“In the Bible, Jesus says “Let the children come to me” — but parents and teachers in Utah have decided it’ll have to wait until high school.
At Davis School District, located north of Salt Lake City, the 27-book collection of Christian scripture has been shelved for students until they enter high school.
The district has removed the Bible from their elementary and middle school libraries after receiving a petition to ban the holy book due to its descriptions of sex and violence.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
When I first saw this on Fox and Friends, I said, “No way. Why would “parents and teachers” want to take the Bible out of schools?”
And then I realized how stupid my question was.
These had to be Far Left Democrats or very ignorant people.
I just inadvertently repeated myself.
But, I digress…
The Bible, the Incarnate Word of God, stands in the way of the Far Left’s indoctrination of our school children in the belief that there is nothing wrong with a massive central government taking care of them from cradle to grave.
Once you take away a child’s moral base, which is what American Christianity has always provided, along with strong traditional family units, then it is easier to teach a child that good is evil and evil is good.
And since the Far Left Democrats have already been waging a decades-long Jihad against the American tradition of strong traditional family units, they feel like there’s nothing stopping them from the complete radical change of America into a Cultural and Political Marxist Nation.
Because Americans have been fighting back against the sexualization and grooming of our children and grandchildren by insisting that inappropriate-aged sexually-explicit books be moved out of elementary and middle shool libraries, those who are hellbent on grooming childen are now turning their sights on the Bible in order to clear away a roadblock to their evil plans.
That’s right. I called it evil because it is.
We are living in Biblical Times.
The Bible tells us that men and women will turn away from what is right and just, becoming lovers of perversion and self.
It tells us that there will be a falling away from God’s Word and from the message that brings us to repentance, grace, and salvation through Jesus Christ.
Just as Americans have been fighting back against the sexualization of our children in public schools, so must Americans fight back against God’s Word being taken out of them.
Otherwise, our nation will suffer the same fate as the Israelites who worshiped the Golden Calf.
“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” – Matthew 12:25
Like most Americans, I have watched while the political ideology of a minority of amoral Cultural Marxists has been foisted upon average Americans via the propaganda spewed on the Cable News Channels 24 hours a day.
Politicians and pundits have been telling average Americans that we are bigoted White Supremacists if we do not accept the sexual grooming of children in our schools, including the evil brainwashing attempts to convince children that they are not boys and girls, but instead “Non-binary Transgendered People”.
We are even being told that our children and grandchildren are not “just” ours. They belong to the entire country… especially the Far Left Biden Administration, including the Department of Education.
That is what the Soviet Union and Communist China told their citizens, also.
The backlash at local School Board Meetings should have given the Far Left, the self-proclaimed “smartest people in the room,” a clue.
But, as witnessed by the almost $30 billion lost so far by Anheuser-Busch and Target due to their embracing of the “Tansgendered” Bud Light Spokesperson and Satanist-created Gay Pride Month Children’s clothing and accessories, their embracing of Wokeness and purposeful obtuseness has left them clueless.
What the “smartest people in the room” overlooked was the fact that the majority of Americans love their children and will do everything they can to fight the sick and evil politically-driven sexual grooming of them.
Oh, and they won’t support a company that has a perverted Transvestite as a spokesperson, either.
“Suicides among the youngest U.S. teenagers were rising for years before the pandemic — with school stress, social media and guns standing as potential factors, according to a new study.
Researchers found that between 2008 and 2018, the suicide rate among 13- and 14-year-olds nationwide more than doubled — from roughly two deaths per 100,000 teens in 2008, to five per 100,000 a decade later.
It was a stark reversal of a decline that began in the late-1990s.
And, in fact, suicide is now the leading cause of death for 13- and 14-year-olds in the United States…” (Courtesy Newsmax.com)
Guns? Guns can not fire themselves, nor can they personally interact with human beings on their own.
The fact of the matter is that kids are not getting the attention they need at home, and they’re not getting the non-political support that they need at school.
Nowadays, it takes both parents working in order to afford the basic necessities needed to raise a family.
That leaves very little time for the raising of a child. With children not getting the attention they need at home, they are naturally turning to the social media, the school, and their peers.
Public schools have become, for the most part, centers for the dissemination of Cultural Marxist propaganda designed to “make children think in a politically correct manner.”
