OATH KEEPERS is an association of Military, Veterans, and peace officers who will honor their oaths to defend the Constitution, will NOT just follow orders, will stand for liberty, and are trying to save the Republic.

John Holdren is his name and here are some quotes from him...

“It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

“If some individuals contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility”

“Moreover, if the United States government refuses to take proper measures, they authorize the United Nations to take compelling force.”

President-elect Barack Obama stated in December that he had nominated Holdren as Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy as part of his Administration's mission to promote an unbiased science. The goal, said Obama, was to protect "free and open inquiry" and "ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology."
"It's about listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it's inconvenient - especially when it's inconvenient."

Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil..."

I love to read the Psalms when I hear of such wickedness being devised. Especially Psalm 37, here are some excerpts...

Do not fret because of evil men...for like the grass they will soon wither...

The wicked plot against the righteous...but the Lord laughs at the wicked...

The wicked draw the sword...but their swords will pierce their own hearts...

All sinners will be destroyed...

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.
I recently blogged "No one needs to ask "Why?"...

That blog covered the fact that America is in the shape she is in because we have forgotten our HisStory, which is to say, we have forgotten to learn from what God has said and done.

Today, I want to blog about the BIGGEST reason why we have the problems we have in America.

Let's look at 3 questions that I believe are at the heart of the issue...

Q. Why have so many Americans surrendered their faith in God for faith in the State?
A. Sin.
"Thou shall have no other gods before Me". Exodus 20:2

Sin is trying to fulfill a God-given need without God. ~ John Piper

The State is suppose to be the provider of justice, NOT a dispenser of sustenance...
When the state enlarges its jurisdictional boundaries, without any regard to limits; it gradually assumes what God alone possesses; unlimited power and authority...
Therefore, the more we turn to the State for assistance, the more we make it our God.
~ Gary Demar

Q. How did this happen?
A. It began in the garden...and it's called total depravity.

Read R.L.Dabney on depravity at http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/dabney/5points.htm#t

Salvation is accomplished by the almighty power of the triune God. The Father chose a people, the Son died for them, the Holy Spirit makes Christ's death effective by bringing the elect to faith and repentance, thereby causing them to willingly obey the Gospel. The entire process (election, redemption, regeneration) is the work of God and is by grace alone. Thus God, not man, determines who will be the recipients of the gift of salvation. http://www.reformed.org/

Q. How does this sinful nature manifest itself?
A. This sinful nature man possess has led to many false religions and ideologies that have plagued our nation for decades and brought us to where we are today. Here are just a few examples of these false religions and ideologies that flow from a totally depraved heart; the excerpts were taken from our Biblical Worldview Curriculum, to which I highly recommend: http://www.summit.org/

Religious Humanism: believes man has the power to change people...where Christians believe, God and God alone has the power to change people.

Utilitarianism: believes that the greatest happiness of the greatest number should be the aim of all actions.

Moral Relativism: believes that right and wrong are determined by the individual or culture.

Post Modernism: believes there are no moral absolutes.

Pluralism: all beliefs are true.

Globalism: the belief in the need for one-world-government.

Egalitarianism: all people should get the same and be treated the same regardless.

Deist: God created the world but is not in control of it.

Polytheist: ok to worship many gods.

Atheist: believe there is no God.

Agnostic: believe it is impossible to know if there is a God.

Existentialist: life has no meaning outside of what you make it.

Evolutionist: believe one species develops from another and God (if He exist) did not "create" anything.

Theistic Evoluntionist: believe that God works through evolution.

Pantheist: God is everything and everything is God.

Transcendentalist: God exist only in the mind.

Universalist: all souls go to heaven.

Jihadist: Moslems who war against unbelievers of Allah.

Naturalist: believe there is no supernatural or spiritual creation.

Annihilationist: believe when we die we will simply cease to exist.

Historical Revisionist: those who revise historical events in order to support their worldview.

Economic Interventionist: those (secular humanist, post modernist, etc...) who recommend economic intervention in order to control man's economic affairs.

And the list goes on and on...
I would encourage you to make sure your view of what is going on in America is a biblical view.
Is it too late for America?
Morally, she has already fallen and economically, it is only a matter of time; just do the math!

Yes, a reformation and revival would be nice and I pray God would be merciful and grant such a blessing but I must also acknowledge the book of Revelation and be willing to pray..."Not my will but Thine be done."

No one needs to ask "Why America is failing?" because every one knows...
When men do not learn from their history, they are doomed to repeat it and after several thousand years of history, it is obvious that men DO NOT learn from history!

So! As a refresher...
What would a nation have to do or not do in order for God to remove His blessed hand of restraint?

I believe there are several but here are 5 major concerns Dr.Peter Ruckman, President, Founder, and Teacher of the Pensacola Bible Institute, points out.

#1 The undermining of the dignity and sanctity of the HOME...meaning: role-distortions such as: making women equal to men, thus removing the man as the "head" of the house, and removing the wife\mother from the home, and so on...
By inventing "families" composed of sodomites and lesbians and so on...
By unbiblical practices of divorce, spiritual training, schooling, etc...
#2 Unbiblical stewardship, Unjust weights, Higher and higher unjust taxes, etc...meaning: Welfare, Medicare, Social Security, Food Stamps, Socialized Medicine, Bail-outs, etc...
#3 The mad craze for PLEASURE...every one doing what is right in his own eyes, while becoming more and more brutal and immoral every year.
#4 The decay of INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY...just as an example, in America, we have went beyond freeing the black slaves (during the Civil War) to making them innocent of crimes they commit on the basis that their accusers were "racists". Then you give them "special rights" given to no other race - called "affirmative action". With that in place, you not only put blacks over whites, you put women over men, children over adults, and queers over straights on the grounds that they are all "oppressed minorities". (This is heartbreakingly sad because this line of thinking puts everyone in a "victim mentality" which is completely unbiblical and enslaving!) (Not to mention that it will soon be the reason for silencing preachers who speak out against this!!!!!)
#5 The decay of religion..."faith" fading into just "forms"...in America we have atheist, communist, humanist, and a whole host of others, including some liberal protestants, supporting the National Education Association that teaches our young people: life came accidentally from dead organic matter and therefore everyone is relieved from obeying their Creator. From this point on, all "guiding" is by hook or crook, revising history, or ignoring reality in order to make carbon copied "world citizens." And this is just one example!

All 5 of these America posesses plus more!
Congratulations America, the depression is here...a total economic collaspe leading to a "one-world-government" is very nearby... and God is steadily removing His hand of blessing!

"All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing" ~Edmund Burke

What will you do?
