Sometimes the Minority IS Enough
By Steve Pauwels / 7August 2012
Even those of us who love God n' Country can get discouraged. Actually, it’s because
we love God and country that we DO occasionally get discouraged. Our vision
for America is pretty tall; but all around us, on almost every cultural
front, things are looking pretty low these days. However, as Jim Hodges reminds us
below, all through history it has often been a numerically unimpressive,
but still devoted, minority that has led the way to breakthrough and
civilizational transformation; some good, some bad, but transformation
nonetheless. I’ve been told only approximately 1/3 of the colonists
actively supported the American Revolution – and look how that turned
out! Take heart, folks. Feeling outmatched? You’re in good company
This past month we celebrated America’s birthday. The holiday was
July 4, 1776. Will our 236th be happy or something else?
Some would say that the
use of the term, ‘American exceptionalism’ is arrogance, still others would
believe the idea of a declining America is disheartening. Here are some questions:
1. Does our birthday this past month signal a season when our
nation’s spiritual, moral, economic, and cultural decline begins a turn
around FOR the good of our nation?
2. Does it signal a
spiritual awakening which includes but goes beyond patriotism?
3. Could we
begin to see the decline of an Era which began in the radical '60's that
has propelled our nation headlong into Sharia Law, Radical Islam, Gay-rights, Socialism, Marxism, Anti-capitalism, abortion,
and Keynesian economics?
4. Could the Biblical world-view our founding fathers embraced begin to ascend
The Issue before us: does America pivot this year or not?
