"When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary..."

"When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary..."

These introductory words from the Declaration of Independence are forever enshrined into the history and character of the United States of America. And our communities.

As it was "Necessary" for our Founding Fathers to declare their independence from a king who had a history of "repeated injuries and usurpations," it is becoming more and more evident that people of faith and conservatives must respond to the "repeated injuries and usurpations" of a movement defined as a secular, so-called, progressive one that seeks to destroy the very foundation of this great nation and to transform and re-make it into something very different than the America we have known and that God has blessed.

Have you read the Declaration of Independence? Or the Constitution?

You should. You should have a copy of both in your home for reference.

During this month of March we are offering a beautiful pocket size booklet which contains both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States to everyone who donates to this ministry.

We have purchased copies of this booklet from the Heritage Foundation and will send it to you as an expression of appreciation of your support in our ongoing effort to educate the public. Maybe you have a copy and would want to give it to a friend.

Everyone who
donates this month will receive the Constitution and "Declaration" booklet as a gift from Faith and Freedom Foundation.

Your additional donations last month helped us to make up over half the amount we were short during the month of January. We have a way to go, but I believe we will get back on budget this month, with your help and God's blessing.

Our budget is both modest and frugal---but very necessary to continue.

Your donations are allowing us to continue on a month-to-month basis and your prayers sustain us.

Thank you for the kind and transparent personal comment:

One person wrote: "Thank you for standing firm on Christian principles. No nation that forgets God can prosper. You guys are in my prayers and may He bless you as you contend for the faith once delivered to the saints."

Another: "Please use the $500 donation to do all you can. I am a public school teacher...I am saddened by the new 'bullying' law" and its implications in public education. "O, God help us."

And there was this note, not unlike several others:

“Dear Mr. Randall: I want to express my gratitude for your ongoing efforts to uphold the absolute truth in this relative age we live in. I must confess that over the past few years I have gotten discouraged and even thought that we should soften our stance on some of the social issues so we could work to strengthen our nation. Your timely reports have challenged me and encouraged me to stand strong in the Word of God and to not falter in our protection and proclamation of truth."

This person continued: "Thank you and God bless you as you continue your efforts. It is making a difference in my life and helping to hold the banner higher when my arms have grown weaker."

And then this: "I wish I could do more, but as a realtor, my income is basically nothing these days..."

Yes, these are very difficult times financially. Each of us can do different things at different times.

Interestingly, the last phrase of the Declaration defines two elements that always exist when people accomplish great things.

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

A firm reliance on the blessing of God and a shared mission is always part of any accomplishment.

What we cannot do alone, we can, together with God, accomplish.

I feel a profound sense of call and urgency to do what we do yet I can only proceed with your support and God's blessing.

  1. Thank you to everyone in your organization and those that stand for the sufficiency of God's Word. Our Lord did'nt say it would be easy, only that we need to pick up our cross daily and follow Him.

    "In the Christian life, disappointments will come-people who used to be lights will flicker out, and those who used to stand with us will turn away. We have to get so used to it that
    we will not even realize we are standing alone. Paul said,"...
    no one stood with me, but all forsook me... But the Lord stood
    with me and strengthened me...." (2 Tim 16-17). We must build our faith not on fading lights , but on the Light that never fails. When important individuals go away we are sad, until we
    see that they are meant to go, so that only one thing is left
    for us to do-to look into the face of God for ourselves".

    Oswald Chambers, "My Utmost for His Highest"

    Godspeed and thank you all again,
    Craig in Lacey

  2. It seems we live at a time when men in order to progress, seem to think within themselves that they themselves
    are God. To change the things that God ordained, such as marriage is without sense. To think to change what God says is right and to think they will continue to prosper and receive all his blessings is simply vain hope, vain confidence, and confussion.

    It's simply the way of destruction, the path to hell.

    So we live in a time when digression is called progress.
