There is a war against the American way of truth, freedom and Judeo-Christian founding. The war is now being waged openly by “those who call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20). There is a severe warning there to those who do that. The attack on America’s Christian founding has been going on quietly from the beginning. It has now come to a head and is obvious for any who are not too blind to see it.
From the early days of our nation, there has been "a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way", to quote the motto of the Superman comic strip character that debuted in 1938. That superhuman hero was introduced during some dark days in America. The Mob was taking advantage of economic collapse in the nation. The start of World War II was looming only a year away, when Germany would invade Poland, threatening the freedom of the entire world.
It was time for Americans to muster up serious courage and step up to fight against evil. Superman was the symbolic call for the renewal of pride and determination to restore the defense of the moral virtues that our American culture was built upon.
If it was time for heroism and courage then, it is certainly critical right now! The Leftist liberals, or so-called “Progressives” are calling evil good and good evil. They “substitute darkness for light and light for darkness” and “bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).
Killing unwanted babies in the womb, even outside the womb, is referred to as women’s “healthcare”, or “self-care”. Around Christmas in 2019 abortion was referred to as “magical” by a Texas group. They gave “Abortion is Magical” holiday party candles to donors. There is no greater example of calling something that is dark, evil and bitter, “light, good and sweet”!
Since the first baby was born to the first parents every parent has quickly looked at the baby’s genitals to determine if they have a new baby girl or boy. That eagerly anticipated revelation is now available early in the pregnancy with ultrasound images. Today, for the first time in history, some declare that the obvious assessment is unscientific!
An article in the New York Times (October 22, 2018) was entitled, Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender. The first sentence in that attempt to call obvious truth, “false” (light being called dark) was this nonsense: “Defining gender as a condition determined strictly by a person’s genitals is based on a notion that doctors and scientists abandoned long ago as oversimplified and often medically meaningless.”
That is a clear attempt to convince those who still read that once respected icon that they have fallen way behind the transgender “science”. The reader is meant to hear in their now “enlightened” mind, Why, you mean you didn’t know that doctors and scientists stopped determining gender that way long ago? Some few are falling for that garbage!
Many vehement “deniers” are remaining silent about their disagreement to avoid the wrath of those who vehemently demand acceptance of their false, dark beliefs. Being silent about truth, resulting in the violent deaths of millions, is not the American way! If the evil ones can't get mothers to destroy their babies before or at the time of birth, they will encourage them to ruin their childrens' lives through sugical mutilation and devestating hormone confusion "therapy".
Women’s sporting events are now being “won” by males who are confused about their own gender. And you better not disagree, or you’re a bigot homophobe! What happened to women’s rights? Is that the American way?
On the first day of a college class that my youngest son took, the “professor” (of lies) told the students to state their name and proclaim the pronoun each wished to be referred to by. (He, him, she, her, it, or whatever they desired.) “Substitute darkness for light and light for darkness.”
These same backwards thinkers defend the violence of terrorists by saying we simply must understand the frustrations that the American way has caused them. They demand that illegal aliens be allowed to come in hordes to get handouts from the fruit of American productivity. While demeaning the American way, they demand that illegal aliens be given the right to come here and steal the abundant fruits of our productive, freedom way of life.
They blame America first for other nations’ problems. But American history is the example that shows how to correct those problems. The American way is the exception to the history of dictatorial rulers who keep people from God-given human rights and freedom.
Sanctuary cities defend violent offenders who are here illegally. They shield them from immigration enforcement. They encourage tent cities and homelessness, ruining large areas of their own cities. Dependence on government ruins the lives of those who are caught up in the poverty created by too many government handouts, eroding freedom and the American way.
The same dark, bitter, evil people accused President Trump of colluding with Russia and Ukraine. Hillary Clinton (Fake Russia "Dossier") and Joe Biden were the ones who, in fact, did that!
Our electoral process is a critical part of the American way according to the U.S. Constitution. When that begins to be thrown aside by one entire party, a dictatorship is the goal of that attempted coup. Ironically, they accused Trump of being a dictator.
If a coup like that cannot be stopped with the Constitution and the rule of law, the only thing left to those who will defend our Constitutional democratic republic is armed resistance. We must now work to reinstate the rule of law and the Constitution in order to avoid violent civil resistance to an out of control government. The Constitution is powerful only if the rule of law is in place. We must restore the American way.
It is imperative that we realize that this is a spiritual battle, requiring spiritual armor and weapons. The devil and his demons want truth, justice and the American way to be removed from this earth. They want to replace it with chaos and loss of freedom (darkness and bitterness). If Christians "stay out of politics", the enemy wins and the future freedom of our children is in danger!
Those who try to overthrow countries start by creating chaos. The chaos attempt is centered in our civil governments. The gospel message has been freely preached to the world powerfully from America. If the American way is ended, freedom to do so will be lost.
The Apostle Paul was imprisoned (by the civil government) for preaching the Truth and light through Jesus when he encouraged the Ephesians to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” He called for Christians to put on the whole armor of God, so that we would “be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil”. He explained, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Hebrews 6:10-20)
He then described that spiritual armor: Truth, righteousness, the gospel, faith, salvation, and the Word of God. The last one, the Word of God, he described as an offensive weapon, “the sword of the Spirit”. God’s word, spoken boldly with prayer, is expressed truth and overpowers the lies of the evil ones.
