Putting The Right Man In Place As President
by Pete Ketcham
The following is a brief time-line overview of the beginning and subsequent growth of our United States. The purpose of this article is to highlight where we started, our progress through the years, and where we may be headed under the present political and social events that are impacting our nation today.
WHERE IT BEGAN
Our forefathers (and mothers) started out as a dedicated group of people who believed so strongly in their bible, God, and Jesus Christ, that they left their native country of England in 1602 and moved to Holland to avoid of being dominated by the Church Of England.
They worked hard in Holland and survived with their religious freedom, but felt that there had to be more to their existence of just surviving and being assimilated into the culture of Holland.
They heard about another land across the ocean, termed “The New World” (also called the Americas), and believed that was where God wanted them to go, and so they went.
Not all of them went at one time, but a select group made the first arduous journey by a ship called the Mayflower, and arrived in 1620 at a place in this New World called Plymouth.
They formed the Plymouth Colony and were called the first Pilgrims, but tragically many of them died the first winter, yet the surviving remainder tenaciously clung to their christian faith and the Plymouth Colony miraculously began to prosper.
As the years progressed other colonists arrived from England forming additional colonies that prospered. They all relied on the guidance and blessings of God, yet failed to see the tragic sin of slavery, which started about 1690. They knew in their hearts slavery was not in God’s plan for them.
Nevertheless, the colonies grew and prospered, (despite the ongoing “French & Indian War” 1754-1763, a battle for territory between France and England) and finally came to a point (due to many adverse factors over the years with England) where they believed God would have them separate entirely from English control and become an independent nation.
During the course of a bloody Revolutionary war with England (1775-1783), God showed his favor to this new nation’s humble patriot army (led by George Washington) by numerous miracles which finally led to the victory over the greategodst army in the world at that time, and allowed the establishment of a nation called the United States of America.
The American patriots then drew up a constitution based in part on biblical principles and concepts which was adopted in 1788, and selected a divinely appointed man (George Washington ) to become the first president.
The young nation grew larger and stronger through the following years, repulsed a British attempt to conquer them (war of 1812) and moved ahead into the 19th century with confidence in God’s guidance and protection, but unfortunately continued to ignore God’s condemnation against the practice of slavery.
God finally dealt with the nation’s failure to discontinue slavery and allowed a very bloody civil war (1861-1865) to take place that killed and injured over 600,000 citizens and destroyed the southern plantations, railways, factories and other improvements where slavery prominently existed. During this national divisive struggle God had placed His leader in the presidency ( Abraham Lincoln).
After this momentous event that almost split the nation, the United states flourished and continued growing stronger and more prosper under the guidance and protection of God, and holding the christian faith as their moral guide.
The nation moved forward in history and survived the first world war (1914-1918) and on into the great economic depression (1929-1939). The nation then came to the beginning of World War Two (WW2) (1941-1945), the greatest war in the history of the world.
The United States with Divine help from God won WW2 and the nation emerged from this conflict as the greatest nation in military strength and economic war production in world history. At this point the US had reached it’s apex.
Even though there was much prayer throughout this WW2 conflict, when victory finally came the nation gave the major credit for victory to it’s armed forces and very little credit to God. It seemed it was always for the men and women who fought in the war. (who of course deserved our nation’s thankfulness), but the proper spirit of thankfulness to God did not seem to be preeminent.
LEAVING GOD’S GUIDANCE
Starting in approximately 1945 the young men and women who fought in this great conflict settled down, bought small homes, went to college, and began raising a new generation, now referred to as “The Baby Boomers”. As children this generation adopted the traditional morals and patriotism of their parents, but as they grew into adulthood in the early 1960’s many began rejecting the moral guidelines of their parents and the basic precepts of Christianity. As this rejection of Christian moral guidelines grew, many of them evolved into a counterculture segment of free love, drugs, Woodstock, and Vietnam protests.
As the years progressed, this segment of the Baby Boomer generation retained their anti-Christian culture and passed it down to their children, and their grand children which has now evolved into the present day acceptance and promotion of bizarre sexual perversion, the murder of millions of unborn children, and political deceit. In essence, these “Boomers” became the exact evil apposite of their God-fearing ancestors who founded this nation.
In the last forty years these Boomers and their offspring have acquired complete control of the national education system, the mainstream news media, the entertainment industry, and of course the Democrat political party, (which has now lost all vestige of integrity). It would now seem, that with these four cultural “heavy hitters” they will be able to set the godless moral course of this nation (as they are presently doing) well into the future, unless there is a significant national event that changes it all.
It could be possible that God may soon decide we have once again drifted so far from His guidance and protection, that a major correction is due, (similar to the one that ended slavery.) as it is now evident that we have moved past any peaceful political resolution between the God-fearing conservative citizens, and the godless liberal citizens.
It is hard to say what the future holds, but one thing seems clear as we look back in our own history, we see that God had put the right man in place as president during the two most significant crises in our history, (the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War), and perhaps we may now be seeing the same divine action taking place today.
