Truths That Transform – Freedom’s Holy Light


D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
PRESENTS TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. THERE IS A TERRIBLE COST
THAT COMES WITH REMOVING GOD FROM OUR PUBLIC LIFE. DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS? FIND OUT ON TODAY’S
TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM. THIS IS TRUTHS
THAT TRANSFORM. ♪ HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, AND
WELCOME TO TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM, A PRODUCTION
OF D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES, WHERE WE ARE
STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. WHEN WE CONSIDER
THE GENIUS OF THE CONSTITUTION, WE RECOGNIZE
THAT WE WERE GIVEN A GREAT GIFT BY THE
FOUNDERS OF AMERICA. THROUGH THE CONSTITUTION
AND OUR OTHER CHARTER DOCUMENTS, THEY ENSHRINED
BOTH THE SPIRIT AND THE PRACTICAL FOUNDATION OF
LIBERTY- ALL BASED UPON CLEAR BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES. AND YET, LIKE A BEACH
AFTER A STORM, THE EVIDENCE OF CORROSIVE
EROSION IS EVERYWHERE, WITH FAR-LEFT POLITICIANS
AND POWER-HUNGRY JUDGES TWISTING AND CONTORTING
THE CONSTITUTION TO SERVE THEIR OWN ENDS. ON TODAY’S PROGRAM, YOU
WILL DISCOVER WHY THE MOVE TO SECULARIZE THE NATION
IS ACTUALLY DESTROYING THE BASIS OF OUR FREEDOM. AND YOU’LL MEET AN
INSPIRING WOMAN WHO KNOWS WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE
UNDER THE HEAVY HAND OF GODLESS GOVERNMENT- AND
WHO HAS SOME WARNINGS FOR AMERICA. AND AS WE BEGIN, DR.
GEORGE GRANT IS A PASTOR, AUTHOR, AND
EDUCATOR WHO HAS CLOSELY STUDIED THE POLITICAL LEFT
AND THEIR ATTEMPTS TO INSTITUTE THEIR AGENDA OF
SEXUAL ANARCHY THROUGH THE COURT SYSTEM. HE’S WRITTEN EXTENSIVELY
ON PLANNED PARENTHOOD, THE ACLU, AND AMERICA’S
CHRISTIAN HISTORY, AND I RECENTLY HAD A CHANCE TO
SIT DOWN AND TALK WITH HIM IN NASHVILLE ABOUT THE
STATE OF OUR CONSTITUTION. GEORGE YOU’VE WRITTEN
EXTENSIVELY ON THE CONSTITUTION, SOME OF IT
FROM ITS CONCEPTUAL ROOTS AND, I DON’T KNOW,
AN INTERESTED OR A DISINTERESTED OBSERVER I
THINK TODAY WOULD SAY THE CONSTITUTION IS IN
A BIT OF A CRISIS. IS THAT YOUR VIEW,
AND IF SO, WHY? I THINK THAT THE
CONSTITUTION HAS SUFFERED DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS. I DON’T THINK IT’S ANY ONE
THING, ANY ONE CRISIS. IT’S NOT EVEN ANY ONE
PARTICULAR PHILOSOPHY OF CONSTITUTIONAL
INTERPRETATION. IT’S THAT THE CONSTITUTION
HAS BECOME, IN A SENSE, THE PUNCHING BAG FOR
EVERY IDEOLOGY AND EVERY INTERPRETATION AND BECAUSE
WE HAVE PRECEDENT BASED INTERPRETATIONS, WE’RE NOW
JUST BASICALLY THROWN FROM PILLAR TO POST BY WHATEVER
FEDERAL COURT, WHATEVER FEDERAL JUDGE HAPPENS TO
RULE ON AN ISSUE ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY
AT ANY TIME. THE FRAMEWORKS OF THE
CONSTITUTION OPERATED FROM PRINCIPLE AND MOVED FROM
PRINCIPLE TO PRECEPT. WHAT WE DO IS WE START
