THE SLIPPERY SLOPE
“The first battlefield is the rewriting of history. Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily destroyed.”
Karl Marx, author of The Communist Manifesto
Most Americans are aware of the fiery violence that occurred in Charlottesville over the destruction of a Confederate Statue and the foolishness that has followed it.
President Trump gave a speech the following day and condemned both sides of the mayhem for their lawless actions. Immediately following his speech, the news media, the liberal Democrats were joined by the many of our weak, compromising Congressional Republicans in attacking the President for his comments, regardless of how true or untrue they might have been.
And then came the destruction. The mayor of Baltimore had Confederate statues removed during the night. Statues of other well known Americans, many not at all related to the Confederacy were, are under the threat to be, torn down. Across the nation, lunacy reigned as people became frantic in their zeal to erase each and every symbol of America’s past.
The Lincoln Memorial was spray painted in graffiti, demands were made to remove the Washington Monument as well and the Jefferson Monument from their places in Washington. And I read this morning where our Federal Government now has a plan to add verbiage to the Jefferson Monument to include his “racist views.”
As we look at events like this and the actions that have followed we ask ourselves, “Why this insanity?” “What’s really going on and what’s behind all of this anyway?”
First, let me suggest to you that it is really not about the statues at all or even the evil days of slavery. It is about the hatred of America and her Christian heritage.
Our nation’s history is inseparably tied to the morality of the Judeo-Christian faith. America was founded as a Christian nation. Open to people of all faiths, to worship freely, and that is the true essence of freedom, but nevertheless our U.S. Constitution, State Charters, laws and so many other foundations of our Union are replete with teachings of the Holy Scriptures.
Keeping that in mind, it becomes clear that this is a spiritual issue even more than a physical one. I’m not claiming that bronze images of people of history matter all that much. What I am saying is – America’s history is under attack and has been for many years primarily because its foundational principles reflect biblical truths.
The 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson said, “A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today…America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify those devotions to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of Holy Scripture.”
The tactic we see employed in America today is called by the Communists the act of “deconstructionism.” In order to take over a society, first you must deconstruct those necessary elements in which the people find pride and respect for their country’s past and present.
Any signs of that now?
Disrespect the flag, the national anthem, the Constitution, the American military, the police, the right to life, the family unit, the…, I don’t need to go on. You get the picture. Every newscast, every magazine, every sporting event, every school graduation, we see it happening before our very eyes.
These are the results of the last 50 years of deconstructionism of the American spirit which began in the hippie 1960’s and has multiplied itself over and over in the news media, the educational systems, politics, the movie and television industry and those who specialize in the rewriting of history.
But – there’s hope America, and that hope is found through the faithful teaching and propagation of what America really is and God’s undeniable role in our nation’s history. Jesus reminded us, if we know the truth it will set us free” John 8:32
WHAT WE DO
God spoke through the prophet, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6
That’s what we do each and every day at There’s Hope America ministries through radio, media, and print, we broadcast the Word of God and America’s true history to stand against those forces that would destroy our nation and attack our faith.
Thank all of you who faithfully support us as you show your love for God and Country by investing in our pointing America back to God.
