Let’s put Putin’s forecast that “America is committing suicide”  in context with historians and political scientists of fame and credibility;  then examine what has already happened and is happening to America.  Are we, through blindness and default,  and abandonment of the Author of  America’s freedoms,  surrendering our sacred heritage to evil?

George Orwell:

      “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.”

Nikita Khrushahev, 1959:

     “Your children’s children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible.  No, you won’t accept communism outright; but we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you wake up and find that you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you; we will so weaken your economy until you fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.

Ayn Rand:

     “There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force; socialism, by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.

Vaclav Klaus (former Premier, Czech Republic):

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.  Blaming the prince of  fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.”



Famous researcher, author, radio commentator Earl Nightingale, in narrating a recording “The Strangest Secret” introducing seemingly revolutionary success and prosperity concepts,  summarized the blessings of our God-given American way of life:

“We live today in a golden age. This is an era that man has looked forward, dreamed of and worked toward for thousands of years. But since it’s here we pretty well take it for granted. We in America are particularly fortunate to live in the richest land that ever existed on the face of the earth – a land of abundant opportunity for everyone….”. 


America became known as “the land of the free, the home of the brave”. Why? Because since her founding every aspect of her citizens’ lives, including government, was based upon Jesus Christ, the Author of our freedoms. While the world perpetually agonized in relentless barbaric struggles between truth (“light” – the dream of freedom)  and evil (“darkness” – barbarity and enslavement under which untold millions of men, women and children suffered and died, and so-continue at this hour),  Jesus Christ, through the Bible became, and remains the wellspring of hope for mankind.

In fact, Thomas Jefferson, who authored America’s Declaration of Independence – which was unanimously signed by all 56 representatives, wrote these TOTALLY REVOLUTIONARY words:

“The God who gave us life gave us liberty.”  The Declaration proceeds to declare: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created (not evolved – ed) equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments  are  instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed….”. NOTE: a free people not in bondage.

From that Cause came the U.S. Constitution, itself anchored on the God-given rights of man.  The foundation for America’s legal system became the  Ten Commandments of God. (Exodus 20)


Why do America’s enemies attack the Book of Genesis more than any other Book? Because it is the foundation for our Creator’s wishes for an obedient, thus happy, mankind. Genesis deals with origins (in the beginning): time, space, mass, solar days, laws of life, laws of happiness, laws of government, laws of marriage, laws of liberty; the concepts of order and design vs chaos; science – including the Law of Conservation; Second Law of Thermodynamics; apparent age (universe), and everything man needs to know to honor and obey his Creator.  It is entirely understandable that the enemies of freedom would focus on undermining God’s Word set forth in Genesis.


The United States of America became an oasis for the fallen, depraved, enslaving, evil world which could only subdue our country by making it weak and vulnerable to their evil, to their wickedness and enslavement, by erosion of  our Christian values over timebeginning in our churches and educational system.


Their central strategy would be to transition the churches from their foundational militant Christ-commanded advocacy of “Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free” (Gal. 5:1), and, “ Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” (Ps 94:16); to a love-based doctrine of turn-the-other-cheek passivism declaring that “God is in control so don’t be concerned” about events and our Christian duty to be ever vigilant and on guard. “Eternal vigilance is forever the price of freedom” (John Philpot Curan – often attributed to Thomas Jefferson and endorsed in concept by the Founding Fathers).


Christ defined the “righteous” as “…bold as a lion” (Prov 28:1). Christ defined His Christian followers: “Ye are the salt of the earth…Ye are the light of the world… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Mat 5:13, 14 -16). “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust (1 Tim. 6:20).

Both the Old and New Testaments are packed with similar eternal-vigilance mandates from our Creator.  Neither Testament advocates passive non-resistance toward evil.


Many today (often led by the clergy) are declaring that it is too late – that America has so blatantly and arrogantly disobeyed Christ – the Author of our liberty, that the decay and demolition of our freedoms is irreversible and the consequences are inevitable. That disarming, demoralizing propaganda is also advanced relentlessly by our would-be slave masters.


But what does Christ say to the eternally vigilant: “I give you power to tread on serpents…and over all the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19).


The struggle is fundamentally theological: Christ vs anti-Christ, thus abdication of duty and obedience by the church is at its root. Reversal of that abdication is the solution. “Praise [and obey – ed] God, from Whom all blessings flow!” Our freedoms will not be saved by atheists, agnostics, non-committed politically neutralized or “liberal” citizens.  True – at this stage of America’s decline – on every front from morality to outright blasphemy against our Creator and Savior, the probability for reversing the course looks dim, almost requiring a Spiritual intervention.


Putin is undoubtedly right in speculating that America is embarked on a course of “suicide” (and enslavement of her men, women and children); as is Czech Premier Vaclav Klaus in stating that our declining perilous condition is attributable to a “depraved electorate” who have abandoned America’s Christian values.   The problem and the solution are both at the foot of America’s churches.


But again, Christ has declared that I give you power…over all the power of the enemy.  

This is the hour when true patriots must come forth and re-declare that Christ is the Author of America’s freedoms; stand up against the workers of iniquity, and stand fast in the freedom wherewith Christ hath made us free.


“Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

“I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (John 14:6).

We must understand what we’re up-against, ie the nature of our (Christ’s) enemies, before we can take action to correct our course.
