A Tribute Never Equal to the Debt They Are Owed

“Today, we gather to honor those who gave everything to preserve our way of life. The men and women we honor here served for liberty. They sacrificed for liberty. And in countless acts of courage, they died for liberty. From faraway lands, they were returned to cemeteries like this one, where broken hearts received their broken bodies — they found peace beneath the white headstones in the land they fought to defend.
… The men and women of American armed forces perform extraordinary acts of heroism every single day. Like the nation they serve, they do not glory in the devastation of war. They also do not flinch from combat when liberty and justice are embattled. Ronald Tucker, Nathan Hardy and Mike Koch make clear, they do not waver — even in the face of danger.
And so today, here in Washington and across our country, we pay tribute to all who have fallen — a tribute never equal to the debt they are owed. We will forever honor their memories. We will forever search for their comrades, the POWs and MIAs. And we pledge — we offer a solemn pledge to persevere and to provide the security for our citizens and secure the peace for which they fought.
The soil of Arlington and other sites is filled with liberty’s defenders. It is nourished by their heroism. It is watered by the silent tears of the mothers and fathers, and husbands and wives, and sons and daughters they left behind. Today we pray for God’s blessing on all who grieve and ask the Almighty to strengthen and comfort them today and everyday.

On this Memorial Day, I stand before you as the Commander-in-Chief and try to tell you how proud I am at the sacrifice and service of the men and women who wear our uniform. They’re an awesome bunch of people and the United States is blessed to have such citizens.
I am humbled by those who have made the ultimate sacrifice that allow a free civilization to endure and flourish. It only remains for us, the heirs of their legacy, to have the courage and the character to follow their lead — and to preserve America as the greatest nation on earth and the last best hope for mankind.
May God bless you and may God bless America.”

We Want a Righteous Invasion of Truth

‘R.I.O.T.’ Lyrics (2007)
Written by: Carmelo ‘Carman’ Domenic Licciardello & Tommy L. Sims
 
“Webster’s dictionary say a riot is like an unrestrained
Uproar in a public place, turbulent right in your face
With the facts we’re gonna spread God’s Word
And attack every lie you’ve heard

Like the doctrines of men that are still fallen prey
To the silvery sword of God’s Word today
It’s true, we look to Heaven and our mansions in the sky
And it’s true we’ve got the gaze of Eternity in our eyes

But before this Church is raptured
There’s no way we’re gonna leave here quiet
We want a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Jesus, we’re gonna see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Righteous, to conform to the Bible
Invasion an armed attack
Of truth, the real state of affairs
Like a church on the move that will not double back

From the fight, ’cause we’re salt and light
And we thrive on Jesus, the theme of our lives
And here’s the spin
Love nothin’ but God, hate nothin’ but sin

It’s true, now’s the time to win nations for the Lord
And it’s true, now’s an hour, the saints must go to war
We’ll preach it, we’ll sing it, we’ll shout it, we’ll cry it
‘Cause desperate times need desperate action
And that means we need a R.I.O.T.

Satan is a madman, a relentless entity
He’s the source of every plague known to the human family
We understand the mortal conflict in which we are engaged
And the gates of Hell come crashing down
When the saints of God begin to praise

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Jesus, we’re gonna see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.”

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Oh, Jesus, we need to see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, Jesus
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, Jesus
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

In America, Again

‘America Again’ Lyrics
Written by: Carmelo ‘Carman’ Domenic Licciardello & Michael Omartian
 
“George Washington, Thomas Jefferson
Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country
Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain by divine call
Citing 27 Biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence
With liberty and justice for all

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone
For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light
Or since “Give me liberty or give me death”, Patrick Henry said
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We eliminated God from the equation of American life
Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead
You need God in America again

Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution
Fifty-two were active members of their church
Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary
Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse

James Madison said, “We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow
The Ten Commandments with all our heart”
These men believed you couldn’t even call yourself an American
If you subvert the Word of God

In his farewell address, Washington said, “You can’t have
National morality apart from religious principle,” and it’s true
‘Cause right now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns
To these war zones we call public schools

In the ’40’s and ’50’s student problems were chewing gum and talking
In the ’90’s, rape and murder are the trend
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade
Is to put God in America again

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for America is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say,
“We need God in America again.”

