Father,
As we begin a new year in America, it is time
For us to take a good hard look at ourselves—
An assessment that is real, honest, and true about
Who we really are and how strong our commitment is
To seek Your leadership about moving forward.
Will we have the courage to stand strong for You,
For Your Truth, for Your Justice, and for Your ways,
Or will we simply be another nameless, faceless
“Me Too” generation that embraces the ways
Of the Laodiceans that were neither hot nor cold?
As we discover more about the corruption that engulfs us,
We ask where are Your mighty men—Your men of old,
Those whose only desire was to serve from a willing heart—
Never for sordid gain or to exploit the helpless and weak.
Why are men like these missing from our public life?
Where are the virtuous women—the women of integrity—
Those who would rather die than be dishonorable?
Why do we have to settle for representation that can do
Nothing more than lead by being self-serving and shady?
Why do we have to settle for miscreants who seek
Wisdom from polls, rather than from Your Word?
 
Father, we admit and acknowledge to You today
That we have been remiss in our duty as citizens.
We have deferred and allowed scoundrels to lead us,
Instead of insisting upon leadership that is impeccable.
There are many honest men and women in America—
Those who champion Your Name and Your precepts.
Their numbers are legion, but we need Your Holy Spirit
To put it in their hearts to come forward and uphold all
That is right, just, and true about our great nation.
This is why we come before You today. On bended knee,
On behalf of the great nation we love, honor, and cherish,
We ask that You raise up a new generation of righteous leaders.
Our goal is to remain a “City on a Hill” for the world to see
And to emulate, but we can never remain the home of the free
And the land of the brave, simply by having good leaders.
It is also up to us—Your people, those who are called
By Your Name to be strong, active, and courageous. As we
Begin a New Year, let me be one of those who remains
Faithful and true to You, regardless of what it costs.
This is what I want for my life and why I make a commitment
To You today, to be loyal, trustworthy, and devoted to You
And to my country that I love so much,
Amen

SALT & LIGHT VI: In America, until quite recently, the repudiation of Christianity has been more subtle. In today’s world, it has become unacceptable to have a literal belief in what God has declared to be true in the Scriptures. To do so is to admit you are an ignorant, anachronistic, uninformed, and unscientific person.
 
To maintain biblical beliefs as being real and legitimate invites contempt and ridicule, especially from the Progressive Left. Their castigation can be very intimidating and quite unpleasant. By being consistently mocked, Christians have become marginalized in our society. Because our worldview contradicts what is proclaimed by the cultural values of nearly every person in the media, academic world, and the entertainment industry, we have been deemed to be deplorable and irredeemable.
 
According to this generation’s Progressive viewpoint, God, if He really does exist, is in everything and everybody. All avenues lead to Him, regardless of what they might be. He is universally accepting of everybody, whether you believe in Him or not.
 
Regardless of what you believe or what you do, it is irrelevant, according to Progressives. Although many question the existence of God, some others have redefined God to be whatever you want him or her to be.
 
Being tolerant of what others believe is the central tenet of America’s cultural religion, coupled with militantly believing in climate change. The only mortal sin for a Progressive is to accept and maintain a Christian belief system. To Progressives, our perspective is intolerable. To believe in God’s truth, as revealed in the Scriptures, is considered to be uninformed and out of touch with reality. It’s as simple as that, and because of our ignorance, we deserve the castigation we receive for adhering to such nonsense.

SALT & LIGHT IV: To be an effective witness, which is measured by how we live our lives and not by the religious rhetoric we proclaim to be true, we must have our personal belief system operating congruently with that of the Holy Spirit. There is no other way to be fruitful—not with positive fruit anyway.

 
Simply saying something is true, without living it, creates a meaningless existence. Plus, it comes across as being hypocritical and disingenuous. There’s a good reason for this; it is being hypocritical and disingenuous, and it is the specific reason why so many non-believers find Christianity unattractive.
Each of us has a role to play. For you to be the person you want to be tomorrow, you must change your thinking today. If you change your thinking—your view of reality—your actions will follow. This certainly has been my experience, and I can tell you will enjoy your life much more than you currently do.
 
It’s not the other way around. By and large, most of what Christians are being taught is backwards. The focus is on behavior, not on correct thinking. This is why the fruit of most sermons is actually counterproductive.
 
For real change to occur, our perception of reality is what must be transformed. If this happens, then our behaviors will follow. In your heart, I hope you realize this is true.

COMMON SENSE: Do you wonder why President Trump was able to defeat ISIS in one year, when President Obama was unable to do so in six years? There are many reasons, but these are the three key ones:
 
1. President Trump provided the objective—to destroy ISIS completely—but then he allowed our capable military leaders to accomplish the goal. Trump, unlike Obama, did not micromanage the war effort from the White House. Like Jimmy Carter, another incompetent President, Obama made military decisions that he had no business making, and it impacted our war effort adversely.
 
