Without Religion You Can’t Hire Enough Police

There is a necessary self control among citizens of a democracy or Republic such as ours.  Professor Clay Christensen from Harvard enquired of a Chinese Fulbright scholar, who was a Marxist economist, studying in Boston in 2011.

When the scholar was asked if he had learned anything interesting or unexpected he said he had no idea how critical religion is to the functioning of democracy. The concept is in a democracy the citizens must be self governed.  They must basically submit to keeping the law voluntarily.

What is the factor that guides citizens to obey.  Personal morality based on religious principle.  Our Christian heritage is vital to the ongoing success of this nation.  Someone or something must compel citizens to voluntarily keep the law. Spiritual awakening is vital to a revived American government.

With this in mind the Chinese scholar concluded, “If you take away religion, you cannot hire enough police.”

WHO tells YOU what to DO!!

Destroying Our Democracy:

There continues to be this inflammatory declaration that most every action taken by those opposed to anything not coming from the political left is “destroying our democracy.”  This is, of course, very ominous sounding and something we want to avoid at all costs.

And yet the ones using this battle cry promote policy and actions that erode the foundational underpinnings of a free society.  Such as, the desire to set up a government monitoring system to decide what information is not misinformation and thus fit to be allowed on media or social media.

Now our own government is promoting abdication of our rights as a nation to sovereign control by allowing the World Health Organization (WHO) to tell us how we are to conduct our own public health policies.  This is simply another step toward a One World Governing organization and with that comes the automatic “Destruction of Our Democracy.”

Not only would we forfeit the freedom of individual rights, it would be given to governmental agencies outside of our nation, our democracy.  Thus destroying it! 

WHO would tell us what to do!!!

Government Disinformation Oversight Department

Marxist Ideology at Work

The news that the Biden Administration wants to have a governing body overseeing disinformation is a giant leap toward governmental oppression.  This means that the government decides what you get to see and hear.  They determine the correctness of the information.  It would be nice to know what are their determining factors for truth.

In the last few years we have been told by these establishment authorities that Trump was in collusion with Russia and there was overwhelming evidence.  The Mueller investigation which ate up resources and years of our time concluded there was no such proof, although we were told there was overwhelming proof. (Read Susan Rice’s testimony in the Mueller report for yourself.  She was National Security Adviser but claimed she had no proof of collusion, cooperation or conspiracy between Trump and Russia.  She claims her source of collusion was the press, “Steele Dossier”.)

Information was banned on the internet as disinformation that said you could get COvid if you had a vaccine or you could spread COvid if you had a vaccine. This has now been seen as a normal part of our world.

The Hunter Biden laptop information was discarded as Russian disinformation when the story first came out.

It seems “disinformation” has little to do with facts but rather if it contradicts the agenda of those wanting to govern the thinking of everyday Americans.

Governmental disinformation departments are not compatible with “free” societies but very compatible with totalitarian rulers.

Those that claim others are destroying our Democracy are proving once again they are doing just that.  While they use the strategy of accuse your opposition of doing the very thing that you are doing.  


Supreme Court Leak

Roe v Wade, Election Integrity, “Destroying Our Democracy”

The big news is Roe v Wade will likely be overturned according to a leaked draft of the majority opinion from the Supreme Court. Amazingly protestors were ready immediately and official statements were released including one by house and senate leaders decrying that this will be like tearing up our Constitution and destroying our democracy.

Sliding under the news agencies’ radar is the fact that a significant documentary, “2,000 Mules” was released the same day as the Supreme Court leak.  In this film is the documented process by which the filmmakers and “True the Vote” claim the election was fraudulently tampered with and the results severely affected.  

I suspect the timing of this leak was intentional!

Those crying out that overturning Roe is destroying our democracy are ignoring the evidence of the most egregious act in history to overthrow our democracy.  If you do not have election integrity you do not have a democracy or in our case a Republic because voting is the fundamental tool that incorporates “the rule of the people”.

