The Clock is Ticking on a Free America

Sat, 26 Jan 2013 23:08:00 +0000

The president is becoming more bold and brazen in his pursuit of eliminating freedom in the U.S.A., as Congress sits back and watches and marvels at his tactics. How much time do we have left? What has to happen before America wakes up?

We Must Never Forget 9-11

Wed, 12 Sep 2012 03:25:00 +0000

We've got a lot of problems in this country but we also have a great many people who fear God and who appreciate what this great country has stood for since its founding. We should never forget the assault on this country's freedom which took place 11 years ago on September 11th 2001. We must not give up on defending our freedom and liberty whether the assaults come from terrorists from Islam or from those in our our country who want to see our freedoms destroyed. May we look to God for strength and pray that He revive our nation through our only hope as a people, turning to Jesus Christ as our Savior from our sinful fallen condition. God Bless America!!

Will This be America’s Last July 4th?

Thu, 05 Jul 2012 02:50:00 +0000

On this date 236 years ago, 56 courageous men, most of who were devout Christians, placed their lives, their family’s lives and all of their worldly possessions on the line when they signed the Declaration of Independence.Their goal was to rid themselves of the oppressive tyranny of England and King George III.  These brave founding fathers sought freedom from British taxation and freedom to worship as they pleased, not how the monarchy dictated.The American Revolutionary War had started a year earlier on April 19, 1775 and finally ended nearly 8 ½ years later on September 3, 1783.  Between the war and diseases such as smallpox that swept the colonies from 1775 to 1782, it is estimated that over 155,000 colonists died (130,000 alone due to smallpox).Finally, the United States of America was a free and independent nation and the first President, General George Washington, hurriedly gathered the political leaders and went to a nearby church to thank God for His providence in helping them through the time of turmoil.  Washington also asked God to continue to watch over America as the nation began its journey through history.Now, 236 years later, America has turned from God and it is obvious that His blessing has been withdrawn from our land.  Our national leaders no longer look to God’s Word for guidance and direction.  In fact, they have passed law after law banning any mention of God from public places.  In His stead, the government has turned to a sinful way of life that mocks God and Jesus Christ.In what I believe to be the final acts of defiance to God, President Barack Obama and his administration has struck down traditional marriage of one man and one woman and have replaced it with all kinds of perverse relationships.  And trust me, this has not gone unnoticed by God.The Apostle Paul warned us about this nearly 2,000 years ago when he wrote to the Romans saying:For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.  For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.  For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.  They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.  Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.[...]

The U.S. Constitution Died Today

Fri, 29 Jun 2012 00:36:00 +0000


June 28, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement reacting to the Supreme Court's decision to uphold Obamacare:

"The U.S. Constitution died today. The underlying hope and belief that our nation's founding document protected individual freedoms from an ever encroaching government is a thing of the past based upon this ruling. It is inconceivable how these nine lifetime appointed jurists could have decided to keep a law that is such a blatant intrusion into each of our lives, but the result of their decision is that individuals can no longer rely on the federal government power being limited by anything other than the political pressure their individual elected representatives feel. Ultimately, the Supreme Court has opted out of the battle to retain our freedoms, and has thrown in entirely with those who advocated for unlimited government authority. It is truly a sad day for our nation."

GOD IS NOT MUTE- Charles Spurgeon

Wed, 21 Mar 2012 02:25:00 +0000

Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

(1 Samuel 3:10)

He who would hear God speak needs not to wait long, for God speaks to men continually by the Scriptures, which are given to us by inspiration.

Alas that we would be so deaf to its teachings! This wonderful volume, so full of wisdom, is so little read that few of us could dare to gaze upon its pages and say, “O Lord, in this Book I have heard your speech.”

At other times, the Lord speaks by providence. Both national providences and personal providences have a meaning; providences that are afflicting and that are comforting all have a voice.

But alas, I fear that oftentimes to us providence is dumb because we are deaf. I am afraid few of you can say of it, “O Lord in providence I have heard your speech.”

The God of heaven speaks to men by his Holy Spirit. He does this, at times, in those common operations of the Spirit upon the ungodly which they resist, as did also their fathers.

The Spirit strives with men, he calls, and they refuse; he stretches out his hands, and they regard him not. Though we have ears to hear, we frequently quench the Spirit,

We grieve him, we neglect his monitions, and if we do not despise his teachings, yet too often we forget them and listen to the follies of earth instead of regarding the wisdom of the skies.[1]

Charles Spurgeon




Polar Opposites

The Defining Moment in the Future of America

Fri, 06 Jan 2012 01:50:00 +0000

by Henry Lamb

Jan. 1, 2012, is the first day of the last year of the first term of the most "transformative" president in the history of the United States. Before he became president, Barack Hussein Obama told America that
"…we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America."

