Do You Want a Wide Ride?

Follow God’s Directions and See Where He Takes You


The words from the song All the Earth by the Parachute Band keep playing over and over in my head, ” Lord, I will Glorify and Bless Your holy name.”

I don’t know why these words are singing in my head but they are. I think God put them there for specific reason. Why? I don’t really know.

This one thought has been kicking around in my mind since last Saturday. I have been asking myself as well a dear friend of mine Father George what is so bad about getting to the top of the mountain.

Last Saturday I went to a men’s seminar at The Church On The Way. The guest keynote speaker was former UCLA basketball great and former NBA player and broadcaster Keith Erickson. One of his comments hit me like a ton of bricks. Erickson told us he has been to the top of the mountain and there is nothing there. He later went on to explain how author Ernest Hemingway committed suicide by blowing his brains out.

Erickson seems to think that there is really nothing at the top of the mountain. I beg to differ with him. If you walk up the mountain with God, there are kinds of wonderful treasures you can share with the rest of the world. However, if you go up the mountain without God you just might find a living hell.

One truth I have learned in my 57 years living on this good old earth is that you can’t give away something you haven’t got.

When I look at people, I see folks who can achieve whatever their dreams are if they are willing to work for their dreams to come true. The possibilities are endless for anyone who lives in The USA. We are born in the greatest nation on earth. God has blessed The USA with an abundant wealth and freedom. Our founding fathers were all Christians. They read the Bible daily. They all accepted Jesus as the personal saviour and this directly resulted in The United States of America to have abundant blessings from God.

What does this have to do with the price of tea in China? Everything. This is the set up for us to take a look at Ernest Hemingway and his suicide.

Hemingway made it to the top of the writing mountain. He was a world famous writer but he was also an alcoholic. But the alcoholic part is exactly the key truth to the story of Ernest Hemingway that Keith Erickson left out.
Ernest Hemingway was an alcoholic. I don’t know if Hemingway went to AA meetings or not. AA meetings were certainly available if he wanted to go.

I will bet you dollars to holes in a donut that booze had a big factor if not the primary factor that led to Hemingway taking a shotgun and blowing his brains out. This is just an educated guess based on my experience.

According to the book Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age, Bill Wilson and Doctor Bob Smith in Akron Ohio founded the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous on June 10th, 1935. From these humble beginnings AA has flourished. AA is just about in very corner of the world. However, this is not the point of this story. The point is that God brought these two men of divergent backgrounds together to help them, form one of the greatest tools that helped drunks get sober and cured of Alcoholism. Yes, I said cured.

The real roots of Alcoholic Anonymous are based on Biblical principles. According AA historian Dick B these roots can be traced to the God of the Bible and his Son Jesus Christ who was crucified so that man would have eternal life if he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as his saviour. This simple yet effective truth help Bill Wilson and Doctor Bob form the Akron group and help many men to get and stay sober. Doctor Bob and Bill Wilson found that studying The Book of James, 1st Corinthians 13, The Sermon on the Mount specifically Mathew 5, 6, 7, daily reading and studying of the Bible, and MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL acceptance of Jesus Christ as your personal saviour was the only true way for a drunk to achieve permanent sobriety.

In the early days of AA that began in Akron, Ohio, Doctor Bob and Bill Wilson found that these simple yet effective spiritual tools helped the first forty men that Doctor Bob and Bill Wilson shared the Christian message of AA with achieved continuous sobriety.

This miracle happened in little out of the way place named Akron, Ohio. So, what does this have to with climbing the top of the mountain and Ernest Hemmingway blowing out his brains with a shotgun I will show you in a very simple yet effective way.

Moses was chosen by God to lead the Jewish people out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. God chose Moses to meet with him on Mount Sinai and God gave Moses The Ten Commandments. Exodus 19:20 The New King James

Version states, ” Then the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain. And the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.”

When Moses went at the top of mountain to meet with God Moses was given The Ten Commandments. These were instructions on how to live from God.

God first revealed himself to Moses in the desert as a burning bush. Later on in Exodus God had numerous conversations with Moses on the top of Mount Sinai and God told Moses exactly what He wanted him to do. In Exodus 19:3, New International Translation, “Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called him from the mountain and said, “This is what you are to say to the house of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel.”

