"God who gave us life gave us liberty.” “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.”

— Thomas Jefferson

“If the God of life does not respond to this culture of death with judgment, God is not God. If God does not honor the blood of the hundreds of millions of innocent victims then the God of the Bible, the God of Israel, the God of orphans and widows, the Defender of the defenseless, is a man-made myth, a fairy tale.”

— Peter Kreeft - (1937 -  ) Professor of Philosophy and Author

And you shall say to them, 'This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the LORD their God, and did not accept discipline; truth has perished; it is cut off from their lips.”

— Jeremiah 7:26-28 RSV

“In times of imminent danger to the country, every true patriot should occupy the post in which he can render them the most effectually.”

— George Washington (1732-1799) Father of the Country, 1st President of the United States


"How prone all human institutions have been to decay; how subject the best-formed and most wisely organized governments have been to lose their check and totally dissolve; how difficult it has been for mankind, in all ages and countries, to preserve their dearest rights and best privileges, impelled as it were by an irresistible fate of despotism."

— James Madison (1751-1836) Father of the Constitution, 4th President of the United States


"I do not think that anyone can study the history of this nation of ours without becoming convinced that divine providence has played a part in it. I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position and strength for some great purpose!”

— Harry S. Truman (1884-1972, 33rd President of the United States


"Divine Providence has played a great part in our history. I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position of power and strength for some great purpose. It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world. It is given to defend the spiritual values—the moral code—against the vast forces of evil that seek to destroy them.”

— Harry S. Truman (1884-1972, 33rd President of the United States

"We have men of science, too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants... If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner."

— Omar Bradley (1893–1981) General WWII


“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

— Romans 1:17-32  RSV


“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N Bellah (1927-  ) American sociologist, professor and author (The Broken Covenant)


As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth--that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage and peace of mind. All the history of America bears witness to this truth. Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built this Republic.

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about.” — Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) 28th President ot the United States

— Robert V. Young, Jr. (1947- -) Professor, Author, and Editor of the quarterly Modern Age


“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours. Through intense suffering our country has now achieved a spiritual development of such intensity that the Western system in its present state of spiritual exhaustion does not look attractive. Even those characteristics of your life which I have just mentioned are extremely saddening.”

— Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) Russian novelist & historian, spent years in a Soviet Labor Camp for criticizing Joseph Stalin (talk at Harvard, 1978)

“Let me control the textbooks, and I will control the state.”

— Adolph Hitler (1889-1945) Founder of the Nazi Party, German leader responsible for WWII


“God was pitched out of forced schooling on his ear after WWII. This wasn’t because of any constitutional proscription  - There was none that anyone had been able to find in over a century and a half – but because the political state and corporate economy considered the Western spiritual tradition too dangerous a competitor. And it is.”

— John Taylor Gatto (1935-) Retired teacher and author on education


“We need to learn history to preserve the lessons that they [founding Fathers] had already learned, so that we don’t make the same mistake.

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.”

— Deuteronomy 5:7-12  RSV


"The issues which today confront the nation are clearly defined and so fundamental as to directly involve the very survival of the Republic. Are we going to preserve the religious base to our origin, our growth and our progress, or yield to the devious assaults of atheistic or other anti-religious forces? Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom? ... Are we going to permit a continuing decline in public and private morality or re-establish high ethical standards as the means of regaining a diminishing faith in the integrity of our public and private institutions?... In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are now heading with such certainty. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments."

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, II & Korean War

“The fundamental basis of this nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teaching we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul.”

— Harry S. Truman (1884-1972), 33rd President of the United States


“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

— Henry L. Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, editor & satirist

“God…my self in the Bronx always says that God has a funny sense of humor. ..He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil.”

— Father Malachi Martin (1921-1999) Exorcist Priest, Theologian &  Author, Radio Interview


“I was stretched every which way but loose …"I was stretched by Mel Gibson. I was stretched by the Guy Upstairs and also I was stretched by the guy downstairs. What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production. ...


“I had all these computers and synthesizers in my studio and the hard drives would go down and the digital picture that lives on the computer with the music would just freeze on his [Satan's] face [Movie The Passion of the Christ]. Then the volume would go to ten and it would happen all the time. The first time it happened, it scared me …Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him.


There was one day when I had been on the movie for about four months when it really became bad that day and a lot of things that were causing doubt in me and I had had enough. The computers froze for about the tenth time that day and it was about nine o'clock at night and so I got really mad, and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, 'Let's go out into the parking lot and let's go.' It was a sea change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion. I had booted everything down and saved it and I was walking down the stairs and I was verbalizing and saying to Satan, 'Manifest yourself right now.' ... He didn't manifest himself, but I wished he would have. It changed for me after that.”

— John Debeny (1956- ) Award-winning Film Composer, Movie Producer of “The Passion of the Christ”

— Paul Johnson (1928- ), Journalist, historian, speechwriter & author


“There is a battle in our society, a battle in the western world; it’s been lost in the rest of the Western world, at least in Western Europe. The battle ground for this is the United States of America. Will we be governered by, in our own lives, Judaeo Christian values or secular values.”

— Dennis  Prager (1948- ) Author, columnist & host of a nationally syndicated radio show


“Socialism is where decent, but ignorant people evolve to automatically. Is the default position. In other words, people left to themselves, without input of wisdom, end up arriving at the conclusion that socialism makes a lot of sense.  … Socialism is only defeated by a constant injection of religo moral energy. Only the Judeo–Christian tradition combats socialism. If you block yourself off from any kind of authentic input of wisdom, little by little socialism begins to make more and more sense.”

— Rabbi Daniel Lapin  (1950-   ) Orthodox Rabbi, talk show host and author

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“The Founding Fathers expressed in words for all to read the ideal of Government based upon the dignity of the individual. That ideal previously had existed only in the hearts and minds of men. They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great. They, recognizing God as the author of individual fights, declared that the purpose of Government is to secure those rights.

To you and to me this ideal of Government is a self-evident truth. But in many lands the State claims to be the author of human rights. The tragedy of that claim runs through all history and, indeed, dominates our own times. If the State gives rights, it can—and inevitably will—take away those rights.

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first—the most basic—expression of Americanism. Thus the Founding Fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be....Veterans realize, perhaps more clearly than others, the prior place that Almighty God holds in our national life. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people....

The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a  Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights.”

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“We have many men of science; too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. Man is blindly stumbling through a spiritual darkness while toying with the precarious secrets of life and death. The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.”

— Omar Bradley (1893–1981) General WWII

— C.S. Lewis (1898 -1963) Irish writer, scholar & Christian apologetic


"The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens.

— Peter Marshall (1902–1949) Pastor and Chaplain of the United States Senate


 “The advent of the "All Volunteer Force" in the 1970s increased the proportion of practicing Christians among both officers and enlisted. Since 9/11, the "foxhole factor" has come into play: The number of atheists is inversely proportional to that of bullets flying. In short, there have been the very opposite of popular pressures for secularization.”

— Angelo M. Codevilla (1943-  ) Former U.S. Navy officer, Professor, and Author

"The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they're getting weak.

There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope."

— Stefan Wyszyński (1901-1981) Polish prelate of the Roman Catholic Church


 "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to fear."

— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) Roman Philosopher, Lawyer, Statesman and constitutionalist

“God chastises those he loves and all through history whether you want to go back to the Old Testament or New Testament God has always punished all nations when they go against God.

When ever mankind drifts away god, pushes them back in line. So, it isn’t a matter of saying Ok where has scriptures warned me that if my country does such and such. Well it has warned us about morality, basic charity as a society. When society differs and goes against god, we a country were supposed to be a nation under god have given over to a million abortions a year, we are accepting homosexuality as a normal life style, our country is pursing immoral act with in other nations, to where our country it self has become a godless nation. And god himself does not sit back and say oh well let them do what they want to do. God is god and god is going to insure and insist that mankind keep his attention on him one way or another. God doesn’t need 6 billion faithful people that are forced into fidelity, he wants mankind stay in faith fidelity with him by free will and choice. And, god has always through history as the scriptures records and predicts that god purifies mankind to make us worthy to accept us him and receive him as a god.”

— Father Andrew Wingate, Founder of “Oblates of St. Therese”, Radio Interview January 8, 2003


“I stand before you today heart broken, I know history and I love this country …God blessed this country and it took sacrifice because even though they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that’s an inheritance. And if you are not willing to fight for you inheritance, even when you leave your children, if they won’t fight for it, they don’t keep it. Mean greedy evil people will take it away.


So many of the things we are doing right now as a country are things that lead to loss of a country. I leave you with this thought and challenge any historian, no mater who you are where you are. You show me a country that ever met its demise while as a nation it was honoring the one true God. You won’t find it. Let’s keep this country alive.”

