Helms: Each Has a Role In America’s Spiritual Reawakening


Each of us has a part to play in bringing about the great spiritual awakening that must come upon this land before we are brought to our knees by the chastisements of God. Each of us must place our hope and reliance in God, and in that hope and reliance turn our energies to restoring a government and society that serves us as sons of God. …

Faith and courage are not dispensed by civil governments or revolutions, but by the Spirit of God. Americans as a people must once again rise up and reclaim their nation from the slothful, divisive, prodigal, and treacherous individuals who have bartered away our freedoms for a mess of pottage …

We must return to the Author of Liberty to enjoy once again what once we had so abundantly.
