AMERICA, A Christian and a Bible Nation?

I realize that I am writing to a varied readership and some who read are devoted followers and defenders of Freedom and Liberty but are not Christian.  Some are both a follower of Christ and a staunch defender of our Republic, our inalienable rights, and our Freedom.  The blend is often interesting and although we have differing views regarding some details we are united in our desire and dedication to America and preserving this Republic as the Free Constitutional Republic that had its birth in the late 1700s. 

The Dream of that band of patriots should be a rallying cry for us. Those patriots were willing to were willing to sacrifice everything in an effort to win Liberty and establish a nation that recognized the Creator and embraced the idea of inalienable rights.  That band of brothers and sisters paid prices far beyond what history records and won a victory that could only have come with the aid of the Almighty.  They expressed that on many occasions and in many of their writings.  It is interwoven in our Constitution, System of Government, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights.  What they won is a prize whose, worth we need to be continually reminded of and a rekindling of the flame of freedom. 

My title poses a question and it is a question that I have debated, discussed, and even argued over my lifetime.  As I have become more aware of the importance of freedom, the value of faith, and the foundation of family, I have become a student of history and the Bible.  For me, the two meld into an unbreakable cord that inspires me to continue sounding the alarm when it would be easier to pack it in and go into isolation. 

I contend that in the formative years of the Republic known as the United States of America, comprised of thirteen colonies or states had the unmistakable and undeniable influence of God, the Bible, and Christianity.  The influence the Bible had on the Founding Fathers is conspicuously apparent to the honest heart and student of history.  The Bible continues to hold an unchallenged place as the most loved, most read, most quoted, and pondered of all the volumes in existence.  It is impossible to study American history and not see the place the Bible had in our development and establishment.

President Theodore Roosevelt said, “The teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined in our whole civic and social life that it would be literally – I do not mean figuratively, I mean literally – impossible for us to figure to ourselves what life would be if these teachings were removed. We would lose almost all the standards by which we now judge both public and private morals – all standards toward which we, with more or less resolution, strive to raise ourselves.  Almost every man who has by his life-work added to the sum of human achievement of which the race is proud – of which our people are proud – almost every such man has based his life-work largely on the teachings of the Bible.”  What a powerful declaration from the leader of the greatest nation in the Free World.  Today that would receive such an outburst of vitriolic hate most politicians avoid the conflict.

It is interesting that our society and government took steps to promote the Bible.  In 1809 the first American Bible society was begun by a signer of the Declaration of Independence.  Following that, in less than 8 years there were 121 state and local Bible societies formed, many by other signers of the Declaration of Independence. 

In 1816, America’s first national Bible society was formed, the American Bible Society.  The first president of that organization was Founding Father Elias Boudinot. He was a president of Congress during the American Revolution, and one of the framers of the Bill of Rights.  He was also the first attorney admitted to the Supreme Court Bar.  He said, “Were you to ask me to recommend the most valuable book in the world, I should fix on the Bible as the most instructive both to the wise and ignorant.  Were you to ask me for one book affording the most rational and pleasing entertainment to the inquiring mind, I should repeat, it is the Bible!  And should you renew the inquiry for the best philosophy, or the most interesting history, I should still urge you to look into your Bible.  I would make it, in short, the alpha and omega of knowledge.”

The American Bible Society included, John Jay, Caleb Strong, John Langdon, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, Smith Thompson, Bushrod Washington, John Marshall, Matthew Clarkson, William Wirt, and John Quincy Adams.  That is a very impressive list of men who embrace the value of the Bible and its influence on our Republic.  Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer said, “The Bible contains more knowledge necessary to man in his present state than any other book in the world.  By renouncing the Bible, philosophers swing their moorings upon all moral subjects… It is the only correct map of the human heart that has ever been published.” 

John Adams one of the key figures in the Revolutionary War and the formation of our Republic said, “Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited… What a Utopia – what a Paradise would this region be!  The Bible is the best book in the world.” 

This nation’s commitment to the Bible was unwavering in our formative years and continued so for more than a hundred years if not more than one hundred and fifty years.  In 1781 Congress advanced a plan and printed America’s first English-language Bible.  On September 12, 1782, the full Congress approved that Bible, and it soon began rolling off the presses.  In the front of that Bible is a congressional endorsement: “Resolved that the United States in Congress assembled…recommend this edition of the Bible to the inhabitants of the United States.”  That obliterates the theory that those men want an impenetrable wall of separation between the church and the government. 