"In essence I find that the foundation of modern conservatism is driven by a clinging to God in fear of the world, whereas the foundation of modern liberalism is a clinging to the world in fear of God; albeit, the true foundation should be one's clinging to God in fear of God.”

― Chriss Jami (Christopher James Gilbert) Poet, essayist, and philosopher


“The founders of the United States of America … founded it on the principles ancient convent between the Hebrews and God. The only reason that we fear that right now we stare down into the abyss of doom. The only reason that deep in our hearts we question whether the United States of American will indeed continue, and will it indeed continue as the nation we know and love. The only reason that deep in our hearts we worry for its future is because deep in our hearts we know that this country had abandoned the faith of Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob. This county has stepped out from beneath that convent, that guaranteed durability. Not just ancient Israel but all those who followed in those paths.”

"There is an old Christian hymn that says this is my father’s world and I am absolute convinced of that. We need to be more sensitive to the movement of God in our history because it gives us reason for optimism. You know, a lot of times we feel very pessimistic. But when we see how God has already moved in the past, why would we fear for the future?"

— Chaplin Barry Black – ( 1948-)  62nd Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (from the Movie Monumental)


“This is a new nation when we think about history and world history. And this country was allowed to emerge adn become what it is because of the grace of God. And those who founded this nation understood that. An that’s why—you know, America hasn’t been destroyed like other nations that have fallen because because there are still people here who call on  the name of the lord.”

— Alvida King (1951-) Christian Minister and Author (from the Movie Monumental)


"After World War II...we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good...the list is almost endless ... We have confused liberty with license - and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction. ... What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. ... I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established - principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible.”

— Billy Graham (1918 - Christian Evangelist and Minister


"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure....

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


"We can't have it both ways. We can't expect God to protect us in a crisis and just leave Him over there on the shelf in our day-to-day living. I wonder if sometimes He isn't waiting for us to wake up, He isn't maybe running out of patience."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“Practically every social institution is in chaos; moral relativism and situational ethics pervade every arena of public life. Any attempts to invoke the authority of Scripture or lessons of history elicits a cry of, ‘Don’t try to push your view of right and wrong on me; I have my own morality!’ We have reached a point of moral deterioration about which the prophets of Israel proclaimed, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isaiah 5:20-23)

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer

“When a nation establishes its precepts and its standards upon the standards of the Bible, you see a civilization rise. This is now the fruit of what generations before have given to us. And that is why we need to understand, we have lived off the wealth of greatness, greatness of the founders who understood where all truth begins. Truth is what this nation was built upon, the truth of the Bible. And that’s why going forward if we are to be blessed, we need to recognize, what has worked in the past. Which is recognizing the sovereign hand of a holy God and the precepts and the truths of his word. That is what we need to establish today. We can’t just live off the past we have to renew those truths for the next generation.”

― Michele Bachmann – (1956) Member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota


(If we condone or encourage homosexual behavior.) “We risk incurring God’s judgment by legitimizing homosexuality, permitting gay marriage, and misusing science for procreation. If we legalize homosexual marriage in America, we will go ‘on the record’ as disregarding God’s laws and offending the laws of nature. We would do well to count the cost of such disobedience before we reap divine displeasure”

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer


"Scripture reminds us: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.' (Luke 12:4). God expects each of us—having been blessed with peace, with prosperity, with life—to dedicate ourselves unreservedly to the task at hand, to rebuild our moral and spiritual foundation which was built upon the eternal truth of God. That foundation made America great. It birthed our nation more than two centuries ago. If we pay the price, we will lead our nation into rebirth and gloriously usher into the ‘Next American Century.'! …


If we continue our destructive path, our time for restoring America is very short indeed. … Over the past fifty years, the United States of America has reversed its course from a nation where godliness prevailed to a nation that seemingly has not time for God. Our drug/sex/rock culture pervades the whole earth through television and movies, with devastating moral effects, eerily reminding us of Babylon described in Jeremiah 51:7: 'She made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.' …


Most Americans have forsaken the principles and morals standards that come from God though His inspired word, the Bible; they have traded absolute truth for a humanistic lie. As a result, the nation is reaping the consequences of that flow from our unconfessed sin. As in Babylon, America is having a massive drinking party to the gods of humanism, secularism, materialism, and atheism.


Listen to this biblical warning given to ancient Israel as they stood poised to enter the Promised Land. …"


“When you have eaten your fill, bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to disobey him. For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large, and your silver and gold have multiplied, that is the time to watch out that you don’t become proud, and forget the lord your God.”

“But if you forget about the Lord your God and worship other gods instead, and follow evil ways, you shall certainly perish, just as the Lord has caused other nations in the past to perish. That will be your fate too, if you don’t obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:10-14,19, 20)

“Like the Pharisees and Sadducees, many people today do not recognize God reaching out to them, nor do they discover the truth of God’s Word and the simple solutions needed to turn out situation around. Most tragically, they do not foresee their own inevitable destruction because they have rejected God’s personal warning. … Today, America has only two choices: continue its ungodly path to destruction, or respond to God’s call for repentance. … He will restore our nation even at this late hour.

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer

— Anatole France (1844-1924) French Poet, Journalist, and Novelist


"Our laws and customs were constructed to reflect the Ten Commandments, not only to provide for a good life after death, but for a good life on earth. Christians believe Christs' order to Love thy God with all thy heart, thy whole soul, thy whole mind and with all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself. We try to live by that Golden Rule in our public and private life. Unfortunately, the Commandments and the Golden Rule are being forgotten by our society; to achieve our rebirth, we must recall them. Only than we can expect to survive."

“God has a funny sense of humor. He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [a country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil.”

— Father Malachi Martin (Author, Priest and Theologian)


“God has always done judgements. … Ninety-nine percent of the time [He has] done judgements that you will find in the Old Testament. That is He has used nations with their weapons of destruction that have had at that point in time to do His judgements. … He will use existing nations with their arsenal of weapons to do His judgements.”

— Larry Massa (Biblical Teacher, Researcher and Author)

“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N. Bellah (Sociologist, Professor and Author)

Quotes - The Author

“If the God of life does not respond to this culture of death with judgment, God is not God. If God does not honor the blood of the hundreds of millions of innocent victims then the God of the Bible, the God of Israel, the God of orphans and widows, the Defender of the defenseless, is a man-made myth, a fairy tale.”

— Peter Kreeft - (1937 -  ) Professor of Philosophy and Author

It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world. It is given to defend the spiritual values—the moral code—against the vast forces of evil that seek to destroy them.”

"We have men of science, too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. The world has achieved brilliance without conscience.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

— Robert N Bellah (1927-  ) American sociologist, professor and author (The Broken Covenant)


As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth--that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage and peace of mind. All the history of America bears witness to this truth. Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built this Republic.

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours.

Even those characteristics of your life which I have just mentioned are extremely saddening.”

“God was pitched out of forced schooling on his ear after WWII. This wasn’t because of any constitutional proscription  - There was none that anyone had been able to find in over a century and a half – but because the political state and corporate economy considered the Western spiritual tradition too dangerous a competitor. And it is.”

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.”

— Deuteronomy 5:7-12  RSV


"The issues which today confront the nation are clearly defined and so fundamental as to directly involve the very survival of the Republic. Are we going to preserve the religious base to our origin, our growth and our progress, or yield to the devious assaults of atheistic or other anti-religious forces? Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom? ... Are we going to permit a continuing decline in public and private morality or re-establish high ethical standards as the means of regaining a diminishing faith in the integrity of our public and private institutions?... In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are now heading with such certainty. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments."

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, II & Korean War

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.

And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

— Henry L. Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, editor & satirist

What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production. ...


“I had all these computers and synthesizers in my studio and the hard drives would go down and the digital picture that lives on the computer with the music would just freeze on his [Satan's] face [Movie The Passion of the Christ]. Then the volume would go to ten and it would happen all the time. The first time it happened, it scared me …Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him.


There was one day when I had been on the movie for about four months when it really became bad that day and a lot of things that were causing doubt in me and I had had enough. The computers froze for about the tenth time that day and it was about nine o'clock at night and so I got really mad, and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, 'Let's go out into the parking lot and let's go.' It was a sea change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion. I had booted everything down and saved it and I was walking down the stairs and I was verbalizing and saying to Satan, 'Manifest yourself right now.' ... He didn't manifest himself, but I wished he would have. It changed for me after that.”

“There is a battle in our society, a battle in the western world; it’s been lost in the rest of the Western world, at least in Western Europe. The battle ground for this is the United States of America. Will we be governered by, in our own lives, Judaeo Christian values or secular values.”

