A Nation Worth Fighting For

A Nation Worth Fighting For


D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES PRESENTS: TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM TODAY ON TRUTHS THAT
TRANSFORM, IN CELEBRATION OF VETERAN’S DAY, WE
SALUTE THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED IN OUR
ARMED FORCES. HOW MUCH IS THIS NATION
WORTH FIGHTING FOR? THOUGH MILLIONS HAVE
FOUGHT AND SACRIFICED FOR AMERICA, SOME ARE HARD AT
WORK PORTRAYING AMERICA AS THE WORLD’S VILLAIN. I THINK KEEPING POLITICS
OUT OF SPORTS IS PROBABLY A WISE THING. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE
SUFFER FROM IN AMERICA IS THAT WE’VE POLITICIZED
EVERYTHING. WE WILL SHOW THAT AMERICA
IS STILL A NATION WORTH FIGHTING FOR, ON TODAY’S
TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. ♪ WELCOME TO TRUTHS THAT
TRANSFORM, A PRODUCTION OF D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES, WHERE WE ARE STANDING FOR TRUTH AND
DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. THE FREEDOMS WE ENJOY
IN AMERICA DID NOT COME WITHOUT A PRICE. THEY HAVE BEEN PURCHASED
BY THE SACRIFICES OF MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR
NATION’S ARMED FORCES. AS WE CELEBRATE ANOTHER
VETERANS DAY, WE HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE
SERVED OUR COUNTRY. LATER IN THIS PROGRAM,
DR. KENNEDY WILL SHARE WHY THIS IS INDEED A NATION
WORTH FIGHTING FOR. AND WE WILL OFFER YOU AN
OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST ATTACKS ON
CHRISTIAN CONSCIENCE IN AMERICA. AND WE BEGIN, ON THIS
VETERAN’S DAY WEEKEND, WITH A LOOK AT THE GROWING
MOVEMENT TO PROTEST THE AMERICAN FLAG THAT SO MANY
HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED FOR. OUR OWN DR. JERRY
NEWCOMBE HAS MORE. FOR THE LAND OF THE FREE
AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE. THE WOMAN KNEELING HERE IS
AMERICAN WOMEN’S SOCCER STAR, MEGAN RAPINOE. BECAUSE OF AMERICA’S
FLAWS, SHE CHOOSES TO PROTEST THE SINGING OF
THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. RECENTLY A FENCER AT
THE PAN AMERICAN GAMES LIKEWISE “TOOK A KNEE” TO
THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER. FENCER RACE IMBODEN TAKING
A KNEE ON THE PODIUM DURING THE ANTHEM AFTER
WINNING GOLD IN THE TEAM FOIL EVENT ON FRIDAY. THESE PROTESTS AGAINST
THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WERE POPULARIZED A FEW YEARS
AGO BY FORMER SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
QUARTERBACK, COLIN KAEPERNICK WHO HAS NOW
BECOME THE SPOKESMAN FOR NIKE. HE HAS BECOME WEALTHY
THROUGH PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, HE SHOULD
BE GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY HARD
AND ENTERTAIN PEOPLE AND TO SHOW DISRESPECT
FOR THE NATION SEEMED INAPPROPRIATE. WELL I THINK KEEPING
POLITICS OUT OF SPORTS IS PROBABLY A WISE THING. I MEAN ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
WE SUFFER FROM IN AMERICA IS THAT WE’VE
POLITICIZED EVERYTHING. IT REALLY IS INCREDIBLE,
ESPECIALLY NOW THAT WE’VE SEEN THIS CONTROVERSY WITH
THE NBA AND A LOT OF THESE ATHLETES AND FIGURES WHO
SAY THEY’RE SO MUCH A PART OF THE- THEY TALK ABOUT
SOCIAL JUSTICE AND THINGS LIKE THAT- NOW BEING
UNWILLING TO CRITICIZE AN ACTUAL AUTHORITARIAN
REGIME, AN ACTUAL POLICE STATE. LOOK, THERE ARE SOME
TERRIBLE THINGS THAT GO ON IN COMMUNIST CHINA BECAUSE
THE LEAGUE HAS A LOT OF BUSINESS INTERESTS THERE. NIKE, THIS ORGANIZATION
HAS A LOT OF, THEY MAKE A LOT OF MONEY OFF OF THE
CHINESE MARKET, AND IT’S QUITE INCREDIBLE WE
SEE FIGURES LIKE COLIN KAEPERNICK WHO WILL KNEEL
FOR THE US NATIONAL ANTHEM, WHAT DO THEY HAVE
TO SAY ABOUT COMMUNIST CHINA? WHEN IT COMES TO THOSE
KINDS OF ISSUES, SUDDENLY THEY’RE SILENT. THEY’RE QUIET
ABOUT THESE THINGS. BASKETBALL STAR LEBRON
JAMES SUPPORTS COLIN KAEPERNICK, WHOM HE CALLS
KAP, AND KAP’S PROTEST OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. I STAND WITH KAP.
