“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

America as the Obama-nation

"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." -- The American Declaration of Independence (1776)

I think America has made a grave mistake electing Barack Obama as President. His commitment to the slaughter of innocents under the misguided and corrupt perception of women’s right to choose abortion for their unwanted children could arouse God’s judgement on the nation. Over 40-million children have been aborted ― with full sanction of the state ― since the infamous Supreme Court Roe v Wade decision of 1973.

Under the next administration, filled with abortion ideologues, it will truly be an Obama-nation where the brutality will not only continue but increase.

Make no mistake: God will not be mocked. America’s abortion holocaust is a stench to the Almighty. The blood of millions of unborn children cries out from the ground, reaching heaven to indict America. God loves America but the killing cannot continue without provoking His wrath.

Thomas Jefferson said, "Indeed I tremble for m
y country when I reflect that God is just."

I have such love for the vision upon which America was founded, but I tremble too. The first Right mentioned in the Declaration of Independence is the "Right to Life." The Right to Life is the highest human right. It is the basis upon which of all other human rights are built. If the Right to Life is not guaranteed then all other human rights become arbitrary and uncertain. The second Right mentioned in the Declaration of Independence is "Liberty." Where is the liberty in abortion? Licence is vastly different from liberty; the abuse of freedom is not freedom. The third Right identified in the Declaration is the Right to the pursuit of happiness, not the right to happiness. The pursuit of happiness must never be sought on the backs of other human life. That is neither legitimate happiness or liberty ― it is the cruel tyranny of unbridled selfishness.

All these are "self-evident truths" that Barack Obama and his pro-abortion advisers, Cabinet and entourage deny. And the American people elected him! They knew this about Obama(or should have known this) and still, they put him into the White House.

Months before the 2008 election, Barack O
bama told a Planned Parenthood convention that the first thing he would do as President would be to sign into law a Freedom of Choice Act. He did not have the honesty to define the choice.

We know what the choosing is about. It is the so-called freedom to choice to kill one’s own unborn child. It is nothing less than the choice between life and death. The choice sides with those who possess power over those who are powerless. The blood of millions upon millions of unborn children cry out to the Almighty. God may be patient but He has his limits.

Will Obama’s Freedom of Choice Act extend to terminally/incurably ill people, or severely disabled? Why not? If America will legally enshrine the freedom to choose death for another, why not extend the freedom to choose death for oneself? There’s a certain twisted flow to the dark logic in Obama’s Freedom of Choice Act.

There are abortion clinics in cities across America to end the lives of unborn children. Why not clinics across the nation to assist the suicides of terminally or chronically ill people? Under the liberal ideal where autonomy and “choosing” reigns supreme, the extension is so easy to make. And if the Freedom of Choice Act is extended to the terminally/chronically ill and disabled ... then why not the mentally ill or severely depressed? Oh yes, the depressed person could say “My emotional pain is as intolerable as physical pain.” And are you or I to say it is not?!

Do you see the predicament America is in? Things have gone too far. Abortion must stop and the drift toward acceptance of euthanasia must be stopped. America faces a very real risk of God’s judgement! I believe that the next few years will prove to be pivotal for nothing less than America’s heart and soul.

If the heart and soul America’s founders envisioned dies a different America will emerge into the 21st Century. It will be different. You may not like the Obama-nation.
