Paganism Redux



THOUGHT

For certain men stole in, those of old having been written before to this judgment, ungodly ones perverting the grace of our God into unbridled evil, and denying the only Lord God, and our Master - Jesus Christ.

(Jude 1:4)

          It seems the more time passes since Jesus was here in the flesh the more the people and Nations of the world war against what He taught - first and foremost that nothing is above YHWH and His Laws (that includes the US Government!). These wars have been legion. The wars began against pagans. Then the war with the perversion called Catholicism came; and, that has dragged on for millennia and continues to do so. Next, the war with the Sword of Islam that has raged for centuries without end; and, there is no end in sight. The more recent war against godless communism seems to be waning; but, it is not yet over. Last but not least is the worldwide war now being led by the US Government - a war which, for lack of a better term, I call Paganism Redux. We have come full circle with little to show for it.

          I concede that to lay Paganism Redux at the feet of the US Government may seem a stretch but consider a few things. First, consumerism and commercialism runs rampant worldwide due to US consumption and the envy it causes. The US Government both promotes and condemns this at the same time - worldwide. It squashes the freedoms of its own people (and their businesses) while handing cash out left and right worldwide - as long as the recipients are not “Christian”.

          The US supports both Israel and those who want to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth - e.g. the Palestinians. While at war with Islamic terrorists the US turned its back on Egypt for going against the Muslim Brotherhood! It supports other African nations whole heartedly but only if they adopt sexual standards approved of by the Department of LGBT. The US Government will support anybody except those seeking freedom to love and obey YHWH - then it is in attack mode. Hence the US Government leads the enemy troops of Paganism Redux.

Also, among the few that do not chase the almighty dollar is a growing group of folks that are more concerned with the created than they are the Creator. Some of these folks not only place nature over YHWH but seem to despise the only thing created in His image - mankind. They seem as bipolar as the US Government which promotes discord by such actions as banning smoking while paying farm subsidies to tobacco growers.

It is sad enough that the US Government has been stripping its own citizens of their God given rights; yet, it is worse that it is using its unholy power to try to enforce the new immorality on the entire world. The Superpower is Super Evil!

Mankind has become technologically advanced, morally retarded, and spiritually stagnant. Love for YHWH is rarer than gold and the US Government wants to take worldwide control of who can possess either of them - and how much they can have. Ironically, gold has become more common than “common sense” - especially among US Government officials. More examples abound but space and time limit the discourse.

The US Government would do well to remember that the Constitution was not written to give people or States their rights but to restrict the powers of the US Government. Go too far and it will be interesting to see which happens first - the Second Coming of Christ or the Third American Revolution.

PS - The States are 1-1. They won against the tyrants of the British Empire in the 1700’s. They lost to the tyrants of the US Government in the 1800’s (The War of Northern Aggression, also called the Civil War or The War Between the States, which was the Second American Revolution and the people lost. -- No I am not pro-slavery. I am pro-State’s Rights and pro-God Given Rights of the People!

 

QUOTE

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. - Thomas Jefferson

COMMENT: We have the right to believe what we want - even from YHWH. YHWH does not want robotic minions who offer obedience but not love. We have a God given right (and duty) to preach and teach YHWH’s way to others; and, this is protected by TWO Constitutional rights as well as - the right to free speech and the right to the free expression of religion. But, we do not have the right to force others or their children to abide, condone, accept or support any belief - nor they us. Yet the US Government is forcing just that. Party A can teach the Koran in public schools (under the guise of “cultural diversity!); but, Party B cannot teach the Bible. Party A can use the public schools to teach the Theory of Evolution but Party B cannot teach the Theory of Creation or the Theory of Intelligent Design; yet, the Constitution says we have the right to the free speech and the free expression of religion. Another example: YHWH says homosexuality is wrong; but, the US Government Department of LGBT has banned our Constitutional rights in favor of sexual immorality. This allows Party A to use the public schools to teach our children homosexuality is good but Party B cannot use the public schools to teach our children homosexuality is bad. The people and the Constitution have been betrayed yet again. A call to account is coming . . . from within and from above . . . are you ready?

NOTE: The Koran also teaches homosexuality is wrong - I guess they leave that part out at school!

DID YOU KNOW

The Catholic Church changed the Ten Commandments (as given to Moses). Research it or write for more detail (hint - it concerns Mary worship and Idolatry).

