FROM D. JAMES KENNEDY
MINISTRIES THIS IS KENNEDY CLASSICS ♪ WELCOME TO KENNEDY CLASSICS HELLO, I’M FRANK WRIGHT. WELCOME BACK TO
KENNEDY CLASSICS, A MEDIA OUTREACH OF
D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO VISIT
OUR MINISTRY WEBSITE WHERE YOU CAN FIND A TERRIFIC
COLLECTION OF FREE DIGITAL, AUDIO, VIDEO,
AND PRINT RESOURCES. IT’S ALL AVAILABLE AT: PERHAPS THE MOST MEMORABLE
WORDS SPOKEN IN THE HISTORY OF THE US SPACE FLIGHT
CAME FROM NEAL ARMSTRONG AS HE STOOD ON A LADDER
JUST A FEW FEET ABOVE THE SURFACE OF THE MOON: “THAT’S
ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR
MANKIND.” HE SAID. THOSE WORDS DECLAIMED A
HUMAN AND TECHNOLOGICAL TRIUMPH FOR THE AGES. YET THE SECOND MOST
MEMORABLE WORDS FROM THE US SPACE PROGRAM DID NOT
HAVE THE RING OF TRIUMPH. THEY WERE THESE: “HOUSTON,
WE HAVE A PROBLEM.” WITH THIS ALARMING
STATEMENT, COMMANDER JAMES LOVELL
ANNOUNCED THE ONSET OF A LIFE AND DEATH STRUGGLE
THAT WOULD PLAY OUT OVER THE NEXT FOUR DAYS, AS
A CRIPPLED APOLLO 13 SPACECRAFT JOURNEYED
TO THE MOON AND BACK. WELL, IT IS NOT TOO MUCH
TO SAY IN OUR DAY THAT WE TOO HAVE A PROBLEM. WE ARE A PEOPLE
CRIPPLED BY SIN, ENGAGED IN A LIFE
AND DEATH STRUGGLE, ON A SOJOURN THROUGH A
WORLD SEEMINGLY FLEEING HEADLONG AWAY FROM THE
ONLY ONE WHO CAN SAVE US. THAT IS OUR DIAGNOSIS,
BUT YOU MIGHT ASK: WHAT IS THE PRESCRIPTION? IS THERE A CURE? HERE IS DR. D. JAMES
KENNEDY WITH HIS MESSAGE: “THE DISEASE OF GODLESSNESS.” AND NOW MAY WE HEAR THE
WORD OF GOD AS IT’S FOUND IN THE BOOK OF PSALMS,
PSALMS 33 BEGINNING WITH VERSE 1. AND MAY GOD SPEAK TO OUR
HEARTS AND MINDS TODAY THROUGH THIS PORTION OF
HIS HOLY WORD AND MAY HIS NAME EVER BE PRAISED. AMEN. WOODROW WILSON SAID,
“AMERICANS NO LONGER REMEMBER WHAT WE
WERE; AND THEREFORE, THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE
ARE AND CONSEQUENTLY THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE
ARE TRYING TO DO.” YOU REMEMBER
DR. PAUL VITZ, A PROFESSOR AT NEW
YORK UNIVERSITY, WHO HEADED UP A
PRESIDENTIALLY-APPOINTED BLUE RIBBON COMMITTEE IN
THE MIDDLE OF THE ’80S TO EXAMINE ALL OF THE HISTORY
AND SOCIAL STUDIES TEXTBOOKS USED IN
OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. AND THAT COMMITTEE
REPORTED THAT VIRTUALLY EVERY MENTION OF THE
CHRISTIAN FOUNDATIONS OF AMERICA HAS BEEN
EXPURGATED FROM OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL TEXTS. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE
WRITER OF THESE TEXTBOOKS, THE WRITERS, THE EDITORS,
AND THE PUBLISHERS SEEM TO HAVE A POSITIVE PHOBIA
AGAINST CHRISTIANITY. THAT, INDEED, IS TRAGIC
THAT AMERICA IS SUFFERING FROM AN INFLICTED
AMNESIA, AND TRULY, THEY DO NOT KNOW WHO
WE WERE YESTERDAY, OR WHAT WE ARE
SUPPOSED TO BE TODAY, NOR EVEN WHAT WE
ARE TRYING TO DO. NOW, FOR SOME OF YOU THAT
MAY NOT HAVE BEEN RELIEVED OF THAT AMNESIA, LET ME
REMIND YOU OF WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE ARE
SUPPOSED TO BE DOING. WHO ARE WE? YOU MAY RECALL
THAT IN 1892, IN THE FAMED