During the first three years of his presidency, he has pushed his philosophy of governance further and further away from the philosophy of governance developed by the framers and enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. The defining moment in the future of the United States will come on Nov. 6, 2012, when each citizen casts – or fails to cast – a vote for the next president, and for the legislators who will guide the nation.

Before his first election, Obama promised "hope and change." We have seen whatever "hope" his supporters voted for turn into fundamental changes in the size, cost, scope and function of the national government. Never in the history of the nation has a president or Congress even considered giving the government the power to force private citizens to purchase a specified product. President Obama and his Democratic majority in both houses of Congress transformed the function of the national government.

If government is endowed with the power to force private citizens to purchase a specified health insurance product, this same power can to force private citizens to purchase a Chevrolet, solar-generated electricity, or any other product the government thinks the people should use. This fundamental transformation of the function of government abolished the possibility, and even the dream, of America, "the land of the free and the home of the brave."

On Dec. 6, 2011, President Obama traveled to Kansas to deliver a speech that fully outlines the direction and the extent of the transformation he fully intends to pursue. His masterful presentation carefully distorts the truth to deceive his audience into believing that his goal is the same as the goal declared by Teddy Roosevelt who said:

by Henry Lamb

"Our country means nothing unless it means the triumph of a real democracy … of an economic system under which each man shall be guaranteed the opportunity to show the best that there is in him."

... In a free market, competition sets prices, pushes innovation and encourages quality because people are free to purchase whatever product and service they wish from whomever they wish. If some businesses' prices are too high, their products out of date or inferior, people are free to refuse to purchase products, and a free market will force these businesses to improve – or close.

The free market is "…an economic system under which each man shall be guaranteed the opportunity to show the best that there is in him." A free market guarantees every man an equal opportunity, not an equal outcome.

Obama told his audience: "I'm here in Kansas to reaffirm my deep conviction that we're greater together than we are on our own. I believe that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, when everyone plays by the same rules." This is not the description of a free market; the economic system President Obama describes is a "government-managed" market.

The economic system Obama envisions requires someone – the government or its administrator – to define what a "fair shot" is for everyone, to define what constitutes their "fair share" and to set the "same rules" under which everyone must play.

It is Here.

Wed, 14 Sep 2011 03:28:00 +0000

Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.- George H. BushAgenda 21 isn’t coming. It is here. Most don’t know about it. They’ve never heard of it, but it is creeping in the back door right now. So, look behind you. It may already be in your backyard.What is Agenda 21? It is a United Nation’s program presented and approved in Rio in 1992. At that time American conservatives laughed it off. “This is too crazy,” they said. “Impossible. It will never happen. Not here!” Well, it is happening. It is happening here and it is happening now. Agenda 21 is a totalitarian comprehensive environmental program that, when fully implemented, will direct where you live, how much water you can use, and how and where you can travel.Agenda 21 is being marketed as a worldwide effort to ensure that all human beings will have access to adequate housing, health care, water and food. Of course this will require a massive redistribution of wealth from prosperous countries to poorer countries. Predictably, capitalistic countries, like the United States, will suffer lower standards of living.It’s noteworthy that Presidents George H. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama, through Executive Orders, have signed onto Agenda 21. Hundreds more governors, mayors, and county commissioners have also signed on.Agenda 21 and related programs will eliminate many things we hold dear. These have been declared “unsustainable” and will be abolished. Here are some of them:1. All private property rights (property ownership)2. All forms of irrigation, pesticides & commercial fertilizer3. Livestock production and most meat consumption4. Privately owned vehicles and personal travel5. Use of fossil fuels for power generation or mechanized travel6. Single family homes7. Most forms of mineral extraction and timber harvesting8. Human population must be reduced to fewer than 1 billion peopleIt’s not coming from Washington D.C. or state legislatures for the most part. It is seeping in through local city and county governments. Agenda 21 brings with it stealthy code words, comforting words such as “smart growth,” “social justice,” “bio-diversity,” and “sustained development.” You will hear them often. Translated these terms effectively mean total environmental dictatorship and the elevation of the pagan practice of the worship of Mother Earth. Not a joke.179 countries, including the United States, initially signed on to the Agenda in 1992. Many more have joined since then. It is already in progress in 600 U.S. cities. You can check the list of committed countries and cities at: http://www.iclei.org/index.php?id=11454. You can also read the specific programs being implemented.Agenda 21 is designed to control every aspect of human life on every square inch of planet earth. As a biblical worldview dims in the world man falls to the bottom of the food chain.If Agenda 21 succeeds animals will become more important than man as will plants and trees. We can already see ample evidence of this process in motion today. Agenda 21’s real message is: “Man is the problem. Nature must be preserved and take precedence. Mother Earth must not be scratched.“Agenda 21 is just another attempt by man to recreate heaven on earth. David Chilton, in his insightful book Paradise Restored, presents an important hi[...]

Where is the Holiness of the Church of God Today?

