Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.”
Engravings on the Rotunda and the Northwest Portico of the Jefferson Memorial include:
“I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
“Almighty God hath created the mind free. All attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens…are a departure from the plan of the holy Author of our religion…No man shall be compelled to frequent or support religious worship or ministry or shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but all men shall be free to profess and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion.”
In Twenty-first Century America, there is a form of tyranny over the minds of men that would shock and appall the Founding Fathers. This newly established state religion denies freedom of thought. It influences the minds of men by burdens, punishments, and sufferings. It compels the population to worship at its altars without questioning its fundamental tenants.
The new religion uplifts self and denies moral restraint. This tyrannical force ostracizes those who would claim the preeminence of God-given truth. It swears allegiance to open-mindedness and moral relativism. This new religion insures that its precepts are ingrained into the common psyche through educational curriculum, public policy, and legal code. It reshapes history to remove the vestiges of the past. It is nothing less than tyranny over the mind of man, and those who oppose it must be strong in the Lord.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD BE STRONG IN THE LORD AS THEY STAND AGAINST THE NEWLY-ESTABLISHED STATE RELIGION. Opposition to tyranny takes a force far stronger than self-reliance. It takes humble prayerfulness.