TRINITY DECISION, THE SUPREME COURT OF THE
UNITED STATES HAD SPENT TEN YEARS, NOW THEY GIVE A
HALF HOUR TO EACH SIDE TO PRESENT THEIR CASE, THEY
SPENT TEN YEARS EXAMINING THOUSANDS OF MANUSCRIPTS
AND DOCUMENTS RELATING TO EVERY SINGLE ASPECT OF THE
FOUNDING OF THIS COUNTRY. AND THEN RULED
9-0, UNANIMOUSLY, THAT THESE WERE AN
ABUNDANCE OF HISTORICAL EVIDENCE THAT DECLARED
THAT THIS IS A RELIGIOUS COUNTRY: “THIS IS A
CHRISTIAN NATION.” SUPREME COURT OF
THE UNITED STATES, UNANIMOUS DECISION,
TRINITY CASE, 1892. THAT IS WHO WE WERE. AND WHAT WERE
WE HERE TO DO? WELL DO YOU REMEMBER IN
THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE OF AMERICA, THE
MAYFLOWER COMPACT, THE PILGRIMS SAID THAT WE
CAME TO ESTABLISH THIS COLONY IN THE NORTHERN
PARTS OF VIRGINIA “FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, AND FOR
THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.” AND THEN 23 YEARS
LATER, IN 1643, WHEN ALL OF THE COLONIES
IN NEW ENGLAND GOT TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST
TIME AND WROTE AND SIGNED THE NEW ENGLAND
CONFEDERATION, THEY MADE THIS ASTONISHING
STATEMENT: “THAT WE ALL CAME INTO THESE PARTS OF
AMERICA FOR ONE AND THE SAME END AND AIM, FOR THE
ADVANCEMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.” IS THAT WHAT WE ARE DOING? I’M AFRAID AS A NATION
WE HAVE EXPERIENCED COLLECTIVE HISTORICAL
AMNESIA DIRECTED SPECIFICALLY AT
CHRISTIANITY. INDEED, IF UNCLE SAM, THE
PERSONIFICATION OF OUR COUNTRY, CAME BEFORE
A PHYSICIAN TODAY, I’M AFRAID THAT THE
DIAGNOSIS WOULD BE VERY SERIOUS. IT MIGHT EVEN BE TERMINAL. AMERICA IS SICK-
DANGEROUSLY ILL. UNCLE SAM IS SICK IN THE
HEAD BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN TAUGHT LIES. AND HE DOES NOT KNOW
WHERE HE CAME FROM, HOW HE WAS BROUGHT
UP, OR WHY HE IS HERE. HE IS SICK IN THE STOMACH
BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN CONSUMING A DIET OF
PORNOGRAPHY, VILENESS, TRASH, EVIL OF EVERY KIND,
UNGODLY PHILOSOPHIES, BLASPHEMY, PROFANITY,
EVERY MANNER OF EVIL. HE IS SICK IN HIS HANDS
BECAUSE THEY SEEM COMPELLED TO COMMIT AN
UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF ROBBERIES AND
RAPES AND MURDERS. HE IS SICK IN HIS HEART. THERE IS A SICKNESS UNTO
DEATH UNLESS SOMETHING IS DONE, BECAUSE HIS PASSIONS
ARE TURNED AWAY FROM GOD UNTO ALL MANNER
OF CARNAL LUSTS. YES, MY FRIENDS, THE
PROBLEM IS NOT MERELY THE ECONOMY. SOMEBODY ASKED
ME THIS WEEK, “WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS
DISEASE THAT AMERICA IS SUFFERING FROM?” WELL, LET ME SAY: THE
NAME OF THE DISEASE THAT AMERICA IS DYING FROM
IS “GODLESSNESS.” A GODLESS ELITE HAVE TAKEN
OVER VIRTUALLY EVERY MAJOR INSTITUTION OF THIS COUNTRY,
AND THEY ARE PERVERTING, DISTORTING, AND POISONING
THE BODY POLITIC- THE WHOLE NATURE OF
OUR COUNTRY. THE PROBLEM IS ONE
OF GODLESSNESS, OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, OF
IMMORALITY OF EVERY KIND. IT DOESN’T MATTER
WHERE YOU LOOK, FROM THE WHITE HOUSE
TO THE COURT HOUSE, FROM OUR LEGISLATION TO
