Great News For Evangelical Christians

If you would like to say goodbye forever to establishment Republicans, and be a part of a movement that better represents our core values and beliefs, there seems to be hope…

Emboldened Bannon enlists evangelicals to take on McConnell, entire GOP establishment

By Joseph Weber, Fox News

Steve Bannon: Senator Corker is an absolute disgrace
Steve Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, on Saturday rallied evangelicals and other base supporters, urging them to defeat the Republican establishment as they recently did in Alabama and boldly predicting a commanding Trump re-election victory.
“They fear you because they understand you’ve had a belly full of it, and you’re taking your country back,” Bannon told social conservatives at the annual Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. “They understand you’re the transmission of the best values of the Judeo-Christian West.”
Bannon was able to channel his and his followers’ long-held distain for the Washington establishment into enough votes to help Trump in his 2016 White House victory.

His return to Breitbart News, after leaving the White House last month, and his all-out effort to help conservative firebrand Judge Roy Moore last month defeat establishment candidate Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama’s recent special GOP Senate election has empowered him to take on others — including Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and retiring Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker.
“In Alabama, the elites, the permanent political class as personified by Mitch McConnell, raised more than $30 million to go after good and righteous man Roy Moore,” Bannon told the crowd.
“The one thing we proved in Alabama, and you guys proved, is that more than anything else money doesn’t matter anymore,” Bannon continued. “In the days of the digital era … a good man with good ideas and good people behind him can beat any amount of money.”
Bannon has now turned much of his attention on McConnell, the Kentucky Republican who is the standard-bearer for the GOP establishment. Like Trump, Bannon is upset that McConnell has thus far failed to execute the president’s conservative legislative agenda, particularly repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
Though Trump has publically criticized McConnell’s efforts and turned to congressional Democrats for a legislative win, Fox News confirmed Saturday that they are scheduled to meet next week to discuss a path forward.
Bannon on Saturday also came to Trump’s side in his battle with Corker, who has questioned Trump’s ability to lead the country.
“Bob Corker, a real piece of work,” said Bannon, who suggested the senator isn’t seeking re-election in 2018 because he knows he’’ll lose and suggested that GOP senators who didn’t chastise Corker for disrespecting the presidency could also be targeted for defeat.
Bannon said “the populist, nationalist, conservative revolt that drove Judge Moore to victory, that will drive 15 candidates to victory in 2018” will also give Trump 400 electoral votes in 2020.

The Day The NFL Died

Like many people, I have enjoyed professional football for decades and since childhood.  No longer folks.  I will pour my heart into the Lord’s work on the Lord’s day even more so.  For players to receive ridiculous salaries in the millions and for owners to rake in their billions, and refuse to stand for the National Anthem prior to a game is despicable.  In the Dallas franchise, every player and the owner, took a knee during the National Anthem.  If this is America’s team, we ought to cry.  Police officers and war veterans died defending this nation, and one quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, recently wore socks depicting the police as pigs.  This is a national disgrace.  Is the implosion in the NFL a microcosm of America?  These athletes who throw the National Anthem under the bus are extremely negative role models for our young people.  The National Football League (NFL) has fallen right into the playbook of Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals, promoting class warfare.  Marxism, communism and socialism all promote their ideologies in order to neutralize a nation under the power of elitists.

It is realized that there are many injustices in the United States of America as in all nations.  But for players to wear clothing condemning all police officers because of the minority of “bad apples,” is polarizing, dividing, disrespecting, and hateful.  To sit out the National Anthem because you feel wronged somewhere in your life, further divides this nation in the one arena where we should be united.  The National Anthem is one of the last bastions of glue that holds us together, and the left desires to destroy it as well.  I do, however, thank the lame, stand for nothing, compromising NFL for making my decision to forever ignore them an easy one.  I applaud their former supporters who have already burned their memorophilia, including expensive jerseys and innumerable other items.