“Socialism is where decent, but ignorant people evolve to automatically. Is the default position. In other words, people left to themselves, without input of wisdom, end up arriving at the conclusion that socialism makes a lot of sense.  … Socialism is only defeated by a constant injection of religo moral energy. Only the Judeo–Christian tradition combats socialism. If you block yourself off from any kind of authentic input of wisdom, little by little socialism begins to make more and more sense.”

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“The Founding Fathers expressed in words for all to read the ideal of Government based upon the dignity of the individual. That ideal previously had existed only in the hearts and minds of men. They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great. They, recognizing God as the author of individual fights, declared that the purpose of Government is to secure those rights.

To you and to me this ideal of Government is a self-evident truth. But in many lands the State claims to be the author of human rights. The tragedy of that claim runs through all history and, indeed, dominates our own times. If the State gives rights, it can—and inevitably will—take away those rights.

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first—the most basic—expression of Americanism. Thus the Founding Fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be....Veterans realize, perhaps more clearly than others, the prior place that Almighty God holds in our national life. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people....

The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a  Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights.”

Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.”

In short, there have been the very opposite of popular pressures for secularization.”

"The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they're getting weak.

There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope."

 "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to fear."

— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) Roman Philosopher, Lawyer, Statesman and constitutionalist

“God chastises those he loves and all through history whether you want to go back to the Old Testament or New Testament God has always punished all nations when they go against God.

When ever mankind drifts away god, pushes them back in line. So, it isn’t a matter of saying Ok where has scriptures warned me that if my country does such and such. Well it has warned us about morality, basic charity as a society. When society differs and goes against god, we a country were supposed to be a nation under god have given over to a million abortions a year, we are accepting homosexuality as a normal life style, our country is pursing immoral act with in other nations, to where our country it self has become a godless nation. And god himself does not sit back and say oh well let them do what they want to do. God is god and god is going to insure and insist that mankind keep his attention on him one way or another. God doesn’t need 6 billion faithful people that are forced into fidelity, he wants mankind stay in faith fidelity with him by free will and choice. And, god has always through history as the scriptures records and predicts that god purifies mankind to make us worthy to accept us him and receive him as a god.”

“I stand before you today heart broken, I know history and I love this country …God blessed this country and it took sacrifice because even though they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that’s an inheritance. And if you are not willing to fight for you inheritance, even when you leave your children, if they won’t fight for it, they don’t keep it. Mean greedy evil people will take it away.


So many of the things we are doing right now as a country are things that lead to loss of a country. I leave you with this thought and challenge any historian, no mater who you are where you are. You show me a country that ever met its demise while as a nation it was honoring the one true God. You won’t find it. Let’s keep this country alive.”

“The founders of the United States of America … founded it on the principles ancient convent between the Hebrews and God. The only reason that we fear that right now we stare down into the abyss of doom. The only reason that deep in our hearts we question whether the United States of American will indeed continue, and will it indeed continue as the nation we know and love. The only reason that deep in our hearts we worry for its future is because deep in our hearts we know that this country had abandoned the faith of Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob. This county has stepped out from beneath that convent, that guaranteed durability. Not just ancient Israel but all those who followed in those paths.”

"There is an old Christian hymn that says this is my father’s world and I am absolute convinced of that. We need to be more sensitive to the movement of God in our history because it gives us reason for optimism. You know, a lot of times we feel very pessimistic. But when we see how God has already moved in the past, why would we fear for the future?"

— Chaplin Barry Black – ( 1948-)  62nd Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (from the Movie Monumental)


“This is a new nation when we think about history and world history. And this country was allowed to emerge adn become what it is because of the grace of God. And those who founded this nation understood that. An that’s why—you know, America hasn’t been destroyed like other nations that have fallen because because there are still people here who call on  the name of the lord.”

— Alvida King (1951-) Christian Minister and Author (from the Movie Monumental)


"After World War II...we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good...the list is almost endless ... We have confused liberty with license - and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction. ... What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. ... I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established - principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible.”

— Billy Graham (1918 - Christian Evangelist and Minister


"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure....

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“Practically every social institution is in chaos; moral relativism and situational ethics pervade every arena of public life. Any attempts to invoke the authority of Scripture or lessons of history elicits a cry of, ‘Don’t try to push your view of right and wrong on me; I have my own morality!’ We have reached a point of moral deterioration about which the prophets of Israel proclaimed, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isaiah 5:20-23)

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer

“When a nation establishes its precepts and its standards upon the standards of the Bible, you see a civilization rise. This is now the fruit of what generations before have given to us. And that is why we need to understand, we have lived off the wealth of greatness, greatness of the founders who understood where all truth begins. Truth is what this nation was built upon, the truth of the Bible. And that’s why going forward if we are to be blessed, we need to recognize, what has worked in the past. Which is recognizing the sovereign hand of a holy God and the precepts and the truths of his word. That is what we need to establish today. We can’t just live off the past we have to renew those truths for the next generation.”

― Michele Bachmann – (1956) Member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota


(If we condone or encourage homosexual behavior.) “We risk incurring God’s judgment by legitimizing homosexuality, permitting gay marriage, and misusing science for procreation. If we legalize homosexual marriage in America, we will go ‘on the record’ as disregarding God’s laws and offending the laws of nature. We would do well to count the cost of such disobedience before we reap divine displeasure”

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer


"Scripture reminds us: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.' (Luke 12:4). God expects each of us—having been blessed with peace, with prosperity, with life—to dedicate ourselves unreservedly to the task at hand, to rebuild our moral and spiritual foundation which was built upon the eternal truth of God. That foundation made America great. It birthed our nation more than two centuries ago. If we pay the price, we will lead our nation into rebirth and gloriously usher into the ‘Next American Century.'! …


If we continue our destructive path, our time for restoring America is very short indeed. … Over the past fifty years, the United States of America has reversed its course from a nation where godliness prevailed to a nation that seemingly has not time for God. Our drug/sex/rock culture pervades the whole earth through television and movies, with devastating moral effects, eerily reminding us of Babylon described in Jeremiah 51:7: 'She made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.' …


Most Americans have forsaken the principles and morals standards that come from God though His inspired word, the Bible; they have traded absolute truth for a humanistic lie. As a result, the nation is reaping the consequences of that flow from our unconfessed sin. As in Babylon, America is having a massive drinking party to the gods of humanism, secularism, materialism, and atheism.


Listen to this biblical warning given to ancient Israel as they stood poised to enter the Promised Land. …"


“When you have eaten your fill, bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to disobey him. For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large, and your silver and gold have multiplied, that is the time to watch out that you don’t become proud, and forget the lord your God.”

“But if you forget about the Lord your God and worship other gods instead, and follow evil ways, you shall certainly perish, just as the Lord has caused other nations in the past to perish. That will be your fate too, if you don’t obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:10-14,19, 20)

“Like the Pharisees and Sadducees, many people today do not recognize God reaching out to them, nor do they discover the truth of God’s Word and the simple solutions needed to turn out situation around. Most tragically, they do not foresee their own inevitable destruction because they have rejected God’s personal warning. … Today, America has only two choices: continue its ungodly path to destruction, or respond to God’s call for repentance. … He will restore our nation even at this late hour.

— Anatole France (1844-1924) French Poet, Journalist, and Novelist


"Our laws and customs were constructed to reflect the Ten Commandments, not only to provide for a good life after death, but for a good life on earth. Christians believe Christs' order to Love thy God with all thy heart, thy whole soul, thy whole mind and with all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself. We try to live by that Golden Rule in our public and private life. Unfortunately, the Commandments and the Golden Rule are being forgotten by our society; to achieve our rebirth, we must recall them. Only than we can expect to survive."

“God has a funny sense of humor. He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [a country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil.”

— Father Malachi Martin (Author, Priest and Theologian)


“God has always done judgements. … Ninety-nine percent of the time [He has] done judgements that you will find in the Old Testament. That is He has used nations with their weapons of destruction that have had at that point in time to do His judgements. … He will use existing nations with their arsenal of weapons to do His judgements.”

— Larry Massa (Biblical Teacher, Researcher and Author)

“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N. Bellah (Sociologist, Professor and Author)

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

— Romans 1:17-32  RSV


“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N Bellah (1927-  ) American sociologist, professor and author (The Broken Covenant)


As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth--that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage and peace of mind. All the history of America bears witness to this truth. Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built this Republic.

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours. Through intense suffering our country has now achieved a spiritual development of such intensity that the Western system in its present state of spiritual exhaustion does not look attractive. Even those characteristics of your life which I have just mentioned are extremely saddening.”

And it is.”

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.”

