God & The Spiritual Divide in America - 2013

"There has always been a divine undercurrent in the history of the Americas, especially in the United States. It is unfortunate there are many who fail to observe the numerous examples of God's hand in the country's history and their own lives. Most regrettable it is there are those who want to destroy God's work, obscure them and re-write history. How foolish and dangerous it is for us to fight the currents of destiny. ... We can make war against God. But ultimately our history and destiny as a nation will be written by the choices we have made."
― The Author

“God judges nations, states, cities, local areas based on the policies they have.”
— David Barton, Author and Public Speaker on America’s Biblical Heritage (Wallbuilders Daily Radio - 9-10-2014)

“Those public policy decisions do result in consequences … even the good guys had to go thought the nation judgment brought on by bad policies from national leaders. Even if you disagree with those polices, even if you disagree with  non-discrimination ordinances if your city has one God not going to be able to bless that … Even for those who don’t get involved in politics you will pay a price for what your political leaders do. You are not isolated from that …”
— David Barton, Author and Public Speaker on America’s Biblical Heritage
(Wallbuilders Daily Radio - 9-9-2014)

“The prosperous smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained.”
— George Washington (1732-1799) Father of the Country, 1st President of the United States.

“The Supreme Governor of the World rewards or punishes nations and civil communities only in this life…. Political bodies are but the creatures of time. They have no existence as such but in the present State; consequently, are incapable of punishments or rewards in a future. We can conceive no way in which the Divine Being shall therefore manifest the purity of His nature. ... toward such societies but by rewarding or punishing them here, according to their public conduct.”
— Chandler Robbins Sermon before John Hancock and the Massachusetts Legislature in 1791

“But when elected representatives in state or federal government legislate against the laws of God, such as legalization of abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and other laws that are blasphemous to God, they are saying to God that we refuse to honor you or your Laws, we will not follow. Those who legislate against God have not only sinned against God, they set themselves up as more important or better than God, and in doing so they have become an enemy to God. Thus appropriate for us today are words of warning given by Charles G. Finney before the Civil War. “Christians” he said, “seem to act as if they think God does not see what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it, and He will bless or curse this nation, according to the course they take.”

Voters cannot escape the fact that they bear some responsibility for the actions, decisions, and laws made by those who were elected on their behalf. Nor can the children of those voters escape the consequences of their parents actions in electing immoral men and women to office whose actions and laws go against God and his commandments. As many of the Founding Fathers, Daniel Webster, and others over the years have warned, acts of government or actions of man that go against God and His Laws invite chastisement upon the county. No nation in our recorded Biblical history, ever, violates divine law for any extended period of time with impunity. …

But in a society as open as the United States, can there be any excuse for ignorance of history? Can there be any excuse for ignorance of Biblical truths or for violating and flaunting divine law decades? The country has rebelled against God. As a result, the country has not just lost its way from the path God set us on and created the country for, it has lost the reason for its existence. As Thomas Jefferson warned, history “teaches the awful lesson, that no nation is permitted to live in ignorance with impunity.” The country is in need of purification.

Perhaps the strongest message the Founding Fathers and other patriots gave to future generations was that there is God (the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), and it is our duty to acknowledge him, to follow his laws and humbly implore his protection and blessings. Conversely, because there is a just God that presides over the destinies of nations, we were warned there would be chastisement if we went against God and his laws. …”
— Michael A. Shea - Author, Public Speaker on God's Divine Hand in American History (From the book In GOD We Trust: George Washington and the Spiritual Destiny of the United States of America, chapter titled Future History)

“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)

Parents: Watch For These Red Flags at School – BY Linda Harvey ... So, this year if you really would rather your son or daughter not be taught that homosexuality is inborn, that it’s no big deal, and that the Bible’s instruction against homosexuality is wrong, hateful, or dismissible, watch for the presence of these “gay agenda” elements at your child’s school:

   1) “Gay” history, which attempts to normalize, exalt and sometimes invent the homosexual preferences of famous historical figures. Whatever other talents these folks possessed, they would always have done better without any “gay” behavior.

   2)“LGBT” advocacy disguised as “civil rights.” It’s not hateful, but constructive, to question homosexual behavior or gender confusion, and this vicious, deceitful movement is nothing like race relations.

   3) Same-sex families being portrayed as a normal, uncontroversial variation in stories or lessons, even in math class. “Jenna and her dads bought milk. How many cups are in a gallon?” ...  - Link to Website

Each family's bill for Obama presidency: $61,000 - But 'No More Red Ink' campaign lets you express outrage to Congress – by Bob Unruh – … “The United States has added $7.06 trillion of debt since President Obama took office – far more than under any previous president,” he wrote. “Today, the country is saddled with more than $17.6 trillion of gross debt, an increase of more than $61,000 per American household during Obama’s presidency alone. Median household income in the U.S. is about $51,000. This means that during Obama’s presidency debt per household grew by more than the typical American family earns in a given year.” - Link to Website

