America – Christian Heritage verses Immigration
Please use your imagination as we consider painting a verbal picture for your consideration. If you don’t think with an alert and open mind, you will miss the point.
Please imagine a desperate young man and destitute. You don’t give him some money to just help him along his way and to give him a chance at a new start, but you decide to do something far nobler than that.
You decide to take this young man into your house and give him everything needed for life. You give him a room, a place at your table, a job with a future, and then not only that, but you also give him all the responsibilities and privileges of the household.
Now at first he is very thankful and very grateful for all that you have done for him. He shows his appreciation for your care and mercy upon him. But then after a short period of time, he come to you and says, “Now that you have done all this for me, now that you have given me everything I could possibly want or need for a good and prosperous, happy and free life, I am now going to tell you exactly how you are going to run your household.”
Then he proceeds and at first says to you, “I have decided that I don’t like the furniture in your house. I don’t like the way that it is arranged and set up.” So he proceeds to rearrange the furniture in your home.
Then he says, “I don’t like this idea that you have a Bible in every room in the house, so I am going to remove these Bibles because you have to many and you don’t need them.” And he proceeds to remove all your Bibles, room after room. Then he says, “You know what, it will be acceptable to me, if you will keep just one Bible, hidden in the back of your closet or other room so that it is not in view and I don’t have to see it.”
Then he says, “I don’t like having prayer every day with the family. Not only that, but from now on, if you want to pray at all, you will have to pray in the very secret of your heart, without speaking a word publicly.”
And then he says, “Your open display of your faith and your God is offensive to me. You have to stop that and confine your faith to the very inner courts of your mind. Don’t speak publicly about your God, about your Christ. Don’t display the symbols of your faith, or preach your faith publicly or try to get others to know about your God or believe like you believe. In fact, if you try to say anything that is offensive to me, I will take you to court and I will silence you from speaking that way any further.”
But that’s not all. Then he says to you, “I know you brought me here from a desperate and destitute situation at one time, but that was yesterday. Today is a new day and you better change your ways.”
But that’s not all. Then he says to you, “I’m going to use the very freedom that you have given me so that I may brainwash your children into thinking according to my new ways and not according to your old ways. I will use my freedom to brainwash your children into believing that there are no absolute morals, there is no absolute right and wrong, even that Jesus is not God and the Ten Commandments are meaningless and man made.”
Yet that is not all. Then he says to you, “I know that I am only one in this large household, but you have had it your way for too long. It is time for you to throw away the narrow mindedness of your ways. It is time that you changed your ways. Never mind what you did for me in the past. This is a new day. Therefore, my ways, my ideas, my laws, my words, my philosophies, my rules, my morality and my world views will all dominate and influence the entire household. Furthermore, if you so much as open your mouth to object, I will publicly proclaim that you are a bigot, I will declare you as an extremist, I will say that you are intolerant and that you are narrow minded and that there is only one way to deal with the likes of people like you and that is to remove you from this society.”
If you agree that this would be a horrible nightmare, then I want to submit to you that this is a picture of <>America> today. Through the kindness and generosity of the Christian heart, <>America> opened it’s doors to desperate and destitute people from all over the world. Immigrants were allowed into this nation. <>America> welcomed those of any religion or no religion. <>America> opened its doors to the huddled masses. To those who yearned to breathe the air of freedom. <>America>, because of its Christian foundation of love and care for all, opened its arms, without discrimination to persecuted people all over the world, to offer them hope and a better life. But now, so many of those very same people, who were welcomed into this great land with open arms are telling us that in order to accommodate the new comers that we must destroy the founding principles of this nation and silence the majority in this nation and get rid of the founding fathers belief system in this nation. Impose a moratorium on the faith of the welcoming host and rewrite the historical fact of <>America> and stamp our all residue of the foundational faith and lock out and away all that hold to the faith of the founding fathers. We must lock them out of the judiciary appointments and the political system and government and out of the media and impound as bigots all those who subscribe to the founding fathers faith and ideas of this great nation.
We are imperious times like that household scenario that we described in the beginning. We are facing a nightmare in <>America>. But the saddest part, more than all of this, is that in the midst of this nightmare, most American Christians are asleep and don’t know or care what is happening to them.
A story told that when the so called unsinkable ship, the titanic was in serious trouble, the call went out, the mayday was broadcast. Nearby there was a large ship, the California that could have helped save more or all of these people. The distress signal went out by there was no response from that nearby ship that could have saved so many lives, why? The signal operator was in a deep sleep and didn’t hear the distress call. The vast majority of Christians in <>America> are in a deep sleep and are very happy to live the American dream and building their own nest egg. They are preoccupied with their own lives and pleasure, so much so that when the days come and it is coming soon, then they will wake up, but it will be too late.
