Why Worry When You Can Pray

I am often asked, “How can you stay focused so intently upon the situations and circumstances surrounding America’s current condition of managed decline without succumbing to the mind-chilling depression it warrants?”

How can I watch with the contextual awareness of an Historian the seemingly unstoppable advance of the progressives in their quest to re-build America in their own image without falling victim to the lure of apathy and the thrill of the games?

What is it that allows me to gaze daily at the man-caused disasters which befall us as we morph from our nation to the Obamanation without embracing the nihilism so common to the citizens of falling empires?

There is one common solution to these apparent paradoxes.  There is one answer to these discomforting questions.  Because there is one name that stands above all nations, all circumstances, and all names and that name is Jesus.

If it wasn’t for my rock solid faith in Jesus I would despair.  If it wasn’t for my faith in Jesus I would turn away from the shame of our surrender, the enormity of our decline and the potential of our looming defeat.  As a believer in limited government, personal liberty and economic freedom without Jesus I would give-up.  I would look at the reality of our situation and admit the subjugation of my nation to this band of looting utopians who have gathered the reins of power and are leading us like sheep to the slaughter into a dystopian future of unlimited government, personal servitude, and a centrally-planned economy.

However, I do have Jesus as my personal Savior.  I confess Him as my Lord and Savior.  I believe that God has raised Him from the dead, and that He will come again.

Yes, I follow current events, the History of the Future, like a housewife follows her people on any other soap opera.  I tune in every day to see what new perils Lady Liberty faces, and what dastardly deeds Simon Lagree Obama will perpetrate upon the chained and restrained citizens who watch helplessly as their nation floats on an ice flow of freedom constantly melting beneath them.  Yet just like those readers of Uncle Tom’s cabin so long ago I have my Tom.  I have my joy and the lifter of my head.  I have Jesus. So I know that no matter what happens here and no matter what may happen to me or mine He will be my reward.

The followers of some other religion who say they are a religion of peace may have declared war upon us.  They have adopted a policy of convert or die.  However I know that Jesus has already won the war. I know that He has already died for me and though this body may perish He has already done all the dying I will ever have to do.

It was not always this way.  Yes, I have always been obsessed with current events.  Yes, I have always studied History, economics, and political science.  Yes, I have always been aware of the context and the goal of the Progressive horde.  However there was a time when I didn’t have this hope that lives inside of me.  There was a time when the thought of being a pawn in a rigged game, being the citizen of an occupied nation sold by uninformed voters to demagogues intent upon the subversion of the Constitution drove me to despair.  Watching the incremental surrender caused me to embrace a philosophy of militant apathy.  I didn’t care and I couldn’t stand anyone who did.

This led to a hollowness that made any success or pleasure I experienced seem futile and merely a diversion.  I was an atheist.  I didn’t believe in God.  I didn’t believe in spirits.  All I believed in was what I could see, and all I could see was the decay of something once promising: the selling of the land of the free and the home of the brave for a bowl of pottage called entitlement.  At the age of thirty I had reached my limit.  I was convinced nothing meant anything.  I was sure that my nation on its way to freedom had turned around and looked longingly at the chains of tyranny they had broken and was turning before my eyes into a pillar of salt.  It seemed no one could read the handwriting on the wall, and I was playing the fiddle while Rome burned.

There came a time when I was saying to myself over and over, “I’ve got to try something, I’ve got to try something.”  I was a drug addict, an alcoholic, and I thought if I could just find a better high or a smoother whiskey all my anxieties would disappear.  No matter what I tried it didn’t work.  The rotting stench of decay still filled my mind.  I couldn’t take my eyes off the slow motion train wreck that has been America’s path.  I was thinking the unthinkable and wondering if there was any reason to go on?  I didn’t believe in an afterlife.  I believed that here was all there was.  So I thought if I wasn’t here the sorrow would stop.  Yet something within me still clutched at straws and kept saying, “I’ve got to try something, I’ve got to try something.”

Then one day as I went about my work saying this to myself over and over, I heard someone say, “Why don’t you try Jesus.”  As a devout believer in Militant Apathy and a devout non-believer in everything else I turned to follow my regular pattern of smashing in the face of anyone foolish enough to mention Jesus to me, and no one was there.  I was in a church for a secular reason at the time and there was no one else in the entire building.  I know because I looked.  I had distinctly heard an answer to my perennial question, “Why don’t you try Jesus” yet I knew no one else was there.

As an atheist who didn’t believe in anything except the visible, that was, to say the least, disconcerting.  I started attending that church the next week.  It was Christian church.  I knew from my youth the Christianity, which I had rejected in that same youth, was built upon the Bible so I started reading.

I read Mathew, Mark, Luke, and john.  By the time I finished John I knew I had to make a decision.  All of this was either true or it was false.  If it was false it was just another lie in a world filled with lies.  But if it was true it was the most important truth in the world.  I knew from my study of History that many of the early followers of Jesus including Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were killed because of their faith.  I also knew that each of them had been given the opportunity to reject Jesus, admit what they had written and what they preached was lies and live, or they could affirm the truth of what they said and die.  I knew they had all chosen death rather than say it was a lie.

Then I reasoned, if this story, this good news about a God who became flesh, paid the price of all sin by dying a sinless death upon a cross, and who purchased our everlasting life by defeating death rising from the grave was a lie they would have known it since they wrote it.  They would have known there was no Savior, no salvation, and that their death would have been final.  They would have known all this, and they would have chosen life over death.  They didn’t.  They chose death in this life, because they believed in a life after this life: the life their writing told us about.

