2-16-19 Sermons and George Washington’s Farewell Address Continued – Party Spirit

Introduction:  Political Sermons of the American Founding Era

Saturday’s program is the promised continuation of last week with a some additional insight into truth about Christianity during the Founding that you won’t get in the majority of churches in our modern time.

I forgot to put in out that I will be on Dr. Mike Spaulding’s program this Monday evening. Here is the link to his program site: https://drmikelive.com/ Please listen in if you can. We will be covering a lot of topics including my books and the two big projects I’m working on.

Sermons Of the Founding Era:

The Pulpit was in fact, in total reality the core depository of Foundational Principles regarding Liberty. I will open the program with the following two quotes:
“To the Pulpit, the Puritan Pulpit, we owe the moral force which won our Independence.”

– John Wingate Thornton

“This principle, that a whole nation has a right to do whatever it pleases, cannot in any sense whatever be admitted as true. The eternal and immutable laws of justice and morality are paramount to all human legislation. The violations of those laws is certainly within the power of a nation, but it is not among the rights of nations.”

– John Quincy Adams

Party Spirit:   Washington's Farewell Address

We continue with reviewing George Washington’s Farewell Address. Once again his insights to humanity from his religious experience is developed in his warnings regarding political parties. In our present time, we must look in the mirror of history to see what was predicted in these words of wisdom and the reflection shows the worse of what Washington brought into the light.

The key point that President Trump echos in the recent State Of The Union address is that of ‘obstruction’ and those who are perpetuating it are defined by Washington’s Farewell Address.

Our action Item

And because you keep asking!