In Exodus 20:1, New International Translation Moses once again was summoned to the mountaintop. “And God spoke these words.”

Exodus 20:2, New International Translation, ” I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.”

All I am sharing with you is that when God calls you to go to the top of mountain it is in your best interest to go. However, if you try and climb the mountain without God in your life it will be a long hard disastrous trip. You might even loose your life like Hemingway did.

I know this from my own personal experience what it is like to disobey God. And I have suffered the consequences of those actions. This total disobedience on my part cost me my literal life.

Yet, God loved me enough to bring me back to life and show me his total love and mercy. God forgave me and He restored my life after I literally died on the operating table on May 2nd, 1972 when I was twenty-years at Sunbury Community Hospital.

The state run media is now proclaiming Obama as the big winner in the case for the prize to see how much crap can be rammed through before the Christmas break. The liberal Congress threw everything but the kitchen sink against the wall in the final siege before the new House session begins next year.

From MSNBC to Fox proclaimed Obama the winner. Upon further review, you will find that the Bush tax plan was almost kept in tack by the Libs.

How many times have Obama and his cohorts screamed that the Bush Tax cuts were the cause for all of our problems yet when push comes to shove the only thing that changed was the level of spending.

I don’t care how many ways you cut it to Sunday if spending isn’t cut guess what you still have problems.

Anyone with a lick of sense knows that when money is low you cut spending.


No shit Sherlock but the Dems subscribe to the idea spend other peoples money until there is no more then print up more bucks to spend.

This idea is killing us.

Try Econ 101.

Private sector creates wealth.

Government redistributes wealth.

It is as simple as that.

Gays in the military is the straw dog argument.

This is the first step to make the Gay lifestyle legitimate.

The Bible is very clear about homosexuality.

I know the Bible is old fashioned.

It is out of date.

The Bible and God’s laws are dumb and stupid.

Yet, when a nation disobeys God’s laws and principles that nation is doomed.

A quick trip in the way back machine- Rome, Greece, The Turks, and everyone who disrespected God’s laws are a footnote in history.

Is the United States next?

If we continue down this path, we will be.

Read the Bible.

My people the Jews disobeyed God’s laws and directions and we were scattered across the face of the earth. We didn’t return home until 1948.

The acceptance of Gay’s in the military is the first in the normalization of the Gay lifestyle.

Trust me.

The war on God’s word is now in full swing.

Let’s leap forward to the end.

God’s people win.

Anyone who stands up to this will be branded a homophobic bigot.

This will be the MO.

Have a blessed and Happy New Year.

More to come so stay tuned.

Listen God Wants to Talk to You

The Person You Are Sitting Next to Might Be a Prophet or God’s Angel


 Life blows my mind. Just when you have it all figured out God throws a monkey wrench in your plans and you wind up shaking your head saying, ” Okay God, what do you want me to do this time?

Throughout my life, God has revealed his plans for my life very slowly. Sometimes it’s very easy to follow God’s path while other times it’s like pulling teeth. Many times God has to take me kicking and screaming down the path He wants me to go.

God always places people in my life that He wants me to learn from. You see that’s the scary part. When that happens I think, ” Man, I’m supposed to learn from him or her? You gotta be kidding me?”

God laughs and tells me, “Yep, that’s exactly who I want you to learn from.” That’s exactly what happened to me six months ago.

To give you a little bit of history, my wife and I are members of The Church On The Way, in Van Nuys, California. We have been attending there for three years now. Yeah, I know what you are thinking; here we go with the Holy Roller stuff. Not. Please just bear with me for a few moments and you will see the nature of how God works in our lives if we listen and read the signposts that our Creator places in our path.

Every Sunday morning at 9 am, we worship at The Church On The Way. We sit in the middle section third row aisle seats right in front of the Pulpit. This is where we met Allen and Roxie. They are in their late seventies to early eighties. Their faces are warm, friendly, and full of life. Allen and Roxie have this glow about them. It’s more than a glow. I’m not too sure how to describe their look. Allen and Roxie have real peace and contentment. They are always smiling and nothing seems to bother them.

We have prayed together with them for well over six-months. We have had numerous conversations before and after church services at The Church On The Way. Over the past six months, we have slowly gotten to know Allen and Roxie.