“The NFL (No Fans Left?) has turned into an anti American political propaganda tool for the left.”   -Rush Limbaugh

The good news is perhaps this will be a priority check and a wake up call for the things that matter most.  Instead of “fans” (“fans” is short for fanatic) filling the stadiums on Sunday, perhaps they can rediscover the church and once again worship the Lord on the Lord’s Day.

Blessings, Pastor Steve

The Day the NFL Died

February 3, 1959 is the “day the music died.” That’s the day Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper were killed when their plane crashed and burned in an Iowa cornfield, a day immortalized in Don McLean’s “Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie.”
September 24, 2017 will go down in history as the day the NFL died. It died because its pampered, babied, overgrown millionaires showed an utter lack of respect for their country and their flag and insulted every working American who buys tickets to watch them play a game.
It died because players, coaches, and owners alike insulted a country that gave them the opportunity to make an obscene amount of money that almost everyone in the stands can only dream of. They insulted a supposedly racist country in which African-American athletes make millions of dollars playing in a league in which 68% of the players are black. Their lack of gratitude is staggering, grotesque, and utterly offensive.
To make matters worse, these players chose National Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day to diss America, a day set aside by Congress to remember the families of those who paid the last full measure of devotion for our security, our safety, and our freedom.
Easily the defining moment of the day came in London, where the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars played the NFL’s annual game in the United Kingdom. The players – along with the Muslim owner of the Jaguars – locked arms and refused to honor America’s national anthem but stood as one in respectful attention while the national anthem of the UK was being played. They would not honor the “Star-Spangled Banner” but stood in honor of “God Save the Queen.” That moment, that moment right there, is the moment the NFL died.

It should be noted that the 17 Ravens and Jaguar players who defied their country’s flag on foreign soil make a combined $448,373,425, an amount greater than the gross domestic product of a number of the world’s nations.
In America, three teams (the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Seattle Seahawks, and the Tennessee Titans) stayed in the locker rooms for the playing of the national anthem, despite the fact that NFL policy requires them to be fined for doing so. (An NFL official told ESPN the feeble and weak-kneed head office has no interest in imposing any fines at all.) But the truth is if the NFL can fine entire teams for disrespecting the flag, they can certainly fine individual players for doing the same thing.

Only one player for the Steelers, former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva, a veteran of three tours in Afghanistan, came out of the locker room and stood at attention for the national anthem. The rest of the Steelers hid like surly cowards in the bowels of the stadium while the rest of the stadium honored America. By the count of the Associated Press, across the league over 200 players dissed their nation and their flag yesterday.
Thirty-two Denver Broncos took a knee, and LeSean McCoy of the Buffalo Bills nonchalantly did his stretching exercises during the anthem. Black Power salutes are now common not only on the sidelines but during the game in celebration of sacks, interceptions, and touchdowns. If the NFL does not get a handle on this right now, it’s going to get ugly as new forms of angry protest are devised.
In Detroit, anthem singer Rico LaVelle dropped to one knee and raised the black power salute at the end of the song. Another national anthem artist did much the same thing.
In most stadiums, boos descended from the stands in response to these disgraceful protests. The NFL, in other words, is committing hari-kiri in front of the whole world.
Meanwhile, NASCAR owners made it clear that if a driver pulled a stunt like this in the NASCAR world he’d get fired so fast he’d get a nosebleed.
Federal law is quite clear on the proper protocol for the response to the national anthem in 36 U.S. Code, Section 301. After directions are given to individuals in uniform and to military veterans, the law says (emphasis mine) “all other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.”
It’s worth noting that if NFL players are linking arms, they cannot place their “right hand over the heart.” While there is no penalty specified for breaking this law, the law nevertheless is straightforward and unambiguous. NFL players who refuse to show respect for the anthem and the flag are not just flouting American ideals, they are breaking the law. The NFL can and should fine them for doing so.
The NFL’s players need to learn one lesson: when it’s time to pray, you go to your knees. When it’s time to honor your country, you rise to your feet. Period.
The media mocked Tim Tebow for taking a knee on the sideline to honor God. Now they glorify overpaid athletes for taking a knee on the sideline to dishonor America.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees correctly observed that those who are looking for a display of unity in America are missing a glorious opportunity.
I will always feel that, if you are an American, that the national anthem is the opportunity for us all to stand up together, to be unified, and to show respect for our country. To show respect for what it stands for, the birth of our nation…I feel like that is a unifying thing. The national anthem and standing for the national anthem, and looking at the flag with a hand over the heart is a unifying thing that should bring us all together. And say, ‘You know what? We know things are not where they should be, but we’re going to work and strive to make things better.’ To bring equality to all people — men, women, no matter your race, creed, religion, it doesn’t matter. Equality for all. But if you’re an American, then I will always believe that we should be standing, showing respect for our flag, with our hand over our heart.
The bottom line: with yesterday’s reprehensible shenanigans, the NFL has become the nation’s largest and most powerful hate group. And it is America that they hate. May the NFL rest in peace.
And let’s hope that NFL players and fans alike do not forget that there is a day coming when taking a knee will be the right thing to do. It will, in fact, be the only thing anyone will be able to do. Everyone in the universe will take a knee, not in protest but in submission. “At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:10-11). Maybe that’s the day we all should make sure we are ready for.

