ARE AMERICANS LOSING THEIR FREEDOM?

Satan entered Judas, Jesus’ disciple and Judas betrayed Christ to be crucified. Who else has Satan entered? Satan tempted Christ by offering Him to rule the whole world. Has he offered that position to anyone else? If he did, would they accept?

We are slowly losing our freedom as our politicians are preparing for a one-world government that the Bible predicts will occur. We must become aware that we are being conditioned to accepting the loss of freedom and our personal rights in order for that one-world government to happen.

An economics teacher once said: greed or ambition works in a capitalistic system. Envy and slothfulness promotes socialism. You rarely hear greed being hyped. However, envy is a great motivator, used often. Which economic system will give you the greatest freedom? Is it Socialism or a Capitalistic system? Do you think those who are envious of others and not wanting to work are going to provide to society the greatest freedom? They are willing to give up freedom for the offer of entitlements. The envious want the government (you) to give them what they want. They then will not have to be held accountable for their personal needs. They believe in financial redistribution and government support.

The capitalistic system isn’t perfect but it does promote entrepreneurship, the act of being an entrepreneur or one who undertakes innovations, finance and business acumen in an effort to transform innovations into economic goods. One group is willing to be committed and the others are unwilling to accept commitment or accept responsibility.
I never believed our country would be debating from where does our freedom come? Some don’t care where it comes from as long as they have it. If you are a veteran, most believe it is important to know. Too many take freedom for granted. Some believe they deserve freedom and pay little attention to how we got it or what must we do to keep it. Others believe freedom comes naturally and they were born to be free.

Mark 3:24 – 25 – “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”
Matthew 12:25 – “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.”

Have you noticed how our leadership wants to divide the rich against the poor, the minorities against Caucasians, non-believers verses Christians and Jews, the Democrats against the Republicans? Is the purpose behind it to divide and conquer? Why is it that politicians want to deny there is a God?

The debate that exists: does freedom come from our Creator or does it come from government, their laws or regulations? The majority believe individual liberty and freedom come from God. My greatest concern is that we are becoming a nation, so divided, that it may be too late to get us back to being patriotic to a free-market economic system and a true believer in the good that America does for the world. I see radicals and activists with a cause wanting to change America into becoming a socialist state with the redistribution of income. This is just the beginning of a world government under the United Nations.

What may cause us to lose our freedom? We are teaching our young people they do not need to be held accountable for earning a living. Have you noticed how liberal our colleges and universities have become? Many young people don’t believe they need to be committed to anyone, even in marriage or to any career. They don’t need to be givers, it is best to be a “taker” and live on government handouts. Do they think this will keep them having freedom and liberties? Does one believe it is satisfying to live their life always dependent on someone else? Who can possibly take our freedom? Is it OSHA, EPA, NLRB, ObamaCare, the United Nations or our government’s regulations such as what your children can eat at a school cafeteria?

John 8:31 – 32 & 36 – “Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”… So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.”
Galatians 5:1 – “So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.”

Most Christians believe that all rights of life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness was given by God and found in Scripture. Our constitution was founded by Godly men intending to make sure that freedom would continually exist. I don’t understand why even some Christians believe socialism, with its many regulations and government control, is an improvement.

For most of us who have been veterans believe our freedom has been maintained because of a strong military force. It is conceivable that had we not been prepared, the world could have been controlled by Germany, Japan, Russia or other nations who believe we can be defeated. Yet, there are many who believe that we need to reduce our military and appeasement with an enemy will protect us.

History could have told us a few years back that we were headed for a financial disaster when people were buying homes they could not afford and prices were escalating to unrealistic levels. It seems we had about ten years of unusual prosperity and then the bubble burst. We didn’t learn from the 1989 real estate bubble, the 1990s technology bubble, bubbles in Japan and an oil bubble when oil went up to $140 then to $30 a barrel. Will we have another bubble? We never seem to learn from history.

Freedom is not being able to do anything you want. It is doing the right thing acceptable to the society in which we live & God’s laws. It is our right to do things and accept the consequences for what we do. Freedom does not eliminate one’s need for being accountable, being committed or being responsible.

I believe the only hope for America, at this point, is to have a tremendous spiritual revival. Study the history of Israel. When they rejected God, bad things happened. We Americans need an attitude change. God loves a “cheerful giver” so stop relying on big government.

Does the government really owe you? If they try to take care of you, they will soon “own” you? If the government becomes bankrupt and God ignores us, what occurs then? Where will your freedom come from? What kind of freedom do you expect under a one world government controlled by the Antichrist?