I KNEEL WITH KAP. YET LEBRON JAMES CONDEMNS
THOSE WHO HAVE EXPRESSED SOLIDARITY WITH THE HONG
KONG PROTESTERS- WHO ARE SPEAKING OUT IN THE FACE
OF CHINESE OPPRESSION. INTERESTINGLY, MANY OF THE
HONG KONG PROTESTERS HAVE WAVED AMERICAN FLAGS,
WHILE THESE HIGH PAID ATHLETES SHOW A TYPE OF
CONTEMPT FOR THAT VERY SAME FLAG. AS AN IMMIGRANT TO THIS
AMAZING COUNTRY OF OURS, I AM APPALLED, I AM
DISGUSTED, I AM INSULTED, TO WATCH THE WAY PEOPLE
ARE TREATING OUR FLAG AND OUR NATIONAL
ANTHEM RIGHT NOW. AMERICA IS BEING
TRANSFORMED BEFORE OUR VERY EYES. THE FLAG THAT ONCE FLEW ON
EVERY STREET CORNER IN THE UNITED STATES IS NOW
CONSIDERED A HATE SYMBOL ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES. ATHLETES WHO USED TO STAND
UP WITH PRIDE AT THE SINGING OF THE NATIONAL
ANTHEM ARE NOW KNEELING IN PROTEST. THE WORLD IS
TURNED UPSIDE DOWN. BEFORE I CAME TO THE
UNITED STATES, WHEN I WAS LIVING IN A BOMB SHELTER
IN LEBANON, SOMEBODY HAD GIVEN ME AN AMERICAN FLAG,
A SMALL AMERICAN FLAG THAT I KEPT UNDER MY PILLOW. AND THAT FLAG GOT ME
THROUGH MY DAYS IN THE BOMB SHELTER HOPING THAT
ONE DAY I WILL COME TO AMERICA. TODAY WE HAVE PEOPLE
COMPLAINING ABOUT THE BETSY ROSS FLAG, AND THEY
ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT OUR PATRIOTISM, DESPITE THE
FACT THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA HIMSELF HAD NO PROBLEM
HAVING THAT FLAG DRAPED BEHIND HIM. IT’S A PART OF WHO WE ARE. IT’S A PART OF
OUR HISTORY. YOU CANNOT ERASE
OUR HISTORY. EVERY NATION LIKE EVERY
HUMAN BEING, WE HAVE DONE THINGS IN OUR PAST THAT
WE ARE NOT PROUD OF. THERE ARE THINGS IN
OUR PAST THAT WERE NOT PERFECT. WHAT MAKES NATIONS GREAT IS
THEY LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO
WILL TAKE THINGS OUT OF HISTORICAL CONTEXT,
PROMOTE THEM TO SERVE THEIR PRESENT DAY
AGENDA, AND THIS WHOLE DISTORTION OF
AMERICAN HISTORY. LINCOLN ONCE SAID THAT WE
WERE NOT A PERFECT UNION, BUT WE WERE A
PERFECTIBLE UNION. WHICH MEANT THAT, HAS
AMERICA THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF ITS
HISTORY HAD STUMBLES? YES. BUT WE AS A SELF-GOVERNING
PEOPLE, BASED ON THE BIBLICAL TRUTHS AND SEEDS
THAT HAVE BEEN PLANTED IN OUR GREAT LEGAL FRAMEWORK,
WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO CORRECT THOSE WRONGS. YEAH, WE HAD SLAVERY, WE
CAN’T AVOID SAYING THAT SLAVERY WAS ONCE HERE IN
THIS COUNTRY, BUT JUST THINK, IN LESS THAN 240
YEARS, WE WENT FROM THE INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY
BEING IN PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY TO BARACK OBAMA
BEING ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. NO OTHER COUNTRY HAS
IN FACT MADE THAT MUCH PROGRESS IN THAT
