Deceiving Children

The contentions of the ungodly designed, to sway others to their immoral causes through lies and deceits, remind me of a BC comic strip. Two prehistoric men are seen lying on a small embankment looking up at the billowy clouds, as many of us have done for thousands of years hence. "There's a cloud that looks like man's interminable struggle to influence his fellow man," observed the one.

"Looks like a bunny rabbit with floppy ears to me," his friend responded.

"Like I said."

History is filled with astute men of God who carefully considered the Scripture in relation to the world they lived in. These are men who changed their societies in a dramatic way. They gave us the freedoms we now enjoy. They preserved Christianity for all generations to come. Those of us who will look at the faith of these men with humility in acknowledgment of who they were, will be the ones who will see the truth.

Gratitude for the faith of our nation's past leaders is an unusual perspective for most of those who graduate from the colleges and universities throughout the country today. Liberal professors have filled these youngsters' minds with perversions of the truth of history that would knock those who lived in those eras right off their seats. Our American forefathers are being portrayed in a light that intends to cast them in the same shadow as the liberals who desire to perpetrate the distortion. It is the revisionist's intention to re-write history in a manner that portrays our past leaders as more pagan and less Christian, so that the liberal's ungodly views might appear to the populace as the norm rather than the aberrance. It is by using this device that they believe their ideas will be more readily accepted. It has served them well.

A young college student wrote to our local news paper in response to a claim that I had made regarding the Christian world view of Abraham Lincoln in relation to the abolition of slavery. In the article entitled Lincoln: Politician, not Emancipator, this impressionable lady insisted, "All the way through elementary, junior high and high school, I was taught by my teachers that Abraham Lincoln was 'The Great Emancipator,' the savior to all African-Americans. It wasn't until I was in college that I was taught Lincoln's real motivation for the abolishing of slavery.

"The recent letter writer contended: 'Christianity was the foundation of Lincoln's actions concerning the abolition of slavery; the single most humanitarian act accomplished in American history.' That's like the Ku Klux Klan's use of the Bible as the motivation for their actions.

"The only reason Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation was created was to make the United States one nation instead of North and South. In order to accomplish that, he needed more soldiers -- slaves -- to fight so the war could be ended quickly.

"Abraham Lincoln 'opposed slavery on moral, political and economic grounds,' according to the book American History: a Survey. He believed it contradicted the American idea of democracy. The book also states it was Lincoln's concern 'for the economic well-being of the white masses -- his commitment to the ideology of free labor -- that impelled him to oppose the introduction of slavery into the territories.'

"He was not concerned with the plight of the African slave. He believed the 'jobs' the slaves had should be given to the poor whites, without the usual treatment of beating them and raping the women.

"It was politically correct for Abraham Lincoln to be against slavery. It had nothing to do with any Christian act, and most definitely was not a 'humanitarian' one either.

"Freedom is being equal despite your race, religious beliefs, sex, etc. President Abraham Lincoln believed the white race was superior to any other. That describes a bigot and racist, to me."

Well. . . Isn't that like a burr in you pants! To the one who still has an amount of respect for our nation's history, hearing this garble is like stepping on a rusty nail.

It appears that our youth are under the impression that since Lincoln saw that the Constitution is not consistent with slavery, one can deduce that he wasn't motivated by God in his feelings towards the plight of the black. Because he understood the poor economics of a failing system of slavery, he had no compassion on the oppressed. Apparently, we are not hearing all the facts here.

Just how are young students coming up with these ideas anyway? Where did these attitudes come from? What are they teaching in our universities to generate such an opinion as this?


Brand New History

To search out the answer to these questions, I only had to explore my own past -- to a time when I too was under the influence of the liberal college professorship of the California State University system. So I opened the doors to own bookrack to uncover college texts that date from the days of Viet Nam. It was an era when we all were beginning to question the value system that created what we interpreted as the hypocrisy around us.

There in the middle of studies on everything from philosophy to evolution I beheld a small, long-neglected paperback entitled American Political Tradition, written by Richard Hofstadter. Blowing off the years of dust, I opened up the musty pages to one of the articles I had once read. It was filled with the highlights of a young, and impressionistic college freshman who was sitting in his first weeks of the collegiate U S history course.

I remember the class well, for it was so instrumental in shaping my mind in those days. The instructor surprised us all by informing us that he would not be testing us in the same manner as we were use to in high school.

"You will not be required to memorize dates," he assured us, as a sigh of relief of the anxious crowd dissipated the tension in the room. "Rather, you will be held accountable to the understanding of concepts. These concepts are much different than what you have learned before. In your early stages of education, in their zeal to instill patriotism, your teachers presented U S history in a light that is very romantic, but nonetheless far from the truth. The stories they presented are myths, nothing more than legends that have been built up through the ages. In this class, you will uncover what really happened, and how short our founding fathers measure up in relation to the fiction you have been told up until this point. After sitting in this class, you will leave more enlightened, and certainly more aware."

