11-9-19 Kingdom, Profiles In Courage

Kingdom, Profiles In Courage  Profiles In Courage

I have this very Reformation and American Puritan concept of Kingdom, which demands reviewing Profiles In Courage. Now I mention JFK’s book in that he discusses several individuals that stood against the tide of political pressure from their peers.

Making it clear that I am not a classical theologian, understand that I have studied the application of Reformation and Puritan theology in some great detail. To that, Kingdom is a topic that reaches into governance in the present as much as it is a reality when one dies. Understanding who the King of kings is and what that means for living in this world is critical to governing in ones own life, family, community, work and our Constitutional Republic – be that a State or National.

Profiles In Courage

Living according to Reformation – American Puritan concepts like Samuel Adams requires correct understanding of Kingdom and acting with Profiles In Courage. To stand against tyranny in our Republic, the knowledge of such must be rightly taught and inculcated in our youth again. JFK has John Quincy Adams as his first example of this. Do you know who John Quincy Adams is or what he was doing at twelve years old? Consider that our youth today have less of a clue than you and then consider young Mr. Adams position in international affairs at that age. Continue reading

A Sermon for Americans by Pastor Doug Wilson

I was looking to write something like “A Sermon to Americans’ but it is better preached by Pastor Wilson. 

As many of you know, I’m just a simple Citizen that has delved deep into the Foundations of America. Since my immersion in facts, hip wading through the modern mire of rewriting history – face it, this has been happening over the last 80 years – I have been able to very clearly see the relationship of Reformation Biblical reality regarding all governance.

Not to make this one of my long commentaries, I will simply note that the Link to the Sermon by Pastor Doug Wilson is one that should be echoed from every Evangelical pulpit in the land.

“A Sermon for Americans” (here’s the Link) is in the tone of those ‘Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution’ that I often speak of. It could be one that fits into the collection of ‘Election Day Sermons‘ that I speak of, although it is much shorter.

I want to thank Pastor Wilson for this sermon. I pray that those many other pastors out there will bring a like message to their congregations such that Jesus is glorified and that true Liberty once again reigns in this Land.

Remember, that as shown in the Old Testament, humanity will ebb and tide the understanding of True Liberty according to the factual preaching of the Word of God and the hearers acting accordingly.

I encourage you all to watch ”A Sermon for Americans’ and hear what is being said in this sermon. One has to hear it several times to glean all that is in it since it is impactful in every paragraph. This is a timely message that resonates with the times we are living in.

5-25-19 Mental Health Is A Moral Issue

Mental Health – Moral Issue  Biblical Worldview solves Most Mental Health

I can unequivocally attest to the reality and fact that Mental Health Is A Morality Issue. Now, with being on a Mental Health and Recovery Services Board for over a year and listening to agencies describe their programs for ‘those in need’; I have to say that over 80% of what I hear as Mental Health Issues is in reality – Morality nonexistent in schools, homes and community.

The litany of humanistic solutions is in reality going to continue the degeneration of our American Foundational Heritage. That litany sings as the Marx, Trotsky, Hobbs, Freud, Rauch, Hall, Wunt, Pavlov, and Jung choir. All of this virtually unanswered by Reformation Biblical solutions.

The only major ‘church’ organization involved in Mental Health is Catholic Charities and I would not say they use a Reformation Biblical Model.

Society A Moral Issue

4-27-19 Did Evangelicalism Lose the Nation? And the EagleFireCloud Soars

Introduction:

This question: “Did Evangelicalism Lose the Nation?” is not new. 1913 was one of the early times that this question was heard. It was asked by J. Gresham Machen in – The Princeton Theological Review, Vol. 11, 1913 article titled, “Christianity & Culture”. Nothing has changed but the reality that Pastors are even less engaged in Culture for the same lame reasons as when this article was written.

Surveillance CapitalismI am also discussing the techno-oligarchs and the book “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight For A Human Future at the New Frontier of Power”. I will be providing you with a solution by describing how EagleFire Soars in returning your digital Liberty back to you.

3-30-19 Christian America Lost and Sam Adams Character

Introduction:  American Christian Lost

On this program I look at several key pointers that we have a great issue of more than 40 years in the making: Christian America Lost. And discuss Sam Adams Character with several surprising parallels to President Trump.

