I want to wish everyone an after the meal Happy Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for. A Thanksgiving With Sam Adams is actually from five years ago when I started on Liberty Works Radio Network. You will hear Sam Adams speaks directly to this requirement that people, politicians, a State and the Nation not only should but must give Thanks to the God of the Universe.

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
This week we have seen a two sided perspective of Political Idolatry. In many ways, those that have taken a position on the Constitution make it preeminent without the Founders context. On the other hand, the Founders frame of reference was that ‘this Constitution is ONLY for a Moral and Religious People’. Many say those words but the nation does not have them in practice, especially within the halls of Congress and the bureaucracies. This Constitution and its means of governing within the framework of the document is impractical without the fundamentals of morality, religion (Christianity in the context of the Founders) and as John Adams stated the same notion, virtue.
This issue at hand is that in general, we do not have a moral and virtuous society as intended. To that point, the Christian religion is not what it was during the Founding era.
I take this Political Idolatry head on with what has been in the news this week regarding ‘Confessing Your Sins To Plants’ and ‘Confessing Your Climate Sins’. Continue reading
Sam Adams Masters Thesis was a shock to the established political class of the day. As a Twenty Year Old his maturity in understanding the elements of the times was in fact greater than his years. Sam Adams was raised in a Biblical Reformation home. His was an impeccable student. His parents wanted him to be a minister but God had other plans for him. Sam Adams understood the full extensibility of the Gospel into every aspect of life including the political arena. We are going to take a quick dive into how Sam Adams Masters Thesis came about and what it means for the present.
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
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?
The facts are that Sam Adams, Meyhew and Witherspoon were contemporaries. Johnathan Meyhew was born in 1720, Adams in 1722 and Witherspoon in 1723. Adams graduated Harvard in 1740 with an AM and a Masters Degree in 1742. Meyhew graduated in 1744 and Witherspoon received his Master from the University of Edinburgh in 1739. Sadly, hardly anyone really knows much about these three. Continue reading
The Mid-Term Election Matter
Mid-term Elections Matter even with the election of President Trump in 2016 is the first effort in fifty-years in what he clearly states in his inaugural speech. “Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.1” The forceful opposition to this clear transfer back to Founder’s Intent for self-governance is the purposeful intent of the democrats and their socialists/neo-marxists collaborators.
The greatest fights for our Constitutional Republic are yet before US. The miscreants of the attacking ‘left’ are now fully engaged to topple every aspect of the Constitution and the Republic. With the confirmed appointment of Justice Kavanaugh they are conceding the loss of the position but are claiming through people like actress Milano, “we may have lost a political battle, but I do think we are winning the cultural battle.2” – In her interview on “Meet The Press” of all programs. This self-styled political genus uses the word ‘collective’ numerous times. Remember that language usage is 100% telling of ones ideologies.
So what about all the ‘Tolerance’ shouting and coexistence stuff? Continue reading
The Vindication of the Founders of the Nation is required even more so now in the congregation of the churches where Liberty in its totality once rang true.
As I was preparing for this program I received and email that has taken me down a completely different course than I intended. The article by Dr. Joel McDurmon title “Sam Adams to America: “I told you so.”” vindicates all that I have been doing these many years as Sam Adams as well as my diatribe that the Anti-federalists ‘Got It Right’! Great article so click on the link in this paragraph or in the References to read it.
With this past Wednesday being ‘Independence Day’ – I want to remind you of the word of Sam Adams as he was asked to give his perspective related to the Declaration of Independence. He spoke about this Action on August 1, 1776 – the day before the final signatures were affixed to the completed document. Continue reading
