In a day when the foundation of our country seems to be crumbling
away in so many ways and at breakneck speed, it’s time to reflect
a little on our origins.  Families and respect for each other are
in free-fall and actually abetted by our corrupt government.
President Carter’s Department of Education has become a debacle
of politicization and indoctrination, twisting young minds with
the worst that the world has to offer.  General Omar Bradley, in
his Armistice Day address in 1948, stated: “We have grasped the
mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount.  The
world has achieved brilliance without conscience.  Ours is a
world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.”

We have come so far; yes, we have “built the house.”  But in the
words of Benjamin Franklin: “We have been assured in the Sacred
Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain
that build it.”  (Psalms 127:1) Our forefathers relied heavily on
Holy Scripture for guidance, advice, laws and our Constitution.
God’s laws and wisdom are trodden down, thrown out of public and
replaced with the ACLU’s Mein Kampf, Mikey Weinstein’s hatred of,
and any mention of God and Christ Jesus; and sexual perversity
that defies description.  If William Bradford, leading the colony
that settled at Plymouth Rock in 1620, had visions that some day
in the future when his new country would be totally settled,
Christians would be forbidden jobs, and even fired for believing
marriage was meant for one man and one woman and teachers would
be fired for having a Bible on their desk, I do believe that as
bad as the world was for them at that time, he and the Pilgrims
would have stayed in Holland or even England where they were
severely persecuted.  A Statehouse where the enemy is feted and
sexual depravity is honored, but prayer is rejected …

Schools that mandate teaching of evolution while rejecting God’s
creation was on Dr. Wernher von Braun’s mind when, in a published
article in 1974, he wrote: “To be forced to believe only one
conclusion – that everything in the universe happened by chance –
would violate the very objectivity of science itself … What
random process could produce the brains of man or the system of
the human eye?  The evolutionists cannot visualize a Designer.
Well, can a physicist visualize an electron? .. What strange
rationale makes some physicists accept the inconceivable electron
as real while refusing to accept the reality of a Designer on the
ground that they cannot conceive Him?”

Finally, considering the curse that our own present president has
laid on our military, with help from atheists and the ACLU, it is
a bit consoling to turn to General Robert E. Lee for what could
still be great spiritual power to our troops.  In April 1864, he
ordered his troops to observe a day of fasting, humiliation and
prayer, in concurrence with his leader, Confederate President
Jefferson Davis:

“Soldiers!  Let us humble ourselves before the Lord, our God,
asking through Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, beseeching
the aid of the God of our forefathers in the defense of our homes
and our liberties, thanking Him for His past blessings, and
imploring their continuance upon our cause and our people.”*

There are good people and organizations that keep fighting for a
more decent society, in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Fight on, dear troops, fight on!  Though the ship seems to be
sinking, more bailers could help.
