WW I & II

As a student, I liked history, but American history seemed to be dull and uninteresting.  It was not until the 1990's that I discovered why.  It had been perverted, i.e., it had been secularized, stripped of it spiritual vision.  There was a pall of death over it.  I had become a Christian at about 7 years old, and I also felt an intense admiration and loyalty to America, and to science, which I knew was "American".  But I could not put either America or science together with being a Christian -- because I had been taught that America was founded as a secular nation, and that science was a secular thing. 

I discovered very early on that science is indeed a very Biblical thing, but it was not until the early 1990's that I viewed the video, America's Godly Heritage, and read Original Intent, both by David Barton, which opened my eyes to the fact that due process in civil law, the principles of our Declaration of Independence and of our Constitution, were right out of Scriptural principles.  They could not have been otherwise. 

See also, www.hillsdale.edu and take their free online course on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.  Start with the 5-session introductory course, and then the 10-session regular course.     SUPERB education in Godly America. 

Articles have been published in old issues of Emmaus News, many of which are put together in Reason, Revelation, & Politics, available in the Shopping Mall.   See also items in the Politics Library

Western Christians must recover their public trust in God, and retake the public arena for God.  The alternative is for Western Civ. to complete its demise, taking with it all we know of political and religious freedom.  We are becoming apathetic slaves on a government plantation.   Only the Biblical worldview can sustain, not only personal, but political freedom.

Miscellaneous

** The Quigley Formula vs. the Jesus Formula  --  E. Fox commentary on a talk by G. Edward Griffin on the globalist  conspiracy.  How will Christians retake Western Civ?     

** WITNESS - by Whittaker Chambers...   Chambers is one of the great heroes of the 20th century -- leaving the Communist underground to expose the Communist infiltration, standing almost alone through severe Congressional investigations, and writing a stunning book to tell the story....   He understood the spiritual warfare in which he was engaged better than almost anyone of the time, and paid a deep price for his honesty.  And won more powerful prize.   Reading WITNESS is like reading the Lord of the Rings in real time.    Yes, there was (still is) an evil empire (see "Conspiracy" files).      E. Fox 

** WHAT (and WHO) CAUSED the TWIN TOWERS to FALL???  - a short course in High School Physics....  & HIGH TREASON   by E. Fox  

Only in America...   by a Canadian...   A slightly humorous, but tragic comment on the US of A.   It is not a joke because there is too much truth in it.   America is being run by a pack of liars, but we the cowardly people let them get away with it.    Use the Sword of the Spirit - reason and revelation welded back to back.

Russian Footprints - Ion Mahai Pacepa - highest Communist defector to the West tells how Soviet Communists infiltrated America and still control our thinking through their hidden influence in the media, politics, education, etc.   I think he is correct.  But an awakening Christian population will change that -- hopefully sooner rather than later.   See also Olavo de Carvalho on a similar theme.   E. Fox.     
  

The Declaration of Independence gave liberty not alone to the people of this country, but hope to all the world, for all future time.  It was that which gave promise that in due time the weights would be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance. 

This is the sentiment embodied in the Declaration of Independence....  I would rather be assassinated on this spot than surrender it. 

On April 15, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln died, shot the night before in Ford's Theater by John Wilkes Booth, just five days after the Civil War ended.  Over a half a million lost their lives in that War.  President Lincoln, whose last act in office was to sign the bill placing "In God We Trust" on our national coins, declared the above in a speech at Independence Hall, Philadelphia, 1861:

 More attributed to Abraham Lincoln....

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the s
trong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage
by taking away people's initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them
what they could and should do for themselves.

Frederick the Great on the American Revolution --   Also the President of Yale....   

 

 See also German author......

 

Was Thomas Jefferson a Christian?  