“Allow a government to decline paying its debts and you overthrow all public morality--you unhinge all the principles that preserve the limits of free constitutions. Nothing can more affect national prosperity than a constant and systematic attention to extinguish the present debt and to avoid as much as possibly the incurring of any new debt.”
— Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) Lawyer, Secretary of the Treasury & Secretary of State

Let’s tell the truth about vaccines - Finally scientists acknowledge aborted fetuses are the source … In 1964, an American researcher obtained cells from a Swedish foetus aborted because her mother already had enough children. He coaxed them into multiplying into a cell line which he called WI-38. Since they were normal and healthy, they were ideal for creating vaccines. Two years later, scientists in the UK obtained cells from a 14-week male fetus aborted for “psychiatric reasons” from a 27-year-old British woman. This cell line is called MRC-5 - Link to Website

"The strength of our nation is more than a material strength. We are a strongly moral people, and our country is based on spiritual strength. Lose that and we lose everything."

"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."

"The Declaration of Independence has established certain moral confines, and governs in a manner consistent with the spirit under which our nation was founded: Love God; love thy neighbor as thyself. God is denied by the Communists and this denial is reflected by the way in which they treat their own subjects. Their system derives its strength from discipline imposed by the state. Ours derives its strength from the collective self-discipline of our individual citizens “

"The family is the engine that drives civilization. Throughout history, those cultures that have failed to found their rules and attitudes of society on the central importance of the family unit have decayed and disintegrated."

"Founded on faith in God, the United States has been blessed as no other nation."

"Our coin bears the inscription: In God We Trust. And our Bible reassures us: The Lord is just and merciful. With the Lord thence our protector, whom or what shall we fear?"

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

High School Student Claims She Was Suspended For Saying ‘Bless You’ After Classmate Sneezed – A high school student was allegedly suspended after breaking a class rule of saying “bless you” after a classmate sneezed.

Kendra Turner, a senior at Dyer County High School, said bless you to her classmate who sneezed and the teacher told her that the term was for church.

“She said that we’re not going to have godly speaking in her class and that’s when I said we have a constitutional right,” Turner told WMC. …

“It’s alright to defend God and it’s our constitutional right because we have a freedom of religion and freedom of speech,” Turner told WMC. - Link to Website

Government to Farmers: Host Same-Sex Wedding or Pay a $13,000 Fine – By Leslie Ford and Ryan T. Anderson - Should the government be able to coerce a family farm into hosting a same-sex wedding?

In a free society, the answer is no. Family farms should be free to operate in accordance with the beliefs and values of their owners. Government shouldn’t be able to fine citizens for acting in the market according to their own—rather than the government’s—values, unless there is a compelling government interest being pursued in the least restrictive way possible. - Link to Website

Pastor Was so Frustrated With Christians ‘Brainwashed Into Thinking That Jesus Was a Socialist or Marxist’ That He Penned This Book - by Billy Hallowell -… I was so frustrated with Christians who had been brainwashed into thinking that Jesus was a socialist or Marxist. Marxism has killed 90-110 million people in history and yet people still held that position. Jesus is no more a Marxist, than he was a murderer…

Entrepreneurship and capitalism is not just a good idea, it’s God’s idea. Capitalism is the free exchange of privately held goods and services. The Ten Commandments talk about private property … and liberty is mentioned from Genesis to Revelation: “Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” and “Proclaim Liberty unto all the land.”

Free exchange plays to both personal incentive while requiring an others-focused approach. In order for me to profit, I must put the buyer’s needs first and offer them a quality and price that they would freely choose to engage in. Proverbs 31 summarizes it this way:... - Link to Website

Does This Professor’s Use of Logic to Break Down ‘Moral Evil’ and ‘Natural Suffering’ Corroborate God’s Existence? - ... Dr. Peter Kreeft, a philosophy professor at Boston College, says that the mere belief in the concept of justice corroborates the existence of a higher power. ...

“Because God has given people free will, they are free to behave against God’s will,” he said of the existence of moral evil. “The fact that they do evil does not prove that God is not good.”…

“Our judgements of good and evil … presuppose God as the standard. If there’s no God, there’s neither good nor evil. There’s just nature doing what it does,” he said. “For the atheist … no suffering is ever set right. There is no ultimate justice. The bad win and the good suffer.” - Link to Video

The Bible and Economics - By Stephen McDowell - The Bible speaks to all of life and gives principles for every good work (2 Tim. 3:16-17). It has much to say about economics and business. To be able to assess our current economic situation and determine what policies would be best to put the nation upon a path of prosperity, we must know what the Bible teaches about economics. Some Biblical economic principles include:

Discredit American culture... Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce..."

Democrat Rep. Herlong continued listing Communist goals:

"Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as 'normal, natural, healthy'...

Infiltrate churches and replace revealed religion with 'social' religion...

Leaked CBP Report Shows Entire World Exploiting Open US Border - by Brandon Darby - The numbers provided are in graphics and are broken down into “OFO” and “OBP.”…

The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred.

