Teetering America and Brave Texans: Remember the Alamo

Written by Rick David on July 22, 2013

The group also heard from Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky. They both gave speeches supporting biblical values. While I’m sure that either would make a better President than the current jihadist-in-chief, I’m skeptical that, given the country’s current level of knowledge, either could get elected or that it just might be too late.

It occurred to me that these speakers were preaching to the choir. Most of the pastors were well into their fifties or older. I saw very few younger pastors there. Who is going to reach the younger generation? Even if these older pastors do preach biblical truth, will younger people listen? Again, I’m skeptical. Sometimes I think that the only thing that will get the attention of these young folks is cold, cruel reality. That horse may need a case of divine whoop ass in order to get their attention. Perhaps the best that we can do is to pray for mercy and a miracle.

I was struck by the contingent of Texans at this Iowa meeting. Last week, brave Texans battled “Satanists” to pass the strictest pro-life law in the land. Perhaps, God’s grace will shine on Texas. It just may end up being the last free place on earth. Thinking of all of these Texans at the meeting, my memory was jogged to recall the phrase “Remember the Alamo!” It was a rallying cry for Texans fighting for their freedom to remember the brave men that died in defense of that freedom.
