The Left is Right

Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Promoting America as a Nation Under God, But Not a National Church as the Church of England

Introduction:   While, in this day and age, it is difficult to see the United States as a nation under God, it was once commonplace for politicians to consult their Bibles, for children to pray openly in schools, for the Bible to be taught in public schools, and for the court system to reference the Bible for guidance[1] These times have passed The 1960s brought rampant change to American society, and years since have struck even heavier blows to our nation’s Christian heritage Something integral to our nation has been lost, and it must be found again if America is to endure as its founders envisioned This discourse will primarily focus on the United State’s Christian roots by examining the beliefs and practices of its founding fathers, namely George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, among others By examining the claims of Thomas Jefferson, in particular, we hope to shed some light on common misconceptions about the meaning of the phrase, “separation of church and state,” and its modern day implications We will also look at the various ways our nation has fallen from its Christian heritage and how Christians can make a difference Read More

America Needs Our Christian Faith – Don’t Leave It In The Pews

America Needs Our Christian Faith – Don’t Leave It In The Pews

Mark Landsbaum | BARBWIRE "I love my country” It was almost jarring to hear those words spoken aloud by a grown man talking to a bunch of other men In a church no less But this is what it’s come to, being jarred by hearing such a thing Why is that News reports tell us that millennials have virtually no sense of patriotism We just finished eight years of a president who insisted nothing is exceptional about the United States, and traveled the globe apologizing for the USA’s alleged sins, sucking up to enemies determined to harm us and insulting friends and allies Suddenly everything that was right had become wrong with our nation Read More

The Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell

By Stephen McDowell |  Providence Foundation The Liberty Bell has been used as the logo of the Providence Foundation since near the time of our official founding in 1984 A verse from the Bible, Leviticus 25:10, is engraved on the top of the bell: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof Lev XXV, X” The context of this Scripture is the jubilee year of liberty, which according to God’s instruction was to occur every 50 years and was marked by forgiveness of debts, the return of all lands to the original owners, and freedom to enslaved Israelites Appropriately, this good fruit partially represents the outcome of our mission to spread Christian liberty throughout all the nations As we teach Biblical principles for all spheres of life, the result will be men and nations who are liberated, blessed, and advancing Or as Jesus taught, we disciple nations by teaching men to observe all He commanded (Matthew 28:18-20) Read More

Letter to the Editor not published – immoral agenda of the Democrats

Letter to the Editor not published – immoral agenda of the Democrats

In the article by columnist Marc Thiessen it stated that PA State Rep Rick Saccone declared that liberals hate America and hate God The word ‘hate’ is pretty strong but I believe a case can be made that his statement would, in softer words, apply to a minority of American Democrats President Obama and his wife were certainly not thrilled about America, stating it was no longer a Christian nation They did their best to down grade and weaken America Read More

The Really, Real, Roots Of America’s School Shootings

The Really, Real, Roots Of America’s School Shootings

Craig Johnson | The Really Real Deal VCA Board  Member  Many see the ousting of God from our public schools, in the form of the banning of prayer in 1962, as the beginning of our national slide to where we are today; children being slaughtered by classmates  Many of these same people want to see the reinstatement of prayer in schools as a first step toward healing  If only it were that simple First, before they banned God from school, they banned God from the Constitution  The neo-liberal left accomplished this by teaching in law schools, media, etc, that there are only five clauses in the First Amendment  However, there are actually six clauses Read More

Americans Say We’re Generally On The “wrong Track”

American Culture and Faith Institute America’s clash of worldviews is clearly portrayed in a new survey by the American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI) It is no surprise that most adults believe the United States is not moving in the right direction Since the 1980s, surveys evaluating such perceptions have typically found that most Americans believed the nation was “moving in the wrong direction” or was “on the wrong track” Whether the president or the party in power has been Republican or Democrat, a majority of the public has not been satisfied with the way things were going since 2003!