OUR JUDICIAL DECREES, FROM OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM
TO OUR MEDIA, EVERYWHERE WE LOOK WE FIND A DE FACTO
GODLESSNESS IN AMERICA. GEORGE WASHINGTON IN HIS
FAREWELL ADDRESS SAID “REASON AND EXPERIENCE
BOTH FORBID US TO EXPECT THAT NATIONAL MORALITY CAN
PREVAIL IN EXCLUSION OF RELIGIOUS PRINCIPLES.” AND JOHN ADAMS, OUR
SECOND PRESIDENT, SAID THE SAME “OUR
CONSTITUTION WAS MADE ONLY FOR A MORAL AND RELIGIOUS
PEOPLE; IT IS WHOLLY INADEQUATE TO THE
GOVERNMENT OF ANY OTHER.” AND WE ARE DISCOVERING NOW
THAT WE CAN HARDLY GOVERN OURSELVES AT ALL. AND HE SAID FURTHER “WE
HAVE NO GOVERNMENT ARMED WITH POWER CAPABLE OF
CONTENDING WITH HUMAN PASSIONS UNBRIDLED BY
MORALITY AND RELIGION.” AND YET THE INTELLECTUAL
ELITE OF THIS COUNTRY, WHETHER FOUND IN THE
MEDIA OR IN ACADEMIA OR GOVERNMENT OR WHEREVER
THEY HAVE DONE THEIR VERY BEST TO DESTROY THE
FOUNDATIONS BOTH OF MORALITY AND RELIGION,
WHICH GEORGE WASHINGTON CALLED THE TWIN PILLARS
UPON WHICH THIS NATION STANDS, AND FURTHER HE
SAID “LET NO MAN WHO LABORS TO UNDERMINE THOSE
PILLARS OF HUMAN HAPPINESS DARE TO CLAIM THE
TITLE OF PATRIOT.” AND YET MY FRIENDS TODAY
THEY DO THAT VERY THING. WHAT HUBRIS IT IS, THAT
THESE PEOPLE WITH SUCH ARROGANT PRIDE, WITH SUCH
INTELLECTUAL SNOBBERY, SUPPOSE THEMSELVES TO HAVE
THE ADVANCE, THE MODERN, THE WONDERFUL NEW ANSWERS
TO HUMAN PROBLEMS WHEN THEY HAVE CREATED A
VERITABLE CHAOS IN THIS COUNTRY. AND THEY SAY THAT THE ONLY
THING THEY NEED TO MAKE THINGS BETTER IS
SIMPLY MORE MONEY. HOW STUPID CAN WE BE? THE PROBLEM IS
NOT ECONOMICS, THE PROBLEM IS
GODLESSNESS. WE NEED TO REMEMBER WHO WE
ARE AND WE NEED TO CEASE BEING ASHAMED OF OUR GOD. AMERICA, SAID ONE, IS THE
ONLY NATION IN THE WORLD WHICH IS ASHAMED
OF ITS GOD. IT’S TIME FOR AMERICANS
TO STAND UP AND BOLDLY DECLARE HOW THIS
NATION WAS FOUNDED, WHAT IT WAS INTENDED TO
BE AND WHAT ITS PURPOSES WERE, AND ROLL THAT BACK. THOUGH I WILL SAY THERE IS
OF COURSE A MORAL ELEMENT IN THE ECONOMY, THERE IS
A MORAL ELEMENT IN THE MATTER OF DEBT. WHEN YOU CREATE DEBT WITH
NO REAL INTENTION OF REPAYING IT, ALL YOU’RE
DOING IS STEALING. WE ARE STEALING
FROM OUR CHILDREN, OUR GRANDCHILDREN, AND OUR
GREAT GRANDCHILDREN IN THIS COUNTRY TODAY. THAT IS SIN. I WONDER IF YOU REMEMBER
BACK BEFORE THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,
THAT FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS EVERY NIGHT ON EVERY
MAJOR NEWS PROGRAM, WE SAW A DIGITAL CLOCK
WHICH SHOWED US HOW RAPIDLY THE NATIONAL
DEBT WAS GROWING. AND WE HEARD STORY AFTER
STORY ABOUT THE TREMENDOUS PROBLEMS THAT THIS WAS
GOING TO CREATE FOR OUR COUNTRY IN YEARS TO COME,
AND WHAT WE WERE FOISTING OFF ON OUR CHILDREN
AND GRANDCHILDREN. AND THAT CLOCK CONTINUED
TO SPIN, WE HAD A PROBLEM, WE HAD A GRAVE PROBLEM. THIS NATION WAS IN TROUBLE
IN WE DIDN’T DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. WE NEEDED CHANGE, AND A
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RAN ON THE PATTERN OF
