Kiss the Son

By Angela Wittman

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. (Psalm 2:12, KJV)

Dear Friends,

This essay is about laying a good, solid Christian foundation for our nation. Many of you may believe that we already have a good Christian foundation in America, and the proof is found in our national Constitution, which was written by our Founding Fathers. You may have prayed for our national leaders to follow it, in order for "We the People" to be put back in charge of America. Perhaps you have thought that if only our liberties were still protected, and our rights secured, we would once more be the shining city upon a hill for the whole world to see. As individuals we would once more be independent and unjust laws would no longer violate our freedoms. If you have kept copies of articles I have written in the past, you will find these very same beliefs and thoughts expressed in many of them.

We have been a blessed nation, in spite of our failings. I praise God that we are still able to assemble openly, express many of our beliefs, and attend churches of our choice. But, I also tremble with fear when I think of how much liberty we have lost just within my lifetime. So, dear friends, it is with great humility, and Godly fear that I remind you who is King of all the nations, including our own: Jesus Christ.

The second Psalm tells us:

1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. 5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. 10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

I submit to you that America is not serving the LORD, and has not since our Constitution was written in 1787. There is one glaring omission from this founding document: Jesus Christ. Some may say that when the Founding Fathers signed it, they included the words "Year of our Lord," and this is an acknowledgement of Christ. This reference to our Lord may be considered an acknowledgment of sorts, but in today's pagan culture, we need an explicit acknowledgment of Lord Jesus Christ.

There is an organization which has been steadily, and most diligently working toward a Constitutional amendment which would acknowledge Christ since 1864: The National Reform Association, (URL: I invite you to read the articles posted on their website, as I believe they have a solution for what ails America:

We need Jesus, and we need Him badly:

Our children are killing each other, while their mothers kill their unwanted children, in and out of the womb; divorce has now become the norm, and marriage "until death do us part" has become a thing of the past. Lying and stealing in the workplace has become common, with many churchgoers participating. The ill and infirmed has become a nuisance, and we no longer protect their right to live, instead we turn the other way, and allow their murder while calling it "mercy." Life is so cheap; we can make humans for experimentation so the rich may live longer lives on earth.

America, our heart has become cold, hard, calloused, and almost dead. Our conscience has become seared; our souls are lean, and our flesh is obese. God has blessed us in spite of our shame; the foundation we are built upon is cracked, flawed and giving way.

We must turn to Jesus Christ through national repentance, and we must 'Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye [we] perish from the way.' Then, dear friends, we will find that 'Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.'

Let's put our trust in Him today. Amen.

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ

Alzheimer's Disease, Adultery and God's Word

By Angela Wittman "When B. and I realized what we're dealing with and she understood what the situation is, she said to me… 'I know what I have. I know where it's gonna take me. Tell the story. Tell the truth,'" Gasby recounted.  In January, he spoke that truth — and let cameras into his home. It's a home he shares with his wife and his girlfriend, Alex Lerner, who also has a bedroom in the house and helps with B.'s care.  Yesterday morning I happened to catch the segment  Falling in love while caring for your spouse with Alzheimer's disease   that aired on CBS This Morning. . I watched in amazement as two men whose wives had Alzheimer's Disease (one wife is now deceased) openly discussed having adulterous relationships with other women. Is this now to become a new norm? These men and women feel they shouldn't be judged, and shockingly the news anchors interviewing them seemed to agree. My father has Alzheimer's Disease and w