SHORT A TIME. THERE ARE A LOT OF
AMERICANS, I THINK, WHO ARE UPSET AND AGITATED AT
INDIVIDUALS LIKE COLIN KAEPERNICK AND GETTING RID
OF THE BETSY ROSS FLAG, WHICH I THINK
IS RIDICULOUS. CAN THESE SAME PEOPLE BE
CRITICAL OF A TERRIBLE, AUTHORITARIAN REGIME THAT
IS COMMITTING ATROCITIES RIGHT NOW? A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE ARE
NOT, AND I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE THROUGH THAT. THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST
USING HOLLOW WHAT PEOPLE CALL VIRTUE SIGNALING. THEY’RE TAKING THESE STEPS
THAT THEY’RE PRAISED AS BEING SO BRAVE OF STANDING
UP TO AMERICA IN A FREE COUNTRY YET WHEN ACTUAL
CONSEQUENCES ARE COMING DOWN THE LINE- THEY MAY
LOSE A LOT OF MONEY, THEY MAY GET CRITICISM FROM
THEIR LEAGUE, SUDDENLY THEY’RE DEAD SILENT, AND
I THINK THAT HYPOCRISY I THINK THAT REALLY
STANDS OUT. BETSY ROSS OF PHILADELPHIA
IS CREDITED WITH BEING THE FIRST TO DESIGN THE
AMERICA FLAG, BUT TODAY SOMEHOW, THAT BETSY ROSS
FLAG IS VIEWED BY SOME AS A RACIST SYMBOL. THE IDEA THAT BETSY ROSS
IS SOMEHOW A RACIST PERSON OR SYMBOL IS
ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. DURING THE SUMMER OF 2019,
COLIN KAEPERNICK SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE BETSY ROSS
FLAG APPEARING ON SOME SNEAKERS BECAUSE, HE SAID,
SHE AND HER FLAG STOOD FOR RACISM. SO NIKE, IN A BOW TO
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, PULLED THOSE SHOES. AND I THINK THAT DECISION
BY NIKE, AGAIN, IT’S ABSURD ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU
CONSIDER NIKE IS WILLING TO DO BUSINESS WITH
CHINESE COMMUNISTS, PEOPLE LIKE THIS, WHERE YOU DO
HAVE TERRIBLE THINGS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN THAT
COUNTRY, AND YET WE’RE GOING AFTER THE BETSY ROSS
FLAG, WHICH IS A SYMBOL FOR THE UNITED STATES OF
AMERICA, FOR FREEDOM, FOR INDEPENDENCE, FOR THIS
PERSON WHO WAS AT ONE TIME VERY MUCH CELEBRATED IN
THIS COUNTRY, WE CAN’T CELEBRATE THIS PERSON? I THINK THAT ONLY
HIGHLIGHTS THE ABSURDITY OF THESE ATTACKS
ON AMERICA. UNFORTUNATELY, AMERICA,
PARTIALLY BECAUSE OF FREE SPEECH, WE’VE SEEN A
PROLIFERATION OF PROTEST. PROTEST IS IMPORTANT. IT’S PROTECTED. BUT NOW IT’S TIME
FOR MORE UNITY. START YOUR DAY WITH
NEW EVERY MORNING. THIS NEWLY REVISED AND
NEWLY PRINTED DAILY DEVOTIONAL IS ONE OF THE
MOST BELOVED AND ENDURING WORKS OF DR. D. JAMES
KENNEDY AND DR. JERRY NEWCOMBE. FIND INSPIRATION IN THE
PAGES OF NEW EVERY MORNING THROUGH HEART STIRRING
MEDITATIONS THAT ADDRESS THE ISSUES MOST CRITICAL
TO BELIEVERS TODAY TO HELP US DRAW CLOSER TO GOD,
UNDERSTAND SCRIPTURE MORE CLEARLY AND APPLY
IT TO OUR LIVES. CONTACT US TODAY TO
RECEIVE YOUR COPY OF NEW EVERY MORNING SO THAT YOU
