On a planet where tolerance is King, because of the generosity shown to it by the U.S. and itís God of freedom and respect for thought, it seemed odd to me that at our time of greatest need, so many in the world simply abandoned us with regard to the situation in Iraq. There was a time when oppressive leaders were the antagonist not those with noble intent. However it's not so astonishing I suppose.
Our Great Nation has changed over the past several decades in ways that can only be explained by, the onslaught of liberal socialism coupled with the christian communities gross miscalculation of the meaningful signifigance of Gods Word, the confusion surrounding the gender issue and the role of the traditional nuclear family, especially the fathers role (in relation to the Creator of masculinity).
Hence, the moral decay of our present culture.
Here we are now, the most powerful nation in the world, straining to maintain a sense of nationalism, a "Posture of Patriotism" during a time of war, while being erroneously portrayed by our own media as a repressive government hellbent on a war built on lies and corruption.
"In a thinking society how could this have happened?"
Perception, how we view ourselves and the world around us. Who are we? Who is God? Where is He in all of this? What is our responsibility as Christian Americans?
We've been falling down that slippery slope that we all keep talking about for too long. If we donít stand up against these extremists whoever they are, terrorist or liberal (they both seem to have many of the same friends), then in the words of Dr. D. James Kennedy, founder of the Center for Reclaiming America"...
"We will have missed our dance with providence, by not meeting our true destiny with courage!"
THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW!
I would stress the diligence of all Americans, at this crucial time in our nations history, to pray, to reflect on the great mercy found in the Providence of Almighty God and to stay close to His bosom.
Only then can we hear the true beating of His heart.
We began as an idea in a land filled with idealists who would rather die than to allow tyrrany, to quench the fires of freedom that burned so brightly in their hearts. They knew that they were part of something much larger than themselves. The world now had a place to go where people could worship the God of Israel in spirit and truth, because of their bravery and sacrifice. How humbling that must have been for them. I will NEVER forget it!
These are our times, this is our destiny!
