So Help Me God – The Battle for the Heart and Soul of America

Life presents in black and white.  Doesn’t it?  Right and wrong, good and evil, light and dark.  I know metaphorical expressions wear us out, but these well-known comparations suggest for us what is and is not acceptable behavior.  They’re a product of natural law.  Unchanging principles and morality many believe endowed by God.

“A fundamental presupposition of Natural Law is that man’s reasoning power is a special dispensation of the Creator and is closely akin to the rational or reasoning power of the Creator himself.  In other words, man shares with his creator this quality of utilizing a rational approach to solving problems, and the reasoning of the mind will generally lead to common-sense conclusions based on what Jefferson calledthe laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.’“  The 5000 Year Leap : A Miracle That Changed the World(Paperback) – 2011 Edition

Natural law is a precept embraced by our founders based on the thinking and writings of ancient Roman lawyer Cicero.  Cicero defined natural law as true law.

“True law is right reason in agreement with nature; it is of universal application, unchanging and ever-lasting; it summons to duty by its commands, and averts from wrongdoing by its prohibitions…. It is a sin to try to alter this law, nor is it allowable to repeal any part of it, and it is impossible to abolish it entirely.  We cannot be freed from its obligations by senate or people, and we need not look outside ourselves for an expounder or interpreter of it.  And there will not be different laws at Rome and at Athens, or different laws now and in the future, but one eternal and unchangeable law will be valid for all nations and all times, and there will be one master and ruler, that is God, over us all, for he is the author of this law, its promulgator, and its enforcing judge.  Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature, and by reason of this very fact he will suffer the worst punishment.” Cicero, taken from Great Political Thinkers: From Plato to the Present Sixth Edition and quoted in The 5000 Year Leap.

In a civil society, absent written laws, natural law is observed by humankind.  At least by those who choose not to live in breach of humankind’s enduring principles and “the laws of Nature and Nature’s God.”

“(Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.)”  Romans 2:14-15

I stand in good company proclaiming that we arrived in this world knowing right from wrong.  Like freedom, it was written on our hearts.  People argue against that.  Especially if they do not accept the natural order or a Supreme moral authority.  The moral authority that defines right and wrong.  It’s the reason we do not need written laws to know that lying, stealing, and murdering are wrong.  Going against what we inherently know, puts us in a place where people and nations lose their way.  Life without contentment is frustrating.  During our brief time in this world, contentment is impossible if there exists a nagging feeling that what we’re doing is wrong.  Unnaturally wrong.  When our man written laws make the unacceptable acceptable or turn evil to good then, as we say over here in the hills, we are on the rocky road to perdition.

It’s an age-old internal struggle. Spiritual warfare some call it.  We choose to follow a Supreme moral authority or we cast it off and decide for ourselves what’s right and wrong.  We become our moral authority with ever expanding boundaries. When boundaries expand to encompass others, others who may not hold to what we embrace as moral and natural, we see fits of rage and demands that they not be allowed to have a business or even exist in the public square.  Observe today’s America.  People cast off the concept of a Supreme moral authority, what is or is not natural, and then insist that others not only accept their behavior, but also endorse it.  That is where the battle for the heart and soul of not just people, but for a nation ensues.

In the latest effort to rid ourselves of divine influence, Democrat led committees no longer require witnesses to end their sworn oaths with “So Help Me God.” They’ve removed the Supreme authority from the oath.  So, who is it that’s holding them ultimately responsible for truthfulness?  Go read Kelleigh Nelson’s excellent article on the subject.

If you’ve read this far without moving on, maybe your asking what exactly is it I’m babbling on about.  It’s not hard, you know.  I need not provide a list, but I will.  Go read Romans 1.  The letter from the Apostle Paul to the Romans may as well have been addressed to America and for that matter the entirety of Western Civilization.  America cannot exist as America living in the gloomy gray between black and white, light and dark, good and evil.

MARXIST DEMOCRATS DELETE GOD FROM HOUSE PROCEEDINGS

Atheism is a natural and inseparable part of Marxism, of the theory and practice of scientific socialism. Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism. Vladimir Lenin

The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization.  It must be destroyed.  Karl Marx

Communism is a religion that is inspired, directed and motivated by the Devil himself who has declared war against Almighty God. Billy Graham

The campaign and election of President Donald Trump has proven to be the ultimate expose of the Democratic Party’s long ago shift to Marxism.  For decades they’ve hidden their true globalist goals by using euphemistic terms and double speak to lull the citizenry.  A prime example is the “Affordable Care Act,” which is not at all affordable for the middle class when insurance deductibles have risen into multiple thousands. 