"The issues which today confront the nation are clearly defined and so fundamental as to directly involve the very survival of the Republic. Are we going to preserve the religious base to our origin, our growth and our progress, or yield to the devious assaults of atheistic or other anti-religious forces? Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom? ... Are we going to permit a continuing decline in public and private morality or re-establish high ethical standards as the means of regaining a diminishing faith in the integrity of our public and private institutions?... In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are now heading with such certainty. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments."

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, II & Korean War

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

— Henry L. Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, editor & satirist

“I was stretched every which way but loose …"I was stretched by Mel Gibson. I was stretched by the Guy Upstairs and also I was stretched by the guy downstairs. What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production. ...


“I had all these computers and synthesizers in my studio and the hard drives would go down and the digital picture that lives on the computer with the music would just freeze on his [Satan's] face [Movie The Passion of the Christ]. Then the volume would go to ten and it would happen all the time. The first time it happened, it scared me …Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him.


There was one day when I had been on the movie for about four months when it really became bad that day and a lot of things that were causing doubt in me and I had had enough. The computers froze for about the tenth time that day and it was about nine o'clock at night and so I got really mad, and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, 'Let's go out into the parking lot and let's go.' It was a sea change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion. I had booted everything down and saved it and I was walking down the stairs and I was verbalizing and saying to Satan, 'Manifest yourself right now.' ... He didn't manifest himself, but I wished he would have. It changed for me after that.”

“There is a battle in our society, a battle in the western world; it’s been lost in the rest of the Western world, at least in Western Europe. The battle ground for this is the United States of America. Will we be governered by, in our own lives, Judaeo Christian values or secular values.”

“Socialism is where decent, but ignorant people evolve to automatically. Is the default position. In other words, people left to themselves, without input of wisdom, end up arriving at the conclusion that socialism makes a lot of sense.  … Socialism is only defeated by a constant injection of religo moral energy. Only the Judeo–Christian tradition combats socialism. If you block yourself off from any kind of authentic input of wisdom, little by little socialism begins to make more and more sense.”

— Rabbi Daniel Lapin  (1950-   ) Orthodox Rabbi, talk show host and author

“I, in my own mind, have thought of America as a place in the divine scheme of things that was set aside as a promised land. ... I believe that God in shedding his grace on this country has always in the divine scheme of things kept an eye on our land and guided it as a promised land.”

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“The Founding Fathers expressed in words for all to read the ideal of Government based upon the dignity of the individual. That ideal previously had existed only in the hearts and minds of men. They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great. They, recognizing God as the author of individual fights, declared that the purpose of Government is to secure those rights.

To you and to me this ideal of Government is a self-evident truth. But in many lands the State claims to be the author of human rights. The tragedy of that claim runs through all history and, indeed, dominates our own times. If the State gives rights, it can—and inevitably will—take away those rights.

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first—the most basic—expression of Americanism. Thus the Founding Fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be....Veterans realize, perhaps more clearly than others, the prior place that Almighty God holds in our national life. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people....

The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a  Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights.”

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“We have many men of science; too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. Man is blindly stumbling through a spiritual darkness while toying with the precarious secrets of life and death. The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.”

"The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens.

There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope."

 "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to fear."

— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) Roman Philosopher, Lawyer, Statesman and constitutionalist

“God chastises those he loves and all through history whether you want to go back to the Old Testament or New Testament God has always punished all nations when they go against God.

When ever mankind drifts away god, pushes them back in line. So, it isn’t a matter of saying Ok where has scriptures warned me that if my country does such and such. Well it has warned us about morality, basic charity as a society. When society differs and goes against god, we a country were supposed to be a nation under god have given over to a million abortions a year, we are accepting homosexuality as a normal life style, our country is pursing immoral act with in other nations, to where our country it self has become a godless nation. And god himself does not sit back and say oh well let them do what they want to do. God is god and god is going to insure and insist that mankind keep his attention on him one way or another. God doesn’t need 6 billion faithful people that are forced into fidelity, he wants mankind stay in faith fidelity with him by free will and choice. And, god has always through history as the scriptures records and predicts that god purifies mankind to make us worthy to accept us him and receive him as a god.”

“I stand before you today heart broken, I know history and I love this country …God blessed this country and it took sacrifice because even though they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that’s an inheritance. And if you are not willing to fight for you inheritance, even when you leave your children, if they won’t fight for it, they don’t keep it. Mean greedy evil people will take it away.


So many of the things we are doing right now as a country are things that lead to loss of a country. I leave you with this thought and challenge any historian, no mater who you are where you are. You show me a country that ever met its demise while as a nation it was honoring the one true God. You won’t find it. Let’s keep this country alive.”

"In essence I find that the foundation of modern conservatism is driven by a clinging to God in fear of the world, whereas the foundation of modern liberalism is a clinging to the world in fear of God; albeit, the true foundation should be one's clinging to God in fear of God.”

“The founders of the United States of America … founded it on the principles ancient convent between the Hebrews and God. The only reason that we fear that right now we stare down into the abyss of doom. The only reason that deep in our hearts we question whether the United States of American will indeed continue, and will it indeed continue as the nation we know and love. The only reason that deep in our hearts we worry for its future is because deep in our hearts we know that this country had abandoned the faith of Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob. This county has stepped out from beneath that convent, that guaranteed durability. Not just ancient Israel but all those who followed in those paths.”

"There is an old Christian hymn that says this is my father’s world and I am absolute convinced of that. We need to be more sensitive to the movement of God in our history because it gives us reason for optimism. You know, a lot of times we feel very pessimistic. But when we see how God has already moved in the past, why would we fear for the future?"

— Chaplin Barry Black – ( 1948-)  62nd Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (from the Movie Monumental)


“This is a new nation when we think about history and world history. And this country was allowed to emerge adn become what it is because of the grace of God. And those who founded this nation understood that.

"After World War II...we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good...the list is almost endless ... We have confused liberty with license - and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction. ... What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. ... I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established - principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible.”

— Billy Graham (1918 - Christian Evangelist and Minister


"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure....

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“Practically every social institution is in chaos; moral relativism and situational ethics pervade every arena of public life. Any attempts to invoke the authority of Scripture or lessons of history elicits a cry of, ‘Don’t try to push your view of right and wrong on me; I have my own morality!’ We have reached a point of moral deterioration about which the prophets of Israel proclaimed, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isaiah 5:20-23)

“When a nation establishes its precepts and its standards upon the standards of the Bible, you see a civilization rise. This is now the fruit of what generations before have given to us. And that is why we need to understand, we have lived off the wealth of greatness, greatness of the founders who understood where all truth begins. Truth is what this nation was built upon, the truth of the Bible. And that’s why going forward if we are to be blessed, we need to recognize, what has worked in the past. Which is recognizing the sovereign hand of a holy God and the precepts and the truths of his word. That is what we need to establish today. We can’t just live off the past we have to renew those truths for the next generation.”

― Michele Bachmann – (1956) Member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota


(If we condone or encourage homosexual behavior.) “We risk incurring God’s judgment by legitimizing homosexuality, permitting gay marriage, and misusing science for procreation. If we legalize homosexual marriage in America, we will go ‘on the record’ as disregarding God’s laws and offending the laws of nature. We would do well to count the cost of such disobedience before we reap divine displeasure”

"Scripture reminds us: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.' (Luke 12:4). God expects each of us—having been blessed with peace, with prosperity, with life—to dedicate ourselves unreservedly to the task at hand, to rebuild our moral and spiritual foundation which was built upon the eternal truth of God. That foundation made America great. It birthed our nation more than two centuries ago. If we pay the price, we will lead our nation into rebirth and gloriously usher into the ‘Next American Century.'! …


If we continue our destructive path, our time for restoring America is very short indeed. … Over the past fifty years, the United States of America has reversed its course from a nation where godliness prevailed to a nation that seemingly has not time for God. Our drug/sex/rock culture pervades the whole earth through television and movies, with devastating moral effects, eerily reminding us of Babylon described in Jeremiah 51:7: 'She made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.' …


Most Americans have forsaken the principles and morals standards that come from God though His inspired word, the Bible; they have traded absolute truth for a humanistic lie. As a result, the nation is reaping the consequences of that flow from our unconfessed sin. As in Babylon, America is having a massive drinking party to the gods of humanism, secularism, materialism, and atheism.


Listen to this biblical warning given to ancient Israel as they stood poised to enter the Promised Land. …"


“When you have eaten your fill, bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to disobey him. For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large, and your silver and gold have multiplied, that is the time to watch out that you don’t become proud, and forget the lord your God.”

“But if you forget about the Lord your God and worship other gods instead, and follow evil ways, you shall certainly perish, just as the Lord has caused other nations in the past to perish. That will be your fate too, if you don’t obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:10-14,19, 20)

“Like the Pharisees and Sadducees, many people today do not recognize God reaching out to them, nor do they discover the truth of God’s Word and the simple solutions needed to turn out situation around. Most tragically, they do not foresee their own inevitable destruction because they have rejected God’s personal warning. … Today, America has only two choices: continue its ungodly path to destruction, or respond to God’s call for repentance. … He will restore our nation even at this late hour.

