The Price of Freedom

The Price of Freedom

For the introduction to our July 2024 prayer letter, I’m returning to what we shared for July 2013. Why? Because “repetition is the mother of learning” – and there are some things we know, but also need to be reminded of. The apostle Peter wrote: “Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder, since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.” 2 Peter 1:12-15 (ESV)

“On the 4th of July I heard a stimulating and challenging message by Michael Youssef on the radio, which sparked this prayer in my heart:

O Lord, our founding fathers who signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Some of them did pay with their lives, some of them saw their sons slaughtered on the battlefields of the Revolutionary War, and most of them did lose their fortunes and their property because they would not sacrifice their sacred honor. Many witnessed their houses and property burned by the enemy in spite, for the stand they took, but stand they did! They stood for truth and liberty. Since that fearful time and those fateful battles, multitudes of American bodies lie buried, often on foreign fields – bodies of those who also paid the ultimate price to protect the liberty we now enjoy. Remind us often, Lord, of the price they paid that we might be free. Remind us that freedom is not free. Remind us that the price of freedom is vigilance and responsibility as we face the enemies of our freedom, both those on the outside of our borders and those, who like termites, are eating away our freedoms from inside our government, educational, scientific, and media institutions. O Lord, give us courage to stand against the enemies of truth, righteousness, and liberty with the strength and courage of our forefathers. And please protect us from another bloody revolutionary war or civil war! (What is civil about war, anyway?) Most of all, O Lord, remind us of the ultimate price Jesus paid for our freedom from sin – it’s penalty, its power, and finally, its presence. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! In the Name above all names, Jesus. Rick

“Should Christians be ‘Dabbling’ in Politics?”

“Some readers may already be offended with me because they cling strongly to the opinion that Christians should not get involved in politics – and certainly a Christian leader should not mention political issues from the pulpit nor write about these issues in a publication. It is my purpose in this section to refute this lie that has kept millions of Christians silent while our nation is sinking in sin, succumbing to sexual lies, and pandering to political propaganda. The fact is that we are mandated by Almighty God to be involved in order to speak truth to our decadent, depraved culture about politics and all other realms. Those of us who speak out on political issues are not the ones being unfaithful to our calling as Christians, but those keeping silent are.” (From our book, More than Conquerors in Cultural Clashes.)

Has God Taken His Hand of Protection off America?

Excerpts from the First Quarter Report from Issues in Education in 2021. Notice how pertinent and potent these comments are for us in 2024!

“Has America Already Been Conquered?”

“Have we committed suicide by electing this Marxist government? How has our nation been transformed so radically in such a short time? It’s as if we were invaded and conquered. Or have we committed suicide?

With the promotion of homosexuality and abortion around the world, what more does God need to judge the US? President Biden’s Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has ordered that ALL American embassies and consulates around the world fly rainbow flags in solidarity with the gay agenda. That’s a slap in the face of God! Rep. Cleaver also prayed, ‘Amen and awoman.’ That is crazy! But to promote inclusion and diversity and avoid male/female genders, he said ‘a-woman.’

Taking A Courageous Stand

Has America been conquered? We’ve raised generations on socialism and now have a Marxist government! Pastor Jack Hibbs, said, ‘The Democrat rule in D.C. will use their unchecked power to lead our populace into becoming a compliant populace reducing us to a global state,’ Pastor Erwin Lutzer, author of We Will Not Be Silenced – Responding to Our Culture’s Assault on Christianity, said, ‘Christians will face their greatest challenges now that the godless Left is in charge of the White House, House, and Senate. They will try to take away religious freedom! They will punish those who refuse to see government as god. The Left wants Christians to be harassed, threatened, and silenced. That’s why the Bible calls the last days perilous!’ Pastor Erwin Lutzer said, ‘While our whole culture has been fundamentally transformed, the Church has remained silent on social issues! That too many of America’s church leaders have sat on the sidelines for the heart and soul for America. Many would not even stand up for religious liberty! By their silence, they are telling their congregation that social issues are unimportant to God!’

Make the Truth look like a lie and make the lie look like the truth.

