A True American!
America Needs Voices!
Dr. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) is one of my personal heroes. Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, for over 42 years, Brother Hyles built the world's largest Sunday School, trained thousands of young people to reach a nation for God, and reached out to millions of people throughout the Chicago area with the Gospel. Not enough can be said of this man's great passion for God. Dr. Hyle's motto was “OTHERS.” Pastor Hyles died in 2001 and we sure miss him. He was our preacher. Dr. Jack Hyles is a true American!
The following quote is taken from Dr. Hyles' excellent book, Teaching On Preaching (chapter 15)...
“All patriotic Americans are alarmed when people remain seated during the playing of the National Anthem. One fellow mentioned to me that he was at a ballgame. The person next to him did not stand during the playing of the National Anthem. My friend grabbed him by the collar, jerked him up and said, 'You stand up, fellow, while our National Anthem is being played!' Whether or not this is the action all of us would have taken, it is the action that all true Americans would like to take!” —Pastor Jack Hyles
As an American citizen, I love my country. I believe that we should stand up for the national anthem. We are pledging allegiance to our nation, NOT to our government. Only a godless fool would pledge allegiance to a heathen government which legalizes abortion. Pastor Hyles loved America, but he also preached against the evils and corruption within our government. Brother Hyles, like Billy Sunday, preached uncompromisingly against all forms of evil (abortion, homosexuality, the public school system, Evolution, gun-control laws, sex-education in the public schools, etc).
I remember hearing Dr. Hyles in a sermon raise questions about the mysterious murder of Vince Foster in The White House (another one of HUNDREDS of Clinton acquaintances who died premature, untimely and mysterious deaths). Dr. Hyles was very much against gun-control laws. Why should the criminals be the only ones to own guns? It is our Second Amendment right to own firearms. Janet Reno while in office publicly stated that the government's ultimate goal is to confiscate every gun in America. Now Hillary Clinton sits in Reno's place as Secretary of State under Obama. Connect the dots. Sinful times are ahead for America.
I love my country; but I loathe what the federal government is becoming—a Communist regime. The evils which our government blatantly commit before our eyes is nothing less than treason. Yes, I love my country, but I fear my government. Satan is upon our nation. Every day we are losing more and more rights and privacy as American citizens.
I've heard quite a few Christians in my lifetime criticize those Americans who say, "I have my rights." For some strange reason, many Christians associate defending our rights with rebellion. Well, American citizens DO have rights (specifically, the Bill of Rights). I realize that we are all hell-deserving sinners, prone to rebellion against authority; however, the Bill of Rights is a legal document which outlines our GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS.
The government is chipping away little by little at our Bill of Rights... it is disappearing folks! The Patriot Acts eviscerate a large portion of our rights, including our right against unreasonable and unwarranted searches. Now government thugs can invade your home without you even knowing it, using "delayed warrants." All that needs to happen is for laws to continue changing, to where Christians who teach the Bible are considered terrorists. Think it can't happen here? This is the stuff nightmares are made out of folks. You had better wake up! It's not the guy at the ballgame that bothers me, it's the sleeping Christians in churches all across America. 2nd Chronicles 7:14 tells us to turn from our wicked ways, and that includes the sin of indifference.
The following is from my article, America-Land of Injustice...
Now think about all that you've just read and then remember the guy who got 50 years in prison for stealing $153 worth of videos. How about the mother who received life in prison for having 1/16 of an ounce of cocaine? What about Jeff Skilling at Enron? What about John Poindexter who was pardoned after being convicted of conspiracy, lying to Congress, defrauding the government, and destroying evidence in the Iran Contra scandal? They just let him go! Then they promoted him to lead the new Information Awareness Organization.
Or how about the convicted felon and HUD fraudster, Phillip Winn, who was given a presidential pardon by Bill Clinton? He only ripped-off $59,000,000,000 from the HUD program!!! The money was NEVER recovered. It's sickening! There is little justice today. What a bunch of criminals! They're all in on it—Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dick Cheney, et cetera. God sees all and will bring everything to light at the Judgment. No one is going to get away with anything!
Meanwhile, there's people rotting in prison who shouldn't be there. Can this be happening in America? A Kansas mother with a drug-addiction, who needs medical help, locked away for life because of a chemical dependency? At what point do we help these people? Then again, the CIA's drugs are EVERYWHERE! Any help that we give to people through our ministries is soon destroyed by the drugs on the street. It is no secret that the alleged War On Drugs is a big fraud.
The more taxpayer dollars that OUR government uses to fight the War On Drugs, the worse the drug-problem gets in America. The more taxpayer dollars that OUR government uses to combat the War On Illiteracy, the dumber America's kids are becoming. The more taxpayer dollars that OUR government takes from us to combat the War On Hunger, the more homeless people we see barely surviving on the streets of America. Connect the dots.