CHANGE, AND HE WON. HOW MANY OF YOU’VE SEEN
THAT CLOCK SINCE THEN? IT DISAPPEARED RIGHT OFF
THE FACE OF THE EARTH. ALL WE HEAR ABOUT NOW IS
THE PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO BE HURT BY EFFORTS TO
REDUCE THE DEFICIT AND THE DEBT. ISN’T THAT AMAZING? YOU DON’T SUPPOSE THERE’S A
MEDIA BIAS INVOLVED, DO YOU? NO, OF COURSE NOT. ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE,
THE FAMOUS PHILOSOPHER, HISTORIAN, WHO
CAME HERE IN 1830, MADE THIS PERCEPTIVE
STATEMENT WHICH WE HAVE FORGOTTEN AND WHICH
WE NEED TO REMEMBER. AMONG THE MANY THINGS
HE SAID IN DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA WAS THIS STATEMENT,
AS HE LOOKED WITH EAGLE-EYE INTO THE FUTURE AND SAW
WHAT WOULD BE THE END OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC. HE SAID: “AMERICA
WILL LAST UNTIL,” AND I WONDER HOW MANY
HERE KNOW WHAT HE SAID WOULD BRING ABOUT THE
DEMISE OF THIS REPUBLIC, “AMERICA WILL LAST UNTIL
THE POPULACE DISCOVERS THAT IT CAN VOTE FOR
ITSELF LARGESS OUT OF THE PUBLIC TREASURY.” HAS AMERICA
DISCOVERED THAT? I THINK THERE’S NO DOUBT
BUT THAT THEY HAVE, AND TODAY POLITICIANS, AND
YOU CERTAINLY COULD NOT CALL THEM STATESMEN, RUN
ON SIMPLY THE PLATFORM I WILL GIVE YOU MORE LARGESS
OUT OF THE PUBLIC TREASURY THAN WILL MY OPPONENT. AND SO BASED ON THAT
IMMORAL PRESUPPOSITION, AMERICA SINKS DEEPER
INTO THE ABYSS OF DEBT. WE ARE NOW IN GREATER DEBT
THAN ANY OTHER NATION IN HISTORY, BUT THAT’S
NOTHING WE ARE IN GREATER DEBT THAN ALL OF THE OTHER
NATIONS OF THE WORLD COMBINED AND WE’RE DOING
THIS TO OUR GRANDCHILDREN AND WHAT DO WE SAY? WE’RE ENTITLED. HOGWASH, IT’S STEALING
FROM YOUR CHILDREN. WELL WHAT IS THE CURE? THERE’S NO CURE FOR
GODLESSNESS, EXCEPT GOD. WE HAVE TURNED OUR BACKS
UPON GOD AND WE NEED TO RETURN UNTO HIM. IT HAS BEEN SAID BY ONE
HISTORIAN THAT NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD
HAS ANY NATION IN SO BRIEF A SPAN OF TIME TURNED
ITS BACK UPON ITS GOD. UPON ITS GOD, UPON ITS
RELIGION, UPON ITS MORALS, ITS ETHICS, ITS
TRADITIONS, ITS CULTURE. FOLKS, IT’S TIME FOR
CHRISTIANS TO GET MAD AND SAY, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,
AND I’M GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!” BECAUSE IN THE FINAL
ANALYSIS, MY FRIENDS, MUCH OF THE BLAME MUST
BE LAID RIGHT AT OUR DOORSTEP, RIGHT AT THE
DOORSTEP OF THE CHURCH, OF PASTORS THAT WON’T SAY
ANYTHING ABOUT ANY MATTER THAT IS CONTROVERSIAL LEST
THEY STEP ON SOMEBODY’S TOES. DID I STEP ON
YOUR TOES TODAY? TOUGH! YOU NEEDED THEM STEPPED ON! (APPLAUSE) AT THE FEET OF CHRISTIANS
WHO HAVE NOT BEEN OBEDIENT TO THE GREAT COMMISSION. I REMEMBER TWENTY YEARS
AGO A CHRISTIAN SAID TO ME, “YOU DON’T REALLY
BELIEVE THAT CHRISTIANS SHOULD GET ACTIVE IN
POLITICS, DO YOU?” AND I SAID, WITH
TONGUE IN CHEEK, “WHY, OF COURSE NOT. WE OUGHT TO LEAVE
IT TO THE ATHEISTS. OTHERWISE WE WOULDN’T HAVE
ANYTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT, AND WE’D REALLY RATHER
COMPLAIN THAN DO SOMETHING, WOULDN’T WE.” AND THAT IS EXACTLY
