OH WHAT TIMES WE LIVE IN
By Ron Edwards
August 7, 2015
Throughout the annals of history, these are most certainly times that not only try men’s souls but are also rendering everything that is good to the back of the bus. It is bad enough that people do wrong. Human beings have been committing evil deeds ever since Eve was duped by satan and then convinced Adam (who knew better) to partake in an activity they should not have. Thus the ongoing war between good and evil was on and the rest is history.
When Arab Islamic muslims first enslaved Africans hundreds of years before the first European explorers began to purchase African slaves from the muslims, there was an equal and opposite effort that eventually arose. The brutality of slavery was eventually seen by millions of British and United States citizens as an evil that had to be extinguished.
When the church and the king of England both became obsessed with power over the people, some British subjects said enough is enough and sought to find land where they could worship the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob in peace and tranquility. Out of their disdain for the ongoing abuses in the land of the Union Jack was born the Christian based belief in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
There are many including yours truly, who believes that the United States was meant to be the supreme opposite of what has been an ongoing system of survival of the fittest enduring the brutal boot heel of tyrannical governments. America once stood out, because she was refreshingly different. Her numerous foundational documents ranging from The Articles of Confederation to the Bill of rights paved an inspired path toward greatness. That path benefited both individuals who sought to engage in the bountiful opportunities availing themselves and the government that built into it’s foundational doctrines the recognition of the God given unalienable rights that come from him.
In more recent times, the late great President Ronald Reagan represented a stunning and invigorating contrast to the malaise of his inept predecessor, President Jimmy Carter. Reagan refused to appease our republic’s adversaries. He also fought to roll back the economy stifling regulations that had beaten our economy into submission.
As “We the People” prepare to choose the next leader of the free world, let us take into consideration the importance of picking someone who represents being different. In other words, America can no longer thrive as a great nation with leadership that is hell bent on dragging her down a path that not only inhibits economic prosperity, but also places her in mortal danger. Let us not forget there are many who would like nothing more than to rid the world of the one nation that has been an impediment to global despots who believe that forcing people to live as they say to exist or suffer the consequences.
Millions of Christians, black Africans and many others have been murdered by muslim groups like isis for the sport of it, primarily because of the accommodating (or worse) approach of the current United States administration. One of the things that New Zealand author and orator Trevor Loudon has been doing for quite some time is crisscrossing the United States for a number of years reminding Americans of our nations place of greatness and how much the world (including his nation) of New Zealand depends on this beacon of light republic. We are at an absolute crossroads.
The time has arrived for us to return America to our God ordained position of greatness and beacon of hope to the world. Or we can slink away into oblivion on our nation’s current slide toward second tier status, leaving the world including our allies to try and do their best to overcome challenges posed by dedicated muslims and traditional tyrannical enemies like China and Russia. While these are certainly the times that try men’s souls that is no reason why we as Americans have to give in or give up, because of the horrific challenges. I challenge everyone who cares about America to join in the fight for the future generations of this republic. If we don’t act now, it will soon be too late. Do you want to have to tell your children and grandchildren that our nation ended up on the ash heap of history because you didn’t want to make waves or stand for the proven principles that made our nation the envy of the world?
Yes these are trying times, but with God’s leadership and help they can become the best of times. Dear reader, either you shall choose life or we shall choose death. America’s future is in the balance.