Abe Lincoln said, “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation
Will be the philosophy of the government of the next”
So when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and politics
You eliminate the nation that Word protects
America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
Number one in illiteracy, drug use and divorce
Every day a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
While pornography flood our streets like open sewers

America’s dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point where people would rather come out of the closet than clean it
It’s the sign that the judgement of God is gonna fall

If there’s ever been a time to rise up Church, it’s now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim
That it’s time to send the alarm from the Church house to The White House
And say, “We want God in America again”

I believe it’s time America to stand up and proclaim
That one nation under God is our demand
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from
And let the Word of God revive our dying land

For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory
And every eye shall see Him on that day
That’s why a new anointing of God’s power’s coming on us
To boldly tell the world you must be saved

Because astrology won’t save you, your horoscope won’t save you
The Bible says these things are all farce
If you’re born again you don’t need to look to the stars for your answers
‘Cause you can look to the very One who made those stars

History tells us time and time again
To live like there’s no God makes you a fool
If you want to see kids live right
Stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in schools

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for America is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say,
“We need God in America again.”

(repeat)

We need God in America
God in America
God in America again”

A Government Telling, We, the People How to Live?

“And I don’t think that government has a role in telling people how to live their lives. Maybe a minister does, maybe your belief in God does, maybe there’s another set of moral codes, but I don’t think government has a role.”

A Nation Under God or A Nation Gone Under?

Actor, Sports Announcer, Politician, 33rd Governor of California (1967–1975), &
40th President of the United States (1/20/1981–1/20/1989)

“We WERE free.” or be able to continue saying “WE’RE free.”?”

In My Own Journey, He Has Won My Heart

“In our raping, molesting, defiled, diseased, greedy, impoverished, violent, warring, mismanaged planet with natural and man-made disasters, people don’t so much doubt that there is GOD; they do, however, suffer doubt that HE is GOOD.

In the face of all this, and my own sufferings, it’s no wonder God does not demand that I trust Him. No, instead, He invites me to learn of Him. In my own journey, He has won my heart. What might He do to win back yours?”

One, Two, Three, Go Be Free!

“So I began my journey with the Lord, and I always say I just wished that he’d waved his magic wand. ‘One, two, three, go be free! Go be straight, date, and mate; bing! But it didn’t happen, but what He did begin to do was to give me grace to crucify flesh, and He began to take me on a path that I would have never imagined. … My wonderful wife Karen of almost twenty-five years … didn’t marry me because she thought that her love could fix my homosexuality. She knew better. But she did say that I grew into a man who earned trust that she could respect.”

Heaven, Hell & Homosexuality

“Well my gay friends in Hawaii who had gotten married to each other, I wrote them an anniversary card, and they wrote me a letter saying, ‘Don’t let everybody else tell you what to believe about heaven, hell, and homosexuality. Do your own research into the Bible and, if you do, you will discover what we have: the teachings of the gay church sounded really great, but as we read God’s Word objectively He leads us in truth, and we felt convicted and convinced that the teaching from the gay church is an error … We’ve left our gay marriage and our lifestyle and we are now born again and praying for you.”

Seeing Sin as a Good Thing

“Unbelief doesn’t see God as the ultimate good. So it can’t see sin as the ultimate evil. It instead sees sin as a good thing and thus God’s commands as a stumbling block to joy. In believing the Devil, I didn’t need a pentagram pendant to wear, neither did I need to memorize a hex or two. All I had to do was trust myself more than God’s Word. I had to believe that my thoughts, my affections, my rights, my wishes, were worthy of absolute obedience and that in laying prostrate before the flimsy throne I’d made for myself, that I’d be doing a good thing.”

The Identity We Will Give Ourselves & The Life That We Inevitably Live

“It is the identity that we ascribe to God out of doubt or faith in His Scriptures
that will determine the identity we will give ourselves and ultimately the life that we inevitably live.
If He is the Creator, then we are created. If He is Master, then we are servants.
If He is love, then we are loved. If He is omnipotent, then we are not as powerful as we think.
If He is omniscient, then there is nowhere to hide. If He cannot lie, then His promises are all true.
It is faith in the truths of God’s character that has the power to completely revolutionize
how our lives are lived out.”