The Roe decision will invoke violence in the street because the radical left is violent.  If we can’t destroy the unborn we will threaten the physical safety of people and businesses so we can intimidate through violence.

The very ones who scream consistently, “their destroying our democracy” , it’s simply a talking point, are bent on doing just that.  They want to use executive powers in times of crisis to control people not by law but by mandates, “Ruler’s Law”.  That takes rights away from the people and puts power  into the hands of the ruling class.

It’s simply Marxist/Socialist/Communist tactics put into motion. This group has said they want Socialism and have honored Marxists and Communists and it’s true.  They really do! 

They want to destroy our Democracy!!!

What is a woman? (part 2)

It seems we left the nomination of our new supreme court justice in a precarious place.  The goal of the present administration was to confirm the first Black Female Justice to the Supreme Court.   Since the candidate is unable to define woman, do we know if this candidate qualifies as the African American Justice that was desired?  

Should the Senators have asked if she was a woman?  If not, perhaps the goal of firsts could still be obtained by just having someone identify as an African American Woman who is already on the Court. That should be sufficient if truth is simply established by what one thinks!!


America’s Founder Were Slave Owners

America’s Founders were Slave Owners


The history of slavery goes back as far as recorded history.  America did not create slavery.  The founders of this nation inherited it as a human institution but found it inconsistent with their Christian beliefs and the principles in our Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.  Many of our founders, even those who owned slaves, were instrumental in the abolishment of slavery in this nation.

Some who even proposed legislation to make slavery illegal at the state level, owned slaves.  Thomas Jefferson in his wording of the Northwest Ordinance forbade slavery in any new state that would apply to admission to our union.

The laws, in some States, in the time of Jefferson did not allow you to just release slaves.  In fact, someone, like Jefferson, who had debts to pay, and released slaves, would have those slaves taken into custody by the government and sold to pay his debts.  So release of slaves in his case was illegal.

That did not stop Jefferson and others of that day from speaking against slavery and even starting anti-slavery associations.

Also, free blacks and native Americans owned slaves.  This land was not a Utopia before the Europeans arrived.  Native American tribes owned other native Americans as slaves.   In Central and South America perhaps the most barbaric and extensive human sacrifice in history took place among these native civilizations.  Towers of human skulls have been uncovered.  And human sacrifice was known to be a practice of appeasing the gods of those societies.  It was not uncommon to cut out the hearts of the victims. 

The first man to legally own a slave in the United States for life was actually another black man.  Anthony Johnson had come to America from Angola as an indentured servant.  He served his seven years and gained his freedom.  He was able to purchase property and bought a slave who was not very efficient.  When the slave, John Casor, tried to leave Johnson’s authority, Johnson filed a lawsuit and gained lifetime control of Casor from a judge.

I highly recommend the teachings by William Federer on the history of slavery.  There is a link at the end of this section.  Also, David and Tim Barton have done extensive historical research into slavery in America.  Their information can be found at wallbuilders.com.

It is simplistic and misleading to simply say our founders owned slaves and think you understand the circumstances and mindset of early America and its founders.  America within 90 years of its Declaration of Independence had made slavery illegal.  That was a major change in world history.

Slavery was horrible. There was inhumane treatment of many black people.  They were legally regarded as less than human and considered to be property.  But then, hundreds of thousands of mostly white men lost their lives in a war that finally brought an end to legal slavery in this country.  Since then changes have been made to change local laws regarding equal access rights to facilities, schools, jobs and many other things.  While racism still dwells in the hearts of people throughout America and the world, the system of government as contained in our laws does not condone or promote it.

That progress deserves recognition and celebration.  The Gospel of Jesus when lived out will then deal with conditions of the heart.  (See section of Equity or Equality).

Climate Change

 Climate Change


When I was in Elementary School we were being told that scientists said we were on the brink of another ice age.  In 1972 when I was in College scientists told us we would be rationing food and water by 1980.  I began taking one minute showers to save the planet.  (It didn’t last long,  both the shower and my commitment to save water.)  Then we came to the era of global warming.  It was conclusive! We’re losing the icecaps and they will be completely melted by 2013 or maybe 2014, etc. etc… Within the last couple years alarmists have declared the planet will be uninhabitable in 18 months or whatever, pick a time frame.