Their friends can offer their opinions. However, they are being fed the same propaganda.
Nowadays, the majority of kids spend most of their time texting on their phones with other kids, playing video games, and talking about other students.
Kids today do not grow up playing outside and learning interpersonal communication skills.
In other words, they don’t know how to resolve conflict face-to-face, and they have never found out firsthand that there are actual real-world consequences for talking ugly and spreading false rumors about someone.
Even though they are communicating with each other electronically, kids today are living in isolation.
They have not learned how to be kind to one another.
They have not learned empathy.
Somehow, someway, parents and students need to start learning how to communicate with one another face-to-face.
Make no mistake. The family unit, as we know it, is under attack.
Today is the last day of Satancon 2023, a 3-day event being held in Boston by The Satanic Temple, an organization who claims not to worship Satan as a diety and also claims to have over 700,000 followers worldwide.
SatanCon 2023 features a retrospective on the 10-year history of the Temple and panels that include “Reclaiming the Trans Body,” “Deconstructing Your Religious Upbringing” and “Satanism and the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Coloe) Experience.”
There is a “satanic marketplace,” a satanic wedding chapel, and a featured “Witches’ Night” gala marking the ancient pagan holiday of May Eve that organizers say is sold out.
If y’all don’t worship Satan, why is your “organization” named The Satanic TEMPLE?
Tell it to the Internet Trolls. I’m not buying it.
Here’s a question to ponder:
Is all this upheaval our nation is feverishly attempting to recover from, with no help from “The Resistance”, “Antifa”, “The Far Left”, or whatever you want to call the Anti-American immature idiots supported by today’s Democratic Party, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?
If you look at 80% of the movies that Tinsel Town produces for public consumption nowadays, they seek to glorify the Powers of Darkness….and they seem to be very popular with young Americans.
Why is the Occult, including Satan and his demons, so fascinating to impressionable young Americans?
People who take the existence of Satan lightly eventually wind up in some sort of trouble, and those who worship Satan wind up in even greater trouble.
Back in the 1960s, the late, beautiful actress Jayne Mansfield posed for a series of publicity pictures with the Head Priest of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey. The pictures showing her with LaVey, included several shots of taking their version of Communion, simulating drinking blood from a goblet, offered by the priest. She even wore a pink and black medallion of Satan and the goat-headed Baphomet to the 1966 San Francisco Film Festival. Later, the beautiful actress died in a freak car accident in which she was decapitated.
Now, far be it from me to link one to the other. That is up for you to decide for yourself.
The reason that our nation is facing the difficulties we are is the belief by those, like the Founders of “The Satanic Temple”, who proclaim themselves to be the “smartest people in the room”, that they are above the old-fashioned, passe notions of morality and ethics, good and evil, and the Sovereignty of God.
In the opinion of this Christian American living in the Heartland, they have made a grave mistake.
Evil exists and these fools opened the door to Satan in our society a long time ago.
When it all comes crashing down around them, what are they going to say?
The Devil made me do it?
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” – Ephesians 6:12
I’m sitting here on a Saturday morning thinking about our country.
As a Christian Conservative, I realize that I am writing from the point of view that, if you listen to all the pundits and look at the weighted polls, is deemed to be not as popular as it once was.
I also realize that being 64 years-old, my upbringing has a lot to do with my viewpoint.
My father, as I have recounted in previous posts, landed on Nomandy Beach on D-Day, and was a caring, gentle Christian American who fought for his country and for the freedom of others.
My mother was one of 7 children of a barber. She worked hard all of her life and was stubborn and outspoken.
All that being said, here is what I see going on in our Sovereign Nation.
I see an undermining of traditional American faith and values which has been happening for three generations and is presently coming to a head in the form of the same dictatorial fascism which brave Americans like my father fought and died for to prevent it from destroying all that they held sacred.
This fascism has taken the form of government programs created by professional politicians to “help” Americans…and to make themselves rich.
These programs were also designed to take the power away from the American people and to centralize it in the form of a massive government that would run our lives from cradle to grave.
The proponents of this “central government” have tried for all these years to take the place of our parents and to be the ones who teach us how to feel about morality, faith, and each other. They told us that morality is relative and is based on whether something feels good sexually or helps us to “get ahead” without hard work.
