Mainstream liberal media outlets and platforms are now obvious in their mission to eliminate all traditional American voices. Any of those who would challenge the technocratic-political realm that America is seemingly imprisoned too (at the moment), is now a special type of sociopolitical target. Fortunately, the higher echelon of elites who play “master puppeteer” to the societal engineering concocted daily tend to forget that there is an underground institution alive and well in America called Christian Protestantism. Much of what we see today in the form of persecution is just the tip of the iceberg. If you look at present-day and even medieval England, it is foreshadowing something much worse here, should the radically liberal conglomerates take full reign.
I use the term “underground institution” of Protestant Christianity to refer to those faithful whom have become effected by our post-Modern age in America. Being persecuted has caused the church body to leave the brick-and-mortar structure that we pray in on Sunday to take up home Bible study. We American’s have had it really good here up until recently. We should be happy to know that we had it so good! The unfortunate news is that we are now on the unrecoverable downslide.
It is this reality that I did some scholarly research into the thought behind America’s Destiny in the mid-19th century, to get a feel for the atmosphere. I found two resources in particular that illustrate that mood:
Alexander Everett Hill (American diplomatist, politician, and Boston man of letters) would write, America, or, A general survey of the political situation of the several powers of the western continent, with conjectures on their future prospects. Mr. Hill, a citizen of the United States, would write that the Protestant revolution was most likely pressed by all of the lives actively affected by Christianity. It was “long in preparation“ and “very slow in its development.” He goes on to say that regardless of population size or military force (think, Russia and China) there is more to making a nation great. It is “favorable geographic position (think, North America compared to landlocked Europe or Asia), and a good government with industry (think, Protestant Ethic), wealth, and knowledge,” these are the characteristics of principle that make a nation its greatest. It is this then, that these are also “the causes which have given to the United States, at this early period of this national existence, the lofty position of a leading power among nations.”
Another observation here in contrast is of Communist and Dictatorial Russia in the 19th century: “Like that of all despotic states, with the changes of the person of the despot … displayed since Peter the Great, one of the best examples, as it certainly has the most imposing and remarkable one ever known, of the worst description of political institutions.” So it seems here that those elites who live life dictating others become a “victim” to “curiosity” and “habitual pursuits to the field of politics.” The elite aim to become incorporated into the Communist/Socialist state, typically ran by a dictator regime. The individual happiness level for each person would depend of the level of government acceptance into their mainstream social world. What else would you expect from any communistic socialist dictatorship?
As a historian, I appreciate looking back at sermons preached from the pulpit in the 19th century. You find real honest history there. In light of the recent attacks on the Freedom of Religion in America recently by the liberal left (friendly to communism and socialism), I found a resource written by Pastor Eden Burroughs Foster would give a sermon on “the crime against freedom, in Kansas and Washington” on August 31, 1856. Pastor Burroughs would also see the political elites in America in the mid-19th century appearing just as corrupt today, with attacks against the pulpit itself!
He states, “Let the haters of freedom call me a ‘political priest’ when they will and where they will … I will strive by a patriotic and Christian spirit, by an exalted and just discussion of political doctrine, by a holy life and an inflexible adherence to candor and truth, to make my title significant, beautiful, and honorable. I will strive to make it quite as honorable for one class of ministers to defend Freedom as it is for another class to defend Slavery.” So is it truly unreasonable to believe the United States of America achieved her greatness out of living the Christian doctrine? Because all of those who live by the doctrine of man (think, secular humanism) usually still populate the modern-day civilizations still struggling to keep up.