In late September or maybe it was early October 2008, Allen and Roxie told us how they lost their home in the vicious San Fernando Valley fire that ripped through our community.

Allen and Roxie spoke of how the fire destroyed their home. They lost everything. Their entire physical possessions were gone in a puff of smoke. Sure, Allen and Roxie were a little bit sad and Allen and Roxie spoke of how the fire destroyed their home. They lost everything. Their entire physical possessions were gone in a puff of smoke. Sure, Allen and Roxie were a little bit sad and unhappy. But wouldn’t be. Instead, what I saw was a true happiness, peace, and love for the Lord.

They were at total peace with the entire incident.

For me this was very strange. I would have been screaming at God, ” What have you done to me? Why do you hate me?” Yet, they kept singing the praises of God.

How could this be? Yeah, I’m a Jesus believing Jew. I have seen first hand anti Semitism and all of that. When I was a teenager, my folks moved to Atlanta, Georgia. We lived there from 1967-69. In those days, the former grand wizard of The KKK, Lester Maddox was the governor of Georgia. Me being a Jew from New Jersey I stood out like a sore thumb. I had a big target on my back. You get the picture. Enough said.

Just before Christmas 2008, Allen and Roxie left a message on our voice mail. We returned the call and I left a message on their voice mail. The voice mail said, “This is the Tolle house.” Oh, that’s cool, I thought.

I didn’t know that Allen and Roxie are the parents of Senior Pastor Jim Tolle at The Church On The Way until they returned my phone call and told me who they were that December night.

All I saw were folks that my wife and I were comfortable talking to. I liked praying with them. I had inkling that Allen and Roxie were special people but I figured these people are really cool people to pray with and talk to so I didn’t pay much attention and I just left it at that. I am a very simple person at heart. I take people at face value and let them be themselves.

You probably won’t recognize the names Allen and Roxie Tolle but these folks were big time missionaries. They have traveled throughout the United States and to Central America to spread the word and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Two Bible passages jump out at me. Jesus told Peter in Mathew 16:18, The New International Translation, ” And I tell you Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”

Colossians 1:23, God’s Word Translation, ” This is on the condition that you continue in faith without being moved from the solid foundation of the hope that the Good News contains. You’ve heard this Good News of which I Paul become your servant throughout all creation under heaven.”

Pastor Allen and his wife Roxie Tolle put their lives on the line to serve God. They spend six years as missionaries in Managua, Nicaragua from 1954 to 1960, according to The Four Square Church Mission website.

When the Tolle’s arrived in Managua in 1954, opposing forces had influenced the government to let the unbelievers harass those who had been converted. This information I paraphrased from The Foursquare website.

I learned from The Foursquare Website, prior to the Tolle’s arrival in Managua there had been a large revival and over ten thousand had been converted to Christianity but due to a lack of missionary follow up many had slipped away.

In 1955, Allen and his wife Roxie founded The Foursquare Church in Managua. The Tolle’s did the Lord’s work in Managua, Nicaragua until Allen got sick in 1960 and had to leave.

To this day, the church in Nicaragua is still going strong and it has over five thousand members.

Today both of Allen’s sons serve the Lord as pastors. Jim Tolle is the Senior Pastor at The Church On The Way. John Tolle is the Senior Pastor at The Light House Christian Fellowship in Newberry Park, California.

What is to be learned from this long-winded story? The person that you are sitting next to in church can teach you many lessons. Who knows you might be sitting next to God’s prophet. God will work His miracles in our lives if we let him.

God’s power and grace are truly amazing.

God’s Choices Are Astounding

Moses and David Were Two of the Greatest Heroes of the Bible


I have always wondered how God goes about choosing the people he does to do his work. God’s choices on the surface do not make much sense. When you examine the choices, you will end up scratching your head in amazement.

Lets look at Moses and David, these two Biblical heroes were in modern terms life’s losers. They were not the strongest nor were Moses and David the smartest. They were the wrong choices. Moses and David had many character defects yet God chose Moses and David to become the fathers of Judaism.

For the life of me, I cannot figure out why God chose those two men to be the leaders of the Jewish people. Moses was a hot head. He killed a man in a fit of anger. Moses was a stutter. He couldn’t talk right. He saw weird stuff like burning bushes that didn’t burn in the Egyptian desert.

