About the Book
Black and white is a solidly supported concept in scripture. Today, many priests and ministers refuse to preach the ‘black and white’ concept, pro life and traditional marriage, for fear of offending parishioners. We should willingly accept scripture and not expect scripture to form to us. We are given free will by God to follow or deny his laws. We can turn away or follow.

In the last century we have been driven steadily towards Godless Marxism, which is undermining the fabric of our Judea-Christian society. For better, claim the agnostics and for worse claim the faithful. The agnostics believe that if God exists, he is about rules and regulations and they wish to be rid of restraints in order to feel free. To believers, God’s laws are not rules and regulations, but rather free choice; that can be followed to salvation or denied if we prefer not to be saved. Our society is divided more than it has been in our history and if we do not understand how and why, we cannot save our heritage, freedom and faith. America was once unique and successful. Today we are nearing commonality with less desirable societies around the world.

Our universities and political institutions are full of wise men and women who know best how we less capable and less educated must be managed. In their wisdom, they do not trust us to manage our own affairs. They say only government can solve the problems of the people. Many of us less educated clearly understand that government has created at least two problems for every one it tried to fix. The Federal Government has trampled on our constitutional mandate for limited federal powers and would be unrecognizable to the founding fathers. It is so large, expensive and deep in debt, that it may collapse into economic despair, causing America to fail her citizens in protection and prosperity. Our government is full of wise men, or so they think. (James 3:13-18) Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show his works by a good life in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. Wisdom of this kind does not come down from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every foul practice. But the wisdom from above is first of all pure, then peaceable, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without inconstancy or insincerity. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace.
