The U.S. government broke more than 98 percent of all the hundreds of treaties - signed and ratified by Congress - made with the sovereign First Nations of North America.My supposition, based upon the biblical concept of covenant, is that the United States of America may very well be held to give an accounting for her broken treaties with the First Nations people of North America. Few will disagree that America is struggling spiritually. I doubt that without the aid of the Holy Spirit it would ever enter our own thinking to make the connection between America's broken covenants with Native American sovereign nations and our current spiritual and moral decline. Perhaps it's time to consider what the Spirit of the Lord may be saying to the Church in America today about the sins her forefathers committed in breaking hundreds of treaties with the Gibeonites of this land.
