Christian Leaders Create a Declaration to Stand Against the Growing Government Tyranny

A few days ago, a large group of Catholic and evangelical Christian leaders signed the Manhattan Declaration.

The declaration is a pledge in defense of life, religious liberty and traditional marriage.

The Manhattan Declaration is a wake-up for the church," writes Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries and co-author of the declaration. "It is also crystal-clear message to civil authorities that we will not, under any circumstances, stand idly by as our religious freedom comes under assault."

Freedom and liberty are the foundation of civil order and a sound economy, without defending them, the future will only further deteriorate.

According to, over 93,000 others in the last few days have added their signatures to the list of 152 Christian leaders who have committed to the pledge.

The website states that the declaration calls upon all fellow citizens to join in defending "fundamental truths about justice and the common good," namely:

• The sanctity of human life
• The dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife
• The rights of conscience and religious liberty.

"We've always said that we will never compromise what we believe," Colson said, "but this is the first time that all of us have come together across confessional lines and said, 'We're prepared to pay the price. You cannot cross this line, otherwise we will pay the price – we will suffer if we must to avoid doing evil.'"

Christians are preparing to defend their freedoms to worship, to speech and to obey God when confronted with laws that prohibit them.  This is a line in the sand to protect America from further deteriorating. 

Liberty and freedom are rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ and were foundational of the creation of our nation, directly resulting in our prosperity.  It was not by accident that the U.S. became the most prosperous nation in the history of the world. 

It was primarily because of the wide spread teachings of Jesus Christ that personal freedom and liberty were embrased and led to great breakthroughs and highest level of productivity the world has ever seen. 

In the last century, the U.S. has also given more money away then any nation in history and remains one of the only defenders of faith and teachers of capitalism.

But over the last 30-40 years, much of the teachings of Jesus Christ have been replaced with teachings of Humanism (the goodness of people) taught in public schools today which has resulted in the first Post-Christian President in 2008.

Since then Obama has increased the over expanding government, further driving the economy into the ground and further reducing our freedom and liberty.  His latest plan is to socialize Healthcare and force Christians to promote, sponsor and perform Abortions.

The hate crimes bill also attacks religion freedom by threatening pastors with jail if they preach what Jesus Christ taught was sin against God.

I didn’t think it would come to this so quickly, but the very fact that the Christian leaders felt compelled to create the Manhattan Declaration is a clear sign that we are approaching a period of civil breakdown. 

This is going to force Christians off the fence.  The millions that claim to be Christians are going to have to start to decide if they are really willing to bare that label.  Christians that are ‘luke warm’ are soon going to have to choose whether they are going to obey the civil law or God’s law. 

What will you do?  You can sign the declaration here.

I think we have two choices, either we increase morality or we increase government and right now we are clearly increasing government.

What Has Government Done to Our Money?

Rothbard gives us an exceptionally clear, detailed description of what money is and how it has come to be manipulated by governments and central bankers into almost worthless inflationary fiat paper currency. He then explains how gold became the most respected and trustworthy currency of choice and the prospect of either hyperinflation or the greatest depression the world has ever seen may be arriving in the very near future.

The Case Against the Fed

This book, written by Murray Rothbard, an economist and historian of fairly well known repute, is a scathing attack on not only the Federal Reserve, but the interests that created this institution. Rothbard explains how the Federal Reserve is the true source in the destruction of wealth, which has led to the destruction of the middle class and continues to sift money into the hands of the wealthiest.

Gold: The Once and Future Money

Governments and central bankers around the world today unanimously agree on the desirability of stable money, ever more so after some monetary disaster has reduced yet another economy to smoking ruins. Lewis shows how gold provides the stability needed to foster greater prosperity and productivity throughout the world. He offers an insightful look at money in all its forms, from the seventh century B.C. to the present day, explaining in straightforward layman’s terms the effects of inflation, deflation, and floating currencies along with their effect on prices, wages, taxes, and debt.

The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century

What Friedman means by "flat" is "connected": the lowering of trade and political barriers and the exponential technical advances of the digital revolution that have made it possible to do business, or almost anything else, instantaneously with billions of other people across the planet. This book is perhaps the most popular for its historical revelation of how globalization has quickly changed India, China and America.