WITH PRECEPT, WE IGNORE THE PRINCIPLE, AND THEN WE
ARRIVE AT NEW PRINCIPLES FROM THE PRECEPTS. SO WHAT I WOULD ARGUE IS
THAT STUDENTS IN FRESHMEN CLASSES, AS UNDERGRADUATES
TAKING POLITICAL SCIENCE FOR THE FIRST TIME, OR
THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE FIRST TIME
ARE BEING SETTLED IN TO A WRONG FRAMEWORK
FROM THE START. SO BY THE TIME THEY GET
TO THE FIRST YEAR OF LAW SCHOOL, THEY’RE ALREADY
LOST NO MATTER WHAT THE LAW SCHOOL MIGHT
TEACH THEM. THAT’S A GOOD POINT. FRAMEWORK VERSUS A
PLATFORM FOR ACTIVISM IS WHAT MANY VIEW THE SUPREME
COURT AS THE VEHICLE THROUGH WHICH I CAN ENACT
CULTURAL, SOCIAL CHANGE AS OPPOSED TO THE DIFFICULT
PROCESS OF DOING THAT IN A LEGISLATIVE FRAMEWORK,
THEY WANT THE JUSTICES TO DO IT FOR THEM. THE FOUNDERS HAD THIS
VISION THAT THE SUPREME COURT WOULD BE THE GREAT
CONSERVING INFLUENCE, AMONG THE THREE BRANCHES
OF GOVERNMENT, TO REDUCE THE EFFORTS AT ACTIVISM
IN THE LEGISLATIVE OR THE EXECUTIVE BRANCHES. IT WAS INTENDED TO CHECK,
BY HOLDING FAST TO THOSE PRINCIPLES, THOSE
FOUNDATIONS. SO IT WAS NEVER INTENDED
TO MAKE LAW, CHANGE LAW, ADJUDICATE IN THE SENSE OF
ADVANCING A NEW SOCIAL OR CULTURAL AGENDA. IT WAS ALWAYS INTENDED TO
RESTRAIN, TO HOLD BACK THE REVOLUTIONARY IMPULSE. THE FRAMERS KNEW VERY WELL
THE NATURAL INCLINATIONS OF PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT
AND THEY WANTED TO FIND A WAY TO HOLD BACK
THAT IMPULSE. THAT’S WHAT THE COURTS
WERE INTENDED TO BE, OF COURSE, THEY’VE BECOME
SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT NOW. THE IDEA OF POLITICS BEING
DOWNSTREAM FROM CULTURE IS SOMETHING I’VE HEARD SAID
OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN DC, TOO OFTEN, I THINK,
AS AN EXCUSE. TODAY I HAVE A VERY GOOD
FRIEND WHO SAYS THAT IDEA NO LONGER HAS ANY MERIT
BECAUSE ALL OF CULTURE IS POLITICAL, EVERYTHING’S
BEEN OVERLY POLITICIZED, BUT YOU’VE ALSO WRITTEN
ABOUT SOME REFORMERS WHO STOOD AGAINST THE
DOWNSTREAM; IF WE WAIT FOR THE RE-CHRISTIANIZING OF
CULTURE, IT MAY NOT EVER HAPPEN WITHOUT SOME,
LIKE A WILBERFORCE, OR A FREDERICK DOUGLAS, OR
MARTIN LUTHER WHO STAND AGAINST THE TIDES
OF THE CULTURE. RIGHT, AND I WOULD NEVER
SUGGEST THAT WE SHOULD WAIT FOR THE CHURCH. WHAT I’M SUGGESTING IS
THAT EVERYTHING THAT WE DO IN WASHINGTON IS ONLY
A TEMPORARY STOP GAP MEASURE, AND AT BEST CAN
HELP CATALYZE WHAT WILL BE THE REAL CHANGE, WHICH IS
THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE GRASS ROOTS. BUT YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY
RIGHT, I THINK THAT IN A TIME WHEN WE LOOK ACROSS
THE GREAT HEROES OF THE LAST GENERATION, NOW
PASSING TO THEIR ETERNAL REWARD IN HEAVEN; R.C.
SPROUL, BILLY GRAHAM, D. JAMES KENNEDY. WITH THE PASSING OF THESE
MEN, WE OUGHT TO MAKE A FERVENT CRY TO THE LORD,
LORD RAISE UP THE NEXT WILBERFORCE, RAISE UP THE
NEXT CHAMPION OF FAITH, RAISE UP THE NEXT DR.
