2 1 Tim 2:1-4 1 First, I tell you to pray for all people, asking God for what they need and being thankful to him. 2 Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God. 3 This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to know the truth. Do you pray America?

3 “America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.” Psa. 9:17 The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God. 1835

4 How To Destroy America Destroy Her Faith in God (Christianity). Destroy Biblical marriage/divorce. Destroy the Biblical role of gov’t. Christians remain silent/retreat Start with the schools Revise American history “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” Abraham Lincoln Judg 2: After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals.

5 “I am much afraid that schools will prove to be great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt.” America’s God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations,1994, p Martin Luther U.S. Supreme Court 1962: Engel v. Vitale school prayer outlawed 1963: Murray v. Curlett Bible-reading outlawed 1980: Stone v. Graham Ten commandments outlawed

6 Columbia University’s Dr. John Dewey, atheist, evolutionist, and founder of the American Humanist Association, introduced “Progressive Education” into the American school system early in the 20th century. He believed: “There is no God and there is no soul. Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion [Christianity]. With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable truth is also dead and buried. There is no room for fixed, natural law or moral absolutes.” Biologist Julian Huxley: “I use the word ‘Humanist’ to mean someone who believes that man... his body, his mind, and his soul were not supernaturally created but are all products of evolution.”

7 Sir Arthur Keith, anthropologist, evolutionist, Evolution and Ethics summarized the influence of evolution on Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime: To see evolutionary measures and tribal morality being applied vigorously to the affairs of a great modern nation, we must turn again to Germany of We see Hitler devoutly convinced that evolution produces the only real basis for a national policy.... The means he adopted to secure the destiny of his race and people were organized slaughter, which has drenched Europe in blood.... Such conduct is highly immoral as measured by every scale of ethics, yet Germany justifies it; it is consonant with tribal or evolutionary morality. Germany... is demonstrating to the world, in their naked ferocity, the methods of evolution... The German Fuhrer... is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution.

8 How To Destroy America Destroy Her Faith in God (Christianity). Start with the schools Revise American history “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” Abraham Lincoln Arthur M. Schlesinger wrote in “The Disuniting of America:” “History is to a nation... as memory is to an individual. An individual deprived of memory becomes disoriented and lost, not knowing where he has been or where he is going, so a nation denied a conception of its past will be disabled in dealing with its present and future.” Walter E. Williams, “America’s Amnesia,” WorldNetDaily. Judg 2:10,12 10 After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. 12 They forsook the Lord, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of Egypt. nor what He had done for Israel.

9 Evolution served as the rationale for the genocidal tyrannies of these leaders Rom 3: "Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 ruin and misery mark their ways, 17 and the way of peace they do not know." 18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes." and counting William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania summed it all up: “Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.”

10 “The world’s greatest political success formula. In a little over a century, this formula allowed a small segment of the human family—less than six percent—to become the richest industrial nation on earth. It allowed them to originate more than half of the world’s total production and enjoy the highest standard of living in the world. It also produced a very generous people. No nation in all the recorded annals of the past has shared so much of its wealth with every other nation as has the United States of America.” Washington: The National Center for Constitutional Studies, 1985, p. 1.

11 Two of the best known school books in the history of American education were the 18th century New England Primer and the 19th century McGuffey Readers. It is estimated that at least 120 million copies of McGuffey's Readers were sold between 1836 and Henry Steele Commager, Jr. Columbia University Historian, educator and scholar (also taught at Harvard & University of Chicago) wrote in the intro. For a paperback reissue:

12 What is most impressive in the McGuffey readers is the morality. From the First Reader through the Sixth, the morality is pervasive and insistent, there is rarely a page but addresses itself to some moral problem, points up some moral lesson – industry,sobriety, thrift, propriety, modesty, punctuality – these were essential virtues and those who practiced them were sure of success…The world of McGuffeys was a world where no one questioned the truths of the Bible, or their relevance to every day conduct.” “That our children, today, are better taught than were their luckless predecessors is generally conceded, though we are sometimes puzzled that we have not produced a generation of statesman as distinguished as the founding fathers.”

13 “I am convinced that the battleground for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teacher who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preacher, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subjects they teach regardless of the educational level – preschool daycare or large state university….” John Dunphy

14 The classroom must and will Become an arena of conflict between the old and the new – the rotting corpse of Christianity together with all its adjacent evils and misery and the new new faith of humanism, resplendent in its promise of a world in which the never realized Christian idea of “love thy neighbor” will be finally achieved.” (John Dunphy, A Religion for a New Age, THE HUMANIST, Jan-Feb, 1983, p. 26) John Dunphy

Among young non-Christians, nine out of the top 12 perceptions were negative. ”

16 Image courtesy ofBig Stock Photo. click forinfo Image courtesy ofBig Stock Photo. click forinfo A New Generation Expresses its Skepticism and Frustration with Christianity Sept. 24, 2007 Common negative perceptions include that present-day Christianity is judgmental (87%), hypocritical (85%), old- fashioned (78%), and too involved in politics (75%) - representing large proportions of young outsiders who attach these negative labels to Christians. The most common favorable perceptions were that Christianity teaches the same basic ideas as other religions (82%), has good values and principles (76%), is friendly (71%), and is a faith they respect (55%). “One reason that Christianity’s image is changing is due to the shifting faith allegiances of Americans. Simply put, each new generation has a larger share of people who are not Christians (that is, atheists, agnostics, people associated with another faith, or those who have essentially no faith orientation).”

17 “Spiritually contented people are dangerous for a variety of reasons. They don’t make reliable servants because they won’t jump at every command. They test what is requested against a code of moral principal. Those who are spiritually secure can’t easily be driven to sacrifice family relations.” p. 45

18 Daniel Webster, 1903 “If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity.” Daniel Webster 2 term Congressman

19 “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness….”

20 LAW OF THE LAND Is Declaration of Independence unconstitutional? School district sued for censoring founding documents, state constitutions In a season typified by lawsuits against manger scenes, crosses and even the words "Merry Christmas," a California case is taking the "separation of church and state" one step further – dealing with whether it's unconstitutional to read the Declaration of Independence in public school.

21 K The principle of “checks and balances” which they termed the “Separation of Powers” came from Isa. 33:22 “For the Lord is our judge (establishing the judiciary); “the Lord is our lawgiver” (establishing the legislature); “the Lord is our king” (establishing the executive). Now historians are discovering that the Bible, perhaps more than the Constitution is our founding document." — Newsweek December 27, 1982

22 James Madison, known as the “Chief Architect of the Constitution,” “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, and to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

23 “I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that "except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.” Dan 4:17 "'The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.'
