America Has Banned God

MARCH 23, 2021 Ray Comfort Founder & CEO, Living Waters

It’s taken a while, but the world is finally getting the message. After decades of hearing that all God wants is to be allowed to improve their lives with a wonderful plan, they are now getting the second part of the message from the seeker-friendly church. What is it? It is that we should eliminate anything that would make seekers feel uncomfortable.

So the world has taken that message to heart. The name of Christ makes them feel uncomfortable, so it’s logical then that traditional Christmas greetings should be replaced by “Happy Holidays.”

The seeker-friendly church also suggested removing the cross from the church building so that seekers wouldn’t feel uncomfortable. So we shouldn’t complain that Los Angeles removed the cross from their county seal.

The Ten Commandments were taken out of the gospel message, so we need not be concerned that they were taken off state properties.

Teaching “Intelligent Design” in schools also has uncomfortable connotations of “God” being behind it, so the natural selection in schools is the only alternative: Unintelligent Design—the unscientific explanation of the “Theory of Evolution.”

So, what should we do to reach this younger generation? Should we sign more petitions or somehow protest? I don’t think that will do much for our cause. I think that we should rather do what we have been told to do. We should “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” There’s a novel idea. But how do we do that when we can’t go into schools and mention God?

After putting Santa into our limo (our ministry was given a limo which we were using to raise money for “The Children’s Hunger Fund”) and giving out stuffed toys after I had preached, I had an idea. I purchased an extremely authentic-looking gorilla suit. Picture this. We park the limo on the street at a wide area of the sidewalk, right outside a high school just before thousands of students pour out of school. The gorilla is standing in the limo sticking out of the hole in the roof. He climbs out and sits on the hood of the vehicle; I stand up and say, “Hello. My name is Ray. What an incredible country this is. We are known as ‘One Nation Under God,’ we have ‘In God we trust’ on our money, an amazing 90% of Americans believe in God, millions go to church…yet there are laws that are being passed in this country saying that it is illegal to talk to school kids about ‘Intelligent Design’ because it has connotations of God behind it. They only want you to hear one side—the theory of evolution. I don’t think they should censor what you hear, so I’m going to talk for a few minutes about Intelligent Design, and as a token of appreciation for you listening, we are going to give out these gifts after I have spoken. I believe the most compelling argument for Intelligent Design is your conscience. So that’s what I’m going to speak to today, by going through a few of the Ten Commandments…” etc.

“we are at war, and we are not fighting liberals, school boards, politicians, the ACLU, or judges. The Bible says that ‘we do not wrestle against flesh and blood’ (Ephesians 6:12).”

If they refuse to teach Intelligent Design in schools, we will teach it outside the schools. What’s more, we will take the limo to wherever there are crowds of people—to beaches, outside malls, parades, and spring breaks—wherever. We are not going to wait for the world to come to church because we know that the world hates the light of the gospel, and will not come to it “lest their deeds are exposed” (John 3:20). We are taking the battle to them.

This is because we are at war, and we are not fighting liberals, school boards, politicians, the ACLU, or judges. The Bible says that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood” (Ephesians 6:12). Instead, we wrestle against a subtle enemy that is trying to tighten a steel noose around a complacent Church. In the past, we have been banned from preaching on American soil outside of the local courts. We have been forbidden from exercising our First Amendment rights and preaching at the local DMM to lines of people before it even opened. We can no longer go into schools and mention God.

It’s easy to forget that we have a very real enemy that “walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). But we know that if God is for us, nothing shall be against us, and that we have been issued with “weapons of…warfare [that] are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4). We have tossed away the “carnal” feather-duster of the modern message, and have replaced it with the “mighty” ten great cannons of God’s Law. The Law makes the enemy tremble. The rousing words of General Douglas McArthur are applicable for a conflict such as this: “The enemy is in front of us. The enemy is behind us. He is to the right and to the left of us. He can’t get away this time!”

Maybe you haven’t been given a limo. Perhaps you would never do what we used to do. Maybe you could never see yourself standing up and preaching in public. But there is something you could do, and it’s not difficult. Perhaps you could get the Giant Money tracts and pass them out on the sidewalk outside your local school as kids go in or come out. We have done this, and the tracts go like hot cakes on a cold day in Alaska. They eat them up.

Throw caution to the wind by stepping out in faith. Be like David: run to the battle. Refuse to surrender to the enemy’s weapons of intimidation. Take ground for the Kingdom before some tool of the enemy passes legislation to ensure that precious school kids aren’t harassed by “religious sects” (that’s us). We still have liberty, so use it for the most noble of causes: to fight the good fight of faith. Whatever you do, do something…and do it now.

North Korean defector says indoctrination at Columbia Univ. crazier than Kim regime

By Brandon Showalter, Christian Post Reporter | Tuesday, June 15, 2021

A North Korean defector who Christian missionaries helped escape to freedom said attending Columbia University, an Ivy League institution, was crazier, as far as its forced ideology and conformity, than the brutal Kim regime. 

Yeonmi Park recounted how she came to the United States to attend Columbia after transferring from a South Korean university in 2016 and was troubled to find a culture of indoctrination, which she detailed in recent interviews about her frustration while pursuing a humanities degree at the prestigious university.

“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park, the author of the bestseller In Order to Live, said in an interview with Fox News

“I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different, but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”

Park explained that a university staff member antagonized her when she said she enjoyed classic literature and authors like Jane Austen. She recounted the person telling her that such writers had a colonial mindset and were bigots and racists, and their messages were subconsciously brainwashing her.

Similarly, gender issues, specifically as they pertained to language, also took the then-North Korean student by surprise. Each course at the Ivy League school began with students declaring the pronouns by which they prefer to be addressed.

“English is my third language. I learned it as an adult. I sometimes still say ‘he’ or ‘she’ by mistake, and now they are going to ask me to call them ‘they’? How the heck do I incorporate that into my sentences?” she asked. 

“It was chaos,” she added. “It felt like the regression in civilization.”

“Even North Korea is not this nuts. … North Korea was pretty crazy, but not this crazy,” Park said, adding that she eventually learned not to say anything after several arguments with professors and students in order to maintain a good GPA and graduate. 

The North Korean woman made a grueling journey through Asia to escape what is arguably the most repressive nation in the world. By the time she was 13 years old, she had watched people fall dead due to starvation. At age 13, in 2007, she crossed into China with her mother over the frozen Yalu River where human traffickers captured them and sold them into slavery. She was sold for less than $300, and her mother was sold for $100. 

They managed to flee to Mongolia with the assistance of Christian missionaries, traversing across the Gobi desert. Park later found refuge in South Korea. Her 2015 memoir recounts how she survived North Korean oppression and what it took to escape to freedom, which she also shared in a TedTalk in 2013.  

In the United States, people “are just dying to give their rights and power to the government. That is what scares me the most,” Park, who now advocates for the human rights of North Koreans, told Fox News.

