A house divided cannot stand, stated Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He said there are two roads on which mankind may travel - the straight and narrow and the broad and the wide. One leads to destruction and hell, the other to Eternal Life, Heaven and home! He also said that if you are for Him you can't be against Him. Choose wisely, my friend! -- Pastor Max Solbrekken

America’s Coming Civil War
Friday, July 13, 2012

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

Abe Lincoln used those words in 1858 to describe a country that was careening toward civil war. 

Now we’re a house divided again and another civil war is coming, with the 2012 election as its Gettysburg.

Call it America’s coming civil war between the Makers and the Takers.

On one side are those who create wealth, America’s private sector–the very ones targeted by President Obama’s tax hikes announced Monday.

On the other are the public employee unions; left-leaning intelligentsia who see the growth of government as index of progress; 

and the millions of Americans now dependent on government through a growing network of government transfer payments, from Medicaid and Social Security to college loans and corporate bailouts and handouts (think GM and Solyndra).