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Reich Minister of Propaganda for Nazi Germany said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, and you will come to believe it yourself. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
If we do not fight using that spiritual sword, the spoken Word of God, the enemy of truth wins by default! Light becomes darkness, sweetness turns bitter and goodness becomes evil. It only “appears” that they are winning now, but the potential loss of freedom is starting to frighten huge numbers of people and we are taking action. Remember, “The Truth will make you free.” (John 8:32)
Many are starting to fight back with truth and the tools this nation was blessed with: the Constitution and the rule of law! That is why and how Christians should be involved in politics. Satan certainly is! God is, too. But He works through people, all of whom are imperfect. Trump was simply an open door given to the Church to take up our responsibility again.
God protects us from the enemy when we work with Him to protect ourselves. Statesman Edmund Burke once said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." When good men do not do the right thing to resist evil, they are no longer good (James 4:7 and 17). When someone disagrees with evil, but says and does nothing, he agrees with the evil by default.
Many Christians have taken the stance of not speaking up against evil and the loss of biblical moral values. Many, led by passivist leaders, have become “politically correct” in order to avoid confrontation. Currently, there is an atmosphere in this country where evil is labeled as good and true morality as evil. Some churches even avoid preaching about sin and immorality to avoid causing offense.
On October 30, 2008, candidate Barak Obama’s plan of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” slipped out. Starting before the election of President Trump, the rule of law was being thrown out like last week’s trash. The Democrats were afraid to have Trump “destroy” everything they had subtly done through the decades to quietly dismantle the founding of this nation.
But Donald Trump didn’t play along with the elitists’ unspoken rules of gracious statesmanship. He was unapologetically brash, even downright rude to those who were trying to destroy him. He said and did things they did not know how to deal with. The construction mogul from Queens fought dirty in order to protect the founding core of the nation he loved. He fought back ruthlessly and without reservation or presidential etiquette.
By 2019, their absolute fear of Trump being reelected and his unabashed assessment of their actions, caused their motives to be brought out into the light of day for all to see. An all-out open assault began against the rule of law and “the American way”. For the first time, a “silent coup” had been put in play to unConstitutionally remove a duly elected president from office, against the will of the voters.
The elitists (including some Republicans) were working together in their smug attitude that they knew better than the citizens they were supposed to be representing. Freedom and the American way was on the chopping block and Donald Trump had seen it long before he ran for office. It was worse than he had imagined when he promised to correct it, but he began to pull back the curtains to shine the light on those working against the American way.
Since the time that the law was written giving churches tax exemption status (1894), most have been careful to soften their words. Speaking out forthrightly, especially against politicians, can cause the loss of that exempt status. It's time for churches to say, “So, what!” Subsequent generations of Americans have lost their way because of that.
Paul instructed the Church in Rome (Romans 13:1) to be in subjection to the governing authorities. Clearly, there are "governing authorities" that weren't "established by God" and are excluded. Hitler was not established by God! Nor was any other tyrant who committed mass murder of his own citizens.
Peter and the apostles were imprisoned for preaching the gospel. They were heavily involved in the politics of the local government. After they were miraculously released from prison they were openly teaching in the synagogue. The High Priest told Peter and the apostles, “We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name, and yet, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.”
They simply responded without fear, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you had put to death by hanging Him on a cross. He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.” (Acts 5:27-31)
In Acts 17:6 Paul and the early disciples were accused of turning “the world upside down”. They were teaching the “upside down” fact that the long-awaited Messiah was God who became part of His creation. He came as a sinless man (Jesus) who could and did pay the penalty on a cross for humanity’s sins.
That was not politically correct to the ruling Pharisees of the Jews. The salvation of mankind through Jesus did not sit well with the dark political state of religious leaders. But His disciples spoke the truth boldly! They were threatened with imprisonment and even death if they spoke that Truth about ultimate freedom. Many received that punishment! They weren’t concerned about tax exemption!
Imagine two rooms next to each other with the door closed between them. One is dark and the other brightly lit. If you open that door, does the darkness spill into the well-lit room?
It’s time for us as Americans to swing the door open wide and drive out the darkness with the brightness of truth. Truth is the light that reveals what the darkness is hiding. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the bright daylight that provides complete freedom. The United States of America was founded on that truth. That founding must be defended, and the gospel must be preached.
Otherwise, the enemy will “call evil good, and good evil”, will “substitute darkness for light and light for darkness”, “bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter”! Freedom will be lost, if we do not take up the whole armor of God to fight against “the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
The battle moves forward “with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,” to boldly “make known the mystery of the gospel”.
On July 7, 1775 John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, "...a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever." Freedom in Christ is never lost, but I also prefer that the God-given blessing of the "Constitution of Government" of these United States remain one of freedom. How about you? If so, then we must fight with the sword of the Word of God to defend Truth, justice and the American way!
I would gladly stand next to you to defend her still today, because in the immortal words of Lee Greenwood…
I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA!