One historian reflected on that event saying, “Who…will call in question the assertion that this is a Bible nation?  Who will charge the government with indifference to religion when the first Congress of the States assumed all the rights and performed all the duties of a Bible Society long before such an institution had an existence in the world?”

The Bible was influential, and I believe the basis of our development into the great nation that we have become.  Our departure from its precepts and principles will be the catalyst to our downfall.  “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”  (Proverbs 14:34).  “By the blessings of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.”  (Proverbs 11:11).  “In righteousness, you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror for it will not come near you.”  (Isaiah 54:14).  “When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when a wicked man rules, people groan.”  (Proverbs 29:2).

America, my fellow patriots, and fellow believers our departure from the principles of the Bible, as a nation, has brought about many if not most of the ills that we now face.  I call upon all of those who believe in God and are called by His name to embrace the directive of 2 Chronicles 7:14, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  That is a promise from God that must be regarded.

God bless you and God bless America!                                                                                           


How did we reach the place in our beloved America where partisan politics, ideological differences, and personality clashes divided have us irrevocably? How did it happen?  Why did it happen?  Is there anything that can be done to rectify the situation?  Questions that need answers.

I’m not sure I can answer the first question of how, but I do believe I know much of the why.  As to the third question, I’m not sure that anything short of a divine intervention can cure what ails America and Americans today.  That may sound as if I am throwing in the towel and giving up, be assured I am not!  I cannot and will not give up for multiple reasons. 

I am committed to fighting for Faith, Family, and Freedom and America as long as I draw breath.  I am committed to fighting for my Faith in God.  I am committed to fighting for Freedom because of my love for America.  I am committed to fighting for Freedom in the interest of my children, grandchildren, and all of humanity.  If we quit all is lost but if we continue even against all odds, there remains hope and I will remain hopeful.

I am disturbed by those who call themselves conservatives, Constitutionalist and Patriots who are so adamantly filled with hate for the current president they are willing to facilitate a Democrat victory.  It is one thing to be unwilling to vote for a candidate but to vote for the other side is unconscionable to me. One can argue that are standing on principle to oppose a candidate and that is fine. However, that argument and assertion falls by the wayside if they then vote for a candidate on the other side that embraces everything their principles oppose.

The position and condition of those mentioned disturb me as much, if not more than the devoted leftists who follow the marching orders of liberalism and the blindness embodied in that ideological position.  What caused this mindset?  What prompted their full-blown hate? 

I know that I will be called names by some who are convinced that Trump is Lucifer incarnate and the epitome of ultimate evil.  I will be called a Trump Cultists, a minion, a Trump-bot, or some other name because I question their hate, but I do.  I am not a worshipper of any man, including President Donald J. Trump.  I worship God alone and not man, money, or power.

I do question the president when I believe he is wrong and taking a direction that is bad or unwise for America.  There are times when I cringe, at his verbiage and way of handling certain situations.  However, when I look at the big picture, which is vital, I ask myself a number of questions. The answers to those questions solidify my willingness to vote against the Leftist.

We need to ask ourselves are we better off now than we were under Barack H. Obama?  Would we be better off if Hillary Clinton was in the White House?  Is the direction of the economy, border security, national security, and the defense of our freedoms and liberties more protected or less protected than under Obama or would be if we allowed the implementation of the the agenda of the Democrats?  Are the courts becoming more constitutional or less?  Is the Constitution being defended and protected better than it was under Obama or in the agenda of the Democrats?  I think you know my answer and hopefully, you came to the same conclusions.

I refuse to allow personality to be the deciding factor in who I vote for to be the President of this Republic.  If I did, I would have refused to vote in many of the previous elections, not liking either side’s candidate.  However, I always endeavor to carefully consider how can we best survive and even hope to thrive?  Which candidate will better facilitate the advancement and progress toward the betterment of the Republic and best position her to remain strong and free?  I have yet to find a Democrat that I could give that recognition to, therefore, I vote against them as much as voting for the other candidate in many elections.

The blinders of those following the toxicity of liberalism, the media, Hollywood, virtually all the national Democrats in Washington, many of Academia, and other groups is alarming.  The media’s hypocrisy in the Ukraine imbroglio is beyond belief.  They ignore Biden, Clinton, and Democrats and seek to destroy Trump with fallacious charges emboldened by emotion. 

