Think about this… America, by the grace of God, and because, as a young nation, we have always given thanks to God, in less than 200 years America has risen to become a world power. No other nation on earth can claim such a statement!
America was founded on values Judeo-Christian values. Just what does that mean? Along with the belief in liberty, as opposed to the European belief in equality, the Muslim belief in theocracy, and the Eastern belief in social conformity, Judeo-Christian values are what distinguish America from all other countries. That is why American coins feature these two messages: "In God we trust" and "Liberty."
Our Founders and other early Americans studied Hebrew, the language of the Jewish Bible at least as much as Latin and Greek, the language of the New. Yale, founded in 1701, adopted a Hebrew insignia, and Hebrew was compulsory at Harvard until 1787. The words on the Liberty Bell, "Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land," are from the Torah. Vast numbers of Americans took Hebrew names, such as Benjamin Franklin, and Cotton Mather (kattan in Hebrew means "little one" or "younger").
The consequences included a strong Hebrew Bible view of the world, meaning, in part, a strong sense of fighting for earthly justice, an emphasis on laws, a belief in a judging, as well as a loving and forgiving, God, and a belief in the that the Jews are God's chosen people, which all Christians in America identified with.
The significance of this belief throughout American cannot be overstated. It accounts for the mission that Americans have uniquely felt that we are called upon to spread liberty in the world through Gods name.
This sense of mission is why more Americans have died for the liberty of others than any other nation's soldiers.
It is why those who today most identify with the Judeo-Christian essence of America are more likely to believe in the moral worthiness of dying to liberate countries, not only Europe, but Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and others.
That is why America stands alone in protecting two little countries threatened with extinction, Israel and Taiwan. That is why conservative Americans are more likely to believe in American exceptionalism in not seeking a "permission slip" from the United Nations, let alone from Europe to free the oppressed in other nations.
Empires have risen and fallen throughout the millennia, but none as quickly as America. Indeed, comparisons can be made between Israel and America as we have both, as nations, by giving thanks to God, following, and obeying his words, have risen to become world powers. It can also be observed that when we turn our back on God and his teachings, God allows our enemies to destroy us.
America has turned it's back on God by removing prayer from schools, congress, public forums and institutions. Gods' spoken words have become "offensive," and through the dark powers, God's written words are being removed, and replaced by something more sinister. As fewer and fewer people follow like sheep to the slaughter in NOT fighting these dark forces in God's name, we shall all have to suffer the consequences of his wrath.
America is no longer "One nation under God," we are quickly becoming "One nation divided against itself." We are a house divided against itself, and as such, we cannot stand for very long.
I believe that we are now in the "end times," as diseases, famine, and war are dominating the news like no other time in our history. The dark forces have revealed themselves and their plan is clear. Remove God's words, and make it a crime to have them spoken in public venues. Heads of Christians are being cut off if they do not convert to Islam. Christians, like Jews, are being persecuted in his namesake, and president Obama does nothing to prevent the onslaught that is happening now, and will surely happen in America.
Look what president Obama has done to our once great nation, our military, our allies, our economy, and ask yourselves… How could one man's administration destroy what in eight years, what took over 200 hundred years to create? Then ask yourselves… Where is God in our country?
