This list is not exhaustive and some are taken from my book “40 Things to Teach Your Children Before You Die: The Simple American Truths About Life, Family & Faith.” Print em out. Put em on your fridge and discuss them daily over breakfast with your kids and help inoculate them from the Leftist lies and propaganda so prevalent in much of our culture and society today. 1. You’re not a “global citizen.” If you were born in the United States of America or are a legal U.S. citizen, you are a United States citizen not bound by any other Constitution than the United States Constitution. 2. The climate is always “changing.” It’s called weather. The reason you don’t hear about “man made global warming” anymore is that it has been thoroughly de-bunked. The major reason the earth’s temperature heats/cools is due to solar activity. During periods of increased solar activity the earth warms and vice-versa. “Climate change” initiatives are really just efforts to institute higher taxes and regulations to control the people ultimately for the purpose of establishing a global New World Order. 3. There are only 2 types of humans God created. Men and women. Your sex (or gender) is determined by your chromosomal makeup. Males have XY and females have XX. There is no such thing as a “transgendered” person. A man who puts on lipstick and a wig has become a “cross dresser” but is still a man. Women who act/dress like men are still women. Boys should always use the men’s room and girls should always use the girl’s room. 4. Our nation was not founded by secularists. The original founders, the Pilgrims and Puritans, were God fearing people whose main desire was to live in a nation where they could freely worship Jesus Christ. While many of the Framers of the Constitution were not Christians, our nation was explicitly founded on Judeo-Christian values, beliefs and principles. To the extent America returns to those founding principles and beliefs will largely determine whether we can ever become “great again.” 5. Truth is not relative. God has defined all truth and apart from His Transcendent Divinely Revealed Word, everyone does what is right in their own eyes. Humans become their own gods. Man centered (humanistic) societies that have rejected God’s Word have been the most murderous and barbaric nations in the history of the world (Nazi Germany, Communist China/Russia, etc…) 6. “Social Justice” is another term for Socialism. And Socialism is always wrong because it is based on the belief that it is ok to covet, steal, and re-distribute other people’s “stuff” for the general benefit of the “community.” 7. God has defined, established and ordained marriage. It is the exclusive union of one man and one woman and the natural human family is the first, oldest, and most important form of government God ever created. No majority of judges, legislators or voters can re-define what God Himself has defined. All other types of “marriage” are legally null and void since they violate God’s definition. 8. Courts don’t make law. Courts can issue opinions on individual cases before it, but court opinions are only binding on the individual plaintiffs and defendants in the case. Only the people directly or via their elected representatives can make, alter or amend laws, statutes or Constitutions. Any law or court opinions contrary to God’s Law is no law at all. It is legally null and void and must be ignored and rejected by all civil magistrates at every branch and level of government. 9. There is only 1 race of people. The human race. People have different skin colors and come from different parts of the world but all humans are originally descended from the Original First Family (Adam and Eve.) Efforts to introduce race (“affirmative action,” “race based preferences,” “white privilege,” etc…) are merely efforts to divide and conquer. 10. There is only one way to heaven. Through faith alone, by God’s grace alone, in Christ alone. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father in heaven but through Me.” (John 14:6) Is He your Lord and Savior?
Common Words, Phrases & Terms The Left Has Twisted & Distorted That Christians & Conservatives Should Never Use (The “Dirty Dozen”)
Proverbs 12:6, “The words of ungodly men are crafty; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.” Hosea 6:5, “…I have slain them by the words of my mouth:” Psalms 12:6, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”
In his book, “1984,” George Orwell warned that in the future words would be redefined and weaponized by the Left in their effort to establish a tyrannical dictatorship where government controlled and engineered group-think and consensus (called “newspeak” in the book) would replace individual thought and creativity. Despots and dictators have always known that those who control the meaning of words largely control the thoughts, attitudes, and behavior of society. In fact, the first sin ever committed resulted from God’s Word being twisted, distorted and manipulated when the Serpent (Satan) deceived Eve by making her question God’s clear and unambiguous command not to eat from the tree of Good and Evil. Here is a partial list of the most common words, terms and phrases that the Left has re-defined, twisted and distorted for the ultimate purpose of deceiving the masses and ultimately controlling them. Sadly, many self-professing Christians and conservatives frequently use many of these words and phrases and unwittingly perpetuate the deception the distortion of these words and phrases leads to. The purpose of this article is to list the most common words, terms and phrases as well as their real meanings in context with hopes that, in the future, Christians and conservatives use the proper words and terminology. Words, indeed, matter. May we all chose ours carefully. Here is what I refer to as the “Dirty Dozen” which is of course not an exhaustive list but the 12 I consider to be the most important to be aware of.
