they arrived here.

    Of course the actual history of the U.S. is way more complex than that, and whatever the Puritans agreed upon and ratified amongst themselves ended up being superseded by the Bill of Rights and the Constitution anyway (whereas the 10 Commandments were in fact Israel's "Constitution" and the other laws were their actual legal codex upon which their entire society was built), but I guess it all depends on how you look at history and what you choose to pull out of it to teach as "truth".

    I've more heard comparisons between the USA and Sodom and Gammora, or the world just before the flood.

    I can make Scripture say anything I want it to say if it supports my agenda...

    And look out if anyone tries to help another interpret it properly.
