The Mind Of A Nation

by Karla Perry Our long-term societal memory has become impaired. We are restricted to the constraints of a short-term memory. The edifices of culture are thought to be humanity as usual. Our western minds cannot recall a time before liberty. We sort of know that there was a time where man was not free and where we were subjects of empires and not citizens of nations. But it is so far in the distant past that we are foggy on the details. In fact, the details are so far removed from our thought that we envision a world without...

To Be or Not to Be a Christian Nation

by Karla Perry People have been arguing for years about whether America is a Christian nation. The opponents argue that the Founders were not Christians, but Deists. Some argue that all Americans are not Christian. Others argue that America doesn’t behave like a good Christian nation, thus it is disqualified to be distinguished as a Christian nation.

Homes he saved for families were now lost to the bank. When you move one person from the equation, all that follows is forever altered onto a different course of life entirely. What...

God’s Will For The Earth

by Karla Perry Jesus said that the meek shall inherit the earth. God promised Abraham that his descendants would inherit the promised land forever. Modern theology says that the earth will be destroyed and that we who believe shall live with Jesus in heaven for eternity. When we are born again into the family of God our old man is dead and our new man is alive in Christ. When I came to Christ I did not physically die even though it is true that my old man died. I was raised with Christ a new creation. Baptism marks...
