"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

The Antidote for “Christian” Divorce

Yet another Christian couple tells me they’re dissolving their marriage – despite the young children the Lord has entrusted to them.  I asked the question I usually do when friends deliver such horrific news: “Have you been reading the Bible together each day?”

But I already knew the answer. Indeed, I have yet to hear from any prospective divorcees that they study God’s Word with their spouses daily.

Our Lord commands us to read His Law and to expound it within our families. If you’re neglecting this vital duty, you will one day answer to God Himself as to why. Understand, too, that His judgment may fall on you – and your innocent offspring -- here and now rather than waiting for eternity, as you endure the bitterness, regret, and heartbreak of a disintegrating home.

Finally, each divorce, especially among those of us who are supposed to be salt and light to the world, is a triumph for Leviathan. The beast despises intact, loving families precisely because they are the strongest bastions against it. Ergo, arm yourself and your spouse for battle against Satan’s citadel, the State: read the Bible every day, individually, together as a couple, and corporately with all members of your household. It's the best insurance any family can have.
