WHY CIVILIZATIONS PERISHED – IS OBAMA’S AMERICA NEXT?

This  incredible synoptic overview by Dr. Rowe,  of the history of human depravity, slavery and destruction is deserving of the title, above, which we gave it. In the name of multiculturalism the Obama Administration seems committed to undermining and destroying  the Christian pillars of America.  Those pillars are the very essence of our God-given Constitutional freedoms. 

Obama is simultaneously dismantling, right on schedule, our missile defenses [See our 2/19/12 blog. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE LEON PANETTA SOUNDS ALARM]. Also, his administration now proposes legislation which, if enacted, will disarm the citizenry of our sacred Second Amendment right to bear arms [for the purpose of defending ourselves and our families. An intelligence report about dictatorships notes: A cardinal feature of communist regimes, like all dictatorships, is the prohibition of private ownership of arms, creating a monopoly of force in the hands of the State.].  The lengthening list of Obama’s  all-out attacks on our most foundational Bible-anchored freedoms represents assaults on the teachings and mandates of Jesus Christ Himself, the Author of America’s liberties.  Will Obama drive America into the ashes? Will America’s Christians Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ Has made us free (Gal 5:1)?

Dr. Rowe writes: 

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.