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer

"Our laws and customs were constructed to reflect the Ten Commandments, not only to provide for a good life after death, but for a good life on earth. Christians believe Christs' order to Love thy God with all thy heart, thy whole soul, thy whole mind and with all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself. We try to live by that Golden Rule in our public and private life. Unfortunately, the Commandments and the Golden Rule are being forgotten by our society; to achieve our rebirth, we must recall them. Only than we can expect to survive."

“God has a funny sense of humor. He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [a country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil.”

— Father Malachi Martin (Author, Priest and Theologian)


“God has always done judgements. … Ninety-nine percent of the time [He has] done judgements that you will find in the Old Testament. That is He has used nations with their weapons of destruction that have had at that point in time to do His judgements. … He will use existing nations with their arsenal of weapons to do His judgements.”

— Larry Massa (Biblical Teacher, Researcher and Author)

“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N. Bellah (Sociologist, Professor and Author)

“If the God of life does not respond to this culture of death with judgment, God is not God.

It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth--that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage and peace of mind. All the history of America bears witness to this truth. Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built this Republic.

“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours.

Even those characteristics of your life which I have just mentioned are extremely saddening.”

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.”

"The issues which today confront the nation are clearly defined and so fundamental as to directly involve the very survival of the Republic. Are we going to preserve the religious base to our origin, our growth and our progress, or yield to the devious assaults of atheistic or other anti-religious forces? Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom? ... Are we going to permit a continuing decline in public and private morality or re-establish high ethical standards as the means of regaining a diminishing faith in the integrity of our public and private institutions?... In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are now heading with such certainty. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments."

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, II & Korean War

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.

And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

— Henry L. Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, editor & satirist

“I was stretched every which way but loose …"I was stretched by Mel Gibson. I was stretched by the Guy Upstairs and also I was stretched by the guy downstairs. What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production. ...


“I had all these computers and synthesizers in my studio and the hard drives would go down and the digital picture that lives on the computer with the music would just freeze on his [Satan's] face [Movie The Passion of the Christ]. Then the volume would go to ten and it would happen all the time. The first time it happened, it scared me …Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him.


There was one day when I had been on the movie for about four months when it really became bad that day and a lot of things that were causing doubt in me and I had had enough. The computers froze for about the tenth time that day and it was about nine o'clock at night and so I got really mad, and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, 'Let's go out into the parking lot and let's go.' It was a sea change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion. I had booted everything down and saved it and I was walking down the stairs and I was verbalizing and saying to Satan, 'Manifest yourself right now.' ... He didn't manifest himself, but I wished he would have. It changed for me after that.”

In other words, people left to themselves, without input of wisdom, end up arriving at the conclusion that socialism makes a lot of sense.  … Socialism is only defeated by a constant injection of religo moral energy. Only the Judeo–Christian tradition combats socialism. If you block yourself off from any kind of authentic input of wisdom, little by little socialism begins to make more and more sense.”

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“The Founding Fathers expressed in words for all to read the ideal of Government based upon the dignity of the individual. That ideal previously had existed only in the hearts and minds of men. They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great. They, recognizing God as the author of individual fights, declared that the purpose of Government is to secure those rights.

To you and to me this ideal of Government is a self-evident truth. But in many lands the State claims to be the author of human rights. The tragedy of that claim runs through all history and, indeed, dominates our own times. If the State gives rights, it can—and inevitably will—take away those rights.

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first—the most basic—expression of Americanism. Thus the Founding Fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be....Veterans realize, perhaps more clearly than others, the prior place that Almighty God holds in our national life. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people....

The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a  Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights.”

Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.”

"The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens. The time is come—it is now—when we ought to hear about the responsibilities of our citizenship. America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's government."

— Peter Marshall (1902–1949) Pastor and Chaplain of the United States Senate


 “The advent of the "All Volunteer Force" in the 1970s increased the proportion of practicing Christians among both officers and enlisted. Since 9/11, the "foxhole factor" has come into play: The number of atheists is inversely proportional to that of bullets flying. In short, there have been the very opposite of popular pressures for secularization.”

"The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they're getting weak. But they don't lead morally and politically anymore. The world has no leadership. The United States was always the last resort and hope for all other nations. There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope."

 "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to fear."

— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) Roman Philosopher, Lawyer, Statesman and constitutionalist

“God chastises those he loves and all through history whether you want to go back to the Old Testament or New Testament God has always punished all nations when they go against God.

When ever mankind drifts away god, pushes them back in line. So, it isn’t a matter of saying Ok where has scriptures warned me that if my country does such and such. Well it has warned us about morality, basic charity as a society. When society differs and goes against god, we a country were supposed to be a nation under god have given over to a million abortions a year, we are accepting homosexuality as a normal life style, our country is pursing immoral act with in other nations, to where our country it self has become a godless nation. And god himself does not sit back and say oh well let them do what they want to do. God is god and god is going to insure and insist that mankind keep his attention on him one way or another. God doesn’t need 6 billion faithful people that are forced into fidelity, he wants mankind stay in faith fidelity with him by free will and choice. And, god has always through history as the scriptures records and predicts that god purifies mankind to make us worthy to accept us him and receive him as a god.”

“I stand before you today heart broken, I know history and I love this country …God blessed this country and it took sacrifice because even though they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that’s an inheritance. And if you are not willing to fight for you inheritance, even when you leave your children, if they won’t fight for it, they don’t keep it. Mean greedy evil people will take it away.


So many of the things we are doing right now as a country are things that lead to loss of a country. I leave you with this thought and challenge any historian, no mater who you are where you are. You show me a country that ever met its demise while as a nation it was honoring the one true God. You won’t find it. Let’s keep this country alive.”

"In essence I find that the foundation of modern conservatism is driven by a clinging to God in fear of the world, whereas the foundation of modern liberalism is a clinging to the world in fear of God; albeit, the true foundation should be one's clinging to God in fear of God.”

“The founders of the United States of America … founded it on the principles ancient convent between the Hebrews and God. The only reason that we fear that right now we stare down into the abyss of doom. The only reason that deep in our hearts we question whether the United States of American will indeed continue, and will it indeed continue as the nation we know and love. The only reason that deep in our hearts we worry for its future is because deep in our hearts we know that this country had abandoned the faith of Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob. This county has stepped out from beneath that convent, that guaranteed durability. Not just ancient Israel but all those who followed in those paths.”

"There is an old Christian hymn that says this is my father’s world and I am absolute convinced of that. We need to be more sensitive to the movement of God in our history because it gives us reason for optimism. You know, a lot of times we feel very pessimistic. But when we see how God has already moved in the past, why would we fear for the future?"

— Chaplin Barry Black – ( 1948-)  62nd Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (from the Movie Monumental)


“This is a new nation when we think about history and world history. And this country was allowed to emerge adn become what it is because of the grace of God. And those who founded this nation understood that. An that’s why—you know, America hasn’t been destroyed like other nations that have fallen because because there are still people here who call on  the name of the lord.”

— Alvida King (1951-) Christian Minister and Author (from the Movie Monumental)


"After World War II...we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good...the list is almost endless ... We have confused liberty with license - and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction. ... What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. ... I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established - principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible.”

— Billy Graham (1918 - Christian Evangelist and Minister


"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure....

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


"We can't have it both ways. We can't expect God to protect us in a crisis and just leave Him over there on the shelf in our day-to-day living. I wonder if sometimes He isn't waiting for us to wake up, He isn't maybe running out of patience."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“Practically every social institution is in chaos; moral relativism and situational ethics pervade every arena of public life. Any attempts to invoke the authority of Scripture or lessons of history elicits a cry of, ‘Don’t try to push your view of right and wrong on me; I have my own morality!’ We have reached a point of moral deterioration about which the prophets of Israel proclaimed, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isaiah 5:20-23)

“When a nation establishes its precepts and its standards upon the standards of the Bible, you see a civilization rise. This is now the fruit of what generations before have given to us. And that is why we need to understand, we have lived off the wealth of greatness, greatness of the founders who understood where all truth begins. Truth is what this nation was built upon, the truth of the Bible. And that’s why going forward if we are to be blessed, we need to recognize, what has worked in the past. Which is recognizing the sovereign hand of a holy God and the precepts and the truths of his word. That is what we need to establish today. We can’t just live off the past we have to renew those truths for the next generation.”

