"If The Foundations Be Destroyed...?"

A US House member says, "It’s time for Republicans to use their strongest available weapon to combat weaponization of government---the attack on our foundations.

That would be "impeachment." And removal from office, he says.

And his is not an isolated voice.

It is written, "There is a time for everything..."

If the very foundations of our country are being destroyed, what can Christians do?

Be informed, not misled.

Whether it was the FBI going strong to investigate Trump in a Hillary Clinton-created scandal, a memo by Attorney General Merrick Garland encouraging FBI agents to target parents who spoke out at a Virginia school board meeting, or the IRS targeting of conservative groups, examples of the weaponization of government against Democratic opponents seem too many to name.

American Family News says, "In light of those numerous examples of a rogue government, impeachment is the Republicans’ way of fighting back, Rep. Mike Collins (R-Georgia) said on American Family Radio Tuesday."

Impeachment, the lawmaker said, is the best response to the Biden administration’s weaponization of Department of Justice resources. The indictment of former president Donald Trump for mishandling classified documents – when others have not been held to the same standard – is the most recent example, he said.

“It's what we said over the weekend, especially when you have a sitting president that is weaponizing not only the law enforcement but the justice system to go after a political opponent," Collins complained. "The irony of it is you're talking about a president who had documents, and now they have found these documents that belong to Biden when he was a senator."

Impeachment is the process by which Congress charges and then tries an official of the federal government for treason, bribery, or high crimes and misdemeanors. In the legal proceeding, the House of Representatives brings the charges which are heard in a Senate trial.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. She previously introduced impeachment articles against FBI director Christopher Wray. or  Matthew Graves. Graves is the federal prosecutor who she says ignored crime in the District of Columbia to focus solely on Jan. 6, 2021, when Trump supporters were charged with inciting violence at the Capitol.

In a related discussion, Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Texas) spoke to the "Washington Watch" program Monday about Trump's legal problem. He compared the Trump indictment to Hillary Clinton’s classified information on a private server that she tried to destroy. He also mentioned recent findings by House Republicans that millions of dollars in payments flowed to the Biden family through a series of shell companies.

“Nobody is alleging that any national security has been compromised. Nothing has leaked out or anything of that nature,” Fallon told show host Tony Perkins. “They're saying simply and merely the possession of it in a presidential home, after his presidency, where he had the power to declassify it, as somehow criminal and warrants up to 400 years in prison." 

"A time to start over"

Rep. Collins told host Jenna Ellis on the American Family Radio Network, "It's time to start over in the Department of Justice."

He said, “It’s time for impeachments. It’s time to bring Garland in and impeach that rascal. It’s time to get rid of FBI Director (Christopher) Wray through impeachment," he said. "We have got to start dismantling these organizations at the top and cleaning house on this stuff up here. They are destroying so much of what we know as America." 

Indeed they are.


Ecclesiastes 3:1 says: 

To everything, there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven."

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up.

Perhaps Rep. Collins is right. This may indeed be a time to "dismantle," "clean house," and "rebuild" these organizations.

The Psalmist asked, "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" (( Psalm 11:3). 

He answerers his question before he asks in verse 1: "In the Lord I put my trust; how say ye to my soul Flee as a bird to your mountain."

No question the wicked have bent their bow intending to shoot at the upright in heart.

Every Judeo-Christian value and principle is being challenged and trashed by the Left. Not only is this an affront to Christians, but an attack on the very foundations of this nation.

Our response?

Stand strong, don't flee to the mountains of silence and denial. Pierce the darkness with the light of God's presence that lives in you. Remember, greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Bold.  Be Engaged. Be Prayerful. Be Hopeful.