Thu, 14 Jul 2011 03:29:00 +0000

"Where is the holiness of the church of God today? Ah! were she what she professed to be, she would be 'fair as the moon, clear as the sun', and then 'terrible as an army with banners'; but now she is dim as smoking flax, and rather the object of ridicule than of reverence. May not the measure of the influence of a church be estimated by its holiness? God's saints may well mourn with Jerusalem when they see spirituality and holiness at so low an ebb! Others may regard this as a matter of no consequence; but we view it as the breaking forth of a leprosy."

--Charles Spurgeon (1834–1892)

America! Do You Remember?

Sun, 03 Jul 2011 03:31:00 +0000

DO YOU REMEMBER ...
.When riots were unthinkable.
When you left your front doors open.
When socialism was a dirty word.
When ghettos were neighborhoods.
When the flag was a sacred symbol.
When criminals actually went to jail.
When you weren't afraid to go out at night.
When taxes were only a necessary nuisance.
When a boy was a boy and dressed like one.
When the poor were too proud to take charity.
When the clergy actually talked about religion.
When clerks and repairmen actually tried to please you.
When college kids swallowed goldfish, not acid.
When songs had tune, and words made sense.
When young fellows tried to join the Army or Navy.
When people knew what the fourth of July stood for.
When you never dreamed our country could ever lose.
When a Sunday drive was a pleasant trip, not an ordeal.
When you bragged about your hometown and home state.
When everybody didn't feel entitled to a college education.
When people expected less and valued what they had more.
When politicians proclaimed their patriotism, and meant it.
When everybody knew the difference between right and wrong.
When things weren't perfect - but you never expected them to be.
When you weren't made to feel guilty for enjoying dialect comedy.
When our Government stood up for Americans, anywhere in the world.
When you knew that the law would be enforced and your safety protected.
When you considered yourself lucky to have a good job, and proud of it.
When the law meant justice, and you felt a shiver of awe at the sight of a policeman.
When you weren't embarrassed to say that this is the best country in the world.
When America was a land filled with brave, proud, confident, hardworking people!



When the Church Becomes Like the World

Thu, 02 Jun 2011 05:06:00 +0000

Jolly Christianity and Sanctified NightclubsWhen the church becomes like the world by Paul Tautges A.W. Tozer died the year I was born but, if I had known him, I think we would have gotten along quite well. In fact, I think I would have asked him if we could do lunch once a month so I could pick his brain. Because in my opinion the main ingredient in Tozer’s underlying belief system that caused many to call this Chicago pastor, a “20th century prophet,” was his lofty view of God and the exalted worship that He, therefore, deserves. At the risk of quoting one person too much, let me give you a little taste of Tozer. [i] The idea that this world is a playground instead of a battleground has now been accepted in practice by the vast majority of fundamentalist Christians. They might hedge around the question if they were asked bluntly to declare their positions, but their conduct gives them away. They are facing both ways, enjoying Christ and the world, gleefully telling everyone that accepting Jesus does not require them to give up their fun—Christianity is just the jolliest thing imaginable. The ‘worship’ growing out of such a view of life is as far off center as the view itself—a sort of sanctified nightclub without the champagne and the dressed-up drunks (pp. 152, 153). I cannot accept with sympathy the idea that we go to church to soothe ourselves and calm our spirits. We do calm our spirits and there is a soothing effect in worship, but the primary object of church attendance is not to relax—it is to offer worship, which belongs to God (p. 3). What the Church needs today is a restoration of the vision of the Most High God…The honor of God has been lost to men and the God of today’s Christianity is a weakling—a little cheap, palsy God that you can run and pal around with. He’s ‘the man upstairs.’ He’s the fellow that can help you when you’re in difficulty and not bother you too much when you’re not (p. 54). Unlike many professing believers today, Tozer saw the cheapening of God as a serious offense and, therefore, was compelled to speak out against contemporary forms of “worship” that eroded the fear of God from the hearts of Christians. What he discerned (and warned against) was the drift of the church away from a standard of separation from worldliness in all its forms toward a pragmatic use of entertainment as an evangelistic tool or tactic to keep worldly-minded believers happy in the pews. That is why reading Tozer’s assessment of the worship trends of his day feels like you are reading a contemporary author but, then you stop and realize, “Oh yeh, this guy’s dead.” A question that thoughtful Christians must ask is, What brought the church in Tozer’s day (and, therefore, our day) to such a pathetic state? The answer is found in the change in the church’s relationship with worldly forms of entertainment. Listen to Tozer again, For centuries the Church stood solidly against every form of worldly entertainment, recognizing it for what it was—a device for wasting time, a refuge from the disturbing voice of conscience, a scheme to divert attention from moral accountability. For this she got herself abused roundly by the sons of this world. But of late she has become tired of the abuse and has given over the struggle. She appears to have decided that if she cannot conquer the great god Entertainment she may as well join force[...]