David was a shepherd boy. His own father didn’t want anything to do with him. David was weird. He was one of those artist types. David wrote poetry. He was a musician. David hung out with sheep all day. David was an adulterer. David murdered a man.

You have to be kidding me. God chose Moses to lead the Jews out of Egypt to the Promised Land. God gave Moses The Ten Commandments. God and Moses spoke to each other all the time. God gave Moses the words to write the first five books of the Bible. Moses was the lawgiver for the tribes of Israel. This is pure craziness.

David was the greatest king that Israel ever had. David killed Goliath. David’s son Solomon built the Holy Temple in the city of Jerusalem. God’s Son Jesus was a direct descendant of David. Every Jewish person born traces his or her heritage back to David.

David and Moses do not seem like very logical choices or are they?

Let us look very closely at the life of Moses. Moses was supposed to die at birth. The king of Egypt directed that all male children born to Hebrew women were to be killed. Exodus 1:16 The Amplified Bible states, ” When you act as midwives to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birth stool, if it is a son, you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, she shall live.”

The Hebrew midwives in charge of these deeds decided to disobey Pharaoh and let the Hebrew males live. This angered Pharaoh. He saw more and more Hebrews being born and taking over the land. Pharaoh issued a new directive, Exodus 1:22 The Amplified Bible, ” Then Pharaoh charged all his people saying, Every son born (to the Hebrews) you shall cast into the river (Nile), but every daughter you shall allow to live.”

Moses’ mom Jochebed hid him for three months before she put Moses in a basket and sent him down the Nile. This is the crazy part. Guess who found Moses. Pharaoh’s daughter decided to take a bath and that’s when she discovered Moses on the bank of the Nile. Pharaoh’s daughter gave Moses back to his mother so she would nurse him. When Moses became older, he was returned to live with Pharaoh’s daughter. She named him Moses,” Because I drew him out of the water, ” Exodus 2:10, The Amplified Bible.

Moses, now grown up, came upon an Egyptian beating up a Hebrew slave. Moses became enraged. He looked around to make sure no one saw him and killed the Egyptian. The next day Moses stumbled upon two Hebrew men arguing and fighting. Moses asked them to stop but one of the men fired back at Moses, Exodus 2:14, The New Living Translation, ” Who do you think you are?” replied the man. “Who appointed you to be our prince and judge? Do you plan to kill me as you killed that Egyptian yesterday?” Moses was badly frightened because he realized that everyone knew what he had done.”

Pharaoh put a contract hit on Moses. Moses split the scene. He ran away to the desert. He hid there for forty years until God revealed himself to Moses in a burning bush.

Saul was the king of Israel. Saul got himself into hot water with God. Saul decided to disobey and reject God. God became angry with Saul so the Lord sent Samuel in search of a new king. The Lord directed Samuel to Jesse. The Lord said to Samuel, 1 Samuel 16:1, The New Living Translation,” Find a man named Jesse who lives there, for I selected one of his sons to be my new king.”

Jesse paraded all seven of his sons before the prophet Samuel however the Lord rejected them all. Samuel asked Jesse, 1 Samuel 16:11, The New Living Translation, ” Are these all the sons you have? ” ” There is still the youngest,” Jesse replied. “But he’s out in the fields watching the sheep. “Send for him at once,” Samuel said. ” We will not sit until he arrives.”

David never entered his father’s house. David hung out with sheep. He was the weirdo of the family. David played the harp. He wrote poetry. He was the runt of the family. He was not at all like his older brothers. They were the warriors of the family. They were born to lead.

Samuel 16:12 The New Living Translation, described David as, ” He was ruddy and handsome, with pleasant eyes.” The rest of the verse states, ” And the Lord said, ” This is the one, anoint him.” Samuel did and he left.

David’s family was in total shock. David was going to be the next King of Israel. He’s not a leader. David’s not a warrior. He’s handsome. Abinadab and Shammah are the real leaders and warriors not David.

Goliath came on the scene and he challenged the manhood of Israel. The entire Israeli army cowered in fear. David heard the ranting of Goliath and so he stepped forward to fight the Goliath. 1 Samuel 17:45 states, ” David shouted in reply, ” You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to in the name the LORD Almighty? the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”

” Today the LORD will conquer you, and I will cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is one God in Israel,” 1 Samuel 17; 46 The New Living Translation.

