Celebrating the Birthday of President George Washington
George Washington at Valley Forge

"Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that thou wilt keep the United States in thy holy protection..." — George Washington
 

A Christmas Story: Valley Forge 1776

by Marshall Foster, President of World History Institute

[Though no longer the Christmas season, we thought this article, slightly edited, a fitting remembrance for George Washington’s birthday celebration.—ed]

We face...this year...a time as critical for the cause of freedom as that of the patriot cause in 1776. Although our adversaries may be more elusive, the same biblical strategy of victory rings through the ages if we will listen and learn from the small freezing remnant who camped on the shores of the Delaware over 230 years ago.

“At Valley Forge, the Father of his country went alone, and sought strength and guidance from the God of armies and of light.” – Albert Barnes, D.D. Read On

Apostle of Liberty: The World-Changing Leadership of George Washington Apostle of Liberty: The World-Changing Leadership of George Washington

by Stephen McDowell

George Washington is one of the most significant men in all of history. As far as the advancement of liberty goes, he may well be THE most significant. After providing the leadership necessary to hold the troops together during the Revolutionary War, he rebuffed an attempt to make him king of the United States, thereby preventing a monarchy or military rule. Apostle of Liberty is a biography of this great man, but also a look into his unique personal qualities as an outstanding leader. George Washington firmly believed that God in His providence had chosen him to lead the new nation that was founded on liberty - civil, religious, and economic. Shop Online

Newtown Massacre School Carnage: Blame Church, Not God or Guns

By William J. Murray

If an individual is not afraid of the wrath of God, it is impossible to cause him to fear the justice of the state.

The killing of young children at their school will be linked by many pundits to the availability of guns. Still others will blame the violent act on some pathology or childhood trauma. Some may even blame the Hollywood culture with its disregard for humanity, on which human bodies are seen being dissected nightly on network TV. Virtually no one will call what occurred in Newtown an act of evil. Read On


"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily." — George Washington

Star ParkerDoes the Republican Party have a future?

by Star Parker

No matter how hard you squint and try to discern the values of Lincoln and Frederick Douglass in those now wielding the money and power at the top of the party, they've disappeared.

The United States, from Day One, was a project about principles and ideals.

The superpower that emerged and grew from the handful of colonists that began settling here was not the product of where those colonists happened to land, but of the ideals and principles in their heads and hearts, applied in how they lived their lives. Read On



David GreenA Letter from Hobby Lobby Stores CEO

By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
Suit was filed Oct 15, 2012

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God's word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week's biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak economy, we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government health care mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines. Read On


"I very much appreciate the Bell Ringer Newsletters. I utilize them, especially on holidays, to share school lessons with the kids, and I've shared this with other home school moms, as well…I have really enjoyed them in the past. Today I visited the website to look at an archived edition to share with the kids for President's Day…I look forward to [a new edition soon]. So, I just wanted to thank you for them. I think they're really great!" — E. P.