          Even before there were any Jews, or the written “Ten Commandments”, YHWH’s laws, rules, precepts, etc. were known to His people. (See below as well as article Lie #2)

          The vast majority of the people of the world adhere to religions that have a holy book condemning homosexuality - Christianity, Catholicism, and Judaism all have the Old Testament and Islam has the Koran. (And yet the US Government is still forcing the LGBT agenda down the throats of its own people and blackmailing other nations to accept it as a condition of US foreign aid!)

Many Jewish scholars believe the “Noahide laws”, which apply to all mankind, are comprised of six commandments which were given to Adam in the Garden of Eden (according to the Talmud's interpretation of Genesis 2:16) and a seventh precept was added after the commonly called “Flood of Noah”. Others believe the last two precepts were added after the Flood since Adam did not originally eat meat. You will find some variation in the interpretation of these precepts since they are not “spelled out” as clearly as the Ten Commandments and are often thought to be broader in scope - often combining several other more specific laws. The seven precepts are:

1.   Acknowledge YHWH - The prohibition against denying YHWH is the Creator and the Supreme Being.

2.   Respect YHWH - The prohibition against worshipping anything or anyone but YHWH. This includes not taking his name in vain, not worshipping idols, remembering His Sabbath, etc.

3.   The prohibition against murder.

4.   The prohibition against theft.

5.   The prohibition against sexual immorality. This includes incestuous, adulterous, bestial or homosexual relationships.

6.   The prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive.

7.   The requirement of maintaining courts to administer justice.

COMMENT: Please note that the seventh precept concerns a subject not covered by the Ten Commandments - it concerns governance. This is yet another example of Paul’s failure to adhere to the ways of YHWH - Paul, as a false teacher, taught that YHWH’s Laws were done away with but obedience to man’s laws was required. The truth is that YHWH’s Laws - as Jesus told us - will not change until Heaven and Earth have passed away. Man’s laws are only valid if they comply with the Laws of YHWH.

American Greatness Replaced by . . .


THOUGHT

          Where did American greatness come from - and where did it go? There are a lot of reasons why the US became the great nation it was in its early history. Few folks seldom seem to give thought to them so the greatness, like the reasons, is fading.  One of the reasons often given is the belief the US started as a Christian nation. For several decades now that belief has been suppressed completely or supplanted by the notion that many of the Founding Fathers were deists not Christians. Remember the quotes from the founding fathers over the last few weeks? Can any deny the US was founded on principles espoused in the Bible? Even those who held a belief in a Supreme Being but not Jesus cited the need for ethics and morals as espoused by the Bible and wanted the free exercise of religion as sought by the majority - which was comprised of a variety of groups claiming a base in Christianity. (See the Did You Know section below for proof.) Nowadays American greatness, like Constitutional rights and the Bible, is being suppressed by the US government.

          Religious freedom was being sought by many folks in many nations during the era of America’s founding so there had to be more to it for the US to achieve what it did. Interestingly another major facet of the birth of US greatness was due to a phenomenon related to Christianity as well - the growing literacy rate. The Bible was and is the most published book in the history of the world; and, it is safe to say that every school in the US prior to the 20th Century used it as a primary reader. It would have been practically impossible for a child to learn to read without being exposed to the lessons taught in the Bible. Practically every institution of higher learning had a religious foundation too. This phenomenon was not restricted to the US but it was far more prevalent and institutionalized than elsewhere. Today the Bible is being banned by the US Government from the entire US educational system - an act akin to book burning, yet insidiously more subtle, that is as detrimental to greatness as it is to morals and freedom.

          Finally we come to yet another related issue that was and is a phenomenon that is more American than mom and apple pie - the public library. Books were primarily the domain of the rich and powerful prior to the era of the founding of the US. The Founding Fathers were well read men; but, ironically, many Kings were illiterate! The Protestant Reformation, and the subsequent battles fought to publish the Bible in the languages of the people, did lead to a boon in the number of privately owned Bibles but few folks could afford to own many other books. What few folks today realize is that most all America’s forefathers realized the need for knowledge to increase apace with freedom. The concept of educating the common man had a purpose; and, the recognition of this purpose continued for quite a time. Consider the following:

"It is no part of the duty of the municipality to raise taxes for the amusement of the people, unless the amusement is tolerably clearly seen to be conducive to higher ends of good citizenship, like the encouragement of patriotism, the promotion of public health, or the undermining of immorality." Trustees of the Boston Public Library, 23rd Annual Report (SEE NOTE1)

          So how does all this tie together? Notice that while religion is not mentioned in the preceding citation the issue of morality is; and, it was clearly tied to good citizenship. The freedom to choose comes with the resposinility to learn enough to make wise choices.

