Honor those who fought for Liberty against Tyranny

Under king George III and the British Parliament, the American colonists lost their rights as Englishmen which had been guaranteed to their fathers in earlier charters.  Many colonists suffered as a result.

Search and seizure of private papers and property, stationing of troops in private homes (putting the women at risk of rape) imprisonment without trial by jury (guilty until proven innocent) and taxation without representation were all problems faced by the colonists.

We should be thankful for those who fought for liberty against tyranny.  Had they not done so, we might now have been enslaved to some cruel tyrant.

We might have no certainty of life, nor of liberty.  Tyrants often have their "brown shirts" drag innocent people from their homes in the middle of the night.  Their secret police often falsely accuse people of crimes they did not commit.

These monsters often torture defenseless individuals to obtain a confession.  Then, they either murder, or send their victims off to a life of slavery in concentration camps or state-run farms and factories.  Many are sexually abused to please their evil masters.

These poor people have no right to a fair trial or appeal to a higher authority.  Many times, they are never heard from again.  This is the sad, well-documented truth, not only of Communism, but also of Nazism, Islam and the Roman Catholic Inquisition.

Throughout American history, there have been brave men who fought against tyranny.  They did it to first earn, and later to maintain, the liberty granted us by God and codified in our United States Constitution with its Bill of Rights.

The Bill of Rights was based on the Biblical teaching that man is made in the image of God.  As such, his life is something of value.  God has granted men the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (within the bounds of the Ten Commandments).

God has also granted men the right to work and own private property.  This can be seen in the eighth commandment "Thou shalt not steal".  If private property were eliminated (as in Communism) then the Bible prohibition against stealing would be meaningless.

We need to honor those men who fought for liberty against tyranny, many of whom lost their own lives on the battlefield.  Others were severely wounded.  Some were blinded, others crippled, others lost one or more limbs, internal organs and/or private parts.

Still others were struck by diseases such as malaria and yellow fever.  Not a few were made permanently ill by mustard gas, radiation, dioxin exposure (such as Agent Orange) and other hazards.  Many have lost their hearing from explosions in combat.

The stress of combat has taken a toll on many of these veterans in the form of long separation from their families.  Some suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome with its many sad results.  Others are able to overcome this stress through faith in Christ.

In any case, we need to give some serious thought as to how we might also pay respect to those who fought for liberty against tyranny.  One way is to set aside days to do so, such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day—not just as a day off from work, but as a genuine day of Thanksgiving to God for deliverance from tyranny through these men.

Another way is to visit wounded and sick veterans, and to help support them in their time of need.  Still another way is to preserve their accounts of what combat was like for them, and why they were willing to do what they did to fight for liberty against tyranny.

Tulip Gems is a Calvinistic Baptist web site that honors Jesus Christ and provides a free Hyperinflation Survival Guide.  We offer free Bible Articles on several subjects, including Bible Nutrition , Creation Science versus Evolution Passover , The Great Commission and Tulip Calvinism

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
