AMERICA BLESS GOD


Lady Liberty seems to be hunching over a little more each year with ever diminishing flickering flame. The brave lady feebly tries to remind us of the great work still cut out for us as aggressive Atheists work tirelessly to silence the Christian/ Evangelical  voice.

Lately, during  sleepless nights praying over our nation, I ponder how our nation fell to such depths. God reminds me of the banning of prayer in school which was the first death knell to America.  Madeline Murray O’Hare was responsible for her aggressive stand to ban school prayer in 1662 and later another ban in 1963. Ironically, her son, William J. Murray, was a strong Christian and the president of the Religious Freedom Coalition in Washington D.C.  He advocated Christian rights internationally.

The second death knell was the Roe VS Wade decision passed in January 22, 1973. Since that infamous day, voiceless, unborn children continue to be barbarically slaughtered since the  passing of Roe Vs Wade in 1973.

Of course, no patriotic American will ever forget the day the Twin Towers fell in an infamous attack from foreign terrorists whose goal is to destroy our way of life. Evangelical TV preachers, prophets, economists and political strategists predict America’s total collapse very soon. Most go about their business oblivious to the ominous and ever-increasingly frightening signs of a nation who is almost at the precipice of bankruptcy!

Bills are being passed faster than we can keep up. Gay marriage is now legal in six states,  Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, Iowa and most recently, New Hampshire.

Our forefathers would surely have turned in their graves if they saw America’s  staggering immorality and decadence.  Never before has there been such a cascade of news headlines and documentaries depicting the alarming sins of a generation caught up in sexual addiction, pornography, violence, murder, economic fiascos, (Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac scandals) and economic distress.

Greed, instant gratification and  addiction to technology are responsible for the national debt, bankruptcies,  divorce and broken families and things will continue to worsen as people live in a their fantasy world.  We will be paying the Piper very soon if we do not radically change the way we think about our spirituality,  family, health, economy and environment.

Another alarming bain has been the sex-trafficking of young girls and women.  “America’s Most Wanted” recently aired a moving two hour documentary about the plight of female victims caught in the dark net of prostitution. Pimp predators roam the city streets seeking runaways and down-trodden young women who they soon recruit and exploit sexually for huge profits.  I’d heard about this rampant trade in India and other third-world nations, but had no idea this human-right violation was happening right here in America.

imagine the injustice of young female victims being arrested, but the pimps are rarely held accountable. Many young girls were courageous enough to share their stories. I was dumbfounded listening to their horror stories of the inhuman treatment of their pimps who booked them for many men in a single day! Often the men refused to use condoms and  the  girls became pregnant. Many of them were forced to get abortions.

Some of the young women rose from their misery and have started organizations to help victims. Gems is one started by a former trafficking victim who has given many young women a chance to start over.

Pornography is another  insidious fungus weaving itself into the spirits of a mostly male-dominated minority. including pastors.  Christian females are also joining the ranks.

We are indeed entering the land of no return. We must come to our senses and do some serious souls searching. We must sit still in quiet and meditate on the decisions we are making and choices we have made.

There is incomprehensible suffering everywhere, and no respite. Who can know the anguish of a parent whose child has been abducted  by pedophiles or seducing perverts.  What goes on in the mind, ( and behind closed doors of a pedophile about to make his move on a unknowing child).

The media and especially the Church must step up to the plate. It is time for the church to take a stand against the evil that is fast devouring our innocents.

There has been a lot of bashing and finger-pointing on the pages of Facebook people. Evangelicals  are fussing  and “unfriending” each other regarding insignificant issues of doctrine, yet totally  ignoring the more serious matters of human rights, justice and advocacy of the orphans, widows and unborn.

This should not be so. We must come together in unified love.  I wrote a provocative songs for my MOD PROPHET CD, called “Policing the Other”  It rather than address their own large sins.  We need to start to address the evil cancers which are weakening our society. Our true enemy is Satan. Don’t curse the darkness…light your candle into the blackness of rampant crime and immorality of our culture.

We continue to sing “God Bless America” with the verve of an unembarrassed Cosmopolitan woman wearing nothing but a string bikini. But, how much longer will God bless America?

We are under attack in the deepest sense. Our own president has called our beloved Constitution a “flawed” document.  Our freedoms will come to an end if we do not fight back.  We must not allow  Lady Liberty’s flame to flicker out.

Will God bless America with her blood-stained and vile robes?

WORK is GOOD!


In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He created light and darkness and separated them into morning and evening. He created water and land, then vegetation. The universe and all its expanse was created and then creatures were put on the land and in the sea. Lastly, God created Adam from the dust of the earth. God put Adam in the garden to work it and take care of it. This is the first episode of GOD giving work to the man. God Himself ordained work at the very beginning!

