When America Lost their Spiritual War

As I student, I learned great details about World War 1 and World War 2 in History class. Between reading books and listening to lectures, I was forced to memorize important battles, dates and leaders to pass unit tests. While I am grateful of the public education that I received, one topic was never touched. I had to attend seminary to ascertain the true history of America minus the politics and politically correct textbooks,

Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden? – Genesis 3:1

Institutions up and down the East Coast like Harvard and Duke were established by churches. These schools for higher education were initially Christian based designed to spread and fulfill the Magna Carta and Great Commission. Yet, just as the Judges in the Old Testament began to do what was right in their own eyes, America has forgotten it’s spiritual heritage. Although Great Awakenings revived faith in this country, America lost their spiritual war in the middle of the 20th Century.

In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. 11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. 13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place], Ephesians 6:10-13.

on June 18, 1963, Atheists won their case before the Supreme Court. This victory for the left was the beginning of the end of Christianity as the dominant worldview in America. When this highest court in the land made it illegal for the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:1-15) to be said and the Bible to be read in public schools, God was officially removed from education. While Christian Academies still exist today, traces of God continue to be removed from public squares across the country. America’s current spiritual conditional is merely the consequences of losing this spiritual war. Perhaps, the prayers of the saints is the only thing left to save America from becoming the latest fallen empire.

Project 1619

A staff meeting at the New York Times was recently leaked to the media.  The content of this meeting revealed a new focus entitled Project 1619.  The goal of this journalism plan is to expose America’s Original Sin which began 400 years ago.  According to progressives, this unforgivable sin was the arrival of slaves from Africa, purchased by the wealthy in the state of Virginia to do hard labor.  Based upon the initial piece, America’s founding fathers are under attack along with the spiritual heritage of this country.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me, John 14:6.

Nikole Hannah-Jones had the honor of writing the first article to implement Project 1619.  According to the New York Times Magazine, Project 1619 aims to reframe this country’s history.  Hannah-Jones uses a theory of Erik Homburger Erikson on the psychological development of human beings to prove her point.  Unfortunately, Nikole disregards the work of William Wilberforce who was instrumental in ending Great Britain’s ties to the slave trade.  If you are a parent of children, curriculum for Project 1619 is coming soon to a public school near you.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come, John 16:13.

Fortunately, this attack on history is not being ignored.  Groups such as Steeling the Mind of America hold an annual conference hosted by Compass International.  This year marks the 26th anniversary of this event.  One of my favorite books is Steeling the Mind of America Volume 2.  Author John Ankerberg relies on famous historians to educate readers of America’s spiritual founding.  The only way to defeat Project 1619 is to follow in the footsteps of the Bereans, Acts 17:11, testing everything that you hear and read with the Bible.  When you do, Christians will be able to expose the falsehoods of Project 1619’s narrow minded look at history.