The Leftists that were hounded into hiding by the 1950’s “Red Scare” have rebounded with a vengeance and heavily impacted American society.  The demise of God is their main target.  Over a half-century (many believe much longer), the socialists ended up taking over the universities, media, and cultural institutions and permeated them with their “Cultural Marxist totalitarian” ways.  They have become effective “anti-anti-Communists,” whose chief weapon is character assassination.

The actions and demands of the left mimic their desired communist society.  The “Rule of Law” no longer applies. As in communist countries, the corrupt go free to write books and become even more famous, while the innocent either die in prison or are financially broken with ruined reputations.

Democrats Delete God

The socialism of the Democrat Party violates at least three of the Ten Commandments. It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness. But the real core of communism is the hatred of God. 

The majority party in the House of Representatives has removed God.  It has deleted the Almighty from as many Congressional proceedings as possible, including the swearing in of witnesses.

When Congressman Mike Johnson (R-LA) raised a point of parliamentary inquiry as to why witnesses did not say, “so help me God” during their swearing in, Rep. Johnson asked Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) to please have the witnesses do it again including the “so help me God.” Cohen said, “I don’t think it’s necessary and I don’t want to assert my will over other people.”  Then Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) pipes up with, “If any witness objects, he should not be asked to identify himself.  We do not have religious tests for office or for anything else and we should let it go at that.”

Well, excuse the daylights out of me Reps. Cohen and Nadler, but we have used this swearing in for over 200 years.  As Rep. Johnson said, “It goes back to our founding history and it’s been part of our tradition for more than two centuries, and I don’t know that we should abandon it now.”  Watch the two-minute video.

Communists Destroy Religious Freedom

In Communist Red China, they’re closing churches, toppling crosses and even rewriting scripture.  Pictures of Jesus are forcibly replaced with pictures of Xi Jinping.

The official believed to be behind the forcible removal of 1,700 crosses from churches in eastern China has been promoted by the communist government, and it’s feared this move signals that the heightened Christian persecution of China’s 60 million Christians might carry on. 

But the anti-Judeo-Christian culture and worship of God is not just in Communist Red China; it’s throughout Europe and America.  Here is a partial list of religious removals across America.  Atheists are the antagonists, but the Democratic Party has become the communist anti-God movement.

In 1962, the Warren Supreme Court removed prayer from school.  Few realized how that decision monumentally influenced our society. 

Compare that to the fact that kindergarten students in Communist Red China are forced to sign away their religious beliefs.  The Education Bureau of the Chinese district of Lishan has launched a campaign to eradicate religious belief in kindergartens, which includes having the schoolchildren sign a commitment statement promising to avoid religious activities, an actual atheist manifesto.  The commitment statement includes the declaration: “I will adhere to the correct political direction, advocate science, promote atheism, and oppose theism.”  Minors are not allowed into churches, even with their parents.  God is verboten in a communist society.

The Politics of Hate

Elected officials are leading the nation’s youth in the hatred of Jews, Christians and the unborn. Speaker Pelosi actually invited an anti-Israel Imam to lead prayer in our US Congress.  In the past, this same Imam had praised Hamas martyrs, and compared Jews to Nazis

One need only look at the filth spewed by Palestinian Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) who recently disgorged her venom against Israel, Jews and the Holocaust.  Her vilification was directed against Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and America’s President Trump.  It was Tlaib’s reference to a “calming feeling” in relation to the Holocaust’s aftermath that has drawn the most ire and upset.  She defended her support of abolishing Israel with a one-state solution by falsely painting Palestinians as saviors of Jewish refugees.  Here’s the story and reaction.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) referred to the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, as a day in which “some people did something” during her keynote address at a private fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles last March. Please read Muslim Mafia by Chris Gaubatz’ father.

Omar and Tlaib have found themselves embroiled in at least half a dozen scandals, including laughing about al Qaeda on camera, lying that Israelis “occupy” the Hamas-controlled Gaza, following a flagrantly anti-Semitic Instagram account, and hanging out with pro-Palestinian Linda Sarsour and members of CAIR which is a designated terror organization in the United Arab Emirates. Link

With Omar’s continued anti-Semitic verbiage, prominent House Democrats negotiated with party leaders to enact some sort of measure against her remarks. Pelosi settled on watering down her critique of anti-Semitism as much as possible. The resolution listed “Jews” seventh in their condemnation of racism, right in between “other people of color” and “Muslims.” 

Then there’s the homosexual pro-abortion member of Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives, Brian Sims, who posted a self-incriminating video showing himself verbally assaulting an elderly Catholic woman praying the rosary in a peaceful protest outside a Planned Parenthood abortion mill in his district, calling her an “old white lady” who was doing something “disgusting.” 

She was simply advocating for the lives of preborn human beings and women who are considering abortion. He also attempted doxing of teenagers for doing the same and it took the internet by storm.

