September 3, 2023 DDF Liberty/Pass on the light of liberty

 I made a commitment to myself and God to keep posting and making a video each week for a year. I have to say it has been a huge learning curve for me and I think I am finally finding my rhythm. I like things to be short and sweet so I will be changing like breaking my longer writings into smaller chunks. Also not trying to fill in a certain amount of time with my Conversations in the Car. I seem to want to force things in a box I don’t fit in, so live and learn. I hope you all are stepping out and I keep reminding myself what is written in Psalm 119: 11-16

I have treasured Your word in my heart,
So that I may not sin against You.
Blessed are You, Lord;
Teach me Your statutes.
With my lips I have told of
All the ordinances of Your mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
I will meditate on Your precepts
And regard Your ways.
I shall delight in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.

So, let me pose a question. If you are in charge of a project and it seems to be sinking, but all you do is give lectures and excuses and very long explanations of why you are in charge or making certain decisions then what does that say about the person in charge? In my leadership classes, I learned that top down authoritative leadership eventually falls and why would any worker buy into that philosophy. People need to feel they belong and are an important integral part of any project. Even in churches, the volunteers who serve still need to know that leadership values them with not just their words but their actions. Words hold no meaning unless the actions live up to them. Jesus spoke in this way about leadership:

“But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles domineer over them, and those in high position exercise authority over them. It is not this way among you, but whoever wants to become prominent among you shall be your servant, and whoever desires to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20: 25-28).

This is why when I ran across this newspaper article I thought about how America is seeing how our government is ruling at this moment in time. If you look at this list do you see any similarity in what our society is reflecting right now?

Opinion From a Former Judge

I am a student of law whose age is 85. My first year of college was 68 years ago. One class I took was political science. A half-page of my textbook essentially outlined a few steps to overturn a democracy:

1. Divide the nation philosophically
2. Formant racial strife
3. Cause distrust of police authority
4. Swarm the nation’s borders indiscriminately and unconstitutionally
5. Engender the military strength to weaken it
6. Overburden citizens with more unfair taxation
7. Encourage civil rioting and discourage accountability for all crime
8. Control all balloting
9. Control all media

What was printed in 1954 as a possible diabolic nightmare has become an emerging reality. I hope that Americans will unite enough to pen a good finish-Go dwelling.

Written by Keith M. Alber (California)

Anyone else awake enough to see how all 9 listed are being seen today in the greatest country in the world.

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people.” Ronald Reagan

That is why I am working on running an online Biblical Citizenship class that will start in November. I will be posting my class details and how you may register for it. I am learning how important it is to teach the next generation to the timeless principles of liberty. That we breathe the destiny of our youth who will bear the responsibility to preserve freedom on their watch. They will bear the torch of freedom to continue to hand that torch to the next generation and to change the world. Let’s now go and light this nation on fire.

Prayers to you and your families. Blessings over you and them as well. May we answer the call to teach and guard the hearts, minds, and souls of our youth and our children.

Heard this song and it is perfect with its message. It is What Are We Waiting For? By for King & Country

What are we waiting for?
Why are we wasting all the time like someone's making more?
(Why are we wasting all this time?)
What are we praying for? (What are we praying for?)
What are we saving for? (Saving)
What if we could be the light that no one could ignore?
What are we waiting for?