Christian America Lost:

This is clearly brought out by Franklin Graham in a talk he gave at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida. I searched hard to validate the references for this and below is the best of many connections to the quote. Fundamentally, Franklin puts the ownership of the cultural/political travesty of the nation on the church and pulpits.

Interestingly, Mike Huckabee interviews David Horowitz on this topic. David confirms that all that is good in America and its Foundation are from Americas Christian formulation and that the enemy is in full attack. With that, Christians must take to the battle and not lie on the sidewalk to be trampled. Continue reading

3-23-19 Conserving What: History, Constitutionalism, Church or Principles?

Introduction: Conservatism OR Foundational Principles

What is Conservatism about? The question by a noted pastor/theologian is: Conserving What? Are those who call themselves “Conservatives” looking to return to the past in history? Are they trying to return to the Constitution as it was when established? Are they looking to reformation in the church? Or, are they re-establishing Foundational Principles both Biblically, which is the derivative for social, economic and political continuity?

Conservatism:

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: Chapter 30 – Israel Evans

Israel Evans. 

The quick picture of Israel Evans: — His Character. — Ordained Chaplain in the Army. — Remains with His New Hampshire Brigade through the War. — Stands Beside Washington at Yorktown. — Anecdote of Him and Washington. — His Sermon on the Field of Battle. — Settled at Concord, New Hampshire. — His Death.

Israel Evans was one with and of the heart and spirit of King David. He was finally attuned to military life, battle and the “Extensibility” of the Gospel. His harrowing times in all battles are not well documented but he was next to Washington at Yorktown when a cannon ball hit at their feet. Continue reading

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: Chapter 29 – David Avery

David Avery.   David Avery

David Avery’s story brought tears to my eyes. I have never met a modern Pastor like him.: — His Birth And Character. — Converted Under Whitfield. — Leaves His Trade To Study For The Ministry. — Enters Dr. Wheelock’s Charity School. — Graduates At Yale College. — Studies Divinity. — A Missionary Among The Indians. — Settled At Gaysboro, Vermont. — His Patriotism. — Raises A Company And Marches To Boston. — Made Chaplain. — Noddle’s Island. — Present At The Battle Of Bunker Hill. — Praying For Victory. — Accompanies Washington Through The Jerseys. — Wounded At Trenton. — At Valley Forge. — At Ticonderoga. — At Bennington. — His Death.

David Avery was “gentle and kind in his manners, and with a heart full of tenderness, he had at the same time a bold and fearless nature which, when roused, it was dangerous to oppose.” He is highly honored by Washington for his heroic acts as a soldier and Minister of God. Most interesting is that this was a young man who worked hard to same money to go to college. The reason he wanted to go was that he became a believer in Jesus through the ministry of George Whitefield. Continue reading

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: Chapter 28 – John Witherspoon

John Witherspoon.  John Witherspoon

John Witherspoon is one of my most favorite pastors and statesman. He was a strong Patriot working side by side with Sam Adams: — The Clergy as Statesmen. — Witherspoon a Scotchman by Birth. — His Early Life. — Is licensed to preach. — Joins the Army of the Pretender. — Taken Prisoner at the Battle of Falkirk. — His Eminence as a Theologian. — Is elected President of Princeton College. — Flattering Reception in this Country. — Takes Sides with the Colonies. — Elected Member of the New Jersey Legislature. — Scathing Attack of Governor Franklin. — Elected Member of Congress. — His Speech on the Declaration of Independence. — His Great Services in Congress. — His Death.

John Witherspoon had a close working relationship with Samuel Adams. They both stayed in the Continental Congress when all was in a shambles as well as in great success. Continue reading

Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: Chapter 27 – Daniel McCalla

Daniel McCalla.

The details of Daniel McCalla exemplify the core of leadership in the extensibility of the True Gospel: — His Birth. — Graduates at Princeton Ween eighteen tears of age. — Studies for the Ministry. — Settles in Pennsylvania. — Appointed Chaplain under General Thompson. — Is taken Prisoner in the Attack on “Three Rivers”. — Thrown into a Prison Ship. — His Suffering And Fortitude. — Released on Parole. — Flees to Virginia. — Settles in South Carolina. — His Death.

Daniel McCalla like Samuel Adams entered college at fourteen. Different then Sam Adams, McCalla kept the ministry in mind where as God changed the direction of Sam to become the ‘Father of The American Revolution.” Continue reading
