A Patriot Has Died
The man was not involved in the political process until he heard of the legalization of abortion. He thought of the millions of unborn children who would be slaughtered by those whose main objective was not women’s rights, but profits.
Dr. Jerry Falwell was a man who first of all loved the LORD God, loved his family, and loved his Country. He was motivated to help point this nation back to its Judeo/Christian roots.
I had grown not to agree with all that the “Religious Right” was doing. It just seems that many there believed that the answer for all our moral ills was in the political process. My belief is that the answer for the Country’s moral ills is a change of heart in people through the cross of Jesus Christ. I know and believe that Dr. Falwell believed that too, but he wanted people to be motivated to get out and vote their Christian conscience. And, I have, as well as many others.
Those who know Dr. Falwell would be able to say that he was a genuine Christian man. He sincerely believed and with conviction that what he has done was for God, Country, and his fellow American.
There is no doubt in my mind that Jerry Falwell loved God, His Word, His people, His Church and people in general. It seems that all that he did he believed he was right in doing so, until he found it to be wrong.
Keep his family, Thomas Road Baptist Church, and Liberty University in your prayers.
The posts I will be sharing in the next few days are from another blog I started in 2007. I moved it to wordpress as a blog by the same name. I am endeavoring to downsize so I am moving this one through a copy and paste method. From April 19, 2007.
There are many who have called the United States of America a Patriotic Nation. I believe her to be so myself. If we mean by patriotic that we stand by our nations leaders when they send our troops to war. We are pretty much patriotic. If we mean by patriotic that we love our country, then, I again would agree.
Our nation is, however, a nation that is straying from its godly, Biblical, Christian roots. Whether we all agree or not the United States of America was started upon these principles which began with the Bible.
There are some, and that number is growing more and more to believe patriotism is greater than faith in God. Patriotism has taken the place of God. When we have gotten to that place then, we are in sure trouble. A patriotic nation without God is just a pagan nation, and its morals, ethics, and family structure fades into oblivion.
I am growing in the opinion that all nations are operated by the godless, including our own. It is powered by “Prince of the power of the air”. It is sad to say. It is sad to think, and this may be a dark, negative thought, but I would rather put patriotism aside and take on godliness. That will be our only hope.
