Cry Out America! 9-11-2001



Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD.

On this day may we fully awaken and return to the Lord. God prescribed in Joel 1:14 how we are to return, we are to “Consecrate a fast; call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.” In obedience to the Lord, we have gathered here on this occasion to do exactly that.

O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?

Civil Rights: Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.



Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
A Baptist preacher.

"Rev. Martin Luther King... found the Bible so compelling that his undergraduate degree was in Bible studies and his Ph.D. was in theology." (1)

"Moral principles have lost their distinctiveness. For modern man, absolute right and wrong are a matter of what the majority is doing. Right and wrong are relative to likes and dislikes and the customs of a particular community. We have unconsciously applied Einstein's theory of relativity, which properly described the physical universe, to the moral and ethical realm ... This mentality has brought a tragic breakdown of moral standards, and the midnight of moral degeneration deepens." (1, from sermon "A Knock at Midnight")

Unfortunately, in 2017, the culture of death and politics of government dependence has created a culture with no ethics, morality, or humanity, in other words, "the midnight of moral degeneration."

Liberty: The Higher Law and Moral Framework of Liberty



Samuel Adams taught that people will not give up liberties or be subdued if they have knowledge and virtue. But if they are ignorant and immoral (un-virtuous), they will be defeated without foreign invaders. Krisanne Hall says "with knowledge there is power." (1)

What informed the founders that they would be willing to give their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to fight for liberty?
They had knowledge! (2)

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Independence Day



The American colonies were once ruled by a bad King, much like God warned Samuel about when we trust in and depend on earthly kings instead of God:

“’This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons. . . He will take your daughters. . . He will take the best [of everything you have]. . . and you yourselves will become his slaves.’”
- Paraphrase of 1 Samuel 8:7, 11-18

Hope: Modern Day Idols and Idolatry of the Church



Do not trust in politicians, they can not save you. When they die they return to the earth, and on that very day their plans perish!
Psalm 146:3-4

Why do so many people today put their hope in government and politicians?

Because the Church has been "led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ" (2 Corinthians 11:2-4) and has become friends with the world and enemies of God (James 4:4-5).