CAN ENJOY THE BIBLICAL, SPIRITUAL NOURISHMENT
FOUND IN THIS DAILY DEVOTIONAL. HISTORICAL REVISIONISTS
ARE WORKING OVERTIME HERE IN AMERICA, AND IT’S HARD
TO KEEP PACE WITH THEIR FALSE NARRATIVE. SUDDENLY, AN AMERICA FLAG
THAT WAS PERFECTLY FINE AS PART OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S
INAUGURATION IN 2012 HAS SOMEHOW BECOME A SYMBOL OF
RACIST OPPRESSION IN 2019. THIS IS, OF COURSE,
LITTLE MORE THAN LEFTWING STORYTELLING- TRYING TO
DEMONIZE AMERICA AS A NATION NOT WORTH
PRESERVING. OVERTURNING AMERICA HAS
BEEN THE PROJECT OF THE RADICAL LEFT
FOR DECADES NOW. BUT OUR FOUNDER, DR.
D. JAMES KENNEDY KNEW BETTER. THOUGH SECULAR ELITES ARE
WORKING TO UNDERMINE IT, AMERICA REALLY IS UNIQUE-
A BEACON OF HOPE TO THE ENTIRE WORLD. HE SHARES MORE IN THIS
PORTION OF HIS MESSAGE, “A NATION WORTH
FIGHTING FOR.” IMAGINE THAT THE YEAR WAS,
SAY, 1939, AND YOU WERE OF DRAFTABLE AGE. YOUR COUNTRY WAS AT WAR. YOU MIGHT VERY WELL BE
ASKING YOURSELF THE QUESTION, “IS THIS NATION
WORTH FIGHTING FOR? IS IT WORTH MY DYING FOR?” EASY QUESTION TO ANSWER? OH, I FORGOT. I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT
YOU LIVE IN NAZI GERMANY. THE QUESTION JUST BECAME A
LITTLE HARDER TO ANSWER, I TRUST. WE MIGHT ASK OURSELF THE
QUESTION, “IS THIS COUNTRY WORTH FIGHTING FOR OR
FOR THAT MATTER, ANY? THE MORE PRECIOUS ANYTHING
IS, THE MORE VALUABLE, THE MORE A PERSON WOULD BE
WILLING TO PAY FOR IT. WELL, LET’S LOOK AND SEE
WHAT WE HAVE AND HOW VALUABLE IT IS. IF WE GO BACK 500 OR SO
YEARS TO A TIME WHEN THE OLD WORLD WAS GROWING OLD
AND OLDER BY THE YEAR, DECAY AND DESPAIR WERE
EVERYWHERE TO BE FOUND, BUT UNBEKNOWNST TO ANY OF
THEM, GOD HAD SAVED- GOD HAD RESERVED- IN THE MIDST
OF 2 GREAT OCEANS THE CONTINENT OF AMERICA FOR
THE LATTER TIMES AS THE LAST GREAT HOPE
OF MANKIND. I HAVE NOT HEARD THAT EVER
MENTIONED ABOUT ANY OTHER NATION BUT THIS ONE-
THE LAST GREAT HOPE OF MANKIND. JUST LOOK AT THE PHYSICAL
ATTRIBUTES OF WHAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US BY GOD. FROM “SEA TO SHINING
SEA” GOD HAS PLACED THIS MAGNIFICENT LAND, WHICH IS
MOST CERTAINLY OF ENORMOUS VALUE AND WORTH FIGHTING
FOR, FROM THE SNOW-CAPPED MOUNTAINS TO THE VIRTUALLY
LIMITLESS PRAIRIES NOW GOLD WITH GRAIN, FROM
THE COUNTLESS RIVERS AND THOUSANDS OF LAKES, WHICH
MAKE IT FERTILE AND GREEN. GOD HAS GIVEN TO US THIS
ABUNDANTLY PRODUCTIVE LAND, WHICH IS VIRTUALLY
CAPABLE OF FEEDING THE WHOLE WORLD. AND FROM OUR MARVELOUS
HILLS TO OUR CANYONS THAT ARE GRAND, GRASSY MEADOWS
AND BILLIONS OF TREES, MARVELOUS FORESTS BUT NO
JUNGLES MAKE THIS LAND THE ENVY OF THE WORLD. COMPARE IT; FOR EXAMPLE,
TO THE HOWLING WASTES OF THE DRY AND ARID AND
