Welcome to SouthernOregonChristianPatriots.org. This website was created as an answer to the oft-repeated question, “Where do we go from here?” It’s an important question but many are unsure of where “here” is?
Let me explain…no, there’s too much. Let me sum up:
Globalist are attempting to bring about a one world order under communism and America, because she is free, stands in the way.
Read that again, slowly. Do you hear that whisper in your ear saying, “Conspiracy theory?” Demonic. Tell it to go to hell, in Jesus’ name. That which is provable is no longer theoretical. With this as a backdrop, recent events coalesce into a mosaic revealing the dark times in which we now live.
Before we proceed, let’s define a term. This will be necessary from time to time to ensure we’re communicating effectively. The title is a link. Please follow it and read the article.
American Populism – A Canary in the Coal Mine. From this article, “Populism is the canary in our political coal mine—a warning that individual liberty may be having its oxygen drained away. Those who are concerned about freedom should pay attention to it.” This informs us as to what took place during the 2016 and 2020 general elections and continues today. In short, it is a movement of the majority who see an attack against our system of government (and by extension our way of life) and are ready, willing and able to do whatever ought to be done about it.
Here’s another important term: Economic Nationalism. While it is still true that the greatest voting block in America is the middle class, if the globalists have their way, the middle class will be gutted and only the elite and serf classes will remain. American Populism is the warning sign. Economic Nationalism is a necessary response for those who wish to retain liberty under our Constitutional Republic.
Sadly, most of us were not taught the significance of what we have and are at risk of losing.
“Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.”– George Santayana
More specifically, we must not only know our history. We must learn and understand the founding principles upon which our Constitution rests. This is one of the primary purposes of this website.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”– Buckminster Fuller
This is what the progressive left is attempting to achieve. They are creating a new cultural model built on secular humanism (there is no God, we are gods) and pseudo-science (ideologies presented in scientific terms). Their methods include cancel-culture, censorship, the continuous propagation of false narratives by the media, government corruption and collusion with big tech, virus and climate change hysteria, the indoctrination of our children into critical race theory (CRT) and sexual perversion, etc. All designed to destroy our country from within.
Christian conservatives are responding in kind. We are rebuilding from the foundational principles derived from the very character and nature of God. Freedom, liberty, grace, true equality (by virtue of being created in the image of God). We are image bearers. Holiness (as He is holy), righteousness (covered in His righteousness), forgiveness (by His grace). This is the model given to us by God that ensures our happiness and that of our children.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”– excerpt from the Declaration of Independence
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”– Preamble to the Constitution of the United States
This old/new model is being practiced by millions of patriots who are creating alternatives to the existing models. Models that result in a reengagement in our local communities. Grass roots, they call it.
Replacing government corruption and CRT in our schools, for example, can be achieved by a return to our first love, so to speak. In this case, returning to the fundamental principles of self-governance through (local) representation. As citizens, not only do we have rights, but we also have duties and responsibilities. Self-governance through local representation is a foundational constitutional principle.
We, as a people, have lost this understanding and we must get it back if we are to retain our freedom.
Bear with me as I preach a little bit. Getting this parallel is important.
There’s some irony in the recognition that community reengagement is also where the rubber meets the road in walking out our faith. The enemy would have us isolated. The Spirit unites. And nothing unites better than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel is a message of love (Greek word: agape). Biblical love, properly understood and walked out, results in right relationships; first vertically (with God) then horizontally (with each other). There is power in right relationships.
Love causes a response. Love of God causes worship and obedience. Love of country causes adherence to law and the desire to perform the duties and responsibilities of citizenship. Catch this: We lose our love for God when the enemy is successful in causing us to believe that God is less than He has revealed Himself to be. Our worship and obedience decline proportionally. Likewise, our love of country is proportional to our knowledge of its origin, history and value.
End of sermon. Story time…
I am old. My parents’ generation (and theirs) lost an appreciation for the profound miracle that is our constitutional republic. Neither do I recall receiving any more exposure to our system of self-government than the Preamble; and that just to graduate 8th grade. Today, our kids are being taught to hate America; that the Constitution is outdated, flawed and worthy to be replaced. Behind all this is a march towards globalism. America stands in the way. Now we’ve come full circle.
Americans, under the Constitution, have liberty. Equality of rights and opportunities are inherent. Protections against Marxist philosophies are built in. Immigrant minorities have always been able to cross the culture gap and enjoy the blessings of “fitting in” as Americans; often within a single generation! We are the cultural melting pot of the world. This country is the opposite of racist; it is inclusive by design. No other nation in the world can boast of this.
The starting point? Care enough to educate yourself with the facts of our beginnings. Determine for yourself whether America’s system of liberty and self-governance is worth fighting for…
Where we go from here is clear: we must (re)introduce our current generations to our past:
- How did our country begin? Was throwing off the Crown legitimate? If so, on what grounds?
- What issues did the Founders wrestle with during the creation of the Constitution?
- What were the arguments against?
- Had constitutional republics existed prior to America? How did those turn out?
- Once the Constitution was in place, what was the result of this American experiment in self-government?
Many of the documents provided on the Read Me page answer these questions and many more. With these answers, we realize the value of what we have and what’s at stake. We realize what it’s going to take to keep it…because the Founders warned us. Our Constitution is timeless because it was built on foundational (unalienable) truths that remain true whether or not any form of government chooses to protect them. Returning to them returns us to life, liberty and the freedom to pursue happiness.
It requires that We The People re-engage.
