Spiritual Political Warfare 19
20 We are in spiritual political warfare Liberals want to replace the hope and promise of the Kingdom with control of statism in this system of things.
21 The Church must organize to: Educate Mobilize and Activate individuals to defend Biblical truths
22 This has happened before: : a 40-year conservative cycle 1974-historically similar to historically similar to 2008 In 1974, Christian Right was born. Led new grassroots movement – the foundation for Ronald Reagan.
23 RISE & FALL OF THE LAST CONVSERVATIVE CYCLE
24 God Under Attack God is under attack because liberals want to destroy our independence from the state. Liberals declare through media, talk shows and magazines that Christianity is losing influence in this country. Attempting to be self-prophetic.

26 Strategic Liberal Process The strategic process, by which liberals (intended or unintended) will enslave individuals to government, are incremental actions seeming harmless and necessary.
27 The process in play includes: –Universal health care –Mandatory green initiatives –Control of manufacturing and banking Strategic Liberal Process
28 Real Life Consequences of Socialism The proposed universal health care plan of 1993 contained provisions for a $5,000 fine and 5 years in jail for going outside the system for services.

31 POLITICAL INDEX SCALE CONSERVATIVE VS. LIBERAL
32 PUBLIC OPINION PERCENTAGES
33 Beguilement of one world economic coordination: World is primarily socialistic Public exists to serve the state The State purports to take care of the public
34 Socialistic governments cannot compete with a free enterprise nation of any size. Therefore, they must make them compromise.
35 GERMANY VS. CHINA ANNUAL GDP
36 Coordination leads to a one world socialistic order.
37 What are the signs of destructive coordination? U.N. Treaties (claiming it belongs to the world): Law of the sea* Environment (Kyoto Protocol) Internet Labor Money & Banking
38 G-7 and International Monetary Fund (IMF) Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of England, advocated a one world banking system using the IMF as the worlds FDIC.
39 China is: Developing its own middle class to alleviate need for U.S. consumption. Developing the Yuan as regional currency backed by copper. Pursuing new one world currency managed by the U.N.
40 American Exceptionalism: Unique nation founded on principles and ideas of freedom. Only country in world where one is free to do anything, not against the law, without government permission.
41 American Exceptionalism: Because in America, the citizen is sovereign over the state. Modern liberalism believes government is god and sovereign over man.
42 American Exceptionalism: Dictatorships & monarchies believe that man can be both god & government and sovereign over man. Islam believes god is government and sovereign over man.
43 American Exceptionalism: America is the only country founded on the principle that God is sovereign over both man & government and that man is sovereign over government.
44 Why do some cultures hate us? They dont recognize mans individual connection to God. Tribal governments control by tribal birth. Privileged governments control by privileged birth.
45 This is in direct conflict with man pursuing Gods individual purpose in his life. Freedom breaks down the lines of government control and threatens their authority.
46 I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. Thomas Jefferson

53 They fought for their beliefs city-by-city and state-by state.
54 Activists need something to do to extend themselves one step at a time. We must : Define ourselves and our positions simply Impact our sphere of influence Organize Educate the public Establish sense of urgency Recruit, enlist support, build
55 Goals: Maintain individual sovereignty over the state. Educate the public on consequences of socialism. Resist U.S. and one world socialism.
56 Goals: Enhance American private sector. Protect religious liberty. Defend individual freedoms.