Among the significant revelations are that individuals from nations currently suffering from the world’s largest Ebola outbreak have been caught attempting to sneak across the porous U.S. border into the interior of the United States. At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014. - Link to Website

“When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”
— Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) Statesman, Scientist, Inventor, Printer and Philosopher

“Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them ; and as Governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too. Wherefore governments rather depend upon men than men upon governments. Let men be good [virtue & fear of God] and the government cannot be bad; if it be ill, they will cure it. But, if men be bad, let the government be ever so good, they will endeavor to warp and spoil it to their turn.”
William Penn (1644-1718) Quaker and founder of Pennsylvania

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of inlldcls or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”
Patrick Henry (1736-1799) Patriot, Lawyer and Orator

America's future will be determined by the home and the school. The child becomes largely what he is taught; hence we must watch what we teach, and how we live.”
 Jane Addams (1860–1935) Active in the Women Suffrage movement & First American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. The more they increased, the more they sinned against me; I will change their glory into shame.”

Capricious Children Are Leading America: Surprised? - By Jeremiah Johnson - …  it has become painfully apparent and obvious to me according to the Scriptures that when a nation begins calling, “good evil and evil good“, and embraces principles that are contrary to righteousness, one of the first CONSEQUENCES and JUDGMENTS released from the hand of God Himself is the setting up of IMMATURE LEADERSHIP TO GOVERN THE PEOPLE.

Isaiah 3:4-5 makes it loud, plain, and clear, “I will make immature lads their princes. And capricious children will rule over them. And the people WILL BE OPPRESSED.”

Who exactly are the capricious children that will rule over the people? They are leaders who are erratic and make unpredictable decisions. They thrive off of making people guess what is going to happen next. They themselves are subject to odd and often times sudden notions. - Link to Website

Obama: Muslims Built 'The Very Fabric of Our Nation' ??? - by Robert Wilde - Link to Website

Founding Fathers refute Obama's Muslim 'fabric' - Past leaders take issue with current president's revisionist history - But the Founding Fathers would find the comments even more baffling.

Far from incorporating Islam into America’s early tapestry, their own writings reveal the Founding Fathers were at war with the creed and its adherents.

In 1801, President Jefferson sent the Navy to the Barbary Coast to stop Islamic pirates’ reign of terror on U.S. merchant ships. Jefferson read the Quran to understand what was motivating the pirates, and he learned that the Muslim holy book commanded the faithful to “plunder and enslave” non-Muslims.

In 1814, after Tripoli broke its truce and began attacking U.S. ships again, former President John Adams wrote Jefferson a letter advising that Islam’s founder and prophet was “a military fanatic.” In another writing, he condemned Islamic law as “contemptible.” - Link to Website

Weird weather patterns or chastisement from God?

West's drought leads to rising prices, shrinking lakes - By Paul Vercammen - Just how bad is the drought in California? It's so bad, that in some extreme cases, thieves are stealing water.

A father and daughter living off a water tank in the Central Valley report being ripped off eight times -- 2,500 gallons disappeared. That meant no showers -- and no toilet flushing.

The lack of rain has pushed most of California into extreme or exceptional drought, the two worst levels, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. In most of California's major reservoirs, the water supplies that sustain many communities are less than half full. - Link to Website

Lake Mead Before and After the Epic Drought - A new study shows the Colorado River basin is losing water at a “shocking” rate. - By Eric Holthaus - … "We don't know exactly how much groundwater we have left, so we don't know when we're going to run out," said Stephanie Castle of UCI, the study's lead author, in a press release. "This is a lot of water to lose. We thought that the picture could be pretty bad, but this was shocking."

Nowhere is the drop in the Colorado River more apparent than in the Hoover Dam’s Lake Mead.

Earlier this month, Lake Mead set a new all-time record low. To memorialize the event, photographer Ethan Miller set out to take a series of “after” photos to complement pictures he took in July 2007. When you compare the two sets, the result is nothing short of stunning. - Link to Website

It’s Tocqueville’s birthday: Here’s what he predicted despotism in America would look like - by Benjamin Weingarten - … Above this race of men stands an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure their gratifications, and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing.

For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness: it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances—what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living? .. .nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. - Link to Website

Explaining the “Sacred Right of Conscience” to the Left - by Jerry Newcombe - …Abortion is the key to understanding this controversy. There are 26 contraceptives covered by the HHS Mandate, four of which involve abortion. Those are the four that Hobby Lobby refused, for conscience sake, to cover. They still provide 22 of the 26 contraceptives for their employees through the insurance plan, but you would new know that from the hysterical rhetoric of the left.

The owners of Hobby Lobby would rather go out of business (and being fined more than a million dollars a day would force them out of business) than violate their conscience.

Good for them. There would be no America were it not for the founding fathers who, with a firm reliance on God’s help, pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. They gave us a Bill of Rights guarantying us freedom of religious exercise. But many on the left seem to value the right to abortion (found nowhere in the Constitution) more than the rights actually there.”- Link to Website

Pearson Common Core expert: ‘Was George Washington any different from Palestinian terrorists…?’ - Danette Clark Danette Clark - “Was George Washington any different from Palestinian terrorists trying to protect their country?” “Was Jefferson a hypocrite? Did he really think of a slave as a sub-human while writing the Declaration of Independence?”