DESOLATE LOOKING LANDSCAPE IN AFGHANISTAN. YOU WOULD WONDER THAT
ANYONE WOULD BE WILLING TO GIVE THEIR LIFE FOR SUCH
AS THAT, BUT THEY ARE. CONSIDERING WHAT WE HAVE
BEEN GIVEN, HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD WE BE
WILLING TO RETURN? AND SO, HAVING RESERVED
THIS LAND IN THE MIDST OF THE OCEANS, GOD AT LAST
PREPARED A PEOPLE. THOSE VALIANT PIONEERS,
THE PILGRIMS AND THE PURITANS, CAME TO
ESTABLISH THAT PARTICULAR SORT OF LAND THAT GOD
WANTED IT TO BE- A LAND WHERE JESUS CHRIST WAS
KING AND SOVEREIGN. AS OUR FOUNDERS SAID: “WE
HAVE THIS DAY ON JULY 4, 1776 RESTORED THE
SOVEREIGN, TO WHOM BE GLORY FOREVER.” WE HAVE HAD SO MANY
INCREDIBLE BLESSINGS, THINK OF THE GREAT THINGS
THAT GOD HAS PRODUCED THROUGH THIS NATION:
WONDERFUL STATESMEN: GEORGE WASHINGTON,
HAMILTON, MADISON, ADAMS, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, WHO HAVE
BEEN, INDEED, IDEALS HELD UP BEFORE OTHER NATIONS
AROUND THE WORLD. NOT ONLY STATESMEN, BUT
GREAT INVENTORS AS WELL- PEOPLE LIKE HENRY FORD,
THOMAS EDISON, ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL, THE WRIGHT
BROTHERS, AND COUNTLESS OTHERS WHO HAVE BLESSED
THE WORLD WITH THEIR INVENTIONS THAT HAVE COME
OUT OF THIS COUNTRY. THINK OF THE MAGNIFICENT
PICTURES: BETSY ROSS SEWING THE FIRST AMERICAN
FLAG, A FLAG WHICH LATER WAS TO FLY OVER THE
SURFACE OF THE MOON BECAUSE OF AMERICA. THE PILGRIMS SAID THAT IT
WAS THEIR HOPE THAT THEY WOULD AT LEAST BE A
STEPPING-STONE TO TAKING THE GOSPEL TO ALL THE
NATIONS OF THE WORLD. DEAR FRIEND, THAT HOPE AND
PRAYER OF THEIRS HAS BEEN FULFILLED. AMERICA HAS SENT OUT A
STREAM OF THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF MISSIONARIES
AND HAVE REACHED ACTUALLY EVERY SINGLE
NATION ON EARTH. AND FURTHERMORE, WE SEE
MORE AND MORE CHRISTIANS SHARING THE GOSPEL THAN
EVER BEFORE, AND WE FIND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN
THIS COUNTRY THAT HAVE ACTUALLY COME TO A
LIFE-CHANGING, SAVING EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS
CHRIST IS GROWING DRAMATICALLY. I BELIEVE THAT CHRISTIANS
ARE GOING TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON THIS COUNTRY
THAT HASN’T BEEN SEEN IN A HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE, AND
THAT DECENCY AND GODLINESS ARE ONCE AGAIN GOING TO
BECOME NORMAL IN MUCH OF OUR LAND. I BELIEVE THAT IS GOING
TO HAPPEN AND IN THAT I REJOICE. [APPLAUSE] AND TO MY MIND, THAT MOST
DEFINITELY MAKES THIS NATION A LAND WORTH
FIGHTING FOR. BUT WE ARE CALLED IN THE
SCRIPTURES TO BE SOLDIERS OF CHRIST, TO FOLLOW
CHRIST, THE CAPTAIN IN THE WELL-FOUGHT FIGHT, TO
SERVE IN HIS ARMY. AND WE ARE TOLD THAT WE
