DOES GOD HAVE TO GO?
September 30, 2014
The following testimony was sent to many e-mails in April 2013. It made a short stop at my computer but unfortunately, the original source is not known:
Today I went to visit the New World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. I got an unexpected history lesson. Because I’m a baby boomer, I was one of the youngest in the crowd. Most were the age of my parents, veterans of ‘the greatest war,’ with their families. It was a beautiful day, and people were smiling and happy to be there. Hundred of us milled around the memorial, reading the inspiring words of Eisenhower and Truman that are engraved there.
On the Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us gathered to read the words President Roosevelt used to announce the attack on Pearl Harbor:
‘Yesterday, December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked.’
One elderly woman read the words aloud:
‘With confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph.’
But as she read, she was suddenly turning angry. ‘Wait a minute,’ she said, ‘they left out the end of the quote. They left out the most important part. Roosevelt ended the message with ‘so help us God.’
Her husband said, ‘You are probably right. We’re not supposed to say things like that now.’ ‘I know I’m right,’ she insisted. ‘I remember the speech.’ The two looked dismayed, shook their heads sadly and walked away.
Listening to their conversation, I thought to myself, ‘Well, it has been over 50 years, she’s probably forgotten. But she had not forgotten. SHE WAS RIGHT because I went home and pulled out the book my book club is reading – ‘Flags of our Fathers’ by James Bradley. It’s all about the battle at Iwo Jima… I hadn’t gotten too far in the book. It’s tough to read because it’s a graphic description of the WWII battles in the Pacific. But right there it was on page 58. Roosevelt’s speech to the nation ends in ‘so help us God.’
The people who edited out that part of the speech when they engraved it on the memorial could have fooled me. I was born after the war! But they couldn’t fool the people who were there. Roosevelt’s words are engraved on their hearts.
I ask: ‘Who gave them the right to change the words of history?’
It closes by saying, “People today are trying to change the history
of America by leaving God out of it, but the truth is, God has been
a part of this nation, since the beginning. He still wants to be…and
He always will be!”
NATURAL MAN REBELS AGAINST THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD
This brings me to the George Orwell quote at the top of the e-mail. “When you re-write history you destroy the Truth and Fabric of society! Orwell’s genius centered on seeing how language, not physical force would be used to manipulate minds. Enter the “Political Correctness” from stage left.
Romans 9:14 said the natural man rebels against the sovereignty of God. If anything is left to God, to make the choice, man immediately concludes that there is injustice and there oughta be a law. Why is that? REBELLION makes them ripe for judgment. In I Samuel 20:1 the people wanted Saul to be their King. God granted their request but He sent leanness to their souls. “If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, then we’re going to have some problems there,” said President Obama.
We are living in times where the “powers that be” have determined that God made a mistake with His creation of man and woman so they gradually try to remove all distinctions between the sexes to create a gender-blender society. Step #1- gender-free restrooms. As early as 1991, in California, if lines at the bathroom were longer than three, a woman could go to the men’s bathroom and vica versa. Medicare is now covering sex-reassignment surgery for seniors. In 2012, a United Methodist pastor asked his congregation to consider the truth of gender identity and sexual orientation as a God given right and to be celebrated and embraced.
The actress in the Harry Potter movie, Emma Watson, 24, delivered an astonishing and inspiring speech on equality, gender roles and feminism at the U.N. headquarters in New York city on September 21, 2014. She would be a President Obama appointment. A Rockefeller member told film maker Aaron Russo the women’s movement was not about equal opportunity but to get both parents out of the home and into the workforce, where they would pay taxes and then Rockefeller and New World Order friends can decide how the children would be raised and educated. That’s how they control society. Russo’s movie, AMERICA, FROM FREEDOM TO FASCISM recounts how our government is abandoning the constitutional framework of liberty. Read about the Rockefeller grant to Oregon State University in December 1971.
OBAMAS DON’T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
Laura Ingraham, author of Obama’s Diaries, claims she found a file on the hood of her car with scandalous White House diaries. For instance, she said on January 18, 2009, with the inauguration the next day, Barack noted in his diary they’d better find a church. “Why not give the congregants a little excitement? They’ll enjoy seeing us.” On Easter Sunday, they attended St. John’s Episcopal Church which Michelle described as “stiff and lily white” and how the pastor droned about Jesus’s rising and the power of the resurrection. They both missed the teaching of their former “social justice” minister from Trinity, Rev. Jeremiah Wright who preached on damning America.
According to the New York Times, “the Obama’s first Christmas in the White House in 2009, the social secretary, Desiree Rogers said the Obamas were ‘planning a non-religious Christmas’ in an effort to ‘Obama-tize’ the White House. And the traditional Bethlehem stable scene would not be on display in the East Room.” The Obamas don’t even give their girls Christmas presents. However, regarding the lack of a nativity scene, one source told me they simply couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin anywhere in the D.C. area but would have no trouble finding enough asses to fill the stable so Obamas and their entourage flew to Hawaii for Christmas.
In an October 2006 TIME MAGAZINE, Obama said he was not raised in a religious household but his mother did have the Bible and the Koran on the shelf and she touted herself as an atheist like Barack Obama, Sr. who was a confirmed atheist by the time he met Barry’s mother. However, an atheist universe loses the blessings of God.
I’m the first to admit Christmas has become too commercialized. My grandparents were German emigrants who were part of that fascinating experience between 1881 – 1924 who came legally through Ellis Island but what happens in so many of these arrivals, while they did assimilate, they bring with them traditions. www.fossilizedcustoms.com . And while they were self-reliant and made a significant contribution to the culture of America, they introduced the Christmas tree.
