Liberty in America has always been under attack. We are living nine decades after the Great Depression, eight decades after Pearl Harbor, five decades after the social-sexual revolution of the 1960s, three decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and two decades after the terrorist attack of September 11th. Some of these have been external attacks from outside forces intent on stealing our freedom as a country and as individuals. But today, a little over a month ago, we encountered through an inauguration an internal and institutional attack, an inside assault of our freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom to bear arms, and freedom of thought.
The greatness of America according to Victor Davis Hansen is not Equality but Freedom. If you have freedom equality normally occurs as a by-product. It is never perfect nor complete, but it is the best this world has ever seen. A constitutional-republic form of government grounded in a Judeo-Christian moral framework of Laws was responsible for freedom and equality the likes of which the world has never experienced before. Montesquieu warned that a nation will perish when the Legislative Branch is more corrupt than the Executive Branch. But what do you do when they both are equally corrupt?
As Lincoln spoke with insightful prescience in 1838, “If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of Freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
From a sociological perspective, these are grave words indeed, but from a spiritual perspective we must always remember that Jesus declared; “Therefore if the Son has made you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) Paul also reminds us that; “Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)
Never forget where true Freedom & Liberty come from.
Never forget; Christianity is not dependent upon the environment but on relationships.