Vice President Mike Pence, Franklin Graham, Samaritan’s Purse, Chaplains, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and Countless Volunteers Assist the Victims of Hurricane Harvey

HURRICANE HARVEY UPDATE

VP Mike Pence Rolls Up Sleeves Alongside Franklin Graham to Help Harvey Victims
Thank you for your support and prayers over the past week as Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplains have been ministering at evacuation centers and homes throughout southeast Texas.

The chaplains were joined by Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence on Thursday in Rockport. They met with Franklin Graham, prayed for the people of Texas and lent a helping hand after one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history.

We thank you again for the prayers and support you have already given as chaplains have shared the love and compassion of Christ in Texas.

PHOTOS: Chaplains Offer Hope to Texas Evacuees and Residents
Since the hurricane swept over the Gulf Coast, Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplains have been there to offer emotional and spiritual care to people who are suffering.

These photos will give you a glimpse into the powerful ministry God is orchestrating throughout Texas.

Franklin Graham addressing a group of people outside a damaged church in Rockport, Texas.  “We need Christian men and women willing to come to south Texas to help us. There’s so much need down here,” he said.

Chaplains Deliver Desperately Needed Hope to Southeast Texas
By BGEA   •   August 30, 2017

Crisis-trained chaplains with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team arrived in Texas not long after Hurricane Harvey hit. Chaplains are now ministering in Victoria, Dallas, Houston and Rockport, Texas, with more sites to be added.

Franklin Graham visited some of the hardest-hit areas of Texas on Thursday. He paused to pray with a Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplain who has been ministering to residents

Chaplains are delivering emotional and spiritual care alongside Samaritan’s Purse volunteers in Victoria, which is located between Corpus Christi and Houston. Help send chaplains into disaster zones to offer hope in crisis.

The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team shares the hope of Christ during times of crisis. “We see this as an opportunity to demonstrate God’s love and care for people, for them to know that God hasn’t forgotten them,” said Jack Munday, international director of the RRT.

Vice President Mike Pence, along with his wife and second lady Karen Pence, and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, visited families impacted by the disaster.

Gov. Abbott also signed a proclamation declaring Sunday (Sept. 3) a day of prayer in Texas. “As we gather today here at this church, it’s important that we remember that the greatest power that exists is the power of God and the way that God can touch and move all of our lives,” he said.

Franklin Graham spent time with Texas residents and the chaplains who have been ministering to them.

Flood rescues after Harvey have been intense and ongoing as floodwaters recede.

An estimated 30,000 to 40,000 homes have been destroyed in the Houston area alone.

Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplain David Barlow shares a smile with firefighters in Victoria.  (see photo above) Often, first responders are deeply affected by the work they’re called to do in times of crisis. Continue to pray for these men and women on duty across Texas.

With Samaritan’s Purse volunteers working in the background, chaplains take a moment to pray with a homeowner affected by Harvey in Victoria, Texas.  (see above)

A week after Hurricane Harvey crashed into Texas, more than 1 million residents are displaced.

Police and emergency personnel are working around the clock to rescue flood victims. Large pockets of land are still underwater across the state.

A 9-year-old reads from the Bible (picture above) as a chaplain listens inside a home. Officials say thousands of people are still stranded in their flooded homes and officials are asking residents to be patient as they wait to be rescued.

Chaplains circle up to pray while visiting the home of residents affected by Hurricane Harvey.  (picture above)

Though they’ve been displaced twice from hurricanes, this family remained joyful in the hope of Christ. “But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.” —Psalm 5:11, ESV

Hurricane Harvey, now a tropical storm, has set a record for total rainfall from a single tropical cyclone in the continental United States, according to the National Weather Service. Two weather stations in the Lone Star State have reported total rainfall over 48 inches.

On Wednesday, the tropical storm continued to pound the Gulf Coast with torrential rains, flooding and strong winds. The full force of the storm’s impact has begun shifting to western Louisiana.

Rapid Response Team chaplain Mike Mattingly comforts and prays for Felix Cavazos, a victim of Hurricane Harvey.

Hundreds of chaplains are standing by to deploy in multiple sites across Texas. Will you keep the people of Texas in your prayers?

*************************

After installing the above article, it was learned that President Donald Trump declared Sunday, September 3, 2017, to be a National Day of Prayer for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  How timely, how appropriate and how refreshing.  What a beautiful contrast to the previous administration who ignored the One True God of the universe, through cancelling the National Day of Prayer and annually holding Ramadan in the White House.  May the Lord bless Donald Trump.

The Double Standard Of The Left Wing Media

During the eight years of the previous administration, we NEVER heard the phrase “Radical Islamic Terrorism” from our Commander-in-Chief.  We never heard a strong statement against the murder of law enforcement personnel.  But now, President Donald Trump is disparaged in a heartbeat because it took him a couple of days to call out the white nationalists who were responsible for the recent mayhem in Charlottesville, Virginia:

The liberals have skated over Benghazi, Fast and Furious and Attorney General Eric Holder, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton meeting on the tarmac, the corrupt Clinton Foundation, tens of thousands of Hillary Clinton’s deleted e-mails, and on and on and on…  They even ignore the real Russian collusion when the Clinton foundation sold uranium to the Russians.  But leave it to the folks with the tin foil hats to feast on the above mirage.  That seems to be the centerpiece of their platform that they have camped out on for the past year.

It is truly hard to believe that this corruption is so “in your face” obvious with the double standard of injustice, yet nothing ever becomes of it.

Quotable Quotation

Two weeks before the 2016 election I had dinner with Lance Wallnau. He told me he believed he had heard the Lord say that Donald Trump would win the presidency-and that “Trump is a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness in America.”

David Lane   ~   American Renewal Conference

*****************

Ironically, many of our nation’s leaders tell us that Political Correctness (PC) will lead to the downfall of our nation.  I have heard this statement from six or eight speakers at conferences that I have attended over the last several years.  I would not trust any man or woman from either side of the aisle (Republican or Democrat), to lead us away from the PC mentality.  Donald Trump is his own man and the man for the hour, who will circumnavigate the liberals who desire to destroy this country.  There is really no one else who I see, who could emulate him as he is.  I believe the Lord placed him in office as an answer to our prayers.    Pastor Steve

Linda Sarsour Calls for ‘Jihad’ Against Trump Administration – VIDEO July 07, 2017