With this in mind, I hastened to the astonishing "facts" that were hidden in the pages of that educated text.

The title of the chapter at hand was Abraham Lincoln and the Self-Made myth. The term was certainly indicative of the central theme of Hofstadter who insisted that "the first author of the Lincoln legend and the greatest of the Lincoln dramatists was Lincoln himself."

And what a revelation it was! To think that most of what I had learned about the man up until now was a fabrication was enough. But to discover that the fable was authored by Lincoln himself was utterly astounding.

Now the revisionist begins by stating his primary objective, to undermine the credibility of the Christian dogma in American history. The legend of Lincoln isn't the only myth around, you know. There is also the folk-lore that is embraced -- by the more "ignorant" sectors of our society -- that believes America was founded by Christian men who displayed Christian morality and virtues in connection with their views of society. The unenlightened individuals in our nation don't really know the true facts when they contend that the founding fathers formed a government that had as its foundation the moral base instituted by the God of the Bible.

Thomas Jefferson, for example, noted in his autobiography, ". . .an amendment was proposed by inserting the words Jesus Christ, so that it should read , a departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the Holy Author of our religion; the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindu and infidel of every denomination."

This quotation was sent in to be published in our local newspaper in Bakersfield by a religious history hobbyist, Michael K. Miller. This was done in order to prove that, in fact, the writers of our Constitution were in no way in favor of establishing America as a Christian nation; in spite of the fact that Christianity was the predominate religion in America at the time. These assertions are made with the contention that our country is not subject to the justice of the God of the Bible. However, the real center of the liberal's agenda is the moral re-adjustments we have been making in our culture during the twentieth century.

The revisionists of today love to use Jefferson as a prime example of their belief that the Founders held to their view of the separation of church and state. Yet their assertions are no where close to the truth. Therefore, according to Religion and the Founding of the Republic, "It is no exaggeration to say that on Sundays in Washington during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and of James Madison (1809-1817) the state became the church. Within a year of his inauguration, Jefferson began attending church services in the House of Representatives. Madison followed Jefferson's example, although unlike Jefferson, who rode on horseback to church in the Capitol, Madison came in a coach and four. Worship services in the House--a practice that continued until after the Civil War--were acceptable to Jefferson because they were nondiscriminatory and voluntary. Preachers of every Protestant denomination appeared. (Catholic priests began officiating in 1826.) As early as January 1806 a female evangelist, Dorothy Ripley, delivered a camp meeting-style exhortation in the House to Jefferson, Vice President Aaron Burr, and a "crowded audience." Throughout his administration Jefferson permitted church services in executive branch buildings. The Gospel was also preached in the Supreme Court chambers.

Jefferson's actions may seem surprising because his attitude toward the relation between religion and government is usually thought to have been embodied in his recommendation that there exist "a wall of separation between church and state." In that statement, Jefferson was apparently declaring his opposition, as Madison had done in introducing the Bill of Rights, to a "national" religion. In attending church services on public property, Jefferson and Madison consciously and deliberately were offering symbolic support to religion as a prop for republican government." Neither Jefferson nor Madison represent a view of the separation of church and state that is even close to the view of our modern revisionists.

While ignoring a multitude of facts such as this, Mr. Miller continued, "Are people not moral unless they are Christian?. . .The Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades and the religious wars between Christian sects offers little evidence that 'Christian nations' are especially moral. . . .John Adams said, 'The government of the United States is not in any sense founded upon the Christian religion.' Edmund Burke said, 'The miseries derived to mankind from superstition under the name of religion and of ecclesiastical tyranny under the name of church and government have been clearly and usefully exposed.' Henry Clay said, 'All religions united with government are more or less inimical to liberty. All separated from government are compatible with liberty.' Benjamin Franklin said, 'When a religion is a good one, I conceive it will support itself, and God does not take care to support it so that its professors are obliged to call for the help of the civil power, it is a sign I apprehend, of its being a bad one.' James Madison said, 'what influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many other instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instances have they been guardians of the liberties of people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not.'. . .The uniqueness of America springs from its pluralism. Why don't we all work together to rebuild this country on moral principles we all share as Americans."


Everybody Get Together?

This on the surface seems like a fair enough statement. It is as the song in the sixties proclaimed, "Come on people now, smile on your brother. Everybody get together; try to love one another somehow."

Now it's, "Let's get together and work this thing out," the modernist contends. Anyone though who contradicts by saying that we can't is said to be unloving, narrow minded and bigoted.

