This is from a history book used in the Christian Liberty Academy home study/school program:
Civilizations have always progressed through the following sequence:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith
2. From spiritual faith to great courage
3. From courage to liberty
4. From liberty to abundance
5. From abundance to complacency
6. From complacency to apathy
7. From apathy to dependence
8. From dependence back into bondage
If the Declaration of Independence and resulting reveloution some 200+ years ago represented point 2 and 3, then where do you think we are now? Have we not had abundance? Could we still be at that point? Given the fact that household savings rates are negative, much of everything has been bought on debt, and our money has been devalued by a private bank issuing more and more fiat currency to bring up prices of things like homes, we must assume we have reached a point marked by either level 5 or 6. The recent bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is just one event in many pointing more towards level 6. We hear people all the time asking what the government is going to do about this problem or that one. We even subsidize business these days! But when you bring this up in conversation, you might hear something like ‘well, I know, but now that we are here we have to work with this system’, or ‘the population of the world has grown so much…..’ This points more towards level 7! Many administrations, working with advisors from groups like the CFR have worked to build and strengthen international unelected bodies. In so doing, they are building the foundations for world government as is warned about in the book of Revelation.
Wake up and turn away from the complacency towards your elected servants who work against our Constitution and the liberty it is meant to protect. Fight back the apathy that tells you there is nothing you can do about it. Gain courage through your spiritual faith and work towards liberty and abundance!
