Robert Charles Winthrop (1809–1894), an American philanthropist, congressman from Massachusetts, and one-time Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, stated “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong-arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.” We find ourselves in the state we are in because of the choices we made in the past. We chose to place our trust in the tyrannical arm of a central government rather than the strong-arm of a benevolent God.The only way back from total tyranny is total surrender to God. For blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Ps 33:12
