There has been much said about what great things technology has
done for America and the world. We've heard much about what
great gains we in America have made in "social progress"
when in fact, about the only progress that has been made began in
the 1950's with the civil rights movement that gave people of
non-European ethnicity and darker skin color more opportunity to
Are we as a nation better off now that we are a pagan nation?
Has the Supreme Court's decisions against the Bible and against
America's Christian-based heritage improved our lot in life?
How can we tell?
We might do the standard routine of asking questions about
* Are we better off for having "family"
redefined to include all cohabitation, any combination of sexes?
Has this produced a better environment in which to live and raise
* Are we better off with the plague of drug use and the
* Are we better off as a nation with a soaring crime
rate, much of it drug related but much of it also related to
domestic violence, particularly among live-in partners?
* Are we better off with growing addictions to gambling
now that lotteries and casinos are everywhere and greed is the new
* Are we better off with children who don't know who
their father is, was, or may have been and a mother who has a new
man around the house every few weeks or months?
* Are we better off with "welfare generations"
who perpetuate their victim status and glorify it into a
subculture of our social fabric?
* Are we better off with an increasing number of laws to
regulate things that used to be regulated by the family and the
* Are we better off having the federal government intrude
into every aspect of our lives so that there is no privacy and
little meaning to the Bill of Rights?
* Are we better off with women being accepted as suitable
mothers when they have one child after another out of wedlock, and
consider marriage some kind of irrelevant formality that is not
necessary for living with someone in a relationship of
* Are we better off because we have to filter the
internet, the television and almost every other form of media, and
check to see how much filth a movie contains before the kids can
* Are we better off because the Catholic Church is
reining in its pedophiles (somewhat) but NAMBLA and other sickos
are pushing pedophilia through other means all across the nation?
* Are we better off with government regulations on
everything, taxes on everything, and the government watching what
people eat, smoke, drink, breathe, drive, obtain from the
pharmacy, question their doctors about, or call for pastoral
* Are we better off now, with our gadgets for which we
have new laws prohibiting their use while we drive the city
* Are we better off for larger homes where the family
(whatever it is) can stay away from one another rather than being
together and part of one another's lives?
* Are we better off with a somewhat-religion of many
gods, chief among which are the State and Self?
Look around and you will find the answers. Increased
debt, suicide, homicide, confusion, stress, emotional overload,
loneliness, dissatisfaction, anger, and the desire to "get
away from it all" as the commercials for resorts and
vacations emphasize so strongly.
If it's all that good living in a frantic pagan nation, why do
we need to get away from it all?
What we are observing is a nation of people without peace of
mind or contentment of soul, a people treading the turbulent
waters of social upheaval and technological change that stresses
the mind and emotions, and no place to turn now that God has been
rejected in our land by all except the devout few.
Even the churches have been taken in by the Great Delusion, and
have bent to the will of the heathen who look
"religious" rather than the faithful who quietly live in
harmony with their Lord. But tares are dangerous weeds in
the wheatfields because they look like wheat until they are ripe.
They choke out or try to choke out the wheat.
Those who remember the front porch gathering, before the days
of the drive-by shooting rampage can remember when we knew our
neighbors. Now we are not only a nation of pagans but a
nation of strangers, particularly in big cities. We're a
nation of debtors who owe funny money to funny-money lenders at
usurious interest rates while prices climb out of control and the
opportunity to "get ahead" financially seems to vanish
like the desert mirage as one draws near to it.
When we followed the old paths, the ones known by our founding
fathers, we were not only a free people but a much healthier
people. Faith, emotional and physical soundness interact.
The heathen, the pagans, have always had a culture of death and
human sacrifice. We have a culture of death by abortion of
the unborn and euthanasia for the elderly who dwell helplessly in
so-called "care centers" and the disappearing children
who vanish from sight and whose photos wind up on "have you
seen me" posters. This is human sacrifice, a perfect
example of paganism.
Forty or fifty years ago almost every parent knew where their
Forty or fifty years ago we were happy with one older car and a
new steam iron, a black and white television, and kids happily
playing outside while stay-at-home moms cooked meals from scratch
and divorce was still considered personal failure except for
Well ... consider the evidence, the results. Is the proof
of the pudding in the eating? Is the litmus test in the
color of the paper?
Test and see and be honest. Are we better off as a pagan
Or are we falling apart as a people, as a nation, as a bastion
of freedom? Have we fallen like Humpty Dumpty into
irreparable damage and our judgment lies in a puddle on the floor
Test and see.