ENVIONMENTAL WACHOS ARE HYPOCRITS AND LIARS
The radical environmentalists worship the creation but not the creator. www.newswithviews.com/Ewart/ron163.htm The trees, the hills, birds, earth, as well, are all part of the great force which makes up the universe, and all are god. Witches talk to trees. The kinky global elite from around the world who attend the Bohemian Grove gathering the last two weeks in July talk to the owl. The spotted owl was put on the Endangered list in Oregon’s forest industry in the 80s causing more than 16,000 jobs lost and schools and counties losing more than $45 million yearly in revenue. Than in 2012 President Obama awarded the spotted owl a total of 9.6 million acres more in Washington, Oregon and California. The drug cartels no longer found timber workers in the forests, so like the homeless squatters taking over vacant homes in Portland, Oregon, they moved into the forests and planted marijuana instead of trees and the sheriffs felt helpless. Another environmental group, Nature Conservancy, was able to purchase land cheap where the Attwater prairie chicken in Texas was put on the Endangered list and now it is earning money from oil drilling on this “conservation” land- the height of hypocrisy.
DETHRONE GOD AND DESTROY CAPITALISM
The weekend of September 20, 21 and 22, saw marchers in New York against capitalism. When Karl Marx was asked what his object was in life he said, “To dethrone God and destroy capitalism!” They want us living squeezed together in hi-rise apartments in the big cities like cattle (which they see us as) and riding mass transit or riding bicycles. They want us out of our gas guzzling cars, which means to us freedom and liberty. One journalist asked Robert Kennedy, another hypocritical environmental wacko from the Kennedy dynasty, if he was going to give up his cell phone, his SUV and his jet and he replied “No, are you?” but what they did leave was tons of garbage for someone to clean up. I remember attending several Christian events where thousands were in attendance and when they left the building, all litter was picked up and went with them. The place was clean. The whole rally in New York was another orchestrated attempt to promulgate fear- a major function of propaganda to unhinge us from our normative moorings of our God, our Christian Religion, our culture, our families, etc.
called themselves www.DemocracyNow.org
and claimed to be the largest climate march in history with 156 countries
involved and more than 2640 groups from AIDs activists to the Zero population
advocates. The organizer’s website is www.350.org
And if you’ve got the time, listen to a couple hours of interviews
One of the people interviewed was a lady who was elected in November 2013 as the first socialist Seattle City Council member wearing a “Planet Over Profit” shirt. Right after she was elected she moved to mandate a $15/hour minimum wage in Seattle. And, of course, the social media makes the climate event a recruiting tool and made certain they reported the $15 hour mandate for Seattle. There were anti-fracking protesters in attendance with their signs despite the fact that gasoline prices are down from 2013 levels thanks to Texas, North Dakota and Canada and new extracting techniques such as fracking have added so much to oil supplies that consumers saved as much as $700 million per week compared to a similar period in 2013.
HOARDING A MENTAL DISORDER
Dr. Phil had a cute little old lady on his show one day who was a hoarder. As he opened up one sack, he’d ask her why she needed this or that and she remembered exactly why she saved it. When he picked out of the sack a wheel about 4” long and asked her about it, she smiled and said, “You never know when you might need a wheel.” The most current Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) includes 312 approved diagnoses including HOARDING, caffeine withdrawal and internet gaming disorders . In the 1942 book AMERICA UNLIMITED by Eric Johnston, elected president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1942, he said history is replete with proofs that concentrated power is not only a corrupting but a self-perpetuating force. Those who acquire it tend to HOARD it and to expand it at every opportunity, just as other people HOARD and increase their physical possessions.
Perhaps the best example of this self-perpetuating force is the promoters of climate alarmism which is full speed ahead using a huge network of highly motivated lobbyists and NGO’s on their side from government agencies, universities, scientific institutions and businesses that are riding the billion-dollar-a-day, taxpayer funded global-warming gravy train. President Obama cannot get his job-destroying scheme through Congress, so he resorts to dictatorial Executive Orders and administration rulings to FORCE his unconstitutional “environmental” program on the unwilling. His primary instrument for doing so is the overzealous Environmental Protection Agency created by GOP Presidential Nixon, and every unelected administrator appointed by the president in these unconstitutional agencies are the WHEELS that keep a dictator in power while conveniently ridding the agencies of whistleblowers.
ATHEISTS ARE WELCOME BUT NO CHRISTIANS
The Obama administration is also the first to invite atheists in for a sit-down. On February 26, 2010, several high-ranking Obama officials attended a special meeting at the White House with a group of some of the most rabid antireligious bigots in America. The Secular Coalition for America, including groups like American Atheists and the Council for Secular Humanism, attended the meeting. According to ABC News these “non-theists” came to express their opinions on “faith healing on children, which the coalition describes as form of ‘child abuse’; the “pervasive’ religious atmosphere in the US military; and faith-based initiatives.”
Clearly, the most dogmatic thinkers in America – activist atheists- had found a friend in Barack Obama. Two of the 45 goals of the communist Takeover of America are #27: Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch” and #41: Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
We have become one nation against God, rather than one nation under God. Our beautiful national anthem, the Starr Spangled banner, mirrors the deeply religious and patriotic nature of its composer, Francis Scott key who died in 1843, But have you ever considered the last lines of the anthem ends with a question?