― Michele Bachmann – (1956) Member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota


(If we condone or encourage homosexual behavior.) “We risk incurring God’s judgment by legitimizing homosexuality, permitting gay marriage, and misusing science for procreation. If we legalize homosexual marriage in America, we will go ‘on the record’ as disregarding God’s laws and offending the laws of nature. We would do well to count the cost of such disobedience before we reap divine displeasure”

"Scripture reminds us: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.' (Luke 12:4). God expects each of us—having been blessed with peace, with prosperity, with life—to dedicate ourselves unreservedly to the task at hand, to rebuild our moral and spiritual foundation which was built upon the eternal truth of God. That foundation made America great. It birthed our nation more than two centuries ago. If we pay the price, we will lead our nation into rebirth and gloriously usher into the ‘Next American Century.'! …


If we continue our destructive path, our time for restoring America is very short indeed. … Over the past fifty years, the United States of America has reversed its course from a nation where godliness prevailed to a nation that seemingly has not time for God. Our drug/sex/rock culture pervades the whole earth through television and movies, with devastating moral effects, eerily reminding us of Babylon described in Jeremiah 51:7: 'She made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.' …


Most Americans have forsaken the principles and morals standards that come from God though His inspired word, the Bible; they have traded absolute truth for a humanistic lie. As a result, the nation is reaping the consequences of that flow from our unconfessed sin. As in Babylon, America is having a massive drinking party to the gods of humanism, secularism, materialism, and atheism.


Listen to this biblical warning given to ancient Israel as they stood poised to enter the Promised Land. …"


“When you have eaten your fill, bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to disobey him. For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large, and your silver and gold have multiplied, that is the time to watch out that you don’t become proud, and forget the lord your God.”

“But if you forget about the Lord your God and worship other gods instead, and follow evil ways, you shall certainly perish, just as the Lord has caused other nations in the past to perish. That will be your fate too, if you don’t obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:10-14,19, 20)

“Like the Pharisees and Sadducees, many people today do not recognize God reaching out to them, nor do they discover the truth of God’s Word and the simple solutions needed to turn out situation around.

"Our laws and customs were constructed to reflect the Ten Commandments, not only to provide for a good life after death, but for a good life on earth. Christians believe Christs' order to Love thy God with all thy heart, thy whole soul, thy whole mind and with all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself. We try to live by that Golden Rule in our public and private life. Unfortunately, the Commandments and the Golden Rule are being forgotten by our society; to achieve our rebirth, we must recall them. Only than we can expect to survive."

“God has a funny sense of humor. He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [a country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil.”

— Father Malachi Martin (Author, Priest and Theologian)


“God has always done judgements. … Ninety-nine percent of the time [He has] done judgements that you will find in the Old Testament. That is He has used nations with their weapons of destruction that have had at that point in time to do His judgements. … He will use existing nations with their arsenal of weapons to do His judgements.”

— Larry Massa (Biblical Teacher, Researcher and Author)

“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

“If the God of life does not respond to this culture of death with judgment, God is not God.

It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth--that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage and peace of mind. All the history of America bears witness to this truth. Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built this Republic.

“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours.

"The issues which today confront the nation are clearly defined and so fundamental as to directly involve the very survival of the Republic. Are we going to preserve the religious base to our origin, our growth and our progress, or yield to the devious assaults of atheistic or other anti-religious forces? Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom? ... Are we going to permit a continuing decline in public and private morality or re-establish high ethical standards as the means of regaining a diminishing faith in the integrity of our public and private institutions?... In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are now heading with such certainty. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments."

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, II & Korean War

“The fundamental basis of this nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teaching we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul.”

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

— Henry L. Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, editor & satirist


“All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing as they must if they believe they can do nothing. There is nothing worse because the council of despair is declaration of irresponsibility; it is Pilate washing his hands.”

“I was stretched every which way but loose …"I was stretched by Mel Gibson. I was stretched by the Guy Upstairs and also I was stretched by the guy downstairs. What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production. ...


“I had all these computers and synthesizers in my studio and the hard drives would go down and the digital picture that lives on the computer with the music would just freeze on his [Satan's] face [Movie The Passion of the Christ]. Then the volume would go to ten and it would happen all the time. The first time it happened, it scared me …Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him.


There was one day when I had been on the movie for about four months when it really became bad that day and a lot of things that were causing doubt in me and I had had enough. The computers froze for about the tenth time that day and it was about nine o'clock at night and so I got really mad, and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, 'Let's go out into the parking lot and let's go.' It was a sea change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion. I had booted everything down and saved it and I was walking down the stairs and I was verbalizing and saying to Satan, 'Manifest yourself right now.' ... He didn't manifest himself, but I wished he would have. It changed for me after that.”

“There is a battle in our society, a battle in the western world; it’s been lost in the rest of the Western world, at least in Western Europe. The battle ground for this is the United States of America. Will we be governered by, in our own lives, Judaeo Christian values or secular values.”

— Dennis  Prager (1948- ) Author, columnist & host of a nationally syndicated radio show


“Socialism is where decent, but ignorant people evolve to automatically. Is the default position. In other words, people left to themselves, without input of wisdom, end up arriving at the conclusion that socialism makes a lot of sense.  … Socialism is only defeated by a constant injection of religo moral energy. Only the Judeo–Christian tradition combats socialism. If you block yourself off from any kind of authentic input of wisdom, little by little socialism begins to make more and more sense.”

— Rabbi Daniel Lapin  (1950-   ) Orthodox Rabbi, talk show host and author

“I, in my own mind, have thought of America as a place in the divine scheme of things that was set aside as a promised land. ... I believe that God in shedding his grace on this country has always in the divine scheme of things kept an eye on our land and guided it as a promised land.”

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“The Founding Fathers expressed in words for all to read the ideal of Government based upon the dignity of the individual. That ideal previously had existed only in the hearts and minds of men. They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great. They, recognizing God as the author of individual fights, declared that the purpose of Government is to secure those rights.

To you and to me this ideal of Government is a self-evident truth. But in many lands the State claims to be the author of human rights. The tragedy of that claim runs through all history and, indeed, dominates our own times. If the State gives rights, it can—and inevitably will—take away those rights.

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first—the most basic—expression of Americanism. Thus the Founding Fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be....Veterans realize, perhaps more clearly than others, the prior place that Almighty God holds in our national life. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people....

The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a  Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights.”

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“We have many men of science; too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. Man is blindly stumbling through a spiritual darkness while toying with the precarious secrets of life and death. The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.”

"The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens.

 “The advent of the "All Volunteer Force" in the 1970s increased the proportion of practicing Christians among both officers and enlisted.

In short, there have been the very opposite of popular pressures for secularization.”

"The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they're getting weak.

There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope."

 "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to fear."

— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) Roman Philosopher, Lawyer, Statesman and constitutionalist

“God chastises those he loves and all through history whether you want to go back to the Old Testament or New Testament God has always punished all nations when they go against God.

When ever mankind drifts away god, pushes them back in line. So, it isn’t a matter of saying Ok where has scriptures warned me that if my country does such and such. Well it has warned us about morality, basic charity as a society. When society differs and goes against god, we a country were supposed to be a nation under god have given over to a million abortions a year, we are accepting homosexuality as a normal life style, our country is pursing immoral act with in other nations, to where our country it self has become a godless nation. And god himself does not sit back and say oh well let them do what they want to do. God is god and god is going to insure and insist that mankind keep his attention on him one way or another. God doesn’t need 6 billion faithful people that are forced into fidelity, he wants mankind stay in faith fidelity with him by free will and choice. And, god has always through history as the scriptures records and predicts that god purifies mankind to make us worthy to accept us him and receive him as a god.”

“I stand before you today heart broken, I know history and I love this country …God blessed this country and it took sacrifice because even though they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that’s an inheritance. And if you are not willing to fight for you inheritance, even when you leave your children, if they won’t fight for it, they don’t keep it. Mean greedy evil people will take it away.


So many of the things we are doing right now as a country are things that lead to loss of a country. I leave you with this thought and challenge any historian, no mater who you are where you are. You show me a country that ever met its demise while as a nation it was honoring the one true God. You won’t find it. Let’s keep this country alive.”

"In essence I find that the foundation of modern conservatism is driven by a clinging to God in fear of the world, whereas the foundation of modern liberalism is a clinging to the world in fear of God; albeit, the true foundation should be one's clinging to God in fear of God.”

“The founders of the United States of America … founded it on the principles ancient convent between the Hebrews and God. The only reason that we fear that right now we stare down into the abyss of doom. The only reason that deep in our hearts we question whether the United States of American will indeed continue, and will it indeed continue as the nation we know and love. The only reason that deep in our hearts we worry for its future is because deep in our hearts we know that this country had abandoned the faith of Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob. This county has stepped out from beneath that convent, that guaranteed durability. Not just ancient Israel but all those who followed in those paths.”

