    Bill FedererRight to Bear Arms: Lexington & Concord, Patriots’ Defense
    Guest Essay by Bill Federer 
    The sun never set on the British Empire. It was the largest empire in world history.Out of nearly 200 countries in the world, only 22 were never controlled, invaded or attacked by Britain. In April of 1775, the British Royal Military Governor of Massachusetts, General Thomas Gage, sent 800 British Army Regulars, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, on a preemptive raid to seize guns from American patriots at Lexington and Concord. 

    George Mason of Virginia stated: 

    “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

    Peter HammondResponding to Resistance to Reformation
    Article by Peter Hammond
    Resisting the Call to ActionFrom the very beginning, as Africa Christian Action was launched 30 years ago, there were those who resisted the call to action. “You Cannot Legislate Morality!” “You cannot legislate morality!” insisted many. However, all legislation enforces some version of morality. Either the state will exercise the wrath of God against sin, or it will exercise the wrath of man against God and His people. Either legislation protects babies from the violence and injustice of abortion, or, as we see happening now, legislation will be designed to penalise and prosecute medical professionals who are contentious objectors to participating in the taking of innocent life. It did not take the “gay rights” advocates long to move from demands for “toleration”, to approval, to state funding, to demands for conformity and then criminalising of criticism. The Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) being forced on schools at this time is an example of how the situation has so drastically deteriorated to where pornographic child abuse can become state-mandated, not only in government schools, but even private “independent” schools!

    Guest Essay by Bill Federer
    Douglas MacArthur told West Point cadets, May 1962:“The soldier, above all other men, is required to practice the greatest act of religious training-sacrifice.“In battle and in the face of danger and death, he discloses those Divine attributes which his Maker gave when He created man in His own image …. “No physical courage and no brute instinct can take the place of Divine help which alone can sustain him.

    “However horrible the incidents of war may be, the soldier who is called upon to offer and to give his life for his country is the noblest development of mankind.”

    Robert G. NatelsonWhy the District of Columbia Should Not Be a State
    Guest Essay Robert G. Natelson
    In June 1783, the Confederation Congress was meeting in what is now Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Continental soldiers surrounded the building demanding back pay. They were peaceful, but the intimidation was plain.Congress asked Pennsylvania authorities to clear away the demonstrators. Pennsylvania authorities refused to do so. Congress accordingly left Philadelphia for Princeton, New Jersey, thereby making that town the national capital for a short time.This incident confirmed the American Founders in their opinion that the national capital shouldn’t be at the mercy of any state. The Founders also knew that in European countries, national officeholders could be held hostage by mobs that local authorities were unwilling, or unable, to control.Read On 


    Franklin GrahamUpdate on the Equality Act
    Guest Essay Franklin Graham
    Now Is the Time to Pray—and Speak Up!The Equality Act already passed the House and is coming before the Senate soon.A piece of dangerous legislation inaccurately called the Equality Act was passed by the House last week, 224-206. The Senate is expected to take up the bill very soon, and the result will likely come down to a razor-thin margin. If it is passed by the Senate, President Biden will likely sign it into law as he has made it a priority of his administration’s first 100 days. Every Senator’s vote is critical. This is a crucial turning point for our nation. I cannot say this clearly enough—for individuals, for businesses, for churches, and for ministries of faith, the Equality Act is a threat to life as we know it in our nation today. It’s a real game-changer.

    [King David] told them to teach the children of Judah the Song of the Bow; indeed it is written in the Book of Jasher:The beauty of Israel is slain on your high places!
    How the mighty have fallen!
    Tell it not in Gath,
    Proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon—
    Lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice,
    Lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.O mountains of Gilboa,
    Let there be no dew nor rain upon you,
    Nor fields of offerings.
    For the shield of the mighty is cast away there!
    The shield of Saul, not anointed with oil.
    From the blood of the slain,
    From the fat of the mighty,
    The bow of Jonathan did not turn back,
    And the sword of Saul did not return empty.Saul and Jonathan were beloved and pleasant in their lives,
    And in their death they were not divided;
    They were swifter than eagles,
    They were stronger than lions.O daughters of Israel, weep over Saul,
    Who clothed you in scarlet, with luxury;
    Who put ornaments of gold on your apparel.

    How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle!
    Jonathan was slain in your high places….

    How the mighty have fallen,
    And the weapons of war perished!

    — 2 Samuel 1:18-25, 27 ©NKJV
