Losing Our Culture

America was founded by religious Christians who believed the Bible and followed it in their daily lives. We have gradually reached the point where Christianity has no place in public discourse.

American culture is gradually being destroyed by left wing socialist ideas, and a foreign invasion that is working against everything that we hold dear.

America was founded by folk who were persecuted because of their religion. They founded the Plymouth Colony. The Mayflower left England on September 6 and arrived in America on November 9, 66 days.

To provide a guide for their government they wrote The Mayflower Compact, the first legal document in the United States. The document, signed by 41, left little question as to why they came.

IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia;

The Declaration of Independence, (1776), made it clear that our rights come from God alone.

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,

The Constitution (1787) built on that foundation. Here is the Preamble.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

As a part of that first Constitution, the first ten amendments were called The Bill of Rights (May 15, 1791). Here is the First Amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Horace Mann, who was born on May 4, 1796, is credited with being the father of the American Public Education system. Mann determined that the new school system ought to be free of all sectarian influences. So biblical teaching and morality were not part of the new public education system.

But, America is a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles. Justice Brewer said in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States (1892) This is a Christian Nation.

As America became more secular Roe v. Wade protected abortions on January 22, 1973.

 The Department of Education was established in October, 1979.

Planned Parenthood v. Casey built on Roe v. Wade, June 29, 1992.

 legalized homosexual conduct, June 26, 2003.In his dissent of that ruling, Justice Antonin Scalia angrily warned that if the court was willing to strike down sodomy laws, other state laws on moral choices could soon be lifted, among them gay marriage.

Just a few short years later Gay Marriage was accepted as normal by the court in Obergefell v. Hodges, June 26, 2015.

Next came Federal Support for Education and the control that came with it.

Since public education was doing poorly a study was conducted and the report (1983) was called A Nation At Risk A key provision of the study was this sobering statement.

If an unfriendly foreign power had attempted to impose on America the mediocre educational performance that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war.

Next came Goals 2000 (1994), under President Clinton. This was also supposed to improve public education, but there was little change in achievement.

No Child Left Behind (2002) under President George W. Bush, had high sounding goals, but spent a lot of money and saw no improvement in achievement.

Then Race to the Top (2012) which dedicated over $4 billion to improve education.

The Every Student Succeeds Act, signed into law Dec. 10, 2015, rolled back much of the federal government’s education policy and gave the states more leeway in calling the shots.

Critical Race Theory said “race is a social construct” and insisted there was much racism in our public schools. It was immediately attacked as racist and un-American. As a result our schools became even more secular. Although the theory is over forty years old it did not really come into its own until about 2020.

With the Court opinion in Obergefell (above) gays and gay marriage became accepted in society, especially in our schools. Then it was a short hop to transgender issues.

Transgender issues have been considered for at least a century, but only recently has it become an issue at our schools, with children being pressured to change their gender, and even with surgeries. Michael Dillon was the First Female to Male surgery in 1944, and Roberta Cowell was the First Male to Female surgery in 1951.

Over the years schools have gradually become more secular. School prayer was blocked in Engel v. Vitale (1962), and Bible reading was banned in Abington School District v. Schempp (1963).

Illegal immigration has always been a problem. Even when I was a young boy people talked about “wetbacks” who were Mexicans who had swam the Rio Grande. But under President Biden immigration has become a serious problem with over a million immigrants seized at the border. How many immigrants are presently in the United States? Many millions. And having so many means a change to our culture as few come here and expect to accept our American way of life. This is a serious disaster. Under Trump a border wall was begun and illegal immigrants were sent back across the border. Under President Biden none of that seems to matter.

The election of 2020 saw many sworn statements of election fraud. That has continued to the present time, and no one seems to be able to do anything about it. Officially we are told that the 2020, and 2022 elections were the most secure election in American history.”

Several hundred people gathered at the capitol of Michigan and delivered 7,000 Affidavits of Election Fraud.

Here is another claim. Election Fraud in Arizona.

Here is a database of Voter Fraud, state by state.

Now we have a president who has inflated our currency, spent billions on climate change, and supports vaccinations even for young children, who have little risk. He has also destroyed our energy sector and seems totally lost when it comes to the value and history of fossil fuels.

One doctor even insists that so-called vaccines are doing Unprecedented Harm to Americans.

Unless we can stop all this our culture will be forever changed.

IDOLATRY ALERT!

Idolatry is not so much about statues as it is statutes, such as what one swears to or promotes as the supreme law of the land when not biblical.

There can only be one supreme law: 1) The biblically seditious Constitution, per Article 6, or 2) Yahweh’s moral law, per the Bible.

To futilely attempt to meld the two (as in this article) is to be as double minded as were the Israelites with Elijah on Mt. Carmel: Why halt ye between two opinions? If We the People be God (a contemporary form of Baal), serve them. If Yahweh be God, serve Him!

For more regarding these two polar opposite forms of government, see Chapter 3 “The Preamble: We the People vs. Yahweh” of free online book “Bible Law vs, the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective” at https://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline/biblelaw-constitutionalism-pt3.html

Then Chapter 9 “Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land.”

False Prophet Alert! Taliban ted at it again.

Such lies! Taliban Ted at it again.
Tis true that the organic act of 1871 created the CORPORATION of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
Which is VERY different from the original 1776 Constitution that our Godly forefathers DIED FOR TO GIVE TO US.
This information is all over the internet and proves your lies. You need to repent. You’re just a false prophet, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Spawn of satan!
It’s the organic act of 1871 and the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 that hi-jacked our country and perverted our 1776 Constitution.
Our forefathers sacrificed more than you will ever imagine for the original, which was entirely based upon Biblical principles. They were neither “enlightenment” nor “mason” thinkers. None of them. True fact which is also easily recognized from THEIR ORIGINAL WRITINGS.

Totally unlike your sharia law garbage. Pathetic! No thanks!

How bout YOU find out how much you think you know about our Constitution.

Research the Organic Act of 1871 and the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.

Then stop posting your garbage.

“…On February 27, 2009, James Dobson conceded that we have lost the culture wars. This is the consequence of Christians having spent the last two centuries lopping at the rotten branches of our culture’s corrupt tree while watering and fertilizing its roots.

“We should lop away at the tree’s corrupt branches (infanticide, sodomy, the economy, etc.). However, until the root of these problems [the biblically seditious Constitution] is Biblically addressed, we will never shut down the infanticide mills, we will never defeat the sodomites, and we will never fix the economy. In short, we will never win the culture wars. This issue is more than important for anyone concerned about God, our nation, and the future of our posterity, it’s the cutting- edge issue of our day….”

Christians losing the culture war due to a bad teaching in the churches saying that Christians don’t belong in politics? We so do and need to engage in the Culture war arena! Help those brave Christian groups that do go into those Culture wars!
