“A people who will not be ruled by God are destined to be ruled by tyrants.” William Penn.
Many of us who are 40+ rejoice that so much of the younger crowd are getting the message about the CFR, Federal Reserve, debt-money, North American Union, limited government, and the Constitution. Armed with this information you can change the world. However, I have noted with concern that there is a decided lack of moral foundation to sustain the liberty they are so eager to obtain. Many of the younger crowd frequenting this site and supporting the RP campaign have no higher ideals than the shallow notion of legalized marijuana and gambling. Worse, I have noted that many of them appear to be addicted to sensuality and sexual license: The name of Howard Stern – king of pornographic radio - appears way too often in posts on this site.
The founders of this country were almost to the man devout Christians who saw their struggle as a moral outflow of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Critical language in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution’s concepts of limited government and the division of powers were borrowed from Christian philosophers like John Locke. One of the great slogans of the Revolutionary war was “no king but Jesus.” George Washington said that religion and morality are the twin props of liberty. Almost all the advances civilization has made toward liberty began with the gospel. Rome, the most oppressive and brutal government the world has ever seen, was conquered by the gospel of Christ as brave men and women went to the arena for their faith, rather than renounce Christ. It is this sort of moral conviction that brings and sustains freedom; not Howard Stern and legalized pot. If we don’t have a deeper moral basis for our revolution than this, then perhaps its better that we fail, for the result will not be true liberty, but moral decay leading to tyranny. Indeed, it is the loss of true religion and morality that has brought us to this cross road in the first place.