‘The Left’s utopian dream for America is to destroy it so a new America will emerge – one that’s free of poverty, racism and white supremacy.’ Destroy it to rebuild it? What a contradiction. It’s like George Orwell’s book 1984 that uses opposites to brainwash the people so that the ‘Party’ is able to force its subjects to accept anything it decrees, even if it is entirely illogical—for instance, the Ministry of Truth is in charge of doctoring history books to reflect the Party’s ideology. The major news media isn’t really news but propaganda chosen by the radical left.

Propaganda is an attempt to change reality so you believe their lies.

Imagine the fear the British people felt as the Nazi war machine turned their guns toward England! Imagine the despair, the dread, that Hitler was unstoppable, that resistance would be futile. Many were shouting, ‘Surrender!” as bombs devastated entire city blocks, and bridges fell, as the blitzkrieg and sirens shrieked night after night. But Churchill refused to surrender or compromise. He said, ‘Wars are not won by evacuations.’ ‘Surrender is not an option if you plan to win a war.That’s great!! Churchill told England that they had to face Hitler. Then he said, ‘I can’t promise you a fast victory but blood sweat and tears. When Hitler’s bunker was being pounded into the earth in April of 1945, Churchill’s defiance and vision were fulfilled. COURAGE! Not Cowardice! Silence has not been a winning strategy for the church. What we’re calling for is for the Church to stand up courageously against this assault; to replace complacency with courage!

Reagan said, ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.’ If we don’t protect our freedom, we will have to apologetically tell our grandchildren what it was like to live in a free nation.

Nearly half of all millennials believe ‘HATEspeech should be banned. But what is hate speech? Who determines what’s hate speech? The left says, ‘Censoring conservative or Christian speech is not censorship but liberation of opposed groups like the LGBT.’ The Apostles were forbidden from preaching in the name of Jesus upon penalty of death, but they did anyway saying, ‘We must obey God rather than man.

The authentic gospel is not a product to be sold but a Savior to be served!

Jesus said, ‘Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.’ That means most will be lost and only a few, a remnant called ‘the elect’ will be saved. Jesus wants followers who are red hot…”

“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:1-8 (ESV)

“Bonhoeffer’s Dedication to Christ”

“Professor Stephen Nichols, professor at Lancaster Bible College and the author of Bonhoeffer – On the Christian Life, From The Cross, For The World, sees parallels between Germany in Bonhoeffer’s day and our society today and what it means to be a true disciple. Nichols wrote:

‘Brilliant young German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, author of The Cost of Discipleship, challenged Hitler and the submissive, apostate German Church that actually blessed the Third Reich. In 1939, he spent a month in New York City, again. The plan was for him to safely sit out the war. But as soon as Bonhoeffer stepped off the ship in New York City, he thought, how could he help rebuild the German church if he had abandoned it in its darkest hour?

Because Bonhoeffer lived a Cross centered life, he had an eternal perspective, thus he confidently returned to Germany. Costly discipleship, as opposed to ‘cheap grace,’ means following Christ even to face certain death in Germany. Imagine Dietrich laying on the floor of the Nazi prison with bombs exploding, windows bursting, bottles and books crashing down, and there he is in deep prayer. Prayer sustained him in his darkest hour. Prayer is our lifeline to God. He wrote, ‘Loving your enemies demands more strength than a natural person can muster. God gives us the power to love our enemies.’

That kind of power doesn’t conform to the world but transforms the world.

On April 9th, 1945, while Hitler was eating lunch, Adolph gave the direct order to hang Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was hanged only days before the American liberation. The last words of the brilliant and courageous 39-year-old were ‘This is the end for me, the beginning of life.’ Other Bonhoeffer quotes: ‘Silence in the face of evil is itself evil.’ ‘Not to speak is to speak!’ ‘Not to act is to act.’ ‘Salvation is free but discipleship will cost you your life.’ ‘Your life as a Christian should make unbelievers question their disbelief.’ ‘When Christ calls a man, he bids him to come and die.’ ‘Christianity without discipleship is Christianity without Christ!’ ‘The devil doesn’t fill us with hatred for God, but forgetfulness of God.’” (End of the quotations from Issues in Education, 2021)

