It is unlikely that you or I will be awarded a Nobel Prize for our contribution to society nor will we ever receive world or national recognition for our good deeds. Should that stop us from getting involved in making life better for others? I sure hope not.

By now you are aware we are engaged in a cultural war where the sides are becoming more defined. There are only two options that people may choose from; the side of right or the side of wrong.  Our generation is no different than those of Colonial times who also had to make a choice whether they were on the side of the tyrannical British Crown or with those who saw no other choice than to rebel and choose liberty or death rather than a life of slavery.

Jesus was very clear when He said there comes a time when social conditions are such they demand all from us, " Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it" (Luke 17:33). This definitely reveals there is no comfort zone for those who must make the difference for the good of all. There are many opportunities to get involved to make life better even though the list may seem too overwhelming.  All that is needed is to use your eyes and ears to what's around you and you will know what needs to be done; go for it.  

All areas should be considered including politics. It is not enough to scream at corrupt politicians, nor is it enough to elect individuals who say what people want to hear in their campaign speeches but once in office they betray their pledges of honesty and integrity. These political scavengers come from both political parties as well as those who run as independents. This corrupt political breed has been growing in our country for over one hundred years and could care less about the good in people. For them it's all about their agendas and ideologies which are an abomination to the memory of those who gave us this great country. Let our hearts be moved once again by their words and character as we read the last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence:

"We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in general Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliance, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

These men cared for their generation and future generations; they wanted to leave a lasting legacy, they were clearly not self-centered or power hungry. Did they appeal to any foreign power for their help? No, first and foremost they appealed to the "Supreme Judge of the world." Did they depend upon their limited human resources and weapons for protection? No, but rather "with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence."

As much as we admire the uniqueness of the U.S. Constitution, who many nowadays want to destroy, the colonists were not motivated by a great document such as the Constitution because it did not exist. Their inspiration came from the greatest document that all of humanity can have access to. Pay close attention to the words of James Madison: "The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded." Did you get that? The Laws of God are the foundation for all of the social institutions of these United States of America.

Most Colonists and the Founding Fathers took God's Word very seriously; they knew they could not build a nation apart from the biblical precepts or without publicly acknowledging The Sovereignty of God as the Supreme Ruler and their providential protector.

The Founding Father's understanding of fundamental biblical truths gave them an insight on how to structure the civil government to effectively be the servant of the people not the other way around as it is now. They established three branches of government to protect against unrestrained pursuit of their own self-interests and their hunger for absolute power. They established checks and balances to keep a rein on those branches from becoming a den of robbers and promoters of infanticide and all kinds of unspeakable immorality. 

How can we get back to good government, science, technology, humanities, commerce and education? First we must acknowledge that America is almost in total moral decay, this includes the church. We must see that there is an urgency to get involved. Second, we must accept the fact that there is no other alternative for America's future other than restoring her to a godly heritage. Consider the words of Abraham Lincoln spoken at his first inaugural address: "Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust in the best way all our present difficulty." Third, once again we must understand the value of reaching those who are lost with the gospel of the Kingdom of God and the call to God's people to be pro-active in bringing this nation under God's government once again.
There are only two choices; we either leave a legacy of a nation that will be governed by the laws of God or a legacy of tyranny as a result of the laws of men which will ultimately deliver the final blow of destruction to this country which was once a beacon of light to the nations of the world. Knowing that your decision will determine the legacy you will bequeath to future generations; what will your choice be?
