I’d love to be wrong about this. I pray I am.
When I was growing up in this country, formerly known as The United States of America, Land of The Free, Home of The Brave. You remember, pre-collapse Rome. I’d always heard my fellow freedom-loving folk talk about “from my cold dead hands”. When the guvment comes for their guns, they will activate and fight for their right to bear arms. They would stand up to tyranny. I know now, without a doubt, that simply will not happen. No. Not only will they hand over their guns nicely, they will thank whichever arm of the luvguv comes to take them and ask if they need a hand loading them into the truck. Sure, there will be a few true bloods tanked and shelled quickly. But as a whole, ehhh no. What a farce my whole American experience has been. I went through public school only hearing and learning of the founding fathers in bits and pieces. I know now why they don’t teach more thoroughly about those men. If kids grew up knowing the things these men said about the future and what was required to maintain a free society, they wouldn’t wait for something as obvious as a gun grab to start protecting their rights. They would continue the old American tradition of fighting for freedom at the first sight of an infringement. But…they didn’t teach. We didn’t defend. And now it’s simply too late. I’m not a defeatist. I don’t want to sound discouraging. I don’t like throwing out black pills like the grim reaper on a parade float. But, the truth tends to sound like whatever truth sounds like when it is uttered; Good, Bad, Sad, Glad. Truth is truth.
The Bible is TRUTH in written form. It has proven itself time and time again, although it never has to, it does simply because truth is always revealed, never hidden. The Word(Bible) was made flesh(Jesus). He was crucified, buried, then rose from death. After showing himself to his followers, He ascended into Heaven. From that time until now, when a person is born again, Christ sends to his people(those who truly believe The Gospel) his Spirit, the Holy Spirit.
The Bible says plainly, “Where the Spirit of The Lord is, there is Liberty.”
Across the entire world, this nation was known as “The Land of The Free”. America was a nation built by men of God. From the pilgrims to the founding fathers; this country was built by men of God; Men full of the Holy Spirit. Thus, along came freedom as the world had never known.
Again, the Bible says, “Where the Spirit of The Lord is, there is Liberty.”
The Spirit of The Lord is disappearing from America. I believe we have seen freedom continue to slip away because as a people, as a nation, we have continued to slip away from God. You can even see this fact in secular statistics. Go peek at the charts of percentages of believers/non-believers over the past 70 years. Don’t take my word for it. Go look for yourself. Furthermore, even those who profess to believe in Christ, are completely unidentifiable outside of their lip service. They have a form of Godliness but nothing real. No power. No separation from worldly concerns and entertainment. Demons are like, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but, who did you say you were again?” Who knows, maybe they aren’t truly believers at all. I see church parking lots full on Sundays. Well, I used to before her majesty, Corona, took the throne. But, a full lot on Sunday means absolutely nothing. I can climb a tree and hang off a branch, does that make me a leaf? No, obviously. Although, I’m absolutely sure God does have a people in this land. They are very few and they are surrounded by wolves in sheeps’ clothing.
No God=No Spirit
No Spirit=No Liberty
It’s really as simply as that.
(Side note: In writing this, and by speaking/speculating opinions on the spiritual state of others, I by no means claim to be anything other than a ‘saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ’ sinner who is seeing my country deteriorate before my very eyes.
