Say goodbye to God; the warring cry of new-age philosophers
Written article after article, newscasters who are true believers, and all those who have remained solid in the true belief of God are speaking out. What is this truth that comes to us through the Holy Trinity; Father, Jesus Son of God, and the Holy Spirit? It is the mandate given by God freely to each believer. We are to teach, promote, and evangelize to the many millions of souls pleading to know the real truths about salvation and the person of God who has promised it. Without the willingness of each responsible Christian to carry this message all hope will collapse.
It seems just like yesterday those of us who have reached our golden years were learning the simple prayers needed to receive holy communion for the first time. The very thought of receiving Jesus Christ into our small and innocent bodies and becoming one with him was the most beautiful thought we could have learned. Give credit to the nuns who at that time were the teachers of our faith and each should have our love for sharing our first spiritual pledge.
I remember when attending elementary school the first thing we collectively participated in was to stand and face the flag of the stars and stripes and repeated; “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”
Of course, when any local group, organization, or nation wants to promote their specific requirements for entrance into their philosophy the use of allegiance is always required. The difference with most adversaries is what the allegiance is geared to. We grew up believing in honesty, living peacefully with our neighbors, and becoming one within our chosen church of worship.
What has happened to the wonderful desire to receive the Lord in a deep spiritual sense of who he is? Why have the once special meaning of the Church Sacraments now become a quick teaching and participation in order to stop religious education?
We can now look at the corruption within our public school system where in many states the parents have been shut out of the curriculum decisions and a lot of written materials are off-limits to the parents. Before I forget, the Pledge of Allegiance is no longer spoken and the name of God; well for young children unless their parents are still promoting some adherence to the holy name of God and attending church his name is no longer mentioned.
A recent news alert on TV stated how many children were shooting and killing other children. What has happened? The removal of God from the schools for one. Teaching adverse philosophies that will enhance anti-Christian as well as anti-American beliefs and truths.
The best we can do is keep reminding the readers of the current indoctrinating philosophy that is brain-washing adults with few or no belief system, and the children who are the most vulnerable and the leaders of our future being taught similarities of the former Nazi regime. Remember that and how so many were exterminated because they stood in Hitler’s way because of their non-adherence to his philosophy and especially because they were Jews.