These questions were written for use in the classroom by Grant Wiggins, a Pearson Education author, partner, and Common Core professional development trainer. …

Even absent the biased Common Core resources, teaching strategies like backward design and essential questions are effective in imposing the political and moral bias of the educator onto the student.

As Wiggins and McTighe state here, “the questions ARE the core curriculum, the “content” is not.”.

Compare the Wiggins and McTighe lesson plans below to this lesson discovered in Texas that referred to the Boston Tea Party as an act of terrorism, and this one that said the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened because of bad decisions made by America in the past.  - Link to Website

NYPD Cop-Turned-Demonologist on Why He Believes Possessions Are on the Rise — and the Most Terrifying Thing He’s Seen During an Exorcism – By Billy Hallowell - Sarchie, a self-described demonologist who was once a cop for the 46th police precinct in New York City — and the inspiration for the new Hollywood film “Deliver Us From Evil” — told TheBlaze that he believes possessions and infestations are on the rise. 

“It’s definitely on the rise. I hate to say it,” Sarchie said in an interview. “As society pushes God out, no one can deny that that’s happening. There’s a good portion of society that just cannot stomach Jesus Christ and when I see that, I have to wonder where that hatred comes from.” - Link to Website

What The Founding Fathers Believed About Homosexuality - Tim Brown - First, note that our founding fathers would have been outraged that homosexuals would be out in the open. They knew that such perversion would both undermine and erode the moral foundations of civilization. Under the British common law, the term sodomy was used to identify same-sex relations and was a capital crime. Understand that the founders referenced Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England extensively. He was a British attorney, jurist, law professor, author, and political philosopher. - Link to Website

Homosexual ‘Equality’ is Just Repackaged Tyranny - Gina Miller - Transcendent truth, which is God’s law, does not change and will never change. It is revealed by God in the Bible and is written on the hearts of men. We call it “conscience.” People can bury this fundamental knowledge of right and wrong and the awareness through observing creation that God exists, but at some deep level they still know it. So it is with homosexual behavior. God has called it an abomination, a sin. Men have called it the infamous crime against nature. ...- Link to Website

Common Core's new standards will change the way kids think about America - Betsy McCaughey – … Contrary to what the public is told, Common Core is not about standards. It’s about content: what pupils are taught. In the Social Studies Framework approved on April 29 by New York state’s education authorities (but not parents), American history is presented as four centuries of racism, economic oppression, and gender discrimination. Teachers are encouraged to help students identify their differences instead of their common American identity. Gone are heroes, ideals, and American exceptionalism.

Eleventh grade American history begins with the colonial period, but Puritans and their churches, standing on virtually every New England town green to this day, are erased.

Amazingly, Puritan leader John Winthrop’s “city on a hill” vision, an enduring symbol of American exceptionalism cited by politicians from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan and Michael Dukakis, is gone. Religion is expunged from New York State’s account of how this nation began.Instead, the focus is on “Native Americans who eventually lost much of their land and experienced a drastic decline in population through diseases and armed conflict.” The other focus is on slavery and indentured servitude. …

This is a No Exit system.

But what’s most at stake is truth. Novelist George Orwell warned in “1984” how distorting history destroyed freedom: “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth.” - See more at: - Link to Website

Government Forces Churches To Perform Gay Marriage - By Onan Coca – …The logical outcome of legislating gay marriage (making it legal or illegal) is that the church will be forced into involving itself in gay marriages. And I do mean FORCED.

The Growing Threat of Socialism - By Stephen McDowell - Socialism has been growing in the United States during the past century, often with leaps and at times with small steps. Intermittently, some people and leaders have pushed back this growing plague, seeing some success in re-establishing governmental and economic principles of liberty, but the overall trend has been toward statism. During the past five years we have witnessed a giant leap forward for socialism, with a corresponding decline of liberty.

Socialism is a great threat to liberty and prosperity. It is unbiblical and demonic.

Socialism is a form of statism. Statism is the belief that the civil government (or man via civil government) is the ultimate authority in the earth and as such is the source of law and morality. The state defines what is right and wrong, what is lawful and unlawful, what is moral and immoral. …“the state takes the place of Jehovah.” - Link to Website

"When a government is in its prime, the public good engages the attention of the whole; the strictest regard is paid to the qualifications of those who hold the offices of state; virtue prevails; everything is managed with justice, prudence, and frugality; the laws are founded on principles of equity rather than mere policy, and all the people are happy. But vice will increase with the riches and glory of an empire; and this generally tends to corrupt the Constitution and in time bring on its dissolution. This may be considered not only as the natural effect of vice, but a righteous judgment from Heaven, especially upon a nation which has been favored with the blessings of religion and liberty and is guilty of undervaluing them and eagerly going into the gratification of every lust.”

He answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

From the book Red Sky in the Morning: HOW YOU CAN HELP PREVENT AMERICA'S GATHERING STORMS - "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)

Meet the new fascists – and their victims – By David Kupelian - Documents shocking wave of totalitarian attacks in America - … widely denounced as “fascist,” “totalitarian,” “mafia”-like and “gestapo”-like – is not only not unusual in today’s America, it has become a routine and disgraceful part of the normal warp and weft of our daily lives …To understand the answer to that question is to understand the very core of the “civil war” currently engulfing America.

Here’s how I explain it in “The Marketing of Evil” – which, come to think of it, may explain why the “gay professors” demanded it be expelled from school:

Where and when will this “gay rights” steamroller stop? The end game is not only to bring about the complete acceptance of homosexuality, including same-sex marriage, but also to prohibit and even criminalize open criticism of it, including the quotation of biblical passages disapproving of homosexuality. In other words, total “jamming” of criticism with the force of law.

“Why?” you might ask. “I thought gays just wanted equal rights, and to be free to do what they want in their own bedrooms.” No, they’ve had that for years.

Their campaign will not end until Christians and other traditionalists opposing homosexuality are shut up, discredited and utterly silenced – and all because of a little factor we’ve forgotten about in our cleverness, namely this:

In truth, there is something wrong with homosexuality.

It is immoral, unnatural, perverted, self-destructive – all the negative descriptive terms Western Civilization has applied to it over the centuries.

Homosexual activists fancy their cause as identical to that of blacks during the ’60s Civil Rights Movement. But being black is not a sin. Being of African origin doesn’t involve running away from one’s own conscience, and the author of that conscience – God.

But it is precisely because of this difference that the “gay civil rights” movement is not about changing the laws so homosexuals can have equal opportunity for advancement or access as it was for blacks during the ’60s. Homosexuals already live in freedom, and can reside, work or play virtually anywhere they want. In fact, as a group homosexuals enjoy a higher income level than the general American population.

It’s not about rights. It’s about redefining truth and censoring all criticism so that militant homosexuals can be comfortable in their “lifestyle” without having to be disturbed by reality.

Remember, all of us, homosexuals included, have a conscience – that other-dimensional standard that God has tucked away inside each of us, and which causes us inner conflict when we’re doing the wrong thing. But if we tumble into the grip of dark forces we don’t understand, and then start to defend our obsessions and compulsions, we inevitably come to regard our conscience as an enemy. And although we may be somewhat successful in drowning out that inner warning bell, what happens when this same rejected conscience factor appears in another person and gets too close to us for comfort? We feel threatened.

Therefore, we feel compelled to silence the “voice of conscience” – not just the one inside of us, but the one in other people, which tends to revive our own conscience with which we’re at war. This means we can’t tolerate dissent. We simply can’t stand it. It makes us want to scream.

To the homosexual living in denial, then, even a loving offer of help from, say, a Christian ex-gay ministry or “reparative therapy” counselor (to help overcome homosexual addiction) feels like the most vile, abusive hatred. In fact, it’s real love – which we misinterpret as hatred and “bigotry” simply because it causes us to confront a truth that is not welcome in us. - Link to Website

‘Duck Dynasty’ Star: ‘They Railed Against Me For Giving Them The Truth About Their Sins’ - Benjamin Fearnow - Phil Robertson, star of the popular “Duck Dynasty” television show, defended his controversial comments on homosexuality, giving a church sermon in which he ridiculed media coverage and others “blurring” the lines between “sinners” and homosexuals. …

“They were mad at me,’ he tells the congregation. “You say, ‘Why’d they get mad at you?’ Cause instead of acknowledging their sin, like you had better do, they railed against me for giving them the truth about their sins. Don’t deceive yourselves.”

Robertson’s volume increased as he paraphrased the Corinthians verse of Biblical “sinners.”

“Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” exclaimed Roberts, to a clapping audience. - Link to Website

“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.

WISE IN YOUR OWN EYES: THOSE WITH TRUE SIGHT SEE LITTLE WARNINGS THAT GOD SENDS BEFORE THEY BECOME BIG ONES - Hearing the truth is not the same as understanding it. When we hear the truth and apply it to our lives, that is to understand it: which is wisdom.

Truth works through wisdom and is inhibited when we lack understanding (and charity). God wants you to accomplish your mission, which always has something to do with betterment of all life and all things on this earth, on whatever level, in whatever "small" or large way. This takes sagacity.

Let those who have ears hear (Matthew 11:15). Wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.

"Moral evils constitute or produce most of the miseries of mankind and these may be prevented or avoided. Be it remembered then that disobedience to God's law, or sin is the procuring cause of almost all the sufferings of mankind. God has so formed the moral system of this world, that a conformity to His will by men produces peace, prosperity and happiness; and disobedience to His will or laws inevitably produces misery. If men are wretched, it is because they reject the government of God, and seek temporary good in that which certainly produces evil."

If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, and the people do not become religious, I do not know what is to become of us as a nation. And the thought is one to cause solemn reflection on the part of every patriot and Christian. If truth be not diffused, error will be; if God and his word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy; if the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will; if the power of the Gospel is not felt through the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness, will reign without mitigation or end.”