” And everyone will know that the LORD does not need weapons to rescue his people, It is his battle, not ours. The LORD will give you to us.” 1 Samuel 17:47 The New Living Translation.

David killed Goliath. God had his victory and the world knew that THE LORD is one true God.

Our Problems Are Only a Symptom of What is Really Wrong with Our Nation

Can it Be We Have Turned Our Backs on God?


My father used to tell me son use your head for something besides a hat rack. Truer words were never spoken. In my opinion, we as a collective nation are using our heads as a hat rack. We have turned our back on our

Christian roots upon which this nation was built upon.

I thank God my father taught me the importance of having a classical education. Reading was a big part of my growing up. Our house had many books. I read all the time. I like reading. It was fun.

We had one special room we called our library. The room was well stocked with books. There were many books on diverse subjects as well as authors. The subjects ranged from The Bible, to economics, to the Civil War, to World War One and Two, The Revolutionary War and our Founding Fathers as well as World History. We had many authors to pick and choose from whom we wanted to read. Some of them were Karl Marx, German sociologist Max Weber, French sociologist Emile Durkheim as well as Plato, Socrates, Alexander De Tocqueville, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Doctor Benjamin Rush and everything in between.

My father wanted me to be able to think for myself. He wanted me to become an educated man of God. I have had many great teachers over the years as well too. They range from people like: Father Jack Flynn, Rabbi Kramer, Pastor Jim Tolle, Doctor Stanley Wilk, and Doctor Jack Smith McCrary to commentators such as Rush Limbaugh, Walter E. Williams, and Thomas Sowell.

My thirst for knowledge has led me to conclude this certain fact. We are headed down a very dangerous path towards a Marxist Fascist society. This is a direct result of God being taken out of our country.

The head cheerleader is President Obama and his minions The Democrat Party. I can hear the screams now from many folks how can you say that about our President. That’s wrong. You can’t say that about him. You’re a racist, bigot, and homophobe.

I can and I will. Let’s look at the simple facts. According to Wikipedia a simple definition of Fascism goes like this: “Fascism is a radical authoritarian nationalist ideology that aims to create a single party state with a government led by a dictator who seeks national unity and development by requiring individuals to subordinate self interests to the collective interests of the nation or race.”

We are now in the beginning stages of the government take over of the banking industry coupled with the government take over the auto industry and the healthcare industry what is your logical conclusion.

When George W. Bush was elected President in 2000, what did all of the mainstream press, leftist political commentators, as well as Democrat Party officials, and leftist actors and actresses, filmmakers and every other SOB under the sun say about Bush. Let me refresh your memory.

According to Fox News Poll in 2006, the raw numbers showed that 51% of democrats wanted George Bush to fail. If you doubt me you can look up the results in Garden State Patriot and The Flashback 2006 poll reported by Fox News.

According to The Right Perspective Democrat pollster Craig Charney wrote: “Remember for better or worse, George W. Bush will be our President for more than two years. Hoping that he fails is really hoping America will fail. These people detest Bush so much that they don’t mind America getting a setback across the globe if it will weaken Bush.”

Jessica Lange was quoted as saying in 2002 at a film festival in Spain: ” I despise him {George Bush}. I despise his administration and everything they stand for. It is an embarrassing time to be an American. It really is. It’s humiliating.”

According to House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi said about President George W. Bush in 2004: ” The situation in Iraq and the reckless economic policies in the United States speak to me one issue for me, and that is the incompetence of our leader.”

James Carville, former democrat strategist, according to The American Thinker was reported to have said just prior to the 911 attacks: ” I certainly hope he doesn’t succeed.”

Filmmaker Michael Moore was quoted as saying: ” You know he’s {George Bush} there illegally. You know he was not elected either by the popular vote or by the vote in Florida.”

Here’s another quote by Michael Moore, ” I would like to apologize for referring to George W. Bush as a deserter. What I meant to say is that George W. Bush is a deserter, an election thief, a drunk driver, WMD liar, and a functional illiterate. And he poops his pants.”
If you doubt me then do the research.