These “New Fascists” have told us that all paths lead to God, which is in opposition to the faith of our Founding Fathers, and the faith that those of us in previous generations had been raised on and believe to this day.
In order to keep us powerless, they have told us that we should hate each other based on the color of skin and how successful we have become through hard work and well-made decisions.
They have masked the true nature of their programs with the help of useful idiots in the Corporate Media.
Through the use of propaganda and subjective reporting, they have made the minority in this country appear to be the majority, and deviant sexual behavior appear to be normal.
While, at the same time, they have labeled those who believe in Traditional Christian American faith and patriotism as “White Nationalists.”
However, what I have observed is that the majority of Americans still believe in those values even if they don’t voice them.
That is why these “New Fascists” are trying harder than ever to “radically change” our Constitutional Republic into a mob-ruled “Socialist Paradise. “
My friends, please remember that God is in control.
As long as we are willing as Americans to fight for what we believe in, there is still hope for America.
Why do you think that Biden is at 37% popularity in a recent Gallup Poll?
For what now seems like an eternity, those on the Left side (along with some of those who claim to be on the Right Side) of the Political Aisle have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.
They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”. Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.
And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, and for John to pretend that he is Sally, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman. and that He created them.
“Progressive Churches” proclaim the equality of all faiths when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
But, I digress…
So, when is all this Christianity in America going to “fade away” as predicted by “the Smartest People in the Room”?
As polls have shown…while some have forsworn their Christian Heritage, the majority of Americans still proclaim Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior and believe in God Almighty.
However, if you read some of the comments posted on Conservative Websites and Facebook Political Pages by self-appointed “pundits”, you would think that Christian Americans are the minority in this nation.
I can testify from personal experience, having caught flack for sticking to my Christian American Conservative Principles, since beginning my posts in April of 2010.
My posts, concerning American Christianity, seem to “touch a nerve” in both Liberals and Atheists, alike. (But, in at least some cases, I repeat myself.)
Their reaction has hardly been unexpected.
Of course, one of the Hot Button Issues, which those Liberals and Atheists who responded, over the years, immediately denied, was that our Founding Fathers were Christians and that our country was founded on a Judeo-Christian Belief System. Evidently, they had never read anything, except what their like-minded, non-believing soothsayers, allowed them to.
Or else, they would have read historical documents like President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, written on November 1, 1777, and found at wallbuilders.com:
“The committee appointed to prepare a recommendation to the several states, to set apart a day of public thanksgiving, brought in a report; which was taken into consideration, and agreed to as follows: Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of; and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common providence, but also smile upon us in the prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success: It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
And it is further recommended, that servile labor, and such recreation as, though at other times innocent, may be unbecoming the purpose of this appointment, be omitted on so solemn an occasion.”
Atheist Activists and young and/or misinformed Liberals and self-proclaimed “Libertarians” (but, in a lot of cases, I repeat myself), who reply to my posts, insist that Crosses and other Christian symbols have no place in the Public Square.
Relying on Far Left Ideologues or their own opinion as their “highest authority”, they continue their push to eliminate the practice of American Christianity and the Traditional American Morality and Ethics which go with it from Everyday American Life, attempting to regulate Christians’ role in American Society as remaining unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, on Sunday mornings, only.
Or, as Actor and Professional Wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would say, Obama and his minions want American Christians to
“Sit down, shut up, and know your role!”
Unfortunately for them, the First Amendment to the Constitution still holds. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Being filled with human beings, America’s churches have made a lot of mistakes,
However, they have also done a lot of good in the Name of the Lord.
Churches today have to walk a fine line.
The spiritual battle raging between the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer that Christians can muster.
Far Left Democrats seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.
Why have Far Left Democrats ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?
Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?
Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.
It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.
Why else would they be trying so hard to fight against the influence of Someone Whom they really don’t believe in?
I see them every single day on the television, on the Internet, on Facebook Political Pages, posting stupid meme (a picture with words on it) after stupid meme, attempting to make fun of The Great I Am and those of us who have given our lives to Him.
They are so hateful and filled with such bitterness that it is difficult to engage them in “conversation”.
Perhaps, somewhere in their back of their minds, all of these Modern Far Left Democrats realize that they are fighting a losing battle.
Christianity continues to exist in America despite their best efforts.
