Happy New Year! Can you believe we are only a few short years away from the end of a millennial period and the beginning of a new one?
America's Founders also knew that this period of history would be magnificent, even fulfilling ancient prophecy. They knew their role was to be master servants to assist God in establishing a new order of freedom, prosperity, and peace.
However, as Dr. Skousen has reminded us, the Founding Fathers anticipated that future generations might face the terrible tragedy of departing from the brilliant light of Constitutional government.
They warned us, as though prophetically, to avoid the pitfalls of democratic socialism, police states, political parties, a runaway judiciary, destruction of states's rights, a dishonest monetary system, and, most destructive of all, the loss of morality and virtue among the people.
As destructive as these philosophies of men are and as much suffering and cataclysmic catastrophes that await a nation which embraces these ideas, there is a brilliant light ahead for America. The Founders, supported by readings in the Holy Scriptures, knew America would have to go through a period of cleansing but would emerge ready to embrace and live God's Law or the Perfect Law of Liberty.
How should a person act who has such a lofty outlook but finds himself in a decadent society that sometimes seems too far gone to correct? Because this is a time for making New Year's resolutions, I would like to share some of mine with you in hopes of giving you some ideas for the coming year.
NCCS is committed to teaching 50 major Making of America seminars during 1996. We will respond on a first request basis from those who wish to host a seminar in their areas.
Hoping for a fulfilling New Year for you and yours.
