Attorney General Merrick Garland has instructed the FBI to mobilize against parents expressing their opposition to mask mandates, vaccine mandates and the teaching of Critical Race Theory in public schools, citing “threats.” The memorandum, which did not cite any credible threats or acts of violence, follows the National School Board Association’s request to classify parental protests as “domestic terrorism”. The FBI will be working to turn dissent, differences of opinion related to education, into a federal crime. The perversion of the mission and the power of the United States Department of Justice cannot be overstated.
As recently as May 2021, those who expressed concerns over legislation implementing vaccine passports were labeled conspiracy theorists. And yet a mere three months later, New York City launched the first requirement for a vaccine passport. NYC now requires proof of vaccination for people who want to dine indoors and take part in other activities like gyms and theaters and for those who work there. The Biden administration followed suit with some of the most sweeping vaccine mandates affecting as many as 100 million Americans — close to two-thirds of the American workforce. The framework for a two-tier society has been set in motion.
Last weekend Tracy and I had the privilege of standing on the ground in our capital and praying for the nation. Following the advice referenced above by our first president, we joined thousands of other Christians on the steps of the Supreme Court, in front of the White House, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and the lawn of the National Mall. Current prayers were added to the well-spring that have been prayed over our country for centuries, and it was inspiring to be among so many believers partnering with God through prayer and worship for the future of our country.
Over 30 years ago, R. Arthur Mathew wrote the following in the preface to his book Born for Battle, yet it still applies today:
“My burden relates to the flood of evil that the devil is flowing into the world and at the same time the passivity of many of God’s saints as they view this state of affairs and their ignorance of the part God expects them to play in His warfare against Satan.” Christians are being dragged from their homes in Afghanistan and executed for having the Bible app on their phone and the American church is focused on self-fulfillment and personal improvement, leading many to forget that we were meant to be soldiers in a spiritual battle.
While the world is reeling from horrific scenes coming out of Afghanistan and concerned over a two-tier society being created through vaccine mandates, the Democratic House of Representatives moved forward on a massive social engineering project with a price tag of $4.5 trillion. The COVID pandemic turned Washington D.C. into a money printing machine, but this latest proposal is shocking even in D.C. standards. If just the $3.5 trillion budget passes, every American child will be burdened with $600,000 in debt over his or her lifetime. This is nothing short of generational theft.
Faith. Family. Freedom.
