Are Faith, Family and Liberty in Jeopardy in America?
Nena Arias | August 1, 2013
When a nation moves away from God’s original design, something that has happened since the fall of Adam and Eve, there are severe consequences. People must fight vigorously to preserve their beliefs in the foundations of their culture, which is a never-ending battle for every generation and must make it a priority to transmit these basic unmovable truths to their children and their children’s children for all generations. This is especially true for the nation we now know as the United States of America. It’s become evident the culture has moved away from the original purpose stated in the Mayflower Compact, of 1620, which is:
In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc.
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith …solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience…
One of the very palpable moves away from this original purpose to advance the Christian Faith is the pulling away from biblical truth that happened after the First Great Awakening of the 1730’s and 1740’s and especially after the Second Great Awakening of the 1830’s and 1840’s. The significant introduction of liberal/progressivism humanism and the Darwinian theory of evolution in the latter part of the 19th Century into the institutions of higher learning the shift became very obvious.
The conspiracy that was birthed in the 1920’s under the guise of “tolerance” and “freedom” has consistently undermined the values and beliefs that form the foundation of American culture and government.
Aggressive multiple organizations such as the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union, a name that is very deceiving by the way) whose roots can be traced to atheism and communism and the Freedom From Religion Foundation who is a small but active and vocal minority whose destructive efforts against the belief in God in America have been undermining the original design of our country. Under these attacks, protecting faith and preserving liberty has become a very ferocious battle in the public square. W. Cleon Skousen said, “Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.” It is obvious that the inspiration of God to create the United States, a land of freedom to exercise faith in the God of the Bible and to make Him known to the world, was not only so future generations could squander that precious freedom.
The godless organizations have been relentless in their attacks, and are nearly unopposed in their aggressive ideology against the Almighty. One of their main footholds has been to pervert the First Amendment, originally written to preserve faith freedom, but is now a twisted interpretation of “freedom from religion” making their goal to remove God from our country’s public square obvious. This is dangerous being that our liberties depend upon a citizenry who believes in the God of the Bible.
Destroying Christian values is a precondition to establishing the political goals of the godless, which include gaining control of productivity, private property and the redistribution of wealth. I repeat, their war is against the God of the Bible whose principles gave this country its greatness. If Americans allow their founding values and documents to be subverted from their original meaning, our rights to life, family, faith and liberty will be defined and enforced by the God-haters.
The hour is late, and the question is whether we can restore God’s place at the center of our nation. It is only with an army of warriors that will fight in every sphere of our society that this will be accomplished. We must be diligent to teach future generations of Americans in the true morality of the Bible. Our true identity and rights are derived from our Creator and not from any other source.
