OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED ON GOD AND WILL DIE WITHOUT HIM
by Bob Russell, ©2020
(Jul. 7, 2020) — As America celebrates the 244th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence it needs God more than ever before. The nation, and We the People, MUST turn our eyes and our hearts to God in fervent gratitude, prayer, and reverence for what He gave us so many years ago. The New World Order proponents in our nation have spent the last 73 years removing God from the public forum and substituting secular humanism, the idea that there is no absolute standard but that each person can decide for himself what is right and what is wrong. When I was growing up, graduating high school in 1968, we started every day with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer. There were no mass murders in our schools and the teen pregnancy rate was almost 0.
In 1948 and again in the mid-1960s, the supreme court decided that prayer in schools is unconstitutional. Subsequent decisions have said that the posting of the Ten Commandments in schools is also unconstitutional. In the last seven decades we have seen shootings in schools become an ongoing problem, rising teen pregnancy rates, and rampant hatred spewed throughout the nation. Like Pontius Pilate, today’s politicians and judges take the easy way out, appeasing the yelling of the anti-God mobs rather than standing with the majority.
The recent outbreaks of rioting, looting, and murdering have been encouraged and applauded by leftist politicians and their propaganda outlets. It greatly saddens me that people who are elected to lead the nation to greater unity and opportunity spend so much of their time fomenting hatred for one another. I find it even sadder when men who put the title “Reverend” before their name don’t seem to have the slightest clue what that title means. The ones I refer to are jesse jackson and al sharpton, two of the most vile racist hatemongers to ever inhabit this great nation. I don’t know when or where either of those two charlatans ever pastored, or even served in any capacity, at any church. All I have ever known them to do is get rich fomenting racial division and hatred. The ineligible barak obama, a man praised by both sharpton and jackson, spent his eight years of illegally squatting in the Oval Office creating the worst racial division the nation has ever seen.
Every black democrat in congress has done the same, fomenting the racial divide while doing nothing to help the lives of anyone, especially the black voters who vote for them based on skin color hoping that “one of their own” will look after the well-being of the black communities they are supposed to represent. There are a few black conservatives in congress, people who are vilified by the left as “Uncle Toms” and other vile names when they are the ones actually working to help everyone. The communist left hates God and wants Him eradicated from society because they know that people who honor God will not be subjugated and subjugation of We the People is what they seek above all for their own personal power and wealth.
Leftist governors and mayors are now clamoring for federal tax dollars to clean up the damage they themselves caused. The answer to our nation’s woes is to turn back to God, humble ourselves, pray, seek His will, and turn from our wicked ways. During this coronavirus situation the leftist media has lied to make it sound worse than it really is and democrat politicians have used the hysteria to violate the Constitution on many fronts. People have been arrested for opening their businesses against illegal edicts and Christians have been fined and/or arrested for worshiping God. I saw a story a few days ago relating that Pastor Stacey Shiflett of a suburban Baltimore, Maryland church declared, “Pharaoh will not tell me when or how we will worship God.” I have seen churches close down temporarily to be on the safe side because they wanted to see if it is really as bad as “experts” say it will be. There are two churches that I began attending while the ones I have been in for years went to online-only for safety’s sake. One of my new churches shut down for a few weeks because the pastor had been exposed to the coronavirus at his day job, but that didn’t last long. The other one went to holding services in the parking lot for two months just as a precaution. Both pastors have stated that they won’t do it again, much to my delight.
I can agree with taking precautions but bowing to government tyranny out of fear of fines or arrest, as some have done, goes against what the Bible teaches us. God’s Word tells us we should obey civil authority unless it conflicts with His Word. The radical left governor of California declared that churches which hold services must follow “social distance” edicts and may not sing worship songs because singing praise to God could spread disease. Odd how rioters don’t fall under the same restrictions he wants placed on Christian worship. In the state of New York churches and synagogues were threatened with permanent closure if they held services without permission. I noticed that mosques were not included in those edicts. One thing the left has been consistent about is bowing to the satanic cult of rape, torture, and murder that is islam. The left and islam serve the same “god,” satan.
I daily pray asking Almighty God to touch the hearts of Americans, to soften them, so everyone will turn to Him and this nation will be turned around. The onus is on Christians, and especially on pastors, to lead by example and show light to those living in darkness. Before and during the American Revolution pastors were instrumental in rousing citizens to the cause of liberty. Since 1947 too many pastors have hidden behind church building walls, fearful of preaching against tyranny and unwilling to take their message outside those walls. This has to change if we are to see our nation saved from a global tyranny headed by satan and his minions like the Nazi war criminal george soros, other globalist billionaires, and their bought-and-paid-for politicians and subversive rioters.
I would like to be able to talk to some of those people, to try to help them see how the love of God is the answer to their grievances, either real or imagined, but I have neither the ability nor financial means to travel to where they are. If you read this and are in an area affected please print this out and take it to those doing the evil deeds of their users. Much, or even most, of the looting and burning has been led by white liberals paid by subversive globalist billionaires with possible ties to democrat politicians. Conservatives like me who call for calm and civil dialogue are vilified as “racists” simply because we are against the violence that is hurting black people disproportionately.
The “systemic racism” we hear so much about is laid at the feet of conservatives when the truth is that racism has been the domain of democrats since the beginning of the nation. It is the democrats that founded and perpetuated the Ku Klux Klan, the Jim Crow Laws, and segregation. It was conservative Christians who were instrumental in the abolishing of slavery and the other evils associated with racism. I served in the U.S. Army with people of all ethnic backgrounds and skin tone without there ever being a problem. We were “brothers in arms,” each depending on the others, and it worked out well. God only created one race, the human race. Men have separated us by skin color and ethnicity because they see divide-and-conquer as their path to ultimate power over We the People. Their success can be defeated only by showing the love of God to one another.
Jesus, when asked which is the greatest commandment, said, “ Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a] 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.” Following His words is the only way to survive. I hope everyone who reads this will take it to heart and live by these words, and share them with everyone you know. I don’t write this to white, black, brown, red, or yellow people;I write it to Americans, all Americans. If you want to see a better life for your descendants, start now to put the animosity behind us and build a future of We the People based on the words of Jesus Christ that tell us to love one another as we love ourselves. I have been and still am committed to this. Will you join me?
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, the Father, Son Jesus, and the Holy Ghost, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
