The Progressives Are Destroying America

Geneva Bible
Image via Wikipedia

When the Pilgrims stepped off the Mayflower, they brought the Bible with them. The reason they came here and endured such great hardship was this: They wanted their children to live in a society that was governed by Biblical principles. And their descendents, the Founding Fathers, fulfilled that dream.  They invented a new form of government. And they gave us a nation where we are  free to practice our religion and to govern ourselves.

American exceptionalism is the result of God’s blessing. And the Liberty that we enjoy today is a by-product of Christianity.

Throughout history, our leaders warned us that “Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” (Wm Penn) And “It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.”(Patrick Henry) “You can’t enslave a Bible-reading people.” (Horace Greeley) And the Bible was America’s textbook for the first three hundred and fifty years of our existence.

Noah Webster was the greatest American educator who ever lived. Look at what he wrote in his public school textbook, “History of the United States” in 1832: “The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and his apostles, which enjoins humility, piety, and benevolence; which acknowledges in every person a brother, or a sister, and a citizen with equal rights. This is genuine Christianity, and to this we owe our free Constitutions of Government.”

He was writing to school children. He gave them the following advice, and his words turned out to be prophetic:

“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty.

If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for the selfish or local purposes; Corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded.

If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”

The Progressives measure our “progress” by how far we’ve departed from the teachings of the Bible. Look how how far we have progressed, in their eyes, in the past fifty years! The Ten Commandments are banned in public buildings. And it’s illegal to read the Bible in the public schools.

We were naive enough to let the Progressives remove the Bible from our culture. They knew they had to take our Bibles away before they could enslave us. They tell us there’s no such thing as truth, or liberty that comes from God. They want their government to be our god, and they want to make slaves of us all.

Why are they so afraid of the Bible? What’s in there that scares them so muchl?  It is the truth. And the truth is their enemy. They can’t stand it, and they can’t stand up to it. To them, truth is like Kryptonite to Superman.

Dedicated to Satan

The National Education Association once listed Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, as recommended reading, especially for those who want to “make a difference.” The reviewer goes on and on about what a great man Alinsky was.

Did Alinsky make a difference? Sure he did, but it was a negative and destructive one. He made a huge contribution to the destruction of the United States of America through this book. Alinsky’s followers have used his principles to advance their dream of an Atheist and Marxist America.

If you have a copy of it, take a look at the dedication page. Or, just Google it like I did.  You will see that Alinsky actually dedicated his book to the Devil:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.” –Saul Alinsky

When I first saw this, I was horrified. But at least, he came right on out with it. This a handbook for people who hate God, hate Christianity, and hate America.

It’s too bad that Saul Alinsky never read the Bible or believed it. He would have known about Lucifer’s ultimate fate, along with everyone who is deceived by him and worships him. They’re all going to be cast into the Lake of Fire, which is the second death.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:10

Schoolteachers can’t have a copy of the Bible on their desk, or even read it on their lunch break. But this anti-Christian and anti-American book is recommended reading for teachers! And it’s dedicated to the devil! They can’t teach the Ten Commandments, because they are from the Bible. But the NEA wants their teachers to read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

Okay, so now I get it. Secularism, Marxism, Atheism, that is the official state religion. It really doesn’t have a name. It’s a coalition of everything that opposes Christianity, and America. And Rules for Radicals is their Bible. But what are they doing?

These are not nice people. They’re wicked evil men who want to enslave you and your children. They’re completely serious about the “fundamental transformation of America.” They want to transform America into a Socialist state.

They know that Capitalism produces prosperity and Socialism produces poverty. They want all of us to live in poverty.

That’s because poverty-stricken people are easy to manipulate. You can buy them for a piece of bread. That’s why the Secular Progressives, aka Marxists, Socialists, and Liberals want to do away with Capitalism.

They want to confiscate everything we’ve got. And make slaves of us all.

George Washington Believed in The God of The Bible

English: George Washington presiding over the ...

English: George Washington presiding over the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention Česky: George Washington předsedající Filadelskému ústavnímu konventu (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Every schoolchild in America used to know about the impeccable character and bravery of George Washington. He actually led his men into battle from the front.
One of the Indian Chiefs who fought against George Washington in the French and Indian War wanted to meet the man he called “the bulletproof general.” He said that he had personally shot at Washington several times, but the bullets never touched him. In one battle alone, he had three horses shot from under him.
George Washington was the Father of our Country; and he said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” He reminded the delegates at the Constitutional Convention that without Divine Intervention, we would not have won our independence in the Revolutionary War.
Here are some excerpts from the speech that General Washington gave his troops at the beginning of the War:

“The time is now near at hand, which must probably determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them.

