NATIONAL GREATNESS BEGINS WITH THE FEAR OF THE LORD
By Ron Edwards
December 18, 2015
If you have ever taken the time to ponder upon the state of education in America, perhaps you may consider the process of eliminating the influence of the Christian Bible. The book of Proverbs reminds us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. (1:7) Despite the often repeated lie of bigoted progressives and some libertarians, the Founding Fathers realized the importance of providing and maintaining the needed influence of biblical absolutes upon the future direction of the republic.
In 1776, the future president John Adams said, “statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone which can establish the very principles upon which freedom can securely stand.” Of course, contrary to misguided popular opinion, that worthy mindset was widely held among the founders who helped shape the political, educational, and legal foundation of the United States of America.
Such luminaries like Daniel Webster, Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Adams, and the father of our country, George Washington and many others echoed those same sentiments. They wisely believed that the strength of the republic was dependent upon the morality of “We the People.” They also believed that religion (I would say Christianity) must undergird it. The founders clearly understood and saw the proper education of young minds being near the center of positive American progress.
All one has to do is objectively look at the process of decline in the quality of life in America that is in line with the reduction in the worthiness of government school education. Many might say that what is called education is actually progressive government school, Saul Alinsky inspired indoctrination of students against all that is good. Also at the same time the standard of information regarding the quality of information regarding American history, math, science, etc. via common core and other deviant programs.
I for one have interviewed both high school and college students regarding subjects like American history, political science and civics. Needless to say most of them had no concept of what civics is. I must say that it was very disappointing to witness the lack of any knowledge about authentic American history. Yet they all could recite pro Muslim, anti-American, and anti-Christian bigotry. Many students even displayed a level of hostility against our constitution, capitalism, Christianity and even Fox News. All in All there was very little substantive evidence of intellectually stimulated sovereign individuals looking forward to building a good life in this great republic.
My concern is if these attitudes are not broken by truth and common sense, the United States of America has already seen her last days as a great nation. One of my other disappointments with the results the Godless, constitution free indoctrination is the inability of students to discriminate the crucial differences even concerning current events. For example, recently many American government school students gnashed their teeth and railed against presidential candidate Donald Trump. Why? Because he had the audacity to say “America should temporarily stop letting in Muslims until we can sort things out.” But yet, they hardly expressed a care in the world about the recent and not so recent Muslim terrorist attacks against our republic. There are few things more vulnerable than a nation who’s citizens are brainwashed against her defense and are clueless concerning authentic history, patriotism, and the importance of a strong moral fiber.
Unfortunately, because of a philosophical shift that took place in America which opened the door to the erosion in the quality of education and then moral standards¬, our beleaguered nation could soon suffer tragic consequences. It is as if the wisdom that America was once known for has taken wing and flown back to our heavenly father. Thus the United States open to the decisions and evil plans of the progressives like President Obama to fundamentally change America.
It is abundantly clear that the founding fathers were correct in noting that the United States would fail, if she lost her religious (or Christian) foundation. It is primarily incumbent upon Christian believers to stop being politically correct wimps and apathetic creeps. Christians and so-called conservative republicans like those in congress must stop bending over to please the progressives and their Islamic terrorist allies who are pouring into our nation by the tens of thousands. You can thank president Obama and Congress for not standing by their constitutional duty to protect this nation, the next time terrorists murder more American.
If the United States of America is to once again be truly great, with the set goals of Liberty and Justice for All, then we must reestablish the intestinal fortitude to boldly stand and battle against those who are either to stupid or simply evil enough to endanger our nation through a variety of horrendous blunders. Some of which are incompetence, or corrupting compromise of Christian moral, Constitutional and educational standards.
Finally, to reestablish authentic freedom and liberty, Americans must be motivated to be morally disciplined and self-controlled. Then we can totally wipe out any reason, real or imagined for the abusive control of an anti Bill of Rights, Agenda 21 leaning government that is hell bent on controlling us from cradle to grave. The choice is up to you dear reader. I for one pray to God almighty that you make the right one. God Bless You, God Bless America and may America Bless God.
