It took someone who dabbled in witchcraft, an unlikely favorite daughter of Delaware, to remind us that while everyone is thinking and saying that we need to take back America, we are America! Christine O'Donnell told us that and it rang true for me. It rang loud and clear, true for me.
While my hometown newsrags, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette and the Fort Wayne News Sentinel continues their heinous diatribe of all things liberal and progressive, day in and day out, it had me wondering if the truth was every going to be able to shine through to my fellow citizens here in Indiana. Last election, Indiana turned into a blue state. I was crushed....not because Indiana voted in the majority for a black man because I would love to have been part of the history that would bring the presidency to a person of color. If there had been a decent person of color running for president, I would have been part of that history. Trouble is in Indiana, particularly in the cities, people are getting fed a steady stream of liberal garbage, are content and set in their ways, and fail to venture beyond the main stream media to get an idea about what is really going on in the country and the world.
Even today, I have a number of acquaintances who biggest goal in life is to improve their golf handicap. Many believe that tolerance about everything, not making waves, is the way to 'love thy neighbor'. In my own family, I have a sister who had a son, my namesake and nephew, Michael, who died of HIV/Aids which he acquired as an active homosexual man. Just today, after we exchanged e-mails regarding that froot loop Bill Maher, who she thinks is funny, whom I know to be a gay man with a hateful personality, and I said so....she commented, Oh so you think Michael is in hell.
If Michael gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ, repented of his sins before he died then I believe he is with Jesus Christ today and I told her this. And maybe Michael did this...I don't know, we did not live near each other. But this is the way we are....maybe your sister is a lesbian or your girlfriend has had abortions, because we love those people, we do not regard the truth of God's word but rather take the side of these sinners. This we do to our detriment. There are scriptural/biblical truths. God is known as the Alpha and the Omega, the one who sees the beginning from the end and vice versa and He has absolutely no reason to change His mind nor His word which are provided by the 66 books of our bible. These books and their authors were inspired by God's Holy Spirit to write the words therein...these words will not change and God's word will never return void. Of everyone anywhere, God is the only entity who says what He means and means what He says, all the time.
Today I tell you that I agree with Christine O'Donnell that WE ARE AMERICA! Our danger is found in the words even our founders have provided for us to consider. John Adams tells us that "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Benjamin Franklin adds "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters".
Daniel Webster speaks quite frankly on the subject when he tells us "....I am committed against every thing which in my judgment, may weaken, endanger, or destroy (the constitution)....and especially against all extension of Executive power; and I am committed against any attempt to rule the free people of this country by the power and the patronage of the government itself....".
We are at that crossroads America. In just 6 weeks from now we will vote and we must vote in numbers and we must vote with diligence and be vigilant to all the shenanigans of those who will certainly not play by the rules of our free society. If we are not diligent and vigilant then heaven help us as Samuel Adams puts it: "The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. While, on the other hand, 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."
Abject slaves....this is what President Obama has in mind for us as he continues his drive to destroy our Constitution, our Republic, our way of life and our livlihoods. Do not be fooled by Obama finally stepping foot in some church this past weekend....his advisors have told him that political symbolism is necessary now more than ever. See instead, the fruit that he bears, and of course, you will know what kind of tree he truly is.
We are a nation of sinners and yet we all know that while we are in that condition that Christ laid down his life for each of us. People can turn from their sin and repent and a nation can do likewise. I particularly wish to call on my fellow Christians (captial "C" Christians), not those in name only, to take God at his word as found in II Chronicles 7:14..."If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." Like I said, God's word does not return void.
Finally, regarding Christine O'Donnell, and I admittedly stole this from Glenn Beck when he asked is she a good witch or a bad witch fully aware that Chris Coons, her opponent is an avowed Marxist and there are only bad Marxists....no good ones. I intend to pray for her to find the light that is Jesus Christ and know that there is meaning in likeminded people doing the same thing. I would pray for her as quickly as I would pray for that generation alive today who seems to worship all things having to do with 'vampires' and other forms of Satanic worship as well.
WE THE PEOPLE, us Tea Party folks, are now supposed to be on the defensive from the Obama administration....I say, bring it on Prez....truth is on our side. I read the back of the book and I know how this is going to end....we win!
