Today, the very core of our national character is barely recognizable in light of our nation’s founding principles and virtues. The result: confusion and capitulation.
The signs of the times stir grave concerns causing us to ask, “What kind of world, what kind of community, what crises of conscience, what shred of liberty, or opportunity for happiness are ahead for our children?”
Often as American Christians, we are fearful that we are losing the “culture war” and there is no reason for hope for the restoration of our nation. But the Scripture encourages us to “have no fear of them, nor be troubled.” (I Peter 3: 14-16)
In February, FACE sponsored the Reason for Hope Conference in Virginia Beach, Virginia. We gathered with Christian educators, homeschool parents, pastors and leaders from around the country, and we were joined online with friends from around the world as we deepened our understanding of the Biblical roots of our American Christian history and liberty as applied to current issues in education, economics, religion, politics and social issues. This two-day event awakened our commitment to study and teach the principles of God’s Word, and renewed our HOPE in the purpose and future of our nation. America’s founding theologian William Ames taught, “our hope is strengthened, increased, and stirred up by faith, repentance, good works and a good conscience. True and lively hope exists through these.”
God has given us the means of securing the future for our children, and He holds
us accountable. His Word contains the wisdom and knowledge for all of life.
Sadly, the abandonment of principles of the Word of God leaves our current
common wisdom clueless when dealing with the real issues of the day. Confusion
is opposed to hope, and therefore cannot be permitted, especially in our children.
Truly, this is the HOPE: the sure promise of God that His Word stands forever; is
eternally victorious; and is always absolutely sound. Join with us as we safeguard, teach and plant the bedrock principles that sustain liberty.
