Abbot Tryphon: The Secularization of the American Republic.
Christians must stand firm against this radical takeover.
As an American I have clearly seen, over these past fifty years or so, the secularization of our nation, with the end result that evil is taking root. Consequently, the American people are being deceived by an atheism that is ripping our country from us. America is becoming like the Soviet Union, while Russia is becoming the Christian land America once was.
We Americans are witnessing a progressive extinction of our traditional public and educational institutions, watching to our horror, traditional values replaced with all manner of perversion. Our once proud institutions are now becoming corrupt, just as violence, decadence, and insanity are increasing.
Marxist ideologies and secularist principles are changing our once Christian culture, leading to the state sponsored pressures that will ultimately take away our individual freedoms and liberties.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn, in his “Godlessness: the First Step to the Gulag”, referenced how the communist takeover of Russia was preceded by an atheistic mentality that led to the secularization of Russia, therefore alienating the Russian people from their traditional Christian morality and beliefs. Solzhenitsyn rightly concluded Russia was open to atheism and anti-Christian morality because “Men have forgotten God”.
It is all the more imperative that we fervently pray for our country, and give witness to the importance of Christ in our lives. The secularization of our country must not be allowed to take hold. It must be pushed back by us while there is still time. We must stand firm against this radical takeover, and, as warriors for our faith, we must battle against the destructive power of the evil enemy of our salvation.
With love in Christ,
