Rev. Chuck Baldwin on the predicted decline of Christianity in America:
Look no further than this one report for an explanation as to what happened to our once-great nation.
John Adams rightly warned:
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious [meaning the Christian religion] people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
The collapse of Liberty in our country is directly related to the collapse of the Christian faith in our country.
Please observe that the dramatic decrease in the number of professing Christians transpired at the same time that megachurches were popping up all over the place and television evangelists were ubiquitous.
I hate to say, “I told you so,” but I told you so.
When I saw President G.W. Bush turning evangelical Christians into warmongers and sheepish slaves of his Orwellian surveillance society in the early 2000s, I said this on my national radio talk show:
G.W. Bush is destroying historic Christianity, and in 20 years evangelicalism will be unrecognizable and Christianity will collapse into a minority faith system.
Per the report at the top of this column: WE ARE THERE!
Read the whole thing. I reluctantly disagree with his final conclusion about the resurrection of America – at least the America we used to know. God will save His Remnant, but they will be that, a remnant, likely in newer, smaller nations. But he is to be forgiven for any vestiges of civic nationalism because he is so right – and has been so right – about everything else.
However one slices it, making America great again, means making it American again. That means making it Christian again. Truly Christian, and not zio-GOP-war-lust-churchian. And remember: one cannot stand up unless or until one has fallen. Hope.
