Imagine this: You’re Meeting with George Washington in 20 minutes, and he wants to know what has happened to his country – What will you say?
Picture this…What if I told you that in 20 minutes you are going to be sitting at a table next to George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. By some miracle of God, they were going to come back to life for one hour to inquire of you the state of their most beloved and cherished country they left to us 238 years ago.
It was left up to you to explain to them the state of our nation today and why we are in the state our country is in.
This meeting will determine for our Founding Forefathers if what they sacrificed, fought (at so great a cost) and gave their lives in the service of, was worth it. If the posterity that they entrusted their beloved country to had taken up the task with honor as to the preservation of our freedoms as a nation, our morals, principles, and the Christian values this country was founded upon.
Think about it for a moment…
You would have to explain to them how 238 years later this nation was not the same country that our Founding Forefathers gave us.
You would have to explain how 3,700 babies are murdered by their own mothers every day in this country, that now men marry men and women marry women, and how children are violated everyday by sexual predators.
You would have to explain to them how blasphemy, fornication (sex outside of marriage – 1 Corinthians 6:9) and lewdness are common place in our society as a whole and yet despite all this, the pulpits in America (for the most part) remain silent and the church has become a reproach to the nation (See Jeremiah 23; Matthew 23).
You would have to tell them that drinking, gambling, lying, stealing, and doing whatever you want as long as it feels good to you, have become the status quo, instead of a love for God, country, your fellow man, and to do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Luke 6:31).
You would have to convey to them that the American people (for the most part) have stood down, tolerated, and enabled a tyrannical president and his administration, who are willfully and knowingly destroying America.
You would even have to explain to them how the federal government has their hooks into nearly every portion of our lives, even to the point where if you want to fish in your own lake outside your backdoor, build a fire outside your front door, or even own a gun (which the Second Amendment was established to guarantee a protection of that right), you now have to ask for and receive the government’s permission by getting a permit.
What do you think after telling them all this would be the look on their faces? Would it be sadness? Disbelief? Or shame? Would George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin experience deep sorrow in their hearts that they sacrificed so much for nothing?
Was this the posterity that they fought so much for? A cowardly bunch of immoral men and women who stood down to tyranny, fell to immorality, and let the government control every angle of their lives? What would they be thinking after they heard all this? I can only imagine.
The disgrace the American people have brought upon our forbearers because of our immorality and unwillingness to fight the same battles they had to fight is absolutely shameful. After bringing our Founding Forefathers this news, the only thing a reasonable person could do would be to bow their head in shame.
What a disgrace to them and their sacrifice; not to mention the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have, fought, bled, and died to preserve this great nation since then.
What would our Founding Fathers do in your position if they switched places with you today? If they had the opportunity to right the wrongs and fight against immorality and all forms of Tyranny, how would they act? What would they do? Would they have let things get so bad? Would they have tolerated these long trains of abuses?
History answers that question quickly enough – Absolutely not!
What is wrong with the America of today? The answer is that she left her first love, namely Jesus Christ (Revelation 2:4), the Rock of our salvation and the principles of Christianity (the foundation of our government – Common Law).
So, will this sad little story be America’s end? Is this how we will go down in history, as a cowardice group of individuals who stood back while lawlessness and tyranny overtook our lives.
The story is not finished America. The book is not complete. We have an opportunity to change the final chapter, but the choice is up to you.
We need men and women like Moses, David, Daniel, Deborah, Ruth, Esther, and Elijah. We need John the Baptists and Pauls. America needs you! If not now, then when? If not you, then who?
Remember, as John Adams said,
“Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”