WHAT HAS HAPPENED. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE THE
MESS THAT WE HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY TODAY, WHAT IS
CALLED A POST-CHRISTIAN CULTURE IN AMERICA TODAY. AND I THINK ABOUT A CHURCH
OUTSIDE OF HOUSTON I HEARD ABOUT THIS WEEK- ONLY 1,200
PEOPLE, THE PEOPLE IN ONE OF THESE SECTIONS OR SO,
1,200 PEOPLE IN A TOWN OF 30,000, AND THEY SAID,
“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”- AND THEY BECAME ACTIVE. THEY HADN’T BEEN BEFORE. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED? THREE OF THE CITY
COMMISSIONERS OF FIVE ARE IN THEIR CHURCH. THREE OF THE BOARD OF
EDUCATION OF FIVE ARE IN THEIR CHURCH. SO IS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
AND THE MAYOR AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE. ALL KINDS OF THE LEADERS
OF THAT COMMUNITY ARE IN THAT CHURCH, AND THEY ARE
TRANSFORMING THAT CITY FOR GOOD. GARY BAUER WHO WILL BE
WITH US IN RECLAIMING AMERICA, WHO IS A
GREAT MAN OF GOD, A GREAT AMERICAN, I TALKED
TO HIM IN MEMPHIS NIGHT BEFORE LAST AND HE’S
PUBLISHED A SMALL BOOK THAT PRODUCES THE RESULTS
OF SOME STUDIES OF THEIRS, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF
CHRISTIANS RECLAIMED AMERICA. AND HE SAID THAT FROM THE
STATE HOUSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE, FROM THE LOCAL
COURTS TO THE SUPREME COURTS, AND THE PRESIDENTS
OF UNIVERSITIES AND THE EDUCATION SYSTEM, AND THE
WHOLE KETTLE OF FISH, AND HE SAID THE RESULTS
WERE SO ASTONISHINGLY POSITIVE, THAT EVEN
UNBELIEVERS, WHEN PRESENTED WITH THAT, WERE VERY
FAVORABLY IMPRESSED. CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT
IT WOULD MEAN TO THIS COUNTRY? IT WOULD BE A NEW BIRTH OF
FREEDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GODLINESS
AND MORALITY. BUT CHRISTIANS NEED
TO GET INVOLVED. WHY IF EVERY CHRISTIAN IN
AMERICA MERELY REGISTERED AND VOTED, THAT WOULD
MAKE A DIFFERENCE. MIGHT I SAY TO YOU THAT IT
WOULD BE WELL FOR YOU TO VOTE FOR CHRISTIANS
TO RULE OVER YOU. NOW YOU SAY, “MY, MY, THAT
SOUNDS VERY DISCRIMINATORY. WE SHOULDN’T SAY
SOMETHING LIKE THAT.” WELL, IT WASN’T MY IDEA. I WAS SIMPLY
QUOTING JOHN JAY. I WON’T ASK YOU HOW OF
MANY OF YOU KNOW WHO JOHN JAY WAS. HE WAS THE FIRST CHIEF
JUSTICE OF THE FIRST SUPREME COURT. HE WAS APPOINTED BY
GEORGE WASHINGTON. HE WAS ONE OF THE GREAT
FOUNDERS OF THIS COUNTRY. HE, ALONG WITH
MADISON AND HAMILTON, WROTE THE FEDERALIST
PAPERS, WHICH SOLD THE COLONIES ON THE
CONSTITUTION. ONE OF THE GREATEST
FOUNDERS OF OUR COUNTRY, JOHN JAY CHIEF JUSTICE
SAID THAT “GOD HAS GIVEN US A CHRISTIAN NATION AND
IT IS THE PRIVILEGE AND DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY
OF CHRISTIANS TO PREFER CHRISTIANS FOR
THEIR RULERS.” ONE OF THE PROBLEMS TODAY
WE JUST HAVEN’T GOT ENOUGH OF THEM RUNNING FOR
OFFICE TO EVEN PREFER. ANYBODY GOT ANY IDEAS? MAYBE GOD IS
SPEAKING TO YOU. AND SECONDLY, AND LASTLY,
WE NEED TO BE INVOLVED IN SHARING THE GOSPEL OF
