Truth...And Nothing But


A national treasure — dare I say a global treasure — is in danger of being overrun, lost and forgotten if we don’t rise up and take a stand for God, His people and this nation. That treasure is America, under God. For way too long, we have allowed the founding principles of our nation — God’s principles, instructions and wisdom — to suffer abuse, so-called correction and even abandonment.

Political correctness, diluted half-truths and blatant misrepresentations have infiltrated public reason and debate. Over the course of 75 years, common sense and praiseworthy traits of character have been beaten into shapes that no longer represent the essence of their former selves. Gone are the inspiring speeches of leaders past whose words proved they had spent time in the presence of God. Today, the essence of God’s message and our purpose as a people and nation of God has been nearly lost. We must begin now to give less attention to our political affiliations and zombie-like love affairs with leaders who have lost their way. We must reconsider the wisdom, teachings and lessons from days gone by to find our moral compass, to unite as one nation under God and fulfill our God-given destiny. Until those of us still possessing common sense find the nerve to call things as we see them, bad behavior by elected leaders will continue and eventually become acceptable behavior: chaos. We are not far from it. While no other nation in history has given more to the needy and the suffering, acts of compassion that are indeed attributes of God, we cannot afford to be boastful, satisfied or haughty. We must first seek to understand God’s will, then become of one accord in this understanding and work together toward fulfilling His purpose for all mankind, not just our nation. “Unless the Lord builds the house, those who labor to build it, do so in vain” (Psalms 127:1). America, as a world leader, must rise again in the strength of her people to lead with integrity, honor and righteousness. Does this sound impossibly hard and naïve? Perhaps. But not impossible, because, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). We Christians and God-fearing patriots who have had enough of the madness invoked by a corrupt and ineffective government — one that has either forgotten why God is critical to our success or one that is committed to methodically removing God from our schools, communities, society and daily life — must sound a call to action. We must call back the presence of God and the wisdom of His Word to rule once again in the hearts and minds of those with whom we have entrusted this nation. It’s time to replace those who wish to serve only the demands of their constituencies and those that benefit from favors. It’s time to call ‘em as we see ‘em — and then fix ‘em. We must call all zombies to order: Democrats, Republicans, independents, liberals and Unitarians. It’s time to put our petty differences aside and unite as one people, dedicated to saving this nation and all she stands for. Without the moral compass of solid biblical understanding and application, we as a nation have no chance of accomplishing our objectives. Many will oppose us, especially as some will be hurt in the short run. Many more will admire us. Given God’s favor and a collective effort of unwavering persistence, most will come to honor our courage. To those who know God to be love and how to identify His attributes, I call you to a higher standard. I urge you to humble and rededicate yourselves to more fervent and vigilant prayer on behalf of this nation and all nations of the world. Where are you, the mighty men and women of faith and character? Stand up and begin calling ‘em like you see ‘em. Let us hear your voices. [Like what your reading?
