And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever: that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation, is among possible events: that it may become probable by supernatural interference! ~ Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia

From the very beginning of its existence, through the history available to us from the earliest immigrants to the shores and hinterland of what eventually became known as the Constitutional Republic of the United States, God and divine intervention have indeed been the two main building blocks of the most successful nation on the planet.

A divine collaboration between God and We the People.

But of late, there have been far more tremors of resistance to God’s divine intervention into the affairs of man than there have been of a widening human affectation to an even more fervent acquiescence to the Godly presence.

Particularly as it relates to the immediate and extended future of the United States.

A dangerous, persistent, and willful falling away by a majority of the population, and not only in the United States, but worldwide, is what might well be described as the progressives’ attitude towards Western civilization stemming from their unabated hatred of God and Christianity; which has more than a tendency to seep into the very annals of political governance and oversight worldwide, generally with devastating consequences.

Western Civilization is indeed based on Judeo-Christian morals and it is that morality that is being most universally rejected. In decades past even non-believers recognized the benefits of Judeo-Christian morality but those moral attitudes have not been sustainable without actual belief.

Consider the simplicity of God’s interaction with every one of us: You shall have no other gods before me * You shall not make for yourself an idol * Do not take the name of the Lord in vain * Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy * Honor your father and mother * You shall not kill/murder * You shall not commit adultery * You shall not steal * You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor * You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.

Then, in what passes for ‘news’ these days, we’ve got the Demigods of Davos currently in session; the Brits in complete disarray over Brexit / Remainers; the EU in turmoil with an Islamic Barbarian Invasion setting Paris on fire; the Bobblehead ‘Lavrentiy Beria’ Mueller in disguise as the American equivalent of the Russian ‘Narodny Kommisariat Vnutrennikh Del’ (NKVD for short, aka ‘People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs’) and on and on and on…

The fear of God (ie reverence) is obviously a problem for materialists and humanists who reject authority, especially Divine Authority. In America since 1973 for instance, progressive materialists and humanists who cheat, lie, steal, and think man is a god and executioner, have been complicit in supporting the murder of some 60 million babies and counting (Roe v Wade, Planned Parenthood, and other abortionists) in what should be the holiest and most sacrosanct haven anywhere in the Universe: the peace, solitude, and comfort of a mother’s womb.

God will not hold us guiltless.

To all intents and purposes, Western Civilization appears to be comatose, if not already dead. But it is increasingly clear that both Alexander Fraser Tytler and Oswald Spengler (links to both down below) both had it right in that civilizations are born and ultimately die of their own volition. America may or may not revive from its coma. Canada to a great degree is suffering inwardly. Latin America is going through palpitations. Europe is a rotting corpse.

Damnation to hell for eternity is what matters and not what a Pope or other men engaged in earthly religious matters do or promote; that is ultimately of little concern to any of us. Indeed, if there is a God (of which I am fully convinced and believe) it is intimidating enough to have to be judged by Him as an individual, never mind what evil naysayers / communists do, which surely won’t be my problem. Nor will I be accountable for religious situations on earth unless I was part of them.

At the end of the day of course, there are many people out there who are comfortably OK with the legalization of infanticide, and who barely seem to worry about what the pope says or doesn’t say. On the other hand, they don’t appear to be too worried about making God angry either.

Or do they?

Indeed I tremble for my country.

End of Part One. To be continued…