For, as the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia stated so eloquently, “God has been very good to us America was built upon a Solid Rock. To ignore our nation’s Faith-Based Founding and Heritage is to live in purposeful ignorance.”
As President Ronald Reagan said, “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
And, as Hebrews 13:8 tells us, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Regardless of the political machinations of Modern American Liberals, God will have the final word as to our country’s future.
This morning, as I lay in bed, The Lord had me thinking about Him. These thoughts were about what today, a day that Christians around the world celebrate as the day that Jesus Christ rose victorious from the grave, must have been like.
Pretend for a moment, that you are an average citizen living at the time of Christ…
[For the past three years, you have seen this charismatic young man speak about the love and mercy of God, and how His Grace and Forgiveness is freely given, IF…
And, there’s the catch…
According to this carpenter’s son from Nazareth, you have to confess your sins, and ask the Great I am, for forgiveness.
Whoa! Wait a minute. Who is this guy? A radical? Ask Yahweh for forgiveness?
And, what’s that he said? You will then have a personal relationship with His Father?
How can that be? This is the Great I am. This is the Deity of Vengeance who destroyed those escaped slaves from Egypt for throwing a party, while Moses was up on a mountain, and building and worshiping a Golden Calf.
And, remember what happened to King Nebuchadnezzar? Daniel interpreted a dream for him, explaining that his kingdom would be ruled over by Gentiles until God sent His King. Ol’ Nebby got mad, because he couldn’t rule over the Israelites and over the whole world unless God allowed him to do so. He forgot that, and became very proud. He tried to make the people think that he was very wonderful, and that they should worship him. He didn’t trust God as some of the kings of the Israelites did, but had the very foolish idea that he could be a wise and wonderful king without any help from God.
So, what do you suppose occurred?
Why, the King had another dream, and when he found out what it meant it was really terrible. In this dream God told him that he would lose his mind and would go out in the field and eat grass just like the cattle for seven years. And Nebuchadnezzar actually did this, too. Can you imagine a mighty king, as he thought himself to be, crawling around on the ground eating grass? The Bible tells us that his hair grew long and coarse and looked like bird feathers, and his fingernails became like the claws of animals.
Finally, though, Nebuchadnezzar’s reason returned to him, and when he found out what he had done he was very much ashamed of himself.
However, he learned by this experience that he was not as wise and powerful as he had thought. Learning this, he gave praise to God for allowing him to be the ruler.
This is the God that some carpenter’s son from Nazareth has been telling us that we can have a personal relationship with?
Finally, one of His disciples betrayed Him and gave Him up to the Romans, who crucified Him.
I noticed that while He was hanging there the guards and some of the townspeople there were mocking Jesus, telling Him that if He was the Son of God, to ”jump down off of that cross”. Meanwhile, some of the centurions were casting lots over His robe.
All except this one centurion, who was just watching Him, as if he was waiting for something to happen…]
And, then came the Glorious Morning… [Wow. It’s really been amazing around here since they crucified Jesus. Did you feel that earthquake? The veil of the temple was torn in half! And did you hear? A bunch of people that had died years ago, were seen walking around the city! But that’s not all. Don’t tell me you haven’t heard?
Listen to this: He has risen! He arose from the dead and was seen by several people. It’s true! I know it sounds unbelievable. I can scarcely take it in myself. Mary Magdalene and Mary, James and Salome’s mother, went to the tomb to perform the anointing of His body and it wasn’t there! On top of that, there was this young guy there, dressed in a white robe. They said he must have been 9 feet tall. He said, “You are seeking Jesus of Nazareth. Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here. See the place where you laid him.” So they went and told the disciples. But you know how Peter is. He just had to go run up there and see for himself.
Jesus even approached two of them on the road to Emmaus. They didn’t recognize him. He even broke bread with them that night. They realized who He was and He disappeared! They ran to tell the disciples and as they were telling them, Jesus appeared right in front of them! They were all starting to panic. Jesus said, “Peace to you.” But they couldn’t believe it was him, especially Thomas. So he had him touch him in the hole in his hand where they drove the nail and where the spear pierced his side.
Jesus ate with them and performed other signs and miracles in front of them and they understood scripture as never before. He also came to them at the Sea of Tiberius. Peter took the disciples fishing and they weren’t catching anything. Jesus told them from the bank to cast the net down on the right side. They did, and they could hardly bring it in the boat! When they got back to land, Jesus already had a fire going and some fish and bread ready to eat. He asked Peter three times if he loved Him, and each time He told him “Feed my sheep’. Hey, isn’t that the same number of times Peter Denied Him?
