Sabin Geyman, author of Testing the Spirits: Exposing Dark Sayings & Embracing the Light of Jesus, suggests Americans embark on a new Protestant Reformation, as a remedy for our ailing society, schools, and institutions.
Online PR News – 09-January-2013 – Seattle, Washington – Could our forefathers have been a little sharper than we think? Could the likes of Benjamin Rush, Samuel Adams, John Jay, and Noah Webster actually hold the keys to fixing the aimless morass known as American culture?
Scholar Sabin Geyman delves into America's fascinating, and inspiring, past to find answers for the current malaise in the country.
Exposing the debilitating effects of idol-worship (including personality-worship), Geyman calls for a return to the Bible in his new book, Testing the Spirits: Exposing Dark Sayings & Embracing the Light of Jesus.
Dr. Benjamin Rush, physician and signer of the Declaration of Independence, noted that "the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government ... is the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible." Noah Webster, early American educator, likewise commented: "No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people. The opinion that human reason, left without the constant control of divine laws and commands, will preserve a just administration, secure freedom and other rights, restrain men from violations of laws and constitutions, and give duration to a popular government, is as chimerical [unlikely] as the most extravagant ideas that enter the head of a maniac...."
"It seems few people even know our Founding Fathers' names anymore," says Geyman. "They're more likely to be enthralled by the latest break-up of a rock-and-roll singer, the sporting habits of a big-government, freedom-destroying hypnotist, or the latest pagan symbol that floated in from the Far East."
Testing the Spirits: Exposing Dark Sayings & Embracing the Light of Jesus is a useful antidote to the prevailing any-god-will-do atmosphere and the politically socialist standards of the day. Americans have been conditioned to ignore and despise their excellent Judeo-Christian heritage--but Jesus is still the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and the right way is still trusting in Jesus, not in some Constitution-ripping megalomaniac.
Noah Webster was right.
