It was a cool spring day in Lexington and Concord, MA on April 19, 1775, when 700 British Regulars would march to the town green. By the end of the day, there would be 49 colonists dead, 39 wounded, and 5 missing.

It was a quiet Sunday, December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked the United States of America. The attack at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii killed 2,403 Americans and wounded 1,178.

It was a normal workday in New York City on September 11, 2001. Two hijacked planes would fly into the Twin Towers. A third plane would hit the Pentagon and a fourth plane, intended to hit somewhere in Washington D.C., would crash in a field in Pennsylvania. A total of 2,996 people died including 2,977 victims and 19 hijackers.

Fast forward to today. Fentanyl overdoses are the No. 1 cause of death among US adults, ages 18-45. More adults between 18 and 45 died of fentanyl overdoses in 2020 than COVID-19, motor vehicle accidents, cancer, and suicide. Between 2020 and 2021, nearly 79,000 people between 18 and 45 years old — 37,208 in 2020 and 41,587 in 2021 — died of fentanyl overdoses.

Fentanyl is produced in China. China openly proclaims they have a mandate of “Heaven over Tianxia” (All Under One Heaven)1  They consider this mandate an obligation to rule the world. China produces fentanyl and then ships it to Mexico where it is packaged into pills (counterfeit medications). Fentanyl is then smuggled into the United States by organized Mexican cartels. It is even put in candy, packaged as candy for consumption by the youngest of our children. Why? China considers the United States its enemy, working to rule over us one day! The cartels find our consumption of illegal drugs profitable. The US does nothing to stop either China or Mexican cartels.

Our Response: Outrage, but we have done nothing!

The US Congress’ move toward the takeover of America’s children is chilling. Their desire to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child is also a threat to the loss of parental rights. Many social programs of today include restraining parental rights like the one example in Canada where a court overturned a father’s grounding of his 12-year-old child, deeming it unfair to the child. Educational systems have compared concerned parents to domestic terrorists. Being a concerned parent at a school board meeting could get you a visit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation or worse. Where are parental rights in all of this?

Our Response: Outrage, but we have done nothing!

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)2NIV New International Version Translations – “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”

The question Solomon would ask us today is whether we can continue to be silent, to do nothing. History would tell us that it is time to do something to protect our children. Why is nothing being done to stop the injustice? It is a hard question, but one must first ask themselves is whether it is OK to kill children through drugs. One must ask themselves if it is OK to send children off into an educational system that perverts God. Is it OK to let a little child watch a drag show but suspend them for prayer or make boys and girls question birth gender and share what used to be private, safe spaces with complete indifference to their sex? Is it OK to let our government raise our children or worse yet, the United Nations?

(Psalm 127:3-5) – “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.”

Psalm 127 is a family psalm, written by King David for his son, Solomon. David is directing his son to look up to God, and to depend upon His providence, without which all Solomon’s wisdom and service would serve no purpose. The psalm shows how necessary it is that we keep in favor with God. King David views his children as blessings, gifts from God. Is not a child the future? And if so, what does our country’s future look like? God points out that He must be paramount in the parenting of our children. (Deuteronomy 6:7) stating, “Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Parenting is full-time, and protecting children is full-time. It also takes a government, and leaders who respect the sanctity of a family. The leaders we choose must be those who honor life and family. The good news is that God is on our side when it comes to raising Godly children. “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matthew 18:6, Mark 9:42).

A millstone is a set of two stones used to grind grain with one stone stationary and the other turning on top. Millstones were so important to Jewish society that Mosaic Law forbid anyone in taking someone’s millstone as collateral against a debt. (Deuteronomy 24:6). A millstone was needed to grind grain to make bread. The bread was considered a life-sustaining food. Millstones were also heavy. Therefore, to put it bluntly, Jesus said that you would be cast into the deep sea with a millstone tied around your neck if you harmed or even caused a single child to sin. One might surmise that based on our society today, we will need a lot of millstones when Jesus returns. What has happened to our current social order and the concept of sin? Does the government now define for us what is sinful? Can anyone erase what God Himself has called detestable? There is a reality here that is being used to confuse society. Only God defines sin!

Why has our society become so silent?  This year, over 100,000 young people will die of fentanyl. Yet the consumption of Chinese goods and services by the US is approximately 500 billion dollars a year and growing. Our southern border remains open to Mexican cartels to import Fentanyl in quantities so great, that there is enough to kill everyone in the United States multiple times. Is this not reason enough to try to stop the flow of drugs? Has our society become so comfortable with sin that we are sacrificing our children upon Satan’s altar? And for what purpose? Is legalization, calling drugs no longer sinful, a useful strategy?

(Deuteronomy 6:1-25) – “These are the commands, decrees, and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, so that you, your children, and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy a long life. Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and your gates. When the Lord your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you—a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied, be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. Fear the Lord your God, serve him only, and take your oaths in his name. Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; for the Lord, your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land. Do not put the Lord your God to the test as you did at Massah. Be sure to keep the commands of the Lord your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you. Do what is right and good in the Lord’s sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land the Lord promised on oath to your ancestors, thrusting out all your enemies before you, as the Lord said. In the future, when your son asks you, “What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees, and laws the Lord our God has commanded you?” tell him: “We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. Before our eyes, the Lord sent signs and wonders—great and terrible—on Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household. But he brought us out from there to bring us in and give us the land he promised on oath to our ancestors. The Lord commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the Lord our God so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today. And if we are careful to obey all this law before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness.”

Now be truthful. Did you take time to read all (Deuteronomy 6:1-25)? You see, that is the problem we face today. Under the ruse of social justice, equity, and peace at any price, people have abandoned looking to God for His advice. It is not a complex problem we have here. God simply says to take responsibility for your nation’s sinful behavior. You might want to re-read (Deuteronomy 6:1-25). God calls us to appoint godly leadership. God calls us to protect children because they are our future. And to love Him with all your heart, soul, and strength!
