Printed boldly on the back of the United States currency is the motto "In God We Trust." We have seen it so often that it may have lost its meaning to us. But found in these words is the secret to national and personal greatness.Webster's Dictionary defines the word trust as "a firm belief or confidence in the honesty, integrity, reliability and justice of another person or thing."When our founding fathers put their names to the Declaration of Independence, they believed that God was the only sure foundation upon which to build a nation that would endure. These men knew that this unique experiment in freedom would only stand the test of time by God's grace. George Washington stated it simply, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."Reliance upon God was deeply rooted in our country's important documents and institutions from the beginning. But today confidence in God and His Word is no longer the foundation of society.In our schools the God of Creation has been replaced by the "god" of evolutionary chance. Truth has been replaced by relativism. Morality has been replaced by expediency.In our homes we nightly view things that were unimaginable on television and in movies only a decade ago. Violence, sexual perversion and obscene language spill off the screen.In the political arena God's principles of truth and justice have often given way to expedience, personal profit, and compromise.As we have departed from God, life has been devalued. The lives of unborn children are snuffed out in abortion clinics and the number of robberies, rapes and murders increase daily.It is time that we return to the values of God's Word in our public and private lives so that He will heal our land. We must begin person by person on our knees, confessing our failure to trust God fully in our lives.Today you can affirm your trust in God if you will: Acknowledge that you need salvation: The Bible says, "All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Recognize God's love for you: "God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). Receive Jesus and His forgiveness, the only basis for encountering God. "As many as received Him (Jesus), to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).God is calling you to put your trust in Him today! Don't ignore His call!

They said it would never happen in America, but the First Amendment was severely attacked in Nebraska from 1977 to 1984. Christian Conviction v. State Persecution chronicles not only the events but why they took place. This was not isolated to a single denomination or group. Among the churches attacked were Amish, Mennonite, Apostolic, Pentecostal, Baptist, and Church of Christ. Among the homeschool families, the list expands farther. Faith, freedom, and liberty were all under attack by the Nebraska Department of Education and their allies in the courts and the state legislature. Before I ever met Paul, I had seen his face on the CBN film footage of him being hauled away by sheriff's deputies from an altar where he was praying with a group of men. As Paul writes in this book, "Few cases of the loss of Christian freedom have drawn more attention than the jailing of the pastor and the padlocking of the [Faith Baptist] church building in Louisville, Nebraska." The powerful film footage and photos from this incident 'went viral' across the American evangelical landscape, and there was widespread outrage and concern. This persecution backfired: It would cement the courage and convictions of an entire generation of parents who had become increasingly alarmed about what was happening in public schools. --Sarah Leslie Publisher and Iowa Homeschool Leader Paul Zylstra and some of his compatriots were a large part of the intellectual undergirding of this endeavor that proved in large measure successful over a number of years. This book is a great work in establishing the underlying issues facing honest disciples in Jesus in responding to the intrusions of the "state" into matters of faith. --Pastor Larry Lautaret Nebraska Christian School Leader Most people feel that the First Amendment has been followed everywhere in the USA since the founding of this great country. In the 1980s, in the state of Nebraska, several people went to jail, lost jobs, and fled the state because there was an existing law that violated Christian liberty. As Christians realized, the government-controlled system was going against what the Bible taught. Therefore, they started their own schools free from state control. This book tells in detail what happened when the established government tried to control Bible Christianity in Nebraska and how the Lord of heaven stepped in and straightened things out. --Warren Rushton Author and Nebraska Homeschool Leader

Journalist Russ Bellant examines the influential but little-known role of the Coors beer family in American politics. Through their philanthropic donations, Joseph Coors and other family members have bankrolled a right-wing agenda of union-busting, homophobia, sexism, racism, and covert operations. The Coors family has served as the cornerstone of the right-wing movement known as the New Right. "The Coors Connection" details the individuals, organizations, and causes supported by Coors philanthropy. A picture emerges of a family's frighteningly narrow vision of the American dream, and its willingness to support extremists who would undermine American democracy. Russ Bellant is an investigative journalist whose work has appeared in the National Catholic Reporter, the New York Times, the Texas Observer, and other publications. In 1984, he contributed to an award-winning NBC documentary on Lyndon LaRouche. Mr. Bellant was honored in 1989 for investigative reporting by the Catholic Press Association, which said, "Tracking the historical roots of a group or movement is nothing short of a monumental task... Bellant is obviously very much at home with investigative reporting." Mr. Bellant is also the author of "Old Nazis", "The New Right", and "The Republican Party"-- South End Press, 1991.