“In North Korea, I literally believed that my Dear Leader [Kim Jong un] was starving,” she said. 

“He’s the fattest guy, how can anyone believe that? And then somebody showed me a photo and said, ‘Look at him, he’s the fattest guy. Other people are all thin.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God, why did I not notice that he was fat?’ Because I never learned how to think critically.”

“That is what is happening in America,” she stressed. “People see things, but they’ve just completely lost the ability to think critically.”

The secret to saving America

David Kupelian explores how to fight the good fight without losing your soul

“… become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world …” –Philippians 2:15

The United States of America is in the throes of a full-scale revolution. The new administration, which openly promises to transform America, rewrite her Constitution and “reimagine” all of her bedrock institutions, is being heralded by a shockingly totalitarian censorship campaign targeting everyone in opposition, from Donald J. Trump on down.

But this revolution is not new. For decades, our nation has been under covert, slow-motion assault by what we cryptically call “the far Left,” a religious-political movement fundamentally at war with both Christianity and America.

From the sexual revolution and the “marriage-is-legalized-rape” radical feminists of the 1960s, to today’s open love affair with socialism, sexual anarchy, abortion, identity politics, radical environmentalism and “defunding the police,” the Left has relentlessly pursued its goal, as Barack Obama put it, of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

And though President Trump fought mightily against this tide for four years, tirelessly pursuing a pro-life, pro-religious freedom, pro-Constitution, pro-America agenda, as of today the revolutionaries are wildly ascendent.

Consider that in the past year the radical Left – with whose cause Big Media, Big Tech, Big Education, Big Hollywood and the entire Democratic Party totally identify – has succeeded in:

* indicting the freest, most welcoming and least racist nation on earth as irredeemably racist;

* inciting violent Marxist revolutionaries to riot, vandalize, loot and burn America’s major cities;

* abandoning their former “safe, legal and rare” stance on abortion in favor of wanton celebration of late-term abortion up to the moment of birth and beyond;

* encouraging innocent children to irreversibly ruin their lives by chemically (and sometimes surgically) “transitioning” to the opposite sex – a scientific impossibility;

* using the COVID pandemic as a cover for imposing unprecedented totalitarian control over Americans; and

gaslighting an entire nation by perpetrating the most wide-ranging, egregious and in-your-face election fraud in U.S. history while pretending disenfranchised American voters who simply want a fair and impartial investigation are the crazy ones, “trying to steal the election from Joe Biden.”

And that’s just for starters.

As America’s once-great middle class becomes crushed through endless COVID lockdowns, a wealthy and privileged globalist elite is not only growing ever richer and more powerful, but also strategically deploying COVID as a pretext for engineering what they call a “Great Reset” of the world – replacing capitalism with socialism. This is neither conspiracy theory nor partisan conjecture; the “Reset” movement’s leaders openly brag about it.

‘Evil in high places’

What Americans are beholding as the new year unfolds is more than just a host of extremely daunting circumstances brought about by corrupt, misguided and power-hungry people in leadership positions. Something else seems to be at work.

Consider that the well-intentioned but naïve liberal leaders of yesteryear are almost nowhere to be found. In their place are politicians, academics and media personalities whose breathtaking level of dishonestly and delusion (they talk earnestly about men becoming pregnant, they liken Trump to Hitler and they pretend the corrupt and shockingly senile Joe Biden is qualified to be president) suggests a surreal, dystopian, darkly spiritual dimension to the current troubled era.

In truth, Americans today are confronted with a maniacal revolutionary movement emanating from a full-bore rebellion against God Almighty and the essential foundation stones of Western Judeo-Christian civilization – from biblical morality, to “unalienable” individual rights, to equal justice under the law, to the color-blind society championed by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., to the sacredness of children in the womb. After all, each of these priceless principles emanates directly from a deep recognition that human beings are created in the image of God – Imago Dei – and are therefore precious and of inestimable value.

Ironically, although atheist Karl Marx famously attacked religion and particularly Christianity as the “opium of the people,” he himself concocted the ultimate religious opiate: Marxism.

For although the fantasy-world promise of socialism was a “classless” society wherein all people are equal and cared for, in the real world, corrupt leftist-elite politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are so dishonest and desperately addicted to power, their consciences so seared by decades of lying, that they retain zero capacity for genuinely caring about the “poor and disadvantaged.” It’s all an act.

Rather, the religion they preach – Marxism, socialism, progressivism, whatever the label – is just an opiate they cynically dispense to pacify and distract the masses, while they grow ever more wealthy, powerful and privileged, but inwardly ever more ugly, corrupt and self-deceived.

So now comes the big question: With such genuine wickedness openly manifesting in “the land of the free,” so much that it evokes the Apostle Paul’s admonitions about “powers and principalities” and “spiritual wickedness in high places,” what can good Americans do about the precarious state of their country? During this time of genuine tribulation and even persecution, how should moral, right-thinking Americans, who work hard, love their country, honor its history and obey its laws – and who don’t pretend there are dozens of new genders and that America is a despicable racist hellhole – now respond?

‘Uniquely blessed by God’

First, remember that our current time isn’t uniquely burdened by evil and misfortune. When Jesus Christ walked the earth two millennia ago, He and His Jewish countrymen lived under harsh Roman occupation, “individual rights” (including the right to vote) didn’t exist and most people were “poor and disadvantaged.” And then there was leprosy. Moreover, to make sure the rabble always knew who was in charge, the Romans routinely crucified people along the roadsides – escaped slaves, criminals and other “lowlifes,” and especially those they regarded as any sort of threat to Roman rule.

The intervening centuries have all too often presented equally daunting circumstances. While today’s coronavirus pandemic has taken several hundred thousand American lives, 14th century Europe had to contend with the Black Plague, which killed some 25 to 50 million people – and no treatments or vaccines. Then there have been the countless wars, the costliest being World War II with over 70 million deaths, including over 400,000 Americans. Indeed, the 20th century was the bloodiest in all of human history, dominated as it was by the ever-metastasizing Marxist cancer, which consumed an appalling 100-200 million lives.

Truth is, the human race is so regularly mired in intractable crises, one could reasonably conclude that crisis and chaos are the norm for humans, with societal peace and prosperity but rare and cherished aberrations.

And that may be the point: America has historically constituted one of those few extraordinary “cherished aberrations,” a nation uniquely blessed by God.

America was blessed by wise founders who crafted a magnificent Constitution to be the template for a government based on individual rights and ordered liberty, not the rule of kings and potentates. Blessed with a population willing to sacrifice 600,000 lives in a war that ended up expunging the evil of slavery. Blessed with an admirably resilient Judeo-Christian culture and a population genuinely in love with their country. Blessed with extraordinary natural resources, including more oil than Saudi Arabia. Blessed with unparalleled freedom and prosperity that to this day attract more immigrants to our shores than any other country in the world, by far.