“The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of a brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer, or to die. . . .

“Let us, then rely on the goodness of our cause, and the aid of the Supreme Being, in whose hands victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble actions. . . .

“Liberty, property, life, and honor are all at stake; upon your courage and conduct rest the hopes of our bleeding and insulted country. Our wives, children, and parents expect safety from us alone, and they have every reason to believe that Heaven will crown with success so just a cause. . . .

Benjamin Franklin’s Call for Prayer

Portrait of Benjamin FranklinImage via Wikiped

Benjamin Franklin was 81 years old at the time of the Constitutional Convention. He knew that God helped us to defeat the most powerful military force in the world, Great Britain, and win our independence from them.

The delegates to the Constitutional Convention were unable to agree on anything at first. Then, Franklin reminded them that they were all Christians; and they adopted his motion to begin each session by praying together. With God’s help, they created the United States Constitution. They invented a new form of government that had never existed before. Nobody has ever devised a government that is better than ours.  The world has never seen a richer, more powerful, caring and compassionate nation that The United States of America. We have more freedom here than anywhere else on earth.

This is part of what Benjamin Franklin’s speech to the men who founded the United States of America.

“How has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine Protection.

Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. . . . And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance.

I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth–that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?

We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that ‘except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.’ I firmly believe this; . . . “

Benjamin Franklin was well known for his wisdom. He knew for a fact that God helped us to win the Revolutionary war. There is no doubt that he believed in God; and that he was well-acquainted with the Bible. Without God and Benjamin Franklin, the United States of America would not exist.

The Bible Is God’s Word

4335840947_14026b2da5

The ideas that are in the Bible originated in the mind of God. It’s true that men wrote the Bible, but God told them what to say. He is actually the author of the Bible.

The Bible says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16)

It also says, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:21)

If you believe that the Bible is the word of God, then you know the truth about life, and about God and the universe. You are way ahead of the old philosophers, the spiritually dead, and the children of the Devil—who have no hope in this world, or in the world to come.

I feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t believe what the Bible says. Many of them are brilliant people. They have genius IQ’s, and degrees from Harvard and Yale. They are educators, scientists, and humanitarians. They are CEO’s of major corporations, and self-made billionaires. They are Senators, Congressmen, and Presidents of the United States.

The Bible says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) It also says, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God, created he him: male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:27)

It doesn’t matter how smart, or how rich people are. It doesn’t matter what their position  is. If they don’t know that God created the universe, it doesn’t matter what else they know.

We Are Still a Christian Nation

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

America has always been a place of religious freedom for all. But, the vast majority of the American people are Christians, not Atheists or Agnostics.

In spite of the enemy’s attempts to eliminate Christianity in America, we are still a Christian nation. A Rassmussen survey found that 79% of American adults believe that Jesus rose from the dead.  http://freerepublic.com/focus/news/2227122/posts

Americans also believe that the Bible is the word of God. Rassmussen found that 63% of of American adults believe that the Bible is the word of Godhttp://wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=43957

How about that! It turns out that we’re not losing the culture war after all, we are winning it; and more importantly, God is winning the hearts and minds of the American people, one person at a time.

The Missing Ingredient in American Life

Geneva Bible
Image via Wikipedia

Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. (Hosea 4:1)

God goes on to say, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)

These scriptures certainly apply to the United States of America. They accurately describe what we are lacking—truth, love, and knowledge of God. The major difficulties that we face—our economic crisis, our run-away government, and the war on terror—are  just symptoms of the real problem, which is a lack of knowledge of God. We don’t know him and we don’t know what he says in the Bible.

The Bible was America’s textbook until it was banned from our public schools. Now, the majority of Americans know nothing about it. The Bible is the greatest treasure we have. It is the source of essential truths that everyone needs to know, to save them from destruction. Here are some examples:

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

How I Became a Christian Author

When I was twenty-one years old, I served in the Army in Vietnam; and I thank God that my name is not on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington. I thought that I got away scot-free, but thirty years later, I was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic-Stress-Order.

PTSD is like the devil. It steals your joy and it steals your life. My doctors saw that I couldn’t control my anger, and they took me off work. So, I spent a year on sick leave, and then took a disability retirement.

American soldiers never “retreat.” We just “fall back and regroup,” and that’s what I had to do. I was in trouble, and I needed God’s help. I spent that year reading the Bible from cover-to-cover

I didn’t know what I was doing at the time; but I was fellowshipping with God in his word. I became fascinated with what I was reading. I copied down all of the Bible verses that jumped out at me, and put them together in a book. That book became The Bible Believer’s Handbook, my first published work.