In my mind, you can’t have it both ways. The Democrats, liberal media pundits, the mainstream drive by media tell us the great American tradition is descent. It is okay for The Democrats, liberal media pundits, and the mainstream drive by media to attack and saying horrible things about President George W. Bush. But when a Democrat is elected President, you can’t criticize him. When you do, it is considered racist, bigoted and flat out wrong.

In the real world this just doesn’t fly.

So what is the point of this story? It’s very simple. There are many Biblical principles at work. Whether you agree with me or not the straight simple facts are we are a nation that is founded on Christian principles. Do the research.

Our economic problems are but a symptom of our moral decay. The Bible is very specific when a nation turns it’s back on God. But if we ask God for his help, He will be there for us to help us through any tough and troubling time.

My Pastor Jim Tolle gave me this Biblical passage 2 Chronicles 7:14, The New King James Version, ” If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Jeremiah 18:7 The New American Standard Bible states: ” At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to uproot, to pull down or to destroy it.”

Jeremiah 18:8, The New American Standard Bible, ” If that nation against which I have spoken turns from evil, I will relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring upon it.”

Ezekiel 14:6, The King James Version, ” Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord: Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.”

In the end, the choice is yours. You can either follow the Word of God or continue down this path of Marxist-Fascism. As you can see, we are now beginning to reap the benefits of what we have sown. This is not a pretty sight for our future generations.

Freedom’s Price Tag

With Freedom Comes a Huge Responsibility

 Freedom is very precious commodity. With freedom comes responsibility. Freedom is the basic principle that The United States of America was founded upon. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Hancock, and George Washington knew that true freedom came from God. What God? You ask. Freedom emanates from God of The Holy Bible.

Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1781 (Volume IV, page 289,from Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia), ” God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of the nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

John Adams wrote these words the day after The Declaration was approved by congress to his wife Abigail, ” {July 4th} ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”

John Adams wrote in a letter to Thomas Jefferson on June 28th, 1813, ” The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and the attributes of God.”

John Hancock said on April 15th, 1775,(A Day of Fasting,Humiliation and Prayer, with total abstinence from labor and recreation) ” In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as Men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every prudent Measure should be taken to ward off the impending Judgements.”

What many on the left fail to realize is that these great yet mortal men, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, John Adams, George Washington and the other brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence put their entire lives on the line so that we can have the rights and privileges given to us under a simple yet very powerful Biblical based Constitution of The United States of America.

When you go through the names of the men who signed The Declaration of Independence, you will find that 95% of them LOST EVERYTHING.

According to, the British hounded Thomas McKean, who was one of the signers of The Declaration of Independence, until he was forced to leave his home and live in hiding. McKean lost everything and he died in poverty.

According to the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, at the Battle of Yorktown, British General Cornwallis took over the home of Thomas Nelson Jr. (signer of The Declaration of Independence) and used it as his headquarters. Nelson Jr told George Washington to open fire. Washington did and the Nelson home was blow into the next life. Thomas Nelson Jr. died bankrupt.

It was reported by Faith of Our Founder Fathers that Francis Lewis signer of The Declaration of Independence, had his home and properties completely destroyed by the British. Lewis’s wife was thrown in jail.

These brave men knew that they were living in intolerable conditions. They were willing to sacrifice every possession they had so we would have freedom to choose where we want to live, worship God how we want to worship God, own property, and to have our God given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

What amazes me is that many of our so-called elites and supposed intellectuals of our society don’t know or don’t have a clue that our nation is based on Biblical principles. The most precious of these is our God given freedom to choose how we want to live and worship yet President Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Hilary Clinton, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrat Party are hell bent on destroying our country and making it into a Marxist haven.

You can also throw into the mix John McCain, Olympia Snowe, Arlen Spector, and many members of the Republican Party who are willing accomplices in helping the Democrats throw this nations heritage down the crapper to further their own political careers.

This is down right scary that these people have been elected to guide this great nation of ours right into the ground and destroy the very principles upon which The United States of America is founded upon.

Very few people are willing to stand up to this onslaught to usurp our freedom. Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage are the only folks in the media who come to my mind. Governor of  Louisiana Bobby Jindal and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin come to my mind as well but that’s it .

 My own experience has taught me that the price tag for not following God’s word can be very steep and expensive.