We agree with the District Court that the surgical-center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an “undue burden” on their constitutional right to do so.
The majority opinion was correct. But for all the wrong reasons. The Texas law wasn’t unconstitutional because of the ludicrous requirement that baby butchers be properly credentialed by hospitals. The Texas law was unconstitutional because there is no Constitutional right to murder pre-born human persons at any stage of development since Roe v Wade is not the “law of the land” and never has been and allowing any type of abortion-related “procedure” violates the inalienable right to life for all innocent human persons from conception to natural death per the explicit and imperative requirements of the 5th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution which guarantees that no state shall violate “due process” and “equal protection of the laws” for any person without exception. No state possesses the authority to alienate inalienable rights. What is so sad is that so many self-described “constitutional conservatives” swallow and perpetuate the toxic liberal lie of Judicial Supremacy (i.e., that court opinions are the “law of the land” the very instant they are issued and must be obeyed, no matter how immoral, wicked or unconstitutional, by the other two superior branches.) And if you doubt the Founders originally designed the judiciary to be the “weakest of the 3 branches” read “Federalist 78” by Alexander Hamilton. The bottom line is that, ultimately, the Governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, is the chief law enforcement officer of the state of Texas and is primarily responsible for ensuring that the Federal and Texas state Constitutions’ “equal protection” and “due process” guarantees be faithfully enforced and applied to every innocent human person in the state of Texas (no matter how tiny)…without exception! Babies are dying daily in Texas because Governor Abbott daily permits it (as do all 49 other state governors). We should expect immoral, illegal and anti-Constitutional opinions from the (majority) leftist Supreme Court. But is it too much to expect that self-professing “pro-life constitutional conservative Christians” such as Abbott actually abide by their oath and DO THEIR JOB especially when it comes to protecting and defending the most sacred right all human beings possess? The right to their own lives?
“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. …The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.” (Thomas Jefferson)
“…the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. … [T]he judiciary … has no influence over either the sword or purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL…” (Alexander Hamilton)
“..if the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal actions, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their government, into the hands of that eminent tribunal.” (Abraham Lincoln)
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States, where men were free.” —President Ronald W. Reagan
One of my greatest burdens and desires as a father is for my eight-year-old son to grow up honoring God with his life, knowing right from wrong, and acting on that knowledge. I am far more interested in his character than I am in which college he attends or his profession. I am sure that I am not alone. In fact, if you are reading these words, you too must possess that same burden and sense of obligation that I do, to pass on the same truths that have guided the best parts of your life to your children, so that they may know the truth, and that their lives will glorify God. During most of American history, when a biblical worldview prevailed, much of the information in this book was common knowledge, even among non-Christians. But we live in a day where “good has become evil and evil good,” where “everyone does what is right in his own eyes.” A time when quoting God’s Word in public can literally get you arrested for a “hate crime.” And that is precisely why I am writing this book—to arm you, the parent, with what I believe to be among the most important biblical truths that we can pass on to the next generation, the stuff that they are never going to learn in most schools, from the media, and sadly, in many churches. These are the types of things they must understand and apply if they have any hope of living a life of faith in an increasingly dark cultural and spiritual climate, the most important truths that I would share with my son if I were on my deathbed. My sincere hope and prayer is that Christian parents share this politically incorrect book with their children so that the next generation may be adequately prepared to defend biblical truth for the advancement of the Gospel and biblical truth in general—the only real antidote for what really ails America and the rest of the world.
