The Return of the Christian Conservative

Today I spent over 2 hours on the telephone with the IRS.  I was amazed at how disorganized this agency still is.  You would think that after all these years someone would know something about their jobs at the IRS.  I had only one question, “How do I file my taxes for an organization that is both Christian and political?”  Now I had no idea I was putting forth to those at the IRS, the most difficult question of the past 50 years.  It was as if I spoke words that discombobulated their whole system of thinking and caused the IRS to experience a meltdown of some sort.  I was transferred back in forth about 6 times.  If you think I caused a meltdown of the system by putting forth that question.  I then told them that my non profit organization would be non-tax exempt.  Man do I need to get out into the world of government more.  Making this statement really caused the wiring in the thinking of those at the IRS to go completely haywire.  It was as if I entered a foreign land and asked a question in a language no one understood. 

One thing I learned by my two hour and 15 minute conversation with the on-hold music, was that there is no such thing as an organization that is both Christian and Political.  If anyone wishes to receive tax exempt status they must adhere to the government’s new standard of separation of church and state.  Either you are a Christian organization or you are a political organization.  But you can not put Christianity and politics together.  Well that is until God through me into this movement to save our country.  Today, Conservative Moms for America established one of a rare few if not, the first Christian Political organization of our anti-God era.  The reason why there is so few or no such organizations that exist today is because the government has used their "golden entitlement bait" to cause organizations to become dependent on their handouts.  This has also eliminated the influential impacts of the once power movement formerly known as the "Christian Conservative".  I am amazed at how dependent Americans have become of our government.  I would rather pay taxes on my donations than to allow the government to control me through tax exempt entitlements. 

Conservative Moms for America can now accept donations.  However, those donations will not be able to be used as charitable deductions for tax purposes by those who give.  And I will gladly pay taxes on those donations if it allows me the freedom to bring back to this country a voice and a place for the Christian Conservative.  There was a time in our country when the Christian Conservative was a viable watchdog in maintaining morality and accountability within the culture of American life.  However, progressives conjured up an entitlement that would soon quiet them just as they have, minorities, corporate America, the financial market, the housing industry and everyone else that salivates at the site of a government handout. 

There is a manner in which we can still enjoy the freedom our founding fathers fought for us to enjoy as Americans.  It does come at a cost, and is every bit worth that cost.   As I look at this metaphorically, I see so many who have voluntarily bowed down and allowed the voice of the Christian Conservative to be sealed by the millions of dollars that have been received through tax-exempt entitlements.  Are our Christian principles worth more than a tax exempt?   I have heard so many times Christians scoff at those who live off government entitlements, but are they not doing the same thing?  If the thought of not getting to write a donation off, causes grief to a tax payer, isn’t that a handout as well? Today, the voice of the Christian Conservative has returned.  Conservative Moms for will be a place where Christians can speak boldly about their faith, express their views about government and politics and endorse the candidates they believe can represent their values all at the same time.  And I hope that our members will do so with great honor and pride for our God who deserves it and our country that can not survive without Him.  

Saying that the last two months of getting pushed into this battle to take our country back has been an "eye-opener", would truly be an understatement, it has been more like being awakened from a nightmare, that well, is not a nightmare.  We are excited about the New Year and all the great things that await us as we champion the cause for freedom.  This will be my final blog of the year and I am happy to write this with excitement as the New Year roles in.  I believe that in 2010, America will witness the return of the Christian Conservative and that this return will bring about great opportunities for the futures of our children.   I am so thankful for all of the wonderful friends I have met during my first year of blogging and I pray that all of you enjoy a great Christmas with your loved ones and family and that the New Year will bring you a renewed love for God, your family and your country.  May you all be blessed!  Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Years.

America is no longer a God Fearing Nation

President Obama’s remarks last summer that America is not a Christian nation, brought outrage to many Americans.  I too could not believe he would appear on a worldwide platform and say something like this about the country that has afforded him such a place in our country’s history.  However, if President Obama would have said instead, that “America is no longer a God-fearing nation, I would have had to agree with him.  As I step back from the drama of the day and really look at how we behave as Americans I would have to say that there is an aspect of our character that was once present in America and has been lost.  In the last 50 years, America has gone through a very dramatic transition from being a nation whose God was the LORD, and who lived in the knowledge that God was a powerful and righteous overseer over their lives, to citizens who now believe they can live in any manner they desire. 

This is why we are now witnessing the worst corruption in our government that has ever been witnessed by any other generation.  The policies of Franklin Roosevelt actually signaled a parting of ways from God and to the Constitution of the United States.  Our founding fathers were adamant about the government staying in its place and not becoming a power within itself, being respectfully in submission to the Creator.  However, Franklin Roosevelt began the expansion of government and it has been expanding ever since; undermining our Constitution at each stroke of the pen in the creation of expansion policies. Many decisions that would come afterward further signaled that we were heading in a wrong direction.

I have thought for a long time that the removal of prayer from school was the start of this departure from being a nation of God-fearing people, but the process began many years before.  Still having this decision come to past showed that the leaders of our nation had become arrogant and desired to rule themselves rather than remain God-fearing men who would seek God’s direction.  There was a time in our country’s history when Americans showed their dissatisfaction with policies by rising up in revolt.  However, something about America was gone and it would lead us into the place we are witnessing today.  Our judicial system was already taken over by men who desired their rule and not that of our God or the Constitution He inspired.  What was not obvious was that the citizens of America had also abandoned the principles of our founding fathers. The legalization of abortion should have been the great red flag that would signal the end of America as was once known.  I can not even imagine the heart break God experienced as He watched America begin such a vicious attack against innocent life.  The cries of the many precious little souls that have been murdered goes all the way up to heaven.