God help us as we head down this slippery slope towards Marxism and the relinquishing of our precious freedom in exchange of some momentary comfort.

The War on Individual Freedom Has Begun

Our New Motto is Government Knows Best

This was first written April 1, 2009.

The more I read and listen to the news the more disturbed I have become. The cacophony of voices is screaming out both in favor and against the federal government taking over the private sector.

This is enough to send you screaming out into the woods and shout out to God, ” I have had enough of this. Please stop this insanity.” Yet, this is exactly where we find ourselves as a Nation torn between our God given right of individual freedom upon which our Nation was founded and the slow but steady shift in our thinking that a bigger stronger government knows best.

When I look at this on the surface I see this steady parade towards a Marxist society began during The Great Depression of the 1930’s when Franklin Roosevelt began Social Security program and the government works projects.

President Johnson really accelerated government intrusion in our life with his War on Poverty that began in 1964.

To me all these events have contributed to pushing us towards a Marxist society but this is only surface thinking and examination. The simple truth is that President Obama embodies the very heart of the Marxist philosophy and thinking. All one has to do is see how we are in process of nationalizing the auto industry, the banks, and healthcare.

For now, everything is turned on its head. Right is wrong and wrong is right. Government is always right while the individual is wrong. Believing in God is wrong but belief in the god of the environment and the god of populism is right.

The Bible is old fashioned while the new bible of Marxism and Al Gore’s god of the environment is hip, slick, and cool.

We have gotten away from the first three of The Ten Commandments In Exodus 20:2 King James Version states, ” I am the Lord they God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”

Exodus 20:3, King James Version, ” Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

Exodus 20:4, King James Version, ” Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in the heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”

To me this sort of thing sounds like what is happening now in our country. We have made Barrack Obama our new messiah and his government is our new god.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. In my opinion, the single most important event that changed the course of our nations history took place when John F. Kennedy was President. This is when we effectively removed God from the fabric of our nation. And when I refer to God, I am referring to God of The Holy Bible.

For me it is important to be very specific in what I am talking about so there will be no confusion on any ones part as to what I mean.

The exact date was June 25th, 1962 when The Supreme Court of The United States ruled that it was illegal to pray in our schools. The Associated Press, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, or any other news service or history book can document this.

We as Nation decided to turn our collective backs on God. Our Founding Fathers for all their faults and shortcomings knew that all life came from the living God of The Bible. Folks like Doctor Benjamin Rush, George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Noah Webster were all Christians.

If one examinees the writing of these men you can no doubt see the Biblical principles written into The Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson wrote in the front of his well-worn Bible, ” I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines Jesus Christ.”

Patrick Henry wrote in 1776, ” It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionist Christians; not on religious principles, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

The Bible clearly states what happens when a Nation turns away from God. And that is not a very pretty sight. All one has to do is look at the history of Israel to see what happens when a Nation turns its back on God.

Saul disobeyed God. David became the King of Israel. David was a godly man but he had his faults. David lusted after Bath-sheba. David did the first contract hit and had her husband killed. God’s prophet Nathan informed David that he has sinned against God. David knew he was wrong and David repented. But the damage already had been done. God forgave David but the results of David sinning against God had many repercussions. One of them resulted David’s first-born son to be born dead. The second resulted in the House of David turning against itself. David’s son Absalom attacked his father in an attempt to take over the kingdom.

David truly loved God and he was a man of God but David was a man. He sinned. And what saved David was he truly repented to God for his sins. God loved David and God forgave David.

However David’s son Solomon started out as a man of God but he turned his
back on God and in the end of the Nation of Israel was destroyed and scattered all over the world.

Most political commentators and conservative talk show hosts don’t quite get the total picture. For me, Rush Limbaugh is dead bang right on the money. Rush likes to talk about how individual freedom is the corner stone of what our country is built upon. Rush is the only one who takes it a step further.

Rush has said many times on his radio show that our freedom comes directly from our creator God.

Rush totally gets it. Rush totally understands that God is creator of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To directly quote a portion of The Declaration of Independence, “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.”

All things emanate from God. One of my friends said to me enough of this Bible stuff. I can’t. What many have failed to realize is that our nation was founded on Biblical principles.

Maybe it’s time for our nation to have a collective enema, get down on our collective knees, and beg God for forgiveness.