CHRIST WITH PEOPLE. YOU CANNOT IMPOSE A
CHRISTIAN CULTURE ON A GODLESS SOCIETY. BECAUSE OF OUR APATHY, AND
OUR INDIFFERENCE AND OUR FAILURE TO OBEY THE
GREAT COMMISSION, WE HAVE ALLOWED TO RISE UP
AROUND US A WHOLE NATION OF PEOPLE THAT NOT
ONLY KNOW NOT JOSEPH, AS THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
BUT KNOW NOT JESUS, AND WHO DON’T KNOW THE
SAVIOR BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT SHARED WITH
THEM THE GOSPEL. AH, DEAR FRIENDS, TO MY
DYING BREATH I WILL BE URGING YOU TO SHARE THE GOOD
NEWS OF CHRIST WITH OTHERS. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY
OF EVERYBODY WHO CLAIMS TO BE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS. HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THAT? DID YOU DO IT THIS WEEK? DID YOU DO IT THIS
YEAR THAT’S PAST? HAVE YOU EVEN BOTHERED TO
INVITE SOMEBODY TO CHURCH? DO YOU REALIZE THAT JUST
BY INVITING PEOPLE TO CHURCH, YOU COULD
CHANGE THIS COUNTRY? THAT THEY MIGHT HEAR THE
GOSPEL AND THEIR HEARTS COULD BE CHANGED. THAT IS WHAT
IT’S ALL ABOUT. IF WE WILL BECOME FAITHFUL TO
WHAT GOD HAS TOLD US TO DO. AH, DEAR ONE, MAY WE BEGIN
TODAY TO DETERMINE THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE SALT IN A
CORRUPTING BODY POLITIC. THAT WE ARE GOING TO BRING
THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL INTO THE DARKNESS OF A LOST
WORLD, THAT THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST MAY RING
OUT AGAIN AND THE TIDINGS OF SALVATION AND ETERNAL
LIFE WILL BECOME THE BLESSED POSSESSION AND
PRIVILEGE AND JOY OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT
THIS NATION. AND THIS COUNTRY
WILL CHANGE, AND THE PATIENT
WILL GET WELL. MAY IT BE, AND MAY
IT BEGIN WITH YOU. LET US PRAY FATHER, CHANGE
THIS NATION, WE PRAY. WE ASK THAT YOU WILL,
BY YOUR HOLY SPIRIT, WORK IN OUR HEARTS AND THE
HEARTS OF ALL OF THOSE THAT ARE LISTENING BY
RADIO AND WATCHING BY TELEVISION; THAT WE MAY
TAKE SERIOUSLY YOUR COMMAND THAT WE ARE
TO BE SALT AND LIGHT; THAT WE ARE TO RENDER UNTO
CAESAR AND UNTO THEE THOSE THINGS THAT BELONG TO EACH;
THAT WE MAY BE USED IN OUR GENERATION, IN OUR TIME,
TO CHANGE THIS NATION AND THIS WORLD FROM GODLESSNESS
TO GODLINESS, AND BRING IT BACK TO THEE; THAT IN TRUTH,
ONCE MORE, THAT THE SOVEREIGN MIGHT BE ENTHRONED-
EVEN CHRIST THE LORD. IN HIS NAME WE PRAY. AMEN. FRIEND, THERE IS NO SIN SO
GREAT THAT GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE IF WE COME TO
HIM IN SINCERITY AND REPENTANCE. HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED THE
LIFE TRANSFORMING POWER THAT COMES WITH KNOWING
JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR AND LORD? IF NOT, I URGE YOU TO COME
TO HIM TODAY WITHOUT DELAY. “THIS IS THE DAY
OF SALVATION.” DON’T WAIT! WE CAN GO TO GOD TOGETHER
IN PRAYER RIGHT NOW. SIMPLY PRAY, “LORD,
JESUS CHRIST, HAVE MERCY ON ME AND
PLEASE FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS OF THOUGHT,
WORD AND DEED. CLEANSE ME AND LEAD ME IN