The media and all those aforementioned groups ignored Obama’s pledge to Putin that he would be more ‘flexible’ after his second election and try to destroy Trump with a falsified dossier and Russian collusion charges.  Obama obstructed justice on numerous occasions and Hillary violated the law repeatedly as Secretary of State but when Trump does his job, he is an evil villain. 

Obama gave kickbacks to unions, used taxpayer funds to reward political contributors such as Solyndra, and the Clinton’s amassed huge piles of cash from foreign governments through the family foundation.  Russia received Uranium for their generosity.  Obama funneled over $1 Billion of our tax dollars to Iran which helped them continue their terrorism and drug smuggling operations worldwide. 

Those are only the tip of the iceberg of political scandals by the Democrats and how anyone with a hint of love for America and belief in moral sanity could be willing to allow them back in power is beyond me. 

Call me whatever makes you feel good about yourself because of my opposition to the Left and my support for the President.  Accuse me of abandoning my convictions, my principles, my faith if that makes you feel more pious.  Accuse me of being a mindless puppet of Trump, a cultist, a bot with no mind, a minion if it makes you feel more knowledgeable and patriotic.  I am fighting for Faith, Family, and Freedom in the best way I know how and through what I believe in my heart. 

I believe that America’s survival depends on defeating the toxicity of liberalism being advanced by the Left.  I believe that America’s future will be defined and determined by whether we defeat the Socialist or not.  I see no way of defeating them if we do not unite and stand behind the President in 2020.  Yes, he is a flawed candidate with ‘kinks in his armor’ but which of us are not flawed and don’t have a few ‘kinks in our armor?’  He who is without sin let him cast the first stone. 

We are fighting for America and this is not a personality contest it is a fight for survival.  So, I ask you to lay aside your personality preferences and consider what is at stake.  Vote No on the Liberal Leftists in 2020, Please!

God bless you and God bless America!


I am angry, sad, concerned, and even fearful for not only America but the world today.  I beyond perplexed as to how anyone can honestly, with any semblance of rational reason and a smidgen of critical thought embrace the lunacy of the Left of today.  I am not trying to be an apologist for the Republican Party because many of their politicians are so like the Democrats it could be compared to Pro Wrestling or ‘Wrasslin’.

If you were to go into one of the coffee shops near the Capitol in Washington, D.C. you would find Democrats and Republicans sharing a cup of Joe, laughing, and discussing how and who will piggyback on various pieces of legislation.  They are best of buds but let the television cameras roll in and they are mortal enemies.  It’s a game and we are the ones being played!  What we have in today’s political world is light years from what the Founding Fathers envisioned and purposed.  Is this us?  Yes!  How did we get in this mess?  That requires much more detail to answer.

I believe, you may not, that the present view of abortion and the demands of the narcissistic self-important Hollywood Elitist is a symptom of a condition in society that is deadly.  If I truly believed that the Left believed that abortion was about women’s health I might be more sympathetic to their rantings.  I do not believe that most of them truly believe that.  I believe they believe that they believe it but deep inside they know it is about convenience for most not an infringement on a woman’s right to choose, control over her own body, or her health.  It is rooted in self-importance and convenience. 

I wish that was the root cause and the whole story but, in my view, it is only a surface symptom not the objective of the abortion issue.  It is about ‘devaluing human life’.  Before you break out the whips, boil the oil, and erect a cross to crucify me on, let me explain.  I believe that people like Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and many others past and present operating behind the scenes have a diabolical ‘fundamental transformation plan’ in mind and abortion is a symptom, result, or catalyst to their objective.

I suggest and believe that if we devalue human life, like the life of that unborn baby or the newly born baby to the point that we have no remorse over exterminating it, we open the door to unimaginable evil.  I cringe when I hear a governor advancing the post-birth abortion or extermination of a human life say, “We will keep it comfortable until the decision is made to let it expire or not.”  EXPIRE?  That’s what happens to milk and other products that have an expiration date, but a baby?  EXPIRE?  No, it is whether or not to murder that human being and that can only be done if we anesthetize or deaden our consciences and reclassify that life as something other than a human being. 

Where does all this lead?  I believe that everything is progressive in life.  One thing leads to another and without the first you don’t get the second.  One lie turns into two lies, then three and then becomes believed and impossible to retract.  Decisions have consequences and bad decisions have bad consequences. 

