The Time, Effort, Money Equation

Let’s back up a bit before this election (2016), and before I do, I want to reiterate once again – yes, it was a very poor display and attitude by Trump with Billy Bush as well as Trump a man overall, there is no one that will claim this is raising the bar nor a way to build character.

That said, 11 years ago Trump did not claim to be a Christian and truthfully not so sure what his stance is now (2016) but his head and heart seem to be heading in a better direction, time will tell…

This is far from letting Billy boy Clinton from being off the hook either, as secular as he is.

And I also want to share that I am just as guilty as anyone with what I am about to share — something of which I intend to correct…

With all that said, more to the point of this post…

We can always determine what anyone values who and what fills up their time,
what and what receives their most effort, and
where they invest their money they invest into something

Values should never be determined by their intentions, words are cheap and don’t fill the time, effort, and money equation very well.

So, here are some questions concerning what we have really determined as opposed to what we intended as a nation with our time, efforts, and money since the 1960s…

Since 1963, what have we
as Christians done
to stop the road of withdrawal
from God our country has taken?

Where we focus is where we end up — intentions are only good when accompanied by enough money to buy a cup of coffee.

The results around us are the surest way to determine where we are focused, period.

3 Pivotal SCOTUS Cases Before 1990

Here’s a look at 3 pivotal Supreme Court cases that were decided before 1990.

They are cases that were very pivotal in determining the direction our country would take then and as a result how we got to where we are now…


We see 1963 as the first pivotal point to our situation today as our Supreme Court decided to remove Bibles from our schools.

This resulted in the first wedge driven into our faith that delivered the secularism foothold onto the threshold of the door of globalism.

So some very serious questions on accountability and responsibility on our part…

  • How are our schools doing now that God has been permitted exit?
  • What actions have we taken until recently to have the Bibles returned to our schools?
  • What happens whenever we permit God to exit anything in our life?
  • Where has our time, effort and money been going while all this is going on?

From a position of accountability and responsibility, what do we see today?

We see our youth taking matters into their own hands, having Bible studies off-campus, and some are taking it a step further and demanding their rights be returned and honored…

Keyword? Our youth…

Where are the adults? The parents? The pastors? The Principal? The Mayors? The Attorneys?

Aren’t we as adults supposed to be leading?

We see many being journalistic about it all, standing by the sidelines while cheering them on…

Why weren’t we leading the way in the 50 plus years since this decision?

Some have, but most have not…


Roe vs Wade in 1973 is another pivotal point as our Supreme Court decided that the convenience of the mother was more important than that of the baby she was carrying…

  • Where are we today on this, are we not now permitting the termination of babies that would otherwise live?
  • Where is the threat to them for selling parts of a baby for their profits of blood?
  • What happens whenever we permit God to exit?
  • Where has our time, effort and money been going while all this is going on?


1980, in the Diamond v. Chakrabarty, was a United States Supreme Court case dealing with whether genetically modified organisms can be patented…

  • Once again, God’s creation is being wedged out in favor of secularism…
  • Today we have Monsanto wanting to merge with Bayer, the 2 largest conglomerates that focus on manipulating what God has created in the vain attempts to ‘perfect it’ as well as produce it in massive volumes per acre… Anyone who has a garden knows the impact of both just on a small garden never mind what happens to the food as well as our own digestive system eating such modified foods…
  • What happens whenever we permit God to exit?
  • Where has our time, effort and money been going while all this is going on?

The Price of Limiting God In Our Country

Only 2 countries have been founded with God as the center of their existence – Israel and the United States.

Israel was formed as God so loved His own people, the United States was formed as the people so loved God.

Since 1963, there have been some, and only some, decisions that were favorable to our Constitution and to what our Founding Fathers wanted our Constitution to embrace.

Our Supreme Court does not make law, they only make decisions –

Our laws are made by our legislative branch – our House, and our Senate.

Keyword: OUR… WE are their boss, and this is yet another right we have forfeited.

As We the People own the legislative branch, that means decisions are challengeable, even if by one person.

How many of us claim to be Christians and have not challenged our Supreme Court?

Yes, we’re guilty of this too – until recently.

By our Constitution, the Supreme Court Decisions can only interpret the law — and this is being done by a bench that has proven to be heavily politically biased since the 1960s as well.

We the People and our Supreme Court falsely believe the SCOTUS  decisions are final – as they are decisions and the word ‘decision’ is plainly printed on the front page of every one of their final drafts…

Why do we bring all this up?

There are many upset – both Christian and non-Christian alike — with whom we have to choose for our next President — and truthfully, I am as well.

However, this is where we part company with most…

If we had been wisely investing our time,
our efforts, our money
into managing a better direction for our country,

If we had been adhering to 2 Chronicles 7:14
since the 1960s with
our time, our efforts, our actions, our money,

Does anyone really, really, really believe
we would still have such 2 pathetic choices
for our next President?

Here’s a newsflash for many Christians and it is very unfortunate that it has come to this point:

We are reaping the harvest
we have sewn since the 1960s
in the form of the options
we have today.

For the secularists here, “The end cannot justify the means, for the simple and obvious reason that the means employed determine the nature of the ends produced.” ~ Aldous Huxley

And truthfully, we are getting tired of the bellyaching and whining of those that have taken little if no time, little if no effort, little if no money to stem this tide for that past 60 plus years…

If our words have your blood is boiling, then good as it means your convictions are talking to you — now, what are you going to do about it?

If you are feeling convicted, then good — now, what are you going to do about it?

We fully believe Trump is our only option as we have deemed it so with how we pass our time, with our past energies and actions, with where we sewed our money.

All this brings me to the point of this post:

Throughout the Bible, when has God
handed us the best He has for us
while we have been wedging Him
out of our lives as we have done
on so many levels for the past 60 plus years?

If you think there’s a better candidate out there, then I for one fully believe God’s hand is keeping him — or her — hidden until we get out of our houses and claim our faith back…

In full…

With how we invest our time…
With what actions we take…
With where we sew our money…

Meantime, learn to embrace what grace God has given us as we could have had a lot worse if God removed His hands entirely from our country.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only two nations that have placed God within their Constitution and way of life - one was created by God for the people he loves, and the other was created by people who love God.
