George Washington to the Hebrew Congregation

From George Washington to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, 18 August 1790

Gentlemen.
While I receive, with much satisfaction, your Address replete with expressions of affection and esteem; I rejoice in the opportunity of assuring you, that I shall always retain a grateful remembrance of the cordial welcome I experienced in my visit to Newport,2 from all classes of Citizens.

The reflection on the days of difficulty and danger which are past is rendered the more sweet, from a consciousness that they are succeeded by days of uncommon prosperity and security. If we have wisdom to make the best use of the advantages with which we are now favored, we cannot fail, under the just administration of a good Government, to become a great and a happy people.

The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people, that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.

It would be inconsistent with the frankness of my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my Administration, and fervent wishes for my felicity. May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree, and there shall be none to make him afraid. May the father of all mercies scatter light and not darkness in our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in his own due time and way everlastingly happy.

Go: Washington

Lyell and Darwin’s return to Pagan theory

And since modern geologists admit Lyell made up stories and falsified data; and Darwin said Lyell devised his theory for the sole purpose of attacking the Bible. So much for objectivity…

“In England, It was (Lyell’s) geology and the theory of evolution that changed us from a Christian to a pagan nation.”
F. Sherwood Taylor, Curator, Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, England

Many Millennials actually think of themselves as enlightened, rather than realizing that we’ve just returned to paganism as a nation. And not only pagan, but a new viral form of paganism that was rare among the ancients. The old pagan pantheists served many gods, but almost always recognized that there was one creator god that existed above themselves and the other gods, and that this God had immutable moral laws and the last say in how we paid for our transgressions. Millennials think that the culture alone makes up the rules for good or bad, and that good or bad are relative to the culture. So, stripping the unborn or infants of any right to exist, infanticide, cannibalism, bigamy, pornography, human sacrifice, fornication, it’s all good, as the culture dictates; there really are no intrinsic rights or wrongs, just cultural differences.

“By offering evolution in place of God as a cause of history, Darwin removed the theological basis of the moral code of Christianity. And the moral code that has no fear of God is very shaky. That’s the condition we are in.”
Will Durant, prominent non- christian historian, in Chicago Tribune article, We are in the last stage of a pagan period, April 1980, shortly before his death

My First Abortion Rescue; 1988 San Antonio, Texas

So my original involvement with the abortion rescue movement was something I was dragged into. I felt God was in it, but I wasn’t happy about it. I was already involved in missionary training and street preaching and door knocking every week. I had 3 kids and a beautiful wife; why would I want to block an entrance to an abortion clinic and go to jail? I had already spent way too much time in jail as a kid and young man. When we hit the San Antonio county jail, I realized it was my first time back in jail in at least 15 years. As I squatted on the floor in the 25 man cell, my spirits dropped. They had broken the hundreds of us up into 4-6 man groups and stuck us in cells with about 20 hardened convicts and young offenders, to intimidate us, I think. Didn’t work. As I sat there depressed, a 40 year old house painter, a baptist street preacher, stood up looking fired up and opened his Bible and began to preach. In front of me a Colombian mule, a cocaine runner looked at the preacher with hate in his eyes. I thought, oh, no, I’m gonna have to try and tackle this guy. But suddenly a strange look came over his face and he stood up and walked to the toilet and sat down, hands on his ears and looking at the ground. Old Bob, the preacher fired up. I could feel my spirits rising as he preached, and then noticed something funny. All the guys sitting in the cell, their skin scarred with old knife cuts and bullet holes, were starting to rock back and forth. Some were starting to cry. It was unreal. With in minutes the entire cell, almost everyone, was rocking back and forth, eyes closed as Bob preached on about a fiery hell and deserving sinners. Something about being locked up made judgement much more believable than normal. As he stopped the tears were flowing. And as each man was called to transfer out, they walked by Bob, shook his hand and said, “thank you sir, thank you! “. He responded, “Remember what I told you, son.” Yes, sir!” they said. Unreal- like something out of the book of acts. Just telling you how it was. Full truth.

No Bible, no Democracy-

Why with the removal of the bible we’ll lose true democracy and republican government and be reduced again to rulership of the elites; Amazon, Google, Facebook, liberal elites. Jeff Bezoz, Zuckerberg, Obama types. They love it, they have no real god besides themselves and the culture that they as gods can fight to create; what we can read, what we see, what we think, ad infinitum. We the people are the real losers. You want to fight for real democracy again and equality among men, rich or poor? Fight for the bible. It is our only chance.

With the Bible, we had a common authority and morality. A King or Pope couldn’t mandate right or wrong; any peasant could read it for themselves. This brought about a sense of empowerment and equality never heard of before in the annals of history. even pope or kings could be held accountable by the common people. Whether you were a plow boy or the neighborhood woodcutter, or a land owner and a Duke, you could read the bible for yourself and you form your own opinion. This brought about in a very real way the first great democracies in modern history

The elites never liked that. Now 200 years later, God has been removed from schools and government and once again the power to dictate everything from morality to politics is back in the hands of a hundred little gods. They’ll dictate our behavior and our government, and since they now control the media, they’ll push us towards bigger government; global sized dictatorship (they won’t use that word) and since there is no longer a common authority for the peasant to appeal to for redress or moral accountability, we’ll be forced to wait upon our social elites. They will dictate right and wrong, what’s true,  what is false. They will be the highest power. When we let Sola Scriptura be scrapped, we give up our freedoms and are forced to serve lesser god’s. Good luck with that.

Churchill on Moses

Churchill went through a period of adopted atheism and popular pantheism as a young man; but after being saved by miraculous prayer during the Boer War, he began to return to the faith taught by his old bible toting nanny. Here he is on Moses;

“We reject, however, with scorn all those learned and laboured myths that Moses was but a legendary figure upon whom the priesthood and the people hung their essential social, moral, and religious ordinances.We believe that the most scientific view, the most up-to-date and rationalistic conception, will find its fullest satisfaction in taking the Bible story literally, and in identifying one of the greatest of human beings with the most decisive leap forward ever discernible in the human story. We remain unmoved by the tomes of Professor Gradgrind and Dr. Dryasdust. We may be sure that all these things happened just as they are set out according to Holy Writ. We may believe that they happened to people not so very different from ourselves, and that the impressions those people received were faithfully recorded and have been transmitted across the centuries with far more accuracy than many of the telegraphed accounts we read of the goings-on of today. In the words of a forgotten work of Mr. Gladstone, we rest with assurance upon ‘The impregnable rock of Holy Scripture.’
The Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, “Moses”, from the collection of essays Thoughts and Adventures, first published November 1932; (London: Odhams, 1947 edition) pp.224-5:

Bill Written by Thomas Jefferson as Governor of Virginia in 1779

A Bill written and promoted by Thomas Jefferson as governor of Virginia in 1779. Hmmm, not really the liberal atheist they try to make him out to be, eh?

“Marriages prohibited by the Levitical law shall be null; and persons marrying contrary to that prohibition and cohabitating as man and wife, convicted thereof in the General Court, shall be [fined] from time to time until they separate.”

Thomas Jefferson, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson
Vol. II, 557, “A Bill Annulling the Marriages Prohibited by the Levitical Law, and Appointing the Mode of Solemnizing Lawful Marriage.”