NEW AND RIGHT WAYS SO THAT I MAY EXPERIENCE THE
ABUNDANT LIFE THAT YOU HAVE COME TO GIVE. HELP ME TO LIVE FOR YOU
FROM THIS DAY FORWARD IN JESUS NAME I PRAY, AMEN.” IF YOU JUST PRAYED THAT
PRAYER, YOU’VE JUST BEGUN THE GREATEST ADVENTURE
OF YOUR LIFE. TO HELP YOU WE WANT
TO SEND YOU A BOOK, WRITTEN BY DR. KENNEDY,
THAT WILL HELP YOU GROW IN YOUR NEW FAITH. IT’S CALLED BEGINNING
AGAIN AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING. IN THESE PAGES, YOU’LL
LEARN HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE, HOW TO PRAY AND
EVEN HOW TO SHARE YOUR FAITH WITH OTHERS. TO RECEIVE YOUR COPY OF
BEGINNING AGAIN, JUST WRITE TO THE ADDRESS OR CALL
OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER. GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU DO. IN THIS ELECTION YEAR,
WE HEAR MANY DIFFERENT DIAGNOSES OF AMERICA’S
ILLS, AS WELL AS MANY PRESCRIPTIONS FOR
CURING THEM. BUT IF WE FORGET THE
TRUE CAUSE OF AMERICA’S PROBLEMS- WHICH AS
DR. KENNEDY SHOWED US TODAY IS GODLESSNESS- WE
WILL LOOK TO THOSE WHO HAVE NO IDEA
HOW TO CURE IT. AS CHRISTIANS, WE NEED TO
BE LOOKING TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE GOD’S WORD AND
HAVE AN ACCURATE READ ON THE DISEASE. PRAGMATISM- THE IDEA THAT
WE CAN PUT PRINCIPLE ASIDE IN FAVOR OF WHATEVER WE
THINK WILL WORK FOR THE MOMENT- IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE
CHRISTIAN OUTLOOK. IF YOU’D LIKE TO HAVE THIS
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO KEEP, OR TO SHARE WITH OTHERS,
YOU CAN HAVE A DVD OR CD OF THIS PROGRAM FOR A
GENEROUS DONATION OF ANY AMOUNT TOWARD THE ONGOING
WORK OF THIS MINISTRY. SIMPLY WRITE TO US AT: OR CALL TOLL FREE: OR GO ONLINE TO: THIS IS A RESOURCE WORTH
SHARING WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY, A BIBLE STUDY GROUP,
OR EVEN YOUR PASTOR. AND YOU’LL BE HELPING THIS
MINISTRY TO BROADCAST THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL OF
JESUS CHRIST AND THE VITAL TRUTHS OF GOD’S WORD. I’M FRANK WRIGHT. THANK YOU FOR JOINING
US ON KENNEDY CLASSICS. WE’LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME. THIS HAS BEEN A
PRODUCTION OF D. JAMES KENNEDY MINISTRIES

I'm so happy that we are now getting a full sermon of Dr. Kennedy's each weak in stead of a 15minute snip-it. Please keep it coming. I really miss the 15min portion of the Corral Ridge hour after the sermon when they always had a story on the current events of Society and the moral aspects relevant to us today. I also miss the fantastic videos that Coral Ridge produced such as Who is This Jesus, What if Christ Hadn't Been Born, and many others.

This as with many other sermons,is almost like prophesy.This message is as if not more relevant today as when first published.Sadly were heading exactly as Mr.Kennedy has said.This particular video is head on.I;m not surprised that the viewership is very low.Cause the majority today know not God in any level! Please keep these precious gems for the few of us to learn and from a Man of God.