When you’ve read an author’s work, you feel like you know him; because he reveals his heart and his mind through his words. This is especially true of God, who is the Author of the Bible.

I had swerved into doing what the following passage of Scripture says. I was delighting in the law of the Lord, and meditating on it day and night. I became like the man described in this Psalm; and that put me on a collision course with the blessing of God.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:1-3)

It took the Federal bureaucracy a  long time to process my retirement. My sick leave ran out, and I had no income. When my savings ran out, I was at the end of my rope.  I was old, and broke, and too sick to work; and I didn’t know if I would ever work again. I had  hit rock bottom.

I knew that God was my only hope. I cried out in desperation, “Jesus, please help me!” Jesus heard my prayer and he answered it right away.

The first thing that he did was to eliminate my anger. When I went to bed, I was mad at the world, just like always; but when I woke up, my anger was gone. That intense anger, which had been my constant companion for years, had  just disappeared. Jesus took it away, and he replaced it with joy and peace. I knew that I had experienced a miracle!

I heard somebody laughing, and then, I realized that it was me. I hadn’t laughed in years. Jesus healed me, just like he healed all of those people in the Bible. I was like blind Bartimaeus, who cried out to Jesus, “Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me!” (Mark 10:47) I had done the same thing that he did, and I got the same result. I had acknowledged that Jesus is the Messiah, and cried out to him for help; and he had mercy on me too.

This Psalm is an accurate description of  what Jesus did for me, and I will never stop thanking him for it. “I waited patiently for the Lord: and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of miry pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and trust in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:1-3)

The next thing that Jesus did was to put me back to work. He gave me a better job, with better pay. I didn’t do anything to deserve his help, but he helped me anyway. That’s who he is and what he does. He is our Savior. He does the things for us that we cannot do for ourselves.

Jesus is your Savior too. He loves you and he cares about you. If you’re in trouble, call on him and he will help you too.

I can assure you that everything that Jesus says is true: “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” (John 14:21)

Hey Sleeping Giant, Wake Up!

Tea Party Protest, Washington D.C. September 1...

Tea Party Protest, Washington D.C. September 12, 2009 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’m sure that the Founding Fathers never envisioned a Federal government that would be hostile to Christianity. They created a nation where government, education, and Christianity worked together to protect the right of every individual to  life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Dr. Benjamin Rush was the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence. He set up some of the first public schools in America, to teach children how to read the Bible. Noah Webster was known as the Schoolmaster of the Republic. His dictionary of the American language was published in 1828; and his Blue-Backed Speller was the most widely used textbook in America for over a hundred years. He practically invented American education.

Noah Webster said, “Every civil government is based upon some religion or philosophy of life. Education in a nation will propagate the religion of that nation. In America, the foundational religion was Christianity.

And it was sown in the hearts of Americans through the home and private and public schools for centuries. Our liberty, growth, and prosperity was the result of a Biblical philosophy of life.

Our continued freedom and success is dependent on our educating the youth of America in the principles of Christianity.”

When the Supreme Court kicked God and the Bible out of our public schools, they eliminated the most essential part education. This was the beginning of America’s  moral and economic decline. Since that time, as a nation, we have been getting dumber everyday.

The Secular Progressives measure progress by how far we’ve departed from Christianity. They know they have to take away our Bibles before they can take away our freedom. They have destroyed the most effective education system in the world, and recreated it into their own image. Now they want to completely destroy our unique American culture. They never stop trying to discredit the Bible, and to eliminate all references to the God who created us.

These enemies of God tried to change the Shining City on a Hill into their own Brave New World; but they have failed miserably. In spite of everything they’ve done, the Spirit of the Lord is alive and well in the hearts of the American people.

We are a nation of Bible-believing Christians. A USA Today/Gallup poll says that seventy-nine percent (79%) of Americans believe that the Bible is the word of God; and according to Rassmussen Reports, seventy-seven percent (77%) of Americans believe that Jesus rose from the dead.

That translates into millions and millions of right-thinking voters. If we could wake up this Sleeping Giant, we could restore God and the Bible to their rightful place of authority. Hey, Sleeping Giant, wake up! Wake up and help save America! Wake up and vote!

The Bible says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” (Psalm 29:2)  We have certainly experienced that reality.

Our lawmakers in Washington are terribly arrogant people, and they have the mentality of pimps. They think that the money we earn  is theirs; and they want to spend it all. In fact, they have already spent it all. They have spent our children’s money before they’ve even earned it.

