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.

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.
I 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.

George Washington’s Warning of internationalism stresses that our liberties will be lost if we chase after what other countries have instead of holding fast to all that is natural in America. We also look at two Anti-federalists who step us through anarchy. I suggest that in these warnings of the Centinel and Alfred that we can substitute socialism as the root that fosters anarchy.
Lastly, I sat teary eyed in a public place reading and preparing for the video’s of chapters 30 through 33 of the Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution. It pains me deeply that many modern pastors are ‘Tory Traitors’ by being caught up in their ignorance and out-right refusal to know the truth of Christianity in America.
Pastors at the Foundation:
Unlike today where the predictions of Alfred ring true even regarding the Church, this is what was written in 1864 as a recap of the Foundational Pastor: Continue reading
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
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
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

Charles Cummings was distinguished as: — An Irishman by Birth. — Settles in Virginia. — Esters the Ministry. — Fights the Indians. — Goes armed to his Church. — Takes the Lead in the political Movements of the People. — Chaplain to the Army in the Expedition against the Cherokees. — His Death.
Charles Cummings came to America as a young man. He became a minister and lived at the very edge of danger. He was a leader and fighter both for glory of God and the birth of a new nation.
“He took a leading part in all patriotic movements of his congregation” and was appointed to “to draw up an address to the Continental Congress.” He was also elected the Chairman of the Committee on Safety. This means he ensured the citizens knew how to defend themselves against all threats. Continue reading
