Speaking of God's Resulting Judgment

Mike Licona wrote:
While the U.S. becomes more secular, let's not speak of God's resulting judgment as some will be inclined. There is nothing in the Bible that speaks of God responding in such a manner. Moreover, the U.S. is not ancient Israel, which was a theocracy. It was never designed to be.
What Bible is Licona reading? Does his Bible have Romans 1, where God describes the judgments brought on the nations? Does his Bible at least have the book of Jonah? Does Mike Licona think that Ninevah was part of an ancient theocracy? Surely neither the Roman empire nor Ninevah was a theocracy in the sense that the Moses regime was. Nevertheless, God sends judgment on ungodly nations.

Psalm 82:8
Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

May God have mercy on a nation that is drifting from Him.