Anyway, He taught them many things before He left. They watched as He was taken straight up into heaven. Can you imagine?
The disciples are making plans now to go out and starting spreading the Good News about Jesus’ Resurrection. They are talking about going out in pairs. Man. Nothing is ever going to be the same again.]
The despair being felt by the average citizens of Rome, at the time, is not unlike the situation which we, as average Americans, find ourselves in today.
We, too, are still struggling in the darkness before the dawn.
Our American Culture has been crumbling before our very eyes, as sin, depravity, and personal irresponsibility have been lauded by “the smartest people in the room” as normal, and values to be embraced…a Golden Calf to be worshiped by those who have turned their backs of the Almighty, because He will not give them the worldly gratification they seek…and because they erroneously believe that they are smarter than God, and can interpret and ignore God’s Holy Word in order to ignore and to rewrite to make it mean whatever they want to, in order to assuage their own consciousness, in an attempt to stifle that “Still Small Voice” within them, Who is reminding them of their sin and the consequences of it.
For the past several years, our Sovereign Nation and the rest of the world have been fighting enemies foreign and domestic, even within our own government, along with a Chinese Coronavirus, a combination of challenges which have claimed thousands of deaths in our country and the loss of jobs for millions of Americans.
Today, as we watch an out-of-control Congress and Administration attempt to take away our American Freedom, we all need to remember the words of President Ronald Reagan:
We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
Fellow Americans….my message to you on this Resurrection Day 2023 is
DO NOT GIVE UP ON GOD. DO NOT GIVE UP ON THE FOUNDING FATHERS’ HOPE, WHICH BECAME AMERICA.
As the old country Preacher’s wife always told him when she took away his plate after supper,
Hold on to your fork, Hon. Dessert is on it’s way.
The final chapter of the amazing story of our Blessed Land has not been written yet. It is up to each and every one of us to write it, strengthened by the Grace of God.
Until He Comes,
“For God so loved the word, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John
“Colorado head coach Deion Sanders has yet to officially appear on the sidelines for the Buffaloes after taking the job in December, but he’s already at the center of controversy over his religion.
Sanders was known for expressing his strong belief in God when it came to his coaching style at Jackson State. When he left the Tigers for the Colorado gig, he was mocked for saying that God had sent him to become the coach of Jackson State but left the job anyway.
With kickoff to the 2023 Buffaloes season just months away, Sanders is now in the middle between two religious groups. One group wants Colorado to force him to stop preaching his religious beliefs to his players, while another one warned the university that telling him to do so could infringe on his rights.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation sent the University of Colorado a letter on Jan. 24 about Sanders’ references to Christianity and claimed they were contacted by residents who were concerned players were potentially being pressured to pray during their team meetings.
The letter also pointed to one prayer in question, which read “Lord, we thank You for this day, Father, for this opportunity as a group. Father, we thank You for the movement that God has put us in place to be in charge of. We thank You for each player here, each coach, each family. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”
The group called on the university to teach Sanders about “his constitutional duties under the Establishment Clause” and to “ensure that Sanders understands that he has been hired as a football coach and not a pastor.” The letter urged the school to provide the group that the coach “will not continue to proselytize to his players or subject them to coercive team prayers,” according to The Christian Post.
The school would respond to the letter the next week, saying Sanders was “very receptive to this training and came away from it with a better understanding of the University of Colorado’s policies and the requirements of the Establishment Clause,” according to the Deseret News. The school said if a player had a problem with prayers in the future, it would direct them to the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
Who is the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), and why should they be concerned about Collegiate Football Teams participating in prayer?
According to their website:
“The purposes of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Inc., as stated in its bylaws, are to promote the constitutional principle of separation of state and church, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.”
Down here in Dixie, we still pray at school functions…and that fact drives that idiotic bunch of atheists up in the Great White North, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, absolutely nuts. So much so, that they have made it their mission in life, to sue every school that dares have any sort of prayer at any event, on campus or off.
The FFRF has achieved a modicum of success in our court system. However, at least in the South, school organizations such as the Fellowship of Christian Students and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes are still flourishing.
