Dear IVA Friends, “Follow what you know God put in your heart.”
I have shared this advice with many people throughout my ministry. Today, I am announcing that I am taking my own advice to heart.
Folks, this is a fact. If we do not pass down the Christian values on which this country was founded to our youth, everything, we, adults know and believe about America will go to the grave with us.
I know that was blunt, but I can’t think of any other way to say it.
It can go without saying that Tom Luna’s plan for education reform in Idaho is a hot topic. Several times I have been tempted to weigh in. This week I read an excellent editorial in the Coeur d’Alene Press by one of our strong IVA supporters, Bob Shillingstad.
Saturday, I sat in my living room with a handful of Idaho’s and American’s future; Christian youth who love Christ and this country; young people ready to give their lives to lead their generation back to Christ and America back to her founding values.
Physicians should not be allowed to intentionally kill their patients, either by providing the means of death or ending the patient’s life by their doctor’s hands. There is a tremendous distinction between allowing someone to die naturally when medical technology cannot stop the dying process and causing someone to die through assisted suicide or euthanasia.
Those of us who deeply desire to see America return to her core Judeo-Christian values would do well to take a page from the progressive liberal playbook for cultural change.
Is it proper to mix Christianity and American politics? Last week, in part one, I provided ample evidence showing that historically it is more than proper that the two mix; but what about biblically?
Have you ever wondered to yourself; “Who was the first American to say it was not proper to mix American politics and Christianity?”
The question of “Is it too late for America?” can only be addressed after answering, “Are you willing to pay the price?”
“Why hasn’t God judged America?” is a question that has most often been asked whenever conversations turn to Biblical prophecy. Perhaps, however, the question most appropriate now is, “How far and for how long will the judgment of God be upon America?”