KENNEDY, AND DO IT QUICKLY LORD. THE LEFTIST VISION,
FLOWING FROM KARL MARX AND HIS ILK, REQUIRES SOCIAL
ENGINEERING THROUGH THE HEAVY HAND OF THE STATE. IT IS SIMPLY NOT
COMPATIBLE WITH FREEDOM AND LIMITED GOVERNMENT. INSTEAD, IT MUST FORCE
PEOPLE INTO ITS MOLD, SOMETIMES EVEN KILLING
TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, IN ORDER TO CREATE
THE ELUSIVE “UTOPIA.” TRUE LIBERTY, BY CONTRAST,
IS THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF CHRISTIANITY. AND IT’S A GIFT WE ARE
QUICKLY LOSING, AS DR. D. JAMES KENNEDY
EXPLAINS IN THIS PORTION OF HIS MESSAGE,
“FREEDOM’S HOLY LIGHT.” THE “NEW COMMUNIST MAN”
WAS TO BE A NEW CREATION ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. HE WAS TO BE NOBLE AND
SELFLESS, TO BE CONCERNED FOR THE WELL-BEING
OF OTHERS. HE WAS TO TOWER ABOVE THE
REST OF PUNY MANKIND. WELL, HE SAID, THEY WERE
CORRECT- AT LEAST IN PART. THEY HAVE GIVEN TO THE
WORLD A NEW MAN, BUT THAT NEW MAN WHICH HAS BEEN
CREATED BY 70 YEARS OF ATHEISM AND REPRESSION
IS A MONSTER WHO HAS SYSTEMATICALLY HAD CUT OUT
OF HIS BEING HIS HEART AND HIS CONSCIENCE, ALL SENSE
OF MORALS AND ETHICS, AND HAS BEEN REDUCED TO
NOTHING MORE THAN A TIGER IN THE JUNGLE, WITH NO
COMPASSION OR COMPUNCTION- PEOPLE WHO ARE CAPABLE
OF DOING TO OTHER HUMAN BEINGS THINGS THAT YOU
COULD NOT EVEN DREAM OF IN YOUR WORST NIGHTMARES. YOU SEE, WHAT MARX AND
LENIN FORGOT, IS THAT ONLY THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAN
MAKE PEOPLE BETTER. IT IS ONLY WHERE THE
SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS THAT THERE IS LIBERTY AND THAT
THERE IS THE POWER TO EXERCISE THAT LIBERTY FOR
THE GOOD OF OTHERS AND FOR GODLINESS. THIS SAME WEEK I TALKED
TO ANOTHER MAN FROM AN EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRY
WHO TOLD ME THAT ONE OF THE BUREAUCRATS OF THE
GOVERNMENT CAME AND SAID, “WE KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A
WAY, A METHOD OF MAKING PEOPLE GOOD. WE WANT YOU TO USE IT.” THEY CAME AND SAID THIS TO
A CHRISTIAN, BECAUSE YOU SEE, THEY DON’T HAVE
ANY IDEA HOW TO DO IT. THE COMMUNIST METHOD HAS
ABYSMALLY FAILED, AND THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO. YOU CHRISTIANS HAVE A WAY
OF MAKING PEOPLE GOOD. WHATEVER IT IS, WHATEVER
IT INVOLVES, EVEN IF IT IS GOD AND RELIGION, DO IT,
BECAUSE WHAT WE HAVE IS MORAL CHAOS AND ANARCHY.” WHEN PEOPLE ARE OUTSIDE OF
CHRIST, THEY ARE EITHER GOING TO HAVE TYRANNY OR
THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE ANARCHY. BUT RIGHT HERE IN OUR
OWN COUNTRY WE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING IN THEIR
FOOTSTEPS AND WE, TOO, HAVE MADE THE SAME
FATAL BLUNDER. WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT IT
IS ONLY WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS THAT THERE
IS REAL LIBERTY AND A LIBERTY WHICH IS NOT
DEGENERATING INTO LICENSE AND ALL MANNER OF
IMMORALITY AND CRUELTY. AND SO, IN THIS COUNTRY A
PER BLIND SUPREME COURT OVER THE PAST 20-25 YEARS
HAS TAKEN FROM OUR YOUNG PEOPLE THE BIBLE, PRAYER,
