By yielding to a false form of civility, we sometimes allow our critics to intimidate us. As I have said, active citizens are often subjected to truly vile attacks. They are branded as mean-spirited, racist, Uncle Tom, homophobic, sexist, et cetera. To this we often respond, if not succumb, so as not to be constantly fighting by trying to be to non-judgmental. That is,we censor ourselves. This is not civility. It is cowardice, or well-intentioned self-deception at best. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

This is War!

“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” -2 Corinth 13:5

This may be my last political commentary so I feel the need to lay it on the line.

It is plain to see that there is a form of special interest driven political decision making where risk and greater public interest is sacrificed for a window of opportunity motivated by the greed and motivations of a reckless few. In retrospect, the Bush crew royally screwed us in various ways (to which the full extent is still not fully clear).

The Republican establishment have sold out to special interests. The risk was too high. They have lost their credibility and by acting reckless have left us to be fed to the wolves. Now it’s all gone bad…..

Fools rush in. Let’s not lose our objectivity. We the People are an afterthought. We are a people robbed of privacy, security and democracy.

The GOP has all the momentum to impeach and watch as they do absolutely nothing (even if they take the Senate). There will be the confirmation of complicity. They are the bought, sold and blackmailed.

We are a faithless nation. Self control, self respect and common decency has been cast aside. We loathe God and His ways. Even Allah is embraced as an avenue to political power and personal gain.

The righteous paths have become hidden. Our spiritual eyes are closed. We can no longer find the light. Our consciences are seared.

God is now booed at political conventions and special events. Ironically, these God-hating scoffers are casting blame and disdain at a God they claim does not exist.

Many who do leave room for a Creator want to establish their own narrative and set their own terms. They grant themselves the power and authority to control the relationship. They want a God that will tolerate apathy and indifference. They bury their faith and keep it hidden. They are uncertain and ashamed of their beliefs.

I’m not talking about religion, I’m talking about truth.

A godless nation is capable of all kinds of atrocities under the banner of a greater good. Man is spiritually resistant and wholly corruptible. In a faithless society, behaviors are excused, lies are tolerated, and theft is endorsed by the promoters of secular humanism. A denial of truth does not make reality any less real.

Our faith may cost us everything but ‘going along to get along’ is no longer an option. It never should have been…

“We live in a fallen world that lives in darkness and death. The kingdom of the evil one spread abroad throughout the land. You and I were not called to play video games, we were not called to sit in front of a television set, we were not called to give ourselves to trifles, we were called to advance a kingdom, to live with a passion, to fight for Him and to only every once in a while drop our swords and look up for a smile. I want to fight, I don’t want comfort… the kingdom of God is built not by those who rest easily…but by those who go out into the streets and fight and the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. They are mighty. Intercessory prayer, the proclamation of the gospel and sacrificial love. Men rise up old men of God do what you were called to do. Be valiant and strong and know that it’s going to cost you. You take your stand beside Jesus Christ in His cause and you watch the devil come after you buffeting you from the outside and from the inside, but that’s what war is about and so He has given us a great commission” - Paul Washer

If this country is to be saved it is going to require God fearing, freedom loving citizens to rise up and take the reigns. But a full and complete restoration will require a supernatural event. Only then will things truly be made right. Forget ‘equality’ fueled political activism. We are all equally selfish and depraved. The change has to happen on the inside. We all need mercy and grace. These are not things to be lobbied for or to be obtained through political force.

An eradication of the source and knowledge of truth will only result in a form of big brother secular bondage. Standing for nothing, the godless secularist falls for anything. And fall they shall…..

Not Even Kings (or Presidents) Are Above the Law

Bob Ellis

Did you know that the Old Testament kings in Israel were not a law unto themselves? That they were under the authority of a law higher than themselves? Did you know that presidents today are under a higher law? Why do we allow some to behave as if they were a law unto themselves?

Inscription on the U.S. Dept of Justice Building

Law vs Anti-Law

Dr. Robert R. Owens

America was founded upon the principles of Natural Law. The Progressives led us into the realms of Legal Positivism. The vast government apparatus they have constructed has progressed into a dystopian fantasy land beyond law where faceless bureaucrats in an alphabet soup of departments create regulations with the force of law from thin air. Such is the journey from tyranny to tyranny in ten generations. Such is the journey from law to anti-law.

On Course to Never Pay Off National Debt

Robert Romano

We’re more likely to default on our national debt than to ever pay it off. The national debt has increased every single year since 1958 to its current level. Who really believes that trend will be reversed?

Pastors Resist Houston Mayor’s Power Grab

Guest Author

Houston is home to one of NASA's most sophisticated space centers -- but even it would have trouble finding signs of intelligence in the local Mayor's office. The city's highest official is blowing past the First Amendment at warp speed -- and lighting a political powder keg in the process.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