Therefore, when they see their beloved country being stolen, defiled and “fundamentally transformed” as it is right now, right-thinking Americans feel compelled to defend her. But how?

First and most immediate: November’s election was a freak show featuring hands-down the most massive amount of voter fraud in Americans’ lifetimes. If the various states that permitted and encouraged election fraud – such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and others – aren’t compelled to play by the rules, America will never again be a unified, peaceful nation – ever. So that is job one.

Even setting aside the outrageous election abuses, the major news media and tech monopolies pre-rigged November’s contest long before Election Day by continually portraying Donald Trump as a Hitlerian, mentally ill traitor while casting the demented and spectacularly corrupt Joe Biden as a moral paragon and guarantor of national healing.

They all knew better, but they did it anyway.

However, a corrupt news establishment, a rigged election process, a radicalized Democratic Party and out-of-control Big Tech information gatekeepers are not our only problems.

America’s colleges and universities have become Marxist indoctrination centers. Our public elementary, middle and high schools teach our children that America is a racist nation. Even preschoolers are herded into public libraries where demonically possessed men pretending to be women – some of them convicted sex-offenders – are allowed to beguile, indoctrinate and corrupt these children’s tender little minds, while their clueless parents smile and nervously laugh.

Summarizing America’s current spiritual state, Los Angeles mega-pastor John MacArthur recently told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham: “America’s in a moral free fall. … You murder the babies in the womb. If they survive the womb, you try to seduce them into transgender sexual deviation when they’re young. If they survive that, you corrupt them with a godless education. If they survive that, you have divorce in the family. And if they grow to be adults, we drown them in a sea of pornography. This is a nation so far down in the sewer of immorality and wickedness that nothing surprises me.”

MacArthur is right, of course. Which means even if Trump had managed to remain in office for another four years and continued to turbocharge the U.S. economy as he did previously, America would remain in a state of “moral free fall.”

Try this thought experiment: Recall how Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court led to hordes of screaming people wildly pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court building, an epic mob scene reminiscent of something out of the French Revolution. And that was just over a nomination! Imagine what would happen if those rioters’ worst fears – the outlawing of abortion – actually came to pass. What if the Supreme Court actually repealed Roe v. Wade, or – to take the hypothetical even further – suppose the states actually amended the U.S. Constitution with a Human Life Amendment, outlawing abortion throughout the nation.

It would be a great day, of course – except America would be in a state of war, her streets unsafe, mass hysteria dominating public life every single day.

I think you get the picture. America has become a very broken nation, with millions of people utterly captive to bizarre, deceitful and deadly beliefs.

Thus, while we work and litigate and demonstrate and persuade and donate and pray for a turnaround on all the current battlefields – from election integrity to media corruption to abortion – what America really needs is indeed a revolution. But not a Marxist one.

Toward national revival

First, a word of warning to hotheads: Whereas civil disobedience in the manner of the Civil Rights Movement demonstrators of the 1960s can be a powerful force for good, awakening the conscience of a nation and bringing about truly positive change, angry and violent rebellion is not only counterproductive, it is precisely what the maniacal, power-obsessed Left wants.

That’s right. Although they will never admit it, it’s what they desire most of all. Why? Because it would enable them to point to “rightwing, white-supremacist extremists and terrorists” and say, “See! We told you all along that white-nationalist Trump-supporting fascists were the real problem!”

This is precisely why the left is forever fabricating and publicizing a never-ending array of “hate-crime” hoaxes, because they serve to validate their deranged narrative that conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters are the real criminals, fascists and terrorists, and must be throttled at all costs. The left dreams of an unhinged, violent “rightwing” rebellion, as such would serve only to vindicate them and give them a lock on the power they crave.

As events unfold in the new year and beyond, bold strategies will emerge for restoring our nation, and patriotic right-thinking Americans will surely pursue them. Members of Congress and all state legislators will play pivotal roles, especially with regard to asuring free and fair elections, as will governors and mayors and indeed all elected office holders. Traditionally minded citizens will pursue parallel institutions to protect their children as well as their own wellbeing and sanity, from alternative educational modalities (homeschooling and private Christians schools) to alternative news media. Indeed, the American samizdat (that’s what the “underground” press, the only source of truthful news, was called in the former Soviet empire) must flourish, although it will have to endure more censorship and abuse as they perform their vital role of investigating corruption and truthfully keeping Americans informed.

In every area of life, Americans will have to bear up with grace and dignity in fighting the good fight. Citizens, the ultimate sovereigns in America’s unique constitutional system, who may be tempted to “drop out of politics” must do the opposite – vigorously exercising their sacred rights of voting, free speech, free association, freedom of worship, and to “petition the government for a redress of grievances” in every legal and moral way.

One final all-important point: Unlike virtually all other nations, the essence of America is not a common ethnicity but a common spirit – a grateful, liberty-loving, generous, essentially Christian spirit, which needs to burn more brightly now in America than ever.

Indeed, no real and lasting recovery is possible for America without a genuine spiritual revival. And each of us can and must play a key part in this revival. How? While we’re engaged on every battlefront – committed to work creatively and effectively, to educate and persuade, to enlighten and awaken, and to outthink and outmaneuver the demented Left – each of us needs, as Christ commanded, to “Let [our] light … shine before men,” always praying we can wage the battle righteously. And even praying for our enemies.

Christianity has historically grown during times of persecution, not only in numbers but in depth and sincerity. America’s coming days promise to be very tough ones, with much persecution directed toward those who dare speak the Truth. But if good people stand up for what is right, for their nation, for what is legal and proper and moral and good – and if they do it with faith in Almighty God that He may be glorified and His will ultimately triumph – they absolutely cannot lose.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28


AUDIO Can America Return To God?

By Rev Bill Woods

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

“Nothing Happened Today”
    – Britain’s King George III wrote the day’s activities in his diary: “July 4, 1776–

      Nothing happened today.” — Nothing happened?!!!!

America was born that day! King George.

    – Her birth marked an epoch in history for the cause of human freedom.

For nearly 245 years (it will be on July 4), we’ve celebrated our independence — our right to do as we please in governing our own lives. What a wonderful country we live in — despite all its faults and failures.

    – What wonderful freedoms the citizens of the USA have enjoyed and taken for  granted!

One of these freedoms is FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

    – We’ve been able to believe or worship anybody or anything we want — no one  has told us differently until a year ago when the Government shut down the Churches because of Covid 19.

Thousands of people in our Armed Forces have paid the supreme sacrifice of dying to provide and maintain our Freedoms that we seem to take for granted!

  • Originally Memorial Day was a day set aside to remember the heavy price that’s been paid in blood and sacrifice for our freedoms.
  • What a shame that it’s been, for the most part, turned into a day of pic-nics, sports contests and frivolous activities.

Many thousands of Christians around the world have died for trying to worship God and we’ve just taken this right for granted each and every year.

    – Yet in America — a country established for that very right — many won’t give God the time of day, much less their lives.

