America is a battleground. The left is waging war against the very foundation of our country. If President Obama and his merry band of cohorts win, our nation will be permanently destroyed and our nation will be changed forever into a Fascist society.
The stakes in this battle are very high. It is matter of life or death. Or as I like to say, it is more important than that.
Very few folks get the real meaning behind this war that is being waged. The war goes deeper than the economic problem we are currently facing. It is not just about the government taking over the banking industry, the auto industry, or health care. The war being waged attacks the very core of our nation. It is an attempt to change this core.
It is spiritual battle that is skillfully being waged by the left. Obama and his minion’s want us think they are making this country a better place to live. However, when you look behind the surface and get to the heart of the matter, you will discover the true evil nature of their ways.
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the state run media want to kill our nations core. This core is based upon true freedom given to us from God, Jesus, and the Bible.
Our founding fathers knew and believed in God. Doctor Benjamin Rush was one of the original signers of The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He wrote these following words about God, the Bible, Jesus, and principles upon which our nation was founded.
“The Gospel of Jesus Christ prescribes the wisest rules for just conduct in every situation of life. Happy they who are enabled to obey them in all situations! . . . My only hope of salvation is in the infinite transcendent love of God manifested to the world by the death of His Son upon the Cross. Nothing but His blood will wash away my sins ” I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of inspiration, but I am as satisfied that it is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament.”
By renouncing the Bible, philosophers swing from their moorings upon all moral subjects… It is the only correct map of the human heart that ever has been published.”
“[T]he greatest discoveries in science have been made by Christian philosophers and . . . there is the most knowledge in those countries where there is the most Christianity.”
“[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.”
The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effective means of limiting Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible at schools.”
“[C]hristianity is the only true and perfect religion; and… in proportion as mankind adopt its principles and obey its precepts, they will be wise and happy.”
“The Bible contains more knowledge necessary to man in his present state than any other book in the world.”
“The Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life… [T]he Bible… should be read in our schools in preference to all other books because it contains the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and public happiness.”
Did you know these facts and writings of Doctor Benjamin Rush?
Doctor Benjamin Rush was abolitionist. He wrote a pamphlet demanding the abolishment of slavery that appeared in the Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. The pamphlet was called: ” An address to the Inhabitants of the British Settlements in America, upon Slave Keeping.”
He was one of the top surgeons and doctors in his time. He was a man of deep faith. He was a Christian.
Doctor Rush founded Dickinson College, in Carlisle, PA in 1783. He also taught medical theory and clinical practice at the University of Pennsylvania.
Doctor Rush became known as “The Father of American Psychiatry.” He wrote the first American textbook on Psychiatry. It was entitled, ” Medical Inquiries and Observations upon The Diseases of The Mind.”
Doctor Benjamin Rush was the champion of free public education. Doctor Rush became known as “The Father of Public Schools.”
Doctor Rush believed “Public Education” should include the study of the Bible.
The following quotes are taken from Doctor Rush’s works he wrote on March 28, 1787, and from his pamphlet he wrote in 1791, “A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a Schoolbook.”
“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty.”
“Let the children who are sent to those schools be taught to read and write – – – (and a)bove all, let both sexes be carefully instructed in the principles and obligations of the Christian religion. This is the most essential part of education – -”
” It will be necessary to connect all these (academic) branches of education with regular instruction in the Christian religion.”
“It is now several months since I promised to give you my reasons for preferring the Bible as a schoolbook to all other compositions. Before I state my arguments, I shall assume the five following propositions:I . That Christianity is the only true and perfect religion; and that in proportion as mankind adopts its principles and obeys its precepts they will be wise and happy.
2. That a better knowledge of this religion is to be acquired by reading the Bible than in any other way.
3. That the Bible contains more knowledge necessary to man in his present state than any other book in the world.
4. That knowledge is most durable, and religious instruction most useful, when imparted in early life.
5. That the Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life.”
Our very lives are at stake. If President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the state run media, and the intellectual elite succeed in winning this war and drive God out of our country we will have no one to blame but ourselves for this mess we are in.
If you think I am kidding please consider this one final thought. The British Army was the best in the world. They were well trained in the intricacies of war.
George Washington and his men was a rag tag army made up of farmers and merchants.
The Continental army didn’t know how to fight a war. Yet, this rag tag army defeated the greatest military power of its day Britain in a toe-to-toe slugfest.
If our founding fathers weren’t Christian do you think we would have won our independence?
Look at the facts and then decide.
