THE CHRISTIAN PARTY
- To bring honor and glory to God.
- To direct the United States of America back to Christian principles.
- To lead millions to a personal relationship with God.
If you are receiving this letter , it is because I am confident of your faith in God. Faith that is sure of God is the only faith there is ( Oswald Chambers).
The demise of our nation is occurring right before our eyes every day. Biblical history gives evidence that a nation that refuses to honor God and His principles will not continue to exist. Ephesians 2 : 2 refers to Satan as “the prince of the power of the air” and tells us that he is the spirit that works in the children of disobedience. In Ephesians 6 : 10 – 18, Paul informed us to “be strong in the Lord and the power of His might, to put on the whole armor of God so that we can withstand the wiles of the devil, and having done all to stand…” He also informed us that we battle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places. In Luke 10 : 18, Christ told the disciples that He beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. He put an end to that fight pretty quick. I am confident that God wants to work through us and other Christians to defeat Satan in his attack on our country. Ephesians 2 : 10 tells us that ” we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” .
As today is a cold, windy, snowy day in Rogersville, I am reminded that many of the American Revolutionary War soldiers fought in deep snow without any boots to wear, and of course many of them died to give us the freedom that we have today. They also fought for the same Christian principles that we believe . Francis Scott Key, the author of The Star Spangled Banner, written during the war of 1812 while on a mission for President Madison, was the son of a distinguished Revolutionary War officer. He was also known as a fine spiritual gentleman and was an active lay leader in the Protestant Episcopal Church. The fourth stanza of our national anthem is :
” Oh, thus be it ever when free-men shall stand Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation; Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation ! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just; And this be our motto: ” IN GOD IS OUR TRUST!” And the Star-Spangled banner in triumph shall wave O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave. ”
We should not take our peace and freedom for granted. The Revolutionary War soldiers made a tremendous sacrifice for us. They can be lost a lot easier than they were gained. Refusal to honor God and His doctrines is an internal disease, like a cancer, that will destroy this country, and has already began. Evil, left unchecked, is self propagating . However, righteousness is also self propagating, and God is so much more powerful than the devil or any evil. We just have to honor Him and obey Him, He will do the rest. If we resist the devil, he will flee.
The recent position that President Obama took concerning homosexual marriages is contrary to the Christian heritage of our nation. The time for the Christian community to stand together and face these and other issues is now.
This letter comes after much prayer and anticipation. I pray that I will not be the true author, but God will use me as His tool. I consider it to be one of the most important documents that I have ever written. I also believe it is the answer to millions of prayers for our nation.
In the battle of “good -vs- evil “, our nation is losing. The increase in the number of U.S. citizens who do not believe in God and those that claim homosexuality is alarming. Other problems include the elimination of prayer in schools, the breakdown of the family, the invasion of pornography, infidelity, and homosexuality into our homes through T.V. and the internet. Many children are raised in environments that provide very little opportunity to ever get to know God, but instead expose them to the things mentioned above.
While serving on the board of deacons of The First Baptist Church in Rogersville, TN and also being the chairman of The Stewardship Committee (budget committee), I learned pretty quick that in most churches, approximately 10 % of the members do 90 % of the work and contribute 90 % of the money needed to operate the church. The church has a disease called complacency, by which I define as church members who recognize problems, definitely want something to be done to correct them, but do not want to get involved in doing the actual work. In a 1960’s crusade in Chicago, Billy Graham said , ” We just need Christians to be Christians” .
I believe God wants His church to tackle these problems in our nation. I also believe that the majority of U.S. citizens want these problems to be corrected, but this percentage is becoming less daily. I believe God has called me to get involved in this ministry. This is the reason I am contacting you. It is a huge task, which without God working through you, millions of other Christians, and me, it will not get done. But, with God, all things are possible.
Please find attached a proposed campaign platform for the 2016 presidential election. With God’s help, I pray that I will be elected the next president of our country, to work with Christians nationwide, to implement these changes. I am seeking help in getting this project started with the following :
- Locate a Christian attorney who has experience with Public Policy and national election regulations
- Designate a Treasurer
- Designate a Secretary
- Form an advisory board
- Designate campaign chairmen in each state to coordinate getting the required number of signatures on petitions to place me on that states ballet
- Develop a final campaign platform, the Christian Party, and a web site
- Reach out to churches and all Christians for their support and prayers
- Making this the largest crusade in history, reaching out to the entire nation .
Please pray that God will have His will. I know this campaign will bring honor and glory to God, help turn this nation back to Christian principles, and lead millions to a personal relationship with Him.
May this letter be in God’s will and bring honor and glory to His name. Please pray for The Christian Party.