What happened that made millions now celebrate “Freedom from Religion” instead of the “Freedom of Religion?”

Many have tried and succeeded to get God kicked out of our schools, sporting events, public places and work places.

It’s not the Hindu gods or the Muslims’ Allah — it’s not the philosophy of reincarnation or the New Age, it’s not homosexuality or condom distribution they want out.

    – It’s Jehovah God, it’s Jesus Christ.                                                                               

    – “Spiritualism” has taken the place of Christianity.

      – Spiritualism puts self on the throne and religion in general.

       – Christianity — the founding guide for America — is under attack.

Way back in April 1994, The Reader’s Digest carried an article by former Secretary of Education, William Bennett:   “What Really Ails America”:

He said, “Today, much of society ridicules and mocks those who are serious about their faith.

    – America’s only respectable form of bigotry is bigotry against religious people.

      – And the only reason for hatred of religion is it forces us to confront matters many would  prefer to ignore.

To a great extent our society has gotten what it wanted – A society without God.

    – But what good has it done?”

 Bennett continued, “Last year I compiled The Index of Leading Cultural Indicators, a statistical portrait of American behavioral trends of the past three decades. Among the findings: Since 1960, while the gross domestic product has nearly tripled, violent crime has increased at least 560 percent. Divorces have more than doubled. The percentage of children in single-parent homes has tripled. And by the end of the decade 40% of all American births and 80% of minority births will occur out of wedlock.”
    – These are not good things to get used to!

The United States leads the world in murder, rape and violent crime.

    – At the same time, our elementary-school students rank at or near the bottom in tests of math and science skills.

      – Since 1960, average SAT scores in our high schools have dropped 75 points.

In 1940, teachers identified the top problems in America’s schools as: talking out of turn, chewing gum, making noise and running in the hall.

    – In 1990, teachers listed drugs, alcohol, pregnancy, suicide, rape and assault.
      – These aren’t good things to get used to, either.
        – We’ve become desensitized to the cultural rot that is setting in.

          – People have lost their capacity for shock, disgust and outrage.

During the 1992 Los Angeles riots, Damian Williams was filmed crushing an innocent man’s skull with a brick, while Henry Watson held the victim down.

    – When Williams finished, he did a victory dance.

      – Lawyers for Watson and William’s built a legal defense on the premise that people can’t be held accountable for getting caught up in mob violence.

   One juror told the New York Times, “I guess they were in the wrong place at the wrong time”

          – When these men were acquitted on most counts, the cry wasn’t outrage, but relief.
            – This isn’t a good thing to get used to. What’s the answer?

Bennett concluded:


Today we’re in a struggle for the country we love.

    – We must push hard against an age that’s pushing hard against us.

All those statistics I sighted were from 1994!   27 years ago!

Things haven’t improved, in fact they’re much worse now!

  • Today we have riots in our major cities as “Black Lives Matter protest” take over cities and destroy lives and property.  (Don’t misunderstand,  know that black lives matter, but so do blue lives, brown lives, white lives–ALL LIVES MATTER AND ARE PRECIOUS TO JESUS AND ALL LIVES  SHOULD BE TREATED WITH RESPECT!)

There’s a move on to defund the police and fire departments while crime and violence is running rampant.  If that happens we “ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Our free elections have become a mockery!

Our money and economy are on the verge of collapse!

  • Too many people are pushing for a Marxist style government because they don’t understand what will happen if they get their way!

Today, there is so much confusion over sexual orientation.  Somehow we’ve identified 57 different genders!

  • Someone wrote:  “There are many different gender identities, including male, female, transgender, gender neutral, nonbinary, agender, pangender, genderqueer, two-spirit, third gender, and all, none or a combination of these.
  • Isn’t that stupid!  God made 2 genders–male and female!
  • People need to stick with the gender they were born with and life will be better!  If you don’t know your gender, your birth certificate can give you a hint.

 You know, if America would finally have full employment and greater economic growth – if we have cities of gold and alabaster – but our children haven’t learned to walk in goodness, justice and mercy, then America, no matter how gilded, has failed.
    – Don’t surrender. Get mad. Get in the fight.  Do something!  I don’t like the language, but that 1976 movie where the actor said,   (“I want you to get up, go your window, open it and say, I’M AS MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!)

I don’t suggest that, but he did have something in what he said, we need to get some righteous indignation and take a stand for Jesus Christ and Christians!

I can’t imagine how those who died on the battle field to insure our freedoms would feel if they could see our Nation today!


How can we turn our nation back to God? Can it even be done? Yes if we are willing to pay the price!
    – We can make a difference!    —  2 Chronicles 7:14if 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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Let’s look at this promise:1. IF MY PEOPLE WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME…                                                                    .  

– There can’t be “finger-pointing” when returning to God. He’s talking to us, His Church.  Judgment always begins at the House of God.

2.  WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE…
    –
It’s good to be proud Americans as long as we still bow to God.
        – Prayer is never obsolete, outdated or too late.

3. .AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS…
– We’re notorious for repenting but not turning. Look what happened after 9 11!

      Churches filled, but there was no repentance!


      – Repentance means to turn from sin–180 degrees. — Be sorry for our sins, Confess, not just because we got caught, but have real remorse about how we’ve hurt God.  And then, really confess them to God, and quit sinning.                    

  • Do we love evil too much to turn from it?

    4. THEN I (GOD) WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN…
          – God’s waiting to hear from us. — He’s longing for America to return to  
  •         Him.

    5.  AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND…
        – God’s Forgiveness is available to all who will turn to God.
          – Healing awaits all who turn.

    Can America return to God?
    If America wants to – YES!  Do we want to?

    God’s blessed our country.

It’s a blessing worth preserving through prayer and devotion to God inspite of those who want to tear our nation down.

      – Unless we serve God we will live in bondage.

We have been so blessed to have the Freedom we enjoy, but it isn’t guaranteed to always be there!  It takes commitment on our part to keep it.  There’s a cycle we need to be aware of:

From Bondage to Spiritual Faith
From Spiritual Faith to Great Courage
From Great Courage to Liberty
From Liberty to Abundance
From Abundance to Complacency
From Complacency to Apathy
From Apathy to Governmental Dependence
From Governmental Dependency back to Bondage
WHERE ARE WE TODAY?


Christianity and patriotism have a lot in common. It’s significant that our patriotic hymn “My County, ’Tis of Thee”, was written by a Baptist preacher, Samuel Francis Smith.

The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by a Baptist minister, Francis Bellamy.

The words, “In God We Trust,” on our coins, are traced to Rev. W.R. Watkinson of Ridleyville, Pennsylvania.

  – He wrote a letter of concern to the Honorable S.P. Chase, on November 13,1861.

Seven days later Mr. Chase wrote to James Pollock, Director of the U.S. Mint saying: “No nation can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense. The trust of our people in God should be declared on our national coins. Will you cause a device to be prepared without delay with a motto expressing in the finest and tersest words possible, this national recognition.”