"There is an old Christian hymn that says this is my father’s world and I am absolute convinced of that. We need to be more sensitive to the movement of God in our history because it gives us reason for optimism. You know, a lot of times we feel very pessimistic. But when we see how God has already moved in the past, why would we fear for the future?"

— Chaplin Barry Black – ( 1948-)  62nd Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (from the Movie Monumental)


“This is a new nation when we think about history and world history. And this country was allowed to emerge adn become what it is because of the grace of God. And those who founded this nation understood that. An that’s why—you know, America hasn’t been destroyed like other nations that have fallen because because there are still people here who call on  the name of the lord.”

— Alvida King (1951-) Christian Minister and Author (from the Movie Monumental)


"After World War II...we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good...the list is almost endless ... We have confused liberty with license - and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction. ... What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. ... I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established - principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible.”

— Billy Graham (1918 - Christian Evangelist and Minister


"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure....

"We can't have it both ways. We can't expect God to protect us in a crisis and just leave Him over there on the shelf in our day-to-day living. I wonder if sometimes He isn't waiting for us to wake up, He isn't maybe running out of patience."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“Practically every social institution is in chaos; moral relativism and situational ethics pervade every arena of public life. Any attempts to invoke the authority of Scripture or lessons of history elicits a cry of, ‘Don’t try to push your view of right and wrong on me; I have my own morality!’ We have reached a point of moral deterioration about which the prophets of Israel proclaimed, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isaiah 5:20-23)

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer

“When a nation establishes its precepts and its standards upon the standards of the Bible, you see a civilization rise. This is now the fruit of what generations before have given to us. And that is why we need to understand, we have lived off the wealth of greatness, greatness of the founders who understood where all truth begins. Truth is what this nation was built upon, the truth of the Bible. And that’s why going forward if we are to be blessed, we need to recognize, what has worked in the past. Which is recognizing the sovereign hand of a holy God and the precepts and the truths of his word. That is what we need to establish today. We can’t just live off the past we have to renew those truths for the next generation.”

― Michele Bachmann – (1956) Member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota


(If we condone or encourage homosexual behavior.) “We risk incurring God’s judgment by legitimizing homosexuality, permitting gay marriage, and misusing science for procreation. If we legalize homosexual marriage in America, we will go ‘on the record’ as disregarding God’s laws and offending the laws of nature. We would do well to count the cost of such disobedience before we reap divine displeasure”

"Scripture reminds us: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.' (Luke 12:4). God expects each of us—having been blessed with peace, with prosperity, with life—to dedicate ourselves unreservedly to the task at hand, to rebuild our moral and spiritual foundation which was built upon the eternal truth of God. That foundation made America great. It birthed our nation more than two centuries ago. If we pay the price, we will lead our nation into rebirth and gloriously usher into the ‘Next American Century.'! …


If we continue our destructive path, our time for restoring America is very short indeed. … Over the past fifty years, the United States of America has reversed its course from a nation where godliness prevailed to a nation that seemingly has not time for God. Our drug/sex/rock culture pervades the whole earth through television and movies, with devastating moral effects, eerily reminding us of Babylon described in Jeremiah 51:7: 'She made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.' …


Most Americans have forsaken the principles and morals standards that come from God though His inspired word, the Bible; they have traded absolute truth for a humanistic lie. As a result, the nation is reaping the consequences of that flow from our unconfessed sin. As in Babylon, America is having a massive drinking party to the gods of humanism, secularism, materialism, and atheism.


Listen to this biblical warning given to ancient Israel as they stood poised to enter the Promised Land. …"


“When you have eaten your fill, bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to disobey him. For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large, and your silver and gold have multiplied, that is the time to watch out that you don’t become proud, and forget the lord your God.”

“But if you forget about the Lord your God and worship other gods instead, and follow evil ways, you shall certainly perish, just as the Lord has caused other nations in the past to perish. That will be your fate too, if you don’t obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:10-14,19, 20)

“Like the Pharisees and Sadducees, many people today do not recognize God reaching out to them, nor do they discover the truth of God’s Word and the simple solutions needed to turn out situation around.

"Our laws and customs were constructed to reflect the Ten Commandments, not only to provide for a good life after death, but for a good life on earth. Christians believe Christs' order to Love thy God with all thy heart, thy whole soul, thy whole mind and with all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself. We try to live by that Golden Rule in our public and private life. Unfortunately, the Commandments and the Golden Rule are being forgotten by our society; to achieve our rebirth, we must recall them. Only than we can expect to survive."

“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

"How prone all human institutions have been to decay; how subject the best-formed and most wisely organized governments have been to lose their check and totally dissolve; how difficult it has been for mankind, in all ages and countries, to preserve their dearest rights and best privileges, impelled as it were by an irresistible fate of despotism."

It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world. It is given to defend the spiritual values—the moral code—against the vast forces of evil that seek to destroy them.”

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "He who through faith is righteous shall live." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.”

— Romans 1:17-32  RSV


“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N Bellah (1927-  ) American sociologist, professor and author (The Broken Covenant)


As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth--that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage and peace of mind. All the history of America bears witness to this truth. Out of faith in God, and through faith in themselves as His children, our forefathers designed and built this Republic.

— Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) Supreme Commander during WWII & 34th President of U.S.

“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours. Through intense suffering our country has now achieved a spiritual development of such intensity that the Western system in its present state of spiritual exhaustion does not look attractive. Even those characteristics of your life which I have just mentioned are extremely saddening.”

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the LORD your God commanded you.”

— Deuteronomy 5:7-12  RSV


"The issues which today confront the nation are clearly defined and so fundamental as to directly involve the very survival of the Republic. Are we going to preserve the religious base to our origin, our growth and our progress, or yield to the devious assaults of atheistic or other anti-religious forces? Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom? ... Are we going to permit a continuing decline in public and private morality or re-establish high ethical standards as the means of regaining a diminishing faith in the integrity of our public and private institutions?... In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are now heading with such certainty. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments."

— Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) Army General, involved in war in the Philippines, World War I, II & Korean War

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.

And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.”

— Henry L. Mencken (1880-1956) American journalist, editor & satirist

“I was stretched every which way but loose …"I was stretched by Mel Gibson. I was stretched by the Guy Upstairs and also I was stretched by the guy downstairs. What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production. ...


“I had all these computers and synthesizers in my studio and the hard drives would go down and the digital picture that lives on the computer with the music would just freeze on his [Satan's] face [Movie The Passion of the Christ]. Then the volume would go to ten and it would happen all the time. The first time it happened, it scared me …Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him.


There was one day when I had been on the movie for about four months when it really became bad that day and a lot of things that were causing doubt in me and I had had enough. The computers froze for about the tenth time that day and it was about nine o'clock at night and so I got really mad, and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, 'Let's go out into the parking lot and let's go.' It was a sea change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion. I had booted everything down and saved it and I was walking down the stairs and I was verbalizing and saying to Satan, 'Manifest yourself right now.' ... He didn't manifest himself, but I wished he would have. It changed for me after that.”

“There is a battle in our society, a battle in the western world; it’s been lost in the rest of the Western world, at least in Western Europe. The battle ground for this is the United States of America. Will we be governered by, in our own lives, Judaeo Christian values or secular values.”

In other words, people left to themselves, without input of wisdom, end up arriving at the conclusion that socialism makes a lot of sense.  … Socialism is only defeated by a constant injection of religo moral energy. Only the Judeo–Christian tradition combats socialism. If you block yourself off from any kind of authentic input of wisdom, little by little socialism begins to make more and more sense.”

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“The Founding Fathers expressed in words for all to read the ideal of Government based upon the dignity of the individual. That ideal previously had existed only in the hearts and minds of men. They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great. They, recognizing God as the author of individual fights, declared that the purpose of Government is to secure those rights.

To you and to me this ideal of Government is a self-evident truth. But in many lands the State claims to be the author of human rights. The tragedy of that claim runs through all history and, indeed, dominates our own times. If the State gives rights, it can—and inevitably will—take away those rights.

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first—the most basic—expression of Americanism. Thus the Founding Fathers saw it, and thus, with God’s help, it will continue to be....Veterans realize, perhaps more clearly than others, the prior place that Almighty God holds in our national life. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people....

The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a  Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights.”

 "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  A murderer is less to fear."

— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC) Roman Philosopher, Lawyer, Statesman and constitutionalist

“God chastises those he loves and all through history whether you want to go back to the Old Testament or New Testament God has always punished all nations when they go against God.