John Adams & Jacob Duche' --  John Adams was not an orthodox Christian, but he was not a Deist.  He believed that we are both corporately and personally responsible before God, our Creator and Sovereign, and that God very much involved Himself in the affairs of the world.  It would be accurate to say that Adams was theologically a unitarian, not a trinitarian, but, in that respect, believing that we owe political obedience and faithfulness to our Creator, was within the Biblical worldview.

Columbus and Jesus --

American Minute -- clips from history on America's Biblical Heritage -

Patton on Prayer -- Prayer in the trenches --- one of the most famous prayers of WW II.   And the thoughts on prayer from one of the best generals. 

Deist Minimum - Avery Cardinal Dulles -- on religion of American founding fathers.  Was America founded as a Christian nation?

George Washington

** George Washington's God --  by Michael Novak and Jana Novak  --  one of the best books out on the Christian religion behind the founding of America, dispelling the misinformation that our founding fathers were not Christian but deist.   Review by E. Fox.   See below, Was GW a Christian? 

The Faith of George Washington -- by Michael McManus 

Was George Washington a Christian? -- Jay Haug - says "Yes..."  (see above, G W's God)

John Adams -- "Duty is ours, outcomes belong to God."   John Adams (as opposed to his cousin, Sam) was not a Christian, perhaps more a unitarian, and does not sound like a deist (who would not suppose God intervening in outcomes).  He was well within the Biblical worldview -- a creator God who holds us personally and corporately morally responsible to His law.   Perhaps "Unitarian" would fit.  

Margaret Thatcher was born OCTOBER 13, 1925.
        She was the first woman Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. While traveling through New York City in 1996, Margaret Thatcher had an interview with Joseph A. Cannon, which was printed in Human Events.
        She stated:  "The Decalogue-Ten Commandments-are addressed to each and every person. This is the origin of our common humanity and of the sanctity of the individual.  Each one has a duty to try to carry out those commandments. You don't get that in any other political creed...It is personal liberty with personal responsibility."
        Margaret Thatcher continued:   "Responsibility to your parents, to your children, to your God. This really binds us together in a way that nothing else does. If you accept freedom, you've got to have principles about the responsibility. You can't do this without a biblical foundation."
        Margaret Thatcher concluded regarding America:   "Your Founding Fathers came over with that. They came over with the doctrines of the New Testament as well as the Old. They looked after one another, not only as a matter of necessity, but as a matter of duty to their God. There is no other country in the world which started that way."

             The sad part of her statement is that American Christians never did much, other than occasional statements, to explain why this is true, why we will never have stable freedom except under the law and grace of God.  We are hoping to help remedy that failure here in the Road to Emmaus.  See Biblical Government & related issues.   

Deism & the Declaration of Independence -  Interview with David Barton.  Was Thomas Jefferson a deist?  Did he in his actions show an animosity toward Christianity?   What was his theology and Christology?

Mexifornia -- How to destroy a nation.... 

Citizens or Subjects?  Constitutional Republic or Administrative Tyranny?  -- Edward J. Erler at Hillsdale College, Michigan -- on the meaning of American citizenship vs. British subjectship. 
        This is a superb analysis of another facet of the Immigration Problem, and its connection to the globalist treason being perpetrated upon us -- treason because it is being done dishonestly, with subversion of public debate -- and because it is anti-Christ -- the giver of our freedom to begin with.

Will the North American Union be American Patriots' Last Stand? -- Edwin Vieira --  superb Constitutional scholar explains the legal status of the Declaration of Independence. 
        Pursuit of the North American Union is, in my humble opinion,  nothing short of high treason -- a criminal attempt to subvert the sovereignty of the United States.

** William L. Shirer, Hitler, and a piece of our lives...   E. Fox

** Whaddya Mean, "America is not a Christian Nation"?  --  "A bipartisan group of 25 members of the House of Representatives earlier this month submitted H.Res. 397, which calls on Congress to affirm "the rich spiritual and religious history of our nation's founding and subsequent history" and to designate the first week of May as America's Spiritual Heritage Week for 'the appreciation of and education on America's history of religious faith.'"