In modern day America the government considers a citizen good only if they are willing to accept immorality! The US government forces not only acceptance of immorality but support for it as well. When a baker refused to bake a wedding cake for an immoral couple the LGBT Mafia was ecstatic to see the Government take the lead and punish the baker. The same thing happened to a wedding photographer in a similar situation. Is it any wonder that the greatness is fading?

Many today call the US Constitution a living document yet the 1st Amendment right to the freedom of religion AND the free exercise thereof is being treated as an infected appendage and is being amputated. Immorality is rampant and its acceptance and support is being mandated by law and enforced on pain of loss of life and liberty.

Like a stainless steel knife with the chrome and temper removed the US government has removed biblical principles and morality and the results are the same - tarnish and rust are setting in, the strength is gone, the once keen edge is fading.

NOTE1 - What a wonderful concept too is the relationship between determining the expenditure of tax dollars and the forming of good citizenship. I for one will never understand the folks today claiming a “right” to a free, tax dollar funded, cell phone - or their getting it with ongoing free monthly service at taxpayer expense!

The lazy, the cowardly, and the morally bankrupt continue to surrender the “power of the people” to would be tyrants in exchange for access to the pockets and futures of those who try to lead a decent, productive, and moral life. There is a distinct dearth of those willing to risk the wrath of these tyrants to wrest back the rights our forefathers fought and died to bequeath to us.

America, once the “land of the free and the home of the brave” has become the land of the ungodly and the home of the coerced.

QUOTE

If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed. -- Albert Einstein

COMMENT: In the spiritual realm true worshippers obey YHWH out of love, awe, and respect - not out of fear of punishment.

In the physical realm the US Government, afraid of the righteous indignant, punishes the moral and rewards the immoral - and is a sorry lot in deed! The American Justice (an oxymoron) system has become a farcical travesty largely administered by sycophantical degenerates serving immoral political factions (e.g. LGBT Mafia) and their agendas rather than justice.

DID YOU KNOW

A spouse behind on child support payments loses their passport but murders, rapists, etc., - even terrorists - can keep theirs.

You do not have to have ID to vote for who will have their hand on the buttons to launch nuclear weapons but you do to exercise your Constitutional right to keep & bear arms!

A driver who has two drinks and drives without hurting anyone will be punished harsher than an adulterer, a sodomite, and even many burglars, robbers, child molesters, etc.

Illegal aliens, felons by definition, are given “rights” a citizen just accused of a felony is not allowed to keep - even though those are rights are constitutionally guaranteed to the citizen.

Native born Islamic terrorists are being tried as criminals (e.g. charged for workplace violence) while many American citizens are being arrested for protesting abortion and are being charged for terrorism!

Foreign born Islamic terrorists are being given the full rights and protections of the US Constitution and tried in civilian courts as criminals rather than enemy combatants in military tribunals.

That a Christian, exercising their constitutionally protected right to the free exercise of religion, can be arrested and imprisoned for telling their own child that the actions of a homosexual adult are an abomination to God according to the Bible; yet, the homosexual, can tell any child, including yours, that you are an abomination of nature and an ignorant bigot and then proceed to give children sexual material (e.g. condoms) and encourage them to try homosexual acts; and, the homosexual is not only protected by the US Government but encouraged to commit such acts! It is even possible the Government will force you to make financial payments to any homosexual offended by overhearing your words - as restitution for hate speech!

There is no mention of a separation of church and state mentioned in the US Constitution. In fact practically every State originally had a State supported Religion - Christianity:

Virginia Declaration of Rights 1776

"That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore, all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other."

Immigration Abomination in Obama nation


SEP 28, 2014 Posting

 

THOUGHT

 

          The Chinese have a saying, “May you live in interesting times”. This can be a blessing or a curse. Either way few can deny that the era we are living in is one of rapid and not so subtle changes. The US continues to become a more divided nation over many issues of which immigration is but one. It is a challenging issue.

          When the issue of immigration comes up it seems a lot of effort intentionally goes into keeping the turmoil centered on illegal immigration; and, this diverts attention away from an equally dangerous facet of the subject - the legal immigrants.

