A Debt of Gratitude

No matter how controversial it is to say it, America was born as a Christian nation, and we owe the Pilgrims and other early settlers—who are demonized today—our liberty. Discover the truth in this preview of our new documentary, "A City on a Hill."

America: A Christian Nation

This week on "Truths That Transform", we celebrate Thanksgiving. While our history is being rewritten, the truth is that we owe our freedom to the brave Christians who settled America. America was born as a Christian nation. And all the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the secular Left doesn't change that fact. Find out more, on the next "Truths That Transform."

Passing on the Baton of Faith

America exists because the Pilgrims and those who settled this nation desired to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And they passed the Gospel down faithfully to the next generation, who passed it down to the generation after that, and so on. To discover how you can follow in the footsteps of the Pilgrims, watch Pastor Rob Pacienza's commentary.

In Honor of Veterans
Then the soldiers likewise demanded of him [John the Baptist], "And what must we do?" He said to them, "Do no violence to anyone nor accuse any falsely, and be content with your wages."
— Luke 3:14

War is a great evil. It is a tragedy. Every Christian should abhor it and do what he can to prevent it. We are to live at peace with all men as much as lies within us. But there are times when we must fight. The greatest of Christian theologians and Reformers down through the centuries have believed this, and so, too, believed the founders of this nation.

Jesus did say "do not resist an evil person" but turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:39). This, however, is a personal ethic, and not a directive to the state. That is why nations have police forces and armies. Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2 teach how the civil ruler is to bear the sword and punish evildoers. "[F]or he [the state ruler] is the servant of God for your good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain, for he is the servant of God, an avenger to execute wrath upon him who practices" (Romans 13:4).

Today we honor those brave men and women who have served their country faithfully. We honor these brave men and women because they have secured the freedom that we enjoy in this nation under God. Peace is precious, and it is not cheap.

Thank a veteran today.

Question to ponder:
What can you do today to honor our veterans?
