American Providence – A story of George Washington

I would like to share a story of George Washington, as told by David Barton of WallBuilders ministry, “that once appeared in virtually every student text in America, but hasn’t been seen in the last forty years.”

This story deals with George Washington when he was involved in the French and Indian War as a young man only twenty-three years of age.

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?

Why is crime, terrorism, and social disorder increasing? Why are more and more youth lost, confused, depressed, and deranged?

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).

Life



Human rights begin with the right to life!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...
- Declaration of Independence

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness



The Right to Life

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..."
- Declaration of Independence

Of course, it should be obvious, the right to life is the first and most fundamental right.

Let's pray that we and our fellow citizens more fully understand the worth, dignity and right to life of all, including the most vulnerable among us.

Property Rights: LaVoy Finicum executed by the FBI


[latest update: 2017-12-15]

January 26, 2016. Another sad day for America.

Western states ranchers and freemen were protesting federal government (mis)management of State's land (Ref. 3). No burning, no looting, no riots in the streets like Ferguson, Boston, or Occupy Wall Street. Yet, the FBI (aka Federal Bureau of Intimidation, aka Red Coats, aka Storm Troopers), has arrested the leadership, wounded one, and killed one!

Once again the FBI is being used as the Hammer of Oppression. (Ref. 1, 2)

Robert LaVoy Finicum

Executed by the Storm Troopers (FBI) January 26, 2016.

Truth: The Human Heart and Lessons of good and evil from Wonder Woman



Lessons on the sinful condition of the human heart, the reality of the battle of good and evil, and how love wins!

God

The fictional story of Wonder Woman is rooted in Greek Mythological gods (as in little "g" false gods).

myth: an idea or story that is believed by many people but that is not true.

Paul confronted these little "g" mythical god's when he was in Athens:

Disciple: ambassadors of Christ



Prayer:
"Dear Heavenly Father, we are humbled that you have called us and appointed us to be ambassadors of Christ in a world that is not our home.
We pray that your Holy Spirit will empower us to walk worthy of the calling.
We pray that Your unconditional love will flow through us to those who desperately need Your saving grace.
In the name of Christ who is worthy, amen." (1)

"In his book, Fishers of Men, Dr. Sumner Wemp describes what it means to be an ambassador of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings:

Justice: Jury Duty

Judicial branch and Jury information can be found in Article III, Amendment V, Amendment VI, Amendment VII of the Constitution.

"Look at jury service as an opportunity to "do good" for yourself and others. It's your chance to help the justice system deliver justice, which is absolutely essential to a free society." (1)

Call to Prayer: 40 Days of Prayer. August 21, 2017




There is a lot of violence, division, and anger in America right now.

Alt-Left, AntiFa, KKK white supremacists, and Alt-Right.

Why? I think it is "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)."
[see Hope: Modern Day Idols and Idolatry of the Church]

We need Christ!

"And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven.... But we have forgotten God...." (Abraham Lincoln's Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day)

"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." (Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., from sermon "A Knock at Midnight")

I have answered the call to 40 days of prayer.
