True story. The winners write the history books. As a Christian that used to go to the Salvation Army branch of the Methodist church The Battle Hymn of the Republic was ALLWAYS on the songs list.

In the beauty of the Lilly's Christ was born across the sea with a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me. Jesus died to make men holy let us fight to set them free while God is marching on!
What is your point?

Hah! at least 30% of the founding fathers were openly Freemasons. During Lincolns times Republicans were the liberals. Separation of church and state was one of the fundamentals of the Constitution. Even if this nation was to abandon the Republican form of government in favor of a more democratic one that would not prevent conservatives from voting! Are you still angry because the good guys won the Civil War?
The good men didn't win the war between the states.

I agree with much of what you have said, and came to the realization more than 30 yrs ago that to be a democrat one has to be ignorant or evil or some combination.

If you judge the parties strictly on platform there is NO comparison as to whom you should vote for if you are a Christian.

If you look at individual accomplishments President Trump has greatly excelled, yet he himself continues to be of very low moral character. So we have to be very careful in elevating any individual, and should not simply dismiss foul and boorish behavior.


On your point about secession, everything in my flesh screams YES!!! That's why I know it is wrong. We are called to love and share the Gospel. To be salt and light to the World. Isolating ourselves as Christians is not what we are called to do.

So as free citizens of this great nation, and to not squander our incredible heritage, we need to vote our consciences, and align that vote as closely as we can with the Will of God.


I did not know the origins of your screen name. Probably not such a great choice IMHO. Even IF the history is somewhat altered I can't see how he would have been a good guy to emulate.
If you want to avoid secession, then you invite civil war.

Appreciate your post. I encourage you to study the history of Quantrill. There are plenty of books there. Find the ones that are of 'source material'. I give you these to begin.

1.) Three Years With Quantrill--A true story told by his scout John McCorkle

2.) The Devil Knows How To Ride---Edward E. Leslie

We certainly need to pray for our country.

But consider this. Our country was based on Christianity. The people who made up the fabric of our country were Christian. Not every person was Christian, but overall the country was Christian. It was built from a Christian world view. No matter which party was in power the Bible believing Christian was not threatened. His conservative views were not threatened. There were conservatives in the Democratic party then.

But now, the country is less and less Christian. Ten commandments are taken away from county, state, and federal courthouses where they once stood. Because the church has become impotent!!!


The atheistic liberal left has taken over the Democratic party. Abortion must be honored by them. Homosexuality must be allowed. Homosexuals must be allowed to even adopt children. The church has the power to turn this around, but their priorities are out of order.

You mentioned "to bring us back together as human beings". Are you willing to let the atheistic left have their way? For they are not willing to let you have yours. What would such a unity be based on? Jesus Christ and his finished work on Calvary!! with God, all things are possible!!

It is often said that if God doesn't judge this country, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. And you know that ain't going to happen. We may well have lived out our purpose and are a nation with judgement next in our future. If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and seek my face, I will hear from Heaven and heal their land.

How do you know some form of secession would not be God's will?

I did, but you insist on using the name of a Democrat as your screen name.
A Democrat in 1861 was nothing like democrats today. Same with Republicans. I vote Republican now but Republican was the party of Lincoln, who I don't really care for.

It's called history 101. What may be liberal at one time is conservative in another. A little history gives understanding in many things. But I am not surprised in what I run into.

What is different about Democrats today, veversus 1861?
Just as they kept men subservient to masters in 1861, so they keep men subservient to the master of government now.

They used physical force in 1861.
Now they use the power of the purse.

The divide is now too great in America for any hope of a united 'peace'. The beliefs are too opposite. They are impossible to bridge. Republican's have shown they are not only unwilling to live under any Democrat government, but that they will do all they can to go against such a government, including violence.

I came to the realization more than 30 yrs ago that to be a republican one has to be ignorant or evil or some combination.

Really so what does that say about Democrats:unsure:

It is the left that has shown they know no bounds to achieve their evil agenda that strips away individual freedoms and only wants a group think mindset.

Collectivism has been histories worst nightmare several time over.

Both sides use the power of the purse. What is that supposed to mean?