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, AND NOW THE CREATOR. AND NOW WE WONDER AND
WE HEAR TELEVISION COMMENTATORS AND NEWSPAPER
COLUMNISTS WONDERING WHAT IT IS THAT HAS CAUSED THIS
DRAMATIC RISE IN CRIME AND EVERY SORT OF EVIL
IN OUR COUNTRY. THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN WHAT
BEN FRANKLIN KNEW AND THAT IS, AS HE SAID: ONLY
A VIRTUOUS PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF FREEDOM. AS NATIONS BECOME CORRUPT
AND VICIOUS, THEY HAVE NEED OF MASTERS.” WE HAVE NO GOVERNMENT,”
SAID ADAMS, “CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH AN
IRRELIGIOUS PEOPLE.” DID YOU GET THAT? “WE HAVE NO GOVERNMENT
CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH AN IRRELIGIOUS PEOPLE.” DO AWAY WITH RELIGION AND
YOU DO AWAY WITH AMERICA. IT IS ONLY THE RELIGION OF
CHRIST, WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS, THAT
PEOPLE CAN BE FREE AND BE GOOD AT THE SAME TIME. “THIS IS A CHRISTIAN
NATION,” SAID A SUPREME COURT IN A MORE
ENLIGHTENED TIME, WHEN THE VEIL WAS NOT
OVER THEIR MINDS. IT WAS KNOWN TO BE SO
FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. ONE OF THE MOST
INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY AT THE TIME OF
OUR CONSTITUTION WAS NOAH WEBSTER, WHO GAVE US THE
FIRST AMERICAN DICTIONARY, AND SAID: THE MORAL
PRINCIPLES AND PRECEPTS CONTAINED IN THE
SCRIPTURES OUGHT TO FORM THE BASIS OF ALL OUR CIVIL
CONSTITUTIONS AND LAWS. ALL THE MISERIES AND EVILS
WHICH MEN SUFFER FROM VICE, CRIME, AMBITION,
INJUSTICE, OPPRESSION, SLAVERY, AND WAR, PROCEED
FROM THEIR DESPISING OR NEGLECTING THE PRECEPTS
CONTAINED IN THE BIBLE. HOW FAR WE HAVE FALLEN. HOW BLIND HAVE BECOME THE
LEADERS OF THE BLIND IN THIS NATION OF OURS. “THE GREATEST GENIUS OF
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION,” SAID JOHN QUINCY ADAMS,
“WAS THAT IT UNITED IN ONE INDISSOLUBLE BOND THE
PRINCIPLES OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT AND
THE PRINCIPLES OF CHRISTIANITY.” AND YET TODAY MOST
PEOPLE HAVE LITTLE OR NO UNDERSTANDING OF THIS. IT IS ONLY A PEOPLE WHO
ARE COMMITTED TO GOD, WHO ARE CAPABLE OF BEING
FREE, AND WHEREVER THAT COMMITMENT DIMINISHES OR
IS DESTROYED, THEN THAT LIBERTY WILL INEVITABLY
TURN INTO LICENSE, AND THAT LICENSE INTO ANARCHY
AND CHAOS, AND THAT CHAOS WILL LEAD INEVITABLY TO
TYRANNY AND WE SHALL HAVE OUR MASTER. HEARTS SET FREE- THAT
IS WHAT IS NEEDED. FREE BECAUSE OF A
FAITH AND LOVE TO GOD. AS DR. KENNEDY JUST
SHARED, KARL MARX AND FRIEDRICH ENGELS ATTEMPTED
TO CREATE THE PERFECT SOCIETY WITH PERFECT
PEOPLE BUT THROUGH A COERCIVE STATE. THEY FAILED MISERABLY, BUT
NOT BEFORE 100 MILLION PEOPLE DIED IN COMMUNIST
COUNTRIES IN THE 20TH CENTURY ALONE. YOU’RE ABOUT TO MEET
SOMEONE WHO SURVIVED ONE OF THOSE OPPRESSIVE
REGIMES, DESPITE A DICTATOR’S ORDER
TO HAVE HER KILLED! AND SHE SAYS WE SHOULD
LEARN FROM HER EXPERIENCES IN ROMANIA. OUR OWN JOHN
RABE HAS MORE. I WAS BORN IN COMMUNIST
ROMANIA DURING THE DICTATORSHIP OF
NICOLAE CEAUSESCU. I WAS BORN IN A COUNTRY
THAT I CALL, A LAND OF LIES IN A PRISON LAND,
BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK THE