          Under the Obama administration the entire picture has been changing with little notice. It is more than a matter of “from where” and “how many”. Folks from around the globe have been risking life and limb for centuries just for the chance to participate in the “American way of life”. There are still many who do so - legal and illegally. However, under the Obama Administration the math alone does not reveal the dangerous agenda that has been being carried out. It is also a matter of who, what, why and how they are coming here.

          Illegal immigrants may not be the greatest danger in the long run even though it is troubling that an increasing number of the illegals coming here are perpetrating other nefarious acts as well - purposely or under duress from the cartels. The greater danger is from the legal immigrants that have no desire to be “American”. That is the “who” that is literally infiltrating the US.

          Increasingly the majority of legal immigrants are Muslims - not just from the Middle East but from Asia and Africa as well. That is the “what” that is infiltrating the US.

          Increasingly the majority of these legal immigrants have no desire to be “Americans” but; rather, they desire to change the fabric of the US to that of a Muslim nation. Gone are the days of an influx of immigrants all seeking a “better way of life”. The new immigrants do not want to be remade in the image of an American. No, they want to remake America in their image. The media would have us believe they are coming here to escape repressive regimes that enforce draconian sharia laws; yet, in every area where these legal immigrants form a concentrated population we see lawsuits and court actions reflecting a push to employ sharia law over “American” civil and criminal laws based on the Constitution. They are covertly using words, money, and political influence to take over the US from within while their more radical Muslim brethren employ overt warfare against the US as well. That is the “why” that is literally flooding the US.

The communist of the Soviet era believed they could destroy the West from within by selling the capitalistic West the rope to hang itself - they tried a few generations too soon. The Muslims seem to be employing perfect timing. Though to be fair to the Communists they did not have the full backing and support of the Obama Administration the way the Muslims do. Perhaps that is why Putin is pushing Russian expansion now while the US has no leadership.

          Last but not least is the “how” that is flooding the US. Herein the greatest danger festers in the shadows while debate rages over “illegal immigration”. Many of these new immigrants are not so much trying to reach the US but rather they are being selected to be brought here by the Administration under the guise of “refugee status”. Compare the total number of Christian refugees allowed to enter the US from Sudan with the number of Muslim refugees being brought over on a monthly basis from Somalia. Can anyone tell me the last time a Sudanese Christian killed a US citizen just for being an “American”? As a veteran that was in Somalia I will never forget the Somali Muslims that killed our men and paraded the bodies through the streets!

          Illegal immigration is dangerous - it is as if the US is about to founder yet continues to ignore the steady seep of incoming water. To make matters worse the water trickling in may very well be contaminated to the point that even arresting the flow will not remove the danger of catastrophe. Yet even without illegal immigration the ship will eventually sink if the parameters of legal immigration do not change. Recent legal immigration is a creating an incremental and insidious erosion of the glue that makes America American - the Constitution and the Christian values that support it.

 

PS - Regardless of a piece of paper (or lack thereof) Obama, if he is an American, is a traitor! By law he has committed treason by supplying money and weapons to organizations on the list of terrorist organizations - a feat which has landed many in jail during peace time. Obama should not be assassinated or impeached: As Commander in Chief he should be legally executed by a military firing squad for committing treason during wartime.

         

QUOTE

          “What constitutes an American? Not color nor race nor religion. Not the pedigree of his family nor the place of his birth. Not the coincidence of his citizenship. Not his social status nor his bank account. Not his trade nor his profession. An American is one who loves justice and believes in the dignity of man. An American is one who will fight for his freedom and that of his neighbor. An American is one who will sacrifice property, ease and security in order that he and his children may retain the rights of free men. An American is one in whose heart is engraved the immortal second sentence of the Declaration of Independence.”
― Harold Ickes

 

COMMENT: I live in Arizona so see the damage being done to the US everyday by illegal immigration. That said I have also personally travel to over forty different countries, including Somalia, and would take an illegal from south of the border over a Muslim Somali any day. It is insane that the US is purposely flooding its own cities (Minneapolis, etc. for the Somalis) with legal immigrants that, for the most part, would love to see the US converted to an Islamic State. At least most of the illegals from down south come to the US searching for the “American Dream” and not as a people that despise the US in general.

 

DID YOU KNOW

 

Iraq, Iran, Eritrea and Somalia all rank in the top ten as nations of origin for overall US immigration for almost every year Obama has been in power. Number wise Iraqis and Somalis are #2 and #3 respectively for the last decade!