The “under God” added to pledge in 1954 while President Eisenhower was in Office.

The President of Princeton, Reverend John Witherspoon (Presbyterian) was the only clergyman to sign the Declaration of Independence.
    – History books have nearly forgotten him and his far-reaching influence on democracy.  FYI, We live in a Republic, not a Democracy like Nancy Palosi keeps saying.                                                                             

– John Witherspoon personally taught several of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, nine of them were graduates of Princeton.

When he signed The Declaration of Independence, Witherspoon said: “There is a tide in the affairs of men, a spark. We perceive it now before us. To hesitate is to consent to our own slavery. That noble instrument upon the table, that insures immortality to its author, should be subscribed this very morning by every pen in this house. He that will not respond to its accents, and strain every nerve to carry into effect its provisions, is unworthy of the name of free man. For my own part, of property I have some; of reputation, more. That reputation is staked, that property is pledged on the issue of this contest; and although these gray hairs must soon descend into the sepulcher, I would infinitely rather they descend thither by the hand of the executioner than desert at this crisis the sacred cause of my country.”

There’s one other area we must look at if we want to save the USA.

    – That’s how we’re treating Israel.

America is married to 2 ancient brothers. (Sons of Abraham:  Ishmael and Isaac.)

    – From Ishmael we want his oil.

      – The 2nd one, Isaac, is because of guilt over how we turned away during the Holocaust while 6 million Jews were needlessly slaughtered.

God said in Genesis 12:3 —I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

    – God’s has blessed the USA because we’ve stood with Israel since May 14, 1948.

Our Covenant with the Arabs won’t change because we want oil.

Our Covenant with Israel won’t change so we find ourselves caught in the eye of the prophetic storm.

In 1991, the 1st President Bush initiated the Madrid Peace Process.

    – This was designed to force Israel to exchange land for peace.

     – Israel was to give the Arabs the West Bank, Golan Heights, Gaza, and Jerusalem in exchange for peace with the Arabs.

Please note, there are no Jews living in Gaza.  The News Media tried to say the Jews had settled in Gaza and were refusing to leave.  Untrue!  Gaza is settled by the Palestinians and Hamas and other Gaza -based militant groups.

The problem with the Madrid Peace Package is God has promised the land to Israel in an everlasting Covenant and whoever divides this land will face Judgment and be destroyed by God.

    – Zechariah and Joel are explicit about how God will judge the nations that attempt to divide His land.

In October, 1991, President Bush and Russian Premier, Mikhail Gorbachev sponsored the Madrid Land for Peace Conference.  This was the beginning of many catastrophes.

    – While they were conducting the Conference the Perfect Storm developed (11/1/1991) in the N.E. Atlantic sending crashing 30 foot waves into Bush’s Kennebunkport home in Maine.

On August 24, 1991, the Madrid Conference convened in Washington D.C.

    – That same day Hurricane Andrew (largest up until then in U.S. history) pummeled Louisiana and Florida — devastating storm happened same time Israel’s land being discussed in D.C.

January 15, 1994, President Clinton and Syrian President Assad were in Geneva, Switzerland, calling upon Israel to leave the Golan Heights.

    – Within 24 hours a major earthquake hit in the center of Northridge, California, producing the largest earthquake and 2nd largest disaster in U.S. History.

Many of us watched Israel leaving Gaza.

    – August 24, 2005, the day the final Jews were evicted from Gaza and Northern Samaria, tropical depression 12 formed near the Bahamas.

      – Within 24 hours it was Tropical Storm Katrina.

        – Within 72 hours it was Hurricane Katrina hitting S.W. Florida.

          – 72 hours later it hit Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama producing the largest disaster in this country’s history that dwarfed 9-11, Hurricane

           Andrew, and the Northridge earthquake in size and intensity.

God has blest the United States, but He hasn’t forgotten His Promises to Israel.

Has America felt the wrath of God for the recent stance America’s taken in the Mid-East?

 – Has God sent us a message through the uncanny natural disasters that coincide with key events?  Is it all just a coincidence?

Obama, now Biden, has treated Israel with contempt!

President Trump treated Israel with respect and we prospered during his term.

  – Biden has consistently attacked the Bible values of Christians, and Jews since taking office.

Enjoy your Memorial Day celebrations, but remember it’s more than just a National Play Day!

  • It’s a day when we remember those who paid the ultimate cost for the Freedom we enjoy and it’s a day when we should thank Almighty God for letting us live in this Blessed Land.    

Remember also, GOD’S STILL IN CONTROL AND GOD’S WILL – WILL BE DONE!

    – Are you prepared?

The updated version of Rev Bill Woods’ book “There Is Still Power In The Blood” will be available soon.

VIDEO Conservatism and Race: A Positive Path Forward

On April 23, the great Robert Woodson delivered the inaugural lecture in Hillsdale’s Christ Chapel Drummond Lecture Series. His topic was “Conservatism and Race: A Positive Path Forward.”

Robert L. Woodson is the founding president of the Woodson Center, an organization dedicated to improving low-income neighborhoods, promoting civics education, improving race relations, and developing community leaders

A veteran of the civil rights movement, Woodson embraces what he calls “radical pragmatism” as the best way to improve the lives of “the least of God’s children.” His work at the Woodson Center seeks to ennoble and inspire the downtrodden rather than condescend to and coddle them. As my colleague David Whalen noted, “for decades, while public figures pose and wrangle about the poor and racial injustice, Robert Woodson has transformed the lives of many thousands. He does so because he understands responsibility, authentic human dignity, and the freedom through which people actually flourish. Where others just talk, Woodson has achieved near miracles.”

In recognition of his long and good service for America, Woodson was awarded Hillsdale’s Freedom Leadership Award.

Warm regards,

If You Want To Know The Future Of America Peer Into The Looking-Glass Of Europe

By William D. Howard

When Notre Dame Cathedral burned in 2019, it was symbolic of a greater European -wide collapse of religious faith which had already taken place.  That great cathedral, like most of the others in Europe, had long since passed from being a vibrant community of active worshipers, to an architectural show piece attracting millions of tourists, taking millions of photographs.

  The process which has brought about the death of Judeo-Christian culture in Europe is now being replicated in America. If America wants to know its grim future, it only has to consult the facts of present day European society. 

    From the earliest days of American history, religion played an outsized role. Even during the 1700’s when it was intellectually fashionable for some of our leaders like Thomas Jefferson to scoff at supernaturalism and prefer deism to theism, they still held tightly to the moral and spiritual truths expressed in the Holy Bible.  They could do without belief in miracles in general but not the necessary miracle of a creator God who established an unchanging moral order.  French philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville, who had visited America in the 1800’s, took particular note of America’s highly religious national character as compared to European society. He knew the horrors which French society was plunged into as a result of extreme, anti-religious, sentiment. The history of the world is littered with failed revolutions that promised to remake their societies, in a better image. The American Revolution is among the few which have actually succeeded.

