REALISM?

fatter_disasterConservatives on Fire is now Asylum Watch.

Originally this  blog, which was started on September 20, 2010, was dedicated to the American conservative movement’s efforts to lead the country back to its founders ideals and operated under the name Conservatives on Fire with the tag line: Defending Conservative Ideas for America.  After the devastating results of the 2012 elections, many conservative bloggers went silent and others began posting less frequently. This humble defender of American conservatism, however, continued to write posts encouraging conservatives to not give up hope. I even wrote a six part series on how we could take America back one bit at a time. By January 2013, I began to question my resolve. After two weeks of introspection, I came to the conclusion that I had ignored thousands of years of human history. I had been living in a state of delusion. I was in love with idea. The beautiful idea of America our founders gave to us. I did not want to believe that such a beautiful idea could be lost.  As I reflected on the history of  mankind, I realized that the people with power will always act to increase their power. And, those whose power is to govern are no different; not in America or anywhere in the world. (from here)

The last election left a great many depressed. Like the author at Asylum Watch, I too contemplated our lost with a mixture of sorrow and horror (FINDING PEACE IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE 2012 ELECTION — PART 5).  In retrospect, I should not have been surprised. I knew the United States cannot forever be a republic. I knew my country will not exist for eternity.

We may think ourselves mighty and important, but God did not bother to mention the United States in the Book of Revelation. Perhaps that is a good thing; I don’t know. I just know that with the election of Barack Obama the end of our republic no longer seems like a distant event in the future.

Should we give up? No. Jesus did not give us that luxury. We must fight for our republic. We must labor for the souls of our children, and we must spread the Gospel to our neighbors.

We must remember why the United States is unique. Ours is a nation founded in the belief that God rules. As our Declaration of Independence says:

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,… (from here)

We do not need government to educate us, feed us, provide us medical care, give us money in retirement, protect us from poverty… We do not need government to give us things.  We need government to protect our right to spread the Gospel of our savior, Christ Jesus.

Matthew 28:18-20 Good News Translation (GNT)

18 Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”

  1. No the Bible doesn’t mention the United States even in symbolism. (Though some have correlated the Eagle to the US). Could it be because we are supposed to be living by faith? I think so. Considering some nations that are called out by name, such as Egypt and Libya, I’m a bit grateful our demise isn’t cast in scripture. 🙂
