Commentary by Linda: The Death of America

Many Americans in the early years of our Republic truly regarded the Constitution as a miracle, declaring that the formation and adoption of our new system of federal government represented a political achievement unprecedented in human history. Our Founders believed the Constitution was destined to bless all mankind, and that it was incumbent on their successors to preserve and defend our national charter.

In "The 5000 Year Leap," author Cleon Skousen details the 28 great ideas utilized by the Founders in the formulation of our Republic. While some for instance, were derived from the Romans and others from the Anglo-Saxons, the greatest and most important ideas are Biblical, and of these the Biblical view of mankind is absolutely vital, for it's precisely from this---the most radical view of man ever known in human history--- that our liberties and rights derive. In this view, man is an animal only in the sense that his body is of the natural realm. Spiritually however, he transcends or rises above the natural realm because he is made in the spiritual image of his transcendant Creator. Man thinks, reasons, and loves because his Creator thinks, reasons, and loves. Unique to man is free will. He can choose to lie or tell the truth; to give into bad impulses or not give into them; to seek truth, beauty and goodness, or conversely, to seek lies, ugliness, and evil.

Divinely endowed, mankind---unlike all other creatures--- is capable of self-government so long as his ability to reason is morally-informed at all times. There are only two sexes, male and female and there is only one human race. As all men are the creature's of the living Creator, not only do they comprise a spiritual brotherhood, but they are obviously meant to be free. All of these truths were known by the Founders to be immutable, that is, good everywhere, in all times and not subject to change.

All together, these immutable Biblical principles were encapsulated by the Founders like this: "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." --Declaration of Independence

"The Founders vigorously affirm throughout their writings that the foundation of all reality is the existence of the Creator, who is the designer of all things in nature and the promulgator of all the laws which govern nature. " (A Miracle that Changed the World: The 5000 Year Leap; Principles of Freedom 101)

Coming out of the Constitutional convention, a bystander asked Benjamin Franklin what sort of government had been created. A Republic, he responded, if we can hold on to it. By this he meant that if future Americans turned away from the living Creator, the Republic would eventually collapse from chaos-induced immorality and the tyranny which follows in the wake of chaos as surely as night follows day.

Only those with their heads in the sand can deny seeing the flagrant immorality, dysfunction, moral imbecility, depravity and increasing chaos drowning our land. "Genuine individual virtue--the stuff of which true, timeless, praiseworthy character is made," writes John MacArthur in "The Quest for Character," has been replaced by the public "flaunting of decadence." America is now a society that confers celebrity status on immoral, unnatural, vulgar, and outright villanous people. Being bad is 'cool,' but being evil is better. In short, a transvaluation or inversion of traditional America has taken place. Bad is good, good is bad, the abnormal is normal the normal is abnormal, lie is truth, truth is lie, and 1+1=5. Traditional values America, in other words, has been turned upside-down. Jesus Christ cautioned us to seek the paths of tradition, but tradition is now an evil.

In America today, males can be females. From MassResistance Update: Dear Clara Barton Families, "our students may notice and ask about the differences in our custodian from last year to this. If they ask at school, they will be given a simple and straightforward answer. The best thing to tell them is that our custodian used to be a man. She has changed her gender role and is now a woman."

In his American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828----the dictionary utilized by earlier Americans--- Noah Webster defines 'gay' as "merry, airy, jovial, and frolicksome." Webster defines a 'person' as, "An individual human being consisting of body and soul...possessed of a rational nature.'" Mankind is defined as,"the human race; the whole species of human beings; distinguished from all other animals by the powers of reason and speech, 'And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion...Gen. 1"

The words gay, mankind, and person have been drained of their true meaning and replaced with depraved 'new' meaning. 'Gay' implies that rather than two sexes, there is now a continuum of evolving 'genders.' No longer is there but one race of man; now there are multitudes of races, including one called 'gay.' Mankind is no longer made in the image of his Creator. Now he is nothing more than a chance emergence from nature; an aggregate of matter; a soulless, mindless animal controlled and driven by instinctual impulses. Showing that pride goes before a fall, the 'person' of today---proudly believing himself enlightened, scientific, and progressive---is really nothing but a trousered beast.

Increasingly, America resembles a culture abandoned to flagrant sin and moral imbecility (debased mind), as described in Romans 1:21-32, which tells us that having turned away from our Creator, " God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; beng filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgement of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." (The Quest for Character, p. 2)

America, the 'land of the free, home of the brave,' described by Ronald Reagan as a 'shining city on a hill,' is in its death throes. Where once a morally-informed people who firmly believed that all men are sinners carefully put into positions of power and authority only other morally-informed people, this is no longer the case. With the exception of a rather small number of decent, moral officeholders, America is now controlled by self-idolizing narcissists; morally depraved imbeciles; emotional tyrants who care for nothing but themselves and what they desire---no matter the cost to everyone else. The morally depraved are there for one overriding reason, and that is because the 'elected' resemble in lack of moral character, the 'electorate.'
