As we welcome the New Year with all the challenges that we have to face let us renew our commitment to obey God's standard for living. This commitment should give us an optimistic view of the future in spite of the gloom and doom that many are predicting. We also must not overlook that we are at war against the evil forces and that Jesus not only is the Head of the Church but the Supreme Commander that is leading his people in this fight to victory.
Benjamin Franklin Morris' book has been out of print for more than 100 years. If you can find an original copy, it's only because you have looked in the deep recesses of university libraries where the volume is probably collecting dust on dimly lit library shelves. Organizations like the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State have done their best to ignore the content of the massive compilation of original source material found in this book. If Americans ever become aware of the content assembled by the author, the arguments for a secular founding of America will turn to dust.