TRUTH, AND PEOPLE NEVER HAD FREEDOM TO TRAVEL
OUTSIDE, OR THE FREEDOM TO EXPRESS THEIR OPINION
ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT, OR ANY KIND OF OPINION. AND AS A CHILD
I WAS TERRIFIED. I REALIZED THAT THE
GOVERNMENT WILL NOT PROTECT ME AND NOT
EVEN MY PARENTS. VIRGINIA PRODAN GREW UP
UNDER HORRIBLE REPRESSION IN ROMANIA WHERE THE
COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT OUTLAWED THE BIBLE,
DEMOLISHED CHURCHES AND PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS. IN FACT, THE DICTATOR
DECLARED HIMSELF GOD, AND REQUIRED OR EXPECTED EACH
ONE OF THE ROMANIANS TO WORSHIP HIM ALONE, AND THE
ONES WHO DID NOT WORSHIP, THEY WERE JAILED, OR
KILLED, OR SIMPLY DISAPPEAR. AS A CHRISTIAN ATTORNEY
SHE TOOK ON RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION CASES. EVEN THOUGH SHE STANDS
UNDER FIVE FEET TALL, SHE POSED A GREAT THREAT TO
THE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT WHICH MADE HER A TARGET OF
ROMANIA’S SECRET POLICE. THEY ARRESTED ME DAILY. THEY INTERROGATED. THEY BEATEN ME AND SECRET
POLICE, I WAS MANY TIME FULL OF BLOOD, AND I LEARN
WHAT YOU READ IN THE BIBLE; AND FULL OF PAIN
I WOULD LOOK STRAIGHT TO THEM AND I’LL SAY, I DON’T
LIKE WHAT YOU’RE DOING, BUT I KNOW GOD LOVES YOU
AND I CHOOSE TO LOVE YOU. AND I KNEW THAT I WAS
THERE, NOT ONLY FOR ME TO LET CHRIST SHINE IN ME,
BUT FOR MY ENEMIES TO SEE THAT CHRIST LOVES THEM,
AND I KNEW THAT GOD CAN WIN THEM FOR HIS GLORY. UNABLE TO INTIMIDATE HER
INTO SILENCE, DICTATOR NICOLAE CEAUSESCU
PERSONALLY ORDERED THE ASSASSINATION OF
VIRGINIA PRODAN. THE ASSASSIN ARRIVED AT
HER OFFICE AS SOON AS HER ASSISTANT LEFT
WHEN SHE WAS ALONE. HE STARTED TO SCREAM AND
SAY, YOU CANNOT LISTEN WE GAVE YOU ENOUGH WARNINGS,
I’M HERE TO KILL YOU, AND HE PULLED THE GUN, AND HE
POINTED TO MY FACE, AND I FROZE THERE. I WAS ABLE TO SEE MY
LIFE IN MY FACE FOR FEW SECONDS. I THOUGHT ABOUT MY KIDS, I
HEARD MY HEART IN MY EARS, AND I LOOKED STRAIGHT AT
HIM AND I REALIZED HE’S A HUMAN BEING, GOD’S
CREATION, AND HE’S IN NEED OF FREEDOM AND TRUTH, MORE
THAN I’M IN NEED OF LIFE, OR TO SURVIVE. SO I STARTED TO
SHARE THE GOSPEL. I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT IN
ROMANIA, BECAUSE IT WAS RISKY FOR US TO HAVE A
BIBLE, ANYTIME WE HAD THE BIBLE WE MEMORIZE
BIBLE VERSES. SO I KNEW TO MEMORIZE
BIBLE VERSES TO TELL HIM, TO RECITE TO
HIM THE GOSPEL. AND AS I RECITED THE
GOSPEL TO HIM, I NOTICED THAT HIS DEMEANOR BECAME
SOFTER, HIS SHOULDERS RELAXED, AND HE PUT THE
GUN ON THE TABLE, AND HE NODDED SEVERAL TIMES TO
ME, HE STILL LOOK STRAIGHT TO ME, LIKE SEARCHING ME,
AND I LOOK STRAIGHT INTO HIS EYES, ALMOST SEEING
A CHANGE COMING, AND IT CAME. HE ACCEPTED CHRIST RIGHT
THERE IN FRONT OF ME, AND HE LEFT MY LAW OFFICE AS A
FREE MAN AND AS A BROTHER IN CHRIST. IN FACT, A CHAPTER IN HER
BOOK, SAVING MY ASSASSIN, IS WRITTEN BY THE MAN SHE
LED TO JESUS CHRIST THAT NIGHT. I DISCOVER LATER ON THAT
PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN CONTACTED OUR DICTATOR TO
FIND ABOUT MY WHEREABOUTS AND HE PROMISED THE
