Losing Our American Freedoms!
by David J. Stewart
We are fast losing our freedoms as American citizens. Never before has there been such a threat to America's very existence. Our manufacturing jobs have been leaving the country at a startling rate since the 1980's. Health insurance premiums are sky-rocketing. Employers are offering less and less benefits. Social Security has been run into the ground be irresponsible bureaucrats. Our nation is in MASSIVE debt for trillions of dollars, again thanks to irresponsible government. The dark storm clouds are gathering. The dots are in place waiting for the lines to be drawn. America is in big trouble.
Unfortunately, the average American is COMPLACENT and either doesn't care or doesn't comprehend what is happening to our nation.
Many Christians, unfortunately, don’t study the events unfolding and can’t realize that time is short, and many are being deceived. Not only is time short prophetically, but time is short for our liberties. If you examine the laws that have been passed in this new century alone, you will realize that our freedom to share the Gospel is about to be greatly hindered, if not made illegal. The legal definition for ‘Terrorist’ is kept extremely broad [HR. 3162,Sec. 802, (a)(5)(B)(ii)].
"From the sarcastic standpoint of those who rule us WITHOUT OUR CONSENT, in violation of the U.S. Constitution, America is becoming too populated for there to be supposedly guaranteed rights. Remember, the Bill of Rights is heavily packed with the word NO. It is a shield against a tyrannical central government. At the hands, however, of a corrupt and venal federal judiciary and a treasonous central government, and a bought off and blackmailed Congress, the Bill of Rights is a worthless, useless piece of paper. The cowardly mass media are mere scriveners, writing down what they are dictated.
Under the disguise of leading a religious "crusade" against the Moslem world, every utterance dripping with the word "terrorist", are the ruling elites in the process of overthrowing the American Republic?" —Sherman Skolnick
Throughout the Bible, there are many precedents of God's people denying what was happening around them (Jeremiah 5:26-31; 6:10-14; 25:28-33; 27:14; Isaiah 8:15; 30:8-13; 42:24-25). God says that their destruction will come suddenly, as a swelling wall that suddenly collapses.
This prayer was given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people. When Pastor Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done...
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We confess that we have ridiculed
the absolute truth of Your Word and call it Pluralism.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa, and Korea. Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on "The Rest of the Story" on the radio and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.
The prayer of Pastor Joe Wright is the horrifying truth about America. The United States has deteriorated into a large Sodom and Gomorrah!
Who would have thought twenty years ago that we'd see thousands of cameras being installed in cities across America to spy on it's citizens. Who would have thought that such monstrosities as Patriot Acts I and II would ever become law (thus suspended our Bill of Rights). Who would have thought that the government could force parents to drug their own children with dangerous substances.
Should this be a surprise in a nation of moral debauchery?
Who would have thought that a day would come when two men could legally become married in America and adopt children. Who would have thought that little children would be aborted (murdered) by the millions in a nation which God has blessed so mightily? Our founding fathers would have cardiac arrests if they could see the mess we've gotten ourselves into as a nation.
We have become complacent and weakened as a nation.
Who would have thought that our own government would steal our land and give it away. Presently, 68% of our national parks and preserves are under U.N. administration.
The average American citizen is woefully ignorant of such evils which are being committed against the American family. America will NOT remain free if it's people continue to allow the government to steal their land, squander their money, borrow them into more debt, and rob them of their freedoms in the name of "terrorism."
"It is obviously good and proper to respect the U.S. flag, perpetuated with the blood of American heroes. On the other hand, it can be a fatal mistake, a nuking of the Bill of Rights, not to recognize scoundrels who wrap themselves in the same flag to cover up their crimes against the American common people." -Sherman Skolnick
We are foolish not to follow the wisdom of our founding fathers who warned us about government tyranny...
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." -James Madison
"It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government." -Thomas Paine
"When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will ... become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated." - Thomas Jefferson
"Evil triumphs when good men do nothing." -Thomas Jefferson
"Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society." -Benjamin Franklin
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." -Benjamin Franklin
"They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety." -Ben Franklin
'It would be a hard government that should tax its people one-tenth part of their income. -Ben Franklin
Our rights do not come from the U.S. government. Our rights do not come from the Constitution or our Bill of Rights. Our rights and freedoms come from God in heaven. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights merely "outline" our rights. God created mankind free with a freewill to decide for himself. If men and women decide to take their freedom for granted, then they are assured to eventually lose it. We need to repent as a nation and come back to God.
