LFC Comments by: A Watchman on the Wall
Mr. Barton is extremely knowledgeable about the Bible and American history.
At the 36:23 time mark of the video he provides these very interesting statistics that clarifies for me why our country is sliding into the abyss.
- There are 382,000 churches in the United States
- 72% do not agree with the teachings of the Bible
David Barton is an evangelical Christian political activist and author. He is the founder of WallBuilders, LLC, a Texas-based organization
Thanks to Tom Niewulis of Geauga County for this following link to an article written by David Wilson, Christian author and blogger.
Excerpts from the article:
“Given that America is filling up with competing mobs now, one of the things that believing Christians ought to do is go back to the Scriptures to see what we can learn about mobs.”
“Given the events of the last few years, there are more than a few disheartened secular conservatives out there. They see the radical left growing in strength and influence, and know that unless it is somehow (miraculously) stopped, their beloved America is done for. They see the squishy Republican establishment, and wonder if they would ever be willing to fight for anything. They see the soft evangelical “culturally engaged” center, lusting after the respect of the world, and willing to lick dirt to get it.”
“To those who are in that position, I simply want to invite you to come to Christ. Call upon Him, and ask Him to bring you to the Father. We can have no salvation without a Savior, no word without the Word, no transcendent anchor without a Lord. And I want to ask you to consider Christ, not only as the Lord of your life, but also as the Lord of our public square.”
“The alternative is militant atheism in the public square, and by militant atheism I do not mean mild agnosticism. I mean the savage gods of militant atheism. And if you have begun to wonder, as you ought to have done, how “all this” could have happened in America, the answer is that we turned our backs on Christ.”
[LFC Comment: We have also been told that even in some Jewish temples liberalism / leftism has taken hold and has corrupted their teachings.]