A woman has a right to choose whether or not to engage in unprotected sex or not and that is her control over her own body.  I understand the lack of choice in rape and my heart breaks for the woman so abused.  But, when did two wrongs make a right?  If there is a baby in the womb, that is a human life and that life has the right to see the light of day.  A woman can choose to offer that unwanted baby for adoption, giving life value, rather than giving it no value and aborting. 

In history, we have documented records of the progression of tyranny and despotism.  One encroachment on the rights of citizens led to another and another until there was either total bondage or apocalyptic destruction and carnage with events like the Holocaust.  When I hear people like the Muslim Representative in Congress say that she gets a ‘calming feeling’ when she thinks of the Holocaust I tremble and am horrified.  If all lives do not matter, then we come to a point where no lives matter.

In the matter of abortion, I believe it is far more about devaluing human life in the scheme of a much larger agenda than any thought or concern for the woman involved.  Oh, it may be totally about her to the woman who is contemplating an abortion, but not to the initiators of it. 

How much of a step is it to move from considering that unborn baby or newborn baby as is the new desire of abortionist to considering the weak, sickly, elderly, mentally challenged, etc. from having no value.  In my lifetime I have heard Democrats suggest that euthanasia for seniors is not a bad idea.  They were exempted from that decision because they are in the Ruling Class and therefore valuable and contributors but the rest of us are fair game.

If human life has no value, as is seen in the actions and expressed views of people like the terrorist, MS-13 gangs, and other criminal organizations what other atrocities could that open the door to?  If Jews are deemed the dregs of the earth and it is doing their god a service to eradicate them, who else might be deemed unwanted and unnecessary.  If open season on blacks or whites is deemed a righteous cause, then where does that lead.  If those who differ with your opinion are deemed worthy of elimination what is off the table.  If we become “a law unto ourselves” what is safe?

You may totally disagree with my analysis and evaluation of what is going on and where we are as a society and world, that’s your right.  You may find my position so objectionable that you choose to no longer associate with me on social media, that’s your choice.  You may insist that abortion is a human right, but I contend that if life is devalued to the point that we can kill an unborn or newborn baby without remorse no human is safe, and we will see a state of depravity bud forth that endangers the human species and destruction will be sure and painful.

I fear for my world, my country, my children, my grandchildren, and future generations.  I warn that if we allow the Democrats to regain the White House, keep the House, and reclaim the Senate in 2020 we will see abortion on demand the accepted norm, post-birth abortions coming to full acceptance, higher taxes, reinstitution of Obamacare on steroids, massive attempts to make guns illegal, and Churches placed in the Cross-hairs of the PC Police to the point that many will be forced to close and pastors imprisoned.  The dangers are beyond my ability in this short space to enumerate. 

It’s up to you and me in 2020 and beyond.  I pray that we wake up before it’s too late.  God bless you and God bless America!


I have a number of conservative, constitutional, and Christian friends who tell me, “Never going to happen in America” regarding Socialism.  They dismiss it summarily without giving much thought.  I wish I could adopt that mentality but from what I have seen in recent elections, heard from various people, and observed a definitive shift in thinking among man, I’m not so sure.  I am concerned. 

The words of Proverbs 30:15-16 echo in my head as I consider the mind and heart of mankind.  I cautiously use the Living Bible translation, “There are two things never satisfied, like a leech forever craving more: no three, things! No, four!  Hell, the barren womb, a barren desert, a fire.”  Greed in the human heart is never satisfied. 

Proverbs 27:20 tells us, “Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, nor are the eyes of a man ever satisfied.”  Greed, envy, and covetousness in the human heart blinds the mind to reason and strips one of the motivations to do what is necessary to succeed.  The entitlement mentality of today’s world advanced and nurtured by the toxicity of liberalism and class envy are robbing generations of the necessary entrepreneurial spirit and drive required for success in Capitalism and the Free Market.

We have allowed Political Correctness and a fallacious ideology that somehow the field can be made level for everyone and everyone can share equally without labor and effort of everyone.  There is a resurgence of Socialism and it is a serious threat to our American way of life, our economic and political system and, if allowed to prevail will destroy our Republic.  I consider it that serious.  You may truly believe that Americans will reject this idea but check some of the 2018 elections and see where this mentality won as well as how close some of the Socialist came to winning in their races against conservatives.  That should raise red flags in your heart and mind and cause you to see the need to ‘expose liberalism and socialism’ for what it is.

