Call to Pray by Sam Adams “Father of American Revolution”

Despite the lies that revisionists try and push, America was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles, and right now we need to pray for God to raise up those principles; for I fear for the generation of my grandchildren and beyond. – Mike

Call to Pray by Sam Adams – “Father of American Revolution” 

“Bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose assistance they hoped to obtain”

 

…Samuel Adams called for the first Continental Congress.
When it first met, September 6, 1774, he proposed that it be opened with prayer, despite the delegates being of different Christian denominations which did not always get along:
“It did not become men, professing to be Christian men, who had come together for solemn deliberation in the hour of their extremity, to say there was so wide a difference in their religious belief that they could not, as one man, bow the knee in prayer to the Almighty, whose advice and assistance they hoped to obtain.”

COMMENTS:

Today in America we celebration Labor Day. First celebrated in 1882 and continually since 1894, it is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. 

After 8 years of near record high unemployment the nations laborers had much to celebrate in Jan 2020 when for the a full quarter unemployment hovered at 3.5% the lowest in decades. Then COVID-19 and everything changed overnight. 

If you watch any political news on either side of the isle all they seem to want to do is play the “Blame Game“. While I believe it is important to point out the differences in POLICY between your positions and your opponents today that does not seem to matter only who has a better more likable personality. 

So today 07 September 2020, as we celebrate the 126th Labor Day,  let us put aside the Blame Game and concentrate on what really matters Laboring Together to Build A Better America. Is that not what the Founding Founder’s wanted. 


BREAKDOWN:

(A Song of degrees for Solomon.)

Except the LORD build the house, – Whatever you are building a family, a house, a nation the LORD is the essential ingredient our founding fathers (despite the naysayers) understood this. 

they labour in vain that build it: – there have been many “great men” in the world who have taken nothing with them to an eternity of self condemnation in hell. 


APPLICATION: 

We all have a choice, Individually and as a Nation, to Labor and Build upon the Constitutional Republic our Founding Fathers set forth, or let America dissolve.  

Further we can choose to Righteously Labor with God or Not. We have all seen the chaos and depravity running amok on many of our cities streets. Is that the building up of America we want to leave for the future?

“Establishment Clause must be interpreted by reference to historical practices & understandings”

I have repeatedly and will continue to say that America is NOT a “Christian Nation.” If we were we would be a Theocracy, ruled by God, instaed the Founding Fathers decided on a new experiment in rule, so we are a Republic. However for those who would invoke the non-existent separation of church and state clause, we were founded upon, guided by and designed to follow Judaeo-Christian laws and principles.

Reagan Warned of Socialism; Secularism; and Abortion’s “Tragic Taking of Unborn”

Reagan Warned of Socialism, Secularism, & Abortion’s “Tragic Taking of Unborn”

Bill Federer by

Ronald Reagan was born FEBRUARY 6, 1911.

​A graduate of Eureka College, IL, 1932, he worked as a life guard, having 77 rescues.

​He then announced for radio stations in Iowa.

​He became a sports announcer for WHO radio, covering Chicago Cubs baseball games, and then traveled with the team.

​While with the Cubs in California, Ronald Reagan auditioned with Warner Brothers, landing a contract doing “B films.”

He was a Captain in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II.

During his career as an actor, Ronald Reagan appeared in over 50 films, including:

  • ​Dark Victory;
  • Knute Rockne,
  • All American;
  • This is the Army, and
  • Kings Row.

​He married Jane Wyman in 1940, and had children Maureen, Christine (died a day old) and Michael (adopted).

Reagan was elected President of the Screen Actors Guild.

​His second marriage was to Nancy Davis in 1952, and they had children Patti and Ron.

​He switched from Democrat to Republican, and was elected Governor of California, 1967-1975.

​When he began running for President, some conservatives did not support him because he was the first Presidential candidate who had been divorced.

In 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected the 40th U.S. President, being the second oldest person elected to that position.

He was 69 years old when elected, and 69 days after his inauguration, he survived an assassination attempt.

Ronald Reagan stated in 1961:

​”One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project …

James Madison in 1788 … said … ‘There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations’ …

​What can we do about this? … We can write to our congressmen and our senators … Say right now that we want no further encroachment on these individual liberties and freedoms … We do not want socialized medicine …

​If you don’t, this program I promise you will pass … and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known … until, one day … we will awake to find that we have socialism.

​And … you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.”

At St. John’s University in New York, March 28, 1985, Reagan repeated one of President Gerald Ford’s famous phrases:

​”Government that is big enough to give you everything you want is more likely to simply take everything you’ve got.”

Reagan remarked to the Heritage Council, Warren, Michigan, October 10, 1984:

“Henry David Thoreau was right: that government is best which governs least.”

In his 1964 speech, “A Time for Choosing,” Ronald Reagan stated:

​”I suggest to you there is no left or right, only an up or down. Up to the maximum of individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism; and regardless of their humanitarian purpose, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have, whether they know it or not, chosen this downward path.”

On March 20, 1981, at the Conservative Political Action Conference Dinner, Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC, Ronald Reagan stated:

“Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid. That’s why the Marxist vision of man without God must eventually be seen as an empty and a false faith — the second oldest in the world — first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with whispered words …’Ye shall be as gods.’ The crisis of the Western world … exists to the degree in which it is indifferent to God.”

Reagan stated in Beijing, China, April 27, 1984:

​”I have seen the rise of fascism and communism. Both philosophies glorify the arbitrary power of the state … But both theories fail. Both deny those God-given liberties that are the inalienable right of each person on this planet, indeed, they deny the existence of God.”

The (True) Pursuit of Happiness

Words matter. Definitions matter. Christians, of all people, should understand how much words and definitions, especially today, are being used to either affirm or deny reality, even shape our view of reality.

George Orwell, of course, understood the power of words. In fact, he so masterfully captured the notion in his novel “1984,”that today the intentional misuse of words is named after him: “Orwellian.” Think of abortion, for example: Is “abortion” an issue of “reproductive rights” or is it the “taking of an innocent life”?

Not every new use of words is intentional malpractice, of course. Words often change over time as our culture changes. Sometimes words will change because the culture has changed. Sometimes culture will change because words have changed.

Either way, imagine how much a word or a phrase can change over 250 years.

Here’s one: the word “happiness.” It’s part of the most memorable line in the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
