Review Of The Book The Theft Of America's Soul by Phil Robertson
On page 29 he says " The entertainment industry mocks religion and celebrates perversity. Universities teach the death of God and Satan with scientific precision. Physicians and psychologists tell us that when we die, the lights go out forever. When you remove Christ from the public square, from courthouses and schools, when you bar truth from it's institutions , should it come as a surprise that the devil steps in to fill the void. "
On page 45 it says " When God is dead, so is his divine truth. And without divine truth, without truth to govern our human conduct, we fall for the devil's lie. Living in that lie, men and women become the worst version of themselves... Devil convinced us there's no absolute moral for sexuality ( which the Bible confines to the marital bed),. There's no absolute truth when life begins ( which the Bible says begins before the first cells are knit in the womb.) There's no absolute truth about the definition of marriage ( which the Bible indicates as being between one man and one woman, til death do they part.)
On page 64 it says " What is the purpose of all this life that the Almighty created for us? Why did he give us plants and animals to subdue for our own provision? The answer is simple.: God wanted us to understand his goodness. "
On page 70 it says" Recognize the beauty in the life of a fellow man. Remember that his blood ain't yours to take, wether the blood of an unborn baby or elderly woman minding her business in a Texas church. Choose life. And when you do, watch as God saved your soul. And then give thanks."
On page 76 it says " When we ignore the God of the universe and Chase our own desires, we fall under the illusion of the evil one. Common sense seems illogical. And in this delusion we become blind to the truth of God."
On page 79 it says " Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and we're inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men,and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (Romans 1:26-27)"
On page 85 it says " it's no secret that I've taken fire over my beliefs and hatred for reporting what the scripture says. I don't hate anyone whose mired in what the Bible calls sin. In fact, I love them. If I truly hated them, I wouldn't share the truth with them"
On page 100 it says " Suppose a Nation in some distant region shoul e the Bible for their only law books...to justice and kindness and charity toward his fellow men...what a paradise would this region be... Adams believed that if our country relied on scriptures... We'd be more sober, frugal, hard-working, law-abiding,kind, generous, reverent,and loving people. Doesn't that sound like the country you want to live in? It sounds like the closets thing to heaven we could experience this side of death if you ask me."
On page 125 it says " The courts have declared it is unconstitutional for teachers and principals to lead Christian prayer in public school. We've certainly seen a rise in violence, drug use,and mass shootings in public schools since the 1960s and '70s...The supreme Court has declared that judges and courthouses cannot publicly display the 10 commandments. An especially odd decision since a likeness of Moses carrying the 10 commandments is displayed on the frieze in the supreme Court building. Could there be any better place to display the 10 commandments than the very courthouses where a criminal will be tried and convicted for lying, stealing or killing? I don't think so."
On page 127 it says " Wether a Christian Baker has the right to refuse service to a same sex couple getting married. I don't hate any member of the gay community. In fact, I love them, and want them to know the truth of God's word, how it might set them free. So, though, I would bake the cake for the couple, I wouldn't write anything on it that would make me compromise the truth of God's law-the marriage is between a man and a woman. And if the couple asked why, I'd tell them it's because it's the law of God which is unchanging..."
