This is a letter to our friends –

From 85 to 20 somethings

My kids were pre-school aged when prayer was removed from public schools in the 60’s. Can you think of a better way for a society to teach a generation that God was irrelevant in preparing for life? Ask yourself (those in your 20’s) – Did it work?

Dear young people – Those of you who have accepted that God is irrelevant, have been robbed, mislead, cheated, lied to, and used, by a godless society that sees you as “cookie-cutter” tools for building a “great society”.

If God is irrelevant, what standard is left by which to decide what is “right” and what is “wrong”? Who is to say that your opinion is any better than the next person’s? Indeed there are universal laws of nature – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” “Care for those in need.” -BUT- Laws of nature are discovered by individual observation and reason. Thus, your conclusions may be different from another’s. You are all adrift in a sea of relativism where there are no fixed points.

Every person on earth knows there is a higher power than himself that is governing the universe. Many are choosing to hold that truth under as one would hold under a struggling drowning man.

On the other hand, there really is a creator God, who really does want the very best for each one of us. He is that truth that is struggling, against human nature, for the surface. Short of violating your liberty of choice, He has done and is doing everything He can to get your attention.

You do not need a Bible, a church membership, -anything- all you need is to acknowledge what you really know is true – and submit to it! The result will be life-changing. Suddenly, absolutes begin to make sense. There really is a right and wrong.

You were placed upon this earth for a purpose – to love God, then love others. It only works in that order!

“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’”

[Matthew 22:36-40]

This is a letter to our friends –

One World Government

“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else, I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” [Isaiah 45]

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” [St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians]

Lately my e-mail has had notes and queries about the international conspiracies. There are many in history as well as those active today. Some are “hyped up” to be larger than life. Others are 100% real. Human nature leads those addicted to power to dream big dreams. The ultimate power dream is “world-domination”.

As people look away from God, the danger of such conspiracies grows in their view. We hear, “It is important to know your enemy.” Some patriots make a detailed study of the conspiracy that has their attention. In order to “awaken us to the dangers” they seek ever more sensational examples to shock us into action.

Pause and consider with me – If you were God’s enemy, wouldn’t you want people to study what you are doing rather than what God is doing? Wouldn’t you be ready to introduce new things to study when the older ones grow stale? Wouldn’t you want attention focused upon evil rather than righteousness?

The next “Principles of American Government” online course begins tomorrow. I am often asked why we do not teach about these conspiracies. I respond. “Learning of them produces awe at the size of the problem, fear, frustration, anger, hopelessness.” It often produces misguided activism. Not very good goals for study!

Rather – When we learn of God’s hand in human history, the laws of nature and of nature’s God, and principles we can rely upon in making our day-to-day choices, the result is faith, fearlessness, hope, confidence. Much better goals for study!

As Isaiah prophesized, one day every knee shall bow. Some rebellious souls will be standing tall “on the inside” – BUT – when a nine foot angel with a flaming sword says to kneel, that knee will bow!

I choose to be among those who rejoice to bow to a loving God well in advance of that day.
