An armed conflict by two or more factions with each seeking control over a central government. Each Sovereign State of the South held legal referendums and followed the Orders of Secession.

Christian

An individual who has surrendered himself (pride) for forgiveness and salvation (Isaiah 14: 12-15) to the Sovereign God through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ (Matthew 17:5). One who comprehends and believes that the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus satisfies God as a substitute for our sin. This is the […]

Yankees who entered the South to profit from the personal tragedies of its people.

All Men are Created Equal

No other wording in our founding documents have been more distorted, misrepresented or vilified than these from our Declaration of Independence. Both Federalists and Anti-federalists founders agreed that ours was a Christian Nation whose laws and precepts were from Christian foundations. For the system to operate properly, virtue must prevail. With that understanding it is […]

Abjure the Realm

Abjure the Realm – A process of attitude by which an individual who is sickened by a diseased society and its popular culture personally commits to abstain from participation with that malignant culture. In other words it is a personal boycott. As freedoms are removed and liberties choices are blurred by government mal-education, it is […]

A Response to Bateman’s “Meaning of Oaths”
