Day of Liberty Part II—The Responsibility :: By Bill Wilson

Prior to the last presidential election, the progressives (communists) had a long-term grip over the US government. The nation was being transformed, or remade, into a socialist system. It was fast approaching tyranny as evidenced by what we now know of how the left and the deep state tried to prevent Donald Trump from being president, and how it is now trying to remove him.

In essence, the nation reversed a secret coup of the Constitution. As we approach Independence Day, let’s recall the 2016 election where Christian men and women voted responsibly in choosing between an imperfect man and a woman who openly stood against the precepts of God. Since then, the godless have raged against America.

Christians have responsibility to freedom. Freedom of worship permits disciples of Christ to preach the gospel to all creatures.

“Freedom sees in religion the companion of its struggles and its triumphs, the cradle of its infancy, the divine source of its rights. It considers religion as the safeguard of mores; and mores as the guarantee of laws and the pledge of its own duration”—these are the words of Alexis de Tocqueville, a French aristocrat who came to America in the 1830s to observe what made the country so great. His “Democracy in America” is considered a historic treasure about the unique success of the United States. Tocqueville wrote that America is free because of its collective Christian religion.

He pointed out that the laws that governed the Plymouth colony were derived from the Hebrew texts. In the later 1600s, even the law of Connecticut stated that man shall not “have or worship any other God, but the Lord God.” He said that Americans “have succeeded in incorporating somehow into one another and combining marvelously…the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom.”

According to the laws and the nature of early Americans, men and women who identify as progressives, socialists, communists, etc., would not qualify as legitimate leaders because their very nature denies God and embraces the state as the ultimate source of human rights, religious expression, and physical authority (tyranny).

Cotton Mather wrote in 1820, “There is a liberty of corrupt nature, which is affected both by men and beasts, to do what they list; and this liberty is inconsistent with authority, impatient of all restraint; by this liberty we are all inferior; ‘tis the grand enemy of truth and peace, and all the ordinances of God are bent against it. But there is a civil, a moral, a federal liberty, which is the proper end and object of authority; it is a liberty for that only which is just and good; for this liberty you are to stand with the hazard of your very lives.”

Romans 8:2 says, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”

The foundation of progressivism/socialism/communism is abolishing all religion and morals, making these systems manifestations of sin and death. We have a responsibility to stand in the gap.

Day of Liberty Part I—The Situation :: By Bill Wilson

Rasmussen Reports that a survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted June 21-24 indicated that 59% of all voters are concerned that those opposed to President Donald Trump’s policies will resort to violence, and 31% believe there will be a second Civil War within five years.

Couple this with a former president praising the “resistance” efforts of Organizing For America, Antifa and other organizations; and Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) calls for people to deny food services to those who agree with Trump. Democrats are embracing Democrat Socialist Congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s call for a “progressive” revolution.

As we approach Independence Day, our country faces a threat to all liberty.

What do these liberals and the vast majority of Democratic Party officeholders have in common? They fancy themselves as “progressives.” This is a polite, politically acceptable name for socialists or communists.

Progressiveness is a path to tyranny and spiritual darkness. No communist society is free. No true socialist society is free. Why do you think all these people want open borders? It is so they can promise everything to people with nothing and secure their votes. That’s exactly how Cortez got the nomination. Once those votes are secured, it won’t be long before the Constitutional Republic falls to socialism. I have heard a lot of Christians say that this doesn’t matter—that we are of another kingdom. This is wrong-minded thinking.

The American experiment guaranteed the right to free speech and religious freedom. The American dream, however imperfect in its practical implementation, resulted in much of the world being evangelized by Christians. The liberty to speak freely about Jesus Christ supported the Great Commission like no other country in the history of the world. Progressivism, socialism, communism would bring a sharp and violent end to this liberty because these forms of tyranny are based in the Communist Manifesto, which states:

“Communism abolishes eternal truths; it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis.”

These are antichrist political systems. Those who agree with them and claim to be followers of Christ should repent.

What of God do the leaders and followers of the progressive resistance have in common with Christianity? Oh, they ply people with emotions of compassion based on half-truths and twisted facts. But what of Godly principles? Most of them would even say that all religions serve one god, the same god. What does the Lord say?

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3).

Allowing a “progressive revolution” is consenting godlessness to advance.

As Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

We are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free. It extends to the politics of tyranny and to those who would proclaim evil as good. It is bondage. We must overcome evil with good.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
