History tells us that hostility towards God and the Bible equals dictatorships governing the people. Embracing biblical influence throughout society's institutions and in the public square gains freedom and sustains it.
Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) says it this way:
“I have commenced with this idea, because I think worldly men ought to be told that if religion does not save them, yet it has done much for them—that the influence of religion has won them their liberties.” — Spurgeon
This Bible-revering influence caused colonists to reject imperialism and colonialism, and abolish legalized worldwide, millenniums-long slavery.
The exceptionalism of a nation has to be explained, but is "diversity" among the possibilities? History tells us that diversity in culture/worldview and in language within a community is NOT a strength anywhere in the world, but the Reformation and the First Great Awakening was the strength behind freedom and progress.
This particular diversity (language and culture within a community) is advocated for in our institutions as if it were a vetted proposition. The Washington Post acknowledges that this diversity is cause for conflict anywhere on the globe. Yet, the Biden Administration contributes to the delusion anyway, by repeating the falsehood and prohibiting the use of the word "assimilation."
What should be considered a phenomenon is that diversity of a magnitude, arguably, never seen in history turned into a brotherly bond and was united during the First Great Awakening, with our country being born out of it. That diverse, but united experience was described by Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) this way:
“It was wonderful to see the change soon made in the manners of our inhabitants; from being thoughtless or indifferent about religion, it seems as if all the world were growing religious; so that one could not walk thro’ the town in an evening without hearing psalms sung in different families on every street.”
Immigrants from many parts of the world were assimilating to a Christian culture and the English language. It was not perfect, but it did replace an earthly king with King Jesus and went a long way to establish self-governance, security, justice, and contentment. These are the blessings that are put further out of reach as the falsehoods of today are perpetuated, and outrage towards undeniable realities of life becomes a reflex.
I'm happy to report that what is shared here is not coming from opinions that are so coveted, today, nor is it from a moralist soap box. Rather, history and observation are the messenger, and that messenger has been killed a thousand times over in our education system.
There is a proven formula from history that gives us useful solutions for today, but for far too many, the answer is more troublesome than the problem needing solved.
John Adams was not so bashful on this point when he wrote:
"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God. . . What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
The American way of life is maintained on a voluntary basis. It is up to each one of us to make it work for a reasonable and good existence.
As “progress” takes a detour and America slips further into its demise, it becomes imperative that you gain the knowledge and confidence to do something about it.
Author Michael Pojar takes a stand with his extremely thought-provoking examination of American life. He reveals education’s religion-free lens of history and its consequence on a free society.
Pojar directly challenges readers to simplify the common thread between biblical theology and freedom, to take an interest to refine their conduct, and form a personal campaign to patiently teach America’s First Worldview.
This book invites you to gain the knowledge and confidence it takes to do your part, and to find peace of mind.