At that moment I asked Jesus to be my Savior.  Suddenly a light burst forth in my being that has never gone out.  A joy replaced the sadness.  Hope replaced depression as I chose life over death, and I have spent every day since then trying to live for Him because He chose to live for me.  Since that day it has never been about who I am but about what He’ done, and not about what I’ve done but about who He is.

Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.

If you are overwhelmed by the calamity which is looming in our future, by the soul crushing sadness of living as citizens of a city on the hill that is committing suicide before our eyes……….

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

So why worry when you can pray….;–)

Obamanation

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyv5EovqoJo[/youtube]

I chose to use an undisclosed studio so I could paint privately, without interruption, to focus on the task of embedding in a single painting all the subtle, mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration.

I am just one person, a citizen of this country using my first amendment rights to speak out through my art. This is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama.

To those who scoff or wish to trivialize this painting, I challenge you… I DARE YOU… study the links of the various symbols and metaphors that you see. There are over 60 in the painting. No person can analyze this image and learn about these facts and still, in good conscience, vote for Obama in 2012.

I do not hate Obama, but I hate the fact that I had to paint this picture. Has the painting gone too far? I knew when I did this that most Obama supporters would reject what I have done. But as a Conservative, I’m fed up with the corruption in Washington. And I’m sick of the political correctness that has derailed our country!

My art is an expression of the times in which I live and people will know how Jon McNaughton felt about being alive in America in 2012.

Take the Challenge! If you still choose Obama, congratulations…you’re a part of the Obamanation.

What Did You Do to Save the Country?

One day our grandchildren may ask us this question. Will we have an answer that will make us and them proud or will we have to sit silent knowing we stood silent when it was time to speak or remained passive when it was time for action? Now is the time for all believers in limited government to stand up and be counted. Now is the time for all who believe, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” to remember “That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

The coming mid-term elections may well be the most important in our lifetime. America faces a crisis as profound as the Revolution and as divisive as the Civil War. This has been brought on by the Progressives who seek to fundamentally transform America through evolutionary means. Incrementally, one entitlement program, one regulation, and one tax rate increase at a time, these Evolutionaries have used class warfare, activist judges, a politically-correct education system, and a complicit media to create a dependent constituency. They’ve constructed a matrix of sports addiction, celebrity worship, and recreational prescription medicine that makes the bread and circuses of Rome appear as crude as they were effective. Welcome to the Brave New World.

In 2008 the Progressives achieved what the media called a “Veto Proof” majority in both houses. This was typical of the Progressive-controlled media’s spin. With a fellow Progressive holding court in the White House there was no chance the long cherished dreams of national health care, massive interference in the economy, and expansion of the bureaucracy would be vetoed. The description of the majorities should have been filibuster-proof meaning there was no way for the minority party to thwart the will of the majority. Even when the Democrats lost their 60th seat in the Senate with the addition of the Progressive Republicans, they still had a filibuster-proof majority. The only reason they have not achieved more of their agenda such as amnesty for illegal immigrants is that members of their own party have balked at a complete surrender of our heritage.

Those who wish to stop the mad rush into the arms of an all embracing Federal Government must register! They must vote! They must do all they can to influence anyone and everyone to elect a true veto proof majority with the power and the will to reverse the slide into insolvency, which will trigger either a default upon our overwhelming debt or a collapse of our economy. Either of which opens the door for the current administration to impose their statist solutions irrevocably altering the nature of the United States. The name will remain the same but let no illusions of normalcy cloud your sight; this will be a new nation, the Obamanation.

In the coming election it is imperative that those who wish to reverse course send a veto- proof majority to Washington or President Obama will block every attempt to return to the traditional American mode of limited-government. And even if this happens the newly awakened Patriots must realize their victory will energize the portion of the country desiring a European-style welfare state. They must realize just as Truman in 1948 ran against the “Do-nothing Congress” more than against Tom Dewey and Clinton in 1996 ran against the “Mean-spirited” Congress more than against Bob Dole, in 2012 Mr. Obama will run against the “Tea Party” Congress more than against any opponent the Republicans might nominate.

The Town Hall meltdowns of 2009 and the Tea Party phenomenon of 2010 have surged across America as no spontaneous movement has in many years. The energy and enthusiasm of this grassroots explosion has rocked primaries from Coast-to-Coast. The political establishment in both parties are bracing for a tsunami of popular indignation at the ballot-box. However, if the vote does not do more than just rock the House, if it does not also capture the Senate, the Democratic Majority Leader will lead well disciplined troops in blocking every move the Conservatives make, and the media will hang the ensuing deadlock squarely around the neck of the Tea Party.

To make sure that the rising Tea Party Samson successfully pulls down both the House and the Senate pillars of the Temple of Progressivism, the novice Conservative political activists need to understand voting is not enough. We need to exert every ounce of influence among friends, neighbors, and family to bring out an historic vote. We should stand ready to drive people to the polls, work the polls, do anything we can to plant the flag of Liberty once again in the capital of the Land of the Free and the home of the Brave.

Turning to the Word of God we’re counseled, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Our Founders declared, when tyranny raises it head, when a government founded to ensure the rights of citizens begins to trample upon those rights their descendants should remember, “That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness.”

As peaceful citizens let those who love Liberty use their guaranteed rights to write, speak, assemble, and vote to preserve what we’ve been given for our children and our grandchildren. Let every politician know, whether they wish us well or ill, that “we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” If we will do this, if now that it’s our time upon the stage we’ll take a stand beside the Founders, the Framers, and the Greatest Generation when our children or grandchildren ask us, “What did you do to save the country?” we will be able to say more than,, “I didn’t notice what was going on,” or “I couldn’t find the remote.”
