VIDEO: Ben Carson on America: ‘As We Abandon God, You Can See That We’re Spiraling Downward’

Famed neurosurgeon and presidential candidate Ben Carson has been quite outspoken about the need for America’s government to return to fostering good, ethical beliefs. Now, in a report from CNS News, Dr. Carson has claimed that our nation’s departure from God has put us on a path to ruin.


America’s Judeo-Christian values are what made this country exceptional in such a short period of time, said Dr. Ben Carson, who added that the biggest problem today, however, is that America has “abandoned God,” which is causing the United States to rapidly decline.

After speaking at the Stillwater Christian School in Kalipsell, Mont., last March, the host asked Dr. Carson, “Obviously, we have a lot of issues in the country today, from the economy, immigration, education, health care you touched on, foreign policy. So, the question is what do you think is the biggest issue we face today?”

Dr. Carson, a neurosurgeon and best selling author, said, “I think the biggest issue is that we have abandoned God. We need to bring spirituality back to this country.”

“It was our Judeo-Christian values that allowed this to be an exceptional country,” said Dr. Carson.  “It allowed us to move forward so incredibly quickly. And as we abandon God, you can see we’re spiraling downward just as quickly.”

Whether one is Christian or not, the fact remains that our nation was founded on certain Judeo-Christian beliefs. Work hard, do what’s right, always strive to be better, more compassionate. These are terrific beliefs and whether one calls God a different name or no name at all, a return to these principles is the surest way back to American greatness.
