RONALD REAGAN'S CHRISTIAN LEGACY
Inspiring Christians, Leaders & Everyday Americans
"But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts [gifted leaders] to men" (Eph 4:7-8)
The entire world, but especially Christians, owe thanks to God for Ronald Reagan. He was a special "gift" to America and the Church (Eph 4:8). His legacy of faith, courage, character, grace, leadship, passion, commitment to Truth and his epochal achievements mightily glorify God. We need to learn from them and build upon them.
After President Carter's "malaise," the revival of faith Ronald Reagan inspired was a miracle! So was his restoration of our fighting men's morale and rebuilding of our national defense. Everyone acknowledges his valiant role in the defeat of worldwide communism.
His much-maligned tax cuts and welfare reform produced unprecedented prosperity at every stratum of American society.
He stood for Life - issuing orders against abortion; an historic "Personhood Proclamation"; and he made use of his "bully pulpit." He energized millions of Christians to get involved in the political process - offering vision and values they could wholeheartedly embrace.
He defended religious liberty at home and abroad with quiet diplomacy. His efforts led to the restoration of voluntary prayer in America's public schools.
Believing "Politics and morality are inseparable," he said, "If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under" (Dallas speech, 8/23/84).
While his body lies in state, liberal pundits feignedly praise him, but they'll soon remount their relentless assault against his values and all who share them. We must pray for President George W. Bush; that the mantle God gave Reagan will rest upon him; and that God will empower him to stand for Truth and to lead, undaunted by enemies at home or abroad, including the contemptuous, media elite and hate-filled liberal politicos who are determined to destroy him