I remember back in elementary school, every morning we began school by singing “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” and then, reciting The Pledge of Allegiance. Even remembering that ritual today, I find comfort in it.
In the South, at least in the Mississippi County in which I live, the school day still begins with the recitation of the Pledge, which is led by a group of students, standing around a microphone in the Principal’s Office.
Unfortunately, that is no longer the case in many schools around our blessed land. Nowadays, good old-fashioned American Patriotism is not considered Politically Correct by the Far Left Democrats who are in charge of our Education System.
And, the same Far Left Democrats have screaming hissy fits over any violation of the mythical “Separation of Church and State”, a phrase which does not appear in our Constitution, or any other legal and binding document for that matter.
So, what is the cause of this 180 degree turn from where we were, as a mostly cohesive society, based on love of God and Country, which I remember so fondly from my childhood, to where we are now as a country comprised, to a certain extent, of individuals, who believe in relative morality, situational ethics, and a malleable Constitution?
Learned individuals have been trying to discern exactly what has caused this Societal and Cultural Decline, and in the process, they have blamed it on everything from poor schools to poverty to malnutrition.
Being a simple man, (Hey, that would make a great title for a rock song. Oh, wait. It was. Never mind.) I believe that because Americans have wanted, for at least 3 generations now, to give their children everything materialistically possible, they have to a great extent, ignored their children’s spirituality.
God’s Word tells us that we, as parents, should
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)
The Obama Administration and the Biden Administration have tried to step in and fulfill the role of “parent,” making the situation that I’ve been describing even worse.
And now, Coach Deion Sanders is being reprimanded for sharing his faith with the young men in his charge, as Christian Americans have done since the beginning of our Sovereign Nation.
Just like the high school football coach who won his job back thanks to a ruling by the Supreme Court, Coach Sanders has the right to pray in front of his team or to walk out to the 50 yard line and kneel in prayer.
“A Washington teacher complained on Friday that many schools’ “guidelines and laws” haven’t helped them keep students’ information secret from “Christo-fascist” parents.
A tweet shows Auburn School District 408 teacher Karen Love responding to another that urged parents to check their school district’s policy regarding keeping info about their child’s secret from them.
“Parents-check your school districts’ policy regarding keeping info about YOUR child secret from you. There are some scary policies out there. Schools should not have a right to keep info about your child from you unless abuse by you is suspected. There I said it and mean it,” a tweet written by “The Principle’s Office” reads.
Love responded, “I cannot disagree with this more. So many students are not safe in this nation from their Christo-fascist parents. And our guidelines and laws haven’t caught up with this.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
Fellow Americans, do you understand what has been happening in the schools that our children and grandchildren attend 5 days a week?
They are being brainwashed to believe that Christianity is evil, Devil worship is okay, as is Marxism, that there are more than two genders, and that a man can get pregnant!!!
If you wonder why they don’t want to listen to you at home, it is not just because they’re (fill in the age), IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING PROGRAMMED BY A GODLESS TOTALITARIAN BIG GOVERNMENT LOVING BUNCH OF SOULESS GROOMERS!!!
For example, consider the demonic excuse for a “teacher” quoted in the article above.
She truly believes, like all Marxists, that it is the State’s duty to teach children that the State knows what is best for them.
She also knows that hiding the truth of her horrifying “lesson plans” from parents is the only way that she and her fellow travelers will succeed in their mission.
Former President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) let it slip several years ago.
Their mission is to “radically change” America into something that it was never meant to be: a totalitarian mob-ruled remake of the Soviet Union.
So, why is this groomer (yeah, I said it) calling Christian Americans “Christo-fascists”?
We stand in the way of Far Left Democrats like her and her fellow travelers completing their mission.
That is why they are absolutely freaking out about the Revival happening on College Campuses across this country.
Young Christian Americans are “putting on the whole armor of God,” experiencing and sharing His Wonderous Love with fellow Americans … and it is spreading like Wildfire.
Through God’s Grace and the Holy Spirit, we may be witnessing the answer to the prayers of the faithful.
Nick Hall is the visionary of the Together movement, author of Reset, and the founder of PULSE, a ministry at the center of the largest millennial-led prayer and outreach efforts in the world. Nick has shared the Gospel with nearly 4 million students. He is the president and CEO of The Table Coalition and sits on the board of the National Association of Evangelicals.