  The bad news is that we are now no longer on the same path. We have opted for the European model.

   The last sixty years of American history reveal that we have been on a new path. It is a path that leads away from freedom and individual responsibility. It is a path that mistakes vice for freedom and socialism for progress and because Europe began this journey before us, we can now see our future, In their present

  If we begin with a comparison of religious practice, the surveys of American society show a number between 37% and 22% for Americans who attend weekly services.

    The average of these numbers which is below 30% is the lowest in modern American history but if you are a person of faith in Europe, you would be celebrating this as the sign of a “Great Religious “revival. The average church attendance for the countries of Northern Europe is 4%. There are only three countries in Europe where more than 10% of young people attend religious services on a weekly basis.

What must be understood are the characteristics of this new post-Judeo-Christian Europe?  What does the sociological data tell us is happening there?  Sociologists, psychologists and historians, all agree on one point, the family unit is the basis of all societies. The present European family is in a state of crisis. As much as we lament America’s high divorce rate of 53%, Europe’s is higher, in some countries reaching 60% but worse than the high divorce rates are the high out of wedlock birth rates and the huge increase in single parent families. The, “Max Planck Society” published the following in 2016,

“The significance of marriage slowly started to decline as early as 1970, a process linked to the advance of secularization in many countries… By 1990, the share of unmarried births had already increased fourfold… In many parts of Northern and Western Europe, there are already more births out of wedlock than births within marriage.”

  Needless to say the same process is taking place in America .The difference is America’s religious attendance was much higher than Europe’s when the process started. We are moving in the same direction as Europe but at a slower pace.

  The fact that European societies are still relatively prosperous  and orderly in spite of these demographic changes is only a testament to what historian Will Durant called , “… living in the after- glow of one’s faith”. No society will collapse immediately, but already these changes are showing themselves in a variety of dark statistics.

  The crisis in the European family is rapidly becoming a mental health crisis.   

  The most recent large scale study of Europe, covering 514 million people found that mental illness had increased to 38%.

  Based upon World Health Organization statistics, Europeans commit more suicide than the people of any other region of the world.  Russia has the highest rate, followed by other Eastern European nations all of which were until recent years ruled by Communist governments which viewed religion as taboo. Following these Eastern European nations the most secular parts of Western and Northern Europe have the next highest rates of suicide. The more traditional and culturally conservative parts of Europe have the lowest rates of suicide.   Lagging behind Europe, America is making great strides to catch-up. The CDC reported in 2018 that America now has the highest rate of suicide in 50 years.   

  In Europe this is not just a problem of highly depressed people wanting to end their lives. There is a concerted effort on the part of medical professionals to assist others in doing so. Belgium now carries the label of the, “world’s euthanasia capital” and even allows suicide by lethal injection for children.  

Following the same guiding principle of utility, Europe is now number four on the list of continents which carry-out the most abortions. The fact that the primary victim of an abortion is an unborn child without a voice makes the problem easier to ignore. Much harder to ignore is the explosion in Human Trafficking taking place in Europe.

  The Department of Homeland Security has described the problem of Human Trafficking, as a “… modern day form of slavery… among the world’s fastest growing criminal industries.” BusinessLine, reported in 2019 that, “… children now account for 30 per cent of those being trafficked… Trafficking for sexual exploitation is the most prevalent form in European countries…”

  Three of the top ten areas for sex tourism are located in Europe and all the others are located in poor less developed regions of the world. In America the same thing is happening. Feminists, pro-homosexual rights advocates, cultural celebrities, are using terms like, “Pan sexual”, “gender fluidity” and “One Love” to begin the major re-education of American society.  Harvard professor Sarah Richardson a supporter of this task has described the necessary change in this way,

  “Young people will lead us in directions that we have never imagined… more and more young people are transcending gender norms… a more sophisticated view of gender seems to be everywhere we look…. Is expanding our ideas of identify and love.”

  Well the Europeans have both imagined and are realizing this “Brave New World” and the “New Morality” looks a lot like the “Old Immorality”. The imagined utopian welfare state of Europe is now being realized for what it is, a dystopian society where the soul of mankind dies and selfish appetites reign. In America we are faithfully re-tracing the European steps which include: The death of faith, the death of the family, and the de-humanization of mankind.

Cancel Culture: The Most Dangerous Virus Infecting the Church Today

by SHANE IDLEMAN

By now, most know what the cancel culture is: something you did in your past will be used to silence, stop, and “cancel” you. Whether it’s Mike Lindell, whose pillow company lost many retailers after he publicly questioned the election, or Goya Foods, who upset people when they thanked President Trump, the cancel culture doesn’t tolerate opposing views. So much for being “tolerant.”

Do you see the irony? The cancel culture protects Cuties on Netflix and loves Cardi B lyrics, but they can’t stand Bible verses, worship songs, or views that oppose them. Dr. Seuss is bad, Dumbo is a racist, and Speedy Gonzales offends. Granted, things from the past may need to be changed from time to time, but if you focus on children’s books and cartoon characters and say nothing against child porn, human trafficking, little kids being intentionally confused about their gender, or the killing of innocent children in the womb, you’ve lost all credibility.

The Church—Friend or Foe?

I am not especially surprised by the actions of the world; it is simply being true to its fallen nature. Rather, it’s the actions of the so-called church that are disturbing. In 2020, the cancel culture in the church became a reality for me. I was scheduled to speak at a church in Palos Verdes, California, but when the assistant pastor found out that my political views differed from his, he complained to the elders, and just like that, I was canceled—never mind the fact that my message didn’t even touch on politics. Listen to it at #1 below, and let me know if a church should cancel this type of message or if it’s exactly what we need to hear.

I received another surprise in May of 2020. I had been corresponding with Pastor Jack Hibbs about opening our church on May 31. Once we decided to open, I was shocked by how many pastors came against us. I even shared with one prominent pastor in my area how happy I was when Pastor John MacArthur and the elders at Grace Community Church also opened. To my utter dismay, he wasn’t happy at all.

By this time, the shenanigans and the agendas of many political leaders were becoming apparent (more at #2 below). We not only had a legitimate virus to deal with but we had agendas and ulterior motives working against us as well. Would churches capitulate and use Romans 13 out of context, or would they meet to fast, pray, and contend for the truth? Would they be cowards or watchmen?

Around this time, our local newspaper also canceled my articles, which had been featured for over a decade. Many liberal Christians no doubt complained and swayed the editor. Facebook also shadow banned me, causing our audience to drop from a quarter-million people per month to around ten thousand. Apparently, my views didn’t fit their narratives. They, along with YouTube, also banned my video on vaccines and immunity and removed some of my sermons. (The banned video is #3 below.)