Since Obama took over the number of Muslims from Africa, compared to other regions, has increased 300%.

Almost 2/3’s of the total US Muslim population is comprised of immigrants entering under the Obama Administration.

Since Obama took power annual legal immigrants from the Middle East outnumber those from Central America.

PS - The second sentence of the Declaration of Independence is: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Failing the Founding Fathers


THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

 

          The US claims a proud history of being a nation blessed by YHWH and of never having had a dictator, a tyrant, or a coup. Many would deny the validity of those claims; but, can any deny the US is crumbling along with most of the rest of the world. For the last few generations the US and the world have been paying the price for the US’s attempts at “nation building” and “spreading democracy” while simultaneously abandoning biblical morals internally. The US cannot build another up while disintegrating itself; and, the US has never been, nor was it designed to be, a democracy.

So what went wrong? How did this great experiment, of a capitalistic constitutional republic for a free and equal people, which began by men with a strong sense of biblical morality (See Note1), end up where it is now? I would posit the first step on the slippery slope to implosion began over a hundred years ago. Lincoln was accused by many of acting the tyrant and it cannot be denied he ignored the Constitution and abused the Rights of the States. After Lincoln, membership in the Republic was no longer voluntary - it was join or else (like Islam & Sharia Law). Under FDR came the drifting away from “laissez faire” capitalism to “New Deal” socialism (see section nine here for an example) - a change in political as well as economic philosophy. Johnson continued this assault with the “Great Society” programs. (There are even those who believe Johnson led the first coup via the killing of Kennedy.) By this time social equality began trumping individual morality as a national expectation. Economically the final nail in that coffin came with Nixon’s financial fiasco - the final and full rejection of the gold standard. Politically, the latest assault on the Constitution (and perhaps the fatal one) is being waged by the Obama administration. Obama, with his pen and his phone, is pushing the boundaries of president/dictator: His consistent indecision may be all that is delaying his utter destruction of the US.

          The US is woefully in need of folks of the caliber that started the Republic. These were exceptional men who studied history and knew that democracy does not work on a mass scale. A Constitution was needed; but, a Constitution would only be as strong as the morals of those applying it (again See Note1). These were men that understood that individual freedom must triumph over government authority - e.g. monarchy and freedom do not work well together. They also understood socialism did not work well with freedom: Placing too heavy a social burden on a people eroded their individual freedoms. As an experiment, the Founders created a Constitutional Republic supported by a free market capitalistic economy. The nation and “freedom” would last as long as they were supported by a moral, hardworking people.

          The key issue as to why the US is going downhill (fast!) is the same reason that “US methods” do not work when transplanted to most other nations. The methods were designed for people with morals based on the biblical principles of YHWH and a deep sense of individual freedom AND responsibility. Too may “Americans” today have little to no morals and economically expect to be cared for from cradle to grave - with maximum freedom and no responsibility. Too many Americans demand, not freedom of religion, but the freedom to ban the “free exercise thereof” for biblically based religion.

          Consider the Pledge of Allegiance:

                    “I pledge allegiance” -- How many Americans still actually say or mean this pledge. CBS just rejected an advertisement as being “too political” because it had a young girl’s recitation of the Pledge! A US Army veteran was banned from reciting the Pledge at a US taxpayer funded public university because it might offend foreign students! Where is American loyalty? Theodore Roosevelt railed against Hyphenated Americans (PDF) - or in modern times against terms like African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, etc. - with divided loyalties. A clear cut example of disloyalty is that the Obama administration continues to bring thousands of Somalis to the US every year - most with loyalty to the Islamic terrorists the US has been under attack from for decades! These people want to eventually kill everyone who holds the biblical values that built the US!

                    And to the Republic for which it stands” -- The US no longer stands as a republic. Few citizens even know what the word means much less that the US was supposed to be a republic and not a democracy. Ben Franklin warned that the new nation would only have - “A republic, if you can keep it.”

                    Under God” -- God, in most any form, is being shunned in public discourse. YHWH is being banned from the workplace, the court room, etc. In public education YHWH is not just banned but is being replaced, by law in many cases, by Allah.

                    “With Liberty and Justice for All” -- Worshippers of YHWH no longer have the liberty of the Constitutionally guaranteed right to the “free exercise thereof” of their religion - the very religious basis the Founding Fathers knew was required for the success of the Republic! It is illegal now to teach, in public schools, the very same biblical principles that, again, the Founding Fathers knew were required for the success of the Republic!