Predicting global weather trends has been tricky business with very little accuracy.   However, if no one really remembers what was said you can keep shouting the alarms with little or no accountability for truth.  I remember after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast that there were immediate predictions of increased numbers and intensity of Hurricanes.  Instead over the next few years there were nowhere near the number of hurricanes there were in 2005 which had set a record.

Predicting trends has made many people look foolish over the past century.  Global crises predictions are speculative.  An award winning environmentalist named Michael Shellenberger has re-examined his position on catastrophic prognostications in a book called “Apocalypse Never”.  I would suggest reading this at least to balance the wild hysterical predictions thrown out in the general public in order to induce major public policy changes and funding for certain environmental projects through fear.

Socialism Communism Marxism


Critical Race Theory finds its origins in Marxism.  While Marx stressed the difference between the workers and ruling class and created “class” warfare, CRT is currently promoting racial division as a means to promote their agenda.  Nonetheless, it is an expression of Marxist philosophy.  Leveling outcomes, what you possess, without consideration of effort.  So everyone gets the same thing.  Our founding Fathers considered inequality of possessions a sign of freedom because everyone having the same thing is not natural.  If everyone has the same possessions it means that some authority is making that happen thus you are not in a free society but are under oppression of government to insure results.  They saw this as tyranny. 

A society of people who freely work for themselves do not end up with everyone owning the same amount of everything.

The question then must be answered whether you are willing to have things taken away from you and given to someone else if you have more than them.  Everyone seems to like the idea of being given something so their standard of living rises, but that is not the long term result of Socialism/Marxism/Communism.

 A Christian response encourages generosity.  I Timothy 6:17,18, “Instruct those who are rich….to be generous and eager to share.”  In Socialism, resources are spread out and distributed not on the basis of merit, what you’ve earned, but on the basis of equity.  I visited Russia in 1997 and saw the lingering effects of Communism.  Everyone had about the same thing, virtually nothing.

Government is seen as God in these systems as it is responsible for providing everything for everyone.  Free education is offered when in reality it becomes free indoctrination to the controlling philosophy of oppressive government that these isms create.

Socialism and its related systems gain control through crisis or chaos.  When there is crisis or if crisis can be created, government sweeps in and offers an answer.  With the answer comes the sacrifice on the part of the people of freedoms/rights with the corresponding gain of control by those in power.  While these systems try to point out the inequities of society you are still left with a controlling class that is not subject to the oppressive restrictions on free enterprise and has the rights to dip their hands in the public funds to lavishly provide for themselves.

These systems result in the loss of motivation to work, a deeper separation of workers and ruling class, and the loss of free exchange of ideas, since only certain sources of information are allowed.  Dissent from these ideologies is restricted and punished.  And while a utopian society of well-being for everyone is promised resources dry up from lack of motivated free enterprise.

The idea of wealth redistribution (equity) was called leveling by our founding fathers.  They said it was not the government’s position to take wealth from someone and give it to another.  The care of the poor should be by the benevolence of individuals or the formation of charitable organizations.  The idea was to encourage charity but not forcibly take from one to give to another.  That sounds a bit like stealing!

Our Historical Roots

Our Historical Roots

History is to the nation what memory is to the individual.  –  Arthur Schlesinger

If we don’t know who we are, we don’t know how to act.  As a child in school my generation was taught regularly that the Pilgrims came here for religious freedom.  I heard Michele Bachman say something along the line, America was basically a Church plant.  Listed here are a few quotes from our Founding Fathers and early documents that give an understanding of the mindset of those who came to start what is now called the United States of America.

