Lincoln Was Right: We Can Only Be Defeated From Within
America would do well to remember the words spoken by Abraham Lincoln: “At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us? Never! …I answer, if it ever reaches us, it must spring up from amongst us, and it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time or die by suicide.” (Excerpt from 1838 speech given by Lincoln in a church in Springfield, IL)
Lincoln’s words are specifically à propos to an email conversation I had earlier this week. The conversation was related the fallacious construct that supposes us to be helplessness.
I have coined the assignation “segregative speech”, i.e., speech identified by hyphenations, skin color, etc. A friend shared: “By the way, if it were up to me we wouldn’t define any American by race, color, ethnicity, creed, etc., but we are stuck using these descriptives in order to address comments by politicians, bureaucrats, folks in the media, folks in entertainment, and citizens who use these descriptives on a regular basis.”
I disagree with that popular opinion because it is wrong on every quantifiable level. People have just been duped into believing otherwise.
“What goes unnoticed and unaddressed in the public square is that neo-Leninists and cultural-Marxists have been able to obscure the fact that America is comprised of Americans. They have poisoned the minds of people to “nationalism.” I am a proud nationalist, because I am singularly an American. The hyphenations have been introduced to create a veneer of shame born of ignorance.
Why should anyone be ashamed to be an American? The placing of any prefix apart from “Christian” before American undermines the solidarity and unity of We the People as Americans.
The most repulsive part of this is the damnable ignorance of the people who blather the satanic lies of neo-Leninists and cultural-Marxists by using [their] bastardized lexicon to erode unity, Americanism, and God Himself from the American perspective. As I lectured two weeks ago: “Satan has used his minions to divide America, because in so doing he [is dividing] and deconstructing the church.”
When I was growing up, people where simply Americans and there was national pride in same. Today foolish, non-thinking, ignorant people puff their chests out as they claim to be some variant species of American, e.g., African-American, Irish-American, Italian-American, ad nauseum.
It is sickening to me that people can be so dogmatically stupid. By definition alone it is impossible to [factually] recognize oneself as any of the above referenced or any of the many hyphenated assignations [based upon so-called ethnicity and godless behavior].
Even more egregious is the fact that this condemnable pattern of speech has led to the erosion of absolutes and thereby the absolutism of God, by redefining illicit behavior as a cultural “hyphenism”, e.g., homosexual-American, [transgender-male/female, transsexual-male/female], ad nauseum.
I contend, and nothing dissuades me, that it is not the fools, who have said there is no god, who are leading America astray, it is the supposedly educated and church-going people, who have embraced Satan’s deceit as part of their lexicon and by default part of their mindset, i.e., their belief system even though most will deny they fall into said grouping. In brief, people refuse to think about what is going to come out of their mouth before they speak and that is precisely what Satan disguised as the so-called “left” wants.
There is no such thing as race in reference to people. Race is a fallacious construct by the social-Darwinists created to validate the lie of evolution.
I am an unapologetic Biblicist. I factor everything through prism of scripture. If it is not found in scripture, approved by scripture, or does not conform to scripture, than it is the work of the devil.
I remind you that God’s Word makes very clear that: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12 KJV)
This is what the people who claim to be Christians have forgotten and/or overlook. Today they are the ones who are quick to abide sin out . It is Christians who are biblically illiterate and it is so-called Christian ministers who are most often preaching heresy.
The Word of God makes clear that the serpent did not say: “Hey Eve; you’re one hot potato. Whaddaya say we go have a drink, smoke some dope, and cheat on your husband.” The serpent asked the simple question: “Hath God said…?” (Genesis 3:1 KJV)
One of the things Satan tempted Jesus with was that which Christ already possessed. He tried to tempt Christ with promises power and wealth. (See: Matthew 4:8-9 KJV)
Nothing has changed today. Satan attacks with corrupted speech and through the mind.
I know Satan exists because the Word of God says so, with that I know he is a liar and a deceiver because the Word of God also tells us that. I also know that God cannot lie and with that I believe the Word of God when it says we are not wrestling against flesh and blood. I believe the Word of God when He tells us that: “The thief, I.e., Satan, cometh not but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” (John 10:10 KJV)
This brings me back to where I began. The enemy corrupts our thoughts and mindset, by first corrupting our lexicon. When sin was known by the name of its evil deed(s) the church and the family flourished. But when sinful behavior began to be referenced in polite politically correct terms, sinful behavior was no longer sinful behavior. Those who dared frown upon errant behavior were labeled as intolerant, bigoted, and prejudiced.
With that first step accomplished, dividing us by skin-color, inventing genders that are impossible for a person to actually become, and forced conformity has become the norm.
The enemy is not the cultural-Marxists and neo-Leninists as such; the enemy is Satan and his emissaries and they prevail because as I pointed out to my friend, so-called believers claim we have no choice but to accommodate the lies of the deceiver.
Additionally people are afraid they’ll be viewed as ignorant dolts if they believe what the bible says, which in and of itself is contrary to the Word of God as Christ Himself taught in Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV)
I tell you that I am not the least bit concerned how I am viewed for speaking the truth of God’s word. Woe be it to me if I stand before God, guilty of having been ashamed of His Word.
We are losing the war for the possession of our minds, thoughts and character because we do not believe the Word of God. Churchgoers may give lip service to the bible but for many that’s it.
Lincoln was right regarding the deconstruction of America from within and tragically we have all played a part in it. It is up to us to decide if we are going to stand up to the tyranny of lies and corrupted speech that is intended to destroy us as a Nation or will we participate in the segregative and divisive lexicon used to keep us apart from God and combative with one another?