“My View is the Right View,” So They Say

One local pastor who still hadn’t opened his church a year into COVID told me that I was actually hurting the gospel because of my views. Apparently, you’re not allowed to share solid biblical teaching if you hold beliefs that oppose liberal “Christians.” “You’re hurting the gospel with your views unless your views align with my views,” so they say.

Then in July 2020 I was hit again. We held church services at JetHawk Stadium in Lancaster, California, and it wasn’t primarily unbelievers who were complaining. Other Christians and pastors were gossiping and backbiting. It is telling that none of them seemed to be excited that over 10,000 people attended the 4-month event and we had over 150 baptisms, the majority of which were spontaneous.

Sadly, within the church, the cancel culture is often fueled by jealousy and arrogance. “They don’t think like I think, so God cannot be using them,” goes the reasoning. There have been other groups throughout the ages who behaved in similar ways—the Pharisees come to mind, as well as the pastors and denominations who have stood against many of the past revivals simply because God had the audacity to use someone else and in a way that differed from them.

So while the cancel culture is not a new thing, it is new in America, and it’s on the rise. Our nation is increasingly polarized, with people unable to have civil conversations with those who have dissimilar views, and who actually take pleasure in destroying the lives and livelihoods of those who dare to have a different opinion.

Pleasing Man Rather Than God

As I wrote last week in my article on why churches should open, all pastors relate to COVID differently depending on their perspective and circumstances. They are under tremendous pressure and need more grace, not less. I’m sure that many do much good in their communities, and for that, I applaud them. However, I don’t think cowardliness should go unchecked, for “iron sharpens iron” (Proverbs 27:17).

Let me state up front that without the Spirit of God, I’m a coward. Without deep seasons of prayer and fasting, I’m weak. Without extended times of heartfelt worship where I weep, repent, and realign my heart with Christ, I would drift from God. My heart breaks for the church, but the truth is that many Christians are being influenced by social media rather than by God’s Spirit and spend more time criticizing others rather than looking in the mirror and more time reading left-leaning liberals instead of reading and applying God’s Word. Like Samson, they do not know that the Spirit has departed (Judges 16:20).

Sadly, many pastors are joining the cancel culture, keeping their church doors locked and aligning with ungodly organizations because they have either lost the compass of truth or the boldness of the Spirit—or possibly both. They are distant from Christ, and therefore seek to be pleasers of men rather than lovers of God: “For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:10).

They may cancel people, ideas, concepts, videos, articles, and sermons, but they can never cancel God!

VIDEO My Thoughts On Why America Is In Its Current Situation – Conservative Age Rising!

My Thoughts On Why America Is In Its Current Situation

This post is unlike my other articles. Here are my personal thoughts on why America’s in its current situation:

If churches hadn’t stopped preaching hell, fire, and brimstone, America wouldn‘t be so screwed up right now.

The raw truth puts the fear of God in people! How many of us can truly count on one hand the number of people they know who they believe possess the fear of God? When was the last time you heard someone say they weren’t going to do something because they didn’t want to go to hell? Or how about this one, “I want to do what pleases the Lord”. Conviction is at an all-time low (in the church and the world).

Our ears have been tickled with lollipop and gumdrop teachings to the point where we think and unconsciously view Jesus as a “pushover, hippie genie”!

Read the Book of John and you will find that Jesus was INTOLERANT of ALL sin, EXTREMELY direct, sugarcoated NOTHING, and still was pure love and showed compassion. Did you know that Jesus’ heart races every time He looks at you? He’s madly in love with you.

The reason why He preached more about Hell than Heaven, is because He doesn’t want to lose us and desperately doesn’t want us to go there. He preached warnings for safety! It breaks His heart every time a soul is eternally lost. It’s unfathomable to imagine a life forever without God, lacking EVERYTHING, being void of all that is good. Friends, family, companionship, laughter, hope, rest, and even food are all nonexistent in the abyss.

We all hear the question so many typically ask, “Why would a loving God send someone to hell?” Yet, the truth is, people send themselves there. If you see someone walking toward a cliff and you yell to them, “Wrong way! There’s a cliff! You’re going to fall off and die if you don’t go the other way!” But the foolish person responds with either, “I’ll take my chances”, “I don’t believe you”, or “all roads lead to safety”, then that person who was warned ends up falling off the cliff and dying, who sent them there? THEY DID!

All things good come from God and Him alone. You can know the entire Bible by heart and still end up in H-E-double-hockey-sticks. Now is the absolute WORST time to be uncertain about where you’ll go if you die. Death does not discriminate against age, race, gender, nationality, or religion. You won’t just cease to exist. You’ll exist somewhere forever, but the question is, “Where?”

There’s one of two places to choose from—Heaven or Hell. Heaven will give you a forever warm reception, while in hell, you’d be an eternal unwelcomed guest.

I’ve had four near-death experiences and the first time I was NOT ready and truly uncertain if I’d see Jesus face to face. Oh, and guess what, I was a Christian! By God’s grace, He rescued me every time!

You see, some may have said a prayer at the altar once and thought they were heaven-bound, but if there hasn’t been a TRUE, genuine transformation of your life, thoughts, and speech, then it’d be wise to do a self-examination of the heart, because that’s where it starts. When Jesus enters your heart, there’s an evident transformation and your surroundings will know it. You can’t fool God.

The reason why America is in the state that it’s in today is because of the failure of the church. The church is what leads by example. Things can turn around for the good, but it starts with the church, first.

If you want to be like Jesus, then you’ve got to teach like Jesus!

Hell is the default. Heaven is your CHOICE. Jesus is the WAY! If you haven’t already, receive or rededicate your life to Him today. He’s the ONLY God Who thought you were worth dying for…and ACTUALLY DID! That’s love.


A New Conservative Age Is Rising!


Biden would resume Obama’s war on Christianity: Dem memo declares white Christians country’s foremost “national security threat”

January 02, 2021 by: JD Heyes

Image: Biden plans to resume Obama’s war on Christianity: Dem memo declares white Christians country’s foremost “national security threat”

(Natural News) Democrat Joe Biden’s message of wanting to ‘unify our divided country’ suffered another credibility blow in the wake of a newly uncovered Democratic memo that warns two-thirds of our country is a bigger threat than China, Russia, Iran and North Korea combined.

A report prepared especially for the (potentially) incoming Biden administration from the Secular Democrats of America PAC provides guidance to “boldly restore a vision of constitutional secularism and respect in the land for religious and intellectual pluralism.”

And here we thought that after four years of President Donald Trump that his efforts to uphold the right of Christians — and Jews, and Muslims, and whomever else — to practice freely, as outlined in the First Amendment, was him restoring constitutionality. 

In any event, the PAC says it “represents secular Democratic individuals and organizations” while advocating for “secular governance” as well as the promotion of “respect and inclusion of nonreligious Americans,” while mobilizing “nonreligious voters.”

Again, that same First Amendment guaranteeing Americans the right to worship freely also lacks a provision that mandates a religious society or the practice of a certain religion. So — if there can be no forcing of religion on Americans, why does this group think it can force secularism on all of us?

