“MIRROR: HAVE I ABANDONED MY CHILDREN?”

Today, everybody understands that our God-given freedoms are on the precipice of being lost under the merciless heel of tyranny.  That tyranny is triumphing through our confusion, default and disobedience to the action mandates of the “Author of liberty”, Christ Himself. We are throwing away the priceless heritage which America’s Christian  founders, at unspeakable personal sacrifices, passed to us.  

They made clear the reality that freedom is not free; that our incontestable duty as Christian heirs is to Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free (Gal. 5:1);  to …stand up for me against the workers of iniquity (Ps 94:16);  to Occupy…(Luke 19:13); to…be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet.5:8). 

From Genesis through Revelation, the Bible is packed with commands from God and Christ to the faithful to confront and triumph over evil in all of its forms both personal and governmental.  There is no action option to the Lord’s professing faithful: All nations that forget God shall be turned into hell (Psalm 9:17).       

Abraham Lincoln was aware of the unspeakable sufferings of the people under the heel of tyranny, which is why he wrote in his famous 1862 Message to Congress: “Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history….”.  He referenced God and concluded that “America is the last best hope of earth”.  Lincoln expanded that conviction in his immortal 1863 Gettysburg address:  “…that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom…and that government of the people…by the people…for the people…shall not perish from the earth”. 

Today,  America’s government is undermining our most priceless God-given freedoms such as the 2nd Amendment (our right and duty as citizens to bear arms). Our current government’s ultimate objective appears to be to disarm and render defenseless its citizenry;  and it is opening the floodgates to illegal foreign immigration (“A nation divided cannot stand”… Lincoln) .  God Himself has been publically outlawed, and we-the-people have allowed that abomination.

WHAT IF “WE THE PEOPLE” AND OUR CHILDREN, BECOME “WE THE SUBJUGATED, TYRANNIZED PEOPLE?”  What could it be like? 

ANSWER:  H. Edward Rowe, Th.D., D.D. addressed that question by listing “A Few Fallen Civilizations” and his brief commentary.  Is the following a preview of the inheritance you are leaving your children?

  

SEVENTEEN FALLEN CIVILIZATIONS

EGYPT, BABYLON, PERSIA, ISRAEL AFTER DAVID AND SOLOMON, GREECE, CARTHAGE, ROME, AZTECS, MAYANS, ASSYRIA, HITTITES, PHOENICIA, SUMERIA, HAN CHINA, MINOA, INCAS, AND MONGOLIA. 

            All of The fallen civilizations were doomed from the beginning due to the worship of false gods whittled out of wood, chiseled out of stone, or created by depraved imagination. None had wisdom to impart in matters related to governance. Human sacrifices could not take away sin and redeem the fallen soul. Such commands as “love God and love your neighbor” did not exist.

            Citizens of the fallen civilizations never enjoyed even the dream of freedom. Human enslavement was universal. The purpose of military expeditions was to plunder treasuries, liquidate the aged and infirm, and kidnap strong men and beautiful women to use as slaves. The pantheon of gods in the Persian, Grecian and Roman Empires did not exist beyond the depraved imagination of men. Loyalty to gods whose temples were brothels accomplished nothing constructive in terms of imparting civic wisdom. The fallen civilizations were built on sand and they could not stand.  

            G. K. Chesterton correctly stated, “The idea of liberty has ultimately a religious root.” Not until Jesus Christ came to Earth could there come into existence a city and a nation that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God. Jesus Christ was the most important historical figure in the founding of the United States of America, because His righteous teachings and spiritual influence guided the great English political philosophers such as Edward Coke (1552-1634), John Locke (1632-1704), William Blackstone (1723-1780), and Edmund Burke (1729-1797).  

            The English freedom writers and the founders of America were spiritual offspring of the Reformation of the 16th century which had rediscovered the teachings of Jesus and His followers after fifteen centuries of prevailing apostasy known as the dark ages. Americans should thank our Savior, Jesus Christ, for such freedoms as we enjoy today.
