Deception 80: Post America Survival Guide--Disintegration into factions in the name of diversity
This article contains comments on excerpts from, "Post-America Survival Guide." I did not do my due diligence when it was released as an interlude, my apologies to those who read through that interlude (I have deleted it). Unless otherwise noted, the bracketed comments are my own. Emphases ours.
[Important note: In Post-America Survival Guide, as far as I can see, there is absolutely no obvious mention of the great whore of Revelation 17--I must therefore remind the reader that the Bible teaches that there is a mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. If a man is not openly repudiating the whore, he is forwarding the affliction--he keeps her hidden from view and keeps the people distracted by focusing on anybody but her--whether bankers, "elitists," "globalists," "liberals," etc.--even the Mother herself will do that, as evidenced by the popes' comments on the video, "The Money Masters."]
Excerpts from "Post-America Survival Guide" (http://christlifemin.org/feature_articles/Post-America_Survival_Guide.pdf)--Our country is no longer at a crossroads, but a long way down the wrong road. It is imperative to get a grasp of our times and how we got here, before we, as God's people, can know what to do.
The Plight--Understanding Our Times
The more prosperous people become, the fewer children they produce. West Europeans stopped reproducing themselves decades ago. [Americans don't have children, either. God said Be fruitful and multiply but church people do not do this. I wanted five children, but the Lord had other plans for me.] As the population aged, it became necessary to import foreigners to care for the elderly. This, along with the massive immigration of Muslims, has changed the complexion of their society. Because Muslims and immigrants still have children, it is only a matter of time before people of European descent become the minority. Islam will triumph in Europe because of birth rates and the ballot box--not the sword.
America is also on a path to national suicide because the majority is not reproducing itself. Our birthrate has been below replacement level for decades. Coupled with this, over forty five million young lives never saw the light of day since Roe v. Wade made abortion legal.
Due to failure to secure our southern border, one in five Mexicans now resides in the United States. By the year 2050 more than 100 million Hispanics will live in America. Today's minorities will outnumber today's majority in the not too distant future. [the following bracketed comment comes from the article] [From a Kingdom standpoint, the mission field has come to us!]
In 1915 Theodore Roosevelt warned, "The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities." Without common language and dedication to uniquely American ideals, the handwriting is already on the wall. TO MAINTAIN A MULTILINGUAL AND MULTICULTURAL STATE WILL REQUIRE AN AUTHORITARIAN REGIME.
How often have we heard the well-known people say "diversity is our strength?" This politically correct statement is, of course, historical nonsense.
...The fabric of America's strength resides in our unity, not our diversity. The factors that have fortified our civilization in the past are the things that we share in common: the belief in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. People from all over the world flocked to this country for political, economic, and religious freedom. As one President of a South American country put it; "People came to South America seeking gold, but people came to North America seeking God."
Since our inception, America has been a place where individuals have been free to live without interference from potentates [popes] or an oppressive government. We were founded as a government "Of the people, by the people, and for the people." Now we are moving toward a government "Of the bureaucrats, by the bureaucrats, and for the bureaucrats." The will of the people is routinely overturned by the courts and policy makers.
What is a trillion? If you laid one dollar bills end to end, you could make a chain that stretches from earth to the moon and back again 200 times before you ran out of bills! One trillion dollars would stretch nearly from the earth to the sun. It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollars!
Our government's debt obligations now exceed fifty trillion dollars. With new liabilities being absorbed almost weekly, it will prove impossible to remain solvent.
Fiscal irresponsibility over the last decade is unparalleled in our history. Deficit spending, massive governmental expansion, more entitlements, the increasing costs of policing the world, printing worthless money, and reckless bailouts are resulting in the inevitable devaluation of the dollar.
Simply put, we cannot spend what we do not have indefinitely. The Obama administration has accelerated our economic suicide to warp speed. At some point in the "not-too-distant" future, the dollar will cease to function as the world currency. The immoral practices which produce inflation will take their toll and eventually collapse our economy.
...As Christians we must understand that our governmental leaders merely reflect the character of the citizenry they represent. Governments do not produce character, and the less character the people have, the more government it takes to restrain and maintain order. There are no political solutions to spiritual problems.
We are quickly approaching the point where the bureaucrats, big labor, and the "dependent class" will compose the majority. The tipping point will come when illegal immigrants are granted the right to vote. Once that happens, no conservative can be elected to national office in the foreseeable future [how about "ever"?].