Who in Pennsylvania elected this man who feels he can get in the faces of those who believe life is precious and are fighting for the unborn babies who feel the pain of their own murder every time one of them is aborted?

At least a thousand pro-life protestors gathered on the spot where state representative Brian Sims filmed himself harassing a peaceful woman praying outside the clinic to save the lives of unborn babies.  Link

China’s Dying Rooms

The Dying Rooms of China are no different than the dying rooms of America where our unborn children are murdered daily by the thousands, but the reality is we’ve moved into the same Chinese infanticide where we

will murder children who have been born alive after abortions, letting them die alone in closed rooms.  When Obama was in the Illinois legislature, he voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA) several times.  He preferred these babies died alone in back rooms after they survived murder by their mothers.  The same is in China, and we’re moving into that ungodly, evil realm.

The transcript from the 1995 BBC television documentary tells the story.  Those infants who were about one year old, or even younger, were tied to beds at night to die. Once, an infant’s fingers and hand were eaten by rats. You can see how those children suffered.

Producers/directors Brian Woods and Kate Blewett uncovered the systematic neglect of abandoned babies in Chinese state-run orphanages. They found “dark rooms” where the weakest and least liked children are left to die. These are known as “The Dying Rooms.” China’s one-child policy, now they’re allowing two, created a race where most families desired boys and therefore parents were forced to abandon their babies. Their unfortunate and tragic lives are left at the mercy of these orphanages where their sad fate is ultimately decided by the staff and ignored by the government.  No one can watch these documentaries and tell me this ungodly evil is not coming quickly to America.

Marx and Satan

The late Reverend Richard Wurmbrand spent 14 years as a prisoner of Nicolae Ceausescu’s communist government in Romania, where he was persecuted for his faith in Jesus Christ.  His wife Sabina also spent years in communist prisons.  Finally released, he researched Karl Marx and the Communist doctrines he developed.

While communism portrays itself as a noble endeavor for the good of mankind, and claims an atheistic view, the Pastor exposes its true roots, revealing that Karl Marx and the fathers of the modern Communist/Socialist movements were inspired by the powers of darkness.  Wurmbrand demonstrates how the “prince of darkness” gave these men the “sword” by which they have terrorized the nations. The Pastor proves that this movement is not simply the work of greedy men, hungry for wealth and power, but is “after the working of Satan” with the intent of destroying mankind. 

One comment of his book said there are numerous similarities between the rhetoric of feminists, social justice warriors, communists/Marxists, atheists, “regressives,” liberals and the satanic agenda.  She pegged it!

Richard Wurmbrand’s 1986 book, Marx and Satan, gives all the proof, including the infiltration of liberation theology into both Christian churches and synagogues.  Those of us who worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are the targets of the “evil one.”

Wurmbrand’s Senate Testimony

In 1966, before the U.S. Senate, 89th Congress, Pastor Wurmbrand testified about the torture he and his fellow Christians received in communist Romania prisons.  I would urge everyone who believes in the Almighty to read the transcript.  The Pastor had been in America for only a month when he appeared before the Senate, and he could never again wear shoes because of the beatings on the bottom of his feet.  He bared his back and showed the multiple scars from brutality.

He told the Senators that he could not tell the full details of what was done to believers because they would run screaming from the room.  Please read the transcript.  He tells that in the prison of Piteshti, the Communists would force a very religious prisoner to be “baptized” daily by putting his head into the barrel in which his fellow sufferers had fulfilled their necessities, meanwhile, obliging the other prisoners to sing the baptismal service.  And priests and pastors were compelled in the Romanian prison of Piteshti to say Mass over excrement and urine. Why? Wurmbrand asks, were Christians tortured into taking Communion with these as the elements? Why such an obscene mockery of religions?

The depths of satanic depravity were evident. If, in fact, true Marxism and Communism deny both heaven and hell, why in Romanian and Soviet Union prisons were nuns who would not deny their faith, raped anally, and Baptist girls had oral sex forced on them. Using Luciferian techniques, the communists made martyrs die blaspheming because of the delirium provoked by torture.

Conclusion

As George Washington said, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”

Jewish immigrant from Poland, Haym Solomon, who converted French loans to cash to finance the American Revolution.  He raised $20,000 for the Continental Army on request from General Washington, and he personally supported members of the Continental Congress such as James Madison.  He died a pauper at age 45 and he was never repaid by the new government he supported, although it was indebted to him.  He was a Jewish American patriot whose invaluable support of the new nation of freedom and liberty was the goal of this Godly man.  I believe this Jewish man helped to save our Republic. 

John Adams said, “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom.” No, America’s children haven’t a clue.  We must stand for liberty.

It is our responsibility to once again save our Representative Republic from the democratic socialists and communists who hate the God both Jews and Christians worship.  Lord hear our prayers.