Let me analyze Islamic activist Linda Sarsour’s incredible goals and desires:  She desires to declare a Jihad against President Trump and his administration because he wants to protect Americans from Sharia Law driven followers of Allah, who seek to take over the west and the world.  Incredibly, she is NOT doing this in Oman or Sudan, but right here in America.   Why do we not hear an immediate public outcry?  Former President Obama filled our government with Muslim Brotherhood activists.  Our dumbed down populace are ignorant of the goals of Islam.  We need spiritual and political leaders to come to the forefront and defend our freedoms.  My only question is where in tarnation is the Secret Service?  How about locking her up and throwing away the key?  Is the entire government in cahoots with “Progressives?”  She is calling to “take out” our president, not in privacy with her radical peers, but while speaking in a public setting.  Make no mistake – her desire to declare a Jihad against President Trump is the equivalent of seeking an assassination attempt.  That is the idea she is planting into the minds of her peers.  In Christ, Pastor Steve  <><

Linda Sarsour Calls for ‘Jihad’ Against Trump Administration – VIDEO

Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American anti-Israel activist who helped organize the nationwide Women’s March the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, called for ‘jihad,” or holy war, against the Trump administration last weekend.
Sarsour was speaking in Chicago at the annual conference of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group that the Investigative Project on Terrorism notes was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terror-funding prosecution, and was allegedly “created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood” in the United States in the early 1980s. (However, the group itself traces its origins to the formation of the Muslim Student Association in 1963.)
ISNA has been described as “the largest umbrella group of Muslims in North America.” President Barack Obama met with ISNA’s president in 2015, despite the group’s controversial views and alleged ties to radical movements.

Linda Sarsour Calls for ‘Jihad’ Against Trump Administration – VIDEO
July 07 2017

Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American anti-Israel activist who helped organize the nationwide Women’s March the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, called for ‘jihad,” or holy war, against the Trump administration last weekend.
Sarsour was speaking in Chicago at the annual conference of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group that the Investigative Project on Terrorism notes was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terror-funding prosecution, and was allegedly “created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood” in the United States in the early 1980s. (However, the group itself traces its origins to the formation of the Muslim Student Association in 1963.)
ISNA has been described as “the largest umbrella group of Muslims in North America.” President Barack Obama met with ISNA’s president in 2015, despite the group’s controversial views and alleged ties to radical movements.
Quoting the Prophet Muhammad, Sarsour said: “A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad.” She then added:
And I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts us from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.
The audience applauded.
The context of Sarsour’s remarks indicate that she meant a jihad using words. However, the term has also been used to describe violent struggle, including terrorism, against non-Muslims or against governments described as enemies.
In her speech, Sarsour also spoke about the importance of Muslims supporting other “oppressed” groups in the U.S. in their struggles — and talked about her experience representing Palestinians in those movements. “I don’t have to choose do I not be too Palestinian this day … I have been a living example of what it means to be whole-heartedly all of me, in whatever space that I am in,” she said.
She added: “I will not be in a space where any group or any organization or any individual tells me that there’s a part of my identity that is not welcomed,” a privilege not accorded to liberal Jews or Zionists who march for the “oppressed,” as excluded Jewish lesbians recently found out (also in Chicago).
Sarsour also urged those present to divert donations away from building mosques and towards “investing in leadership, our next generation.” She said donors within the community should split their donations between assistance to Muslims abroad and support for local organizations — and “not just building masaajid [mosques].”
She also urged them to donate to Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a Democrat who is running for governor in Michigan, and would be that state’s first Muslim governor. She attacked “establishment Democrats” who, she said, had blocked Muslims from succeeding within the Democratic Party in the past, and said that El-Sayed would change that.
Sarsour concluded by warning ISNA not to stop being outraged, and not to “normalize” the Trump administration.
Update: New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a Democrat who has often criticized Sarsour in the past, warned in a statement Thursday that Sarsour’s words should be taken “very seriously”: “Words matter. Attacks on the police, like the one New York suffered yesterday, are precipitated by violent slogans. Sarsour is very dangerous.”

