Victory for American Liberty

Victory for American Liberty

The American Revolution was triumphant against overwhelming odds. Challenging the arrogance of the British, George Washington declared boldly: “We have a purpose, and we will defeat you.”

Note the courageous words of heroes, past and present.

This is the last day in which the great consummation of God’s purposes will be made, the only dispensation in which the Lord has promised that sin will not prevail. ~Ezra Taft Benson

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. ~Benjamin Franklin

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” ~Winston Churchill

You cannot submit to evil without allowing evil to grow. Each time the good are defeated, or each time they yield, they only cause the forces of evil to grow stronger. Greed feeds greed, and crime grows with success. Our giving up what is ours merely to escape trouble would only create greater trouble for someone else. ~Louis L’Amour

Victory for Liberty!

We must not settle for less.

In the Capitol, many of the men and women we elected to represent our cherished traditional values are rushing to jump aboard the government Titanic, which is fast sinking into the depths of corruption. A tsunami of moral depravity is engulfing society at large. Schools are pumping false and immoral doctrines into America’s children, subverting and even creating hostility toward Judeo-Christian values. Even some church leaders are advising everyone to pull back from the cultural war. In other words, just quit and don’t bother?

Centuries ago, during the American Revolutionary War, when, after an intense battle at sea, John Paul Jones was taunted with surrender, his famously courageous words of defiance were, “I have not yet begun to fight.”

Today, while many physical wars are raging, we are engaged in a massive Cultural War which we cannot ignore—at stake are our souls and the very survival of our families. It is the culture of life versus the culture of death.

How Did We Get to This Point?

judicialtyrannySome of us are old enough to remember the pivotal Supreme Court decisions that accelerated our national moral decline: the ban on prayer and the Bible in the schools, and the national decree allowing abortion on demand.

I always wondered how our society became swamped with evil in such a short time.

But it started years before that. In his book, The Marketing of Evil, David Kupelian shows us how America came to “buy into” immorality on such a large scale. The answer is that evil was and continues to be marketed. “Experts” packaged evil to look wonderful and enticing, and all that is good was made to look stupid and ridiculous. After decades of this intensive marketing, schools, media, science, and government have been powerfully affected. No corner of society has been exempted.

Part of evil’s marketing plan is to hammer everyone repeatedly and relentlessly with its agenda, as the gay extremists have done with their in-your-face attacks on those with traditional values. The current regime has aided in this steamrolling assault with crises, lies, and cover-ups, day after day after day, till we all suffer from an overdose of scandal-fatigue. John Paul Jones didn’t give up, and neither can we.

 

What Can Be Done?

“The only way we can keep our freedom is to work at it. Not some of us. All of us. Not some of the time, but all of the time.” Spencer W. Kimball

 Truth— Our Greatest Weapon

magnifying-glass-lightoftruthIf we have “not yet begun to fight,” we must begin without delay. Just be prepared to be in it for the long haul, for to lose the battle with the culture of death means the extinction of civilization. So we must have a strategy.

When faced with the avalanche of evil before us, it is tempting to throw our arms up in despair and cry, “what’s the use?” That’s exactly what the adversary wants us to do. Know this at the outset: Surrender is not a strategy—not even an acceptable tactic.

Let’s begin where we are. Even so, we cannot do it all at once. Think of concentrating the light of the sun through a magnifying glass. The light of truth is like the sun, and Truth is our greatest weapon. If we focus the energy of truth effectively, we can make a powerful impact.

 

Winning Strategy: Work for Moral Victory

reagan2resizeCourage and Moral Clarity

We need to study history to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past, but also to learn from the heroic successes, which were brought about by courage and moral clarity.

One such shining example is Ronald Reagan, who persevered with grace under pressure, while the media and academic elite in this country constantly reviled him. With his unshakable spirit and courage, he ignored the morally weak appeasers, and presided over the defeat of the communist tyranny that had enslaved large parts of the world.

 

Education

1. At Home

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them [the words of God] when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. ~Deuteronomy 6:7

And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children. ~Isaiah 54:13

family5prayingdinnerOur first responsibility is to our own families. The most effective way to protect them from the general evils in society is to teach them at home. There are vast resources available to homeschoolers now. Don’t wait till you are perfect at it before you begin. The good character you build in your children will compensate by far for any minor imperfections in your curriculum.

One thing we all can do is teach our families at the dinner table—just one dinner topic per day. You’ll be surprised at how well-informed and inspired you can become if you use this simple, low stress, manageable method.

Teach them of their heritage, because no one else will. Build their heritage of faith, for where the Spirit of God is, there is liberty. Building character education in the rising generation will prepare them for the inevitable leadership they face in the future—for good or evil.

Study the scriptures diligently, and pray for victory of righteousness. The prayers of the righteous spare the nation.

2. In Your State

Mark Levin has reminded us that Washington will never be fixed in Washington. So let us go to work in our states.

constitutionDon’t be discouraged. There are many, many good people in this beloved country, fighting with all their hearts for the future of their children and grandchildren. Find these people and vote for them, to represent you. Vote out the corrupt career politicians who are selling us out. If you know the truth, you will be able to discern those who have courage, moral clarity, and integrity, and those who are lying and covering up their evil deeds. Keep seeking truth, and you will not be deceived.

The Founders, in their genius, provided in the Constitution a way for us to push back against tyranny. That way is found in the States. Our power is limited against the federal government leviathan, but we can make a difference in our state.

Remember who our Real Leader Is

This is the last day in which the great consummation of God’s purposes will be made, the only dispensation in which the Lord has promised that sin will not prevail. ~Ezra Taft Benson

elisha2Most of all, we must never forget who our real leader is.

In history, the children of the God of Israel have often faced overwhelming odds, like Gideon’s 300 against the hosts of Syria, and David against Goliath. Jews and Christians on earth have always been a tiny minority. But remember how Elisha comforted the young man when confronted with the hosts of Syria. Elisha prayed that the young man’s eyes might be opened, and the Lord opened his eyes, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.  ‎

“Fear not,” Elisha said, “for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” (2Kings 6:15-17)

The current occupant of the White House, no matter who he is, can never be our real leader. The God of Israel will always be our Real Leader.