When ever mankind drifts away god, pushes them back in line. So, it isn’t a matter of saying Ok where has scriptures warned me that if my country does such and such. Well it has warned us about morality, basic charity as a society. When society differs and goes against god, we a country were supposed to be a nation under god have given over to a million abortions a year, we are accepting homosexuality as a normal life style, our country is pursing immoral act with in other nations, to where our country it self has become a godless nation. And god himself does not sit back and say oh well let them do what they want to do. God is god and god is going to insure and insist that mankind keep his attention on him one way or another. God doesn’t need 6 billion faithful people that are forced into fidelity, he wants mankind stay in faith fidelity with him by free will and choice. And, god has always through history as the scriptures records and predicts that god purifies mankind to make us worthy to accept us him and receive him as a god.”

“I stand before you today heart broken, I know history and I love this country …God blessed this country and it took sacrifice because even though they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that’s an inheritance. And if you are not willing to fight for you inheritance, even when you leave your children, if they won’t fight for it, they don’t keep it. Mean greedy evil people will take it away.


So many of the things we are doing right now as a country are things that lead to loss of a country. I leave you with this thought and challenge any historian, no mater who you are where you are. You show me a country that ever met its demise while as a nation it was honoring the one true God. You won’t find it. Let’s keep this country alive.”

“The founders of the United States of America … founded it on the principles ancient convent between the Hebrews and God. The only reason that we fear that right now we stare down into the abyss of doom. The only reason that deep in our hearts we question whether the United States of American will indeed continue, and will it indeed continue as the nation we know and love. The only reason that deep in our hearts we worry for its future is because deep in our hearts we know that this country had abandoned the faith of Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob. This county has stepped out from beneath that convent, that guaranteed durability. Not just ancient Israel but all those who followed in those paths.”

"There is an old Christian hymn that says this is my father’s world and I am absolute convinced of that. We need to be more sensitive to the movement of God in our history because it gives us reason for optimism. You know, a lot of times we feel very pessimistic. But when we see how God has already moved in the past, why would we fear for the future?"

— Chaplin Barry Black – ( 1948-)  62nd Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (from the Movie Monumental)


“This is a new nation when we think about history and world history. And this country was allowed to emerge adn become what it is because of the grace of God. And those who founded this nation understood that. An that’s why—you know, America hasn’t been destroyed like other nations that have fallen because because there are still people here who call on  the name of the lord.”

— Alvida King (1951-) Christian Minister and Author (from the Movie Monumental)


"After World War II...we had the opportunity to rule the world. … Something has happened since those days and there is much about America that is no longer good...the list is almost endless ... We have confused liberty with license - and we are paying the awful price. We are a society poised on the brink of self-destruction. ... What is the problem? The real problem is within ourselves. ... I believe the fundamental crisis of our time is a crisis of the spirit. We have lost sight of the moral and spiritual principles on which this nation was established - principles drawn largely from the Judeo-Christian tradition as found in the Bible.”

— Billy Graham (1918 - Christian Evangelist and Minister


"Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure.... America needs God more than God needs America. If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


"We can't have it both ways. We can't expect God to protect us in a crisis and just leave Him over there on the shelf in our day-to-day living. I wonder if sometimes He isn't waiting for us to wake up, He isn't maybe running out of patience."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


“Practically every social institution is in chaos; moral relativism and situational ethics pervade every arena of public life. Any attempts to invoke the authority of Scripture or lessons of history elicits a cry of, ‘Don’t try to push your view of right and wrong on me; I have my own morality!’ We have reached a point of moral deterioration about which the prophets of Israel proclaimed, ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isaiah 5:20-23)

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer

“When a nation establishes its precepts and its standards upon the standards of the Bible, you see a civilization rise. This is now the fruit of what generations before have given to us. And that is why we need to understand, we have lived off the wealth of greatness, greatness of the founders who understood where all truth begins. Truth is what this nation was built upon, the truth of the Bible. And that’s why going forward if we are to be blessed, we need to recognize, what has worked in the past. Which is recognizing the sovereign hand of a holy God and the precepts and the truths of his word. That is what we need to establish today. We can’t just live off the past we have to renew those truths for the next generation.”

― Michele Bachmann – (1956) Member of the House of Representatives from Minnesota


(If we condone or encourage homosexual behavior.) “We risk incurring God’s judgment by legitimizing homosexuality, permitting gay marriage, and misusing science for procreation. If we legalize homosexual marriage in America, we will go ‘on the record’ as disregarding God’s laws and offending the laws of nature. We would do well to count the cost of such disobedience before we reap divine displeasure”

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer


"Scripture reminds us: 'From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.' (Luke 12:4). God expects each of us—having been blessed with peace, with prosperity, with life—to dedicate ourselves unreservedly to the task at hand, to rebuild our moral and spiritual foundation which was built upon the eternal truth of God. That foundation made America great. It birthed our nation more than two centuries ago. If we pay the price, we will lead our nation into rebirth and gloriously usher into the ‘Next American Century.'! …


If we continue our destructive path, our time for restoring America is very short indeed. … Over the past fifty years, the United States of America has reversed its course from a nation where godliness prevailed to a nation that seemingly has not time for God. Our drug/sex/rock culture pervades the whole earth through television and movies, with devastating moral effects, eerily reminding us of Babylon described in Jeremiah 51:7: 'She made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad.' …


Most Americans have forsaken the principles and morals standards that come from God though His inspired word, the Bible; they have traded absolute truth for a humanistic lie. As a result, the nation is reaping the consequences of that flow from our unconfessed sin. As in Babylon, America is having a massive drinking party to the gods of humanism, secularism, materialism, and atheism.


Listen to this biblical warning given to ancient Israel as they stood poised to enter the Promised Land. …"


“When you have eaten your fill, bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to disobey him. For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, and when your flocks and herds have become very large, and your silver and gold have multiplied, that is the time to watch out that you don’t become proud, and forget the lord your God.”

“But if you forget about the Lord your God and worship other gods instead, and follow evil ways, you shall certainly perish, just as the Lord has caused other nations in the past to perish. That will be your fate too, if you don’t obey the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:10-14,19, 20)

“‘The Decline and Fall of the United States of America’ is going to be a piece of cake for future historians to write.”

— Pat Buchanan (1938) Author, Columnist, Political Commentator, Politian


“Like the Pharisees and Sadducees, many people today do not recognize God reaching out to them, nor do they discover the truth of God’s Word and the simple solutions needed to turn out situation around. Most tragically, they do not foresee their own inevitable destruction because they have rejected God’s personal warning. … Today, America has only two choices: continue its ungodly path to destruction, or respond to God’s call for repentance. … He will restore our nation even at this late hour.

— William (Bill) R. Bright (1921-2003) Minister, Author, and Film Producer


"The criminal is the product of spiritual starvation. Someone failed miserably to bring him to know God, love Him and serve Him.

— J. Edgar Hoover – (1895–1972) First Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

“By rejecting faith in Jesus Christ, America has also rejected God’s protective hand, which until recently, sheltered this nation from harm. We have invited the devil which all his diabolical and destructive power in our daily lives.”

"I see America not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us. I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision."

— Carl Sandburg (1878–1967) Writer, Editor, and Poet


“If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.”

— Anatole France (1844-1924) French Poet, Journalist, and Novelist


"Our laws and customs were constructed to reflect the Ten Commandments, not only to provide for a good life after death, but for a good life on earth. Christians believe Christs' order to Love thy God with all thy heart, thy whole soul, thy whole mind and with all thy strength, and love thy neighbor as thyself. We try to live by that Golden Rule in our public and private life. Unfortunately, the Commandments and the Golden Rule are being forgotten by our society; to achieve our rebirth, we must recall them. Only than we can expect to survive."

— Jeremiah Andrew Denton, Jr. (1924– 2014) Naval Aviator held as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for almost eight years, U.S. Senator


“The future is purchased by the present.”

“God judges nations, states, cities, local areas based on the policies they have.”

— David Barton, Author and Public Speaker on America’s Biblical Heritage


“God has a funny sense of humor. He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [a country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil.”

— Father Malachi Martin (Author, Priest and Theologian)


“God has always done judgements. … Ninety-nine percent of the time [He has] done judgements that you will find in the Old Testament. That is He has used nations with their weapons of destruction that have had at that point in time to do His judgements. … He will use existing nations with their arsenal of weapons to do His judgements.”

— Larry Massa (Biblical Teacher, Researcher and Author)

“We may wonder at the choice of Israel and Rome as the archetypes of the new nation, in view of the long history of suffering of the former and the decline of the latter. We may wonder that our ancestors over-looked the darker days of those earlier nations. They did not. They hoped to construct a republic on principles so sound that it might avoid their fate. But they were certain that if we should decline in piety and public virtue we would meet the inexorable fate of nations, which are as but dust in the hands of God.”

— Robert N. Bellah (Sociologist, Professor and Author)
