If one listens to the Leftwing media, and has not been born again from above, they probably believe the lies which are systematically cranked out to the American public 24/7. Think about it: A person who has not been exposed to the Bible or the Gospel of Christ, is so vulnerable to the MSM’s lies and distortions of truth. Day after day their listeners are subjected to revisionist history and God-haters as their source of current events.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:12-13).
If you have watched people being interviewed on the street, and asked questions about America – most of them (especially the young) haven’t a clue about our Nation and its origin and Founding Fathers. Their mantra is simply this: Democrats care about people and are good; and Republicans only care about the rich and are very bad. That’s it. This is spoon fed to these people from the time they are old enough to listen to the news, or even worse – attend Universities where 99% of the professors are socialist/democrat/communists, whose mission is to belittle Christian students and snatch them from their own convictions.
I am writing this piece in hopes that many will print this out and have it available when attempting to speak truth to our unsaved young people.

Brethren, there are many more quotes from our Founders which have not been placed in this article. The majority of the Founding Fathers had an abiding love for our Lord Jesus Christ. They looked to Him in prayer, knowing that they were dependent upon Him for everything in their lives and for the new government of the United States.
Our children and grandchildren are not shown the words of these men. The devil has made sure of that. It is up to us to speak truth to this generation of lost souls.
Pray for these people. Pray for the professors on University campuses across the nation. Pray for the unsuspecting Christian students who are nearly eaten alive in many of their classrooms.
Some will come out even stronger in their faith. But not all. Many will succumb to the Leftist lies and Atheistic views of professors and peers.