Quotable Quotation ~ Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant To The President

“The latest Harvard poll says that more than 70% of Americans do not trust the media.  Why?  Because of the false, fake news, and propaganda products like Russian collusion.  This has gone on for six months with Russia, Russia, Russia.”

CNN = Fake News Station, Propaganda and Lies.

Bernie Sanders Thinks That A Christian Who Believes That Faith In Jesus Christ Is The ONLY Path To Salvation Is Not Fit For Public Office

Just when you think you heard it all, Communist, Socialist and Secularist Bernie Sanders reveals his unbelievable ignorance of American history and the Christian faith.  And to think he should have been the Democratic nominee if Hillary Clinton did not steal the election from him, is downright scary!

Enjoy the following clinic on the Christian faith and American history from the American Renewal Project:

 David Lane
American Renewal Project

From recent reporting by Todd Starnes of FOX News:

Sen. Sanders deemed Vought unsuitable for office because he [Vought] believes that salvation is found alone through Jesus Christ. He [Sanders] said someone with that kind of a religious belief system is ‘really not someone who this country is supposed to be about.’

Bernie Sanders doesn’t have a clue of what he’s talking about. Thankfully, other Senators rebutted their colleague from Vermont:

Sen. James Lankford warned that Sander’s comments [come] ‘dangerously close to crossing a clear constitutional line for how we evaluate qualifications for public service.’

‘The First Amendment is crystal clear that the federal government must protect every
American’s right to the peaceful and free exercise of religion,” the Oklahoma Republican said. ‘We cannot say we have the free exercise of religion and also require people to practice their faith only in a way that government officials prefer.’

From 1775 to 1797, George Washington served as the chief military and political leader of the new United States of America. Celebrated as the “Father of his Country,” Washington stated in his Farewell Address of September 19, 1796:

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity. Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness-these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens.”

 

Washington cautioned that the “one who labors to subvert a public role for religion and morality cannot call himself a patriot.”* Bernie Sanders’ recent statements certainly fit Washington’s warning.

John Adams, our second President, amplified Washington’s tenet: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The carcinogenic of Secularism – Christianity’s chief competitor – thrives in the absence of instruction about America’s Godly heritage. Secularism metastasized in America when the U.S. Supreme Court removed prayer and the Bible from public schools in 1962-1963; likely the most spiritually destructive event in the nation’s history.**

Leftist Bernie Sanders advanced a European-style socialistic platform in his campaign for president in 2016. Government-run healthcare, higher taxes, ubiquitous government interference and regulation, open borders, and a cradle-to-the-grave Welfare state: That is Sander’s vision.

 

As to America’s heritage, he would be well served to peek at the 13 original State Constitutions before he makes a complete idiot of himself.

EXHIBIT A
Pastors and Christian leaders were instrumental in the founding of America:
Plymouth, Massachusetts, Pilgrims’ Pastor Rev. John Robinson
Providence, Rhode Island, Rev. Roger Williams
Barnstable, Massachusetts, Rev. John Lothropp
Exeter, New Hampshire, Rev. John Wheelwright
Boston, Massachusetts, Rev. John Cotton
Hartford, Connecticut, Rev. Thomas Hooker
Add signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States:
John Witherspoon was a Presbyterian pastor.
Hugh Williamson had been a pastor earlier in his career, before becoming a doctor.
Robert Treat Paine served as a military chaplain.
Lyman Hall was a minister prior to the Revolutionary War.
Francis Hopkinson was a church music director and edited a famous American hymnbook.
Roger Sherman, wrote the doctrinal creed for his denomination in Connecticut.
Benjamin Rush, pioneered Sunday School in the United States and founded the country’s first Bible Society.
James Wilson, trained as a clergyman in Scotland, became an attorney who taught students the Biblical basis of civil law.
Add more pastors to the first Congress:
Frederick Muhlenberg was a Lutheran pastor elected the first U.S. Speaker of the House. He was the first signer on the Bill of Rights.
John Peter Muhlenberg was a Lutheran pastor, who became a General, and then U.S. House and Senate member.
EXHIBIT B