Concerning Provision, Pride, Perversion, Promises

Genesis 6:5-9 says, “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the Lord said, ‘I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.’ But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.” (ESV)

Genesis 6:12-13 says, “So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. And God said to Noah, ‘The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.’” (NKJV)

For provision for Noah, his sons, and their wives plus all who would in faith believe God’s message and the animals God would spare, God told Noah: “Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch.” Genesis 6:14 (NKJV)


Concerning pride, the Word of God says: “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud. Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord. The wise of heart is called discerning, and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness. Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.” Proverbs 16:18-22 (ESV); “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17 (ESV)


Does it also seem ironic to you that those who have chosen a lifestyle of perversion through homosexuality are proud of perversion and have claimed the month of June as “Pride Month” and have claimed the rainbow as their symbol? Also, they have stolen the word “gay” to describe their perversion? The original meaning of the word “gay” is carefree and happy. I refuse to call gay what God names an abomination. The word gay in this context is a planned propaganda word.  “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22 (ESV) Even though the LGBTQ agenda has aggressively claimed June as Pride Month and recruited many big businesses by infiltration, they are now getting a huge backlash against their agenda by 22 states and some of the big businesses (according to a news report I heard on June 4).


Mankind is prone to break promises, but our faithful God Almighty keeps His promises. In spite of all the turbulence of the massive, worldwide Flood, God protected Noah, his family of believers, and the animals on the ark. “Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained. And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased. Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat… Then the Lord said in His heart, ‘I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:1-4, 21-22 (NKJV)

Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: ‘And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.’ And God said: ‘This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.’ And God said to Noah, ‘This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.’” Genesis 9:8-17 (NKJV)

The rainbow belongs to God, not to proud perversion! There have been many devastating local floods that God has allowed to take place, but God never has and never will bring another worldwide flood! Also, if you are worried by the “threats” of climate change, take another look at Genesis 8:21-22.

Songwriter Thomas Chisholm captured God’s promise perfectly in his song, “Great is Thy Faithfulness:”

“Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above.

Join with all nature in manifold witness,

To thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Great is Thy faithfulness,

Great is Thy faithfulness,

Morning by morning, new mercies I see.

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided,

Great is Thy faithfulness,

Lord, unto me.”

Is that all that God wants us to know and remember about the Flood? Hardly! Consider what He inspired the apostle Peter to write for us to remember, and never forget: “Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.’ For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:1-18 (NKJV)

Note: I realize that some of what I share in this prayer letter may seem too strong or blunt. If so, I’m sorry to offend, but my purpose is to wake up and warn our infiltrated, corrupted culture that we are in grave danger. If you have been reading the Bible, you may have noticed that God’s Old Testament prophets as well as Jesus, His apostles, and New Testament prophets were at times very clear, stark, and blunt about their warnings against evil cultural practices. Have you noticed that Jesus was very strong and blunt with the perpetrators, then clear but gentle and forgiving with their victims (those who believed their lies and were entrapped by them)? I hope to imitate Jesus – I am subject to blunders too often! Question—does blunt confrontation ever produce good results? Good question! Here are a couple of Biblical examples: First, Jesus, after several more moderate confrontations with the scribes, Pharisees, and priests openly and bluntly blasted them in no uncertain terms in Matthew 23! Later, after Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, Acts 6:7 says, “Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith” (NKJV). Second, now consider this portion of Scripture: “Now when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-Jesus, who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, ‘O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now, indeed, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.’ And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord.” Acts 13:6-12 (NKJV) It does not say that Elymas was converted, but the proconsul was!

From Our Mailbox

“One step at a time is all that I need,

To serve the Lord Jesus in word and in deed.

I need not worry ‘bout what lies ahead.

I might see some things that would cause me to dread.

But if I keep looking to Jesus my King,

I can take each step that the journey does bring.

One step at a time I will live out my days,

Faithfully serving and bringing God praise.

One step at a time I will finish the race,

‘Till at last I see Jesus, my Lord, face to face.”

