One Solitary Life

All the armies that have ever marched
All the navies that have ever sailed
All the parliaments that have ever sat
All the kings that ever reigned put together
Have not affected the life of mankind on earth
As powerfully as that one solitary life

From One Solitary Life

I am an historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very center of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history.

H. G. Wells

One Response to One Solitary Life

  • A Nation in Decline is a Nation in Need
    Can you imagine the thoughts and anticipation in the hearts of those first pilgrims as they began their voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to a new land they had never seen? They were leaving behind their homeland with friends, family, and familiarity, for a hostile unknown, untamed, and uncertain future. What brave souls they were. What great hope they held in their hearts. Fear was not an obstacle to their desire to partake of a new life in a new world.
    The brave souls who left all behind in Eastern Europe to come to a new land known as America were seeking not merely opportunity but freedom, freedom from oppressive rule and taxation of kings and queens. As all men of all ages they lived and died being bound by two things, the rule of laws set by those with power over them and their hope and trust in their God. They came from Spain, France, Portugal, England, and Ireland settling everywhere along our east and southern shores and eventually the coast of California. Understand this for certain, their former masters may have been of a variety but their God was one in the same.
    After arriving in their new land these hardy souls seeking freedom and opportunity in gratitude to their God with hope in their future made it obvious by naming their settlements “New” this and that or giving it the name of a favorite Saint. Their first common structure was not a town hall but a Church to worship and offer thanks to their God. Who was that God? It was not Allah, or Buddha, or any thing else. Regardless of the denomination the one thing essential in all the churches was the Bible. America from the very beginning was a nation of believers in Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham. It has always been a Judea-Christian nation. Another thing to be certain of is that when these people of God came together to declare their unity and independence from all their former masters they were guided by their common faith to declare all men were created equal by their creator God and as such had inalienable rights such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This Christian conscience is what enabled our forefathers whose ancestors had lived centuries fighting each other at the command of power hungry rulers who enslaved those they conquered to eventually end the slavery of fellow Americans who had been brought here from Africa and forced to serve on plantations and as house servants. In retrospect those immigrants, God bless them, were exposed during their captivity to Christianity and became vivid examples for all of us of endurance and faithfulness in the face of persecution.
    The truth of all of this had been accepted for over two hundred years until our current president from nowhere soon after his first election declared to the world that we were no longer a Christian nation.

    That boastful announcement was not a statement of fact it was a wishful personal belief. It also was an indication of the design of his personal agenda to transform America into a nation without a valid constitution constructed by men of faith whose coin and currency bore the inscription “In God We Trust”, and a nation unrestrained by Biblical integrity or a devout Christian conscience. Why would the leader of this beloved land of ours be so bold as to declare the demise of our heritage and its conscience and integrity? Was he remorsefully announcing our loss or proudly proclaiming the beginning of a new era he was about to impose upon us?
    There is little doubt after decades of progressive liberal indoctrination throughout our universities, public schools and the mainstream media our society had gradually eroded its moral standards by capitulating to the onslaught of anti-Christian rhetoric deceitfully presented as benevolent social justice. Evil is as Evil does and where better to start a last ditch effort by its Legions to corrupt the worlds most powerful Christian nation than within its own government. We can not deny its presence in the agenda of politicians, many who profess to be Christians, in the hollowed halls in Washington along with socially corrupt governorships and big city mayors all over the country driving us to bankruptcy with endless entitlement programs and dividing the people into secular camps of perverse but (now) legal behavior railing against the founding values of our nation mocking the Church and her moral teaching under the guise of social justice or benevolent equal benefits and rights.
    Our country has lost a cherished pride in our deep religious faith based on Jude-Christian values as woven into the fabric of our society. In a single lifetime (mine for instance) we have abandoned things like Blue Laws to protect the sanctity of the Sabbath and two parent church on Sunday families with stay at home mothers and embraced 24/7 shopping to satisfy a mounting hunger for every imaginable comfort and personal desire and become complacent with not only single moms and gay marriage but government subsidized abortion clinics for mothers wishing to kill their unborn paid for by a government run healthcare system which forces under specific penalties private companies and religious institutions to cooperate financially in this Holocaust of our Silent Citizens and even against their deeply held religious principles to actually perform the butchery as an act of social necessity.
    Our most urgent need today is not to avoid an economic collapse or the financial cliff but rather we need to ignite and initiate a spiritual revival and search our souls admitting to ourselves we have turned from and left behind the only salvation we really have, the Lord Jesus Christ and his Divine Mercy.