When discussing the guidelines which define the establishment of religion in the First Amendment to the Constitution, U.S. House Judiciary Committee made this statement in 1854,

  “Had the people, during the revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that revolution would have been strangled in its cradle… In this age, there can be no substitute for Christianity… That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.” – Congress U.S House Judiciary Committee, 1854


 “Having undertaken for the

 Glory of God, and the advancement of the

Christian faith…”

-Mayflower Compact (1612)




“In proportion as the genuine effects of Christianity are diminished in any nation… in the same proportion will the people of that nation recede from the blessings of genuine freedom… Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government – and all the blessings which flow from them – must fall with them.” – Jedidiah Morse (1761-1826), was a pioneer American educator and geographer, called the “Father of American Geography.” He was also the father of Samuel F.B. Morse, inventor of the telegraph and “Morse Code.” 

“The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity” – John Quincy Adams : American 6th US President (1825-29), eldest son of John Adams, 2nd US president. 1767- 1848

“The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” – John Quincy Adams : American 6th US President (1825-29), eldest son of John Adams, 2nd US president. 1767- 1848

“He called on the entire state to pray “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory.””  – John Hancock: Elected President of the Continental Congress, 1775;  

“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers” – John Jay: Author of the Federalist Papers; Original Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court

“[T]he only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible”. – Benjamin Rush: Signer of the Declaration of Independence; Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution 

“I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of Christianity have not a controlling influence” – Noah Webster: Judge; Legislator; Educator; Revolutionary Soldier

“No truth is more evident than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.” – Noah Webster: Judge; Legislator; Educator; Revolutionary Soldier 

“[T]he Christian religion – its general principles – must ever be regarded among us as the foundation of civil society” – Daniel Webster: U.S. Senator; Secretary of State  

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness – these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens” – George Washington: First President of the United States of America. General in the Revolutionary War 

“The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible” – Patrick Henry: Revolutionary General; Ratifier of the U. S. Constitution; Governor of Virginia

Equity or Equality Introduction

Equity or Equality

America’s Founding Fathers wrote that all men are created equal.  They were highly influenced in this by Deuteronomy 1:17 “You shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small and great…”.  The concept of equality was equal standing with or access to the law.  Everyone had equal rights before the law.  This Constitutional concept and the conscience of Christian leaders led to the abolishment of legal slavery in the United States.  Slavery had been a human institution for 4,000 plus years but became illegal in America within about 75 years of the ratification of the Constitution.  This was a major change in the history of humanity.

We are not responsible for what we are given as children.  As adults we are responsible for what we do with that information.  When I was a child I was told Martin Luther King, Jr. was a communist.  My friend Titus from Kenya was told if you see a white man, run because they will eat you.  Neither one of us could control what we were given as children but I later concluded that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a great civil rights leader and Titus found that he could partner with white people in America to help provide wells, churches and Bible teaching for thousands in his congregation in Kenya.

Early Americans inherited slavery.  It had been a part of humanity for thousands of years before they were born.  There was definitely abuse and inhumane practices that should have never happened.  But also, there were hundreds of thousands of mostly white men that died to make slavery illegal in America, within 90 years of its founding.  Did that end racism?  No.  It is present in every culture I have been in.  But it ended legal slavery and started a process of reconciling the problems that slavery created. 

Equality has been replaced in the modern dialogue with the term equity.  Equity implies equality of possessions and privilege without regard to merit.  It is one of the foundational premises of Marxism/Socialism/Communism.  This equity only applies to the general population not to the leaders.  The concept enables something to be taken away from someone who has earned it and given to someone who has less but has not earned or merited that possession.

We call this redistribution of wealth.  Our Founders called it “leveling” and said it was not the place of government to do this, believing it was a sign of tyranny or oppression for government to take away from one to give to another.  In its most basic form taking from one who has earned something and forcing that one to give it to another is theft.

Our Founders believed benevolence should be handled by individuals or by organizations formed to help others.  If done by Government, it was a sign of tyranny.  They encouraged generosity which is voluntarily giving to others who are in need.

In contrast to a Socialist society would be a meritocracy, where people are rewarded or promoted on the basis of merit (they worked for it).  People are encouraged to engage in work that earns a wage and merits promotion.
