The Harsh Reality of Politics in the United States

The Democratic Party have been better and more successful as a disciple of their ideology than any other political party in the United States. Meanwhile, churches have failed at communicating a persuasive argument for the rights of the unborn. While cable news networks continue to blame former President Donald Trump for the Republican’s disappointing midterm results, too many so-called conservatives care more about being liked by the mainstream media than standing up for any political conviction.

Jesus approached and, [a]breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them [b]into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you [c]all the days ([d]perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. [e]Amen (so let it be), Matthew 28:18-20.

Then again, maybe I’m forgetting about everyone who did speak out prior to being banned or suspended by social media. Perhaps the fear of being cancelled has silenced many conservatives from sharing what they really feel and think. Regardless of who is to blame, democrats, liberals, and progressives always appear to be a few steps ahead of republicans. While the Bible is designed to shape Judeo Christian values, Democrats have used the National Education Association to push their ideology the past 50 years.

Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it, Proverbs 22:6.

When the Bible and prayer was removed from public education, this opened the door for substitutes. Pete Hegseth mentions this is in his latest book The Battle for the American Mind as patriotism and the flag initially replaced religion. When you examine what’s going on at colleges and universities today across the United States, the Democratic party has successfully shaped a generation of children to become community organizers, environmentalists, and embrace progressive causes. Until this issue is addressed, Democrats will continue to own big tech, cable news and the print media. Only solutions will transform America.

S.A.N.S. Episode 170: Pray in the USA

Morgan Cryar’s breakout album Fuel on the Fire jump started his rise as a Christian artist. When Pray in the USA was released as a single on this album, this song reached the top of contemporary music charts. By the end on the 1980’s Cryar made his mark as a songwriter and producer. If there was ever a time for prayer to make its return to the United States, now is the time.

Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand), Jeremiah 33:3.

The attached video reminds me a young Billy Idol, sitting in a classroom where prayer was banned in the early 1960’s. The lyrics of Morgan Cryar’s Pray in the USA is similar to Pete Hegseth’s latest book The Battle for the American Mind. When you read Pete’s book, it serves as a history lesson of public education in the United States and illustrates how and why God and prayer was been kicked out of class.
