A young quarterback who dropped to his knee after humiliating the Chicago Bears in an unbelievable overtime win is doing more to exemplify his faith in God to our young people than a president’s dismissive Sunday golf games. The example of Tim Tebow’s mother refusing to abort him when her doctors told her to do so is in stunning contrast to Barack Obama’s actions in the Illinois State Senate when he voted against the Baby Born Alive bill. Remember when he said soon upon entering the White House that America is no longer a Christian nation? Just go to tebowing.com to see pictures of people dropping to a knee in prayer!
Another quarterback survived the Hell of nearly eight years of torture in Viet Nam’s Hanoi HIlton by his deep faith in God. When Admiral Jeremiah Denton surrendered to God after five days of horrific physical abuse, he said, “a deep feeling of peace settled into my tortured mind and pain-wracked body and the suffering left me completely!” On one Christmas Eve he tapped out on his cell wall this message to another nearby prisoner: “May the consoling peace of the Infant King unite you and your family on this Precious Night!”
Dr. Alan Keyes who ran against Barack Obama in the Illinois U.S. Senate race admonished a conference of several hundred physicians at their Colorado conference in 1997:”If the light that is in you be darkness,” in reference to the Sermon on the Mount’s “let your light shine out before men.” Dr. Keyes said, “I’ll tell you, the light in this land is sure getting as dark as it can.”
The Father of our country George Washington dropped to his knee by his faithful horse on a cold battlefield to pray while fighting for our country’s Independence. He said in his Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789, to both Houses of Congress: “In this my first official act, my fervent supplications to the Almighty Being, who rules over the universe, who presides in the council of nations. . .That His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States.”
Contrast his quote with this one from the 1922-1991 Soviet Communist Constitution: “In order to ensure to citizens freedom of conscience, the church in the U.S.S.R. is separated from the State and the school from the Church.” Now which of these two examples have brought America to increase, to greatness, or to decrease, to diminution? There always shall be a Christian America. There will not always be a godless Washington, D.C.