ARE TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD, WHICH IS
THE SWORD OF GOD. BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY
SPIRIT WE ARE TO PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD,
AND WE ARE TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH. THAT KIND OF ARMY,
HOWEVER, DOES NOT KILL PEOPLE. THE ONLY STATISTICS THAT
IT WOULD HAVE WOULD NOT BE OF THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN
KILLED, BUT OF THOSE WHO WERE DEAD WHO ARE MADE
ALIVE, WHO HAVE FOUND THE JOY OF KNOWING CHRIST
PERSONALLY, OF EXPERIENCING HIS LOVE IN
THEIR HEARTS, WHO HAVE SEEN THEIR LIVES AND THEIR
HOMES AND THEIR FAMILIES TRANSFORMED BY HIS GRACE. WHAT A WONDERFUL ARMY THAT
IS, DEAR FRIEND, AND ALL OF US ARE CALLED TO BE A
PART OF IT, AND IF YOU ARE NOT, YOU CAN ENLIST TODAY. WHEN YOU RECEIVE JESUS
CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR AND LORD, YOU RECEIVE HIM AS
THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR HEART, THAT ONE THAT YOU
ARE GOING TO FOLLOW. AND YOU ARE GOING TO USE
THE POWER OF HIS WORD, THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, TO
QUICKEN THE DEAD, TO CHANGE THE HEARTS OF THOSE
WHO ARE IN LOVE WITH EVIL. THE BIBLE SAYS: GOD SAYS
THOSE THAT HATE ME LOVE DEATH, AND THEY DO. GOD ALMIGHTY WANTS YOU AND
YOU AND YOU IN HIS ARMY, THE ARMY OF CHRIST, THE
ARMY OF LIFE- THAT FOREVER ARMY WHICH IS CHANGING
AND WILL CHANGE THE WHOLE WORLD. ARE YOU A PART
OF THAT ARMY? AS DR. KENNEDY JUST
SHARED, THIS IS INDEED A NATION WORTH FIGHTING FOR. WHICH IS WHY WE ARE SO
THANKFUL FOR ALL WHO HAVE SERVED. AND YET, THERE ARE
MILITANT SECULARISTS THROUGHOUT OUR LAND WHO
ARE WORKING DAY AND NIGHT TO CUT AWAY EVERYTHING
THAT HAS MADE AMERICA WORTH FIGHTING FOR. AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE
UNITED STATES HAS BEEN A BEACON OF RELIGIOUS
FREEDOM, ENSHRINING IT INTO OUR VERY
CONSTITUTION. YET DAY AFTER DAY, WE SEE
CHRISTIANS BEING HAULED INTO COURT SIMPLY FOR
EXERCISING THEIR RELIGIOUS CONSCIENCE. THE LATEST ASSAULT ON THE
FIRST AMENDMENT IS THE SO-CALLED “DO NO HARM” ACT
WHICH HAS BEEN INTRODUCED BY SOME MEMBERS
OF CONGRESS. THIS BILL WOULD EXPLICITLY
ROLL BACK RELIGIOUS FREEDOM PROTECTIONS,
FORCING CHRISTIANS TO ACT AGAINST CONSCIENCE ON
ISSUES LIKE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, TRANSGENDERISM,
AND ABORTION-INDUCING BIRTH CONTROL. FOR INSTANCE, THEY WANT TO
FORCE THE LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR- A GROUP OF
NUNS- TO PROVIDE EMPLOYEES WITH CONTRACEPTIVE
HEALTH COVERAGE. THE SISTERS HAVE ALREADY
HAD TO FIGHT ONE SUCH CASE ALL THE WAY TO
THE SUPREME COURT. WE WANT TO PUT A STOP TO
THIS, AND WE NEED YOUR HELP. WE HAVE PREPARED A