Patrick Buchanan: The corporate income tax harms America – By PATRICK BUCHANAN – News that Pfizer, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, plans to buy Britain’s AstraZeneca for $106 billion, renounce its U.S. citizenship, and declare itself a British company, has jolted Congress. … Yet Pfizer is not alone. … to evade the 35 percent U.S. corporate income tax. Britain’s corporate income tax is 20 percent, and Pfizer stands to save more than $1 billion a year by moving there. …

Looking back, consider what our political class has done to our once self-sufficient American Republic. We impose on businesses, our principal job creators, the most punitive corporate tax rate in the West. Through “free trade,” we tell U.S. companies that if they wish to avoid our taxes and get around our minimum wage, health, safety and environmental laws, they can move to China, produce there, and bring their products back free of charge — and kill their competitors too patriotic to leave America.

Significance of Flag Folding Ceremony - The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life. The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life. The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing our ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world. The 4th fold represents our weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.

The 5th fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decaur, “Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.” The 6th fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. The 7th fold is a tribute to our Armed Forces, for it is thorough The Armed Forces that we protect our country and our flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day. The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded. The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he too has given his sons and daughters for defense of our country since they were first born. The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the Seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding us of our nation’s motto, “In God We Trust.” - Link to Website

'Harbinger' rabbi: 'Smile of heaven' removed from America -Challenges D.C. leaders with prophetic warning of George Washington - Link to Video

George Washington lays his hand on the Bible in the capital city. … Those first words every spoken by an American president lies a prophetic warning to this nation. Only two civilizations in human history came into existence dedicated from conception to the will and purposes of God. The first was called Israel, the second is called America. America was to be a city on the hill, a light on world. From the words spoken by the Jewish rabbi from Nazareth. …

We stand tonight on Capitol Hill, in the city named after the one who gave that prophetic warning, to ask, can a nation drive out the name of God from its public square, and the Word of God from its schools and the ways of God from its culture and still expect the smiles of God to shine upon it?

Can the blood of 50 million unborn children cry out to heaven from this land and the smiles of heaven still remain?

Members of Congress, can a government call evil good and good evil and forge laws that war against the laws of the Almighty and the smiles of heaven still remain?

Supreme Court justices, can you strike down the statutes of the Almighty and overturn the judgments of the Most High and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain?

Mr. President, can you place your left hand on the Word of God to assume your office and with your right hand sign laws which break the very Word upon which you swore and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain?”

Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?' He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Then do you want us to go and gather them?' But he said, 'No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'" Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches." He told them another parable. "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened." All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world." Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field." He answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

A Nation Abandoned by God - Pastor John MacArthur - ...“People and nations, even the covenant nation Israel can come to a point where they are abandoned by God.  … Now I'm going to say something, you're going to have to hold on to your seat a little bit.  I'm convinced beyond doubt that in this same sense, God has abandoned America.    This is the most graphic and the most detailed and the most comprehensive discussion of what it means for a people, a society to be abandoned by God.  And it perfectly describes the moral chaos in our own nation today. …

Throughout history these calamities continue to even happen and they all fit in the category of God's judgment of sin.   But there's this other category of the wrath of abandonment, it is a form of God's wrath in which He lets go of a society and let's it catapult full speed without restraint in the direction of its own sinful desires and devices and choices. 

We'd like to talk about the fact that America was founded on Christian principles and God was at the center of it, and all of that, whatever it might have been in our founding, it's no longer the way it is and I want to show you how you know that has happened.

Go down to verse 24.  You see in verse 24 the first word "therefore," this means we're now going to see a description that connects to what has been said.  If you go back to verse 18, "The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men," and we could stop at that point.  The wrath of God is revealed.  And then it goes on to talk about the wrath of God and the reasons for the wrath of God.  And then in verse 24 it then describes the wrath of God and here's the description.  "Therefore God gave them over, or God gave them up, in the lust of their hearts to impurity that their bodies might be dishonored among them, for they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator who is blessed forever, amen.  For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions, for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural.  In the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman, burned in their desire toward one another, men with men, committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.  And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind to do the things that are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, envy, full of...or evil full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossip, slander, haters of God, insolent arrogant boastful inventors of evil, disobedient to parents without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful.  And although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, and not only do them, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them." …

The first thing you look for in a society you're trying to discern whether God has abandoned that society is whether or not that society has gone through a sexual revolution so that illicit sex, adultery, every form of immorality is accepted as normal in that society.  And we're there."