The leadership deficit over past decades is producing catastrophic consequences [in the church and in politics and in every other sphere]. One way God judges nations is by removing principled men and statesman [ref. Isaiah 3:1-3]. Where are the national leaders who have the insight to evaluate, the guts to articulate, the platform to educate our citizens, and the will to elaborate on the issues that will determine our destiny? [not to be found]
It is not the system that determines the character of a nation. Rather it is the character of the people that determines the nature of a country. John Adams wrote, "Our Constitution was written for a religious and virtuous people; it will serve no other."
Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, wrote the following in 1787:A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, the nations always progressed through the following sequence:1. From bondage to spiritual faith
2. From spiritual faith to great courage
3. From courage to liberty
4. From liberty to abundance
5. From abundance to complacency
6, From complacency to apathy
7. From apathy to dependence
8. From dependence back into bondage
Morality [This is not a Bible word.]
I just returned from Williamsburg, Virginia where The College of William and Mary elected a transgendered individual as Homecoming Queen. The local newspaper referred to Jesse Vasold as a "gender-queer" student. Gender confusion [rather, sodomy, Romans 1:26-27] and moral degeneracy [rather, a reprobate mind, Romans 1:28] are judgments from God. When people reject God's truth He gives them over to uncleanness, vile affections, and a reprobate mind (Romans 1)...
[Meanwhile] The Ten Commandments are too controversial to display in public places. Isn't it amazing what lawyers discover and denounce as unconstitutional?...
A President who carried on sexual dalliances with an intern in the oval office and lied under oath not only got re-elected, but finished his presidency....
"Culture is religion externalized," said Henry Van Til [then America must be hyppcrite-profligate-athiest and, "do what you feel like doing."]. People groups live like they do because of what they believe. The way a populace views God has major societal implications. Culture is indeed the outer dress of a nation's creed [America is the seat of the lascivious, unclean, filthy television hollywood culture that is spread all over the world and infecting people in every nation where it goes.].
Cultural degradation is an undeniable proof of a corrupt religion...Tribalized factions are not endowed with the capacity for a democratic state... The feuding masses must be kept in check by the strong-arm tactics of a dictatorial government. [America is the world's "melting pot," (who came up with that term, and why?) sounds good, but it not good when all people come here--not wanting to amalgamate, but to have their country's tribal and religious beliefs reign under the protection of our Constitution and financing of our tax dollars.]
In our country the "Christian faith" is often little more than a soft, sensual, sloppy reflection of our society with spiritual overtones...
America's New God
Socialists and humanists deify the State [actually the men running the state] by attributing to it god-like powers. Fairness and tolerance are the esteemed virtues in a jaded society. Justice has been replaced by fairness. Achievement is punished and irresponsibility is rewarded. [Legislation like "No Child Left Behind" sounds good, but actually brings every class down to the level of the lowest achieving student. I've heard--more than once--of teachers allowing fidgety students to walk around the class while they are teaching. This is not hte mention the useless puzzles and riddles that the children are being taught--useless material to make the useless, obfuscated man.] Utopians believe that the playing field must be leveled. Cradle-to-the-grave security is a right granted by the "divine state." [who exactly is the spiritual power behind that state? It is not the bankers, bankers work for their client, a client that has her hands and agents in every region under the cloak of religion.] We are broaching the point where the majority of our citizens value security more than freedom [Without a whimper, they will let TSA take pictures of their buttocks, breasts, and secrets and priyy areas and those of their children in the name of "safety" and "security." Their fourth amendment rights that protect them from unreasonable search and seizure without probable cause and a search warrant are being taken away from them right in front of their faces].
Life without risks equals slavery. In the former Soviet Union life was devoid of risks. People had jobs, houses, and food. They did not like their jobs, houses, or food; but life in the U.S.S.R. was risk-free. Everybody was equally impoverished and enslaved by a dominating, centralized government.
"Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants," was William Penn's assessment. Government makes a poor master.
Freedom cannot be maintained apart from moral goodness. [A mass of profligates imitating tv show characters cannot make up a sound society.] Character counts. The benefits that accompany national character cannot be sustained apart from the decency of its citizens. Alexis de Tocqueville declared, "I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers and it was not there; in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world of commerce and it was not there; in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and IF AMERICA EVER CEASES TO BE GOOD, SHE WILL CEASE TO BE GREAT."...

In 1992, Strobe Talbott wrote in Time Magazine, "Within the next hundred years, nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority, and the phrase 'citizen of the world' will have assumed real meaning."