Dr. Thomas Sowell and others who are renowned economist have sounded the alarm. They are true economist unlike the faux economist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and the long list of Democrats who are backing the push for Socialism.  He said, and I agree, reminded us that on paper, Socialism sounds good, but in reality, it is a disaster.  Look at the countries that were once thriving economies and enjoyed freedom and liberty who are now under the jackboots of dictators who are advancing Socialism and Marxism.  Venezuela is one of the most immediate that comes to mind.  A once thriving nation is not starving because of Socialism.  It did not make the playing field level.  It did not make everyone equal except in poverty.  If that is the desire, no thanks!

If people today used, reason and logic, tested ideas against facts and true history, Socialism would be D.O.A. and never have any hope of surviving in America.  Sadly, that is far from the current condition in America.  Today, our educational system, the media, politicians, and activist pay little attention to evidence and operate on rhetoric and emotion.  That is hurling us headlong toward Socialism and a Grecian style democracy rather than a Free Constitutional Republic.  That is not just dangerous it is diabolical and destructive!

If we ignore danger that danger frequently prevails.  To be forewarned is to be forearmed.  It is imperative that we know the strategies and agenda of our enemies to formulate a pathway to victory.  Assuming that everyone sees the problem, loves our freedoms, and grasps the value and benefit of the Free Market is to open the door to the deception of millions.  Freebies sound good.  Who would not like to have something they desire given to them without having to work, save, and sacrifice to obtain?  Well, many would, even if some argue they want nothing they have not earned. 

It is my desire that Socialism be put on trial in America.  No, I do not mean litigation in the courts of law but on trial in the court of public opinion.  I want those who see the danger to articulate those dangers and expose the fallaciousness of the lies of the liberal socialist.  I want their deception to be exposed and help as many as possible to understand that no nation operating in a Socialist Economy has produced the Utopia their ideology declares will be the result.  Those in poverty become more impoverished.  There are always a few in power who become incredibly wealthy and they do not ‘share the wealth’ or ‘redistribute their wealth’ to the masses.  They keep it, horde it, and live in luxury while the people live in squalor.  That is the truth of Socialism.

If the Socialist agenda of the Left becomes a reality we will see the literal destruction and devastation in energy, transportation, airlines, jobs, and businesses large and small.  It would cost, in the estimate of many economists over $75 TRILLION.  We need to remind people that the rant and diatribe of the Left that the Rich are not “paying their fair share” is false.  The top 10% of all wage earners pay approximately 70% of all taxes.  How is that deemed less than their fair share?  The bottom 50% of all wage earners pay about 3% of all taxes.  Let’s talk about fair shares.  

Yes, the rich are sometimes rich to the point of being viewed as obnoxious and obscene but that is the reward of either inheritance or ingenuity and hard work.  No, I do not think that everyone in America can become filthy rich, but I do believe that we can all achieve more if we make the required sacrifices, take advantage of the available opportunities or make opportunities for ourselves daring to risk everything.  There are risk and reward in any business venture and you might lose everything pursuing your objective and that is a choice you must make.  If you choose to not take the risk, how is that the fault of any ethnicity or those who have become wealthy? 

Someone said, “Socialism is rising in America but so are ignorance, stupidity, greed, and envy.”  It makes me scratch my head and wonder, “How can this be?” How can this be in a time of economic boom?  Why would Socialism gain traction in a time when there are more jobs than we have seen in a very long time?  How?  Because of the greed and entitlement mentality that has been generationally produced via education, indoctrination, activism, liberalism, and the incessant rant of the media.  Politicians love the idea of buying votes and thereby enslaving their constituents.  That is the precursor to Tyranny and Socialism.  We are dangerously close in America, so I see it as a very real threat and possibility.

What can we do?  We must put Socialism on Trial in the Court of Public Opinion.  We must articulate the realities and dangers of Socialism and the benefits of the Free Market.  We must get on our faces before God and pray for sanity to prevail so that Freedom can survive.  I pray that all who love our Freedoms, our nation, and want to keep America Free will unite and vote against all the Leftist, Socialist, Marxist, Liberals and RINOs in 2020.  Let’s do this for America!

God bless you and God bless America!