2. President Trump, unlike Barack Obama, did not hamstring our military by insisting upon “Rules of Engagement” that made it difficult to defeat ISIS. Obama put our troops into harm’s way but refused to allow them to do what was necessary to get the job done.
 
3. Because of the first and second reasons, which undermined morale, things improved dramatically once Trump became Commander-in-Chief. Our troops knew he had their back, which they also knew Barack Obama never did.
 
Today, ISIS has less than 1,000 troops still fighting—down from 45,000 when Trump took office. What happened to them? Most of these Muslim Radicals are dead, and the rest are in hiding. ISIS only has control of 2% of the land they held during Obama’s Presidency. Since the media will not tell you about this great accomplishment, I thought I would.

COMMON SENSE—My theory: In 1990, the population of the Soviet Union was 293 million, and their GDP was $7.77 trillion. At that time, our population was 249 million, and our GDP was $6 trillion. Then, because of President Reagan’s policies, the Soviet Union collapsed, and everything changed. Now, the population of Russia is 146 million, and their GDP is $1.33 trillion, which is approximately the same as Canada’s and a little less than Italy and Indonesia. Our population is currently about 326 million, and our GDP $19 trillion.
 
Here’s the point. In just over a quarter of a century, our economy, which wasn’t as large as the Soviet Union’s, is now more than fourteen times larger than Russia’s, and our population is more than twice as large. In 1990, the Soviet Union was our equal in everything, while in 2017, Russia cannot compete with us in anything, except for nuclear weapons.
 
So, if you were Vladimir Putin and you wanted to restore Russia to greatness, how would you do it, especially since you couldn’t compete economically or by your nation’s size? You would leverage your nuclear capability, where you are competitive, but you wouldn’t want to start a thermonuclear war, where everybody loses. Instead, all you would want to do is dominate the world with your nuclear capability, which would force the USA to play by your rules. This alone would restore Russia to greatness, which is your goal.
 
But how would you go about dominating the USA? You could do it by securing the world’s uranium supply—the essential ingredient necessary to make nuclear weapons. To accomplish your task, you would need to obtain America’s supply of uranium, which we would never relinquish willingly. This means you would need someone on the inside to get America’s uranium—someone you could corrupt.
 
Then, along comes Hillary Clinton. With her Uranium One deal, she allowed 20% of America’s uranium to be sold to Russian companies. As our Secretary of State, why would she do this? What would be in it for her? Just follow the money. Her foundation received $145 million from Russians. That’s a hunk of change, but that’s just part of what she received. I suspect here is a lot more.
 
Unfortunately for Hillary, and others corrupted by this scheme, it’s all unraveling, but it’s convoluted and confusing for most to follow. This is why I have given you my theory about how this plot to destroy the USA came about, and where the real Russian collusion exists.

COMMON SENSE: According to the Washington Post, Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe plans to retire at age 49 in March, just as soon as he is eligible for his full pension. To Conservatives, this may seem like good news, but it is not good enough. He should be fired and perhaps even charged with multiple felonies relating to his role in trying to undermine Trump’s Presidency fraudulently.
 
At bare minimum, the news of his departure indicated that McCabe realizes numerous Congressional investigations are getting near the truth about this loathsome swamp creature’s corruption. Personally, I want to see him indicted. How about you?

Our Gracious God and Loving Heavenly Father,
For simply wanting to do the right thing for America,
Christians across our land have been ridiculed, belittled,
Scolded, and held in continuous contempt by those who
Hold themselves above us. In the haughtiness of
Their arrogance, they are devoid of a moral compass
or of a sense of right and wrong. Nevertheless, in the loftiness
Of their self-deception, they consider themselves to be
Morally superior, but they are not. They are the exact opposite.
Instead of being allowed to enjoy the Christmas season,
In the peace and tranquility we want and deserve,
Because of the perverted purposes of Progressivism,
We are held in contempt for worshiping You, Your Son,
And for simply believing in the values that we have cherished.
These are the values that have made us the envy of the world,
Regardless of how the Progressives have revised our history
To make us appear to be people we have never been.

In their hearts, the Progressives loathe our nation passionately.
In their hatred for You, Father, they have refused to give You
The honor and respect You deserve for making our nation
The greatest land on earth. Instead, they teach our youth
That it is dishonorable to be an Americans or to celebrate
All that we have achieved since the days of the Puritans.
In spite of all they say and do to silence the vast multitude
Of Americans who love You and champion Your righteousness,
We know who we are, and we keenly aware that every aspect
Of our nation’s greatness comes from the bounty that
You have given us to prosper for multiplied generations.
Because we know this and have no doubt that we owe
Every blessing we have to You, we want to acknowledge
Our gratitude to You this day, as we honor the birth
Of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who is our blessed Redeemer,
Amen.

—Jack Watts​