“Rick and Della, in my humble opinion I think your June 2024 Prayer Letter may just be the best one you have ever published. Every article or/and quotation had something that needed to be said, read, and heeded. ‘The pen is mightier than the sword.’ ‘My tongue is the pen of a ready writer’ (Psalm 45:1 NKJV). May God continue to bless you as you speak with your tongue and write the ‘the pen of a ready writer.’ Other translations say, ‘a ready scribe,’ or ‘a skillful writer.’ The Contemporary English Version (CEV) says, ‘I will use my voice as a writer would use pen and ink.’ Victor Knowles, Founder/President Peace on Earth Ministries”

“One of the hallmarks of our apostate age is that the ‘Malum in se’ laws are treated like arbitrary human rules that can and are ignored in favor of increasingly more immoral ‘Malum prohibidum’ laws that are treated as moral imperatives. In biblical terms, they call good evil and evil good (Isaiah 5:20). The murder of unborn babies isn’t wrong and evil under this revisionist jurisprudence but instead trespassing or praying within so many feet of an abortuary is considered evil and severely punished. The crime of sodomy, a capital offense in biblical law, is today the most promoted and protected form of conduct in our society – not just in America but in every country of the world where we still have the power to enforce our will and ‘values.’” – Scott Lively, The Lively Letter 8/15/23

“Laus Deo”

On the aluminum cap atop the Washington Monument in Washington DC are two words: Laus Deo. No one can see these words. In fact, most visitors to the monument have no idea they are even there and… for that matter … probably could care less!

But there they are … 555 feet, 5.125 inches high … perched atop the monument to the father of our nation … overlooking the 69 square miles which comprise the District of Columbia … capital of the United States of America.

Laus Deo! Two seemingly insignificant, unnoticed words …out of sight and, one might think, out of mind … but very meaningfully placed at the highest point over what is the most powerful city in the world.  And what might those two words … comprised of just four syllables and only seven letters. mean? Very simply … “Praise be to God!”

Though construction of this giant obelisk began in 1848 when James Polk was President of the United States, it was not until 1888 that the monument was inaugurated and opened to the public. It took twenty-five years to finally cap the memorial with the tribute Laus Deo! Praise be to God!

From atop this magnificent granite and marble structure … a visitor can take in the beautiful panoramic view of the city with its division into four major segments. And from that vantage point one can also easily see the original plan of the designer, Pierre Charles L’Enfant. A perfect cross imposed upon the landscape … with the White House to the north … the Jefferson Memorial to the south … the Capitol to the east … and the Lincoln Memorial to the west. A cross … you say?

How interesting! And … no doubt … intended to carry a meaning for those who bother to notice. Praise be to God! Within the monument itself are 898 steps and 50 landings. As one climbs the steps and pauses at the landings the memorial stones share a message. On the 12th Landing is a prayer offered by the City of Baltimore; on the 20th is a memorial presented by some Chinese Christians; on the 24th a presentation made by Sunday School children from New York and Philadelphia quoting Proverbs 10:7, Luke 18:16 and Proverbs 22:6. Praise be to God!

When the cornerstone of the Washington Monument was laid on July 4th, 1848, deposited within it were many items including the Holy Bible presented by the Bible Society. Praise be to God! Such was the discipline, the moral direction, the spiritual mood given by the founder and first President of our unique democracy …“one nation, under God.”

I am awed by Washington’s prayer for America. Have you never read it? Well now is your opportunity … read on!

“Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large.” “And finally, that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”  Laus Deo!

As you might have guessed, I kind of like the idea that our Pledge of Allegiance includes the phrase “under God.” It is clear when one studies the history of our great nation that Washington’s America was one of the few countries in all the world established under the guidance, direction, and banner of Almighty God, to whom was given all praise, honor and worship by the great men who formed and fashioned her pivotal foundations. And … when one stops to observe the inscriptions found in public places all over our nation’s capitol, one will easily find the signature of God.

We are a nation under God!!!  Laus Deo!!!  Praise be to God!!!

“Unless the Lord builds the house its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”  (Psalm 127: 1)
