From the Mailbag … “Is America Great or What?”

Dear Pastor,

“I believe in & love America. America is still the best country in the world to live in. I love it too. And I refuse to give up on God’s ability to call out His elect and build His church. We are the most fortunate people in history.”

Are my sentiments on the right track?


Dear Rudy,

I guess it depends on what America you believe in and love.  When it comes to American many people believe and love a myth. Americans, notable exceptions notwithstanding, are not a wise people. They are sheep who know more about the box score of the recent big basketball game then they know about the gazillion dollar deficit problem. They know more about their movie stars then they know how Hollywood is corrupting their thinking and morals. Americans tend to care more about Israel than they do their own country. They don’t realize that all the big media is owned by a handful of people who are feeding them propaganda day and night. They would rather be mesmerized by a talking head then put the effort in to pick up a book that gives background, detail, and which exposes the propaganda. They support a University system by sending their children to Institutions that are committed to indoctrinating those children into an anti-reality Marxist worldview. AND those parents get the privilege of paying for their children to be indoctrinated into Cultural Marxism. They trust in shrinks who by in large are themselves, psychopaths. Americans send their little children to schools that are staffed by teachers trained in these very same University Institutions with the purpose of training the little ones to be as brain-dead as the teachers are. Americans can tell you all about Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, and Taylor Swift but they know nothing about Samuel Davies, Johnathon Edwards, or John Taylor Gatto. Americans consume SSR’s in epic amounts not knowing the long-range damage figuring that long-range damage doesn’t matter as long as they are “happy.” Then they turn around and feed their children Ritalin to make Johnny and Suzie happy not knowing they may well be killing their own children. Americans insist that their children are vaccinated not knowing what poison is in the vaccines. They get the flu shot every year not knowing or caring what’s in the flu shot. Whatever history they know they get from the all-wise “The History Channel.” The clergy they listen to on Sunday may be even more indoctrinated than they are. A feat that is by no means easily arrived at. We are indeed a people who, in the words of Neil Postman, are Amusing Ourselves to Death.

But not to worry. As long as Americans can have all the sex they want with whoever or whatever they want, they will go to their graves as stupid people happy to be stupid.

I’d like to think that I love America also but my love requires me to see how America needs to repent and return to the God of the Bible who once made America truly worthy of love. Right now America is pretty ugly and my love for America requires me to plead with her to return to the only one who can make her lovely again.

Praise God for the remnant who are red-pilled and so are despised at every turn.  Perhaps it is they who are the America you say you love?

Thanks for writing Rudy,

Pastor Bret

p.s. — Of course, I believe in God’s ability to call out His elect and build His Church. I wouldn’t be a Biblical Christian if I didn’t believe that.

p.p.s. — Regarding the bit about being the most fortunate people in history … well, certainly the 60 million children who have been tortured and murdered in their mother’s wombs probably don’t think they were part of the most fortunate people in history.