The following quote is an excerpt from an Opinion Piece he posted at FoxNews.com.
I received this text message from a friend who has heard me use the term “revival.” I don’t use the term lightly, but what God seems to be doing is unprecedented.
We saw over 2,000 students repent of sin and turn to Jesus last week through events at the University of Georgia, Minnesota, Texas Tech, Wisconsin, Iowa State, and North Dakota State.
I’ve been doing evangelism for 20 years. I was trained by and traveled with both Billy Graham and Luis Palau. These are the highest percentage of responses to the healing, redeeming message of Jesus that I’ve ever seen. Could this be a revival?
It’s easy to be skeptical. We live in an age of hype and celebrity faith leaders. Many will question and criticize, but it always takes faith to believe instead of doubt.
What if God is moving on these campuses and at Asbury University?
I got home to Minnesota exhausted last weekend but incredibly stirred to travel to Kentucky. I’m a husband and father of three and leaving my family again over my few off days is not ideal. My bride looked me in the eyes and said, “You have to go.”
In 1970, a revival broke out in the same place – Asbury University, in the Hughes Auditorium. It began from the chapel and students kept worshipping, praying, and repenting for 144 hours.
I first read about the Asbury 1970 revival when I was 18 years old and a freshman in college, I preached and prayed for it to happen again for 22 years!
Without a revival, we stay in our sin. It’s God’s method of revealing Himself, and it’s been a God-ordained vehicle used throughout the history of the Church.
“The revival is still happening! Four days and counting!” The text messages kept coming. I began my pilgrimage to Wilmore, Kentucky on Monday. Could this be real? What I found shocked me.
In an age of sensationalized encounters, what’s happening at the Hughes Auditorium is incredibly simple, humble, and ordinary.
There isn’t a single ‘known’ figure on the platform. It’s students leading the way alongside a few campus ministers. It’s raw worship, Bible reading and exhortation, and repentance.
Confession broke out numerous times, the crowd would listen and speak out, “The blood of Jesus forgives me.” The altars were full night and day, wet with tears, from young and old. It was multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and multi-generational.
The crowds kept flooding. I didn’t want to leave but felt a burning that we need this back home, every home!
Upwards of 5,000 people flooded Wilmore. There were traffic jams and hungry souls filling four venues and the front lawn.
I talked with Max, the gas station attendant. He grew up Sikh in Asia but said he is overwhelmed by God’s love hitting his community.
“Do you think I can go?” I told him that he needed to go.
I met a teenager named Michael, carrying his skateboard, telling me that while he isn’t a Christian, the meetings at Asbury are “cool” and he said, “I can feel the love of God.” He said he’s closer to trusting Jesus but is counting the cost.
I met others impacted from Hawaii, Boston, and California.
From across the nation, people are flocking to encounter Jesus. Earlier this week I received a report that up to 20 other college campuses have started meetings. New doors are opening!
The thing about the Asbury Revival is that it happened without a huge robotic lighting system and paid professional singers.
It didn’t happen in a Megachurch or a church where the cross and altar have been replaced by colored lights and a stage.
The Holy Spirit moved in a humble college chapel and the resulting Revival is spreading like wildfire across our Sovereign Nation.
And, why college “kids”?
For the past couple of decades, churches have been trying to figure out how to attract more young people to their services because, quite frankly, the older Americans who pay the bills and tend to be the backbone of the congregation, have been dying off.
However, in their zeal to attract a younger crowd, they have alienated older Christians by replacing familiar older hymns and corporate worship with professional “Worship Leaders” singing songs meant for Contemporary Christian Radio, not the vocal range of average Americans.
A lot of churches have become “Woke”, embracing popular culture instead of preaching and teaching God’s Word from the Older and New Testaments in the Holy Bible.
This has resulted in a generation hungry for the love of the Triune God, thirsting for the joy and unconditional love which only repentance of sins and the Amazing Grace of Salvation can bring.
Both young and older Americans are coming to these Revivals, “weary and heavy-laden” from their personal burrens, seeking the relief that accepting Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior can bring.
Now, I am certain that I will catch grief from the “Woke” Liberals who may read this post.
My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, died for me.
Writing about what is happening in His Name is the least that I can do.