DICTATOR TO GIVE HIM A 6 MONTHS OR A YEAR EXTENSION
TO MOST FAVOR NATION STATUS WITH ONE CONDITION,
TO LET ME AND MY FAMILY COME TO THE UNITED STATES. AND I WANT TO SAY IT’S
NOTHING ABOUT ME. IT’S ABOUT CHRIST IN ME. TODAY, VIRGINIA PRODAN WHO
EXPERIENCED THE EXTREMES OF WHAT CHRISTIAN
PERSECUTION CAN LEAD TO, IS AN ATTORNEY FIGHTING
FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN AMERICA. MANY TIMES I FEEL LIKE
I AM SAYING TO AMERICAN PEOPLE AND I WANT TO
SCREAM AND SAY YOU GO THE WRONG WAY. YOU GO THE WRONG WAY,
TURN BACK, TURN BACK. AMERICA IS AT THE
CROSSROAD, WE AS CHRISTIANS IF WE DON’T
SPEAK UP, IF WE DON’T LIVE OUR LIVES AS CHRIST ASKED
US TO DO, WE ARE GONNA LOSE FREEDOM IN AMERICA. VIRGINIA PRODAN NOW WORKS
AS AN ATTORNEY IN THE US DEFENDING RELIGIOUS
FREEDOM, BECAUSE SHE HAS SEEN THE DANGER OF A
POWERFUL, UNFETTERED CENTRAL STATE. AND SHE’S EXPERIENCED THE
TRANSFORMING, FREEING POWER OF JESUS CHRIST. UNFORTUNATELY, SHE HAS
PLENTY OF WORK TO DO IN AMERICA, AS WE SEE OUR
FIRST AMENDMENT LIBERTIES BEING ERODED OR EVEN
ELIMINATED BY THE COURTS INTENT ON REWRITING THE
CONSTITUTION IN THE IMAGE OF THE FAR LEFT. BUT WHAT WOULD AMERICA
LOOK LIKE IF SHE RETURNED TO HER CONSTITUTIONAL
ROOTS? WELL, WE HAVE AN
EXTRAORDINARY NEW RESOURCE THAT SHOWS US, AND HERE’S
MY VERY DEAR FRIEND JENNIFER KENNEDY CASSIDY
TO TELL US MORE. JENNIFER WELCOME. THANK YOU, FRANK. THAT RESOURCE IS THE
NEW BOOK FROM VETERAN JOURNALIST ROBERT
KNIGHT CALLED, A STRONG CONSTITUTION: WHAT WOULD
AMERICA LOOK LIKE IF WE FOLLOWED THE LAW? IN RECENT DECADES, THE
CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN TURNED ON ITS HEAD. IT EXPRESSLY GUARANTEES US
FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREEDOM OF RELIGION, AND FREEDOM
FROM GOVERNMENT INTRUSION. AND YET, WE SEE
CONSERVATIVE STUDENTS BEING PUNISHED UNDER
DRACONIAN SPEECH CODES ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES,
CHRISTIAN BAKERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS BEING HAULED
INTO COURT FOR EXERCISING THEIR CHRISTIAN
CONSCIENCES AGAINST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, AND THE
IRS TARGETING CHRISTIAN AND CONSERVATIVE GROUPS
BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS. IT SIMPLY MUST STOP- OUR
HARD-WON FREEDOMS ARE AT STAKE. IN THE BOOK A STRONG
CONSTITUTION, ROBERT KNIGHT SHOWS US HOW OUR
CHIEF GOVERNING DOCUMENT HAS BEEN TWISTED ALMOST
BEYOND RECOGNITION, AND HE PROVIDES A ROAD MAP FOR
RETURNING US TO OUR CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS. WE WILL SEND YOU THIS
VITAL NEW BOOK AS OUR THANKS FOR YOUR GENEROUS
DONATION TO THE ONGOING WORK OF THIS MINISTRY. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: AND IF YOU ARE ABLE TO
GIVE A GENEROUS DONATION OF $40 OR MORE, WE WILL
SEND YOU THE BOOK A STRONG CONSTITUTION, PLUS MY
FATHER’S DVD MESSAGE, THE BIBLE AND THE
CONSTITUTION. NOBODY WAS MORE PASSIONATE
ABOUT PROCLAIMING AMERICA’S CHRISTIAN
HISTORY AND HOW IT GAVE BIRTH TO OUR FORM OF
GOVERNMENT THAN MY DAD. AND THIS CLASSIC MESSAGE
WAS PERHAPS HIS CLEAREST, MOST INFLUENTIAL MESSAGE
