While making his 50 state Decision America Tour Franklin Graham spoke about the need for God back in the American political process. He found fault with both political parties and called upon Christians to pray for their nation and to repent of their and the nation’s sins.

Leading evangelist Franklin Graham speaks at a Decision American prayer rally held in Columbia, South Carolina on Feb. 9, 2016.


I agree with Mr. Graham that America has tossed God out with their progressive humanist secularism, but I can not lay the fault at the feet of the politicians the voting public chose. The focus of my concern is with the dereliction of duty of the Christian church, and the Christian home.

Persecuted Christians left their homelands and traveled across a dangerous sea to find a place where they could worship God freely and without government persecution. The pilgrims set up a colony in Massachusetts that had a lasting effect on the new nation being born. In fact, the Mayflower Compact was instrumental in the Constitution.

These brave men and women were not bashful about their devotion and service to God. They made sure that honor was given to God in their community. Parents taught their children the scriptures and made sure that they understood the importance of worshipping God in their lives and in their community.

Generations passed and parents stopped teaching their children the importance of faith in God and his place in society and instead shipped them off to government-run institutions where our children learned secular humanism and that God did not belong in the public square.

In the churches throughout the land, a place that once held significance in the local community, and was instrumental in public discourse on all things of societal life, pulpits were being filled with teachers who taught that a Christian’s citizenship was not of this world so they were not to bother themselves with the dirt and grime of politics and civics in general. Evangelicals were told to stay out of politics since it was worldly and corrupt. This left a void which was gladly filled by those who did not hold to Christian values and as such led our government down into the depths of humanism and away from God. The church said and did nothing for decades.

Now we find ourselves where we are today, adrift on the sea of worldliness driven by the winds of tyranny and debauchery. What do we find church leaders and evangelicals doing while the ship of state flounders in turbulent waters? They are supporting a secularist for the highest office in the land.

America needs a revival of spiritual fervor, a new Pentecost which will cause the body of Christ to burn with the spiritual passion once held by the pilgrims. A righteous indignation that will cause the people of God to fall on their faces and cry out to a merciful God to forgive them for their indifference and failures to pray for their leaders. America you have sinned, we have sinned against God and brought this hell down upon ourselves, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Do we really want America back? Back to the foundations laid by the Pilgrims? Do we really wish to see one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all? Then we MUST put God back where he belongs front and center in our lives and in our communities, and yes in our government. We as a nation need to vote for God in this election and those that are to follow.

And that is the way I see it. What say you?

I found this video a bit disturbing but not at all surprising. This is an example of why I am not an avid supporter of higher education. For the most part I feel our educational system has turned into an indoctrination service to enlist members in the atheist or secularist religions. To think that people actually pay big money to these institutes with hopes of obtaining a valuable education.

26 For [simply] consider your own call, brethren; not many [of you were considered to be] wise according to human estimates and standards, not many influential and powerful, not many of high and noble birth. 27 [No] for God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame. 28 And God also selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is lowborn and insignificant and branded and treated with contempt, even the things that are nothing, that He might depose and bring to nothing the things that are, 29 So that no mortal man should [have pretense for glorying and] boast in the presence of God.

I would rather be uneducated according to Augusta State then to be re-educated into disavowing my faith in God.
