Our Nation Under God

Rebellion Is Here

Jon Wakefield Portrait-profile

239 years ago, Americans rebelled against an out-of-control government, declaring their independence from England. Today, many Americans are also rebelling against an out-of-control government often perpetrating similar abuses upon them. But, fortunately, the situation is different this time.

As written in THE LIBERTY REBELLION:

Be encouraged. While the Founding Rebels—after patiently petitioning the British government for a long time—ultimately were forced into a brutal war to end their oppression, we’re not in that situation. We still have a voice today and can effectively use the government the Founders sacrificed so much to implement to prevent further governmental abuse. Our rebellion occurs in the halls of Congress and state legislatures, in school board meetings, and in the hearts and minds of reasonable people across America. Our rebellion is orderly, peaceful, and lawful. In fact, it is the [Big-Government Disciples] who are acting unlawfully, ignoring America’s ultimate authority—the Constitution—as well as many existing laws.

Principled Civil Resistance is Coming

Mathew D. Staver | Barbwire

Today, in America, we are witnessing an all-out demonization of Christians and their values. I believe that you and I must be among those principled citizens who rise up and stand against forces bent on the destruction of our nation’s religious and cultural underpinnings.

There is an aggressive movement against people of faith taking place in our nation the likes of which we have never seen. Right now, this movement is aggressively targeting natural marriage, seeking to redefine this God-ordained institution in courts of law and halls of legislatures… This destructive movement is also attacking our religious liberties. The movement’s leaders know that these two pillars of American culture are inextricably linked, and stand in the way of their takeover of virtually every aspect of our culture!

Letter to the Editor: Civilized Nation No More

Bnowers1

Re: Leonard Pitts article "Learning to get along in these polarizing times," March 18.

Pitts wrote about getting along in these polarizing times. During and after WWII we were the greatest nation on earth. Nearly everyone got along and we were a Christian and a united nation. What was it like? At that time abortion was murder, Bibles were read in every public school, Christian artifacts and evidence was in most public places, homosexuality was an abomination, just like the Bible says, and the Supreme Court ruled based on the real meaning of the Constitution and didn't re-interpret words and didn't illegally write new laws.

4 Reasons Why the Supreme Court Should Not Redefine Marriage

Jerry Newcombe | Barbwire

The Supreme Court is slated to rule on the subject of same-sex “marriage” this term. Here are four questions I want to ask same-sex marriage supporters:

1) If the Supreme Court says that it is okay for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman, then how can they stop there?

Once they open Pandora’s Box, how can they say that polygamy is unconstitutional? The Supreme Court already ruled on that. Utah, a state founded by Mormons, could not be accepted in the Union until there was the promise that they would not practice polygamy, Reynolds v. United States, 1878.

If the Supreme Court rules to “redefine” marriage beyond one man-one woman, then how can they say a man can’t marry his sister, or a mother her son, or a man and his dog, or two men and one woman? How can they legally draw a line? Proponents of same-sex marriage howl at such questions, but three men just “married” in Thailand the other day.

Stirring the Church for another Great Awakening with Don Blake and Dean Nelson

Dean Welty with Don Blake and Dean Nelson

Appreciated: Great Awakenings Past

Is it time for another Great Awakening in America? For example, the First Great Awakening stirred Americans to throw off the tyranny of Great Britain in the mid-1700’s.

It was spearheaded by evangelists like George Whitefield and by a Black-Robed Regiment of pastors like John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg in Woodstock who, on January 21, 1776, preached from Ecclesiastes 3 -- and then led his men into the War for Independence.

The Second Great Awakening in the 1800’s was also led by pastors like Charles Finney who stirred the people to throw off the shackles of slavery. Like the first, it too was a battle for national unity and for freedom.

The Common Core or a Renewed Mind

Mann-Webster

Horace Mann or Noah Webster?

The recent media coverage of the Common Core curriculum has caused debate among educators, politicians and parents. The stated goal of the Common Core is to have every school district in the nation follow the same national standards, the idea being that a standardized curriculum will raise students’ scores and performance across the board and make them more competitive in an international field. Proponents believe that a centralized approach to education in the U.S., with little parental control, no occasion for teacher innovation and a hefty taxpayer bill will be the solution to our failing schools, demoralized teachers and despondent students.

Friends from Richmond -- for God & Country

Greene Hollowell and Don Blake being inteviewed by Dean Welty

Special Guests: VCA Leaders Don Blake and Greene Hollowell

A Special Valley

We know the Valley is special in so many different ways.  For example, we have the beauty of the landscape; the productivity of the land; the faith and industry of the people; and the salt-and-light influence of our churches, pastors, and teachers.   

We also have a great group of Valley legislators who stand up and fight for our most deeply held values of Life, Faith, Family, and Freedom at the General Assembly in Richmond when it is in session, as it is now.

Reason For Hope

10987343 422656184568554 1942423912315100206 o

by Don Blake, VCA

Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience… (I Peter 3: 14-16 ESV)

Last week I was invited to attend the Reason For Hope conference at Regent University’s Founders Inn in Virginia Beach. The two-day conference was sponsored by the Foundation for American Christian Education (FACE). It was a great conference with a number of very well informed speakers. A lot of material was made available to the attendees.

I came back to Richmond with an invigorated feeling that there truly is a “Reason For Hope”; that hope is Christian education for our youth. I encourage everyone to visit the FACE website (face.net) and learn more about this organization and the resources that they offer.

Virginia Christian Alliance: 'Every Pastor Should Fear For His Job' if Conscience Bill Fails

Conscience Bill Controversy

RICHMOND, VA - Chris Thomas | WWBT

The President of the Virginia Christian Alliance is supporting a proposed "Conscience Bill" that would allow people not to participate in actions that violate their religious or moral beliefs. This all stems from the recent approval of gay marriage in Virginia.

"Every pastor should fear for his job," said Don Blake who is president of the Virginia Christian Alliance.

House Bill 1414 says, "A person shall not be required to perform, assist, consent to, or participate in any action or refrain from performing, assisting, consenting to, or participating in any action as a condition of obtaining or renewing a government-issued license, registration, or certificate where such condition would violate the religious or moral convictions of such person with respect to same-sex marriage or homosexual behavior."|

American Exceptionalism - Nationalist Arrogance or Historical Fact?

The Mayflower Compact 1620 cph.3g07155

Ricki Pepin | Providence Foundation

American Exceptionalism. The very term evokes highly charged emotions backed by two very distinct schools of thought diametrically opposed to one another:

Traditionalists declare that America marches to a different drummer, its uniqueness seen through its history, size, geography, political institutions and culture. Progressives and many college professors reject this view, vigorously decrying America as an imperialist, bully nation with class-based and race-based inequalities. Which one is true?

Congress Pulls Rank in Military Debate

WU14K21 NORMAL

There may not be atheists in foxholes, but there sure are a lot of quiet Christians. With religious freedom under attack in America’s military, most troops are scared to even talk about their beliefs. And who can blame them? Under President Obama, the military censors chaplains’ sermons, but builds Wiccan fire pits for cadets. It tells commanders to strip God out of an online article, while its missile defense staff spends hours surfing pornography at work. It tears down POW displays for its Bibles, but lets soldiers march in uniform in gay pride parades.

Slowly but surely, our brave servicemen and women are losing the very rights they’re fighting to protect. FRC is determined to change that. Over the past few years, we’ve been on the front lines of the military religious freedom debate -- trying to restore the constitutional ground lost under this administration. Today, the House Armed Services Committee took a positive step toward resolving the crisis by hosting a special “Religious Accommodations in the Armed Services” hearing.