Adam did not spend his days sitting around idly,  there was work to be done tilling the garden and even naming the animals! We can further expound on the realistic need for work as per Saint Paul’s discourses in the new testament.

When Paul addressed the church of Thessalonica, he rebuked those who ambled about idly. He commanded that they earn the bread they eat, (Thes. 3:6-12) Paul said, “If a man does not work, he shall not eat and also that they should never tire of doing what is right.”

I’m curious about the reasons our modern church condones welfare for able-bodied people and even worse,  have yet to any pastors rebuking lazy and idle people! It’s no surprise that the present social  system is not working, but the church hasn’t yet admitted that welfare and is not Biblical.

We must remember that provision is commanded, but the specified for certain people.  James 1:27, Tells us that true religion is looking after the orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unsoiled from the world. I t says nothing about providing for able-bodied men, (or women for that matter).  The Bible directs us that even women and mothers have their work cut out for them, thus  Paul sets down the ground rules for the work order for the whole community.

1 Tim. 1:6  Tells us that widows cannot be provided for unless they were over sixty, faithfully supported her husband, provided hospitality, raised children, washing the feet of saints, and devoting herself to all kinds of service. God ordained everyone with a job to do. Even the children were commanded to learn and mind their parents.

Part of the problem is non-supervision of the children of  dual-income families and no mentor ship of children from single-parent households.  Whose fault is that…the church!  We are responsible for taking under our wing and teaching children and parents. We have greatly neglected the duty to our converts in place of embracing leisure and  pleasure.

God’s people, (and all people) perish for lack of knowledge. Again and again this refrain rings in my heart and applies to every person God created  in His precious plan!

Another problem is the lack of modeling and raising children under the admonition of the Lord. When little children see laziness, they emulate their parents.  The church must model godly and honest entrepreneurship or our way of life as it is will collapse. The working and middle class are already strained by the illegal immigrants, incarcerated and able-bodied dependents who are draining our economy with all the food stamps and health care.  The FDA, medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies are also  perpetuating sedentary lifestyles, poor health and obesity, but that is subject for another blog. If this trend continues, America will surely collapse.

We can balk and mock the laws set down by God, but He originally created a world and systems of order. His perfect way is without flaw and without chaos. We, in our own selfish rebellious perspectives have strayed from His wise and  glorious path and through neglect are paying heavy consequences. When we are obedient, trusting and following His commands we will always enjoy prosperity and provision. The fear, (reverence) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and when we adopt our thoughtless mindsets and opinions of how to run a country, community and family, we will ultimately fail. All the answers to our well-being are in God’s word.

My father, Teofilo Ferrer Cepeda was born in Puerto-Rico in 1929 to an industrious, God-fearing Catholic mother.  He was a born entrepreneur at the tender age of 8, selling produce from his parents farm to support his mother and seven brothers and sisters! Papito handed down his strict, no-nonsense work ethic to me and though as a rebellious teenager, despised having to work hard every summer vacation, I now enjoy the fruits and lessons from my beloved father. Today, I’m proud to give God and him the credit for nurturing a deeply-ingrained creative and productive spirit that has supported me through the many storms of my life!

This American culture seems to have bred in its citizens and new immigrants a lazy and selfish mentality. When my mother arrived here from Germany with my father, she didn’t know a word of English. She learned all she could by watching TV. Today,  after many decades of faithful service to her job, she is a supervisor.   The spirit of entrepreneurship and productivity has greatly diminished and I wonder how did the welfare mentality start and why do the recipients think the world owes them? College students graduate expecting a $60,000 a year job, without doing a thing? I’ve seen inmates at the sides of the freeway  picking up garbage and litter.  They should be taught a skill to learn to be self-sufficient How are the inmates being supported? The taxpayers!

I say teach these men the value of productivity. Teach them to build their living quarters, teach them how to grow their own food.  Gifted and skilled men and women should be the  carpenters, farmers, teachers and soul sculptors.  Our welfare system is not working and it’s time for the think tanks to start thinking logically with what God had in mind in the beginning!

The church has a responsibility to rehabilitate the broken, lost and dying. Mother Teresa is a perfect example of one voice who spoke out into the darkness and touched millions of lives in her lifetime.   Her solution was mentoring the young sisters under her to model and give a loving hands on approach to every person who came with a need.  The  church must step up to the plate, not giving a random hand outs but mentoring with tough love. we must once again instill  values of honor, dignity and hard, dedicated work. God has placed a purpose in each and every person. The trick is helping that person to find their niche.

Let us thoughtfully reinstate a pattern for the next generation to follow. There is still time to turn this Titanic around!