Only a rebellious and defiant people could create such a horror in the presence of an Almighty God and have no remorse.  No one stood up in defense of this tragedy, not the church, not other parents, not anyone.  Surely if the fear of God existed even then Americans would have taken to the streets in protest, but instead everyone kept on with life as usual.  Then came the sexual revolution more evidence that the fear of God was absent from the center of American life.  The liberal Left who were the culprits of these acts of rebellion continued behind the scenes taking advantage of the new American attitude that no longer feared God. 

Next was the coming out of homosexuals, where men and women paraded their sexual defiance in the face of God.  Not feeling that God had been radically moved at this point, the radicals begin to change what Americans believed, by creating the concept of political correctness.  Political correctness replaced Americans dependence on God’s Word to instruct and lead their lives.  Everything about this concept is an attack against Biblical teachings.  It impacted how we thought, what we thought was right and wrong and how we viewed others.  It is what caused our public school system to become an institute of indoctrination and anti-God teaching.  It is what brought about the post modern thinking of moral relativism and the corruption and immorality that has destroyed our ability to be God-fearing people. 

So how do we become God fearing people again?  By believing that God is the absolute authority over our lives and by replacing the garbage and polluted thinking of political correctness with the Biblical teachings found in the Word of God and returning to live under God’s rule,  we can experience America again.  Without returning to dependence on God and abiding in His Word we will not ever experience the America our founding fathers established.  Without re-educating ourselves in regards to our founding documents and electing leaders who understand these documents as well, we will not experience the America our founding fathers established.  As I have been pushed into the center of the battle for America, I see a spiritual problem that continues to be neglected and over looked.  So many new groups are focusing on the politics as the center of our issues, but it is not the central problem. 

The work which I believe God called me into and I have began through the Conservative Moms for America group will continue to battle the spiritual issues that have derailed our nation.  Fearing God means that we respect His authority over life and His right to reign over us.  It also means that we fear the consequence of His discipline and power to chastise us.  We understand that there is a final judgment that has an eternal effect over our lives and we fear the consequences of His judgment.  America has become a nation that no longer fears God and it is evident in many ways within American life.  Remember Psalms 14:1, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good.”

Life Goes On

Good morning to all in the blogsphere. 

I am sure some of you have heard by now of the recent turmoil on our newly created Conservative Moms for America.  I am thankful that God sees all things and will give His account of life from His prospective in the end.  I must say though that God is moving me forward and I wish all who have left us well. I have been around long enough to know that when things like this happens people will leave and emotions will flare.  But God has kept me contained in all of this.  I have and always will admire the many wonderful women that God provided for me to start my work in this fight to take back our country for God.  But I must say, I have an incredible peace that most would not expect in a time like this.

Even after parting ways with close trusted friends, my heart feels no hard feelings.  Today I just feel like it's another day to work in the things of the LORD.  There are always those who will take sides and have issue, but I know that there is a God that is high and lifted up who knows exactly my hearts intent and motives and He will deal with what He finds according to what He finds, not what people perceives or even what I perceive.  From this experience, I just wanted to encourage all of you that are working in this fight to keep fighting.  Attacks will come, misunderstandings will happen, and people will draw their own conclusions, but each man will be held accountable for their own actions.  So keep fighting for our freedoms and liberties and for our country to come back to that place where God sits as our Sovereign leader.

I am thankful that God gives us grace to learn and grow in this life, but we can not leave our experiences even when they are not the most favorable, being changed in a negative manner.  In all of life's seasons, there is a place to grow and learn.  But we don't become bitter or apathetic because that only prevents God from showing us His way.  The Scriptures tell us that each day we must deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Him.  He has already provided victory, but we must show that our faith is one that can endure for us in this life.  God has already prepared me for dealing with painful experiences so I can look to Him and say, okay God what should I take from this one.  God is just amazing, He really is.  He wants to mold and grow us and show us how to follow His will.  As long as we believe that life goes on, and that will be faithful to guide us through this journey He created for us, God will take us to incredible places.

I am sure based on the opinions of others involved, many will form their opinions, but they have a right to.  This is what we get to enjoy as Americans, our freedom to draw our own conclusions and opinions.  So today I just wanted to encourage you to know that God is aware of every detail of our lives.  There is nothing hidden from Him.  Circumstances arise but it is not the circumstance that makes or breaks us but the way we handle or react to them.  For me, God has more and I sense more,  so life goes on as I seek to do the will of my Father.  If you are in the midst of a hard circumstance, don't allow that circumstance to cloud your judgment.  I leave you with Proverbs 1:1-7,

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
       2 To know wisdom and instruction,
      To perceive the words of understanding,
       3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
      Justice, judgment, and equity;
       4 To give prudence to the simple,
      To the young man knowledge and discretion—
       5 A wise man will hear and increase learning,
      And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
       6 To understand a proverb and an enigma,
      The words of the wise and their riddles.
       7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
      But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
