September is upon us, and we are just weeks from a truly historical election. Last March, Dr. William Forstchen gave his feelings regarding voting and about our place as American citizens.
“Abraham Lincoln, is one of my heroes who I rate with George Washington as one of the two greatest presidents we’ve ever had.. Abraham Lincoln once said: ‘we shall either nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of mankind.’” Forstchen added, “I believe that now. In November we shall either nobly save, or meanly lose the last best hope on Earth. That is how important this has become.”
Mr. Forstchen continued, “When the declaration was signed, Benjamin Franklin proclaimed, ‘Gentlemen, we shall either all hang together, or we shall hang separately. And we pledge our lives and our sacred honor upon what we do here.”
“ How many of you have walked the fields of Gettysburg?” Forstchen asked. “ How many of you have looked at the thousands of graves in which Lincoln said in his infamous speech at the very end, ‘That government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from this Earth’.”
With soft emotion, William described how those soldiers, in all of our history, gave their last full measure of devotion. He explained that he always tells people that when you walk into a voting booth, you must hold close in your heart and mind the sacrifice that millions of American’s have made. You must remember that this is not something trivial and absolutely not about some 30- second ad about who told the biggest lie..
“I want you to go in there saying to yourself that men and women gave their last full measure of devotion. I want you to be thinking and praying before pulling the level and vote for a person that you honestly feel will respect the millions of martyrs who gave us our freedom.”
Author and Professor William Forstchen always brings stunning insights on our country and on the danger and challenges that America faces. His book, One Second After has brought reality to our door on what can happen if we ignore these dangerous times. We are so excited that he will be returning to be with us at Morningside as a guest on The Jim Bakker show Tuesday, September 6th at noon and as a very special teacher on our Prophets Speak evening program, Monday, September 5th and Tuesday the 6th at 7pm. Our evening programs will be shown via live feed at watch us live. These are programs you will not want to miss!