“This is what it means when God abandons a society. Sexual revolution, down one more step; homosexual revolution, down one more step; you can't ever get your way out of it because the mind, the cultural mind is gone...it's gone...it's gone.  And I would put it this way, maybe simply, there's no surer indicator of a corrupted, wicked and abandoned society under God's wrath than when that society does not tolerate anger against sin.  This society will not tolerate you standing up and displaying righteous indignation against sin.”
— John MacArthur (1939) Pastor of  Grace Community Church and host of Radio Show Grace to You

Authors note: This is a jaw dropping audio. If Pastor John MacArthur is correct that we as a nation we have been abandoned by God, then short of national repentance, we have already written our future history.  Link to - Audio   Link to Text

'Harbinger' rabbi warns America of 'impending judgment'  - Link to Website

“America was conceived for the purpose of God, and dedicated to His glory. Formed after the pattern of ancient Israel it was called to be a city on the hill. America has been blessed as no other nation has ever been blessed. But through much is given much is required. America as did with Israel with its blessing has been turning away from God driving Him out of its public squares. Bring in idols in its place and calling what is evil good and what is good evil. … The glory of the city on the hill is fading and America now stands in danger of impending judgment, and we all know it. And to much of the church as lost its salt and cease to do anything about it. And now the same Biblical signs of national judgment that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel are appearing on American soil. … America was blessed because of God alone. If America ever turned away from God, then the blessings of heaven would be removed from the land."
— Jonathan Cahn – Rabbi, Author, and Public Speaker

Jesus of Nazareth, Enemy of the State, Executed for Treason - An Official Declaration Concerning the Criminal Jesus of Nazareth - Jesus of Nazareth was executed on the orders of the Roman State. Method of execution: Crucifixion. The charge under Roman law was treason, and under Herodian law blasphemy against the Temple.

The evidence against this anarchist was so strong that authorities of both the Roman State and the Kingdom of Herod concurred with the arrest and execution, and Jesus was subjected to trial by both governments. And in a rare uprising of spontaneous collective justice, the mass of people who were gathered for Passover called for his execution as well. ..

Friday’s execution ended a career as an anti-government agitator with a long history of lawlessness. … - Link to Website

7 common careers Christians may no longer hold in America …Many Christians choose self-employed careers because they want to be able to run their business according to the dictates of their faith and conscience.

That list is quickly shrinking as homosexuals pro-actively seek opportunities to wreck the personal business and career of any Christian who declines to support the gay lifestyle.

Don't be fooled. This is a focused effort to ostracize and humiliate faith-based businesses and their owners. Here are a few recent examples. - Link to Website

“Because Roman civilization perished through barbarian invasions, we are perhaps too much inclined to think that that is the only way a civilization can die. If the lights that guide us ever go out, they will fade little by little, as if of their own accord…. We therefore should not console ourselves by thinking that the barbarians are still a long way off. Some peoples may let the torch be snatched from their hands, but others stamp it out themselves.”

Ben Carson: Americans 'Being Played' by Those Who Seek Division - Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson said Thursday that Americans are "being played by those people who want to divide, conquer and control."

"The trend you can see in our society is if you are pro-life, then you're anti-woman," Carson said at a town hall meeting entitled "Religion in America," sponsored by local news station CBS12 in West Palm Beach, Fla. "If you're pro-traditional marriage, then you're homophobic. If you're a white person — and you say something against a progressive black person, you’re a racist.

"We have gotten to this point to where we just like to label people and create division," Carson added. "Where the American people have to come in here is recognizing that we're being manipulated." - Link to Website

America 2.0 – The Great Reset - By Jay Rogers - The United States of America owes its existence to several centuries of political philosophy, which began shortly after the Protestant Reformation and the overthrow of the doctrine of the “Divine Right of Kings.” At the time of the American Revolution, the colonists realized that the protection of liberty could only be accomplished practically through armed resistance. A few years later, the framers of the Constitution asserted the right of the states to interposition and nullification when the federal government overstepped its own authority. … Reading such pious words in our founders’ writing, it is easy for Christians today to despair at the heights from which we have fallen as a nation. We have arrived at such a low point that even now the right to display a nativity scene on a courthouse lawn is commonly challenged by the ACLU and the American Atheists organization. Unfortunately, our conservative media outlets and Christian legal defense groups tend to focus on these hot-button news items, while failing to see the underlying cancer that lies at the root of these symptoms. - Link to Website

The battle over gay rights is THE battle ... there is no other - Bryan Fischer  - America's future will be determined by one thing and one thing only: whether the forces of light or darkness will win the battle over special rights based on sexually deviant behavior.

This is for the simple reason that America must choose between homosexuality and religious freedom, between sodomy and liberty. …Religious principle, tolerance and rights of conscience mean nothing to pro-sodomy advocates. They will remorselessly crush anyone and anything that gets in their path, without mercy and without a second thought.

Every single advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty. Americans want to believe otherwise, that sodomy and religious liberty can coexist, but they cannot. - Link to Website

(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.”

American Minute for February 16th  - by Bill Federer - "The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco," stated President Obama in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009.

"They...were well within the England channel, almost in sight of Plymouth. But...there she was unhapply taken by a Turkish man-of-war and carried off to Morocco where the captain and crew were made slaves." 