Yet the truth is, not all those who have come to <>America> what to change it or see it changed in this way. Not all of the newcomers to <>America> are so ungrateful and feel they have the right to destroy our heritage and foundation as a Christian nation. Not all are wanting to rewrite American history or want to destroy the Biblical foundation of this nation, because what they want is an <>America> that was envisioned by the founding fathers, because that is what attracted them to <>America> to begin with.
They want an <>America> that fears God, whose foundation is the Word of God, an <>America> that would not condone the bloodshed of the innocent unborn, a nation of which George Washington said, “It is impossible to govern without God and the Bible.” An <>America> of which Abraham Lincoln said, “The only assurance of our nations safety is to lay our foundation in morality and Christianity.” An <>America> of which the founding fathers said, “When the importance of religion is diminished, so is the effectiveness of government.” We want an <>America> in which the Supreme Court of 1844 said, “The Bible and specially the New Testament should be read and taught as divine revelation in schools. Otherwise where can the present principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament.” That is the <>America> we want. We want an <>America> in which the Supreme Court of 1892 said, “The morality of the country is deeply regrafted upon Christianity and not upon doctrinal worship of other religions.” We want an <>America> in which Webster said, “The principles of all genuine liberty and wise law and administration are to be drawn from the Bible and sustained by its authority.” We want an <>America> of which Patrick Henry said, “The Bible is worth all other books that have been written.” That is the <>America> that so many coming to this country want to see. Not all of us want to see the destruction of the Christian foundation.
I know this is true for millions who did not come to <>America> to rewrite American history or to destroy its Godly heritage. Someone rightly said, “If a foreign nation had done to our schools what we have done, we would have considered it an act of war.”
Oh there is a glaring exception to this and that is Muslims. Today, Muslims are immigrating into not just <>America>, but all ‘free’ nations that do not have dictatorship. But, in ALL cases and in all nations to which they immigrate, they are NOT willing to assimilate or accept the cultures, ways or anything else of that nation who has been so kind to them and given them a change in life that they didn’t have in their own countries, freedom, education and many other things. Yet, they are not thankful nor grateful and instead come not to accept but to dominate, control and change the society and culture of their host nation.
They do not immigrate to a new country to adapt, make a new life and start again, make a living and be thankful to the nation that has accepted them and given them a chance for a better life than they had before. They come to be rulers and masters in their host nation and take over. It is a part of their religion. To see how this is affecting Europe today, read the article: The Rise of Islam in Europe.
So, what is the answer to this nightmare that we are facing today in <>America>? Anyone with any spiritual sensitivity has to agree that a nightmare is engulfing our nation right now. The answer is found in the pages of Scripture being rejected by so many of our political leaders today. Whenever God’s people found themselves in sin and under God’s judgment, they began by first repenting themselves. Yes, repenting! We have to begin by repentance. It is we Christians who have to lead the way out the abyss we are in, there is simply no other way for America to recover or keep from absolute destruction and becoming a society of the past, like the Roman Empire and so many in the Old Testament.
We must never expect <>America> to turn to God if God’s children are living like pagans. We as Christians have failed at being the salt and light that we were commanded to be in our societies and the world around us. Salt is used in order to keep food from rotting. That is why Jesus used that very figure of speech, that His disciples would be salt to a rotting world. That we would be the ones to restrain evil from taking over and destroying our society. But we have completely failed at being the moral conscience of our society. We have ceased to be loving goads to our lawmakers. Tragically, we have stayed in the salt shaker and not be applied to the wounds and rotting flesh of our society around us. Tragically, we have ignored our responsibilities as Christians and followers or Christ and gotten so preoccupied with living the good life and the things of this world, that we have allowed our society to rot to the core and we need to repent.
Listen, we must repent of our failure to be salt to this generation. We have been satisfied to be Sunday Morning in the church building Christians, with our cute contemporary sermons full of humanism, political correctness, compromise, lightness, prosperity, psychology and everything besides the truth of the Word. We have been satisfied with our contemporary music, contemporary sermons, contemporary clothes and all the rest and letting the world around us go to hell in a hand basket, rotten to the core.
We have to repent of not judging our personal sins. The very reason why we are unable to be salt is because we have become like the rotting meat.
Joel 2:12-13 “Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.” We must stop the superficiality of churchianity, of your pretense and falsehood, of your wearing a mask and pretending. <>America> will turn back to God, but only when God’s people follow the warnings of 2 Chronicles 7:14, only after they stop seeking after pleasure and prosperity and the things of this world and start seeking after righteousness and holiness. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” That is the only solution for America, but unfortunately the church will wake up too late and only after they are under God’s judgment for their sins of omission and commissions, their compromise and for worshipping their golden calf of prosperity or that of civil rights: that which kept them from standing for the truth and voting against those who supported abortion and homosexuality and those who hated our Christian heritage and our Constitution and wanted to change it to suit their evil desires and lusts… including the Clinton’s Kennedy’s, Kerry’s and other liberal icons of our government who support and stand with all those who love death and hate God’s idea of marriage.