We digress.

Just The News reports that the proposal was formally presented to the Biden team by Democratic Reps. Jamie Raskin and Jared Huffman, co-chairmen of the Congressional Freethought Caucus; it was also endorsed by Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney.

“We’ve offered the new administration a roadmap to restore our basic constitutional values and protect science, reason and public health in American government,” Raskin and Huffman said in a joint statement. (Related: Why rioters will eventually turn their rage on Christianity if not stopped.)

The outlet notes further: 

The proposal calls for Biden’s team to work with Congress and governors to “advance a secular agenda at all levels of government, taking into account the current makeup of the federal courts and new, unfavorable precedents that your administration will have to contend with.”

In the document, the group argues that Trump has “empowered the religious right in ways no other administration has before, making significant advances in enacting their Christian nationalist agenda.”

The proposal outlines recommendations for reversing certain policies and “proactively” implementing new rules that would “restore secularism to federal governance and disentangle entrenched religious interests from federal policy.”

Again, what is inherently wrong with Trump ‘empowering’ people of faith within his administration? Understand that this proposal would not have been given to Team Biden unless these three lawmakers had a problem with the empowerment of religious persons within the Trump White House — none of whom were pushing to mandate Christianity across the country. 

Only people who do not believe in any religion are ‘suitable’ for government, according to this PAC.

But it gets worse: These bozos liken Christians with a threat to America’s “national security.”

“The rise of white Christian nationalism is a national security threat,” read the document. “We recommend you: encourage the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice to dedicate resources to de-radicalization programs aimed at hate groups, including, but not limited to, white nationalists; increase monitoring of such groups, including the online environment, and take action to address increased hate crimes toward minority faith communities; and shift rhetoric to label violent white nationalist extremists as terrorists.”

That is outrageous. If there are any threats to America’s national security that emanate from within the country, they are coming from the insane left: Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and burgeoning anarchist organizations on both the left and right.

But you can see what this is really about.

There is no bigger impediment to authoritarian rule than a belief among the populace in something higher and more divine than ‘big government.’ And what better way to destroy the fundamental right to not only believe in a higher authority but to worship that higher authority than to declare those who do to be our most dangerous threat.

The Marxist Democratic left hates America as it was founded, period. This is just another modicum of proof.

Columbus Plan: Sail West to Set up Trading Post to Finance Crusade Against Moors !

El Aemer El Mujaddid September 24, 2016

1400031915-1

Less well known was a voyage by Columbus to the Gold Coast in West Africa in 1481, sponsored by King John II of Portugal. In contrast to the Eurocentric myth of disorder and barbarism prevalent in Africa, during this voyage Columbus encountered civilized communities and well-established states with very complex social, political, and economic structures. At the time of Columbus’s visit, the most impressive medieval Muslim Moorish (West African) empire, Songhay, was still in existence. Its noted center of scholarship, Timbuktu, the home of the world-renowned higher educational institution, the Sankoré University, still possessed a great deal of its splendor. Columbus who visited the Portuguese fortress of Elmina on the Gold Coast, was impressed by the riches of the land, especially its gold. But as an explorer, Columbus learned valuable lessens in geography and oceanography.

This undoubtedly sparked his interest in a voyage westward across the Atlantic, which he erroneously believed would take him to India and establish direct access to the coveted riches of the Orient. More importantly, Columbus’s voyage to West Africa may have laid the groundwork for the first contact between that part of Africa and the Americas. A few West Africans were said to have returned with him to Europe and eventually accompanied him on his voyages to the New World between 1492 and 1504. Some scholars, however, have suggested the possibility of an African presence in the Americas before the arrival of Columbus.

changer-1

The argument is that some West African people, probably from the Senegambia area, were known to Native Americans prior to arrival of Columbus. The most forceful argument along these lines has been provided by Rutgers linguist and anthropologist Ivan Van Sertima, who marshalled an array of archaeological, historical, and botanical evidence to argue his case. The United States and West Africa: Interactions and Relations pg. 18 Because Columbus has been such an important figure in the collective imagination of Americans, what we make of him affects both how we view our history and imagine our future. In what follows, I wish, first to detangle Columbus’s motivations from the accusations that have been brought against him and then to trace briefly the apocalyptic scenario and the place of Jerusalem that figured so centrally to his quest. To distance ourselves from his religious views obscures how deeply influential they have been, and continue to be in our national and political consciousness. Columbus and the Quest for Jerusalem: How Religion Drove the Voyages that Led to America pg. 236

The principal factor which governed Columbus’s life and motivated his activities was—as he put it in a letter to the Spanish monarchs—to spread the light of the Gospel throughout the world and enlist the newly converted peoples in the life-and-death war with the empire of Muhammad. His ultimate goals included the “recovery” of the Holy Land, especially Jerusalem, in preparation for the Kingdom of God. In fact, it was his deep religious convictions in prophecy which, according to The New Millennial Manual, enabled him to convince Ferdinand and Isabella to finance his “Enterprise of the Indies.” And the “Enterprise” was to be the first stage in a new Crusade which would enable the Spanish monarchs to “recapture” the Holy Land and restore the Christian faith there. Throughout his life, Columbus insisted that Providence was always guiding his steps and directing his efforts.

In fact, at the end of his first voyage, and in a letter to the Spanish court dated February 15, 1492, Columbus said that the Bible was his lifetime roadmap for the fulfillment of divine prophecies and the rebuilding of Zion. This letter was subsequently printed and translated into many European languages. In it, Columbus summed up his global program “to conquer the world, spread the Christian faith, and regain the Holy Land and the Temple Mount.” During the last voyage (1502-04), Columbus recorded in his journals that he heard voices and saw visions of God urging him on to carry out His mission. This belief in a Providential mission is what motivated Columbus to so relentlessly pursue his project of the “Enterprise of the Indies.” He wrote:

Who would doubt that this light, which urged me on with a great haste continuously, without a moment’s pause, came to you in a most deep manner, as it did to me? In this my voyage to the Indies, Our Lord wished to perform [a] very evident miracle in order to console me and others in the matter of this other voyage to the Holy Sepulcher [Jerusalem]. To realize the originality as well as the significance of Columbus’s missionary efforts and zeal to fulfill the “prophecies,” one should remember that his campaign preceded the Protestant Reformation and the resulting emphasis on Old Testament prophecies and missionary drive.

This zeal and literal interpretation of sacred prophecies led Delno West to describe Columbus as “the first American hero with all the rights and privileges, myths and legends, and criticisms the title carries.” In his obsession with the rebuilding of Zion and the preparation for the Coming Kingdom, Columbus anticipated the early Puritan settlers of the New World, the nineteenth-century end-times churches and missionary establishment, and the present-day American grand plans for the world. In essence, Columbus’s program is a roadmap for the modern campaign of the Christian Right in America today.
