A Line In The Sand

Yesterday, something remarkable happened.

Over five hundred faithful attended a unique event to Delaware culture that could also create a sea change within Delaware politics.  The culmination of months and test of faith turned out to be very encouraging for those who every election cycle sees the glimmer of hope fade away. 

The Delaware political scene has seen tea party groups and Occupy Wall Street, but the event held yesterday at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware was unique.  In its inaugural event and first event to the mass public the Delaware Faith & Freedom Coalition held a Prayers for America event.  The event pulled pastors and priests from all walks of life and from all across the state and the nation to pray for our nation.

From the moment the shofar was blown calling the faithful to prayer to the conclusion, attendees were drawn to their feet in praise and grounded in their seats in prayer for a nation torn by the secular movement attempting to dismantle a society through a rabid progressive agenda.  But these faithful would not hear any of that.

Through the uniqueness of the faith leader's words a line in the sand was drawn:

No longer are we going to stand for secularization from every facet of society, from our schools to our government to our media.  No longer are we as a society going to stand for elected leaders who allow for the genocide of the unborn. No longer are we as a society going to stand for the rampant destruction of the basic economic unit - the family. No longer are we as a society going to stand for election and re-election of political leaders who want to label and divide our communities, and instill a progressive, secular agenda that punishes prosperity and success and promotes dependency on the government to live.  No longer will we be silent, and today and everyday forthcoming we will fight until our last breath to stand up for preservation of a moral and just society.

While it is truly magical that our republic still endures over 236 years after its independence and 225 after the ratifying our nation's Constitution, our nation has see an erosion in moral and political discourse that must be reversed if the republic is to survive.  As each pastor spoke on various topics relevant to our society, it became more relevant that every vote that is cast matters and every election matters.  It became visibly clear that if united, a sea change could emerge in our communities, our cities, our counties, our state and our nation.  A sea change that could restore the order of every layer of government to the moral foundation created by our Founding Fathers. 

But no longer will we be silent.

With the upcoming election in the fall from President to every other office down to city or county council, the faithful must vote their conscience and not through the prism of a corrupt media whose sole intention is to distort the truth.  For the truth is the path forward to restore order in this chaotic world.  This sea change cannot be done without you and the hard work and dedication of the grass roots groups that want a sea change.

Surely, Faith & Freedom and its Delaware chapter will be part of this sea change, but it cannot be alone.  In the prism of faith, it would remiss that without the wisdom and education done by the Delaware Family Policy Council that the knowledge instilled by this group, the sea change would be difficult.  What the Delaware Family Policy Council does through education, policy and legislative work; the Delaware Faith & Freedom team will do through grassroots political engagement and activism to mobilize the faithful to elect leaders who have a Biblical world view and value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The resources of these two powerful organizations should make the secular left very nervous.

United on faith and with knowledge and perseverance, the Delaware Way will soon be a thing of the past.  God willing a restored and renewed Delaware and nation will emerge based on the Judea-Christian values our Founding Fathers envisioned for this great nation.

Are you ready for this call for action?

  1. I've lived in Delaware for several years,but remained blissfully ignorant of the politics. Until recently it has been too easy to just focus on matters close to home. Hopefully I'm not the only person who has been roused to action by current events and who found the Faith and Freedom event an inspiring call to action! Thanks for all of your posts and information.