In 1784, 1785, and 1787, Congress passed the “Northwest Ordinances”-drafted by Thomas Jefferson. The purpose of the legislation was to arrange a method by which new states would be admitted to the Union. Three to five states could be carved from the “Northwest” territory, which eventually broke into five states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Part of the legislation read, “No person, demeaning [conducting] himself in a peaceable and orderly manner, shall ever be molested [harassed] on account of his mode of worship or religious sentiments.”

 

Of particular interest is Article Three of the 1787 Northwest Ordinance, “Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”

A generation later, April 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville, French historian and political scientist, set sail with Gustave de Beaumont for the United States, to study America. “From Sing-Sing Prison to the Michigan woods, from New Orleans to the White House, Tocqueville and Beaumont traveled for nine months by steamboat, by stagecoach, on horseback and in canoes.”***

As a result of de Tocqueville’s observation, he published his two-volume work, Democracy in America, in 1835 and 1840. What do you suppose immediately caught the attention of the Frenchman?

“Upon my arrival in the United States, the religious aspect of the country was the first thing that struck my attention; and the longer I stayed there, the more I perceived the great political consequences resulting from this new state of things. In France, I had almost always seen the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom marching in opposite directions. But in America, I found they were intimately united and that they reigned in common over the same country.

“[Religion in America] must be regarded as the foremost of the political institutions of that country; for if it does not impart a taste for freedom, it facilitates the use of it. Indeed, it is in this same point of view that the inhabitants of the United States themselves look upon religious belief. I do not know whether all Americans have a sincere faith in their religion – for who can search the human heart? – But I am certain that they hold it to be indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions”.

Secularists, like Bernie Sanders, don’t have a clue as to the Christian history of America. They have usurped the culture and now loom large over Big Business, public education, universities, government, Hollywood, arts and entertainment, and TV executives and media: i.e., the cultural mountains of influence.

There is good news in America. Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to head toward the public square. Hold onto to your seat because it’s going to be a bumpy ride, for somebody’s values are going to reign supreme.

The Power Of Prayer Is Driving Huge Changes In America

All of my Christians friends are still in awe of the miracle of the recent presidential election on November 8th, 2016.  They continue to give thanks in our prayer meetings.  I know the Lord is in this and it is indeed a “God thing,” because everyone who is ungodly (i.e. the left wing media, the Deep State, etc.) hates this man.  The horizon looks bright for Supreme Court nominees, banning dangerous illegal immigrants and so called sanctuary cities, and the list goes on.  I truly believe that if the saints in this nation humble themselves and depend entirely upon the Lord alone, that we could be “on a roll” for some time.  I feel it in the depths of my being.  Only God can bless, forgive, restore and make things new.  People across the nation are praying in unison for our nation on Facebook and many other formats.  Pray for President Donald Trump, his wife and family, his cabinet, his decision making, his health, and that the Lord would keep wicked and evil people from doing him harm.  I believe that President Trump has learned where his power comes from.  It is amazing how much the impact of one man can so greatly affect the lives of three hundred and twenty six million citizens.  Pray for revival in America!        Blessings, Pastor Steve  <><

‘Trump prophet’: God changing America from top down
6 years ago foresaw election, now predicts Supreme Court upheaval

Retired firefighter Mark Taylor predicted what almost no political expert in the entire world saw as even a remote possibility when he declared God had appointed Donald J. Trump as the next president of the United States.

Now, in his new book, Taylor says President Trump, with God’s help, is going to massively remake the federal government, starting with the Supreme Court.

“God is beginning to make changes from the top down,” Taylor writes in “The Trump Prophecies.” And he argues it is the power of prayer that is driving so many of these changes.

