REBUILDING THE WALLS
There is a great deal of talk these days about tearing down the walls that divide the Church. Unless we are willing to build bridges across racial and denominational walls, the Church in America will continue to appear powerless to stem the tide of debauchery sweeping across this land. If we love our country, our children, and our Lord, we must lay down our swords against each other and focus on a unified effort to restore Biblical values to this great experiment in self-government.
Just as important as tearing down walls is the need to rebuild some that we have allowed to crumble. Isaiah 58:12 �And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.�
A friend of mine who works in the construction business once told me that reconstruction is harder than new-construction because of the tearing-down process that has to take place before the old foundation upon which you have to re-build can be exposed. The average American citizen no longer has any idea about the old foundations of this country. Most Christians are so heavenly minded, that they are no longer any earthly good. We have become savorless salt, filling our shakers with �seasoning� from the world.
Hosea 4:6 �My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.�
Over the past forty years the American public has silently and steadily lost touch with the past. In this Age of Information, we are embarrassingly ignorant of our roots. As a wise man once said, �those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.� As America spins in circles am I the only one who feels dizzy? Our children will be the one�s to pay the price.
Since I have been writing and absorbing the regular feedback from those who read my commentaries, I have been becoming more and more aware of the dearth of understanding amongst Christians as to what is really happening to our nation. The post-WWII assault on Truth, our Constitution, and our Faith, especially in our public education system, has left the foundations of America cracked and crumbling. Too long content with sticking my thumb in the dike every time a tyrannical court makes an abdominal ruling, I have come to the realization that America has far more ignorance than I have thumbs. I have decided to make better use of my hands by grabbing a hammer, some nails, and begin to rebuild the wall.
For over 6 years I have been visiting churches, men's groups, youth groups, and schools, trying my best to make the argument that Christians must engage the culture. It is only during the last few months that I have come to the conclusion that men and women will not stand and fight simply because of "a lack of knowledge.� Part of the unwillingness to speak up comes from a woeful ignorance of the past. We don�t know enough to defend our position.
Over the past couple of years I have dedicated myself to a study of the American history that I deemed irrelevant during my high school daze. When I was sued by the ACLU for praying I knew in my heart that I had a right to pray with our team, but I had no legal basis for my belief. How could praying be against the law? Didn�t the First Amendment, the one bit of the Constitution I remembered, guarantee me freedom of religion?
I dove headlong into history and was amazed at what I found.
At a recent presentation I was making in Illinois, I made the comment that one of my attorney friends had told me that he had never read the Constitution. He explained that all he'd studied in law school were court decisions�what judges had said about the Constitution. In all of his law school classes, not one was a study of the Constitution and the original intent of the Founders.
After my presentation was over that morning, both a local practicing attorney (who was a former prosecutor), as well as a currently-seated judge who was running for re-election, confirmed that they too had NEVER READ THE CONSTITUTION! Is it any wonder our legal system is a mess? Our law schools teach lawyers to study the unconstitutional opinions of other misinformed judges! Instead of stare decisis that is Scary Decisis!
No matter how hard I tried to convince Christians that we had been duped by the courts, most had become convinced that the �separation of church and state� was in the Constitution--and most assumed it was written in the Bill of Rights. I have been working diligently to spread the truth every time I had the opportunity to speak. I have recently come to the realization that I don�t have the time, nor the invitation, to speak in every church in America. But I am driven to get the word out.
I have created a Powerpoint presentation that I use when I teach. Taped in a church, the one hour sessions are powerful and truthful and open the eyes of people every where I carry the message. My high-energy presentation, supported by documentation, is equipping with the facts those who are willing to learn about the coup that has taken place in America. We must re-educate ourselves or we will never be able to save the Republic. I am not an attorney, but I can read! What part of Congress shall make no law don�t you understand? Do we need a misinformed attorney or judge to explain those five words to us?
I am making these presentations available online to those who would like to help spread the Truth. I have done all of the work, gathered the information together, and presented it in a way that is sure to inspire you. Each packet includes a one-hour CD, and a small 10-page manual that provides follow-along documentation for easy self-study. It is nothing fancy, just plain talk, laced with Scripture, but the Truth will set you free!
Three different teachings are currently available and more will follow. The studies include:
Exposing the Lie: Separation of Church and State
This CD and documentation will open your eyes to how far America has fallen from the intentions of the Framers of this nation. This lesson covers The Mayflower Compact, Articles of Confederation, Northwest Ordinance, preambles of the 50 States, an overview of the Declaration of Independence, a brief overview of the Constitution, the Danbury Baptists' letter to Jefferson, Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists, the wall Hugo Black built, an explanation of the First Amendment, quotes from the Founding Fathers, and the U.S. Supreme Court decision Holy Trinity vs U.S.
Secular Humanism vs. Christianity: The Battle of the Worldviews
We have been told that our schools are supposed to be "religion free" zones. This lesson exposes the indoctrination of America's school children in the religion of Secular Humanism. Guaranteed to change the way you see government schools. Learn about what determines a Biblical worldview, does your pastor have a Biblical worldview, what is Secular Humanism, quotes from famous Humanists, and evolution is their tool. Moral Relativism, situational ethics, when our courts declared that Humanism is a religion, John Dewey's influence, how the religion of Secular Humanism is being taught in our schools, the 15 planks of the Humanist Manifesto, and a Questions and Answers session.
Judicial Tyranny: How the Courts are Controlling America
We hear a lot these days about tyranny, but few understand the tyranny of the courts. None of the major cultural issues of our day have been decided by a vote of the People, but rather by the edict of judges. Judges� decisions are not laws....they are opinions. Only the legislative branch can make law. The power of the People has been taken away. Topics covered include What is Tyranny, America is a republic not a democracy, what is an oligarchy, what our Founders said about democracy, God's four levels of government, Biblical basis for our three branches of government, powers of each branch, separation of powers, how the courts have usurped power, bogus "Right to Privacy," what is a Penumbra, Krytocracy, how the 13, 14, 15 Amendments voided State�s Rights, and seven Supreme Court decisions that changed America.
I am convinced that these powerful teachings will make a difference with you and your friends. They can be used in Bible studies, Sunday School, as a lesson for home educators, and would be great to use to open the eyes of your pastor!
Normally we will ask a donation of $12 for each class, but as an introductory offer we would like to make all three available for a donation of $25, plus shipping and handling.
But here is the great thing�.you can make as many copies as you like�give them to all of your friends�.no copyright restrictions. I�m not interested in building a ministry. I�m trying to help build the kingdom!
Consider this. Imagine if you held a Bible study with 10 people in your home. These one-hour classes will be valuable in helping develop a Biblical worldview. Now imagine if the host of the Bible study gave a copy of the teaching to all 10 people, and each of them shared it with ten. We could exponentially impact this nation.
Order yours today. Only the Truth can save America. Together we can begin to rebuild the walls.
people perish for a lack of knowledge��it is time we rescued the
out my new CD�Why
Should God Bless America?�it's better than listening to O'Rush,
O'Hannity, or O'Reilly. Pass some salt to your friends!
