“Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it! If you do not, I shall repent it in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it!” –John Adams
Illegal migration has become a very real problem in many parts of the world especially here in the United States. With so many wanting to come to the U.S. via Mexico it has not only impacted the U.S. but has also greatly impacted Mexico and its people are speaking out and expressing their discontent.
At the rate of 1.02 million abortions in the United States annually and 61.5 million and counting since 1973 since the infamous Roe v. Wade ruling, is it any wonder that abortion is producing American cities with few children.
Just like love is the supreme experience of all that is positive, and liberating, fear and anxiety are at the top of the list of all that is negative and enslaving. Love frees us—fear paralyzes us and renders us ineffective. The basis of all that God does for us is his perfect, abundant, rich and pure love. God is love and perfect love casts out all fear. I John 4:18 says. “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”
The Ten Commandments are the pillars established by God for us to live by. They are not suggestions. They must be strictly adhered to or else there will be consequences that follow. In the case of the Third Commandment, “you shall not the take the name of the Lord your God in vain” is of equal value as all the other Commandments. Yet anymore, it has become fashionable to use profanity using the Lord’s name in vain in public, in the media, in films and people are not being held accountable for this offensive language that assaults the spirit of all who hear it. In no way is it a benign practice that does not bring serious consequences.
Life News reports that a resistance is being carried out by OB-GYN doctors and colleagues of who say they will not be bullied into performing abortions after Ireland’s newest abortion law was passed that overruns the beliefs and convictions of medical professionals as well as the citizenry. I say bravo to those who are pushing back on legalizing on killing the unborn! This type of resistance is something that is also needed here in the United States of America so we can put an end to the slaughter of millions of unborn children all across our nation. I want to share excerpts from this article with you in hopes that you will be encouraged to fight against abortion wherever you are.
When children have been given everything but have not been taught the value of things or been taught how to earn them, it is common behavior for them to be unappreciative of what they do have and not think twice of demanding even more. Such is the behavior of some millennials. Anyone born between 1981 and 1996—ages 23 to 38 in 2019—is considered a Millennial.
Independence Day is celebrated on July 4 and is often known as "the Fourth of July." It is the anniversary of the publication of the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain in 1776. Fifty-six brave gentlemen who believed in the founding of this new nation signed this historic document and declared themselves and the 13 colonies free from the oppressive English crown.
We have always been told that the aim for every child should be to get a good education and make every effort to get a college degree. All who do and have accomplished it have been made to believe that they have arrived at the pinnacle of life and that from then on all will be smooth sailing for them. A long time ago, that accomplishment had some truth to it. But it has been a long time that things have been changing here in America since education has been sold to the highest bidder.
The believers in Christ who are committed to him are feeling the impact of the battles that are raging against God’s truth in America and our spirit is greatly alerted. The battle for truth is in full force. We are literally seeing coming to pass what the prophet Isaiah mentions in the scripture above. Evil is not only being called good, but it is being forced upon us whether we like it or not. What we knew as darkness is now what many are calling light or the new light. This is causing many to grow frustrated in the fight to move our beloved country back to God and his principles. But we must not be weary in well-doing for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up (Galatians 6:9).
