In today’s America when most media types are aeolists, offering nothing but blellum, we have few options. Most of the time, what I see, read, and hear causes me to want to defenestrate the material and walk away. Tragically, some faces on camera pretending to be unbiased purveyors of the news and providers of information are eccedentesiasts and are phony to the core.
We have cities, like the one Nancy Pelosi represents, that have become cesspools where people are forced to live in dung heaps and filth. She and most politicians practice girouettism and always test the winds of public opinion to guide them. We reached the place in this pandemic that most developed iatrapistia as we are forced to listen to mendaciloquence of politicians. Where do we go to obtain truth, facts, and trustworthy information?
There are times when I watch the antics of Washington, especially those in Congress and the various bureaus and agencies that we have devolved into a paedocracy rather than a representative democracy. I am tired of being governed by those who exhibit the appearance and characteristics of a yaud and demonstrate that they are well past their shelf-life as they demonstrate they live in a nebulochaotic state.
Where do we turn to obtain truth and trustworthy information? Not the Media, not the Politicians, not Hollywood, not the self-appointed guardians of the planet. They offer spin, agenda, rhetoric, distortion, and lies to advance their agenda and ideology. Even some of the so-called conservative and constitutional media outlets engage in spin and that damages the supposed intent and objective of restoration of Constitutional America.
Where do we turn? The only true source, for me, is God’s Word. You may or may not be a Christian. You may or may not believe the Bible is God’s Word. You may or may not believe in God. If you do not, then you will likely disagree with me regarding the veracity, validity, and importance of discovering and adhering to His word. You will not find it within your purview of America and government to accept how impactful it was on America’s beginning, our Constitution, and System of Government.
I believe that it can be documented that America has become a nation with two distinct histories. Our heritage, in the beginning, was one rooted in a rich spiritual heritage dating back to the pilgrims. We have a heritage that speaks of a godly purpose and destiny born in the hearts of the colonists and propelled us to seek freedom to pursue our beliefs, purposes, and desires without tyrannical despotic dominance. We seem to be slowly transitioning into a nation that no longer believes in that ideal and attempts to dismiss the existence of God and His righteous and moral principles. We are moving toward a society where man is the center of all things, not God. Politics has achieved preeminent importance for many and the good of society relegated to the back burner.
Through several decades and generations of exposure to the progressive liberal interpretation of our history and the truths upon which America was founded, we have become a nation with spiritual amnesia. The words of Isaiah the prophet ring in my ears, “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.” (Isaiah 40:28). Also, the words of the apostle Paul, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (Romans 10:14).
I hear the chorus of protests from those who adamantly demand that all things religious and spiritual must be separated from all things governmental and public. Yet, our founding fathers recognized the existence of God and the importance of the Bible in public education and the governance of the newly formed republic.
When you examine the historic record, you discover that one of the first acts of Congress in 1782 was to commission a publishing of the Scriptures in America so that people could have free access to it. Then around 1962, that same government banished prayer and Bible reading from our schools, you see a dramatic transition away from our founding principles to the progressive vision of globalism and the godlessness embodied in that ideology and agenda.
Where do we go for information that is true? Not to the public schools, colleges, or universities. Not to the media, Hollywood, or Washington. The only source of Truth is in God’s Word and the guiding principles of the Bible shaped our laws and helped hold this nation intact for over 240 years. It is virtually impossible to miss the influence and impact that the Bible had on our nation long before 1776 and continued well into the 1960’s. We have spent the past 60-100 years eroding the foundational pillars of this Republic by stripping it of the influence of the Bible and its message. The fruit is on the vine and unless we return to our moral moorings and rediscover our founding principles we will witness further decline and chaos in the nation.
Let me offer a quote from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, one of the chief progressives of bygone eras. He said: “In the formative days of the Republic the directing influence of the Bible exercised upon the Fathers of the Nation is conspicuously evident. This book continues to hold its unchallenged place as the most loved, the most quoted, and the most universally read and pondered of all the volumes which our libraries contain. We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a nation without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic. I suggest a nationwide reading of the Holy Scriptures for a renewed strengthening contact with those eternal truths and majestic principles which have inspired such measure of true greatness as this nation has achieved?”
What happened in America to shift us away from that view? A view widely held by Democrats and Republicans of bygone eras. It is the fruit of stripping all mention of God and the Bible from the public sector. It is elevating man to a place of preeminence and removing God from that lofty perch. What we are witnessing today with the paranoia, fear, rioting, violence, hate, bitterness, and racism from all sides is the fruit of that transition we began decades ago.
I respect the fact that some do not believe what I am saying has any legitimacy or importance. I challenge you to consider the views of founding fathers such as Benjamin Rush who believed that America’s hope of survival and attaining greatness was to use the Bible in public schools. His sentiments were echoed by Fisher Ames, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Henry Laurens, Joseph Story, Gouverneur Morris, Patrick Henry, Daniel Webster, John Jay, Noah Webster, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Witherspoon, James Madison, and James McHenry to name a few.
Love overcomes Hate and only through the Love of God in our hearts can we be reconciled as a people and put out the fires of hate and division that are burning in the hearts of people today. Until we see each other as God’s Creations and fellow members of the human race we will continue to allow hate, envy, greed, and jealousy thrive. Until we return to the principles of our Founding and the Bible and each shoulder our own loads and consider our neighbors we will decline more. We can recover and we can thrive, but not without a restoration of the foundational fabric that produces this nation and made it great.
God bless you and I pray you will consider my plea, not as an indictment or finger-pointing but as a genuine desire to see America heal.
Have a Great Day!
