The Framers of the U.S. Constitution were clear about the necessary relationship between virtue and liberty. Benjamin Franklin said, "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
John Adams agreed, providing the following quote, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
Samuel Adams: "If we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves."
The Father of our Country, George Washington, during his Farewell Address, said, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports."
As a system based on a foundation of Judeo-Christian values, our adherence to our God-given moral standard is not only important, it is critical if we expect to continue to maintain liberty.
Franklin's reference to "more need of masters" alludes to the reality that when we fail to be virtuous government takes action to force its own warped morality upon us. Should government demand by force of law that we must be good Samaritans, and do so based upon their definition of what a good Samaritan is? Must we be forced to play nice, which, according to the liberal left includes making sure that our speech is guarded by government for fear that we may say something that in their eyes is considered "hate speech"?
Have we become the corrupt and vicious society that Benjamin Franklin warned against?
On the back of my book, "Silenced Screams," I wrote, "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he doesn't exist. The second greatest trick Satan ever pulled is convincing an entire population that killing their own children is not evil."
The very fact that we have to fight for the lives of innocent babies from being slaughtered while they journey through the first stage of their personhood is unacceptable. The idea that the Supreme Court had to even hear a case regarding whether or not government should continue to subsidize the gruesome practice of abortion through various funding mechanisms is appalling (and since the sacrifice of innocent blood has its roots in Pagan religious practices, should not the very idea that Congress is passing laws allowing funding for organizations like Planned Parenthood be seen as a violation of the establishment clause in the First Amendment?) We have become a corrupt and vicious society. We kill our babies in the womb, and we champion sexual immorality. The very idea that Christians will have to serve time in jail for not bending over backwards for homosexuals is incredibly troubling, and would never have been considered only a few decades ago.
In an article by Rachel Ray, the realization is that the sacrifice of our babies to some kind of dark entity even exists in today's society, not to mention the other things going on in society, is not just some slight departure from our moral compass. It is a coordinated attack against our way of life on a supernatural level.
She writes, "Witchcraft is thriving in the U.S., with an estimated 1.5 million Americans now identifying as witches - more than the total number of Presbyterians. As Christianity declines across the country, paganism has swung to the mainstream, with witchcraft paraphernalia for sale on every high street and practises normalised across popular culture. In the past two years, it has also become darkly politicised."
Ray then goes on to discuss connections between transgenderism and witchcraft, via the person who placed a ritual hex U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last October. The hex was attended by, and championed, by witchcraft's allies, as well, including atheists and humanists.
The article explains that millennials are looking for spiritualism outside traditional religion, just as the hippies were, and just as the progressive liberal commies have ever since. Socialism, after all, cannot accept the Christian God, or any other non-governmental god, because if one has a belief in potential deliverance by a deity outside the government and human capabilities, then when all is going horribly you will seek out God, rather than government and humanity.
God places in every human the desire to seek Him out. When we reject Him, we still seek. We just begin to seek in the wrong direction. They often reject God because of our natural rebellious nature as humans, and the reasoning that if God is a loving God, how is it possible that the universe can be so full of death, chaos, destruction, and decay? How can a loving God allow murder, war and molestation?
They don't understand the answer because they have rejected the true meaning of free will, and liberty. True free will, and liberty, is only possible if we have the choice to also reject it. Their version of morality (acceptance of homosexuality, acceptance of abortion, acceptance of socialism) cannot accept rejection, so they use an authoritarian manner to force it into place. If someone must be coerced by legislation to not speak out or act out against those issues, is that truly liberty?
As with liberty, free will is God-given, but to be true we must also be given the opportunity to reject God's love, as well as the opportunity to embrace it. If we are not given both options, then our acceptance of Him would not be true. Rejection of the One and True God, however, carries with it consequences. He laid out a moral standard for us to follow, and when we reject Him, we reject His moral standard, and as a result we live in a world full of death, chaos, destruction, and decay . . . not because God caused such things, or wants to allow them to occur, but because they are a direct consequence of our rejection of His Love.
The witch who placed the hex on Judge Kavanaugh admits to the violent nature of her anti-God beliefs. She stated, according to Rachel Ray's article, that she was "absolutely willing to cause physical harm through a hex. No issue with that."
She would have been perfectly happy if the Supreme Court Justice died over all of this, because her side believes he is against the death of innocent babies still in the womb.
"His death, resignation or physical disfigurement" was "the main goal of the Kavanaugh hex, and the three hexes on President Donald Trump from Catland Books this summer, was to let them be exposed for who they are - especially as impotent men."
The forces who stand against God, and liberty, mocked the Bible in the process. The curse began with a recitation of the Biblical scripture Psalm 109:8: "let his days be few, let another take his office."
While the witch behind the hex claims witchcraft and Christianity are mutually exclusive, and that witchcraft "has a ton of roots in Christianity", she also said that witchcraft is an "intersectionality of feminism, sexuality, gender, the fight for freedom [not godly liberty, but do-as-you-want-because-there-is-no-right-or-wrong kind of false freedom], eschewing the patriarchy and having sort of a vitriolic response towards it."
The anti-God socialism that has been emerging, and creating chaos in America has reached even deeper into the heart of humanity on the world stage. But, one wonders if in the long-run the evil ones even have a leg to stand on. We saw recently the rejection of many of the left's policies with the yellow-vest protesters in France. Europeans, and some Americans, are beginning to realize that President Trump is right about Islam, Iran, and the lousy Iran deal. But the hard left still hates him, and supports anything that stands against them, because after eight years of Barack Obama, they thought that America's journey towards Sodom and Gammorah was nearly complete. Think about it. They are calling for moral decay. They are doing all they can to spit in God's eye. It's gotten so bad that we even have a cross-dressing transgender Miss Universe Pageant candidate who has declared, "Having a vagina does not make you a woman."
The election of Trump threw a monkey wrench into the whole thing.
It's not that Trump is necessarily an altar-boy. Hey, he was a billionaire playboy. As a Christian I am fully aware of who he is, but that doesn't make me not support him is truly exemplary. Yes, character can be an issue with politicians, but I think Trump's character beyond what the Democrats have been screaming about, and the growth he's experienced as a person over the last few years, out-ranks any of the things the Democrats keep digging up. Besides, the President realizes who the real domestic enemy is.
It has been because of Trump that the abuse of internal power by the Clintons is being exposed. It is because of Trump that the reality that the liberal left has been abusing their power through the FBI, and former FBI chief Comey lied about all of it, is coming to light. Trump is the one who has been pointing out the reality of dangerous individuals being mixed into the illegal alien hordes . . . to the point that even Mexico is starting to crack down on illegal immigration, and the reality of the danger is also being pointed out in California. The liberal left's abuse of social media is being exposed, and challenged legally, too.
In other words, Trump has tapped into something that no Republican has before. Trump, whether he knows it or not, has exposed the liberal left for who they really are. He has found a way to get them to lift the veil and help us realize that what we are in the middle of is not some kind of difference in political opinion when it comes to the liberal, progressive, commie left.
It's spiritual warfare.