The question has to be asked, "Does the certainty that these men did in fact believe that there should be no established religion (as had been the case in their mother country England) mean that they too believed that religion should be barred from all public sectors of influence? Because they saw the ills that came from a dominant church in England to which their ancestors were taxed to support regardless of their own faith mean that these same people escaped England to escape Christ? Because they wanted to limit the power of the organized church in government did it mean they desired to eliminate the authority of Christ as well? Doesn't the historical record attest they were in fact running directly to God and His defining principles? Does the fact that our founding founders sought to assure there would never be a predominant and tyrannical denomination supported by the state mean that they thought the morality as professed in the Bible should be ignored? . . .And even if our founding fathers were the same pagans the scholarly thinkers insist they are, does this mean America is not subject to the judgment of God?"

With Christianity in the picture, one cannot even propose that everyone get together into one happy religious family. Francis Schaeffer illuminated in The God Who is There, "The God who is there according to the Scriptures is the personal-infinite God. There is no other god like this God. It is ridiculous to say that all religions teach the same thing when they disagree at the fundamental point as to what God is like. The gods of the East are infinite by definition -- the definition being 'god is all that is.' This is the pan-everything-ism god. The gods of the West have tended to be personal but limited; such were the gods of the Greeks, Romans and Germans. But the God of the Bible, Old and New Testaments alike, is the infinite-personal God."

There is no similarity between the definition of the God of the Bible and the gods of every other religion. There can be no doubt that the Christian is worshipping a different God than the rest. So, how can it be that we can lump all the religions of the world into one lump-sum, when one stands out as being in complete juxtaposition to all others?

The truth of God is not to be found in synthesis, but in alienation. The God of the Bible stands away from all the rest as unique. He is divinely opposed to all the rest. Biblical Christianity by definition must be excluded from your amalgamation of religions.

Since the authors of the Constitution of the United States were Christians, then all pagan religions must have been excluded from their world view. These people were educated men. The concept of the inability of Christianity to mix it up with the world's religions (in both worship life and civic affairs) had been a part of the Christian understanding since the days of Rome.

Saint Augustine lived in a time when that civilization was collapsing. As they are today, the pagans were blaming the Christians for every calamity that befell Rome.

In his great defense of the Christian faith, The City of God, Augustine noted, "In order to arouse popular hatred against us, they pretend ignorance and strive to instill in the people's minds the common notion that the misfortunes which afflict the human race are due to the expansion of Christianity and to the eclipse of the pagan gods. . ."

Yet he observed that the Roman republic fell long before Christianity was born. Indeed, he contended that the Roman Republic was not a republic at all because it was not founded on Christianity. "Why then," he noted, "did their gods not save from disaster that republic which, long before Christ appeared in the flesh, Cicero mournfully deplores as lost?"

Augustine contended that it was paganism that was the cause of the fall of the Roman Republic. As Christians, the well-educated founders of the Constitution were privy to this information.


Bashing the Framers

Since these Christian framers of the Constitution were putting together a republic form of government intended to last (and in many ways was directly pattered after the Roman model), why would they place into the structure of government a law that would create a pagan religious environment that they were well-aware would undermine the very jurisdiction they were creating? It is absurd to think that they would intelligently commit this type of obvious suicide.

Therefore, when administering the concept of church and state, they could not have been imagining that this meant bringing all the religions of the world together under one national fold. They would have known that Christianity will not mix with all the rest -- that a house divided against itself cannot stand. The concept of the freedom of religion as it being administered today would have been preposterous in their mind, for they would have realized, as Christians themselves, that the religions of the world cannot be blended together with Christianity.

But if the liberal wants to bring all of the other religions of the world together into one fold, he has correctly defined those religions exactly what they are -- united in their opposition to the One True God.

For centuries the United States has been morally driven by the presumption that the base upon which ethics should be derived is that which is defined in the Scriptures. Now men throughout the country such as Mr. Miller are taking us back to the beginning to hear the voices of our founders that suggest that our presumptions have been wrong: that in no regard were these men interested in preserving the value system the Christian claims has dominated our culture from the beginning. "The idea that our country found its base on Christian principles is a fabrication of the uneducated," they say. The notion that we are in any manner accountable to the God of the Bible is pure fantasy.

The contention that we should return to the value system that made us strong to begin with is up to dispute. In fact, it is being contended by these modern professors of knowledge that concepts of religion in America that were embraced by our fathers were, in fact akin the stance of the modernist: that the writers of the Constitution anticipated a time when no particular religion would predominate our culture; that religious freedom is synonymous the moral anarchy that insists that there are no absolutes, that morality is nothing more that a difference of opinion.

