Eccles. 1:9-10, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. [10] Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.”

Psalm 94:8, “Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?”

Proverbs 1:5, “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:”

Proverbs 3:7, “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.”

Proverbs 8:33, “Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.”

Proverbs 9:8, “Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.”

Proverbs 10:14, “Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction”.

Proverbs 12:15, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.”

The following was written by Professor Alexander Tyler over 200 years ago while our 13 colonies were still a part of Great Britain.  He was writing about the fall of the Athenian Republic over 2,000 years earlier.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.  From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.

The average age of the world’s great civilizations has been two hundred years.  These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.”

Circle of Democracy

By Alexander Tyler, 1770

Editor’s Note:  Those I have shown this to believe we are in dependency and will soon be back in bondage,

Our founding Fathers warned us about becoming a democracy but we didn’t listen or heed their warnings and now we will be required to pay the piper!  God help us.

Now Ponder this; in the 44 years that abortion has been legal in this country we have murdered over 54 million living souls.  Think of the tax money we could have coming in right now, the Social Security revenue, the worker base?  But no we have to have the luxury of having sex with whomever we please, creating babies and then murdering them before they are born, because we don’t want the responsibility of raising them or the responsibility of our actions!

We could have already killed the person who would have found the cure for cancer, aids, diabetes, MS, MD, Parkinsons, Alzheimers and every other disease that haunts mankind.  Our self-centeredness has helped to destroy mankind, and yet we cannot see the errors of our ways!  All we want is convenience and our way.

Our Founding Fathers put into our founding documents the phrase; “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”  No territory was to be allowed to become a state unless they understood and prescribed to this belief.  This phrase simply means that no state or our central government would pass a law that violated the laws of God.

No creature God has created kills its young while still in the womb; no creature God created has sexual relations male with male and female with female, except for the human creature; and we think the human race is advanced?  God help us!

Now we want to pass a health care bill that would mandate abortion and the killing of our senior citizens because we will not have enough money to continue to give these folks the needed procedures they might need to stay alive.  God how can you stay your hand of judgment from falling upon this evil and perverse generation?
