Many observers of the passing scene regardless of the date have noted that in any battle be it physical or philosophical victory is determined to a large measure by the level of the warriors commitment on either side.

In revolutionary times, the Scottish Presbyterian clergyman/Declaration signer, John Witherspoon serving at what is now Princeton University said, "If your cause is just, if your principles are pure, and if your conduct is prudent, you need not fear the multitude of opposing hosts."

When just one of the above keys is absent, chaos often results. That Dr. Witherspoon's formula speaks to serious people in the ongoing culture war is beyond question. Look at the key words: Just. Principle. Conduct. Prudent. In your personal life it is a very good exercise to take each word, hold it against your thoughts, actions and the Word of the Lord honestly answering, "Do I measure up?"

Will you/your group acknowledge some power or need higher than the Word of God?

The Witherspoon motto during his time at Princeton was, “Do not live useless and die contemptible.” His students included 9 future cabinet members, 21 senators, 39 congressmen 3 Supreme Court justices, 12 governors, a vice president and a president.

1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