          The people of the US are learning a hard lesson that the “Father of the Country” warned them of: “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” - George Washington

          The US has always been a nation of multi-cultural diversity; but, it was held together by a majority with a common set of principles supporting the Constitution and the Republic. As Alexander Hamilton said, For my own part, I sincerely esteem it a system which without the finger of God never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interests”. (See Luke 11:20)

It may not yet be too late. As with Nineveh (Jonah 3:8-10) the US may still have time before YHWH’s justice is meted out. SPEAK OUT! Stand up for and serve YHWH and His principles. YOU ARE a part of the solution or a part of the problem. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

QUOTE

“Rebels, especially successful rebels, were of necessity bad subjects and worse governors.” --

Seven Pillars of Wisdom -- T.E. Lawrence

          COMMENT: What does the US hope to accomplish in the Middle East? The people of the US need to focus on the US Government’s War on YHWH and not on fighting one Islamists group to prop up the governments of other Islamist groups. Not a single nation in the Middle East has come close to achieving a stable government over a free and equal people - except Israel. This should come as no surprise. It is historically the only time that the world has seen a government over a free and equal people with biblical morality as the basis for the majority. (The US did not qualify for the “Free and Equal” for most of its early history and as the people became more equal they also became less biblically moral - and without such morals the “experiment” is doomed to failure.)

DID YOU KNOW

There is no mention of a separation of Church and State in the Constitution. READ IT!

In the Wikipedia section entitled “Hyphenated American” it is so politically correct it never even mentions the most modern and divisive examples of “Hyphenated Americans” which are the African-American and the Mexican-American. One of which the US government practically mandates the use of!

          In public education in the US quoting the Bible is shunned if not forbidden while quoting the Koran, the Vedas, etc. are promoted as “expressions of cultural sensitivity”. The same goes for quoting Jesus versus Buddha, the Dalai Lama, Confucius, etc.

          The Founding Fathers did not believe in democracy as a viable form of government: They believed in a Constitutional Republic - read the quotes below!

Note1 - Entire books could be, and have been, filled with quotes that prove our forbearers knew the US would be doomed if it turned away from biblical principles - here are but a few I consider to be salient:

George Washington

Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.

John Adams

We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.

Samuel Adams

Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. --- Comment: And now a major beer producer uses his name to support the LGBT Mafia!

James Madison

We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.

Benjamin Franklin

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.

Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof. --- Comment: Note that the States should act (a republic) - not that Uncle Sam should force action!

Benjamin Rush

          The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.

We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by the means of the Bible. For this Divine Book, above all others, favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws, and those sober and frugal virtues, which constitute the soul of republicanism.

By renouncing the Bible, philosophers swing from their moorings upon all moral subjects. . . . It is the only correct map of the human heart that ever has been published. . . . All systems of religion, morals, and government not founded upon it [the Bible] must perish, and how consoling the thought, it will not only survive the wreck of these systems but the world itself.

Patrick Henry

The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.

William Penn

If thou wouldst rule well, thou must rule for God, and to do that, thou must be ruled by him… Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants. – (Penn was imprisoned for writing this tract.)

Daniel Webster

If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity.

Noah Webster

The Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.

Charles Carroll

Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime & pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and [which] insured to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments. --- Comment: The death  of morals leads to the death of duration; and, historically the US is a newborn babe.

Robert Winthrop

Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.

          And finally, for the ladies out there J:

Abigail Adams

A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations bind, can have any real Good Will towards Men? Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of Society? . . . The Scriptures tell us ‘righteousness exalteth a Nation.' --- Comment: Proverbs 14:34 - Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.

 

Closing Comment: The central theme is clear - the freedom and liberty of the people of the US was based and built on a Constitutional Republic and the people would have to maintain a biblical moral standard to have any hope of staying a free people. As biblical morals collapse so too will the US.

I love my country and the form of government it was built on; but, I fear the modern monster it has become. It is as a servant of satan and an enemy of YHWH and of freedom. There is a reason 1 in 4 Americans would support their State seceding from the federal government - which is a State right granted in the Constitution.

The end of the US before the end of the world is not inevitable - even if it takes a Second American Revolution of these United States. The people must take the pen from the hand of the government. The pen now, or the sword soon - or the death of the US is, then, inevitable.
