Oak Leaf 18         The Relevance of a 224 Year Old Constitution        

The Relevance of a 224 Year Old Constitution (by Hombre Liggett) - An ongoing argument over modern political and social issues centers on whether the U.S. Constitution is relevant in today’s world. With all the advancements in technology, communication, transportation, commerce, and in the medical field, some argue that the Founding Fathers could not have foreseen what would be necessary for the United States to remain a healthy society 224 years in the future.

Oak Leaf 17         Biblical Duty        

Biblical Duty (by Lloyd Phillips) - As you know, if we can change a person’s mind, we will change their actions. One of the most powerful tools a Christian has is the power to pull down strongholds or change beliefs and thereby change actions of people.

Oak Leaf 16         After America, There is No Place to Go        

After America, There is No Place to Go (by Kitty Werthmann) - What I am about to tell you is something you've probably never heard or will ever read in history books. I believe that I am an eyewitness to history.

Oak Leaf #15         A Tale of Two Revolutions        

A Tale of Two Revolutions (by Lloyd Phillips) - Both the American and the French Revolutions had a significant effect on the history of mankind but in very divergent ways. The American Revolution was the first time in history that men created a government based on the principles that God was sovereign over man and man was sovereign over government. The Declaration of Independence placed before mankind a language so simple that any could comprehend that all mankind was equal in the sight of God and therefore had a right to expect equal treatment from their government. It explained that rights were given by God and not by government, and certain rights were inalienable, including those foundational rights of life, liberty, and property.

Oak Leaf #14         "What", and "Who"        

"What", and "Who" (by James Robison) - Already, many candidates and major media are moving into full swing for next year’s elections. We must first understand what must be done before we can identify who can best help do it. Perhaps as important as any time since our founding, those who believe in divine providence and eternal principles must become well-informed and actively involved in the political process. Christians, pastors, and all church leaders must totally reject the lie that “separation of church and state” means people of faith must remain silent, uninformed, and uninvolved. Those who recognize truth and stand for it can turn the tide.

Oak Leaf #13         On These Shores        

On These Shores (by Mary Anne Hardiman) - In his eighth annual address as President, George Washington said, "A primary object . . . should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing . . . than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?"

Oak Leaf #12         A Public Law, the Constitution and the Oak Tree        

A Public Law, the Constitution and the Oak Tree (by Bill NeSmith) - There remains a great need in America, namely that our citizens understand our Constitution and the price that was paid to create it. All effort must be initiated to redeem those things forgotten and to shed light on things presently unknown. It is important to understand the history of America, our founding fathers, and the foundations on which our country was built. History is a powerful tool that can be used to redeem the past and stabilize the future.

Oak Leaf #11         Corporate Jets and the Economy        

Corporate Jets and the Economy (by Rick Joyner) - One of the most accurate barometers of our country’s economic health is the number of corporate aircraft flying. When general aviation is growing, the economy is growing. When general aviation is under stress, so is the economy. There may not be another industry that is such an accurate barometer of our total economic health because there are few things as vital to our economic health as corporate jets. Why?

Oak Leaf #10         The Eagle Is Molting        

The Eagle Is Molting (by Rick Joyner)

As Sammy Rodriguez shared in one of our first Oak Summits, we are not following the donkey or the elephant, but we will follow the Lamb. This has been our resolve. Even so, it would be disingenuous to not admit that the majority of Oak members are conservative and Republican. However, we do have many who consider themselves independents, and quite a few who are registered Democrats. For these we are thankful. An eagle needs a right wing and a left wing to fly, and so does America.

Oak Leaf #9         What is Motivating Your Patriotism?        

What is Motivating Your Patriotism? (by Hombre Liggett) - When I was running for the U.S. Congress in the 2010 primary here in Ohio, I had the chance to speak to many of the county Republican Parties around Ohio's 18th Congressional District. My message was constant throughout. A major part of the fix for our nation's unraveling is neither the Democratic nor the Republican Party, but our fix will be in following the Constitution.
