"We once were a Christian nation.
Those were America's golden years,
when people actually did possess
some values which
gave them a semblance of freedom."
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
"America is great because she is good, and if America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great." Alexis de Tocqueville

Like many of you, I am sickened by the stolen election and its aftermath. While I continue to pray for divine intervention, I have to ask myself, do we, as a people and a country, actually deserve to be free?
We are a nation in which roughly half of its citizens support the murder of unborn babies. Think about that. We support ripping unborn babies out of their mother's wombs and murdering them. We actually vote for public officials who legislate for this atrocity. Many of our citizens have had abortions or are the fathers of aborted babies. Why on earth would God allow such a people to remain free?
We are a nation in which the majority of its citizens are so stupid they believe in phoney shootings, phoney viruses, and phoney weapons of mass destruction. We believe in all those hoaxes and more, but we don't believe in God or the Bible. Why on earth would God allow such a people to be free?
Remember Iraq's weapons of mass destruction? There were flags and yellow ribbons everywhere. I got into some pretty intense arguments with people at the time. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed over our country's actions. Turns out the whole thing was a lie. Do people so easily duped deserve to be free?
We are a nation in which upwards of 70% of our citizens watch and read porn. We condone and support almost every kind of sexual debauchery you can think of, and debaucheries that aren't yet condoned and supported will be in the near future. We allow our children to be sexualized and taught by sexual perverts. Why on earth would God allow such a people to be free?
On June 26, 2006, while speaking at a Call to Renewal conference sponsored by a consortium of so-called Christians, Barack Obama said, "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation ..."
Read between the lines and you can see that he was admitting we once were a Christian nation. Those were America's golden years, when people actually did possess some values which gave them a semblance of freedom.
Of course, it wasn't all roses in those days. The price for freedom was eternal vigilance and our forefathers didn't mess around.
There were whipping posts in every town. Scoundrels were tarred and feathered. Traitors and murderers were executed. But the upside was general peace and an orderly society. People behaved themselves in those days much more so than today.
Families flourished. Children were taught the Bible in school and brought up with morals and a sense of decency. Alas, when our Christian roots went away, so did our freedom.
Way back in 1826, a French historian named Alexis de Tocqueville came to America to study our success. Here's what he wrote about it: "I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there; in her fertile land and boundless prairies, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."
Well, we've ceased to be good and we've certainly ceased to be great. The situation we're in now is as if God is saying, "Okay, you don't want to listen to me? Here's what's in store for you when I'm not around."
And the result is Communism. Hard-core Communism, the likes of which are going to stun the majority of people who are still somewhat awake.
Perhaps the saddest part of all this is that we have only ourselves to blame. Not you or I individually, but all of us collectively. We've turned our backs on God, so He has turned His back on us.
If you're feeling discouraged over the decline of our country and pining for good news, I have some for you. It may not be the kind of good news you want to hear, but for those who have ears to hear, it will be. We are on this earth only a short time before we are called to our eternal destination.
As long as you are still alive, there's time for you to get right with God. There's time to ensure that your destination will be Heaven. You'll be in the minority, that's for sure. But at least you will have made it. The country, and indeed the entire world, might be going to hell in a hand basket, but you can still save your soul.
The absolute best advice I can give to you right now is to immediately begin planning your afterlife. This country is on the brink of collapse. The new incoming administration will take it over that brink and into complete devastation. The majority of people have no idea how bad it's going to get and will be in a state of complete panic. You don't have to be among them. Heaven awaits you, if you're willing to do your part. Make it your #1 priority. I'll do whatever I can to help you.
