The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
“Religion is no less the companion of liberty in all its battles and its triumphs; the cradle of its infancy, and the divine source of its claims. The safeguard of morality is religion, and morality is the best security of law as well as the surest pledge of freedom.”
Alex de Tocqueville
“Nothing is more certain, than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a
people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.”
About the Book:
Observing the landscape of American culture reveals a disconcerting trend; when analyzed exposes a philosophy of self-destruction. This philosophy reflects an abandonment of the ideals upon which this country achieved its exalted position among the nations of the world. This deviation from the sage thinking of the great men who founded this nation, and framed its government and the rule of law, has created a sociopolitical divide that seems to be pushing the limits of sanity.
Due to revisionist and deconstructionist history concerning the theological influence on America’s founding, today most citizens do not understand the underlying basis of this nation’s stability and greatness. This lack of understanding resides in both the religious and the irreligious. The consequence of this lack of knowledge has been, and is becoming more so, deleterious not only to our societal equilibrium, but also our prolongation as a free people. Solidity and liberty are inherently linked to God. A nation that ignores this fact does so at its great peril.