Therefore, the revisionists conclude that it is exactly their own contemporaneous value system (which upholds that Americans should live independent from any one standard) that has made our nation solid and sound. Accepting our differences, and acknowledging that everyone has a right to live his life as he sees fit regardless of how repulsive the behavior in the eyes of God, is America's key to a successful future. The fathers of our country, in the liberal's mind, are calling us from the past to comfort us with the words, "There is no judgment awaiting us as a result of our moral behavior!"

However, the contemporary moralist is not content to leave it there. It is not enough to present these brave men who risked their lives for freedom in a modernistic light. There are some in our country who wouldn't buy the modernist line of reasoning at all. They would be too convinced with the vast entourage of Christian dominance in our culture up until this century to be persuaded by a few isolated quotations.

The revisionist has to take his argument further. He must undermine the credibility of the heroes of our past in a way to show how selfish and self-serving they were. Then he can completely annihilate the Christian premise. He can detail how corrupt and degenerate our society and its leaders have always been to assure those who have put their hope in a Christian past that their faith is misplaced.

The founders of our Constitution, according to the revisionist, were no more than wealthy, landed aristocrats and political scientists who disdained the pure democracy that would tend to give the lower classes too much power. "Nowhere in America or Europe -- not even among the great liberated thinkers of the Enlightenment-did democratic ideas appear respectable to the cultivated class." Therefore Hofstadter insisted that John Hamilton "candidly disdained the people" while quoting Gouverneur Morris, "The mob begin to think and reason. Poor reptiles!. . .They bask in the sun, and ere noon they will bite, depend upon it."

"Throughout the secret discussions at the Constitutional Convention," the modernist insists, "it was clear that this distrust of man was first and foremost a distrust of the common man and democratic rule."

Liberty, Hofstadter reasoned, was conceived not to be linked with democracy, but rather to property -- freedom for property would result in liberty for men. "To protect property is only to protect men in the exercise of their natural facilities. . . Democracy, unchecked rule by the masses, is sure to bring arbitrary redistribution of property, destroying the very essence of liberty."

Since government is based on land, "influence in government would be proportionate to property." In other words, the contention is that the founding fathers, as rich landed individuals, only sought to protect themselves and their power base when they formed the Republic. It was only later that "the mainstream of the American political conviction deviated more and more from the antidemocratic position of the Constitution makers."

Indeed, the Framers rightfully distrusted people because of the biblical contention that all men are depraved. Thus they provided checks and balances in the Constitution. But the very fact that they created a republic with democratic institutions such as the House of Representatives proves that Hofstadter had it completely wrong when he contended that the Founders had no interest in democratic ideas.

With regard to property rights they knew history and therefore were aware of the fact that, in contrast with England, France did not grant property rights to individuals. Therefore, property could be, and was, indiscriminately taken away from folks for no cause at all. As a result, in contrast to England where property rights existed, liberty and freedom could not take hold in France. However in England, the rise of democratic institutions was directly related to the fact that the property of people could not be taken away. With this power the people could, and did, influence change that weakened the power of the king in favor of the rights of people.

In addition, the Founders rightly reasoned that individuals with property were those who had a personal stake in the financial stability of government and tax rates. Thus they would vote with more fiscal responsibility than those who did not possess property. In contrast, today a large amount of America's citizenry does not have property and does not pay taxes as a result. They vote for whoever will give them the most government handouts. Thus we have the redistribution of wealth that now confiscates the property of one in order to give to someone who will not work. This cycle has left the rest of us with high taxes and the government with a debt that is catastrophic even as our rights are being systematically stripped from us. Our basic right to property is the culprit, which is exactly what the Founders sought to avoid.

"No other rights are safe where property is not safe." declared Daniel Webster.

John Adams said that "[t]he moment that idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the Laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be sacred or liberty cannot exist."

James Madison declared,"... a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possissions"

He also said, "Government is instituted to protect property of every sort. . . This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own."

The Natural Rights of the colonists are these: first, a right to life; second, to liberty; third to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can.", according to Samuel Adams.

"Nothing is ours, which another may deprive us of." --Thomas Jefferson to Maria Cosway, 1786.

It sounds like the Founders were in agreement that property rights were the foundation of liberty. And there is nothing "antidemocratic" about the acknowledgement that property rights lay at the bottom of freedom. In fact, the ownership of property is the very foundation of what makes democratic institutions work! Democracy cannot survive without property rights. And today, governmental tyranny is emerging as a result of the welfare/nanny state even as our democratic institutions become increasingly impotent while career politicians bow to the rule of their own ambitions rather than the will of the people. They legislate to the people's demise even as they stay in office by handing out every piece of pork, subsidies and give-a-ways that they can muster up. And this is all done at the expense of those who have worked their tail off for every piece of property that they have. How democratic is that? It sounds more like theft to me.
