THYME Magazine

Citizen Journalism with a Better Flavor

Volume III, Issue XXXI

Bringing America to Her Knees

The 'other' weekly news magazine trumpets the downgrading of America's credit rating. They show a picture of George Washington from the dollar bill with a black eye. They also claim on the same cover that the Tea Party has hijacked America!

THYME is well aware of who is largely responsible for the downgrading of America, and who REALLY gave the dollar a black eye! Thanks to the Tea Party we have not gone quietly into the night, but have seen some strong challenge to the reckless borrowing and runaway spending of our Federal government.

Is there a way back from the brink? History suggests we must make some tough choices. Government spending MUST be cut and the private sector must be set free to create real value again. The revolution that began with the 2010 elections cannot end now.

Something to Think About:

"And the Spirit of G-d came upon Azariah the son of Oded:

And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true G-d, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

But when they in their trouble did turn unto the LORD G-d of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.

And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries.

And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of city: for G-d did vex them with all adversity.

Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded."

-- 2 Chronicles 15: 1-7

If the great crisis we now face drives us to seek the face of G-d, it may be a blessing. Much of the greatness of our country comes in the afterglow of great revivals. Might we just dare to pray that G-d would send revival... and men like D. L. Moody and Jonathan Edwards for our day.