ON THAT CRUCIAL TOPIC. AS YOU DONATE, YOU’LL ALSO
BE HELPING US TO TRAIN AND EQUIP A NEW GENERATION
OF LEADERS WHO LOVE AND UNDERSTAND THE
CONSTITUTION, AND HAVE THE PRACTICAL TOOLS TO MAKE A
DIFFERENCE IN THE HALLS OF POWER, THROUGH OUR D. JAMES
KENNEDY CENTER FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP. SO PLEASE, CONTACT US
RIGHT AWAY WITH A GENEROUS DONATION TO THE ONGOING
WORK OF THIS MINISTRY. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: ONE OF THE GREATEST
BLESSINGS OF AMERICA IS FREEDOM- FREEDOM OF
SPEECH, FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, AND
FREEDOM OF RELIGION. IN RECENT YEARS HOWEVER,
ALL OF THOSE LIBERTIES HAVE BEEN UNDER ATTACK BY
THE FAR LEFT, WHO HAVE INSTITUTED THEIR AGENDA
THROUGH THE COURTS AND OTHER GOVERNMENT ENTITIES. THEY HAVE BEEN AIDED IN
THAT ENTERPRISE BY THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW
CENTER, A FAR-LEFT ADVOCACY GROUP THAT
PRETENDS TO BE A NEUTRAL CLEARING HOUSE FOR
INFORMATION ON HATE GROUPS. WE RECENTLY SUED THE
SPLC FOR THEIR FALSE AND DEFAMATORY LABELING OF
D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES AS A “HATE GROUP”- A
SCURRILOUS CLAIM THAT IS DEMONSTRABLY FALSE
BY ANY MEASURE. THE SPLC HAS LONG MADE
A PRACTICE OF TAGGING MAINSTREAM EVANGELICAL
GROUPS AS HATERS SIMPLY FOR HOLDING TO BIBLICAL
POSITIONS ON MARRIAGE AND HUMAN SEXUALITY. BUT AT LONG LAST, IT
APPEARS THAT THE SPLC’S FRACTURED FAÇADE
IS COMING APART. RECENTLY THE SECULAR
COMMENTARY PUBLICATION, THE WEEK, NOTED WHAT IT
CALLED “THE SAD HYSTERIA OF THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW
CENTER,” AND THEY SAID, WE CHRISTIANS ARE
INSTRUCTED BY THE LORD TO BE AS INNOCENT AS DOVES-
BUT ALSO TO BE AS WISE AS SERPENTS. IN A NATION WHERE WE STILL
RETAIN SOME FREEDOM TO SPEAK AND INFLUENCE OUR
OWN GOVERNMENT, IT HAS BEEN VITAL FOR CHRISTIANS
TO STAND UP AND REFUTE FALSE ALLEGATIONS. AND WITH YOUR HELP, WE
ARE INDEED OPENING EYES. WHILE THE SOUTHERN POVERTY
LAW CENTER PERSISTS IN ITS DISHONEST AND SLANDEROUS
CHARGES OF “HATE” AND “FASCISM” AGAINST ALL WHO
DISAGREE WITH THEM, WE MUST CONTINUE TO LOVINGLY
AND FIRMLY SHARE THE TRUTH OF JESUS CHRIST- BECAUSE
FREEDOM THAT REMAINS UNEXERCISED GROWS WEAK
TO THE POINT OF ATROPHY. D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
IS STANDING FOR TRUTH AND DEFENDING YOUR FREEDOM. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR
THIS EDITION OF TRUTHS THAT TRANSFORM, AND HAPPY
MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL OF YOU MOMS OUT THERE. WE WILL SEE YOU NEXT TIME. NEXT WEEK ON TRUTHS
THAT TRANSFORM. “GOVERNMENT IS A DANGEROUS
SERVANT,” SAID WASHINGTON, “AND A FEARFUL MASTER.” WASHINGTON HAD THE POWER
OF A NATION AND HE’S GOING TO STEP DOWN? AND THE WORLD HELD ITS
BREATH, THEY COULDN’T BELIEVE HE’S GONNA
GO THROUGH WITH IT. THAT’S NEXT WEEK. TODAY’S PROGRAM IS
AVAILABLE ON DVD FOR YOUR GIFT TO THIS MINISTRY
OF ANY AMOUNT. PLEASE CALL, WRITE, OR LOG
ON TO OUR WEBSITE TODAY. THIS HAS BEEN A
PRODUCTION OF D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES
