Woe is me

“Woe is me for I am undone”, thus saith the prophet of old. We’re watching a revolution unfold before our very eyes. This is not the revolution of “76”. Whether it be fascist, socialist, or communist is of little consequence to the battle, although it appears the latter is the direction. But it is totalitarian, this we can see clearly. Liberty was struck at the root with an axe created from our children’s stolen inheritance. Promises of our forefathers were burned in a fire meant to warm the backsides of a few hostile people who are intoxicated with their own vision of a utopia built upon the bones of the republic.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight! Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink, Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away justice from the righteous man!” Isa 5:20-23

Their revolution is far from complete, and the battle is far from over. It is not yet clear which will prevail – liberty or tyranny. But last night I wept in the knowledge that the stakes just got higher, and the cost that much greater. A friend recently said that it will take the same commitment, fortitude, and willingness to pay the price to retain our freedom that our forefathers paid to give us our freedom. Freedom is never free, but it should never be sold for any price.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage”. Gal 5:1