… On June 20, 1631, the entire village of Baltimore, Ireland, "The Stolen Village," was captured by Muslim pirates. …

Morocco recognized the new country of the United States in 1785 by capturing two American ships and holding them for ransom. … Jefferson purchased a Qur'an to understand the enemy. Nearly 20 percent of the U.S. Federal budget was used for extortion payments, yet Muslims continued their piracy. … - Link to Website

“I think at the edge of our consciousness there is always the fear that perhaps indeed there is such a thing, we don’t believe it we Catholics do hold it and Christians in general do hold it but there is a consciousness there is some evil spirit at work it could be in our world And we are afraid of it. And that it can which is the belief in many parts of the world in many parts of the history of man there is the possibility of being possessed, one’s body dominated by such an evil spirit and being used for nefarious ends....

Usually the attempt to possess is through deception. We have in the North East corner of America since 1975 we’ve had a huge increase in the following type of possession. A young man, say thirty something, forty something, a young woman would come and say look when I was in college when I was in study when I took up residence as a doctor or lawyer where ever it I made a pact with the devil I needed money, I need a position and I asked him to help me and he did. But he took over my will and my mind now I want to get rid of it. How do I get rid of it? We have an increase in that phenomenon which I never thought I would see. Some don’t even believe in God some are Jewish are Buddhist some are Protestant some are Catholic there is no profile of the possessable person. If it has been taken up [intervention] has been taken up, then your only recourse is exorcism that we know of. There may be other recourses but we don’t know of any recourse except that. … The perfectly possessed we call the perfectly possessed are those that are perfectly at peace."

In fact, it would not be an exaggeration to claim that when liberals are in power—Congress, the presidency, and the courts—they invariably use their power in ways that are misguided in the short term and destructive in the long term. …  It is not just public education where liberals have undermined America’s institutions. The left has had the same kind of destructive influence on America’s culture, military, economy, and religion—or more accurately said—Christianity.”-  Link to Website

Definition: Any act by government or agents contrary to Constitution or law is a crime, not "just politics"!
— James H. Dearmore II – Preacher Baptist Missionary

“Progress has brought us both unbounded opportunities and unbridled difficulties. Thus, the measure of our civilization will not be that we have done much, but what we have done with that much. I believe that the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism. The thought of modern industry in the hands of Christian charity is a dream worth dreaming. The thought of industry in the hands of paganism is a nightmare beyond imagining. The choice between the two is upon us."
— Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) 26th President of the United States

Democrats Take First Steps to Shut Down this Website - by Dave Jolly - … thirteen House Democrats are trying to push a new bill, The Hate Crime Reporting Act (HR 3878), that will launch a new investigation into the use of hate language on the internet, mobile phones, television and radio.  When they say mobile phones, they are talking mostly about the social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and others…. That’s an interesting task since the First Amendment says nothing about forbidding hate language.  The First Amendment states:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” -  Link to Website

"Story-Killers: How the Common Core Destroys Minds and Souls" - Terrence O. Moore Professor of History, Hillsdale College - The Common Core Standards control the testing and curriculum of public schools and a large number of private schools in over forty states in the nation.

Hoosiers Against Common Core - Progressive education fortified under Common Core
Why the founding fathers assumed and needed an educated citizenry for a free republic vs. were we are we are going with Common Core and the ideologues. -- Dr. Terrence Moore, author of The Story Killers, gives a compelling case against progressive education. It’s a great follow up to my post about John Dewey and the destructive effect of progressive education in American schools. Just because you believe in climate change and other ideas housed under the progressive name, doesn’t mean you believe in progressive education. My most progressive friends always choose a very non-progressive education for their children. Moore gives a descriptive definition and details what
progressive education really means. It’s ugly.

Judges 2:10-13: The Opening of America’s Anti-Christian Chapter - by Linda Kimball - … "New" evangelicals are traveling the broad smooth road to compromise, syncretism, universalism and evolutionary pantheism taken years ago by mainline Protestantism.  Already some apostate evangelicals have embraced and are teaching pantheist conceptions of Jesus Christ.

“When also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers; and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which He had done for Israel.  Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger...they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths." 
Judges 2:10-13

He answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
Matthew 13:37-43  RSV

A Rebirth of Liberty and Learning – By Larry P. Arnn - There is a proper way to educate and there is a proper way to govern, and they are both known. Today we do these things in a different way, which presents a serious and perhaps fatal problem for our country. … The Bible tells us to “raise up a child in the way he should go.” But which way should he go? … “It depends on which way you want to go.” Young people today give that answer because they’ve been taught to give that answer. But it’s the wrong answer, and the activity of getting from there to the right answer—the activity of coming to know which way is the right way—is education. -  Link to Website

America's behavior has spiritual consequences - By Richard Rives - We cannot forsake commandments without being forsaken - The only way to prosper is to return to the commandments of our creator. Commandments which for the most part have been forsaken Removed by our schools and public buildings and glossed over by the majority of our churches. Just as in the Garden of Eden people are been persuaded that they can do right in their own eyes. They can be as God and decide what is good and what is evil.… Are we in arrogance to believe that we as a nation can continue to forsake the commandmens of our creator with out the eventuallyality of being forsaken ourselves. The commandments he wrote in stone pure they stand fast forever. It is in our best interst to keep them. -  Link to Website