It’s not too late to put an end to all of this foolishness. Clint Eastwood was right. We are the owners of this country; and the politicians work for us. We can fire them all, and replace them with people who will do what we want them to do. That would be a refreshing change.

We’re winning the culture war, not losing it; and we can certainly take our country back–at the ballot box.  We have a powerful ally; and with him, all things are possible. The Lord of Hosts is his name, and his mercy endures forever. We can do all things through him because he strengthens us.

This November’s election will determine the future of America and the future of your children. Please vote on November 6th. Even if you never vote, do it just this once. Do it for God and country. God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

The Ten Commandments in America

Moses with the tablets of the Ten Commandments...

Moses with the tablets of the Ten Commandments, painting by Rembrandt (1659) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

The Ten Commandments are the best laws ever devised, because they came from God. They are the foundation on which America stands. The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and the Bill of Rights are based on God’s precepts. The Declaration of Independence says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

When God gave us the Ten Commandments, he promised that if we obeyed them, “it will be well with thee, and ye may increase mightily.”

“Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”  (Deuteronomy 6:3-7)

Fifty years ago, every school child in America was familiar with the Ten Commandments. Now they’ve been forgotten, because it’s illegal to teach them in public schools. Here are the forbidden teachings of God, the Ten Commandments, that are banned by the same Federal government that is based on them.

“I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:  But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Neither shalt thou steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife,  thou shalt not covet thy neighbours’s  manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox,  nor his ass,  nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.” (Exodus 20:2-17)

The Ten Commandments are a gift from God. He ordered us to teach them to our children. When we observed God’s commandments, we enjoyed his blessing. In fact, God has blessed America more than any nation that has ever existed. Why? Because, we are his people and our nation was founded on his word. God did exactly what the Bible said he would do. This is an accurate description of the blessings we used to enjoy:

“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.

And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:” (Deuteronomy 28:1-13 )

We used to be blessed in the city and blessed in the field. Our enemies feared us because we were stronger than them. We were the head and not the tail. We loaned money to many nations, instead of borrowing it from them. Now, everything is reversed. We are cursed in the city and cursed in the field. Our enemies are attacking us at home and mocking us for our weakness and lack of wisdom. We are the tail and not the head. We are borrowing trillions of dollars from other nations.

So, where did we go wrong? Our government turned against God, and abandoned the Ten Commandments. However, there are millions and millions of Christians in America, and we are free to observe them as we worship the Lord.

If we seek him and keep his commandments, he will bless us and heal our land. We are not like any other nation. We are God’s people. America is still the land of the free and the home of the brave. All we have to do is act like who we are.

The Bible says that the things that happened to the Children of Israel were examples for us. God told them, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Life is obeying the Lord, and death is rebelling against him. The Children of Israel chose death. The whole nation rebelled against God, except for Joshua and Caleb. God always rewards those who obey him, and punishes those who rebel against him. He was merciful to the Children of Israel and provided for their basic needs, but they had lost their reward. They missed the Promised Land and had to wander around in the wilderness until they died.

Their children went into the Promised Land, led by Joshua and Caleb. God made them into a mighty nation. But, eventually, they turned against the Lord and worshipped other gods. That is when they lost everything:  The nation of Israel was lost, the Temple was destroyed, the gold of the Temple were carried away to Babylon, and God’s people went into slavery. America could face a similar fate—except for one thing. We have a very powerful ally, the One True and Living God. We are members of his family through Jesus Christ, and everyone who opposes him loses.

He is the Creator of the Universe. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is The LORD your God. He made America a mighty nation. He will fight for us, just like he did in the American Revolution.

Our times are like those that Americans faced in 1776. A tyrannical government was confiscating everything they had. American Patriots had to take drastic action to keep themselves and their children from being slaves to their government. They fought and won the liberty that we still enjoy today. They shed their blood for us. They were with God, and God was with them.

Now, we are facing the most important Presidential election in our history. It will determine your children’s future and the future of America. You are not just voting for a man, for Romney or Obama, you are voting for the ideas that they represent.

If you vote for Obama, you’re voting for an ever-expanding government that confiscates everything you have through higher and higher taxes. A government that is spending our grandchildren into massive debt that they can never pay off.  A government that takes away our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

If you vote for Romney, you’re voting for a return to the principles that made America great. You’ve voting for a smaller government that spends much less money. A government that lets you keep more of your hard-earned money to spend on your family. A government that leaves you alone and lets you enjoy your freedom.

Be sure that you’re registered to vote, show up at the polls on election day, and vote. If you usually don’t vote,  please vote in this election. It’s really important. Do it for your children and your grandchildren. Do it for your neighbors, your fellow Americans. Do it for the Lord, and do it for America.
