Having squandered its Judeo-Christian heritage and erstwhile Biblically based culture, America finds itself currently in the position where there is no hunger for “the bread that came down from Heaven.”
Early America’s objective encompassed instilling Biblical character into its citizens through education solidly grounded in Judeo-Christian principles. They recognized that “water will not flow uphill, nor will the natural man act contrary to his corrupt nature,” as A.W. Pink wrote in his Exposition of the Gospel of John in reference to God’s never-ending order.
“What should a man do who falls down and breaks his hip?” asked Pink. “He cannot rise: should he, then, lie there in his misery and perish? Not if he has any desire for relief.”
“If the foundations [of a godly society] are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” asked the sweet psalmist of Israel in Psalm 11:3. Well, of course, rebuild the foundations.
English scholar, preacher, and historian Thomas Fuller [1608-1661], one of the most prolific authors of the 17th century observed: “Is it possible that the foundations of religion should be destroyed? Can God be in so long a sleep, yea, so long a lethargy, as patiently to permit the ruins thereof? If He looks on, and yet does not see these foundations when destroyed, where then is His omniscience? If He sees it, and cannot help it, where then is His omnipotence? If He sees it, can help it, and will not, where then is His goodness and mercy?
“We answer negatively that it is impossible that the foundations of religion should ever be totally and finally destroyed, either in relation to the church in general, or in reference to every true and lively member thereof. For the first, we have an express promise of Christ in Matthew 16:18, ‘The gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’”
Thankfully this Mom has had enough; where are the Christians of America? twitter.com/i/status/1433514668665024513
Jesus’ Church, His ekklesia, must move to the sound of battle in the public square. Public education is ground zero.
