Getting Woke in the Right Way – Part 2

*Adrian Rogers:  “There is an invisible war all around us, and today
there needs to be a modern Paul Revere who tells us to wake up!  America
is in a moral free fall like never before seen in history.  The alarm
has sounded and we need to heed the call.  But what are people doing?
They are rolling over and yawning in the face of God.”
                              GETTING WOKE IN THE RIGHT WAY!
                              (I Corinthians 15:34) (Part 2)
      A.  Our country’s founding is under assault.
      *Psalm 11:3 “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the
righteous do?”
      *Justice David Brewer:  “America was of all nations in the world
justly called a Christian nation because Christianity has
      so largely shaped and molded it.”
      *Justice David Brewer:  “I have said enough to show that
Christianity came to this country with the first colonists, has
      been powerfully identified with its rapid development, colonial
and national, and today exists as a mighty factor in the
      life of the republic.  This is a Christian nation.  The calling of
this republic a Christian nation is not a mere
      pretense, but a recognition of an historical, legal and social
      *John Adams:  “The general principles on which the fathers achieved
independence were the general principles of
      *Justice Joseph Story:  “One of the beautiful boasts of our
municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the
      Common Law.  There never has been a period in which the Common Law
did not recognize Christianity as lying at its
      foundations . . . I verily believe Christianity necessary to the
support of civil society.”
      *Church of The Holy Trinity vs. United States:  “These and many
other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of
      unofficial declarations to the mass organic utterances that this
is a Christian nation.”
      *Harry Truman:  “This is a Christian nation.  More than half a
century ago, that declaration was written into the decrees
      of the highest court in this land.”
      *David Barton (Wallbuilders):  “There is much additional evidence,
and it unequivocally demonstrated that any claim
      that America was not a Christian nation is an unabashed attempt at
historical revisionism.  Of such efforts, former
      Chief Justice William Rehnquist wisely observed, ‘No amount of
repetition of historical errors . . . can make the
      errors true.'”
      B.  Our Christian faith is under assault.
      *Virginia Charter:  ” . . . the propagating of Christian religion
to such people as yet live in darkness and miserable
      ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God.”
      *Mayflower Compact:  “In the name of God, Amen . . . . Having
undertaken for the glory of God and advancement of the
      Christian faith . . . to plant the first colony in the northern
parts of Virginia.”
      *George Washington:  “Whereas it is the duty of all nations to
acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His
      will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly implore His
protection and favor.”
