"America in the Web of Sin"

"America in the Web of Sin"
a poem by Scott Appleton
A million times I have fallen
Into sin's ocean depths I have plunged.
I have strayed from the Savior
Though my sins he'd expunged.

The web of sin
Has drawn America in.

Surrounded by defeat
I once despaired of the Life I'd been given.
Every time I strayed
My Savior reminded me I was forgiven.

The web of sin
Has drawn America in.

When I rose from that ocean
A warrior honed by God's grace
I looked around
And knew the favor of God's face.

Yet the web of sin
Had drawn America in

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
