Have we held the line? Should those who have died rest easy because we are holding to the values that they were willing to give their lives for?


Consider this timeline;

"in 1954 churches began to grow silent;

by 1963 the Bible and prayer were removed from public schools;

by 1965 the sexual revolution was in full force;

by 1973 the Supreme Court found a solution for all the unwanted consequences of the sexual revolution has Roe V. Wade was handed down, and

by 1980 the 10 Commandments were removed from the public square.

Since then we have seen a continued teaching of evolution. We are no longer taught that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving Creator God for a divine purpose; we are instead the accidental products of the random evolutionary process with no purpose in life except to get all we can and live for ourselves. It's no wonder that we have seen the explosion of teenage suicides and school shootings over the last generation."

America's Christian Heritage, Paul K. Blair, April 2008