“When people pray and begin to make a change from the top down, not only does the transformation have to happen with the role of the highest leader, but it is necessary to rearrange his surrounding advisers, peers and supporting staff as well,” he writes. “There was a time when leaders had godly advisers. This will happen again.”

President Trump received massive support from the evangelical community during the election, despite his unconventional background and morally checkered past. Some suggested Trump had grown in faith in recent years; others claimed God could use anyone for His purposes.

However, since becoming commander-in-chief, Trump has taken strong action on many issues important to Christian conservatives, especially on religious liberty and abortion.

However, issues such as homosexual marriage, abortion, religious liberty and so many others ultimately depend on the makeup of the Supreme Court and the decisions that body renders. And it is at the Supreme Court where Taylor claims Trump will make his largest impact, noting the successful appointment of Neil Gorsuch.

“Gorsuch is currently receiving praise as a worthy replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia,” Taylor pointed out.

“Usually it takes a few years to get the full sense of a new justice,” wrote Richard Hasen, professor of law and political science at the University of California Irvine School of Law in the Los Angeles Times. “Not so with Gorsuch … while the precise contours of Gorsuch’s opinions are uncertain, and he could surprise in criminal cases, there’s little doubt that, like Scalia, conservatives will be able to count on his vote.”

But Taylor says Trump is just getting started.

In a “prophetic word” he claims was given to him on Feb. 24, 2016, Taylor predicts sweeping changes in the makeup of the court during Trump’s time in office. He claims God will “stack the court” with judges who will ultimately overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark and significantly flawed decision that overruled state laws banning abortion.

Taylor claims this revolutionary reconstitution of the Supreme Court will occur if American Christians follow the command given in 2 Chronicles 7:14 to “humble themselves,” pray and “turn from their wicked ways.”

Taylor even gives a specific number, promising five Supreme Court picks for Trump if Christians continue to repent and pray.

The most extraordinary political upset in history wasn’t a surprise at all. One man was given a direct message from God years before Donald Trump decided to run for president about who the next commander-in-chief would be. And the prophecies don’t stop with President Trump’s inauguration. America is about to undertake an incredible national journey. Don’t be left behind!

There has already been widespread speculation in recent days that Trump will soon be able to pick a second justice. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who turns 81 next month and has served on the Supreme Court for almost three decades, is rumored to be retiring soon. Kennedy is known as the court’s “swing vote,” so while replacing Scalia with Gorsuch simply prevented conservatives from losing ground, replacing Kennedy with a reliable conservative would allow Trump to fundamentally shift the balance of power.

Replacing Kennedy alone could also open the door to overturning Roe v. Wade.

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose health has become a concern for liberals since the election of Trump, has also been rumored to be considering retirement, though most observers doubt she would leave with a Republican in the Oval Office.

However, despite being the subject of a workout book, the 84-year-old cancer survivor has had health setbacks, and she has fallen asleep in court and during the State of the Union address, though she blamed alcohol for the latter lapse.

In the “The Trump Prophecies,” Taylor warns the political conflict the nation has witnessed thus far is nothing compared to what is coming regarding the Supreme Court.

“Understand that this potentially will be a very tumultuous time for our country,” Taylor wrote. “The enemy will not let go without a fight. In fact, right now he has dug in his claws with extreme determination. Powers of darkness feed on the blood of the innocent, and the laws that enable that blood to flow freely in this land are regulated by the Supreme Court. This places the court at dead center of every spiritual stronghold that fights to keep this nation captive.”

However, Taylor ultimately predicts victory – if Christians will keep the faith.

“The laws of this land have to change in order for us to return to the days of our prosperity,” he says in “The Trump Prophecies.” “It is time for the laws of our land to align with biblical morals again. We need to invite God back into our legal system, back into our courtroom, and evict the evil that currently resides there.”

The most extraordinary political upset in history wasn’t a surprise at all.
