Where We Are

Here is the very big picture.

Western Civilization has lost its theological, moral, and aesthetic roots. It is deracinated and living on a fading memory of incomparable truths, which it cannot support without Judeo-Christian knowledge. See Francis Schaeffer, How Shall We Then Live?

2. The state, in the absence of strong religious knowledge and culture-building and culture-sustaining, will absorb the function value-creation.

3. Since there is no law above the law, the state is directed by "the will to power" (Nietzsche) more than anything else. See J. W. Montgomery, The Law Above the Law.

4. The state, having abandoned "the doctrine of objective moral value" (C.S. Lewis, "The Abolition of Man"), become an Innovator. It creates values ex nihilo. As such, it conditions humanity; it does not and cannot persuade that its actions serve objective moral values.

5. Given technological developments and statism, the state seeks to ape God's omniscience, requiring total knowledge of its servants (not citizens, and outmoded concept, given the death of objective value).

6. Therefore, as the state absorbs health care, limits personal proper rights, regulates more and more institutions, it takes away our Constitutional freedoms, since the Constitution has no moral authority, given what the Innovators claim. See Francis Schaeffer, A Christian Manifesto.

7. This is what is left of America. It may be a mortal wound--but not to the Kingdom of God

My worst fears are realized:

American does not know how to think,
has no moral or political principles worth having,
is manipulated by images and slogans,
does not fear the idol of the State
does not give a rip about unborn children;
we will be taxes for their murders,
does not believe in its own God-given greatness.

American has no fear of God.
Without that, nothing remains, but a
persecuted remnant.

Everything will change, for the worse, for the rest of our lives. This was a turning point, and we turned toward Hell.

Not Jesus

The Blaze claims that 1.6 million Americans will write in "Jesus Christ" for President. For Jesus' sake, do not do this. He is Lord of the cosmos, but not running for earthly office. Be a good citizen of heaven and earth and vote for the candidate who most adheres to America's Judeo-Christian Values: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

To Christians

To my Christian readers.

You are a child of heaven but also a citizen of earth. You are to seek the welfare of the city to which you have been exiled (Jer. 29:7) and be "salt and light" in this broken world (Matthew 5:1-18) We are to render to state what is the state's (which is not everything) and to God what is God's (Matthew 22:15-23). We are to see the welfare of "the least of these" (Matthew 25:31-46).

1. Being apolitical is being apathetic about how God's world is governed in the civil sphere. Not everything is politics, but politics is crucial to our life together on God's earth. Some political views are closer to a biblical ethic than others. Therefore:
2. Seek the good of the city, the least the last the lost, by voting for candidates that deny statism (see Ezek 28:1-10). This idolatry and bad news for any society.
3. The state does not create wealth; people and other institutions do that. Let the people and voluntary assembles thrive (under the rule of Law, not the rule of men).
4. Putting more and more souls on welfare and food stamps does not dignify them or help solves their problems. Happiness is earned, it is not derived from state handouts. That fosters a parasite mentality.
5. Allowing over one million unborn human beings made in God's image to be killed each year through abortion is morally wrong. Fifty-four million (54,000,000) have been so killed since Roe v. Wade in 1973. We have blood on our hands and are tracking it into our churches, homes, and schools. We need to be watchman, prophets who call out sin for those who cannot: the unborn. You cannot make your cheap peace with a President that would expand "reproductive rights" (abortion on demand) and insure that abortions are paid for with tax money, that would make religious organizations insure for abortion.
6. The Bible teaches that debt is unhealthy. It should be limited not protracted. We must get our debt under control, or it will control us, and crush the life out of our economy and our spirits.
7. The state has "the power of the sword" (Romans 13:-17) and has the right to protect its people by force. This is a hostile and dangerous world. Cutty back on the military and not protecting our citizens abroad (Libya) is a dereliction of duty and a disgrace.
8. Be not deceived, but judge properly (see John 7:24). The political language of compassion, it not the same thing as real policies that give the poor a chance. Moreover, since the state is an impersonal agency based on coercion, it cannot be compassionate, but it can be just. Individuals, churches, private groups can be compassionate, and should be. When they are taxes up to their eyeballs, they have less to give.

In light of (1)-(8), please vote knowledgeably, wisely, and prayerfully.

“Christian parents can debrief their children after school to counteract the non-Christian thinking.” This could be called “anorexic education.” The child is gorged with secularism seven or eight hours a day and then coaxed to vomit it up after school. If Christian education was pursued such extremes could be avoided. It is also questionable how effective such a method can be. Can a few hours a week of discussion really neutralize the teaching of an entire week? While an antidote may neutralize the effects of a poison somewhat, the best course is to avoid the poison to begin with.

Most Americans were deceived about Obama; they did not research his beliefs or his past; they were swept away by emotion or (especially the young, see Obama's Zombies) were mindless Democrat-no-matter-what voters.

Now no one has an excuse. Obama was mentored by a Communist (see The Communist); he went to an apostate, black liberationist church for twenty years in order to learn how to talk religion to build his political career. He was good friends with and American terrorist, who supported his political career: Bill Ayers (now a Professor, God help us).

What Obama has done. Created a gigantic debt; kept unemployment very high; appeased our enemies; taken over health care, working toward a single-payer (complete socialist) health "care" system, which requires Americans to pay for abortion. Has been the most arrogant, corrupt, non-transparent, most prevaricating President in my lifetime.

America, please wake up.

If you vote for Obama you are:

1. Supporting tax-payer funded abortion and embryonic stem cell "research"--killing them
2. More unemployment for the poor and others
3. A weakened American military in an increasingly dangerous world: Russia, not just militant Islam (Iran, etc.).
4. Impossible debt levels which will cripple the economy for decades.
5. Amnesty for illegal aliens and permeable border
6. Same sex marriage.
7. Arrogance and egotism at the White House.
8. Joe Biden as a heartbeat from being President.
9. Higher energy prices.
10. Wasteful government programs for "green" (meaning non-existent or impractical) energy.
11. More civil government interference in the auto industry.
12. More and more unconstitutional Czars and Executive Orders.
13. More appeasement of radical Islam and Islam being honored more in the White House and by the President than is Christianity or Judaism. A Dearborn, MI, newspaper just endorsed Obama because of his foreign policy. Think about it.
14. More movement toward a single-payer health system: meaning: the state take over of medicine.
15. Too tired to go on, but I will fight until the end.