PETITION TO YOUR 2 UNITED STATES SENATORS WHICH
WE’RE ASKING YOU TO SIGN, CALLING UP THEM TO STOP
THE SO-CALLED “DO NO HARM” BILL IN ITS TRACKS. PLEASE, CONTACT US
IMMEDIATELY TO GET YOUR PETITIONS, SIGN THEM, AND
RETURN THEM TO US SO THAT WE CAN JOIN YOUR VOICE

INSIDIOUS PROPOSAL. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: AND IF YOU ARE ABLE TO

RIGHTLY STOP AND PAY RESPECT TO THOSE WHO HAVE
SERVED IN OUR NATION’S MILITARY. THE APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US
THAT ONE OF THE GOD-GIVEN TASKS OF GOVERNMENT IS TO
BEAR THE SWORD AGAINST THE EVILDOER IN PROTECTION
OF ITS PEOPLE. IN A FALLEN WORLD, THERE
ARE ALWAYS THREATS TO PEACE AND STABILITY, AND
WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THOSE WHO HAVE PUT
THEMSELVES IN HARM’S WAY IN OUR DEFENSE. OUR GRATITUDE IS ALSO A
REMINDER OF THE HIGHEST SACRIFICE THE WORLD HAS
EVER KNOWN, WHEN THE GREATEST HERO DEFEATED
THE DEADLIEST ENEMY. JESUS CHRIST SAID,
“GREATER LOVE HAS NO ONE THAN THIS, THAT SOMEONE
LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS.” JESUS DID THAT- AND MORE. IN FACT, THE BIBLE TELLS
US HE GAVE HIS LIFE EVEN FOR HIS ENEMIES- ALL
OF US WHO HAVE SINNED. IN ROMANS CHAPTER 5 WE
READ: “FOR WHILE WE WERE STILL WEAK, AT THE RIGHT
TIME CHRIST DIED FOR THE UNGODLY. FOR ONE WILL SCARCELY DIE
FOR A RIGHTEOUS PERSON- THOUGH PERHAPS FOR A GOOD
PERSON ONE WOULD DARE EVEN TO DIE- BUT GOD SHOWS HIS
LOVE FOR US IN THAT WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS,
CHRIST DIED FOR US. SINCE, THEREFORE, WE HAVE
NOW BEEN JUSTIFIED BY HIS BLOOD, MUCH MORE SHALL WE
BE SAVED BY HIM FROM THE WRATH OF GOD.” WHAT A STUNNING AND
WORLD-CHANGING TRUTH THAT IS. YOU AND I NEED TO BE
RESCUED- RESCUED FROM OUR SIN, RESCUED FROM THE
POWER OF THE ENEMY OF OUR SOULS, AND RESCUED FROM
GOD’S JUST AND RIGHTEOUS PUNISHMENT. AND JESUS CHRIST CAME TO
SAVE US, BY INTERCEDING ON OUR BEHALF- PLACING
HIMSELF BETWEEN US AND THE WRATH OF GOD. AS WE HONOR THOSE WHO
DEFEND US FROM TEMPORAL ENEMIES HERE ON EARTH,
LET US GIVE THE GREATEST HONOR- AND INDEED THE
HIGHEST WORSHIP- TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
CRUCIFIED FOR SINNERS. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET
RECEIVED HIS FORGIVENESS, I URGE YOU TO TURN AWAY
FROM YOUR SINS AND TO RECEIVE CHRIST TODAY-
RECEIVE HIM WHO OFFERS YOU SALVATION AND
ETERNAL LIFE. AND AS YOU DO, WE HAVE A
BOOK WE WOULD LIKE TO SEND YOU AT NO COST TO YOU. IT’S DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY’S
BOOK BEGINNING AGAIN, WRITTEN TO GUIDE NEW
BELIEVERS IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST. CONTACT US TO
RECEIVE A COPY TODAY. AND MAY GOD BLESS
