Today ... as we celebrate the 228th birthday of our nation ... join me in the Old Testament book of 2 Chronicles. And once there, turn to chapter 7. Years ago one of our American submarines sank off the eastern coast. Divers attempted to rescue them and when they went down, they could hear the survivors tapping on the side of that submarine in Morse Code. They were tapping a question: ''Is there any hope? Is there any hope?'' And...

We are on the third lesson of the series of messages entitled ''America In Crisis.'' Today the message is in the form of a question, ''Should God Have A Place In Government?'' There are two extremes on this issue. There are those who would say that God should have no place at all in government. There are those who would say on the other hand that God should run government...

Last week I was in Philadelphia to speak for Promise Keepers and I flew in early since I had never been there before so I could spend some time sightseeing. I love American history and I went to see Betsy Ross' home, the gravesite of Benjamin Franklin, the Liberty Bell and then for me the grand Finale-Independence Hall-the place where both the Declaration...

A December 12, 2003 article from the Associated Press contained the headline: ''God Is Back in 'God Bless the USA.''' The story was about the Pacifica High School in Oxnard, California.

William Wallace asked the right question. If you saw the movie Braveheart, you know the story of the Scottish patriot. Mel Gibson directed and starred in the 1995 movie about the Scottish revolt in the 1400's. At one point in the movie, Wallace prepares a rag tag band of rebels for battle. They must face a larger and better-armed English army. His says to his men...

I think we understand that music is a big part of the celebrations we have in America. On special holidays we always have music, both secular and sacred. As we celebrate our independence on the Fourth of July, music is a vital part of that celebration as well. We have anything from Lone Star and Sarah Evans, all the way up to the Boston Pops. We sing…

Our Freedom in Christ! Galatians 4:31 says, 'We are FREE.'' Then in chapter 5, ''Stand fast, therefore, IN THE FREEDOM wherewith Christ hath MADE us free, and be not ENTANGLED again with the yoke of bondage.'' We are free! Christ made us free! Be not entangled again! Verse 31: ''So, then, brethren, we are not children of the BOND-woman...

America has enjoyed the signature blessings of the Lord. God has blessed America. America has born the fruits of the kingdom at times. A great gleaning needs to be done in our society to gather and groom those spiritual qualities inherent in our emergence as a nation. When the virtues of our young nation are mentioned there are those who seek to deny a...

The Psalm you have the prayer of a patriot. Here's a man praying for his nation. And he's praying for revival. I want to tell you I make no apology whatsoever for being a red-blooded, flag-waving American patriot. I believe it is logical, I believe it is reasonable, I believe it is Biblical to be patriotic. A roving reporter came up to a man on the street and said…
