Will You Pray with Me?

We live in world that is losing sight of our Savior. Powerful governments like that of Communist China directly oppose the spread of the Gospel. Our own government runs secularized schools and teaches multiculturalism, which says that all faiths are equally valid and true. By implication, that means that no faith is valid and true. Our mass media is mostly godless. Our great corporations think only of profits.

So, what should we do? We can begin with prayer.

Seeking Divine Perspective

Remember those who are in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. – Hebrews 13:3

My friend Mandy, the “Blue Collar Theologian,” posted recently about the Church in the West and our need for awareness and courage. She said, among other things, “It is heavy on my heart how often the persecuted church is missing in our prayers.”

Where I live, in middle class America, suffering for the gospel is not an everyday occurrence for most believers. It’s easy to limit our prayers to the health of our children, “traveling mercies” for loved ones on the road, and for Sunday’s service to go well. Of course, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with praying these things. I happen to believe there’s nothing too big or too small to talk to the Lord about. If it’s important to us, it’s…

Civics, The Lost Knowledge

Here is an interesting blog post that provides some informative links. I think the following observations need to be added, however.

1. The Declaration of Independence is our nation’s founding document. This document explains why it necessary for to have a government. Unless we read The Declaration of Independence and documents like The Federalist Papers, we cannot understand the Constitution as well as we need to understand it. We won’t understand the purpose the Constitution is supposed to serve. The Preamble does not come close to providing an adequate explanation. The Preamble was not supposed to do that.

2. We need to examine why we are failing to provide our children an adequate civics education. The answer, I think, is that we expected government-run schools to educate our children, and education is a task for which the government is ill suited. What is the problem? Whenever we delegate the task of education to the government, we give those with an axe to grind the opportunity to foist their beliefs upon other people using other people’s money. Hence, we should only allow the government to educate people when government is the only practical alternative. For example, when we need trained soldiers, we need to let our military services do their job and keep extraneous ideologies, CRT and the transgender nonsense out of it.

3. Who should be providing instruction in civics? That is something for free enterprise to resolve. That is, the real issue is who decides who teaches our children. Currently, politicians largely decide who teach our children in K – 12, and they also provide much of the funding for our colleges and universities. Unfortunately, we have allowed our political leaders to foul up our education system with political strife. We are not supposed to use our government to force our beliefs upon each other, but that is what happens when we put our government in charge of our education system. Therefore, we need to put parents need to be put back in charge. WE NEED SCHOOL CHOICE!

4. Are you a parent? If you want your children to grow up to be good citizens, then you need to take charge of both their religious education and their civics education. Does that sound like an odd juxtaposition? What does religious education have to do with civics? Well, look at the Bible. The Bible is the story of how Jesus redeemed us, but much of that involves the story of how Israel governed itself. Even the New Testament involves government. Jesus, for example, was executed by soldiers, not a mob. Jesus is our King. If we wish to be good citizens in His Kingdom, then we must learn how we are supposed to relate to each other and to Him.

Jesus is God. The Great Commandment calls upon us to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. God is our King.

Our neighbors are not God, but God commands us to love our neighbors as we love our self. Like our self, our neighbors belong to God, and He is their master. Therefore, we need a government to protect each other from each other, and that is what our Constitution was designed to do.

In Saner Thought

In the last few decades the American people have lost the knowledge of civics….and our elections and government illustrates what happens when this knowledge is lost.

I say this because of this type of report….

A recent survey found America may need to go back to civics class.

Annenberg Public Policy Center’s Civics Knowledge Survey found only 2 in 5 American adults – or 39 percent – could correctly name the three branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial. That figure was the highest in five years, up from 32 percent last year.

One in five adults couldn’t name any branch, the study showed.

“A quarter of U.S. adults can name only one of the three branches of government and more than a fifth can’t name any. The resilience of our system of government is best protected by an informed citizenry. And civics education and attention to news increase that…

Governor Calls for Investigation of Prestigious Hospital After Conservative Commentator’s Exposé of Pediatric Transgender Clinic

I have been hearing about the Pediatric Transgender Clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashvilleon the radio. Even so, the video remained a shocker. What the people running Vanderbilt University Medical Center are doing is child abuse, and they are doing it for money.

Furthermore, the damage done by the people running Vanderbilt University Medical Center and other such unethical institutions extends well beyond the harm they are doing to confused children.
– They are raising the cost of health care by using the government to force insurance institutions to cover the cost of their child abuse. There is no need to cover cosmetic surgery with insurance.
– They are trying corrupt that part of the medical staff at Vanderbilt University Medical Center that wants nothing to do with child abuse.
– They are undermining the public’s trust in the medical establishment. When doctors at what should be a respected institution are so obviously just in it for the money, why would anyone trust doctors? Who in his right mind would trust people who abuse children to provide medical care for themselves or their family?
